More Awesome from Harry Reid:

Pete Sessions is the Republican who told Obama he can’t stand to look at him, according to … Harry Reid


Harry Reid is spreading gossip and I could not love him more. He’s been ratted out as the gossip starter behind the rumor that Rep. Pete Sessions told Barack Obama, to his face, in the White House, “I cannot even stand to look at you.”

But why do I believe Harry Reid? Besides because “I want to”?

ReidRomneyRemember back in the campaign when Harry Reid was all like : “A little bird told me Mitt Romney never paid a tax in his life, why doesn’t Mitt release his tax returns and prove me wrong?” and everyone was all like YOU ARE A LIAR HARRY REID until the day the RNC accidentally confirmed he’d been right all along? Good times.

So Harry Reid says he was told about Sessions’ Southern Gentleman act by a White House aide who was at the meeting with the GOP leadership and the President. And then Harry Reid got on a threeway call with his whole Democratic caucus about it. And then they told two friends, and they told two friends, and Dick Durbin put it on his facebook and the rest is history. The history of Harry Reid being an awesome gossip with excellent sources, the end.

Harry-Reid-Scott-J.-Ferrell-Congressional-Quarterly-Getty-Images(I hope Barry Obama writes one scortcher of a book when he’s out of office, when he doesn’t have to take this crap anymore, and tells the truth about these CRAZY ASSHOLES that he has been dealing with him for the past 8 years. But instead, he’ll probably take the high road, which he has done all his life. Ugh! Maybe he can get Biden to ghost-write it, in which case it’ll just be the word “FUCK” repeated for 400 pages.)

I agree, the people who participate in “no bra day” are idiots. Why are people trying to sexualize a disease?

Please Put That Pink Can of Soup Down and Put Your Bra Back On

Posted: 10/17/2013 11:50 am


I am not a ranter by any means and I have been pretty quiet about “Pinktober” and what has come to be known as “Pinkwashing” in breast cancer circles, but seeing that October 13th was advertised as “National No Bra Day” and as a “fun” way to support people with breast cancer has pushed me over the edge.

Are you kidding me? How on earth could a day where girls and women are encouraged to post and share photos of their braless breasts and to walk around with their nipples poking through their shirts be “supportive” for…

This Black Bear Playing Tetherball Video Is Mesmerizing

Benchwarmer Sports

What a fucking life this black bear has huh? Probably wakes up whenever he wants to, probably does the 3 S’s, minus the shaving part. Downs some deer or fish or whatever black bears eat? Humans? Then goes out and plays tetherball for the next 3 hours like a boss. I would kill to have that life.

Also how about his tethering skills? I’ll be completely honest and say that 10/10 ties this bear would absolutely crush me if we played against each other and by crush, I mean eat me. I’d go as far and say this bear is an Olympian. Yup Olympian, that’s right. His hand-eye coordination and overall balance is on point and that’s what makes a good Olympian tetherball’er.

Ernterfest : A Halloween Story


The research I undertook for “The Watch: The Secret War for the Soul of Germany” was designed to flesh out a fictional approach to the many questions about the occult influences at work in the decades of German history prior to World War II. The work led me into many dark corners, not places I would have chosen to go, not places I would have chosen to linger. One of the questions I sought to explore was the idea that hidden deep behind the politics of the NDSAP was a formalized magical ‘master plan’ designed to empower the Nazi regime.

This was proposed in the 1960s by authors Louis Pauwels and Jacques Bergier (The Morning of the Magicians, Destiny Books). Further research over the years led to the origins of occult thinking in Germany from the 19th into the early 20th century. Until the advent of the Internet…

Handy Dandy Guide to Yankee Doodle


Recently, the word “macaroni” was brought to my attention.  I don’t mean macaroni the pasta, I mean macaroni the insult.  In eighteenth century England, it was used to describe men who care excessively about their appearance.  (Synonyms: dandy and fop.)

When I heard this definition of macaroni, I immediately thought: Ah, so THAT’S what they’re talking about in Yankee Doodle.

I’ve heard Yankee Doodle countless times, sang it, played the hand game, but never really thought about the lyrics.  “Stuck a feather in his hat and called it macaroni” seems pretty nonsensical.


Pure style. (Yes this image contains American Indians fleeing in fear and I don’t know why.)

So when I knew what was meant by macaroni in the song, I was still confused.  As Americans, why would we happily sing a song that makes fun of us?  After all, Yankee Doodle thinks putting a feather in his hat…

President Eisenhower on health care

No Humble Opinion

When you think of the “center” in American politics, whom do you think of? Well, if you’re as old as I am, you probably think of President Dwight David Eisenhower, familiarly known by his nickname of “Ike,” who held that office from 1953 to 1961. There was a man so politically moderate that both parties tried to draft him to run for President.

So it’s startling to read his January 31, 1955 message to Congress on health care. In that message, Eisenhower stated his belief that the health of Americans was a proper political concern, because without healthy Americans the nation could not be strong. But he worried that we were not doing enough, that millions of Americans could not afford medical care and were not able to purchase affordable health insurance. And he noted that our facilities were often obsolete and that we lacked sufficient health care personnel to…

10 craziest right-wing statements of the week –Tea Party meltdown edition

The Fifth Column


1. Justice Antonin Scalia: “The 14th Amendment protects all races, not only the blacks.”

No friend of affirmative action, voting rights protections, or anything he deems “racial entitlements,” the high court’s least inhibited conservative was at it again this week during oral arguments in a case in which advocates for minorities are challenging Michigan’s voter-approved ban on affirmative action in college admissions. The case reached the Supreme Court after a federal appeals court held the ban violates the 14th Amendment’s equal protection guarantee, in that it prevents minorities from lobbying for racial preferences, when other groups can lobby for their favored programs, Huffpo explained.

A lawyer challenging the ban argued that the original goal of the 14th Amendment was to protect minority rights against a white majority.

Scalia begged to differ. “My goodness,” he said. “I thought we’ve held that the 14th Amendment protects all races. I mean, that…
