Donkey is Bent Out Of Shame About Genetically Modified Foods Even Though She’s Never Been Concerned About Her Chemically Modified Face

I just say.

Why would ANYONE but Monsanto employees vote no on Prop 37 (mandating GMO labels on food products)?!???

  10. Tremendous Liar; Donkey Repugnant says:

    Oh my fucking god, Donk is ringing me so hard. I voted against 37 and encouraged anyone who would listen to do likewise. I’m tempted to write something pedantic and soapboxy about it, but I’ll restrict myself to saying that I found it nauseatingly anti-science. My basic position expressed here: http://www.michaeleisen.org/blog/?p=1210

    Donkey’s position on this is just more evidence that she’s conforming to her grifter-woo circle, the only club that will still have her as a member.

      I guess girl cannot fucking read or synthesize. Julia Allison is a fucking idiot.

    • Random Snowflake says:

      It is not at all unreasonable for me, or anyone else, to want to know what’s in their food.

      • Tremendous Liar; Donkey Repugnant says:

        I’ve written longish things about this, but I particularly like this paragraph from the shortish blog post I linked to:

        The law would require the application of a catchall “Contains GMOs” label to any product containing any ingredient from a genetically modified plant, animal or microbe. This language reflects the belief of its backers that GMOs are intrinsically bad and deserve to be labeled – and avoided – en masse, no matter what modification they contain or towards what end they were produced. This is not a quest for knowledge – it is a an attempt to reify ignorance.

        • JFA says:

          Stop trying to make sense and understand things! GMOs are not healthy and they are just wrong and she is so healthy and pescetarian and she has a boyfriend!!!!! Organic!!!!

        • A colossus of scheme juices and failure says:

          You are assuming that people are going to run away en masse from a “contains GMO” label.

          Some people are going to, some are going to read the label and buy the product anyway and some are not even going to notice the label is there.

          Transparency about what is in your food is always good, even if the labelling is not perfect (it never is).

          You could ask yourself why is that Monsanto and its friends have spent so much money defeating Prop 37.

          What are they trying to hide, basically?

          • Tremendous Liar; Donkey Repugnant says:

            I do not think people in general would run from a “genetically engineered” label. I think Prop 37 supporters wanted the label because they were planning to run from the label.

            “GMO” and “genetically engineered” are imprecise, overbroad, objectionable terms of doubtful informative value to anyone who has not already decided (without reliable evidence) that all GMOs are bad. As the blog post I linked to points out, informative labels of the diverse group of crops referred to as GMOs are possible, but the catchalls “GMO” or “genetically engineered” are not sufficiently specific. Prop 37 wasn’t even an honest beginning to build on.

            Humans have been genetically modifying crops for thousands of years. Genetic modification is the purpose of selective breeding, among other techniques acceptable to anti-GMO activists. Anti-GMO activists have no problem with genetically modified foods. That is, unless the food was modified using a method springing from modern science. This is strange, because these methods are diverse and some have greater potential for negative consequences than others. Throwing all foods modified using modern techniques together as “GMOs” is a weird and uninformative way to talk about food unless the intent is anti-science alarmism, not better food information and better food safety.

            I’m sure Monsanto has plenty to hide, but I don’t see what new information Prop 37 would elicit. Monsanto’s list of GMO products is obviously already a matter of public record. If 37 passed, consumers wouldn’t even be able to tie their labeled food to Monsanto. If there were a proposal to put any other label which would decrease sales on a random section of their products, Monsanto would respond similarly.

            Of course transparency is good and existing labels are imperfect, but the “genetically engineered” labels would be first of their kind, and not in a progressive sense. 37 labels would be the first to appear DESPITE scientific consensus saying that the information has no bearing on the food’s safety or nutritional value. Existing labels appear BECAUSE scientific consensus says that the information is relevant to foods’ safety or nutritive value. The inclusion of the Prop 37 labels would cheapen the valuable information already included in food labels. I support more and better food labeling. Prop 37 was an attempted step toward ignorance.

