Rush Limbaugh Makes Fun Of Caitlyn Jenner For Not Getting Penis Removed

In typical fashion, Rush Limbaugh mocked Caitlyn Jenner for not getting the penis removed. He cites a Nancy Grace segment which points out that a trans man or woman is supposed to wait a full year before having the genital sugary done.

“How can you become a woman if you haven’t had the chopadickoffamy?!” as he continued to mock and laugh.

“Why is it mandatory to live for a year before you have the ‘bottom surgery?’” he questions. “Why would you have to wait a year? Is there some sort of psychological hormonal thing that you have to do to adjust? Or is it a commitment thing? You show people you’re really dead serious about this, so you have to do that for a year. What happens, by the way, if nine months in you fail? Maybe that’s why they wait. That would be point of no return. Maybe they wait to see if somebody’s really serious about this.”

Rush Limbaugh On Robin Williams Suicide “Leftist Worldview Caused His Brain To Be Weak And Sick”

Courtesy Politico

Rush Limbaugh has a theory on why Robin Williams committed suicide, because he’s a Liberal. On his Tuesday show he claimed that the leftist attitude is “one of pessimism and darkness, sadness, they’re never happy, are they?” — “They’re always angry about something. No matter what they get, they’re always angry.”

He went on to say “He could never get over the guilt that they died and he didn’t,” “Well, that is a constant measurement that is made by political leftists when judging the country.”

“The Minority Report” To Succeed The Colbert Report In Early 2015

Congratulations are in order for Larry Wilmore, who is named to replace The Colbert Report in early 2015.

Comedy Central has concluded a deal with Jon Stewart’s production company, Busboy Productions, to create the follow-up show to the Emmy-winning “Colbert Report,” which will be coming to an end in the next year when its star, Stephen Colbert, leaves to succeed David Letterman on CBS’s “Late Show.”

The idea for “The Minority Report with Larry Wilmore,” as the show will be known, came from Mr. Stewart himself, who proposed that the 11:30 p.m. time period behind his nightly “Daily Show” was the ideal place for a new format, one that would “provide an opportunity for the underrepresented voices out there,” as Michele Ganeless, the president of Comedy Central said in an interview.

Wilmore, known best known as the “senior black correspondent” has also been a successful writer for television, having created the widely praised series “The Bernie Mac Show” and written for other shows, like “The Office” (where he also memorably played “Mr. Brown” in one of that comedy’s signature episodes), “In Living Color,” “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air” and “The Jamie Foxx Show.”

Tea Party Candidate Drew Turiano Calls For ‘Operation Wetback’

 

The new Republican outreach isn’t going as well as they would like. Real estate investor, Drew Turiano, a Tea Party-affiliated real estate investor joining the race for a Montana congressional seat, called for “another Operation Wetback” in comments published in the local press on Monday — apparently unaware that current deportation levels exceed those of the 1950s.

“It was called ‘Operation Wetback’ and that policy repatriated about 1.4 million illegal aliens that were in America from Mexico,” Turiano said. “He repatriated them along with their American-born children. President Eisenhower did that, it was called Operation Wetback. I think America needs another Operation Wetback.”

Latinos only make up about 3 percent of the population, about 30,000. How this may impact Turiano’s bid is uncertain.

Donald Sterling Banned For Life – Fined $2.5 Million

Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling was banned from the NBA for life Tuesday, and Commissioner Adam Silver announced at a news conference in New York that he would urge owners to force a sale of the team.

During an internal investigation, the NBA determined that it was Sterling’s voice on the tape.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver expressed “personal outrage” over Sterling’s remarks and said “the hateful opinions” expressed by Sterling had no place in an “organization that has taken a leadership role in race relations.”

On behalf of the NBA, Silver apologized personally to some of the NBA’s greatest athletes – and specifically to Magic Johnson, who was a target of Sterling’s rants.

Limbaugh, Trump And O’Reilly Come To Defense Of Donald Sterling’s Racist Rant

As we await news on how the the NBA will handle LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling, there is no shortage of Republicans defending him. Rush Limbaugh lashed out calling him a “typical” democrat.

“This guy is a big Democrat. The only reason he’s in trouble right now is he did not give enough money to Obama. This guy was gonna get a leadership award from the NAACP L.A. chapter. The second one. This guy is a typically Hollywood Democrat.”

Donald Trump claims Sterling was setup by his “girlfriend from hell” speaking on Fox News last Sunday.

“She’s called the girlfriend from hell, but what he said was terrible and despicable and very strong action is going to be taken. There’s no question about it,” Trump said of Sterling’s girlfriend. “She’s a terrible human being and he gave horrible answers and disgusting answers.”

After so many segments stating racism isn’t a rampant problem anymore, Bill O’Reilly claimed “It’s An Individual Problem … Not A Country Problem.”

Sharing Graphics On Facebook Without Getting Reported

These days it seems that everyone is creating their own graphics, it’s a great way to get your message out while sharing your page, blog or website. While most are glad to have their graphics shared, some are very particular about how it’s shared and sourced.

It’s become common place on Facebook for the graphic designer report a copyright violation if their image is not sourced the exact way they prefer, Facebook usually acts with swift, punitive action and penalizes the admin who made the post. As with most reported images with Facebook, there is no recourse. They may say there is, but in my years of running an active page, I have never received a single response to my counter-argument.

I good graphic (meme) will often get shared outside of Facebook as well. Sites such as Reddit, Tumblr, etc. are all about sharing graphics and have millions of users. While the graphic may contain a link and the poster may also add a direct link to the source page, this is often not good enough and the graphic designer may still report you.

What can you do so you don’t get reported on Facebook? Well, there are a couple of things, first is to dig up the source and use the “share” button. For those outside of Facebook this is a huge pain and most won’t do it but Facebook can’t touch you on other sites. Within Facebook however, this is the best way to ensure you don’t get reported. It just requires the extra effort of going to the link, digging for the post, etc.

Secondly, create your own. It’s easy to do with a basic graphics editor and there’s plenty of material out there, then label it with your page. If it’s decent enough it will get shared outside of Facebook as well and there’s a couple of ways to make sure your label is seen.

Add a border, this gives the image a perimeter that looks broken if it’s cropped (yes, people will often crop out your logo/label) and breaks the feel of the graphic.

Also, align your label with your message, see the example below. This will prevent anyone from cropping it out as well.

Lastly, we create these images to be shared. Trying to police “how” they’re shared is ridiculous and frankly, unproductive, think of how much more great material you could’ve created in the time you’ve spent crying to Facebook about someone sharing an image you created to be shared. Good content with a well placed label will get you traffic.

Russia Offers Snowden Asylum

According to the Chicago Tribune, Russia would consider granting asylum to Snowden, if he were to ask for it, President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman said on Tuesday.

Spokesman Dmitry Peskov stopped short of saying Moscow would accept Snowden, but pro-Kremlin lawmakers spoke out in favour of the idea, tapping into a lingering Cold War rivalry with the United States and a vein of anti-American sentiment Putin has often encouraged.

“Promising Snowden asylum, Moscow takes upon itself the defense of people persecuted for political reasons,” Alexei Pushkov, chairman of the international affairs committee in the lower house of parliament, said on Twitter.

Snowden was also fired from the contracting firm Booz Allen Hamilton Holding Corp. who cited “violations of the firm’s code of ethics and firm policy” he was paid a salary of $122,000 annually, not $200,000 as Snowden had previously stated.

There is no word on whether or not Snowden will take Putin up on his offer yet.
