    Former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb has formally entered the race for president as a Democrat. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker will be formally joining the race as a Republican on July 13.

  • Bernie Sanders' campaign has raised $15 million since it launched in April. Just think of how many starving children that could feed!
  • Star Trek's George Takei called Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas "a clown in blackface" over his dissenting opinion in Obergefell v. Hodges, the case that made gay marriage recognition the law of the land.
  • In the wake of the aforementioned Supreme Court ruling, a trio in Montana has applied for marriage licenses and seek the same government recognition.
  • The United Kingdom has admitted it illegally snooped on Amnesty International and kept its communications.
  • The governor of Pennsylvania has vetoed legislation to eliminate the state-run system of alcohol sales and privatize it. Gov. Tom Wolf, a Democrat, said, "It makes bad business sense for the Commonwealth and consumers to sell off an asset, especially before maximizing its value." So consumers and retailers don't have actual freedom because the state wants to make money.
  • Measles has killed its first patient in the United States in 12 years.
  • Have a happy Independence Day weekend, to the extent that your local government permits you to! (Or defy them and have even more fun!)

  1. Former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb has formally entered the race for president as a Democrat.

    We all waited with bated breath and can now let out a collective yawn.

    1. Hello.

      “Bernie Sanders’ campaign has raised $15 million since it launched in April. Just think of how many starving children that could feed!”

      Or how many deodorants you can buy all those orphans! They stink after a long day in the mines.

      1. I think the current market is two orphans for I spray can……….
        Oh, wait! I thought you posed ‘think how many deodorants you can buy with all those orphans’!

    2. Not me. I love the possibility of having a sane Dem in the race.

        1. People keep saying that, but I’m not so sure. So much baggage, so many scandals.

          1. Yeah. Wasn’t she inevitable in ’08?

            1. Yes, so they said.

    3. I think we’re supposed to freak out every time a Democrat enters the race and say “hahaha the Democrats are fighting among themselves!”, just like Dems have been doing every time republican candidate takes a swing at another. As if it weren’t normal for primary candidates seeking the same fucking job.

      Dems find something respectable about the way their party machine basically makes certain candidates “inevitable”.

  2. Bernie Sanders’ campaign has raised $15 million since it launched in April.

    I hope all that was only in one denomination.

    1. When I was a teller back in the day – I told stories…get it? Never mind – we had a client come in and ask for $400 U.S. dollars.

      All in one dollar bills.

      1. That was back when strippers were happy enough with one dollar tips. Twenties now.

        1. Living wage, bra. Living wage.

        2. Really?

          Reason #1,345,007 why the 80s were a special time.

          1. Not happy, but not openly derisive

          2. It was the 1990s. I was doing some grownings ups in the 1980s. You know, watching The A-Team, kissing Emilia, partying with nutcase French-Canadians, winning MVP – ahem – soccer awards, New Wave music, blah, blah.

            1. Speaking of soccer awards, at least England didn’t go out on penalties last night.

              1. No. What they got was worse.

                1. I probably should have put a smiley on my comment.

                  1. I figured you’d be pleased.

    2. Saw a Sanders-Warren bumper sticker today. I was disappointed to see the car had a NH license plate, not Mass

      1. Yesterday I saw a white Mercedes SUV in Boston with the “Libertarian” bumper sticker. It had a MA license plate.

        1. Liar liar pants on fire

      2. We live in the end times.

  3. Star Trek‘s George Takei called Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas “a clown in blackface” over his dissenting opinion…

    The phrase “Uncle Tom” must have escaped Sulu there.

    1. It doesn’t make any sense. Does Takei think there are no black clowns?

      1. You mean, other than Al Sharpton and the current POTUS?

    2. Set phasers to woodchipper.

      1. -1 Klingon around Uranus

    3. Of course he did. Thomas offended Takei’s pre ioud feelings. Complete emotional engagement at the expense of intellect.

