California to Establish an F-Bomb Awareness Week

Thursday, February 25, 2010
Posted in category Uncategorized

This is a private joke, but my California friend Richard Nikoley is in big trouble. He swore off swearing for his New Year’s Resolution, and recently, he came back to life again – just how we all love him. Well, the California state legislature must have gotten wind of his broken resolution, ‘cuz here you go:

The state Assembly passed a resolution Thursday that would establish the first week of March as “Cuss Free Week” throughout the state. If approved by the Senate next week, the measure would take effect immediately.

The resolution includes no enforcement mechanism and is simply meant to promote greater harmony and connectedness, said Assemblyman Anthony Portantino, a Democrat from La Canada Flintridge and co-author of the measure.

The teenager who started this whole thing (oh, ain’t he cute) wants to travel around the U.S. and pass these feel-good bullshit resolutions throughout the country. And the idiot parade will stand around and cheer on this flagrant waste of taxpayer money. I say fuck that.

    Find out the kid’s travel route. Post the .kml on google maps. Stage protests with people in his face with big signs that say ” FUCK YOU, PRICK.”

    The protest chant could be Carlin’s 7 dirty words.

    The speech police shall make a nationwide tour proclaiming every fucking thing that’s fit for you and I to say? There probably won’t be any exceptions for Valentines Day – week, lots of cussing going on that week… but I’m sure they don’t mean “that” kind of cussing do they?

    Do they mean to try and stop the cussing of homeowers who finally figured out they are upside-down and heading for a waterfall? Or do they mean to control and ticket the gang-bangers and classless no-couth loudmouths? Or those whose unemployment benefits just ran out? As if…

    Maybe in the future they’ll whip the cussers just like they cain the gum chewers in Singapore? Do they still do that to gum chewers?

    Next it will be the meep-meep’ers?

    Oh-wow tyrants are fucking-Ugly.

    Yes, because greater harmony and connectedness always comes out of pressuring people to conform. Prigs.

    Karen,
    a funny, and yet spot-on post. I can always count on your insights to cut through the “BS” and get right to the point. :)
    Keep up the great work.

    So what the hell are they going to do if you do cuss during their special non-cussing week? Cut your damn tongue out? Perhaps this teenager listens to his old man at the dinner table cursing the f’ng govt, the mortgage company, his boss, rising utility bills and whatever else ails him..and the kid just plumb decided that it would be nice to have a mellow moratorium on swearing for a week. When the kid grows up and finds out why his dad was swearing 24/7, the kid will then understand why dad was foaming at the mouth, and the kid will probably turn terrorist knowing his generation has been duped into being slaves for the state via trillions of dollars of debt…and then like father, like son, he will follow in dad’s footsteps and start calling members of congress everything from dipshit, to assbags, to shit for brains and tards, and that’s for starters!

    Oh Karen, talk dirty to me, lol!

    My truck-driving Vietnam-vet wife just had plastic surgery. And she heard the sound of the incision near her ear, and said, “Ew! That’s fuckin’ gross!” The doctor was quite taken aback…apparently Lifestyle Lift customers don’t drop the F bomb, even when on Very Good Drugs.

    I suppose this will be followed by a “Don’t say anything bad about the government week.” That’s how it begins: we encourage people to “voluntarily” speak politely, then “encourage” them to volunteer, in the same way we encourage people to “voluntarily” pay their taxes.

    [...] No shit at all. That'll be the day: when I respect any resolution of civility from a goddamned felon-in-waiting. Never in this life. Feb 26, 10 | 1:59 pm AxeBitesVarious guitars I see floating by, mostly Gibson and mostly eBay. Early Norlin ES-335 — 1970, in Walnut ("ES-335TDW"). This is a period-piece look and feel, and arguably the sound as well but that's to cut things very finely. A "classic" 335 would be the original of 1958 in the Sunburst or Natural finish, or the Cherry Red of 1959; the Walnut of 1970 (second year of that finish offering) is not really a "classic" 335. In the history of the Gibson aesthetic, this is analogous to, say, vertically-striped polyester bell-bottoms or Bahama Blue shag carpeting. None of this is to say that they're not cool guitars, and this is a nice one. Excellent photographs. Chrome hardware, featuring the trapeze tailpiece (like my L-47 and I've always liked it) and ABR-1 bridge with period-typical nylon saddles. Bound rosewood fretboard, with small block markers, and then the crown inlay at the machine head. These would be the T-top Humbuckers. Vintage Nazis would moan that the upper bouts are pointy (the body templates were wearing-out in the factory) and the fourteen-degree machine head with the volute signals a sometimes not-fun era of the line, but these things really do rock or moan or whatever you want a 335-type semi-hollow to do. …which, of course, is because it really is a 335. In the months since I've let AxeBites languish all to bleedin' hell, Gibson's Robot Guitar technology has sifted out to other models than the original Les Paul application. I don't know how it's going: I still haven't even seen one of these self-tuners. I don't see piles of them burning on the sides of the highway, nor reverent hangings in display cases over bars, so who knows? This 2008 Robot SG is ready to rock in the Metallic Red. Nickel hardware; it's the stoptail wired for data to send to the tuners, with dual Humbuckers. It's a bound rosewood fretboard, but I really like the single-bound machine head with the crown inlay. That's a real cool old-school look, right there, to set off that crazy-ass color. {nod} var sc_project=4035736; var sc_invisible=1; var sc_partition=31; var sc_click_stat=1; var sc_security="23230927"; [...]

    Two to Four….understood your ” That’ll be the day: when I respect any resolution of civility from a goddamned felon-in-waiting. Never in this life.” In fact, I absolutely howled at the ‘felon-in-waiting’ line, but dude, you really lost me after that sentence. Like what on earth does guitar land have to do with an anti-cussing week that this forum is all about? Did you start in on that friday six pack before evening even arrived?

    Jeannie — two-four’s post was a “pingback” from a link to my blog from his blog. Pingbacks aren’t comments; I mistakenly approved it in my comments.

    You have got to be shitting me.

    Well, it’s good to know that the CA legiscritters have their deck chairs all in a tidy row.

    How about someone trying to gin up support for a bill that advocates exactly the reverse? I think an “F-bomb Week”, in which everyone is encouraged to let loose with as as many salvos as they can muster out of their verbal bays and magazines, directed at every conceivable deserving target, is exactly the sort of cathartic event that might just help mobilize people to actually start pushing back this PC, touchy-feely, kumbaya bullshit. But of course that would be an act of political and sociological suicide for the ruling classes…

    Looks like they’re already moving in on that pesky First Amendment, huh?
