Late Friday Early Caturday

Gertrude knows that a basket of freshly folded laundry is a bed we have custom-made for her.

When one knows something that is not true, they know it really fervently.

it is God’s will that I lay here!

Stupidity Burns

Click for Daily Kos

I have long asserted that the apparent stupidity of Rethuglicans is wilful and malicious. If you saw Pumpkin turn his daily COVID-19 hour of lies (“press briefing” LOL) into a commercial for My Pillow today, you now know what I mean.

But even more seriously: read this article. The aim of the right-wing noise machine now appears to be literally to reduce the population. To kill as many of us as they can.

Other conservatives have framed protective measures as a threat not only to America’s rugged individualism but to masculinity. The Christian pastor Jonathan Shuttlesworth referred to social distancers as “sissies” and “pansies” who have been “neutered,” and described Christians who use hand sanitizer as having “fake faith” and “no balls.” Another minister said he would never close his church, because his congregants were not “pansies.” Some politicians, including the lieutenant governor of Texas, and pundits, including Glenn Beck, have gone so far as to suggest that older Americans should be willing to risk death to preserve the economy.

The Conservative Campaign Against Safety

Good old toxic masculinity! Just when you thought that was something we only worried about in happier times, like 2018. This may be evil of me but I really sincerely hope they get exactly what they wish for. That is to say, they should get exactly what they wish for you and me.

NOW I’m Scared

Pence is now in charge of the US response to COVID-19 aka Coronavirus.

Let’s see how he did with his last public health crisis: click through!

This is beyond frightening. A man who fully credits the wilful ignorance known as religion as the #1 guiding force in his life and his work.

Here’s his first action as your Coronavirus Czar:

Gawd will fix it?

When this fails, Pumpkin will blame Pence and Pence will blame teh Gay.

Teh Gay Agenda

pssst… don’t tell anyone… atheists have the same agenda. we’re just about 40 years behind in the program.

Hasa Diga Eebowai!

I went to the Spectrum cable store today to pick up a part for my setup that they provide, that needs replacement.

Shortly after I joined the waiting list, a guy walked in wearing jeans and a t-shirt with a design just like this one:

So I was curious, I had never encountered this verbiage. I googled it on my phone. (You should do that too now, if you need to. The words being what they are, I don’t want to have to tag this post n_s_f_w.)

So when the guy wearing this most-excellent shirt wandered by, I told him I had a high opinion of it. He said, Really? What does it mean? I have no idea. It was a gift.

I was a little taken aback. For one thing, I would never wear a t-shirt with a message if I did not know what it meant! Would you? And now I had a dilemma. Am I going to tell this person what his t-shirt means? What if he’s super-religious? That’s always a possibility, in the USA. What if he has a meltdown, or becomes violent, right here in the cable store? I did not really want some random guy to learn about the blasphemy on his body from me.

Nope, I wimped out of that scene. I advised him that he should look it up, it was more fun to learn this one for oneself. Immediately, he scampers back to his seat. He and his wife start eagerly searching on their phones.

Next thing I know he’s heading back over to me with (yay!) a smile. He says, Well, f* God! I don’t care, I’m an atheist!. I said, So am I! And we exchanged high-fives.

This turned out OK but I find it a little sad that I had to worry.
