I know you want to forget George Bush existed, but his crater still smolders.


"Why do you always bring up George Bush?!?" is the complaint I often hear from conservatives.

Let me help you. George Bush isn’t just the worst President we had in our lifetime, he is a living, breathing example of what one poor choice can do to a country.

Stand him next to Clinton, and you can see the wasteland he created with his economic policies.

We’re still digging out.

Stand him next to Obama, you can see the crater we are still crawling out of from his needless wars.

We’re still digging out.

Stand him next to Carter, and while Carter is building houses for the poor, George Bush is painting watercolor spaniels.

And his Supreme Court is turning us into an Oligarchy.

Eight years. That’s all it took for one easily manipulated dimwit to knock this country to it’s knees.

And there Bush stands - wearing his little apron, painting his little paintings while the country is still struggling from the crap job he did.

So, that’s why we compare.

George Bush is still here. But so are other, better Presidents who did (and are doing) other, better things.

Sorry your guy sucked. But you have to live with it.

Lord knows, the rest of us are.

Happy Easter, Cliven Bundy. Here is our Easter truce.

Hey, Cliven Bundy.

It’s Easter.

You’re probably on your compound feeling pretty good about yourself. I mean, in the short run, you gun-bullied yourself up and stood your ground against a black guy.

Kudos.

You know your son will pay for that, right? At some point, all your sins will come to bear and somebody will have to pay the price.

The price being, for what it’s worth, your fair share.

I post about you a lot here. Because I think you are everything that is wrong with this country.

Entitled and lazy.

I don’t like you for the same reason I don’t like Hipsters. You wake up and assume the world owes you something, and it does not.

Unless you cure a disease or invent something that makes everybody’s life easier, it does not.

And just to say it: You’re not the strong farm-hand that built this country, you’re the lazy son of a son of a son who believes they have some sort of right to prosperity.

So.

Here we are.

Easter.

You’re probably babbling on about Jesus, as though you practiced His teachings, rather than appropriated them for your own greed.

I don’t know you. But from what I know of you - and who you surround yourself with - I don’t like you much. Maybe you’ll surprise me. Doubtful.

But I hope today is a good day for you.

Because on Monday, I’m going to be wondering why the government isn’t clamping down on your everything.

Why your bank accounts don’t work.

Why your cows are still your cows.

On Monday, I wish you poverty and justice.

Which is why today I wish you peace.

Happy Easter.

One Jew’s Easter Message to believers and nonbelievers.

It’s Easter.

I don’t know what that means to you. I’m Jewish. I don’t really know what it means to me.

If you’re Christian, have a happy Easter.

Younger me would mock you - with the chocolate and the bunnies. But me - now? If you’re happy and you’re not using your beliefs/gifts/talents to make the world a horrible place, have at it.

Go. Win for your team.

And while you do, if you’re letting others live their lives… if you’re letting my friends find abundance, I’m not going to judge you for what you use to do the same.

Whatever makes you a good person is cool with me, and - I believe - should be cool with everyone. I’m not going to be the guy that pounds on you for your faith.

I know awesome people of faith. And the world could use more awesome people - regardless of what fuels them to be awesome.

Be right in your own life.

Figure out what your own “heaven” is.

Be a good person.

And have a great today.

From the upcoming Batman video game:Batman throat punching a goon wearing the confederate flag t-shirt.I wonder if this character’s playable weapon is a poorly spelled sign? Which moonshine is his power up? What’s his kryptonite… School?Oh my God, I love this so much.

Allegedly, millions of armed patriots are gearing up to camp out in DC until they force twice elected President Barack Obama out of office.
Aside from how laughable this is - aside from the justifiable airstrike I would hope for if an armed pack of secessionists tried to overthrow a duly elected president —
— let’s drill it down to what this also is.  
Bigots, so sick and tired of seeing a black man as President they can’t wait the eighteen months it will take for him to be peacefully transitioned out of office.
With every post, the cement of who you bundy ranchers, open-carry impeachers, secessionist-dreamers really hardens and dries.
You’re the Klan.  You’re the American Nazi party.  You’re nationalists, not patriots.  
And you’ve been very frustrated for six and a half years. Good.  
How you gonna feel when a woman is telling you what to do in 2016?

Mississippi is a red state moocher, getting two bucks back for every one buck they give.  
They also just passed a harsh, “let’s hate gays” bill.
So 1) -  #NoMoreFilming in that dirtbag of a state.  I’m sure there are other places in America we can find backwood swamps.
But 2) Every piece of mail we send them - from their welfare checks to their unemployment checks to their social security checks to their food stamps… EVERY ONE OF THEM…
…should have a Harvey Milk stamp.
Just think of the money we’d save when they were so scared of the stamp they threw the check out.Mississippi is the #2 moocher in the united states, getting $2.02 for every dollar they pitch in to the federal government.Their governor just signed a sweeping gay-hating bill.  Clearly, there needs to be education.So what if THIS stamp was on every piece of government assistance that went to Mississippi?  You want your money?  Well, here’s a gay icon.  Too much of a homophobe to even look at his face?  Write “Return to Sender.”

Hey, Mississippi. You can go now.

If you are a production and you film in Mississippi, you are anti-gay and pro-dead kids in schools.

Got it?

They signed an anti-gay bill: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/03/mississippi-anti-gay-bill_n_5087483.html

And they created a “Second amendment weekend”: http://thinkprogress.org/justice/2014/04/04/3423207/mississippi-governor-signs-bill-creating-second-amendment-weekend-with-state-subsidized-gun-sales/

So let’s stop treating this state like they’re civilized. Let’s stop putting cameras on it like it deserves the light of day.

This state sucks. And should be shunned.

And when the next hurricane comes, WE can decide whether they are deserving of our kindness.
