The horror...the horror

Made a few changes around the sidebar, just in case you were wondering.  The Global Warming widget is quite clever and keeps track of all kinds of useful solar data, and I think we're done with the 2010 election so I removed those links.  I also removed a certain war correspondent's link for what I consider to be egregious offenses against adult behavior AND Blackfive's Uncle Jimbo (Note for people who have $variable-Studies degrees, that means two completely different and possibly non-intersecting categories.)  Not that said correspondent will notice or care, but when you repeatedly insult people I like and act like a jerk I will delete your link.  Fair warning to everyone.

Not that I agree with Uncle Jimbo about women in combat, and I'm sure he cares as much as the recently-unlinked correspondent.  I think, however, that I have uncovered the reason why he feels so strongly on the subject.

WARNING!  Not safe for work.  Not safe for ANYTHING with a central nervous system.  I'm warning you.

You're going to click the link anyway, aren't you.  Sigh.  They never listen ...

Stuxnet gets political

Guess what? Stuxnet is now teh stoopid. Why, you may well ask? Because George W. Bush was involved. No, really. Look at the dates on these stories. Until Bush was directly connected by the New York Times, everybody in the computer security world was saying how clever Stuxnet was. This is how insidious Bush is, he can go back in time and make a computer virus stupid. With his mind. I swear, it's like his name is a killing word. (Can I say that any more?)

I wonder what R. Lee Ermey would have to say....

Violent Rhetoric --Words that imply a situation that could end in tears and/or hurt feelings, or have an origin or connotation that implies band-aids and boo-boos. E.g. campaign (military), tactics (military), take aim (guns), target (guns), push, shove, point, etc. Alt: Anything Sarah Palin says, including "and" and "the". NOTE: only conservatives are held to this standard. For example "make a necklace out of their ears" is just a normal liberal expression of frustration and nobody should feel the least bit threatened by it, even the people named as having a central role in said ear necklace.

Interjecting Yourself Into the Conversation -- Daring to contradict slurs and accusations, especially if conservatives defend themselves against liberals.

Extremist -- All conservatives and some paranoid schizophrenics. Alt: anyone who disagrees with a liberal (SEE: racist)

Vicious Animal -- One that defends itself against attack, especially if it is successful.

You know, with all the pundits punditing non-stop about this "climate of hate" I have yet to hear one of them suggest that the liberals lead by example and stop gratuitously insulting people whose only real crime is disagreeing with them. For extra credit, they can apologize for all the nastiness they spewed for the last ten years about Bush. I mean really, he dynamited the levees to destroy New Orleans? That's calm rhetoric?

A Time for Snarking

As the terrible details about the deranged Arizona shooter trickle out, one begins to wonder if brain rot is contagious in certain susceptible populations, such as liberal politicians and pundits. Maybe Loughner was on to something about mind-control grammar, and his word-salad spewings tripped a switch in softer brains. E.g, the sheriff who admits they don't know what made the gunman shoot Giffords, BUT he's sure Palin has something to do with it. Nifty and evidence-free! If this guy starts claiming he's Napoleon would anyone be surprised?

Next in the copy-cat madness brigade is one Representative Peter King, who has the bright idea of forbidding those nasty guns from being 1,000 feet or closer to government officials. Now, there are a few wrinkles in enforcement or even obedience to this proposed law, namely as long as government officials have their human disguises on they look exactly like everyone else. How to tell who needs the 1,000' radius? I suggest Snarkatron's Amendment to this legislation: That all government officials wear identifying marks -- say, a large circle of concentric red and white rings-- on both front and back so they will be known as someone you should not shoot. Possibly even on either side of the official, if they are of a large disposition. Oh, and a helmet with a flashing light. This would have the added benefit of allowing decent people to avoid them and protecting the innocent minds of children who might otherwise grow up thinking a career in government would be appropriate.

I'm not saying that's the only way to solve the problem. We could also institute Government Reservations, where all government officials must live and work, complete with barbed wire and guard towers. It would be easy to keep weapons the proper distance if all the "protected individuals" were isolated to a few easily-avoided locations. I mean, we have no *evidence* that there is a connection to government service and paranoid schizophrenia, but I "feel sure" if we look hard enough we'll find one!