          • Tremendous Liar; Donkey Repugnant says:

            I think I left off my triumphant closing sentence:

            Therefore, of course, it’s the one issue that Julia Allison truly cared about during the past elections.

          • A colossus of scheme juices and failure says:

            Funnily enough, I don’t think genetically modified foods are inherently dangerous. GM soybeans and corn have been around for a good 15 years and there no discernible health effects on anyone.

            I just think that the people who are concerned should see have the possibility to know what they are eating and, if they choose to do so, avoid it.

            Prop 37 would have been a good start, but big agro killed it.

          • Random Snowflake says:

            It doesn’t matter that it might not be dangerous. I still have a right to know what’s in my food.

            All the long tl’dr paragraphs are irrelevant.

          • stalker says:

            Let the record note that I agree with you TL;DR. I’m sure it will be the only time, ever.

    • Cowboys & Brayliens says:

      Your position is all well and good, but relies on the average consumer looking up the brands of the products they’re buying before they get to the store. I guarantee that nobody does that. I voted yes on 37 as a matter of transparency, nothing else. It is (or rather was) a step, not a destination.

      I have no doubt that Santa Monica Whole Foods yoga moms would fucking freak if all of a sudden everything on the shelves had a “Contains GMO ingredients” on the label. That’s an overreaction. However, right now there is absolutely no knowledge whatsoever about which products are made with, eg GMO corn, and which aren’t. None. Nobody is going onto the Monsanto website to look up which flavor of Doritos is GMO.

      I liken it to HFCS. Is HFCS intrinsically bad? Probably not; however it has been used so lazily by food manufacturers that it’s pervasive now. When we shop at the store, we try to avoid HFCS when we can (drinks, breads, yogurts, etc). As a side effect of this, we tend to get much less sweet products.

      I’m all for food engineering; vat-grown meat actually appeals to me and I suspect PETA will have a fuck of a time trying to continue their vegetarian push when bioengineered meat becomes commonplace. But I also do support something on the shelves that tells consumers where and how their food is being made.

      • A colossus of scheme juices and failure says:

        The only downside of the “GMO” label is that it could affect Monsanto’s profits as people, with or without a good reason, start to avoid GM foods.

        That is the only reason why Monsanto invested millions defeating Prop 37.

        To think that the people that killed Prop 37 wanted better labeling or wanted to support real science, sounds a little naive to me.

        • Tremendous Liar; Donkey Repugnant says:

          Like me, a lot of California scientists with no ties to the food industry found Prop 37 highly objectionable and anti-science. But yes, sadly, the real push that killed the bill came from the food industry campaign millions. As one biologist said, “CA RealPolitik: impassioned argument by scientists does nothing to shift public opinion on #Prop37. Heavy ad spending does plenty.”

      • stalker says:

        Given that we’ve been domesticating crops for thousands of years and breeding selectively, what food would you consider NOT to be genetically modified?

        • A colossus of scheme juices and failure says:

          Selective breeding is very different to genetic engineering.

          The GMO label should apply to organisms that have been modified by using genetic engineering techniques. That was what Prop 37 was about.

          There is no modification to the genes of an existing organism (i.e. genetic engineering) by selective breeding. You are just having some influence on the next generation by selecting to breed certain members of the species (e.g. keeping the seeds of your largest and juiciest tomatoes to plant next year).

          The issue is that Monsanto, Bayer et al outspent the supporters of Prop 37 5-to-1 and swayed the more gullible members of the public and if you think they did it because they had your best interests in mind, I have a bridge over the East River that you may be interested in buying.

          • stalker says:

            It’s a different technique but it leads to the same result: humans manipulating an organism to achieve a desired result.

            Therefore, I personally don’t see the bright line in the sand that says selective breeding is ok but other types of modification are not ok.

          • A colossus of scheme juices and failure says:

            So to you keeping the biggest ear of corn to plant next year is the same as bombarding a live plant with genetic material (that quite often comes from a different species) manipulated in a lab.

            Don’t choke on the Monsanto Kool-Aid!

          • stalker says:

            Oh honey. You just don’t seem to understand science. Or rhetoric for that matter.

