So, I just heard there’s going to be a big march tomorrow, May Day. Lots of folks are joining in, immigrant rights marchers, the ILWU, anti-war protesters, just to name a few. There’s also going to be one of those “Emergency Drills”, where FEMA and Homeland Security and some army troops swarm Seattle and hold [...]
Via the farmer comes this eloquent plea for sanity: This is the reason for the cacophony of inanity that dominates the coverage of the political events of our time: It serves as white noise that drowns out unpleasant truths. It is the mood music piped into our national bubble. Accordingly, trivial and specious narratives drive [...]
Austria made the lead story all morning on CNN. Even when they switched to the Washington bureau with a somber (hypocite) Jonathan Mann. The story in the link above can leave you spitless.

No, I really don’t think this one will do any good, but as always, it doesn’t hurt to register your disapproval. And from [...]
Good thing – for them, not for you – that the GOP (with the eager assistance of most Dems) has been so successful at packing the courts with right-wing authoritarian nut-cases. Otherwise this bit of news might have led to some interesting lawsuits against the government. COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A Colorado woman with a [...]
Pastor Roger Byrd said he didn’t mean to be political, or racist, or to hurt feelings or offend anyone. And lest you think it was his sole decision, the congregation voted Sunday to keep the sign. The black people in Mr. Byrd’s congregation did not vote to keep the sign, however, because there are no [...]
Really, I do! But when the most pressing issue is that Dubai is getting a strap-on? My pledge dollars can go elsewhere.
When the person apologising adds a qualifier which turns it into a vicious attack on the person or persons being apologised to. Link in the title. What with all the focus being mainly on Hillary and Barack, it took over 72 hours to find the same sort of reaction I had. (see the April 19th [...]
As a few of you know, I’m currently getting screwed on the Dell laptop I bought from Best Buy last month. I have been getting blue screens of death that tell me that I have a “Bad Pool Caller”. Dell keeps referring me to Best Buy and Best Buy keeps sending me right back to [...]
I’ve unsubscribed from this little wiener’s hackneyed mailing list TWELVE FUCKING TIMES, which is remarkable in that I NEVER FUCKING SUBSCRIBED IN THE FIRST FUCKING PLACE. And y’know what happens when you send him an “unsubscribe” e-mail? IT BOUNCES BACK BECAUSE THE MAILBOX DOESN’T FUCKING EXIST. Yeah, give free passes to the ever-growing telecom conglomerate [...]
