Republican presidential candidate RICK SANTORUM, on Sunday’s Meet The Press.
No seriously. This guy is a fucking dick.
The thing is, Santorum actually believes this. But in his defense, I can understand his self interest in ensuring fewer people go to college and become educated; he does have a voter base he needs to cultivate, after all.
In March of last year, Craig Lewis, 55, was dying from a heart condition that caused build-ups of abnormal proteins, and not even a pacemaker could help save his life.
But two doctors from the Texas Heart Institute proposed a revolutionary new solution – install a ‘continuous flow’ device that would allow blood to circulate his body without a pulse.
‘Hey Mitt. Workin’ hard or hardly workin’?’
Mitt Romney — and the entire Republican Party, for that matter — like to argue that rich people deserve big, fat tax breaks because they worked so hard for their money. Fellow rich guy Warren Buffett knocks that argument down:
He makes his money the same way I make my money. He makes money by moving around big bucks, not by straining his back and going to work cleaning the toilets or whatever it may be. He makes it shoving around money. I make it shoving around money. If you look at the 400 highest incomes in the United States, they average $220 million. Something like 90 of them are effectively unemployed. They have no earned income, and that number has gone up over the years. […]
It’s the wrong policy to have. Nothing wrong about [Romney] doing that. He will not pay more than the law requires. I don’t fault him for that in the least, but I do fault the law that allows him and me, earning enormous sums to pay over all federal taxes at a rate that is about half what the average person in my office pays.
If being fabulously well-to-do were only a matter of how hard you worked, Mittens would be a pauper, while bricklayers and dock workers would be the 1%.
Anonymous Message On How YOU Can Be A Part Of #OpGlobalBlackout FACEBOOK ATTACK 12 AM
Anonymous has been very ambitious recently, as many of you know. However, due to the current situation, they’re finally getting to business. The idea of knocking down Facebook is not at all new in their discussions, but it seems like they are finally planning on going for their biggest target yet. And they’re perfectly aware that it’s a daunting task. Facebook has 60,000 servers, more or less, so it’s capable of the hundreds of billions of visits it receives each day.
So they’re asking the citizens of the Internet - all of you - to accompany them in this major DDoS attack.
They give simple, easy instructions on how to use their Low-Orbit Ion Cannon, or LOIC, the primary software that they use for such attacks, as well as a link to a popular program that will change your IP address. They also plan on executing it simultaneously on 12 AM EST, January 28, 2012.
The question is, who will join?
If they get enough Internet users to join, if raids were to happen, there is a lesser chance that they will actually arrest the primary users in charge, perhaps humiliating the governments involved. Plus, it’s harder for them to reach their goal if lesser users join in.
If this succeeds, this will be the biggest stunt Anonymous pulls. And it will definitely speak to the world.
What do you think? Will you join? Will you watch and cheer them on? Or do you think this is an act of stupidity?
The 6 Corporations That Control 90% Of What You Read, Watch, And Listen To…America’s Media Monopolies…
As president of the Pacific Exchange in the late 1990s, Warren Langley oversaw the West Coast’s biggest financial center, a trading floor where some 17 million shares of stock changed hands daily. Though he served at the pleasure of traders and investment banks such as Morgan Stanley, he is no longer interested in pleasing them. Yesterday, he stood on a hillside in San Francisco’s Financial District in front Morgan Stanley’s and Goldman Sachs’ regional headquarters to declare his support for Occupy Wall Street West, a coalition of 50 groups planning a slew of anti-bank protests Friday.
“From the inside, I watched Goldman Sachs, the big banks, the hedge funds bet our money and then get bailed out when they lost,” said Langley, surrounded by protesters holding images of a devious-looking Mr. Moneybags (Monopoly) character.
“I saw corporations and the 1 percent buy our congressmen and senators and then pay no taxes, get subsidies, andmove jobs overseas. This is our last chance to level the playing field and let you and our kids and grandkids have the opportunities that I started with.”
On the one hand, Texas congressman Ron Paul, Republican candidate for the presidency, is a zealous champion of limited government, free markets and low taxes. On the other hand, he reportedly thinks the U.S. should not have gone to war against Nazi Germany. What to make of this heresy? In a word, a great deal – for it may define Mr. Paul’s isolationism.
