Hawkins and the deputy had set up a meeting to buy 60 pills of hydrocodone on Tuesday, but when he arrived, he had only 40 pills.  Authorities charged Hawkins for possession of hydrocodone for resale, according to the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office.

Super.  What says Gospel like an Oxy toting parson?

Kanye West is a Sick Egomaniac

leave a comment »

At a concert on Friday in Sydney, Australia, the acclaimed rapper called out a pair of fans for not standing up at the show. One had a prosthetic limb, and the other was in a wheelchair,

Oh, Kanye. The acclaimed rapper/self-described Steve Jobs/newly minted Kardashian, who once rapped, “They tryna put me on the schoolbus with the space for the wheelchair,” halted a concert on Friday night after discovering that several audience members weren’t standing up to honor their Lord and Savior.

The setting was the Qantas Credit Union Arena in Sydney, Australia, and West reportedly announced, “I can’t do this song. I can’t do this show until everybody stand up… Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and XXXX. ‘Imma see you if you ain’t standing up, believe me, I’m very good at that.” Then came the foot-in-mouth moment. Most of the fans got up and boogied, but soon West spotted a pair of concertgoers who’d remained in their seats, and refused to continue the show until they stood up and danced like the rest. One of those two singled-out fans raised a prosthetic limb, thereby proving that she did in fact “get special parking and XXXX,” to which West replied, “Okay, you fine.”

West then homed in on Fan No. 2, who was still seated. He stopped performing the tune “The Good Life” and declared, “This is the longest I’ve had to wait to do a song, it’s unbelievable.” The crowd was reportedly trying to clue Kanye in to his epic blunder, with the entire section making wheelchair signals with their arms. But to no avail. West sent his bulky bodyguard Pascal Duvier into the crowd to confirm that the seated fan was, in fact, in a wheelchair. When it was confirmed, West said, “He is in a wheelchair? It’s fine!”

What. A. Jerk. And worse, a self inflated depraved egomaniac. And you fans pay him to be such.  For my part, I wouldn’t pay a single penny for anything he produced.  And if he gave it away, I still wouldn’t take it.  And if he offered me money to take his rubbish pseudo-music, I’d laugh and walk off.

Total Depravity: The HIV+ Teacher Who Had Sex with a 15 Year Old Boy

leave a comment »

A Texas school teacher who was arrested this week on a charge of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy has told police that he is HIV-positive, according to the Dallas News.  Roger Kessler, 43, a music teacher for 14 years at RISD Academy in Richardson, faces a charge of sexual assault of a child, a second-degree felony.

Sexual assault isn’t the only thing he should be charged with.  How about attempted murder?

Kessler was arrested this week when a woman, — suspecting he was a burglar — detained him until the police arrived as he attempted to  flee the home of the victim.

Ugh.

According to authorities, Kessler said he met the teen through Grindr, a dating app for gay and bisexual men,  where they exchanged explicit messages. Police say the school teacher showed them incoming messages on his phone from the teen that read, “my dad isn’t home.” An outgoing message from Kessler read, “is your mom home right now.”  Kessler initially claimed that believed the teen was a college student before admitting he knew his real age.  The teacher revealed to police that he is HIV-positive, and had not informed the teen of his condition. He stated that he had multiple sexual encounters with the young man, including anal and oral sex, but had used protection in all instances except one.

How vile.  How utterly vile.  What a depraved indifference to the health, well being, and life of another.

How Anyone Can Have Anything But Contempt For Fox News is a Mystery

with 4 comments

Today they mocked the wife of Ray Rice.  Despicably.

New footage of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice knocking his fiancee out cold in an elevator was released this morning by TMZ. The video shows Rice leveling Janay Palmer, and then casually dragging her limp body out of the elevator.  Responding to the video, Fox host Brian Kilmeade on Monday blasted the victims of domestic violence, criticizing Palmer (now Janay Rice) and other women who don’t break up with their partner after a domestic violence incident, saying they send a “terrible message.”  Kilmeade then proceeded to provide mocking advice to Palmer, quipping, “I think the message is, take the stairs.” Co-host Steve Doocey gamely joined in, “The message is, when you’re in an elevator, there’s a camera.”

What sick, evil, debased, inhuman beasts.

Zionism and Neoliberalism

In the past ten months, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) administration has done two things of note: rejected the American Studies Association (ASA) vote to boycott Israeli universities and fired Arab-American boycott supporter Steven Salaita.  Six months ago, we asked in an essay “Why is the American elite scared of BDS?” — the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement.  In the case of UIUC, the answer is simple and clear: deep political and financial ties between the university’s leadership and Israel.

The whole essay is quite revealing.  Noteworthy especially is this factoid:

Let us start with UIUC Chancellor Phyllis Wise. Since 2009, Wise has served on the governing board of Nike Corporation.  In 2013, Wise earned approximately $290,000 in annual salary and other compensation for her services to Nike, on top of the more than $500,000 in salary she earns as UIUC chancellor.

It isn’t at all difficult to imagine that the Chancellor has vested interests in Israeli policy.  Proving, once more, that for most of ‘higher education’ in the United States, it’s only money that matters.

Neoliberalism… ha.

Soon Enough Polygamy Will Be Legal in this Country

After all, if gay marriage is, why shouldn’t polygamy be?  And there are slippery slope deniers.  Fools.

A federal judge appointed by George W. Bush has issued his final order striking down key parts of Utah’s ban on polygamous cohabitation as unconstitutional, while leaving intact the state prohibition against bigamy.

Soon enough… soon enough.

As previously reported, Kody Brown of the TLC reality show Sister Wives, along with his four “wives,” Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn, filed suit in 2011 to challenge parts of the law that they claimed violated their privacy rights.

Then in due time beastiality and pedophilia will be legitimized by law because there really is such a thing as a slippery slope and no matter what its deniers declare, if any kind of marriage is constitutional, every kind of marriage is constitutional (sooner or later).

It exceeds credulity for any sensible person to believe that now that the door is open it isn’t open to everyone and everything.
