Criminal Justice Degree Gone to Waste: The Wrongly Imprisoned

By Greg Voakes | Related entries in Crazy, General Politics, Homeland Security

At what point does the system fail? Is it possible to pinpoint the time when a criminal justice degree becomes a total abortion, leading to the arrest and conviction of innocent people? Thousands of people are wrongly convicted each year, mostly because America is a country full of poor people who can’t afford $400/hr+ lawyers […]

San Francisco Values – Hamburger Edition

By mw | Related entries in Bad Decisions, California, Civil Liberties, Comedy, Crazy, Left, Liberalism

My hometown supervisors again set up The City for national ridicule and general hilarity, this time with the ban on Mcdonald’s Happy Meal toys. I guess it is a good thing that in these trying times we can offer ourselves up to the rest of the nation as civic clowns to help lighten the national mood.

I fully understand that – in the most progressive major city with the most progressive governing body in the country – it is impossible for them to resist the temptation to occasionally succumb to their core belief that no one is capable of making decisions for themselves or their family without their benevolent dictates guiding forcing us in the right direction. But… when even the Daily Show is pointing and laughing – you’d think our Supes might get a clue.

Don’t be evil.

I am now using a Droid phone. My whole life is on this device. My “real” email accounts and my “fake” ones – they’re all Gmail accounts and linked on the Gmail app. My phone numbers, credit card information and my real name. Facebook , blogs and tweets. It’s all conveniently tied together and linked […]

Can We Ever Trust John Edwards Again?

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, Crazy, Edwards, History, Obama

My answer? Ummm…no. Well, at least with anything political. I’d trust him to borrow a garden hose, but that’s about it. Because if even one tenth of what’s in the new book ‘Game Change’ is true about Edwards (and his wife) it would be enough. The book paints Edwards as a reckless opportunist, an ego […]

Anti-Obama Billboard Right Outside Of Kansas City

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, Crazy, Obama

What to say to this? Well, I’ll give it a try… Looks like 1st Amendment rights are alive and well if folks can create a billboard that sits on one of the most well traveled highways in the country and suggest Obama is a communist and make a quasi-revolutionary call. I mean…do they not see […]

There’s A Birther Infomercial?

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, Crazy, Obama, Republicans, Video

Why yes…yes there is. And all they’re asking you to do is give them $30 so they can send all 50 state attorney generals a fax demanding Obama show his birth certificate. Fun fact: this is actually running on a CBS affiliate in Texas and other locales across the country. In related news, if you […]

A Second Revolution?

By Jacob | Related entries in Constitution, Crazy

I’ve found the base camp of crazy. Have a look: At the time that I am writing this, at least 20 – 30% of Americans understand thus far, know the true nature of President Obama, and the steps he is now taking to destroy freedom.  [...]  A real Second American Revolution is now on the […]

Cloud (making) Ships

By Jacob | Related entries in Cool, Crazy, Environment

Everyone has one. The one piece of technology that makes it official for you that you’re living in the future. Whether it’s a Roomba vacuum, Skype, the iPhone or something else – there’s something floating around in your mind that, when you see it in real life, you’ll know you’ve reached the future. For me […]

Sears Tower Renamed Willis Tower After London Firm

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Crazy, History, Illinois

WTF? Obviously I don’t take part in jingoistic, populism often, but this just strikes me as just plain unamerican. From NY Times: In a sentimental gesture from a no-nonsense kind of guy, Jory Spears lifted his camera phone on Friday in a somber salute to this city’s beloved Sears Tower. “The Sears Tower has some […]

I Love Alan Keyes

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, Crazy, Video

I say that with all sincerity because where would I be without clips like this? Obviously I’m putting aside his economic views, because many of you would agree with those, but as for most of the rest of it…Keyes is a living, breathing example of why 3rd party candidates aren’t allowed into serious presidential debates.
