Mike Malloy made of the same crappy fiber as Rush. L.

:evil: No matter what you believe or how you vote there is an ass in every group.

Syndicated liberal talker MIKE MALLOY may have his own controversy, as LIMBAUGH supporters point out that MALLOY made comments FRIDAY that painted victims of that day's deadly tornadoes as "little grease spots on the pavement" put there by "their God."

MALLOY's comments, reported by BRIAN MALONEY's RADIO EQUALIZER site, included, "They keep being killed, you know, their God, if this is where they want to look at it, keeps smashing them into little grease spots on the pavement in -- uh -- uh -- in -- in, you know, in ALABAMA and MISSISSIPPI and ARKANSAS and, uh, GEORGIA and, uh, OKLAHOMA, you know, the Bible Belt. 'Where they ain't going to let no goddamn science get in the way -- it says in the Bible, blah blah blah blah blah!'

"So, according to their way of thinking, you know, God, with his omnipotent thumb, reaches down here tonight and so far tonight has smashed about 20 people into a grease spot on Highway 12 or whatever the hell highway they live next to. It's sad, it's so sad for this kind of nonsense."

Not everyone in the south is antiscience. And not every Christian in the south is a fundamentalists or evangelical. No matter what someone's beliefs, this is a painful time for those who lost loved ones. I can't help but wonder how I would feel if it was someone I loved who had been killed during the storms.

I've never heard of Mike Malloy. Is he popular?

Pat Robertson said something similar. Except Malloy was apparently being sarcastic. Robertson was serious.

Mike Malloy is a fucking idiot. That's just callous. Of course the article seems to have taken what he said out of context, and I'm willing to hear it in context, but still, holy shit.

Also, Highway 12 is an actual highway. In North Carolina. On the Outer Banks, which saw exactly zero tornadoes.

I used to listen to him years ago when he was on WLS in Chicago. I can kinda see where he was probably attempting to go with this ("if they insist it's all just God, why does God let bad things happen to good people?") but yeah, definite fail if it's as reported (I didn't hear it, or the complaints about it).

Years ago he did have some good things on his show, that I listened to. I remember he would have quite a few shows about the School of the Americas protests, and debunking of some right-wing economics (that was mostly what I listened to). He would also occasionally have a show where any and all callers would be given precisely one minute to rant on about whatever they want, without intervention (other than the presumed usual 7-second delay kill switch if someone were to yell swears on the air, surely) and that could get kinda... entertaining as people with all sorts of views and some just plain "are you on Earth? At all?" people would call in.

      Guess I should update again? Frieda (Kiki, we renamed her) is here since the end of February 2021. She came with a bunch of problems, but is the best dog ever and is doing better every day. But we do now know how a dog with ptsd looks like. For real, not joking. If she is triggered during the day, she wakes up screaming at night. Not like dogs dream, but literally screaming. Other than that she went with us on countless trips, loves hiking and even cable cars. She is one heck of a fearless dog in situations who do not remind her of her old life. 
      My Grandpa passed away last May and I'm still grieving a lot. After sharing a house with my grandparents for over 30 years it is just horrible to lose one of them. Even though it was his decision and he got to go like he wanted. At home, in his bed during the night without doctors. He would have need more care and he did not want more care. So after turning 90 he decided to let go and became weaker and weaker. 
      In other news my dad stops working for good on April 1st. Retirement time. Keep my Mum and myself in your prayers. We really do not want him at home all the time. Haha!

      I don't always make good decisions for myself due to severe depression but I did today actively decide not to do something that might have been detrimental for me and am very proud of myself.

      Well, this is weird. At some point, recently, I broke my wrist. I had to get a Dexa-scan today (put it off for years) and along with some bone loss, damn I had it a few minutes ago… the results said, “Fracture risk is moderate, and the patient has a significant wrist fracture. Treatment is advised.”  my left wrist aches a little but not near as much as my back, feet, knees or fingers, damn RA. I have no idea how it happened. I haven’t fallen in 2 years, haven’t banged or bumped…  the dr will call tomorrow and we’ll get  this straightened out.

      I got my stickers today after renewing my vehicle registration. 
      Just reminded me again how different Minnesota is from Iowa.  Since I didn't register my vehicle in January last year, I got a sticker for the month since all MN plates are made with JAN printed in the lower left hand corner.  They also require people to put stickers on both the front and back plates, as opposed to Iowa that just want's the single sticker on the rear plate.
      Oh well, considering how MN is trying to move into the 2020s while Iowa is trying to lurch the fuck back to the 1840s, the type and number of license plate stickers is really a minor thing.
