Internet comments

I made my usual mistake and started reading comments left on stories I've been reading on the Internet. Bad. It is pretty much impossible for me to understand just how tiny and mindless so many of these commenters must be. Of course I could very well be wrong. I was looking at a report on a possible postal strike in Canada. The majority of the comments were about how the postal workers are already over paid and under worked and how they, the commenters, have to work really really hard for every penny their mommies give them, I mean, at their jobs were they are self employed or something. It's kind of funny just how many self made "men" find the time to comment on online stories using utterly ironic user-names such as "Mr Canada" or "IDON'TLIKEDUMBPEOPLE". Quite clever.

The "best" stories for comments are those involving the police. Anything involving the RCMP or municipal police will draw the online tough guys like fresh poop draws flies. And so many of them have had their rights totally trampled by the police in this police state we live in where some poor innocent citizen is thwarted just because he wants to throw a garbage can through a window to protest globalization or something. Like, you know, like, what's that all about? Or maybe buddy decides to skateboard down the sidewalk and knock down old people and some fascist cop stops him. Now that is just unfair. Of course the police comments are generally the best for the mommies-boy commenter since every sparrow-fart who has ever got a speeding ticket has a hard-on about the police. I mean, WTF is all this enforcing the rules stuff anyway? Gosh.

The arguments used on the Internet are pretty difficult to refute though, I have to admit that. Once one of these mighty men posts a "you suck" the argument is pretty much over. Don't even go back there unless you want a devastating "idiot!!!!!!!!" thrown in your face, complete with a stack of exclamation marks. Whew, one sweats just thinking about it.

I think I'm going to leave the comment thing alone for awhile. One can see the quality that is there right now, and I sort of feel that if I give it time to grow a bit, mature if you will, then the comments can only become more insightful and wise with time.

But I doubt it.

When it comes to being hopelessly unaware it is hard to beat the houses of the holy. That crowd say and do things that would embarrass a chainsmoking dung-tucker, and still have the high opinion of themselves that only the totally oblivious can maintain. I was driving home the other week and I noticed the following sign in front of a local church:

Finally, I thought to myself, a church sign I can agree with! It would seem that this particular church and I both believe that churches are drains on society and it is high time that churches start paying land and income taxes. Honestly that is not an opinion that I ever expected to see coming from a church. Refreshing. Now if only the Catholic church would admit that molesting children was wrong.

Anyway, I stopped and took the picture, then when getting back into my vehicle I noticed the following sign outside another church across the road:

This was the day after Mothers Day so take a close look at the sign out front there. Is there any way for that sign to be more offensive? Nothing I can think of off-hand, but somehow I think that if the type of person who would put out something like this really put their mind to it, they could come up with something.

Rapture's comin' - git yer god on!

The word from the even crazier centers of relignicity is that Rapture is due to take place this coming Saturday. Rapture, for that portion of the paying public who can’t be bothered to pay attention to superstitious nonsense, is where the select will be yanked up by the currently popular god of the Christians to sit at the right hand of Jesus, watching TV and cracking wise.

Preacher Harold Camping out of Oakland in the great state of California figures that at about 6:00 PM (I assume Pacific Standard Time) on Saturday May 21, 2011, approximately 2% of the world’s population will be snatched off to everlasting glory while the rest of us will have to just have to stay here and make due. The description of who all will be taken is kind of vague (although I bet that humble Harry figures he will be going) but what all really means is that Camping is crazier than a wet cat in a plastic bag.

So, who is this Camping fellow? According to my sources he is an 89-year old former civil engineer who founded a religious broadcasting organization in the 1950s called Family Radio. Of course he tows the party line on evolution (he is against it) and he is anti-choice when it comes to abortion, but he is also known for forecasting the end of the world. Last time was on September 6, 1994 and he and hundreds of the dim and the dumb spent the day in an auditorium in Alameda, California waiting for Jesus to appear (because when Jesus comes back it will be to Alameda). As we all remember Jesus did not return on September 6, 1994, or any other time in 1994 or in any other year since, but did this discourage Harold? Like fun it did.

As Harold his batty old self said recently, “At that time there was a lot of the Bible I had not really researched very carefully. But now we’ve had the chance to do just an enormous amount of additional study and God has given us outstanding proofs that it really is going to happen.” So there you have it, the previous 50 years to 1994 were not enough time to figure it all out due to sloppy research and pages stuck together or something. He missed some important stuff so it was obviously an honest error but this time Harry and his happy crew have it right and no doubt about it. Saturday May 21, 2011 at 6:00PM PST is it! Mark your calendars.

And they are all going to look like royal nit-wits on Sunday May 22. Oh well, at least they are used to it.

Minnisota rep Steve Simon

First off, the following is a video of Minnesota state Representative Steve Simon speaking out on a plan by some religious people to try to get an anti-gay proposition on the 2012 ballot, making gay marriage illegal in Minnesota. If I lived in Minnesota this guy would have my vote forever based just on what he said here. This is a man who is able to think beyond his own religious brainwashing, and I completely respect that.

Secondly, what has caused more wars, pain and horror over the past millenia, religion or gays? I think it is time to ban religion.

Donald Trump is a moron

I give up. I understand that it makes sense to let the stupid and the ignorant spout off as much as possible to that everybody can see just how stupid and ignorant they are, but really, why does anybody pay any attention to this guy? He has all the magnificent intelligence of a lobotomized rock and all the elegant personal charm of a Hollywood pimp. This is what people want? Our friends to the south are so weird.
