      They made the head of the Secret Service a political nominee. Put it back in treasury where it belongs. Agents reportedly turned off the alarm to the East Room because it was "too annoying." It's like a bunch of interns are running the place. Oh, wait...

      And now this: they allowed an armed criminal on an elevator with the prez: http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/armed-former-convict-was-on-elevator-with-obama-in-atlanta/2014/09/30/76d7da24-48e3-11e4-891d-713f052086a0_story.html Alex, you might be onto something. There was pressure a few years ago for the SS to have more women. If a woman can meet the physical requirements to defend the President's life, fine. But that should not be the priority.

      I've never once understood how the treasury dept ended up with this gig and kept it. Logically it should either be under one of the military branches, the FBI, or the Federal Marshall.

      Funny you should bring up electricity costs SO, because my consumption over the last 6 months compared to the year before is down by almost 20% overall, yet my monthly payments, also compared to the same period the year before, have gone from being 10% to almost 20% higher. In short, my consumption has gone down but I am paying more than I did before when I used more energy. I plan to go look at bills from 2 and 3 years ago, I kept these for some reason, and I bet that trend will prevail there. The People's Republic of Connecticut has been one of the states that has pushed the Obama Administrations green bullshit agenda the hardest, and the fact that I have paid more to usel less, shows what they have been all about. In the mean time Man Bear Pig is jetting around telling us peons we need to get back to living in caves after 80% of mankind is culled.

      Incompetence at the top has percolated down to everything it comes into contact with. This is just another sign of the times.

      This is the same line of crap that has utilities getting their panties in a twist due to the ever-increasing, but still small (around 4%), solar power solution that people are installing like fucking crazy in certain locations. The government frequently set up laws decades ago favoring a specific monopoly to provide electricity and maintain the infrastructure, but also have to contend with newer laws favoring the installation of what directly competes with the previous monopoly, complete with demands that they buy excess power at market rates, but don't have to help in maintaining the infrastructure. Who loses? Pretty much everybody in the end. Electricity rates continue to go up to cover the cost of maintaining an expanding grid that new micro-producers aren't paying for. Also, the various tax breaks and subsidies are going to expire soon (another government meddle) so those late to the bandwagon aren't going to get the various handouts of tax dollars to supplement their electric bill. Not to worry, there will be more coming in the near future without a doubt.

      They should be meeting right now either to give the President the authority to attack Syria or to refuse it. And if he won’t comply, they can exercise the power of the purse to cut the funding. Hey didn't they try that on other items? Hmmm let me think. Yeah how did that go? Who backed 'em? You? Maybe it's not the President that's all fucked up (even though I think he is), nor Congress. Maybe just maybe it's people who bitch and complain over and over again, but will run for the hills as soon as someone in Congress takes a stand on that very issue people were just complaining about. Taking a stand causes tension, you have to force the hand of the other party in the mix which requires holding something hostage, whether it's the budget, a vote on another important item, or something else of at least perceived urgent importance. That method of negotiation is even more important when you're in the minority of power. The American people don't have the stomach for it. You don't have the stomach for it. Let's be honest here. Every Goddamn time someone has stood up in the last 6 years...

      Actually making decisions isn’t a good thing during a close-term election cycle. Best to shut up until the morning AFTER that Tuesday in November. This is what we're told. But there's always an election coming up. And lots of congressmen have lost their seats by making hard choices. Are they there to do things or are they there to be re-elected? I think we know the answer.

      I only have about 1500 comics and haven't bought any in over 10 years, so I may not be an expert in current trends. However, I think that Marvel was just expecting to produce a product that people might want to purchase. They hired a well known artist to do something that they have been doing for 20 years. Are we now to expect the heckler's veto every time we do something? Personally I find most superheroes to be anatomically impossible. Someone else may find it sexy. Should they not have the right to purchase it? If they didn't think that it would sell, Marvel would not have produced it. What they didn't expect was the wrath of the internet offense brigades. While in the past this may have got some crap from a few people, they didn't expect it to be an Attack on All Women. To be honest, did that cover really deserve the amount of attention it got?

      He was still a crap attorney general. As long as you define "crap" as meaning criminal, then yes, Hal. The thing is that he was not just bad, he blatantly played defense for a criminal administration, engaging in a lot of criminal activity of his own either in the process or simply because that's who he is. No republican administration would ever have been allowed to pull even a small fraction of the illegal and downright criminal shit that this DOJ has been and continues to do. The left is despicable.

      Oops...again... http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2014/09/26/obama-praised-muslim-cleric-who-endorsed-fatwa-against-american-troops/ During his United Nations address, President Barack Obama went out of his way to heap praise on a particular Muslim cleric. The ideology of ISIL or al Qaeda or Boko Haram will wilt and die if it is consistently exposed, confronted, and refuted in the light of day. Look at the new Forum for Promoting Peace in Muslim Societies – Sheikh bin Bayyah described its purpose: “We must declare war on war, so the outcome will be peace upon peace.” A fine sentiment, but one that Sheikh Abdallah bin Bayyah probably does not mean in the way that Obama thinks he means it. The Washington Free Beacon first noticed the reference to bin Bayyah. It turns out, that President Obama’s exhibit moderate peaceful Muslim backed a fatwa in favor of killing American troops in 2004, in Iraq. You can't make this shit up.

