Government Hands Off My Farm Subsidies!


The Tea Party swept into the 112th Congress with promises of cutting government spending. But according to a report out today, at least five lawmakers with Tea Party connections have been longtime recipients of federal agricultural subsidies.


The biggest recipient was Rep. Stephen Fincher, a Republican from Frog Jump, Tenn.


While the self-described Tea Party patriot lists his occupation as “farmer” and “gospel singer” in the Congressional Directory, he doesn’t mention that his family has received more than $3 million in farm subsidies from 1995 to 2009, according to the Environmental Working Group.

Like many of their followers (who were on Medicaid, SSI, disability and gubbiment pensions.)

I would think these folks are making it really really hard for comedy and fiction writers.

gospel singer

wonder if he reports that income on his tax form.

Damn, man. Buy a fucking turtle or something.


we are getting the Red Faction SyFy movie screened for us tomorrow. will report.

If Nojo and Catt had babies <—- click the ellipsissssss

still trying to get my mind around the fact that there is a town called Frog Jump outside a Mark Twain short story.

@Capt Howdy: OH! OH! Please do! So fucking cool! Must text my kid! Really. He’s too busy studying and having a girlfriend and shit to pick up the phucking phone. Now I know how my parents felt when I disappeared. Oh, wait. They don’t like me all that much.

also posted the trailer for Saints Row in an earlier thread. watch it.

we just saw the extended version (wip) and its, well, longer.

I wish I wish I wish I could tell you some of the things they are considering to promote Saints Row. fucking hilarious and completely outrageous.

@Capt Howdy:

Seriously. Absent context, I’d have assumed that it was another placeholder name like “West BFE” and so on…

@Capt Howdy: The crotch punch? Is that a weapon? Is Joan Crawford in this?

@JNOV: Girlfriend, did you call your parents? When I was with my first vegetarian tantric boyfriend I did not call my mom. I was 18. He was awesome. And we were on a very long fuse.

@JNOV: Heck, I’m just amphidextrous.

@JNOV: If Nojo and I had babies, that would be one supermodel of a genuis kid, amirite?

@JNOV: kúlur mínar eru frystar en rassinn minn er glóandi.

@Snorri Haraldsson Uterus: Goddamitt! WTF‽ I’ll try to translate that shit. If you’ve already mastered whateverthehellthatlanguageis, Imma be pissed.

@Snorri Haraldsson Uterus: Your balls are frozen, and your butt is glowing‽ Gott!

Gratis blotta underswear skogen hoppare!

Oh, I think that means that there are free naked underswear (ugh) forest leapers. GIGO.

Fria blotta underkläderna skogen hoppare!

@JNOV: We speak the language of the gods not iGoogle.

TJ/News from Canada City Election.

It’s on.

Just donated some money to Iggy (double what I give over the year) in part because I’m stupid. In part because the more I read, the more I get pissed at PM Fatty.

Right now, the odds aren’t good. They weren’t good to begin with, but it’s not like I haven’t been on the side of Don Quixote and tilted my share of windmills. I prefer my leaders to have some fight and do something rather than bend over (like what Paulie Walnuts (Paul Martin) and Stephane Dion did in the last 2 elections which pissed off a lot of Liebruls Party types.)

Small blunder tonight by PM Rotund. In hockey terms, he dropped teh gloves on a one on one debate with Iggy, Iggy jumped at the chance and then PM Timbit backed off. That’s a gutless chickenshit move. I think in part because despite Iggy’s extreme lack of charisma, he’s a former prof with debating skills.

Plus the commercials are oot.

According to the Cons this election is about
1) Strong Leadership
2) Loooooow Taxes (for Rich people)
3) Human Trafficking…. HUH?

And how a vote for Iggy is a vote to open the gates of hell.

Human trafficking? Seriously? I don’t recall that one at all.

Where the fuck did that come from? I thought it was about over priced US America stealth fighters and the lies made to keep the details of the contract secret (and the whole contempt of parliament thing)?

Yeah, I don’t get that one. As much as I hated Harpers commercials, they were usually on point. Not these ones… they’re weak.

@Tommmcatt is with Karin Marie on This One: If Nojo and I had babies, that would be one supermodel of a genuis kid, amirite?

“Daddy Tommy, Daddy Nojo said God is dead so I don’t have to go to church.”

@Snorri Haraldsson Uterus:

Bumis my tingling but soon streams will run with the spring freshets

I see you almost have Google Translate down. How’s that blocked quote thing working out for you, Snorri?


@nojo: “Daddy Tommy, Daddy Nojo said God is dead so I don’t have to go to church. He also said I don’t have to get the seeds outta the weed. Roll your own, dammit!”
