How about a little good news, for me anyway? It appears my insurance company is weary of fucking around and has paid out on some of the work I’ve missed due to health issues over the last few weeks. Which means there will be no more blegging until my usual holiday season hit-up. And speaking …

A customer service reality check for Morning Joe

Watching the crew on Morning Joe this morning it struck me, the celebrities on panel must have a ton of personal assistants taking care of their chores. Or something, because even for the ones on “my side,’ it almost appears they haven’t had to call a typical customer service line, you know, the kind normal …

The insidious plot to sap and impurify our precious bodily fluids

We are facing virtual Armageddon, the Republic may not survive. It started out as a full frontal assault on America and apple pie, but the situation is even now dire: there is a website on the Internet that is slow to load, it often times out and, worst of all, it is taken down for …

Shutdown deal in the works

Let the historical revisionism begin. Take it away Teatards! Rep. Labrador says it’s “absolutely false” that GOP sought Obamacare repeal. ” We have never asked for a full repeal of Obamacare…” — @mpoindc Imagine someone ostensibly in a position of knowledge said something utterly incomprehensible.

Default aint just an actor in war movies

It seems the Senate came up with a plan of sorts to save the nation from economic Armageddon. Naturally, a few dozen members of the House of Teaparty wax dummies had to be placated less their fee-fees be hurt and it fell apart. Which leaves one day to get it together and maybe one weekend …
