Just a quick follow up on that Colbert thing
Below is the news blurb that ran on Fox news regarding the Super PAC ruling: The Federal Election Commission says comedian Stephen Colbert can use his TV show’s resources to boost his political action committee. But he must publicly disclose some major expenses as in-kind contributions from the show’s corporate owners. Colbert said Thursday that he could not have been happier...
Let me tell you how to have a great Wednesday...
You walk your dog with your lovely girlfriend (or whoever) You play dungeons and dragons for the first time and meet some rad new friends who seem genuinely welcoming, funny, and interesting. You eat some of your favorite chinese food. You meet up with some of your awesome old friends and you go see Times New Viking. You get home 3 hours later than you usually try to go to bed. You stay up...

We have a nuclear power site in danger due to flooding right now We ALSO have a nuclear weapons research site in danger from a gigantic wild fire. I swear to god if there are suddenly dangerous situations at nuclear sites near ice, in a desert, a forest, and metropolis, I am going to quit my job and start adventuring.

I was listening to some pundit or other the other day (I’m terribly at keeping track, sorry). He made an interesting point- Most republicans, he said, know exactly what needs to happen regarding tax increases, but can’t concede it until the 11th hour without looking weak to their constituency. Even though it needs to happen for this country to move forward they will hold this process...

Magiquest. At the entrance you get a wand that is basically a wiimote used only to point. You get quests to find different items through a “magical kingdom”, which are like chests, swords in stones, etc. When you find it, you point the wand at the object. It then lights up in some fun way and gives you a message “GOOD DAY ADVENTURER YOU HAVE FOUND THE FEYHOLMES OF THE FAIRY...

digitalsocrates: classicmcconnell: The peace loving Republicans are standing up to Obama about the needless war in Libya. I think it is a fair point that we are engaging in an extended war without congressional approval. The justification may be being co-opted for partisan gain, but the point does stand that after 90 days we should have Congressional Approval to stay involved in Libya. ...

In which a black football player opposes gay marriage because: “It is not justifiable to alter a long-standing institution because a minority — an influential minority — has … an agenda,” Take a moment to let that once sink in. Now try to get your eye to stop twitching.

Same staff. Same terrible twisting of a quote out of context. Here is what the ACTUAL quote says, in the body of the story. “I’m sure there are days where I say that one term is enough,’’ Obama said. “What keeps me going is a belief that the work that we started in 2009 is not yet complete.’’ Here’s the thing. Anyone worth their ink in the news industry knows that a decent percentage of...

If you’re going to read any single headline today that is completely misleading, so much so that it looks as if it is intentionally twisting a quote out of context, this should be it. Kudos to the uncredited TODAY staff who are aware enough of their own shortcomings to not even put their name at the head of their terribly misleading article, and to msnbc for running it unfiltered.

fivenerds: Dear President Obama, I’m sincerely disappointed with this administration’s ability to stimulate an economic recovery. While I am not a Democrat, when you were elected, I was pleased with America’s decision to elect you. The economy was showing signs of an economic break-down, and I thought… In a perfect world these would be great ideas. Unfortunately they don’t...

Why are Democrats gunning for their own? The party’s leader in the House, Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, has called for an ethics committee investigation to see whether Weiner’s actions violated any House rules. REGARDLESS of whether or not the acts themselves were reprehensible (or obviously not). The ONLY thing coming out of democrats should be a slap on the wrist, or maybe a...

Long story short - Proposed new mortgage regulation, coming off of the 2008 bubble burst, would require new home buyers to come up with a 20% down payment, amongst other new regulation. Imagine being a first time home owner and trying to come up with 30-50k or face a huge penalty in interest (up to 3% points, which is a LOT of money over time). There is a way around it, of course, to stick with...
