AFA Upset that McDonald’s Sponors SF Pride July 29, 2008Posted by truthspew in AFA, Gay Pride, Gay rights, objectionable material, prudes, puritanical, religion, secular society, stupidity.
Oh this is great. The AFA has their nads in a lather again. This time its over McDonald’s being a sponsor in the San Francisco Gay Pride parade and festival.
McDonald’s sponsors gay pride parade
McDonald’s says they “stand by and support our people to live and work in a society free of discrimination and harassment,” here is what they ! won’t tell you. McDonald’s helped sponsor the San Francisco Gay Pride Parade. Want to see what McDonald’s considers worthy of support? Click here. (Warning: These photos are extremely offensive and graphic.)
AFA asked McDonald’s to remain neutral in the culture war. The company refused, stating they will continue to support the gay agenda including same-sex marriage. AFA has called for a boycott of McDonald’s restaurants.
McDonald’s spokesman Bill Whitman told the Washington Post that those (even Christians) who oppose homosexual marriage are motivated by hate, saying that “… hatred has no place in our culture.”
This boycott is not about hiring homosexuals or how homosexual employees are treated. It is about McDonald’s choosing to put the full resources of their corporation behind promoting the homosexual agenda.
To help promote the gay agenda, McDonald’s paid $20,000 to become an official “organizational ally and corporate partner” of the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce and secure a seat on the group’s board of directors. The NGLCC lobbies against laws protecting marriage as between a man and a woman.
Get ready for the link to the images they find so shocking. First of all, in only one picture do I see a gent with it all hanging out. The rest of the pix have genitalia covered. It’s just they object to showing so much skin I suppose.
They even put up this warning:
WARNING: The images below contain male full-frontal nudity. Please be aware and exercise caution before viewing these images. If you are under 18, please leave this page!
Ok, you’ve been warned. Prepare to be scandalized.
Note that at the very bottom of the pix is one of a little girl with a balloon and the caption reads “And, sadly, yes. This little girl was exposed to everything you see above. Thanks, McDonald’s.”
Yes, thank you McDonald’s for not caving in to the demands of a bunch of religious fuckwits. Because that is precisely what the people at the AFA are, they are the people who would like to force their religious world view on the rest of us.
Christianity has had a roughly two millennium chance to get things right and they’ve failed miserably at the task. It is time for us to move past the religious bullshit and embrace a concept called personal responsibility.
Move toward spirituality and that spirit tells you to love one another, not start angry pogroms because a man has sex with a man, or a woman with a woman, or even a man with a woman. You’d be surprised, some of the more mentally unbalanced in the AFA think that even straight people shouldn’t have sex, or at least not sex that they’ve put the AFA stamp of approval upon.
I think we still need Gay Pride (Yes, I know, LGBTQ….) because every day we’re surrounded by straight pride, including the asinine blabbering of the people at the AFA. We see PDA’s, we see it in the majority of literature, television, movies, etc.
And then there is the homophobic attitude of the AFA. I guarantee you there’s more than one closeted homo in that organization. Look at the track record of others who were vociferously anti-gay. I’ll use Ted Haggard as an example. Yep, don’t piss off a gay hustler is the only advice I could give to Teddy Boy. Look at the most homophobic congressmen who’ve been caught with pants down and worshiping at the altar of the cock.
We’re EVERYWHERE. And we need to make it clear that we won’t take second class citizenship. And this gay man will not stand for it any longer. I’m politically active too.

1. What is your language pet peeve. (example ‘hot water heater’, why would you heat hot water)
Hmmm, when people pronounce nuclear as nucular. Get it right asswipes.
2. What is your favorite word? Both dirty and clean?
My favorite dirty word, has to be ‘fuck’. For the clean word, “justice”.
3. What is the one word you cannot spell?
I always get confused on desert vs. dessert. As far as spelling goes, that’s what spell check is for though I’ve noticed that many terms aren’t in the dictionary.
4. What is the one word you always pronounce wrong?
Being of Italian ancestry and being a life long resident of Rhode Island you’d probably say all of them. But here’s a little secret, I can turn the RI accent on and off at will. That said, I’m not aware of any that I mispronounce.
5. If you could erase one popular catchphrase from the english language, what would it be?
Project Management. Seriously, I hate that term with a passion since I feel it should be organic to anything.
Bonus (as in optional): The late, and very hot Michael Hutchence (INXS) once sang, “Words are weapons, sharper than knives” . What is the most hurtful thing you have ever said to anyone? Was it deliberate or accidental? What was the most hurtful thing ever said to you? Do you think it was deliberate or accidental?
There’s only been one time in my life where I’ve ripped someone a new one and actually caused such serious offense that she felt it necessary to report it to my father. My father to his credit backed me up. Even then he knew my tolerance level was pretty high and that to get me to unload like that you had to piss me off pretty badly.
I don’t remember what she said to me but it was at that point I just snapped and called her a dirty fucking whore. You have to understand this woman loved cops, often times you’d see the paddy wagon rocking. She’d fuck pretty much any cop.
There were some other words in there but the dirty fucking whore thing sticks in my memory. I really went off on her.
And in this particular case, it was absolutely deliberate.
All in all this was a pretty lame TMI.

