The article talks how Sulzberger “never ordered an article to be printed or deleted from the news columns of his paper.” One of the most interesting tidbits in the article was […]
Fox News out did itself yesterday and not in a good way.
Hundreds of thousands of Americans watched a man shoot himself in the head live on television on Friday as Fox News broadcast the final moments of a car chase in Arizona.
The cable news channel was playing live footage of the pursuit when the suspect leapt out of his car and began running away down a dirt track.
As producers and viewers watched, the man staggered away from his vehicle, ran a short distance into the grass and then produced a gun.
Shephard Smith, Fox News’s afternoon anchor, was providing a running commentary as the suspect lurched away from the vehicle and viewers could hear his producers gasping in horror as the man shot himself.
Mr Smith shouted “get off it, get off it” as it became clear the man intended to kill himself but the station did not cut away in time and broadcast the suspect crumpling to the ground.
With the Republican base already shrinking, you know as the United States starts turning different shades of brown, there is more bad news for the GOP.
For generations of Americans, it was a given that children would live longer than their parents.

State Representative John Atkins (Asshat-Millsboro), never one to shy away from controversy, is at it again. This time his stupidity endangered the life of his son.

If I learned anything over this primary election, when it comes to politics, know one knows nothing. The more one pretends to know, it becomes apparent that they know very little. When politicians, political Insiders or bloggers start thinking their shit don’t smell, it’s best they remember the line from Shakespeare’s As You Like It:
The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.
Lindsay Graham continues to narrate the demise of the Republican Party. “If I were Obama I’d be nervous about the economy, but if I were Romney I’d be nervous about demographics,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told The Hill on Tuesday. “The economic condition of the nation cries out for a change in leadership, but when […]
1. Always and inevitably everyone underestimates the number of stupid individuals in circulation.
2. The probability that a certain person (will) be stupid is independent of any other characteristic of that person.
3. A stupid person is a person who causes losses to another person or to a group of persons while himself deriving no gain and even possibly incurring losses.
4. Non-stupid people always underestimate the damaging power of stupid individuals. In particular non-stupid people constantly forget that at all times and places and under any circumstances to deal and/or associate with stupid people always turns out to be a costly mistake.
5. A stupid person is the most dangerous type of person.
Thank goodness for August. If the dog days didn’t cool down, we probably would have had the hottest summer on record. As it was, Delaware experienced our third warmest summer on record since 1895. I’m glad that the Democrats are finally beginning to campaign on effects of climate change on our world. Summer 2012 officially […]
