Maiello: Where Your Tax Dollars Go
Doc Cleveland: Copyright vs. Truth
Jon Cryer isn’t all about winning. Jon Cryer is happy with a draw.
Jon Cryer’s best-known role as an actor was as Ducky. And he’s Ok with that.
If a neighbor asked Jon Cryer to pick up their mail while they were on vacation, Jon Cryer would do it. Maybe he’d miss a day, but he would never let the mail pile up.
Hardly anyone actually hates Jon Cryer. On the flip side, no one’s completely obsessed with him. And Jon Cryer thinks that’s Ok.
Jon Cryer is fun at parties but likes to leave early because he likes to get up fairly early. [Read more]
As with most mornings, I woke up and immediately perused TMZ. Because if you can't keep up with celebrity gossip, you just shouldn't be a blogger. Anyway, I was struck today by a story on TMZ about Charlie Sheen. This is not abnormal, mind you, as without Sheen and Lindsay Lohan, TMZ has nothing but blank pages. Hell, they are even going Taco Bell by combining their two favorite ingrediants into one big enchilada of addiction. [Read more]
This week DARPA unveiled its newest entry into the spy game, the Nano Hummingbird. The teeny, tiny $4 million prototype flew around a parking lot and then through a standard-sized door, all the while showing us on a small screen what it was seeing through its teeny, tiny eyes. The hope is that it can be used for reconnaissance and surveillance without anybody noticing, as it zooms in at eight miles per hour and gathers info we might find useful.
Dear readers, compatriots, and assorted morons,
There have been rumors that I would bow to the outpouring of popular contempt by resigning my position as Administrator in Chief at dagblog.com, one of the most populous and strategic properties in the blogosphere. Those rumors are lies.
I have faced public flaming several times in my illustrious career. I did not submit, nor yield to ad hominem attacks. I do not negotiate with trolls.
Nonetheless, in order to create the appearance of respecting the popular will, I have decided to pretend to hand over some of my powers to my subordinate. He will now be able to edit the titles of news links. This is a small sacrifice on my part, since he is merely my pseudonym in any case. [Read more]
David Broder stared out his office window. His calmness had an eerie quality to it, a feel that there was anger just underneath. This was a man obviously smarting from the closing of the Centrist Democratic Leadership Council, and it showed. Still staring out the window, he finally spoke. [Read more]
Now, on some issues, like the Recovery Act, we've found common cause. On other issues, we've had some pretty strong disagreements. But I'm here today because I'm convinced we can and must work together. Whatever differences we may have, I know that all of us share a deep belief in this country, our people, and the principles that have made America's economy the envy of the world.
President Barack Obama speaking to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, 2/7/11
America's success didn't happen by accident.
You've worked hard your whole life. It was a tough job with grueling hours, intense pressure, and dangerous working conditions, but you never gave up. You sacrificed everything to do the best you could.
As retirement nears, all you want is recognition for your distinguished service and a small nest egg with which to enjoy your twilight years.
At Dagblog Autocrat Consulting Services, we recognize your impressive accomplishments and appreciate your desire for an honorable legacy. That's why we've put together a full-service retirement program that will enable you to make a graceful exit and retire in comfort.
Each year around this time, I'm contacted by a small cadre of political bloggers looking to push something they call "Blogroll Amnesty Day." The idea behind this day is for big, important, A-List, nationally recognized bloggers like myself to give out links to small, unimportant, D-List, not-recognized-in-ther-own-home bloggers. [Read more]
WASHINGTON – After making campaign promises that they’d cut as much as $150 billion from the U.S. budget, Congressional Republicans could only come up with $32 billion in savings for the remainder of fiscal 2011, a move likely to anger their Tea Party base. However, deficit-hawk Paul Ryan, the Chairman of the House Budget Committee, insisted their work is not yet done.
“We’re just getting started,” Tweeted Ryan.
Ryan is set to announce that Congressional Republicans will shave another $378.68 from the 2011 budget by eliminating the GOP’s annual “Black History Month” party. [Read more]
Friends, we have been betrayed. A blogger whom you have long trusted to deliver information untainted by the slightest hint of conservative doctrine, a liberal's liberal, a progressive's progressive, a man so far to the left that he has been compared to Mao Tze-tung, Che Guevara, and Susan Sarandon, is working for the king of right-wing propaganda: Rupert Murdoch.
According to a reliable source, the dagblogger known to you as destor23 is a fake. Destor is not his real name. He does not have a flowing blond mullet and bulging muscles as advertised by his picture. His real name is Michael Maiello. Ric Flair, the blond goliath whose identity Maiello stole, could crush him like a saltine into his chicken soup. [Read more]
Then Why Is It Snowing, Mr. Gore?
The former Vice-President and climate change activist offers a number of responses to this most pressing question.
By your reckoning, the Earth is 6,000 years old. Give it time.
Because you keep voting for people who make sure that you can’t afford to retire some place tropical.
It snows on the righteous and the just and, well… you.
It’s not snow, it’s angel kisses. [Read more]
AMERICA – A Federal Court in Florida has struck down Capitalism, ruling that the requirement for individuals to live under any type of economic system is unconstitutional.
U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson in his judgment ruled that the so-called economic system known as capitalism exceeds congressional power.
“The Congress does not have the power to compel an individual to live under any economic system,” Vinson said. [Read more]
Having watched events unfold in Egypt this past week, I must say I am impressed by the bravery and strength of will shown by the Egyptian people. They are standing tall against a dictatorial regime, and that is to be applauded.
However, I am not quite certain yet if Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak should step down. Because, while I understand he runs a repressive regime with little to no care about basic human rights, this is not a black and white issue. There are many unanswered questions still, with the main one being - how does it affect me? [Read more]
First, let me thank the Undecided Voters who have asked me to give this rebuttal - which is like a speech thing I'm told and is important. Anyway, President Barack Obama's was talking last night was on a bunch of channels I'm told. I saw a little of it and thought his tie was kind of weird, but maybe it stood for something important like Barney. [Read more]
