Evil Clowns and Giant Pigs! (It’s not all politics)

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-ILL) has penned an op-ed for the Sun-times that says: “It’s long past time for Congress to create a federal law that defines and protects journalists“. Ummm, “protect”? I don’t think that means what you think it does, ‘Dick’. Maybe we need to define ‘politician’ to protect the country from the perennial crop of elected ass-hats?

How to lose friend and alienate allies: the EU is pretty steamed about U.S. secret surveillance programs that reportedly installed covert listening devices in European Union offices. Remember, Snowden is only the messenger; blame the pols and spooks what did the bugging!

For the first time, encryption is thwarting government surveillance efforts through court-approved wiretaps, U.S. officials said today.

“There’s nothing funny about a clown in the moonlight” –Lon Chaney on the creepiness of clowns. More in “Send In the Evil Clowns: The Monstrous Madness of Mockery“.

Fox News Spends 6 Minutes Describing Why Mr. Rogers Was An ‘Evil, Evil Man’. Fox is for haters, no news there.

Guntards everywhere rejoiced as an arms maker airlifted 20,000 extended magazines to a Colorado gun show ahead of a state-wide ban enacted in response to the Aurora theater massacre. Rah-rah-rah! Mayhem = money for Evil Corporations.

Another Bank of America whistle-blower details latest scheme to abuse homeowners, evade settlement rules and pocket cash. Good thing they are ‘too big to jail’, huh?

Why Not Drug Test U.S. Farmers Who Receive Federal Aid? Welfare is welfare, right? But America’s farm districts are among the most reliably Republican in the country. Of the 10 counties receiving the most Federal farm aid, 9 voted Republican in the last election. Is that why?

Gov. Rick Perry tries to slut-shame the pro-choice senator who filibustered abortion legislation by saying she failed to ‘learn from her mistakes‘ . (One could say as much for the Lone Star State.  Secede already, guys!). Texas pro-choice advocates vow to continue fighting Perry’s brand of nonsense.

Chick-fil-A’s president tweeted, “Sad day for our nation; founding fathers would be ashamed of our gen. to abandon wisdom of the ages re: cornerstone of strong societies.” No, he’s not talking about the rule of law, he is hating on teh Gayz! In the usual fearless “Christian soldier” manner, the tweet was quickly deleted. May they all choke on their curly SATAN fries!

The GOP knows what women want! Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC): Women want to be forced to have ultrasounds.

The GOP aren’t the only filthy giant pigs out there!

Years ago I saw the most incredible horror film called “Razorback” (1984). It featured a gigantic wild pig the size of a compact pick-up terrorizing the Australian outback. It was a particularly gory flick directed by Russell Mulcahy, who would later make the first two films of the Highlander trilogy. It had some amazing characters, including a pair of hunters that harvested kangaroos for a dog food company.

The phrase “Wakey, wakey! Hands off snakey!” haunts me to this very day.

Tonight I saw a French version of the giant mutant pig horror flick, “Prey“. It’s well worth a viewing, too, even if the pigs aren’t quite as large as the “‘Jaws’ on trotters’ from “Razorback”.

Anyone know of more features in this genre?