    4. See, that’s how you show people you’re a Good Winner – make racist remarks.

      1. It’s okay to be racist to a black conservative. Serves them right for thinking other than they’re told.

    5. “computer. Set woodchipper to stun”

  4. The governor of Pennsylvania has vetoed legislation to eliminate the state-run system of alcohol sales and privatize it.

    That was pretty inevitable. Elections have consequences, Pennsylvania.

    1. Nice to see nothing has changed in Pennsyltucky.

      1. Actually, I retract that joke.

        Used to be the only state PA could make fun of for being backwards was KY.

        Now the folks in KY make PA jokes.

        1. We have stupid alcohol laws, but nothing like PA.

          1. Years ago a buddy of mine came from PA to visit me in AZ. We were at a normal supermarket where he stood dumbfounded for about 10 minutes in the alcohol aisle. All the booze you could imagine for sale on a sunday morning at Safeway.

            1. Same thing when out-of-state students would go to the Ralph’s (Kroeger everywhere else) or Rite Aid near the school for the first time.

              “…BUT THERE’S LIQUOR ON THE SHELVES…OF A GROCERY STORE”

              1. .BUT THERE’S LIQUOR ON THE SHELVES…OF A GROCERY STORE

                As there should be. Here me PA and NH? Especially NH.. “Live free or die!” right?

    2. I laughed when I read this:

      “It makes bad business sense for the Commonwealth and consumers to sell off an asset, especially before maximizing its value,”

  5. Measles has killed its first patient in the United States in 12 years

    A blemish on the face of the republic.

    1. I laughed.

  6. Measles has killed its first patient in the United States in 12 years.

    We can’t go a dozen measly years without such a fatality?

    1. Exactly the most vulnerable sort of person — someone with an immune system suppressed by medications.

      Having said that, the USA Today article linked to spends approx 2 paragraphs on what actually happened, then fills the article out with random vaccine talking points including statements from Paul Offit? How about some actual reporting on what happened? I don’t need to hear Offit turn the handle for the zillionth time.

  7. Godzilla better watch out for the nuclear scorpion crawling around Japan.

    1. Mechagodzilla can handle it.

      1. Or Robert Smith.

        1. +1 rochambeau

    2. That was disappointing

  8. N. Korean scientist flees to Finland with info on inhumane experiments

    The 47-year-old left with 15 gigabytes worth of data and information regarding human experimentation, which he felt may have crossed ethical boundaries according to Yonhap News Agency.

    The researcher plans to present and hand over the information to the European parliament later this month.

    At least the prisoners probably weren’t subjected to 23 kinds of deodorant.

    1. That’s a lot of floppy disks.

    2. Greece will vote to sell him back to NK for a suitcase of hard currency.

      1. I laughed.

    3. I really hope this guy does not have any family left behind in North Korea.

      1. Are NK scientists allowed to have families?

    4. and information regarding human experimentation, which he felt may have crossed ethical boundaries

      I don’t think they really ate the rabbits.

  9. Have a happy Independence Day weekend, to the extent that your local government permits you to! (Or defy them and have even more fun!)

    Does this mean you lazy bums won’t be gracing us with lynx tomorrow?

    1. That was a hint, yes.

      1. Let freedom ring in lieu of their alarm clocks.

    2. SOP for public holidays.

      1. Tomorrow is the 3rd. *tears calendar off wall* THE MOTHER FUCKING 3RD!!!!

  10. Bernie Sanders’ campaign has raised $15 million since it launched in April. Just think of how many starving children that could feed!

    The market has provided me with too many candidate choices.

    1. I lol’d.

  11. Measles has killed its first patient in the United States in 12 years.

    Maybe, but at least they didn’t get teh autism.

    1. It would be appropriate if the funeral cortege passed in front of Jenny McCarthy’s home.

  12. MANIACS! YOU BLEW IT UP! AH, DAMN YOU! GOD DAMN YOU ALL TO HELL!

    Sssssssssss! The advent of bubble wrap that doesn’t pop

    1. I never understood how that was considered fun.

      1. My mother was obsessed with it, and she was pretty no-nonsense.

        1. Yeah, obsession is a better word for it than fun. It’s like scratching an itch.

      2. Of course not. Even if your drums had the dexterity to grip a single bubble, how could the pleasing pop hope to be heard over the cacophony of your engine?

