There's a Magic Negro?

Big story.. Really important stuff.. Not..
Apparently once upon a time Rush (large bag of snot) Limbaugh had a guy on who had made up a little ditty to the tune of "Puff the Magic Dragon" but used "Barack the Magic Negro" instead.
Big deal right. A little tongue in cheek satire with some color.
Well here we go again. You would think Imus had called a girls basketball team "nappy headed ho's".
Chip Saltsman ( a candidate for the RNC chair) had put together a CD for his pals at the RNC for Christmas and one of the tracks is the "Barack the Magic Negro" tune. As a result all those with PC soap boxes have their panties in a bunch. People get bent out shape for some of the weirdest stuff.

Are we so politically correct, no one can have a laugh?
I mean really, isn't humor subjective?
It may not seem appropriate to some people but then no big deal or even funny to others.
Again, it's subjective.
Michelle may sing the same tune when Barack comes out of the shower for all we know.

People were rightly upset when Palin suggested Obama was a terrorist but that wasn't a joke. That was dirty politics employed by a fundie twit who had no business in that arena in the first place.
Rappers and comedians use "nigga please" all the time. Until the double standard disappears then the complainers need to shut up. There are plenty of songs about rednecks, pimps and ho's and you don't hear them complaining.

New Years resolution suggestion... Lighten up people...

Have a Happy New Year and be safe... Cheers!

"Clean Coal" the Grand Misnomer

Get it? Got it? Good..

The economy is in the toilet because of the greedy bastards on Wall Street and piss poor representation in Washington.

I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a much better New Year.
Looking forward to some real changes next year...

Is there any doubt the coal industry is a dirty business?
From the mining process, to the burning at coal fired power plants, to the storage of the coal ash from these power plants, it's all a threat to the environment.
On Monday one of the storage ponds in Tennessee broke free and flooded over 400 acres.
Merry Christmas from the Kingston Fossil Plant and the EPA.

Common Sense

This little nugget of common sense from Michael Moore on Countdown.

One of Mr. Moore's best points was the way "the Big Three" were treated/received compared to way "the Thieves of Wall Street" were accommodated with no strings, no accountability. Sure "the Big Three" doesn't deserve a bailout that exceeds their worth but then neither do "the Thieves of Wall Street". The so-called experts don't get it and neither does Congress.

Congress needs to freeze the funds allocated for TARP and remove Mr. Paulson's hand from the "cookie jar"!

It is estimated that 1.2 million jobs were lost in 2008. If we let "the Big Three" collapse that will mean an estimated 3 million jobs from the car companies and the other industries at work because of them.
