Wednesday Reads: Chubby Sh-h-h….Posted: June 15, 2016
Hey….what does Hillary say?
(It looks like her…doesn’t it!)
And by all accounts, she will have a few outcast among those in the “Fan” base.
Can you believe that Sanders is still swinging his figurative big dick around?
Hillary Clinton won the D.C. primary primary last night, by around 60 points. It’s over over. For real over. No more pretending it’s not over. It’s done.
Clinton and Bernie Sanders (and key members of their teams) met for a chat last night, and it sounds like the least fun meeting ever! I have never read about a meeting that I was more glad to have not attended!
Relatedly: My top secret sources tell me that Sanders didn’t like THE ESTABLISHMENT that Clinton chose for their meeting.
Bernie Sanders is staying in the Democratic presidential race after meeting with rival Hillary Clinton, the party’s presumptive nominee, for nearly two hours at a Washington, D.C., hotel on Tuesday night.
Sanders and Clinton met at the Capital Hilton just blocks from the White House to plot a way forward after the Democratic primary season came to a close on Tuesday.
Neither took questions from press after the meeting. They were whisked away in black cars behind the protection of legions of security guards and campaign aides.
Sanders and his wife Jane went in and out of the front entrance of the hotel, which was lined with cheering onlookers who snapped pictures and yelled out his name. Campaign manager Jeff Weaver also attended the meeting.
Clinton went in and out of the back entrance to little fanfare. She was joined by campaign chairman John Podesta and campaign manager Robby Mook.
The Sanders campaign released a statement late Tuesday night saying the group had “a positive discussion about how best to bring more people into the political process and about the dangerous threat that Donald Trump poses to our nation.”
Sanders spokesman Michael Briggs said there are still a variety of issues where they are “seeking common ground,” including raising the minimum wage, campaign finance reform, universal healthcare and more affordable college tuition.
“Sanders and Clinton agreed to continue working to develop a progressive agenda that addresses the needs of working families and the middle class and adopting a progressive platform for the Democratic National Convention,” Briggs said in the statement.
See, Sanders and wife Jane went out the front door…Clinton was taken out the back way. What the fuck is that all about?
More on this Sanders shit:
Although I must give credit where it is due…and someone at Fox News was definitely swinging some big dick yesterday, and she sure surprised me!
“There’s no doubt Omar Mateen was able to kill so many people because he was firing an AR-15,” Carlson said. “A military-style assault weapon, a weapon easier to buy in the state of Florida than buying a handgun. Florida sets a three day waiting period for purchasing handguns, but the state mandates no waiting period for any gun that requires two hands to hold.”
She then pointed to a recent poll showing that 50% of Americans support an assault weapons ban.
“Do we need AR-15s to hunt and kill deer? Do we need them to protect our families?” she asked. “I’m in favor of people being able to carry. I think some of these mass shooting would have been less deadly if that were the case.”
“But I’m also with the majority today, taking a stand,” Carlson said, referring to the ban.
“Can’t we hold true the sanctity of the Second Amendment while still having common sense?”
As Wonkette makes a point, this isn’t the first time Gretchen has shown some decency…the last time was a moment five years ago on the curvy couch:
Do you remember when stupid old Barack Obama had absolutely nothing to do with killing Osama bin Laden? In the aftermath, one of the complaints (besides the fact that stupid old Barack Obama acted like he had anything at all to do with killing Osama bin Laden) was that bin Laden had been given Muslim ceremonial rites before becoming food for the fishies. This is because the mental giants at Fox were very angry, we guess, that Osama bin Laden was dead. Wait no, that can’t be right. It was because they had to be angry about SOMETHING. ANYWAY, there they were, all het up that Barack Obama hadn’t personally pissed on bin Laden’s corpse, which he definitely had nothing to do with killing, Calvin-styley.
“Shoulda peed on him,” said the rapey one.
“Or made a doody!” said the stupid one.
And that’s when Gretchen Carlson’s head spun around on her body three times, her eyes became insane Michele Bachmann eyes, and actual devils came out of her mouth as she actually YELLED that YOU GIVE THE PERSON THEIR PROPER RELIGIOUS BURIAL RITES.
“Whoa,” we said to ourselves but not out loud, “Gretchen Carlson actually takes religious liberty seriously, good for her!” Then we went back to masturbating with a copy of the Satanic Bible.
Now normally I would be bothered by the reference of calling a woman stupid in that blog title…but remember, in the light of some of the outrageous things this woman has said before…I think it fits.
And since this post is becoming theme-like in a sense, in that I am focusing on dickless wonders who need to compensate by beating their chest and violating all sorts of sensible behavior and humanity (more on that in a minute unfortunately). Here is yet another example of a woman with balls, giving it up but good:
Just watch it…
(Oh and by the way, if you want to…remember a while back I wrote about Florida and the mental health facilities…it was a series of articles published by The Tampa Times. Well, Sam Bee also did a piece on that the same night she did the Orlando bit. It is here if you want to see it. Florida’s Mental Health | Full Frontal with Samantha Bee | TBS – YouTube)
Anyway, here are the links I was talking about…the big swinging dick waving asshole news, in full dump fashion.
