just a simple apology is all it takes, apparently

Former Representative Henry Hyde (R) died this morning in Chicago. (sniff)

CBS News reports: "Hyde was chairman of the Judiciary panel during the impeachment of former President Bill Clinton in 1998. reported in Sept. 1998 that Hyde had carried on an extra-marital affair in the late 1960s, for which Hyde publicly apologized."

So, what I'm getting is that in the Republican world, as long as you apologize after being caught all is forgiven, and being hypocritical and two-faced liars is the order of the day.

Rescue TerraCycle!

In what seems to be the next step in the Scotts Company's attempt to dominate the world, they have brought suit against a little upstart company named TerraCycle for what amounts to using two of the same colors Scott's uses on their Miracle Grow product. You do the math:Do these packages look even remotely the same? I mean there are some similarities, but really, they are totally different. I hardly believe we have a rash of angry consumers returning to stores because they were duped into buying the wrong product!

Scott's has unleashed a pack of corporate lawyers to sue TerraCycle because its recycled packages have green and yellow labels! Last time I checked, corporations cannot own colors and most garden-care companies go for the color combination of green and yellow anyway. Could it be that Scott's, who controls 60% of the lawn and garden market, is a bit worried about a company that has figured out how to be truly "green" and give us as consumers a way to naturally treat our plants with the same results as synthetic Miracle Grow? Hmmm?

TerraCycle's product is an ecofriendly plant food made of liquified worm poop! Now before you gross out, it is also known as compost tea which is basically the nutrient rich by-product of good healthy soil. They have figured out a way to make this tea, and bottle it in recovered plastic drink and water bottles collected by schools and charities. How great is that for Karma?! The product is awesome and can now be purchased at Home Depot and Lowes.

So here is your call to action:
#1 Go buy a bottle of TerraCycle Plant Food, use it, watch your plants turn into The Little Shop of Horrors!
#2 Visit to find out more

Happy 2 Year Blogiversary to My Brain!
Can you even believe it? Not only have I stuck with this crazy thing for two years, but so have you! Wow! You guys have got some kind of endurance to hang with me and my ramblings for this long!
Those of you that have been with me since the start know that things have come and gone, but one thing has stayed consistent---my disgust for George W. Bush!
So, let's raise a 40 to our Dumbass in Chief, thank him for all the material, and look forward to next November 21st when we have a new Democratic president!

well, duh...

This post over at Gay Gamer, a site where geeky-but-manly gay boys keep us up to date on all things gamely, made me laugh but didn't surprise me at all.

Now really, who thought that Conservatives would play games at all? I mean what with all the Hillary hating, Bill bashing, freedom destroying, baby saving, gay bashing, and ribbon wearing who would have time? I reckon their entire days are spent plotting how to blame the next natural disaster on the gays and hating Muslims! If I were that busy I'd never have time to pick up a joystick either!

Seems like lately Bush can't find the resting place for that veto pen. Check out this headline and link:

I get it that this is whole big game of politics and this is the way it goes when you lose majority power, but my complaint comes in the hypocrisy of it all. The spending bill he just vetoed is the funding for our run of the mill services like labor, education, and health. So where does the pork appear? Bush is teed off because it also messes with the taxes for individuals that make over 100K.

Oh! Well silly me! By all means let's not screw around with that part of the barnyard! That bunch just can't bear to carry their portion of the load. But, let's be sure to pass it on the small business when that bill comes due. They can handle it.
If you read the link above, how'd you like the cutesy little phrase Bush delivered about a "teenager with a new credit card"? What a dick. What a hypocritical dick.

Happy Birthday Karly B!

Would you like Freedom Fries with that?

Last I heard, we were supposed to hate France. We changed our favorite food's name even. (Now that's tough stuff right there! )

Never fear fried potato stick eaters! French Fries are back!

Now what are you going to do with that ridiculous bumper sticker?

Sales on Bill O'Reilly's Christmas Store were heard plummeting all around the world...

What the...?

I can't wait to hear how the conservative blowhards justify endorsing Giuliani even though he is Pro-Choice and Pro-Gay. Pat Robertson laid his crazy neck on the line today and endorsed Rudy officially.

This is going to be fun. Their choices are Giuliani & McCain. heehee

now then.

Raise your hand if you had the honor of hearing Dennis Kucinich's privileged resolution to impeach Dick Cheney read out loud not once, but twice on C-SPAN yesterday?
I caught it on replay on Rachel Maddow's show, and it was great to hear those words. Even greater to hear someone have the balls to say them.

In a surprising, but not really, moment the Republicans voted to NOT table the discussion of this resolution and in fact sent it to the desk of John Conyers for committee. It seems that everyone is in agreement that the Republicans are gambling that if this resolution actually makes it to the debate stage, we Democrats will look oh so silly as we seriously expect the Dark Lord to be impeached.

The Daily Kos has a somewhat short recapped version of what went down yesterday. Jump here to fully understand all the intricacies in easy to understand verbiage.

Ok, I may have found my long awaited warm fuzzy feeling for a presidential candidate in the primary. drum roll please.......Dennis Kucinich!

I know, I are saying "WTF?!" where did that come from? She hasn't even mentioned him at all---ever! Well, you are right, but today I heard the incredible news that changed my mind and gave me someone to root for and someone who actually makes me feel good about casting a vote.

Can you come up with another name in the running that has the balls to do this?! Me neither. No other front runner has had the courage to entertain it much less actually draw up the resolution and present it to the floor. Bravo! To hell with having the first woman president, or having the first black president, how about a president that isn't afraid to use the pair God gave them or at least grow a pair!

I think that the primaries are the one time that you can let your little voting light shine. You get to make your voice heard for the little guy. After the nominations are announced, you have a limited number of choices for your vote. I have no idea who I will be behind once the primaries are over, but right now I'm going for Dennis.

Now here is what needs to happen, my minions, you need to write/contact your Reps and make sure they vote for this resolution. Let them know you are in favor of some action, any action, that would show someone else besides you and I care about the misdoings of this criminal administration. The link to contact your Representative is in the sidebar to the right. Go on...
