It involves taking the business reply mail envelope that comes with most unsolicited credit card offers, and sending it back to the banks with a message inside that ransacked hopes will help open “a dialogue.”
This isn’t really about running up the postage bill on the big banks, although that’s a nice side effect. The real effect of this is to force banks to react to us.
If they start getting hundreds and thousands of weird responses to their credit card applications, well they’re going to have to have meetings. They going to have to develop new procedures and every hour banks spend reacting to us is an hour banks don’t spend lobbying Congress on how to screw us. It’s an hour banks don’t spend foreclosing on our houses.
So I think that that’s progress.

In case you missed it, Jon Stewart was on The O’Reilly Factor Tuesday night to explain his reasons for agreeing to debate Bill O’Reilly. If you ask me, taking on O’Reilly will be easier than bullseyeing womp rats in a T-16.

DO NOT mention yours views on rape EVER, unless maybe your view is rapists should be punished more harshly, like maybe slowly castrating them by fire. But even then it’s probably best to just not discuss rape.
One of the best political ads I’ve seen this year.
The anti-science mentality of the right is disgusting. People so dumb, they lack the brain power required to recognize their own stupidity. As an American, I am embarrassed. As a human, I am pissed off.
I’ve heard too many people say they aren’t voting because Obama and Romney are the same. I’m sorry, but that’s cynical bullshit.
As Bill Maher said on his show last night there is no difference between helping your family and trying to heal the earth. The republican base continues to deny climate change is real and it is having disastrous effects on the planet.
I was recently asked to participate in the #govote campaign. I thought it was a fun idea, but I was having trouble figuring out how to reach the younger, hip voters. I thought for days about which icon best represents this new batch of voters, Bieber? Lady Gaga? One of those Kardashian things? Then it hit me, John Adams.
Cool as shit John Adams is just gonna wait here and judge you until you vote.
