The Easter Parade

No negotiations with global hostage-takers! Bernie Sanders (I-VT) says “If an institution is too big to fail, it is too big to exist”. Couldn’t agree with him more!

North Korea has added Austin, TX to their list of missile targets! Never let facts get in the way of, well,  anything!

What with all the tough talk out of the Norks, some cooler heads are saying that serious hostilities between North and South Korea aren’t all that likely.

Hey, when even the NRA is de-bunking the internet conspiracy theories about the DHS buying enormous quantities of ammunition in preparation for imposing martial law (or whatever nefarious purpose they have), you better listen: those guys really know  their ‘crazy talk’!

Republicans are continuing their minority outreach efforts this month by introducing a bill outlawing non-English languages from being used in federal documents. When both Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) and Rep. Steve King (R-IA) tag-team an issue there’s no end to the buffoonery!

The teacher’s lament: Undergraduate History Illustrated, a Tumblr beyond the pale. ‘Nuff said!

It’s Easter-time, and a Pew study shows that 40% of Christians in America think Jesus will return within 40 years. So will somebody tell Israel their foreign aid funds are safe for at least that long?

‘Rack’ and ruin: Sarah Palin’s latest video rails against “the big consultants, the big money men, and the big bad media”, despite SarahPAC doling out more than $4.8 million to consultants, while only sending $298,500 (chump change) to actual candidates in the last election cycle. In total, SarahPAC spent $980,000 on ‘campaign expenses’ (the left pocket), $1.3 million on ‘administrative costs’ (including almost a million dollars on postage), and three-quarters of a million on ‘fundraising’ (the right pocket). A very common grifter indeed!
