April 19




It's not enough that they won't tell us what is in the fracking fluid, or that they may be poisoning the watershed and everyone with a well in the area may no longer be able todrink their water, but now they came up with this BRILLIANT and CUNNING plan to destroy our tap water:

Opponents of a proposed natural gas frack water recycling plant in Warwood inundated City Council Chambers Tuesday in hopes of keeping the facility out of their neighborhood.

Last month, Houston, Texas-based GreenHunter Water announced plans to build a treatment facility for fracking wastewater at the former site of Seidler's Oil Service on North 28th Street, located just over a mile upstream of Wheeling's water treatment plant, where the company plans to be working by September.

Dave Cupp, who owns a business on North 28th Street, said he is in favor of job growth, but not at what he sees as the expense of the public's well-being.

Why, nothing could go wrong with a fracking treatment facility only a mile from the intake for the water treatment plan that serves the entire region. Smashing good plan, chaps!

I'm speechless.


The Ricin letter-writing suspect was an Elvis impersonator:

Through decades of dead-end day jobs, Curtis's mainstay has been night and weekend gigs as a celebrity impersonator. He has dressed up and performed at weddings and at parties as Prince, Buddy Holly and Kid Rock, but most often as none other than Elvis Presley — not just anywhere in Mississippi, but in The King's native Tupelo.

Curtis and his family and friends have, over many years, amassed a library of videos and photos, many posted online, that show him singing and dancing with a distinctive curled upper lip and thick sideburns.

In one online profile bearing more than 800 photos of himself, Curtis typed this in his biography: "Father/Activist/Singer/Songwriter/Business Owner/Rebel."

Having maintained a public silence so far, Andy Parrish referred questions Wednesday to his attorney, John Gil­more, who said his client will corroborate allegations from another former Bachmann aide, Peter Waldron. Waldron, a Florida pastor, claims that the campaign hid payments to Iowa Sen. Kent Sorenson, in violation of Iowa Senate ethics rules that bar members from receiving pay from presidential campaigns.

Until now, Parrish has been identified by the committee only as "Witness A," Gilmore said. "The time has come to confirm that 'Witness A' is Andy Parrish, and he'll be providing an affidavit with supporting material that completely supports the representations previously made by Peter Waldron," Gilmore said. Sorenson has vehemently denied any wrongdoing, calling the ethics charges "totally baseless, without evidence, and a waste of Iowans' time and money." Lawyers for the Bachmann campaign also have denied the allegations.
If the name Andy Parrish seems familiar to you, it's because he was also the campaign manager for the NOM-affiliated Minnesota For Marriage. You may recall that last summer Parrish published Levitical calls to murder homosexuals on his Facebook page only to late claim that he'd been hacked.

For the last 36 hours or so, wingnut sites such as World Net DailyFox NewsBreitbart, Glenn Beck's The Blaze, and Pam Geller's Atlas Shrugs have claimed that President Obama has struck a super secret deal with Saudi Arabia to spirit that 20 year-old Saudi kid out of the nation under the guise of deportation in order not to embarrass "Obama's Arab buddies" when the kid's membership in Al Qaeda is revealed. Top federal officials have repeatedly debunked the story, but the facts have never mattered in Teabagistan, where this latest bit of batshittery continues to draw thousands of outragedcomments.



"That's the beauty of a six-year term." -Senator Jeff Flake on his filibuster of background checks

Right. The beauty of a six-year term is that Americans may forget over the next five years that you chose to screw them.

This is as cynical as it gets.

Considering Flake's reported close, personal friendship with Gabrielle Giffords and Mark Kelly, his nonchalant dismissal of political consequence is the epitome of dickish quotes.

I realize math is beyond a Teabagger's grasp but Bush lost 3,000 Americans AFTER  HE WAS WARNED and Obama lost 3 with no warning at all.

In Teabaggerland, losing 3 is worse than losing 3,000.
