If I was working by the old visitation schedule, I would have had this weekend off and could have wasted my time farting around and doing whatever I wanted. But I’ve agreed to a new schedule, one that gives me more time with my boys. As you all know, I never say no to extra time with my boys. the new schedule goes like this:
Funny or Die released a new video this week that stars Jimy Carrey playing a few roles in a music video called ‘Cold Dead Hand’ which is a satire about the NRA and their attitude towards guns in America. The social satire is razor sharp and the backlash to this video which basically says men are using guns to make up for their small ‘packages’. Carrey has not been a fan of the gun lobby and he held nothing back here, in a video that is his funniest stuff since his years on In Living Colour.

This is a bill that Obama should have vetoed. This was a cheap anonymous attachment to a bill that was supposed to stop the government from shutting down today (March 27), and now it’s passed a law that will protect corporations that make GMOs, in other words, genitically modified foods.
‘The Monsanto Provision’ (aka, “biotech rider”) was added to Congress’ spending bill silently (and anonymously) all while everyone was pre-occupied with the whole Gay Marriage thing going on at the Supreme Court. The new law protects companies that make GMO products from litigation and the courts are not allowed to stop them from being able to plant their seeds, even if there is a risk to the health of the people!
Here is the skinny on this act that was added to the bill:
It’s Monday! It’s Monday!
Time once again for Monday School; your weekly helping of “The Rational Corrective To All That Nonsense You Learned Yesterday!”
Today I’ve decided to go back to the basics. This is an older (much older lesson) with a few comments from yours truly tossed in for good measure. So here we go with today’s lesson: Is The Bible A Worthy Means For A Real God?
I happen to live in Canada, right next to our evangelical neighbours. Many Americans (and quite a few Canadians too) seem to overwhelmingly believe that the bible is a means to God. They believe without question and willing chose to convey His most important laws throughout their lives as set requirements for getting into an alleged paradise called heaven in the afterlife.
I am one of many around the world who finds this malarkey extremely difficult to believe.
So with that in mind, please consider the following concerning the bible:
Today is the 23rd of March, and in my family this is usually a big day for us. It was on this day in 1977 that my youngest brother was born. Matthew turns 36 today and the bad news is I will not be celebrating the day with him. Despite my best efforts, my youngest brother and I are not on good terms. I haven’t even spoken with him in months, despite the fact that we pretty much live less than a three minute drive from one another. It’s a shame but one of many indicators that things are not well between us.
I like surveys and I haven’t posted one in a while, so here goes:
1. When was the last time you went to the bathroom outside?
That would be last summer. Swimming with the boys and I didn’t want to take them out of the pool (kicking and screaming) just so I could pee. So I went behind the shed (where I could till observe them) and peed back there to keep the peace.

As I am sure everyone is aware, the Vatican huddled their Cardinals all together to select a new pope to replace Eggs Benedict who was obviously tired of all the Sith jokes.
As a result, the runner up from the previous conclave, Jorge Mario Bergolio, was made the new Pope, who will know be known as Francis the first.
