Gillian Anderson is dead to me

gillian anderson is an idiot

I wasn't going to post stuff today, but this just put me over the top:

PETA put out an ad starring Gillian Anderson based on the scene from the book (and crappy movie) Hannibal, where Anderson sits at a table looking drowsy and drugged out. As the camera pans back you see what looks like a leg carved up on the table for a feast. She purrs for the camera that eating meat " a matter of taste" and then the camera pans downward and you see that her own leg has been amputated. Violá, she's dining on her own leg.

Give me a f*cking break! Eating turkey is the same as carving up your neighbor according to these wackos. Because, you know, all the amazing things turkeys have done throughout history -- polio vaccine, heart surgery, saving those minors trapped in the cave-in . . . the list goes on and on showing turkey's contribution to society's survival and evolution.

We were put on this planet and given dominion over the land and the creatures upon it. They are our food. Period. Don't be cruel. Don't destroy the environment where you have to live. But I'm eating that turkey. And that pig. And that cow. And those eggs. And get off my f*cking back with your sanctimonious bullsh*t!


Genesis 1:26
Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, and after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth."

aside:  Nice rack on Gillian there. Someone get a boob job recently?

Happy Thanksgiving!

happy thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to my handful of loyal readers.

One day a year when we can enjoy guiltless caloric consumption and lazing on the couch watching football. So enjoy it.

Eschew the pathetic attempts to turn this into a day of political discussion and remember why we celebrate this day. Be thankful for what you have in this life -- your family, food to eat, and a roof over your head. A lot of people don't, so remember the good fortune of your life and use this day to appreciate it all.

Take care my friends.

Maitland Ward won't be helping me in the kitchen tomorrow

Which is regrettable because I'm kind of digging her cooking ensemble here:

But then I doubt I'd be properly focused on preparing my Thanksgiving meal if I had someone dressed like that helping me in the kitchen.

Still . . . if you're gonna have company, I could do a lot worse. That's for sure :-)

Lizzy Cundy had a moment

I had to GOOGLE Lizzy Cundy to find out who the eff she is. It seems she's a 45 year old UK television host who does programs about WAGS, who are, if I'm right here, the wives of British footballers (soccer players here in the colonies). Anyway, she turned up at a charity thing wearing this fairly unimpressive dress:

Well, she didn't get too far along the red carpet, photo op area before things went wrong:

I'm no dress designer, but looking at those oddly shaped straps, I'm wondering if there's supposed to be a chain or something across the shoulders that would help keep the dress tight against the wearer's torso. No matter though, it's off to the races now:

And one final note, when the photographers at an event keep going "Turn sideways for us . . . lean back . . . a little more . . . yeah, perfect" you might want to wonder if there's something wrong with your dress. Just sayin'

Tara Reid set the standard for oblivious red carpet exposure some years ago:

Lizzy's not at that level here, but she's a close second.

Here's something I don't get

And like a great many things, I'm sure this is just an "age" thing, 'cause I'm old and stuff, but I saw this pic of Madonna's daughter Lourdes Leon out and about the other day and something caught my eye:

lourdes leon nose ring

And no, I'm not talking about those eyebrows that practically have a life of their own. But her nose ring.

In truth, I find the overdoing of tattoos and piercings on the younger generations to be a bit off-putting in general. But I've come to appreciate the artwork of some of the ink being done and some of the jewelry kids adorn themselves with isn't completely horrible.

But of all the questionable (to me) piercings, I don't get the ring through the nose. There's a cultural significance to that, and it isn't good. It conjures up the notions of chattel . . . slavery . . . involuntary submission . . . subjugation . . . all things I would think a young, supposedly independent, feminist-type woman of today would find abhorrent and would seek to distance herself from.

And yet I see more and more young ladies with a ring through their nose. Maybe they're trying to re-appropriate negative imagery, and if so, more power to them. But to me, the right way to do this is just let it die out and disappear into the dust bin of history.

But like I said, I'm just an old man. Maybe I just don't get it.

Effing finally!! Thank you.

In a recent column at National Review online, writer Charles C. Cooke puts out there for far more viewers than I could ever to hope to reach, exactly what I've been saying since we started the 2016 campaign for President of The United States:

"Whatever he might claim before his adoring crowds, Trump is not in fact an antidote to Barack Obama. He is his parallel."

Thank you, Charles! *man hug* I have said repeatedly that we do not need another petulant, thin-skinned wanna-be king in the White House just because he's running with an R after his name. Or as Cooke puts it:

"As has been made abundantly clear by his incessant mewling and pathetically thin skin, Donald J. Trump is not in fact an unwaveringly resolute tough guy of the type you would hope to find standing next to you in the trenches, but an insecure attention seeker who cannot help but pander to his audiences’ prejudices."

Precisely. As Charles Krauthammer pointed out recently, Trump is running his campaign like a reality TV show. He's simply in it to win it. He doesn't really care about being President, he simply wants to win the contest to feed his ego. Honestly, can you truly imagine this vulgar cretin constrained by the office and all it entails for four years? If elected, Trump could conceivably be the first President to step down voluntarily before his term is up because he simply didn't like the job.

