Daily Blend: Saturday, April 24, 2010

Daily Blend

I went out to breakfast this morning, so I spent my time doodling away an anti-religious cartoon. Conclusion: I need to get out more. (Heh heh.)

  • Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (Rethuglican, of course) signs a Draconian anti-illegal immigrant law that enables cops to demand anyone they suspect of being in the US illegally to present identification papers, and even arrest them for “probable cause” of being an illegal immigrant. For an apt response, I direct you to Forever in Hell’s PersonalFailure’ evocative post on the subject.

  • A good write-up at the New York Times on The Daily Show’s constant hammering of the ever-dishonest Faux News.

  • Considering their relationship was deemed “consensual”, I choose to hold my judgment as to whether or not the kid was feeling coerced, or is now bragging about it to his friends.

  • After choosing Ben Stein for their commencement speech last year, Liberty University sets out to correct their mistake – by picking Glenn Beck for this year’s speech. Next year, the retar-demon child of Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Michele Bachmann. Because only then could they top themselves again.

  • Your brother serves you the wrong brand of beer. Do you: C) chuck a knife at him, watch him duck, then have the knife strike and seriously injure a 3-year-old girl in the head?

  • Leave some caricatured anti-religious posters at an airport, get slammed with an Anti-Social Behavior Order, six months in jail, 100 hours of community service and €250. Ah, the Nanny State of Britain, where religious beliefs come in a metaphorical box labeled “FRAGILE”.
