The story of the weekend!
No, I’m not talking about the death of Kim Jong-il. That’s a pretty big deal, but I was more interested in a story that broke last night in which it was revealed that Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal has made a $500million investment in Twitter via his 95% owned Kingdom Holding Company. This is the same KHC which owns a 7% stake of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation, the parent...

Obama promised to ‘return science to its rightful place’. So why is he breaking that promise with restrictions on emergency contraception? By Hadley Freeman | The Guardian The Republican party’s self-serving and dangerous disregard of science has been a rash on the American government for some time, one that blistered into a seeping sore under George W Bush’s...
If I Was A Poor Black Kid →
I should have stopped reading this the minute I saw it was written by a middle aged white guy. Because this: I am not a poor black kid. I am a middle aged white guy who comes from a middle class white background. So life was easier for me. But that doesn’t mean that the prospects are impossible for those kids from the inner city. It doesn’t mean that there are no opportunities for them. Or...

I present to you another battle in the War on Christmas. If they’re all like this, I’d say we heathens are winning! I’m of course kidding, since we’re not even fighting (just laughing) but take a look at this ridiculousness: Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee provided an opening for the latest display of Christianists’ perpetual indignation by referring to the large fir tree...

pegghetti: masonpitzel: “Can You Tell The Difference Between A Men’s Magazine And A Rapist?” oh wowwww The participants couldn’t reliably identify which statements came from magazines and which from rapists — what’s more, they rated the magazine quotes as slightly more derogatory than the statements made by men serving time for raping women. What. The. Fuck.

Let me begin by saying, I’m not posting this link because I support Ron Paul. Oh no, I may respect his anti-war policies but they can not overturn the fact he has some serious issues. No, that’s just the title of the article and I’m posting this because of the last paragraph of the article: In Boone, a small town near Ames that looks as if it opted against moving on from the...

So have you guys heard about this guy Barack Obama? He’s made some pretty impressive statements over the last several days. There was this speech where he basically railed against Congress for not extending a tax cut. Then during a Q&A with reporters today, he rebuked the accusation that he is an “appeaser” by reminding us all how many people he has had killed. Later in the...

fortheloveofsagan: I like Christmas. I think it should be given a more secular name (to me, it’s a secular, family-based holiday), but I like it nonetheless. I also like Christmas music. Even the religious music. For some reason, people think it’s a conflict of interest. How can I sing… ^^ This. All of it.
