I'd Say A Lot for a Million

Alright, one last thought (unless something else really pisses me off) on the Mary Cheney thing: Money speaks. And when Mary saw some money, that is when she started speaking.

I know some people are so freaking happy that Mary is finally being an "activist" and "speaking out". But if you are one of those people, well, you are stupid.

Mary is on a publicity tour to sell a book she got paid a million dollars to write. That's a lot of $$! I know that there is a lot that I would do for a million dollars.

So fine, Mary is finally speaking out about her hedonistic sexual desires. Though, a whore is also a hedonist that gets paid.

Go Fuck Yourself, Mary

The Polibois have had extreme disgust for Mary Cheney ever since she first got involved in her dad's VP campaign as a person openly living the homosexual lifestyle. And really, that's all she considers her sexual life to be...A lifestyle choice.

When Mary's parents showed false emotion in response to John Kerry's discussion of her lifestyle in a 2004 Presidential debate, Polibois instantly made signs and shirts that also declared Mary's lifestyle choice. If Kerry was going to get shit for talking about it, we figured we should too. Someone had to take a stand.

Now in her book Mary has the nerve to declare this (on top of calling Kerry a 'son of a bitch' and telling John Edwards to 'go fuck yourself' for making very good points about her sexual desires in their respective debates in 2004):
"John Kerry didn't 'out me', nor did he offend or attack me by calling me a lesbian," she remarked. "It wasn't a secret that I was gay, and I certainly couldn't be offended by the truth,'' she writes. ``What was offensive was that he was obviously trying to use me and my sexual orientation for his own political gain."

Right Mary, Republicans never use gay rights as a wedge issue. The only thing that is really offensive in this story is you, Mary.

And Mary, I cannot make this more clear, you are a disgusting 'selfish hedonist'. Alan Keys is right about that. You only care about the base pleasures in life, and for that you are not a representative of any movement having to do with gay and lesbian rights.

Kerry's spokesman, David Wade, is right on when he says:
"Seems like a suspicious lecture from a political operative who flacked for the most anti-gay administration in history and allowed Karl Rove to divide America for political gain," Wade said. "SheÂ’d be more credible if she pushed dadÂ’s administration to support hate crimes legislation and equal rights for gay Americans."

No Sympathy for Mary

Someone at the Washington Blade thinks that we should have sympathy for poor Mary Cheney. I'm sorry, but writing a book that describes why you made the bad choices you did does not let you escape the fact that you made bad choices. And Mary Cheney has certainly made horrible choices. She may like to get it on with women, but she is no member of the gay and lesbian community. She is a homosexual at best. Perhaps in it for the base pleasures and nothing more. My initial thoughts to the Blade blog post that defends her:
Now that Mary Cheney has gone to great lengths to tell us how pro-gay she really tries to be, are we suddently supposed to feel sympathy for her? Her family would not have abandoned her if she left the 2000 and 2004 campaigns. However, by working for Bush/Cheney in both campaigns she certainly abandoned her so-called principles and the LGBT community. Mary is an intelligent person and she knows the consequences of her decisions. I certainly fault her for actively campaigning against the rights of LGBT people. Maybe choosing to work for her father's campaign in 2004 was a tough choice, but she ultimately made the wrong decision. Sorry, a cheap book won't get sympathy from this mary, Mary.

Being a gay and lesbian is about more than hooking up with girls and boys, Mary. Or having a steady relationship. It is about being committed to principles and demanding through words and ACTION that the LGBT community receives equal rights under the law that all heterosexual breeders enjoy!

The Gas Crisis Is Out of Control

I was on gay.com when I realized just how bad the gas crisis has gotten:

Wow. When gas is used to sweeten the deal, you know the problem is bad. I mean, they even offered to swallow!

Don't Book That Trip to Mexico Just Yet...

It looks like Vicente Fox has had a bit of a change of heart, he announced today he is not going to sign the law passed last week by the Mexican Congress (or whatever they call it down there) which would have legalized a wide variety of drugs.

Just last week it was all but a guarantee that Fox would sign it into law since it was his office that propsed the bill and pushed it through:
"That's probably why they (the senators) passed it the way they did, in the closing hours of the final session," Aguilar said. "He's going to sign it. ... He's not going to abandon his party two months before the (presidential) election."
But it looks like he doesn't care about the election... He cares more about making sure his country doesn't become a magnet for "drug tourism"

Hey - at least we've still got the Netherlands! and they like the gays there too!

Mexico's Fox balks at signing drug law

Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary, Why Do You Hate Yourself So?

Mary Cheney's book comes out May 9th and if you didn't already know: She's a big dyke! Well, I guess we all know that by now (thanks to lesbian loving John Kerry's performance in a 2004 debate with Bush).

In an upcoming Vanity Fair article reported on by Drudge, Mary explains coming out to her parents as a junior in high school:
In her new memoir, NOW IT'S MY TURN (Simon & Schuster/Threshold Editions, 2006), Mary Cheney writes that when she told her parents she was gay, the first words out of her father’s mouth “were exactly the ones that I wanted to hear: ‘You’re my daughter, and I love you, and I just want you to be happy.’”

