Man, the last couple days have just not been funny. I mean, it’s sort of funny watching McCain get all jealous about a new maverick getting his press, but the laughs have been few and far between.
Via Doug Ross’ always depressing Larwyn’s Lynx, we see this hilarity from Cruz, I was out until around 3pm (5 east coast time) and watched most of the rest, but I missed this.
And I’m pretty certain–for the record, I can confirm that no teleprompter was in front of the senator from Kentucky’s desk,” said Cruz, taking a shot at President Obama’s frequent use of Teleprompters. “Senator Rand Paul, Jimmy Stewart would be proud, sir.”
A shot across the bows of TOTUS.
The Puppy Blender notices something funny about the unemployment numbers, but he forgot the most important demographic
ANOTHER UPDATE: So, basically, the more likely you are to have voted for Obama, the more likely you are to still be unemployed:
The dead, they voted from him 100% and have 0% employment.
This is the part where I defend the Rev Jesse
Jesse Jackson Compares Hugo Chavez To Founding Fathers…
I agree, they’re all dead. Of course, I’m happy about his being dead, not so happy about the rest.
What the fuck is up with California? When last we looked they were $billions in the red and Gov Moonbeam was cutting a few $million.
The new cell phone program will offer “250 talk minutes and 250 text messages” per month to anyone making less than $14,702.
If they were hoping to make it crash and burn as soon as possible, I’d be with them, but they’re counting on Obama pulling their chestnuts out of the fire.
Lifeline is a federal program paid for by a tax on phone bills called the Universal Service Charge. Enrollment in the program has skyrocketed since free cell phones were offered. The FCC has estimated the program will cost $3.3 billion by 2014.
See? Obama doesn’t have enough money for kids to tour the White House but money for free cell phones? Got ya covered.
This one is fucked up. As we all know, Obama always sides against the democracy/republic (note: Not People’s Republic and definitely not Democratic People’s Republic, he loves them), so now we see him sending a crony of Chavez to Chavez’ funeral
President Obama is sending a lawmaker whose relationship with Hugo Chavez has come under scrutiny in the past to represent the United States at the Venezuelan strongman’s funeral on Friday.
The only way I read that is Obama’s letting whoever takes over Chavez’ thugocracy know he’s got their back.
I’m torn on this one, there was one Dem who helped Rand Paul in his filibuster that has McCain’s Depends in a bunch and this guy says (Here’s the info, you decide what you want to do)
So, I would like to encourage my conservative friends to take a little time out from the Paul-a-palooza and show a little love for the sassy Senator from Oregon, perhaps thanking him for having some backbone. His contact information:

Me? I’m not fer it. He wants to hang out with people like Nancy Pelosi that’s his fucking problem. Why would me saying “attaboy” do any good? And why should I give him an attaboy for having the courage to want the president to explain if he can kill me? The worst part? That was ballsy, and that’s a whole nother can of shit.
A proponent of one of Colorado’s gun grabbing bills says
“I don’t know how on earth they can draw a casual relationship… I make no assertion that this bill will either increase or reduce violent crime. That is not the premise of the bill… I suppose more knowledge is better than less.”
Well duh. It’s about controlling free people. Trying to control criminals is hard, they don’t follow the laws.
Let Eric explain, he does it pretty well. In a long post about illegal aliens destroying the environment he writes about college students doing the same thing in Ann Arbor
Sure, there are laws against littering and dumping, but like most laws, such laws are for the law abiding. I don’t need a law to “deter” me from throwing my kitchen garbage in the street, so such laws are lost on me. Of course, for the kind of people who do throw their trash in the street, the laws are equally useless, for they are as undeterred as they are undeterrable. Moreover, the police tend not to enforce littering laws against the littering classes. It’s a question of priorities; police don’t want to squander time on “quality of life” issues. Not when there are plenty of opportunities to raise revenue ticketing affluent citizens going too fast on their way to work. The latter are much easier to deal with, and can be depended on to pay the fines that are the lifeblood of the system. This is easy to understand if you put yourself in the position of a cop. Who would you rather deal with? An affluent speeder who will take the ticket and drive away, or a bottom feeder who is unwilling even to toss his garbage into the nearest trash can and who might give you lice?
Perzactly. For those who think I overthink stuff, read Eric’s site. He’s the master of making connections that don’t look all that connected until he’s done.
US out of Afghanistan!
We can confirm that one ISAF-contracted civilian died when three individuals wearing Afghan National Security Forces uniforms and driving an ANSF vehicle forced their way on base and turned their weapons against International Security Assistance Force service members and civilians today in eastern Afghanistan. All three individuals were killed during the engagement and the area has been secured by ISAF and ANSF. Afghan and coalition officials are looking into the circumstances of this incident.
Fuck the boy fucking savgages. I’ll tell you the “circumstances”, those fucking boy-fucking savages like killing Americans. I say we tell them we’re leaving, have some SF guys make a few house calls then drop a bunch of MOABs around the place, including both sides of the Afghanistan/Pakistan border and let them know they really don’t want us coming back, cuz next time we won’t be landing, we’ll just send B-52s, A-10s, AC-130s and Apaches. Have a nice day.
I’ve been seeing this article since early in the Aughts, the Sun is refusing to do what solar scientists think it should be doing.
Sunspot numbers are well below their values from 2011, and strong solar flares have been infrequent,’ the space agency says.
The image above shows the Earth-facing surface of the Sun on February 28, 2013, as observed by the Helioseismic and Magnetic Imager (HMI) on NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory.
It observed just a few small sunspots on an otherwise clean face, which is usually riddled with many spots during peak solar activity.
But the Sun is still quiet, and that’s why global worming is “suspended”, not because Gaia stepped out for a beer.
This makes me laugh.
Experts have been baffled by the apparent lack of activity – with many wondering if NASA simply got it wrong.
The hell you say! James Hansen’s group getting the Sun wrong?!?!?!?! Will Wonders Never Cease?
Why, next you’ll be saying that Global Worming will not cause the Earth to Explode! (hilarious PDF warning)
The heat generated inside our planet is predominantly of radionic (nuclear) origin. Hence, Earth in
its entirety can be considered a slow nuclear reactor with its solid ”inner core” providing a major contribution to the total energy output. Since radionic heat is generated in the entire volume and cooling can only occur at the surface, the highest temperature inside Earth occurs at the center of the inner core. Overheating the center of the inner core reactor due to the so-called greenhouse effect on the surface of Earth may cause a meltdown condition, an enrichment of nuclear fuel and a gigantic atomic explosion.
You have to admire the mind that thought that one up. My only question is, was it for real or did Steamboat McGoo slip one in on them?
