Progressives Behaving Badly

Progressives Behaving Badly

Link: Link Here

Tony Snow, for what it's worth, is the mouthpiece of a pretty horrid Administration. But this post at DKos is full of "progressives" and "reality based people" behaving like Freepers.

It really is too bad.

And diaries like this and others are why black people avoid that place. Yes if you're not an athiest you're an unintelligent delusional person. I read it on Daily Kos so it must be true (that's sarcasm by the way.)

Like I said, it really is too bad. I'm debating changing my involvement there and looking for a new blog community to hang out at. Even though I already paid through the nose for the convention this summer...maybe I'll try to change it from within.

Too funny (and the entries on Harrisburg are a scream.)


Lofts in Harrisburg

While Harrisburg is essentially a small town, I think the city would be great with some lofts.

And it looks like this is occuring. RSR is putting some up on Market Street across from the Post Office. I had seen them advertising on Craigslist and they may very well be sold out by now.

But there's an even nicer building in the Midtown neighborhood that'd make great lofts. Or a co-housing co-op style building. It's the old Glass Factory at 3rd and Muench.

This building would make some cool lofts. Or since the neighborhood it sits in is still a little rough for the yuppies, a co-housing or co-op style building. The two side yards would make pretty cool little gardens. And there's parking. And I bet someone could retile part of the roof with solar panels. Home Depot sells them. (And yes I realize the irony of an oil company selling solar panels to consumers. But let's be honest, where do you think the capital is going to come from when it comes time to build these massive solar arrays to feed our energy needs?)

if only I had a few million dollars. I'd buy this place and fix it up and make some really cool ***affordable*** lofts.

A Conspiracy Theory for the Ages

Conspiracy! Was the Death Star Destruction an inside job?

Read all about it here.

1) Why were a handful of rebel fighters able to penetrate the defenses of a battle station that had the capability of destroying an entire planet and the defenses to ward off several fleets of battle ships?

2) Why did Grand Moff Tarkin refuse to deploy the station’s large fleet of TIE Fighters until it was too late? Was he acting on orders from somebody to not shoot down the rebel attack force? If so, who, and why?

3) Why was the rebel pilot who supposedly destroyed the Death Star reported to be on the Death Star days, maybe hours, prior to its destruction? Why was he allowed to escape, and why were several individuals dressed in Stormtrooper uniforms seen helping him?

Important questions, indeed. I demand answers.
