Denizens, I have another homework assignment for you:  This post, authored by the host of Krissy’s Absurdity, is a classic.

Krissy?  Bra.  Freakin’.  Vo.

You.  ROCK.

Gang, I’m not even sure where to start with this one. RCOB may be a good place….but even THAT doesn’t really come close to describing how entirely peeved I am.

Explosive. Nope, not close either.

Nuclear meltdown. Nope, but getting closer.

Let’s just say I have the ENTIRE base ready to bust outta the gates and deliver some good ol’ fashioned AMERICAN justice to some real PINHEADS over at (P)MSNBupChuck after reading about this over at The Blaze.

MSNBC is not known as a network that sympathizes with the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan, but this Memorial Day weekend, rather than put aside their political differences to salute our men and women in uniform, a panel on Chris Hayes’ show instead engaged in a debate over how to refer to our fallen soldiers.

Specifically, the panel debated over using words like “hero” because– in their words– the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan aren’t “worthy” causes.

Aw, come on! Is that all you got?! >

The annual Memorial Day post is below the fold, as opposed to posting the link to the article in the Backyard™.

Also check out Denizen & fellow blogger Alan K. Henderson’s Memorial Day post here.

If you’re a veteran – either of a war long past or of one more recently waged – know that I and about 300,000,000 Americans are eternally in your debt.  Mere words cannot express the degree of gratitude which we possess for what you have done – and are now doing – for us here at home.  Therefore, two words alone will have to suffice:

Thank you.

Aw, come on! Is that all you got?! >

Over the years, a number of my friends have taken time on Memorial day to thank my wife and me for our military service. We always respond with thanks of our own, but the truth is, this day is not about remembering those who have served and are still with us. This day is about remembering those who took the oath to protect and defend the our Nation’s Constitution, and lost their lives in that service.

I ask that today you remember in your prayers the families and friends of those Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, Coastguards, and Peace Officers who gave their lives that we might remain free. I also ask that you continue to pray for the safety of those who remain in harms way.

Denizens, your homework assignment for the weekend is to read this treatise by Zilla of the Resistance.  (It’s a long read, which is why you have all weekend.)  Additional information can also be obtained here and here.

(Yes, that last one is a link to Malicious Malkin’s column, but there’s a reason for it.  Don’t get ahead of me, mkay?)

Today is “Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day” in the Blogosphere.  This chickenshit needs to be put down like the rabid dog he is, and together we can all play a part in doing so.

Oh, and Kimberlin?  Fuck you, you pussified douchetard.  Try coming after me or mine, and I’ll see to it you don’t go after anyone else.

Bank on that, chickenshit.

On this day in 1932 Eunice Ellen Louise Wunderlich Hartung entered the world. After serving her Lord in various vocations, including nurse, wife, mother, grand mother and even great grandmother, she was called to the church triumphant last July 12.

Mom, We miss you, but at the same time we celebrate the life you led, and the training in living life that you gave us.

Question for you, Denizens:  Ever passed a cop running a speed trap & flashed your headlights afterwards to warn oncoming drivers?

Ever get a ticket for it?

Well, now you might actually have a case.

A judge in Sanford ruled Tuesday that a Lake Mary man was lawfully exercising his First Amendment rights when he flashed his headlights to warn neighbors that a deputy had set up a speed trap nearby.

That decision is another victory for Ryan Kintner, 25, who sued theSeminole County Sheriff’s Officelast year, accusing it of misconstruing a state law and violating his civil rights, principally his right to free speech.

He was ticketed Aug. 10 by a Seminole County deputy, but Kintner alleges the officer misapplied a state law designed to ban motorists from flashing after-market emergency lights.

Circuit Judge Alan Dickey earlier ruled that that state law does not apply to people who did what Kintner did, use his headlights to communicate.

On Tuesday the judge went a step further, saying people who flash their headlights to communicate are engaging in behavior protected by the U.S. Constitution.

Now, I expect this to go all the way to the Soprano Supreme Court, so this’ll be something to keep an eye on.

In the meantime, flash your headlights to yer heart’s content.

Those of you who have read me for any  length of time – well, you probably knew it was coming all along, didn’t you? – but you know damned well what this is.

For now, click the link.  Go ahead.  Click it.  I effin’ dare  you.

And turn it up.  Waaaaaay  up.    )

That’s right, sportz fanz:  It’s vacation time for His Rudeness™.  A chance to Get Away From It All™ for the next 10 days or so.

Thanks to Bambi & his shitty economy, though, Mrs. Venomous & I are staying in town and not doing a helluva lot, due to the money just not being there.

MRS. VENOMOUS:  Ohhhhhh, don’t worry, sweetie.  We’ll find plenty  of things to do. (wink)

VENOMOUS

Vicar, General – you guys have the conn.  General…when you’re done chlorinating the gene pool of Occutards down there in the Southern Command™, could I borrow another squadron of those black helicopters…?

Folks, A couple of weeks ago my brother Richard went to the Emergency Room with chest pains. It turns out that his ticker was just fine, but he had a 4 cm tumor on his pancreas. This past Tuesday the tumor was removed along with another one of his lymph glands. The pathological report showed the tumor to be malignant, and today he was told that the cancer is stage three.

 

While this is serious, it is by no means hopeless. What he has going for him is that it was found at an earlier stage than most pancreatic cancers. Once he heals from the Surgery, Richard will begin chemo and radiation treatment and we will see what happens. The raw truth is that only about 20% of pancreatic cancer patients survive past five years. Pleas keep my brother and his family in your prayers.

Yahoo & TMZ have reported that disco queen Donna Summer has passed of cancer at the age of 63.

More later.

The comic strips Funky Winkerbean  and Crankshaft  are written (or, in the case of Crankshaft, partially written) by a shit-for-brains named Tom Batiuk (rhymes with “attic”).  His strips run in dozens (if not hundreds) of birdcage liners newspapers across the country…on comics pages which are very easily accessible to kids 3 years & up.

The last couple of weeks, this jackwagon Batiuk has been writing a storyline in Winkerbean  where two heterophobic boys plan to go to a prom together.  Naturally, Batiuk the douchetard is ridiculing those who would object and portraying them in the worst possible light:

Today, in a school assembly, Batiuk the pissweasel reveals his take on what he calls “intolerance” – which, not surprisingly, is the exact same as the rest of the heterophobe/Demoscum community:

Unless, of course, you rightly oppose homosexuality, and having it taught to/practiced by impressionable kids, who see it condoned in society (where only 30 short years ago it was rightly decried and treated as the perversion it is) and want to try it themselves.

In which case, they practice their intolerance towards you.

And the print media industry, which will happily accept this bullshit from Batiuk the heterophobe and run it in their comics pages, will then wring its collective hands in extreme angst and wonder why their many subscriber bases are steadily dwindling away, their readers having long ago decided that they were increasingly tired of being preached to and paying good money to have values they didn’t share shoved down their throats by a group of liberal assclowns.

It’s leftist pussies like you, Tommi Batiuk, that are slowly killing the newspaper industry.  And when we stop giving you our hard-earned money, you bitch at us for being “intolerant”.

ESAD, widdle Tommi.  I imagine you’ve lost a goodly portion of your readers the last couple of weeks.

“F.E.T.E.”, as the Imperial Torturer would be wont to say.
