That is Legal

This is my I-kid-you-not Tweet of the Day from Mitchell Byars, a reporter for the Boulder Daily Camera.  I confirmed with him that this is indeed a quote from the Boulder PD scanner.  “FTW” means “for the win” and I would say that’s right.

Only in Boulder folks.  Only in Boulder.

If Banks and Oil Companies Can Write Off Their Expense, Why Can’t Teachers?

This is what happens to the tax system when it’s permissible for corporate lobbyists to throw megabucks at people who are supposed to represent, ah, We the People. Hardscrabble teachers’ (and other) unions crawl on their hands and knees in an attempt to be heard but they aren’t.  They don’t have the

People: Conservatives Hate You

My Tweet of the Day.  (BTW, Josh Barro is a conservative so he should know.)

Tweet of the Da 4-17-14

That said, poor people (which includes a wide swath of us now), keep on voting for conservatives because God, gays, guns, equal pay for them bitches, teachers who are brainwashing your kids, ranchers who are stealing grazing fees from We the People tryin’ to live life as Benjamin Franklin said and oh yeah, the IRS, Benghazi, letter carriers and that black guy.

As Alan Grayson (D-FL) said, if you get sick, shut-up and die.  Fast.  Don’t bother us, don’t make noise and don’t make a mess.

Since When Don’t We Pay Overtime for Overtime Work?

I’m so old I remember when it was unthinkable not to pay overtime if someone ah, worked overtime, especially those workers who were paid hourly.  So how in the hell did we get to where we are today?  Oh wait.  I know.  Greed.

Rupert Murdoch Solves Mystery Behind Missing Malaysian Jet

Amazing how a guy who claims to be in the news business (as in reporting facts) jumps to so many conclusions here in two sentences:

Treating Kids as Adults

The corporatocracy keeps us in a state of fear (they can control us that way), but they keep us in a state of fear of things that are less likely to harm us than it.

About Those Abortion Clinic Buffer Zones

You probably heard that the Supreme Court heard oral arguments yesterday for and againa Massachusetts law that mandates a protective buffer zone around abortion clinics to allow patients unimpeded access, indicating they may strike it down as unconstitutional as demanded by anti-abortion protesters.”

To that, I say this — my Tweet of the Day:

Ain’t No Gay People Shovin’ Anything Down My Throat

I live in Colorado where gays and lesbians were given the right to “civil unions” (which do not include the full legal benefits of marriage that heterosexual couples enjoy) as of May 1, 2013.  So far, not one single “homosexual” has tried to “shove” their “agenda” down my throat.

Not only that, my brother’s gay and hey, I see and talk to him all the time and nada, zip from him either.  As a matter of fact, nothing’s changed at all.

So I have no idea what these bigots are talking about:

Gay Agenda via

And I suspect they don’t have any idea what they’re talking about either.

Years ago we had a neighbor who wore a really tacky T-shirt that said, “Powered by Beer.”  Guys like these remind me of that, but in this case their T-shirt would read something like:  “Powered by Fear,” or “Powered by Ignorance.”

At this point, thank goodness, they’re essentially talking into the wind.

Threaten To Assassinate the President, Get a Spot on Fox

My Tweet of the Day

Tweet of the Day 1-3-13Here’s the article linked to in the tweet:  Fox’s Benghazi Expert Endorsed Assassinating Obama Last Week.

I remember seeing Michael Scheuer interviewed over the years.  Lately, he really seems to have gone off his rocker.  But hey, if he thinks it’d be cool to assassinate the president, Fox is bound to love him.

Republicans Kick a Million+ Lazy Ass Americans Off Their Unemployment Insurance

Got that?  Earlier this month, Republicans refused to extend unemployment insurance to more than a million Americans because they’re lazy a++holes and if we coddle them they’ll just keep on keepin’ on sucking the tit of the American taxpayer.

Dear god of the universe:  If only we really did have a liberal media here in the U.S., they’d be screaming about this<—-  <—-:

—->  —–>

GOP not working-

And if we had Democrats here in the U.S. who made some serious noise, who had guts and a willingness to stand up to the corporatocarcy (thank you Justice Roberts and your ruling on Citizens United), We the People might stand a chance…

About That Deal With Iran

The bomb-bomb-bomb, bomb-bomb-Iraners are having a fit today.  If there’s one thing they hate more than making sure Americans have health insurance, it’s taking bombing Iran off the table, even if only temporarily.
