I Got Your "Statistics" Right Here.

Dave has a very interesting post where he ends with, "It's no wonder the nation is in decline (and don't let anyone tell you it's not); it's not just our citizens that are bankrupt."

But my friends, it's not just Hollywood that's suffering, oh no; it's also our government:



We've gone from being able to articulately argue key differences in ideology while still maintaining the long-term goal of getting something -hell, anything- accomplished to the verbal equivalent of pounding our chests and flinging poo.  

And people wonder why education is being mocked and attacked now.

What's Worse: Weed or Restoril?

Another Liberal Hero Bites The Dust

Up until this past  Sunday, Cory Booker was one of the few elected politicians the average liberal could rally around. That was before he went on TV and made it harder for Democrats to argue that Bain Capital specializes in wrecking companies and firing people for profit. Now? Nice knowing ya, pal!

Look, I believe it's the liberal base's job to hold the politicians and pundits responsible when they slip or sell out. But there's a difference between that and getting puffy because you didn't know where they stand on all of the issues. And surprise, surprise, not every elected Democrat or regular left-leaning TV pundit is liberal on every issue!

So my advice is check these jokers out before you fall in love with them. Me? I'll be waiting for the liberal blogosphere to turn on Elizabeth Warren for saying something more moderate/conservative in a year or two.

UPDATE: This is what I mean about doing a background check, people: he isn't a traitor; he's just standing up for his financial backer.

Mormons Aren't Exactly Christians

Much like Jews and Muslims aren't Christians, really. But there are some things that people who aren't that familiar with the religion should know.

Oh and this is one link where some of the comments are worth reading.

White Americans Are Beginning To Dissapear

Well, actually it's the birthrate: white births are under 50% for the first time in like ever.

Such a turn has been long expected, but no one was certain when the moment would arrive — signaling a milestone for a nation whose government was founded by white Europeans and has wrestled mightily with issues of race, from the days of slavery, through a civil war, bitter civil rights battles and, most recently, highly charged debates over efforts to restrict immigration.

While over all, whites will remain a majority for some time, the fact that a younger generation is being born in which minorities are the majority has broad implications for the country’s economy, its political life and its identity. “This is an important tipping point,” said William H. Frey, the senior demographer at the Brookings Institution, describing the shift as a “transformation from a mostly white baby boomer culture to the more globalized multiethnic country that we are becoming.”

Signs that the country is evolving this way start with the Oval Office, and have swept hundreds of counties in recent years, with 348 in which whites are no longer in the majority. That number doubles when it comes to the toddler population, Mr. Frey said. Whites are no longer the majority in four states and the District of Columbia, and have slipped below half in many major metro areas, including New York, Las Vegas and Memphis. 

I wonder how the bigoted-yet-anti-abortion wing of the GOP is reconciling this.

Quote of the Day

"A trading loss of this nature is something from which JPMorgan should learn, and I think as well regulators should look at it just to understand what happened and why it happened. But…this was not a loss to the taxpayers of America. This was a loss to shareholders and owners of JPMorgan and that’s the way America works Some people experienced a loss in this case because of a bad decision. By the way, there was someone who made a gain. The $2 billion JPMorgan lost someone else gained."

-- Mitt Romney, basically saying what happened at JPMorgan isn't a big deal. One commenter noted that Romney has basically concluded that, "the investment banking industry adds no productivity to the U.S. economy."

He Can't Be Fucking Serious

George W. Bush is putting out a book on economic growth? Unless it includes the sentence "Elect a Democrat President to clean up my mess" I don't see how any doesn't assume he's doing this for comedic purposes.

My Theory On TV-Show Longevity

I believe if the people behind a show only plan for it to be on-air for 1-to-3 seasons it will last longer. Why, because like British television, they'll just be concerned about making awesome episodes and not trying to stretch things out to keep the cash cow going. Knowing you have only 15-to-45 episodes to tell your story will lead to good plots and better characterization, leading fans to want to see more.

Then you can sell out and do crazy shit like time travel and magic (assuming that wasn't part of the cannon early on).

Look, I have a lot of criticisms of Obama. I have been profoundly disappointed by him. But when he does the right thing, he needs to hear from the majority that we support what he did. You can't stay stuck in your cynicism every single day.
