Too bad anti-stalker laws exclude the government.

some networks just aren't safe

...when the nsa is on the prowl

some networks just never learn

CBS News correspondent Lara Logan, under fire for using a discredited source for a 60 Minutes story on the Benghazi attack, has agreed to take a leave of absence... The segment's producer, Max McClellan, also was placed on leave.

"There is a lot to learn from this mistake for the entire organization," Jeff Fager, chairman of CBS News and executive producer of 60 Minutes, said in an email to CBS employees Tuesday.
i find it rather interesting that they didn't learn from their previous mistake...

One tragedy of firearm violence calls for an overhaul of gun rights, but systematic IRS abuse is fixed by shuffling people around. #LibLogic

Twitter is where I get to see the thoughts of everyday, regular stupid people that I've excluded from my actual life.

You want better care for women? How about you subject Planned Parenthood to the same health standards as say, your local freaking nail salon.

unconstitutional big government

didn't start in 2008:
Part of the reason for the importance of Abraham Lincoln in the iconography of the left is explained by the Whig Theory of History which is shared by most leftists in one form or another. The Whig Theory of History holds that.. freedom broadening down from precedent to precedent as progress is made away from tradition, authority, monarchy, and aristocracy toward democracy and egalitarianism. The leftist adherents to the Whig Theory of History see Lincoln as part of a continuum running from Runnymede to Cromwell to the so-called Glorious Revolution to the American Revolution to Lincoln to Wilson to Roosevelt to Kennedy and beyond.

Of course, this Whig Theory of History is preposterous and fallacious and maintained only by a thoroughly dishonest editing of historical events... let us examine the real Abraham Lincoln and his true place in American history.

Alec Baldwin stalking case

When I first heard mention of the Alec Baldwin stalking case involving Genevieve Sabourin, I wasn't sure which would be the plaintiff and which would be the defendant . . .

the looking spoon

there's only one image currently on this site's front page that i can't recommend - look at them all and guess which one!

preferred phraseology

i looked at my stats page and noticed a referring site "flopping aces", which kindly mentioned this site as being where he found a favorite quote: "It’s Gilbert Gottfried loudly narrating your life wherever you go." I had compiled it in a list of obamacare metaphors, but the author took it in a (very slightly) different direction.

it turns out that he returned the favor, and now i have a new word to describe the original topic of obamacare - the vulgarity-implying but entirely-applicable "clusterfix". :)

sporadicitylessness

as you may have noticed, i have trouble maintaining a steady pace of posting here. i've heard that some sites pre-plan their posts and let the site automatically publish them at some set time. i'm going to try that too (and admit it up front).

the following series was collected (and occasionally slightly edited) from imao's "wisdom of the day" series, which they in turn collected from twitter. done without explicit permission, but judging from past experience i think that everyone's cool with it - especially because they're linked and attributed.

enjoy!
