B5′s Digital Assassins Guild

Uncle Jimbo Needs You! Or us as the case may be. Over at Blackfive he’s putting together a Digital Assassins Guild, a collection of vicious fiskers etc. In his own words; I have seen fit to authorize the raising of a Digital Assassins Guild for the purposes of furthering the art of the online beatdown,

Depends on What You Mean by Failure

Depressing read of the day, in which LC & IB Mike starts counting the ways in which Øbamandias has “failed”. He’s gotten the first big step towards government health care implemented, and the Republicans are either unwilling or incapable of doing anything at all about it. He’s institutionalized previously unimaginable levels of federal spending, and

Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans, and Thank You.

Rumor has it that the U.S. Senate has declared March 30, 2011, as Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day, to honor the 40th anniversary of the official withdrawal of U.S. combat forces from the Republic of Vietnam. While to many this honorific comes 40 years too late, and from a source less than desirable, I say

Happy Birthday To You, Happy Birthday To You…

Happy Birthday Fr. Jim! Oh, and me too I guess. Beers are on Mope.

Did Anybody Catch Øbamandias’ Brilliant Oratory This Evening?

Because we most assuredly didn’t. We’d much rather be listening to endless loops of Cato the Elder’s droning about the price of cabbage with the odd bit about Carthage thrown in at the end. At least Cato had a point and it was rarely about himself, droll as that point might be. But we did

Mass Oriental Coitus Event

For those of you who “no habla”, that’s PC speak for a Chinese Cluster Fuck. Thanks to LC Rurik we learn that the Libyan Kinetic Operation now has an official patch.

Who’d Have Thunk???

In a completely unpredictable development, it appears that the Mooselimb Sisterhood is becoming quite the power player in post-Mubarak Egypt now that the freedom-loving rabble has done the hard work for them. It’s almost as if they stepped into a power vacuum after a popular protest because they (and the military, that they’re now working

Fuck You, and Fuck the Rest of the Fascist Fed Too!

LC & IB Mike reports on an idea that seems to pop up with depressing regularity here in the no longer free America: The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) this week released a report that said taxing people based on how many miles they drive is a possible option for raising new revenues and that these

A Worthwhile Program

Just happened to catch this on my XM radio today (tuned into Channel 166 always). Wireless Amber Alerts It’s a free service and overcomes a lot of the difficulty with the Amber Alert system in general, that of timely, wide and focused distribution of actual alerts. Here in Texas on some interstate highways, we have

A Little Comparison For Ya…

just in case you forgot.

I’m a Rottie, Doctor…..

    A touching moment today…several actually…..     Sitting with The Other Half in Dr. Zie’s exam room, waiting, booting up the Blue Shield site, expecting to see not activated under her policy, which is what I did see for a brief second, the screen suddenly blank, the drive kicking in…….. then to reappear……activated, expiration date

Fucking Retards

The KosTards are apparently up in arms because the GOP are proposing that workers on strike shouldn’t be able to receive food stamps, calling it “starving the Childurn™” or something. Let’s get something clear here: It has always, and will always be the policy of His Imperial Majesty to help those who cannot help themselves.

A Great Senior Moment

Swiped from a Facebook post….once in a while, you find a gem there! Here’s a quote from a government employee who witnessed a recent interaction between an elderly woman and an antiwar protester in a D. C. airport. There were protesters on the train platform handing out pamphlets on the evils of America. I politely

Adding Insult to Injury

Just killing the goblin wasn’t enough for the Florida Beauty Pageant Queen, no she had to make the humiliation complete and use a pink gun.  I think I’m in love. (H/T LC Sir Christopher for the linkie love.) When a burly ex-convict forced his way into a posh Florida home last week, he had no

Every Thing Old is New Again

And we’re once more reminded that the Brave New World that Noo Socializm is creating for us is no different from Old Socialism™. Melanie Phillips is now being “investigated” for having the nerve to suggest that the followers of the pedophile prophet are barbaric for not only perpetrating the brutal murder of the Fogel family
