Just because you went and got yourself a Daily Kos membership doesn't make you special.  So let's get the straight.

If you're a moderate, chances are you're still farther to the right than the far right would have been in the 90s.  I haven't budged.  But you "appear" to be in the center because of how far right the lunatics have gone.

Remember the Story of Solomon

If these stupid frickin' teabaggers can't see to reason with plain language ... maybe this will help.

Two by Two, Onto the Bus

by Detroit Mark

It rained in Southeast Michigan this morning.

A lot.

At one point we were getting 2 inches of rain every half hour.

Michelle Bachmann & Her Wife

by Detroit Mark

I thought it was just me.

Was I the only one who could hear the sound of Marcus Bachmann's voice and wonder what a closeted homosexual was doing being married to a woman, AND being the head of a Pray Away the Gay outfit?

Apparently not.  And the rumblings are starting to build.

I've been seeing shit like this a lot.  Basically, it's a growing consensus among the severely religious deluded that says that the National Anthem represents a violent nation so it shouldn't be sung.

And so filled with divine vision for setting the course for economic recovery.  Sometimes you just baffle me!

Just when we were about to start stupid new industries and develop useless new jobs you put the kabosh on it.

So thank GOODNESS they're all fleeing Michigan for greener pastures.

This young Pakistani man was seized by the hair for trying to steal food.  He was dragged by a local brute and thrown at the feet of some nearyby Pakistani police, whereupon justice was meted in the span of 3 minutes.

The video depicts the boy begging for mercy, being shot twice in the thighs and then bleeding to death as the camera rolls, and the police stand idly by and wait for his "just rewards."

I withold comment beyond what I've already said.

Have A Nice Weekend

by Detroit Mark

I think I need to take a break from this place for a few days until some of you can stop obessing over penises and the odd translation of the Yiddish name, Weiner.

Honest to god, it's worse than when I was in 3rd grade and they showed that gential hygiene 8mm film.

Grow up people.



Last night's Colbert Nation was the site of an historical re-enactment of the ride of Paul Revere.  Host, Stephen Colbert even put himself in harm's way by saddling up to a real, live department store rocking horse to demonstrate how firing warning shots, and ringing bells whilst screaming "The British are coming, the British are coming" and warning the British themselves they're not taking our guns ... is not only plausible!  But it even shows how Paul Revere put his life in danger with this epic feat.

The Japan based Tokyo Electric Company's (TEPCO) 3 nuclear reactors which were the subject of the greatest kind of drama anyone could imagine experienced a complete meltdown, probably within hours of the tsunami that threw the power plant into chaos.  In what was being touted as a slow motion near-disaster, the resolution for which could come at any time averting complete mayhem was in fact the worst case scenario right from the very beginning.

Does the car you're driving use Delphi parts?  At one time they were a major GM supplier.  In order to stay afloat, GM threw Delphi overboard.  Likewise, in order to save their CEO's bonuses, Delphi cleansed its factories of any trace of Union representation.

This idea has merit to me:

"It’s true. I’m boycotting all heterosexual weddings.

How utterly absurd to celebrate an institution that I am banned from in most of the country. It puzzles me, truth be told, that wedding invitations deluge me. Does a vegan frequent summer pig roasts? Do devout evangelicals crash couple-swapping parties? Do undocumented immigrants march in Minuteman rallies?

Heterosexual ladies and gentlemen, please. Don’t mail me that wedding invitation. It’s going straight to the bin. "

And just in time for the "June Is Bustin' Out All Over" season of tux rentals, and crystal vase purchases.
