Greetings. Today’s episode of Stating The Obvious is a repeat. This is episode 100 recorded on 23 December, 2009. On Friday, if things go well, I’ll be recording episode 200 of Stating The Obvious. I’ve got a groovy topic lined up but need to get my thoughts in order. Today I’m backed up with other work, thus the repeat.
Plus I think it’s always good to look at the past. It’s a thing called history and it’s important.
Here are the show notes for this episode:
Many of you believe – because you are stupid – that when the government is running health care everything is going to be better.
Diversity in furniture at CSU. CSU college professors, with Ph.D educations, are not allowed to choose their own furniture. CSU is going to tell them what furniture they are allowed to choose from and what furniture is mandatory in order to maintain uniformity. Uniformity, on a college campus? Where is the diversity? Not only that, but they have to accept the new furniture even if they don’t want it. CSU is buying new furniture and forcing them to use it. While making budget cuts. Only one size white board allowed. Would you like 3 chairs? Nope, can’t have ’em. These professors have years and years and years of experience using furniture. The notion that a government committee can choose their furniture for them shows just how fucked up the government is. Government making choices for people is what “government” is all about, and it’s also exactly why government is evil.
Not only that, but the identity of the people on the committee making the furniture decisions is secret. No one is allowed to know who is making this decision.
Hope for the change for the change of the hope! The government always knows what is best for you. Just like with health care.
Is it important to attend you classes in college? For the Medicated Generation apparently not. How does this relate to having a job? Some jobs are attendance based, some jobs are accomplishment based. The truth is that most jobs are attendance based. For most jobs you will be expected to show up at a specific time and be there for a certain number of hours. Deal with it.
FDA bans flavoured cigarettes as they are a “gateway” to becoming a “regular tobacco user”. This is going to “help” stop 3,600 from starting to smoke daily. First: Where does that number come from? That number is totally made up. There is no way to validate that number. Second, if this ban is going to “help” stop them from smoking what is the rest of the plan? What is going to complete the task of stopping them? Something else must be involved if this is only going to “help” stop them from smoking.
Did you know that being alive is a gateway to smoking? Everyone who has ever or will ever smoked a cigarette is or has been or will be alive.
Meanwhile CSU marketing professors “prove” flavoured cigarettes are more appealing to youth by . . . wait for it . . . exposing children to flavoured cigarettes. If children see a cartoon camel advertising cigarettes they will turn into smokers, yet when scientist expose children to flavour cigarettes it’s okay. Isn’t seeing cigarettes a gateway?
“Anything that prevents children from smoking is definitely a step forward.” Anything? Killing them? Anything? Really, anything? Zeig Heil!
The Hussein Obama the First and the Second Justice Department has determined that black people are too stupid to know who to vote for if people running for office are not labelled as Republican or Democrat. Democrats, specifically black Democrats, are the “candidates of choice” for black people. Additionally, white people will not vote for black people unless those black people are Democrats.
The Justice Department says it’s up to them to determine who should win elections and then pass laws to make sure those people win elections. What the fuck!? Over!
The Justice Department says that black people can not be elected to office unless they are identified as Democrats.
Due to low voter turn out black people have not been able to elect their candidates of choice. Well then maybe black people should go out and vote. Or maybe they just don’t care. It’s not like they don’t know there is an election going on. Maybe the choices they have in the election don’t impress them.
