Hate has consequences

An abortion doctor was killed today, at his church, in what could be the first terrorist attack under the Obama administration. I'm pretty sure the shooter was no Muslim.

Conservatives have painted Obama as an abortionist, an atheist, a communist, a fascist, an islamic terrorist born on foreign soil. They created fantasies where gays conspire to destroy families, jewish lawyers wage war against x-mas and they were comforted in their views by 8 years of Bush. Now that they lost, do the conservatives elites who used this kind of cynical pandering think their psychofans (mispelled on purpose) are just going to store their guns away now that they believe their country is in peril?

Not long ago a report by the dept. of Homeland Security found that the most urgent terrorist threat against America was from Christian right-wing extremists. The report didn't please Republicans who saw it as an attack against freedom of religion, so the report was swept under the rug. When you spend your time convincing people that homos, jews and doctors are evil, you can't claim you've got no responsability when someone acts on this hatred.

More on this and the blood Bill O'Reilly has on his hands.

Cartoon's birth certificate required

I'm probably a bit late with this news, but Christopher Handley, a manga collector, pleaded guilty to “possession of obscene visual representations of the sexual abuse of children.” (from Wired) What's special about this case is it's the first time someone is found guilty of possessing child porn without possessing any REAL child porn. Before, when pedos got arrested and lolicon was found in their collection, the reason they were thrown in jail was because they also had REAL child porn in their possession.

Like most laws about pornographie, this is so many kinds of wrong. There's no clear definition of what pornographie is in the law. There's no clear definition of what artistic merit is. What is in good taste and what is not? If you jerk off to the picture above, you're a pedo. If you think this a parody or contemporary art, you're safe. But if a judge or a jury made of puritan suburban trash disagree with you, you're skrewed.

Updating for the sake of updating

I should keep the blog a bit more alive, but other than depression, I don't have much to talk about. And I don't want Miss Dynamite to be a daily depression blog. I took Ratzi to the vet to be put to be euthanized last Friday. I feel kinda guilty about it because had I been in better shape I could have taken better care of him. But there wasn't much else to do.

On a more happy subject, I saw what might be the closest thing to what a Miss Dynamite movie could look like. Crank 2. Haven't seen the first one, don't think it matters. It's low budget, it's trash, it's vulgar, the story doesn't make any sense. But it's awesome. The trailer doesn't do this film much justice. It's like Desperado on crystal meth.
