Up Northeast it's not "Snark" It's "Snaahk"

March 13, 2006

1. I didn’t read or watch any news this weekend. This must have been all over the news! Another possible case of mad cow in the US. — US, Japan officials meet after mad cow alert
2. Predatory lenders don’t like the new rules. — New Credit Card Minimums May Hurt Banks…could hurt profit at the nation’s card issuers — especially those that cater to borrowers with weaker credit. . . . “For some customers, the banks will have to reduce interest payments in order to keep them from defaulting…” — Oh, snap! How will we keep the indentured servants productive if they manage to crawl out of debt?
3. Feingold makes a vain effort to call OFFAL: to task. — Feingold Proposes Censuring President Bush — By way of response all Republicans say essentially the same thing as Bill Frist: “The signal that it sends, that there is in any way a lack of support for our commander in chief who is leading us with a bold vision in a way that is making our homeland safer, is wrong[.]”
4. They can’t help themselves. Actually, I guess they are helping themselves. — Push to Tighten Lobbying Rules Loses Strength — Apparently, there is …a growing sense among lawmakers of both parties that wholesale change may not be needed after all. — Feh. Fuck you too, lawmakers of both parties.
5. The Army is turning away applicants? — Military Shuns Many of Recruiting Age — So when we reinstate the draft, will it be enough to encourage my kids to get tattoos? Or should I have them gain weight as well?
6. Perhaps jealous of all the attention Iran gets for its nuclear ‘ambitions,’ NK points out they already got nukes. — North Korea: U.S. Is Preparing Invasion

    You know, for a guy that can’t be President, Feingold sure acts like he’s going to give it a run. To be honest, I like him more than any other nationally-recognized Dem at this point (which isn’t saying much).
    No wonder recruitment is up; the financial inducements are pretty sweet. Too bad you get nothing once they’ve finished with you–assuming you survive at all.

    I believe every American who currently has a tattoo should be drafted into a special ‘Tattoo Army’ to invade North Korea. Body paint has traditionally scared the shit out of the enemy, you know. Those Blue Guys From Gaul used to scare the shit out of the Roman Centurians.

    JR: anybody to the left of Leiberman looks good right about now by comparison. I agree Feingold is doing some good things, though, with limited success.

    Neil: under your regime would there be no way to save my kids from death by war?

    When you said “blue guys” I first though Blue Man Group. Then I thought of the Julie Taymor movie version of Titus based on the play by your namesake Will, and staring Anthony Hopkins. I only mention this because that was such a fucking great flick.

    Blue Man Group must be stopped! They hate our freedom!
