Because we have 5 very activist conservative judges on the Supreme Court, our Democracy will very soon be sold to Corporations.

Colbert, a comedy show, the only source addressing this crucial issue.

Colbert Goes There - Only Media Figure In America To Openly Discuss Corporate Control Of Gov't


I feel your pissed off-ness.

Dear Dems, Feed me a Sh!t Sandwich on HCR and I'll BURN THIS MFing TENT TO THE GROUND


What Duncan says

"Here's A Crazy Idea

Instead of a fine, perhaps the government could just sign you up to... oh, I don't know what we should call it... a public plan? And then send you a bill.

It's all so complicated and Rube Goldbergesque."

Lest we not forget Bush's final Fuck You to the nation:

October 2009: Donald L. Barlett and James B. Steele on the U.S. Treasury |

Last October, Congress passed the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008, putting $700 billion into the hands of the Treasury Department to bail out the nation’s banks at a moment of vanishing credit and peak financial panic. Over the next three months, Treasury poured nearly $239 billion into 296 of the nation’s 8,000 banks. The money went to big banks. It went to small banks. It went to banks that desperately wanted the money. It went to banks that didn’t want the money at all but had been ordered by Treasury to take it anyway. It went to banks that were quite happy to accept the windfall, and used the money simply to buy other banks. Some banks received as much as $45 billion, others as little as $1.5 million. Sixty-seven percent went to eight institutions; 33 percent went to the rest. And that was just the money that went to banks. Tens of billions more went to other companies, all before Barack Obama took office. It was the largest single financial intervention by Treasury into the banking system in U.S. history.

It is OK if you are a Republican.

Jeez. Morons.

Anti-Czar Bill Gets 100 Cosponsors In House [UPDATE]:

"I also pointed out yesterday that 'czars' have been a fact of life in American politics since the Nixon administration, and, to the best of my recollection, no Republican ever complained about the multitude of 'czars' in the Bush White House. But don't take my word for that. Here's Congressman Darrell Issa (R-Calif):"

Judges smacking down the crazy.

Connie Rhodes "Birther" Challenge Thrown Out, Taitz Scolded:

"Land also put attorney Orly Taitz, who represents Capt. Connie Rhodes and is a leader in the national 'birther' movement, on notice by stating that she could face sanctions if she ever files a similar 'frivolous' lawsuit in his court.

'(Rhodes) has presented no credible evidence and has made no reliable factual allegations to support her unsubstantiated, conclusory allegations and conjecture that President Obama is ineligible to serve as president of the United States,' Land states in his order. 'Instead, she uses her complaint as a platform for spouting political rhetoric, such as her claims that the president is 'an illegal usurper, an unlawful pretender, [and] an unqualified imposter.''"

The Kids are alright.

The $150 Edge-of-Space Camera: MIT Students Beat NASA On Beer-Money Budget | Gadget Lab |

"The two students (from MIT, of course) put together a low-budget rig to fly a camera high enough to photograph the curvature of the Earth. Instead of rockets, boosters and expensive control systems, they filled a weather balloon with helium and hung a styrofoam beer cooler underneath to carry a cheap Canon A470 compact camera. Instant hand warmers kept things from freezing up and made sure the batteries stayed warm enough to work.

Of course, all this would be pointless if the guys couldn’t find the rig when it landed, so they dropped a prepaid GPS-equipped cellphone inside the box for tracking. Total cost, including duct tape? $148."

Dude. Where's my crack.

One hell of a jones to pass off a Lincoln for 50 bucks.

Man accused of trading dad's car for $50 in crack:

"Authorities arrested a man they said tried to trade his father's car for $50 worth of crack cocaine. Deputies arrested the 39-year-old man around 4 a.m. Wednesday after his 74-year-old father reported that his Lincoln had been stolen. When deputies arrived at the father's home, they saw the son walking up the street. They determined that the car had been sold for drugs."
