Tennessee Fire-Non-Fighters and the Bible

The language used by the fire-non-fighter is heavily ingrained indoctrination. There's a movement with some familiar names on the letterheads, spokesfreaks not leaders, Beck, Hannity, O'Reilly, Malkin... people whose ambitions are to create an American Sha'ariah based on their own interpretation of the Word. Or more importantly how the words of the Word get translated into English. They believe that somehow King James was a Liberal. Rather than the really vicious killer he was, and point to speculations on his sexuality, which really doesn't make three quarters of a fat rats ass. The dude was a killer, that trumps any other social or moral consideration you could think of. But the contention is that the Shakespearian English, and they toss in the "Shakespeare was queer, you know" wink wink nudge nudge low-flying canard as evidence, used in the KJV 1611 was "effeminate". Oh, he's a lumberjack, he's okay. (so gay?) And they're actually Re-Writing the Bible to reflect what they think it should be. Nothing new there. Even by their own admission. Many of them cite the "Thou shalt not Kill" commandment, saying that "They" meaning, not the person speaking who is as ignorant of who "They"

And I thought it couldn’t possibly get worse.

I thought for a long time that some of Shakespeares classic works, those of which are so tragic in scope that it's worse than dating a Goth on downers, couldn't possibly be given the Disney Treatment. Then, they popped off with "Gnomeo and Juliet". If there's any small mercy to be had there, it's that somebody sobered up enough to refrain from making it "Julielf". But then, they've given the Disney Treatment to such wonderful objects of literature as Grimms' Fairy Tales and anything by Hans Christian Andersen. "The Little Mermaid" they even made a sequel to it. HOW? In the book, Ariel's prince charming got killed in a war and she couldn't go around anywhere on land because (like all good fairy-tale spells) her enchantment that changed her fins to feet didn't go far enough, and it hurt to walk. So she sits on a rock in Copenhagen harbor looking out to the sea to which she can never return, and the land that causes her excruciating pain, then she dies the end. 19941

Hooters in time honored fashion

COLORADO SPRINGS- At the Ritz Bar and Grill on Tejon St. downtown, waitresses have to bend over the counter to convey drink orders to the bartenders. There's a raised platform to assist them in their short skirts. If the show outside is too tame for you. 5002

Uh, t’be or not t’be well spoken enough

Barack Obama does it. So does Sarah Palin. On the national stage before millions of TV viewers. I think it's time t'make it official. The word "to" has become an apostrophe'd "tuh." Americans should have t'spell it that way if we're going t'let our most prominent panderers put it forth in speeches for our schoolchildren t'emulate. Murcan, as some linguists call it, differentiates itself from British English by adapting common usage, taking the shtreet most traveled, basically. Americans consider it a shtrength t'be unshod mustangs, uh, mavericks. 4614
