Goodness me! Is it laughing at the yahoos time again? The yahoos keep coming up with such easy bull idiocy to mock.
The News Hour posed the topic, "Whose Version of History Is Taught?", when a state bans folks from studying the history and the contributions of people like themselves. See the video.
Cenk Uygur, of The Young Turks, called out the large American Corporations who are asking for a tax holiday, as if this is something novel and unexpected. Business -- big business -- uses government as its tool to make its businesses prosper.
Bolton was chit chatting and raising the threat of the bogeyman, and shrilling away on why we must stop trusting ourselves and start? / begin trusting the BOMB, and the military-industrial complex, (MIC).
Mr Bolton gets paid to shrill for the MIC.
Tucker Carlson gets paid to be a fool, pretending to be a wise man, to fool the idiots. Fox News is the perfect venue for him..
Both Bolton and Carlson claim that START is going to disarm America of her nukes and leave her at the tender mercy of the Russians. And these two doofuses says, America is doing this because of Obama. More Fox lies.
Anyway, he railed against Michael Vick, the NFL star quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles, who spent 19 months in prison on a conviction for dog fighting. Mr Carlson said that Mr. Vick should have been executed for dog killing.
Fat head conservatives are different from you and me?
There is a new scientific study out by University College London researchers that reports the brains of the right-leaning conservatives have "big amygdala, small anterior cingulate," larger 'fear centers'.
Let me repeat that -- University College London researchers say brains of the right-leaning people have big amygdala, small anterior cingulate. In other words, that the right winger are different from you and me. Their "brains are structured differently than the brains of other people."
Police Brutality and Racism In A Conn. Town?
The Associated Press reports that the Department of Justice has started a civil rights investigation, and the FBI has opened a criminal probe of the East Haven, Conn., police department for system wide police abuse of the town's Hispanic community, including false arrests, beatings and torture.
The Fear Mongering Offensive
Yesterday Cenk Uygur, of The Young Turks, guest hosting on the Ed Schultz Show on MSNBC, took a well-deserved kick at that neo-con hot head and fibber mouth, George W. Bush's UN Ambassador, John Bolton, who is out hawking about threats, threats, and threats, fear mongering for the Military-Industrial Complex, doing his job as one of its retainers, to help it in the fight to fight off some politicians, Democrats and Republicans, who are looking at the needs of America, and are looking at the growing debt and deficit, and who are mumbling about, that maybe, cuts in defense spending, maybe, should be considered. Just maybe.
The Wall Street goobers, whose greed and deception caused the global financial crisis, that led to the Great Recession, were saved by Washington, and suffered no tangible consequences for the harm and damage that their misdeeds wrought . They managed to manage Washington and received not even the slightest real penalty for their foul play.
That’s an incredibly sobering thought. And with the coral reefs, many other species will perish due to loss of habitat—not to mention due to the same bleaching and poisoning that is killing the coral reefs in the first place—as well.
I guess everyone knew it couldn't last forever. It was the bee's knees to control the entire government for a couple years, but now the Democrats are going to have to give up the House of Representatives to a buzz-killing Republican majority. No more all-night keggers, no more secret hazing rituals, no more drawing various cartoon genitalia on the bald heads of sleeping Senators. I'm gonna miss the fun we've had, so to commemorate some of the best moments, I'm immortalizing them in my diary.
The blogosphere and main stream media too are buzzing with news of President Obama's call to Jeffrey Lurie, the owner of the NFL Eagles. So I may as well weight in with my opinion,
The DEA don't cut no ice with Mr. Karzai
Well, like a street dude would put it, in so many words, Mr Karzai, the President of Afghanistan. ain't gonna cooperate with no stinking DEA agents, and ain't gonna quit helping his drug buddies, and ain't gonna stop getting them out of jail, when they get busted.
The New York Times, wi'th the benefit of a bunch WikiLeaks cables, reports that Hamid Karzai our? America's? guy? His own guy? in Afghanistan? Our ally? He is so corrupt.
