I don't care what Alan Simpson said

(5) Comments | Posted August 27, 2010 | 4:59 PM

I don't mind Alan Simpson's foul mouth. I'm a grown up. I don't care that he refers to me and most Americans as the lesser people. Am I surprised a guy who was bequeathed a Senate seat from his father considers himself above those of us...

Hey Google, That's Bullsh*t

There's nothing more depressing than when a trusted friend breaks a promise. Particularly, when that friend is so massive that they have the ability to un-democratize the internet almost single-handedly and are not, in fact, your friend, but a multi-billion dollar corporation.

ADL vs. Mosque at Ground Zero? That's Bullsh*t

(183) Comments | Posted August 5, 2010 | 12:02 AM
