I Had Nothing to Do With It

Even though it reads like something I would do.

Except “I” thought by now there was supposed to be no such thing as “Starbucks,” just the apparently generic mom and pop corner coffee house whose logo contains the visage of a suggestively naked long haired white woman.

And also…they don’t realize that the generic mom and pop corner coffee house whose logo contains the visage of a suggestively naked long haired white woman recently raised the price of those things to $7.

It’s as if the work of the typical black public school student of the heavily black Prince Georges County, Maryland public school system is worth copying…





War on a Romney Woman

12 04 2012

Ann R. has “never worked a day in her life?”

My mother had a hard enough time with one well-behaved son, she had to deal with five.

I guess this whole bit is supposed to be a Democrat sop to working women, though it will probably go over like a lead balloon.  Personally, I’m happy for Ann Romney, in that she was one of the scant few white women left who had a white husband who made enough money on his own to sustain a big household.  That used to be the rule in America rather than the exception.

But that begs the obvious question:  Will Ann Romney’s husband actually do anything to make that a reality again?

It all depends on how much attention he pays to Kris Kobach.

UPDATE

I thought the name Hillary Rosen was familiar.

Yep, that’s Hillary Rosen as in the RIAA.  Ironically, she stepped down from that job to “spend more time with her family.”





Some Place to Go

I figured with half the internet blacked out today in protest of SOPA/PIPA, I figured I better come through with some blog posts, just so you can have something new to read.

This whole issue has been a good acid test to separate the men from the boys.  What mystifies me is that some of the same anti-Ron Paul eliminationist hatemongers are also against SOPA/PIPA, when Ron opposes SOPA (the House bill) and Rand opposes PIPA (the Senate bill), and they did oppose these pieces of legislation before opposing them was cool.

Of course the British Extradition Act of 2003 is being “abused.”  Do you think a President named Barack Hussein Obama would actually want any real “British” terrorists (who have names that sound like his own) actually extradited?  On the flip side of the coin, the copywrong extremist industry, both in Hollywood and New York, dumped oodles of money on his campaign.  Priorities are priorities.

UPDATE:  Marco Rubio (mentioned in the first URL), John Boozman (R-AR) and our very own Roy Blunt had defected over to the good side.

MPAA says SOPA-style censorship works in Yemen and Syria

The MPAA believes SOPA’s censorship mandate will solve its problems, and it has presented research to Congress to support this position. As evidence, it cites the efficacy of similar censorship mandates in China, Iran, the UAE, Armenia, Ethiopia, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Bahrain, Burma, Syria, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and Vietnam.

Yeah, freedom is overrated anyway.

In related news, a lot of “pirates” work for the media conglomerates that fund the copywrong extremists, or the copywrong extremists themselves.  Petardhoistedown.





Interesting: Darrell Issa and Lamar Smith Are On Opposite Sides

Most of the copywrong extremists are in California, so I guess they forgot to buy off a committee chairman from their own state.

Cease and desist: Rocker Tom Petty tells Michele Bachmann she can’t use his music on campaign trail

Rocker Tom Petty has banned Republican presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann from using his hit single ‘American Girl’ on her campaign.

(snip)

The ban follows a similar move in 2000, when Petty refused G.W. Bush permission to use his song ‘I Won’t Back Down’ for the same reasons.

(snip)

Petty previously gave Hilary Clinton permission to use ‘American Girl’ in 2008.

The move is not the first time a Republican candidate has fallen foul of disproving musicians.

In 2008, Sarah Palin used Heart’s song ‘Barracuda’ at the Republican National Convention.

Similarly, Rush (the band, not the talk radio host) didn’t want Rand Paul to use their songs during his campaign events.

Are these musicians and artists as dumb as some of them look?   Don’t they know politicians control copyright law?

How do these lyrics sound, Tom?

Dateline, January 21, 2013 — President Michele Bachmann signs an executive order disallowing the U.S. Justice Department and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli from enforcing the copyrights of Tom Petty’s heretofore copyrighted music, and issues a full blanket civil and criminal pardon to anyone who may have been found guilty in Federal criminal court or liable in civil court of violating his copyrights.  This move effectively puts his music in the public domain.  Bachmann has promised to sign a bill currently circulating in Congress that would allow political campaigns to use otherwise copyrighted music, and would formally place the music of both Tom Petty and Rush in the public domain.  Rand Paul (R-KY) is the Senate sponsor.

Sounds like something that should have happened in 2001.
