Why So Happy? Out of My Mind for 12 August 2009

Assholes: Know-nothing pimps of torture.

Mexico: Really, the corruption permeates all levels of its society, doesn’t it? All levels.

What do we have? A statistical recovery?

The world’s greatest healthcare system: The the fee schedules are insane.

Cretins: The wingnuts, in the midst of an economic meltdown caused by an overly free market that cares solely for speculation, worries instead about affordable health insurance that actually covers stuff. The classic fear in a democracy: Ignoramuses riled up by demagogues (and “pundits”).

She’s so presidential…:

Karl Rove: Guilty! (But deep in our hearts, we knew it.)

That waterslide viddie? Faked!

You go, GM! Company’s first real innovation in decades!

What necessity mothers…:

Clearly, people used to have too much free time....
Clearly, people used to have too much free time....

What I’d love for my garage doors….

Wow! Rich drug dealers attract really hot girlfriends!
Wow! Rich drug dealers attract really hot girlfriends!

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?


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.

Still Here :( Out of My Mind for 29 July 2009

Just realized this morning I’m somewhat more than just an agregator, sometimes.

Normally, the humor goes at the bottom, but….

The man who has never been flogged has never been taught. — Menander

This woman has it wrong. Sarah Palin, by and by, wasn’t the victim of sexism so much as the victim of the fact that she was deliriously stupid, the dumbest pol sine Danny Quayle — who got slammed by the press just for being stupid and no more. No, without some proof that Palin was slammed for being a woman as opposed to a fucking scary choice for V.P., fugedaboutit. She was slammed solely on the merits. Besides, the guys slamming her weren’t doing because of sexism; to the contrary, they were having sex fantasies about her.

Cretins and assholes: Not the guy selling the idiotic line of shit about suffering from an allergy to WiFi exposure but the professional Big Media journalists who buy his line of shit without thinking to confirm whether it’s even possible to have an allergy to WiFi.

Watch the idiots run:

China’s latest attack on freedom.

Thanks to advertising, we learned that radioactivity is okay because we’re all radioactive anyway.

Really, just how stupid are the wingnut pundits? Can anyone say crap like O’Reilly does here and really believe it? And if they are so stupid or knowingly say such stupid things, why do the Big Media stooges report it? (And another example is here.) And if you’re not going to expose them as liars or crazies, don’t even report idiocy like this or this and give the fuckers free publicity and spread their idiocy. And that irresponsibility of the “professional journalists” results in idiocy like this. I mean, my God, who needs mass stupidity in journalistic outlets??

GOP Stud and Moral Paradigm of the Day: Tenn. State Senator quits after being revealed as having extramarital affair with a 22 year old — after her boyfriend threatens to release “explicit” photos.

Cretins: The idiots who hired her without checking her bona fides and of course her herself. (Issue has nothing to do with her gender. Idiocy has been endemic for decades and transcends gender.)

Scumbags: How they do it; This chapter: Taking the reform out of healthcare reform. Warning: Piece neglects to go into Big Journalism’s contributions.

Assholes, cretins and scumbags(!): The wingnuts and our leaders who love and obsess over torture even though it doesn’t work.

Remember the other day, when I said the Kindle really sucks? It’s worse than that.

She gives herself some damn fine advise, you betcha:

Democracy depends on you and that’s why our troops are willing to die for you. So how about in honor of the American soldier ya quit making things up? — Sarah Palin

Really, it’s All About Anger; Out of My Mind for 26 July 2009


God knows I’m angry (and a little bitter), but I don’t know that I agree with this.

That was then; it’s a new GOP-rightist, nativist world now:

Intellectuals solve problems; geniuses prevent them. — Albert Einstein

Maybe someday again… unlikely….

Assholes: The fighters of health care reform and the Big Media water-carriers who enable and empower them. Without the press, they’re nothing.

Cretin: The true Terminator thought he could govern California. Not with the cancer of Prop. 13 still in the system. But the rightist believer couldn’t see reality. Of course, one should include all the schmucks who voted for Prop. 13 and the governator twice, so I do.

An observation? Can this be true? Only banks that finance the middle class are shut down. Companies — CIT is what I have in mind — that finances small business are allowed to fail. Only the big speculative organizations that have corrupted our system, essentially destroyed our nation politically, are protected. (This is what got me started.)

