...and we wonder why public education sucks so bad in the good 'ol US of A and keeps getting worse. The problem is the 'public' wants to dictate what is taught in public schools and the public is stupid. Rinse and repeat.

Want to save public education? Take the public politics out of it.

Many joggers that run at night are smug assholes - I should know - I used to be one of them. But then I discovered the joys of smoking, drinking and fornicating and my quality of life, to the delight of those around me, has improved immensely.

The problem is that Gotye is Belgian. Nobody likes the Belgians - not even the a joke:

How do you keep a Belgian busy?

Put him in a round room and say there are chips in the corner. You could also give him a note with "see on the other side" written on both sides.

@2, Perhaps if someone butt-raped Paul Ryan, after putting a handful of corse sand in the lube bottle, one could easily argue that it was a "legitimate" rape. If he doesn't get pregnant it means his lady parts did their job. Somehow, I don't think Paul Constant would be the best guy for that job...

Anyone who is so concerned about the sex other people are having, which has no effect on their existence whatsoever, need to STFU. Period.

You know what would be great? If Dan and Prudie had a sex advice and relationship advice throw down on the Savage Lovecast. Perhaps another live charity event in support of...whatever. Although, I can't think of an appropriate musical guest for that one.
Jun 5, 2012 robwolf commented on Will Walker's 8-to-1 Money Advantage Buy Him a Win in Wisconsin?.
The problem of money in politics would disappear if American voters would stop basing their electoral decisions on television commercials. It is not like much of the money now flooding the political system goes to support large networks of grassroots volunteers, which would be an indication of popular support. Nope, the vast majority of that money goes to TV ad buys.

I don't think that the situation is going to change, and as a result we will continue get the leaders (and the ballot initiatives) that we deserve...
Apr 5, 2012 robwolf commented on Culture, Nature, and the Horrible Hyena.
This seems to be common with almost all of the Africans that I have met. A hyena is the worst thing one could be. My Kenyan colleague uses it as an insult. All the time he says, "I would rather live one day as a lion than one hundred years as a hyena!" Really, I think Disney was on to that little piece of cultural knowledge with the Lion King. I am sure that my Kenyan colleague would be sad to see all of the hyenas disappear - as would Charles - because they do fill a valuable ecological niche. On the other hand, all of you who can only see the literal and not the metaphorical in this can just STFU because hyenas totally suck!

@1 Especially not in France, where you can be president and have your wife and mistress (and the children you've had with your mistress) all appear at your funeral. While it leads a few raised eyebrows - it does not cause too much of a stir.

Sounds like "Le Perv" is in way deeper that we thought. If he could have kept it in his pants (or not have been caught with it out of his pants) he probably would have been the president of France after this next round of elections in May.
Dec 2, 2011 robwolf commented on Occupy Republican Nightmares.
The sad thing is, Luntz and his ilk succeed because they dumb things down to the lowest possible level, even though it smells of lies and rank hypocrisy. (Much worse smelling, by the way, than an #Occupy camp on its worst day!) If a majority of Americans are stupid enough to buy into it, then perhaps we have the political leaders, public policy, and country that we deserve.
