Odd thing about the right and Cubans

Ask them whether we should grant citizenship to people who enter the uS unlawfully.

I've been waiting for one to say, "I suppose now Obama will grant amnesty to illegals from Cuba."

Um, wait....

Police Killings In Jamaica - Race Not A Factor, Figures Much Higher


Since 2000, security forces have reported killing nearly 3,000 people on the island of 2.7 million. Last year, 258 people died at the hands of law enforcement. In comparison, police fatally shot 13 people last year in Chicago, a US city with the same population as Jamaica.

Almost all of those killed have been written off by police as armed criminals who died in shootouts. A tiny percentage of the cases have made it to the courts, and only one Jamaican officer has been convicted of an unlawful killing since 2006, according to a 2013 human rights report by the US State Department.

I just got a call from the "Computer Support Department"

...which sounded like it was located in a foreign call center.

Usually I pretend to be playing along and acting really, really dumb by misinterpreting every one of their instructions.... "Wait, you want me to turn the internet off? I don't know how to do that!"

Eventually they get fed up, or I get tired of acting, and we do not part amicably.

Today it was:

"Que? No hablo Ingles. Espanol por favor."

For a moment there, when I got that the guy understood what I was asking, and was going to either take a stab at it or switch me to someone else.

But, alas, he was not up to my blowing smoke up his ass in Spanish either, but he very politely apologized for not speaking Spanish.

It's good to know the scammers have upped their customer service standards.

Have we had the "Thanksgiving Dinner Ends In Shooting" story yet?

And, if not, is there a pool on which state gets to claim firsties?

I'll put in a spot on Pennsylvania. Texas and Florida nutballs come and go, but there's a respectably steady supply of them in PA.

what's the best way to wash a condom?

Kentucky: Obama/2012 - 37% Lundergan-Grimes/2014 - 41%

No matter how you slice it, Allison Lundergan Grimes received a higher percentage of the Kentucky vote in a midterm election than President Obama did in the presidential vote in 2012.

This simple observation does not support the conclusion that being perceived as more closely aligned with President Obama would have helped her against a longstanding incumbent Senator.

I would think Kentuckians would find Mitt Romney to be much less desirable a candidate than Mitch McConnell.

Medical Testing Question....

Okay, so there are saliva tests, urine tests, stool tests, blood tests and so on.

Are there any fart tests? I mean, could you learn diagnostic information from the composition of farts?

The upcoming hypocrisy parade on the AG

In the fevered right wing imagination, Eric Holder is the central figure of any number of evil conspiracies.

So, one would think that the Republicans would jump on his offer to leave office as soon as his successor is confirmed.

But instead, Boehner has proposed that no replacement be confirmed until next year.

How long is it going to take their followers to realize that the only thing standing between them and finally getting rid of this horrible man, is their own leadership?

Bike Delaware Receiving Donations In Memory of Phillip Bishop

Phillip Bishop was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver on Brackenville Road in Hockessin while biking home from his job at the Pure Bread Deli in Greenville.

The owner of the vehicle has been found, arrested and charged.

The Bishop family has requested donations in lieu of flowers to Bike Delaware, working for a walkable, bikeable Delaware:


Phillip Bishop was a committed environmentalist and lover of the outdoors. He kept a garden at home where he grew everything from squash to sunflowers, and had a passion for backpacking and hiking. After returning from a two week backpacking trip in Montana last summer, Phillip was inspired to take up cycling, seeing it both as a way to get outdoors as well as simplify his life and carbon footprint.

RFK ID's Suspect In JFK Assassination

2:57 mark

"I had a member of my own family killed, but he was killed by a white man.":

Why didn't RFK say "white men", or even know the racial composition of the crew?
