Who’s This Guy? And What Has He Done With My President?

Earlier this week, President Obama officially approved the release of Cryptowars II: Cryptkeeper's Revenge by approving legislation that would (basically), require "back doors" be placed in all encryption programs (like Tor, for example), that would otherwise prevent online activities from being tracked by prying eyes. "Mr. Potato Head...MR. POTATO HEAD!" "But why would people want to cover their online tracks anyway? People who use that kind of encryption are probably shady anyway!" One answer? Journalists. "Been IMing the folk on WikiLeaks I see... Let's have a chat about that upcoming article of yours....at…Read more …

Long, Dark, Texas Tea Time of the Soul

"I don't know why the question isn't asked by the mainstream media and others if there's any connection with the contributions made to his administration, and the support by the oil companies to the administration.." -Sarah "Alaskan Oil Dividends" Palin - You know, I haven't talked a lot about the oil spill in the Gulf, and if we're being entirely honest with one another it's because I've been pulling an ostrich maneuver. Every time a news program shows me pictures of tar-covered herons and dead Kemp Ridleys, I lower my eyes and push…Read more …

Dear Senator Hutchison,

I don't imagine the following will do one bit of good...but I feel a helluva lot better after sending it.Senator Hutchison, I've written to you on several occasions and your usual response it to either ignore me, or mail form letters to my home address featuring the latest in non-sequitur arguments. As such you'll at least understand, if not forgive, that this time around I'm going to be less than cordial.If I wanted to understand why people wore coonskin caps, how transistor radios changed the face of America, or the origins of that…Read more …

**Disclaimer**

The following video contains complete and utter lunatics engaging in pants-on-head retarded discourse.Avoid watching if such things give you nausea.*retch*j.s.--Despite the obvious need for sodium/potassium beer helmets for these morons (seriously, I'm amazed they didn't spend the entire day accidentally killing one another), I do still stand against this healthcare reform bill. And while it's sweet that the kids who made the video think "the greed of the medical-industrial complex [and] the lies of the right-wing propaganda machine" are all that's standing between us and universal healthcare, it's also rather pedantic.Folks, we start…Read more …

Glenn Beck Did Not Rape and Murder a Girl in 1990

I realize it's a sophist response to all the empty blustering of the knuckle-dragging "Birthers." And I must admit that I did laugh at a few of the posts. But I'm still not so sure about this... GlennBeckRapedandMurderedaYoungGirlin1990.comBasic Premise: There is no proof that Glenn Beck did not rape and murder a girl in 1990, which means he might have. As such, he needs to answer some serious questions about it to the media immediately. I mean, Glenn Beck is utterly insane... Did we really need to poison the well here?*j.s.*Yikes. His ratings…Read more …

A Bit About Healthcare

Some of you know this, some of your don't, but my day job is as a mild-mannered IT manager for a healthcare billing company. And with all the recent talk about a "single-party payer system!" and "socialized medicine!" and "well, it works in France!" I'd like to take a moment to talk about our current socialized insurance plan, Medicare. Medicare is one of the biggest causes of the increased cost of healthcare in this country.Or, if you like, you can read that as: our government is one of the biggest cause of the…Read more …
