Speaking of Labor Day

It’s a good day to remember the hard working people in America who: 1) Don’t get to celebrate Labor Day on May 1st like the rest of the world, 2) despite low unemployment are not seeing wage increases and 3) some of whom have to work at some really lousy workplaces. Like this woman: You […]

The questions they can’t and won’t answer….

About the GOP drive to destroy people’s lives by taking away their health insurance. Jim Wright, author of the blog Stonekettle Station in a Twitter thread throws out the hard truth that current GOP leadership, in its quest to appease the “base” and repeal the ACA, refuses to acknowledge. By the way, if you are not […]

The Zombie Eyed Granny Starver, hard at work

Yesterday afternoon, the Devil's apprentice himself, Paul Ryan ( Worthless Cocksucker-WI) and his Democratic counterpart Mrs Landingham (H/t to Charles Pierce for the term) announced they had reached a budget deal. Some deal. Rather than go for the straightforward approach of repealing the rest of the Bush tax cuts and lifting the cap on Social […]

The best favor we could do for ourselves.

Get the hell out of Afghanistan-as fast as we can. I would love to see that happen. If we can't afford to pay our employees their full salary, can't afford to buy the things the nation needs, can't afford to do the things the nation should be doing-then we don't have the money to pursue […]

Yes Virginia, these people are that crazy.

I have been watching with great interest the cries of anguish over the so called "scandals" that have your dyed in the wool member of the Teabag set, salivating and dreaming of the day they get their revenge. Just for grins I actually dropped in on the group "that prides itself on its civilized discussion"-even […]

Cry me a f*cking river.

One of the most frustrating things about this whole silly "Fiscal Cliff" nonsense is that the people supporting our Galtian overlords never tell you the whole story. They just point out the things that they want you to hear-and hope that you are not smart enough, or knowledgeable enough on tax laws to spot the […]

Breitbart still sucks

Charles Johnson has observed on several occasions that while the late, not so dearly departed, Andrew Breitbart was well and truly one of the United States’ biggest morons-the children who write in his stead can top it.   Sure enough, Breitbrat Ben Shapiro’s moronic attack on President Obama’s Thanksgiving address was rapidly picked up by the rest […]

Voting is the best revenge.

John Hinderaker and the rest of the contemptible cocksuckers  members of the Liars Club, are all up in arms over an offhand remark that Obama made in a stump speech a day ago. In a speech Obama mentioned his opponents and the crowd quite understandably began to boo-and Obama said, "No, no, no — don’t boo, […]

Guest post.

I am posting this post by my Candian Counterpart in its entirety. Its worth reading-every word-because it effectively lays to rest just about every bullshit argument we here from the ranting herd of ill-informed Fox News viewers. Take it away, Skippy Stalin: Even more troubling that the modern conservative shift in foreign and military policy […]

The 50 worst places to get your news.

Regardless of your political persuasion. The list that is given below is a rogues gallery of misinformation, diatribe, uninformed commentary, factually inaccurate reporting-and general all around mean spiritedness that can be found in the civilized word. When you hear someone saying, ” I was just reading or watching (fill in the blank) and it’s one […]

The irony, of course, is lost on them.

I love the fact that conservative supporters of the selfish, fat, ignorant, pigs teabaggers are up in arms because literally thousands of their fellow citizens exercised the same right claimed by the selfish, fat, ignorant, pigs teabaggers to assemble peaceably to express their displeasure with the government’s obsession with rewarding the top 1% of this […]
