The Coffee Party Astroturf Movement

Photo by LimonadaLook closely everyone… it isn’t real grass roots, it is astroturf!!!  That’s right, the coffee party movement that you’ve probably heard spouted about in the media isn’t really a movement with a lot of commonality in the teaparty movement.  In fact, Left Coast Rebel has uncovered that many of the founders have their roots in some rather scary anti-capitalist movements.  I highly recommend checking out that link, Rebel has been keeping it updated with all the latest finds.

I’m not sure about anyone else, but this coffee movement hasn’t been going long and it already seems quite stale. I can’t help but see the astroturfed members of it as being little more than bitter… Sorry, I couldn’t resist. Calling them coffeebaggers just doesn’t work.

Daylight Stupidity Time

I just realized, it’s that time of year…  It’s time to cut an inch off our blankets and sew it to the other end so it is longer…  That’s right, it’s time for Daylight Saving Time!  The most futile and pointless of activities we are forced to do twice a year in order to save our precious supply of whale oil.  But we also get the side benefits of increased traffic accidents, increased residential energy usage, and plenty of issues for kids.  Oh, I can’t wait, this is so worth it!

Healthcare Debacle Summary

I honestly have no idea where this started, but I’ve seen it a couple places across the net now. It seems to be the best summary out there on where we are on this health care debacle and how we got there.

Republicans: Hey guys, since it’s May 2009, here’s a bunch of our ideas on health care reform.
Democrats to Republicans: La La La We can’t hear you.
Democrats to the public: Those Republicans have no ideas.
