No, Charlie ain’t getting paroled. Sheeeeesh.

So I saw this headline on The Globe, a fine newspaper with more journalistic standards than the C.S. Gazette but that doesn’t say much. We’re expected to get our knickers in a knot because, just like every third year for a while now, Charles Manson is going to have a parole hearing. So is Mark David Chapman, the man who shot John Lennon AND … John Hinckley Jr. lone wolf gunman with ties to the Bush family.
Hinckley, almost 31 years ago, was found not guilty by reason of insanity for four counts of Aggravated Assault. Didn’t kill anybody. So he’s in a Psychiatric Prison with no set release date ever. No sentence, they can keep him until his rotting corpse falls apart as far as the courts are concerned. Chapman and Manson ain’t getting out either.
Having a parole hearing doesn’t mean you get parole, it’s just a formality in many many cases. But makes for some spectacular fear-mongering, don’t it? Manson was scheduled for a hearing at the time Geraldo Rivera aka Horrendo Revolver (from Cheech & Chong “Wedding Album” song “Black Lassie”) interviewed him.

Horrendo Revolver asked him this really Stoopit question “What does it feel like to kill a man?” (According to witnesses, Charlie never pulled the trigger on anybody) And Charlie gets all up in Horrendo’s grill and wild eyed as only he can do (I can do a close approximation but, hey, Charlie is The Past Master at it) saying “You want me to kill YOU? I’ve got friends in New York who’ll send me your head in a paper bag if I ask, you want me to kill you?”
I was a guest of the County at the time and everybody in the day-room was shakin’ his head and saying “Charlie, Charlie, Charlie…. You really don’t WANT that parole, do you?” To nobody’s surprise Charlie wasn’t paroled. Nor were his co-defendants three of whom are Jailhouse Preachers who have successful prison ministries… from within their prison cells cause on account of They Ain’t Ever Gettin’ Out Either. Charles “Tex” Watson, for instance, author of a “How I Found God in Jail” chaplain book.

Nice try on the fearmongering, though. It will accomplish its purpose, to get enough citizens frightened enough that they’ll petition their Election Year representatives to crack down on anybody accused of any crime ever. Nothing like a good old fashioned crackdown to get the votes of Really Stupid People.

Two years ago they said the dude was murdered

To silence him, of course. Now the Murdoch-owned (maybe just affiliated) tabloid The Globe reports that “Obama’s gay lover tries to commit suicide”.
Call the Pope! it’s a Miracle! Man dead for two years tries to commit suicide!
Other headlines in this bizarre series, “Oprah Gay!” “Obama has affair with Oprah!”
“Michelle has affair with Oprah!”
“Michelle tells Oprah: Stay away from MY man!”

So, which is it, is he gay, his wife and Oprah also gay, are they straight, or what?
Why don’t they come out against his expansion of the Afghan and Iraqi and Libyan and Pakistan and insert_Target_Nation_Here war, or perhaps get on his case about repeatedly doing exactly what their bosses tell him to do, cave on Health Care, Cave on taxes, Cave on this Cave on that.
Dude has so many caves he ought to change his name to Carlsbad.
But they want to portray him to their Demented TeaBag Loser Shock-troops as being an unstoppable dictator, Antichrist, who they have to stop.

Gender Respect in Tabloids & Wrestling

So I figured a way to tie a few concepts into one on the subject of two headlines on Gossip Tabloids in the supermarket check-out lane. National Enquirer headline “Roy, of Siegfried and Roy caught on video soliciting GAY sex!” My out-loud reaction was “Oh My GOD! Siegfried and Roy are GAY? I haven’t been this disillusioned since I found out Pro Wrestling was Fixed!” The Enquirer and every other “news” pooper similar thereto, you see, have been publicizing the non-secret that they have a love-love thing going on. So what would be a more Man-bites-dog type of real shocker headline would be if Roy had solicited sex from a woman. I mean, they’ve been so far out of the closet that I doubt they could find the closet or maybe don’t even have one.

The next one is from a paper owned by a Far Right person who has an avowed hatred of Liberals, meaning everybody to the Left of Vlad the Impaler. “Obama dumps Oprah”, which shows their basic confusion.

Because they’ve been publishing crap like Obama GAY, Oprah GAY, Oprah having a marriage with TWO Gay Women and so forth and so on. They’re still pissed off that they couldn’t successfully sue her for Libel when she had a guest on her show who dared to mention the Dreaded Anti-Meat Industry “myth” about Mad Cow disease. How DARE those liberals have Free Speech! Don’t they know that Ronald McDonald fought and DIED for their Freedom? What a Ray Kroc of shit.

So which is it, is Obama GAY, is Oprah GAY, are either of them GAY, how did they find time to explore the Hetero side of life, when, where, who? They’re serving up a line of crap that’s been slurped down and more requested from people who have no IDEA of what it would feel like to actually think for themselves for a change.

All they have to do is mention the GAY word and the morons who buy into it will say “Obama teletubby. Teletubby GAY… All Obama Secret-Muslim Gay Liberal… think too hard, head hurt, must watch Fox… beeep beeep beeep”

Homophobes like the ones who watch Pro-Wrestling, enjoy seeing two large men simulating Man-Rape on each other and think it’s REAL. And also will strongly deny that it has any Homoerotic pornography working.

In other words, people who are easily confused.

They probably don’t have any idea that the entire mess is filled with contradiction.

“Gender Identity, what’s THAT? Gender Respect, say, isn’t that some of that P.C. crap Glenn Beck warned us not to listen to? PC GAY… PC Spongebob… must not think, think hurt head too much, must watch Fox beep beep beeeeeeeeeeep!