Good article on ABC News site titled “When Sex Is Not as Private as You Expect“
The following paragraph appears in the article and I take strong issue with it.
But the 11th Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals ruled on Jan. 31, 2001 that communities have a “legitimate legislative interest in discouraging prurient interests in autonomous sex” — masturbation, in other words — because that may be “detrimental to the health and morality of the State.” After numerous appeals affirming the inital ruling, the case was finally settled when the Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal last October.
Who were the fucking justices who said the state has control over a persons body? I know about the suicide thing but seriously, tossing a load out is the governments concern according to the 11th Circuit? You mean to tell me none of the GUYS on that panel never let one fly? Come on, this is ridiculous on so many levels.
I also find it interesting the the United States Supreme Court has declined to issue a writ of certiorari. Maybe they have skeletons in their closets too.
I’m so glad I live in a place where the state only sees dollar signs. Therefore we have adult stores, back rooms, glory holes, sex clubs, strip clubs for ALL, that’s right both gay and straight. And there’s even a loophole in the prostitution law here that says so long as it’s done indoors, the state has no power over it. I think the reason our legislature consistently fails to close this loophole is because there are several members who have probably at one time or another used said services of a prostitute and they don’t want a pissed off prostitute telling their business.
If you want to get your freak on, Providence is definitely the place to do so.
And our adult stores can sell all manner of toys to those 18 and over without having to resort to ridiculous surveys. But then it’s Alabama, what should I have expected. It’s strange, I’ve met some charming people form that state. That they’re here in Rhode Island says it all. Even they couldn’t tolerate the insanity.

This is a priceless mashup. But then who needs to do mashups when McCain can’t seem to remember what he might have eaten five minutes before an interview, let alone a week ago or even years ago.
His mind is McMush if you ask me. And he’s a champion flip-flopper. The accusations and mud slinging against the Obama campaign are amusing. And I hope that Obama attacks McSame soon enough.

I’m focusing more on the English speaking countries here so Britain and Australia bubble to the top of the list.
Here’s some of my favorites:
1) New Tricks – A funny cop drama where old coots are brought back to solve cold cases.
2) Life on Mars – A Detective Chief Inspector is hit by a car, is he in a coma or has he really been transported back to 1973?
3) The IT Crowd – Don’t worry, it’s not a lot of tech jargon. It is gut busting funny though. Supposedly a U.S. version is in the works but I’m not so sure it’d work.
4) Torchwood – The spinoff from Dr. Who. Now I’ll be the first to admit that I never watched the original Dr. Who. It just left me cold, I was much more a space sci-fi nut, still am. But Torchwood is very interesting.
5) The Librarians – This is an Australian Broadcasting Company production about a totally dysfunctional library staff headed by a neurotic. Having worked with library and archives folks I have to say the humor in this one is top shelf.
So there we have it, some very good stuff that isn’t on U.S. television. Fortunately if you follow the links it’s all online now.

Drunk! July 22, 2008Posted by truthspew in Uncategorized.
Wow, I feel like I’ve drunk a pan galactic gargle blaster (Obligatory HHGTTG reference). But in my case it was lots of good wine, started off with some Rieslings which I absolutely love, then some red wine of a 1999 vintage that was very smooth. But right now I’m blasted out of my mind.
It’s Tuesday for crying out loud. Today I’ve had two beers and a little over a bottle of wine to myself. I can tell you it’s very hard to write this though. But it was worth it. Hopefully I didn’t completely screw this up.
In any case I’m feeling pretty damned good. But I know there might be some suffering in the morning so I’m drinking a few things of water and taking aspirin.
