Mitt Romney, Resistant Ghonorhea, Alien Mind Probe

By Notumbus Bumbus, published on Jun 7, 2012

Now, I cannot definitively prove, or disprove, that Mitt Romney isn't a secret unicorn using an alien mind probe acquired by Bain Capital in a hostile takeover that infects it's targets with resistant strains of gonorrhea. And that is precisely the problem, as the birthers have so well educated us on. One can have a suspicion, based on suggestions planted by various right/left conspiracies, that seem, well, probably on their face, but later prove to be, well, hard to prove. And when enough of that science stuff is finally discounted as biased against certain righter-way thinking, well, proof... (more)

Caveat Emptor - Mitt and His Numbers Game

By Notumbus Bumbus, published on Jun 5, 2012

Mitt Romney wants America to make him the next President, and the most compelling argument he seems to have is that, as a corporate raider, he knows how to make businesses successful. Thus, he is using the time-honored (by Republicans, at least) trope that people who have never run a business cannot possibly know how to run a government, conflating the two enterprises without an ounce of substance to the argument. Business, after all, is about profit for the shareholders, whereas government is about managing the infrastructure and defending the nation in the name of all its citizens, and thus,... (more)

Religion's Finest Hour?

By Notumbus Bumbus, published on May 22, 2012

Well, now that North Carolina has outlawed queer love, the floodgates of hell have opened. Let me be clear - I am not talking about a sudden increase in the number of gays entering the Flaming Gates, (though I am sure many flaming gates could do with a decent re-do, if you know what I mean,) but about the real faces of so-called Christians finally coming to light. Caught this little gem today from a wire story:

"Before the state's vote, Pastor Sean Harris of the Berean Baptist Church in Fayetteville instructed parents to use force if their kids start acting gay:

"So your little... (more)

It's The Economy - and It's Not Stupid!

By Notumbus Bumbus, published on May 19, 2012

Back in the Roaring '90's, for every straight-up software developer there were at least five who specialized in vaporware - "it's in the pipeline," "we launch v2.2 before Christmas," "our developers are just finishing the final testing phase." Ah, those were the days - IPO's fueled by pure rocket, uh, vapor. Looked fast, demoed hot, and always run by some man behind a curtain. Funny thing was, many of those demo's happened on Wall Street. What's funny about that, you ask?

Think about it for a second - if you were some hot-shot speculator, looking for software that would give you a leg... (more)

Self-Defense Works Both Ways

By Notumbus Bumbus, published on May 16, 2012

So some doctor comes out and says George Zimmerman got his nose busted and a couple of blackened yes after his confrontation with Trayvon Martin, and suddenly everyone starts to shout, SEE? We told you it was all Tayvon's fault. Er, nope. Sorry, that is not how forensics works, people. No one has ever said that Trayvon didn't try to defend himself against a guy who was clearly stalking him, with a gun. And I have said before that, if it was happening the same way, with myself being in Trayvon's shoes, you are damn right I would be hitting George Zimmerman with everything I had.

It apparently... (more)

Be Afraid Of Gay People - Be Very Afraid!

By Notumbus Bumbus, published on May 12, 2012

So, traditional marriage is now dead. Because the President said he is personally in support of the rights of gay people to get married. So, I wonder who he will be forced into a gay marriage with? And what about poor Michelle? Who will she be forced to marry, do you think? The real shocker will be what will Billy Graham, and Mitt Romney, and Rick Santorum, and Chet Ubetcha be forced to do on their Gay Wedding Nights? Now that traditional marriage has been blown assunder, all those bridal shops are going to have to start supersizing their gown collections, that's for sure! I shudder to think... (more)

The Chase is On - The 1% Never Gives Up!

By Notumbus Bumbus, published on May 12, 2012

So, JP Morgan Chase just blew $2B - that's bazillion to you 99%'rs - because they were trying to "hedge their risk" but, well, our bad! Hey, hey, hey, it's not like we're any different than Fat Albert, right? Now, to be fair, JPMC was not in on the first round of TARP, so maybe this is just late-to-the-party and such, but I really can't wait to hear the spin on this from the Repubs. They cannot legitimately blame The Black Guy in the White House, but you just know they're gonna give it their best shot!

Let's see if we can't help them get this party started!

So, JPMC lost all that... (more)

Bullies Remain Bullies for Life

By Notumbus Bumbus, published on May 10, 2012

So now we know that Mitty-baby was a gay-bashing bully. And yet, I am not surprised. While it does suggest that Mitt, like all gay-bashers is a secret "guy" liker, and too afraid to admit he likes "guys," such behavior is in keeping with the entire Republican Far Wrong ethos. "We will tell you how to live your life, but we want the government off OUR backs - not yours." So, consistency upheld, one supposes.

The truly pathetic thing here is the rush to defend his past by others, with not even the slightest attempts to disguise their hatred for certain groups that offend their sensibilities.... (more)

Gay, Straight - Worry About Crooked!

By Notumbus Bumbus, published on May 10, 2012

Well, here we are, and much earlier in the election season than one usually expects it. I am talking about the pointless distractions, of course. Everyone is getting their pantaloons in a snit over whether The Prez does or does not back gay marriage (and all this time, I'd been going on the assumption marriage was supposed to be a gay affair for all concerned. My bad!) But whether one believes that marriage is a right or a mere tradition is really of little concern. Whether we keep adding new jobs? Big concern. Whether we manage to get through the next year without new hostilities breaking... (more)

When War-Mongers Get Miffed About War

By Notumbus Bumbus, published on Apr 30, 2012

So Mitt and his Puppy Pac are in a snit, because That Guy in The White House is justifiably showing off his record to the Amurican Peeps as a part of this, what's it called again? Oh, right, an election campaign. For any who have conveniently forgotten, an election campaign is where you wallop the Other Dude/Dudette whilst simultaneously reminding everyone of what you have heretofore accomplished - at least those things you want everyone to remember, while at the same time trying to help everyone forget what you'd rather they never remember again. So when the Guy reminds everyone on how it... (more)
