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!

Out of My Mind for 5 August 2009

Freed! From a couple of months imprisoned in North Korea: Comrade-journos (whih is to say real, non-MSM journos) Laura Ling and Euna Lee. (More here.)

Big Pharma’s deadly fraud: The story and the proof.

Sub-cretinous idiots with too much time on their hands and no sense; read about them and their stupidity here.

A tiny bit of justice: Creationist owner of creationist amusement park busted for tax fraud; him and Al Cap[one…. He would have paid his taxes, it’s just that God told him not to….

The shame that is modern journalism: a pathological refusal to deal in facts and accuracy, everything must be undercut to the point of meaninglessness. Maybe the MSM’s infected by this pathology…? And here’s another, related example of their inherent corruption and deliberate dishonesty.

America: It ain’t what it used to be (which I of course credit to what I call the Raygun counter-revolution*.) We’re ever more subsumed which is to say we’re ever more losing freedom…. (*For every revolution, there’s an equally powerful counter-revolution of one sort or another.)

What makes ours the World’s Greatest Healthcare System!

The GOP believes there’s no problem for which tax cuts aren’t the solution. Bad idea (you knew that but here’s proof.) Republicans: Only good if you hate America.

Cretinous scumbag: Orly Taitz. Can’t someone please shut her up since the MSM seems to find her newsworthy? And if you don’t believe she’s utter garbage, here’s proof.

Murderous Christian scumbag? Blackwater founder Erik Prince.

So, the next Mac OS has more pre-orders on Amazon than Win7. What I wonder: What percentage of PC owners buy upgrades as opposed to just getting them with new hardware as compared to Mac owners.

This is cool! (Warning: Site takes forever to load.)

Out of My Mind for 4 August 2009

Why we’re doomed: $100,000,000.00 in lobbying $$$ to doom or corrupt or, I should say, pervert health reform. Much more on the slow (and inexcuseable) death of true reform here.

I don’t know what kind of idiot she is: Kay Bailey Hutchinson and, maybe, the most insane campasign website ever. I dunno, maybe she wants to be the new Palin…?

Asshole and cretin: Prodigy wingnut and the Times’ new loony, Ross Douthat.

Assholes and scumbags: The GOP was for Medicare rationing until it became opposed to a non-existent plan for Medicare rationing.

Wow, does Obama actually give a shit about this country?? If so, where’s the proof, other than lip?

Asshole: President John Sidney McCain III. Again. Clearly a cunt, hence his selection of Palin.

So we couldn’t trust GE to screw around with news coverage after all. What a surprise…. Corporate journalism: who needs it?

Asshole: Rush Limbaugh. Of course.

Oooh, Obama has a Kenyan birth certificate! Watch and learn:

Sick fuck savages: The wingnuts. They’re all crazed, aren’t they?

The nightmare that is the Florida housing market, a tribute to the bubble. (How come Obama doesn’t want that bubble re-inflated?)

Hell on earth.

Hack parking meters, park for free??

Experiment on yourself.

Micro$oft innovation: closed open standards. Innovating crap….

Was Tenenbaum a putz?

(About that last video.)

(More about that last video here.)

(About that last video here.)

Personally, I don’t believe he has nuts to hit or, at least, is so easy a target…:

Does this make you horny?

Not Quite a Day of Rest; Out of My Mind for 25 July 2009

palin hubristic
Still loved, despite being a quitter! Click on that beautiful face for the details!

Cretins and assholes: CNN, a godawful source of news. I guess the producers are relatively stupid and don’t believe in the importance of news, you can’t get very much by way of competent reporting….

Cretins: The Birthers. But you knew that. (And they’re even worse because the exact same question could be asked about John Sidney McCain III — moreso because there’s not a scintilla of delusional doubt where he was born — but of course they don’t; people like these wouldn’t let a single fact interfere with their beliefs.)

An obvious fake. I do not believe this is real.

Pussies and assholes: Micro$oft: Last week, its COO boasts (with no support) that Apple legal tried to shut down its ads showing how much cheaper PC crap is than Apple’s laptops. Yesterday, the ads get changed. Typical. And why Windows 7 should be called Vista 2: ‘Cause it’s gonna bomb too.

One Not-So-Giant Step… for Sanity, Actually…. Out of My Mind for 20 July 2009

Anniversary info is here.

That was then, this is now: A flooded toilet on the space station….

Future: That period of time in which our affairs prosper, our friends are true and our happiness is assured. — Ambrose Bierce

Fact: Many wingnuts may well be cretins to some degree or another. If learning is good for the brain, what does being closed-minded do for one’s mental health?

