Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

Linkee-poo if we shadows have offended

Yea, about those subsidies… Note, and now you know why conservatives are now thinking, "Hey, maybe this wasn't such a good thing to win, and we better fix this damn thing." Don't worry, they'll try and tie a tax cut to it and shoot themselves in the foot.

The Lexus Hoverboard. Note you don't see the guy actually step on the board and ride it (which given it's "frictionless" ride would be very difficult being that it could slide in any direction, Newton's Third Law isn't your friend here). (Grokked from John)

And Mikey Hucklebees is done. Hey, no worries, I bet Fox News has a talking-head position open just waiting for him. (Grokked from Dan)

When does workplace "wellness" programs become coercive? About 6 years ago, that's when. "'Medical questions that an employee may only decline to answer if he or she agrees to pay thousands of dollars more for health insurance can hardly be called voluntary.'"

Oo, history is so hard. If only we knew the true intent of the Southern Rebellion as outlined in their own words by their own leaders and manifestos. I mean, that would clear things up now, wouldn't it. IF you believe "The Cause" was anything other than keeping a state's right to continue having one person hold other people as property (slavery), then BZZZ! Wrong! Thank you for playing! Sorry, we don't have any consolation prizes for ignorants. "Thus in 1861, when the Civil War began, the Union did not face a peaceful Southern society wanting to be left alone. It faced an an aggressive power, a Genosha, an entire society based on the bondage of a third of its residents, with dreams of expanding its fields of the bondage further South. It faced the dream of a vast American empire of slavery." (Grokked from John)

Recycling, it's no longer a booming business. Mostly because we can't sell it to China anymore. They don't like the quality of our garbage. (Grokked from Dan)

Sen. Cruz tries to stifle free speech by objecting to photos of him at a gun rally, where pictures of firearms on the wall appear to be pointing at his head. "'The images were not intended to portray Sen. Cruz in a negative light.'" Sen. Cruz doesn't need any help in that regard, AP. Dear Sen. Cruz, how about maybe you start thinking about the optics. Noted in contrast to Sarah Palin interviewed on video in front of a turkey farm as a worker in the background slit the throats of the turkeys. You just can't make this shit up, people wouldn't believe it.

It's the lack of professionalism I find disturbing. But it's early and most people who will vote don't give a damn, yet (note various polls with 20-30% saying they never heard of the candidates).

Oh why oh why didn't these peaceful people of God rise up and defend themselves? Dear SC State Rep. William Chumley, you're an asshole that's why. Oh, sorry. How about this explanation, 1) they shouldn't have to in a lawful and respectful nation and 2) not everyone is as violent and abusive as you are. Seriously, conservatives, get a friggin' grip, okay? Oh, half apologies don't cut it anymore.

Fox News likes to say there's no racism anymore. That's because they can't see how racist they are. You see, for Ann Coulter, anyone not as white, skinny, uptight, or fucked in the head as she is obviously isn't an American. Bill O'Reilly and Fox, tend to your own wounds.

Tweet of my heart: @saladinahmed Speeding removal of Confederate flags is kind of a genius move for southern GOP. They'll be milking this for "not racist" cred for years.
