Whole boatloads of Awesome

If you’ve missed the ICP hilarity over the past few months, you can catch up here.

Shaggy 2 Dope: Come on, a rock that pulls metal towards it or pushes it away? Yeah, it has to do with the magnetic polar caps and [stuff]. But for real? Come on, man. You’re just holding a U-shaped thing that pushes metal away or attracts metal or something. The North and South Pole makes a rock magnetic, and if you touch a piece of metal with it, that becomes magnetic? That’s crazy.

Seriously, read the whole thing here, it’s great.

If you need inspiration…here ya go.  Miracles, motherfucker.

Senate Democrats to Kill Derivativesb Provision Pushed By Berkshire

Berkshire employees have given Mr. Nelson $75,550 over his political career, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Mr. Nelson owned between $500,000 and $1 million in Berkshire stock at the end of 2008, according to the most recent financial disclosure forms.

Mr. Nelson broke with other Democrats on Monday and voted with Republicans to prevent the Senate from beginning debate on the financial overhaul bill. He said his opposition was because of concerns about the bill’s impact on auto dealers and dentists, among other things.

“It’s groundhog day here,” said Sen. Christopher Dodd (D., Conn.), laughing, when asked about Mr. Nelson’s opposition vote, a likely reference Mr. Nelson’s role in the health-care debate.

Mr. Dodd said he was prepared to grandfather existing derivatives that have not been cleared, but he could not support waiving margin requirements for those derivatives.

“There are trillions of dollars in play that would raise risks again,” Mr. Dodd told reporters after the vote.

He said Treasury is working on language to see if there’s a fix “without exposing the economy to the kind of problems that you’d have with derivatives out there without margin requirements and position limits.”

Asked if Mr. Nelson’s “no” vote was because the Berkshire amendment was stripped out, Mr. Dodd told reporters to ask Mr. Nelson. But he did indicate it was the only issue he and Sen. Harry Reid (D., Nev.) discussed with Nelson during a tense-looking huddle at the start of the vote. “Dentists and auto-dealers did not come up,” Mr. Dodd said.


Once again the unified Republican opposition to legislation gives dickhead Demd more clout. Dodd’s final comment is hilarious.

He added that the market was the most powerful force to create opportunities and lift people out of poverty.

Spoken like a died in the wool commie-muslin.

Seriously though, I think this is, by far, a better strategy that the “bomb and convert” ideology of the Neocons.
