islamic rage, yaawwwnnnn

personally, i'm more outraged by the beheadings, bombings, and misogyny of islam more than a film that depicts the threat.


the truth will come out

Unlike some other sites, this blog is just too important to shut down in protest  :D  , but here's a quote about (yet another) really bad piece of proposed legislation:
(SOPA) is like shutting down a freeway because a car got stolen.

not MLK's day

which is worse: that martin luther king jr's "dream" has devolved into a "society" of gangsta-rappin-pimps-n-hos, or that somebody designed a poster showing how bad things have gotten?

And it will no longer manufacture Imperial Pure Cane Sugar Dr Pepper at its bottling plant.

dave barry's year in review

"This was a year in which the cast members of “Jersey Shore” went to Italy and then — in an inexcusable lapse of border security — were allowed to return."

Friday, January 06, 2012

short answer: yes

long answer: here

with no particular place to go

a meme via dustbury:
Go into your archives and post the first sentence from the first post you made each month last year.
I'm going to cheat a wee bit because some of mine are just links to someone else's quote:

jan: "Simply stated, if we are to believe the Islamic scripture’s portrayal of this “prophet,” Muhammad was the most repulsive, and thus the least qualified, divine messenger in human history."

feb: You mean there's someone else out there who has to deal with unfair complaints from co-workers?

mar: why are we supposed to care more about lindsay lohan's and charlies sheen's... misadventures... than about the problems of some guy that lives downtown in an abandoned entryway behind a bus stop?

apr: i have now personally seen chiropractors who believe in their profession at five levels.

may: sony's database was hacked, again.

jun: "Saying that man didn’t land on the moon, that Bush caused 9/11, or that Obama knows what he’s doing aren’t simply other opinions — they’re false and destructive ideas, and the people who cling to them border on mental illness."

jul: john lennon, republican?!?

aug: Q: What's green and looks like an iguana?

sep: now that the freedom tower is nearing completion, maybe we can begin some foundation restoration

oct: "If in 2004 5.7% unemployment was supposed to mark a “jobless recovery,” what exactly is 9.1% called?"

nov: Ann Coulter via Instapundit didn't go far enough...

dec: i never would have known to avoid the burzynski clinic if it weren't for their threats...

the slow down

entropy? inertia? some other fancy word for laziness?

i haven't forgotten this blog, i just don't have much to say at the moment (without excessive whining). just watch this strangely-relevant rerun in the meantime.

old years resolutions

no i'm not making any this year - not even silly ones like i've posted before. so here's a pic of (allegedly) woody guthrie's resolutions for some year long past.
