Grayson may be voted out now, but Ron Paul joins ranks with Barney Frank to keep the bipartisan fires burning.  Say what you want to about Ron Paul, but he reaches across the aisle more than most Republicans.

The American Fear Industry has always been doubleplusgood.

Global warming deniers better watch out.  Science might not be giving up it’s lunch money much longer.

First they came for the BitTorrent sites and I said nothing, for I was only a mere blogger. 

The US wrongly arrests and “interrogates” an innocent German citizen.  And then threatens Germany to mind it’s place and stay out of it.  There’s no room for Integrity in a war of Truthiness.

Holy shit!  I think I just found the asscrack of the internet.  Seriously, this has got to be the most racist thing in existence.  Lots of Neocons and Rush Limbaugh fans there though.  Hmmmmm.

Latest Wikileaks release shows the US government has been trying to collect DNA, iris scans, and fingerprints from various world leaders.  Don’t worry citizen.  They’ve already had yours for years.

More TSA crap.  Woman is treated like a suicide bomber over breast milk.

It appears that National Opt-out Day may have worked after all.  Just not like it was expected to.

Somehow, we didn’t get bombed back to the stone age by terrorists.  Even though the TSA opted to rope off many of it’s scanners and used non-groping methods of pat downs.  Imagine that!

News Corp. hires North Korean web developers.  So a Taliban endorsing Saudi prince as a #2 investor just wasn’t enough for them.  Meanwhile “Real ‘Murika” believes and believes and believes.

Kenya’s prime minister wants the world to know that he really doesn’t understand jack shit about homosexuality.  Oh, and he want to hunt down and prosecute homosexuals.  This is bound to cause some cognitive dissonance with the Birther crowd.

I really liked this video.

Israeli soldiers demoted for using a Palestinian child as a human shield.

The TSA asks that you please don’t participate in scanning boycotts while travelling this holiday season, as it would cause monumental delays and prove to be an extremely effective method of protest.

Stripping down to avoid delays with the TSA doesn’t work. 

Deepak Chopra travels with Obama to India to sell more TSA scanners.  Sorry for the sketchy info on this so far, but it does appear to be true.  It even got mention on Democracy Now.  And no, it’s not THAT Deepak Chopra!

The Simpsons sticks it to Fox News.

When being a Bluedog becomes an ongoing Republican strategy.

Fox News flaunts T&A in order to gain viewers.  Someone please give Republicans some real porn so they’ll quit mixing it with news.

What better way to launch a fake news network than with an anchor from a fake news network.

This GOP representative is one creepy-assed bastard.  I need a shower now.  And a restraining order, just in case.

Some cool food art.

Pilots are now exempt from the TSA.  Some animals are more equal than others.

New parody TSA bumper stickers are finding their way around the net.

Remember that old saying, “Better to be pissed off than pissed on.”?  Well, this guy got both.

Obama invites American’s to bask in their freedoms with a quick groping from a uniformed stranger.   I guess we should be thankful he’s not the Pope.

Speaking of organizations that condone fondling little children:

We all knew it would eventually come to this.  The TSA is now patting down children.  Big Brother is a pedophile.

Obama’s oppressive TSA security regime just came out and said “Fuck all y’all!”.  Real ‘Murikans somehow don’t have a problem with this.

Oh, but wait!  I guess Real ‘Murikans finally DO have a  problem with the TSA after all..  Now that they’re messing with our troops.

To top it all off, Ron Paul has a problem with the TSA too.  Grab your popcorn.  This might get good.

Florida airport opts out of TSA screening and opts in for private security instead.  Attention Tea Partiers!  The Free Market bandwagon of freedomy freedomness is now boarding.  Break out the tea bags and Jazzy scooters and I’ll be right there with you on this one.

There’s money to be had when you’re forcing backscatter x-ray scanners on the populace.

Good news everybody! The TSA won’t grope you or scan you if you’re sporting a gigantic Boehner.

Fuck the TSA!

Bigotry just cost the state of Arizona $140 million in revenue.  Take that, brown people!

Democrats call out Republican congresscritters to put their money where their mouth is and drop their “socialized” tax payer funded Big Gubment healthcare.

Fox News pundits caught on tape talking shit about Palin.

It just got easier for anyone close to you to monitor all of your computer actions.  But it’s marketed as an anti-porn device so it’s all cool, right?

According to this, Germany is at a very low risk or terrorist attacks.

Glenn Beck is attacking CREDO for petitioning Discovery Communications to not carry Sarah Palin’s reality show.  Sign this petition if you’d like to tell him to Fuck himself.

