Rick Perry Backtracks on “Heart” comment – Rick Perry faced backlash over his comments in the last debate that his opponents lacked heart over immigration issues. Perry is now backtracking on that comment. It’s quite obvious to be a successful, card-carrying member of the Republican Party, you HAVE to show you’re a heartless son-of-a-bitch. Hence the correction from Perry that he’s more Dick Cheney than Jimmy Carter on the heart issue.
EPA Rumored for Massive Expansion - A right-wing website posted news this week that the EPA was about to undergo a massive expansion, increasing by 230,000 employees. Of course Fox (or Faux) News then picked it up, because of course if you see it on the internet, and it’s says bad things about the government, it must be true. Unless it’s not. The EPA now only has about 17,000 employees, so you’d think there might be a smidge of journalistic investigation before going with a story like this. That is, if you were actually interested in the truth. Faux News doesn’t roll that way.
EPA Cut Corners on Climate Ruling!! - What the hell, while the media is spreading sensationalistic lies about our evil, evil government, why not another one? From the headlines you’re seeing, just like the total BS “Climategate”, you’d think there was some conspiracy climate
idiots skeptics could get behind. I have no doubt climate idiots skeptics WILL start spouting this “news” as proof of some conspiracy. But whoever wrote the headline and/or story obviously was just trying to rile these idiots skeptics up with this headline. JUST as with “Climategate”, the SCIENCE behind the story is NOT in question. It’s just some stupid administrative thing that somehow makes it to front page news on some websites? “Cutting corners” means the science behind this EPA report ONLY went through review by 12 expert scientists. Considering to make it into the peer-reviewed, scientific literature, you typically only go through 2 to 4 reviewers, that’s a pretty damned robust scientific review. But yet, the media, and the right-wing climate idiots skeptics seem to think there’s a story here??
Climate Scientists Wrong – What the hell, how about some more climate news? It turns out the climate
idiots skeptics were right!!! Climate scientists HAVE indeed gotten the story of impending climate change wrong!! But unfortunately for climate idiots skeptics, we’ve UNDERESTIMATED how fast things are changing, not overestimated.
Reebok hit with $25 million fine for deceptive advertising – Reebok has agreed to refund $25 million to customers who bought shoes referred to in an ad campaign as ”a better way to a better butt”. Frankly, it should probably be the buyers of those shoes who are fined for being stupid enough to think that buying this sneaker would cancel out all the beer and donuts they ate.
Wisconsin 24, Nebraska 14 - This is my prediction for my beloved Huskers come Saturday. Well, actually, I’d have predicted something more like Wisconsin 38, Nebraska 28, in more of a high-scoring affair. But, my subconcious said otherwise. I had a dream last night where I was watching the game (please don’t provide commentary on the psychology of this!!). Wisconsin was ahead 14-7 going into the fourth quarter. Wisconsin was driving to score again, but a pass into the end zone was tipped, and Nebraska ran it back 100 yards to tie the game!! Woo-hoo! But Alas, Wisconsin prevailed 24-14 with 2 late scores. Oh…and also look for a tornado to hit the stadium at halftime, as that was in my dream (all my dreams have tornados). If this all comes true Saturday, I’m quitting my job and moving to Vegas.