Study the genius of Sarah Palin.

The criminality of being black: Shows you how times have changed or I’m so dead wrong: Of course, the cop was right to investigate a man breaking into a house. But short of the man seriously threatening the cop physically — harm or death — there is no reason to arrest him. None. There is no reason when in being caught in the wrong showing a little contrition. There is no reason for the support the fucker’s getting from his superiors. To me, all this is inarguably fucked up. The mainstream media seems to see nothing wrong. Indeed, when they deem Obama to be insufficient supportive of this cop (who has earned his ass at least a couple months of unpaid suspension), they beat up on the president. I realize for a large segment of blacks, this is normal. To me, as I said, it’s fucked up. Sick. Part of the Great Pathology brought us by what I think of the Reagan counter-revolution. And here’s why it’s still a crime.

Assholes: The Larry Summers and the putz that appointed him and allow him to ensure that nothing in a busted, screwed up system gets fixed. I realize Obama’s in this strictly for personal gain but being president and all, maybe he could get us a couple of crumbs….

Assholes: The greedy destroyers of the housing market. And this is even worse than that last link.

Why the public sector doesn’t work: GOP fiscal irresponsibility: going for the worse, most expensive solution every time…. In a normal world, everyone would ignore these sick, deranged people who have nothing good to offer.

Just shoot (to wound) these assholes.

Assholes [obvious]: The Big Media journos who fail to give the GOP partisan intransigence any significant coverage. That’s OK, dopes: Keep us in the dark, watch yourselves lose viewers and readers, then watch your careers end. Then, maybe, you’ll realize what you did, that that kind of lousy work earns the loss of a career.

Assholes: The GOP: Love wars, love weapons, hates the troops.

This person is still living in the era before the Reagan Counter-revolution. Then, a healthcare system such as the present one, where the accumulation of wealth is far more important that providing healthcare, would seem bizarre, wrong. Now, it’s the idea of a system that provides affordable care at the expense of profits that seems bizarre.

Assholes: The Times makes a martyr of Tiller’s assassin, cleverly failing to note how he was driven by decades of the rightists’ crazed screeds and that the same insanity ensured there would be as few Tillers as possible, and therefore a threat to women’s health.

Assholes: Big Finances’ government stooges who make it possible for thm to cook their books and dispel lies.

Dope: Charlie Crist, inadvertent Nazi-loving symp.

He’s failed on the economy, jury’s out only on the issue of how big the failure is. If he fails on this too…:

Here, a famous traitor makes a contrary argument:

(Didja catch that?? I was just more fair, more balanced, than Faux News. Hey! What happens to FNC when Rupert’s earnings shrink to the extent that he can’t support Faux and it must become profitable?)

Asshole and scumbag: David Gregory: the latest proof. For the record, he is both symptomatic of what’s wrong with the mainstream press as well as the anti-Cronkite. That’s why there’ll never be another Cronkite: Gregory and those who put him positions of authority won’t do it. They’ve proven they like Gregory’s dishonesty over Cronkite’s facts.

Cretins: See just the latest one here.

Asshole and scumbag I’ve never written about but should have, I suppose: Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.).

Attention, Lady Gaga: call Jackson Browne:

For those of who still can’t contemplate how screwed upon things are, the inexcuseable reason the global economy was tanked, start here.

Sad: India’s going to bust monkeys and jail them.

Speaking of monkeys, watch these.

Thank God for the Apple stores; without them, what would Micro$oft rip off for their temples of crap? See Micro$oft’s utter bankruptcy of any originality here.

Because I love Nikke:

Ooops! That last video was probably faked!

Here’s Your Sunday Boom Boom Pow! Out of My Mind for 19 July 2009

(Blogger’s note: Clearly have been using “asshole” a lot lately. The word may offend but you know I’m right about everyone of them. Meanwhile, I’m exploring alternatives, just not today.)

What I pray for:

(More about that last video here.)

Read here how Big Journalism failed us on the inevitable financial disaster.

And contrary to the know-nothing, care-nothing water-carriers, looks like the stimulus is working.

