Apologies to the purists for “M-Effers.” I’m giving up the F-word and all its variety for Lent to see if I even have the ability to exercise brain-to-mouth/brain-to-fingers discipline. Slipped once yesterday. Slipped today….two five six nine ten times. (And really there were no other suitable nouns or adjectives!) Maybe I won’t slip tomorrow.  The graphic was made months ago.

To the subject at hand…

#1 The U.S. Department of Justice–Because America tortured people, and that’s okay for some reason.  I bet a lot of criminals wish Justice would choose not to look back and only look forward.  Shoplifters, forgers, drug users.

#2 The Washington Post–For adding a torture advocate to their stable of writers.

#3 Principal of a New York City school who called the police on a 12-year-old girl because she wrote “I love my friends Abby and Faith” on her desk.  The child was arrested, handcuffed, and hauled off as if she had tortured somebody…oh wait, that’s okay…as if she had robbed a bank.

#4 Republicans who cannot do something as simple as craft a jobs bill without looking for millions of dollars in corporate welfare.

#5 Dick Cheney for still talking.

#6 Health Insurance companies for being so willing to stick it to people in hard times.

#7 The biology professor in Northern Alabama who killed her colleagues and apparently her own brother.

#8 And Nathan Lewis who beat his bride on the couple’s wedding night.

  1. Ah, Idaho. If you’ve never been to Lewsiton/Clarkston, it smells like an armpit because it’s in the Snake River canyon so it has an inversion layer, as well as a huge papermill — Weyrhauser I think.

    On the plus side, it’s always 10 degrees or so warmer than where I’m at, but that just makes it a warm armpit.

  2. i wonder if the story about that adorable little girl being arrested would have ended differently if she had written ‘i love jesus’ instead of ‘i love my friends abby and faith.’
