Joe Cocker, RIP

Intense rock singer Joe Cocker has passed away at age 70.

I loved his soulful, often frantic music. Here's my personal favorite (really dig the piano of Artie Butler):

And here's a lesser known tune, which features a curious dig at trade unionism (third verse: "You can stuff your trade Union bull-shit up your kyber/But you can't have my soul/Cannot have my soul today").


Your go-to post for ammunition in dispelling the myth that 97% of scientists believe climate change is man-made and dangerous.

Roger L. Simon, a former leftist who made the journey to the right years ago, locates the seat of racism in American society today, and it’s right where readers of this blog would expect it to be.

New York’s Mayor de Blasio continues to shine – like the proverbial dead mackerel by moonlight. God have mercy on the souls of Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, two of New York’s finest. And may He comfort their friends and families.

It doesn’t matter: polls or no polls, fair polls or skewed polls, I’m not giving up my guns (and Second Amendment or no, same comment; the Second Amendment acknowledged an existing right, it did not create a new one).

Tom Coburn’s weird man-crush on Obama.

The number one domestic problem that needs to be dealt with... still ObamaCare.

Think you've got an unreasonable boss? Imagine being General Erwin Rommel trying to give Hitler some bad news.

Sunday funnies

Turning a nuisance into an opportunity.

If you're lacking the stamina to do a lot of decorating this year, take the lazy man's way out.

Seen any bad movies lately?

More interesting Gifs (particularly recommended is item #4 from Paco Electronics: the Pointless-O-Matic).


Surrendering can get to be an awfully bad habit...
