Teh Twitter – Open Thread
Teh Twitter. Yeah. I’m hip. What of it? Let me tell you something about Twitter. Despite the many humor blogs you’ve seen written, most people on Twitter are not sending Tweets (yes, that’s really what they are called … sigh) highlighting every mundane detail of their lives. “About to eat chicken” … “Eating Chicken” … “Done with Chicken” … “Remember the part where I was | Read More »

After Teaparty. Now what?
We go back home and wait for the axe to fall? No, I don’t think so! A strong statement was made, but the Dems in Congress are probably thinking; “The Cons were restless, but they’ll give up and go away after this, they always do.” They’re right, we always do. We work multiple jobs, and get back into the rut where we’re shoveling the coal | Read More »
Take a look at the picture below: (Click to enlarge) This is a map of the relationship network of Congressional members who are on Twitter.
