We're having a rapture... again... really? And another satellite is falling? Maybe it is the end of the world as we know it?

Forgive me if I keep my plans for tomorrow instead of dropping everything to prepare for post-rapture looting this time...

Then again, we've also got a satelite falling, making today a "two-fer"!

Democracy In Distress: Today is the day when A Man Comes Around... Rapture 2011!
"Well, according to very few, that is. Personally, I'd be looking forward to a little looting, but I haven't been getting enough sleep the last couple weeks to feel up for the zombies that many others are predicting for today. Knowing life, that means zombies, surely.

I mock a lot, but this is why shit like this is actually very dangerous...

Pets Seized From Sonoma Co. Man Planning Pre-Rapture Killings May 20, 2011 11:57 PM

BOYES HOT SPRINGS (CBS 5) – On Friday night, animal control officials in Sonoma County seized three animals belonging to a man who planned to euthanize the pets ahead of Saturday’s predicted “Judgment Day.”
“I plan to put my babies to sleep when the earthquake hits Denver,” said Tinker who thinks that a massive world-wide quake will signal the beginning of the end. “I don’t want them to suffer.”

Now, on with the mocking."

Democracy In Distress: Heez'a comin' tomorraw?!? Really? The Rapture is on a Saturday? Naw.
 "Ah, shucks... I've got nothing to wear. Great quote from the billboard video: "This is how religion hurts people."

Now I know I shouldn't be mocking people's deeply held spiritual beliefs, but I have a hard time seeing this as really being a deeply held spiritual belief for most sane Christians.

Anyway, unless some words I said back in Assembly of God Sunday School back when I was in elementary school really do get me out of jail, er, hell for free, then I suppose I will be available for a good bit of post rapture looting."

Rubble: UARS reminds me of Mir... (Updated!): "This whole deal with the re-entering satellite reminds me of [Mir], or the Wim Wenders movie Until the End of the World, though with less risk of the world ending."

Analysis: Herman Cain's 9-9-9 plan would raise taxes on 84% of Americans

Daily Kos: Analysis: Herman Cain's 9-9-9 plan would raise taxes on 84% of Americans:

Cain's 9-9-9 tax plan would raise taxes on 83.8 percent of American taxpayers, most of the middle- and lower-income families and individuals. But while it would represent a new burden on most Americans, it would also be a massive tax cut for the super-rich.

84% would pay more under Cain's 9-9-9 tax plan - Oct. 18, 2011:

According to the Tax Policy Center, households with incomes below $30,000 would have, on average, between 16% and 20% less in after-tax income than they do today.

By contrast, households making more than $200,000 would see their after-tax income grow by between 5% and 22% on average.

oH HELLS YeAH! Generation X Is Sick of Your Bullshit

From 2011-05 (May)

Sorry for the french, but NO FUCKING SHIT!
Generation X Is Sick of Your Bullshit
"A majority of Americans say, for the first time ever, that this generation will not be better off than its parents." —New York Magazine
Generation X is sick of your bullshit.
The first generation to do worse than its parents? Please. Been there. Generation X was told that so many times that it can't even read those words without hearing Winona Ryder's voice in its heads. Or maybe it's Ethan Hawke's. Possibly Bridget Fonda's. Generation X is getting older, and can't remember those movies so well anymore. In retrospect, maybe they weren't very good to begin with.
But Generation X is tired of your sense of entitlement. Generation X also graduated during a recession. It had even shittier jobs, and actually had to pay for its own music. (At least, when music mattered most to it.) Generation X is used to being fucked over. It lost its meager savings in the dot-com bust. Then came George Bush, and 9/11, and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Generation X bore the brunt of all that. And then came the housing crisis.
Generation X wasn't surprised. Generation X kind of expected it.

WTF!?!?! Tea Party Nation asks businesses to stop hiring as expression of tea party solidarity

Daily Kos: Tea Party Nation asks businesses to stop hiring as expression of tea party solidarity:

'via Blog this'

Cut and paste because I can't type with fists....
Resolved that: President Obama has seized what amount to dictatorial powers to bypass our Congress, and that because the Congress is controlled by a Progressive socialist Senate that will not impeach one of their kind, they have allowed this and yielded what are rightfully congressional powers to this new dictator. [...]
Resolved that: The current administration and Democrat majority in the Senate, in conjunction with Progressive socialists from all around the country, especially those from Hollywood and the left leaning news media (Indeed, most of the news media.) have worked in unison to advance an anti-business, an anti-free market, and an anti-capitalist (anti-individual rights and property ownership) agenda. [...]
I, an American small business owner, part of the class that produces the vast majority of real, wealth producing jobs in this country, hereby resolve that I will not hire a single person until this war against business and my country is stopped.

On SNL (with Video): Rick Santorum fantasizing about gay shower sex (because I just can't say that enough...)

Livewire | TPM: Santorum: SNL Debate Sketch Was 'Bullying'
Rick Santorum found himself debating the rest of the GOP field from inside a gay bar over the weekend. Actually, that was just where SNL placed Andy Samberg as he was portraying the candidate in a sketch. Neither Samberg’s Santorum not the candidate himself were pleased with the placement.
In an interview over the weekend, Santorum claimed that the sketch was “bullying.” “We’ve been hammered by the left for my standing up for the traditional family and I will continue to do so,” Santorum said. “The left, unfortunately, participates in bullying more than the right does. They say that they’re tolerant, and they’re anything but tolerant of people who disagree with them and support traditional values.”

Class Warfare: Occupy Together Videos

I am sick of all the conservatives over the last decade whining about "liberals" trying to turn every issue into "Class Warfare."  Oh no, you can't say that, that's class warfare!

Well, guess what... This is what class warfare looks like.  Maybe if we had those discussions, for real, over the last ten years, we wouldn't have reached this point.
