Sure, he's an egomaniacal, Kocksucker who stands zero chance of becoming President of the United States, but if we keep pointing out his shortcomings (too numerous to list here), he might drop out of the race.
This would be disastrous to not only snark-masters around here, but the Democratic Party as a whole.
Walker has pretty much already shot most of his foot off, but his early exit would prevent him from shooting not only his other foot, but the feet of other passengers in the Republican Clown Car.
Look, the others know they have to out-crazy Walker to get traction with the teabaggers, fascists, and the 72 year-old average aged viewers of Fox News... so let them have at each other. Invest in popcorn futures and sit back and watch the Sunday Serious Talking Shows.
Leave the man alone, and bless his little heart. You'll be glad you did, and Jon Stewart will appreciate it.
No one I know calls me William
When I get a letter or call for William
It's the government
A cruel trick by my parents
Calling me my middle name
But I like it
This early warning system
Is William there?
No, fuck off.
When will he be back?
He was never here, goodbye
Now, William is alright
For a name
I don't hate it
It was perfect for my uncle
But not for me
The bank form didn't even have a blank line
For a middle name
IRS and VA,
Didn't even have a blank line for an initial
So I knew when they came calling for William
And I knew they were both the same after awhile
The bank and the government
And I knew they didn't care
The syllables were just easier to say
Than my number.
I'm having a problem with reporters like Chuck Todd, John King, and others playing themselves on a fictional TV drama.
Basically, it comes down to this for me...
People are paying them money to say things.
Not much of a diary, I know. I just want to know if anyone else feels the same way I do.
1 pound of non-USDA inspected beef by-product
Saute meat product in back room near furnace for several days
Take a big shit before preparing
Skip handwashing because, freedom
Shape into patties by placing meat on chest and pounding
Peel patty from chest blowing off attached chest hairs
(do not use the groin area, that's for making donuts only)
Cook patty under heat lamp for 12 seconds
Scrape blue mold off expired bread product
Slather bun in leftover mayonnaise from company picnic
Slice tomato with your seasoned hunting knife
(Prepare smaller portion for un-inoculated children)
Serve with 32 oz. cola.
Are you shocked that there appears to be some grifting going on in Ohio's charter school funding? (That's a rhetorical question, of course)
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Several Ohio charter schools have far fewer students showing up to class than they report to the state, according to a state auditor's investigation released Thursday.The auditor said the report shows that the numbers the state relies on to fund the schools "are not terribly accurate."
State Rep. Teresa Fedor, a Toledo Democrat, said in a release that she will reintroduce a bill to establish a legislative committee to study the effectiveness of community schools and community school regulations. When she introduced the legislation last year, it stalled in the GOP-dominated House of Representatives.
For the most part, I would hazard to guess that the "haves" are healthier than the "have nots". Sue me if I'm wrong.
Recently, my daughter passed out while getting ready for school. She bonked her head on the bathroom sink and bruised her back and ribcage as well.
We carried her to the Zwoof Family Sports Truckster and headed for the emergency room with our yet unused Obamacare card in hand. We were charged $100 immediately, which is what my Silver Plan calls for.
Lots of tests and stuff as you can see (not quite clear on what "self administered drugs" are, but whatevs). I was worried about my share in the costs, particularly the battery of tests and lab work.
Yesterday, I got this bill from the hospital.
It turned out to be a bladder infection and dehydration, and she is fine now.
So, I'd like to thank the rich (those clearing $200,000 annually) for helping my family by redistributing their health.
Teen Bonnie and Clyde: Love-struck runaways wanted for crime spreeOther news sources...
By ABC News January 15, 2015 - 10:19 pm
Teen Bonnie and Clyde: Stolen Pickup Truck Uncovered Deserted in GeorgiaThese two are not Bonnie and Clyde and their crimes hardly rise to the level of a multistate crime spree.
Teen Bonnie and Clyde: Adore-Struck Runaways Desired for Crime Spree
This was Bonnie and Clyde...
Clyde Champion Barrow and his companion, Bonnie Parker, were shot to death by officers in an ambush near Sailes, Bienville Parish, Louisiana on May 23, 1934, after one of the most colorful and spectacular manhunts the nation had seen up to that time.
Barrow was suspected of numerous killings and was wanted for murder, robbery, and state charges of kidnapping.
Why is this important?
For one thing, it has been reported that they are in Florida, and if one was to believe the headlines generated by lazy-assed editors, are armed to the teeth.
Hopefully, Florida cops are not influenced by poor journalism, but there could be some George Zimmerman wannabes that are just hankering for a Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway ending.
Yes, they stole some vehicles that had weapons, which I would guess was not known by these two. In fact, police have recovered one of the weapons, which would indicate that the pair have no interest in weapons.
And, they haven't robbed banks, kidnapped, or killed anyone. So, stop it with the Bonnie and Clyde shit, already
I vaguely recall this being taught in my U.S. History class in high school, but not until college, many years later, did I learn the shocking details of indentured servitude. Oddly, I learned more about the subject in a popular culture class than in a history class.
The growth of tobacco, rice, and indigo and the plantation economy created a tremendous need for labor in Southern English America. Without the aid of modern machinery, human sweat and blood was necessary for the planting, cultivation, and harvesting of these cash crops. While slaves existed in the English colonies throughout the 1600s, indentured servitude was the method of choice employed by many planters before the 1680s. U.S. History websiteI thought when signing up for pop culture, I would be studying the Beatles or American TV and film, but the main focus of the course was American hegemony. My text, "Media Messages" by Linda Holtzman and M.E. Sharpe is described as a text that "reveals how the popular media contribute to widespread myths and misunderstanding about cultural diversity."
"While focused on the impact of television, feature film, and popular music, the authors reach far beyond media to explore how our understanding, values, and beliefs about race, class, gender and sexual orientation are constructed."Little did I know that over half of English immigrants were indentured to pay for their passage to America. The contracts were from 5- 10 years. Many died before they were freed.
More things I didn't know below the fold
You know what? Fuck Huffington Post and AOL and their green-assed popup window that cannot be killed (to the best of my knowledge).
You will notice that there is no "No Thanks" option, and if the "X" in the top corner is selected, the fucking thing pops up again on the next story.
I tried blocking with Adblock plus, but while the popup goes away, the page content is darkened and unreadable. I've tried blocking all popups with Chrome as well, nothing works.
I even entered bogus email addresses such as "firstname.lastname@example.org" to no avail. Finally, I surrendered and entered one of my real email accounts, and guess what? The damned thing came back anyway.
This is reminiscent of trying to cancel AOL back in the day. They latch on to you with their tractor beam and won't let go, dammit.
So, for now, I'm ditching HuffPo, but where will I find the latest in sideboob?
I got an email that enrollment for 2015 was open, so I typed "Healt" and my browser knew just where to go and completed the url. It was probably because I visited the site about a gazillion times to enroll in 2014. Not to mention at least 15 phone calls before I enrolled for a $500 a month policy that only runs $45 for my wife and kids. It was worth the wait.
Anywho, Healthcare.gov looks pretty much the same, and it was a piece of damn fine cake to re-enroll. It even remembered my data. I was worried about that.
Click, click, type type and I'm good to go for the next year. No lag and no spinning hourglasses. Let's all hope it goes that smooth for everyone this time.
