saw this via the Guardian. She actually said this shit, pandering to her reThugs here, in "a parking lot in Malibu" of all places.
I oppose biological boys who are trans competing in girls sports in school...it just isnt fair. And we have to protect girls sports...
I'm trans. This bitch has no idea what's coming.
As Mr. T would say, "Pity the fool!"
Here we have a former President, impeached twice, acknowledged as the main source of instigating a bloody insurrection and attempted coup (right here in the good ole you ess of aay), and he's out there in public still spouting the big lie and continuing to be the seditionist shitgibbon we all know him to be.
So why isn't someone cuffing and perp walking him right into custody? The authorities are so good at shooting first and asking questions later, how come we aren't busting this dude's chops? Cause he's white? Cause of the stink it'll raise? Cause it's not prosecutable?
We're such a civilized, free country, everyone gets their day in court (except, oh I dunno...George Floyd maybe?). Is that what we're waiting for? Why are we waiting...exactly? For the 'Rona to finish the job? Or until he gets behind the wheel of a car? He's already killed half a million Americans. Waiting on the NYDA to finally issue indictments for tax fraud?
And when some gun nut in FL decides enough is enough, and lets loose on Smarm y Lardo, am I just supposed to pray that the orange tub of goo gets slathered with lead? (I do that anyway, as a matter of course).
Treason. Could be just another breakfast cereal for all we care.
In many countries we have chained the savage and starved him to death.
In more than one country we have hunted the savage and his little children and their mother
With dogs and guns through the woods and swamps for an afternoons sport.
In many countries we have taken the savages land from him and made him our slave,
And lashed him every day and broken his pride, and made Death his only friend,
And overworked him till he dropped in his tracks.
There are many humorous things in the world. Among them, the White mans notion that he is less savage than the other savages.
In the 16th and 17th centuries, everything for export had to be transported by ship. It was also before the invention of commercial fertilizers, so large shipments of manure were quite common. It was shipped dry, because in dry form it weighed a lot less than when wet.
Once water (at sea) hit it, not only did it become heavier, but the process of fermentation began again, of which a by-product is methane gas. As the stuff was stored below decks in bundles you can see what could (and did) happen. Methane began to build up below decks and the first time someone came below at night with a lantern, BOOM!
Several ships were destroyed in this manner before it was determined just what was happening.
After that, the bundles of manure were always stamped with the instruction: 'Stow high in transit' on them, which meant for the sailors to stow it high enough off the lower decks so that any water that came into the hold would not touch this "volatile" cargo and start the production of methane.
The instruction was naturally shortened to the stamp ' S.H.I.T ', (Stow High In Transit)
So its really not a swear word, but has come down through the centuries, and is in use to this very day.
You probably did not know the true history of this word.
Neither did I.
I had always thought it was a golfing term.
If you've heard this before, it's still a good story. With all the crap happening right now, a laugh doesn't hurt. You're welcome.
I wished my Mom a Happy Pi Day.
She responded with homemade coconut creme.
I love Pie Day!
There's a "pandemic within the pandemic" overlooked here on DU. Trans Youth - especially Black Trans Women - are now doing the heavy lifting and paying the price.
You want to celebrate Women's Day?* Then read This:
*as we most certainly should - adore Shaking The Tree btw)
On Netflix, and speaks to the power of Article XIV a.k.a. the 14th Amendment. The very first time the word "EQUAL" is written into our Constitution.
If you want to get fired-up about the Blue Tsunami (which is here btw), then absorb every moment of this series, and why so much is riding on the Voting Rights and Equality Act bills now approaching the Senate.
The waiting is over. It is well past time to turn NO into NOW!
Bionic Spotlights? Alien Tape? Manly Bands?
I confess to being a bit dazed and confused. Seriously, WTF? Anyone actually buying, or literally buying this stuff?
I sent Sen. Lisa Murkowski a Mr. Potato Head Little Taters Princess Spudette, from Amazon as a gift, with a note to 'please vote YES on the Equality Act!' Cost me less than $15; it arrives next Wed. March 3. I've also sent a note to Wonkette, and even Rep. Marie Newman (proud mom of trans daughter) putting this idea out there.
I encourage everyone to do likewise. Send a Potato Head to a Senate Republican right now! Tell your friends. Flood Congress with Potato Heads in support of the Equality Act! Extra points for sending girl-identified taters with the "Mr." logo!
I don't have Facebook or Twitter, so if you'd give this idea a push for me, the optics on this would be awesome.
The waiting is over. The time is now. Here's a list to get you started:[link:https://contactsenators.com/party.php?party=republican|]
Let's get into some good trouble together.
Trans Lives Matter!