    2. This is NOT progress!

  13. …a trio in Montana has applied for marriage licenses and seek the same government recognition.

    YOU’RE MAKING A MOCKERY OUT OF THE SANCTITY OF MARRIAGE LICENSING.

    1. One would think the divorce statistics make a mockery of the sanctity of marriage licencing.

    1. Before I hover over your link and see if it’s SMBC, is it SMBC? Does it involve squirrels?

      *hovers mouse*

      Yesssssss.

  14. “We’ve already found a secret memo coming out of the Justice Department,” DeLay claimed. “They’re now going to go after 12 new perversions, things like bestiality, polygamy, having sex with little boys and making that legal. Not only that, but they have a whole list of strategies to go after the churches, the pastors, and any businesses that tries to assert their religious liberty. This is coming and it’s coming like a tidal wave.”

    12 new perversions, folks! He only listed three. Help me come up with 9 other perversions to round out the ‘secret Justice Department memo’.

    Wartysex? Dendrophilia?…

    1. having sex with little boys and making that legal

      Because Republicans have shown so much moral rectitude on that subject.

      1. He didn’t technically say he was against all the allegedly coming changes.

    2. I wouldn’t call ‘politics’ a ‘new‘ perversion.

    3. Is it sounding? I hope it’s sounding.

      1. Is sounding illegal where you live?

        1. I’m going to say…probably?

          1. Is sounding the one where you put sticks up your per hole?

            1. Yes. Although generally surgical grade metal, not sticks.

              1. Well somebody is spoiled.

                *goes back to jamming bamboo stick in urethra*

                1. Haven’t been feeling well.

                  *goes back to jamming bamboo stick in urethra*

                  First thing I laughed at all day.

              2. Dear god that sounds painful.

                1. At first you hate it, then you crave it.

    4. Necrophilia.

      Watching HBO.

    5. Prostitution. We need some legal fuckery for money. Everyone else gets to.

    6. Necrophilia, coprophagia, self marriage, robosexuals, reincarnated chain marriages, marrying a ghost. That’s what I got off the top of my head.

      1. I’m game for a chain marriage. I’ll be some billionairess’s kept man our of her harem of hundreds, and in return as a man of middle class means, I get two or three kept women, and maybe they get a man each.

        1. “I get two or three kept women, and maybe they get a man each.”

          How nice of you

      2. Well, to combat robosexuality, all we need to do is show people the Space Pope’s video on the subject, right?

        1. All kidding aside, I would do anything for a Lucy Liu bot.

    7. Do American heteros do “dogging” or is that purely British?

        1. Dogging is public, exhibitionistic sex with a touch of swinging thrown in for fun. Usually in parks or local woods.

          The government seems keen on cracking down on this practice. I find the British pastime delightful.

          1. I think the sex offender stuff here clamps down on it. Sounds fun though.

          2. Gays used to do that in rest areas on the highway. Now they’re all closed.

            1. I like how you posit that as causation even though travel motels and small towns along road trip routes are also in significant decline, and food court/gas station complexes with bathrooms are on the rise.

              1. I don’t think he said it caused it, it just happened.

                1. Not the first time he’s brought it up. He has asserted causation in the past.

                  1. I wasn’t privy to that. Carry on.

                  2. Not the first time he’s brought it up. He has asserted causation in the past.

                    I thought there was causation because that’s what “they” say, but after doing some research I found no definitive proof. So it looks like mere correlation. Though there could be a causal relationship there. Just because I found no proof doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

                    1. Just because I found no proof doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

                      No, but it’s a poor fit for the evidence if you take into account changes in infrastructure need following air travel deregulation and shifting transportation funding priorities.