Cretin: Michael Steele. Correction; Make it the entire, deranged GOP.

The GOP is not dead, it just has extremists with nothing good to offer the country, to say the least. The problem is bigger than that and that is the massive complete corruption of both parties where nearly no pol finds it in his interest to give a good God-or-other damn about the nation an our well-being. Example: Public option: after Detroit’s meltdown, if isn’t clear that some big step towards public health insurance (among other reasons) isn’t essential… well, then there’s a big problem up front at the controls….

The triumph of Mammon…:


Just so you know, book publishing is also in trouble. Amazing all the harm that has flowed from Big Business’ post-RJR-Nabisco refusal to focus on the long term ’cause Wall Street only cared about short-term and made management care for it as well to businesses’ detriment.

It ain’t just us; U.K. cops SWAT team shuts down a quiet barbecue.

Read more about how our bodies work than you probably care to know.

Playtime! (But not what you think.)

Much, Much Mellower; Out of My Mind for 2 July 2009

We’re far less independent than we used to be, aren’t we?

So the guy in this video was worship by us lefties ’cause he said some stuff that we liked to hear, but then the wingnuts started bashing him as being a whacko or something — IIRC. But clearly it looks like he was on to something….

Direct action for the public option. (Where’s Barack?) Stop the presses: Looks like a public option is again a possibility.

Xeni got this right: essential reading; Taibbi on Goldman Sachs. I say: read it, then kill the fuckers (I of course say that the exact same way Bill O’Reilly would were he referring to an abortionist.)

I used to like Harold Baer….

Sanford doesn’t have to quit. He can hang around forever, an inspiration for contempt for the modern, Palin wing of the GOP….

Speaking of what the GOP has to offer the world: Rush Limbaugh, GOP head: Michael Jackson was murdered. By Obama. Gotta be pretty sick to give this asshole any legitimacy.

This is cool!

This is not:

My wife might find this funny.

Wankery is actually a good thing.

Talk about incest! All the world’s ants are members of the same family?

Who doesn’t love day-glo???

What we used to create art before the digital era, brushes before Brushes, as it were. (Then again, this guy adapted….)

God bless the Chinese….

See an obsession.

To me, cars just get better and better (and I don’t refer to the flacid Prius):

The blackest black ever? (Not a [I can’t say the name] joke, but black is my favorite color.)

Who doesn't worship Jabba??

I love the movie this is from!

Supersized for Wednesday Out of My Mind for 1 July 2009

Message for you, Mr. President.
Message for you, Mr. President.

Attention, Sanfords, Spitzers, Obamas, you and me:

What counts in making a happy marriage is not so much how compatible you are, but how you deal with incompatibility.” — Leo Tolstoy

The important thing is not to stop questioning. — Albert Einstein

The worst sin toward our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them: that’s the essence of inhumanity. — George Bernard Shaw

Bore, n.: A guy who wraps up a two-minute idea in a two-hour vocabulary. — Walter Winchell

Our Leaders clearly do not believe in the need for financial reform. Bipartisanship at last.

Enough with the confessions; he must resign. That simple. Like Bernie Madoff may never be a free man again, Sanford must be out of government immediately. Unless he honestly confesses and apologizes for being a hypocritical asshole instead of a narcissistic philanderer. (The former is my problem with him, not the latter; in view of what he married, he has a chunk of my sympathy.)

Why is this a major story? Isn’t it straight from the Duh Dept.? We need newspapers and Big Journalism for this?

Many With Insurance Still Bankrupted by Health Crises

The apparent lesson of Tony George: Pissing away money for no good reason (and destroying open wheel racing in this country) is okay in a good economy but bad in a weak economy. Truth: pissing away money is never a very good idea.

The truly awful thing about Windows isn’t its inherent crappiness but the time and cost in simple maintenance: anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-everything. Of course, this helped create a small industry and employment and wealth but still. Unacceptable.

I’m still sad about Kodachrome. Film was so damn sexy. Digital is efficient but frigid 😦

Learn how to really do it fix things here.

Everyone loves Sarah — not. Only makes sense since she’s, well, dumb and crazy and all…. Speaking of which, since the media still feels a need to give her greatly undue publicity, I would think her death would be the only way to stop the Press (so to speak); I course merely paraphrase Bill O’Reilly and make no suggestions…. Oooh, and watch the wingnuts go crazy over the Vanity Fair piece. Just imagine: it was a scoop that she was stupid narcisssist, like it was so hard to figure out….

Let’s go to PARC! (Without it, this blog almost definitely would not be here.)

Go inside the Madoff marriage.

Eat these. If you, you know, dare.
