Sheer brilliance.I can see Russia from my house!Man SNL is still great sometimes. I remember when Chris Farley and Adam Sandler left and it seemed like it would never be good again.It has seen better days, but it is still pretty good. Especially weekend update. Good times.
God I love Tina Fey. And Amy Poehler.I allways liked Tina Fey on SNL, but I think her true genius shines on 30 Rock. Which all of you should be watching, along with the I.T. Crowd, and The OFfice.
HAHAHA jon that was one of the best youtube videos I have ever seen.
Only the best for you guys.

Ya' know, Cory, I think I'm going to have to switch sides. I think I'm voting Republican.
ROFL! That video's awesome.
Wow, I'm not even touching that one. I think I would piss too many people off.I'm voting Democrat because I only think in absolutes.
Ok Ok maybe just one:I'm voting Democrat because I actually believe that China is a shining example of what we should be, income redistribution is a good thing, taxing the companies that create jobs even more won't increase unemployment, a universal healthcare system is great since the government did such a great job with social security and I'm sure quality won't go down the toilet, and I would rather pay more and more for energy and sacrifice our national security so that a minuscule population of animals won't be slightly inconvenienced by our extraction of energy even though studies have shown no adverse affects to wildlife are caused by it - I think it is fine that we are the only developed country in the world that refuses to harvest it's own resources because of the cries of a distinct minority.
You do realize that oil is traded on the world market and there's nothing that we could do to keep the oil companies from pumping it from our land and selling it to China? Well except large government regulation, but McCain's anti-regulation too, so we'll just trust that they give it back to us.And again the oil companies lease land larger than the state of Colorado, once that's empty then we can talk about ANWR. But doesnt this "drill baby drill" mentality strike you as any addict crying "just one more hit".And we drill all over the place in the Gulf already. If you listen to most Republicans it's like that whole area is totally empty and virgin territory for drilling.But then again, what could it hurt to add some more?China does not redistribute wealth how you are alluding to and most Democrats cant stand that we rely so heavily on China for anything. They out manufacturer us now and next year will be the first full year that they out manufacturer us for the first year ever.Tax cuts to large corporations hasnt spurned unemployment either.And if you dont want to buy into the government health system you dont have to and you can still receive a tax credit from the government to help lower your existing insurance.And social security works fine if the government quits dipping into the till to pay for other shit. But then again we have to since we are over 3 trillion dollars in debt now and borrow money from China to keep us afloat that and we are still spending over $5000 a second in Iraq, so that puts a damper on things we need money for.
If 75% of the American public wants to drill, don't you think they are going to pay damn close attention to where it goes?This is an Obama Quote:"If I am sitting pretty and you've got a waitress who is making minimum wage plus tips, and I can afford it (the tax hikes) but she can't, what's the big deal for me to say I'm going to pay a little bit more. That is neighborliness"No Barry, that is income redistribution. You don't set tax policy by "who can pay a little more", that is punishing the wealthy, and is the polar opposite of Capitalism. That is not how we became the most powerful country in the world. That is how we will whittle ourselves away from it.Universal Healthcare is a farce. The average waiting time in Canada is about 18 weeks. It's 5 or 10 years from complete collapse. It doesn't work. Health insurance is NOT a right, any more than Food is a right. If you want to hand out something to every American, you would accomplish a lot more handing them food than paying for their healthcare.Meh, I should have kept my mouth shut.Just eat your steak. The Matrix is telling you it is juicy and delicious. I'll keep my red pill to myself.
Jon - please insert non related link to hilarious youtube video diversion.: )
We've followed the model of taxing the wealthiest more than the poorest forever. This hasnt been a new invention. Hell why even bother tipping the waitress? Keep your money and invest it in Waffle House, I'm sure that will trickle down and raise her rate of pay - oh wait, that doesnt work.And you're right about Universal Healthcare, America is just too damn dumb to figure out how to make it work - no need to try. And the communities around here do hand them food, although the food banks are woefully understocked as of late and dont have that much to go around. I would blame this on people who normally donate being nearly broke themselves, but I'm sure it has more to do with those damn community organizers fucking things around.
