Anyone got a way to make 2012 come sooner?

Here is the newest "if there were a button I would be pounding on it with my head" story. It's not even the story. Just the first sentence:

"In rapid-fire action Friday, the Republican-controlled House voted to strip federal money from President Barack Obama's health care overhaul and from Planned Parenthood and to bar the EPA from issuing global warming regulations."

Yup. That's it. Goodbye. Kill us please.

Please end the world soon

I can't take this shit. People accept this as reality. People allow this man to talk. He disseminates whatever he feels like saying to millions on a daily basis. And it's legitimate. It's all a bunch of insane bullshit, but it's legitimate because it's on a "respectable" television station. Therefore people believe it and worship him because he tells them that the problem is everyone else and doing/thinking whatever the fuck you feel like, hating everyone else and never having to change is fundamentally correct. It's like providing masturbation with poisoned lube.

Fuck this world/country/society/species/etc.

File under "things that should be on the internet but are not"

The following statements do not come up when searched on Google, so I will change that - "Aerosmith is a Led Zeppelin rip off" and "Aerosmith is the shitty American version of Led Zeppelin".

Cop shot?

A regular contributor to the letters section of a local newspaper doesn't think it matters. Fucking incredible. This dude, while I feel that he has written some pretty less than stellar pieces before, is pretty gutsy with this one. I can't recall anything specific, but I have a general memory of the guy being pretty conservative. People like that usually worship pigs, but not Raymond:

Proposed death penalty bill creates different classes of victims

In the eyes of state Sen. Robert Singer, (R-Monmouth, Ocean, Burlington, Mercer) your life is not as important as that of a cop. That is the bottom line of a bill that Singer is proposing (supported by Sen. Jennifer Beck) in a typical politician’s knee-jerk reaction to the murder of a (Lakewood) cop.

The bill could result in the death penalty for murderers of on-duty cops, and for good measure, childkillers and terrorists whose actions cause deaths. Singer does not seem to be aware of or care about the equal protection clause of the Constitution. His bill would use such sad events to justify creating different classes of society.

On-duty cops, like everyone else from the president to celebrities, to athletes, to the pope, are still just people doing jobs. We justify putting cops on pedestals by claiming they are putting their lives on the line every day. Commuters using high-speed highways are also putting their lives on the line every day getting to and from their jobs to support their families.

Same for those working in dangerous jobs, like firemen, mine workers, construction workers. Will murderers of those while working in those jobs also face the death penalty? If not, why?

And why include kids? Before reaching adulthood, the vastmajority have not made any real major contribution to society. And the reality is that the majority of us never make major contributions throughout our entire lives.

Yet if a person with a track record of having made real contributions — created jobs, grown our food, built our homes, helped the poor (e.g., someone like Mother Teresa selflessly helping Camden’s poor), etc. — is murdered, that death would be treated more lightly by a “mere” lifetime of taxpayerpaid meals, lodging and medical care.

There is something hypocritical about the legal process by which a defendant, if found guilty, could be executed. It is nothing short of premeditated, first-degree murder, with the “players” (prosecutor, judge, jury, and the people who do the actual murder) all being willing coconspirators and accomplices. So some murders are bad, others are actually sanctioned.

I enjoy how he notes that "the reality is that the majority of us never make major contributions [to society] throughout our entire lives."

Quote of all time

Lissie J, referring to those who have unrewarding, draining jobs yet carry on as though some higher up will notice their cheer and give them a raise/promotion on the spot:

"It's like getting raped and holding out for an orgasm."

Fox shoots man

Not the TV empire, but the animal. This shit is real, and brilliant.

MOSCOW (Reuters) – A wounded fox shot its would be killer in Belarus by pulling the trigger on the hunter's gun as the pair scuffled after the man tried to finish the animal off with the butt of the rifle, media said Thursday.

The unnamed hunter, who had approached the fox after wounding it from a distance, was in hospital with a leg wound, while the fox made its escape, media said, citing prosecutors from the Grodno region.

"The animal fiercely resisted and in the struggle accidentally pulled the trigger with its paw," one prosecutor was quoted as saying.

Fox-hunting is popular in the picturesque farming region of northwestern Belarus which borders Poland.

Wow. Just wow.
