Saturday Stuff

Yeah, I would say that Stephanie Miller’s powerful story undoes a whole lot of wingnut garbage about health care reform (here – and never lose sight of the fact that all of it would be abolished under Republican “governance”...I think it’s shocking that she’ll be on probation for a year with her new employer, but companies pull this stuff now because they can get away with it completely, with almost no push back whatsoever)...

...and I kind of always associated this song with summer, so here it is.

Friday Stuff

(I promise to stop hating on Blogger for a little while – even though I checked out the template HTML and realized that I can’t do a goddamn thing with it, I have to admit that it’s pretty badass to see the site on my smartphone all I have to do is create intelligent content :-).

However, turning about 180 degrees in the direction of stupidity, I give you the following instead (sooo, it looks like Thad McCotter, after witnessing his presidential primary candidacy going up in flames...and how sad is it to lose to Former Senator Man-On-Dog, Baby Newton Leroy and that misogynist pizza guy anyway...decided to make a borderline porn/white trash video in response?).

A fitting way to end the public life of the numbskull who brought us the following (I used to call him “Mad Thad” and I was only joking – guess I was serious after all, huh?)...

...and please be careful with the heat over the next few days, OK?

Thursday Stuff

Looks like our beloved commonwealth made the national news again, but not in a good way of course (more here - interesting that, as big of a story as this is, I couldn't find a video; don't wake our corporate media stenographers...rock-a-bye baby; maybe Russia Today will have something, or Al Jazeera, and no, I'm not kidding...)...

...and there are a few songs I could think of that come to mind in response, but I’ll take this one.

Happy July Fourth

Here is a musical selection for the occasion (sorry, no video)...

...and there's always an excuse for "prog" rock, including today (no video here either - sorry again).

Tuesday Stuff

(Here are more vids from my hideous new blog, courtesy of those numbskulls at Blogger :-(...

RIP Andy Griffith, an American icon who did us a political favor here, among his other accomplishments (if only the Dems had pitched the Affordable Care Act as “Medicare for all” – sigh)...

...and I would say that Number 44 is on the proverbial beam here, as opposed to Willard Mitt...

...and I don’t know what on earth came over Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder here, vetoing three bills to combat the thoroughly non-existent scourge of “voter fraud,” but I think he actually deserves some credit – however, this tells us why we shouldn’t be so quick to forgive...

...and here’s a catchy little summer tune.

Sunday Stuff

No, this site hasn’t been absorbed by MSNBC or The Ed Show or something – I accidentally clicked some button on Blogger’s whiz-bang new interface, and this is the new layout. I tried to revert to the old format, but I haven’t had any luck (got a bunch of error messages about malware or something from Blogorama, which I linked to from the old site). At least I could save my old template HTML, so it looks like, at some point, I’ll have to reconstruct this site. I’m definitely not in love with this new layout, I can tell you that, but I don’t have time to play with new templates and hack around with custom HTML at the moment. I’ll keep you informed of any new developments (OK, so much for the “meta” BS).

In the meantime, I give you the following (here) concerning that supposedly fine, upstanding Roman Catholic Repug U.S. House Rep Paul Ryan (which brings to mind this clip – God, how many ways is K.O. missed)…

 …and I think this almost sublime bit of absurdity from Sen. Mr. Elaine Chao calls for the following video in response (take a bow, all you Kentuckian knuckleheads who keep sending this thoroughly compromised shill back to D.C. over and over and over – sorry, no video).
