Pulp Fiction Thursday: Blame it on Jude

Yeah, I know that I’ve been doing movies recently but Jude sent this to me and it tickled my funny bone:

Sin In Space

Mom, Apple Pie…and AK-47s

From Album4

Whenever even the most modest of restrictions or regulations of guns is discussed you see counter arguments of this kind…yet, and sorry to be a bit ugly here, Nancy Lanza owned an assault rifle, but it did not assist at all in her personal defense.

While I don’t own a gun myself, I’m more than willing to let people own guns…but when they start fetishizing and fantasizing about being ultimate vigilantes…then I have a problem. Movies like Dirty Harry or Death Wish are myths. But a significant segment of the public has taken these myths to heart. And THAT’S the problem: a stubborn belief that justice has been perverted by “librul” insistence on rights, due process, rule of law (not to mention therapy for terrorists), and that only cold steel dispensing hot lead will save us. But reality is far more complicated, as we unfortunately see almost every day…

Men Suck, And It’s Your Fault, Ladies, Because of Babies

You know what has been missing from our discussions about ladies in the workplace? The perspective of a middle-aged white man who thinks bitches be trippin’ to have menz babies:

Look, most grown men are still 12-year-old boys inside. Most men still expect their working spouse to assume responsibility for the household chores. Most men turn immediately to their wives when their kid has the sniffles (“you don’t expectme to miss work, do you?”). Most men raise their eyebrows and give each other a nudge when a good-looking girl appears at a meeting. We check out the way they’re dressed. We’re shocked (still) when they make off-color jokes (she seemed like such a nice girl!). And most men still don’t feel comfortable golfing and drinking with their female colleagues because we can’t make jokes about sex and farting.

First of all, you’re not talking about most “grown men.” You’re talking about the caricature of idiot man-child that the sitcoms of the 90s have tried to convince us is the true picture of most men, a caricature lots of lazy, entitled assholes use to excuse their crappy behavior instead of being grown-ups and taking responsibility for themselves.

I keep saying this: I HATE THIS FUCKING DODGE THAT MEN ARE CHILDREN OR PETS. Men are not secretly little boys. Men are people. They are insecure, or confident, or good at stuff around the house, or bad at stuff around the house, just like women. Just like everybody. There is no goddamn two-for-one deal in the womb on a penis and a Peter Pan complex. As sick as I am of how this allows lousy shitheels to get away with treating women like dirt, I’m also sick of how it disappears the good men who don’t try to make themselves out the intellectual equivalents of a bucket of KFC because herf derfAccording to Jim.

(If you’re not comfortable drinking and golfing with the chicks in your office, consider why they don’t seem comfortable drinking and golfing with you. Possibly they can drink you under the table and don’t want to embarrass the boss, and fuck golf, seriously, it’s the dumbest thing ever.)

How could this story get worse, you ask? Oh, just wait, because sometimes dumb bitches who bring themselves to the office to make men feel uncomfortable go and get themselves pregnant, apparently by magic, and men who are not fucking them are not always privy to when this will happen exactly:

I am not embarrassed to say that when I interview a young woman, my first thought is “what happens when/if she gets pregnant?” This is a legitimate business question. Right or wrong, the fact is that men delegate mothering to women. And most women (thank God) want that job too—it’s natural. So am I wrong to ask if that smart young lady who I’m about to invest in plans to start a family anytime soon and whether she will actually come back to work in six weeks after she gives birth? Or ever? I need to make plans otherwise. Allow me to ask that question. Oh by the way, guys should face the same scrutiny about their “paternity” plans too.

But they never do, do they? Does anyone look at a young man, married or engaged, and start calculating how long he has before he knocks up that pretty girl and starts needing to get home for soccer practices? PLEASE. Men who love their children and want time to participate in those children’s lives are like UNICORNS, amirite laydees? Women are just naturally made for that sort of shit, whereas men are made to drink, golf, and talk about sex and farting.

(If only men participated in creating a pregnancy in some way. If only they had some role in the process, then they might not be so terribly inconvenienced by it all. Like, say they had an appendage, like a penis, and they could choose to use or not use it for its reprodutive purpose. And then, if they insisted on using it, if only there was some way to legally and safely prevent pregnancy, like, say, sheathing that penis in some kind of protective garb.)

If you want to ensure a woman in your employ comes back to work after maternity leave, here’s a radical fucking idea: Try to make the job worth coming back to in comparison to an itty bitty human who she likes very much. Try to give her enough paid time off so that she can decide how best to arrange her life around the new person in the house and no, six weeks is not enough time. Try to value her as an employee, as if you know her and care about her well-being.

