I keep reading that phrase in the press stories about Bush selling American's ports to OBL's good friends, the oligarchs of the UAE, and now Grand Vizier Rove uses it. Just throw a few bullet points Congress's way, that's the ticket: Read below the fold...

It's kinda nice to look around once in awhile and remember that there are other people in the world who do science. We may be in our seventh year under thick damn clouds, but elsewhere the stars still shine. And sometimes they get all pissy and start spitting gamma rays all over hell and gone and then WOW! Shit gets interesting! Read below the fold...

(This may become a series, albeit widely separated by time and motivation.)
I donâ€™t usually like to blog on personal topics, but Iâ€™m motivated to share because frankly, Iâ€™m confused and I donâ€™t know what to think. I realized this past weekend how mature the blogosphere is, so Iâ€™m confident that some of you out there have some wisdom to share. Read below the fold...

My father would make that joke when he came home from work. But I never really understood what he meant, 'til I went to work for the corporate moloch... Read below the fold...

Another failure for Republican social engineering? What a surprise! AP:
A report released by the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys was based on an analysis of 61,335 people who have gone to credit counseling agencies, the required first step before filing bankruptcy under the law that took effect on Oct. 17. Read below the fold...

Charles Manson is not yet sure if he'll abuse his new position to foment discord, start race riots, or to appear on American Idol.
(Jivester News, Lmtd.) The Bush Administration has formally announced which organization will receive the highly coveted Federal Prison Maintenance contract, and it was no surprise that the winner is Charles Manson, who will take over the post right after Congress shits its pants.

Now it all makes sense. (For awhile, I was thinking this was a Rove-ian ploy--a way to let Republicans show their "independence" by standing up to Bush for once. Fat chance!) Just read between the lines of this story from AP (Mr. Subliminal in italics): Read below the fold...

Yes, you heard me right. As I noted yesterday, Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell has announced his intention to veto a bill called, HB1318 or, misleadingly, the "Voter Protection Act of 2006." This takes a certain amount of balls (hmm...a cup and a half? 27 yards? Sixteen tons? Maybe not a good metaphor, but there ya go) to come out against such a thing, since that automatically means you are in favor of Vote Fraud. Read below the fold...
