|Episode of rigged quiz show|
In 1957, $140,000 was a shitload of money.
Also, he would have had to pay an 81% marginal tax rate on it.

Get your fingers a little closer to that, why don't you?
|Unions are Destroying Jobs - Lamar Alexander|
Yeah, the Senator from Boeing is right. We don't need unions anymore because everyone makes a living wage with rights and benefits and such.
Even with worker productivity skyrocketing over the last 40 years while real wages remained stagnant and pensions and benefits were mostly eliminated, you really can't expect corporations to run profitably if they have to bargain with workers (or pay taxes or comply with environmental laws and other regulations, but that's another story).
You certainly can't hold the CEOs responsible...those poor bastards have had to make due with just a 400x pay increase over those same 40 years.
He fully realizes the inherent amusement in the situation, and gives a little smile himself at 1:12.
Also, he looks a little like Napoleon Dynamite.
|Porn at the Denver International Airport|
It's truly difficult to take him seriously after he identifies himself as the Third Eagle of the Apocalypse.
Also, imagine how this guy sees the world: anything longer than it is wide is a penis, and every cup, hole, or vee shape is a vagina. It's like he has the x-rated version of the glasses from "They Live".
|3 Days later, Ann Coulter says what she'd do if her kid was gay|
The LCR are for "civil marriage equality" but stress that the Gov't cannot force religious marriage equality; that is, churches are free to refuse to perform same-sex ceremonies. I could not find their stance on church-funded schools and hospitals discriminating, but it sounds like they'd be okay with it. So yeah, they sound like Libertarians.

|Iowa State Senator Hammerlinck tells visiting students to go home|
And what's even more fucked up about this is that those students were *invited* there specifically to give feedback. Hamerlinck (one "m") shows them nothing but contempt.
The students were invited to the Capitol as part of “Open Budget Hearings.” The goal of the hearings was to hear feedback from Iowans impacted by the proposed budget cuts, including the effects of what some have described as the Republican’s “two-year starvation diet for Iowa schools.”
The students testified that the Republicans’ proposed budget cuts making higher education unaffordable for many students and their families, increase class sizes, and reduce course offerings.
Michael Appel, a student at the University of Iowa who spoke at the meeting, says, “It’s important for everyone to have a voice when big decisions that affect thousands of individuals are taking place. Today was unfortunate; it was a rude display of behavior by a state leader. In these difficult times, it is important for all to be respectful and hear each other so everyone can make educated decisions, which is why Executive Council of Graduate and Professional Students will continue to communicate with all state, community, and student leaders throughout this year.”
|Miami man films police shoot with cellphone|
It doesn't appear to be that cut-and-dried, charmlessman. Read some more recent articles.
The guy was a drunk driver who refused to stop for police, so a dozen officers fired more than 100 bullets at him as he sped down the street. By the time the video starts, the car has four flats and is stalled and motionless, and the police had already shot the car many times. At least four bystanders and three cops were hit. (If that's proper police procedure, they must have a different one for when white people are involved.)
There's no confirmation yet that the driver was firing out his window; the police couldn't even initially find a gun in the car, but after a few days of searching, one just turned up! (I assume we'll eventually hear whether that gun was fired recently and whether the bullets can be matched to the bystanders'/cops' wounds.)
The police themselves say only one officer was "struck by the car", which could be cop code for "the side view mirror brushed his hand", for all we know.
That is all a long cry from "legit", in my book, sorry.

Maybe you're supposed to spin it up, stand around it in a circle, and then toss a ball onto it.
|Happy Atheist Father's Day|
Wow, for a minute there, I bet all the atheists felt real guilty about making God feel bad on Father's Day!
(Also, if you squint a little and imagine these two guys are Randy Quaid and Ben Affleck, it's ever so much better.)

I also like how Miss America assures everyone that she is a "good conservative" even though she did admit to watching Sesame Street.
