    Republican Congressmen to Sue

    Sen. Ted Cruz and the majority of Republican men in Congress explained that it was their sole responsibility to take the trash out in their house and that their wives’ unilateral action in taking it out makes it impossible for the trash to be taken out in the future.

    Memento 2: The U.S. News Media

    Out of the total of 36% of eligible voters who voted in this year’s election, even if Republicans averaged a 10% margin of victory over Dems overall (55% to 45%), that means only 19% of American voters voted for Republicans. So Democrats should be running scared because 81% of U.S. voters didn’t vote for Republicans?

    An Open Letter to President Ob

    What do you do now that Republicans won a wave election? Just what Republicans did when Democrats won wave elections in 2008 and 2012. Become intransigent and refuse to work with them because America made clear they want a President who’ll block Republicans and represent their values. Easy peasy!

Last night I had a dream of a beautiful dusk landscape, I dreamt I was as light as the ether, a floating spirit visiting things to come. The shades and shadows of my life wrestled their way into my slumber… I dreamt that Dick and George decided to turn themselves […]

The Weekend Music Thread-Lights, Camera, Music

After a somewhat dark week in the news, I thought I’d make this weekend’s music thread a little on the lighter side of life. It’s about the combination of video and music, sort of like an early version of MTV. It’s about your favorite, most creative music videos. Choose any […]

It was a no-brainer (or as known in Republican circles, a “Gohmert”) for Republicans to vote against background checks, an assault weapons ban and a gun magazine limit. And it was just as easy for them to be “outraged” by the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi. Only If deaths help them politically, do they matter.

Are there really that many happy meals missing french fries? Judging by the look of the GOP, the NRA and producers of rifles for children, I really think so. So this weekend’s music thread is about crazy people, lunatics and just plain mayhem.

The enemy is small but incredibly powerful, they mount assaults all across the globe on people everywhere but are like terror cells, operating independently but driven by the same philosophies and practicing the same ruthlessness. The enemy is both foreign and domestic and has more destructive power than any army.

Weekend Music Thread-Up Up and Away

This weekend’s music thread is about travel, by air, sea, or land. By plane train or automobile (or cars and trucks). It is about movement, getaways, sort of like Congress trying to get away from furloughed air traffic controllers and the unforeseen inconvenience of their travel plans. It’s amazing how […]

“I realize the tragic significance of the atomic bomb… It is an awful responsibility which has come to us… We thank God that it has come to us, instead of to our enemies; and we pray that He may guide us to use it in His ways and for His purposes”.

President Harry Truman, August 9, 1945

They literally wrap themselves in flags (at least flag pins) but if you were to make a checklist of all of America’s founding and ongoing principles, as a democracy and society, you’d find a substantial Republican checklist of things they despise.
