Bob Herebert: What A TOOL

Bob Herebert's Had Just About Enough
of Being Muzzled By the New York Times

I am [leaving to write] a book called ‘Wounded Colossus’ about some of the great challenges facing the United States and will be part of a new, soon-to-be-announced effort to help bolster progressive journalism in the cause of a more generous and just America.
Bob Herbert's Had Enough
Fur Hat used just three words to describe this vainglorious asshat: What a tool.

10 girl guitar players

Top 10 Videos of unknown, aged
13-15 girl axe players, whom
you will never be as good as

I'm using the "royal you," which means me.
Evidently there are chords other than C,D,F,G, and Am

This is my winner (and ranked #1)

Someone commented - about #9 "The best 13 year old guitar player in the world," --

Great playing though the quality was horrible

Indeed. If I ain't hummin' it afterwards, it ain't music; it's a racket.


Japan’s radioactive fallout could have silver lining

Ann Coulter's latest punji-stake
pit for media Liberals scores big

  In response to my column last week about hormesis -- the theory that some radiation can be beneficial to humans -- liberals reacted with their usual open-minded examination of the facts.

According to Noel Sheppard at Newsbusters, MSNBC's Ed Schultz devoted an entire segment to denouncing me. He called me toxic, accused me of spreading misinformation and said I didn't care about science.

One thing Schultz did not do, however, was cite a single physicist or scientific study.  [Ann Coulter - LIBERALS: THEY BLINDED US WITH SCIENCE]

Low exposure to the Nagasaki atomic blast resulted in longer lifespans

The immense suffering that the Japanese are enduring in the aftermath of their earthquake and tsunami is now compounded by torment over radiation releases from the Fukushima nuclear plant.

While the torment is understandable, based on the reported amounts of radiation released, it is uncalled for. The evidence from Japan’s populace — inadvertent guinea pigs in the largest radiation experiment ever, in the aftermath of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 — indicates that fears over radiation can be overblown.

Wouldn't you think that by now they'd learn to follow up before sounding like ... Liberals?

Disappointing Technology

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP7:
New Digital Camera Turns
People Into Cartoon Figures

I'm disappointed that Panasonic not only doesn't offer a technologically valuable service; they don't even live up to  ancient technology, let alone SONY's years-old X-RAY cam-corder.  Sheesh.

Do I have to say anything? Okay, I will. Which girl do you like best?  The one with some facial character?  Or the one who looks like a crudely done photo-chop?  And what's the purpose of taking pictures in the first place?  To preserve a memory, I'd think. Or at least satisfy a yen. Sheesh.

Of The Ghost Cities Of China

China's Ghost Cities

  The hottest market in the hottest economy in the world is Chinese real estate. The big question is how vulnerable is this market to a crash.

One red flag is the vast number of vacant homes spread through China, by some estimates up to 64 million vacant homes.

We've tracked down satellite photos of these unnerving places, based on a report from Forensic Asia Limited. They call it a clear sign of a bubble: "There’s city after city full of empty streets and vast government buildings, some in the most inhospitable locations. It is the modern equivalent of building pyramids. With 20 new cities being built every year, we hope to be able to expand our list going forward."
Not surpising that Progressive China  has Fannie Maes and  Barney Franks.

War Inc.

WAR, Inc. (2008)

(but recommended for the fun)
Let's cut the shit, Walken! I like killing people as much as the next guy, but I signed up to kill the bad ones! Health clinics, trade unionists, journalists, agricultural co-ops, catholic liberation theologians, impoverished Colombian coffee farmers, these are the barbarians that are brave opponents of civilization? We turned Central America into a fuckin' graveyard! Whoever momentarily interrupts the acummulation of our wealth, we pulverize! I'm just not feeling good about that anymore, sir!  - John Cusack as Brand Hauser

Go figure.  In WAR,INC we have a movie starring one of Hollywood's premier leftists (John Cusack as a hitman posing as a trade show producer) who works for (thinly disguised) ex Vice President Dick Cheney (Dan Aykroyd),  front man for capitalist war mongering  Tamerlane industries. Hilary Duff, Marisa Tomei ( a reporter for liberal magazines), Ben Kingsley and Joan Cusack  also star in this Hollywood parody about post-Bush United States. And I loved it. Rotten Tomatoes did not.

Like I said, there is no more smug leftist Hollywood asshat blabbermouth than John Cusak, but I just like the guy.  I think because he reminds me of so many of the kids I grew up with in Chicago, or maybe myself?  I could definitely hang with him,  and make fun of his idiotic politics, but that's just me. And hey, the Arabs have names like "Omar Sharif," and Joan Cusak is "Marsha Dillon."  It's a snort; so over the top that it parodies the people who made it.
