When a picture really IS worth a thousand words

 

Rick Perry at first wouldn’t meet Obama on the tarmac at the airport. Finally saw some wisdom in doing that,…. or the petty that not meeting him would show.

Just really wanted a meeting.

Obama says,…. “Sure, let’s do that”

 

And then this -

Just beautiful,…… thanks Ricky old boy.  The republican “keystone cops” comedy relief go to guy.

The South’s Gonna do it Again,.. and Again

Who woulda thought…. conservative governors know their stuff.

That looks like some consistent policy results.

John Oliver on the climate change debate

Explains what a “fact” really means,… with a little help from Bill Nye the Science Guy and some friends.

 

I’m more and more amazed

The stupidity just keeps coming.

It seems endless.

I suppose murder is good for the economy, … it makes work for cops, detectives, forensic specialists, funeral directors, and many more.

A boon.

It’s dirty work, but …

Pipeline builder says oil spills can be good for the economy

Cleaning up the Kalmazoo River
Mic Stolz
Kinder Morgan’s idea of job creation.

Kinder Morgan wants to spend $5.4 billion tripling the capacity of an oil pipeline between the tar sands of Alberta and the Vancouver, B.C., area. Yes, the company acknowledges, there’s always the chance of a “large pipeline spill.” But it says the “probability” of such an accident is “low.” And anyway, if a spill does happen, it could be an economic boon.

“Spill response and cleanup” after oil pipeline ruptures, such as the emergency operations near Kalamazoo, Mich., in 2010 and in the Arkansas community of Mayflower last year, create “business and employment opportunities for affected communities, regions, and cleanup service providers,” the company argues.

Those aren’t the outrageous comments of a company executive shooting off his mouth while a reporter happened to be neaby. Those are quotes taken from an official document provided to the Canadian government in support of the company’s efforts to expand its pipeline.

 

It’s a bit like claiming cancer caused by nuclear accidents can be great because it provides work for oncologists. Here’s more from The Vancouver Sun:

Cliven Bundy raises the public awareness

Thanks, Clive old boy,…. you’ve really helped the cause.

Just not the one you intended.

Ripped off unapologetically from   at  http://www.balloon-juice.com/   –  (please give a visit)

I don’t think she’ll mind.

This, – (although not a “real” craigslist thing),  –  says it all about our conservative buddies and the “heroes” they choose.

 

As seen on Craigslist:

Tea Party Folk Hero Wanted

It does bother me though that they keep finding these types.

They’re not uncommon. ……….. Very, very troubling.
