“Liberals Love Dictatorships”

Help! Help! I’m Being Repressed Tea Part Nation’s President Judson Phillips is again harping on the inherent evils of liberalism and claimed (indirectly, of course) that most if not all of my FTB bloggers want a great dictatorship. Ok, PZ might, but only if our great supreme godless overload of + 9000 hate points was …

NRA claims Obama is Orchestrating a Massive Conspiracy… by Doing Nothing

They took our jobs…guns…well not yet but maybe someday. Big governmental conspiracies always make me chuckle. If working in the Army has taught me anything about the government, it’s that we are far too collectively incompetent to keep a massive secret well…secret for long, especially if that secret is tied to controversial idea.

Fringe Returns!

I just caught the last half of Fringe’s (The X-files that makes sense) fourth season premier. With True Blood, Burn Notice, and Suits done for a while at least we have John Noble’s portrayal of the delightfully insane Walter to grace TV and computer screens everywhere for the next few months.
