Since 2008 – Progress Through Politics


  1. That picture made me laugh and say, “ewww” all at the same time. I’m still smiling as I write this. Now I need to get to work. I’ll be back off-and-on through the day or I’ll check back in this evening. It’s time to concentrate on being a capitalist.

    of Cincinnati there is an amusement park called King’s Island.  It’s kind of like a poor man’s Disney World with Looney Tunes characters instead of Disney.

    Anyway, when I was somewhere around 7-10, my mom packed up the four children and we made the 2 hour drive.  On the way from the parking lot to the entrance to the park Porky Pig was greeting the kids.  My eldest sister said, “Lisa, go up and give Porky Pig a kiss.”  So I went over and yanked on that stupid pig’s sleeve forever until he bent down.  I planted one right on his piggy lips.  I just hope his mouth was cleaner than that pig’s mouth.

    Wait a minute, is that little kid giving that pig some tongue?!  I didn’t do that…I swear.

    P.P.S.  You can get a second COLLOIDAL SILVER generator, manual, and silver rod set for the bulk-discount price of $219 – only $100 more!  And if you get these two COLLOIDAL SILVER generators, I will throw in TWO EXTRA FREE BONUS REPORTS: “Life Saving Basics: Tapping Into the Vast Array of Home Remedies” and “What the Medical Establishment Won’t Tell You About Horrible Third-World Diseases Slipping Across, Through, and Around the U.S.-Mexican Border.”

    The talking heads on the right edge are blaming Mexicans, legal and non-legal. Savage made a comment about reasturant workers and sanatations. Malkin is calling for a bigger wall at the border. Jokes at the water cooler. Apparently theirs been a major decline at Mexican resturatnts in New York.

    I’m so tired of this.

    Maybe we could all mail Mr Savage a burrito.

    I’m eating Mexican this weekend.

    Did you guys hear about the Egyptian pig slaughter; it’s really sad.  I could understand if it was actually an effective way to stop the spread of the disease, but Egypt doesn’t even have the disease. They are just giving in to misinformation and panic because of the recent difficulties they’ve had with the avian flu.

    The Egyptian government began slaughtering pigs today as a preventative measure to stop the spread of the swine flu, reports the AP. Over 300,000 pigs will be killed immediately despite no reported cases of the pandemic in the country.

    The state news agency MENA reported to AFP yesterday about the passage of the measure in lower parliament:

    “The People’s Assembly urged the government to immediately start culling pigs and not to relocate pig-breeding farms away from residential areas for fear of the spread of swine flu,” MENA said.

    Egypt’s 80-million population consists mainly of Muslims, whose religion forbids them from eating pork, as well as an estimated six to 10 percent Christian Copts who may eat pig meat.

    I know it’s dorky but here are some fabulous things about pigs so that you too can be sad…

    – Pigs are one of the cleanest animals.  They only go to the bathroom in a designated area of their pen.  If their children go to the bathroom outside of the area while being “potty trained” they will clean up after them.

    – Some researchers think that they are the smartest domestic animals.  They excel at video games using joysticks.  And they have great memories; researchers taught them to understand simple words and commands and three years later they still remembered the proper actions.

    – They have a good sense of direction and(just like an absurd disney movie) are able to find their way home from long distances

    – There is no such thing as a miniature pig.  People who buy “miniature pigs” from sellers have found that sometimes their adult weight might end up being 250 pounds.  They have shelters all over the US for domesticated pigs whose owners can no longer care for them.

    We had a lot of them on the farm when I was growing up, and my littlest brother still takes them to the state fair.  I almost feel bad about the fact that they all end up at the Oscar Mayer plant.  But then, I like the taste of bacon.

    I didn’t realize this much when I was growing up, but apparently there are people who go to pretty extreme lengths to win ribbons at the fairs.  Like, jacking up their pigs on ‘roids.  Something to think about when you’re biting into your next BLT.

    This has been gravely mishandled.

    This virus isn’t even a particulary strong strain.

    Most deaths are of pneumonia and are directly related to the mishandling

    of the initial symptoms and signs.

    200 cases?

    A few deaths?

    We must be watchful and take precautions but sporting the Michael Jackson

    look and walking around scared shitless will do wonders for our national psyche.

    Don’t get me started on the blame the Mexicans talking points.

    SARS was some scary shit.

    You can treat the current outbreak with fucking TamiFlu.

    I haven’t wanted to weigh in on this yet but I think the Obama messaging and

    communications team is doing a SHITTY JOB right now.

    Pathetic handling by everybody all around.
