Lion in oil

Fire Millen.

Bush's image, peg Amish sub

OK - if you voted for Bush, in '00 or in '04, don't you feel a little bit, well, I don't know...


This guy does.

Here's a new term for the 'borrow and spend' Republicans: obsessive spending

Satire veritas

So I'm bringing back the blog!

The reason I was gone for so long: I moved and got a new internet service, a free one associated w/ my apartment complex, but it had a filter on it blocking blogspot! How lame is that. I spent two months without youtube, too.

Anyways, I'm back. I got a recent traffic bump by making some satirical posts on Ms. Debbie Schlussel's website, which apparently people appreciated (see the comments to my previous posting, "To Illegal Flag, Elliot") I'm glad people out there still appreciate good satire.

Anyways, not much else to report for the time being, but I'm open to suggestions as far as subject matter, or even just post title ideas - I'm honestly starting to run out. I'll try to have a real post up soon.

Cheers 'til then!

To illegal flag, Elliot

Conservative hate group "Stop The ACLU" (they hate freedom) has certainly got their panties in a bunch over some pretty profound, though potentially offensive art.
It's a display of the Confederate flag, hung from the gallows.

I think it's fantastic art. Some Southerners are quite offended. Freedom of expression includes your freedom to be offended.

Anyone who believes that the Civil War had nothing to do with slavery needs to go back and take a high school history course. Ahh... remember when Republicans were the good guys?

Sex at noon, taxes

OK - pretty much two separate posts today, but they can both fit under the same header. Here goes:

1. Newt Gingrich is a hypocrite. He didn't do anything illegal, he's just a lying, cheating, hypocrite. He hounded Clinton for doing the same thing that he was doing, at exactly the same time.

I know Clinton lied under oath to a Federal Judge, but the question he was answering was a personal one, and should never have been asked. He couldn't take the Fifth, because he hadn't committed a crime, he was just trying to protect his family and their reputation. Scooter Libby, on the other hand, lied about a matter of national security, and the right wing nutcases are making him out to be some kind of scapegoat or pariah.

So much for "protecting the family". Giuliani and McCain have had much publicized extra-marital affairs, too. Mitt Romney belongs to a religion that supports polygamy. If you're a Bible-belt Republican, for whom do you cast your vote?

2. "If you take a walk, I'll tax your feet" - George Harrison

An 80-year-old couple in rural Illinois is being intimidated with felony charges by the Illinois Department of Revenue. Their crime? Modifying their car to run on vegetable oil (they get 46mpg) and then not paying $2,500 to register as a "special fuel supplier", when in fact they were using recycled grease from restaurant fryers. They are estimated to owe a lofty $4.07 per month in back-taxes. Shameful.
