This is to all the other good men out there.

That which we love is under attack.  Not the NFL or NHL, not NASCAR, not beer, not hot wings, not motorcycles or dogs. Rock and Roll? Doing fine. So what’s taking fire? Who needs our strength and honor?

Our sluts and prostitutes.  Or – According to Rush Limbaugh all women who use contraception. Rather, our mothers, wives, girlfriends, sisters, and daughters to rational people. If we stand silent while the rabid religious right continues their onslaught of hate and lies and domination we cannot call ourselves “men”.  We are bigger, we are stronger, but we are not “better”.

Remember how we protect the “weaker sex”?  First on the lifeboats, first out of a burning house, we hold the door for them and defer to their compassion and kindness.  How many of us express outrage when we hear stories of a woman beaten by her husband, of  a teen girl gang raped, we say to ourselves, “If  I had been there, I would have stopped that.” or ” I would kick that guy’s ass.”

I,  for one, won’t take it anymore. This man is  standing up and saying “Enough. This ends with me.”  Taking a quote from “They Live” (one of the best ever terrible sci-fi movies, IMHO)  “I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass… and I’m all out of bubblegum. “

You want to go after our sluts and prostitutes?  The women I love? You’re going to have to go through me first.

Think about it.

Dear Rush Limbaugh,

Thank you. You have done more damage to your reputation with your hateful words (and by extension damage to Fox News as well), than any clever Facebook post or WordPress blog could possibly do. Keep it up, and let me know when they can your ass so I can throw a party.

And further thanks for the “apology”.  I just found out that I am actually agreeing with Ron Paul.  A more backhanded and self-serving mea culpa has not been seen for years. Your true colors are showing, and they aren’t red, white and blue.

Sandra Fluke, I’ve got your back.

That’s all for now

PS  I applaud the advertisers who are withdrawing sponsorship. Hit him with money.  When he is no longer profitable, he’ll see how much his owners at Fox News love him.

PPS – Clear Channel? I hate you. You trashed my favorite radio station. But I’ll forgive you for that  if you cancel his show.  Sign a petition to have Clear Channel cancel his show


Indiana state Rep. Bob Morris has called the Girl Scouts a “radicalized” group.  That they “sexualize” (I’m not sure that’s a word) young girls and are somehow pursuing a homosexual agenda.  Where’s the “terrorist cell” claim?  They sell those cookies for cash, train in secret meetings and encourage active recruitment. As a Cub Scout, I recall having to memorize a pledge of some sort, I bet they have one too.  Think of what might be hidden in the millions of boxes of cookies on counter tops all over America right now.  But nothing, on that angle, nope, instead, Girl Scouts are evil because they promote women’s health and they don’t hate homosexuals.  Gods hep us, they will destroy America!

Terrorists! RUN!!! They're arming the COOKIES!!!

First claim is absurd, based solely on Planned Parenthood’s not-secret involvement with the group.  This somehow means that Girl Scouts will all get abortions or something. Yeah, right.  That fallacy would be laughed out of any rational discussion.  But we’re not seeing a “rational discussion” here.

The second claim…where do I start. SO WHAT?  If the Girl Scouts teach acceptance and kindness instead of fear and hate, so be it.  I am getting sick and god damned tired of politicians using spurious moral arguments to take shots at women and women’s reproductive rights. So a GS group in Colorado let in a boy who considers himself a girl. What, do you think this will turn your little girls into raging lesbians?  I doubt it.  No, we know what it is.  You hate gays, and the fact the Girl Scouts DON’T feel like you do pisses you off.  So you take cheap shots, over nothing, just so people will notice you.

Going after the Girls Scouts? Really?  Bob Morris, you couldn’t think of a better use of your time than to wail about a group whose goal states:   “Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.”

Wait a minute.  I get it.

Bob’s not worried that his daughters will get abortions or become little versions of Ellen DeGeneres, he is worried that they might grow and learn and think for themselves.  And I bet that frightens him.  Because when they grow up and look at their Dad, they might not like what they see.

So, anyhow, Girl Scouts. They sell cookies.  And make S’mores. I think they sing Kum Ba Ya (radicals!).

Sounds OK to me.
