I'm ready to take on the billionaires with Bernie.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) reminded MSNBC of what liberalism looks like by calling for a mobilization of millions of Americans to take down the Koch brothers and other conservative billionaires.

It's perfect, the fun font makes up for all caps, and the message is spot on, so I pass it on unaltered.
 
Those of us who have awoken understand the frustration of propagating #truth to many of our friends and family who are not willing to accept or even hear it.  What are YOU focused on?

This makes my feel like a good outcome in one of my favorite countries could happen.
 
Really good commentary and analysis from James K. Galbraith!
James K. Galbraith explains the situation in Greece and shows why the politics of the anti-austerity government could spread across Europe.

I don't usually reshare photos, but this is a very interesting wind sculpture.

I just struck again. Click here, it's a really nicely edited and rearranged presentation of some of Robert Reich's activism.

Faux News has science reporters with no science training whatsoever.
 
Let's compare the backgrounds of science writers for Fox News and NPR, shall we? http://boingboing.net/2015/03/27/lets-compare-the-backgrounds.html

Recipe for vodka / pear / orange / ginger smoothy.

About one half pear. Slightly underripe is OK. A just ripe one would have to be perfect ... but go any further way bad.

A few pieces of a good naval orange.

Don't peel any of these. If it is a good orange the peels will be awesomely intense but delicious.

Fresh ginger is OK but if you do use a garlic press and use it very sparingly. It works fine to have so little that it's just a hint or perhaps more. I used a small sprinkle of dried and ground ginger.

I forgot one ingredient ... A few tablespoons of organic bottled lemon or lime juice there are several good brands but only at places like Whole Foods or cooperatives. The usual reconstituted from concentrate stuff I's horrible. Add some sweet wine instead.

Then I have this cheap but excellent Oster stick blender to macerate all of this in a milkshake sized cup with some Platinum vodka, ice cubes and water.. Good gin would also be awesome.

The flavor improves as the ice cubes dilute it so the last few swigs are nice too.

Fantastic design!  Straight to the point, the way a graphic should be!

I'm doing my part to make this public.

Edit:

But it probably isn't Scott Walker. There are links I found on TinEye that go back to 2008, and don't have anything to do with governor Wanker Walker.

It may be a photo used to accompany articles about gays and Nazis. There is unfortunately some affinity by Gays to fascism.

But Walker is so extremely right wing and so arrogant it's easy to believe this is him.
 
This is a 100% real picture of Republican Wisconsin governor and republican Presidential candidate  scott walker in college !!!!! Bwhahahahaha game over putz !!!!!

IMHO he was always this way. I was never very fond of his reasoning even when he was against the wars, not so much because it is terrible policy but he has a very old fashioned isolationist foreign policy. He's Libertarian so his principles were rather selfish and illogical in the first place.

+Matt Safari​ The libertarian doctrine of low taxes and small government doesn't work. Kansas and Wisconsin have both slashed taxes and services. The economic miracle did not happen. Instead the voodoo tax cuts created huge deficits and less employment. Kansas cut education so severely that the state Supreme Court has declared it unconstitutional.

Rand takes this ignorance even further with all the absurd "Austrian" economic theories that include hoary unworkable ideas like going back to the gold standard. So while I agree that cutting back on military would be good, I don't agree with him on anything else.

Other than a great place to get a beer, the food is really corporate cheap and awful. The heavily bleached flour used on crusts tastes like paste, there's was too much rather low quality sausage in my calzone, not enough veggies, ricotta, or sauce. Salad was iceberg and fake croutons and cheap bottled dressing.

It's not very good, just over breaded salty fried chicken, fried in somewhat stale over heated oil. It had acceptable spices. The only tasty thing was the beans and it was a tiny cup. It was tasty enough to finish what i ordered but there are better and much more nutritious places to go, i won't try it again..

The food is ok, but the magaritas are insipidly sweet. There are only mexican beers on tap.

For the prices they charge the food is OK, but not that memorable. The rather soggy smoked turkey on my sandwich was marinated in something mildly sour, and barely tasted smoked or spicy.

The food is not so great, typical corporate fare. The salad was mostly tasteless iceberg lettuce, and the croutons were made in some huge factory somewhere, salty, rancid and laced with MSG. The dressing was also not made fresh, but it wasn't awful. The calzone came with a rather bland marinara. Their pizza dough tastes like paste, no flavor, the flour bleached so white. There was too much meat not enough sauce or cheese, especially none of the usual ricotta, so it was a gut bomb, not food. The only bright spot is the huge beer selection.

Service is friendly but somewhat awkward but the food is amazing good and inexpensive.

Some of the food is really great. Prices are reasonable for what you get. I've had some tasty lunches here, not too bad for a chain. Decent salads and / or vegetables accompany some of the meals. They also do pretty good with the happy hour specials, all of which are better than average (other than the garlic fries, anyway). I do agree that the garlic fries are soggy and perhaps more than a bit too much garlic. The regular fries are better. Their in-house beer is OK, but they avoid making anything with any character or hops. They do an OK, very pleasant Pilsner, but nothing else to really get that much excited about. There are much better places to get good brews which is rather odd for a "Brewery" restaurant.
