Blowhard of the Day



Meet Kentucy State Representative Tom Riner. Rep. Riner is also Rev. Riner, which would explain his gamewinning plan to win today's "Blowjob" (so named for outstanding work in being a ridiculous blowhard).

How did Rep/Rev Riner reach this summit? For raising hell (irony intended) about Kentucky's state Department of Homeland not crediting God for keeping the state safe.

Now, for those of us who live in reality, we know the only things that would possibly blow up in Kentucky are meth labs. In fact, the single object of any strategic value in the entire state is Ashley Judd. But the Rep/Rev has God and the law (a ridiculously unconstitutional one) on his side.

Seems the Rep/Rev was instrumental in getting a law passed that actually made this nonsense a statutory requirement. The law was signed by former Gov. Ernie Fletcher, who prominently credited God in annual reports to state leaders. Apparently, new Gov. Steve Beshear's administration is a little too concerned with reality and failed to credit God in its 2008 Homeland Security report issued last month. And those that want to have their cake and make you sit through their stupid party then act like your enjoying eating their cake too are pissed. I mean what did they go through all the trouble of passing that unconstitutional piece of crap for anyway. You know, the law that:

...organized the Homeland Security office first lists Homeland
Security's duty to recognize that government itself can't secure the state
without God, even before mentioning other duties, which include distributing
millions of dollars in federal grants and analyzing possible threats.
The
religious language was tucked into a floor amendment by Riner and passed the
General Assembly overwhelmingly. It lists the office's initial duty as
"stressing the dependence on Almighty God as being vital to the security of the
Commonwealth."
Included in the law is a requirement that the office must post
a plaque at the entrance to the state Emergency Operations Center with an
88-word statement that begins, "The safety and security of the Commonwealth
cannot be achieved apart from reliance upon Almighty God."


By the way, this douche-bag is a Democrat too. So don't just think this nonsense is limited to those who think the elephant is the king of the jungle.

Tis' the season, folks. You will see plenty of this crap in the news. Our favorite blowhard, Bill O'Reilly is currently busy blasting officials in Olympia, WA, for of all things, respecting the Constitution and laws of the United States (things I'm pretty sure they took an oath to do).

You ever notice how people who are concerned with religion and want to know what religion you are, always want to hear that you believe the same thing as them or they get upset/think less of you?

As my man Abe Lincoln said, Abe Lincoln--that's my man:

"When I do good, I feel good; when I do bad, I feel bad. That's my religion."

Well, said Abe. Well said.

While I think that God deserves credit for most things in the world, fortunately, he doesn't ask for the credit...
