Hope the best for me.
Thanks to C&L for the heads up.
Okay, now I will put away my crystal ball, pulling it out the next time I feel like making a fool of myself.
(Alternate Brain) By the end of this year, we won't even be able to put a man in space anymore.You know, the idea of conservatism was to maintain the status quo. I believe the phrase bandied about was "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." But if we can no longer put people into space, how can one not help but think something is broke? So, I guess the new concept of conservatism is "If it ain't broke, break it!"
Unfortunately Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker really is stupid, does not have the insight to recognize his own stupidity, and obviously failed in hiring people to handle his penchant for stupidity.
The stupid, it burns! So much so that I am roasting S'mores. If I had Jiffy Pop, I would make popcorn.
That is all.
So, now that I have figured out a way to easily and quickly add links to my blog roll, I have added a few more to the stolen roll I have over to the right.
One particular new blog caught my attention, as it did Tengrain over at C&L
If you are not laughing after reading that little blurp from The Grumbler, you are not human. Or you are a member of the Tea Party. Or you are a Conservative Republican Christian.
Anyway, what's the point of all this uncharacteristic melancholy then? Well, my favourite window on the world, the BBC website, recently ran an article "Is working with your hands better than just with your head" which examines whether a shift to a more manual job might bring joy to the masses returning to office drudgery in the new year. It's inconclusive, really, but I suspect there's a lot to be said for it.Which leads me to an inescapable conclusion. If you're bored with your existence, quick, go and get a hand job - before its too late...
Update: Okay, I have also added a larger Blog Roll, as well as removed the comment and archive widgets.
Update II: Okay, I also eliminated a certain large internet company's widget, which has since resulted in a quicker page load. Interesting, that.
Oops! I forgot to give thanks to MB for the source code of the Big Blog Roll. Actually, a little self disclosure here; I stole the code without first getting his permission. I am a bad, bad Rook and will now go stand in the corner where all bad rooks reside.
(TPM) Glenn Beck told viewers of his Fox News program today that the U.N., unions and the Muslim Brotherhood were all just working towards a New World Order and that protesters in Wisconsin were "looking to create chaos on the backs of the worker when the world's focus is on Egypt."
Glenn Beck really is a maroon.......
If you are wondering what I am talking about, just remember that some time back advertising was ruled free speech. Fine, but I still should have the right to refuse entry of those whom I do not wish to speak freely in my home.
And the worse part? They obviously do not read their own bible, because it clearly states icon worship is a sin. Elevating the bible to the stature of God is just such an act of icon worship.
And do they even realize how close to cretins creationism is?
And once again I set out on a new, exciting challenge.
I leave it to you to decide. Me? I am deciding whether to run and hide in the hills, or to welcome our new overlords with open arms. If they come with a book in their appendages, I am running for the hills.
I tried to find a worthwhile excerpt to post here, but damn if the entire post is good. So, I am just going to tell you to click the link.
All I can tell you is that it includes the sighting of an intelligent, thoughtful conservative Republican.
Seriously, click the link.