                    2. I’m not asserting anything. Lighten up.

            2. Who closed all the gays?

          3. I’ve noticed that Japanese seem to be into dogging, …well.., …er… …at least that’s what some people tell me.

      1. Dogging videos always disappoint. Always looks like a couple dozen creepy guys wandering around the woods while a chick gives a couple of handjobs out her car window.

        1. The “Blair Witch Project” of amateur porn….shaky and poorly acted.

      2. British girls don’t even need men–they score on their own.

    8. How many perversions are actually illegal these days? That’s the starting point to narrowing this shit down.

      1. I DON’T KNOW!

        Public sex, sex for money and sex with people/things that can’t (legally/otherwise) consent I’d imagine.

        1. sex with people/things that can’t (legally/otherwise) consent

          MY DOG IS NOT A “THING”, YOU FILTHY QUEER!

      2. It depends on the whims of the cops and judges. Rule of law is dead.

      3. They balance it out by making old things illegal, like kissing a coed at a party without asking first.

    9. All taken from “The Imp of the Polymorphous Perverse”, by Edgar A. Freud.

    10. Taking bribes?

    11. What the… As if a man married to one woman isn’t torture enough!

    12. Doesn’t Wartysex encompass 3 or 4 perversions all by itself?

  15. “Measles has killed its first patient in the United States in 12 years”

    Who to blame? Who will Obama blame?

    1. And let’s see how the vaccine fares.

      Everything has risks. Bathtubs. Summer storms. The common cold. Sex and chocolate. Ban all the things!

      1. Let me see. 1 death from the disease in 12 years and over 300 deaths from the vaccine in the past 25. Yeah, only an imbecile would defy odds like that.

        1. You know that that poster of Jenny McCarthy over your bed is for jerking off to – right?

          1. I am not familiar with Jenny McCarthy. Does she believe that even though a vaccine might be statistically more dangerous than the actual disease, you should get vaccinated for feels anyway? Better dead than stupid?

            1. Wow, that doesn’t take the risks of measles returning to common childhood illness status into account even a little bit.

              1. Ban the vaccine, ban the measles, solve everyone’s problems. Ban childhood too. They only exists for perverted reasons anyhow, and I’m pretty sure we can get them classified as an STD.

                SIT DOWN.
                SHUT UP.
                STAY SAFE.

                1. 1 dead in 12 years. Over 300 dead in 25 from the vaccine. Why would someone take it, again? I didn’t even list the number of non-deadly reactions from the vaccine. You smart people all have your small pox vaccines and polio, right? And would immediately get a vaccine for Ebola if available, right? If they make any vaccine, only an idiot wouldn’t take it, regardless of actual statistics?

                  In no case have I ever said, or even thought for that matter, “ban”.

            2. Does she believe that even though a vaccine might be statistically more dangerous than the actual disease, you should get vaccinated for feels anyway? Better dead than stupid?

              You’re really fucking stupid, dude. Someone needs to tell you.

              1. Someone needs to tell you.

                Please do.

        2. You realize the reason the measles death rate is so low is because the of the vaccine right numbskull?

          1. And this has what to do with current statistical risk? WTF? Even though the risk from the measles vaccine is greater than the risk from the fucking disease get one anyway? Jenny McCarthy gargle-bargle something something?

            1. You’ve done a marvelous job at missing the point. No comprehension at all. Like Warty said, you’re really fucking stupid.

              1. Bizarro world. I point out that the vaccine is currently more deadly than the disease and you mention the vaccines effectiveness in the past. I never mentioned Jenny McCarthy or autism or used the generic “vaccine”. Yeah for the measles vaccine! Jenny McCarthy is an idiot!

                I am convinced by your highly intellectual arguments. I think that you should all go out and get that measles vaccine right now! Cytofascist, you should get two!

                A simple observation about statistical risk and you people shit yourselves. You probably couldn’t find a better example of groupthink on HuffPo.

        3. Yeah, only an imbecile would…

          …not understand what those numbers mean.

