Quote of the Day (from yesterday)

From the guys at Hillbuzz: But, we still can’t figure out why Avatar makes so much money.  We thought it was essentially Disney’s Pocahontas, but with Smurf-cats and a planet that had about 6 different kinds of animals on it, all of which were just blue, six legged versions of the animals here.  Like they […]

This should be one of those “well, duh” statements

Unfortunately, it isn’t.  In a very pointed piece about the announcement that our Dear Leader’s new economic plan is to freeze (not cut) discretionary spending,  Ghettoputer at Gormogons had this to say: Leaving aside for the moment the soon-to-come anguished cries from public sector unions that a spending freeze (not cut) will kill babies and […]

Video links

Two selections for all you video connoisseurs out there. The Beatles’ Tax Man, starring our Dear Leader. The Day Obamacare Died (with, I’m assuming, apologies to Don MacLean) starring our Dear Leader or a reasonable facsimile thereof.

In which Cziltang takes credit for the election result in Massachusetts

Massachusetts.  Yes, I can spell it correctly.  Without using the spell-check on my word processor. Having not been terribly politically active in the past 30 years (the last time I contributed to a political campaign was for John Anderson in 1980), it has been extremely gratifying to know that my support is the reason Massachusetts […]

Cleaning out the browser

An odd collection of links tonight: First, an article which looks at a number of  “Gansta vs. Cop” shooting issues.  That description isn’t nearly as interesting as the article.  Among other points, contrary to what I believed, “Gangstas” actually get more shots on target than the Cops they are shooting at.  The author speculates that […]

Random thoughts

After having watched the new Star Trek movie, I am struck by how well Wynona Ryder does frightened, dazed and confused. Assuming you are interested in dating, does someone who has a bumper sticker on their vehicle that says “Let go of my ears, I know what I’m doing” sound like someone with a skill […]

The Audio-Visual post

I”m going to work in a few minutes, but I thought I’d share these: A marginally more subtle graphic than I usually link to. A definitely NSFW animation entitled “Hooker was a Democrat”.  By the way, the animation is done at a site called Xtranormal.  It’s easy.  I’ve done a couple of simple ones, but […]

Quick, click another link; Cziltang is on about Global Warming again

When I was in grade school I had a crush on a girl in my class.  She was cute and very sweet and smart and I really, really liked her.  Of course, I never said anything to her, although once (in the 6th grade, I think) I brought her a bouquet of flowers I had […]

On 3rd parties

For Wildhorse, a piece by the guys at Hillbuzz on campaign tactics, why liberals love (and support) 3rd parties that take principled conservative and libertarian types away from the Republicans and other goodies. If you extrapolate the argument just a bit, you come to the inescapable conclusion (if they are right) that the only way […]

And then depression set in

Long day yesterday.  Short night last night.  Not looking too good for tonight either.  But, THIS makes me happy.  (No, I don’t want to think about the labor involved, etc. etc. etc.  Yes, it’s the kind of thing that could only be done in China.  I don’t care, it just looks cool anyway.)
