    1. I like to pretend the cartoon characters in Times Square are representatives of the NY Gangs waiting for Cyrus to show up and unite them.
    2. The same people surprised by Hillary’s visit to Iowa must go into total shock at every sunrise.
    3. @patrickdijusto CM11 M10?

  2. Kerry Claims U.S. Has Found a Moderate Syrian Rebel →

    Kerry said that the government’s successful identification of a moderate Syrian rebel was a major victory that should silence critics of the U.S.’s strategy in Iraq and Syria.

    Andy Borowitz doing a great job pointing out how mock-worthy the moderate rebel strategy is.

    3. Not to be outdone by the Scotts; the Welsh are busy sawing Wales off from the England and looking for a native prince of Wales.

  4. ISIS Bans Teaching Evolution In Schools →

    They love guns and pick up trucks and hate evolution and feminism. ISIS is red state.

    1. RT @billmaher: I gotta say this about D C: few cities have more “I hated that guy in college” guys walking around than this one

  6. Red-State Cities Find Euphemisms To Prepare for Global Warming →

    The pattern illustrates a growing disconnect between the debate still raging in politics and the reality on the ground. In many city planning departments, it has become like Voldemort, the arch-villain of the Harry Potter stories: It’s the issue that cannot be named.

    The cognitive dissonance can only hold so long. At some point the denial side will have to admit they are wrong.

  7. Our Recovering Ozone Layer Shows Politics Can Make A Difference →

    A cap and trade success story.

  8. The Biggest Robbers In America Are Employers →

    The amount of money employers had to pay because they were found guilty of wage theft is nearly three times greater than all the money stolen in robberies, according to a new report from the Economic Policy Institute (EPI).

    That $50 billion figure dwarfs the $14 billion taken from victims of robberies, burglaries, larcenies, and car thefts in 2012. That’s less than a third of the cost of wage theft, according to EPI’s estimations.

    The NLRB needs to be reformed for the post labour union era. It should be the advocate for those who are robbed by their employers and it isn’t.

    2. Real lesson of 9/11 is “don’t let an enemy bait you into a fight on his terms” Current ISIL strategy makes me wonder if we learned it.

  10. Alaska Riot Exposes White Culture of Lawlessness, Violence →

    attendees said some of the members of the Palin family allegedly jumped into a fistfight. Police later confirmed that members of the Palin family were indeed present at the rowdy party.

    I blame hockey, reality TV and country music for glorifying such behavior.