Most of all, try not to make out like she’s done you a personal wrong by reproducing, unlike a male boss of mine from a few years back, who used to act like women got pregnant to spite him. First of all, fucko was the one making the hiring decisions, and second of all, I sincerely doubt any of the female employees who did get knocked up were thinking of him in their moments of wedded bliss. Sometimes it’s not all about you, boss.

BE A GOOD BOSS, and maybe she will come back. Or she won’t, in which case you’ve lost an employee, and the world will not end, and the earth will keep turning and we’ll all get over it someday.

But hey, maybe it’s all hopeless anyway because women are so PRIVATE about this stuff:

Most women will not become CEOs of Fortune 500 companies. The numbers already prove that. A significant reason why is that grown, responsible men are still adolescent boys at heart. But it’s not all our fault. Because while we are still prohibited from asking reasonable questions like “do you plan to start a family anytime soon and what impact will that have on my business?” there will always be discrimination in the workplace.

What does this guy think a woman who is being nattered at by an interviewer about pregnancy plans is going to say? WHY YES I PLAN TO GET PREGNANT IMMEDIATELY UPON BEING HIRED. Nobody’s gonna say that. And preventing you from asking is not oppressing your freedom to do business. You are not Rosa Parks. Nobody is victimizing you with a nursing bra.

Though after reading that, I certainly wish someone would.

‘Be Courageous’

I already admired former Congreswoman Gabrielle Giffords but she is officially my new hero:

I don’t cry very often but her guts and grace in speaking out so haltingly but eloquently made me cry a bloody river. What a broad. And her astronaut hubby is pretty awesome too.

For some odd reason, thinking about the Tucson shooting and its best known victim gave me an earworm. I know. I’m weird like that. It put Killer’s Eyes by the Kinks in my head. Ray Davies was inspired to write this haunting song after seeing Mehmet Ali Agca, the man who tried to assassinate Pope John Paul II in 1981, on the news. Agca had creepy and disturbing eyes, just like Jared Loughner:

Culliver’s Travels

San Francisco 49ers player Chris Culliver is already running away from his imbecilic homophobic comments. Under pressure from his team and coaching staff, he issued an apology. One thing that struck me about his idiotic remarks was how he pretended that *he* had the power to ban gays from the Niners locker room. Who died and made you coach, asshole? Here’s how the story played out at the San Francisco Chronicle’s web site, SF Gate.com:

49ers coach Jim Harbaugh has, in the past, said that gay players
would be welcome on his team, but a clip aired on the Artie Lange show
on Tuesday night seemed to indicate that cornerback Chris Culliver
doesn’t agree.

When asked by shock jock Lange at Super Bowl media day if there were
any gay players on the team, Culliver answered, “No, we don’t got no gay
people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do.

“Can’t be with that sweet stuff. Nah … can’t be … in the locker room man. Nah.”

Asked in November how he would react to coaching an openly gay
player, Harbaugh said, “I have no discrimination in my heart. I ask all
players to play through their own personality and be who they are. What
you ask of a player is to be a great team player and be a good player.
My expectations (of a gay player) would be the same.”

Other players asked the same question for a 49ers digital magazine story said they would also accept an openly gay player.

Here is a statement from the 49ers about Culliver’s comments:

“The San Francisco 49ers reject the comments that were
made yesterday, and have addressed the matter with Chris. There is no
place for discrimination within our organization at any level. We have
and always will proudly support the LGBT community.”

And here is a statement released Wednesday afternoon by Culliver:

“The derogatory comments I made yesterday were a
reflection of thoughts in my head, but they are not how I feel. It has
taken me seeing them in print to realize that they are hurtful and ugly.
Those discriminating feelings are truly not in my heart. Further, I
apologize to those who I have hurt and offended, and I pledge to learn
and grow from this experience.”

I did not know that about Jim Harbaugh but good on him. He *does* coach in the unofficial capitol of gay America, after all. It’s just a pity that he has a Lilliputian like Culliver on his team.

At least he’s consistent

The Junior Senator from the Gret Stet of Louisiana has chimed in with his views on the current immigration debate:

Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) slammed his colleague, Marco Rubio (R-FL), over his support for an immigration reform bill in a radio interview with Laura Ingraham.

“I love and respect Marco, I think he’s just amazingly naïve on this
issue,” Vitter said. “This is the same old formula that we’ve dealt with
before… promises of enforcement never materialize, the amnesty happens
immediately the millisecond the bill is signed into the law.”

