Bryan Fischer, Asshole of the Day for April 17, 2014
by TeaPartyCat (Follow @TeaPartyCat)
Bryan Fischer is an asshole. He has been featured on this site many, many times, and has been named Asshole of the Day five times prior to today. Usually though we feature him for his hatred of gays, which is so awful that the Southern Poverty Law Center designated the American Family Association where Fishcer works as a hate group. Yeah.
But Bryan Fischer is more than just a bigot. He can be offensive on many conservative topics, including income inequality. After discussing that the top 1% pay 30% of all federal taxes, Fischer told listeners that the poor ought to kiss the ground that the rich walk on:

the poor and middle class families in this country “ought to be kissing the ground on which [the rich] walk” because it is the top 1% that is paying for EBT cards and food stamps and federal housing.
The rich, Fischer asserted “ought to be given ticker tape parades once a week in all of our major cities to thank them for funding welfare for everybody”

Now of course Fischer doesn’t discuss how the top 1% got all that income— was it by manipulating laws to favor them, creating monopolies to raise prices, inheritance, spending $400 million on an election, or any of that other stuff. He’s not interested in that.
Fischer portrays himself and his conservative beliefs as traditional and Christian. And he has studied religion extensively:

Fischer has an undergraduate degree in philosophy from Stanford University, and holds a graduate degree in theology from Dallas Theological Seminary. Fischer served at the Cole Community Church in Boise, Idaho and founded the Cole Center for Biblical Studies and was the church’s director for thirteen years. Fischer then founded Community Church of the Valley and was senior pastor for twelve years. Before joining the board of directors of American Family Association, Fischer was also executive director of Idaho Values Alliance.
In 2004, he co-founded the Keep the Commandments Coalition, a group dedicated to keeping a Ten Commandments monument in Julia Davis Park in Boise. From 2000 to 2005, he served as a commissioner for the city’s Park and Recreation Department.

But apparently when doing all that Bible study, Fischer missed the parts where Jesus praised the poor and vilified the rich.
The suggestion that the poor should kiss the ground the rich walk on should be offensive to any Christian. And that Fischer represents himself as a Christian and has studied the Bible extensively and says this, only makes it more offensive. So, for turning Jesus’ own worldview of rich and poor upside down to give comfort to the rich, Bryan Fischer is the Asshole of the Day.
It is Bryan Fischer’s 6th time being named Asshole of the Day. Previous wins were for saying
claiming the Founding Fathers only meant to protect Christianity, not other religions
claiming the Senate had been intimated into silence by the bullies and bigots of Big Gay
claiming Obama was photoshopped into the Situation Room photo of the Bin Laden Raid
claiming that homosexuals are just like Nazis because most Nazis were homosexual
people who believe in evolution should be banned from holding office

Wow. asshole of the day indeed.

The IronMash Super Hero Series - Created by BossLogic

What if Iron Man made suits for other super heroes? This series by Boss Logic might give us a pretty good idea. Check out his website or Facebook for more of his IronMash series, and to keep up on his other awesome work.

The Batman kit looks sick. The others too, but I would like to think that were the DC and Marvel universes to exist together, Bruce Wayne and Tony Stark would have socialized enough for this to happen.

Can you guess which one is LTE and which one is the Candlewood Suites Wifi?

Let’s start with what in the hell they are doing to the routing that would cause Speedtest to think Arizona is the closest test server?

Lol. Ray.

Link Tony Arnold: Microsoft: Redux (Build 2014)

Apple (80,000 employees) is 20,000 Employees short of Microsoft’s count (100,000+), and though it seems like Microsoft has more breadth, I don’t know that things like the Xbox team and System Center teams aren’t balanced by the army of non-engineering employees Apple has manning the retail stores (that being just one example).

So yeah, I would tend to go one step further and say Microsoft does invest more resources in its developer tools and particularly the Azure platform. Microsoft has historically dumped untold sums of money into “the web”; throwing everything they can at the wall hoping something sticks, and I think they finally found a niche to exploit with Azure. Their engineering talent pool, combined with the desire for everything to be connected all the time, has allowed them to move rapidly into a space with A) Growth Potential, and B) a set of problems they are uniquely suited to solve. Amazon laid a lot of the groundwork for web services to come along and compete with, but I think as Azure continues to build steam, we are going to see them surpass Amazon.

Urgent security update

Bad news: A major vulnerability has been disclosed for the technology that powers encryption across the majority of the internet. That includes Tumblr. Our team took immediate action to fix the issue, but you should still take some time to change your password, not only here but on any other sites you visit. 

You should also strongly consider enabling two-factor authentication. It’ll go a long way to ensure that no one besides you can access your account. Thanks, and take care.
