Here is number nine:

9. You

Charges: You believe in freedom of speech, until someone says something that offends you. You suddenly give a damn about border integrity, because the automated voice system at your pharmacy asked you to press 9 for Spanish. You cling to every scrap of bullshit you can find to support your ludicrous belief system, and reject all empirical evidence to the contrary. You know the difference between patriotism and nationalism — it’s nationalism when foreigners do it. You hate anyone who seems smarter than you. You care more about zygotes than actual people. You love to blame people for their misfortunes, even if it means screwing yourself over. You still think Republicans favor limited government. Your knowledge of politics and government are dwarfed by your concern for Britney Spears’ children. You think buying Chinese goods stimulates our economy. You think you’re going to get universal health care. You tolerate the phrase “enhanced interrogation techniques.” You think the government is actually trying to improve education. You think watching CNN makes you smarter. You think two parties is enough. You can’t spell. You think $9 trillion in debt is manageable. You believe in an afterlife for the sole reason that you don’t want to die. You think lowering taxes raises revenue. You think the economy’s doing well. You’re an idiot.

Exhibit A: You couldn’t get enough Anna Nicole Smith coverage.

Sentence: A gradual decline into abject poverty as you continue to vote against your own self-interest. Death by an easily treated disorder that your health insurance doesn’t cover. You deserve it, chump.

 

A really telling post and absolutely spot on.  Check out the rest of the list here.

Your Christmas is Most Like: How the Grinch Stole Christmas


You can’t really get into the Christmas spirit…
But it usually gets to you by the end of the holiday.

Have you seen my City?

So you wanted to know what Mrdeadworry’s city looks like.  Well have no fear.  For now you can check out my city.  Yes I have my very own city – check it out at Mrdeadworry – MyMiniCity.  It is more of a hovel than a city but there it is for all to see.

And, what kind of reader are you?

I like this guy: Pat Condell. Not afraid to say what religion is really about and the people that try to shove it down our throats thinking we need to be saved or taught how to live our lives like they do, in there own putrid ignorance and self serving nationalism. I am damn sick of their lies (yeh we all know who they are), greed and ignorance of science and truth. Yes George Orwell would be proud of our march to the future he so cleverly wrote about and tried to warn us about. Sickening and worrisome, for those of us who relish in liberty, science, education and freedom from dogma, this new world order that our fearless leaders are marching us to like the lemmings we have become.

I really can not wait for KDE4 and all its improvements. Check this video out from Francis Giannaros about the upcoming KDE4. He has many other examples on his site of KDE4 so have a gander.  Hat tip to /home/liguidat.
