Toldjaso. Russia illegally stole the Crimean peninsula from Ukraine in order to increase Moscow’s wealth and influence. Lo and behold, the Russian state-controlled energy agency has taken control of gas and oil production in Crimea, thus shutting out other potential companies and countries.

“Gunpoint business deals”, we might call such operations: Russia is not doing anything irrational here. They are using military force to take control of the European energy market. Power, literally flowing from the barrel of a gun.

Yes, Putin’s Peeps are planning to commit massive human rights abuses in the area they have taken over. And yes, they are planning to swallow up more of the former Soviet Union, creating a greater Russia in the process. But there is nothing crazy about what they’re doing.

Immoral, illegal, unethical, inhuman, and despicable, yes. Loony, no. Putin and his renascent empire are acting with cold, pure, infernally logical intent as they seize land and power: power that will continue its accretion until the rest of the world punches Vladimir in the metaphorical nose and stops him.

original is “Republican” “Pundit” Ann Coulter’s reaction to the acquittal of George Zimmerman (and thus the legalized murder of an unarmed black kid). Here’s the link if you can’t believe this s*** is real. Yes, she is giving thanks to the Lord that Georgie got away with murder. Killing a young man of color is now legal, so she is singing hallelujah. That is some serious hatred of black people, friends.

These people are seriously bigoted, misogynistic jerkoffs, and they are getting more and more deranged every day. Another example:
Ted “I pooped my pants to dodge the draft” Nugent lays out the racist screed.

If that isn’t enough to make the point, here’s another example: an elderly black musical legend got assaulted by a racist white woman for dedicating a gospel song to Trayvon Martin.

Gentle Reader, do we really need any more examples? “Republicans”, Teabaggers, Birchers and other Wingnuts hate blacks. They aren’t even over the Emancipation Proclamation yet, much less the Civil Rights Act. And they are never going to accept black folks (or anyone else but white people) as humans, much less equal.

That being the case, all of us, of all hues, really need to un-elect their a**es at every opportunity. Because as long as racist f***tards hold high positions in government, media and commerce, they will continue to send the message of inequality. Only when those who hate their fellow man are marginalized can the rest of America live in equality and harmony.

P.S. your humble correspondent is heading in for more heart scoping fun at oh-dark-thirty, so tomorrow’s post is early. See you when the sedation wears off, and the docs hand over a mobile blogging device.

Once again, this country makes you want to puke. a 17-year old serial rapist and convicted child molester is walking free pending his sentencing for three counts of sexually assaulting little girls, and the city in which he committed these heinous crimes is abusing the victims.

One victim, who was 13 at the time of the crime, became pregnant as a result of the rape. She has been vilified and threatened, her home has been vandalized, and she is about to give birth to a baby her stinking rapist forcibly implanted into her. One more time, people: not only does this child have psychological trauma to deal with, but she also has a living reminder of the vicious crime perpetrated on her staring up at her 24/7.
The victim is being made to bear the consequences of a crime committed against her while the convicted criminal who raped her walks free, perhaps raping other little girls while you read this. He will be sentenced within the week, perhaps to probation so that he can keep on sexually abusing children.

And what does the town of Elwood Indiana do about this horrific situation? Why, they support the stinking pervert sex offender and abuse his child victims, that’s what they do:

“A former self-proclaimed “social bug” — she was a cheerleader and athlete — the young victim has become reclusive since learning she was pregnant.

“I can’t walk out the door without someone calling me a whore or slut,” the girl said. “I used to have a lot of friends, or people I thought were my friends, but as soon as this happened I just isolated myself.”

The repeated vandalism incidents at the family’s home — including the words “whore” and “slut” scrawled on the garage doors — were reported to police. But Green said no charges were filed because there were no witnesses to the acts.

Her daughter also has been the target of mean-spirited rumors and speculation that her pregnancy is the result of promiscuous behavior.”

This blogger is fed up with all these stinking little s***hole towns: Steubenville, Torrington, Elwood, and the rest of them. They are a load of sanctimonious, hypocritical, slut-shaming, victim-blaming rapist-loving assholes, and this writer wishes he had the time and resources to travel the country looking for these serial-rapist worshipping jackasses so as to be able to barf on each and every one of them.

