“Hey, I wonder what heterosexual, white men think about this. We never hear from them.” — everyone (beginning of time - present)
Fuck you, Mike Huckabee.
So you know what that means! Get out there rap… oh wait…
Cognitive dissonance will make people say some of the CRAZIEST SHIT.
[“Papa” John] Schnatter estimates pizzas under Obamacare will cost 11 to 14 cents extra, “or 15 to 20 cents per order from a corporate basis.”
STOP THE PRESSES, PIZZA WILL COST 14¢ MORE! 14¢ to take care of my employees and have every human being ante into health care. Jesus, if it’s only going to cost us 14 more ¢ a pizza we should have done this a long ass time ago!

My brain just exploded…
Hire executives with really high pay, then fire your staff days later. Classy move, wonder if they got a bonus for such brilliant decision making?
It’s ‘Curt’, but the rest is true.
Former major league pitcher (and rich guy) Kurt Shilling is a Tea Party supporter, GWB & McCain/Palin Backer etc. He, of course, “hates” government spending on anything for poor people etc etc… So OF COURSE he took a $75million dollar interest free loan from the state of Rhode Island, burned through all the money and now can’t/won’t pay it back… and in fact now owes RI over $112 million that it will likely NEVER SEE… THIS is a “job creator”? This is a “small government” guy? NO. This is a sniveling douchebag who screams about ‘welfare’ and ‘handouts’ and ‘government interference’ …and then grabs as much tax-payer $$ as he grubby hands can hold, squanders it and walks away… now THAT IS A TRUE REPUBLICAN. USA ! USA!
I love it when social platforms and movements that are co-opted by the rich and subsequently followed by mindless mobs. Favorite. Ever.
Union Workers Replaced With Prison Labor Under Scott Walker’s Collective Bargaining Law
While Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s (R) law dismantling collective bargaining rights has harmed teachers, nurses, and other civil servants, it’s helping a different group in Wisconsinites — inmates. Prisoners are now taking up jobs that used to be held by unionized workers in some parts of the state.
We make up indefensible laws to incarcerate citizens (for video taping police officers, sending their children to good schools or smoking marijuana), then enslave those citizens for cheap labor. It’s very similar to indentured servitude, but without consent (and thus less morally defensible). Will we continue to allow the upper class to make serfs out of us?
Oh.My.God. I am so fucking sick of this shit. And from noted PHD candidate in political science Joe Rogan no less!
Seriously this is starting to make Democrats look like asshats. He resigned. It’s over move on. There’s a national election coming up. Don’t mire yourself down in this whiny bullshit. Do I wish GWB was tried for war crimes at the Hague? Yes! But I also have no qualms in seeing this pampered and arrogant camera-whore step down from his position. Can’t we all agree to keep shit in perspective?
Additional Answer: are you new here?
And seriously, not every message he sent was consensual. There were women who did not want to see his dick. And he some pictures of his penis as a “joke”, that’s straight up harassment. If some guy unsolicited showed you his penis on the street you’d call it incident exposure (and he’d probably serve time) but when a congressman does it over twitter he’s just being human.
The point isn’t that what Weiner did was okay or good, the point is that the “Serious People” who are in an uproar over Weiner’s actions (which, as you say, could constitute indecent exposure) are the same people who apologize for the lies and crimes that led to the deaths of hundred of thousands of civilians in foreign countries. Pointing out that those positions are inconsistent and violently hypocritical is not the same as a defense of sending dick photos unsolicited (which I actually haven’t seen evidence of, despite how often it’s repeated, which isn’t to say it didn’t happen, only that I still haven’t seen any evidence that it did).
I don’t really see how GWB is responsible for the Iraq War like you’re saying he is. He listened to his intelligence and acted on it. Were he to not listen to his intelligence he’d be an incompentent President. But he listened to his intelligence, as any remotely conscious being would, and acted on it. The intelligence was wrong, so we blame him? No. Blame his intelligence. The CIA, whoever provided the information, because those are people in power.
I mean think about how bunched up your panties would be if GWB did not act on his intelligence and something horrible happened. You have to listen to what is provided.
GWB manufactured that intelligence, it wasn’t as if it came to him via the CIA independently. He punished CIA officers who produced intelligence that suggested Saddam had no WMDs, and lied about what intelligence he did have.
The hypocrisy in Weiner and Clinton getting as much political backlash as they did and Bush not getting near enough should be pointed out. Sexual harrassment and acting like a douche are one thing…
But I think everyone should be able to agree that if we go into a war and we find out everyone reason for going in was absolute bunk, we should be asking questions.
Just to figure out what went wrong, if nothing else.
That should be a no brainer, something went wrong, gross numbers of human lives lost; we should know what went wrong.
Now we’re pretty sure Bush, Cheney & Cabinet, warped, lied or misrepresented intelligence against the recommendation of the people giving it? This is after receiving a report saying ‘Bin Laden Determined to Attack Inside the US’ and being warned of it’s imminent threat…*
Scooter Libby (Cheney’s lap dog) commits treason by outing a spy soon after her husband comes out against the war?
But someone show’s their dick or gets a BJ in the oval office and THAT’s what we get unreasonably angry about… STEP DOWN, WHAT A MONSTER, OMG, dong was involved.
If you think nothing suspicious happened at the outset, the reconstruction, or the aftermath of the Iraq war and you feel like being vocal… please, please, please do some research. It’s out there, everywhere, and it’s not coming from just one source, or just from the ‘liberal media’ or just ‘pacifists’.
The amount of decisions and events that at BEST can be called ‘mishandling’… well, you have to at least raise an eyebrow.
* As an interesting aside, Clinton actually wanted to hunt down Bin Laden while he was in office, the Taliban bombed a US Embassy in Africa and killed an awful lot of folks. But you know why he didn’t get much political support for that effort? It was in the middle of the Kenn Starr report coming out and before Clinton owned up to his infidelities. That’s why pointing out this kind of hypocrisy is a really good idea.
