Is This Really A Big Deal?


U.S. court rules for Trump on transgender military limits

This is one of those stories that I really don’t have any right to comment on. I’m not transgender, nor do I have any friends or relatives who are. I would consider myself an ally, but mainly that’s because I don’t believe hurricanes are caused by gay marriage.

I suppose the main reason I keep checking up on these stories is I’m waiting for the answer to the question: How big of an issue is this?

I mean, are there lines and lines of transgender people camping outside of recruiting offices waiting to sign up? Are the Marines inundated with a few good men with many good estrogen pills? Are VA hospitals now the best place to receive gender reassignment surgery?

I feel transgendered people should be allotted the same rights and privileges as any other members of society. I believe they should be allowed to marry whomever they choose and join whatever organizations they choose. I also believe that they shouldn’t have to use different public restrooms, water fountains or have to sit in the back of buses.

I do have to play devil’s advocate and say that if the American Psychiatric Association defines gender dysphoria as a mental illness, it does make sense to not allow transgendered people into the military. I thought it went without saying that people suffering from severe mental illness weren’t suitable for the challenges and stresses of serving. I know I was turned away for major depression. But couldn’t we just say that the military will not accept people with major mental illnesses? Did there really need to be an executive order singling out a certain group of people and holding them up for ridicule?

I don’t think so. I think the main point of this is a play to Trump’s base of transphobic cretins who enjoy looking down on those who are different. Like many of his actions, I think it’s a solution in search of a problem. I haven’t seen a good number, but considering about 0.6% of the population identifies as trans I don’t think they’re overwhelming recruitment offices.*

It’s just that in America we salute brave military heroes and believe that they can do anything. Except get gender reassignment surgery. Or assistance if they’re homeless. Or shoot a moving target from the window of a book depository.

 

*An article I read this morning cites a Rand Corporation study that said there are several thousand transgendered troops serving in the active-duty forces. This seemed excessive to me, but I did the math and 0.6% of the million active-duty troops does come out to 6,000.

Are You Lost 24


I like to think it’s because I’m such a great writer that people are coming to read my thoughts on music and politics. Of course, what’s really happening is that people type stupid shit into Google and end up here.

After reading Lebrain’s posts about what search terms lead to his site I thought it would be fun to share what leads people to The Audible Stew.


cant say anything without affending someone – I think more people are offended by the thought of others being offended.

because trump can suck a big bag o’ dicks!

trump sucks dirty donkey dick

does donald truimp suck cock? – That’s an interesting question. I’d like to see a reporter ask this just so the president would have to answer it. Sure, it’s demeaning to the office of the president, but how much lower can we really go at this point?

trumps big mouth is chewing dick – I wish. At least then he wouldn’t be able to speak.

 

 

Everything’s Shocking


I think I’m going to start a shock rock band. But instead of an elaborate stage show, crazy costumes or playing with my own feces I’m just going to make a big point of not playing “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” and telling everyone I’m offended by the phrase “Merry Christmas.”

I bet I’ll get more death threats than Marilyn Manson tearing up a Bible.

I’ll have to give it a really offensive and controversial name also. Something like Antifa, Barack Obama or Empowered Woman. Maybe just Politically Erect or Donald Trump’s Tiny Penis will do.

Who knows, maybe I’ll learn to play the Star Spangled Banner while kneeling.

A Dissenting Opinion


I’m really starting to resent members of the current Republican administration saying they speak for me. It’s a completely audacious claim. I didn’t vote for them. I don’t agree with them. They don’t speak for me. They should check the settings on their mindreading equipment because they certainly aren’t getting the correct readings from me.

It boggles my mind how they continually brush off any criticism and never acknowledge there is a dissenting opinion to their worldview. Actually, there are several differing opinions, but whenever I check the news or Twitter I see someone rambling that they are “the voice of the people,” or that “there will be a revolution,” or  “violence” or some other such nonsense.

If you win an election by negative three million votes and have a disapproval rate of 60 percent you can’t claim to be the voice of the people.

I love the theory that only “coastal elites” dissent from the administration’s positions. I live far from any ocean and almost make enough money to be considered middle class. It takes me about two hours to get to the Lake Erie coast in the ’98 Toyota Avalon I purchase for $1,200 with nearly 190,000 miles on it. What about that says “coastal elite”?

I was livid when I read an Op-Ed from Congressman Bill Johnson in my local paper saying that everyone is benefiting from the TCJA and anything opposing it was “fake news.”

I responded to him on Twitter, “The TCJA barely made a difference in my paycheck and according to a recent article* has done nothing to increase wages or the standard of living for most Americans.
Are you going to ignore my story? Is my life ‘fake news’?”

He still hasn’t replied to my question.

What I find most confusing are the fans who can’t wrap their heads around why anyone wouldn’t be madly in love with President Trump. Were they asleep for the past 8 years? Did they forget the Obama years already? Did they think because he wasn’t a foreign-born Muslim that everyone would love him?**

To be honest, my dissent has nothing to do with any actions taken (or refrained from) by the chief executive. It’s mainly that I’m a member of the opposing party. I’ve heard people say this makes me a brainwashed mindless sheep and that there is no difference between the two major parties, but there are many easy-to-notice differences between Democrats and Republicans and my political beliefs and values align more closely with those of the former. For good or ill.