Ok, last comment. I swear.My problem isn't that the rich pay proportionally more taxes, that is a no-brainer. My problem is targeting them with hikes. We need to raise them everywhere or lower them everywhere. Targeting creates the 'punishing success' effect. Look, we need to regulate some of the big businesses, especially the ones that are monopolizing their markets, but hiking taxes on an entire class by income is a bad idea. There are a lot of small to middle sized businesses that are already hurting that will be affected. I don't see how they will manage without further layoffs. And I always tip the waitress. Weiner.I think the issue with Universal Healthcare isn't that we are too dumb to figure it out. It is that other countries have tried and it isn't going well, and we need to learn from their mistake. We need to fix what is broken with ours, but this pipe dream that we can hand a plan to every American just doesn't fit. It may sound harsh, but it's reality. The more you ask from the government, the more they will take from you, in the form of freedoms and choices.Pretty crazy times we are living in...Blue Pill. I wanna be someone famous. Like an actor.
*makes crazy hypno-eyes*You will comment again.I love you Joel :)
Damn you! Make it stop!heheheMuch love, my friend.
In the event the wealthy get taxed more than the poor, doesn't mean the wealthy are going to become poor. They are still rich, but with an added incentive to help other people instead of themselves.I don't see anything wrong with that.
I also strongly believe; there is to much money in this world, for only one person to have.
Bleh. Change the subject. I'm getting hives. Also I think I might vomit soon.
lmao...Ever wonder what your name would be, if you were Sarah Palin's child?
ROFL!I would be:Luger Otter Palin
Joel.Its time to give up.The Thereminists are backing O-face.I am also going to start referring to him as "the Big O" while nodding/winking and making suggestive faces..I feel like I have let you guys down with the youtube video, its been busy at work today.. Here are two of my favorites.
I know its from /b/ but I still lol'd at this.
Oooo here is something political for yous guys.Magic: The Electioning!and Part 2Anyone listen to "The Flobots"?Their song "Same thing" has been getting alot of rotation in my mp3 player lately, along with "Handlebars"
I can guide a missile by satellite by satellite!
This just in:Apparently the little ghosts from ms. pacman made an appearance at a recent London fashion show. Wow. Fashion shows are weird.
Pac man Lives
That song is good cory, but have you listened to the rest of the cd?I would think "Same Thing" would be right up your alley.But the whole thing has a pretty "revolution music" sound to it.
Wacka Wacka Wacka Wacka Wacka!
Soulja Boy Tell'em reviews video games now!And if you haven't seen the video for handlebars, check it out.
Joel, Are you doing a pac man impression, or Fozzie the Bear having a seizure?
I love Ven Diagrams
Next topic please. Vote for your favorite:- Palin's email password ending up on /b/, and the media jackassery surrounding it.- Some microsoft thing, or apple thing- How fucking AWESOME warhammer online is going to be. Out today. Buying my copy and plan on not being at work tommorow.
I would rather hear Cory's opinion on Obama's recent Spanish ad that compares McCain to Rush Limbaugh (laughable) and then takes a Limbaugh quote completely out of context saying Mexicans are dumb and need to leave the country. Clearly more incendiary than anything the McCain campaign has done in their ad campaign - at least there was some (stretched) truth to the 'teaching sex to kindergartners' ad, when you look at the proposed syllabus.
Also, I would like to discuss someone at Microsoft secretly plotting to destroy the Windows Operating System product line with Vista so more people would start using Ubuntu. I think it was an inside job.
Yeah, Cory, I found this kind of interesting. If you go here, it'll take you to MyDebates. You can click on the "National Poll" tab at the top and check out how myspace citizens are voting. =)It's probably a little early, since this thing just came out, but it's still really, really strong for us.
Meh. Well I guess myspace is probably the most informed demographic of Obama's supporters. Hehehe. I mean, Hell... Matt Damon and Pam Anderson are their spokes people.Is there a myspace obama app? Oh God. Resistance is futile. Uncle! Uncle!
