Your Daily Dose of SQUEE®

Treatment Products

SQUEE® should only be used for the treatment of the Blahs.

Safety First

If you have never had the Blahs before, see your doctor before using any SQUEE® product. Do not use SQUEE® for external itching due to causes other than a Blahs infection. Before using a SQUEE® product, make sure to read the safety information provided below, or in your product insert.

Some do's and don'ts when using SQUEE® products:

Do not use alcohol, narcotics or other Blahs reducing products.

Do not rely on nightly news reports for happiness inducement and Blahs prevention, as they may be damaged and fail to prevent the Blahs and really mess up your whole shitty day.

Do not talk to Right Wingers.

Do not scratch the skin outside the Blahs infected area. Scratching can cause more irritation and can spread the infection.

Be aware that a mild increase in Blahs burning, itching or irritation may occur.

Do use during a tax audit.

If pregnant or breast-feeding, ask a health professional before use.

Tell your doctor about any drugs you are currently taking.

Keep out of reach of children. If swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away.

Stop use and ask your doctor if:

Symptoms do not improve in three days.

Symptoms last more than seven days.

You get a rash or hives, abdominal pain, fever, chills, nausea, vomiting or foul-smelling discharge. These may be signs that this product is not working. There may be a more serious condition present or you could be experiencing an allergic reaction.

What side effects may occur with SQUEE® anti-blahsals?

A mild increase in burning, itching, irritation or headache may occur when the product is used. Abdominal cramping has also been reported.

Stop use and ask your doctor if you have any of the following side effects while using SQUEE® anti-blahsal products:

Abdominal pain


Skin rash

Severe burning





Warning Awareness It's important to know that SQUEE® anti-blahsal products:

Are for attitudinal use only.

Are not intended to be taken by anyone under the age of 12.

Should not be used without seeing your doctor if you are having itching and discomfort for the first time. Ask a doctor before use if you have:

Itching, burning and discomfort for the first time.

Lower abdominal, back or shoulder pain, fever, chills, nausea, vomiting or foul-smelling discharge. You could have a more serious medical condition.

Blahsal infections often (such as once a month or three in six months). You could be too far gone or have a serious underlying cause for your symptoms, including diabetes or a weakened immune system.

Been exposed to Republicans or Right Wing Libertarians?
Consult a doctor or pharmacist before use if you are taking the prescription happiness inducer Deblasinol (i.e., Going Nuts), because bleeding or bruising may occur.

*If you are using SQUEE® 1-Day™ Happyazole, you do not need to see a doctor about potential interactions with the prescription Deblasinol because such interactions are not expected.

Where's your ceiling cat now?

But I miss her...

I'm guessing that is wasn't hard enough for some guy at working at WNDU...

If it's Sunday, it's Meet The Right...

I just slew my first housefly opponent of the summer in righteous combat

I gave it a viking funeral, as was custom.

Victory is mine.

How America became uncompetitive and unequal


Lina Khan is a policy analyst for the Markets, Enterprise and Resiliency Initiative at the New America Foundation. Sandeep Vaheesan is special counsel at the American Antitrust Institute.

Since the early 1980s, executives and financiers have consolidated control over dozens of industries across the U.S. economy. From cable companies and hospitals to airlines, grocery stores and meatpackers, where once many small and mid-size businesses competed, today we see a few giants dominate. They use their power to raise prices, drive down wages and foreclose opportunity. Wealth is transferred from consumers, workers and entrepreneurs to affluent executives and shareholders.

The ongoing debate in America over economic inequality — as seen, for instance, in the Occupy movement and the success of Thomas Piketty’s “Capital in the Twenty-First Century” — is a vital one. But it is incomplete. The challenge is not limited to the decline of organized labor, tax cuts for the well-off and the increased power of Wall Street. The lack of competition in many sectors of the U.S. economy is also a powerful driver of economic disparity.

Take the $2.5 trillion health-care industry, where rising costs are fueled in good part by consolidation. A frenzy of mergers starting in the 1990s has meant that most Americans today live in areas where there is little competition among hospitals. Studies show that after merging, hospitals routinely raise prices. As detailed in Time last year, many hospitals now mark up services from a routine blood test to chemotherapy by as much as several hundred percent. In health care alone, market power redistributes hundreds of billions of dollars in wealth upward annually.

The same is true in other sectors. Meager competition among cable providers and the growing market power of large content owners have enabled Comcast, Time Warner Cable and others to raise the price of subscriptions at close to three times the rate of inflation since 2008. High-speed broadband presents a similar picture: Americans now pay more than double what European consumers pay. Merger mania in the airline industry — where eight majors have combined to create four giant carriers over the past decade — has resulted in fare increases of as much as 65 percent on certain routes.


It's a surprise that I still have a roof over my head...

I still don't understand why people would want to listen to him.
