BAD TIMING...and an even worse reaction.
THIS IS WHY AMERICA STILL GIVES THE STINK-EYE TO THE SOUTH: It might be hard to find a man with less cajones that this guy at the moment.
LIFE IMITATES ART OF THE DAY: Mon dieu!
JUST FOR ONE DAY:
STANDING OVATION: We couldn't have said this better ourselves. For reals. We actually tried to express this in a conversation with our pals over here on Monday afternoon.
THIS IS RELEVANT TO OUR INTERESTS: Here at thenanigans we are tend to be progressive (with libertarian influences). Perhaps you've noticed. This article nicely summarizes one of the things we've been most troubled about over the past 10 years or so. It's not that we have a problem with so-called free markets. It's just that the rules of the game are skewed against people like you and me and rigged in favor of the new Oligarchs.
SIDE EFFECTS INCLUDE: This is the second installment in our series of side effects warnings for heavily advertised prescription drugs. For the record: we empathize with people who are suffering from some unfortunate conditions. But we have to wonder if the so-called cure might not be worse when there are side effects warnings that look like this and this and this AND this for just one treatment. YIKES.
THEN AND NOW: Perspective.
ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE? Twelve-step programs may be a thing of the past if this becomes the norm. Thenanigans knows from experience just how valid this kind of experience can be when it comes to changing behavior.
PASS THE MALT VINEGAR: We see what you did there. And we're laughing.
DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE: When is a grass roots movement not what it seems? When it's staffed and paid for.
