If you’re not outraged February 21, 2007

…you’re paying too much attention to Britney Spears or Anna Nicole Smith. From rollingstone.com:

Here’s the thing about the system of news coverage we have today. If
the Walton family, or Lee Raymond, or the heirs to the Mars fortune
actually needed the news media to work better than it does now, believe
me, it would work better. But they have no such need, because the
system is working just fine for them as is. The people it’s failing are
the rest of us, and most of the rest of us, apparently, would rather
sniff Anna Nicole Smith’s corpse or watch Britney Spears hump a fire
hydrant than find out what our tax dollars are actually paying for.

Shit, when you think about it that way, why not steal from us? People that dumb don’t deserve to have money.

Dems = Washington Generals September 25, 2006

A Tiny Revolution has a great bit about what a Democrat commercial would look like in response to Bush’s comment that the current civilian deaths in Iraq would “look just like a comma” in the history books.

Peak Oil May 7, 2006

Filed under: george w bush,peak_oil,politix,wiggity — tim @ 2:09 am

This is an interesting poster about the possibilities of peak oil. If you're not familiar with the concept, here it is in a nutshell: The world is running out of oil, and our discovery/production phase may have already peaked. Then again, it may not have. It's a lot like the Seventh-Day Adventists/Millerites trying to predict the end of the world, and we all know how accurate they turned out to be!

This is Bush’s new health care plan —————————> April 27, 2006

amenWhere do I begin with this?

Well, why don’t I start with something completely different. Here’s a list of nights you will never see on American Idol:

– ska night

– Violent Femmes night

– polka night (ok so that was a gimme)

– Kelly Pickler night

I’m glad that states are beginning to realize that we need to begin impeachment proceedings against you-know-who (hint: he’s the one healing the leper in the picture). I could list all of the reasons why his breaking the law is worse than what Clinton did (or had done to him, rather), and in my recent studying of Founding Fathers, it makes me madder than before that the Constitution is treated like it’s irrelevent because it disagrees with a GOP agenda.

The amount of buddy-buddy oil company-government goings-on is ridiculous;
I hope you all not only vote your conscience this fall, but vote for the future. Here’s what’s at stake:

– your civil liberties

– the environment

– your security (and by that I mean if we continue down this awesome path of pissing off the rest of the world, we’re in for it)

– your children

– AMERICA

If you don’t, you’re just getting us into a lot of

I have seen a lot of great vanity plates around lately. Yesterday in the span of 5 minutes I saw QTP2T and my all-time favorite, -PWN3D-
