Evidence #324 that Stupid People Are Breeding

This week a 4-year-old kid fell into a gorilla enclosure at a zoo and zoo personnel killed the gorilla to save the boy’s life. Obviously everyone was freaked out that a zoo would have a gorilla exhibit that a 4-year-old could fall into. Not exactly. Social networks lit up with crazy ass motherfuckers, some of

How the credit card industry stole $80 from me

I run an online business that accepts payments via Paypal. It’s a subscription model, so people are billed every month. One of my customers got caught up in one of the giant hacks at Target or Home Deport, or whatever. In response to her card getting stolen, the bank challenged every single charge on her

My Government in Silver Spring, Maryland

I just moved to Silver Spring, Maryland. Silver Spring is way bigger in size and population than the town in Vermont I moved from, but Silver Spring doesn’t have a local government. All of the unincorporated and incorporated “towns” in Montgomery County are all governed at the county level. It seems to be working. The

Peet’s Coffee & Tea

If Alfred Peet’s goal in 1966 was to create a chain of coffee shops serving mediocre coffee, Peet has succeeded. I always thought Peet’s was just a little bit better than Starbucks, but it’s actually worse than Starbucks. I just moved to a new area, and so I don’t know where the good coffee shops

CIA Director Calls Torturers “Patriots”

I don’t know what the fuck country CIA Director John Brennan lives in, but in the country I live in, people who torture living creatures, particularly fellow human beings, are sick fucks who should be in prison. They are not “patriots.” Brennan, also known as Cunt or The Cunt to his friends, admits that it

GOP to Blacks, Latinos and Poor – Don’t Vote

As the white majority in America not-so-quietly fades into the sunset of history, it’s not surprising that the party of over-privileged white people doesn’t want brown people to vote. Since the GOP got trounced in 2008 by record turnout of non-whites, something had to be done. Fortunately, conservatives did well in the state legislatures in

Last of Mo. National Guard leaves Ferguson

Philip Seymour Hoffman Dead at 46

On February 2, 2014, actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, 46, was found dead in his Manhattan apartment, of an apparent drug overdose. Hoffman was in a longstanding relationship with costume designer Mimi O’Donnell. They met while working on the 1999 play “In Arabia We’d All Be Kings,” which Hoffman directed. They had a son born in

Christie’s Political Career Unraveling

A few weeks ago, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was a top contender in the GOP to be the next President of the United States of America. Now there’s a good chance, Christie won’t make it through his second term as governor. And even if Christie isn’t run out of office over the George Washington

Fox News wants to chat about Benghazi, not Christie

Fox News doesn’t want to cover the Chris Christie scandal and would much rather talk about President Obama’s “scandals.” Here’s a headline today on Fox News. “Christie crackdown ups scrutiny over Obama’s scandal response” Yes, let’s talk about Obama’s scandals. Once you’re on Fox News, you don’t have to go far because Benghazi is the

Political Terrorism

Here’s a fun fact. The 21st century Republican Party is a terrorist political organization. The problem for the GOP is that they can’t win elections. The solution is not to come up with more compelling policies. No, the Republican Party has decided that rather than worry about winning elections, they’ll just take a few hostages

Dealing with Crazy

For as long as there have been humans there have been crazy humans. That we can not change. But we also can’t ignore it. People, particularly adults, and more specifically male adults, are slipping through the cracks of our fragile mental health care system. And the result is that many, many innocent people are gunned

Hispanic gay voter welcomed by GOP, sort of

BUTTE, Mt. — Republicans help Alberto Garcia register to vote. On Saturday the Montana state Republican party held a fundraiser. They ate hot dogs, chugged sugar water and listened to meandering speeches about socialism and how the end is near. They also registered folks to vote and Alberto Garcia was one of those voters. “Normally

We’ve always been crazy, so who cares

Yep, we’re all crazy. Nothing is new. All of the problems we face today are the exact same problems of the past. There’s nothing we can do about it. Both political parties do it. Everyone’s a bad parent. No one else uses a turn signal. It makes us feel better when read about how other

Cuccinelli to Skip “Left Wing” Debate

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli wants to be governor of the Commonwealth. He’s running against Democrat Terry McAuliffe. McAuliffe, the former head of the Democratic National Committee, has agreed to the debate proposed by the AARP Virginia and League of Women Voters. When asked by a reporter why Cuccinelli declined the debate invitation. “Oh, the

The New York Times Sucks

The New York Times botched a story today, which is why the New York Times sucks — today. The headline of the story is “Dispute Over Budget Deepens a Rift Within the G.O.P..” It’s a rather dry story about the federal budget and internal squabbling among Republicans in Congress. However, in the story the New

Boston Attacked

At 2:50 p.m., two explosions rocked the Boston Marathon finish line killing at least two people and injuring more than 100. One of the fatalities is an 8-year-old boy. At a 6 p.m. press conference President Obama cautioned against jumping to conclusions. “But make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of this,” Obama

Louie Gohmert is correct

Restrict the number of bullets in a firearm magazine and people will eventually have sex with animals. That’s the argument Republican Texas US Congressman Louie Gohmert has made about efforts by liberals to limit the ammunition capacity of firearms. It makes sense, too. What happens is that if we allow the federal government the power