  16. The governor of Pennsylvania has vetoed legislation to eliminate the state-run system of alcohol sales and privatize it. Gov. Tom Wolf, a Democrat, said, “It makes bad business sense for the Commonwealth and consumers to sell off an asset, especially before maximizing its value.” So consumers and retailers don’t have actual freedom because the state wants to make money.

    MOTHER. FUCKER. I just moved back to this shithole and this is how it repays me.

    1. C’mon. Who doesn’t want to go to the bar to overpay for a six pack?

    2. I just moved back to this shithole

      It will be interesting to see if PA and OH’s violent rape stats flip-flop.

    3. One wonders how Camden manages to be so fucked up.

    4. Warty, it was a trap. You, of all people, should understand these things.

    5. I noticed that you’ve been saying “yinz” a lot recently.

  17. VOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOXXXXXXXXXXXXX!

    “3 reasons the American Revolution was a mistake”

    “America would have a better system of government if we’d stuck with Britain

    “In the US, activists wanting to put a price on carbon emissions spent years trying to put together a coalition to make it happen, mobilizing sympathetic businesses and philanthropists and attempting to make bipartisan coalition ? and they still failed to pass cap and trade, after millions of dollars and man hours. In the UK, the Conservative government decided it wanted a carbon tax. So there was a carbon tax. Just like that. Passing big, necessary legislation ? in this case, legislation that’s literally necessary to save the planet ? is a whole lot easier with parliaments than presidential systems.”

    Guys, in other countries you can just pass super sweeping legislation with virtually no checks or balances. Why, when Hitler wanted to pass the Nuremberg Laws, he just did it! No obstructionist Republicans or anything!

    1. I also like the argument that the British would have been nicer to the natives. There are about 40 million Indians who were starved to death by the British Raj who would likely disagree.

      1. The British government starving all those Indians to death with idiotic colonial policy is also what made Howard Fast a communist when he saw it because he was in India as a war correspondent.

      2. Not to mention the Zulus.

    2. Two thoughts:

      1. If you can pass legislation the way the Brits did, you can repeal it just as easily (see Australia & carbon taxes).

      2. The argument in favor of a parliamentary system has strange bedfellows:

      http://www.cato.org/events/onc…..nt-america

      1. I am coming around against presidential systems in favor of parliamentary ones.

    3. More from the article:

      Government spending in parliamentary countries is about 5 percent of GDP higher, after controlling for other factors, than in presidential countries. If you believe in redistribution, that’s very good news indeed.

      1. What the? I’d be kind of curious to know if that was actually due to redistribution, some kind of inherent inefficiency, or some other cause.

        Parliament excels at redistributing money from taxpayers to sinecure bureaucrats!

      2. So that’s it? More government spending equals better redistribution? It was so simple all along.

      1. Ah, another of the mysterious 12 perversions.

    4. Plus, if we were still British we’d all be witty and sophisticated with cool accents instead of gun-toting hillbillies

      /probably the main reason

    1. Is the NDP saying yet that the people of Vancouver don’t know what’s good for them?

    2. I smiled when I saw that. (It’s buried very deep on the CBC’s web page.)

    3. I have no idea what the hell mayors were expecting.

      “Hey, government? Remember that referendum about sales tax you lost and almost cost you an election?”
      “Yes?”
      “We want you to increase sales tax, and give us all the money.”
      “What? OK but there will be a referendum”
      “No fair! Why don’t you want to fall for our benefit?”

      Scary that City of Vancouver proper almost voted for. Fuck, ours is the most posturing, worthless piece of shit of all the mayors involved.

      1. Why do you live in that overrated overpriced hipster den? Seriously, Victoria at least has some charm and better traffic. And drier weather. Still no opportunity though.

        1. Friends and jobs. Can’t be arsed to restart my life in some cold crappy place, which is rest of Canada, and rest of BC is pretty shit for tech jobs.

          1. I guess those are the only kinds of jobs Van has.

    4. I love how they say services have to be cut. They have no problem raising taxes, but raising bus fares by 50 cents is worse than calling Mohammad a fag.

      Public servants are stupid assholes. No exceptions. (Sorry Rand.)

