How many people can recognize their own hypocrisy? 
 
The right wing is pretty upset because A&E suspended a Duck Dynasty cast member for speaking his mind about gays and blacks.

Remember how the right wing reacted when one of the Dixie Chicks spoke their mind during a European performance (sometime in the early 2000's), "We do not want this war, this violence. And we're ashamed the President of the United States is from Texas."

+Michael Garvin Yes, it is different. But as I said, it echoes enough to disturb me. As much as I'd like to see people like him disappear entirely, this still bothers me a little.

They'll probably say this was all a "grassroots" effort that wasn't even suggested by higher-ups at NewsCorp or the GOP.

Yeah, I don't buy it either; I didn't buy that for one second when the Digg Patriots started abusing news aggregators and commenters...

Seriously. Why are all the clever lawyers working for the Republicans? 
 
This is a Must watch. Republicans changing the rules in their favor.

I cannot state this any clearer - get out there and Vote! Get your relatives, neighbors and friends out there! Become politically active! No more armchairing - Get out there.

I am not a tobacco smoker, never was. I approve of indoor bans. But outdoors? I think this is just f--cking ridiculous. The Boston Common has streets on all four sides and one  between the Public Gardens and the Boston Common, which make them, for all intents and purposes, one large park. And on those streets are cars and trucks, belching out far more smoke than a person with a cigar, much less a cigarette.

Public expectoration, public urination, public defecation and lots of other things are banned in public -- how is smoking really much different?

I used to say the Dems and the Repubs were mostly the same on things that mattered to the economy. No longer. 
 
Sloan Sabbith On The Debt Ceiling

I've posted this video before but I think the beautiful Olivia Munn as Sloan Sabbith explaining Debt Ceiling in a way that anyone can understand what these jackass politicians are trying to do.:

This scene from The Newsroom Season 1 Episode 8 - "The Blackout, Part 1: Tragedy Porn" is a great illustration of the lunacy of the debt ceiling debate.

SLOAN: "I just got off the phone with these guys. Listen to these quotes. These aren't from liberals. These are hard-core Wall Street guys who, whatever the world may think of them, know what they're talking about and so do I. Jamie Dimon at Chase says, 'Voting against raising the debt ceiling would be a moral disaster.' The Barclays guys say, 'This debate is detached from reality.' My Goldman source says, 'If the House Republicans continue this debate, I hope they're willing to mark the end of the dollar as a global reserve currency.' Please notice that he didn't say 'if the House Republicans don't raise the debt ceiling.' He said 'if the House Republicans continue this debate.' That's all it takes. Just the uncertainty. That's why the Dow's gonna close down 230 points today. Because just the debate, just the doubt, just the possibility that the House Majority might commit the most self-inflicted damage to the country since the secession of the South has caused billions in value to disappear."

MACKENZIE: "Sloan, I understand. I swear to God I do. But you can't say the same thing in the C-block?"

SLOAN: "Don't pretend you don't know that most people watch 10 minutes of news. The first 10 minutes."

MACKENZIE: "The vote isn't until tomorrow night. And it's only the first vote. You said yourself it was cosmetic. Why do we have to feature it tonight?"

SLOAN: "We should have been featuring it weeks ago. We should have been leading with it every night--"

MACKENZIE: "Why do we have to feature it tonight?"

SLOAN: "To give time for the people to call their congressmen and say, 'If you fuck with the full faith and credit of the US Treasury, you're fired.' To give time for the people to jam the phone lines of the district offices. To give the people time to say, 'I'm a fiscal conservative and you've got to put the pin back in the grenade right now.'"

They believe in climate change and every other disaster, all right. They simply have another name for it -- God's judgment. And they can't wait for it to fall all over you.

Introduction
Are you an artist or you wish you were? Here's what I wish I had read 30 years ago: 

“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.” ― Ira Glass

Or a shared 99% or Occupy circle? Or maybe you circled me because of something I wrote? Thanks! 

George Carlin on the Occupy movement. 

Howard Zinn on the 99%  "One percent of the nation owns a third of the wealth. The rest of the wealth is distributed in such a way as to turn those in the 99 percent against one another: small property owners against the propertyless, black against white, native-born against foreign-born, intellectuals and professionals against the uneducated and unskilled. These groups have resented one another and warred against one another with such vehemence and violence as to obscure their common position as sharers of leftovers in a very wealthy country."
- Howard Zinn, excerpt from The People's History of the United States  [He died before the Occupy movement was born, but he was there when it was conceived.] 

I believe in simple solutions to complicated problems. 
I believe in worker-owned businesses. I believe we ought to reward production and tax waste. I believe we could get rid of the income tax altogether and institute a carbon tax, if it was very high, would be transformative. Globally, the economy would localize and flourish with new businesses. Apprenticeships would come back into style. Scientists would eventually come up with a way to use solar energy, and the whole world will be fed.

...have people who will be rude and lie to you, but this one does. Details? OK. I'm annoyed enough for that. Though the box didn't say Mac, the salesman and then a saleswoman assured me that the device would work on a Mac. I bought it, installed it, called tech support when it didn't work and he said no, those don't work on Macs. When I returned it, I griped a little because I had called in advance and asked, and I wouldn't have wasted the afternoon and a gallon of gas if they had said no in the first place. She loudly insisted that I had not specified Mac, but having been a Mac user for 20 years, I was quite sure I wouldn't forget to specify, since most things that say Windows do not work with Macs, but some things do, especially things that use multiplatform standards like wireless devices. I said for her not to worry about it, she would never see me again, and on the way out I asked the salesman if he remembered me saying Mac on the phone and in front of her in the store ? He said "Yes." So record what you say to the bleached blond saleswoman in this store.
