A common wail I’ve been hearing from my fellow bloggers lately is the meme of “Why Don’t You Ever F#@
Your tax money hard at work, as the U.S. Army covers up gang-rapes & homicides of our women in uniform by the lowest forms of life on earth, “PRIVATE CONTRACTORS.” That’s what we pay ‘em for, right? To destroy evidence, lie in autopsies, and conceal the cause of death from the woman’s OWN FAMILY?!?!? Doesn’t [...]
When we protest at the outrageous things that right-wing talk showhosts say, and ask their followers to do… they just respond that weshouldn’t take it seriously: “its only entertainment”. Well… Its all fun and games until someone loses an eye And last Sunday was just that moment, when Jim David Adkisson went ona Rampage in [...]
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. was recently here in Bellingham and gave a wonderful speech about the environment and what nature and the preservation of the environment means. I don’t recall why he has a vocal problem, but after a couple of minutes I was so engrossed in what he had to say that I didn’t [...]
Go See It!!! (No, I haven’t written "War & Peace" or anything of that rank here, just fucking read it, willya?)
Thanks to Le Petite Fromage, Mirele, Terrible, and a wunnerful new friend in NOLA, Ms. Charlotte, I was able to go way down to South Bumfuck, Baton Rouge and pick up some lovely cat traps from an even lovelier Cat Haven volunteer, AND go to see “The X-Files: I Want To Believe.” The website is [...]
Since I’m not sure that I like the politics of the original site that eventually generated these loverly Bad Cat stickers (thanks to Le Petite Fromage, but of course), I’m not hyperlinking to them. Y’all are more than capable of finding stickers/calendars/etc. on yer own. Just enjoy funny kittehs for now.
Washington State Republicans can’t even be bothered to change the copy. *Lori Sotelo, Chair of the King County Republicans, appears first in the video. In 2005, Ms. Sotelo tried to disenfranchise nearly 2,000 voters by claiming “personal knowledge” that they were incorrectly registered. The King County Canvassing Board threw out most of the challenges. Ron [...]
Shorter Jewel Woods: Women love Obama ’cause he’s purdy. We don’t even have to hear him speak – just the mere sight of him puts us into a trance. Men love Obama because he’s super-duper masculine. Cause, ya know, no one could possibly like him for any other reason. He’s a good lookin’ manly-man and [...]
Site Meter is fascinating… Y’know how I’m always bitching about living on Cancer Alley? Seems that somebody IN Cancer Alley’s been visiting… Standard Oil themselves, I guess that we should be honored, eh? Poppy Bush would be, wouldn’t he.
In the upper left corner here, that’s Hoppy, the intact ginger male with the healed-crooked broken front paw, and on the right there, that’s the little black cat of undetermined sex (though I think that it’s a boy, but black cats are SO fucking hard to see when they’re running away from you… well, not [...]
A bit post-dated, but I’m still enjoying the Jesse Helms/Wiki moment, including my own four-second contribution… (read the link first, I’m trying to save space here…) References in popular culture Lists of miscellaneous information should be avoided. (July 2008)Please relocate any relevant information into appropriate sections or articles. Musician Todd Rundgren wrote a song about [...]
In a spectacular act of complicity with the religious right, the Department of Health and Human Services Monday released a proposal that allows any federal grant recipient to obstruct a woman’s access to contraception. In order to do this, the Department is attempting to redefine many forms of contraception, the birth control 40 percent of [...]
In reverse, maybe… After I run into the grocery to hit the ATM to see if I could afford my co-pays, I stop at a local store that I hate, populated and staffed by people who I hate, to pick up a couple of prescriptions. Soon as I leave the truck, I am suddenly assaulted [...]
“Survivors of a disastrous Alpine race which ended with the deaths of two runners have spoken of how participants crawled through a snowstorm on their hands and knees and wept with exhaustion during the run up Germany’s highest mountain.” (link in title) I saw this story yesterday morning. And since I had gone to the [...]
Question: If you could waterboard just one member of the current administration, who would it be, and what would you have them confess to? Remember, waterboarding works. You will be told ANYTHING you wanted to hear, truth optional.
Oh holy fuckin’ hell: “W” began filming in May in Shreveport. Brolin plays President Bush and Wright plays former Secretary of State Colin Powell. The cast also includes Elizabeth Banks as first lady Laura Bush, Ellen Burstyn and James Cromwell as the elder Bushes and Thandie Newton as Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. I’ve been [...]
I can’t do cat blogging as I don’t have one, so I’ll introduce you to my hermies instead. Above is Tarrou “The Asshole”. Look at the tip of your pinky finger and you’ll know his general size. In hermit crab years, he’s still a baby. He’s also, as I’m sure you’ve guessed by his nickname, [...]
