Thanks, Bill, For Clearing That Up

November 29, 2012 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

The first shot has been fired in the war on Christmas.  Bill O’Reilly became Bill O’Really? yesterday by proclaiming that Christianity is not a religion – it is a philosophy.


And that facistatheist is one word.


“It is a fact that Christianity is not a religion, it is a philosophy,” the Fox News host declared confidently. “If the government was saying that the Methodist religion deserves a special place in the public square, I would be on your side.”

Silverman said he would be just as upset if a public figure promoted atheism.

“Jesus Christ,” O’Reilly said, then apologized. He added that Christmas trees had nothing to do with Christianity and were a secular symbol.

Isn’t there something about taking the Lord’s name in vain in the Bible book?

And then there’s the judge not stuff.

O’Reilly said Silverman’s views were “insane” and that he should get his “merry band of fascists” together to “re-vote” on Christmas being a federal holiday. After Silverman objected to being called a fascist, O’Reilly again reiterated the point by saying he was a fascist because he wanted to banish Christmas.

And if Christianity is a philosophy, not a religion, then we can tax it.  Right?

I’m cool with that.

Thanks to Brian for the heads up.

The Daily Louie

November 29, 2012 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

You know, some days the only reason I get out of bed is to see what damfool thing Louie Gohmert is going to say today.

He never lets me down.


He is an unending spigot of bullcorn and cornpone.

How about this one.  Louie went on the battery operated radio and got to yapping about how the Obama administration is gonna make us all Muslim terrorists.  I do believe that The Onion transcribed it and issued it as their regular satire.

I think it almost makes a prima facie case when you look at the decisions made by this administration over the last couple of years, or actually all four years. You look at the decisions it made especially in the last two years in going through the revolutions in Northern Africa and across the Middle East and to the Far East, and the only way you can explain the horrendous decisions that were so completely wrongheaded would be if this administration had a bunch of Muslim Brotherhood members giving them advice.

Hey, Louie, at least it’s the Brotherhood.  Think of the crap coming down if it was the Sisterhood.

Thanks to Kathleen for the heads up.

Do a Nice Thing

One of my favorite local Democrats, Tony, asked me to lend a helping hand and I am indeed honored to do so.

The Waltrip High School Band in Houston – in an area of Houston that votes heavily Democratic – has been invited to march at the inauguration of President Barack Obama.  Nora is one of Tony’s staff at work.  Tony write that Nora’s son is in the Waltrip band, and adds, “Nora is the single mother of three boys, an Air Force veteran, and one of my star employees.”

So, pitch in five or ten bucks to give a kid a memory they will never forget.  Click here, and smile the rest of the day.

Thanks to Tony and Nora for helping kids who need a hand up.

Here’s What I Think

You know how the Republicans are opposing Susan Rice because they want to force President Obama into appointing John Kerry so they can elect Scott Brown back to the senate in a special election, giving Republicans an extra new seat in the senate?

Here’s what I think. I think President Obama ought to say, “Fine. I appoint Bill Clinton to be secretary of state.”

Call their bluff, Mr. President. I would pay cash American money to see Bill Clinton wipe the floor with Mitch McConnell. I would.

Because Marriage is Sacred and All That …

November 28, 2012 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Republican Congressvarmint Jon Kyl (God Bless Him, Arizona) has an immigration DREAM Act all his own.

Realistically, young people frequently get married. In this country, the biggest marriage pool are U.S. citizens. A U.S. citizen can petition for a spouse to become a citizen in a very short time…so I don’t think it’s any big secret that a lot of people who might participate in this program are going to have a very quick path to citizenship, if that’s the path they choose.

So, Kyl’s idea of a DREAM Act is not to finish college and apply for citizenship, but to grow up and marry a citizen, because the last damn thing this country needs is a bunch of educated Mexicans.

However, marriage is an economy booster.  Let’s see … wedding chapel, bridesmaid dresses, hairdressers, photographers, honeymoon travel, divorce lawyer ….

Thanks to Deb for the heads up.

Hush Now, It’s Not THAT Bad

The women at the beauty salon this morning are all in a tither upon discovering that the Republicans in the House have insured that every single House committee is headed by a white male.

They say that show a lack of diversity.

That is simply not true.

It most certainly is diverse.  There is a tall white male, a short white male, a bald white male, a dumb white male, a chubby white male, a practically deaf white male, Paul Ryan, a really old white male … I mean, what do you people want?
