Good On Her

August 30, 2013 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

She’s a damn fine woman.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will become the first Supreme Court member to conduct a same-sex marriage ceremony Saturday when she officiates at the Washington wedding of Kennedy Center President Michael M. Kaiser.

The gala wedding of Kaiser and economist John Roberts at the performing arts center brings together the nation’s highest court and the capital’s high society and will mark a new milepost in recognition of same-sex unions.

And of note:

It is not uncommon for Supreme Court justices to officiate at weddings, most often for former law clerks or close friends or relatives. Ginsburg tied the knot for her son, for instance. Justice Clarence Thomas performed a ceremony for radio host Rush Limbaugh.

Yes, that majestic monument to family values and the sanctity of marriage, Rush Limbaugh.  To be honest, Thomas and Limbaugh are the perfect match.

Ginsberg got the classier gig.

Fun With Guns: Bicycle Perjury Edition

From Connecticut (this stuff is spreading).

A Connecticut man, who accidentally shot himself while riding a bicycle, was arrested this week after lying to police and saying that a “gang” of men wearing black hoodies had attacked him.

Yeah, like a whole gang of them.  I couldn’t be taken down by just one because I’m a macho man – not the kind of wimp who accidentally shoots himself.

But Docteur finally admitted that the gun in his waistband had gone off and he had shot himself after he was not able to explain why there was only a hole where the bullet exited from his pants. He was also not able to tell police what happened to his handgun after the incident.

Did they look in his pants?

I know, I honestly forget that my gun is loaded and in my hand sometimes.

In her defense, she IS blonde.  And she’s married to Ted Nugent.  And she was in Dallas.  And it’s really hot in Texas right now.  And did I mention she’s married to Ted Nugent?

Thanks to Brian and David for the heads up.

Oh Cathey, This Just Ain’t Your Week at the Beauty Salon

Yesterday I told you about Cathey Engelbrecht’s True the Vote organization falsifying signatures in order to put poll watchers at African American polls.  And the best part?  They got caught.

Well, one of our customers got to nosing around and found something that slipped around us in June.  It seems that Miss Cathey of the Golden Ripoff was whining about being audited by the IRS because her organization is so conservative.

Now Cathey Honey, lookie here and Miss Juanita of the Superhold Hairspray will try to explain this to you in a manner that you can understand.   Here’s the cake.  You can look at the pretty cake or you can eat it, but after you eat it you can’t look at it.

Likewise, you can be a tax exempt non-partisan organization and not pay taxes.  OR, you can be a conservative activist group.  You can’t be both at the same time.  This isn’t one of those “just a little bit” things either.  Either you’re pregnant or you’re not.

So, when you took your non-partisan little group and got involved in the Scott Walker recall, you not only ate that cake, but you also had frosting all over your mouth.

And then you whined about having OSHA make “an unscheduled” visit to the machine shop you and your hubby own.  Cathey, Cathey, Cathey, all of OSHA’s visits are unscheduled.  That’s the purpose of their visits.  In fact, it is freekin’ illegal for them to let you know ahead of time.

Next she claimed they got fined $25,000 for “minor” things.  Which was so unfair and she was being so picked on and oh dear God, what a victim of governmental meanness she is.

Well, come to find out, Cathey wasn’t exactly telling the truth.  And let’s face it, she’s had a lot of practice at that.  There were nine violations ranked as “serious.”

… the business was cited for obstructions in aisles, neglect in labeling non-exit doorways that could be mistaken for exits, failure to make sure the forklift operators wore seatbelts, not providing employees operating a metal grinder with protective eyewear, allowing an employee to operate a forklift without proper training and certification, failure to install guards on rotating grinders and band saws, failure to anchor a milling machine to the floor, creating an electrical hazard by plugging heavy machinery and other electrical devices into portable power strips instead of fixed wiring, and failure to label numerous hazardous chemicals.

Cathey ain’t real fond of the working men and women of America.   She doesn’t care much about their safety and she sure as hell doesn’t care about their right to vote.

If she’s gonna run with the big dogs, she better be prepared to get out from under the porch.

Thanks to Al for the heads up and John for the graphic.

Fun With Guns: Go Stand In The Corner Edition

Arkansas Sen. Jeremy Hutchinson, a Republican, favors arming teachers to protect schools.  And probably teachers, too, except that part’s not real clear.

Arkansas Sen. Jeremy Hutchinson (R) recently participated in “active shooter” training and mistakenly shot a teacher who was confronting a so-called bad guy. The experience gave Hutchinson “some pause” but failed to shake his confidence in the plan.

“The ideal would be to have a trained resource officer in every school,” Hutchinson told the paper. “The state and school districts can’t afford that.”

But, hell, we can afford to shoot a few teachers.  Teacher are like, what, a dime a dozen or something?

Now this is not the first time the good State Senator has had embarrassing moments.  There was the time his wife whacked him in the head with a “small preserved alligator head” when she found out he had a girlfriend he was paying out of his campaign account.  She got charged with domestic battery, which doesn’t seem right because alligator head whacking isn’t even illegal in most states.  Plus, she could have just said that she didn’t know it was loaded when she whacked.

Hutchinson says he was teaching his girlfriend proper English, like the difference between “seen” and “saw”, which, of course, is a high level of literacy in Arkansas.

The girlfriend’s sister sides with Hutchinson.

McGee said Hutchinson gave her the money to live on because she was unemployed, aside from a job on his campaign staff that she said was a sham.

McGee said her sister hates her and is “on his side.”

“The last time I saw her I beat her up really bad,” she said.

This is just my opinion, but I’m willing to bet that is most certainly the last time you saw her.

So now he’s lost his wife and he and his girlfriend are on the outs, so all he’s got left is teacher-shooting.

Let this be a cautionary tale:  if an Republican Arkansas state senator comes near you, run like you’re being chased by an alligator head.

I cannot make this stuff up.

Thanks to Carl for the heads up.
