Ky Co Clerk, Miley Cyrus VMA's and Peeing in the Pool ... Ya Gotta Luv 'Em, and TTOT!!!

A clerk has refused to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples in Kentucky and the whole world is watching.

Obviously, MTV's Video Music Awards were broadcast on the wrong day!

Some call her a martyr, some a hypocrite, some a tight ass bitch, and so on and so on.

I'm talking about the County Clerk, not Miley Cyrus
 (who hosted the VMA's).

Yet, in consideration of the week and the events we're starting to discuss, 


Yeah, I'm gonna piss some people off with that one!

Seriously, let us look at this scenario.

Miley can wear what she wants, pretty much say what she wants, and dance with anyone she wishes and only suffer minor critique.  Of course, there are those that are making a big thing of the word "mammy" in one of her sketches, but there will always be a few assholes with something to say since the world is now made up of so many "experts" that have never worn the shoes of those they slander.

She's paid to do it and earns her money.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not a fan of hers, but I have to admire her tenacity of seeking and reaching the extreme in most she does.

Now, Kim Davis, the Rowen County Clerk in Kentucky, can do pretty much what she wants, as long as she follows the same guidelines as Miley in as that it's in the performance of her job.  She can tell jokes, compare signatures, check identifications to ensure those in front of her are of age, and issue licenses to those the law states are legally able to receive a marriage license.

She's earning her money ($80,000 a year) by doing this.  Trouble is, she suddenly isn't following the laws that have been set down.  So, in reality, she's really not doing her job.

What if different religions only issued licenses to those that were of the same belief structure?  Wouldn't that be a mess?

Jews could turn down Christians who could turn down Muslims who could turn down Buddhists who could turn down Hindus who could turn down Atheists who would turn down everyone!  

No one would ever get married!  Thousands of lawyers would be out of work as with no weddings come no divorces!  And, we just couldn't have that, could we?  Poor, poor divorce attorneys need an income, too!

Now, no one recognizes how wonderful it is to be married until they're married.  

(Of course, it's too late to do anything about it then, but that's another story.)  

So, when can religion prevent a person from doing their job?

Whether you agree or not, it shouldn't.

If your personal beliefs keep you from performing the responsibilities of your position, then you simply need to find another position!

If you're not a prostitute, I wouldn't pay you for sex.  (Maybe that's why I might as well be abstinent.)  If you're not adept in working with snakes, I'm not going to ask you to extract venom from one. (Unless I don't like you.)   If you're a not a proctologist, I'm not going to ask you to put your fingers up my ... well, you know where.  (However, if I'm paying and you're a prostitute...)

What makes it even worse here is that it is a so-called "public servant" that is refusing to do what she took an oath to do.  "Public" is not just those of your personal belief circle, it's everyone.

I really don't care who gets married to each other.  We all deserve our time in Hell and marriage is one sure way to experience it!  If there were two aliens from the planet Humpa Humpa that became legal residents of the area you are sworn to serve, you gotta do it,
 or get the hell out of Dodge!  

Living in Kentucky, I'm not ashamed of this woman standing up for her beliefs any more than I'm upset over what Miley Cyrus said or wore at the VMA's.  Everyone has a right to believe in what they wish.  I am pissed off that she let those beliefs stop her from doing what my tax dollars pay her do, and in this, brought forth unnecessary negative attention to the state whose laws she swore to abide by.

I wish Kim well, as I do Miley.  Both have performed beyond anyone's expectations.  However, it's time to either earn your pay, or pay for what you fail to earn.  

I hope your time in jail is short and that you get a great job with a church, Kim.  It's really where you belong.

And, Miley, remember, it's not always what you show, but what you either have or don't have to show.  Can you say, "Implants?"

Now, let's get on to 


Damn, what am I going to slam this week?  I've already hit on a couple of real winning topics I could have attacked.  (Talk about poor planning.)  So, now I've got to come up with ten more.  Let's give it a shot and see what I can do!

This week I'm Thankful for .....

1)   ... Donald Trump's inability to stay strong and ignore the Republican Party's request for him to sign a statement in which he would not run for public office if he didn't receive the Republican nomination for President.  By indicating that he will sign this, he has proven himself to be a typical snot nosed politician that needs to cuddle up with those that make him as wealthy as he is.

I'm thankful for this because I was almost believing that someone would finally stand up to the two party waltz and show them a thing or two.  This has simply assured me that my feelings that all politicians, regardless of the party, are scum and only looking to improve their own financial position in life.

2)  ... the continued absence of AllLivesMatter from any of the news broadcasts concerning the murder of police officers. 

 Funny how "all lives don't matter" to them, isn't it?

3)  ... CVS Health Corp announcing Thursday that their decision to stop selling tobacco products led to a 1% drop in smoking in some states where they have a sizable presence.

CVS proves its ego!  Cigarette prices were always outrageous at CVS (as are prescription prices), which meant only two groups purchased them there ... those with extra money or the drunks visiting the huge liquor departments the stores present that didn't care how much they were spending, as long as they didn't get stopped by the cops on the way home.  

4)  ... Spotify for naming Major Lazer's "Lean On" the most streamed Global Song of the Summer.

This once again proves that those that listen to today's music have no taste whatsoever!  
(Where's a good Miley Cyrus song when you need it?)

Please, no Miley songs!  Just joking here!!!

5)  ... Kanye West almost acting like a human being after being introduced by a praising Taylor Swift during this week's VMA's.

Of course, this only lasted for a few seconds before his ego got the better of him and he once again became an asshole announcing that he's running for President in 2020.

6)  ... discussions at the end of Summer about peeing in the pool.  After a season spent splashing in the water, Purdue Professor Ernest R. Blatchley III mentions that excessive peeing in the pool can create a chemical agent known as cyanogen chloride which has been used as a chemical warfare agent.

The only recommendation given is that you always take a break and pee where 
you're supposed to, and make sure all those you're with do the same.  

Ex-President Bush proclaimed, 
"I knew we'd find the WMD's one day, damn it, I knew it!"

7)  ... a U.S. District Judge condemning the NFL's suspension of New England's Tom Brady and throwing the "Deflategate" ruling out.

Now, all you have to say is that you didn't have any knowledge of a violation
 taking place and you get a "Get Out Of Jail" card FREE!!!!

8)  ... U.S. Defense Department laboratories sending out anthrax to five unsuspecting labs this last week.

I can see the Generals up in arms now.  "Why send them Anthrax, damn it???"  Hell, just mix some pee with chlorine and you'll get rid of your competitors the easy way!"

9)  ... "Here's a story, about a famous pitch man, he was fat but slimmed down eating smart,
And a story, about one of his friends, who liked sex with kids and liked to be tied up tight!"
It's a story, about how the cops caught them, saving kids and dogs and other animals, too,
Just a story, it'll make you hungry, ..." so go order a damn pizza!

Okay, Jared will be going to jail.  Twenty years ago, it wouldn't have happened.  Why?  Because his friend's texting the wrong person brought the investigation right to his doorstep.  For that, I'm thankful.  No more having to look at size 895 sized blue jeans and wondering how many kids he made wear them.

What scares me is that one of the kids will suffer a trauma 20 years from today and start killing people with footlong meatball sandwiches!  Oh, the heartburn!

10)  ... AOL's headlines "Dangerous Storm Season May Set New Record In 2015".

And, then again, it might not!

That's going to do it for another edition of TTOT!   Hope you enjoyed!  
If you didn't, I'll understand.  After all, not everyone likes Chocolate Ice Cream
 ... wait a minute ... yes they do!!!!
