Full Frontal Thursday: No Moore, Ryan Zinke, & La Brigada Feminista

In this installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Sam discusses the results of the election in Alabama. She also shines the spotlight on Ryan Zinke. He is the U. S. Secretary of the Interior who claims to believe in climate change, but refuses to do anything that might slow it down.

Finally, she goes to Mexico City to speak with members of La Brigada Feminista, a group of women who wanted to help with rescue efforts following the devastating earthquake there. For some reason, their assistance wasn’t wanted. Instead of being welcomed with open arms, they received death threats.

ROFLMAO @ Selective Censorship

I decided to do a little test today. I made yet another bet with myself, and won. If I had $10 (USD) for every time this has happened, I would have been a wealthy woman by the age of 21.

Racist stereotypes and / or attacks: A-OK.

Misogynist and Misogynoir hate-mongering: perfectly fine.

Saying that someone appears to be “on the spectrum”: Strictly VERBOTEN!

Go figure.

Five On Friday: My Blogging Rules For Myself (Re-blogged)

This “5 on Friday” post from October deserves a re-blog. Happy Friday, everyone!

😎

Random Ramblings; Myriad Musings

Have you ever noticed this specific blogging phenomenon known as the “my blog is better than your blog” attitude? I see it often, and it always reminds me of high school interactions or shitty co-workers. These bloggers know everything about everything, and feel the need to troll or spam other bloggers with their arrogant, know-it-all personal attacks.

Some petty little asshat recently got all butthurt over me asking it to respect the boundaries of my blog. Sorry sunshine, you have your own blog. You do your shit your way, and I’ll keep on keeping on doing my shit my way. Because, you know, this is MY blog. I’ve never told you what to write, have I? That answer would be no. So, don’t tell me what to write, m’kay? It’s pretty fucking simple, but even simplicity is far above the heads of some.

With that, here are the five rules…

Full Frontal Thursday: Taxes, Creepy Men, and North Korea

After a small break, Ms. Bee is back! In this installment she talks about the “Greatest Tax Bill Ever Sold,” breaks down the numbers of men who have engaged in sexual impropriety, and sits down to talk about North Korea with actual Koreans.

Political Pondering…

If Congressman Conyers and Senator Al Franken are required to resign due to the allegations being made against them, then why is there even going to be an election for Senate candidate Roy Moore?

I’d ask someone from Alabama, but I don’t think I’m up for their unhinged psychosis. Inbred southerners are prone to snap in the same way Dobermans and pit bulls are reputed to!

Colin Kaepernick Receives 2017 Sports Illustrated Muhammad Ali Legacy Award

GOOD BLACK NEWS

“If I was walking down the highway with a quarter in my pocket and a briefcase full of truth, I’d be so happy.” – Muhammad Ali, Sports Illustrated, Feb. 19, 1968

Colin Kaepernick made his truth known when he first decided not to stand for the national anthem. He had a lot of football left to play and a lot more money to make when he made his decision. It was late August, 2016. People who were anonymous in life had become famous in death. Philando Castile. Eric Garner​. Alton Sterling. Freddie Gray. They were tragic symbols of a society that had taken a terribly wrong turn. As the anthem played ahead of the 49ers’ preseason game against the Texans, Kaepernick, San Francisco’s 28-year-old quarterback at the time, quietly took a seat on the bench.

It took two weeks for anyone from…

I hope that you enjoy this piece as much as I did. It is quite thought-provoking.

Net Neutrality Redux

Just in case you’ve forgotten what the big fuss is over net neutrality, here are three “Last Week Tonight” clips for your viewing pleasure.

Monday Mini-Musings: Netiquette

Remember when these simple guidelines for internet etiquette, a.k.a. “netiquette,” were generally followed by many? They mainly applied to adults, since kids weren’t as unsupervised in cyberspace as they are now.

People don’t give a crap about these reasonable guidelines anymore, that’s for sure! C’est la vie

Full Frontal Thursday: Roy Moore, Meet the Pences, Tangier Island, & The Future of Comedy

In this installment of “Full Frontal Thursday,” Ms. Bee talks about how utterly disgusting Roy Moore really is, and how utterly creepy Mike Pence the VP and his wife are.

Also, Allana Harkin goes to Tangier Island, some inbred community in B.F.E., and shows us all how frustrating and futile it is to attempt explaining basic facts to people who aren’t interested in them.

Finally, Sam goes on a semi-rant about the future of comedy. She has a bee in her bonnet about something, there!