Not really. I’m sitting in homeroom listening to the vocafarre concert, because, while I should probably be doing work, I really really don’t feel like it. I got my practice algebra midterm done but I’m like blahhh I doubt teachers will ask for it because it’s just make up work anyways, but still. So about the Vocafarre concert, it was pretty good, a couple new songs too one new one by Akikoroid, a first performance from Tone Rion (which I’ll get to in a bit), VY1 song, and a cover of a VY1 demo by Gumi and Akikoroid. One of the most entertaining things of the concert was probably the fact that live online comments were being put in the back, and a few inappropriate(yet funny) comments slipped by the mods.
VY1 starts out the intro with a bang, with her Vocafarre desu, her engurishu, is passable, and the song is catchy (as it was done by the same person who did Project Diva Desu for Crypton) and is a nice opening
So the concert actually starts out with Tone Rion as the first actual performer, now, you see her on the screen on the side, talking to 4 girls in the front, which include SeeU’s voice provider, and Mew’s voice provider, Tone Rion attempts to break out of the screen, and appears with the girls singing, this performance… was terrible. The girls danced decently, but the whole introduction was annoying, and all of the girls were terrible singers and drowned out Tone Rion completely. I couldn’t tell if she was terrible too or if she was being drowned out… either was it was just a shame because her model was extremely gorgeous and smooth.
Then there was Aoki Lapis, her songs were adorable, but a bit forgettable and boring. My main problem with her was how glitchy her small model was. She was really small, she had her own little stage and was extremely adorable for one song, and then the next she actually perched herself atop the guitarist’s shoulder. Cute, but a little lack luster, she only sung two songs and then disappeared, not to be seen for the rest of the concert.
Then there’s one of my favorites and one of the ones who really stole the show, Akikoroid, with her opening song, “I saw you at the convenience store” unveiled by two sliding doors, started picking up the slack where little Aoki left off. After that song, she sings a new one and has her back up dancers, this time, they’re actually dressed similar to her and there’s a new unknown song.
yes, Akikoroid is a troll.
Then we have Gumi who comes down in her own little platform type thing (which doesn’t really help her 80s stripper look) and sings Love Droid, then Megu Megu Endless night, with the help of Akikoroid’s back up dancers who have subsequently changed back into what the were wearing in their previous concert.
Then Akikoroid and Gumi Duet together two songs, the latter being a cover of VY1s demo Cyber Thunder Cider
which is way better than the originaland that’s the end of the show followed by a little thank you and credits.
Overall the show was extremely good except for the Tone Rion part. Now, Crypton, which seems to be losing their thunder to these newer companies , is planning a new concert in March at the Tokyo Dome a much larger venue, and saying it will be,”Miku’s last” Not exactly clear what the hell that means….. It’s possible they are officially retiring Miku’s V2 vocals as all other crypton v2 voicebanks are no longer sold. Crypton actually does have actual Hologram technology that they have put to use at the Tokyo Game show (and I’m not talking about the screens but actual 3-D projections you can walk around) the only reason they probably haven’t implemented it in concert is due to size concerns. Oliver is also planned to be used in a concert but not too much information on that… well that’s my review, peace!

Fox News viewers are less informed than people who don’t watch any news, according to a new poll from Fairleigh Dickinson University.
The poll surveyed New Jersey residents about the uprisings in Egypt and the Middle East, and where they get their news sources. The study, which controlled for demographic factors like education and partisanship, found that “people who watch Fox News are 18-points less likely to know that Egyptians overthrew their government” and “6-points less likely to know that Syrians have not yet overthrown their government” compared to those who watch no news.
This isn’t the first study that has found that Fox News viewers more misinformed in comparison to others. Last year, a study from the University of Maryland found that Fox News viewers were more likely to believe false information about politics.
Thank you for proving common knowledge.
Parents who named two of their children “Adolf Hitler” and “Aryan Nation” lost custody of all three of their children Thursday, even though they say a New Jersey appeals court found no evidence of abuse, ruling the children have been taken away without cause, MyFoxPhilly reports.
For one, I don’t know why you would name your kid those things in the first place. Anyway.
That’s completely irrelevant to the fact that even the judge (noted in several articles) stated that there was nothing wrong with the parents. No abuse. No evidence of any kind of radical activity. Nothing.
Although, yes, it’s wrong to name your kids something like that… that doesn’t give anyone the right to take away kids from their parents that easily. I think this is complete bull.
Great fuckin’ job again, New Jersey.
Don’t look like “dirty hippies” to me
