Republican Economic Polices Suck

By the way, I got something wrong... When I said "Michigan didn't have a hug bidget deficit last year, "that wasn't quite right. We actual had a rather large budget SURPLUS. So I ask again: WHY did this have to happen?!

And here is the KOS Article I mentioned: Minnesota Liberalism Trounces Wisconsin Conservatism

Ferguson Police Meme

A meme, by me, for the Ferguson Police Department and, sadly, many others.

Laura Ingrahm and LGBT "Child Abuse"

My take on Laura Ingrahm's recent statement that it's "child abuse" to give [transgendered] "children" "hormone therapy" and that parents "should let them go through puberty, for goodness sake."

I've also solicited some comments from others, who's opinions I both respect, and who are much closer to the issue at hand. I will add them as they come in, so this post will likely (I hope) be updated a few times in the near future.:

Rusty Shackelford (friend from MMFA):

"Besides the obvious (that she's in disagreement with the AMA, APA, HHS, and pretty much every major medical body and authority in the country), a valid point on this whole matter is the hypocrisy, as conservatives suddenly want government intervention into "parental rights" the moment the parents do something they don't like.  Parents hitting their kids is none of your business, but letting a boy wear a dress?  Call child services!"

Sterling Silver


"It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re associating with black people. Do you have to?"

"You can sleep with [black people]. You can bring them in, you can do whatever you want.  The little I ask you is not to promote it on that ... and not to bring them to my games."

"I’m just saying, in your lousy fucking Instagrams, you don’t have to have yourself with, walking with black people." 

"Don't put [Magic Johnson] on an Instagram for the world to have to see so they have to call me.  And don't bring him to my games."

~soon to be former LA Clippers Owner, Donald Sterling


BTW, just so there is no confusion, I did not feel it necessary in my video to specifically condemn Sterling's remarks. That was not actually relevant to my overall point, and at this point is hardly necessary as so many people far greater than myself have already come down on him, hard, and rightfully so.

Obviously the remarks are despicable.  That should go without saying.

I had a kind of different take on the whole thing though, that was at once both cynical and optimistic. And THAT'S what I wanted to talk about here.

A new direction for the blog, and "small government"

...And since my YouTube skills are obviously lacking, here are the two "blink and you'll miss them" graphs that I referred to (and briefly showed) in the video:
