If you use “Google” as your search engine of choice, you’ll notice that today’s “cute” banner is a celebration of Thomas Edison (Or, more precisely, he and his assistants.) inventing the incandescent light bulb. The discovery led to the Age of Electricity™, which led to all of the cool stuff we enjoy these days, including these very same InterWebTubeNets™ that you’re reading this over. We’d wager a year’s worth of LC Mope’s beer that the Neo-Socialists at “Google” haven’t an inkling how ironic it is that they should put up a banner celebrating such an invention, when their Neo-Marxist friends in the O’Bungles Misadministration have finally managed to shut down the last domestic incandescent light bulb factory in the US and outlawed their future sale, purchase and, ultimately, use in the US.

In case you don’t want to give those Useful Useless Idiots™ hits on their counter by going to their home page, we’ll give you the picture here. (We’re hoping the GIF works. If not, deal with it.)

Oh, and we’d be willing to wager the combo to His Imperial Vindictiveness’ liquor cabinet that all of those steam-punk machines that are providing the sparky stuff for the light bulb aren’t running on unicorn farts and pixie dust, either.

I guess the thing that drives me the craziest is that the Useless Media just parrots whatever nonsense comes out of the mouths of this mal-Administration. They refuse to do ANY investigation on anything. Five minutes on the computer would give them volumes of info on this terrorist organization (MB), but they just continue to whistle past the graveyard. Actually,… Read more »

This is the year to start hoarding incandescents. Every time you go the the store for anything, pick up a
couple packs of bulbs. Pack ’em away. Enough for *years*. Fuck Cumgress.

Oprah whined… She said the presidency is a position that “holds a sense of authority and governance over us all,” and that “even if you’re not in support of his policies, there needs to be a certain level of respect.” We have a saying in the military (take note, Oprah), “You wear the rank, you EARN the respect.” It is… Read more »

Edison & Company may have done the bulb, but it was the genius of Tesla(stolen by Westinghouse) that made it possible to use them and every other electrical doo-dad we have today.

Hey Fat Oprah! I’ve got news for you. Since the People of the USA supposedly elected the Kenyan Klown, he should show respect for us, which he never has. But in fact, since he stole the election via ACORN election mechanics, and selective bits of thuggery and intimidation like the NBP poll video, I guess he isn’t really our president… Read more »

Hopefully coal. But perhaps unicorn farts has sufficient BTUs to power a steam engine.

But the elders say that unicorns have been extinct for thousands of years.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, Delta Juliet! “McBarrack ” refers to “[Sadat’s] pal Hosni”–an air force guy. I would not use a military reference to distort Die Grosse Nulle‘s name! In case you hadn’t noticed, Hosni McBarrack was trying to stay on as “President For Life” of Egypt–& might easily have succeeded. BTW I don’t think I’ve given Obi-Wrong Baracki (Mr. Rope… Read more »
