Michele Bachmann, make the yuletide gay: another post from my homosexual agenda

I wish grown-ups like Michele Bachmann would grow up – you know, not be selfish like children.  In the complicated process of becoming emotionally healthy, happy, productive human beings, children tend to look out for their own needs before the needs of another.  It’s normal when you’re ten years old.  When you’re thirty- or forty-something, not so much. Bachmann is all anti-gay this and anti-gay that.  And while I don’t think the gay marriage debate is the defining issue today – ask a gay … [Read more...]

Today’s cup: The Stanley Cup, Libya, Michele Bachmann, and sleepy wives are a bitch

No good deed goes unpunished. Five Pakistani men were arrested on Tuesday by the country’s top spy agency and accused of being informants for the CIA, aiding in the capture and killing of Osama bin Laden in May.  Think about this.  It’s a pissing contest.  Their CIA is embarrassed and angry that our CIA went onto their turf to get the bad guy that they either couldn’t find or wouldn’t find.  Our relationship with Pakistan continues to be a bit of a joke.  From the New York Times: “…instead of … [Read more...]

Today’s cup: Winklevoss, Japan vs. Chernobyl, SB 1070, Huffington, and Bachmann

The Chernobyl disaster in 1986 killed two men from exposure to high levels of radiation on the day the explosion occurred and another 30 people in the months following, though thousands of deaths from cancer and other illnesses in the ensuing years are often attributed to the nuclear fallout.  Monday, Japanese authorities assessed the damage from the Fukushima plant, damaged after the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, and increased the level of severity to that of Chernobyl.  Gavin Blair at the … [Read more...]

Today’s cup: oil prices, Libya Day Six, the Sweet Sixteen, and dog photos

There’s been no “Mission Accomplished” moment in Tripoli yet as the allied military operation to defeat Gadhafi’s (this spelling seems to be popular) forces entered its sixth day.  Seems the coalition fighting for the rebels has dealt a crippling blow to Gadhafi’s air force but he fights on.  President Obama appears anxious to hand over the leadership role in the maneuvers to NATO as soon as possible. The bombing at a bus station in Jerusalem Wednesday has put an obvious crimp in Israeli talks … [Read more...]

Today’s post: Japan, Libya, education and gun control; Michele Bachmann is a Dodo bird

Good news in Japan is hard to come by and so the press has grabbed on to the story of the 60-year-old man found ten miles out to sea, floating on a piece of the roof torn from his house, two days after the tsunami hit.  Ten miles out in the ocean. Just imagine. A second explosion has occurred at the Fukushima nuclear plant, leading to more fears of a meltdown and increased exposure to dangerous levels of radiation.  No matter how much the Japanese government tries to reassure a devastated … [Read more...]
