Flute Toots and Personhood: Corporations are Zygotes.

Posted by Trixie on Saturday, February 18, 2012, In : Politics 
Look, as absurd as it is, we already know 'Corporations are People'...my friend. Friend? As though we are going to be staying in touch, but I digress. Did you know corporations may soon be zygotes as well? I suspect not, so allow me to explain:

The 'Personhood Amendment' seeks to change state constitutions to define a "person" with the verbiage "from the moment of fertizilation". That is, zygotes (fertilized eggs) are people with full constitutional rights. Some of the unfortunate side-effects...

Trickle-Down Economics, Rich Uncle Pennybags, the Debt Ceiling Debate, and You...in 15 minutes.

Posted by Trixie on Monday, July 18, 2011, In : Politics 
Have you ever known of a business owner to lay off employees because they couldn't pay their income taxes?

(And I am not referring to politicians and pundits here). Yeah, neither have I. And I expect that to continue. 

Since I could spew ad-nauseam on this subject (and I will in a moment), let's jump start the ...

Same-Sex Marriage Becomes Legal

Ok, on a serious note, remind me again how you measure a year? That answer is: 5 hundred 25 thousand 6 hundred minutes -- the same way everyone does...regardless of race, creed, or color. And now your sexual orientation. Need I remind you that "organizations" such as Westboro Baptist Church are more protected (per the U.S. Constitution) than the gay community? First Amendment rights and all. Fine, I get that. But, at the end of any given day, we all sit in the same lifeboat, and we need to ...

Literal Libyan No-Fly Zone, Multiple Personalities, and Moe Howard.

Posted by Trixie on Sunday, March 20, 2011, In : Politics 

Today the UN authorized no-fly zone over Libya went into effect, with the US, UK, and France primarily taking the lead. Canada is still deciding whether or not to join the effort. First they need to figure out if they even have an Air Force; and secondly, if the "no-fly" directive applies to them in the event they do. 

But for Libya it's not that complicated. Their message to the West is quite simple (in language we can understand): Remove from power The Dictator Formerly Known as...

"He that has light within his own clear breast May sit in the center, and enjoy bright day: But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts Benighted walks under the mid-day sun; Himself his own dungeon."

The Great Divide
Q: How many US states does the Continental Divide of the Americas pass through?

        4
       5
       6
       7

A: Six.


I answered five, and my friend starts heckling me.

"Ok, Captain Geography, name 'em."

"Alaska, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico."


Sigh, "I forgot about Wyoming. I always forget about Wyoming -- to me, it's as though Wyoming and Colorado are the same state."

Wyoming and Colorado

"Kinda like the Alfred E. Neuman equation?"

"What's that?"

"You know, how any combination of P...
