Crazy fuckers in the middle east, at it again. For not the first time in what, 3,000 years?

Air raid sirens in Tel Aviv as Hamas declares all Israelis targets

For discussion: would Obama/a Democratic POTUS or a GOP/teabagger POTUS be more likely to intervene in a century’s old religious war?

Please be prepared to defend you answer when Obama doesn’t commit US troops to this crazy ass-ed eons old religious war. Bonus points if you can find a GOP POTUS who DIDN’T “come to the aid of Israel” in a similar situation.

Jews vote for Democrats, and the GOP would love to absorb them into their hateful fold.

How Hobby Lobby Undermined The Very Idea of a Corporation

This gets complicated, but bear with us. Basically, what you need to know is that if you and some friends start a company that makes a lot of money, you’ll be rich, but if it incurs a lot of debt and fails, you won’t be left to pay its bills. The Supreme Court affirmed this arrangement in a 2001 case, Cedric Kushner Promotions vs. Don King:

linguistically speaking, the employee and the corporation are different “persons,” even where the employee is the corporation’s sole owner. After all, incorporation’s basic purpose is to create a distinct legal entity, with legal rights, obligations, powers, and privileges different from those of the natural individuals who created it, who own it, or whom it employs.

That separation is what legal and business scholars call the “corporate veil,” and it’s fundamental to the entire operation. Now, thanks to the Hobby Lobby case, it’s in question. By letting Hobby Lobby’s owners assert their personal religious rights over an entire corporation, the Supreme Court has poked a major hole in the veil. In other words, if a company is not truly separate from its owners, the owners could be made responsible for its debts and other burdens.

Maybe the pro-corporate religious-kook 5 have managed to undermine everything they stand for?

I need to tell you guys about my visit to Cherry Springs State Park in PA. We went last Saturday, during the “sky party” public viewing night.

For now…

Watch this video.

PLEASE read the commentary at the link.

Uzi, after you read the commentary watch this video. You WON’T be pissed off. It’s amazing video of the southern sky, where the MW is more prominent. Find, for example, the Large Magennalic Cloud.

Read this totally unrelated article, This July 4, governing in the spirit of revenge.

Re: teabaggers. They hate America. They hate me. They probably hate you. See a pattern, here? Hate.

Teabaggers should form their own country, preferably in Utah, and all move there to prove their experiment is a complete failure.

I’m awe-struck by the physical processes that go on, around me, that our best scientists can’t get to, because it makes me understand how little affect I have on how the Universe evolves. We live in a very special place, in a very special galaxy, in a very special universe. What are the odds?

And we argue over whether or not people who believe in magic should follow the law, or not?

Yeah, we’re a fucked up species.

The question is, should we give up?

I say no. Just find a way to make the stupid people STFU. You’d have to be stupid to vote in a way that let’s the teabaggers/GOP maintain power.

But, I can’t control your vote.

And I can’t control the awesome.

The universe is big.

OK, I haven’t changed my mind. I think the North LOST the civil war, and the South would have been so ruthlessly crushed by reality that they’d have rejoined us, IF WE LET THEM, by now, that maybe letting them go off on their own little experiment where Biblically sanctioned slavery was “Okey-Dokey” might have been a better outcome of the Civil War. Hard lessons learned are often lessons retained. Unlike our current situation.

I’ve also posted this link several times.

But this is funny’ the only confederate flat that matters:

AKA, red-beans-and-rice grits eating surrender monkeys…

Think a higher minimum wage is a job killer? Think again: The states that raised their minimum wages on January 1 have seen higher employment growth since then than the states that kept theirs at the same rate.

The minimum wage went up in 13 states — Arizona, Connecticut, Colorado, Florida, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington — either thanks to automatic increases in line with inflation or new legislation, as Ben Wolcott reports in his analysis at the Center for Economic and Policy Research. The average change in employment for those states over the first five months of the year as compared with the last five of 2013 is .99 percent, while the average for all remaining states is .68 percent.

Digging deeper, all but one of those states are experiencing increases in employment, and nine of them have seen growth above the median rate.

I am feeling so over-ruled these days. This social system has these specific rules. That social system has those social rules. Yet another social system rules…..  We are expected to know them all. All the while, we are expected to know them all.

 

The USA sucks these days.

FYI, I rule. You rule, We The People RULE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

For all you who think that the government has the answers to any and everything, I think you are totally and absolutely INSANE.
