Lara Logan, I Tip My Smack-o-Matic 3000 to You

If you watch only one video today, make it this one: Some select quotes: “I did a piece with Navy Seals once. It took me six months of begging, screaming, breaking down walls, crawling on my knees to get that embed. And when I came back with that story, I was told, ‘these guys, you …

Dear Ken Ham: You Suck Leper Donkey Dick

This requires escalation. Dear Ken Ham: You are the boil on the ass of humanity. You’re an infantile fuckwit whose insistence on the truth of fairy tales promotes nothing but ignorance and hate. I’ve known syphillitic penises smarter than you (and this is after the disease has progressed to general paresis). You, sir, suck leper …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. Really fucking unhappy right now. Not only did Congress flush the Fourth Amendment down the loo, they seem hell-bent on shitting away what fragments of sanity they have left: Just when you thought a Congress could not debase itself any further, having just approved massive funding for the Iraq …

Morals Come From Plenty of Places Other Than God

In Summerian mythology, the gods sent a flood to wipe out humanity because humans were too noisy. Enlil didn’t appreciate being kept up at night. Seems it never occurred to him to just ask the silly buggers to keep it down. I can sympathize. My neighbors threw a party tonight, and it was like pulling …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. Speaker Pelosi adds insult to injury: On the very same day that the House Dems passed the new FISA cave, Speaker Nancy Pelosi blasted out a fundraising email this afternoon with this… As Speaker, I can tell you that we need a Democrat in the White House and a …

We Lost Our Liberties. What’s Next?

Words cannot expressed how pissed I am right now. Infuriated, appalled, shocked, outraged, betrayed, horrified, and howling mad merely scratch the surface. The fucking spineless bastards in our House of Representatives decided today that the Fourth Amendment has to take the back seat when it comes to “security.” Utter fucking bullshit. What’s worse, Obama turned …

Time to Tie Up the Phones

The vote to immunize telecoms and eviscerate our civil liberties could come as soon as noon EST today. Time to make some calls. The louder we howl, the more likely it is we’ll get heard. Need motivation? Try Digby: Pace Godwin, the idea that it’s a good principle to indemnify corporations from law breaking when …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. Ain’t nothing happy about this. CQ reports (sub. req.) that “a final deal has been reached” on FISA and telecom amnesty and “the House is likely to take up the legislation Friday.” I’ve now just read a copy of the final “compromise” bill. It’s even worse than expected. When …

Call Obama

Just as I’m getting ready to drag myself and my cramps back to bed for a couple hours’ worth of sleep, I get hit with this: Obama, telecoms and the Beltway system As noted yesterday, Blue Dog Rep. John Barrow of Georgia has been one of the most enthusiastic enablers of the radical and lawless …

What’s the Harm? So Glad You Asked

I’m fast losing my tolerance for woo of all forms. Look – psychics, tarot readers, feng shui, and all that rot’s not a bad or evil thing as long as it’s just entertainment, but when people forget it’s simply a bit of fun and start taking it this fucking seriously, there’s a problem: Colleen Leduc …
