I’m writing for tomorrow, day 108. It’s been a busy day with heavy house cleaning and a grocery delivery. Tomorrow is a holy day in the Church of the Ellipsoid Orb. The Holy Orb is rising on a new preseason of meditation. I’m meditating in faith that my Broncos shall break the long fast with a communion meal of Pulverized Seachicken.

Today’s took me 3:16 (average 5:06). To do it click here. How did you do?
“This is a part of the war on whites that’s being launched by the Democratic Party. And the way in which they’re launching this war is by claiming that whites hate everybody else,” he said during an interview Monday with conservative radio host Laura Ingraham. "It’s part of the strategy that Barack Obama implemented in 2008, continued in 2012, where he divides us all on race, on sex, greed, envy, class warfare, all those kinds of things. Well that’s not true.”
Man, if it’s been waging a war on whites all this time, the Democratic Party is even less effective than I’d realized. Because whites are doing relatively well in this country. Sure, class warfare from above has been hard on the middle class, which was historically overwhelmingly white, so if you compare how middle-class white people are doing now to how they were doing 20 or 50 years ago, the picture is bad. But compared to non-white people? Whites are doing just fine, despite this alleged war on them.

From NY Times: The Obama administration is weighing plans to circumvent Congress and act on its own to curtail tax benefits for United States companies that relocate overseas to lower their tax bills, seeking to stanch a recent wave of so-called corporate inversions, Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew said on Tuesday.
Treasury Department officials are rushing to assemble an array of options that would essentially wipe out the economic incentive for the deals, Mr. Lew said. No final decision has been made.
“The question is, Can we do enough that it will materially change the economics of inversions so that companies will make different decisions?” Mr. Lew said in an interview. “The things we are looking at look to me like they could very materially change the economics of inversions.”
See How RepubliCorp Is Ducking Taxes. At the very least, Obama could disqualify such companies from government contracts and subcontracts.
From TPM: A third grade teacher in South Carolina called into Rush Limbaugh’s radio show on Tuesday to thank him for his children’s book, "Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims," which she used to teach her students about slavery and the Civil War.
ARGH! Limbarf as a teaching aid?!!? I was unable to find out which school has such misinformed students. That teacher needs to be stopped, then fired, and then committed.
