America is Giving Up: Why Geithner and GE CEO Must... →
General Electric earned more than $14 billion in profits last year. They paid ZERO federal taxes. In fact, the government GAVE GE more than $3 billion in tax credits. So General Electric is basically a corporate welfare king. But it gets worse. Not only did they pay zero taxes. Not only did they get $3 billion back from you and me. GE has slashed nearly 20% of its American workforce. So for all...

The new leader of Libya’s opposition military spent the past two decades in suburban Virginia but felt compelled — even in his late-60s — to return to the battlefield in his homeland, according to people who know him. I’m sure this and Obama’s secret order to secretly arm the Libyan rebels in secret has absolutely nothing to do with the CIA.

Eschaton: Same As It Ever Was →
It would be nice if reporters would recognize that the Tea Partiers are just the same tribal 27percenter social conservative Republicans that we’ve always had with us. They don’t give a shit about “fiscal issues,” and they never did. They might care about tax rates, but they still want their Medicare. They care that their perceived tribe is not in charge, and are animated...

Wil Wheaton, a Star Trek: The Next Generation alum, is a canny choice for narrator of this intersection of science fiction and Elmore Leonard-esque Hollywood farce. In addition to being a rather prominent footnote in sci-fi history, Wheaton’s also got a great voice — sonorous, with an inflection similar to a late-night radio DJ who’s bemusedly sharing an anecdote on air between tracks. His...

A Marvel Universe Primer →
When I was a kid, I was a DC Universe guy all the way, with rare forays into X-Men books. I realized last week, though, that the DCU does absolutely nothing for me these days, and I’ve stopped reading DC books, even Batman, which I don’t even recognize at the moment. The Marvel Universe, though, has been blowing my mind and pleasing me greatly for at least the last year. I’ve...

The manipulative pro-war argument in Libya →
“What I cannot understand at all is how people are willing to believe that the U.S. Government is deploying its military and fighting this war because, out of abundant humanitarianism, it simply cannot abide internal repression, tyranny and violence against one’s own citizens. This is the same government that enthusiastically supports and props up regimes around the world that do...

Davros, the evil leader of the Daleks and one of Doctor Who’s most formidable opponents, has endured his fair share of intergalactic struggles. But now the mutant megalomaniac is at the centre of a very different kind of battle here on Earth. A lifelong Doctor Who fan claims he dreamt up the character when he was just 13, and is suing the BBC for breach of copyright. The best part of this...