      1. Rand isn’t stupid.

  18. Spot the Not: police mottos

    1. Phoenix Police Department: Total Policing

    2. Detroit Police Department: Making Detroit a Safer Place to Live, Work, and Visit

    3. Minneapolis Police Department: To Protect with Courage, To Serve with Compassion

    4. New York Police Department: Fidelis ad Mortem (Faithful unto death)

    5. Chicago Police Department: We Serve and Protect

    6. Los Angeles Police Department: To Protect and to Serve

    1. I see # 3 on the pig-mobiles here in the City of Lakes. BTW, this city is so fucked up that the annual Aquatennial will no longer take place on the chain of lakes, but rather, downtown.

      1. It’s been largely that way for awhile now, hasn’t it?

        These idiots can suck the fun out of everything. Remember when the Vulcans had to stop their drunken groping?

      2. Don’t you realize that we in the People’s Republic of MN are protecting you from drowning near all that water? Our state (gov’t) sucks.

    2. Gonna have to go with #1.

      (and the last two just made me think To Serve Man, which then of course made me think How to Cook for Forty Humans…)

    3. 5 is true, remember it from childhood

      I’ll go with the obvious — 1

    4. 1 is the Not, but Total Policing is the motto of London’s police force.

      1. I thought theirs was “Cameras in All the Places.”

  19. Scott Walker signs bill banning microbeads

    http://www.jsonline.com/news/s…..04961.html

    Have you Peanuts seen this?

    Sorry – been busy.

    1. Sorry – been busy.

      We understand. Obama isn’t just going to fellate himself.

      1. I say he can. Actually I think I say that every time I hear his voice.

    2. You were missed less than a herpes outbreak.

    3. microbeads

      For tight-asses?

    4. Yes, we know: you’ve been working on your crappy rock and roll book, fuckface.

  20. Bernie Sanders’ campaign has raised $15 million since it launched in April. Just think of how many starving children that could feed!

    You don’t necessarily need a choice of 15 million different dollars when children are hungry in this country.

  21. PETA members dress up as orcas at airport

    Since killer whales have anything to do with airlines

    1. Weirdos.

      People are already stressed out at airports and they have to see these blubber-brains in action?

    2. They’re targeting little kids who are going to Seaworld with their parents. If you assume the most cowardly, slimy motive for PETA, you’ll usually be right.

      1. (that should be *on vacation with their parents, if it wasn’t clear)

    3. Airliners crashing into the oceans will kill a whale sooner or later. THEY MUST BE STOPPED BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!

  23. Star Trek’s George Takei called Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas “a clown in blackface” over his dissenting opinion in Obergefell v. Hodges

    My prog friends on the subject: Sure, he shouldn’t have said it, but he was angry, and Scalia’s dissent was really dumb, so he can be excused for it.

    3. Is this a trick question?

      Anyway, I like http://www.samizdata.net/

      Who are they?

      The Samizdata people are a bunch of sinister and heavily armed globalist illuminati who seek to infect the entire world with the values of personal liberty and several property. Amongst our many crimes is a sense of humour and the intermittent use of British spelling.

      We are also a varied group made up of social individualists, classical liberals, whigs, libertarians, extropians, futurists, ‘Porcupines’, Karl Popper fetishists, recovering neo-conservatives, crazed Ayn Rand worshipers, over-caffeinated Virginia Postrel devotees, witty Fr?d?ric Bastiat wannabes, cypherpunks, minarchists, kritarchists and wild-eyed anarcho-capitalists from Britain, North America, Australia and Europe.

  25. University of Vermont: Blue Eye Color Is Linked to Alcoholism, New Study From School Suggests

    The authors found that primarily European Americans with light-colored eyes — including green, grey and brown in the center — had a higher incidence of alcohol dependency than those with dark brown eyes, with the strongest tendency among blue-eyed individuals. The study outlines the genetic components that determine eye color and shows that they line up along the same chromosome as the genes related to excessive alcohol use.

      I’ll go make another margarita.
