When do we start arresting the wingnuts?

Where the hell is the secret service and FBI? These lunatics need to be in jail.

Why am I not surprised Rapist Garrido was a Religious Lunatic?

This morning when I typed the name Phillip Garrido into google I half expected to see something interesting besides the news reports from the last couple days. This is the guy who kidnapped 11 year old Jaycee Dugard 18 years ago, kept her locked in a shed and fathered two children by her. I suspected he was crazy but I didn't realize the depths of craziness that could exist. I kind of expected he might have some strange religious ideas. I found his blog, Voices Revealed. All I can say is, wow!

He thinks God sends messages for him for the earth and he has built a device that lets people witness that he can control sound with his mind. Um . . what? Here are some of his lunatic ravings.

During the month of July 2009 JM's Enterprises, 1215 Willow Pass Road * Pittsburg CA,(925) 439-8118 was the host to a powerful demonstration, the Creator has given me the ability to speak in the tongue of angels in order to provide a wake-up call that will in time include the salvation of the entire world.

You too can witness what the world believe's is impossible to produce! email: DON'T MISS OUT!

Um, yeah. What?

This document is to affirm that I Phillip Garrido have clearly demonstrated the ability to control sound with my mind and have developed a device for others to witness this phenomena. by using a sound generator to provide the sound, and a headphone amplification system, ( a device to focuc your hearing so as to increase the sensitivity of what one is listening to) I have produced a set of voices by effectively controlling the sound to pronounce words through my own mental powers.
I'm sure there are many hearing disabled people out there that could make use of a device that sill focuc (sic) your hearing. How exactly does he pronounce words through mental powers though?

This sick bastard really thinks he is called by God to save the world.

I'm sure this is not the end of the story. Truly a crackpot.

Deathers say FU to Grandma

Unbelievable. Because stupid idiotic deathers like Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin are too fucking stupid to read and get confused easily, Grandma gets no help facing end of life decisions. Way to fucking go stupid fucking idiots.

WASHINGTON – Key senators are excluding a provision on end-of-life care from health overhaul legislation after language in a House bill caused a furor.

Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa, top Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, said in a statement Thursday that the provision had been dropped from consideration because it could be misinterpreted or implemented incorrectly.

And fuck you too, Chuck. What on Earth are you idiots thinking? You know and I know that that provision had nothing to do with euthanasia and everything to do with allowing elderly facing difficult decisions to decide their own living wills. I'm sorry, but FUCK ALL OF YOU!

Would that be the stimulus stimulating?

Nate Silver has a great analysis of the latest job numbers and the trends in our recovering economy. Do we have Obama to thank? I think so.

The Fundamentals of our Economy are Strong?

I thought we answered this question in November. I guess there are some who just can't pull their heads out of their asses. Did they not see the headlines yesterday about Microsoft laying off 5000 people?

It's just a joke

You would think that after the November election where the republicans got their racist bigoted asses handed to them on a platter that they would starting thinking about not offending people with their racist bullshit. Apparently not. To celebrate the birth of Jesus the RNC Chairman candidate, Chip Saltsman, created a CD full of wonderful songs with titles such as:

Barack the Magic Negro
Star Spanglish Banner
Ebony and Ivory

This is satire? Just a lighthearted joke? Sorry fucktwads, you don't get it. You are racist scum.

The Entrenchment of Ignorance

It seems Bush is bound and determined to make his disastrous policies last far beyond his time in office. He is entrenching many of his ignorant political appointees into permanent positions within the government. You can read about it in this story from the Washing ton Post. This is scary enough but it is most scary when done with positions that require a high level of education like working for scientific agencies. Like this wholly unqualified person:
In one recent example, Todd Harding -- a 30-year-old political appointee at the Energy Department -- applied for and won a post this month at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. There, he told colleagues in a Nov. 12 e-mail, he will work on "space-based science using satellites for geostationary and meteorological data." Harding earned a bachelor's degree in government from Kentucky's Centre College, where he also chaired the Kentucky Federation of College Republicans.
Really? Someone who's resume amounts to chairing a group of college republicans is qualified to work at NOAA? Give me a break, George!

The list goes on and on . .

Representative Carlson says we Democrtats are to blame

At least it seems that way from his statements today in the Bismarck Tribune.

