Love Gov

I just saw this on Stossel. Love Gov is a very well-produced, five-part Youtube comedy series that uses a Fatal Attraction-type boyfriend as a metaphor for big government. It makes big issues understandable for those who might not spend much time thinking about government, and it's funny for political junkies. Watch all of them.

14 All I need to know about government I learned in business. When I started out there were two people employed in manufacturing for every one government 'worker'.

They have now flipped those numbers. They hated manufacturing with a fucking vengeance. Clinton sold American workers jobs out to the Chinese in return for campaign contributions from Chinese waiters with thousand dollar checks. Now they want to flood the country with undocumented democrats while shits like Boehner and Mitch smile complacently.

I have had no party which has represented me since Reagan left office.

She bragged that she help found the Paul Robeson Center (never heard of it). And while I enjoy Mr. Robeson's singing, always resented the fact that many blacks immigrated to the soviet union because of him and died horrible deaths.

Anyway, out of curiosity I looked at the big election website. They have all these people endorsing candidates who are extremely rich. Why dont they pay some of these back salaries so there would be programming again? They shd be embarassed.

62 Repurposed content from the ONT:

I live in the Philadelphia suburbs, and as you may have heard, the Pope is visiting Philly this weekend.

I work in a printing shop, and this week a customer ordered 6000 souvenir Pope trading cards. You know, like baseball cards. He intends to sell them to the tourists.

The color printer that I was going to print them on had some problems, and I had to call a service technician twice. Meanwhile the clock was ticking. Needless to say, this was a very time-sensitive job.

Finally, on Thursday afternoon, I ran the job, and the guy who operated the cutting machine finished cutting them just before he left at 4:30 with the customer standing there waiting. It was a near-run thing.

The customer also had T-shirts made up elsewhere, and he gave one to each of us. He seemed to be satisfied with the cards.

Now, I'm not Catholic, and I'm certainly not a fan of this particular Pope. But a gift is a gift, and I thanked him and wished him luck selling his stuff.

I have no intention of going into the city this weekend to brave the crowds and traffic to see the Pope. I've laid in stocks of food, booze, and smokes, so I do not have to leave the house at all and can quietly hunker down.

At first I could not envision a scenario where I would ever wear the T-shirt. I figured that I would put it away in a drawer and forget about it.

But now I've decided to wear it today while mowing the lawn. It's likely that nobody will see it or notice. But if one person drives by and does a double take, it will be worth it. "Huh? Why is that guy wearing a Pope shirt but isn't downtown watching the Pope? Did he go into the city this morning just to buy a shirt, and then went back home to mow his lawn? WTF is up with that?"

I remember especially how there was a weekend program from some unctious lib-stic "from the Institute of Noetic Sciences"

I don't know what a noetic science is, although I have read definition after definition (and it appears to be the real-world application of buzz-words backed by grants and federal matching money), but it appeared to actualize itself by bitching about conservatives.

Eight people traveling. Arrive Prague, four bags. Wait another two hours three more bags. Got in at 1:30AM on next day without last bag.

Last bag does not arrive until two hours before wedding.

I am sorry. I miss the old days when people dressed to travel and your seat mate didn't smell of fvcking BO and the crew was polite.

I try to dress nicely (but comfortably) on trips because one, I have a modicum of pride, and two, I think the staff treats you better.

And if there's an incident at the airport you'll want to look good for the news cameras. Especially if you create the incident.

Hat and coat hooks. Used to be everywhere. Now you have to cram the hat down on the seat beside you.

My favorite was leaving my hat ('though I didn't know where) at a New Mexican restaurant in Tulsa. Months later, we went back, and there was my hat sitting on top of a big fake sagurro (sp? the ones that look like people with their arms out) cactus.

Just took a walk around the motel parking lot. Big Classic Cars gathering here. Old geezers all around, carefully wiping and dusting off their amazing vehicles. Beautiful machines.

I'll bite, close all the streets downtown so no one can go to work?

But why the roadster decided to walk to the store, I'll never know.

I was promised chaos today?!?!?



Anyone experiencing climate chaos today anywhere??

Posted by: Soothsayer, only 1 day left until Climate Chaos at September 26, 2015 10:18 AM (F1s01)



Sunny and in the 70s today. But it's just a ruse. I've been noticing that the days have been getting shorter. Just slightly each day and it's not as warm as it was in July. CLIMATE CHAOS!!!!!

I remember Pope John Paul II visiting Philly
back in the 80s. I was younger and maybe wasn't paying attention, but I
don't recall them making such a big honking deal about it.
Posted by: rickl at September 26, 2015 10:13 AM (sdi6R)

we can talk about the Pope, or we can talk about Hillary, Boehner, inflation, cost of medical care, what China is doing, illegal aliens, sharia law, domestic spying, betrayal of Israel, betrayal of Ukraine, betrayal of the Baltic states, destruction of the military through PC thought, VA abuse, NSA abuse, failure of the TSA, the selling of Congress to the highest bidders in a cartel, Dilma Rousseff being threatened with impeachment, a comedian being the front runner in the upcoming Nicaraguan elections, Polio like diseases being brought in by illegal aliens, ISIS terror cells, civil forfeiture...

THERE IS ONLY SO MUCH TIME IN THE DAY!

So, it is the Pope. Dammit, we would have loved to have touched on the other things, but we have to stay relevant.

206 I caught Stossel last night, and had my daughter watch them. She actually found them to as depressing as they are funny, but she probably still doesn't get some of the humor.

It's a great concept, even if its 40 years overdue, and is well done.
