What does a fish feel on a hook in the ocean... ?

organican, thank you for this evocative post.

Animal lover?

Catching and releasing a fish of the wrong type when one is fishing for subsistence is somewhat understandable. But, catching and releasing a fish for sport is nothing short of animal cruelty. In my opinion.

House Now Has The Votes To End Government Shutdown, But Boehner Won't Allow Vote

WASHINGTON -- Less than two days after the government shut down, there are more than 17 Republicans who say they're ready to pass a bill to fund the government with no strings attached.

If all 200 Democrats stick together and team up with those Republicans, they have the votes for passage

Predictable?

The Storm Troopers, who follow orders to dispurse the non-voilent 'Occupiers', are now having their pensions stolen, by those same masters.

My Thank You Letter to the Republicans

Dear Republicans,

Denial of Service

Within the the "Deep Web" llves a community that causes lots of problems for internet users, world wide. Here is a question that needs asking - "Is someone or some organization using the Deep Web as a place to launch attacks for "denial of services" on sites that offer the ACA? The Deep Web is where the majority of spam, hackers and others hide activities like this.

I love Christ Hayes -- but...

Chris uses words like "occlude", etc. He is absolutely spot on (in terms of ideas) but sometimes not so good in terms of vocabulary. (He uses occasionally a vocabulary that many viewers cannot understand. He should pay his assistants 10 dollars every time he uses a moderately difficult word.)

Once again, I really, really love his presentations. But tonight, e.g., he used the word: "Tag'-a-log" (emphasis on the first syllable), and from my childhood in Hawaii the word for the language in the Phillipines is "Ta-ga'-log."

Slogans / Bumper Stickers - what are your ideas for new memes?

The right is great at creating short phrases that lead people towards derangement. What are some memes that will lead people towards the truth?

To get started, I think we should start referring to

Anti-law Republicans.

Govt Shutdown: Obama whines to Wall St to have them put pressure on Republicans.

and that good people is what is called the power behind the throne

"The Saddest Thing Is This Won't Be Breaking News"

Thom plus logo As the world burns, and more and more fossil fuels are being used every day planet-wide, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels passed 416 ppm this week at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii. In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.
