They will get my computer-porn out of my cold, dead, very busy hands.
- Where's Waldo - The south american governments of Venezuela and Nicaragua have offered asylum to fugitive hacker and NSA contract employee Edward Snowden. This offer comes on the heels of the very ham-fisted way US allies forced the plane of Bolivian President Evo Morales to land and to be searched for Snowden. Coincidence? Some say no! (TPM)
- The on-going adventures of The Sequester - The national embarrassment of the sequester continues as the NYTimes shows us that it really is costing us a lot of jobs, even though the half-witted Congress has replenished funds for the most visible places where the cuts could be felt.
- Today in Ultrasound Rapesticks - Wall-eyed git and middle-manager of Koch Industries, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has signed into new abortion restrictions.

So Wingnuttia, how's that reaching out to women working out for you? (Raw Story)
