Until I get this catalog done, things are probably going to be sparse and erratic of quality. Sorry about that.
Paul Krugman and the panic of the plutocrats over OWS. "This special treatment can’t bear close scrutiny — and therefore… there must be no close scrutiny. Anyone who points out the obvious… must be demonized and driven from the stage." Yes. That. (Pointed to by John)
Also, here I will note the return of comparing Obama and Progressives to Nazis, Socialists, Fascists, Khmer Rouge (don't worry, that one is coming after the History Channel produces a special on them or someone Netflixs "The Killing Fields") and anybody else we all can agree have been history's villains. Remember at the beginning of the TP movement where the "You're Mama is Hitler" shouting went on? Remember how the conservatives said, "We didn't start it." Well, yeah, you did. And you're doing it again. Cut it out.

Back at the beginning of the Tea Party movement there were some counter protests. The conservative blogosphere had a field day showing "liberals" being at their wackiest (including those aforementioned "Nazi" signs, which nobody else seemed to see). I postulated that it could be some people making the story (ie. inserting operatives to give a good picture). I was told that would never happen. Wouldn't it? Because it wouldn't fit into anybody's agenda, would it? (Grokked from Jay Lake)
Tweet of my heart:
@GeorgeTakei: It's Nat'l Coming Out Day! To all closeted ministers, actors and politicians, it does get better, but only if you embrace your Takei side.
