I’m not drinking this time ’round (mumblegrumblestupidworkinthemorning) but will still be flexing my snark muscles in 140 characters or less via Twitter. Feel free to follow and join in the fun.  Oh, and, if so inclined, have a drink or three on my behalf.

Also check out the (interactive!) liveblogging going on over at Feministe and Angry Brown Butch, where the booze shall be flowing like wine.

Um.  Yeah.

Quote of the Day: Blog Action Day 2008 Edition

by matttbastard

Deceit and manipulation has convinced that masses that social programs are too costly and any move toward *gasp* socialism would bankrupt the country/world economy. Yet if you look around after decades of rampant unfettered capitalism and corporate welfare the world economies are in collapse and governments are resorting to enormous amounts of socialist cash infusion into the banking industry to try to provide a solution to a world wide depression. No where near the amount of money spent on this fiasco could have provided decent housing, health care, eliminated, or vastly decreased, child poverty And proper regulations surrounding the treatment of workers and the expectations of corporations to keep jobs in Canada would have resulted in good jobs and plenty of cash influx into the economy. Yet instead we are told to tighten our belts while CEO’s reap obscene amounts of money even in a crashing economy.
