Excellent read: "In many ways, Gold's tale of disillusionment is a familiar one. There are plenty of veterans of Reagan and Bush 41 around town who believe Bush and Cheney trashed the institutions and party they helped build from the wreckage of the Goldwater campaign. But there aren't many who have been on a first-name basis with those they believe are doing the trashing. There aren't many like Vic Gold."

And what does our president do when those checks and balances get in the way of him getting his way? Recess appointments!

"Today, a small group of dermatologists and neuroscientists are starting to look at the biological mechanisms that lie behind itching. As they do so, they are finding curious overlaps between itching and that different-seeming sensation, pain. Though sometimes pain is itching's opposite, the latest findings are showing more and more similarities between the two."

You know, I am getting the impression that you are not a conservative Republican.

There are totally parts I totally agree with them on. Seriously.

On the other hand, no, I am an independent, and proud of it. Because all sides suck equally.

I have also been a Communist, but only for comedy's sake. And I never technically joined the Scorched Earth Party, but, tempting.