            I agree that Monsanto is shady. But genetically modifying something is value-neutral. Transparency in what we consume is a worthy goal. The proposition as it stood was flawed though.

            I hope you have a pleasant weekend, dear heart.

          • Tremendous Liar; Donkey Repugnant says:

            So to you keeping the biggest ear of corn to plant next year is the same as bombarding a live plant with genetic material (that quite often comes from a different species) manipulated in a lab.

            Yes, in many ways, it is the same. In fact, genetic changes resulting from natural selection are often more extreme than those resulting from precise modern methods. For example, traditionally cultivated bread wheat has six sets of chromosomes, while its wild ancestors have two. One might even choose to call it a “Frankenfood”.

            Sharing of genetic material between different species is extremely common in the wild and also frequently results from anti-GMO activist approved genetic modification techniques such as selective breeding and vegetative grafting. The genetic material in the bread wheat I mentioned comes from over 3+ different species of wild grasses.

            The idea that a technique is necessarily worse for you just because performing it requires modern equipment is luddite.

            There is no modification to the genes of an existing organism (i.e. genetic engineering) by selective breeding. You are just having some influence on the next generation by selecting to breed certain members of the species (e.g. keeping the seeds of your largest and juiciest tomatoes to plant next year).

            This is all incorrect. First, no changes to the next generation would occur without genetic modification. Second, the genetic changes aren’t necessarily of the incremental, “oh, this year the fruit is slightly larger” type; some mutations important to selectively bred staple crops have been significant random mutations that make the crop look very different than anything in the wild, such as having six sets of chromosomes rather than two.

          • A colossus of scheme juices and failure says:

            It’s nice to see that *someone* believes that Monsanto, Bayer, Dupont et al spent $45 millions, out of the kindness of their hearts, so that we could have better science and better food labeling.

            I mean, it shows it was a good investment (for them).

          • Tremendous Liar; Donkey Repugnant says:

            Of course I don’t believe Monsanto and their cronies did this charitably. I don’t trust Monsanto and I didn’t like anything about the big money anti-Prop 37 campaign except perhaps for the result. It’s pure coincidence that the pro-science position and Monsanto’s corporate interests coincided on Prop 37.

          • A colossus of scheme juices and failure says:

            Of course it’s pure coincidence.

            Of course it is.

          • Tremendous Liar; Donkey Repugnant says:

            Hey, give teh scieenz some benefit of the doubt. I don’t doubt that it’s coincidence that you are on the same side of this issue as a Donkey. 😀

    Are these the only comments she made on the whole election? Glad to see she’s putting all her experience in politics to good use by caring about the important issues. I bet she’s just going to be mum on who she votes for from now on in case she finds a Jack McCain 2.0 and OBOs Debbie. The less internet scrubbing the better.

    • Whitleymariongilbertwaynemeetsscarysadshaw says:

      Donkey vote? Well since she’s way too unorganized to vote in advance or absentee that means she would have to stand in line with the rest of us plebes. I don’t think so.

      • A colossus of scheme juices and failure says:

        She’ll hire someone on taskrabbit to do it for her, of course.

    • FIEIRCE Mani (pedi) says:

      She was late about it too twittering about it the day after it was voted down. Hey Foolia why don’t you use your sought after brand at speaking engagements ( haha) and your over 100k plus real twitter followers and do something legit for politics and society? You’re few weeks late and trying to get on the band wagon now makes you look sort of…..stupid.

  12. Queen Neferteeri says:

    Actually, Restylane is made of substances that occur naturally in the human body – namely, hyaluronic acid. Can’t really call that “chemically modifying” her face.

    • Grifty Shades of Bray says:

      I see your point, though technically it is a chemical, even if it is a naturally occurring one. Botox on the other hand…not naturally occurring in the body and toxic in large amounts, but it can work well to fix certain things. Check out what Botox can do for MS patients, pretty amazing.

      I have used Restylane before in small quantities. It gets absorbed by the body after a while. It’s not harmful.

