timothy mcveigh. timothy mcveigh the guy that blew up the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City and killed or wounded more than 800 innocent people and caused more than $652 million worth of damage timothy mcveigh? timothy mcveigh who was found guilty of this and put to death for it in 2001? timothy mcveigh whose crime was, until September 11, 2001, the most significant act of terrorism on American soil timothy mcveigh? timothy mcveigh who did all that to revolt against what he considered to be a tyrannical federal government? timothy mcveigh who railed against taxes and called them “a joke”? timothy mcveigh who said at Waco in 1993 that “I believe we are slowly turning into a socialist government. The government is continually growing bigger and more powerful and the people need to prepare to defend themselves against government control”? that timothy mcveigh? you consider him a patriot? what fucking universe are you living in where killing innocents is an honorable thing? if that’s how you feel, then you are no better than the religious radicals you purport to consider evil, and you are a hypocrite.

so, the conservatives and “moderates” on the SCOTUS can lick a sweaty, hairy scrotum. they’ve just fucked the election process for the country, and, indirectly, all of us. in rare bipartisan fashion, both republican and democratic leaders are denouncing the decision. i need to move to Norway. i’m no constitutional scholar, but i fail to understand how a corporation’s First Amendment rights were being impinged upon by making them separate corporate profits from political monies. but, then again, i don’t consider a corporation to be a person, either. the majority opinion is a bunch of horseshit that goes against several precedents (aren’t conservatives the ones who are always railing against judicial activism??), and the effects of their decision will play out in the midterm elections this fall.
i’m too furious about the whole things to talk straight about this mess, but i’ve read and seen a couple things that explain why this decision is wrong-headed and bad for the country and its political process. this is the best one, but my new second-favorite senator (to Russ Feingold (D-WI)) Alan Grayson (D-FL) started working to counteract this decision before the Supreme Court had made its official ruling on the case. but an AP article published last week talks about a letter from 40 CEOs that are sick of being harrassed for campaign donations by Congressmen/women for money–and this was BEFORE this last SCOTUS decision on corporate political donations. ugh, i’m absolutely irate. and don’t even get me started on health insurance reform.
also: i’m really disappointed in Obama.
UPDATE: the folks over at Jezebel are just as worried about this SCOTUS decision as anyone, especially considering the implications it has on how the court might rule in a Roe related case. Justice Kennedy, what say you?

so, i understand that misogyny is a part of American culture, as much as i detest it (and sometimes, admittedly, find funny.) but i didn’t understand that it was a part of our fucking government. jesus christ, are these guys for real??

Several weeks ago on Fuckbook, I posted the following quote as my Fuckbook status:
“I call myself a feminist. Isn’t that what you call someone who fights for women’s rights?” ~Dalai Lama
I got some little “Like This” thumbs-up signs and the following comments:

every time this waste of organic matter opens his mouth my blood pressure rises to the point that you can see the veins in my forehead. my fists clench, my jaw tightens, my pupils dilate, basically my entire sympathetic nervous system goes bat shit. i cannot STAND this guy. how he’s held office in Ohio for more than a term is waaaayyy beyond me. seeing him tromp around behind dubya and parrot everything the bush administration had to say was just gross. and now he’s basically taking the opposite position of Obama on every single issue, just to be contrary and show how “Christian” and “Conservative” he is. he doesn’t work for the American people, and certainly not for Ohioans.
he’s against doing anything about America’s energy policy (besides offshore drilling and more subsidies for oil companies), about tax loopholes and subsidies for huge banks in the financial system, about lobbyists (shocking!), about improving America’s foreign relations and foreign policy, and now we can tack on HATE CRIMES legislation to that list.
that’s right, boehner is opposing the inclusion of the victims of violent crimes committed because of sexual orientation, gender, gender identity and disability (protections are currently extended to victims of crimes based on race, color, religion and national origin.) when his office was questioned about WHY on earth you wouldn’t want to protect people who are targeted based on sexual or gender identity, his spokesman responded that Boehner “supports existing federal protections (based on race, religion, gender, etc) based on immutable characteristics…He does not support adding sexual orientation to the list of protected classes.”
that’s right! WHY would you base any of your political stances on SCIENCE??
so, recap: boehner believes that RELIGION is not a personal choice of a person, but that SEXUAL ORIENTATION is. this guy is so backwards i’m surprised that he’s not aging like Benjamin fucking Button. holy christ.
