It Needed To Be Said

Another day, another mass shooting.

Rather than play another round of White Terrorist Bingo, I’ll just say that President Obama speaks for me on the subject:

The Hobby Lobby Rake Take

SCOTUS majority in Hobby Lobby decision
OK, so it’s with golf clubs – you get the idea.

As for how absurd the decision was, I’ll outsource this one to John Oliver:

Got to love that GOTea outreach!

Risen Like A Phoenix. A Really, Really Stupid Phoenix.

Just when I’d sworn off reading anything concerning anybody with the last name Palin, here comes TBogg to draw me back in:

“When we last saw Sarah she was making announcements on her ShoutyFace page about making announcements on her ShoutyFace page about doin’ some heavy vettin’, some hard homeworkin’ , and being very discernmental about the folks she wants her fans to vote for,  if the good Lord is willin’ and the Hoverounds start up.

But is that enough Sarah Palin for God’s Chosen Country?

Actually, it’s probably too much, but tough titties America, because Sarah Palin is going to get her own teevee network channel called Rogue TV and it will be in your cable box in your house and there is nothing you can do about it.”

The Boggster is in rare form as he theorizes about a channel lineup:

“And what kind of delightful programming  might we expect on this new addition to the other eight-hundred channels you never watch??

  • ‘America’s Top Meth Chefs’
  • ‘The Big Bang Theory Behind The Circle K’
  • ‘So You Think Bristol Can’t Dance, Well Screw You, She Does Just Fine, C’Mere Sweetie, Don’t Listen To Them’
  • ‘How I Met Your Mother’ hosted by Glen Rice
  • ‘Dr., Who Knocked My Daughter Up This Time?’

Something like that…”

Do yourself a favor and go read the whole thing – it’s as thorough a takedown of Grifterella as you’ll ever see.  Also, how sad is this:

 (TLC’s parent company, Discovery Communications, is an investor in Tapp.)

Idiocracy was a documentary, evidently…

Be Careful What You Wish For

Small business owners are shocked, SHOCKED I TELL YOU, to discover the “business-friendly” GOP policies don’t include them:

Like many Charlotte-area small business owners, Doug Jones doesn’t know how to digest the N.C. General Assembly’s recent tax policy overhaul.

Even before he and his wife, Sophie, opened Pour Olive, a specialty oil and vinegar shop on East Boulevard, he believed the state’s tax code needed revisions that would make the state more attractive to corporations.

But he worries one of the legislature’s many policy changes – eliminating a $50,000 tax deduction that small business owners can take on their personal income tax returns – could negatively impact some small businesses.

State Sen. Bob Rucho cites cutting red tape and the legislature’s reducing the state’s progressive personal income tax to a flat 5.8 percent.

“We’ve been working diligently to help small businesses function more efficiently,” Rucho says.

As Reagan suckered the unions, so has the NCGOP suckered the small businessman.  And as a result, the race to the bottom continues unabated.