      I don’t condemn anyone for using fillers, however it is just ridiculous to think that anyone really needs to use anything like this at age 32 unless they’re correcting a big facial dent or something. She did it because she wanted to plump her lips, which always looks totally stupid on anyone of any age.

      • Stinky Velour Couture says:

        That photo is from years ago—maybe 27? which is a ridiculous age to be doing that shit.

          Mine have been deep since before I was 20. I didn’t start getting Restylane until early last year, but I’m past expiration.

      Such veeeheeeemency for all things New Age is not going to last.

    • Tingolayo says:

      Cafe Gratitude is a vegan restaurant where all the dishes have names like “I Am Grateful.” She’s definitely shopping for a new persona. As annoyed as it is to see her using something like this as fashion, it’s hilarious to see the most wasteful, plastic, clueless person in the world trying to shop American (except for everything in my apartment!), buy organic (except for Cheesy Skillets!), and be “natural” (except for everything on my head, face, body, and feet!)

      Sixth month “anniversary”… she is in high school. When will she celebrate six months’ worth of meaningful employment?

      • Tremendous Liar; Donkey Repugnant says:

        The Cafe Gratitude mini-chain came very close to closing recently due to a bevy of employee lawsuits. Their payment practices seem questionable, but not as bad as the fact that, like Lululemon, they are all tangled up in the cultish Landmark Forum and it seems you can’t become management without being a Landmark attendee.

        • Prof. F Camping says:

          they have some questionable practices for sure (they weren’t distributing tips to employees, or something?), but they have this really good kale and quinoa dish…

      • SirClompsAlot says:

        This makes me LOL big time because I’m not even kidding that every friend I’ve had that moved to LA has become obsessed with Cafe Gratitude in their first-year transformation into OMGCaliforniaHippy persona. I had a feeling it was vegan based on other things they’ve said. (Some yoga place with a famous yogi is also everyone’s new favorite thing upon arriving on the coast.) It’s funny that it’s part of Donkey’s put-on persona too. That said, my friends (especially two of them) are far from grifters and even quite well-off and level-headed, so I don’t know what it says now about them that they’ve fallen for the same kind of crap that a donkey would tumble into. Hmm.

    • Grifty Shades of Bray says:

      So when did her $grandma die? She actually counts her “anniversary” with Goat Soap as the day they met? She is infantile.

    • JFA says:

      Oh jesus christ. bad enough she is even celebrating 6 months. She is doing it TWO DAYS EARLY as well as ANNOUNCING IT. Fucktard.

    • Jacy says:

      Do people over 15 really celebrate their six-month anniversaries, or even fucking know when it is?

      • Wonkeye says:

        I have a friend—in her forties—who was seriously angry when her husband didn’t remember her HALF BIRTHDAY. I laughed in her face and told her she was an idiot. Donkey needs a friend like me.

      • JFA says:

        Answer: no. My bf doesn’t even know our anniversary. Oh, because we are not fucking married, and have been dating less than a year, and he has a penis and is over the age of 12.

      • JFA says:

        I did have friends though who celebrated their anniversary MONTHLY. I heard through the friend grapevine. I guess it’s like, the 8th of every month or something. Worse still, they had been together like, 75,000 years already.

        But again, Julia Allison is a mental midget with the emotional maturity of a prepubscent.

        Flights are also mad cheap for international flights on Christmas Day. That was my holiday avoidance technique for years.

        • JFA says:

          Don’t give me any ideas. But how far in advance do they have to be purchased? My bf will be in his home country this year. I wanna go, bad. And I loathe the holidays. I’ve avoided at least one Easter in europe in the past and it was awesome.

          • New Year New You says:

            I usually used to book in October I think, not sure how quickly they fill, but I don’t think they always fill, as often there used to be empty seats on the plane. I don’t think a lot of people know airlines fly on Christmas Day.

            The later you fly in the day, the cheaper the fares get as I think some people still try and get home on Christmas Morning. Honestly the prices are like half off what they are on the 24th. And they are equally cheap on the 26th, then they go back up again for a week, until New Year is over (I rang myself!!!).

            Do it do it, it’s fun. The airports are really quiet too.

