No, I don’t have a lisp and I wasn’t cursing. Just a reminder that today is “Thank Huffington It’s Thursday!”. To help me with this reminder, I’ve brought my nephew, MadLib to join me in this post. Say hi to our members, Madlib… “Hi.” Madlib, why don’t you repeat that […]

The New Religion:  Church of the Woo Woos One of the most disturbing aspects of the von Brunn shooting incidence at the Holocaust Museum is that von Brunn is part of the anti-Fed woo woo movement. Unfortunately the woo woo movement is not restricted to the far right wing. It […]

Hey fellow members, here is the latest bitingly satirical piece by AntiChrist (I’m going to have to add a gallery to The Planet to hang all these masterpieces!), created in response to The House’s vote against women’s right to choose. May I ask that any of you visiting that other […]

Today, we went out to eat at our favourite Mexican restaurant and watch a few innings of the [shudder] Yankees winning the World Series. For a little while there was at the bar a rather loud person, someone who obviously has some … well, issues. He railed about how people […]

Today’s another Election Day in America and when I woke up, I realized I didn’t know what to think about it . So I rushed to the TV, turned it on and flipped to one of the cable news channels. Fortunately, there were nice people there who confidently explained exactly […]

Personally, I was delighted to see the White House fighting back against the network that bills itself as a “News” network, and is most clearly not even close. In Frank Rich’s column today, he addressed the ongoing “feud”[bolding is mine]: Only in the alternative universe of the far right is […]

Being that it is Halloween, I thought it might be fun if we all shared scary tales about things that go bump in the night. I have two such tales, and they are true as far as I can attest, but then again, I was a child of the 60’s, […]

The Huffington Post has sparked a national blatherfest with a series of posts by self-help guru Marcus Buckingham, which Arianna, in her trademark breathless fashion, blurbs as “the sad, shocking truth about how women are feeling.”

The House presented its health care reform bill today. So naturally, the top story at HuffPo this evening, at this moment, written by Damn…I mean Dame Arianna herself  is “Huffington Post Game Changers! Vote!”. You may criticize Arianna for her opportunism, misrepresentation, fear of criticism and enormous feet but she […]

When The Huffington Post crossed the line again with another questionable attack on President Obama this Sunday, many members protested online and here at PlanetPOV. There was increased and unflattering speculation about the motives and agendas of The Huffington Post and Arianna Huffington. Remarkably, Arianna Huffington has chosen to respond […]

I have had the misfortune to have caught what appears to be the Swine Flu. Not only do I appear to have all the symptoms but my lungs seem to be filled with bacon fat. This has resulted in my being stranded on the couch for days watching far too […]

As Michael Moore’s new film, “Capitalism, A Love Story” is coming out its seems an appropriate time to reflect on the character of American capitalism and how it has usurped social responsibility and democracy in this country. In the remarkable documentary, “The Corporation”, a segment of the film is dedicated […]

Live from The Chicago Municipal Opera House, bequeathed to the city by Charles Foster (Citizen) Kane, it’s Oscar Night! Tonight is a special ceremony, wherein we honor the Best Pictures to NOT win Best Picture. At what other venue could we possibly hold this auspicious event? Citizen Kane is more than just […]

We Americans are being very wasteful with our natural resources of emotional energy. This is causing a slew of problems affecting our environment including adding a great deal of additional CO2 into the atmosphere,  pollution of political discourse  and a shortage of positive emotional energy.
