Referring to my previous post on Ashley Judd and how can a conservative like Star Trek. This comment amongst many against her to me sums up too many conservatives. I liked her when she was a pretty face. When i found out she had a mind of her own, I was turned off. In the end, she’s just a baby-maker and nothing more. Disgusting!
Okay, at first blush, that might not seems surprising. After all, many were hopeful the well-known democrat would run for US senate.
What’s surprising to me personally is that this is posted on the Star Trek fan page in regards to her birthday. Star Trek? Star Trek? How did all these conservatives absolutely and completely miss the point of a show they apparently loved?
Gene Roddenberry imagined a future with no money, few wants and needs. Star Trek was a secular future where humanity had mostly gotten it together, had learned to live with one another.
Doesn’t seem like a conservative wet-dream does it?
Blake Fall-Conroy’s “Minimum Wage Machine” is a penny-dispensing Rube Goldberg machine that “allows anybody to work for minimum wage.”
Seriously, I can barely log into Facebook anymore. Prayers for every tragedy. What a fucking waste of time is all I can think. How can people seriously have faith in a deity that needs prayers to take action. Does the all-knowing-all-powerful-god take naps? Do we have to pray him awake to take action? Sorry, I can’t believe in your sky god. Even if there is a deity, it would have to be of the clock-work-universe variety. It clearly pays no part in the world or its prayers.
Horribly tragic, but it makes me doubt humanity in every way possible. As awful as their act was, read the comments that follow. Read the people demanding a public execution, read the ones asking to be the one who kills them. Read the awful racist comments about the accused (who are, let’s remember actually innocent until proved guilty beyond a shadow of a doubt). And it makes you wonder if we wouldn’t be better off being hit by the next passing asteroid…. What an all around crappy world…
And wow, mob mentality is just scary. I saw an article posted around noon where there were no suspects in custody and everyone was blaming the mother and suggesting she’d done it. Now let’s hang them in the town square.
Where’s the next asteroid to finish off the reputedly intelligent animals on this planet?
Repost because there are too many people who don’t understand how to tip.
If you can’t afford to tip, you can’t afford to eat out.
If you are going to not tip your server, tell them that before they start serving you. If you can’t do that, you don’t have the right to stiff them afterwards.
I have been a constant tipper, but I think I want to make it a goal to tip 2 dollars, regardless of cost of my meal, and 15-25% based on quality of service (unless 15 percent goes lower than 2 bucks.) People have bad days, and I don’t ask them or expect them to always act enthusiastic about serving me.
I wish we’d be civilized and tipping was truly for going above and beyond, i.e. that Servers were PAID for their work. Yes, the food would cost more, but it would be a price that reflected living wages! Instead it’s hidden in the tips and that’s insane.
Until that happens, realize that that’s someones paycheck you’re withholding when you don’t tip.
If you want to question whether Rosa Parks or any of the others who fought for equality accomplished much, read the litany of ugly comments on this photo of her statue being unveiled on the White House Page on Facebook.

I started to share the picture that just floated past me on Facebook in my news feed and add a note of outrage, but I refuse to share it forward because it’s had enough voice already. It was a pretty ugly meme about President Obama being visited by a string of past President’s ghosts. The last was Lincoln who advised him to go see a movie. And the people sharing this think it’s funny??? Or clever? I loathed Bush, absolutely despised what he did to our country, but I did not wish him to be assassinated.
There is a difference between being a patriot and being a pretty sick fucking racist, people. And another friend just got removed. I can tolerate divergent thought up to a point but when you think it’s chuckles to suggest offing someone you disagree with, then we’re done.
