For all you repressed Christian haters out there...

Geezuz, what the hell is wrong with these people. Jason Collins comes out at the age of 33...THIRTY-THREE! He's been - I don't want to say 'hiding in the closet'...that's just ridiculous. He's been managing his life so you CHRISTIAN haters, you SPORTS DOOFUSES, you PATHETIC flotsam of humanity bobbing around life out there...won't vilify him, string him up - hey, he's black and he's gay - won't think he's going to hell - hey, guess what? He doesn't fucking care anymore what you think. He's FREE. That is what the American use of the word 'freedom' means. Free to be who you are. Free to be who you are without hurting a fly.

You're probably too bloody young to remember this book: Free To Be You and Me by Marlo Thomas..."the basic concept was to encourage post-1960s gender neutrality, saluting values such as individuality, tolerance, and comfort with one's identity. A major thematic message is that anyone—whether a boy or a girl—can achieve anything." Well, that was in NINETEEN SEVENTY-TWO! What the hell is wrong with this country? Sorry, my panties are in a twist over this.

Some doofus on ESPN - hope he's job hunting right now - had this to say:

ESPN Sportscaster Immediately Trashes First Out NBA Player: Jason Collins Is Not ‘A Christian’

He made the comments in front of his openly gay colleague, LZ Granderson:

BROUSSARD: Personally, I don’t believe that you can live an openly homosexual lifestyle or an openly, like premarital sex between heterosexuals. If you’re openly living that type of lifestyle, then the Bible says you know them by their fruits. It says that, you know, that’s a sin. If you’re openly living in unrepentant sin, whatever it may be, not just homosexuality, whatever it maybe, I believe that’s walking in open rebellion to God and to Jesus Christ. So I would not characterize that person as a Christian because I don’t think the bible would characterize them as a Christian.

First of all, he, Broussard, is obviously gay (repressed) but somebody has to tell him that his version of Christianity is a total fantasy. Hmmm, maybe that's it. He fantasizes about Jesus. 

There are so many 'wars' out've noticed, right? How very Christian to be constantly at 'war' about something...Muslims, drugs, women, healthcare, sex, sex ed, OMG it goes on an on. I have nothing more to say except to repeat: "I'm mad as Hell and I'm not going to take this anymore". Enough with dunderheads telling us how to live and what to think. Frankly, I'm sick of Christianity.

Feel free to SHARE. Thanks.

The NRA As Third Party, Shadow President & Militant Enforcer

The title says it all really. They are f**king running this country. For now anyway. Because they have got those weak-willied Congressmen by the nuts, terrified of acting on principle (do they have any?) and scared out of their minds of losing their jobs. Because if they lost, they would have to get a real job.

How the NRA got to this position of power should be a dire warning to the citizenry of this country. Passivity, complacence and letting others (activists) do the work is not a viable business model. Passionate crazies have a ton of energy and are laser focused on their goals. Regular people watch the news, wring their hands, complain about the government and often don't even bother to vote. Keep it up and next thing you know, Wayne "KooKoo" (click on link) LaPierre will be taking the Oath of Office.

Seriously, folks - to quote our dear VP - if this isn't a call to arms - yes, you heard that right - then I don't know what will get people off their butts to take part in this so-called democracy of ours. Petitions on-line are asking people to take a 'pledge' to not give money to the shamed candidates, Democrat or Republican, who voted against the Firearms Bill that simply mandates background checks before someone buys a gun. Apparently 91% of Americans want background checks but there was a disconnect somewhere that didn't get that message across. It's easy to sit at your computer and click on petitions 'n stuff but the real action happens when people are truly passionate about their issues, get involved, give of their time and see causes through to the end.

We did not elect the NRA and they have no business dictating policy to the extent that they do. They are drunk with power and they must be stopped.

We are the 91%. Here are a few ways to help in California - Firearms Policy Coalition:  Check other states for opportunities to help put the NRA where they belong. At a shooting range. Or something.
