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 […]

Krugman’s Fantasy World

This is what passes for great thinking these days.  In this article in the Guardian, Paul Krugman essentially says “Hey, we’re all broke and deep in debt. What should we do?” He answers by saying (again, I’m paraphrasing) “Print more money and spend it! Give it away! Go ahead, it won’t hurt a thing! Free […]

I received an email from one of my Senators, John Duncan this evening. He’s touting his sponsorship of a “point of order” on the proposed highway bill, which “called on Congress to face fiscal reality as it considers a two-year highway reauthorization bill.” He says he’s “against the pending highway bill for violating spending restrictions”. […]

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 […]

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 […]

$2.7 Trillion

$2.7 trillion.  That’s how much money Nancy Altman thinks the Federal government has laying around, ready to pay out to Social Security recipients.  I can’t believe she’s really that dumb (she’s able to write) but I have no other explanation.  Here’s a story from the Huffington Post. First, Social Security has its own dedicated income […]

Daily Kos Krap

Ok, I know the Daily Kos is a socialist leaning liberal site, but when this popped up in my newsfeed I just had to comment. First up, here’s their quote (I’m not attempting to verify the quote, an I’m assuming it’s accurate) from Mike Lee (R, Utah) I mean, look, when we’re bringing it about […]

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?
