Not that I'm suprised.

I just like to point out your own hypocrisy.

Porn in the USA: Conservatives Are Biggest Consumers
8 of Top 10 Porn-Consuming States Voted Republican in 2008 Presidential Election

from ABC News.

A new nationwide study (pdf) of anonymised credit-card receipts from a major online adult entertainment provider finds little variation in consumption between states.

"When it comes to adult entertainment, it seems people are more the same than different," says Benjamin Edelman at Harvard Business School.

However, there are some trends to be seen in the data. Those states that do consume the most porn tend to be more conservative and religious than states with lower levels of consumption, the study finds.

"Some of the people who are most outraged turn out to be consumers of the very things they claimed to be outraged by," Edelman says.


The biggest consumer, Utah, averaged 5.47 adult content subscriptions per 1000 home broadband users; Montana bought the least with 1.92 per 1000. "The differences here are not so stark," Edelman says.

Number 10 on the list was West Virginia at 2.94 subscriptions per 1000, while number 41, Michigan, averaged 2.32.

Eight of the top 10 pornography consuming states gave their electoral votes to John McCain in last year's presidential election – Florida and Hawaii were the exceptions. While six out of the lowest 10 favoured Barack Obama.

Old-Fashioned Values

Church-goers bought less online porn on Sundays – a 1% increase in a postal code's religious attendance was associated with a 0.1% drop in subscriptions that day. However, expenditures on other days of the week brought them in line with the rest of the country, Edelman finds.

Residents of 27 states that passed laws banning gay marriages boasted 11% more porn subscribers than states that don't explicitly restrict gay marriage.


States where a majority of residents agreed with the statement "I have old-fashioned values about family and marriage," bought 3.6 more subscriptions per thousand people than states where a majority disagreed. A similar difference emerged for the statement "AIDS might be God's punishment for immoral sexual behaviour."

"One natural hypothesis is something like repression: if you're told you can't have this, then you want it more," Edelman says.

You people are pathetic and your views are utterly worthless. You are the problem in society. You are the social disease that's keeping the rest of us from moving forward.

How sad you can't see it when you look in the mirror.

Here's your new up and comer.

Jindal Admits Katrina Story Was False

By Zachary Roth

Looks like the game is up.

Remember that story Bobby Jindal told in his big speech Tuesday night -- about how during Katrina, he stood shoulder-to-shoulder with a local sheriff who was battling government red tape to try to rescue stranded victims?

Turns out it wasn't actually, you know, true.

In the last few days, first Daily Kos, and then TPMmuckraker, raised serious questions about the story, based in part on the fact that no news reports we could find place Jindal in the affected area at the specific time at issue.

Jindal had described being in the office of Sheriff Harry Lee "during Katrina," and hearing him yelling into the phone at a government bureaucrat who was refusing to let him send volunteer boats out to rescue stranded storm victims, because they didn't have the necessary permits. Jindal said he told Lee, "that's ridiculous," prompting Lee to tell the bureaucrat that the rescue effort would go ahead and he or she could arrest both Lee and Jindal.

But now, a Jindal spokeswoman has admitted to Politico that in reality, Jindal overheard Lee talking about the episode to someone else by phone "days later." The spokeswoman said she thought Lee, who died in 2007, was being interviewed about the incident at the time.

This is no minor difference. Jindal's presence in Lee's office during the crisis itself was a key element of the story's intended appeal, putting him at the center of the action during the maelstrom. Just as important, Jindal implied that his support for the sheriff helped ensure the rescue went ahead. But it turns out Jindal wasn't there at the key moment, and played no role in making the rescue happen.

There's a larger point here, though. The central anecdote of the GOP's prime-time response to President Obama's speech, intended to illustrate the threat of excessive government regulation, turns out to have been made up.

Maybe it's time to rethink the premise.

It's pretty clear and I really hope you can see this. It's not government that doesn't work. It's Republicans in government that doesn't work. Like Bush, who flew over the site days later, Jindal wasn't there till days later either. Worse yet, trying to take credit for something that he overheard. Disgusting.

What the fuck is wrong with you people?

So the new administration recently announced a bailout plan for Wall Street in the sum of about a trillion dollars through various things. After seriously fucking everything up, and I really mean fucking things up for everything, they’re complaining they don’t like the plan?

