It’s that time of the month again!

blogging-addiction

It’s been a while since we’ve had one…

Anyway, we know that we like being linked all over the web, and we want to give everyone in the blogroll some linky-luv. This helps improve your Technorati score (if anyone still believes in that), and allegedly it gives everyone a bump up in SEO authority. But mostly we like to do it because we don’t always get a chance to visit every blog on the blogroll every month, and we want our bloggers to know that we love them.

And as always, if you want to be added to the blogroll, drop me a comment with a link to your blog. The general rule is that if you link to MPS, we will link to you (unless your website is a commercial site selling products).

Happy Hour News Briefs

News that will drive you to drink

RNC’s Dave Agema is only trying to save western civilization from the Lavender Menace.

  • SOTU Reviews are in! -

    Last Tuesday, fraudulently elected President Barack Hussein Obama treated the American people to yet another empty and frightening speech. Not even eligible to be standing on the podium addressing a joint session of Congress for the State of the Union Address – as Obama is not a natural born citizen, as required by the Constitution, sired in the United States by two citizen parents – the socialist, anti-Semitic, anti-Christian and anti-white, anti-Israeli, Muslim-sympathizer-in-chief spewed forth a masterful performance, all the while ignoring the cancer that has metastasized in his administration – a cancer that threatens the continued existence of our severely wounded nation.

  • Redefining Xristian Xrazies - The man who thinks about hot, sweaty man-on-man sex with thighs like pistons that can pump all night, more than Lucky Pierre (the towel boy at the L.A. Mineshaft) Matt LaBarbra says that the gayz are trying to redefine Christianity to legitimize homosexual activism with “an agenda that includes sadomasochism,multiple-partner unions, and taxpayer funding for transgender surgery.” (One News Now)
  • What happens when you mix Twerp with Derp? - Free-range conspiracy theorist Glenn Beck was excited by the game last night and saw some divine intervention:

    Um, Glenn? Ken Hutcherson is dead (GONE, HUTCH GONE in 2013). So, unless you think He is Risen (and boy will that get you into trouble), I guess you need to keep up with your Wingnuttian Xristian Xrazie Heroes better.

The Day That Coke Lost Allen West

Allen West

…I am quite sure there may some who appreciated the commercial, but Coca Cola missed the mark in my opinion. If we cannot be proud enough as a country to sing “American the Beautiful” in English in a commercial during the Super Bowl, by a company as American as they come — doggone we are on the road to perdition. This was a truly disturbing commercial for me, what say you?

…and then there are the comments:

You liberals think that people who don’t like this commercial are racist or bigots. You only see this issue in black or white. We don’t care that people from other countries come here legally, but this country is an English Speaking country. This commercial supported illegal immigration and gay marriage. It is an agenda pusher. Millions of kids watched that commercial and don’t need to be seeing two guys roller skating holding hands.

This commerical is a disgrace. It does not represent America – It represents some international idea of an America that may be in the future though. IF we don’t manage to DO something now. Our ‘representative’ government went by the wayside about 5 years ago, for good.

Wow, I posted a similar remark as you Mr. West, within 10 minutes of this commercial airing. Like I said, everyone who was disturbed by this commercial, go out and buy you a Soda Stream and make your own Coke, just as damn good and we won’t be sending our money to a globalist company who has forgotten who made them what they are ;-)

America was settled by the English the first thirteen Colonies we all from England. We declared our Independence from England. The language spoken is ENGLISH! The immigrants that come into the country need to understand that we are an English Speaking and Founded Nation…We don’t give a rats ass about your Mexican, Muslim, or what ever you were when you decided to become an American Citizen you took the oath to be an AMERICAN leaving all allegiance to your former country and declaring yourself an American…Learn our language ENGLISH. When we Americans go to your country they expect us to learn your old language so we expect the same in return. If you dont like it take your ass back to your country and stay there—We don’t need you here anyway.

News you can use all day

(Petunia and Pals) The Dumb One wondered if Obama’s anti-Fox comments were planned to shift focus away from benghazi Benghazi! BENGHAZI!!1! and the IRS scandal.

  • Diversity! - Wingnuttia has their panties in a bunch (again? Always.), this time over a Coke commercial during the Superbowl that featured a multitude of people (some might be gay, even!) singing America the Beautiful in a variety of languages. So many hashtags on the Twatter, but “Speak American” was especially funny in a sick, sad world sorta way. (Liberaland)
  • Chuckles! - Yes, the TSA was laughing at your naked pictures as you went through the cancer-inducing porn tubes. (Raw Story)
  • Thanks Monsanto - Fewer Monarch butterflies than ever are making their annual migration to Mexico as herbicides and GMO crops are wiping out their food sources. (HuffPo)

RIP, Phillip Seymour Hoffman

Mr. Hoffman was found dead in his apartment in NYC, he was 46. The cause of death is not officially stated, but it looks like a heroin overdose.

Hoffman, I think, was one of the greatest actors of his generation. There was no role that was too big or too small for him to own. From Capote to The Talented Mr. Ripley, and of course Boogie Nights and everything in between, he made it all look so easy. Hoffman could make a (NSFW) dirty phone call in Happiness that was so cringeworthy it became high art:

Hoffman will be missed.

It’s like the third reel when the supposedly dead monster opens its eyes

Liz Cheney has a winning smile.

The most important Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs in our nation’s history, maybe ever Liz Cheney
has a winning smile.

Liz Cheney: I shall return

hours of confirming her plans to leave the Wyoming Senate race, Republican Liz Cheney gathered her aides and advisers on a conference call to thank them for their hard work – and to put them on notice for the future.

The former State Department official told her team that she had decided to end her campaign for personal reasons, the same explanation she offered the press. In private, Liz Cheney gave a clearer indication of her continuing political aspirations.

One listener recalled the candidate’s message, paraphrasing her words: “At some point, I will be running for something else. This isn’t the right time for my family.” A second listener confirmed the general message she expressed on the call.
