Get Your Dunkin Wednesday

Hump day. That the Lord I've got tomorrow off.

Here are your highlights:

U.S. Economy Surprises

Bradley Manning, he broke 16 laws

GOP shutdown scheme faces reality

The in-fight of the Republican Party, it's not good for America


The unique RG3. It seems he handles pressure in an uncanny way. Here's to hoping he has a full and healthy recovery and isn't rushed into this season.

Get Your Dunkin Tuesday

You don't reward bad behavior. Yet here we are post-recession with CEOs and Wall St giants making millions of dollars in bonuses. I don't think they've learned a single lesson and it's disheartening to say the least. So don't reward more bad behavior. *Le Sigh. Just give people jobs or stacks of cash already.

This is also how I feel about work right now. Anyway...

Here are your highlights:

Doctors increasingly mess up your back more

Incas drugged their sacrifices

Hillary Clinton just got hot

The sad state of crazy representatives like Steve King 

Economics: Triumph of the Doves

The GOP hates the gov't even more so when they're in charge


This New Pope

Is something special thus far. And I say thus far because it's so early in his tenure. It will be that much harder for bigots to justify their distaste for teh gay when the Pope states he doesn't judge. It amazes me how much one man can change so much in so little time; Pope Francis with his kindness, his simplicity has done just that. I sit in mass every Sunday and there seems to be a new revelation -- almost a relief amongst the clergy -- to hear a Pope preach love and understanding. We are our each other's keeper. Life is much richer when we care for one another. It seems this Pope gets that and it's something we Catholics, old and new, have been wanting.

The weekend went by way too fast. I'm starting to think I should request off every other Saturday. Forget this working the weekend noise...oh wait I work retail. Oh bother.

Here are your highlights:

No surprise here, Congress won't act on VRA injustice

Get Your Dunkin Thursday

Alright, it's Thursday. Passed the hump and time to dance!

Here are your highlights:

The GOP and the albatross of white racial panic

Texas v the Justice Department - yup, VRA was needed

Easy, simple technology Chromecast

Federal Reserve Chairman who will be the next pick? Hopefully not Larry 

U.S. beats Honduras moves onto Gold Cup final

The Republicans are trying to sabotage Obamacare -- when people tell me "both sides" it's stuff like this that I point out. We're dealing with an extreme flank of an unstable party. They are not living in the same reality and they're perfectly okay having Americans suffer. But yeah Obama's tone was mean once, so it's even, right?

PBO is making a speech on the economy today. He should talk about the obstruction of the Congress, the lack of infrastructure in this country, public education, green jobs and stimulus checks to the 98% of us out here who don't use bottles of Ace of Spades as props. Sadly, until we kick the GOP out of the majority in Congress, nothing great will be accomplished. Anyone who doesn't show up to vote next year is to blame if you ask me. How's that for the Hump Day blues?

Here are your highlights:

The GOP is going to go all in on repealing Obamacare including a shut down...

California high court refuses to stop gay marriages

Early bubble in the housing market?

Bank thieves -- the way we treat our less fortunate is unfortunate

The frightening future if the GOP wins the House, the Senate and the Presidency

I was off the grid most of last week. Mainly, because the Trayvon Martin result wore me out. I raged on Twitter for a bit, but the heartless and sociopathic responses of many was downright disgusting. I'm well rested now and ready to focus on the week ahead.

I wanted to give a shout out to Paddy K who passed his French exam and will now be shipping off to the luxurious Mauritius. We wish him and his family the best of luck! We'll miss ya buddy!

Here are your highlights:

NY craft distillery boom

Gun rights zealots want to buy Zimmerman a new gun

Reminder: the GOP doesn't want a better economy

Scalia has "jumped the shark"

Snowden Roulette

The guy has spun his wheel and it's landed on Russia:

MOSCOW (AP) — Edward Snowden plans to seek asylum in Russia, a Parliament member who was among those meeting with the NSA leaker said Friday.

Duma member Vyacheslav Nikonov told reporters of Snowden’s intentions after he and a dozen other prominent officials and activists met with Snowden in the transit zone of Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport, where Snowden has been marooned since June 23.

Snowden is believed to have been stuck in the airport’s transit zone since arriving from Hong Kong on June 23, as he negotiates for asylum in another country.
The activists included Sergei Nikitin, head of Amnesty International’s Russia office, and Tatiana Lokshina, deputy head of the Russian office of Human Rights Watch. Also taken into the meeting room were Russia’s presidential human rights ombudsman Vladimir Lukin, prominent attorney Genri Reznik, and Nikonov.

Nothing says principles like hiding out in a country ruled by mobsters and Putin.

He just better be sneaky, real sneaky.

Losing Hope - North Colorado

It's things like this that lead me to believe...we're headed toward an Idiocracy.


Representatives from 10 rural Colorado counties met this week to draw up plans for a 51st state they call "North Colorado," where they dream gun and oil laws will be more lax, Denver television station KCNC reported.

The secessionist movement grew out of its organizers' frustration with state lawmakers passing restrictions on guns and the oil and gas industry, as well as raising renewable energy standards for rural co-ops, according to KCNC.

The counties would need the approval of voters, the Colorado General Assembly and U.S. Congress to secede and form "North Colorado," according to the television station. Should the secession plan fail, county commissioners could propose a ballot initiative that would alter the state Senate so that each of Colorado's 64 counties would have its own senator to represent its interests.

“We need to figure out (a) way to re-enfranchise the people who feel politically disenfranchised now and ignored,” Weld County Commissioner Sean Conway told KCNC.

This is the fault of the socialist usurper Muslim is in the White House ruining traditional marriage and taking their freedom bullets. They have to protect democracy from the democratic process.