      Don’t forget the praying.

      Thanksgiving was the only time my barely-religious parents ever prayed with family before a meal, and though I was only an adolescent, I hated it. My present-day atheist self is pleased that even then, I had seen the light.

    Excuse you all whilst I celebrate the use of the screenshot from my vid 😀 I had that crap recorded on my desktop comp forever and it was worth it to capture the donkey segment of it, but it was a BITCH to get together.

    In other news, I’m on la isla de lasagna and we had some ridiculous mess from Sandy but no major losses like parts of Manhattan, Jersey and the ocean/seaside areas like Freeport, Long Beach and Bayville. So much crazy. Staying with parents this second as the random snow actually caused another power outage where I live; we’d had electricity for like a day or two. Hope everyone is surviving and getting along OK, that shit was scary.

      • LEFOOLIEH says:

        I’ve done some crazy shit in my life and watching Sandy roar from where I lived was the first time I feared death. I got religious and prayed for my family. It was a bit much but it really was that scary to me. I was just waiting for it to end and hoping it would be over soon. The next morning there were three uprooted trees on the street just off mine. And the stupid village where I grew up that prided themselves on preserving ambiance by keeping up these huge dead trees instead of cutting them down are regretting it in a huge way today. Place looks like a wasteland now.

        • You can also scan says:

          So glad to hear you are ok. Storms are there to be weathered.

          I remember monsoon season in AZ during my 20s where I was amazed to see a giant trampoline lifted up by the wind from a backyard and deposited in front of the house on the street.

    • Norse Horse says:

      Hey LeFoolieh, just thinking of you and hoping you’re okay- just seeing your post. I’m on Lawn Guyland too, but on the east end, and though we did not get as slammed as hard as people in NJ, NYC, Nassau, mid-island etc. it was pretty boggling. We were miraculously lucky, but our close neighbors were without power for over a week. Had them over for hot meals, showers, checking the Internet for news, just watching TV- put on a lot of comedy for them, “Louie” and SNL etc. It sucks so badly to be without power, I felt so bad that we had it. My bro and his family came as refugees, was glad to have them.

      Sandy really was terrifying the day of. And we weren’t even in the target area. The wind was stressing and swaying mighty trees to what seemed the limit. Again, nothing like the monstrous damage and flooding elsewhere, but it was An Event. Lefoolieh, I truly hope things get back to normal as sooon as possible for you. “So much crazy” is right.

      • LEFOOLIEH says:

        Norsey! Thank you. Honestly I haven’t suffered that much, so I feel bad for even complaining. What’s lack of power when people have lost legitimate shit? Their houses and EVERYTHING? I’m just happy to have my family all well and good so they can annoy me further. Happy to hear you’re OK, too. Where I live I was waiting for a stop sign to fly straight out of the ground and not sure the house would even be standing when it all finally ended. More than anything though, I was worried for my family because where they live there are just dead trees everywhere. Swear I got hyper-religious and I am soooo not that biotch that goes to church, like ever.

          Hey, I hear you. Not religious either, no church for me for years, but I’ll say a little prayer now and again, not ashamed to say. This is probably the worst year of my life. Serious health scare in the spring, my dad passed away in September, this monster storm hurting and affecting so many friends and family worse than me. (Oh, and now I suspect I have bedbugs.) Hell yeah, I’ll say a prayer.

          A funny thing; when I was awaiting what I was sure to be a bad diagnosis, thinking I was going to die, I look over at this magnificent oak tree. I love this tree, it is beautiful and majestic in any season. 60 ft tall. I was really depressed and disconsolate, and thought this will sound crazy, I took to mentally saying hello to this tree. That I decided to call Godfrey, the God Tree. (I told you it would sound crazy; maybe I’m pagan at heart). Thinking I was doomed, Godfrey’s beauty, nature, is sort of what cheered me a bit. Or at least make me consider what a part of nature we all are. Deep thoughts, ha. Sort of mentally communing with this beautiful tree still gives me solace. I know this sounds terribly odd, but.

