Cornstarch Awesomeness

From BoingBoing via Neatorama, this is a cornstarch and water mix on a metal sheet on a subwoofer. How did that thought process evolve? Who cares. Behold: super-awesomeness -

Gramm's "Whiners" Video

If you haven't seen Phil Gramm's (John McCain's super-buddy) saying that nothing is as bad as everyone says it is, that America is a nation of whiners, here you go (yay America Blog!) -

I keep hearing that from Rush too. Why is it that rich, white Republican nutters have absolutely no awareness of the trouble middle and lower class folks are having?

Because they're rich and do not have to associate with - let alone talk about - the proletariat. The only solace is that when we hear them talk we can hear America collectively sigh and reply "what a fucking moron."

Clarity: I'm not mad at the rich, but frustrated with the laissez-faire, let-them-eat-cake attitude and the cognitive pattern of a 3 year old that says "I'm fat and happy so everyone must fat and be happy! Let's clap!"

Us, Israel, Iraq, Iran

Just to be clear: we're using a country we invaded and are now occupying to give the nod to Israel to stretch their military legs (all three) and practice for a military strike against Iran which will most certainly start another war for which we are not equipped but will certainly become a part.

Either there is some sort of upper-echelon illuminati thing going on or Bush sees us in the Middle East as a kegger: "Hey, it's all good, come on over - byo bombs! Just kiddin' we've got tons more if you need them."

Quick recap: either we or Israel attack Iran and the fold-in begins: China dumps its currency and activates 300,000 troops, crippling us economically, dwarfing us militarily; Russia jumps in on their side with North Korea. And we're done. Because we're already barely managing two fronts - a third would knock us down and 2 new world power enemies would be very, very bad. And once the rest of the world sees us knocked down a peg, it's open season gangbang time.

Every day it's closer. Get your duct tape.

Those Crazy Black Republicans

Michael Steele Shills for the GOP

Oooh, item! Michael Steele showed up in my inbox today (naughty!) shilling for the GOP. I guess we should up the black Republican count to three now.

Michael Steele,

You do realize that if half the GOP lived their sweetest, purest dreams, you'd be their pool boy? Or driver? Or cook - if they didn't mind black people cooking their food?

Final thought: I know rich Democrats; I know struggling Democrats; I know rich Republicans; I know of no struggling Republicans. Says a lot.

Little Green Army Men Project

Green Army Men Project

From i-Report:
Mrs. Graves' World History class at Flagler Palm Coast High School is working on a memorial project. They are collecting one little green plastic army man figure for each of the fallen troops in the Iraqi War. It was a lesson started after reading about a class doing something similar for holocaust survivors in Tennessee. This was designed to give the students a better concept of the numbers lost in the war. Also, a way to memorialize them. Each student was allowed to donate one figure, and then they had to get donations of the rest as a way of getting community involvement. Donations have come from as far away as New Jersey and Arizona. The project is in need of more army men donations, as well as pictures of the personnel listed above the display, which is in the main hallway of the high school. The students will continue adding to the memorial as long as necessary, and then maintain the memorial as a lasting tribute to the fallen, but not forgotten. This was designed not as a statement of what is "right" or "wrong" with the war. It is a way to show that it is more than just numbers or names, but memories of people who served with integrity, courage, and honor. This project is about the people, not the politics. Donations of plastic army men or pictures of fallen personnel may be sent to:

Hey, About that Timeline...

Grumble grumble grumble, quip the administration. Cheese-eating traitor-monkey, grumbles talk radio. How about 100 years, cheeses McBush. How dare you talk about a timeline for withdrawal!
Iraq's national security adviser said Tuesday his country will not accept any security deal with the United States unless it contains specific dates for the withdrawal of U.S.-led forces.
Oh shit. They not only realize we're binding them but want to actually throw off the chains. Could we potentially start a war with the unripened fruits of our war simply because we didn't want to stop playing war?

Or we could leave and free up those troops for the upcoming war with Iran.

Hannity Shenanigans - Douchebaggery!

Hannity Shenanigans. Just rolls off the tongue, doesn't it?

I'm listening right now to the douchbaggery we all know and love as Sean Hannity's radio show. He just asked a caller who brought up Bush's approval rating to name "one significant, meaningful accomplishment" that the US Congress - which apparently has a lower rating than Bushbag - has achieved. The caller responded that Congress raised minimum wage. Hannity hit back: "I said a significant, meaningful accomplishment." Caller repeated "minimum wage." And then Sean switched it up to Minimum wage? They've been in power two years and that's all they've done?"

If your brain shut off at Sean's name, he just asked for a single significant accomplishment and when that was met said one was not enough.

Sean went on to talk to another caller who wanted to discuss Obama's support of criminals who have paid their debt to society and need to start again. "Okay, he supports felons" was what Sean immediately turned it into. What the fuckery?

ugh...need to stop today...just said Obama "has nothing of core values or beliefs."

In honor of this idiocy and twistaroundery, I'm working on a photoshop of "Hannity as Assclown."

Coming soon.

And So I'm Back, From Outer Space - Post-4th Action


Happy belated 4th of July where, just like the rest of America, you can celebrate your right to sit still in your camping chair and observe the big fireworks but not legally participate in their creation or explosion. Awww, don't be sad. Here: you're allowed to have a sparkler.

But, hey, let's not get all down on America on America's birthday (I said "get all down" - of course we'll go down on her later), the midwives of our country like Washington and Franklin and Hancock didn't know what kind of douchebags would be running the country some 200 years later. Instead, let's celebrate America:

Amen, SuperJesus.
