McCain: It's a Stain on America's Honor That We Haven't Passed Amnesty Yet

So foreign citizens snuck into America and live here in violation of our current immigration laws instead of becoming residents through legal channels like all previous immigrants have done and this is all somehow a stain on our honor?

What the fuck, McCain? It's one thing to disagree on an issue but now you're making it personal. And making me okay with the prospect of a future Democrat senator from Arizona who won't gratuitously insult me.

Cliven Bundy Loses the PR War

Well he never had a legal leg to stand on so his position as an sympathetic public emblem of the government bullying of ranchers was really all he had. But now after his racist rant he's PR poison.

Now of course just saying racist things doesn't invalidate your legal claims but then Bundy has already lost in court multiple times. And his claims of longtime family rights to the BLM land don't hold up to scrutiny. And now the left is warming up to him for his pro-amnesty views. Time to move on from this one folks. 

George Clooney Will Not Stand For the Mocking of Mikhail Gorbachev

Or the dissing of his 'personal friend' Barrack Obama.

But he told the paper that Clooney first got upset at the dinner when one of the CAA execs told a joke about former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev.

Clooney threw "a hissy fit" about that, Wynn told the paper, then started talking about the ACA, or Obamacare. When Wynn, a frequent critic of Obamacare, spoke up, Clooney got mad about that, too, Wynn said.
"He called the president an (expletive deleted) ... that is a fact ..." Clooney said in a statement issued by his publicist. "I said the president was my longtime friend and then he said 'your friend is an (expletive deleted).' ... At that point I told Steve that HE was an (expletive deleted) and I wasn't going to sit at his table while he was being such a jackass."

Political Correctness Takes Over the Hugo Awards

Somehow a conservative writer's work ("Warbound, Book III of the Grimnoir Chronicles" by Larry Correia) made it onto the ballot and now all hell has broken loose. And the PC Police want you to know that he's a terrible, bad, bad person so you shouldn't vote for his book.

But everybody knows bad people can't create art, says the side that keeps showering Roman Polanski with awards.

In closing, I would really like everybody who is a voting member of WorldCon to actually read the works in each category and vote based upon which ones they think are best. I fully expect Wheel of Time to win my category of best novel. It is a fourteen book epic written by two authors over twenty six years. Duh.

Personally, my goal has been reached. I got the thought police to show the world their pretty pink panties. :)

Alicia Silverstone is Clueless About Science, Technology, Logical Reasoning, Cause and Effect, and Pretty Much Everything Else That Enabled Her to Go Through the Starbucks Drive-Through This Morning in Addition To Building Modern Western Society

In The Kind Mama: A Simple Guide to Supercharged Fertility, a Radiant Pregnancy, a Sweeter Birth, and a Healthier, More Beautiful Beginning, Silverstone chronicles what might reasonably be called her unconventional parenting advice: Bananas are "a naughty food for a baby," the diaper industry is "pseudoscience," and vaccines are essentially shots of "aluminum and formaldehyde."

And she's not afraid to fight the feminine hygiene industrial complex as well:

5. Stop using tampons.

Is there a class-action suit against OB on the horizon? According to Silverstone, tampons might be making you infertile: "[Y]our chichi is the most absorbent part of your body. Unfortunately, feminine-care manufacturers aren't required to tell you what's in their products, which means that no one's talking about the potential pesticide residues from non-organic cotton and the 'fragrances' containing hormone-upsetting, fertility-knocking phthalates that are snuggling up to your hoo-ha."
