Dr. Goddess Teaches us How to Fight

Absolutely knockout story in the Post-Gazette today. The issue being fought over is hardly even relevant--except that it's a local matter, being fought by a local person, making ties to local institutions....hmm, maybe this is relevant after all:

Net Neutrality: My Buttboi Speaks

Thread: 

Ntodd thinks just because he's a professor of computer science, he knows more than I do about Net Neutrality. I'm not going to read it, because whatever he says is just his way of asking me to use the bigger strap-on during his next session in my dungeon, but perhaps you can make some sense out of his prattle.

In all seriousness, I've not yet thought about his arguments or investigated them, but I do think it's worth considering what he says, even as I may still end up disagreeing. Share your own thoughts. Read more about Net Neutrality: My Buttboi Speaks

Framing: The Cheneyspawn

From now on, please use the term fatherless, out of wedlock pregnancy to refer to Mary's Immaculate Conception.

I won't pick on the kid once it's born, but for now, the mommy is fair game. I was inspired to post this by His Lordship. Read more about Framing: The Cheneyspawn

DLC's Bayh bows out

What a shame. What a shame. Obama and Hillary have already sucked all the oxygen out of the race.

And I'm trying to remember, but I think there's another DLC fave I'd like to see crash and burn, to put and end to this triangulation shit once and for all, and return the Dems to permanent majority status.... Read more about DLC's Bayh bows out

In case you thought IQ tests were racist and classist

Forbes rates "America's smartest cities" based on percentage of college graduates.

In a world where George W. Bush gets undergrad and graduate degrees from the two most venerable names in education, one might imagine that economic opportunity plays a bit of a role in that, doncha think? Read more about In case you thought IQ tests were racist and classist

Guantanam-error

Tags: 

When is an enemy combatant not an enemy combatant? Quite frequently, apparently.

The Pentagon called them "among the most dangerous, best-trained, vicious killers on the face of the Earth," sweeping them up after Sept. 11 and hauling them in chains to a U.S. military prison in southeastern Cuba.

Since then, hundreds of the men have been transferred from Guantanamo Bay to other countries, many of them for "continued detention."

And then set free.

Why would that be? Read more about Guantanam-error

The Army, It is Broke

Departments: 
Thread: 

The Smirking Chimp has a story you need to read. The Army is broke. Despite a military budget of circa half a trillion bucks per year, plus innumerable billions of "supplementals" and off budget appropriations...they are out of money. Read this before you evaluate whether any of these "surge of new troops to Iraq" stories are steaming piles of fecal matter:

Maestro, Cue Final Movement, Beethoven's 9th

Per NYT

Judith Regan, the firebrand editor who stirred up decade-old passions last month with her plans for a book and television interview with O. J. Simpson, was fired late Friday by HarperCollins, the publishing company that oversaw her book business.

Christianists at Wright-Patterson AFB fuck non-Christians' careers, use prayer as a decision-making aid

It's the abuse of power, stupid.

From personal testimonials in the Compliance Report (PDF) at the Military Religious Freedom Foundation:

I worked at Wright Patterson Air Force Base for just over a year as a civilian contractor. This is what I experienced:

Don(e)

Bush has nothing but praise for ex-employee Donald Rumsfeld:

“Every decision Don Rumsfeld made over the past six years, he always put the troops first, and the troops knew it,” Bush said.

This is true. Read more about Don(e)

FCC:FU!

You will enjoy this. A lot. It occurs to me, serious and unfunny person that I am, that it makes a lot of sense for our side, and those Powers That Be in the Party in particular, reach out to media professionals. This is a slick, catchy, easy to remember, low cost, funny way of making a point. Surely only the most dour and constipated with religion and "moral values" would fail to laugh. You can read more about the people who made it here.

Hat tip to reader Peggy Ann. Luv ya, kitten! Read more about FCC:FU!

Breast Cancer and Horse Piss

NPR has a Friday news dump story up that everyone should pay attention to. Especially if you own stock in a certain pharmaceutical company. The short version: if I were a lawyer, I'd be rushing to court right now with the class action papers, because a life of wealth and ease would come shortly after that.
