Binders Full of Women

The only idiot who makes that comment is one that actually has binders full of women. Misogynist pig. Any woman who votes for these idiots should be unequivocally ashamed.

Ellen on Bic

My day has come. Finally I'll learn how to do math with a pen.

95% = 50%? Stupid Republicans

I'm not exactly a math major, but when I hear the Republican argument for increased taxation on the very wealthy I have to scratch my head raw.

To them, increasing tax to those who make 1 million or more is an exercise in class wars. Republicans don't want to divide the country with the impending unjust tax. Yes, we get it, Republicans only represent the rich. But last I checked it's under 5% that make more than 1 million. THATS IT.

5% is not 50% unless you suck at adding.

So increasing the tax bracket for millionaires only hurts 5% of the people who already have excess.

There's no arguing about it. If you do'nt like it then move to China.

On this day: don't ask don't tell repealed

It was a few months ago that the victory was won, when the White House declared the DADT repealed. ( It was today that that decision took full effect. It's been a while but the blight on our country has been removed for our brothers and sisters serving this country in land, sea, and air. Civil rights aren't dead in this country and we need to be reminded of the power of our networks to impact our country. Be a participant in your community to fight for equality. Right now that probably looks more like economic equality. Arm yourself with information, get informed, and let's keep moving forward.

Dancing Chazz

Chazz is thrilled, most of America is thrilled (well maybe not the conservative right, they're pretty pissed at DWS), I'm thrilled. Now, with everything, let's try to reign in the eagerness. If anything the conversation from the vast media attention on a transgendered people, that's a plus. Where we go from here.... well tiny steps are good. If we're going to treat him as a him, as we should, then let's not ask questions about 'how does it fell' but, let's face it, how does the dancing help to lose a little weight....

Green fuel subsidies politically unstable

Is it worth the money to continue subsidizing the green fuel industry (of which bio fuel is included)? Some Foreign Affairs (1) bureaucrats don't think so. On one hand I can understand in an economic climate of cost cutting the subsidies devoted to any industry would be questioned, especially ones that don't have results that the average consumer can comprehend easily. But to write off the entire green fuel movement as inadequate and likely to collapse? Probably not the case and reflects a level of American love for fossil fuels. Is the current system inefficient? Perhraps, jobs aren't being created at the pace some would like to see (and more jobs would certainly help justify the various subsidies). BUt to remove a level of investment would in fact harm our capability to become leaders in the alternative energy race. That's a big deal because whether we like it or not, the world (less India and China) are actively pursuing green fuel alternatives. We really don't want to be left behind here. 1

Birds from Sky because of gays

In Arkansas crazy religious fanatics are connecting the dots between the victory in 'Dont' Ask Don't Tell' and the thousands of blackbirds that fell dead from the sky.

I think I'll let this one play out because it quite simply looks REALLY REALLY bad (As in hilarious).
