    Ted Cruzin' For a Political Br

    Ted Cruz has as much of a chance at winning the Presidency as Liberty University’s founder Jerry Falwell does in having a snowball fight where he currently is but anyone who knows anything about Republicans knows that to them, reality is just a liberal/socialist/anti-colonial plot.

    47 GOP Senators Write Love Let

    “Ares, you are so cute! We love everything about you and the awesome wars you bring us, it’s like, so sweet and gets us so hot! All we can think about is Armageddon-it-on with you!”

    Remembering Selma - The Civil

    I went to a church service last night on the anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery March at a small AME congregation. Mostly black, mostly middle class farmers. The minister, part time, as he is a farmer too, spoke passionately of the zeal of those protestors who stood up against injustice and of the cause that they lifted up. BUT, he also challenged the congregation to do more than just recall….

    Netanyahu's Alternative to Ave

    According to Netanyahu, what’s best for “all of us”, is to not try to negotiate with Iran to stop them developing a nuclear weapon. So if they need to be stopped…and negotiating is foolish, what one path is left to stop them? War. And that’s all that Netanyahu really wants.

During one particular political segment, the station played a clip of John Boehner doing one of his “Jobs…Jobs…(It’s all your fault, Mr. President)… Jobs” rants. At that point, a question occurred to me: How many US jobs, now exported, did those three cargo vessels represent?

Most of the Rightwing are confused over Libya. They don’t know how to respond to the way the President has responded. Let’s be honest: Gaddafi‘s not exactly your Hosni Mubarak. I mean, he doesn’t walk around in a tailored suit kitted out by Brooks Brothers. So whilst it’s funny to […]

None of these douchebags went to jail

Four major tobacco companies were subpoenaed and steadfastly refused to budge an inch that they knew cigarettes were addictive and were killing people. They all claimed they did not believe this.

We knew that if we wanted — if we waited one more day, Benghazi, a city nearly the size of Charlotte, could suffer a massacre that would have reverberated across the region and stained the conscience of the world.

Censorship? Surely there are few things more revealing of a reactionary mindset, some would hasten to assure me. Why, censorship can be identified with all the cruelest dictatorships, the most oppressive regimes, the most hardcore religious fundamentalists, etc. This is indeed true.

    • At the Movies in the White House WH Screening Room

      With all of the hoopla surrounding the films screened in the Obama White House, I got curious about what the past presidents watched. What follows is by no means complete, but an interesting bit of history.

    • The 100 Foot Journey 220px-The_Hundred_Foot_Journey_(film)_poster

      The film is a truly great mixture of drama, resistance to the forces of politics, the adroit combination comedy, and love story, in a culinary battle for the utmost Michilin Star rating for an established French fine dining enterprise that is a mere 100 feet apart from a brand new (to the village) Indian restaraunt.
