What should be Fox News new scary word


or maybe


With the Rethugs it used to be the 3 Gs: Guns, Gays, and God. Now it's the 2 Ds


Dark (money)

Likely actions if Shrub was Prez when Ebola hit:

1. Haliburton would have all government contracts.

2. Shrub would have ignored initial cases by dismissing them as the "trots."

3. His ranch would be shrink wrapped in plastic and duct tape. Furnished by--see No. 1 above.

4. His comments would have included, "I didn't know Freedonia was in Africa in our hemisphere and I thought ebola was a computer bowling game."

5. The terrorist alert color system would be going off like Chevy Chase's Christmas house.

6. Cheney would still go to Texas and shoot somebody in the face.

7. Bin Laden would be getting the blame because he would still be out there.

Fear the coming plague that is...

the Rethugs taking over the Senate. They would own the Senate, the House, the Supreme Court, Fox News, and Talk Radio.

Hey,wait a minute. I thought there were only 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Well, maybe the Four Dumb Asses of the Klown College.

Ebola, you got nothing on this line up?

Fox Promotes FEAR


Germany Eliminates College Tuition--U.S. Students Drown in Debt



Germany has just joined other nations of the Continental European Union to eliminate all university tuition, as a human right. So it is that we find ourself as part of the neofeudalist American state that has left Americans, by contrast, mired in $1.2 trillion in student loan debt, in what must be described as state-supported student loan slavery. It should further be noted that the modus operandi of student loan enslavement is consistent with the anti-democratic model of what may only be described as the United States of oligarchy. A recent Princeton university study, that has since gone viral from Princeton, has declared the United States is no longer a democracy, and has in fact become an oligarchy. To which this article notes, it is an oligarchy that has mired the American people in $1.2 trillion of student loan debt. This has become so onerous for the American economy to bear that it is now become a threat to the US economy itself.

In Germany a student you get a hand up, in the U.S. students get handed an anvil.

Tan Man's Empty Jobs Plan Tweet


House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) invited an afternoon of mockery on Tuesday after he (or at least his staff) shot off a peculiar tweet about the GOP's jobs plan.


In a tweet linking to his "5 Points for Resetting America's Economic Foundation," Boehner ended up leaving the five bullet points blank, ready for any mischievous Twitter rascal to submit their own:

1. Weekly tanning maintenance.
2. Default on the debt.
3. Give Idiot Cruz my office.
4. Make staff roll his cigarettes as piece work.
5. Create a new Benghazi committee to oversee current Benghazi committee.

Burns' PBS Special on FDR

There was a part in the special I was watching last night where a worker was quoted as saying he liked FDR because he was the only President who understood his was boss was an SOB.

FDR. A great man.

Code Pink: "We need Smart Senators, not Smart Bombs."



Protesters from the group Code Pink repeatedly interrupted Senate hearings on military action the U.S. is taking against ISIS, an army of Islamic radicals in Iraq.

At a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on Tuesday, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel was thanking the committee for their support when Code Pink protester Medea Benjamin stood up with a large pink sign reading “More War = More Extremism.”

Unfortunately, the one percent's military industrial complex is designed to produce dumb senators and smart bombs. Not to mention astronomical profits.

Lasting Obama Legacy in the Courts


WASHINGTON — Democrats have reversed the partisan imbalance on the federal appeals courts that long favored conservatives, a little-noticed shift with far-reaching consequences for the law and President Obama’s legacy.

For the first time in more than a decade, judges appointed by Democratic presidents considerably outnumber judges appointed by Republican presidents. The Democrats’ advantage has only grown since late last year when they stripped Republicans of their ability to filibuster the president’s nominees.

Democratic appointees who hear cases full time now hold a majority of seats on nine of the 13 United States Courts of Appeals. When Mr. Obama took office, only one of those courts had more full-time judges nominated by a Democrat.

Good news that is little known.

What's all this fuss I'm hearing about

women wearing yogurt pants. Can't they wear regular pants or a dress. It seems like wearing a dairy product all day would be hard to accessorize.

Excuse me, but that's Yoga pants, not Yogurt Pants. Yoga pants.

Never mind.

Thank you Gilda/Emily.
