One of my favorite bands of all time, Clutch, and the video to their “Animal Farm”. Tastes just like chicken they say!

If these guys ever come anywhere near here let me know and we’ll go, k? I still got the old mosh boots. 😉

A most excellent Venn diagram

On November 30, 2007 By

This is really a very insightful Venn diagram:

If you aren’t familiar with Venn diagrams, they are typically used in set theory to explain relationships between different sets (groups of things).

Dark Days in NYC (Video)

On November 30, 2007 By

I like to Netflix documentaries (a true sign that your business has made it is when it’s name turns into a verb). The beauty of the service is that I get exposed to stuff I probably wouldn’t normally. Dark Days is one of those. Because I watch documentaries, good ones are recommended. The only thing that frustrates me is how late I seem to be on alot of them. I felt the same way after finding More. “How the hell did I miss this?!,” I continue to ask. Dark Days came out in 2000 and won three […]

I heart Big Brother!

On November 30, 2007 By

Our government is sullying perhaps the last honorable profession left and training firefighters to be domestic spies for Big Brother.

A year ago, Homeland Security gave security clearances to nine New York City fire chiefs and began sharing intelligence with them. Even before that, fire department personnel were being taught “to identify material or behavior that may indicate terrorist activities” and were also “told to be alert for a person who is hostile, uncooperative or expressing hate or discontent with the United States.”

Unlike law enforcement officials, firemen can go onto private property without a warrant, […]

Rove: Congress rushed us to war!

On November 30, 2007 By

You have got to be kidding me. Congress voting on an AUMF forced the White House’s hand? Really? The joint resolution had 98% support from legislative GOPers, was introduced by the GOP, and was directed by the White House (read the notes section). In fact, here’s the original AUMF as drafted by the White House, in a press release from the day it was introduced.

What a liar.

So I’m over at reading about Mike Huckabee and his “conservative credentials” and I see this scary ad that says:


So I click on the link and- surprise! It takes me to a site sponsored by the Media Research Center (MRC).

The MRC, if you didn’t already know, is a conservative media criticism organization that “catalogs and reports on what it asserts to be widespread liberal media bias in the United States press.”

Anyway- the site is just a single page with […]

Well- as long as everyone else is talking about last night’s debate- I might as well add in my two cents…

If abortion is illegal, what should the punishment be?

This is a great question and I’m so glad they decided to use it. Of course, they all avoided answering the question saying “states’ rights” etc, etc.

Do you believe every word of The Holy Bible

Watch Rudy- and even Mike Huckabee- weasle out of answering this question. Anderson Cooper should have MADE them answer YES or NO.

But my favorite question came from Keith Kerr, a […]

War on Christma… Hanukkah?

On November 29, 2007 By

Well, conservatives are beating the drums of war, and this time it’s about that old conservative saw: the alleged liberal/ACLU “War on Christmas”. Of course, we all know it’s not a war on Christmas, but actually a war on unconstitutional government endorsement of religion, but conservatives don’t like to let facts get in the way of a good rant.

Here’s one fact, however, that’s hard to ignore: the ACLU threatened to sue a county government in Hawaii last year if they didn’t put a Christmas tree up.

County workers raised a festive tree at the Kalana O Maui Building […]

So, the “famously liberal” (if you listen to rightwingers) cable news network CNN aired a “YouTube” debate last night. Except one of the questions selected wasn’t from a normal everyday citizen, like the spirit of the debate is supposed to be.

It was from Grover Frickin’ Norquist.

Are you kidding me? They reject FL Gov Crist (R) because he’s got “regular access to politicians”, and they reject DNC chair Howard Dean for the same reason, but they let Grover “I want to drown government in a bathtub” Norquist ask a question? The man could score sit-downs with Karl Rove […]
