In my search to find stupid things and stupid people doing stupid things, I have found a very stupid thing and I have no doubt in my mind that someone stupid will try this.
Found on Twitter via Fleshlight via SpikeTV. If anyone tries to make one and uses it, that man deserves to get his dick ripped off.
Increasing the pay and bargaining power of average working people. We’ll stop efforts to destroy unions and collective bargaining rights. Protect workers who try to form unions from being fired. Make it easier for workers to form unions through simple up-or-down votes at the workplace.
Requiring America’s super-rich to pay their fair share. Increase top marginal tax rates and the number of tax brackets at the top. Treat income from capital gains the same as ordinary income. Restore the estate tax. Revoke the citizenship of anyone found to be sheltering income abroad.
Protecting and expanding government programs vital to the working middle class and the poor. These include Social Security, K-12 education, Pell Grants for disadvantaged students, public transportation, Medicare and Medicaid, and the Earned Income Tax Credit.
Ending corporate welfare and cutting military outlays. Trim defense spending. End special tax subsidies for specific corporations or industries - at both state and federal levels. Cut agricultural subsidies.
Saving Social Security while making it more progressive. Exempt the first $20,000 of income from Social Security taxes. Make up the difference - and any need for additional Social Security revenues - by raising the ceiling on income subject to the Social Security payroll tax.
Ending Wall Street’s dominance of the economy and preventing any future taxpayer-funded bailout. Break up Wall Street’s largest banks and put a cap their size. Link pay on the Street to long-term profits rather than short-term speculation. Subject all financial transactions to a one-tenth of one percent transactions tax.
Fully enforcing regulations that protect workers, consumers, small investors, and the environment. Raise penalties on corporations that violate them. Expand enforcement staffs. Provide more private rights of action.
Providing affordable health care to all Americans. The new health law isn’t enough. We’ll fight for a single payer - making Medicare available to all. End fee-for-service and create “accountable-care” organizations that focus on healthy outcomes.
Slowing and eventually reversing climate change. We’ll fight to limit carbon emissions. Impose a ceiling on emissions or a carbon tax on polluters. Return the revenues from these to the American people, in the form of tax cuts for the working middle class.
Getting big money out of politics. We’ll fight to appoint Supreme Court justices who will overrule Citizens United v. FEC. Require full disclosure of all contributions for or against any candidate. Provide full public financing for all presidential, gubernatorial, and legislative candidates in all general elections.
Old-school Nickelodeon fans, your day has come - the network has announced that beginning this fall, TeenNick will air 1990s programming favorites including Clarissa Explains It All, All That, Rugrats, and Kenan & Kel!
There is one word that causes me to break into song – “Ducktales!” Did you finish singing the rest of it? Like many of you, I was glued to the television watching the Disney Afternoon when younger. There were so many great shows (with great theme songs – “Spin it!”). Fortunately for many fans (including me), there is an artist with Disney Design Group who brought his love of the Disney Afternoon to a new series of Vinylmation figures.
The fictional group Muslim Education Action Center Trust, which duped Ron Schiller of NPR into talking candidly about his views on the tea party, also met with an executive at PBS.
PBS spokeswoman Anne Bentley confirmed Wednesday that, like NPR, the public television station was contacted by fake donors, but after the group’s credentials could not be confirmed, PBS did not follow up with the group.
Looks to me like the only thing NPR is guilty of is being suckered.
Charlie Sheen, is all over the news this week because he’s a celebrity drug addict. Justin Bieber was all over the news for 2 days this week because he cut his hair. While Andrew Wilfahrt 31, Brian Tabada 21, Rudolph Hizon 22, Chauncy Mays 25, Christopher Stark 22, Kristopher Gould 25, David Fahey 23 are all soldiers who gave their lives this week with no media mention. Honor THEM by re-posting RIP Lads.
Rex Ryan and his staff have a lot riding on the outcome of the NFL’s labor showdown in Washington, D.C. If it ends with a lockout, the New York Jets’ coaches will get hit with a 25 percent pay cut, starting almost immediately — and that doesn’t sit well with the president of the NFL Coaches Association.
