Conservatives have no interest in reaching out to minorities.

It takes an extraordinary fool to vote for a man that is so clearly as stupid as Rep. Steve King. I'm guessing that the Republicans in Iowa (especially in the districts that produced Rep. King and the equally witless Sen. Charles Grassley) would rather vote for a dunce than a Democrat no matter how empty their heads are or how much they harm their families, friends and neighbors. The latest fecal matter spewed out by this moron:
Rep. King with Reps. Louis Gomert (R-Haldol) & Michelle Bachmann (R-Thorazine)Rep. Steve King (R-IA) on Sunday said that he opposed protecting LGBT people in hate crimes legislation because their attributes were not “immutable,” and so they couldn’t prove their sexual orientation.During an interview with WHO-TV, King expressed regret that Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) had vetoed a bill that would have allowed business owners to use their religion as reason to discriminate against LGBT people.“You’re an individual entrepreneur with God-given rights that our founders defined in the Declaration of Independence,” he explained. “You should be able to make your own decisions with what you do in that private business.”King acknowledged that the public accommodation section of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protected individuals based on race, religion and other characteristics.“And there’s nothing mentioned in there on self-professed behavior,” he said, referring to homosexuality. “And that’s what they’re trying to perfect, is special rights for self-professed behavior. And I think it’s difficult for us to define a law that would protect self-professed behavior.”But when asked if his use of the term “self-professed behavior” meant that being LGBT was a choice, King said that he wasn’t sure.“I think it exists across the continuum in some type of a curve, and I don’t know what that curve actually looks like,” the Iowa Republican opined. “I think some’s nature and some’s nurture. Some might be purely each. But I think a lot of it is a combination of nature and nurture.”“And the one thing I referenced when I say ‘self-professed,’ how do you know who to discriminate against?” he continued. “They about have to tell you. And are they then setting up a case, is this about bringing a grievance or is it actually about a service that they’d like to have?”“And doesn’t free enterprise provide that service if the demand is there? Someone can open up a cake shop, can’t they?”In the end, King argued that LGBT people didn’t deserve equal protection because their sexual orientation could not be “independently verified” and can be “willfully changed.” “And when we get into area of hate crimes legislation, I’ve opposed that because you’re punishing people for what you think went on in their head at the time they perpetuated a crime,” he said. “And it’s a murky area of the law. We’ve not gone that way until the modern era, and I think it gets very messy.”

...and having someone posting photos.
iPhone, meet your new wallpaper. If you put an empty Corona bottle in his hand and replaced that ugly ass casino carpet with dead grass, that would be my uncle at the end of every family gathering. Shit, that’s me at the end of every gathering.Coochies got wet and laughs came flying out of mouths at Caesars Windsor in Windsor, Ontario, Canada last night when George Lopez’s drunk, juicy, bloated gut hung out as he took a little sweet nectar-induced nap on the floor. That picture is the reason why I’m choking on cackles today. CTV News says that police put George in handcuffs at 10:49pm for being messy and drunk in public.TMZ says that George wasn’t charged with anything, but he was thrown in the drunk tank to dry out. George performed at Caesars right before he did the funniest thing he’s ever done and he’s supposed to perform again there tonight.

I can't imagine anyone buying one of these in a store unless they intended to buy a cake that looks like a giant sugared chocha with a little plastic Jesus in it. Good grief!

I was in the mood for a nice pot roast this weekend but as I was going to be in and out of the house on Sunday I decided to use the slow cooker instead of using the Dutch oven. I had tried the Campbell's Slow Cooker Sauce for tacos and found it to be a great method of making tender, delicious taco meat instead of using ground beef. This time I tried their Tavern Style Pot Roast recipe and right off the bat I'll tell you it was delicious.
The recipe on the package says to just pop a 2-3 pound chuck roast into the slow cooker, pour the sauce over the top and cook for 8 hours on low. Being a recipe tinkerer, I had to change that a little bit. I seared the roast in a hot dutch oven until it was good and browned on all sides and put the roast into the slow cooker. Then I poured the package of sauce over the top of the roast. I then took 1 pound of sliced crimini mushrooms and quickly sauteed them in the Dutch oven just to get rid of some of their moisture and topped the roast with the mushrooms. I did follow the recommended timing and cooked the roast for 8 hours. I took the roast out of the slow cooker, tented it to keep it warm and strained the juices into a fat separator and reserved the mushrooms. Once the fat had risen to the top of the separator I poured the juices into a saucepan and reduced them to thicken them slightly and added back the mushrooms. The result was a seriously tasty pot roast with a hearty mushroom flavor and a slight acidity from the cooking sauce. I served it with sour cream and chive mashed potatoes and acorn squash.
I would definitely use this product again and will continue to try the other flavors.
