The (Video) Periodic Table of the Elements

This is quite possibly the KEWLEST thing EVER on the Web in the way of an instructional project: Explanatory videos about the elements. Here's "nitrogen."

MEGA-props to my El Paso pal, Kathy Mac, for finding the foregoing; and, lest we forget:

Max Blumenthal, Israel Apostate, Brings It To AIPAC

The Zionists are not the ONLY purblind, moronic, delusional fuckwitz around, but they are some of the most egregious. You don't have to vget past the first intyerview to figger out that these people are completely NUTZ!

I usta think the Russkis would crash the world before they'd abandon Stalinism/Leninism; then I worried the Boers would bring it down rther then truckle to the kaffirs. But I am almost completely CERTAIN the Zionists wouldn't scruple to violently irradiate the planet if they thought they were losing "Israel."

Bulletin: Bankstas/Brokas Covering Their Toxic Assets

This vid more or less synopsizes much of the information included on Taibbi's blog, but the read is far more complete, especially in terms of the crimes for which the Bankstas and Brokas might be liable
The questions Schneiderman will seek to answer are these: did the banks securitize loans they knew were fraudulent, throwing the rotten mortgages into the stew before serving them to customers? Did they also commit insurance fraud by duping the bond insurers (known as “monoline” insurers) into thinking the mortgages were not as risky as they really were? And did they participate in the fraud scheme on a more basic level by lending huge amounts of money to the Countrywides of the world, knowing that they in turn would immediately use that money to create the bad loans? In other words, did the banks finance the fraud in addition to brokering it?

Paul Ryan" Throws "Grandma" Off The Cliff

This is starting to get there, as a counter-discourses go. Is there the slightest chance that this would go viral? I hope so. Because the only to strike back at these wacktards and fuckoloons is through satire, humor and vitriolic mockery.

Colbert's "Word": Autocratic For the People

I invite you to imagine that, instead of the actual, odious, smarmy little shit-weasel you just watched, Benton Harbor were beset by, oh, I dunno, socialists?

Disaster Capitalism: Coming Soon To A Catastrophe Near YOU!

In 2007, Naomi Klein (finally) collected the insights which had troubled her and a LOT of folks for the previous generation or so about certain predatory aspects of the "post-industrial" capitalist sispensation, and published the results in a vlume which stirred up a hornet's nest of controversy then, and is STILL required reading if, for example, you want to try to understand why socio-economic conditions in such diverse places as Haiti and (now) the lower MIssissippi Valley turn out the ways they do. The firswt vid here is a kind of primer; the second is a whole hour of exposition and examples.

If that whetted your appetite, then you're ready for the main course:

Chomsky on the Intentional Dismantling of the University

Around 90 minutes; Noam doesn't generally use visuals, so you can just listen along while washing the dishes or painting the house. He's refined this theme quite a bit sincve I heard him first discourse on the subject 25 years ago, in Baton Rouge, where he excoriated the Academy for selling out to the DoD for the research money. If someone had tossed a serin-grenade into that room, that night, they'da depopulated the Mississippi River delta of all the "liberals" between Natchez and N'Awlins...

Motherhood: "Profound" Doesn't EVEN Begin To Touch It.

We hear often enough about, speculate upon, Blake's universe in a grain of sand. Well, here ya go.

Just over three minutes: close enough!

I completely lost track of the original FBFriend where I found this. Thankyou, thankyou, whomsoever you were--a mom, i'm betting...

Robins - 4 Eggs, 4 Weeks from Fred Margulies on Vimeo.

And this for my (late) Mom. If she were alive, I'd have sent it to her. She'd have laughed and laughed. Recuerdos, mama...

Barbara Ehrenreich on "Positive Thinking."

It has ALWAyS struck me that "positive thinking" was a scam developed by the Owners to psychically--but SELDOM materially--to "reward" the peons with spurious 'self-esteem' for willingly consuming the CorpoRat shit-sandwich they get handed; indeed, for apparently "liking" it: "Please, sir, may I have anovver?".
