Fall is here. I thought I should remind you since global warming has made it impossible to notice. That was sarcasm, but I'm not one of these global warming deniers. I believe alarmists of all types: religious, political, scientific, whatever. They go to the trouble of cherry-picking data and applying meaning where there is none; the least you can do is believe them. It sure is hot outside. Brrr...
Due to the recent wave of bank failures, the FDIC may have to borrow billions of dollars from the nation's healthy banks. It's a case of "You scratch my back, I'll scratch yours, we both keep fucking those other people in the face." The government borrowing billions from banks after giving them billions? That's change I can believe in. I also believe in leprechaun-raping unicorns.
The U.N. gathered last week. Unlike most meetings, a lot was accomplished this time. They came to the conclusion that girls are icky and chocolate ice cream is the bestest. Then they played marbles behind Mort's Butcher Shop until the U.N.'s dog caused quite a little scene. Those kids...
Kevin Jonas recently picked his brothers Joe and Nick to be the best men at his upcoming wedding. Good start, Kevin, but you're going to need at least five more virgins to satisfy your wife. But seriously, have fun at your bachelor party. Try not to get too crazy when they wheel out that huge cake and a smaller Bible-shaped cake pops out.
Dancing with the Stars' newest season began last week. It's about time. Housewives and gay men didn't know what to do with that extra hour they weren't decorating or wrapping an orifice around cock.
Michael Moore's newest movie, Capitalism: A Love Story, is coming out Friday. Rex Reed calls it "A great way to make liberals nod at the screen and condescend to coworkers." And Michael Moore has this to say: "Mff gmm nawp wmng hrrph nldp." (His mouth was full.)

Just as we did with mad cow, bird flu and monkey pox, it appears mankind has thwarted swine flu. And even though these diseases have collectively killed as many people as falling pianos in the past ten years, it is our duty as rational adults to react like five-year-olds fearing the boogeyman every time we're told of some disease we're unfamiliar with. With that in mind, here are some potential pandemics with an animal in the title that were made up when some guy in Botswana sneezed. Shit your pants accordingly.

Dear Black Lady Who Writes the Newsletter,
Barack Obama has been facing some harsh criticism lately and, of course, far-left crazies like Jimmy Carter immediately claimed it was racism. As a member of the race ostensibly at the heart of this racism, I am offended by these immediate cries of "Racist!" I'm here to say not only does racism not exist now, it has never existed. Before your head explodes from thinking of a hundred examples simultaneously, let me continue.
I believe the entire concept of racism was concocted by the minorities we supposedly discriminate against. It's more comfortable for them to fabricate this idea that we target people different from us than it is to admit the universe is always coincidental in our favor. I can't say I blame them. I mean, if I had to pick an enemy, I would certainly prefer Caucasians to the entire fucking universe.
Slavery is likely an example you'd cite to discredit me, but let's examine that. We didn't take people from Africa because they were black; we did it because we needed laborers who would work for nothing. And since the dicks in America wanted to get paid, we went to Africa to buy some. It's not like we said "Sounds good. But I'm only doing it if they're black." We slaughter cattle because that's how you get beef. It's not like we hate cows.
And we only wiped out Indians because they were on land we wanted. Sure, their skin and clothes made them easy to target, but it's not WHY we did it. History would've played out the same if the indigenous people had been the crackeriest people ever. "This land yields great crops. Too bad you folks are white so we can't slaughter you and take it." Puh-leeze.
You might say this is all semantics. You might say, "Your reason for subjugating us is irrelevant. The fact is that you HAVE done terrible things to countless people for centuries and the roots of that behavior are so deep they haven't completely disappeared. The preposterous suggestion that it wasn't racially motivated isn't the point."
My response? I'm white so the point is whatever I say it is.
The point is Christian white men never target a group because it's different. It is sheer coincidence that all the people we've needed to enslave, kill, beat or rape have been different. We aren't racists because we say we're not racists. What part of that do you not get? If a prostitute calls herself a "performance artist," I don't call bullshit. I accept it as truth because she has made it her truth. And if your truth says that I AM racist, my truth trumps it somehow.
Have we made mistakes? Sure. But they were just several billion isolated incidents. It's not some centuries-old systemic problem you can slap a label on. That is too easy and, frankly, too ingenuous.
So, let's stop carelessly throwing around completely accurate and simultaneously false labels like "racist" "sexist" or "guy who just curbed that Mexican for no reason." Because when you get right down to it, we're all just people.

Affirmative action, now that's racist.