      And yet he still won’t actually be accountable to anything, will he? No, in all likelihood, he’ll write a self-congratulatory book, make the talk show rounds to promote the book, make millions, and become another celebrity. He might wind up in with a high-profile teaching position at some lofty Ivy-League university. Or become a highly-paid talking head at MSNBC. So sooo this. This is exactly what will happen. All the shitwits out there are saying he was criticized because of his race (as opposed to Ashcroft and Gonzalez, who we *never* criticized. Ahem). I don't care if Holder was purple with pink polka dots. He was still a crap attorney general.

      And yet he still won’t actually be accountable to anything, ^^^THIS^^^ This guy should not have been allowed to just resign: he deserves to be wearing an orange jump suit and be put to work making license plates for a few decades. Then again, most people in the Obama administration should be right there with him, and won't be. Next time you hear theses scumbag leftists complain about some fictitious abuse of power or criminal activity from the other side, remember that they are, as is practically always the case with these criminals, just projecting.

      Can we put this in the "no shit" category? - http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/news/2014/09/26/official-70-families-from-immigration-surge-never-showed-up-for-follow-up/ Tens of thousands of young families caught crossing the border illegally earlier this year subsequently failed to meet with federal immigration agents, as they were instructed, the Homeland Security Department has acknowledged privately. An official with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement revealed that about 70 percent of immigrant families the Obama administration had released into the U.S. never showed up weeks later for follow up appointments.

      I believe he is the only cabinet member to be held in Contempt of Congress for his role in Operation Fast and Furious. He also dropped the investigation into the New Black Panthers, declined to prosecute any of the people responsible for the financial crisis, led monitoring of the media including James Rosen, continued to persecute medical marijuana clinics and helped preside over one of the more lawless administrations I can remember. And yet he still won't actually be accountable to anything, will he? No, in all likelihood, he'll write a self-congratulatory book, make the talk show rounds to promote the book, make millions, and become another celebrity. He might wind up in with a high-profile teaching position at some lofty Ivy-League university. Or become a highly-paid talking head at MSNBC.

      No worries, guys. Al Sharpton is on the case - http://www.businessinsider.com/al-sharpton-says-hes-helping-pick-the-next-attorney-general-2014-9 The Rev. Al Sharpton said his civil rights organization, the National Action Network, is "engaged in immediate conversations" with the White House as they work to name a successor to Attorney General Eric Holder, who is set to announce his resignation Thursday afternoon. "We are engaged in immediate conversations with the White House on deliberations over a successor whom we hope will continue in the general direction of Attorney General Holder," Sharpton said in a statement. Cause you know, when someone is finally forced to resign in disgrace after many scandals, continuing in that same general direction is definitely where you want to go.

      The long webbed armpit hair is what gets me. So sexy. Other than some impressively flexible neck muscles, that pose is definitely anatomically possible.

    • On Monday Roundup, Iconoclast said:
      The pose is ridiculous, unsexy and anatomically impossible. I think the point being widely missed by all concerned is that these superheroes are part spider, or at the very least, trying to act like a spider. But, for better or worse, they still have human limbs, so making them crouch like a spider results in supposedly "sexy" squatting poses with legs spread wide. Regardless, for me, the idea of copulating with a spider wannabe doesn't really have much appeal...

      I am very familiar with the 'medium (I own around 3,000 comics) and I say this about the cover : 1. The pose is ridiculous, unsexy and anatomically impossible. 2. Of course Marvel should have known what to expect when they hired a soft-porn artist to do the cover. That doesn't make the cover good. If you want a sexy, powerful woman in comics, have a look at Azzarello / Chiang's Wonder Woman series that is just now coming to an end. https://www.google.com/search?site=&tbm=isch&source=hp&biw=1366&bih=599&q=coipel+wonder+woman&oq=coipel+wonder+woman&gs_l=img.3...1729.7363.0.7673.23.10.0.12.12.0.413.1590.2-3j1j1.5.0....0...1ac.1.54.img..18.5.1584.5Y1hF0r7ykc#tbm=isch&q=chiang+wonder+woman And I am aware of 'gamergate' and the losers that been spending waaaay too much of their time harassing a couple of women because.....actually there is no 'because' apart from 'having ladyparts' there is no reason that justifies the ridiculous conduct of these boys.

      So China made Obama look like a fool...again. http://www.foxnews.com/world/2014/09/24/climate-change-china-rebuts-obama/ The basic jist is this - all of you believers of curbing evil Co2 to save the planet from climate disruption/change/warming/whatever can give up your aspirations because the largest Co2 producing country on earth just told Obama to shut the fuck up. They want Western Countries to pay China (and other "developing" nations) for curbing greenhouse gases. Oh yeah, China also wants us to abolish intellectual property laws so that they can do whatever they want in regard to manufacturing (not like they don't already do that).

      The cover is still going forward. And this is what you get when you hire a porn artist to do a cover - a porn shot of Spiderwoman. And in 6 months it will all blow over, just like it has every time since the 70's when this crap popped up the first time. It's like they are on a timer - "shit, has it been five years already? time to go protest that comic book girls all look like porn stars again." Hell, it's been about twenty years, and they still stuff women in the fridge.