Everything changes when an AR-15 is present. Everything.
Monday there was another mass shooting in West Virginia, which turns out to have been a sovereign citizen who had a dispute with his neighbors over firewood. Instead of resolving the matter peacefully, he pulled out an AR-15 and shot them all to death.
No, really. Over firewood.
Washington’s Farewell Address: “Today I’m announcing my candidacy for a third term, as I am indispensable.”
Lincoln’s Second Inaugural: “With malice toward all, with charity for none, let us give these Confederate traitors what they deserve.”
FDR’s First Inaugural: “Be afraid. Be very, very afraid.”
John F. Kennedy’s First Inaugural: “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what your country can do for me.”
Barry Goldwater’s 1964 Republican Convention Speech: “Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice, and moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.”
Ronald Reagan’s Challenger Speech: “Tonight I want to talk to you about the losers who run NASA and blew up our space shuttle.”
Okay, he didn’t actually say those things…but here is something Trump did say:
Trump adopted a self-congratulatory posture about the deadliest mass shooting in American history; Trump said President Obama should resign because he won’t use the anti-Muslim phrasing Republicans like to hear; Trump suggested the president might be a terrorist sympathizer; Trump stripped the Washington Post of its press credentials; and Trumpdelivered a nauseating and brazenly dishonest speech demanding a ban on Muslims entering the country and targeting American Muslims’ loyalties.And really, that’s just a sampling – from the last five days.Yesterday, after President Obama made Trump’s rhetoric look ridiculous, the Republican candidate responded in the most Trump-like fashion possible, telling the Associated Press:“President Obama claims to know our enemy, and yet he continues to prioritize our enemy over our allies, and for that matter, the American people.“When I am President, it will always be America First.”The Atlantic’s James Fallows noted soon after, “Saying that the Commander in Chief has prioritized the enemy’s interests is an accusation of treason…. I am not aware of any previous case, whatsoever, of a national-ticket candidate publicly accusing a president or presidential nominee of a capital offense.”

And…for all those with little chubbies…Maddow shows how frighteningly easy it was for Orlando shooter to get gun inside the club
“In terms of understanding what happened inside that dark nightclub at 2:00 in the morning Sunday and how one guy was able to kill 49 other people and wound at least that many, it helps to know and I think it’s chilling to know that one of the things that this American gun company markets about this gun is that it is super easy to fire,” Maddow said in footage posted by Media Matters. “It’s easier to fire than an AR-15. And it fires faster and with less kick than your standard AR-15.”
Maddow showed footage of the commercial promoting the Sig Sauer MCX, which she said was confirmed as the weapon used in the rampage on Saturday night. The ad shows a lone gunman making his way through a dimly-lit room firing the rifle, and highlights the fact that it can be folded up.
“They fall all over themselves in their marketing material to say how much respect they as a company have for the military and for law enforcement personnel,” she said. “They say they make these guns as great as possible because they know police officers and soldiers’ lives are depending on these guns. And then they sell them to the general public. They sell them to anybody who walks in off the street. They’re legal for just about anyone to buy.”
She also pointed out that she has shot AR-15 rifles at shooting ranges in the past.
“One of the things that is unnerving about it is that when you hold one and when you fire it, it’s light enough and controllable enough and easy enough to handle and use, that literally a four-year old or a five-year old could reasonable handle one, and fire in the right direction,” she said. “It’s a very easy-to-use weapon that’s very light and very easy to handle and that doesn’t kick much when you pull the trigger. This Sig Sauer MCX is designed to be even easier to fire than that.”
And in another article…
Seven minutes. That’s how long it took me to buy an AR-15, the semi-automatic rifle used in the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history.
Seven minutes. From the moment I handed the salesperson my driver’s license to the moment I passed my background check.
It likely will take more time than that during the forthcoming round of vigils to respectfully read the names of the more than 100 people who were killed or injured.
I think that is a good group of links on the Gun Control issues.
In this next article… a sociological look at Mateen and Brock Turner: Two violent men, two symptoms of the same sickness
America woke up this weekend to the news of the deadliest civilian mass shooting in the nation’s history. The senseless tragedy will undoubtedly evoke anger, sadness and helplessness.
In the meantime, many will forget to think and talk about Stanford swimmer Brock Turner’s crime and his “summer vacation” jail sentence: three months for the vile sexual assault of an unconscious woman.
As a sociologist, I was struck not by the abrupt shift to a new moral crisis, but by the continuity. Sociologists look for the bigger picture, and in my mind, Mateen’s crime didn’t displace Turner’s. Yet the media simply replaced one outrage with another, moving our attention away from Stanford and toward Orlando, as if these two crimes were unrelated. They’re not.
