What I wish I had said…

Posted in Politics

What the cynics fail to understand is that the ground has shifted beneath them – that the stale political arguments that have consumed us for so long no longer apply. The question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small, but whether it works – whether it helps families […]

Nostalgia Tuesday: YES WE CAN

I’ve usually avoided talking plainly and openly about mainstream politics on this blog. It’s not that I’m not politically-minded. It’s just that I prefer to keep this place lighthearted and upbeat. And well, when you start talking politics…. But despite that, I’m going to go that direction now. I may ramble, so please forgive me. […]

Bailout passes. Cats and dogs! Living together! Mass hysteria!

Posted in Politics

This bailout deal stinks, and Congress should be ashamed of themselves. Both sides. Every stinking one of them. Do you realize that both Michael Moore and Rush Limbaugh actually AGREE WITH EACH OTHER that this thing is a swindle? Sure their reasoning is different, and they blame different people, but they both think this thing […]

I’m sorry, but we need better than this

CBS will make you sit through a commercial, but you need to watch this video. Doesn’t it remind you of the second video here?Watch CBS Videos Online Now, I don’t mean to pick on her, but this is the second time she’s had to answer this question. And after the last disaster, she’s had more […]

3 things I do that are killing the planet and don’t intend to stop doing

For the most part, I’m fairly environmentally conscious. I reuse […]

The Candidate You Can Trust … … to not bother shaving

I just flew in from Chicago and boy are my arms tired

I just got in from Chicago. I took some pictures while I was there. (See them here.) Worked. Hung out with Sophie and Chris. Met a person with Alton Brown’s phone number in their cell phone. All in all a great trip. I’m freaking exhausted. I rode the L a bunch while in Chicago and […]

Why we should demand voting machines with auditable paper trails

I’m not one of those guys who thinks that someone could get away with maliciously swinging an election by monkeying with electronic voting results. This isn’t because I believe it can’t happen. It’s because I believe that it would be really hard for someone to keep it a secret. Nope. I’m not worried about the […]

Lame holiday gift idea #576

This is the start of an ad that was in an email I got today from the North Texas Tollway Authority. I’m not sure what’s crappier, the mere concept of a TollTag as a stocking stuffer, or the suggestion that it’s okay to be a cheap bastard and just “get someone started on the road […]

Nostalgia Tuesday: Why you should go vote today

This picture was from my first “sleepover” birthday party. I believe this was in the second grade. As you can tell, we were some crazy mofos. So what does this have to do with election day? Not much, except you should keep in mind that these crazy mofos have been old enough to vote for […]
