Limbaugh's little bomb threat a publicity stunt?

And why did he call the police? That is a socialist, government agency.

We seem to have a new batch of trolls

I have encountered several low count posters who have demonstrated their true colors.

They do come in swarms, don't they.

GM May Spend $500M On Employee Bonuses

DETROIT (AP) — General Motors is likely to spend more than $500 million on employee bonuses and profit-sharing based on the company's performance last year.

GM, which made a record profit in 2011, will pay bonuses of at least $182 million to white-collar workers such as engineers, car designers and managers on Wednesday, according to a formula obtained by The Associated Press. That's on top of $332.5 million in profit-sharing it already agreed to pay factory workers.

In the past, such payments have drawn criticism from those who believe the government shouldn't have bailed out GM and Chrysler. But GM, which made a record $7.6 billion last year, says the payments are needed to hold on to skilled employees. It's also keeping fixed costs down by giving bonuses instead of annual pay raises.

The bonuses will go to most of the company's 26,000 salaried employees, many of whom make more than $100,000 a year. The bonuses will range from 8 percent of base pay to 14 percent, according to the formula.


The up-side: This is more evidence of the success of the economy and the Presidents bail out.

The down-side: This is only for white collar workers, not the rank and file labor employees. (that is a shame).

An Amish farmer and the Teabagger...

An Amish farmer is walking through his field when he sees a guy drinking from his pond, scooping it up with his hand.

The farmer says, "Trinken nicht das Wasser, die Kuhe und die Schweine haben in ihm geschissen" (which means, “Don't drink the water. The cows and the pigs have shit in it.”).

The guy shouts back, "I'm a Teabagger, and this is America. I don't understand your gibberish. Speak English, you moron."

The farmer says, "Use two hands. You'll get more."

Michelle Duggar's submissive-wife tips

That is just sickening

Duggar mom's secret to long marriage is wifely submission
If you can't seem to glean any tips for a lasting marriage from "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," there's another reality-TV star who has some wifely words of advice. Michelle Duggar, the unceasingly pregnant mom on (for now) "19 Kids and Counting," has been nabbed handing out pamphlets with nuggets of submissive wedded wisdom. Gems include never bringing up hubby's past failures (it will crush his spirit), looking at him "admiringly when he talks to others," and always "[accepting] him as a leader and [believing] in his God-given responsibilities." In other words, as @StephanieRogers indicates, "a blueprint for the ideal Stepford wife, Self-Replicating Fundamentalist Edition™," and based on the furor over Michele Bachmann's comments, the pamphlets won't win the Duggars any new viewers.


Why do women think they have to be submissive to their husbands? I don't think I would enjoy the company of my wife if she were submissive and looked at me like that.
