The non-partisan site that calls people out for being fools

David and Victoria Beckham are now "bad role models" for having a 4th child. (Seriously. You can't make this stuff up.)

Just when you think people couldn't get any more absurd, the CEO of UK-based Optimum Population Trust Simon Ross decides to trash talk the Beckhams for having a fourth child. He claims it's irresponsible.

"The Beckhams, and others like London mayor Boris Johnson, are very bad role models with their large families. There's no point in people trying to reduce their carbon emissions and then increasing them 100% by having another child," he said. "England is one of the most densely populated countries in the world and the fastest-growing in population terms in Europe. In 15 years we'll have an extra 10 million people here."

I can see an argument for large families who aren't able to support themselves and have to rely on the government to provide for basic necessities like food. But the argument that carbon emissions will increase by a well-off family having an extra child is just insane. Thanks to the Beckham's prosperity, there's a good chance their kids will go to great schools, get great educations, and potentially have a significantly positive impact on society. Their 4th child might end up curing cancer, or who knows, maybe finding a way to reduce carbon emissions through science, something that would never be possible if the Beckhams were only allowed to have two kids (as is the goal of Ross' organization).


Nancy Pelosi is "almost too busy" to listen to the debt limit meetings

Nancy Pelosi is back for her fourth appearance here on Douche of the Day, this time for two reasons:

  • She thinks she's too important to do her job. (Check out 0:55 in the video below.)
  • She declared the Barack Obama has more patience than Job. Yes, Biblical Job (pronounced (Joe - b), from the Old Testament. To put it in perspective, Job was a rich guy with a wife and ten kids. They all died, he lost everything he had, and was covered with a multitude of diseases, but he never once accused God of any injustice (the patience Pelosi is referring to). (Read a summary of the story here.)

The arrogance of this woman is unbelievable. Of course, we all remember this moment:

I can't wait until she's voted out of office.

To be honest, the fact that Pelosi even knew the story of Job is kind of amazing.


Being successful is now a bad thing: The NJEA attacks, lies about Chris Christie in this TV ad.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is currently getting railed by the New Jersey Education Association. But their angle is to attack his prosperity. The attack ad begins like this:

Chris Christie seems to like the company of millionaires. His Chief of Staff, his State Treasurer, even his Acting Commissioner of Education, all millionaires. Christie himself has a net worth of over $3 million.

What the commercial fails to cover is the fact that Christie is a self-made millionaire. Christie is a guy who clearly knows how to make money and keep his personal finances in check. That's why he's still worth close to $4 million, long after earning the bulk of it in his private life. The whole point of the commercial is to attack his success. The same goes for his cabinet. They're attacking a guy just for being successful, and I find that outrageous. They are trying to punish success.

Since when did being successful become a bad thing? It never ceases to amaze me how the people attacking him don't understand that self-made millionaires are usually the most qualified for the job. They understand things like economics and balancing a budget. They did it in their personal lives, so they have a good chance they can do the same in their government positions. The debate between creating wealth vs. inheriting wealth is best summed up by this statement:

"If you didn't earn it yourself, you're probably going to squander it because you don't appreciate it. You don't understand what it took to get there and you have no concept." -Pat Gray

That's why it's important to have successful people in politics. They know what it took to get where they are and are more capable of handling money properly. Because they've done it before.

Side note: the commercial goes on to say that he cut taxes for millionaires. This statement is flat out lie. The democrats proposed a law that would raise taxes on millionaires which he refused to sign. I'm sorry, but a veto of a tax increase bill targeting millionaires does NOT equate to a tax cut.

The NJEA is a group of corrupt liars and it's dispicable that they're trying to bring down a succesful guy simply for being succesful.

Slippery slope: Judge sentences woman for spanking her kid

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (CBS) -- A judge in Corpus Christi, Texas had some harsh words for a mother charged with spanking her own child before sentencing her to probation.

"You don't spank children today," said Judge Jose Longoria. "In the old days, maybe we got spanked, but there was a different quarrel. You don't spank children."

Rosalina Gonzales had pleaded guilty to a felony charge of injury to a child for what prosecutors had described as a "pretty simple, straightforward spanking case." They noted she didn't use a belt or leave any bruises, just some red marks.


This is unbelievable. What gives Judge Jose Longoria the right to dictate how a woman's child should be disciplined? Does he not realize that our country is in the state that it's in today because of people like him who didn't discipline their children when they were young?

Sure, we all have different parenting styles, but unless this woman was clearly abusing her child - which it doesn't sound like she was - Judge Longoria has no right to sentence Ms. Gonzales.

Judge Longoria should be unseated for violating the personal rights of this woman and for being a giant douchebag. His job is to uphold the Constitution, not impose his beliefs on others when they're not rooted in the Constitution he's supposed to uphold and protect.

The problem with Judge Longoria's descision was best summed up by a commenter: "The nanny state is here. This is a slippery slope!"

Indeed it is.

Anthony Weiner need a conscience, not sex rehab

I don't need to explain why Anthony Weiner is a douche. Aside from his current tweeting scandal, there have been many times in the past where I should have written about him for idiotic things he's said in Congress. But I'm not writing about either of those incidents today. I'm writing about the fact that Weiner refuses to step down from office, despite a call from Nancy Pelosi, the most corrupt of them all, and has decided to check himself into a treatment center for sex addictions.

This is nothing more than a PR move. Anthony Weiner knows he doesn't need to go to rehab for his "problem". He just needs to take responsibility and learn how to control himself like every other man in the world. The only reason he's checking himself into treatment is because he thinks it will make him look better in the public eye. He's trying to take a page out of the Tiger Woods playbook of damage control.

But the difference between Tiger Woods and Anthony Weiner is that Weiner is an elected official who is supposed to represent our country. What Weiner really should do is step down. Our Congress is supposed to be made up of upstanding citizens, above reproach and free from any sort of scandal, whether sexual or fiscal.

Can you imagine what our founding fathers would think if they saw what is going on today? Weiner has clearly shown that he does not represent his district, unless his district is primarily made up of pervy men who don't know how to control themselves.

Anthony Weiner is a douche for refusing to step down and let someone with more morality step in and represent his district. Weiner has ruined his reputation and it's something from which he can never recover.
