Morning Seditionists

Captain Trips

Captain TripsThe Super Flu has worked its way to my county now, with a suspected case causing a nearby high school to close. I guess it was inevitable, what with us being only 40 miles from Mexico. Lot of pigs up that way, too, I think. The lo-cal news is now loaded with stories of school districts doing “MRSA Level” cleaning of schools and buses (MRSA being the most recent big scare, of course), interspersed with flashes of the “Swine Flu Hotline” numbers. We’re at Level 5, bitches! Time to get rolling with that duct tape and plastic wrap.

OK, so Arlen Specter. This is a bit like Chamberlain giving Poland to Hitler and declaring victory. Dead Man Walking Specter was about to lost to a wingnut in the Republican primary, paving the way for a Democrat to take the seat in the general election. So the Democrats “win” by promising Specter the support of the leadership (and no primary), in exchange for, um, well, in exchange for nothing.

Please pardon any typos I may have here, but it’s tough to type, what with being triple-gloved and wearing a full-body haz-mat suit. But these precautions are necessary, since there are now some 50 cases of mild flu in the US, including one suspected case just a county or so away from me. And they’re dropping like flies in Mexico City, with 149 152 deaths now blamed on the evil swine flu. Of course, what with the population of the Greater Mexico City Metro Area being about 22 million people and the death rate in Mexico being 4.78 per thousand, about 290 people die every daythere. And about 100 people a day die in the US in car accidents. Still, the flu is nothing to sneeze at. ๐Ÿ™„

Did You See Which Way The Swine Flew?

It was back in 1976, as I recall, when I and the other local Eloi heard the sirens, dropped what we were doing, and dutifully marched off to Manley Field House to be vaccinated (with an air gun, which I thought was pretty cool at the time; do they still use those things?) against the dreaded Swine Flu. :omg: Of course, the Swine Flu scare turned out to be a load of crap. One poor soldier at the erotically named Fort Dix in NJ – David Lewis – did die after contracting the flu (as for what really killed him, I’ll leave that to the Alex Jones types out there), but another 500 or so soldiers were tested and diagnosed with the flu, though they weren’t even symptomatic. Lewis was the only know casualty. So, excuse me if I’m not feeling properly terrified today.

Today on Press the Meat, it’s two – count ’em two – exclusives! Obama Press Secretary Robert Gibbs talks torture, and Jordan’s King Abdulla talks about his meeting with fellow Muslim Barack Obama. Then there’ll be a discussion on the bogus “100 Day” yardstick with Jon Meacham of Newsweek and presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin.

Here in the ‘Cuse, today is supposed to be the kind of day that some people (mostly women, I think, based on the local news twit’s reaction to the local weather dork’s forecast this morning) seem to think is “really great,” but which I think sucks. That is, it’s supposed to be hot รขโ‚ฌโ€ in the upper 80’s, which is too damn hot for me (and the dogs). And my wife, so maybe it’s not a “girl” thing after all. Come to think of it, I seem to recall a time when I was young and actually liked the heat (that was back when heat meant the beach and bikinis, as opposed to sweat and bugs). So maybe it’s just a miserable old bastard thing (speaking only for myself, of course).

I’m thinking of maybe robbing a bank or something (maybe torturing the branch manager to get him to open the safe), but am getting mixed messages from the Obama administration. On the one hand, I figured Obama and Senate Majority “Leader” Harry Reid would consider it too much of a “distraction” to investigate (let alone prosecute and incarcerate) me. I mean, let’s face it. It would just look like they’d be seeking retribution for my illegal activities. Sounds cool.

Plan B From Outer Space

Yet another blow for the champions of sacred life yesterday, as the FDA graciously decided to comply with a court order to make the “morning after pill” (aka, “Plan B” – plan “A” of course being the chastity pledge) available over-the-counter to 17-yr olds (once the drug companies officially request it, which shouldn’t take long; after all, it increases potential market considerably). Unlike the Berverly Hills RU-486 “abortion” pill, Plan B prevents fertilization and, to be effective, needs to be taken within 72-hours of doing the horizontal bop.

Seeing as we’ve been torturing the Earth for so long, I think it’s appropriate today to celebrate the torture of humans. Not that the Earth is torturing us, of course (though Mother Nature does have a bit of a cruel streak at times). Mostly, we do it to each other. But at least we do it for good reason.

Angels and Demons

Looks like Billy Donohue of the Catholic League (I thought that was something to do with the CYO, but I guess not) has his panties in a knot (or maybe his cilice is just too tight) over the upcoming Ron Howard sequel to the Da Vinci Code, “Angels and Demons.” Surprise, surprise. Even less surprising is the fact that Brother Bill hasn’t even seen the movie, and is spreading lies about it (for a $5 donation, you can get a whole booklet of bullshit, which I guess is cheaper than buying a bible – not that I would ever equate the Bible with Bill Donohue’s bullshit).