          Again, very glad you’re all right, LeFoolieh. We’ll get through this. Hell yes! And nothing wrong with a prayer now and then, even if we’re not religious. Best to cover our bases, ha. 🙂 And best to you.
          xo

          • LEFOOLIEH says:

            Not crazy at all; I thought it was beautiful! Sometimes is truly is just the little things, so thanks for this, again. Some of my friends are working in all different areas on recovery efforts so I get a lot of info on what’s going on all over LI. Today is the first day anyone has really gotten a break and even then it’s for like a few hours before they’re back on again. Just so much mess and the snow definitely didn’t help matters. Trees that for whatever reason didn’t go down by way of Sandy are now doing so with the help of the snow’s weight.

    Yes, no product should be genetically modified. Norman Borlaug only received a Nobel prize for his GMO wheat that made it possible to feed millions of starving people. But go ahead, Jackles, throw a label on it…we all know that you care about your nutrition and treat your body like a temple. I mean you are the spokesperson for Velveeta’s skillet dishes and kale juice.

    She is so insufferable.

      What if they had a grift and nobody came?

      • CurlingIronsAtDawn says:

        If a grift happens in a forest and no one comes, is it still a grift? Or does it cease to exist? If a grift happens but no one is falls victim, did it really occur? Are unattended grift conferences what really create black holes or is it comprised of imploded navel-gazers and ego bloggers? Is there a difference?

  22. CurlingIronsAtDawn says:

    Besides the ego-centric tweet hiccups, is this the end of an era? She seems to have finally proven that stupid is as stupid does. Therapy, self-reflection, personal growth and education aside, she appears to have discovered the next best cure for stupid, silence. She should be cautious though. The only thing worse than a revolted audience is an indifferent one.

    catladies,power is out again. tarp on my roof still holds though! snow is going to melt this wknd so husat should be ableto fix the shingles then. there are now 4 ppl displaced from their homes staying w me and my husband and the pup. we huddle by the fireplace and try not to lose it. please tell me how to keep my cool and accomodate everyone graciously. did i mention that in 6 1/2 months pregnant and nesting (well cant really nest w shit all over the house) and emotional oh and tht my face is still healing from that bite? xoxo, going crazy.

    • Leased D-Class TaskRabbit "boyfriend" (Formerly Floppy) says:

      :`( I guess try to remember and be thankful you’re the one that still has a house and not the four other people who have no where to go? Please be strong for your baby and the others, you can get through it and look back and know you did a very loving act for strangers. Not everyone will be grateful for help but they are probably in shock or depressed so try not to think they don’t care about you and your family if that is the case, nesting and being protective of your turf is a natural response.
      Cat hugs and best wishes.

      I’m so sorry you’re having to cope with this bullshit when you should be able to put your feet up and get ready for your imminent kitten! You are so generous to be caring for others.

    • LEFOOLIEH says:

      You truly are a saint. I was fortunate enough to be able to crash at my former supervisor/fam friends house for some days following the storm hitting and it’s amazing how much we take the little things for granted. I was in heaven. You are doing a great thing, and you’re doing it #whilst pregnant!

    • virgil reid says:

      omg 🙁 i would tell you to try to hang in there but i feel like you must have done that enough already.

    • Lily's 3rd Eye says:

      ARGH! Stay strong lady! My ideas for you are, please recognize and be mindful of the fact that 1. you are a hero for having those 4 people with you and 2. you are under a huge amount of stress. So my ideas for you are do whatever works for you to destress : take walks with your hubby or alone, get backrubs from him, meditate , get extra rest and take naps, make sure to get some alone and outside the house and’ off the grid’ time, preferably in nature. And breathe deeply- whether pedicures or acupuncture or primal scream or chocolate floats your boat, SELF CARE is what I’m saying. I have no idea of your personality but I also wanna say please don’t think you have to hostess those people, let them take care of you- and themselves. Surf the chaos a bit – other people shopping/ living/ cleaning or not /cooking in my kitchen/ bathroom/ world, let alone for days/ weeks while pregnant with a tarp roof (!) would SO trigger my control issues, so maybe just see this and know its gonna be a bit more chaotic for a while. Hope this helps, but please remember you are awesome and this is gonna be SUCH a great story for your child someday soon!

