Why is all this happening to me now? And what does Topix have to do with hiding computer viruses in the banner ads and forum sidebars?

You make me feel important.

Now I know how all truth seekers feel when attacked by liberal loons.

Thanks for that. Really.

Instead of moving Congress nearer a grand bargain, Obama's proposals so far have managed to anger both Republicans, who are upset by higher taxes, and Democrats upset with cuts to Social Security benefits.
(Sorry, Homer. Couldn't resist.)
I figure if he pissing off both Republicans and Democrats he's probably on the right track. Homer is afterall an Independent.

Anal Fissure in Gay Population

Anal fissure, often confused with hemorrhoids, is common among male homosexuals. Anal and peri-anal ulcers are also common among male homosexuals and can also be confused with anal fissure so it is important to go to the doctor to obtain a diagnosis, Homer.

The Book of Colon and Rectal Surgeons states that if you are gay and have an ulcer or an anal fissure, it is recommended that you get tested for other conditions such as Syphilis, Chlamydia, Haemophilus Ducreyi, Cytomegalovirus, Herpes Simplex virus, HIV, Squamous Cell Carcinoma, Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, and Kaposi’s Sarcoma.

If you are gay Homer and practice anal sex, any fissure or anal ulcer should be tested for any of these conditions because you are at a higher risk of getting them.

Well I am not gay. Do you think only gays have anal sex? Maybe you are not a homophobe but an assphobe or more likely just an ass

March 5. There is only one thing you need to know about finance: the stock market is not the economy.

This is worth remembering, because the stock market has been turning in some seductive performances, while the economy has been languishing. The Dow Jones Industrial Average hit a new high of 14,222 today; if it remains that lofty throughout the day, it will beat the previous high of 14,164 on 9 October 2007.

Inevitably, seeing numbers like the Dow rise should feel good. Our gross domestic product isn't going up, having barely scraped out 0.1% last quarter. Our personal income isn't going up, as wages are stagnating. Our employment numbers aren't going up, as we're still short three million jobs lost in the recession. Our 401Ks are dispersed through the stock market and it's nice to feel a little rich, or at least better off. When many of the major economic indicators provide only a wheezing malaise, the Dow high provides a little spot of irrational exuberance that is a welcome antidote.

But don't trust the Dow. It doesn't have your best interests at heart. It lies to you. It's that narcissist who's always preening and trying to look powerful when in fact it barely deserves an invitation to the party.

Most Americans know that the Dow is composed of a basket of 30 industrial stocks that are largely impervious to the struggles of ordinary Americans. If you separated these stocks, their rise would not be exciting. It's hard to picture a family driving back from the food bank – poverty is also at all-time highs in America, by the way – chanting "three cheers for Alcoa! Let's hear it for Caterpillar!" Americans, no matter how patriotic, don't pull out the pom-poms when it's a good quarter for Cisco. We just wait quietly for the riches to trickle down, for the companies to start hiring and for the rest of us to feel rich.

That trickle-down is not happening, and we know it's not happening.
