Batshit Bachmann drops out

Dammit!  Michelle Bachmann dropped out of the race today.  She was so easy to make fun of, just had to read the speeches that day to get new batshit material. Oh well, the whacko side of the Republican party is still well represented with Perry, Gingrich, and Santorum. I’d add Mitt to the list, but […]

Flip Flop Mitt

I ran across a free app in the Android market called Flip-Flop Mitt.  I was actually looking for some documentation on his hold-my-finger-in-the-air-and-see-what-my-position-should-be-today policies when I saw it.  Not bad, but it asks the same 8 questions each time you play. Anyway, I found a few sites that document a few of Mitt Romney’s many […]

Protester of the Year

It would take me many pages to chronicle my thoughts on this – almost as many pages as TIME took to explain their choice. Suffice it to say that I think there’s a huge difference between the Arab Spring protests and the “I want free shit and I want it now” protests in the US. […]

The Illusion of Capital

Ever read one of those articles that gets you more and more excited the further into it you read?  One of those “Oh yeah, that’s what I’ve been thinking, but didn’t know how to express it!” articles? Well, today’s Daily Reckoning was like that for me. In the article The Illusion of Capital,  Dan Amoss […]

California Dream Act

Governor Moonbeam is living up to his name. I ran across this beauty in the LA Times. “The lawmaker who authored the California Dream Act said Saturday that Gov. Jerry Brown has signed the bill allowing Illegal immigrants attending California universities to receive state financial aid.” What part of ILLEGAL don’t they understand? According to […]

10 years after 9/11/01

This is simply a list of facts that have happened since 9/11/2001.  Just in case any paranoid people have forgotten, the first fact I need to mention is that 19 terrorists killed 2,977 people on 9/11. (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casualties_of_the_September_11_attacks)  Now, here’s the list as of today, 9/10/2011. 6,026 US military service members have been killed in […]

Federal spending by year

I’m getting annoyed by the partisan dipshits who have amnesia when it comes to taxes, federal spending, and the deficit, so I decided to post a simple chart for easy reference. All data was taken from the GPO at this link.  As of today (August 6th, 2011) I’m not able to find a verifiable source […]

Debt Ceiling Dummies

So I ran across this article in the LA Times.  As it’s an opinion piece, I am not looking for everything to be substantiated, but when the author started stating some stupid shit, I had to comment on it. The author states “Remember, raising the debt ceiling doesn’t drive the country deeper into debt. The […]

Hannity? Really?

In an effort to get their dumbass bill passed, Republicans are even calling in members of the press like Hannity and Laura Ingram!  Seriously?  If Laura Ingraham and Sean Hannity are able to twist your arm and get you to change your mind, then you never had your mind made up.  And if – after […]

AT&T Sucks

Some background…. I did some research and ordered ATT Uverse service (18 MB down and 1.5mb up – more than double the max DSL speed I could get)  in March.  It was installed Apr 23.  DSL was disconnected (and by disconnected I mean that it quit working and we had no Internet connection) on Apr […]
