commented on TD Ameritrade's Evil Ad: "Karen & Jeremiah"
@23 - the fucking was with the woman who put the jacket on his back and then threw rice. The fiancee found out and forgave him, but moving to the giant lawn was part of the deal, otherwise he never would have agreed to it.
Also it's a lie that they don't fight over money.

Wow that is a LOT of weirdness packed into 30 seconds.
By the way, TD Ameritrade was started by Joe Ricketts, who now runs American Crossroads, the Karl Rove affiliated super PAC. Ricketts still is a major owner of TD Ameritrade (last I checked he owned 12% of the company).
commented on Hey WCV... How's That Steve Litzow Endorsement Working Out For You?
I am not familiar with the history of who was let go or why. Maybe you can point me to some information? As an outside observer, I tend to conclude that where there is one person who will stab you in the back, there are likely to be others. Has WCV made any statement regretting or repudiating the actions of its ex-ED, or explaining why they should not be associated with him? As far as I can see, they treat this as just business.
I am also interested in WCV's strong advocacy of the Inslee campaign because the jury is still out here. If Gov. Inslee goes hard right, everyone who thought this campaign was really important will have been proved unreliable. We wouldn't even be able to say we were backstabbed, because the campaign message was pretty right wing all along. Veto any new taxes (except for beginning construction of freeways of course). Fix the economy by providing new tax breaks to beneficial corporations. Were we counting on him having had crossed fingers behind his back?

Is this April Fools? That airbag thing looks rather unhealthy for a person who is already up against the corner of the windshield.
I hear the new Hummer has a safety system that will automically roll out a concussion bomb which blows cyclists safely away from the collision. Well it's better than getting hit by a Hummer right?
(You know this is a troll because they stopped making Hummers in 2010, although I hear the military version is still around somewhere.)