Myspace has now officially dropped it’s label as a social networking site and now claims to be an entertainment portal.  Oh, and they’re actively feeding users directly to Facebook too.

35,000 images saved from TSA strip search scanners have been leaked.  It’s a good thing they kept their promise about not saving any of those pictures.

A followup to the blogger that refused to be scanned or have his genitals fondled by the TSA.  Watch as the TSA tries to put Newspeak to work and weasel out of it all.

You know, I’d think the Tea Partiers would be up in arms over the shit that “Obama’s Big Gubment TSA” has been doing to the rights of American citizens.  Of course that’s expecting them to think for themselves without prodding from their astroturfing masters.  Where’s a horde of Real Libertarians when you need them?

 If you’re flying on Nov. 24th and haven’t had any action lately, you can always take part in the National Opt-out Protest.  By opting out of a digital strip search, you’re guaranteed a thorough genital groping from a stranger.  I encourage anyone undergoing the “enhanced pat-down procedure” to moan loudly and quiver the entire time.

More Reasons to hate the TSA. 

Reason TV gives us a vision of the future of air travel:

Speaking of radiation dangers, cell phones still cause cancer.  We just don’t worry about it anymore.

Republicans have assured a foreign power that they’ll keep the uppity black man and his administration in their place.  Nice to know they’re working with foreign powers to undermine our government.  Didn’t they call that kind of thing “Treason” back in the good ole days?

The Tea Partiers think they have free will and influence.  Isn’t that cute?

Fox Nation hates Sitting Bull.  In all fairness, he kinda got in the way of all that “White Culture” that makes Real ‘Murika so great.

Proof that America’s leading export is now Weapons-Grade Stupidity.  Many thanks to Lady B for sharing this tale of horror with me.  

I don’t know if this is real or not, but it could explain this country’s steadfast march into The New Dark Ages.

 Finally.  A Republican candidate that embodies the concerns of Real ‘Murikans!  I think it’s safe to say this guy is pro “White Culture”.

Newly elected Republican candidate that railed against “Obamacare” gets pissed over having to wait for his government supplied healthcare and even bitches that he can’t buy into some sort of public option in the meantime.  You might want to hold onto this one for when he goes on Fox News bitching about the freeloading peasants that demand a public option.

On a lighter note, the porn industry finally decided to nail their #1 demographic.  You’d think they’d have done this before.

“The dominant culture is destroying our planet…”  Derrick Jensen talks about how to rethink Green Resistance Culture and the fact that our planet is actively being killed out from under us.

Here’s a link to Derrick Jensen’s new book Resistance Against Empire on Google books.  It’s no match for reading the book in real book format, but it’s free.

Anti socialist Libertarian get’s the wake-up call of a lifetime when bad health kicks him in the colon.  Turns out socialism can save your life when you aren’t rich.

Yet Rand Paul continues to give the reach-around to Corporations that value profits over human life.

Tired of seeing law abiding citizens being subjected to nanny state strip search scanners by the TSA?  Here’s a way to fight back.

Could the new bipartisan government be a planned ploy put in place by The Powers That Be?  It’s enough to make you think there’s a reason why Obama talks progressive, yet eagerly caves in to the far right.  Puppet shows all up in this bitch!

Obama decides the internet needs government oversight.  The funny thing is Joe Barton is perfectly fine with the possible Big Government implications.  Surprised? If so, see the link above this one.

Still skeptical?  Check out Tex Shelters, telling it like it is.

Doctors say TSA digital strip-search machines will cause cancer.  So air travelers now have a choice between carcinogenic strip search or getting their balls/breasts fondled by a power-hungry douchebag in a uniform.

Add another pilot to the list of pilots that don’t like backscatter scanner. 

Turns out the Free Market might put some heat on the TSA and their digital strip search scans.  With bonus “Then he patted down the boy in the open security area, using the backside of his hands to check his genital area” goodness.  Judging from the comments at the foot of this article, the Tea Party will be outraged over “Obama’s TSA” in 3…2…1…

Evidentlly tattoos are now seen as “suspicious behavior” by Delta Airlines and nanny state enabling passengers. 

This man actually had the balls to stand up to the TSA.  I’m sure this isn’t the last we’ll hear about this guy.  Whether the suit against him gets national media attention or whether he turns up mysteriously dead in a ditch, he’s still a hero all the same.

Fox News employees speak out about the network’s extreme bias. 

Ted Koppel reminds us of when news used to actually be news.
