Assholes on Parade

  
 An assortment of assholes, including a county commissioner and a city councilman, are facing Federal charges for riding their ATVs through an ancient Indian historical site in Utah, causing irreparable damage. The assholes were “protesting” the evil tyrannical Federal government’s policy of denying them their freedom to ride through sacred ground on ATVs like a bunch of assholes.

In A Just World…

  
…Jefferson Davis would’ve ended his days hanging from a noose as just punishment for his treason. Certainly, there would be no statues or monuments or counties to honor a man who nearly destroyed the United States. Removing Davis’ statue from the UT campus is a very tiny step toward embracing American history as it actually existed, not some romantic fairy tale.

What the Entire Hell?

William C. Bradford, an assistant professor at West Point, calls critics of the War on Terror a “treasonous Fifth Column” and “legitimate targets.”

No, seriously.

Gone But Never Forgotten 

  
A friend reminded me that today is Molly Ivins’ birthday. If you’ve never read her stuff, either from The Texas Observer or her collected newspaper columns, you are missing out on the most trenchant political satirist since HL Mencken. Not a day goes by that I don’t see an item in the news, usually the kind of stupidity and pomposity she loved to skewer, and think damn, I wish I could get her take on this!

Thanks for everything, Molly. You were one of a kind.

I’m Gonna Respectfully Disagree

  
Donald Trump will ALWAYS be funny, but I agree with Rolling Stone that the ones who don’t get the joke are pretty damned scary.

A Little Good News

Hawaii pledges to go 100% renewable...without using LNG as a transition. Definitely a BFD!

Saving the Land

Absolutely fascinating story of how the Tsilhqot’in Nation saved most of their traditional land in British Columbia after a prolonged court fight. While the legal status of Indians is different in Canada than in the United States, there are some sad similarities: extrajudicial killings, land theft, fraudulent treaties. Still, it’s hard to imagine any U.S. Judge being as respectful and accommodating of Indians as the trial judge was in this case.

Happiness Is A Warm Gun

More Americans have been killed by guns since 1968 than in all our wars, combined.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: America isn’t violent because we have too many guns; America has too many guns because we are violent.

In Case You Needed More Evidence…

  
…that Donald Trump is, in fact, batshit crazy: behold Trumpland (formerly the United States of America)!