I never really understood why people had to believe Obama was Muslim or Kenyan to justify their hatred of him. Nowadays everyone is perfectly comfortable hating Democrats.

I’m not trying to say that my beliefs are better than anyone else’s, just that they’re different from some peoples.

And I’m not sure how I should go about ending this. I didn’t really have anything to say, I just wanted you to know that when you look at what’s going on in my country, my state, my city; it doesn’t reflect what I think or believe. It doesn’t reflect what a lot of other people believe. Hell, it doesn’t even reflect what the majority of people believe.

Even if some will swear the opposite.

 

*My local paper’s website is horrible so I wasn’t able to find the article I was referring. I’m sure it’s easy to find those that support my claim. And, to me, what’s worse is that I’m living it and this asshole doesn’t care.

You Can’t Say Anything Without Offending Someone


I’ve often heard the refrain “you can’t do anything without offending someone.” At first, I just shrugged it off as people being assholes and saying offensive things. I’ve never had much of a problem with it. But lately, I’ve noticed a few cases of political correctness run amok. I like to think of myself as a progressive and generally go with the flow, but there are a few terms I think it’s a shame we have whitewashed.

I mean, we used to be able to call people Nazis, Klansmen and racists. Now we have to call them “alt-right” or “White Nationalists.” It just doesn’t have the same gravitas to it. I mean, maybe we should get rid of Nazi as no one is actively plotting genocide (that we know of), but if you’re wearing a white robe with a pointy hat you’re a Klansman.

And the word ‘racist’ seems to have taken on the same air for whites as the N-word has for blacks. I’ve never seen white people get so offended at being called anything. We have our own racial epithets like ‘honkey,’ ‘birdshit’ and ‘peckerwood,’ but none of them ever elicited the same outrage as ‘spick,’ ‘chink’ or ‘nigger.’

Now people get pissed off about it. Someone will tell you that they never go to a certain Hardees because they have black cooks or that they’re voting for Trump because black on black violence makes it harder for them to do their job getting signatures on petitions, but when you call them racist they’re ready to fight you.

It’s so confusing.

We used to be able to call ignorant bigots like Archie Bunker buffoons, now we have to call them “Officer,” or “Your Honor” or “Mr. President.” It’s such a shame.

It’s weird that all these Trumpkins have such thin skin. Trump made his political name insulting President Obama. He has insulted all of his Republican rivals on the campaign trail, Senator John McCain, Pope Francis, NATO, The Department of Justice, the NFL, Justin Trudeau and one disabled reporter. You’d think a guy that dishes out the insults like that would be able to take them a little better. Oranges are known for their thick skin.

Everyone loved Trump for telling it like it is, but boy do they hate to see him called out.

But that’s a topic for another post.

 

Trump Returns from Putin Meeting with Black Eye


Washington D.C. – President Trump returned from Helsinki on Tuesday, after spending several romantic days with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin. When asked about the shiner on his left eye he insisted he walked into an open door.

The truth was revealed later at a press conference.

“Putin is just under a lot of stress,” said the battered president. “He told me he’ll never do it again and I believe him. You don’t know the pressure he’s under. He has to run not just one country, but two. Do you really think I could do this without him?”

He then returned to the abused woman logic of insisting it was all his fault.

“Look, he started the meeting by saying I couldn’t ask him about Crimea and I did. It’s really all my fault for bringing up that subject as well as asking how we’re going to deal with this whole election meddling thing.”

While I’m sure to those reading this who are not in the US, UK or Ukraine this satirical article is very humorous, I can assure you to many of us in the US it is quite embarrassing.

Build the Wall!


I got the song “Hot Blooded” stuck in my head yesterday, and it was enough to make me completely change my opinion on immigration. After having to deal with that song for about 20 minutes, I now think we should ban all Foreigner from entering this country.

No “Urgent.” No “Juke Box Hero.” No “Double Vision.” No, I don’t want to know what love is. No “Head Games” or “Dirty White Boy.” No “Separate Ways.” Wait… that’s Journey. Oh well, we’ll ban them too. Just until we figure this thing out.

Don’t think “Hot Blooded” stuck in your head is enough to make you want to build a wall and issue a travel ban? Well, check it.

You’ll see.

Trump Promises “Big, Beautiful Scandal”


In the interest of keeping my political rants / satire pieces separate from the music posts I’ve started another blog. If you enjoy this stuff, give the page a like and a follow. If not, just sit back and I’ll get to doing more album reviews soon.

This may not pan out and I might go back to just the one blog, but I wanted to give it a try.

The Suppository

Washington- President Trump promised voters a “big, beautiful scandal” that will be announced by the end of the week.

“It will be, I believe, the biggest scandal in American history,” said Trump. “Bigger than Sally Hemmings, Lincoln’s sexual preference or Calvin Coolidge’s Cocker Spaniel put together. It will be bigger than Watergate. It will be so big that after this we’ll have a new suffix to replace -gate on political scandals.”

President Trump has been facing serious backlash for his firing of FBI Director James Comeyand spilling government secrets to Russian officials. He hopes this new revelation will take the focus off other scandals.

“It’s going to be so yuge that people at my rallies (which are the biggest rallies ever held, bigger than Stalin’s or Castro’s rallies) will begin yelling ‘Lock him up!'” bragged the obviously confused chief executive. “Even sycophants like Paul Ryan and Bob Gibbs are going…
