Disclaimer from the I.R.S.

Acting IRS Commissioner Steve Miller gave the true version before a House committee on the revenue agency’s targeting of conservative groups.  Miller admitted that they were mistakes, but denied that the actions were politically motivated.

Miller said, “I think that what happened here was that foolish mistakes were made by people trying to be more efficient in their workload selection.”

Huntsville's Number One for On-Line Porn!

Give us a big hand, folks!  According to PornHub, Huntsville, Alabama has managed to be the "very religious" city with the highest frequency of watching porn on-line.  What do you expect with all our engineers and scientists?

Hey, we got the best adult toy store in the South (Pleasures), and the world-famous Boobie Bungalow in nearby Elkton, Tennessee just over the line.

Not bad for the rocket city, is it?  Let's toot our horns.  Let the Deepie Baptists and the C of Cers in Jones Valley smoke that bitter weed!

Monkey Town was Number 2 for porn-watching among the very religious places; and theBig B was Number 7.

Anthony Weiner is Running for Mayor

That being the fact, he needs an official campaign vehicle:

Maybe he can get campaign donations from Johnson & Johnson.
It shouldn't be hard for him to mount a stiff campaign, and screw the opposition, given that his campaign staff's first names were Peter, Richard, and Rod.
At least New Yorkers can expect to get the shaft.

Eric Holder Walks the Line

Little Snookums Eric Holder, Attorney General Extraordinaire, has dismissed the idea of prosecuting journalists as 'just plain nuts."

Do we have some macademia nuts, like those in those in-room refridgerators in high-level hotels that are an exception?

What is that shiny trail he leaves as he goes?

Johnny Cash tells us how to walk lines right:

No! To the Tebow Bill

Recently, the Alabama Senate let the Tim Tebow bill die.  Good move, guys!  This bill would have allowed homeschooled youngsters play on high school sports teams.

Seriously, I think that only the students who actually go to a high school should get to play on their teams.  No home-schooled kids.  Sorry.

My reasons have nothing to do with politics.  Let's face it, some people play Liberals and Conservatives like a p.c. form of Cowboys and Indians much like their parents or grandparents got to play.   (Some people play that game as a way of getting away with acting like a dick; you know what I mean.)  And I'm not going into the superiority or inferiority of homeschooling.  That's inevitably going to be in a case-by-case situation.  (Maybe in some future post.)

No, it's this.  Going to high school has its ups and downs.  There's the friends, the extracurricular activities, the athletics, young love, groping, the Prom, hanging out in the hallway.  Balance that against homework, boring history classes, unpleasant assistant principals, the gym-like smell in the cafeteria, and so forth.  And, yes, some classmates are less than wonderful.

High school is a shared, collective experience.  And I think that it belongs to the students who happen to attend that school.  Not the School Boards.  Not the teachers.  Not the goddam Legislature.  No, to play football or to cheer for the school, or to be in dramatics, or to be in the band, you have to earn it.  By dragging your ass to that school every day.

And be a part of it all.  No skimming the cream off the top.

Do you wonder why high school football night is so big in small town Alabama?  Yes, it's something to do, in places that are dull.  But the local high school is a local common experience.  And this goes through life, and across generations.

International Clitoris Awareness Week

You read that right.

This is a week given over to better education of the function of the clitoris on women.  It's sponsored by Clitoraid, an organization to help women who are victims of female genital mutilation, practiced in some parts of the world.

This is totally horrible.  This practice is so repellent.

Learn about your clitoris, or your girlfriend's or wife's clitoris, and treat it gently.

It was not reported how Thursday would be themed.
