Fox “News” drops Glenn Beck, sentient beings around the world cheer

Well, halle-freakin-lujah.

Glenn Beck to End Daily Fox News Program

Glenn Beck will end his daily Fox News Channel program later this year.

His departure was jointly announced on Wednesday by Fox and Mr. Beck’s company, Mercury Radio Arts. The companies said they would “work together to develop and produce a variety of television projects for air on the Fox News Channel as well as content for other platforms including Fox News’ digital properties.”

And as soon as these other projects bomb, which they will, Beck will be consigned to the dustbin of history except for his radio show. I’m sure you’ll be able to hear him spew his hurtful, hateful, harmful effluvience in the South and in hardcore conservative areas around the country indefinitely.…

Former state Asst. Attorney General and gay-student stalker Shirvell sued for harassment

Former state Assistant Attorney General Andrew Shirvell is being sued by University of Michigan student Chris Armstrong for harassment:

The current University of Michigan student body president filed a lawsuit Friday saying a former assistant state attorney general stalked him and inflicted emotional distress last year by posting alleged defamatory statements on a blog as part of a “bizarre personal obsession” that included calling him a Nazi, Ku Klux Klan member and a “radical homosexual activist,” according to a lawsuit.

Chris Armstrong, the first openly gay student body president at U-M, filed the suit against Andrew Shirvell in Washtenaw County Circuit Court.

Republicans’ new “budget” proposal institutionalizes “healthcare rationing”

The GOPocrisy rose to Fukushima-type levels this week as the Republicans rolled out their so-called “budget”. Wait, not a budget, a “cause”.

First, after beating Democrats about the head and shoulders last fall for daring to propose that Medicare waste be reduced by describing it as “cutting Medicare”, they have the audacity to now propose eliminating Medicare as we know it and replacing it with a coupon system for seniors and disabled Americans.

They are also slashing Medicaid, putting the onus on states, many of which are already crumbling under massive debt, to make up the difference.

This budget cause also revokes the federal subsidies created by the new health insurance law, the Affordable Care Act, passed by Democrats last year that would help poor Americans to obtain health insurance, many for the first time.…

For tea party Republicans, it’s business as usual — and then some

Nepotism is so offensive that, when you see it, your first instinct is to want to shake someone by the lapels, shake them silly, then throw them out into the street.

In this case, it would be Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker lying in the dirt and dust in the road in front of the saloon.

It’s good to be born to people who know people.

That’s largely the perception many Wisconinites are taking away from this weekend’s revelation that the son of a major political donor to Republican Governor Scott Walker landed a very well-heeled post in the state’s Department of Commerce with apparent ease.

More on Rep. Ray Franz, the idiot who wants to ban offshore windpower in Michigan

Just to recap: Michigan Congressman Ray Franz is an idiot.

Michigan Congressman Ray Franz is an idiot that wants to ban (BAN!) offshore wind energy in Michigan.

While the rest of the world is diversifying their energy portfolio to include renewable energy sources, Michigan Congressman Ray Franz (an idiot) wants to take us backwards.

Why does Congressman Franz want to ban offshore wind turbines in Michigan? Here’s why:

“It’s not environmentally sound to have machines like these on our lakes. They are our greatest asset, and industrialization on them is a hazard to nature and the economy.”

What’s he worried about?…

About that whole Gitmo thing…

Amen to this.

Considering the circumstances, if you are against the use of military courts to finish the trials of the remaining detainees, then you might as well be advocating indefinite detention without trial because congress has blocked anything else from taking place.

If you believe this administration is left with any other choice, you are flat wrong.

I’m just sayin’……

More Dem threats against conservatives? Or not?

I’m sorry, but I am having a very hard time believing that this is actually coming from liberals:

A free-market think-tank at the center of a controversy over Freedom of Information Act requests to labor-studies departments received a series of death threats and bomb threats Thursday night and early today.

Personnel at the Midland-based Mackinac Center for Public Policy reported the five calls to the FBI and the local police. Spokesman Michael Jahr told the Free Press they appeared to come from one or two women and made repeated references to “The Rachel Maddow Show” on MSNBC.

~SNIP~

Four of the messages appeared to be from the same person.

19th Century-vintage Islamophobe Terry Jones incites riots in Afghanistan, 21 people killed

On March 20th, Islamophobe and 19th Century throwback, “Pastor” Terry Jones, held a mock trial where he put the Koran on trial, found it guilty and then burned it with video cameras rolling. It was part of something they called “International Judge the Koran Day” which, apparently took place only in the sad little backwater community in Gainesville, Florida where Jones has his “church”.

You can read more about the event HERE if you have the intestinal fortitude to wade through their drivel. Here’s a snippet of the hypocritical pap that Jones spews about his “religion”:

This has been set up like an American court.…