We saw and heard TV pundits and analysts, particularly after the last debate, give Trump a pass as he showed a distinct weakness on substantive policy discussion -- whether domestic or foreign. The boilerplate apologies go along the lines that Trump is so far out in the lead, he really didn't need to have a great debate, just be gaffe free, blah, blah, blah.

In fact, both Trump and Dr. Carson do badly in substantive debates because neither has any experience actually running anything. And both are staggeringly ignorant on foreign policy and domestic economic policy. Dr. Carson is a good, honorable, decent man. And I like him personally. But the time when a nice guy could just amble into the White House and run this country armed with only simple ethics and desire ended over a hundred years ago. You need to know how to politic and craft policy and work your political opponents to create compromise to get things done. Something that despite the incessant vitriol leveled at George Bush, he managed to do quite well. And this is where our current President has failed so dramatically. Unable to get his own party to enact legislation when they controlled both houses of Congress. Or just pass his own budget. Once! In eight years!! Ridiculous!!!

Barack Obama was elected on a plate of childishly simplistic rhetoric. And we have seen how that has failed to translate to actual achievement. Thus Obama rules as King via executive order. Something we fought a war to free ourselves from a couple of hundred years ago.

Cooke points out this very thing in his article about Trump:

"In Trump’s world, America will be restored to glory when his handpicked team of experts is permitted to experiment upon the public outside of the usual constitutional limits. Nowhere in his rhetoric will you find any reference to America’s pre-existing cultural and legal traditions, or to the necessary bounds that free men insist be imposed upon the state. There is no talk of "freedom"; no reflexive grounding of ideas in the Declaration and the Federalist Papers; no conceptual explanation or underlying philosophy. There is nothing, except will to power. By his own admission, Trump’s are the politics of doing enthusiastically what works in the moment; of Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt; of the administrative state and of bureaucratic expertise."

Again, precisely. Trump's standard remark when pressed is "Trust me" or "We'll get it done" but never how. We heard this all before. Eight years ago. Are Republican voters so stupid as to fall for this again? I hope not. But at least others are starting to point the problems with Trump as President.

Glad I'm not the only one saying this stuff now.

One more thing.

Trump and Carson, and to a lesser extent, Fiorina, all as outsiders will have to have a coterie of advisors working with them to inform their President when making policy decisions. We've seen what happens when you pick a group of radical leftists to advise a President (Obama), so I think it would be good for the voters to learn who would have the ear of each of these candidates if they reach the Oval Office.

Don't you?

Rose McGowan is not amused

As I mentioned previously, Bruce Jenner was named Glamour Magazine's Woman of the Year. I chose not to wax enthusiasticly disgusted over this but my former vision of pale-skinned hotness did not hesitate to let the world know exactly how she feels about it via her Facebook page:
Caitlyn Jenner you do not understand what being a woman is about at all. You want to be a woman and stand with us- well learn us. We are more than deciding what to wear. We are more than the stereotypes foisted upon us by people like you. You’re a woman now? Well fucking learn that we have had a VERY different experience than your life of male privilege. Woman of the year? No, not until you wake up and join the fight. Being a woman comes with a lot of baggage. The weight of unequal history. You’d do well to learn it. You’d do well to wake up. Woman of the year? Not by a long fucking shot."

I think what may have set Rose off, was Jenner's remark in the issue's interview about how he struggles to find clothes to wear. Not sure about Rose these days. She seems to be rapidly turning into your crazy Aunt Rose going off wildly on any particular issue that finds the sweet spot in her anger zone.

Last time she went off, it was over some casting director asking her to show up in a tight sweater for an audition for a movie where she would have to wear a tight sweater. Yeah, I know, I don't get it either. I love my Rosie, but her most memorable career moment is probably when she wore this to the MTV Awards:

rose mcgowan - the dress

So it's not like she waving Oscars at the folks who piss her off. But she does have a career to maintain, and like any good liberal, once she got savaged by the SJW's who demand absolute fealty to their agenda, Rose quickly backed down and offered this lukewarm qualification:
"Let me amend this by saying I’m happy for what she’s doing visibility wise for the trans community, and I’m happy she’s living her truth, but comments like hers have consequences for other women. How we are perceived, what our values are, and leads to more stereotyping. If you know you are going to be speaking to media about being a woman, maybe come to understand our struggles."

I think I would have been happier had she shown some backbone and stood her ground over her comments, but you just don't see that much any more from folks in the public eye.  *sigh*

Interestingly, there's a whole war brewing in the LBGT community over the fact that the LGB's don't think the T's deserve the same blank check civil liberties appeasement that the militant gays are pushing for. I think there is actually a "Drop the T" petition on one of those online petition sites. The T's are pushing back by calling the LGB's trans-phobic and discriminatory and every other name that the LGBT community has been leveling at Christians and conservatives who take a dim view of their aberrant sexual orientation for years.

There's a certain sense of Schadenfreude watching these groups go after each other like this.

In closing, here's a couple of pics of Rose doing . . . I'm not sure, maybe body-casting or something. I don't know. But she's topless and still has the body to show off like that. So there ya go.
