Random Shit I've Been Reading

Kidnapping and Bondage... In the Kid's Department. Seriously.

Marx and the 21st Century. Intriguing. May even have to read the Schumpeter book. (I know there's a dirty joke there somewhere...)

Prop 8 Arguments tomorrow (or I guess, really, later today). Streaming live! And since it's Cali, I don't even have to go to work early.

New favorite word: ecofascist. Love it. And well said, Ms. Barnett. Well said.

And speaking of fascists..."Think Progress has video of "Joe the Plumber" suggesting that some members of Congress ought to be shot." Hat tip to Right Wing Watch.

And if that weren't bad the GOP wants to pull rank they don't even have. While at the same time, flip-flopping on prior statements they have made. Well I say let 'em fucking filibuster. The President of the U.S.A. does not answer to the republican minority. Or the Dem majority for that matter. Some quotes from the flip-floppers here (hat tip to Right Wing Watch, again)

And on the same note....another nail on the head by RWW: "Phyllis Schlafly says that 'liberals tried to filibuster the confirmation of [Samuel] Alito' and that it set 'an example for Republicans to follow if President Barack Obama nominates a justice out of touch with the American people.' Does that mean Alito is out of touch with the American people?" Priceless.

Oh, and by the way, did you hear? Autism is not caused by vaccinations.
