Misc. Stuff

Tweet Forgot to mention, winner of the commenter contest was Johnny Five. The criterion for choosing the winner was whichever non-spam came closest to being comment #1050 without going over. Johnny got comment #1049 and comment #1051. An added bonus was the fact that they were damn insightful comments too. Some interesting stuff from the [...]

The Problem With Democrats: The Progressive Liberal Moral Continuum

Tweet // As a conservative, I must admit that I am truly enjoying the current freakshow that is the Democratic nomination process. Between Hillary’s shrill rallying cries and Obama’s vague talk of change, it’s great to see the two candidates tear each other apart to the overall detriment of the party. I think there is [...]

Sincere or Not?

Tweet I’m torn about this clip. It’s Senator Robert Byrd breaking down on the floor of the Senate over Senator Ted Kennedy’s illness. Call me heartless, but I’m not sure I buy this emotional display.

In celebration of Mother’s Day, which was this past Sunday: Um, yeah. And here’s something else to entertain you in case that [...]

This has nothing to do with anything…

Tweet ….but I just love this video. Dizzee Rascal featuring Bun B, “Where the G’s”: No related posts.

Male Bonding

Tweet Like most male bonding this is incredibly fun, yet probably vaguely homoerotic at the same time. God, I love being a man, along with all the dumb challenges that amuse us. That’s the beauty of manhood, just doing something simply because you want to know if you can. Fuck the danger, fuck whether it [...]

Why Black American Chicks Like Thugs

Tweet Reminder: Don’t forget about the commenter contest. I have to warn you, this is either going to be one of my weirdest posts, one of my most profound or both. Even if it sounds really pseudoscientific and downright preposterous at times, I encourage you to read through it and keep an open mind. One [...]
