Open Thread

Another day, another thread.


  1. Slow news day today. Any time Joe Biden makes my Google News lead and hasn't committed a major PR faux pas, you know its slow.

    Health care vote coming someday soon, or so we're told. Ho hum, it's going nowhere, as it probably should since the Dems have pretty much sold it to the highest bidders anyway. The Repugs played this one masterfully politically, just as they always do. Have to wonder when the Dems will ever learn? Or, are they, secretly, wait for it, all one party anyway? Hmm...

    One of Obama's Generals warns that Iraq will require 30-50K trops for the foreseeable future to prevent civil war. Well Duhhh! Don't know why they don't save us all the fucking drama and just come right out say that they plan to stay there forever or until the oil runs out. I'm thinking "forever" might just come first in the form of some yet to be determined global catastrophe(s) the way things are going lately, but granted, I am disaffected, which is to say cynical pretty much all of the time. What can I say, it's served me well thus far.

  2. disaffected,

    The way our nation's government has moved vastly to the tea-party right, I would see you as a reasonable moderate.