    • Lily's 3rd Eye says:

      ALSO: rereading your note I see how with no power, I sound insane to tell you to get pedicures, but really, I say TAKE BREAKS from your situation, you are not required to be in it 24/7. Even reading a book by candlelight with tea at home could help and I’d also say call friends/ family and ask to COMPLAIN for 10 mins! It’s super helpful. If really none of that is there go for walk with hubs and let him help you. Reconnect… you have each other and yourself and that’s what matters .

    • fig says:

      Would it help to think that with four guests right now making things stressful, in the future you probably have four highly motivated babysitters helping you to de-stress once the baby is around?

      • solidarity cat says:

        Exactly….you can cash this is later…:)
        Enjoy being pregnant! Even in these circumstances if possible. I used to want to clock people who told me that but there is something amazing about being able to keep that little baby all safe and warm while they are still inside you. I have a hunch it will never be so easy again. (My baby is going to be 5 months old on monday! It’s going so quickly and sometimes I want him to get back in my belly, like forever, so I can save him from everything. Is that weird? kaithxbi) And take NAPS. Take all of the naps. 🙂

        • solidarity cat says:

          Ugh now I’m looking back at my comment and thinking how trite it must sound for me to say enjoy being pregnant under the circumstances. What I mean is take care of yourself and you will be taking care of your little one. And that I guess it will never be that simple again. And that I really hope you get heat and power back soon. Ok. That’s all…solidarity cat out. 🙂

          • Greg says:

            I think it was a sweet comment. I am childless but I second “Take all of the naps.”

            Best of luck, i.just.can’t! You are showing that you can right now. But take care of you.

    I admit I am wildly curious about the R-rated thing that would blow me. (All along I thought it was called Warren Beatty.)

    If I had an extra grand lying around, I would even consider going. Isn’t there a guarantee that if I’m not completely and utterly blown I get my money back? How does one quantify such a thing? “Hello, Better Business Bureau? I am unblown.”

    • How Brayella Got Her Hoove Back says:

      Similarly, the “Morons With Signs” page on Facebook highlighted some racist moron’s FB postings. But, instead of FB removing the offensive post, they instead removed the MwS’s post & warned the admin not to post hate speech:

      Here’s the resulting follow-up to that FB idiocy:

      I do not support Jez in this little crusade. If you want to post stupid shit on the internet under your real name, you should be allowed to and not be shamed int0 deleting your account. Let the record stand so we can research these types of racist posts. The same goes for JAB. I want her to keep posting under her real name so it can reflect on her in the future. Not like she has a future, but still.

      • The Cabinet of Dr. Bobby says:

        I wholeheartedly disagree. If no one calls out these kids on their posts, they will continue to think it’s OK to make them. It’s really, really important to teach the under-18s how to not be racist – or at least, how to have a filter.

        • Wonkeye says:

          These kids are so self-absorbed they don’t even realize there’s a bigger (smarter, more diverse) world out there—this is a good lesson, says schoolmarm me.

        • How Brayella Got Her Hoove Back says:

          I’m w/ you, Dr. Bobby!

          On the same day I’d heard the “N” word for the first time, I later trotted it out when spatting w/ one of my sisters — my mom spontaneously slapped me & then made me go tell my dad what I’d said — he had me pick out the belt he busted my butt w/ (standard procedure if what ever you did was bad enough to get sent to him for discipline) — my career as a racist lasted < a day.

        • New Year New You says:

          Totes with you, most of the time kids are getting this discourse from home, or from their peers via the home; the education system is the only possible brake these kids have from stopping them turning into the vermin of society. I just hope their schools that they called did the right things.

          You can’t have Hate Crimes being a felony, but say that pubic hate speech is okay.

    OT but related — I was innocently watching TV last night (the Hallmark channel, I think, not one of my usual choices), and there was a horrifying yet intriguing commercial about skin-tag medicaments. Is this a thing now? If so, perhaps this can be Donk’s next grift.
