We OWN this land. Our farmland has been in the family for four generations. No Oval Office CLOWN is going to take it away without some kind of serious fighting.

Obama Now Global Head of Al-Qaeda

President Barack Obama is now the global head of Al-Qaeda – bankrolling, arming and equipping terrorists around the world in order to achieve his administration’s geopolitical objectives – while simultaneously invoking the threat of terrorists domestically to destroy the bill of rights.

Since it has now been established that those merely suspected of engaging in terrorism, including US citizens, are subject to targeted drone strikes, under the terms of his own prosecution of the fake war on terror, Obama must immediately order a drone strike on the White House because the facts documented below incontrovertibly demonstrate that it represents the headquarters of Al-Qaeda operations worldwide.

More insanity at the link.

Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation imaged with the highest resolution yet (as of 2013)

Every few years, we get a new higher-resolution image of the Cosmic Microwave Background, and the Planck Space Observatory just delivered our latest update:

Not “the same(TM)”

David Brooks vs. the House Progressives

The biggest problem the liberal faction of the Democratic Party generally has is getting heard at all, so I’m really glad that David Brooks dedicated a column to explaining his problems with the Congressional Progressive Caucus budget that was released last Thursday. In a way, I think Brooks’ complaints make the case for the CPC budget more strongly than any of the praise I’ve read.

I’m not going to budge on this. Despite some warts (the odious DiFi makes me want to puke), the Democratic party has a “liberal faction”. The GOP has extremist right wingers and teabaggers to the right of them.

The GOP is all hate (hatred for the poor and middle classes) all the time.

Edit (for clarity): It’s not my position that Democrats are “great”, or “perfect” or “always right”, individually or as a group. It’s my position that there IS a difference between Democrats and Republicans; 100% of Democrats aren’t the embodiment of pure evil 100% of the time (and 100% of Republicans are, with the exception of the Second Amendment.)

March Madness on the Potomac

So March Madness begins today. The basketball tournament? Bah. I mean CPAC. The conference just gets lamer and somehow more bizarre every year, this allegedly marquee gathering of the nation’s conservatives; and this year, with the longest speaking slots going to an irrelevant has-been and America’s most obnoxious man, the trajectory is downward on a scale so operatic and yet so pulverizingly tedious that I have difficulty comprehending it. Can these people really believe they are accomplishing something? On rereading that sentence, I partially take it back. They are accomplishing something, all right: showing America that they are mad as hatters and thereby helping to ensure the election of more Democrats.

Republicans are just pathetic. We actually need two parties, or at least two points of view. What we have right now is right wing, and completely batshit crazy off the scale right wing.

I find myself actually wishing that the GOP will regain some level of sanity.

Right now, all they have is that they’re right on the second amendment (and DiFi is a disgusting piece of shit).

Trust In US Government at all-time low.

Views of Government: Key Data Points

Trust in Government
http://www.pewresearch.org/2013/03/09/views-of-government-key-data-points/

For the past seven years, a period covering the final two years of the Bush administration and President Obama’s first term, no more than about three-in-ten Americans have said they trust the federal government to do the right thing always or most of the time.
(see Chart on Link)
Our Jan. 2013 survey found only 26% saying they can trust government always or most of the time, while 73% say they can trust the government only some of the time or never. Majorities across all partisan and demographic groups express little or no trust in government. However, there are disparities: more than twice as many Hispanics as whites 44% vs. 20%) trust the federal government, and more blacks (38%) than whites trust the government. People younger than 30 have more trust in government than do older people. And far more Democrats (38%) than independents (21%) or Republicans (15%) say they can trust the government at least most of the time.
