Fiorina is "Pro-Life" yet against paid maternity leave


Republican presidential candidates like Carly Fiorina openly object to the notion of laws guaranteeing paid maternity and paternity leave, which would benefit families greatly, but they never hesitate to profess their love of protecting non-viable zygotes. Her “proud pro-life” rhetoric is as laughable as her unsuccessful stint at Hewlett-Packard.

Doesn't such contradiction in logic eventually lead to spontaneous combustion?

If this guy was African-American I think he would be dead, not tasered.


The sheriff of Bradford County in Florida shared a dash cam video on his Facebook page showing an older white man being Tasered after stepping out of his SUV and aggressively approaching an officer complaining about the lights on his police cruiser, WJAX reports.

He looked like the angry "Sovereign Citizen" lunatic to me.

I curse the devil who invented clamshell packaging.

A Great Anniversary: 41 years ago today Nixon Resigns.

I remember it well. For me it ranks up there with the Apollo moon landing as a truly memorable occasion. Today, at the his library, they should have a guy in a Nixon mask greet everyone with that infamous last wave before he boarded the helicopter.

NYT: Tale of a Chicken Hawk Taker--L. Graham



By all accounts, including his own, Senator Lindsey Graham was a good military lawyer during the six and a half years he spent on active duty in the Air Force before he entered politics.

Since leaving active duty in 1989 and joining the Air Force Reserve, Mr. Graham, a Republican from South Carolina who is running for president, appears to have performed very little substantive work for the Air Force. Yet, he rose in rank to colonel and remained in the service until his retirement in June, which entitles him to a monthly $2,773 pension.

Banging the war drums on Iran, collecting an undeserved pension, Graham is the typical Reich Wing chicken hawk, hold your coat while you fight, low-life.

Can we get this guy to moderate the GOP debate in August

The Constitutional Peasant. My hero.

Bankers and Math

Today, a conversation with a bank employee trying to preauthorize a foreign money bank transfer with exchange rates involved:

E: I need the approximate amount you want to preauthorize.

Me: It is approximately 100 dollars.

E: I need the exact amount.

Me: I thought you wanted the approximate amount

E: It's the same thing.

No wonder we bailed the banks out.

Facebook Etiquette Question

How do you feel about getting in a flame war on Facebook on someone else's page, not with the author of the page, but with someone who commented on that page?

Krugman: GOP base loves Trump because he is loudmouthed, belligerent racist just like they are.


New York Times columnist Paul Krugman appeared on Bloomberg Television Monday to discuss the appeal of Donald Trump to Republicans, and the Princeton economist pulled no punches.

“He’s a belligerent, loudmouthed racist with not an ounce of compassion for less fortunate people,” Krugman argued. “In other words, he’s exactly the kind of person the Republican base consists of and identifies with.”

“It’s clear that the very things that Upper West Side New Yorkers find detestable about him are exactly what endear him to the Republican base,” he continued. “Which is basically people who see in him everything — even the big red face and the yelling — that makes him their kind of guy.”

The next sound you hear is the detonation of Reich Wing heads throughout the land. Lovely.

Scout and Opus back in the same week.