But that is better than these rape cheerleaders deserve anyway. What the citizens of Elwood et.al. deserve is to be on the receiving end of the hateful s*** they spew at the innocent children who have been raped twice: first by the sex offender who raped their bodies, and then by the townsfolk who gleefully rape their minds and souls afterwards. Let them taste their own s*** and see how they like it.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

First we had Steubenville and the rape case there, and people minimized the crime, saying the victim was drunk, the assault wasn’t all that violent, and other stupid s*** like that. Hey, people: sexual assault is sexual assault. Maybe someone needs to forcibly insert things into your body before you get the point?

Then we had Torrington, where 13-year-old girls were molested , and people minimized the crimes again, because the molestation was “consensual”. Hey, people: sexual assault is sexual assault. Maybe if someone molested your kids, you’d get the point?

Now another example of sexual assault: a man exposing himself while driving 90 miles an hour. Repeatedly. And people will snicker and minimize his crimes, because the man looked ridiculous, and he didn’t actually touch the women involved. Hey, people: sexual assault is sexual assault. Maybe if this preeve had done this to your mother (or killed a lot of people in a car crash while waving his junk at her), you’d get the point?

In the article, Detective Terry Christian reminds us that no sex crime is OK. And that people need to stop minimizing and start reporting. If someone had reported this mutt earlier, lots of women would not have been victimized over the years.

Sexual assault is sexual assault. It is always a crime. No one should be sexually assaulted. That, friends, is the point.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Recently the New York Times did a piece on the Torrington CT rape cases, and it exposed some serious underlying reasons for our nation’s problem with rape culture. Disturbing reasons.

There were the usual revolting attitudes towards sexual assault, of course: victim-blaming, slut-shaming, you know the steaming loads of donkey bollocks that rape apologists throw around. And there was something said by one Kenneth Traub, chairman of the Board of education. Something that shows just how out of touch adults have become.

He said, quoting here; “I put no weight in any comments made online. I don’t believe in Facebook. I don’t believe in Twitter”. Meaning by this that anything said over social media is unimportant.

You got that? Since he doesn’t use these tools, they have no value. This is, of course, antediluvian bulls***: such postings are court-admissible evidence, for crying out loud. Indeed, two Steubenville rapists are currently doing time after being convicted based partly on social media postings.

Because of this stupid a** hole’s willful ignorance, not a single student has been brought up before a special board that was set up by less-clueless adults. The board is to deal with cyber-bullying. And since Mr. Traub does not believe in cyber-anything, he will not use the tools available to solve the problem. And so the problem continues to get worse.

These are the people who are supposed to educate our children. People who are deliberately choosing not to live in the same world their students inhabit. And they wonder why they aren’t getting their message across? Christ on a trampoline, really?

Memo to Mr. Traub, and all who think like he does: you are failing us, you are failing our children, and you bear part of the blame for the sexual assaults perpetrated upon our daughters. You carry this guilt because you choose not to take the actions required to address the problems of the real world in which our girls get raped.

And because you choose not to address the problem, you are, effectively, accessories to rape. Your mothers would be so proud.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Mr. Blunt and Cranky has this crazy theory, and it goes like this: the Founders were smart people who argued, haggled, debated, and In the end wrote a Constitution that said exactly what they meant. Nothing more, and nothing less. And if we don’t like something, we can bust our arses and amend it. (Yeah, a crazy notion,eh?)

But when people read the Constitution, they cherry-pick the bits and bobs they like and pretend the rest is not there, or that “the Founders were just kidding with that part”. That is not the act of a law-abiding citizen, folks. No matter if one is a Supreme Court justice or some regular schmuck, we have to respect the entire law. Including the Second Amendment.

People love the second part of the sentence, yes they do. But the first part, about the “well regulated militia”? Even Fat Tony and his posse at the S.C. tend to gloss over that bit.

The only reason to have battle-specific weapons is to fight a battle. And the only smart way to fight a battle is in an organized military group. For that matter, it is the only legal way to do it. So if you’re not in such an organization and you own and use military-style armaments, you are not in compliance with the law of the land.

Don’t like it? Pursue an amendment. But until you get one, just obey the friggin’ law.

Mr. B & C
