Hey, you should read TriSec's brilliant post from yesterday if you haven't.


Here's a couple of things that bothered me from the little bits of news I tried not to watch but found myself raging at. I thought pictures said it better.

Well good morning, bitches and bastards! As well as faggots, queers, spics, wetbacks, hook-nosed Jesus killers, japs, krauts, canucks, surrender-monkeys, redskins, chinks, crackers, dagos, wops, yankees, niggers, camel-fuckers, gooks, cossacks, coons, and cunts.

Have I got your attention now? Good! That was the point.

Once again its Comic Con weekend. The weekend where fangirls and boys dream of being in San Diego to revel in the fun and geekery.

Last year, working with Nerdist Industries and Hot Topic, Her Universe started the "Geek Couture" Fashion Show. Its an awesome show that helps showcase designers in world of geek fashion. You will not see Michael Kors or Vivienne Westwood on this runway.

Just work harder!
Author: Raine    Date: 07/09/2015 13:13:30

Oh John Ellis….
“My aspiration for the country and I believe we can achieve it, is 4 percent growth as far as the eye can see. Which means we have to be a lot more productive, workforce participation has to rise from its all-time modern lows. It means that people need to work longer hours” and, through their productivity, gain more income for their families. That's the only way we're going to get out of this rut that we're in.”

Demonizing the Poor
Author: BobR    Date: 2015-07-08 10:12:05

The human psyche is a strange beast. When we hear about a particular person going through a hard time, we are likely to open our hearts and wallets to help. People with little to give will share when they encounter a person in need. However, when it's not a particular person, but instead a nameless faceless group of people, the reaction ranges from indifference, to relief it's not oneself, to more hard-hearted "should have planned better" or "that's what you get when you [a-b-c]". This ranges from the family whose house gets demolished in a tornado (outpouring of help) to an entire city demolished by a hurricane (freeloaders).

What about those in chronic need? They are often demonized by those who have only a handful more. In our unbalanced economy, as more and more money flows uphill to the wealthiest, those who used to live modest comfortable lives are now barely squeaking by paycheck to paycheck. Despite historically low taxes, they feel helpless and victimized, and feel like their taxes are going to give a "free ride" to those who don't deserve it. That is actually true, but it's not going to the people they think. I have seen too many memes and posts online about tax dollars spent on the poor when our country's solvency may be at risk.

When it comes to the U.S budget, the numbers are a little hard to visualize for most people. Our current federal budget is around $6.2T. That's $6200 Billion. How much of that goes to those at the bottom of the economic pyramid?

Ask A Vet
Author: TriSec    Date: 07/07/2015 09:43:04

Good Morning. Back to a regular schedule.

Today is our 383rd day back in Iraq.

There have been no new American casualties.

We find this morning's Cost of War passing through:

$ 1, 625, 286, 350, 000 .00


It's actually been fairly quiet, so we're getting towards the bottom of my barrel of stories. Some of these are older, but hopefully still relevant.

Happy 5th of July

The Quiet day. What?

Sorry, my hears are still ringing from all the explosions last night.

Only in 'Merica do we celebrate by destroying our own stuff. Win a war; blow shit up. Win a sporting event; riot and set fires. Sometimes these fires are words that can be as volatile as a gasoline fire.

While running through my Book of Faces Newsfeed the other day I spotted this - The 16 Most American Shirts that Ever America'd
