Sugasm #140

The image to the right is titled Mistress E courtesy of Dark Mistress.

I entered my Email story, Re: Dinner Last Night, in this week’s Sugasm.  It has a little long-distance domination/ voyeurism theme to it.  It didn’t win one of the top three, but life goes on.

I’m still looking for a blog carnival where my writings would be a better fit, so if you know of one, my Email address is in the right side bar or put it in the comments below.- JanieBelle

Yet More Editing of Reality

Parodia de propaganda militar en la novela de ficción \

Parodia de propaganda militar en la novela de ficción by Jaume d'Urgell @ Flickr

Don’t like reality?  Rewrite it.

It’s long been the policy of the Republican party at large, and the George W. Bush administration in specific, to screw with science and edit out the parts of it they don’t like.  They’ve done it at the EPA, NIH, NASA, wherever they’ve been able to get a political hack to use as a mouthpiece between the scientists and the people.

It’s very Orwellian.

Guess what?  Yeah, still at it.

U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney’s office was involved in removing statements on health risks posed by global warming from a draft of a health official’s Senate testimony last year, a former senior government environmental official said on Tuesday.

The former official, Jason Burnett, made the assertion and described similar incidents in a three-page letter to Senator Barbara Boxer, a California Democrat who is the chairwoman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. He then stood with her at a news conference at which she excoriated the Bush administration.

“History will judge this Bush administration harshly for recklessly covering up a real threat to the people they are supposed to protect,” Boxer said.

Only if we manage to get them out of power before they rewrite it, Senator.  What have you done lately to facilitate that?

If We Had Wanted More Republicans…

Please follow directions. by tread @ Flickr

Please follow directions. by tread @ Flickr

…we’d have voted for them, damn it.  We didn’t.  We voted for you.

In 2006, We The People of the United States of America, as a group, decided we had finally had enough of the raping of the Constitution by the Republican party.  In no uncertain terms we threw them down from their high and lofty pedestal of power, from whence they had been dictating this republic into a theocracy.

It should have told you something.  Apparently, you’re as deaf as a rock to the subtleties of a sea-change election.  Let me make this a little more clear for you then.

Stop.  Get up off your knees, Congresspeople and Senators of These United States.  The time for sychophancy and capitulation is long over.  The man in the White House is no longer the defacto dictator in these parts.  You are not required to march to the beat of his drum.

Get us out of Iraq.  Now.  Not later.

Desist supporting the hair-brained religious pandering, the head-in-the-sand sex mis-education programs, the promotion of mythology over reality, and the invasion of our most intimate moments.  Get out of our bedrooms, and get Jesus out of our legal system, our marriage laws, and our taxpayer supported programs.  Bring back the secular republic our forefathers bled and died for, and so meticulously set up for us.

End the “Domestic Surveillance Program“, which is clearly a violation of the Constitution.  You remember that thing, right?  The piece of paper that stands as a wall betwixt us and him?  The supreme law of the land that he’s been ignoring since he took up residency in the nation’s capital?  Remember that?  Remember your promises to us that you would put an end to his shredding of the contents of that document?

Apparently, a bunch of you forgot all that stuff, that cool November night the election results came in.

Fortunately, we didn’t.  And equally fortunately, some of us are about to remind you.

A Fitting Tribute to Caesar

Morph: George W. Bush and Nero, Wm Jas @ Flickr

I love the Beeb.

A citizens group in San Francisco wants to pay an ironic tribute to President George W Bush when he leaves office – by naming a sewage plant after him.

The group, calling itself the Presidential Memorial Committee of San Francisco, wants the issue voted on at this November’s election.

“It’s important to remember our leaders in the right historical context,” said petition organiser Brian McConnell.

’tis an entirely fitting tribute to His Holiness, The Glorified Houseplant Who Would Be Caesar.  He’ll be leaving many years worth of shit to clean up.

I ❤ ‘Frisco.

Puss ‘n Boots and Other Odds ‘n Ends

Gossiping Ducks., by foxypar4 @ FlickrThere are a couple little things that have accumulated in my files, things that I wanted to mention on the blog here at UDoJ, but are short little things more amenable to being Tweeted at Twitter, really. I’m going to round some of them up and sort of make a grab bag for you.

First and foremost, Kate needs good head. She’s changed the look of her blog, which is really cool looking now. But she needs a header graphic. I’ve thought about doing it myself, but in all honesty, I’m afraid there will be too much ‘me’ in it, and not enough Kate.

Molly suggested holding a contest, to see who can come up with the most Kate-like header graphic. I’m kind of liking that idea, and maybe if she feels a little more at home, she’ll post more. (Knee high leather boots would help with that, just so y’know.)  If there’s interest, maybe that’s just what we’ll do. Plus, giving Molly a peek above our garters is sure to get us a peek above hers. Well, that’s more like a long stare, actually…

Jindal obfuscates, Grace calls him out

Creationism renaming contest by cpurrin1 @ FlickrRecently, dishonest Creationists, dressed in their latest cheap tuxedo, managed to obfuscate and prevaricate enough to get a bill through the Louisiana legislature for the express purpose of bringing Fundamentalist Religion into Louisiana public high school Science classrooms, in direct violation of the First Amendment to the Constitution, and a ton of Federal and Supreme Court precedent.

(See Epperson v. Arkansas, Daniel v. Waters, Edwards v Aguilard, and especially Kitzmiller v. Dover for a good idea of the evolution of the increasingly deceptive tactics of Creationists to circumvent the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.  There’s even a transitional fossil that bears undeniable evidential witness to the outright dishonesty of the Intelligent Design Creationism Hoax.  It’s taxonomically correct name is the cdesign proponentsists.)

In this morning’s Times-Picayune, Stephanie Grace calls Jindal on his dishonesty, his evasions, and his deception in supporting and signing this bill into law.

The bill never mentions that evolution is almost universally accepted among scientists as the basis for modern biology.

And it skips right over the key fact that the effort is backed by the same archconservatives who’ve trying to force religiously based doubts over the theory, either in the form of creationism or its successor “intelligent design,” into science classrooms for years now.

Those efforts have been consistently rejected by the courts, which explains another artful bit of misdirection: The bill explicitly disavows the promotion of any particular set of religious beliefs. That directly contradicts the goal of its most ardent supporters, including the Louisiana Family Forum, which in and of itself should raise plenty of questions over just what was going on here.

Still, the obfuscation made it hard to argue the merits of the bill, and in the end, even many of the lawmakers who knew better threw up their hands and voted yes.

When asked about Darwinism, Jindal responds with his own fuzzy catch phrase, which he trotted out on the campaign trail last fall and again during a recent appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” He claims he wants students to be exposed to “the very best science.”

On the television show, he went further, arguing that he didn’t want facts and theories withheld from students out of “political correctness.” It was all part of a circular response to a direct question that he never answered: whether he himself has doubts about the theory of evolution.

Please click the little Digg icon and Digg this story up.  Stephanie Grace’s story needs national attention.
