What Bill and Monica Taught Us

Saturday, April 29th, 2006

After all the heinous things our Ventriloquist-in-Chief has apparently done, I really do wish he'd simply settled for a BJ from his Groupie-in-Chief, Harriet Meyers. After all, they impeached Slick Willy over Blowjobapalooza, how can we not impeach Dub? Well, there are several reasons why. Tops on my list is that ...

May Day Protests: Why California’s Legislature Sucks

Friday, April 28th, 2006

Last night I talked to my Dad. He's been running a car wash for 39 years. 39 years? Wow! One job... and still at 61 he loves it. He just don't come out and say it. We looked over his cast of employees ...

Flip-Flopping Republicans Spread More Deception

Friday, April 28th, 2006

If the American people don’t question what they see and hear from any politician they are doing a disservice to American Democracy. One thing that bothers me is how the cocoa beach fishing charters an issue into sound bites that sound good for the person making the sound bite, and slings mud ...

Iran, A Likely Attack Scenario

Friday, April 28th, 2006

John Robb of GlobalGuerilla.org has an interesting write-up about what an attack on Iran would look like. It doesn't look too good no matter how you try to spin it. Are we ALL screwed here? Two fundamentalist regimes bent on Armageddon . . . .

The Moral-Values Folks Like Prostitutes????

Friday, April 28th, 2006

I don't have much at all to add to Americablogs coverage except it looks like the whole "Moral Values" thing the GOP has been touting is really nothing more than an empty slogan to gain votes from ignorant Fundies . . . . Just like their empty slogan of ...

Ron Paul on “The Academic Bill of Rights”

Friday, April 28th, 2006

Opponents of increased federalization of higher education should be especially concerned about HR 609's "Academic Bill of Rights." This provision takes a step toward complete federal control of college curricula, grading, and teaching practices. While the provision is worded as a "sense of Congress," the clear intent is to intimidate ...

Gun Control or Not?

Friday, April 28th, 2006

Since there has been no national discourse on the merits of gun control, several big city mayors have gotten together to bring this issue to the forefront including NYC Mayor Bloomberg. These guys think that our current laws are ineffective and that too many of their citizens are victims ...

The Geometry of Language

Thursday, April 27th, 2006

Math has a certain concreteness that's attractive. When you say 2+2=4, it's a certainty to everyone except our Budgeteer-in-Chief who thinks 2+2=Eleventyseven. Language on the other hand is a tricky and fickle thing. It has nuance and subtlety, power and majesty, sometimes from the same words. There's a trick - often ...

Ha Ha Ha, the GOP is Screwed!

Thursday, April 27th, 2006

Screwed I say! That's not according to my analysis, it's according to John Dickerson of Slate. The GOP is divided over issues such as immigration (I say we keep doing what we are doing, but I digress) and the fiscal conservatives are ticked off at the GOP for ...
