Joan Rivers Dead – Afterlife Reports Being Mocked

I am personally devastated by the news that Joan Rivers just died.  I have loved her and her daughter Melissa for a VERY long time (for reasons I will probably get into some day) but right now I just want to think about how tough she had to be her whole life and how it…

You’re Looking for the Wrong Guy

I waited for a while to say anything about The Fappening because it is pretty complicated.  Not that theft is complicated.  It isn’t.  And this is purely a case of theft.  What is complicated is the back and forth I have seen because I can see elements of sense in a lot of the different…

Bacon, Beans and Limousines

In Ferguson the cops are all set to protect and serve the shit out of you. It’s pretty clear to me that when a corner of the United States starts looking like eastern Ukraine something is wrong.

There are two kinds of Tea Baggers, billionaires and suckers.

Check your wallet to see if you’re a billionaire or a sucker. When should we tell Tea Party Republicans that they lost the 2012 election? American’s still have their guns. There are no FEMA concentration camps. “Obamacare” hasn’t created death panels. Aside from gay couples gay marriage hasn’t ruined anyone’s life. The president even put…

Friday Nineties – Michael Bolton – How Can We Be Lovers

I’m generally not the type to be all “In My Day”…because it makes me think of Dana Carvey.  But seriously, the 1990’s were WAY BETTER at winning wars against Iraq.  You dopes have been fighting for years and years and our Iraq war was over in like, an hour.  And after we won, did we…