Really? You don’t like that plan that’s going to put a trillion dollars into the market after you have single handily fucked it up because of your greed and utter incompetence? You have proven once and for all that capitalism doesn’t work without regulations because humans (and especially those on Wall Street) are inherently greedy and must be controlled.

The concept to let markets take care of themselves because they’ll be able to regulate themselves is a fucking joke. That’s about as good of a plan as giving a crack head a bag of crack and telling him not to use any of it. Only ‘someone you can relate to’ would EVER fucking think that way. This is why you are not fit to the president of this country. This is why you don't want an average Joe to be the president. Congratulations to all of you that voted to have ‘someone you can relate to’ be the president for the last 8 years.

I don’t think you people understand how badly you’ve fucked up everything because of your greed. All for what? So you can go buy another plane? You’ve fucked up people’s retirement plans. Plans they’ve been working forward to for decades. In a matter of a few years you’ve managed to destroy it all. You’ve fucked up schools and charity’s funds so they can’t help those in need. Not only have you fucked the present, but you’ve fucked the future as well. That’s nothing short of impressive.

You’ve made the average people poor, and poor people in dire need. Sure, those of you that has millions has lost money too, but you know what? They’re not starving. So you can’t buy another luxury car or maybe not being able to fly first class (oh no!), but you know what, at the end of the day, you’re not starving. Because of what you did, you are causing actual people to suffer. Most of whom had nothing to do with this. I’m sure most of you on Wall Street are too self absorbed to care, but you are directly the cause of pain and suffering of so many people. Congratulations. Hope whatever bonus you got years before was worth this.

You’ve fucked up people’s sense of security in financial institutions because of your greed and you set up some bizarre standard that each company must constantly grow in profits or be punished. With these expectations, there’s no wonder companies would do whatever is necessary to meet you asinine and pretty much random expectations of growth. Ok, that’s a rant for another day.

Just a quick flashback. Do you remember when a certain president was pushing that we put all our social security money into the stock market? That would’ve work out well huh.

What’s worse is that not only do the people on Wall Street not really get it (still paying out bonuses last year to executives and still trying to buy a private plane), but there are people in the government who defends how these top executives does things.

There has been for a while and most recently a call to limit the compensation of top level executives in these Wall Street firms. These fuckers who have driven their company straight into the ground because of their greed and lack of morality gets paid ridiculous amounts of money. Instantly, you have most Republicans lining up to defend their compensation. That’s great. Not only that, why has no one argued to remove all these dumbasses from their office?

They obviously suck at their job. Look at their job performance. Who else can suck so badly, completely and utterly fail and still keep their job? Do these companies really have no one better to run them? Are there really NO one in their entire company or elsewhere that they can find to do a better job? If that is true, you’ve got some real problems.

I have worked with this population. I’m not just blowing this out my ass. I have had many banking and financial firms as customers. I know how it is there. No one is worth that much money. Period. I have argued so many times that they need to evaluate how these people are brining in so much money for the company. Everytime, I'd get my hands slapped for wanting to 'bother' these people.

This is a sector where high functioning psychotics and sociopaths freely roam, are feared, and rewarded to enforce their deep clinical problems. Unlike almost anywhere else in society where these types of behavior are frown on and medicated, this greed driven sector promotes and nurtures these people.

The point is. For so many years, so many people have pushed Wall Street and ‘Capitalism’ as the cure all for all problems. So many people thought Wall Street would be able to control themselves. Even though most people didn’t understand how Wall Street and financial firms actually made money, they put their trust (and their money) into Wall Street. We all turned a blind eye as to how they actually made money, and we refused to regulate them because they made money (once again, no one knew how), but as long as the profits were coming in, people didn’t care.

What you see today is the result of not asking questions. Not caring how people and institutions made money as long as they were making money. This is what happens when you waste your time trying to regulate individual people’s personal lives instead of worrying about real problems in society. This is what happens when you trust greed to do the right thing.

To all those people and families that lost people, pets and/or their home in this fire. Our best wishes goes out to you.

To all those hard working fire fighters and other relieve workers that's been working endlessly to contain the fire and help those in harm's way, I say good on ya. Get a well deserved beer after we get this thing contained.

To all those that's donated time or money, thanks.

According to the news, the fire is just at a midpoint right now. There are still about 24 uncontrolled fires burning right now. There could still be a lot worse to come as the home and death toll keep rising.
Here's to hoping they're wrong.
