America, We Have A Problem!

I just ran across a couple of shocking stats, especially when combined: Congressional approval ratings dropped to a then-record-low 10% in 2012. Nonetheless, 90% of the representatives in the House of Representatives were re-elected. America! Why you haz so dumb? In all seriousness, here’s the good news: the US somehow realizes that Congress is broken. But […]

Al Gore On Corruption In Politics & Media

I just read a wonderful article about and interview with Al Gore on POLITICO. Worth your time, I believe. Al Gore is such an excellent communicator. One of the best out there on the topic of global climate change. However, if you aren’t drawn to read the full thing, here are some key excerpts from the interview part picked out […]

US Map Of Where No One Lives

Curious where in the US no one lives? Here are some maps on just that: As the creator over at mapsbynik writes: A Block is the smallest area unit used by the U.S. Census Bureau for tabulating statistics. As of the 2010 census, the United States consists of 11,078,300 Census Blocks. Of them, 4,871,270 blocks totaling 4.61 […]

Oligarchy, We Are

Via DailyKos: We like to assert that Daily Kos is a reality-based community. At the very least we surely do not deny science. A new study appearing at Princeton’s website may test these assumptions for some of us here. For others, it will be grim vindication of what we already know: the United States of America is […]

Dogs Learn To Drive Cars, Really (VIDEO)

This is pretty awesome. Of course, it’s fun to watch dogs driving cars, but it’s also cool because the purpose of this dog driving course, conducted by a charity in New Zealand, is to get more people comfortable with the idea that rescue dogs are intelligent, can be trained, and are worthy of adoption. I […]

Hilarious Daily Show Clip On Fracking (VIDEO)

This is absolutely hilarious… but also absolutely sad. Most of what is in this Daily Show fracking video is no joke at all. The ramifications from fracking that are highlighted here are real — even the earthquakes. And Chevron’s attempt to pacify a community that had just seen an explosion that killed one of its […]

Fox News Has Issue With Charts… & Reality

Via Daily Kos: As you may have seen, yesterday Fox offered up this hilariously misleading chart of Obamacare’s enrollment progress: The numbers on that chart said 6 million and 7 million, but visually, it was pure gibberish. According to the height of the bars, the ratio was actually 3:8. Making it worse, there wasn’t even a scale. […]

Republican "Hipster" Commercials & Two Great Parodies (Videos)

There’s a decent chance you’ve seen the ridiculous “young Republican” or “Republican hipster” commercials that came out on March 16. They’re so ridiculous that I think most of us thought they were parodies. Apparently, not. Of course, parodies have since been made. Below are the original commercials in case you missed them (first two), followed […]

Scott Brown Talks Shit About Obamacare To Wrong Republican

Originally published on Daily Kos. Scott Brown is as hapless a Senate candidate in New Hampshire as he was in Massachusetts. Even in a crowd of friendly fellow Republicans, he can’t seem to keep his foot out of his mouth, particularly when it comes to Obamacare. Brown found that out on Saturday, when he stopped by […]

Giraffe Kisses Maintenance Worker Dying From Cancer

Beautiful. I love giraffes. Apparently, a maintenance worker at Rotterdam’s Diergaarde Blijdorp zoo is dying from cancer. He requested that he be brought to the zoo to pay a last visit to some kind giraffes. “Heart-breaking pictures have emerged of the moment a giraffe said goodbye to a terminally ill zoo worker, who had spent most of […]
