The Douchebaggery List For January

Big Red (featured here on the left) has been working overtime during the month of January. The year has started off with a bang when it comes to sleaze and lies from World, National, and local leaders. I won't even attempt to analyze the SOTU address from Obama on Wednesday night. It's been parsed to the point of being ridiculous. But... here are a few others that did make the shit list below. They are in no particular order other than they're all equally stupid.

From Hotair.com - filmfaker Michael Moore, the huge bastion of Socialism and Anti-Capitalism has been approved for a film grant/subsidy from the Michigan Film Office. This is the equivalent of the late Robert Mapplethorpe and the NEA grants that allowed his extremely controversial exhibits depicting Golden Showers and Gay men... all on the taxpayers dime. If Michael Moore's crocumentaries can't stand on their own merits why should the Taxpayers of Michigan subsidize them? The next time Michael needs a few bucks for one of his "fake but true" movies I suggest he should apply to his hero Raul Castro of Cuba. Michigan is nearly bankrupt and getting broker by the day thanks to the collapse of the Auto industry. No hypocrisy here. Just move along.

Also from Hotair - "IPCC based claims on a student dissertation and a magazine article". It seems the people who advocate AGW have used another dubious source to support their findings on Glacial Melting and have shredded the truth again. This time the evidence comes from none other than Mountaineers and a geography student working on a Masters degree. Since when did anecdotal evidence become the benchmark by which scientific study is based? A couple of years ago I was ridiculing Al Gore because of his asinine statement that the "debate is over". It seems the snake-oil salesmen of the IPCC have just about as much credibility when they cite evidence such as this to support their claims of Climate Change and Glacial Melting. Every new lie just burries the AGW movement a little deeper.

From the L.A. Times - "Book fair draws an array of anarchists. Diverse ideologies were on display at the festival in Barnsdall Art Park. Some attendees said the event itself proved the need for revolution: 'We don't fight here. We hold book fairs."
Can you say cliche? The Times article featured a group of self-styled Anarchists that were straight out of Central Casting in Hollywood. I'm surprised that the now irrelevant Joan Baez didn't show up and sing the great songs of Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan. You have an assortment of balding middle-aged hippies with pony tails, the proverbial pissed off feminist, environmentalists dancing around seeds in hope of good germination. I could go on forever when it comes to these clowns. And the underlying theme/hope was we need more fussing and fighting in America. These assholes didn't offer up any solutions - just the wistful longing for more violence and disruption. But hey - isn't that what Anarchists are all about? No answers - just a longing for the "good ole days". Bill Ayers would have been proud. And BTW, shouldn't these jerks be stealing each other's books instead of paying for them? After all, they're Anarchists - aren't they?

Also from the L.A. Times - "State lawmakers take aim at free parking. There is too much of it, they say, and it encourages people to drive instead of taking the bus, walking or bicycling. A Senate proposal would prompt cities and businesses to reduce its availability.
The idiots in Sacramento are off and running again. They've decided there's too much free parking in the land of fruits and nuts and they intend to do something about it. And it's all under the guise of preventing pollution and traffic jams. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and bet there's a few bucks in it for the State coffers if these assholes have their way. It's another surreptitious grab at our pocketbooks. Living here in San Pedro is a great example of what happens to a business district when there's no parking. People go do their shopping elsewhere. It's not rocket science. I would much rather drive ten miles to Torrance, park for free and shop at the Del Amo mall than risk a forty-dollar parking ticket here. Downtown San Pedro is a ghost town when it comes to shopping. And a huge reason is there is very little parking - free or otherwise. No wonder the state of Kalifornia is bleeding red ink. And they still don't get it. And the last noise one hears will be a "huge sucking sound" (thanks Ross Perot) as more businesses leave the Left Coast.

Just a heads up to anyone who tries to post any spam or phish on my comments section... I just deleted another comment from the same shit-stain who was spamming Closet Conservative. Don't expect to post your bullshit here dumbass! I can read a header so wise up before I turn the tables on you "socarzy."

BTW, thanks for the kind words Adrienne. And yes - great minds do think alike. The above comment was directed at some nitwit who's trying to spam/phish me with an everchanging porn link. He doesn't have the stones to post in English. It's always in Asian (Chinese?) characters. Watch out for this fool. He's been making the rounds on the Conservative blogs.