N.D. GOP names leaders

Nov 13, 2008 - 06:45:42 CST
Bismarck Tribune
Republican House and Senate members tapped their legislative leaders for the 2009 session Wednesday night, which was marked by a changing of the guard in the House leadership while the Senate's stayed the same.

Fargo Rep. Al Carlson is now the House majority leader after earning the unanimous support from his fellow House Republicans at their caucus meeting at the Doublewood Inn.

"The people have elected us as Republicans to be the responsible majority," said Carlson, a House member since 1993 who served as chairman of the government operations appropriations standing committee. "They put us back in a year when the Democrats took this country and tore it upside down."
Just what does he mean by that? does Al really think Democrats have ripped apart America? At a time when we need more than ever to work together, his divisive and outlandish comments are not welcome.

Joe got it right

by Bruce Plante at Tulsa World

At least Joe got one vote right. Don't get me wrong. I'm delighted as all heck that Obama won in a landslide victory. But I can't help but feel trepidation about some of the not so good votes that happened yesterday.

Ted the convicted felon was elected in Alaska.
Michelle Bachmann the neo-McCarthyist was elected in Minnesota.
Norm Coleman may eek out a win in Minnesota.
Proposition 8 looks like it will pass in California.
Antigay measures have passed in Arizona, Arkansas, and Florida.

We may have elected our first non-white president but that does not mean racism and bigotry in America is dead. Far from it. There's plenty of work left to do.

Take a day or two off but then think about how we can help Obama really change this country.
This victory alone is not the change we seek. It is only the chance for us to make that change. And that cannot happen if we go back to the way things were.

It can't happen without you, without a new spirit of service, a new spirit of sacrifice.

So let us summon a new spirit of patriotism, of responsibility, where each of us resolves to pitch in and work harder and look after not only ourselves but each other.

A Republican Stands up for What is Right

Republican Mayor of San Deigo, Jerry Sanders, gives an emotional press conference to explain why he is supporting same sex marriage in his city.

McCain wouldn't do this. Palin certainly wouldn't do this. Obama and Biden didn't do this. They balked. Hillary Clinton didn't do this either. A white male republican from San Diego had the courage.

Separate Church and State - Vote no on Prop 8

Californians, you need to get out and vote. There has been a lot of discussion about Proposition 8 that would take away rights from thousands of Californians. You better believe this is exactly the kind of church/state issue that many of us worry about. THis kind of discrimination does not belong in any state constitution.

This is one of the better ads I've seen against Prop 8.

McCain-Palin? Bipartisan?

I don't think so! They don't even want to talk to anyone who is a democrat.

McCain-Palin Campaign Snubs Penn State President

"He's a big Democrat. Why would he want to meet Palin?" campaign aide Russell Bermel allegedly asked a school employee who was hoping to make arrangements for president Graham B. Spanier to meet Palin, according to Spanier's office.

"I welcome eminent visitors to our campus everyday, including lots of Republicans, but [the McCain-Palin campaign] didn't want me to greet her or even attend the event," said Spanier.

Well, it seems they don't want any young people attending their rallies either. Even if you do vote for McCain.

October Surprise

Surprise! Obama has climbed higher in the polls and is sweeping more states than anyone ever imagined.

Please don't take these encouraging polls as a reason to let your guard down. You still need to GO VOTE!!!

Science Café in Fargo - TONIGHT!

The NDSU College of Science and Mathematics announces Science Cafe

A first ever Science Cafe will be held on Thursday, October 30th, 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. in the Stokers Lounge located in the lower level of the Hotel Donaldson, downtown Fargo.
Dr. Benton Duncan, Professor of Mathematics, will host the discussion, entitled "North Dakotans Matter More than Californians: Your Power and the Electoral College."

Is it fair that California has 55 electoral votes and North Dakota has 3.
We will examine a mathematical measure of voting power which suggests that it isn't fair--to Californians.
We will also discuss the practical aspects of this measure of voting power.

The Science Cafe is sponsored by the College of Science and Mathematics and the Hotel Donaldson, and attendees must be 21 or older.

Oil companies DESPERATELY need more tax breaks

You HAVE to vote for John McCain and Sarah Palin. The oil companies are in desperate need of tax breaks. With this kind of financial crisis, they won't be able to lower your price of gas. Help bail them out, now! Vote McCain!
