    Just had to log in to say: G-Zuz you’re a goddamn idiot. You keep spouting off like you’re some sort of genius when you clearly have absolutely NO grasp or understanding of this issue. Take a time out. This one is way, way above your pay-grade.

  • What’s “LG&M”? Really wish people would stop assuming with their abbreviations.

    It is currently not even possible to browse my.firedoglake.com via SSL.

    So THAT explains it! I was wondering why I couldn’t log in or post on my usual browser anymore. I suppose that’s why I’m also no longer to post on YouTube. Why would a site PREVENT SSL? I’m feeling a not-so-good feeling about the going-ons [...]

    The minute it becomes mandatory I am outta here quicker than you can say Huffington Post.

    I second that. Very sad to see all these sites doing this (the majority that I visit). It starts as optional and then almost always turns to mandatory because, “Only a tiny fraction of users were still using traditional log-in.” [...]

    These days people don’t see a good reason for having separate logins for every site.

    More and more people must be blind, these days.

    I hate Kings of Leon. Boring ass music trying desperately to recreate the heyday of the early 70s and failing miserably every step of the way.

    Appears Liberals have given up on this issue. Chris Hayes — who started his very first episode of Up declaring the Environment was his # 1 issue and he would be talking about that more than anything else — hasn’t done an environmental segment on All In in months. And he knows this shit’s going [...]

  • Why did Harrison Ford and Ben Kingsley — both fairly well known for being left of center and both having publicly stated their support for gay rights — agree to be in this movie (neither one is hurting for cash)? Not even knowing it was based on a book written by a bigot, I saw an ad for this film before Elysium and said to my girlfriend, “It looks like they got Harrison Ford to star in a made-for-TV movie. We’ll skip this one.” The FX looked terrible, the plot looked generic, the whole thing came off as hokey — turns out it was hokey based on the work of the homophobic.

    On the other hand, I’d recommend Elysium. Best big budget event film of the summer.

    Oh. Shoot. I forgot about this movie night and I had a bunch (well, three) of questions I wanted to ask.

    Very upset Michael Hastings is dead. How many courageous, honest journalists does that leave us with now? 3?

  • “Means testing” turns Social Security into a welfare program for the Very Poor(TM). WE all know what happens with THOSE programs, don’t we? I get really bummed out every time I realize how many otherwise smart Liberals/Progressives support this ridiculous idea.

  • He takes the most from Medicaid and Food Stamps — two programs used primarily by the very poorest in the nation. It is truly an assault on the poor. It’s also more Kabuki, as it’s obviously the MONSTER budget the Obama admin. can rail against, while creating a wicked bad budget that only looks “good” by comparison.

    Keep fucking that chicken!

    How is he for the “very poor?” I happen to be in that income bracket and he sure as fuck isn’t for a person like me. I had it easier under Bush — and I hated Bush.

    I posted this in the Faster’s Roundup, but it got buried at the end. Going to try once more here, in hopes of some of you actually seeing it:

    Okay, FDL’rs (or whatever we call ourselves), I created a grand video (coincidentally, the first video store to open up in my town when I was a kid was called, “Grand Video”) re: Obama’s 11ty-demensiony Chess. He’s actually doing it, it’s just that he’s playing for the wrong side.

    This video explains just how Obama is robbing the poor and middle-class blind, while successfully blaming the Republicans (who are no better, but only half as clever). It also exposes 2 Obamas through clips explaining sequestration — one from 2011 and one from 2013. I worked really hard on it and hope a few of you will at least get something out of it!

    I don’t know how to embed a video here, but I’m going to link. This is the only site I know of that can grasp that a person can be a LIBERAL and NOT supportive of Obama. I look forward to your feedback.
