You know what bothers me about our population? The sheer stupidity found in some of our members, and how proud they often are of their rudeness and idiocy. Take Mike Huckabee, for example. Fox News placed a temporary moratorium on talking about guns after the Newtown shooting, so what does Huckabee do? He took it upon himself to blame the massacre on "secularism," which to him apparently means iPads, abortion pills, and not hating the gays enough. Seriously.
Then we have Charlotte Allen, who seems to somehow believes physics should bend to her will as she proclaims that had their been men (or "huskier" 12 year old boys) present, they could have stopped the shooter's rampage, because in the words of one of my favorite comments of all times, "apparently testosterone is bulletproof." Allen was also brilliantly WRONG about there not being any men present, as one of the teachers and the custodian were men, and she was also wrong about the grades that attend the school.
Let's get to the news before I tear my hair out.
-- The longest running Occupy encampment has been granted a temporary restraining order against the city and county of Honolulu due to the deprivation of civil rights during raids. They've been protesting against the law in the city that allows for the brutalization of homeless people and theft of their belongings.
-- Danske Bank has apologized to Occupiers for co-opting their images for use in their commercials and for the role they played in the financial downfall. The bank was using the imagery of Occupy in advertisements declaring that they were changing for the better, upsetting many who felt they were attempting to belittle the movement.
-- Occupiers in Eugene have filed a lawsuit asking the courts to allow 24 hour demonstrations on federal property in order to call attention to the plight of the homeless population.
-- [Chuck] Lastly, here's a very honest quote from a very great comedian.
