Randpaul

I know all there are scores of too-cool-for-school kids who hang out on Bill Maher’s Facebook page and stoke this little man’s enormously fragile ego. Bill’s always been a big fan of Ron Paul’s, although he’s not too keen on Rand Paul. I can’t figure out why, because their idealogy […]

        Two sides of the same coin. Hot air. Update:  Actually, I learned something from this exercise that shouldn’t have surprised me, but which sparked a memory: Rush Limbaugh, expostulating about MSNBC, is positively astounded at the change in Chris Matthews. Chris Matthews! Seems that Chris, at […]

How’s this for an oxymoron? Her Serene Highness Queen Ratfucker Omnipotent of Medialand, otherwise known as Arianna Huffington, came to Philadelphia yesterday to address the convention of theNational Association of Black Journalists. Why, I don’t know; but there’s nothing Arianna ever does that doesn’t include promotion of that one thing […]

Barack_Obama_signs_American_Recovery_and_Reinvestment_Act_of_2009_on_February_17

There’s been a campaign going on around the blogosphere for awhile, advocating that MSNBC ban Pat Buchanan from appearing on the network. Buchanan is a political analyst, who, in the wake of the tragedy in Norway, wrote an editorial, which appeared to rationalise, if not favour, the motives of the assassin […]

Obama haters of all stripes and alleged political positions are joined in a chorus of furious, self-righteous bleating, like a flock of sheep with gas pains.

How did the Debt get so big? How did it become so famous? And what are its future plans? I sat down with the National Debt last week to see if I could find some answers.

Murdoch - Pesci2

Rupert Murdoch may explain to those he “puts a hit” on, “It’s nuthin’ personal, it’s just business,” but to any citizen of any nation that wishes to preserve their democracy, it’s pretty damn personal.

  While scientists remain puzzled as to the cause of  the dramatic decline in honeybee populations in North America and elsewhere, some are speculating the cause may very much be human related; however, not technological, but  philosophical. It appears that “Randism”, a trend that has recently exploded on the American […]

 The depths to which our “4th Estate” has sunk is the result of a deliberate plan to obscure the differences between contrived drama and reality and it will be very difficult to turn around now that several generations have already been indoctrinated. After the so-called “Liberal Press” had successfully caused […]

So I understand Keith Olbermann, the multimillionaire media egotist and ex-sportscaster who deems himself eminently qualified to comment on political affairs, whose resurrected show Countdown is an echo chamber of one-sided thought with no room for debate and no tolerance for any divergence of opinion, ended his first program on […]

This is a rare opportunity to strengthen our nation’s democracy simply by watching tv.

The British have a great phrase for expressing the fact that someone is undergoing a particularly angering derangement syndrome. They simply say that someone “has a cob on.” Well, Joan Walsh has had a massive cob on since early April, dating, specifically from the moment the President announced he was […]

    The kindergarten of spoiled, affluent children pretending to  dabble in politics, otherwise known as Netroots Nation, hit a new low when the White House communications director, Dan Pfeiffer, was subjected to one of the most immature and unprofessional snark interviews ever given to a political operative who had […]

ROBBER

There is a great deal of consternation regarding the fact that a Senate Committee just passed the ‘Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act’. If signed into law (which is likely), COICA would allow the Department of Justice to file a civil lawsuit against the domain owners. If the courts then […]
