Comrade PhysioProf is extremely thrilled and excited that he has won Round #3 of the Recipe War with his delicious–yet simple to prepare–miso-glazed black cod served with chilled somen noodles. His fierce, yet honorable, competitor Dr. Isis did come forward on the field of battle with a very tasty-looking vermouth poached salmon provencal, which Comrade PhysioProf confesses he may very well have to make at some point. This week’s battle could turn out to be a key turning point in the Recipe War, as the score is now 2-1 in favor of Dr. Isis.

For this week’s Second Fish Course, Comrade PhysioProf prepared broiled arctic char with a Cotes-du-Rhone balsamic reduction sauce, served on top of sauteed mushrooms and leeks, and accompanied by toasted parmigiano reggiano asparagus topped with a fried egg. As you will see, Comrade Physioprof has exploited Dr. Isis’s excellent sautee-based method for cooking asparagus that she presented in last week’s recipe. Here we go!

Compare And Contrast

September 28, 2008

From an article in the NY Times about the apparently concluded negotiations on the greedfuck moneygrab financial bailout plan:

Obama: When taxpayers are asked to take such an extraordinary step because of the irresponsibility of a relative few, it is not a cause for celebration. But this step is necessary.

McCain: This is something that all of us will swallow hard and go forward with. The option of doing nothing is simply not an option.

Bush: If money isn’t loosened up, this sucker could go down.

UPDATE: Thank you to my lovely friend Sciencewoman, who has pointed out in the comments that she has discovered that the above quotes are actually not in the linked NY Times article. Apparently, the Times has edited the content of the article at that link after it was originally posted, and taken out these quotes. Regardless, the quotes are real.

It boggles the mind that we’d even consider turning over that kind of money with no strings attached to the SAME EXACT GREEDFUCK ASSHOLES WHO FUCKED EVERYTHING UP IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!!!!!! The details of the greedfuck moneygrab financial bailout remain to be seen, but the motherfucking Congress better not fuck this shit up!

Blackberry Blogging

September 27, 2008

If this works, I will have just posted from my Blackberry.

From a Wall Street Journal article on Congressional negotiations concerning the despicable greedfuck moneygrab financial bailout plan:

Rep. Tom Davis (R., Va.) said Republicans have felt like “bystanders” the past two years and wanted to be brought into the negotiations as full partners. Democrats “have got to come and meet us halfway,” he said.

Is this deranged right-wing scumbag fucking kidding!? When the depraved America-hating traitorious GOP was in the majority, the motherfuckers literally locked Democratic fucking lawmakers out of committee rooms and held secret meetings. Now that they are in the minority where the treasonous shitheels belong, they are whining like little motherfucking babies who have been wrested away from their mothers’ nipples that Dems need to meet them halfway.

Boo Fucking Hoo, assholes!

Comrade PhysioProf

September 26, 2008

Following the leads of my comrades at Calculated Risk, Comrade John Cole, and Comrade Earth-Bound-Misfit, I am temporarily changing my name to Comrade PhysioProf, in honor of the fact that we have apparently become a socialist state. As Comrade EBM put it:

Warrantless searches. Warrantless wiretaps. Detentions without trial. Accusations of treason against those opposed to the regime.

And now, socialism, at least for the rich (you poor saps who make less than a few million a year still get to drown without hindrance).

Are You Fucking Kidding Me!?

September 25, 2008

On Wednesday, deranged fuckwit President Bush had this to say about the financial bailout plan:

Financial assets related to home mortgages have lost value during the housing decline, and the banks holding these assets have restricted credit. As a result, our entire economy is in danger. So I propose that the federal government reduce the risk posed by these troubled assets and supply urgently needed money so banks and other financial institutions can avoid collapse and resume lending. [emphasis added]

Has this craven scumbag ever said anything that wasn’t a complete utter lie designed solely to benefit one or another of his various America-hating traitorious shitbag cronies? I mean seriously, is there even a single person left in the United States who could possibly believe a single word Bush says about anyfuckingthing?

From Bloomberg today:

Sept. 23 (Bloomberg) — Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke signaled that the government should buy devalued assets at above-market values to make its proposed $700 billion rescue package most effective in combating the financial crisis.

Is there any question whatsoever that this is nothing more than a plutocratic greedfuck last-ditch money grab designed to turn the American middle-class upside fucking down and shake the last few coins out of its already nearly empty pockets?

EDIT: Angry Bear makes the same point much more viscerally!

“Libertarianism” Explained

September 23, 2008

A friend of mine was complaining about some assmonger “libertarian” motherfucker whose comment on a blog was chapping her ass. I explained to her that dumbfuck incoherent “libertarian” douchewackers do tend, with their abject stupidity and patent hypocrisy, to chap the old ass.

I like to challenge them to build their own fucking roads, stop using grossly government-subsidized gasoline, stop letting firemen put out their burning houses, stop calling the police when they are burglarized or otherwise become the victim of crimes, stop flying on planes that use air traffic control, etc, etc, etc.

Basically, “libertarianism” is just code for “the government should subsidize and support *my* shit, but anyone who wants the government to subsidize and support *their* shit should just fuck right off“. Fucking selfish deluded hypocritical pigs is all libertarians are.

This week’s recipe is Miso-Glazed Black Cod with Cold Somen Noodles. It is distinguished by how motherfucking quick and easy it is to prepare something so delicious.
