Obama’s Birth Certificate Middle Finger To All Is Awesome 2

Obama’s Birth Certificate Middle Finger To All Is Awesome

Look at it. Picture it in all it’s glory. This is awesome. There is a bit of arrogant style in the Obama campaign selling a mug with his long form birth certificate plastered on it. After all the time-wasting ridiculous witch hunting that took place over his place of birth, this is funny as hell to me. Donald Trump should own one. He was vetted by the government, Hawaii confirmed his birth several times, and still these birthers persisted with their thinly veiled bigoted attack against the black man that they couldn’t fathom being in the highest office in the...

Irish President, Michael D. Higgins Tea Partier Smack Down Makes My Day 1

Irish President, Michael D. Higgins Tea Partier Smack Down Makes My Day

There’s a 2-year-old audio exchange from May 2010 going around with the President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins, on a radio talk show with a Tea Party organizer Michael Graham. Well Michael is gave Michael a good what for. At the time the Irish politician hadn’t yet become the president. Graham tries to get a word in but Higgins just steamrolls over him with a passionate tirade of truth and logic that brings a tear to my eye. “You’re about as late an arrival in Irish politics as Sarah Palin is in American politics, and both of you have the same tactic. The...

Government Flown American Flags Not American Made? 0

Government Flown American Flags Not American Made?

A nation’s flag is supposed to be the symbol of patriotism. Evidently, even patriotism is being outsourced overseas. At least partly. A bill floating in limbo in Congress is meant to curb that. Currently, federal law requires that U.S. flags purchased by the federal government contain a minimum of 50% American-made materials. The legislation would require federal agencies to purchase only flags made entirely in the U.S. “from articles, materials, or supplies 100% of which are grown, produced, or manufactured in the United States.” S.1188 – All-American Flag Act was introduced by Sen. Sherrod Brown [D-OH] June 13, 2011. It...

Supreme Court Unanimously Rules Police Need Warrants For GPS Tracking

At last a bit of sanity. It seems that among the push for more intrusions into citizen privacy there may be a few roadblocks on the path to our Orwellian future. The Supreme Court unanimously ruled that law enforcement must obtain a warrant before placing GPS tracking on people’s vehicles. “We hold that the government’s installation of a GPS device on a target’s vehicle, and its use of that device to monitor the vehicle’s movements, constitutes a ‘search,’” Justice Antonin Scalia wrote. Now this may seem like a no-brainer decision but so does the question of corporate personhood. Although the...

Dr. Oz Vindicated On Apple Juice Arsenic Claims

Remember when Dr. Oz  caused a huge controversy over arsenic levels in apple juice and the FDA and other medical professionals jumped down his throat? Oz was accused of various things the least of which was trying to cause a panic. The FDA  and others said that Oz’s method of testing for arsenic in apple juice was unscientific and therefore incorrect. They went on TV and said  he did not do the correct tests so his information was wrong. Dr. Oz stuck to his guns and refused to back down and now it turns out he was right. Dr. Oz...
