The CIA has released it's file on Saudi Involvement in 9/11, and it's HYSTERICAL!

Today after numerous FOIA requests and quite a bit of time, the CIA released a trove of documents relating to its investigations into the 9/11 terror attacks.  Included in the documents was a released document of the CIA's investigations into potential Saudi involvement in the attacks themselves.

Well. if you can call "released" when 90% of the document looks like that example page to the left.   No, that's not a joke.  Thats what the document actually looks like.

In fact there is only a single un-redacted paragraph in the entire document,  and to be honest, it doesn't say much of anything.

To read the entirety of the "document" please visit Gawker where they have the entire PDF embedded.

What ever happened to that whole "Most Transparent Government Ever" Thing?  Yeah, I dont know either.

Mother Jones tries to stir up lame Bill O'Reilly "controversy"

Anyone who knows me, knows that I think that Bill O'Reilly is a first-class dick.   That being said, I would say that writing a hit-piece on his reporting from THIRTY THREE years ago is grasping for straws at the most desperate level.   Come on Mother Jones, you can do better than this.

After NBC News suspended anchor Brian Williams for erroneously claiming that he was nearly shot down in a helicopter while covering the US invasion of Iraq in 2003, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly went on a tear. On his television show, the top-rated cable news anchor declared that the American press isn’t “half as responsible as the men who forged the nation.” He bemoaned the supposed culture of deception within the liberal media, and he proclaimed that the Williams controversy should prompt questioning of other “distortions” by left-leaning outlets. Yet for years, O’Reilly has recounted dramatic stories about his own war reporting that don’t withstand scrutiny—even claiming he acted heroically in a war zone that he apparently never set foot in.

I mean, let's be honest here.   If you want to write a hit piece on O'Reilly, I'm sure you can find something better than that.   Like... oh I don't know.... this.

American Passport Holders increase from 3% to 38% since 1989

According to this chart from DadaVis,  the number of American Passport holders has seen a tremendous increase since 1989.   The number has gone from 3% of the population to over 38% of the population.   Does this have to do with the face that passports are now required at the Canadian and Mexican borders?   Does it have to do with the exponential growth of the Cruise industry and/or Caribbean vacations?   Or is this a sign of the rats starting to leave the sinking ship?  Curious.

Sharpton vs. The Teleprompter 4 - Your laugh of the day.

My goodness.   I wish there was some way I could donate to the guy who makes these.  They are always the funniest thing I will see that week.   Though he doesn't quite top the "resist we much.." bit from the last one.

Also, how is Sharpton still on the air?   He's quite possibly the worst television host in history.  Then again, as long as these keep coming out, he can keep his show as long as he wants.

Here's a pretty funny one from Politico.   Honestly, it's kind of a lame jab at the GOP.   Especially considering that the Democrats don't have much going on as far as interesting candidates themselves.  In fact, I can't remember an election in recent memory that had SO little of interest coming from either party.  

Honestly, who is the GOP going to run?  Jeb Bush?  Too left.  Mitt Romney?  Too Lame?   Donald Trump?!    It's a sad state of affairs.   The democrats aren't fairing much better, with only Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren getting any real traction.   The big shame is that the big two parties have made it almost an impossibility for any real third party candidate to get in front of people after Perot got too close for comfort in the early 90s.  (Of course remember that what they considered too close for comfort was a whopping 8.4% of the vote.)

Something tells me there are going to be a lot of people voting with their lack of vote in 2016.

Elon Musk: To the people in New Jersey

Tesla-Model-S copy From Tesla's own Elon Musk on their website today:

On Tuesday, under pressure from the New Jersey auto dealer lobby to protect its monopoly, the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission, composed of political appointees of the Governor, ended your right to purchase vehicles at a manufacturer store within the state. Governor Christie had promised that this would be put to a vote of the elected state legislature, which is the appropriate way to change the law. When it became apparent to the auto dealer lobby that this approach would not succeed, they cut a backroom deal with the Governor to circumvent the legislative process and pass a regulation that is fundamentally contrary to the intent of the law.

Well written.  This seems like some of the scummiest back door dealing I've seen in quite some time.   Best question for anyone who tries to argue this story to you:   Why can I go into an Apple Store and buy an iPad,  but I can't go into a Tesla Store and buy a Tesla?

Seems simple enough.
