Ruminations of the Easily Amused for 2/13/2014

Why Dale Hanson is King-


Several NFL officials are telling Sports Illustrated it will hurt him on draft day because a gay player wouldn't be welcome in an NFL locker room. It would be uncomfortable, because that's a man's world.

You beat a woman and drag her down a flight of stairs, pulling her hair out by the roots? You're the fourth guy taken in the NFL draft.

You kill people while driving drunk? That guy's welcome.

Players caught in hotel rooms with illegal drugs and prostitutes? We know they're welcome.

Players accused of rape and pay the woman to go away?

You lie to police trying to cover up a murder?

We're comfortable with that.

You love another man? Well, now you've gone too far!

It wasn't that long ago when we were being told that black players couldn't play in "our" games because it would be "uncomfortable." And even when they finally could, it took several more years before a black man played quarterback.

Because we weren't "comfortable" with that, either.

So many of the same people who used to make that argument (and the many who still do) are the same people who say government should stay out of our lives.

But then want government in our bedrooms.

I've never understood how they feel "comfortable" laying claim to both sides of that argument.

I'm not always comfortable when a man tells me he's gay; I don't understand his world.

But I do understand that he's part of mine.

Some snark on Rick *Ooops* Perry attending Davos (Hightower Report)

the big news from Davos this year was not who attended, but the platinum-level biggies who spurned the invite, such as Warren Buffett, along with the head honchos of Apple, Facebook, and Google. It seems that many are put off by the declining level of speakers and panelists.

As if to emphasize that decline, the forum organizers even brought in Gov. Rick "Oops" Perry of Texas to be on a health care panel. Now that's industrial-strength chutzpah! After 14 years as governor, Perry's state still has a fourth of its people with no health insurance, the ugliest performance of all 50 states. Indeed, if Davos attendees need an example of how a public official who enjoys government-paid health care can so crassly deny any coverage to millions of the less fortunate, Perry's their man.

Adding to the forum's unintended satire of elites-without-a-clue, a major subtheme this year was how to address economic inequality. One way would be to invite at least one person who's on the receiving end of inequality – maybe one of Rick Perry's uninsured constituents.

Did you see that HORRIBLE Cadillac commercial playing during the Olympics? Um. keep asking myself why it's bad that some Europeans taken an entire month off for a vacay. Also, then watched a movie about the 1 percent done by a child of the Johnson and Johnson forture in which Warren Buffett disowned his grandchild. 

Kentucky to recognize gay marriages performed in other states.

What about Texas? Here's a specious argument because it implies that hetero sex marriages are only for procreation.