Vitter said that if Rubio, who appeared on the show defending his
plan earlier the same day, believes illegal immigrants would not rapidly
gain citizenship under his plan, “I think he’s nuts.”

I wonder if Bitter Vitter would change his position if the bill gave undocumented trollops and dominatrixes a path to citizenship? Probably not given this attack ad from his 2010 re-election campaign:

‘That Is How I First Came to the Senate’

800px-John_Kerry_at_Balkh_University_in_May_2011

John Kerry, delivering a blistering, fierce, loving, rambling, inspiring farewell address to the Senate today:

I came to the National Mall in 1971 with fellow veterans who wanted only to talk to our leaders about the war. President Nixon tried to kick us off the Mall. We knocked on door after door on Capitol Hill, but too often couldn’t get an audience with our representatives. A precious few, including Ted Kennedy and Hubert Humphrey, came to where we were camped out and heard what we had to say. And I saw first-hand that our political process works only when leaders are willing to listen — to each other, but also to everyone else.

That is how I first came to the Senate — not with my vote, but with my voice.

This guy fought in the nastiest war the world had to offer at the time and, age 27, came home and took the immensely unpopular stand that this war was bullshit and had to end, and he acted on it. Nobody particularly liked that then.

Nobody particularly likes it now. Look at the way we treat the anti-war movement in this country. Look at the contempt with which we treat those who stand up to power in this country. Look at the way we justify others’ suffering by using our own: I went through this, so why should you be spared it? I fought, so why shouldn’t you fight? I killed, so why shouldn’t you kill? I was wounded, so why shouldn’t you bleed?

How many times do we hear this? I got hurt, it toughened me up, so why are you being such a baby about it? I survived, so quit whining. I don’t talk about my problems, so why should I listen to yours? You don’t understand what I went through. Maybe you need to suffer some, so you do. How many times do we hear this? How many times do we say it? It poisons us day by day.

Very, very rare is it said that I suffered, so that youshouldn’t have to. I fought, not so that I could rest but so thatyou could. During his confirmation hearings Kerry talked about working with McCain, who had every reason to hate the Vietnamese, to normalize relations with Vietnam. He understands that the tests aren’t when all things considered you could give a damn. They’re when you loathe the prospect with every fiber of your being and lay down that loathing anyway. It’s not a burden if it isn’t heavy, but forgiveness isn’t for others, it’s for you, and learning that makes you a grown-up, and these men grew up together.

Pierce today:

We have an embassy in Vietnam right now because John Kerry (and, to be fair, John McCain) got the United States to look at Vietnam as a country, and not simply as a war. (If people had done that same thing in, say, 1965, neither Kerry nor McCain might be in the Senate right now, and millions of other people would still be alive.)

And if we had elected him in 2004, if we had managed to be just a little bit less shit-stupid and scared, we’d have a better country now. I felt like 2004 was our chance to stop it; for all my joy in the good things Obama has done and in the prospect of further Democratic gains and more importantly progressive Democratic gains, I felt like 2004-2009 was a time when all the horrors got cemented and maybe some of them might not have been.

The late great Steve Gilliard put it best, ina pieceI keep going back to whenever the “Kerry was a shitty candidate, blah blah blah” argument comes up:

I do understand the frustration of liberals who wonder why they can’t run a real liberal for the White House. Of course, these liberals miss the point that Kerry IS a liberal, a real, bona fide liberal with one of the most liberal voting records in the Senate’s history to match. He’s far more liberal than Bill Clinton. In fact, if a few of these people were less reflexsive and contemptuous, they might find that Kerry was to theleft of Howard Dean on many issues over his career.

I’m also tired of the lesser of two evils crap. Kerry isn’t evil, he isn’t a crook, he doesn’t bang interns in his office. He’s stood for most of what the left wing of the Democratic Party has stood for since 1972. Unlike many rich people, he didn’t stick his money in his pocket and walk away.

Now we have four years of him as Secretary of State. And after that? I still have my Kerry-Edwards sign. Just saying.

They’ll love this back in San Francisco

Niner player opens mouth, inserts foot at Super Bowl media day:

San Francisco 49ers cornerbackChris Culliver has reportedly made inflammatory comments regarding homosexuality in football just a few days before Super Bowl XLVII.

Shock jock Artie Lange revealed he had interviewed Culliver at media day
Tuesday and aired a segment on his show that night, where the player
insisted that any gay players would not be welcome on the team.

I don’t do the gay guys man,” said Culliver, whose Niners play theBaltimore Ravens on Sunday. “I don’t do that. No, we don’t got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do.

