Meet Chaz the Intolerant Chick-fil-A Chicken
“Oh, Conan. How do we love you? Let us count the ways. Always ready to introduce some bizarre idea into a sketch on his show, the TV host has now introduced Chaz, the Intolerant Chick-fil-A Chicken as a response to all the hullabaloo over the faith-based fast food chain’s open intolerance toward marriage equality and homosexuality; and the Jim Henson Company’s decision to take its Muppet characters out of its kids’ meals.

As Coco explains in jest: “This has not stopped Chick-fil-A. They have just come out with a new puppet to spread the word about their delicious chicken sandwiches—and homophobia.”"

As a huge Muppet fan I couldn’t be happier about the Henson company ending it’s business relationship with Chick-fil-A. I like how the Conan show made the chicken look very Muppet like. The “eat up you godless sodomites” was my favorite line.

From CBS:
Running mate revealed: Green Party running mate, that is
“On the day before the Green Party’s presidential nominating convention, presidential candidate Jill Stein revealed her running mate to CBS News exclusively: homeless activist Cheri Honkala.

“She leads one of the country’s largest multiracial, intergenerational movements led by people in poverty, fighting poverty, homelessness and foreclosures,” Stein told CBS news. Honkala, a mother of two, and the national coordinator for the Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign, spent some of her days homeless. She ran for sheriff of Philadelphia on the Green Party line in 2011 and based her campaign on a platform of halting evictions.”

I had planned to vote Green last presidential election but once McCain picked Palin I decided to vote for Obama. With Obama signing the NDAA into law I’m not voting for him again. I’ve decided to vote third party and am thinking of going Green this year. Two female candidates…wouldn’t that be amazing if they actually won? A girl can dream.

From Common Dreams:
Unrest in Anaheim Continues: Riot Police Arrest Protesters Outside of Disneyland
“Protesters continued to express outrage in Anaheim, Calif. on Sunday in the ninth consecutive day of protests following two fatal police shootings last week. Police once again exhibited a heavy handed response to the protests, arriving in paramilitary riot gear and blocking protesters outside the gates of Anaheim’s Disneyland Resort, leading to nine arrests.

Unrest in Orange County’s largest city erupted last week following the killing of unarmed Manuel Diaz, 25, on July 21, and the killing of Joel Acevedo, 21, the following night, both by Anaheim police.”

The pics and video coming out of Anaheim are intense. It looks more like a war zone than a community right now. Signs of the impending police state? Eek.

And finally here’s some conspiracy theories on the Colorado Batman shooter. Now I hesitated to post about it at first because not everything has a sinister conspiracy behind it. But two interesting facts really make me suspect all is not as it seems in the Holmes case.

First up is the eyewitness testimony contradicts the official story. You can watch that account here. And second Holmes’ father is a senior citizen at FICO and is supposed set to testify at the LIBOR banking scandal hearings. Isn’t that interesting? You can watch more about that here. Of course Alex Jones has a lot to say about this. You can watch a video of him talking about it here.
