A Legitimate Question

Published on September 28, 2014 By bmagnus

  Ok, good for the NFL deciding that beating the **** out of your wife or girlfriend is a bad thing. But in the interest of fairness, why not suspend any player facing felony charges until everything is settled in the courts? After all, Joe Average would probably lose their job (mostly because of the […]

Appetizers: Let’s start with the NSA poppers, and perhaps a beer flight to wash it down? Soup or salad: The soup du jour is puree of police violence and race issues with a hint of civil forfeiture, topped with prison visit data. Perhaps the lady would prefer our Cosmo-inspired salad with cranberry vinaigrette? The main […]

Shorties Fright

The Monk who Saved Lives: Ittetsu Nemoto. The Priest who Preached Happiness: Let’s hear it once more for Pope Francis. Israel and Palestine: Just a few assorted and random links. You know you want it: Here’s the NSA, privacy, FBI, CIA, War on Terror, and related links. Broken:  immigration and immigration reform problems. Wow: Larry Kudlow seems to have […]

Music Monday: Retro Revival

Published on July 7, 2014 By bmagnus

Just a friendly reminder though: there is a difference between a fine booty and a fat ass. In Closing: a few birth control and other women’s issues items; this is why net neutrality is important to you even if you didn’t know it; a couple random NSA and CIA items (you know, they could halt the scandal by shuttering the […]

Music Monday: Michael’s Crafts Customer 4 Evah

Ok, so the Supreme Court came out with an extremely narrow ruling regarding whether closely held private corporations can refuse to provide contraceptive coverage for employees. So yeah, even if I were a crafty type of person — which [Deity] knows I’m not — I won’t be going into that hobby store with the rhyming […]

Only Shorties Left Alive

Ok, I know why some of you are here: to get your sweet sweet dose of NSA links. Turns out not: There’s no shortage of STEM workers. There may, however, be a shortage of STEM workers who want to work for crappy wages. Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me: Which of these inventions is likely to be […]

Source. Happy Friday the Thirteenth, and Happy Honey Moon. NSA: Aw, you know I can’t possibly go more than a few days without coming up with some NSA, spying on Americans, War on Terror,or Privacy right?

Music Monday: Ladies and Gentlemen, LENA HORNE!

Published on June 2, 2014 By bmagnus

Apparently, women still say bad things about one another just to preserve their own [perceived] social standing. Now here’s a topic I’d love to put to bed and never talk about again. Or more accurately, I wish the world would change enough that I never felt the need to talk about it again. However, the […]

Not Really Music Monday: Never Forget

Published on May 26, 2014 By bmagnus

Here’s a little bit about the real Memorial Day. A picture says a thousand words. In Closing: background checks; proud of SMU today for giving hope; unsupported; a few follow up items from yesterday; the tiny house; sauce for the goose is good for the gander; from the honest headline department.

Ok, let’s all take a deep breath. In case you don’t know what happened in Santa Barbara yesterday, start here. Like Comrade Misfit, I will not glorify this man above his victims by naming him. Other people have done some terrific commentary, and a few have really stuffed their feet into their mouths as far […]