“Can’t be with that sweet stuff. Nah…can’t be…in the locker room man. Nah.”

When quizzed by Lange whether any homosexual athletes would need to keep
their sexuality a secret in football, Culliver responded: “Yeah, come
out 10 years later after that.”

Yo, dude, your team has many gay fans, and the odds are that you have at least one gay team mate. I’d avoid Castro Street if I were you…

Triple Dip

Triple dip may sound like a tower of yummy ice cream but it refers to what’s what with the British economy. They’re facing a triple dip recession because of the austerity policies of the Tory/Lib Dem Coalition government. The formerly center-left Lib Dems were supposed to restrain the Tory’s Thatcherite impulses but they joined hands and jumped off the cliff with them.

Why am I banging on about this? Our conservative are big on cutting and austerity and it’s not gonna work viz Dean Baker in the Guardian:

The news that the UK, with negative growth in the fourth quarter of 2012, faces the prospect of a triple-dip recession,
should be the final blow to the intellectual credibility of deficit
hawks. You just can’t get more wrong than this flat-earth bunch of
economic policy-makers.

They’re pretty much batting zero. They
failed to foresee the collapse of housing bubbles in the US and Europe
and its consequent downturn. They grossly underestimated its severity
after it hit. And their policy prescription of austerity has been shown
to be wrong everywhere that applied it: in the US, the eurozone and,
especially, the UK.

By all rights, these folks should be laughed
out of town. They should be retrained for a job more suited to their
skill set – preferably, something that doesn’t involve numbers, or
people.

Of course, the Guardian is a left of center publication and has <drum roll> Socialists <shudder> on its staff so the GOP won’t listen to them but the UK is a cautionary tale for any sane folks out there. I cannot believe that I used GOP and sane in the same sentence.

Thus far we’ve avoided a double dip recession thanks to President Obama and Senate Democrats but if it comes it will be topped with nuts. Wingnuts.

CNN: End Of An Error

Hey gang, CNN might be getting palatable again! I say “might” because you never know what fuckery the bean counters have in mind, but it’s hard not to see the exit of Erick Erickson, Mary Matalin, and James Carville as a good sign.

I gave up on CNN a long, long time ago. Shit like this would piss me off to no end.

I’d check back with them on occasion, but they always seemed to be working hard at fashioning themselves as a Fox News Lite, down to the revolving door that saw CNN anchors and hosts leave for Fox: Glenn Beck, Lou Dobbs, Bill Hemmer (by the way, I’m sure y’all will be shocked to learn that Erickson is landing at Fox).

So numerous were CNN’s sins against journalism that I have two pages of blog posts devoted to them. My absolute favorite, if you’ll excuse the blogwhore, was this moment in 2002 when then-CNN anchor Connie Chung berated tennis star (and U.S. citizen) Martina Navratilova for opposing the Iraq invasion. Do give it a look, it’s a shocking display of pro-war propaganda and journalistic malfeasance.

I don’t know what Jeff Zucker has planned for CNN. Will we get more up-to-the-minute breaking news bulletins of “Balloon Boy” stories? Or will CNN be the place for grown-up conversation? Time will tell.

gay men have a bitchiness to them that straight men do not,

which to me makes them absolutely not qualified to serve in the

And how did the Obama cabal respond after the arrest of Manning? By
immediately overturning DADT.

Republicans to Immigrants: We Love You Because We’re Losing

Republicans, admitting they’re for immigration reform not for the sake of reform, or immigrants, but to stay in power:

No one better embodied the shifting politics on this issue than McCain, who led the 2007 immigration push with the late Ted Kennedy only to follow his party to the right and oppose even a bill granting a path to citizenship for young undocumented immigrants, the DREAM Act, in 2010. Now he’s on the side of reform once again, and publicly welcoming support from former opponent President Obama, who will deliver his own remarks on immigration reform Tuesday in Nevada.

Asked why he felt he had a better chance of success this time, McCain offered a blunt response.

“Elections,” he said. “Elections. The Republican Party is losing the support of our Hispanic citizens.”

Yeah. It’s not like it’s the right thing to do. It’s not like these are PEOPLE, with contributions to make to our society and needs we should try to mind. It’s not like this is something we actually need to give a fuck about beyond the electoral college.

It’s all about us, after all. Us, the white us, the Republican us, the us that needs votes and needs to win elections. If that need happens to dovetail with your need for a job and a driver’s license and not getting arrested for going to school, then hey, we’re all good, but don’t mistake our motivation for a new, deeper understanding of the human condition. We’re just here for the votes.

Schmucks.
