Whitehouse responds to death star petition


Secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016.
This Isn’t the Petition Response You’re Looking For
By Paul Shawcross
The Administration shares your desire for job creation and a strong national defense, but a Death Star isn’t on the horizon. Here are a few reasons:

• The construction of the Death Star has been estimated to cost more than $850,000,000,000,000,000. We’re working hard to reduce the deficit, not expand it.
• The Administration does not support blowing up planets.
• Why would we spend countless taxpayer dollars on a Death Star with a fundamental flaw that can be exploited by a one-man starship?


How Fox “news” Handles The Truth

It doesn’t!

After trying to win the election by having Mitt Romney blame President Obama for the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi and failing completely, there was one guy who didn’t believe the “story”, and said so yesterday.

Thomas Ricks, a Pulitzer Prize winning author, won the Pulitzer for writing at The Wall Street Journal in 2000. Of course this was before Rupert Murdock acquired the newspaper.

Mr. Ricks doesn’t last a minute and a half on this excuse for a television station.

Funny though!


Comic Relief Extraordinaire

And we all need a little of that from time to time, especially in a time of extreme zombie prevalence.

Here ya’ go:

Self Criticism Isn’t a Bad Thing

Especially when you’ve been exposed to unbridled capitalism for most of your life. Love of money has always been instilled in me as an American since I can remember, but the time comes when you have to decide between life and death.

Capitalism may have a place here, but when it has become immune to any oversight whatsoever by the people it effects, there’s a problem.

The thing I have defined as the strength of America, is that we haven’t been afraid to see ourselves as others would. Our movies have traditionally examined our weaknesses, in an attempt to make us better.

Our songs have attempted to make us better also. This is one of them:


Pretty Darned Funny!

Obama and Romney roast each other at something called the “Annual Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner”

Of course, Obama won. :)

On a more serious note: I hope Obama’s joke that Ohio, Virginia, and Florida are going to decide the election, as he looked at Romney, means that he is on to the fact that Romney’s team is working hard to steal this election. Go here to find out how.

Part here we go again in an ongoing series of things that make me face-palm.

On Monday, Mitt Romney offered a remedy to the problem that caused his wife’s airplane to land prematurely last week: Allow passengers to roll down the airplane windows.

Ann Romney’s plane was grounded Friday after the main cabin filled with smoke. The small electrical fire caused no injuries, but apparently did cause the Presidential candidate to forget the dangers of altitude.

“When you have a fire in an aircraft, there’s no place to go, exactly,” he told the LA Times. “And you can’t find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don’t open. I don’t know why they don’t do that. It’s a real problem.”


Morello Responds to Ryan: Must Read!

When are Republicans going to stop associating themselves with musicians who don’t like them by playing their songs at political events or saying they like them?

Read Morello’s great response to Ryan in Rolling Stone:

Paul Ryan’s love of Rage Against the Machine is amusing, because he is the embodiment of the machine that our music has been raging against for two decades.

I have to admit, I don’t know much about “Rage Against The Machine” or their music, but this interview with Bill Moyers shows his passion and intelligence. Tom Morello cares about people.

Ryan cares about rich people.


Here The Hell Are Matt’s 2012 Outtakes

Matt’s New Video Hits The Internet

It’s been a long wait, especially since myself and around 70 other people from the Salt Lake area hoped to be in it. Unfortunately, we didn’t make the cut. :( Matt is promising an outtakes video later, including scenes from our effort which I documented in my Post “Matt Dances in Salt Lake: Literally“.

I was going to wait until the outtakes video was complete, but when I went to one of my favorite web sites today – Astronomy Picture of the Day – and saw it featured, I decided to jump on the bandwagon now. This is unusual content for an astronomy site, but I guess Matt makes such feel-good videos, they couldn’t resist.

Note: If you want to read the astronomy site’s take on the video after today, you’ll have to go to their archive at the bottom of the page and load it in, using today’s date.

The video is only a couple of weeks old and already has almost 3 million hits. I love what Matt does because he’s an American who inspires people from all over the world to just come out and have some fun. We definitely need more like him!

I’ll never be sorry I showed up at the Great Salt Lake that day!

Most Utah Women Want Government Up Their Vaginas

Finally, I understand why there are woman who vote Republican.

Giving Utah Leaders What They Want

While most women might find it distressing that legislation has popped up across various states that would restrict affordable birth control and enforce invasive ultrasounds before going through with an abortion, these women find them to be refreshing.

John Fund Embraces ALEC In Public

The right-wing Guru promoting fake claims of “voter fraud” has taken his effort to a new level and, has actually mentioned ALEC online. Athough it’s, probably, only online at this point; the usual tactic of prominent American pundits is to ignore obvious truths. Fund’s article is actually called “Left-Wing Pressure Causes ALEC to Retreat“.

Left-Wing Pressure?

KFC, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, Mars, Snickers, M&M’s, Milky Way, Wendy’s, McDonald’s, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Kraft, Intuit, Microsoft?

Have I missed any subsidiaries? Who knew that the middle class had so many allies?

According to Fund, all of that “Left-Wing Pressure” came from former Obama White House aide Van Jones and The Nation magazine. :) He names John Engler, Tommy Thompson and Rick Perry as distinguished governors that “have come from the ranks of ALEC”, and even adds: (Disclosure: I have spoken at several ALEC events over the last 20 years without receiving any compensation.)

I’m not going to dispute that Mr. Fund didn’t receive any direct compensation for his strenuous speaking efforts at such events, but he’s not exactly living in a tent without a place to poop for his political theater either. Perhaps an air-conditioned bus? :(
