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.
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.)
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.
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….
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.
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….
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?
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.
