Truth. Can You Handle It?

i can handle the truthDavid Brooks finally dropped the bomb on the GOP:

"The members of this movement do not accept the legitimacy of scholars and intellectual authorities. A thousand impartial experts may tell them that a default on the debt would have calamitous effects, far worse than raising tax revenues a bit. But the members of this movement refuse to believe it."


The GOP is willing to tank the global economy just to make the rich even richer. The rich will be fine when the whole economic shootin' match caves in but you'll be in the deepest of doo-doo. You understand this, right?


Cutting just one, that's ONE, tax loophole for only 25, that's TWENTY-FIVE, Americans would result in $40 billions in savings over ten years.


Did you know that there are more black men in prison today than there were black male slaves before the Civil War? Someone still bears a grudge.


Texas Governor Rick Perry, a potential presidential candidate, is being lauded for the way he handled his state's budget. Impressive, until you look behind the curtain and see it's all smoke and mirrors. (In a nutshell, he's doubled the state's debt over the past ten years, from $14 billion to $34 billion.)


The government recently announced that terrorists may be surgically implanting explosives into their bodies.

What exactly do they expect us, the general public, to do with this information? Randomly search fellow passengers for scars or bloody seepages? I don't know who's behind this stupid announcement but it's clearly just another ploy to shake the confidence of the sheeple again. Thanks loads, you faceless sadist.


Never in the history of the world has a newspaper had to shutter its doors because it had become so hopelessly corrupt. Of course, only the little people are hurt by this. The executives will be fine. Way to go, Rupert.


Finally, I found this today on the Google. It's by an Uzbekistanian cartoonist named Makhmud Eshonkulov and I LIKE it!

john boehner"We're going to have a relentless focus on creating jobs." - John Boehner, February 10, 2011.

The following is #50 in a list of accomplishments by the GOP since they gained control of the House in 2011. None have yet to result in one, single new job.

(50) 7-8-2011: Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's bright idea is to close tax loopholes.... and then give the accumulated monies back to the rich in the form of reduced taxes. That's our little non-job-makers!

Fox News Lies!And what manner of lie is Fox News spewing today? The rotten twats edited the president's Twitter-palooza to make it appear he was dodging John Boehner's question about jobs.
