"Sen. Bob Corker (R-Asshole) was scheduled
to meet with Sonia Sotomayor. Yet when Sotomayor was delayed because of her recent injury, Corker decided
that he had more important things to do than to wait around for a potential lifetime appointee who is temporarily
disabled: Corker blew off his meeting with Sonia Sotomayor. Hobbling along with her leg in a cast, she
was 10 minutes late and he said he didn't feel like waiting." -- Huffpo,
Excerpt: On January 25, 2002, Tortureboy Gonzales advised
Bush in a memo to deny al-Qaeda and Taliban prisoners
protections under the Geneva Conventions because
doing so would "substantially reduces the threat of domestic
criminal prosecution under the War Crimes Act"
and "provide a solid defense to any future prosecution."
Two weeks later, Bush signed an action memorandum
addressed to Cheney, which denied baseline protections to
al-Qaeda and Taliban prisoners under the Third
Geneva Convention. That memo opened the door to "considering
aggressive techniques," which were then developed
with the complicity of Rumsfeld, Rice, and other Bush bastards.
They knew all along that they were committing war crimes
so they built in a defense mechanism up-front in case they got caught.
And once again, why did Lyndie England go to jail?
Rumsfeld promised it was "just a few bad apples"
now they say
"torture is an important tool in getting information
that keeps us safe."
And England - far as I know - went to jail for humiliating prisoners.
I'd much rather be humiliated that have a scalpal cut my penis 23 times.
The point is they were lying the whole time and even after getting caught,
Pelosi became the defense attorney for Bush-Cheney and that makes me
Excerpt: Polls now tell us that Americans claim to have
voted for Obama by far larger margins than those indicated on Election
Officially, Obama won the popular vote by 53%,
with McCrazy taking 46%--a lead of seven points. But according to polls
at the Whore Street Journal, Obama seems to have
prevailed by eleven points: 50%-39%. And the New York Whores Times
reports that people claim to have voted for Obama
by some 28 points, 60%-32%.
Thus Obama's win was not a mere "decisive victory,"
as all the press (and he) agreed.
It was a landslide, like in 1932, with the Republicans
not just refuted but completely routed.
Excerpt: In 50 Iranian cities the number of votes cast

Excerpt: A controversial law in Massachusetts could go
national if Barney Frank gets his way.
Frank has filed a bill that would eliminate federal
penalties for personal possession of less than 100 grams of marijuana.
It would also make the penalty for using marijuana
in public just $100.
"I think John Stuart Mill had it right in the
1850s," said Congressman Frank, 'when he argued that individuals should
have the right to do what they want in private,
so long as they don't hurt anyone else. It's a matter of personal liberty.
Moreover, our courts are already stressed and
our prisons are over-crowded. We don't need to spend our scarce
resources prosecuting people who are doing no
harm to others.'
I like this, of course, but why 100 grams?
Critics are going to lie and pretend that 100 grams won't fit in an
They tried this in Nevada, and the liars said, "That's
enough to get an entire stadium high." When you buy liquor, you don't buy 20 cases of beer and you don't buy
a case of Jack Daniels.
If pot is legal, why not sell it in 14 and 28 gram bags?
Besides, if it gets legal the quality will be excellent.
You won't need several grams to get where you want to go.
The military budget doesn't need to be cut, it
just needs to be spend differently.

When someone downloads or streams the file, most
browsers will put the file into the cache first (because it's big).
However, sometimes there is a problem and the
whole file doesn't get transferred (internet connection problem,
some brief glitch on the server end, etc. but
beyond your control)
When the person tries to listen again, the browser
checks if the file already exists in the cache, and just uses that
same (broken) one again instead of getting it
again from the server. (I know, I know, it seems stupid but it actually
makes sense, because otherwise your internet
speed would be much slower)
To fix this:
Clear your cache and try again (most browsers
have made this easy to do)
Close the browser and try downloading the file
again, to a slightly different location on your PC.

"Where to begin? 'Supreme Leader'? Note
the abject solicitousness with which the American president confers this honorific on a clerical dictator
who, even as his minions attack demonstrators, offers to examine some returns in some electoral districts --
a farcical fix that will do nothing to alter the fraudulence of the election."

