It Can't Happen Here


KTVX, the ABC affiliate in Utah, is refusing to run an anti-war ad featuring Cindy Sheehan because it was deemed an "inappropriate commercial advertisement for Salt Lake City."

Since when are casino ads for Wendover and the nearby Indian reservations, plus the multiplicity of spots for skanky beer, unhealthy food and all kinds of pills to grow your hair, trim your fat, or enlarge your penis (you know that always smiling guy commercial for male "enhancement") any more "appropriate" than an anti-war ad? Peace versus belch?

In a statement Saturday evening explaining its decision, KTVX said that after viewing the ad, local managers found the content "could very well be offensive to our community in Utah, which has contributed more than its fair share of fighting soldiers and suffered significant loss of life in this Iraq war."

Oh conservative, oh so loyal Utah, you've been shown to be what ye are: a stupid witless cheering section for Empire, merrily sending your sons & daughters off to fight the Arabs, like good little obedient sheep in the unholy service of your false god Moloch. Now, it suddenly seems, you wish to shun the offensive stench from your nostrils that your God is now rebuking you with. It says in your book do not worship false idols like the gods of war. Your God is about to exact a terrible price for your unyielding fealty to Moloch. Prepare to be judged. So it has been said in YOUR book.

is THEIR book and MY BOOK the same book?
when you send me stuff about UTAH, i assume,ignorantly or not, that you speak of MORMONS.
MY book is NOT the SAME BOOK as theirs.
as we've spoken before, the 1st state to attempt to secede, in my opinion, will be UTAH.
one of the reasons being that THEIR BOOK
is not the BOOK of any others in this country (world).
this is not to disagree with any of the words in THEIR book.
just to make sure that MY BOOK and THEIR BOOK are not confused in any way by those who may think, incorrectly, that CHRISTIANITY is CHRISTIANITY is CHRISTIANIY.
my MOTENEGRIN granparents said tha we, orthodox christians, were "veliki slavi"
the true believers or true celebrators and that the OTHERS were "krivi putcani"
those who had taken the "crooked path".
whether i believe this or not is one thing. but i sure as heck feel from this BLUE state on the EAST coast that a hell of alot people in the state of UTAH are "crooked path taken" sheep.
backing our troops is an ABSOLUTE,backing the rich, white, two faced assholes that sent them ther is something altogether different.
maybe they're not sheep,maybe i'm thinking of lemmings.

Books? It ain't the book; it's the body-panties. Go ahead, try to look cool in a body-panty.

I'd be glad to send you some funny undies to look cool in. We got us a store here dat sells 'em.

Darrell---As far as a book or THE BOOK, I was referring to was the King James Bible, which I know is not the Orthodox book. I was talking to the majority Mormon faithful with whom I share a beautiful and bountiful state with.

They are indeed, by your criteria, people of the crooked path. They need testifying to in these latter days of Western hemogomy, as to who is true and who is not.

Jonah be on his way to Nineveh Oh Lard in Hebbin'!

Or as Frank Zappa penned a quarter century ago:

You can’t run a country
By a book of religion
Not by a heap
Or a lump or a smidgeon
Of foolish rules
Of ancient date
Designed to make
You all feel great
While you fold, spindle
And mutilate
Those unbelievers
From a neighboring state

To arms! to arms!
Hooray! that’s great
Two legs ain’t bad
Unless there’s a crate
They ship the parts
To mama in
For souvenirs: two ears (get down!)
Not his, not hers, (but what the hey? )
The good book says:
(it gotta be that way!)
But their book says:
Revenge the crusades...
With whips ’n chains
’n hand grenades...
Two arms? two arms?
Have another and another
Our God says:
There ain’t no other!
Our God says
It’s all okay!
Our God says
This is the way!

It says in the book:
Burn ’n destroy...
’n repent, ’n redeem
’n revenge, ’n deploy
’n rumble thee forth
To the land of the unbelieving scum on the other side
’cause they don’t go for what’s in the book
’n that makes ’em bad
So verily we must choppeth them up
And stompeth them down
Or rent a nice french bomb
To poof them out of existance
While leaving their real estate just where we need it
To use again
For temples in which to praise our god
(cause he can really take care of business!)
