Worst president in my lifetime

This was a post I did on Facebook back in July on Bush I’s birthday. I decided it needed some  updating because I really hadn’t thought about all the factors that should go into deciding the title of worst president. Dumbass Dubya has a lock on the #1 slot, but there can be some legitimate […]

Fiscal Insanity

Ran across this post in today’s Daily Reckoning. Those of you who like to think we can go on printing money without consequences should read – not just this article, but basically everything they publish.  I wouldn’t call it “doomsday” stuff, but predicting financial collapse for those who think money can be summoned into existence […]

Romney edges closer to batshit crazy

The Republicans have certainly had their share of experience with candidates dropping off the deep end into “batshit crazy” territory. Exhibit A was Bachmann, then Perry, then Gingrich – and Santorum has always been borderline lunatic – but for all his faults Romney at least seemed sane. He must be getting desperate to connect to […]

Buffett’s view on gold

I posted this last April, as I heard lot’s of people taking about a bubble in gold, and how gold “doesn’t provide a dividend” and how gold “doesn’t make a profit”.   After reading Warren Buffett’s annual letter to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders today, I felt compelled to update the numbers, as Buffett dissed gold pretty bad. […]

Worst. President. Ever.

Just a quick Worst. President. Ever. update. Today we’re looking at the debt competition category.  (All data is from http://www.savingsbonds.gov/NP/BPDLogin?application=np) Total debt, last day before Bush’s first budget, 9/30/2001 – $5,807,463,412,200.06 Total debt, last day before Obama’s first budget, 9/30/2009 – $11,909,829,003,511.70 Total debt as of yesterday evening, 1/17/2011 – $15,236,288,061,558.65 Bush total debt increase […]

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 […]

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 […]

Stop the insanity

I was in an argument – umm, I mean a discussion – with some family and friends on facebook today, and I was looking up some facts to show just how fucking stupid Bush, Obama, our congress, and the Federal Reserve super-duo of Greenspan/Bernanke have been over the past 10 years, and I decided WTF? […]

Democrats and Republicans

This is from an old (sometime in the 1980′s) Dave Barry column, but I ran across it today and I still find it funny.  It’s about the difference between Democrats and Republicans.  Unfortunately for our country, it’s pretty close to the truth…. “The Democrats seem to be basically nicer people, but they have demonstrated time […]
