When it comes to huge impacting realities about American society, The MSM is militant…they employ a “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. For example, it was an open secret for decades that Catholic Priests had been abusing young boys. It was so well known “unofficially” that it became a throw away […]

Progressives to their credit are becoming more and more aware of what much of these teabag protests are all about, blatant racism. After all just reading the signs of the teabaggers this past weekend exposes the type of people they are. However we also have to be cognizant of the […]

Bush used what he called patriotism as a wedge to defend his disastrous policies.  But he was not being patriotic he was being nationalistic.  The difference between the two are often conflated by those like Bush and Cheney that want to use the word patriotism for political ends. NATIONALISTS, follow […]

Before I start this entry, I would like to take a moment to remember the 9/11 tragedy and its victims during, and after the event. 9/11 had to be one of the most surreal experiences of my life, topped only by the deaths of my parents the 1+ year prior […]

Now I like hot breakfast cereals and drugged kids as much as anyone but there’s one thing I don’t need and that’s more acronyms! There are way too many and they’re just not funny.

We have come to take for granted that part of life in society is being in debt one’s whole life and paying towards that debt one’s whole life. Isn’t something wrong with that? Do we really need all the “things” we are encouraged to become indebted over? I mean, how often are you using that Thighmaster or that George Foreman grill nowadays?

I’ve been invited to blah, blah, blah … blog.  I don’t know where to begin but I do know I don’t have much time for it. I was going to blog about working through a famous sushi cookbook and relating my experiences, my failures and my triumphs but I figured I […]

I’m afraid I have some scary news about fear…it’s terroriffic! Fear and gold are two of the best investments you can make in tough times. Oh, and I hear Astroglide stock is doing pretty well too. Killing Grannies is up astronomically, America becoming Russia is getting a “recommend” from Jim […]

I previously had thought only conservatives revised history to fit the memes of the modern day but it seems like progressives are playing that game as well. We have all heard the right wing revisions of history like FDR was not successful at ending the Great Depression when the truth […]

Despite complaints about his ego, filmmaking style and his overexposure in the 2004 elections, Michael Moore remains the most effective, progressive and influential filmmaker out there. Expect the MSM to attack Moore for the hypocrisy and corruption spotlighted in this film, as they did with Sicko and Fahrenheit 911. There […]

We’ve seen this same segment of the population before that is currently spewing hatred at the town hall meetings on health care. They were the same ones foaming at the mouth about the government at tea bag parties. The same ones screaming “Terrorist!” and “Kill him!” in reference to Obama […]

Our species most unique strength is our ability to reason. Our species gravest weakness is our tendency to rationalize.

Seriously, what does the GOP stand for? Goofballs Opposing Progress? Now of course it’s understandable that the most  loyal Republicans include those opposing evolution, racial equality and integration, health care as a civil right, curbing global warming, peace and the laws of gravity. Not to mention those who love teabagging […]

It seems far too many Americans live by the phrase, “Don’t pee on my leg and tell me it’s raining…unless you’re really, really convincing.”

Many people WANT to be sold on bullshit, they just don’t like thinking about things that make them feel bad or insecure and welcome any and all attempts to re-label reality. This is endemic in politics but just as intertwined in most other parts of society.

Dear God, We humbly write to you, our great and omnipotent Lord because we’re not sure you’re aware of what’s been happening lately. We’ve done everything to follow what you want. We hate all the right people. We promote Christian values especially when we cheat on our wives, get caught […]
