Happy Thanksgiving from Martha, Snoop and us.

Since it’s Thanksgiving we thought we’d share this video, just in case you don’t know how to cook, or you want a surreal moment today, as if spending the whole day with your family isn’t surreal enough.

Douchebag of the Week – Jane Black, Patterson Clark and The Bon Appetit Management Company Foundation

Douchebag of the Week!

This is a shortened week this week thanks to the holiday and our travel schedules, but that doesn’t mean there hasn’t been a douchebag worthy of note this week.  The winners this week are two staff writers for the Washington Post and the non-profit Bon Appetit Management Company Foundation. You may be asking yourself what two staff writers and a non-profit could have done to deserve this honor while so many douchebags are walking free around the world.  Well, in the holiday spirit, they have gone and told you how you should celebrate Thanksgiving.

Not that you shouldn’t celebrate Thanksgiving, though that would be much better for the planet, they want to tell you HOW to celebrate it. 

Seems global warming (never mind the fact that the earth has been cooling since 1998 while CO2 output has increased) has impacted the getting together with family and friends to give thanks industry.  How?  Who cares, it has!  Facts be damned! 

Simply read the intro to the chart (click on the thumbnail for a larger view):

A holiday all about seasonal food presents a real opportunity to eat sustainably. But making hippie-crap1the right choices is more complicated than you think. Should you buy local or organic? Or is what you eat — and how much — more important?

Researchers are racing to find an answer.

Is it really that complicated?  No.  And who are these researchers racing to find an answer?  We’re willing to bet dollars to donuts that the Bon Appetit Management Company Foundation gets some federal funds, if not now, in the near future.  What a scam, what a waste of time and money, and who the hell cares?

It’s Thanksgiving, for crying out loud.  Will these hippies and government leeches ever stop?  No, they won’t.  They’re all about the power and having control over you.  For this they are truly douchebags.  And this week they are the winners of Douchebag of the Week.

Eat well, drink much, have fun and Happy Thanksgiving.

PC Christmas in Florida – Nice ‘giving garden.’

pc-christmas2

The PC police are at it again, this time in Florida.  Officials at Gulf Coast University in Florida have banned all Christmas decorations in public places and have replaced the tree under which students used to place gifts for needy families with a “giving garden” so as to not offend anyone…except the vast majority of Americans. 

“Public institutions, including FGCU, often struggle with how best to observe the season in ways that honor and respect all traditions,” President Wilson Bradshaw wrote in a memo to faculty and staff Thursday. “This is a challenging issue each year at FGCU, and 2008 is no exception. While it may appear at times that a vocal majority of opinion is the only view that is held, this is not always the case.”

Can you believe this crap?  Hey President Bradshaw, guess what December 25th is…Here’s a hint, it’s not the build up to Boxing Day.  It’s freaking Christmas!  Pretending it isn’t doesn’t make it not!  While not everyone celebrates it, everyone is aware of it.  They don’t have to like it, but they damn well have to accept it because it is.

This guy needs to be slapped across the face with a dead fish. 

Why is it that the PC crowd (and they are a very small minority) aways insists that everyone bow to their wishes?  And why is it that so many spineless douchebag academics always line up to do just that?  Forcing someone to celebrate Christmas is just as bad as not allowing someone to.  Where in the Constitution does it say you have a right not to be offended?  If it’s there we’d like to see it because there is plenty that the government does that offends us, starting with this PC crap.

We hope the students of Florida Gulf Coast University simply ignore this jackass and live their lives like they are sentient human beings able to make their own decisions and live with the fact that others are free not to share their views.  We also hope President Bradshaw is publicly rebuked to the point that he resigns in shame.  Get over yourself everyone.

Democrat’s “stimulus” plan – take money from right pocket and put it in left.

sstimulus

The Democrats are at it again, looking to interfere with the economy to “save us” from the inevitable and necessary hardship of the current economic mess.  After having spent roughly a trillion dollars on this so far through bailouts and “stimulus” packages, we’re now told that that’s not enough, more must be done.

President-elect Obama and other Democrats are considering up to another $700 billion in a “stimulus” package to get the economy rolling again.  There’s only one problem with that proposal – it simply won’t work.

While talking about massive infrastructure programs, building roads and bridges, etc., may sound like a good idea, it’s not.  One thing you have to realize is that the government can not create wealth, it can only seize it.  So for the feds to spend any additional money on anything they must first take it from someplace else.  The place where they take it from is generally where new jobs and economic growth originate – the entrepreneurial segment of society.  This leaves them with less to invest in their companies and less with which to be able to hire new employees.  This is presumably the opposite of what one looking to “stimulate” the economy would want.

The government can’t create growth by taking money from their right pocket and putting in their left.  In fact, the government can’t create growth at all.  At best the government can get out of the way of those who actively seek to create something from nothing, or expand what they’ve already created and allow them to do what humans have been doing since the dawn of time.  Since there is no way the Democrats will allow that to happen, we will be in a world of hurt until common sense returns to Washington.

Peter Schiff called the financial crisis…and was slammed for doing so.

Peter Schiff was the boy that cried right.  Wow, this is eerie when you realize the dates of these interviews.

Potential winner of dumbass of the year.

corner_dumb_ass

This complete dumbass over in China was bitten while trying to hug an animal.  This is what the 20 year old named Liu said to the media:

Yang Yang was so cute and I just wanted to cuddle him. I didn’t expect he would attack.”

The animal he climbed the fence to hug was a bear.  Look for Liu to make an appearance on a future Darwin Awards list…

The New York Times is reporting that Hillary has accepted the job as Secretary of State in the Obama Administration. Everything old is…well, still old.

Obama is quickly becoming Clinton 2: Electric Boogaloo.
