I’m Not Mad, I’m Just Out of My Mind for 15 July 2009


Whatever words we utter should be chosen with care for people will hear them and be influenced by them for good or ill. — Buddha

Going out of business is the least that should happen to these assholes.

Assholes: John Yoo and the brainless idiots who think he deserves a pulpit for his lies. Again, Philly Inky, please to explain why anyone would want to pay to read shit like Yoo (other than the few remaining people who still Rick Santorum is anything more than a nutjob).

Assholes: The C Street “Family”: They aren’t really Christian and, for that matter, they hate America.

Bobbie Jindal is an asshole 24/7; this just the latest and surely not the last. Idea for a game! Every time a wingnut says anything racist about Obama, let’s throw the same comment right back at Jindal. If he wants to lead his party, he’ll surely accpt the returned hatred.

Assholes: The ball-less pols who okayed tossing our freedoms after 9/11.

Asshole: If this soldier doesn’t believe Obama’s president, I’m sure, for the sake of our security, the military is well within its rights to have him confined to a mental facility, where, I’m sure, he’d be happy to spending his days jerking off to Sarah  Palin fantasies.

Idiots: Obama only talks but we’re led by dopes like these.

Visa will have its justice!

Assholes: Obama to America: Drop dead. And those of you still have hope. You still have yet to realize he doesn’t care about you. And here’s another thing the Liar-in-Chief is screwing up.

Assholes: The WaPo for giving Sarah Palin Op-Ed space. The idea can be rationalized but, at the end of the day, it’s just plain stupid.

Cheating: America’s true sport, isn’t it?

Watch and listen: Kids make real music.

Mr. and Mrs. Sarkozy know all this....

Almost as hot as Megan Fox....
Today's arts and craft.

It’s Like the Return of “Camera Three”; Out of My Mind for 12 July 2009

Camera Three was like my favorite TV show ever. (Link.)

I am desperately trying to figure out why Kamikaze pilots wore helmets. — Dave Edison

It is undesirable to believe a proposition when there is no ground whatsoever for supposing it is true. — Bertrand Russell

Far from idleness being the root of all evil, it is rather the only true good. — Soren Kierkegaard

A round-up of rightist dementia the Big Media are inexplicably unable to condemn, only able to publicize.

Josh Marshall scoffs at the concept of liberals and the ilk being scared of Palin. She’s so wrong. Tell me this doesn’t scare you: President Palin.

This is rich; an amusing irony.

Professor Alberto Gonzales.

Wingnuts make sacrifices for their country.

How my scattered mind works and why it’s a good thing.

Michael Jackson’s medical history. Now the medicos come clean and stop the lying (as opposed to the proper “no comment”s).

An essential obit of Robert McNamara.

What Big Media believes is important:

A Flood of Stuff; Out of My Mind for 19 June 2009

I run this because I can and because I still think so little of Sarkozy.

Most human beings have an almost infinite capacity for taking things for granted. — Aldous Huxley

If there were in the world today any large number of people who desired their own happiness more than they desired the unhappiness of others, we could have paradise in a few years. — Bertrand Russell

I’m not the person your mother warned you about… her imagination isn’t that good. — Amy Gorin

This looks like a really cool charity.

To me, this is funny.

You want your sexy back? Forget Carla Bruni, here’s the real deal.

We don’t have to eat this: spudburgers.

Obama’s radical health reform doesn’t have any public alternative. Reform looks more like a health insurer windfall act with a few goodies for the medical professionals. You know, rewarding and therefore encouraging bad behavior like TARP bailouts and credit card reform (latter only lacked the most important benefit, to wit, a cap on crushing interest rates). (More financial failure noted here. Obama’s latest failure is here.) Dunno who Obama’s leading with all his popularity but it sure aren’t the Dems in Congress.

Wow! If my wife was willing, this looks like one great way to get a job!

Who needs newspapers if they make readers do their work for them? (I joke; this is actually somewhat cool.)

Where not to live in the U.S.

Art in the street? (Click for the story of how a Duchamp got on the street.)
The rescue of Wall Street in historical perspective.

See memories form.

By God, Greenwald is right again: The columnist the WaPo fired was its best. Of course, the paper’s been running on hubris for the lat thirty years or so….

The innocents have no right from unlawful incarceration.

If this was Woodstock in ’69 though….

All Over, Covering the Globe! Out of My Mind for 16 June 2009

I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.
— Thomas Jefferson

Reading made Don Quixote a gentleman. Believing what he read made him mad. — George Bernard Shaw

Where all think alike, no one thinks very much. — Walter Lippmann

Do these ever end? Yet more palaces of Saddam??

Oooh, today’s odd couple: Buzz Aldrin and Snoop Dogg.

This is silly: respect for dead fish.

Seems Wall Street was bothered yesterday by a rise in credit card defaults, like maybe that actually was genuinely bad news.

For real: Click on an ad, download a virus!

Correction? Maybe Obama doesn’t want to screw the victims of medical malpractice too much. Maybe. Although it sounds like just another of his slick lines of bullshit anyway.

My Bill O’Reilly moment: There’s no justification for louses like this guy. He’s an utter waste. Utter.

The story about that last video is here.

Nightmare! President McCain!

Awww, moderate drinking isn’t good for your health??

Attention, Sarkozy: All France Did on D-Day was to be Rescued by the U.S. and the U.K.; Out of My Mind for 6 June 2009

Are we not wasps who spend all day in a fruitless attempt to traverse a window-pane – while the other half of the window is wide open? — “Fingers Pointing Toward the Moon” by Wei Wu Wei

Sarkozy = asshole. However, credit is due him: He’s the only major head of government who has a wife with nude pix floating around the web:

The First %^#@ing Lady of France (and not quite ex-groupie), in all her glory.

Really, though, if Bruni is so hot, why is ex-lover Eric Clapton living in Ohio? What does he know that Sarkozy can’t figure out?

This, though is quite sad: The Grammy for Best Polka — history.

More disgusting corporatism.

For those of you interested in penguin skid marks being visible from space….

Barack Obama: Master Flip-Flopper. Obama’s change: Replace a Republican with a Democrat who will institute Republican policies. That’s change we needed — not. And Matt Taibbi is getting pissed too.

Tata has come up with the flat of my dreams (really!).

Truth: Microsoft is funny.

People never learn from genocides, do they? What is it? They hope they get their chances to kill the next time?

I’m sick of the government-can’t-do-anything-better-than-the-private-sector meme. As if recent history shouldn’t have put the lie to that one. and the health insurers’ lies that public insurance must suck has been disproved for, oh, about fifty years now: it’s called Medicare. Anyway, this guy also thinks they’re full of shit too.
