Ring Out The Old

From Album 5
Actually 2014 should be an improvement if only because Bachmann will also be leaving the gubmit...and, in the meantime, here's Matt Taibbi noting the irony if not the blowback of the Rove "machine" essentially producing the monster that threatens to crash and burn the whole enterprise.

It'll be interesting.

Happy New Year if I don't post anything tomorrow.

The Ladies' Man

From Album 5
Well, if your definition of woman is "a 15 year old child"...

Friday Cat Blogging With Photoshop

From Album 5
A pensive pose. I'm not thrilled to close cat blogging this year on a down note, but here's why Tigger and myself aren't real happy.

Anyway, have a good weekend.

Obnoxious Bully Blocks Traffic...

Happy Boxing Day.

Fightin' Jesus Didn't Get Nailed

From Album 5

It really is just a tribal marker.

Note: might take a day or two off, but as always, thanks to everyone who stops by. Happy holidays!

Fuck [a] Duck Dynasty.

Another Wingnut Says "Let Poor Children Labor For Their Gruel"

From Album 5
First, it's not even original -- N. Leroy proposed it at least a year and a half ago (and he probably didn't think of it himself). Second, using children as props for some crackpot theory of morality/work ethics, particularly from a member of the Least Productive Congress Ever, is just plain sick. Finally...poor children need NO lessons in the harshness of life. Taunting from their less-poor classmates might well be the least stressful part of their day. Consider that, in addition to hunger (and not terribly appetizing "free" lunch, as anyone who remembers their childhood school cafeterias well knows)...poor children are often stuck in circumstances that, at best, are stiflingly boring. Few if any books or toys, no such thing as an actual vacation, houses where heat, electricity, or even water might be periodically cut...parents who are likely stressed out themselves and possibly prone to lashing out at their kids. Crappy, crime ridden neighborhoods. A future that...certainly doesn't entail working barely four months a year while making almost $175 thousand dollars. You know, I think poor kids know all too well that there's no such thing as a free lunch.

And Jack Kingston can go fuck himself.

From The Bureau Of False Equivalencies

From Album 5
Sorry, you can pretend all you want, but Dan Quayle was no Jack Kennedy...and Barack Obama is definitely no George W. Bush.

Friday Cat Blogging With Photoshop

From Album 5
Obama selfie non-scandal edition...but the nonsense...it never ceases.

Have a good weekend.

Friday Cat Blogging With Photoshop

From Album 5
Change in the weather edition. Meanwhile, wish me luck -- thought an electrical problem at ye olde humble abode was fixed last night by the power company, but am not so sure now. Everything's working, including heat, thank the stars, but I've got enough questions/concerns to necessitate a visit from an electrician tomorrow. Here's hoping it doesn't cost an arm AND a leg.

Anyway, have a good weekend. Hope I have one as well.

Mourn His Passing, But Also Celebrate His Greatness

From Album 5
No need for any links -- I'm sure you can find better tributes than mine -- but yes, Nelson Mandela was someone I admired very much.

Back tomorrow.

World Targets In Megadeaths

From Album 5
Because nothing says freedom and respect for humanity like tactical nukes...

Does Iran fluoridate the water? I'm guessing Duncan Hunter neither knows nor cares, though he sounds like a Bircher to me.

At This Price...

From Album 5
We'd better be talking 24 Carat gold thread...and the very best painkillers available.

Friday Cat Blogging,,,Without Photoshop

From Album 5
Thought I'd "celebrate" Black Friday by not doing much of anything...just like my cat in the picture. I don't think he was trying to beat the heat as much as he was just measuring it for size. Cats can be like that.

Anyway, have a good weekend and I'll be back to "normal" posts on Monday.

Virtual Bounty

From Album 5
OK, I'll probably not post tomorrow, and thought I'd just say thanks to you folks who stop by. Should be back for Friday, since I don't do the Black Friday thing...anyway, Happy Thanksgiving, and here's to a restful Winter Solstice season.

We Might Not Know Who "Won" The Internet Today

From Album 5
But we sure as hell know who lost it.

Um, I Don't Think This Is Wayne LaPierre's "Good Guy With A Gun"

From Album4
And to repeat myself, generally I'm not at all bothered by people owning guns...but someone clearly looking for trouble stockpiling weapons? That's not good...

Nuclear Option? Bullshit

From Album 5
But the reaction of the Rethigs speaks volumes --major tantrum, hissy fit, ominous threats. Just what you'd expect from assholes.

I'm with Ed Kilgore on this.

Ted Gets Testy

From Album4
Guess he thinks the questions should be about measuring the windows at the White House for drapes or something like that...

Tis The Season

From Album 5
I suppose Wally World thinks any time of year is fine for exploiting their employees, but the holiday season must make it extra special.

Maybe they should make it official and change their slogan from Save Money, Live Better to....Are There No Prisons?

But Which Side Do You Want To Be On?

From Album 5
Yes, the Obamacare rollout has had problems...for the small percentage of people who have to use the national exchange...but if this will smooth things a bit, so be it.

Besides, anything the rat-bastard insurance companies are against -- and rat-bastard might be too generous -- can't be all bad.

On Health Insurance And Cars...

From Album 5
Looking over the proposed "fix" from my slightly-less-disappointing Senator, well...OK, I suppose...but it's still sort of like insisting that if you don't actually want your car to run, why not buy a Yugo? It'll sit in the driveway or garage as well as anything (and the old joke is that there's a rear window heater/de-icer because it helps keep your hands warm while you push it).

No, Representative Blackburn, the policies you're defending aren't Fords. They're Yugos.

If We're Going There, Just Saying...

Sure, Obama made a mistake...but if you want to talk lies...and worse.

From Album 5
If Cuccinelli wants to act like a tantrum throwing baby, I'll portray him as one.

Chris Creosote Gets Another Bite

From Album4
He was likely going to win anyway, but the national Democratic party bailing on the race was...sad, if not shameful.

Friday Cat Blogging With Photoshop

From Album 5
New Yorker cover edition.

Just FYI, while I'm sure trying to register online was and is a hassle, I've checked healthcare.gov both from home and work and can easily pull up a range of plans available in my area, along with a number to call if I wanted to register. The howling and screeching is...well, just more wingnuttery.

Have a good weekend.

The Day The Clown Lied

From Album 5
Not exactly news, since Dick Cheney lies every day of the week, but it is a tired, old lie...and I forget who said it, but yeah, the fact that he's still kicking but Lou Reed's dead is further proof that if there's a god, she's strictly hands off when it comes to human affairs.

Lindsey Gets A Case Of The Vapors

From Album 5
He does declare that Benghazi has him all riled up and he's not going to take it anymore...

Friday Cat Blogging WIth Photoshop

From Album 5
French Quarter edition -- yes, a recycled picture, but, in my defense, I was down in New Orleans today, enjoying some of the nicest weather of the season.

A great day to be in a great city.

Oh, and second what Charles Pierce says, which, in short form, is Fuck You Rich Lowery.

Have a good weekend.

I wonder if this explains old Tailgunner Ted...presumably his old man's been feeding him this line for a long, long time.
