Sure, this mock-up is a #duckface fail, but it is meant to illustrate the broader point that hashtag activisim is, in itself, a miserable failure. It is nice that the first lady wants to take up a cause. Why not bringing back high employment rates? Probably because you need more than a twitter account to create jobs. Continue reading

Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me, particularly when I see something at the edge of my focal vision. My brain will take what I see and reinterpret it. Lately, it is happening all the time with a facebook ad for Otterbox: Does this ever happen to you? Continue reading

A request by the New York City Police Department has backfired. Its request that Twitter users share pictures of them posing with police officers has caused people to start sending in photos of police brutality. The NYPD sent a tweet on Tuesday, saying it might feature the photographs on its Facebook page. The responses soon turned ugly when Occupy Wall Street tweeted a photograph of cops battling protesters with the caption "changing hearts and minds one baton at a time."... Continue reading

I'm feeling amused and nostalgic today . . . or maybe it's the stomach flu. Anyway, I heard Rock With You by Michael Jackson this morning. I always chuckle over the line, "Feel that beat, we gonna ride the boogie" so I thought I would make a propaganda poster for it today. Related articles Rock with You Continue reading

In case you haven't heard, Attorney General Eric Holder has testified before congress that his justice department is looking into gun control methods that might include finger print identification or a bracelet that "talks to" a gun, to allow use only by the lawful owner. Of course, freedom loving individuals have nothing to worry about. In light of the NSA scandals, we should not assume the government would track gun owners through their smart bracelets--haha, that's just speculative fiction .... Continue reading

Scientists have pinned down the birth date of the moon to within 100 million years of the birth of the solar system — the best timeline yet for the evolution of our planet's natural satellite. via www.foxnews.com I studied biology in college, not physics, astronomy, or geology, but I am pretty certain I could have made a wild guess and still landed within the "100 million years" range of dates for the origin of the moon. My confidence in science... Continue reading

With temperatures well in the negatives and a strong east wind over the weekend, the water in a bay around the island of Lovund in Norway froze quickly. So much so, a school of fish became trapped as they swam in the ice. Ingolf Kristiansen came upon the sight Sunday while walking his dog. The water in the bay froze so quickly that the fish died suspended. (Photo credit: Ingolf Kristiansen/Facebook) “I’ve never seen anything like it,” he told NRK.no... Continue reading

Have you seen the White House's latest round of advertising for Obamacare (aka the Affordable Care Act)? It features the president holding a sign that says, "#GetCovered because nobody should go broke just because they are sick." Pretty lame, all things considered. Here are some signs I think the president should hold up: Check out some other great responses here.

It had to happen: ObamaCare is literally going to the dogs. One dog, at least; Shane Smith, of Fort Collins, says his dog Baxter now has a health insurance account in his name through Connect for Health Colorado. Smith registered with Connect for Health Colorado because, guess what? His insurance was canceled by Obamacare. The next thing he knew … he got a letter informing him Baxter had a plan. Smith said amusedly, “I thought, ‘Wow, this is so awesome... Continue reading

Nothing gets you "moving" like moving . . . or eating (but that doesn't have anything to do with this post). Are you stuck? Do you feel weighed down by a load that you just can't drop? Have you got some goo in your gears? Try running. Running is an all natural, safe, effective way to get your bowels moving. Running is so effective that marathon participants have been known to have a bowel movement on themselves during the race.... Continue reading

When considering who is responsible for the train wreck that is Obamacare (AKA the Affordable Care Act), it is easy to point the finger at the chief executive and look no further. Surely, the namesake gets a lot of credit, after all, he toured the country selling the legislation with his signature lie, "If you like your current insurance plan, you can keep your insurance plan. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor." Conservative pundits hollered from... Continue reading

John Kerry Wrecking Ball Washington (CNN) – Senator John McCain said Thursday he is "very disappointed" with the Obama Administration – and especially Secretary of State John Kerry – on the issue of nuclear negotiations with Iran. Kerry is "a good friend of mine," McCain said. But when it comes to Iran, "this guy has been a human wrecking ball." via politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com Related articles Drunk Dial Congress Beaks and Feet McCain calls Kerry 'a human wrecking ball' on Iran negotiations Continue reading

Did you miss today's presidential press conference? You can see the whole thing here, but if you want to save some time, I have summed it up in the image below: If you like your plan you can keep it . . . until we get through the 2014 midterm elections. P.S. Remember to vote Democrat. Basically, the president is under pressure from House and Senate Democrats who are up for reelection in 2014. They know the Obamacare trainwreck is... Continue reading

The folks in my office just bought a new air freshener for the bathrooms. It is Febreze Linen & Sky scent. It has a nice clean smell, but I started thinking about linen, and about sky, and how each of them smell. I imagine if you took the actual scent of linen and combined it with the actual scent of sky, you would not have a very convincing air freshener. I think the scent they are going for is actually...

Is it any surprise that the president who lied to us repeatedly in order to sell this Obamacare disaster (aka the Affordable Care Act) is still lying to us about it's implementation? The thing that surprises me is that he still expects us all to blindly accept anything that he says as truth. The story on the Obamacare sales pitch continues to change and new media pundits continue to hammer Mr. Obama with reminders of his many "if you like... Continue reading

Remember Congressman Joe Wilson? He is the South Carolina Congressman who shouted,"You Lie!" on September 9, 2009, when the president was trying to sell the benefits of Obamacare (also known as the Affordable Care Act). If only Obamacare was the only thing this administration lied about. Here is a short list of Obama lies that Radio Host Joe Pags came up with recently: If you like your plan, you can keep your plan You will have 5 days to review... Continue reading

(Newser) – When you gotta go, apparently you gotta go 140mph: Or at least that's the excuse 26-year-old Adam Lester fed to a cop in Pekin, Ill., after he was allegedly clocked going 140mph through town. Police say Lester was cruising at way more than the 55mph speed limit, then evaded police by racing through a red light—all while a girl, 16, clung to his back, the Pekin Daily Times reports. When police finally spotted the bike parked between two buildings and "snuck up" on Lester, "he said he had to pee," police say. Unfortunately for Lester, he was still... Continue reading
