If only we had more State intervention in our free market, then corporations would not be able to screw people.
 
The GM bailout is a gift that keeps on giving to the company.

Fucking stupid.  Amazing.  Stupid.
 
The overreaching nanny state.

You know the tide has turned when there's a special term for what used to just be normal, common, behavior.

A source sends along these photos from Brooklyn today of anti-Hillary Clinton signs everywhere. Clinton is expected to announce her presidential campaign later today. The campaign's headquarters are located in Brooklyn. The signs appear to be a riff on a group of supporters calling certain words often used to describe Clinton as sexist. Words such as 'secretive,' 'ambitious,' and 'entitled.' The signs are posted near Hillary's campaign headquar...

Some geeks pine for Firefly, but let's remember that Firefly got a feature length frickin movie after it was cancelled! What did Pushing Daisies get?! Not even a comic book follow up. Farscape got a miniseries AND comic books! But not Pushing Daisies. I need a spokesman for the Pushing Daisies cause. A great scifi series ended before it's time. Help me +Wil Wheaton​, you're my only hope.

"The Kingdom does not accept at all any attack on it in the name of human rights, especially when its constitution is based on Islamic law, which guarantees human rights,"

Fuck Saudi Arabia and Fuck Islamic Law.

1000 lashings for speech is not a guarantee of Human rights you fucking retards. Why the fuck are they our "Allies"? Oh, right, oil, I forgot.
The letter says the Saudi kingdom "does not accept any form of interference in its internal affairs."

The money quote from the story beneath that headline: “For months, Mrs. Clinton has lamented the stagnant wages holding back lower-income people and the concentration of wealth among a sliver of the wealthiest, a sentiment echoed in her first public remarks as a 2016 candidate.”

Linger on that sentence’s introductory phrase: “For months.”

Months?

!

What?

Hillary has been a political animal for decades. She’s been a possible future presidential candidate since at least 1996 — the year she last drove a car. She’s just getting around to figuring out what her politics are?
 
The revealing headline: “Hillary Clinton Will Run; She Still Has to Explain Why.” The money quote from the story beneath that headline: “For months, Mrs. Clinton has lamented the stagnant wages holding back lower-income people and the concentration of wealth among a sliver of the wealthiest, a sentiment echoed in her first public remarks as […]

According to PuffHo and numerous other venues, Doonesbury cartoonist Garry Trudeau has come out attacking Charlie Hebdo for "hate speech." It's unfortunate that in the article, whose text I copied ...

I give this bookstore double thumbs-up on everything, but this only makes sense if you know what kind of place this is. It sells used books and magazines, with a strong focus on The West. I would have liked to see a larger collection of sci-fi and graphic novels, but that's just a matter of personal taste. I was really amazed at the range of Western items, plus the collection of cookbook's children's books, and history items. If by some chance you're looking for a VHS tape of something you may just find it here, too. The owner is very nice; offered my wife and I some cold drinking water. BTW, there's no A/C in the store, so if you go in the summer it will be warm. There are fans, and I didn't mind the heat, but just so you know. I've been to a fair number of used-book stores, and many of them are just collections of whatever other people don't want. Reader's Oasis, however, has a much more curated feel. Note: If you don't already know, the owner is a naturalist. When I stopped in he was wearing nothing more that a big hat, an big grin, and a partial loincloth. I say more power to him, and I don't care what he wears (or doesn't ) but it's probably not what you usually see at a book store.

I enjoyed the Bamboo Club; a little pricey but good food. However, the one at Desert Ridge has closed.

Horrible. Avoid. Overpriced and they serve junk. On the bright side you get a lot of that junk, but it's so poorly done it's almost laughable. They have no idea how to make a Ceaser Salad (hint: do not use vinaigrette); the shrimp cocktail is served pre-smothered in sauce; the linguini is a awash in over-salted cream sauce, drowning the flavor of the assorted bits of seafood. The crab cakes are mealy and weak. There are many other restaurants in the same area; hard to imagine they could be worse.
