How did this happen?

If you still can’t believe that President Trump (gosh that was fun to write and yes, I wrote it deliberately hoping someone who reads this is triggered and has to retreat to a Safe Space with their blanky) is, in fact, the legally elected, legitimate President of the United States and you just can’t understand […]

Tasteless and not even original

IF you follow trending topics, you’ve probably heard of or seen the Lena Dunham video comparing voting for the first time to losing your virginity (and of course, that you should do it with Obama).  Reaction around the net has been, shall we say, less than positive (except in, of course, leftist circles where it […]

Really?

I watched (part of) the national news this evening.  I almost never watch the national news.  It’s bad for my health and the continued viability of my TV as a functioning piece of electronics.  ABC (yeah, I know; compound error) was running their obligatory coverage about the Aurora shooting “suspect.”   They were talking about his […]

11!!eleventy!!11!!

The Head Rat has the TV on in the other room.  I wasn’t really paying attention, but there must have been someone injured when a plane got into some heavy turbulence in the past day or so, because they were doing the whole “scary story, fear for your life and safety” thing.  They had me […]

A quick reminder

Dr. Boli recently posted A Glossary of Common Terms in Journalism.  As the political nonsense gets more intense in this election year, you might want to check out the Glossary as a quick reminder of what the press is really talking about.  Among my favorites: Balanced. Giving equal weight to truth and falsehood. and Skewed. […]

PQRN and Torrents

SOPA. Crap. ‘Nuff said. Except it isn’t.  Massive outrage gets a temporary victory, but this will be back in another form as soon as the furor dies down a bit.  Meanwhile, Larry Correia has a great rant about SOPA and all the other stuff we’ve let happen.  Go read it.  It’s worth it to get […]