The lies of the tort “reformers”. Truth is, there’s little to reform, just the elimination of punishments for wrongful behavior. Modern conservatives, remember, do not believe in facts. So when they claim to present any, you can safely presume they are in fact made up out of nothing, pure lies.

In the corporatist world, the destroyers get rewarded by being given the opportunity to make money by correcting their prior bad acts. Can you see what’s wrong with that picture? The wrong-doer is rewarded instead of punished.

Single video double-feature: Apollo 11 landing anniversary and Cronkite memorial:

Assholes: Bob Woodward thinks that attempt to peddle in influence buying and selling now makes WaPo’s new publisher qualified to be publisher. This so stupid a position, nothing needs to be added: committing a single major mistake is the one thing that makes her qualified?? And firing Froomkin? That we’re to take as… what? Firing a new media star is a good idea?

Asshole: This guy who believes newspapers offer nothing online justifying charging. He is so wrong. Media have to stop giving stuff away or, for that matter, allowing their stuff to be stolen. Rolling Stone did it partly correct with the Taibbi Goldman Sachs piece: no legal copies available online while the issue was on the newsstands. In a rush to read the piece? Buy the issue. He claims newspapers are worth paying for either. Wrong: They can be extremely efficient packaged compendiums of news, insight, opinion, entertainment and features and services. He also says you can news wherever online. That is true up to a point but it becomes up to the publisher to make a paper or a sight a go-to place. Times journalism is essentially available in one place. Wall Street Journal material: ditto. McClatchy journalism: a few places. Yeah, crap has limited value in this new world but, really, other that guys who’d lose jobs, what else is the downside for losing crap?

Asshole: Ben Stein: There is no excuse for someone with his background to take money for pushing a switch and bait scam like this. On deck: We’ll see what the Times does in response. Hint to Pinch and Steve (because the rulers of Big Jounralism don’t actually follow news or anything): If you fire the fucker, I’m sure cancellations will be capped in the single digits. Or taking a proper stand might attract readers.

Assholes: Everyone who is still in denial about how Prop. 13 destroyed California.

Assholes: [GOP] senators who think people making $350,000.00 and more a year cannot afford a small tax increase. (And this is connection with the health insurance reform which, if it works, may well save the schmucks money in the long run.)

Assholes: The inability to find any links is proof I’m right (although I am anyway): Not a clip to be found of the night that Cronkite got up from his desk to spend nearly half a broadcast explaining Watergate and its importance.

Asshole (second redux): Amazon and the theft of the Orwell books. Wouldn’t the right thing to either get the publisher or Amazon to pay the rights holder whatever they’re entitled to — that is, make the sales proper after the fact — instead of stealing the books back? I’m sure there’s out of pocket costs to the innocent buyers but aren’t they the last people to be inconvenienced? (Yeah, yeah, I know, that’s so old fashioned….)

Did Big Labor have a big win that Big Media, in their water-carrying way, is required to spin as a defeat?

Assholes: All these sick, sick wingnut emailers. Correction: These rightist water-carriers from Big Media outlets are worse.

Assholes: Everyone who claims to find Sotomayor unqualified but has no issue with Clarence Thomas (who, for you young people, was completely unqualified and even unfit and who has yet failed to rise to his responsibility).

Near-assholes: Nevada; two lousy senators and a housing market that’s a huge stinking crater. And Arizona is about as bad.

Assholes: Sarah Palin apologists.

Assholes: Goldman Sachs (and here too):

Here, laugh at this Goldman joke before it comes true.

Assholes: The RNC promotes anti-Semitism hatred of Jews.

Assholes: Anti-public option proponents relying on the CBO’s cost estimate. The thing to keep in mind is that without significant reform, costs will continue to spiral out of control and actual care and coverage will continue to deteriorate. So how do the CBO estimates compare to that?

Assholes: Michael Steele and the scumbags who appointed him:

These assholes coulda been president special appearance by water-carrying simian asshole David Gregory):

Greenwald says goodbye to Cronkite, filling in the missing blanks in the coverage, moreso the current failings of modern journalism. Again, journalism serves the people or it’s irrelevant. The publishers and producers have cast their vote, for irrelevance.

Found! A brief write-up describing how Cronkite gav a big, maybe crucial push to the Watergate story. And P.S., he’s one journo who never gave an sign of being sorry for bringing down a louse of a president. When you have morals, you have morals. Only water-carriers regret.

