A tattoo on the upper lip of 20-year-old Anthony Brandon Gonzales led to his arrest last week in the home invasion of an Elvis impersonator in Pueblo County.

Concentrated weirdness:

Look, I’m a busy man. I have things to do, people to see, and money to make. I don’t have the time to read all the comments in all the threads. That’s just the f’n way it is!

So, listen up morons. If you want a comment added to the Hall of Fame, you need to FOLLOW DIRECTIONS! They’re right there, under the picture of the Three Stooges. Don’t make a maniac out of me!

Where’s Joe?

And for no particular reason, other than I like it, I present one of my favorite Elton John songs. Bite me.

I found this interesting–especially after the recent childbirth discussion below. It’s almost like the answer is right there.  Speaking metaphorically, like the answer is so close you could reach across the bed and find it. But the answer isn’t staring you in the face. The answer is snoring softly and drooling on the pillow. Money quote:

The most vulnerable period for depression in men was three to six months postpartum, he found, with a quarter of the men who experienced depression afflicted during this time period.

It’s a mystery.

United States v. Arizona May 18, 2010

As explained by our President and our Attorney General.

The sad thing about this is — they are the racists.  Two privileged black men who have been born and raised in the culture of phony victimization, successfully promoted by race pimps like Mr. Al Sharpton and and Mr. Jesse Jackson (neither of whom deserve the title of “Rev.” for being theologically untrained community agitators).

So, the only issue they recognize is the possibility of racial profiling, which the Arizona law specifically prohibits.

Two black guys flinging the race card without a second thought, not having read the Arizona legislation.

Hey guys:  illegal alien is not a race.

By the way, what’s wrong with “profiling” anyway? Does it not make sense to pay attention to Arabs, Persians, and Pakistanis at the airport, pat them down, and search their luggage first?

Of course it does. Their coreligionists have declared jihad on the United States. Leave me alone; let me board the plane. There is no good reason for the TSA to open my luggage in public and expose my inflatable companion to strangers. That is embarrassing, and pointless. There is no extreme group of Lutherans that have declared jihad on the United States.

At least, not that you know about.

Two Types of Men May 17, 2010

Type I:  Ronnie James Dio, heavius duticus Rock Star, has died.  Wherever he is now, they are rockin.

Type II:  My nephew.  This past weekend was his fiancee’s bridal shower.  A ladies event.   The boy would not LEAVE.   She opened her gifts, little nighties, girly things, and there was the groom, sitting right next to her, wearing bows on his head.   Idiot.

Please go away, little buckaroo. 

Then we had a belly dancing lesson.  My sister in law has been belly dancing for years.  We had little jingly scarves tied around our hips and were having a ball, giggling and shimmying.   Loved every minute of it.   Much better than your generic bridal shower games, which are a howling bore.   My 75 year old mother in law said ‘best shower EVAH!”

Where was the groom while we belly danced?  Right in the middle of it, wearing his own jingly scarf on his hips.   Absolutely ridiculous.

I thought the bridal shower was sacrosanct for men, a rubicon not to be crossed.   What the heck’s going on?

American Emergency Rooms set to become even more overwhelmed, thanks to Obamacare.

“Everybody expected that one of the initial impacts of reform would be less pressure on emergency departments; it’s going to be exactly the opposite over the next four to eight years,” said Rich Dallam, a healthcare partner at the architectural firm NBBJ, which designs healthcare facilities.

“We don’t have the primary care infrastructure in place in America to cover the need. Our clients are looking at and preparing for more emergency department volume, not less,” he said.

Seriously, I am so furious at what the left has done to our healthcare and innovation with this monstrosity, all I can say is (warning: cover your ears below the fold):

Union Libs Attempt The Worst Viral Video Ever May 15, 2010

I am happy to help them out. This is comedy gold.

The sad thing is, some of those people were serious.  They were not just there for the party.

Meanwhile, the rest of America is wondering why California, more richly blessed than any other state, is approaching bankruptcy and looking to us to bail her out.

I mean, those people are insane.

Large conventions have given up on S.F., an otherwise desirable venue, except for the the cost.  Big conventions go to New Orleans and San Antonio, where the price is right.  While these fools act ridiculous, attempting to maintain their over-priced jobs, their jobs are leaving the state.

They just don’t get the fact that a massive state bureaucracy, and their over-priced union labor, is imposing a cost on California that is dragging them down.

The larger lesson is this:  California is hopeless.

My personal appeal to America is this:  LET CALIFORNIA DIE.

California is not really “too big to fail.”  Dang.  We made that mistake when we thought that about Fannie Mae.  Lesson learned.

New York and New Jersey are also going down.  Like Greece, they will be looking for kindred states to rescue them.

Sorta like like Greece is now a dependent of Germany.  Right now, Greek union stalwarts are dependent on hard-working Germans, because they are linked by the value of the Euro currency.

The Germans are not happy about this.  Neither are the Greeks.  The Greek unions are rioting in the streets of Athens because the Germans are not being sufficiently generous to maintain their bloated public sector and their unfunded pension liabilities.

California = Greece

I say — just say no.  Let California implode, and then maybe we can start over and make something worthwhile with the land.

Maybe Arizona will deflect some illegal immigrants towards California to rationalize the labor market.

Just say NO to California.  Those idiots deserve their fate.  The video above proves that.

Thanks to d3ft punk for the tip.
