Watch it Now; Out of My Mind for 31 July 2009

Lucky you; couldn’t do this on Blogger:

Why the Big Media so-called journalism — inanity is a far better word — won’t be missed: This idiocy. Meanwhile, the Big Media hasn’t done their “Infinite Debt” yet. I mean, the debt industry is or should be a huge story and the Big Media are… sucking off the Establishment, doing the nation a disservice.

Go here and do this. Dunno that it will help but surely it can’t hurt.

Gotta love here! Sarah Palin is a serial quitter. And Faux Nooz viewers want her to be a homemaker.

Professor Krugman has the longish version explaining the necessity of the public option. Remember: There’s no reform possible without a public option. No public option means we will be forced to give more money to the private insurers who can deny coverage we pay for with our premiums.

No shit?! Karl Rove was involved in this?? Who woulda thought… (thanks to the water-carriers)….

Query: If Canada’s healthcare system’s so awful, why do Canadians have a greater life expectancy?

Asshole:

Hmmm…. Obama fails, popularity drops.

Amazon sued for stealing a copy of “1984” with student’s school notes incorporated. That’s what it gets for taking the stupid and lazy solution…. (More here.)

Fight the system.

This is your project for the weekend.

Your dog really wants you to buy him this. (Although for all I know, you know someone who light like it for himself.)

Damn Right I’m Out of My Mind for 30 July 2009

Mr. President and members of Congress, Al has a message for all of you....
Mr. President and members of Congress, Al has a message for all of you....

These rightist assholes want to use tax money to destroy my family and families like ours, who have adopted children from other nations: Families for Orphans Act, House Bill 3070 sponsored by Congresswoman Diane Watson (D-CA) and Congressman John Boozman (R-AR), companion/related Senate Bill 1458 sponsored by Senators Mary L Landrieu (D-LA) and James Inhofe (R-OK). Why the bill sucks is at the above link or here. Yeah, yeah, I know that the rightists’ support for family values is solely lip service, pandering to know-nothings. Still, when its, or at least comes close to home….

And the Foreign Adopted Children Equality Act (FACE Act), introduced in the Senate as S. 1359 (Senators Landrieu and Inhofe) and in the House as H.R. 3110 (Rep. Watson and Boozman), sucks mightily too.

Mr. President, a grateful nation thanks you -- for nothing.
Mr. President, a grateful nation thanks you -- for nothing. Making George W. Bush look less odious every day....

Barack Obama: Two-time loser. Refuses to fix the system that allowed if not enabled the global financial crisis and now has lost healthcare reform (assuming he wanted actual reform as opposed to a means to get more money to the insurers). I say real reform is dead. It’s not going to happen so stop with the hoping. (And yes, I’ll be as ecstatic as the morning after last election day to be wrong.) Elected with so much good will if not a mandate and has done absolutely nothing significant with it.

Fact: Medicare sucks fiscally less than private insurance.

Scumbags: Every so-called journalist who reports crap like this without prominently noting that the person they’re writing about is a complete hateful idiot unworthy of a public platform or the publicity they’re giving him. Too much fact for you, Mr. and Ms. Reporter? Then I don’t care if your employer goes out of business and that you never work in your chosen profession again. And this how low the so-called journalists are going, the scope of their failure and disservice to our nation. Really, who needs them? Not in theory but in practice?

You must love this: The sellers of crap mortgages make more money ensuring that the loans go bad than refinancing because of fixed fees. It’s the new profit: Just extort unconscionable fees. And our leaders clearly approve of this.

Corrupted watchdogs?

Oooh, EMI is trying to kill itself! It’s like soon the only way to get recorded music will be by stealing it….

The books you buy, the records and films you buy — why in God’s name should you think you’d have them forever to own and use and enjoy? If you believe (or think) that, the sellers say you’re wrong.

Oh, no!!! Reverend Ike is dead, and with him, a wee piece of my youth!

Don’t let the kids see this! The case for bad driving!

Thank you, global warming, the Northwest Passage is a reality at last!

Why people find assholes so credible. You too can be Bill O’Reilly or Rush or Glenn Beck.

Douchebag: If you had any doubts about Maureen Dowd, you’re right (me too). She’s well past her expiration date.

Racist cop asshole.

Assholes: The wingnuts and Lester Brickman have no problem with wasting court resources to enable a company’s advertising claims. They just don’t want courts used for, oh, individuals’ redress.

Sad but all true....

Syfy. WTF? How stupid does one have to be to come up with that stupidity and to sign off on it? And what’s the pay? That kind of stupidity is endemic (fallout from the Raygun era)….
