Anyone Want a Scary Story?

Monday, November 28th, 2005

Seymour Hersh wrote one of the scariest paragraphs in American History in the New Yorker this week:“The President is more determined than ever to stay the course,” the former defense official said. “He doesn’t feel any pain. Bush is a believer in the adage ‘People may suffer and die, but ...

Objective Religious Study

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2005

Ninety-nine percent of all religions are wrong. How do I know? I know, because all religions contradict each other. And, most religions believe that they are the one true religion. If these religions contradict each and they claim to be the one true religion then only one of them can ...

RAISE TAXES!

Thursday, November 17th, 2005

There.  I said it.  It’s time to raise federal income taxes – not that I think anyone on the Hill has the backbone and integrity to say it, let alone do it.  Someone has to say it, though, and I may be a lot of things, but at least I'm ...

More Failures of the War on Terror

Monday, November 14th, 2005

Another comparison to Vietnam...  We don't have a clue in the universe who we are dealing with! Here we are, almost three years into this debacle (we took Hitler AND Japan down at a faster rate than this!) and Bush finds himself whoring Veterans Day to assail critics of the war.  ...

Clinton Comes Back Swinging

Friday, November 11th, 2005

(No, not that type of swinging, dirty-minded conservatives...) Bill Clinton, in a speech yesterday at Hofstra, said his impeachment "was an egregious abuse of the Constitution and law and history of our country.”  The facts were plain: Bill Clinton was asked, at a deposition in Arkansas regarding the Paula Jones loony ...

Yesterday’s election results say a lot about California politics and they say a lot about elections in general. For example, in 1987, the California Legislature enacted A.B. 2274, which altered California law to require parental consent or a court order before a minor could obtain an abortion. In 1987 the California ...

Long Island 2005 - GOP Bad Omen

Wednesday, November 9th, 2005

When the Democrats victorious returns came in from the 2005 elections, the GOP talking heads were quick to point out that the races were local-issue oriented, and that the mud-slinging turned off the suburban (read: Republican) voters.  The idea being that this election was no national referendum on the White ...

New Fear

Monday, November 7th, 2005

Fear has been the most successful issue of the Bush administration. To get elected the Bush administration used fear to lure the Christian Right to defend the family and save the unborn Children. Well meaning Christians were told that the Democrats were heathen, Godless, morally and ethically empty people. The ...

Did You Ever Feel Used?

Thursday, November 3rd, 2005

It isn’t a nice feeling to know that someone you trusted has used you to get what they want. When the person who used you is someone you admired you may deny it. When it happens again, you find it more difficult to deny. You can deny it again and ...

California Proposition 77 - Redistricting

Thursday, November 3rd, 2005

In the 2005 special election eight different Propositions have been placed on the ballot for the people to decide. The legislature normally creates and passes the laws, and propositions are a difficult and expensive way to get laws passed. Therefore placing a proposition on the ballot for the people to ...
