Just another SU refugee. Thanks so much to all who are involved in setting this up.

Good and hopefully true stories
Help some women go to Africa and represent the USA.

Fly, guy.
I can post this here because I know no one will ever read it. We have officially failed as parents. We have let our 14-year-old bully and blackmail us into letting her do something that will be very deleterious to her education and probably her health as well. I guess we can never have any influence on her again unless she allows it.

Oh well, I guess we gave it a try anyway. I'm sorry, world, for the entitled, spoiled brat that my child has become and will probably always be.
From the page: "the church didn’t call the cops on the child molester – a minister who has since been convicted – but did call the cops on the member who asked questions about it."
From the page: "I could never get anyone to believe the story."
From the page: "The Venus Project offers a comprehensive plan for social reclamation in which human beings, technology and nature will be able to coexist in a long term, sustainable state of dynamic equilibrium"

We say this all the time.

Thanks Rrrick!
Thanks Obama!

Good lord I laughed until it hurt.

Oh boy oh boy oh boy. Is gloating bad karma? Because I might use my karma all up tomorrow.
From the page:
Did you know you can see the International Space Station from your house? As the third brightest object in the sky, after the sun and moon, the space station is easy to see if you know where and when to look for it.
From the page:
“I think that in 2012, this is the most important election in the history of the United States,” said Meat Loaf, singer of the hit power ballad, I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That). ”Because there has storm clouds come over the United States. There is thunder storms over Europe. There are hail storms, and I mean major hail storms, in the Middle East. There are storms brewing through China, through Asia, through everywhere.”

He went on, “And there’s only one man that on the other night when Pres. Barack Obama, God bless him, said to Mitt Romney, ‘The Cold War is over.’ I have never heard such a thing in my life. The man needs to understand Putin and Russia.”

If this is a metaphor, it's the worst, most tortured metaphor since Edward Bulwer-Lytton. And his politics are even worse than that.

From the page:
How do I decide if prosecution is warranted? And, by the way, how does a woman who qualifies for one of these exceptions go about availing herself of the exception? Are we going to take the pregnant woman’s word for it that she was raped (somehow I suspect that the answer to this question will be “no”)? Is there going to be a form that she has to fill out? Will she be placed under oath? Will there be post-abortion investigations by the police to ensure that she was truthful when she said that she was raped? If we aren’t going to just take her word for it, what will be the mechanism for fact finding we will use?
Volume 40. 40!

Damn that man lies more than a rug. He lies like a ... like a ... lie machine.
From the page:
Every time you say “I oppose a woman’s right to abortion, even in cases of rape,” what you’re also saying is “I believe that a man who rapes a woman has more of a right to control a woman’s body and life than that woman does.”

Warning: very graphic, trigger-full satire.

Binders full of women? Mckayla’s not impressed.

I wonder if M had an epiphany at this point, something like, "Wow, these people that I'm siding with haven't got two brain cells to rub together! I wonder what other things that they've told me are completely wrong?"
From the page:
"We have seen a similar public sentiment in the past, but this time it is quite unique," he said. "This case has provided a catharsis of the masses for all the grievances that have been building up for years."

Let's see if we can make the jump from this to realizing that fundamentalism/extremism is always unacceptable.

I'm not holding my breath though.
From the page:
Nobel Prize winner Amarty Sen argues that “perhaps there is no clearer route to economic development, political stability, and ultimately peace, than education.”

And lots of other good stuff.
If these Republicans were my children, I would be forced to take away all their privileges and ground them. Permanently.

Best comment from the page: "Paul Ryan's eyes belong in a fish market."
