According to the Supreme Court’s decision in the Hobby Lobby case, discriminating against women isn’t discrimination. 

Again with this stupid argument.The one on the left fixes a medical condition.
The one on the right just stops you from getting pregnant (for a large majority of women who take it so please don’t hand me that “it makes your periods shorter” “it helps with hormones” or any other bullshit argument you’re going to make).

Our Butter variety is great for people who like to keep it simple.

Or you could buy a bag of popcorn and some olive oil and make it in a pot and avoid all the crap they put in this shit.
I’m sorry, but microwave popcorn is disgusting.  If I want butter on my popcorn, I put butter.  If Pop Secret wants butter on their microwave crap, they use “artificial flavors.”  The stuff in microwave popcorn is so toxic that plant workers can develop an affliction called “popcorn lung.”
If you want to eat that garbage, go right ahead.
But for me?  When I want to keep popcorn simple, I’ll make my own with kernels, olive oil, butter, and salt.

Idiots Bring Government Down on Homeowner, Then Yell “Power to the People!”

In Jamaica, NY, where population and car ownership has outstripped parking spaces, people do some shady things to make sure they have a place to park.  This is one of those situations.

After bringing the force of government on the homeowner, this practice was put to a stop…

It does look better, no doubt about it, but it just bugs me that someone is told what they can and can’t do with their property (again, I reference my post here).  Of course, all the people commenting on the story are overjoyed!  But one in particular caught my eye:

Excellent, power to the people! If we don’t fight for our communities we will lose them. 

Keep up the good work Jamaica.

How is this pitchfork and torch crap an example of “power to the people?”  People = individuals!  When you gang up to restrict the rights of another person, that’s not power to the people, that’s mob justice and it’s crappy behavior.

As expected, though, when it’s done in the name of a public good, the rights of an individual property owner mean nothing.  It’s disturbing how easily we sacrifice our rights to “keep our neighborhood nice” and other stupid crap.

Perfect Illustration of My Independence Day Thoughts

I caught some crap when I wrote my piece about not feeling very free or independent on Independence Day, but in that piece, I wrote that I didn’t feel very free and one of the reasons was how pervasive the taxing and such had become.  Well, guess what?  Another example has presented itself.

In this story you can read about people who live along the Hudson River who were given grants to cover the cost of soundproofing their homes while construction on our new bridge goes on.  As you learn from the story, though, people who took those grants are now getting 1099 forms because, surprise surprise, they have to pay taxes on the grants.

Even though the money never goes to the homeowner (it gets paid directly to the contractor who does the work), the reception of windows means that you are now liable for taxes due on the value of them.

If that doesn’t put every feeling I have about my hatred for government and the regular theft of people’s hard-earned income, I don’t know what does.  The article goes even further, pointing out there may be other implications if these windows and such have to be claimed as income including moving people with a large enough grant into a higher tax bracket.

How is this not totally insane?

Solis Illegally Fundraised For Obama Campaign

"Back in 2013, Texas resident Larry Davis ran either a red light or stop sign (reports vary) in his Buick in the city of Austin. Despite his insistence that he had had only one drink, he was put in handcuffs and arrested for driving while intoxicated. Then, when he was given a Breathalyzer test by the AustinPolice Department, he blew a 0.00. Nonetheless, as KVUE reports, Mr. Davis spent the night in jail."

If you’ve ever seen me get out of my truck after my 2 hour drive home from work, then you’ll understand how someone walks is not an indication of their sobriety.

Silly that he blew a 0.00 and was still arrested.

"Discussing AIDS as we do, as an equal opportunity offender lurking around every corner, dilutes the messaging and may actually hinder it. Whereas it’s clear where the attention needs to be spent, we’re almost trigger shy in putting it there, and that, to me, is simply indicative of a society at large that can’t seem to cope with “gay.”"

I was always 50/50 on whether to reblog this but the last comment pushed it to like 95/5 in favor.

On the minimum wage

fastcarsandliberty:

I have an employee that I hire between 10 and 30 hours a week based on need. I pay him $12/hr. If the minimum wage goes to $10.10 he will still get paid $12/hr. If it goes to $15 he won’t have a job.
