California Dreamin'

Uh oh. Wignuts are going to have to eat yet another shit sandwich. I hope they enjoyed the 'Obama doesn't have the balls to save the Somali Pirate's Captain captive' shit sub they got to snack upon this week.

Oh Noes! Wingnuts Ain't Gonna Like This...Stimulus Projects UNDER Budget


It's like Sacha Cohen is doing a another movie where he poses as a Republican operative and creates these AstroTurf 'events' and names them the 'Tea Bag Movement' and all of the Republican followers think it the best idea evah.

Embarrassingly hilarious.

Op-Ed Columnist - Tea Parties Forever - NYTimes.com:

"Beyond that, Republicans have become embarrassing to watch. And it doesn’t feel right to make fun of crazy people. Better, perhaps, to focus on the real policy debates, which are all among Democrats."

Your wingnut Supreme Court. 'We don't need no stinkin' Bill of Rights'.

Daily Kos: Clarence Thomas proposes 'alternatives' to Bill of Rights

"The evening was devoted to the Bill of Rights, but Justice Thomas did not embrace the document, and he proposed a couple of alternatives.

‘Today there is much focus on our rights,' Justice Thomas said. 'Indeed, I think there is a proliferation of rights.'

'I am often surprised by the virtual nobility that seems to be accorded those with grievances,' he said. 'Shouldn’t there at least be equal time for our Bill of Obligations and our Bill of Responsibilities?'

How is this man allowed to serve on our Supreme Court when he seems to have no idea what is contained in the Constitution? He does not 'embrace' the Bill of Rights?

Clarence, here's a radical idea that may not have occurred to you yet: Look at the fucking Constitution, you dipshit. It sure as hell contains a Bill of Rights, but does not contain any sort of Bill of Obligations or Bill of Responsibilities.

There should not be 'equal time' for 'our' Bill of Obligations or Bill of Responsibilities because they do not exist in the Constitution. The founders wisely set forth a Bill of Rights to protect the freedoms of society."


Land of the free sours on capitalism: US poll:
"Bad news for those fearful of 'creeping socialism' in the United States -- only 53 percent of Americans now believe capitalism is the better system, according to a new poll Thursday.

Fully 20 percent in the Rasmussen Reports survey said that socialism was their preferred economic system -- a startling number that suggests growing disaffection as the 'land of the free' fights its worst recession in decades.

Republican critics fret that President Barack Obama's big-spending recovery policies amount to an un-American 'creeping socialism,' but Rasmussen said its findings pointed to suspicion of business and government elites alike.

It noted that in another survey last month, two out of three Americans said that big government and big business often collude to undermine the interests of consumers and investors."

You're welcome rest of the country.

In California, Medical Marijuana Laws Are Moving Pot Into the Mainstream - washingtonpost.com:

"But in California, pot is such a booming growth industry that lawmakers are being asked to consider its potential as a salve to the state's financial woes. Betty Yee, chairman of the California State Board of Equalization, endorsed a bill in February to regulate the estimated $14 billion marijuana market, citing the state's budget problems. California currently collects $18 million in sales taxes from marijuana dispensaries, and Yee said a regulated pot trade would bring in $1.3 billion.

'I think the tide is starting to turn in terms of marijuana being part of the mainstream,' she said. 'The pieces seem to be falling into place.'"

Padma posing nude (well, kinda. the artsy fartsy variety)! This almost... almost makes believe in a 'god'.... and 'she' is a good 'god'.

Padman, call me.
