I bet it was a good party.

I’ll also bet that we are glad there are no pictures to accompany the article.

I need one of these…

Not that I’m doing anything to be embarrassed about on this computer.

Oddly, this was not in Florida.

Don’t need to add much, do I?

Just listen! Don’t tell me how to fix it!

I’ve had this discussion with SWMBO:

Now, granted there were times I was supposed to just listen, but when she has a nail in her head the problem is obvious.

I’ve seen this a couple of times recently

This is well worth your time to watch. The action starts in the upper left. Watch for the guy in the white shirt on a scooter hitting the car at the intersection.

Make sure you stay until the end. I promise. It’s worth it.

The IRS Scandal and The Media

Do you ever wonder why the reporting on stories like the IRS scandal is not more hostile to the government?

I’m not talking about the conventional Red/Blue divide. I am talking about why Blue leaning reporters are not more aggressive in pursuing stories where their own side is clearly in the wrong. It seems to me that they would be interested in getting honest and transparent Blue team members in these important posts as opposed to the Team Blue lackeys obviously residing within the IRS.

Now, don’t go thinking I’m just a Team Red crank. I despise them too. I have often wondered why there isn’t more pressure from the right on Team Red too. It might be better on the Red side, but not by much. There was little criticism from the right (there was some, but not a whole lot) in the run up to the Iraq invasion.

I point you to this article The American Conservative, by Ron Unz. The concluding paragraph:

Consider the fascinating perspective of the recently deceased Boris Berezovsky, once the most powerful of the Russian oligarchs and the puppet master behind President Boris Yeltsin during the late 1990s. After looting billions in national wealth and elevating Vladimir Putin to the presidency, he overreached himself and eventually went into exile. According to the New York Times, he had planned to transform Russia into a fake two-party state—one social-democratic and one neoconservative—in which heated public battles would be fought on divisive, symbolic issues, while behind the scenes both parties would actually be controlled by the same ruling elites. With the citizenry thus permanently divided and popular dissatisfaction safely channeled into meaningless dead-ends, Russia’s rulers could maintain unlimited wealth and power for themselves, with little threat to their reign. Given America’s history over the last couple of decades, perhaps we can guess where Berezovsky got his idea for such a clever political scheme.

As I often say, go read the whole thing. Here’s some enticement, after reading the article, you’ll be able to do some Googling and come up with the name of someone that should have been the principal suspect in the Anthrax mailings of 2001. There are also links to other fascinating stories.

Let me just say that this graphic supports my priors.