VANITY FAIR editor Todd Purdum reports that Mary Cheney tells her story in a voice very much like her father’s, and that she came out to her parents when she was a junior in high school, on a day when, after breaking up with her first girlfriend, she skipped school, ran a red light, and crashed the family car. Cheney writes that her mother hugged her, but then burst into tears, worried that she would face a life of pain and prejudice.

When Purdum asks the vice president whether he thinks gay people are born that way, Cheney scrunches up his mouth, fixes him with a look that says “Nice try,” then says: “I’m not going to get into that. Those are deeply personal questions. You can ask.”

Yes Mary, a very loving family indeed. Your dad accepts you so much that he works for a President that is bent on outlawing your very being in the Constitution and can hardly talk about the issue himself, while your mother works with the very organizations that would cause you the life of pain and prejudice she fears you may face.

What it must be like to live in a world of such self-hatred surrounded by people that consistently contradict their so-called "love" for you.

Well, I guess when your dad's a Dick you can't expect much better, huh?

USAToday Learns How to Copy & Paste

It is times like this I wish I worked in the media:


When the headline is the same every week...is it even news anymore?

Random Sh*t: Walmart Style

Umm...I honestly don't even know what to say about this...you just gotta read it for yourself:

Second person glued to toilet

A Day Without...

Umm...so is it just me, or did yesterday's "Day Without Immigrants" do absolutely nothing? I personally noticed absolutely no difference (except of course the local Wendy's opening a few hours late)

There are an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in this country, and millions more supporters, latinos and random other people who protest for anything, yet the largest protest yesterday (in Chicago) only had 300,000 people there.

The media coverage leading up to this event for the past 3 weeks has been making it sound like it would be the apocalypse, yet nothing happened. I saw the same level of service as always, the wendy's opened (even if a little late), the people who don't speak english came to empty the trash and clean the kitchen in my office at night, and amazingly, the country did not come to a screeching halt.

So either we don't rely on the immigrant community as much as these activists would like us to think, or they just aren't organized enough to put together a real boycott/walk-out.

p.s. - I promise this is the last post that will start with "a day without..."

A Day Without Cher: Don't Count on It!

Proving that you can't keep a good bitch drag queen down, Cher will be taking over Celine's stage in Vegas once she departs in '08. (Even though she had a retirement party that lasted an entire decade.)

While I paid to see Cher's retirement concert twice in the same location, I am happy to see her make yet another comeback! Hell, I'll still go and see her when they have to wheel her out on stage and prop her up with a delicately placed stick up her ass. Then she really would be the gayest show on earth...

Welcome back Cher! When do the tix go on sale?

A Day Without Message Control

I've been stuck at my desk all day like a little worker monkey, so I am not really sure how successful this so-called 'Day Without Immigrants' has been. I personally think it's not a very bright idea, this whole protest and all. I mean, aren't we supposed to want the illegal aliens to stay because they are such hard workers? This is largely going to piss off the Chiptole and Baja Fresh consumer who cannot get lunch today, more than it is going to improve the plight of the aliens.

General thought aliens want consumers to have today: "Where are Maria and Lupe? Why aren't they at the Chiptole? Oh, I bet if they had full legal rights as an American citizen they would be working on my burrito as we speak. I'm calling my congressman to ask that Maria and Lupe get the rights they deserve."

Actual example of a consumer's thought today: "What the fuck is going on? Why can't I get my burrito? Damn it! I gotta go back to work hungry now..."

Oh. And if you are fighting to become an American, you probably want to ask your friends and neighbors to leave signs that say you're prouder to be Mexican than American at home:


Puerto Rico: Closed for Business

That's right, today the government of Puerto Rico has shut down. (who knew they even had a government...btw) Now some may think, "wow..what a strong show of solidarity with the latino community protesting in the US today," but they would be wrong.

The Puerto Rican goverment shut down because they are out of money. Schools, public services and goverment offices are all closed because they ran out of money to fund them. 500,000 students got to start their summer break 2 weeks early, and over 100,000 government workers are now unemployed.

Way to go P.R. - you could have at least pretended this was part of the protest...although I guess everyone would have caught on when your protest went through the rest of the week/month

Puerto Rico Closed

A Day Without Wendy's

Today is the day we have all been fearing. The immigrant community has joined together in solidarity, and will not work, will not shop and most tragically, will not make me my Big Bacon Classic and Biggie Fries.

I was watching the news leading up to today, and I never thought this would effect me. I don't rely on immigrant labor on a day-to-day basis...do i?

Yet this morning I was shocked back to reality, when i came into my office, to look out the window and see the Wendy's parking lot next door - it was completely empty. I'm really not sure how I can survive... this has definitely made me aware of how much I rely on the immigrant population.

SI SE PUEDE! (or umm...something like that)

**UPDATE: the Wendy's has opened...so it appears they just opened a few hours late. Way to take a stand people! You tell 'em: NO WENDY'S BREAKFAST FOR YOU UNTIL I GET MY CITIZENSHIP BITCHES!

A Day Without Immigrants?
