The time not to become a father is eighteen years before a war. — E. B. White
The squeaking wheel doesn’t always get the grease. Sometimes it gets replaced. — Vic Gold
Computer games don’t affect kids, I mean if Pac Man affected us as kids, we’d all be running around in darkened rooms, munching pills and listening to repetitive music. — Marcus Brigstocke
I wished the buck stopped here, as I could use a few. — Anonymous
Did you know this? Obomba hates civil liberties.
When the GOP finds Ronnie Raygun to be nowhere near conservative enough, that shows just how irrelevant and crazed the party is and it should be treated acordingly. Of course, Obomba and the elite media disagree vehemently… but in a rational world….
How the treasonous America-haters win. Actually, this is wrong. They way they win is: people are exposed to the relentless flood of their disproveable lies and accept and believe them. The Bible had it sort of right: the suffering caused by false beliefs….
Is this the last sane and functional democracy? (First hint: It’s not the US.)
Healthy democratic action. Hint: it didn’t happen here. For that matter, it can’t happen here, I’m sure.
Is this scary, sketchy, weird, of no concern? Me, it involves, essentially, expanded privatization of national security, so it ain’t the last choice….
As Mick Jagger said in a different context entirely, Watch it!
The societally destructive triumph of mediocrity; why the next generation of journalists will even worse than the present one. Apparently, one must choose between some sort of brilliance and needing to be something of a wuss and in this era, the mediocre wuss is preferred over abrasive competence-plus….
How the lenders really fucked themselves good. And, I’m sorry to say, this is the only true relief overwhelmed, underwater homeowners will be getting. There will be nothing from Obomba, and if there is, it’s purpose will be to get the victims to pay more to the lenders. (Oops, we have that so-called reform — HAMP!) More good news on the housing front here: it’s still going down the toilet. Thanks, Obomba!
And what has empowering the GOP gotten Obomba? Hated by the Republicans. Too.
Reminder: Pat Robertson is a huge asshole, specially on Haiti. (Floyd H. Flake is another great Christian paradigm.)
Another success story for the abuse of debt. This is what happens when there’s too much loose cash in the financial system — and Team Obomba thinks this is a good thing….
Looks like my next senator’s gonna be a Republican. Thank you, Obomba and Harold Ford. Birds of a feather….
Assholes: Amazon and it’s great big eff u to innocent customers. Of course, in a corporatist society where everyone’s greatest goal is the accumulation of wealth, no corporation can be perfect — yes, I love you, Amazon, and forgive you making the Kindle such a piece of crap….
Information overload? I sort of agree with this but to me the problem, as it were, stems from understanding that much of the old media can be safely ignored. Then the “overload” disappears.
And speaking about the iPad, a story so wrong and ignorant, it’s breathtaking. (Short version: There’s a Kindle app for the iPhone/iPod Touch which is to say for the iPad so unlike all other e-readers, you’d have a choice with the iPad.) Thanks for the usual crap job, AP. And please sue me for this link.
How would you rather read the Times (if you must — even Krugman thinks it sucks)? Look:
(That said, yes, the Times’ site is an imbecilic nightmare. I’m sure Pinch and Keller will figure that out in a couple of years.)
The iPad is in fact over 40 years old….
Old tech is sometimes still the best. Look!
This almost made me laughed.
Noted: There’s big business in hating vaginas. Ponder that.
Another dereliction fixed; props to my goddess, the most awesome woman in show-biz:
(A little about that last viddie is here.)
How long a minute is depends on which side of the bathroom door you’re on. /.
Happy Groundhog Day! Here in New York City, we don’t have groundhogs. Here’s what happens: Down at the Hello Deli, a rat pokes his head out of a club sandwich.” — David Letterman
