I'll be seeing you in about a week and a half, of that I have no doubt.

Who the hell told this broad the grand plan? I'm getting mighty tired of you people not sticking with the secret codes and handshakes. Why the hell should I bother coming up with great stuff like "The weasel whimpers at daybreak" followed by "The ermine coat is warm" if you dicks just go and tell Huckabee's main adviser all about the Soviet Secret Agent plan?

I've been working on this for decades, ever since my Grandfather (Vladamir Notarealdocski) pretended to deliver a baby Barack in Hawaii instead of Kenya.

Bastards, the lot of you!!!

I had no idea the unrec button was so awesomely powerful.

When you say silence, does something physically happen to the poster after I push the unrec button?

I mean if I'm just unrecing something because the guy said something painfully stupid I'd feel bad if my click of the unrec caused his keyboard to electrocute him or something.

How about the rec button if I click on that do I somehow instill in the poster superpowers for a time, kind of like a Mario "Power-UP"?

I was at the airport last week flying back home and as I was passing through the normal metal-detector line I had a thought over why the TSA is being so public in their support for the over the top "pat down" being forced on people who decide not to go through the full body porno scanner.

The number of people actually being told to choose between the scanner and the pat-down were pretty small (at least at O'Hare when I was there last week). As I put my belt and laptop into the bin I saw maybe two or three people go into the full body scanners and none being patted down.

I think the TSA wants you to decide that if you're given the choice of a nudie scan or a full on groping by some big dude with latex gloves you're going to choose the nudie scan. The TSA paid a lot of money to some really well connected Government contractors for these things and by God they're going to make sure they get used.

I still think this entire thing is a simple ploy to make you think everything is all secure and happy at the airport. It's a waste of time when the guy that mops the floors in the john can bypass it by going in the back door.

Does anyone really think that these $10/hour outside contractors are actually being fully background checked? If something happens it's going to be just like Lou Dobbs and his illegal immigrant groundskeepers. Or any other company that hires contract companies to do the dirty work. "I hired an outside contractor and _assumed_ they carried out the proper screening." It's totally bullshit but it's the excuse that works.

I really hope the TSA has a bunch of people going through the secure areas all the time looking for breaches and potential breaches. Along with camera surveillance it's a lot more effective than making sure you don't have more than 3.5 oz of mouthwash in your bag. The TSA spends a lot of time yammering about how much we need to give up any and all civil liberties for safety I can only hope they are actually doing the real work without being so publicly idiotic about it.

I knew this self important shithead son of a shithead would eventually start to look bad to sane people anywhere but to see him beginning to fail already in a bastion of RW idiocy like Kentucky is refreshing.

So short a time since his moronic teabagging coming out party and he's already fallen into a tie with Jack Conway.

Go Rand, race your insane old man to the bottom and lets see which one of you assholes makes the biggest splat.

boycott AZ. If it will keep those illiterate teabaggin' pricks out of CT I say the abandonment of AZ to the wolves is a price worth paying.

I'll donate $100 to the next Dennis Kucinich for President bid. This guy IMO doesn't stand a chance of getting elected in that State.

on edit: I added this reply to my journal as a reminder to myself in case hell freezes over.

IMO one of the best anti shrub bands going. Green Day and Ministry tend to be two of my favorite anti-puke bands.

American Idiot was fantastic and now they have 21st Century Breakdown out and it may even be better, I'll have to give it a few more listens.

In any case. Amazon.com is offering it for download for $4.99 today. It's missing one of the iTunes songs and the booklet but at $14.99 at iTunes I'll pass on the booklet. You can get the real CD from Amazon for $10.00.

Even here in CT I've seen quite a few "I'm John Galt" / "Who is John Galt" bullshit on bumper stickers. Usually these are over old McPalin for prez stickers.

I read that ponderous tome (Atlas Shrugged) back in the old days when I was an undergraduate. I think it must have been the dope and my little antisocial streak but then I loved it. I reread it about 8 or 10 years ago and realized that it was nothing more than a bloated POS with the worst turgid prose this side of Dianetics.

What's driving this new interest? Is it the failure of gramps/bible spice to win and the righties trying to seize on something/anything to stay relevant so they naturally latch onto a 50 year old piece of junk fiction to it or is there some kind of active movement among the nuts to bring it back?

term thrown under the bus, should get thrown under the fucking bus.

Fuck but that's an annoying phrase turned into a useless cliche and as overused as "The bottom line is" "At the end of the day" etc.

It pisses me off almost as much as the pricks adding the word gate to the ass end of ever scandal to come around the corner. That should be a hanging offense.

Ahhhh, that feels better.

Being as I despise all things fundie I don't waste a lot of time figuring out what makes these assholes tick but...

I was under the impression that fundies, especially these hard core Pentecostal freaks think that the womb, oops my bad, woman in the relationship must submit to the domination of her superior in every way husband. Even if that husband is a creepy looking loser with yet another example of pathetic RW facial goatee growth (WTF is with the fucking goatees among these tools?).

Let's say that VP Sarah just gets back from a briefing with her staff where they had to show her pictures of Osama bin Laden and Putin so she could recognize the bad guy du jour and know that they aren't one in the same. Todd's been in the Canadian Whiskey, like all good Alaskan men(Crown Royal, in Washington they can afford the good shit) and he's pissed cause he's too drunk to perform and Sarah came home late again.

He demands to know what was discussed with the honchos at National Security, does she tell him or does she spend the rest of eternity boiling in hell for failing her blessed marriage vows?

There is a serious question in there. It looks like ol' Todd has enjoyed interjecting his pretty much useless ass into the matters of his lovely wife's Government from time to time. Would he expect that to continue as the second husband? That title would have to hurt a fucking he-man from Wasilla wouldn't it?