Excerpt: Chris Brown has pleaded guilty to one count of
felony assault on Rihanna.
Brown entered his plea before a preliminary hearing
was scheduled to start in Los Angeles on Monday.
Rihanna had been on standby to testify.
After Brown left the courtroom, Rihanna entered
and was addressed by LA Judge Patricia Schnegg,
who explained to the Barbados-born singer that
she had issued a stay-away order.
Rihanna had not been seeking a stay-away order,
but the judge imposed one. The order requires that
the two stay at least 50 yards from each, except
at industry events when the distance is reduced to 10 yards.
The judge also told Rihanna it's not a one-way
order and she will be in violation
if she gets closer to Brown than the order allows.
For the beating he gave her, he got off easy.
But, having a "I beat women" felony on your record is no small thing.
Excerpt: As the clock rounded past 8 p.m. Sunday, NBCís
Dan Hicks said that NBC would be staying with its coverage
as long as Tiger Woods was out on the course.
Hicks didnít mention theyíd be staying with coverage as long as
any player was out on the course, including
the 11 players who were ahead of Tiger at that time. No, per Hicks, when Tiger Woods calls it quits
for the night, NBC signs off.
When Tiger shot 74 in his stop-start-stop first
round, the talk his entire second round was whether or not heíd
make the cut, and whether or not the weather
was to blame. At the time he was as many as 11 strokes behind,
there was more focus on Tiger making or missing
the cut than on who was leading the golf tournament.
How long before thatís all we know of golf?
How long before the game of golf is one giant
highlight from Tigerís video games?
Since golf isn't even a sport, I don't care -
but the Tiger worship gets old real fast for me.
People would rather watch Tiger lace his shoes
than watch someone else sink a 30-foot putt.
Maybe the simple truth is golf is so boring nobody will watch
it unless Mr. Perfect is there.
There's also a mention in that story about Tiger sponsoring his own
there's talk of Tiger competing with the PGA. Is he power-hungry
like an oil man?
People need to learn that there are consequences

Excerpt: S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford's staff said late Monday
that the governor is hiking on the Appalachian Trail,
ending four days during which staff and state
officials said they had not heard from him.
Neither Sanford's office nor the State Law Enforcement
Division, which provides security for governors,
had been able to reach Sanford since he left
the mansion Thursday in a black Suburban SUV assigned to
his security detail, said state Sen. Jake Knotts,
and three others who declined to be identified.
Joel Sawyer, the governor's spokesman would not
disclose where on the trail the governor was hiking,
nor would he reveal whether Sanford was hiking

about - proibably with a girlfriend or boyfriend.
When you go walking in the woods you REALLY want
people to know where you are.

that in the woods?
And why does a sitting governor have to disappear
for four days?

and turn your phone off?

Excerpt: As director Davis Guggenheim remarked in his
comments prior to Friday night's LA Film Festival screening of
his documentary It Might Get Loud,
"I just wanted to make a film about the electric guitar." As rock gods
Jack White and Jimmy Page (Jimmy Fucking Page!)
confirmed after the screening during an audience Q & A,
there really was no plan for the film other than
to sit around and talk about music. The result of all this -- as Page
might say -- is a tight but loose film about
three men (The Edge being the third), their guitars and their music.
As a longtime Led Zeppelin devotee, I smiled
throughout the old master's recollection of those days long past.
I think I'll see this movie.

Remember the outrage at banks a couple of months
ago rasing their credit card interest rate?
Well they or at least the Chase bank has found
a way around that. Raise the minimum payment from 2%
of the outstanding balance to 5%. A 150% increase
as of August 1st. That mean that my payment will go
from $235 a month to $587.50 a month and since
I get paid twice a month that comes to almost my whole check.
After calling them they wanted to transfer me
to someone who could help me lower my payments by lowering my APR.
The thing is my APR is a promotional APR of 5.99%
because a couple of years ago I consoldated my debt
so next month when I can't make that huge payment
my interest will jump to their regular charge of 23.24% a month
which means I'll owe an even larger minimum payment.