Asshole: because he is completely dead wrong:

“I think there are a lot of critics who think that [in the run-up to the Iraq War] . . . . if we did not stand up and say this is bogus, and you’re a liar, and why are you doing this, that we didn’t do our job. I respectfully disagree. It’s not our role” — David Gregory, MSNBC, May 28, 2008. [Link.]

(Well, in his defense, David Gregory has clearly achieved great success by being a cunt.)

Who delivers real job growth? First clue: Not the pro-business GOP.

Tom Wilkes, graphic designer supreme, dead.

It Only Looks Like I’m Angry; Out of My Mind for 17 July 2009

“Do not be wise in words – be wise in deeds.” — Jewish Proverb

(More re the above here.)

Assholes: Sotomayor’s GOP questioners.

Asshole: Jeff Sessions, still.

Assholes? GE claims to go green by releasing a suite of devices to monitor energy usage. As I see this, it means, I buy more crap using more energy to see how much energy I’m using. There’s real equipment that really reduces sage, but I don’t this crap as being that. It is a typical corporatist “solution”: solution in name only in order to be a profits generator and do absolutely no more good than that. Me, I’d slap solar panels or a wind turbine on my roof before I’d buy crap like this and know I’m reducing non-renewable usage significantly.

Assholes: The growing police state that is the U.K. (bet they wish they had a constitution and bill of rights now, maybe) and the lazy dopes citizens who allow it.

Assholes: Two more vile rightists identified here.

Asshole: Amazon; sells book, steals it back when publisher whines.

Asshole: The RIAA. Old news, latest is here.

Economic policy; the super-short version. Just read it.

The N.Y.P.D. updates to typewriters.

One of the first truths I learned (as opposed to the overwhelming majority of truths I’ve yet to learn or internalize) was that many academic superstars were not-terribly bright grinds. And now it looks like a number of them are just autistic (which isn’t to say they shouldn’t be loved or that they’re worthless). Flash: Academic stars without social skills won’t do the world as much good as dopes with skills. The best it can get you is the mixed blessing of Windows.

Soon-to-be ex-Gov. Sarah Palin, did you cause this?

Prof. Krugman is wrong about this because the Big Media has not yet gotten the message.

An Apple fanboy, choked up….

Recipe of the day: Put your day-long parked vehicle to good use, take advantage of it to save energy and come out from the office to a yummy fresh treat.

The Rage Still Burns; Out of My Mind for 16 July 2009

Stupid: Thinking (or believing) that this is leadership. It isn't.

Assholes: Boulder, Colorado.

Assholes: China’s treatment for internet addiction was electroshock. Clearly, this is why the iPhone’s coming to the PRC sans WiFi. (Hey, PRC, 3G is almost as good and far more available, so web access is why you want your phones without WiFi, you’re idiots!)

Assholes: This company who used a photo of murdered newlyweds for promotional uses. For businesses, the ends always justify the means. Businesses are at least amoral, Steve Forbes to the contrary. (He thinks one of the great things about capitalism is the freedom that attends it like in Singapore, South Korea and banana republics. Then again, Forbes is proven stupid, having been dumb enough to try to be a pol.)

Assholes: Another business that requires blatant, deliberate, knowing lies for promotion.

Another shithole we allow to remain a shithole (more here):

You knew that Wall Street wasn’t really all that rational unless following the herd right or wrong is some form of rational.

Assholes: Sarah Palin and all her whiny-ass, stupid supporters. Again, even by low pol standards, she’s dumb and extreme and inconsistent.

Asshole: Still Sarah.

Assholes: Jeff Sessions and the Big Media dopes who cover for him.

Assholes: All those Big Media journos who don’t understand that their job is to investigate and report, not be water-carriers.

Ooh, just got last year’s iPhone 3G and I’m ecstatic!

Query: Doesn’t putting Micro$oft stores near Apple stores makes Apple products look all that much better, what being seen next to crap and all?

Assholes: Indian tiger sanctuaries that get rid of all their tigers.

Assholes: The people who turn these people into dopes.

How synchronicitic; I had just had a craving to watch “Thunderball” again (although the book, silly as it is, is a little better, specially the beginning):
