  1. This commercial for a product called Talens Rubber Cement is from 1992. Was that before the gun nuts began strapping their penis on in holsters and such?

      Now that makes sense! Therefore, it is beyond understanding by a republican or conservative mind. They are hopeless. And immoral.

    There’s been a commercial running on Current TV that says something to the effect that tax cuts for billionaires are good for the economy but raising the minimum wage is bad for the middle class.

    America’s not just tolerance but embrace of hypocrisy is just mind boggling. When did the majority of our nation take leave of logic and just go with magical thinking?

    Like Indy, I believe it was in the St. Ronnie Ray Gun era. We just started to believe the lies, and then embrace the lies, and now it is as though we crave the lies.

    Jesus wept. No wonder our country is such a shit hole and sinking fast. We have no grasp of reality to keep us from falling into the abyss of magical thinking.

    • I’m glad to hear I have such fine company in my distaste for Ronnie RayGun.

      I returned to my workplace in a full-time job – and I work in an office building filled with all kinds of people.

      But….I have noticed something lately.

      Everyone is tuned into their phones – either so busy texting or listening to the iTunes – that NOTHING can penetrate their world.

      I mean ABSOLUTELY nothing gets their attention away from their addition to their phones.

      On breaks – and meal times – every one sits in their own little space and are glued to their phones.

      And …..I am willing to bet $10,000 of Romney’s money than these folks are NOT listening to the latest news – or to see what our government is up to – that particular day.

      Well….let me rephrase that first part .. If the latest news is about any of the Kardashian women – and their lovers/husbands and their babies – or maybe the latest sordid gossip about this celebrity or that one over there…. IF that is what you consider an informed electorate – then maybe we are getting what we deserve when our Congress Critters are so lousy?

      Let’s not forget – those phones are made by CORPORATIONS who are profiting huge piles of money off the exploitation of cheap labor overseas.

      SO…….Ronnie certainly preached that GREED is good – and to buy as much corporate crappola that your credit card can stand……and then watch as the Corporate Crooks take over our entire government..

      • BTW – most of these folks do not make a lot of money – but they seem to be able to afford the latest smart phones and blinged-out purses/shoes/clothing.

        HOW are they doing it?

  3. In city after city, town after town, neighborhood after neighborhood this tells the story of what America was a very short time ago and what happened in those short intervening years leading to today. It also explains why there is wisdom in knowing there is no such thing as other people’s children.

  4. The top one percent control 40 percent of wealth in the USA.

    The bottom 80 percent (eight out of ten people in this nation) own SEVEN percent.

  5. Liz Cheney listed as 10-year Wyomingite, gets resident fishing license early

    Skipping the legal line to get what she wants — sounds like a family trait to me. Cheney denies that she listed herself as a decade-long resident — “the clerk must have made a mistake.” How typically ‘Cheney’ to throw some low-level public servant under the bus for her own mistake. State law allows residents to apply for a ‘resident’ fishing license only once they’ve lived in Wyoming for a full year. One year ago — about two months after Cheney moved to Teton County from Virginia — she bought the less-expensive ‘resident’ fishing license at Westbank Anglers in Teton Village. Violating the law is a misdemeanor punishable by a $220 fine the Casper Wyoming Star Tribune reports.

    Cheney purchased her home in Jackson Hole just last year, after spending years living outside Washington, D.C., in Northern Virginia, where she also graduated from high school. After that, she went to college in Colorado and law school in Illinois, and observers agree that her Senate campaign’s biggest challenge is convincing voters that she even has a right to be running in the state. “Hey, Liz Cheney: If you want to run for U.S. Senate, try it from Virginia or some other state,” the Gillette News Record editorialized in July.
