Morrissey: Only Heteros Kill Other Dudes

Feb 26, 2013 2:22 PM PT

In response to Murder Most Fowl: Morrissey Refuses to Share the Stage on Jimmy Kimmel with the "Serial Animal Killers" of Duck-Hunting Show "Duck Dynasty":

That's actually not the biggest "Morrissey being obnoxious" story to come out today. From an interview with Rookie:

What political causes mattered most to you back then, and are they still important to you now?

War, I thought, was the most negative aspect of male heterosexuality. If more men were homosexual, there would be no wars, because homosexual men would never kill other men, whereas heterosexual men love killing other men. They even get medals for it. Women don’t go to war to kill other women. Wars and armies and nuclear weapons are essentially heterosexual hobbies.

This past week I appeared on one of CNN's 'Latino' political programs, 'Choque de Opinions.' We taped the show on Thursday around 1 pm, but the show doesn't air until Sunday night at 8 pm. So far so good. Well, just my luck, Wednesday night I decided to meet up with a friend of mine down in Miami. Upon arriving to her residence, I noticed that my truck was not staying in gear as I tried to put it in the parking position. Long story short, I broke some wire withing he steering column that connects the gears to the little thingy you pull to put the vehicle in gear.

Anyways, got home at 4am, woke up at 7am. Up all morning and went straight to the CNN office in Fort Lauderdale. Sure enough, I started to get sleepy-eyed, as you can see in the picture. I held my own, and even landed some direct blows to a couple of the left-leaning immigration reform panelists, but let me just tell you, I barely made it. I almost nodded of twice during the break. That would have been hilarious if they cut to me and I fell asleep.

Video game sin tax? Where's the sin?

Feb 25, 2013 1:46 PM PT

Politicians rush in where logical people dare to tread.

Connecticut State Rep. Debralee Hovey (R-112) isn't waiting to read the conclusion. Hovey, whose district includes parts of Newtown, introduced House Bill 5735, establishing what she calls a "10% sin tax" on violent video games (those with a rating of "M", intended for consumers 17 and above). The proceeds would go to Connecticut's Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services to develop "to educate families on the warning signs of video game addiction and anti-social behavior.

Hovey isn't the first state lawmaker in the wake of the Newtown tragedy to target video gamers with a tax. Rep. Diane Franklin introduced a similar bill to the Missouri House on January 14th, calling for a 1% surcharge on games with a Teen, Mature, or Adult Only rating. The Missouri bill states that, "immediate action is necessary to protect the mental health of individuals exposed to violent video games."

In response to Jonah Goldberg: Conservatives Don't Need a Movie Studio:

That's a point well-made about the hopes of conservatives to influence culture, John.  You don't do it by creating a conservative movie studio and putting out the right-wing equivalent of the Left's mega-bombs from the Bush years.  I don't know if the concept of a conservative-owned studio is inherently bad, provided it avoided that kind of ham-fisted misstep... but it would be a difficult mistake to avoid.
