Rumsfeld: Cynical and Morally Confused

Thursday, August 31st, 2006

"My ass is caught in a crack, so let the vilification begin!" I could have sworn I heard the statement being whispered in the background during the Decider-in-Chief's recent interview. But even if I only imagined it, I hear the manifestation of it loud and clear in the latest words ...

Another Defeat for the Vast Rightwing Conspiracy

Thursday, August 31st, 2006

You'd think, after the failed Clinton impeachment conviction, and the failed attack on Joe Wilson via his CIA wife no less, that the Vast Rightwing Conspiracy would learn a lesson. You'd think. Well, here comes another failure. In 2004, NAACP Chairman Julian Bonds gave an NAACP convention speech that ...

You Can’t Wear That On An Airplane!

Thursday, August 31st, 2006

Not only can you no longer take water bottles and toothpaste on board an airplane, now you have to watch what you're wearing too. On a trip back from the Middle East, Iraqi blogger and activist Raed Jarrar was not allowed to board a flight at JFK airport because he was ...

Quote of the Day 8/31/06

Thursday, August 31st, 2006

As everday goes by, those in power block out more of the sun... Liberty cannot be sacrificed for the sake of temperance, for the sake of morality, or for the sake of anything. It is of more value than everything else. Yet some people would destroy the sun to prevent the ...

A Decision Reevaluated

Thursday, August 31st, 2006

It's no surprise that the mess in Iraq is at the top of the news. Many people thought it was a bad decision from the get-go and even some of the President's most ardent supporters are now wondering just what in the hell he's doing. At the time of the ...

Flat Decider

Thursday, August 31st, 2006

Jesus' General has a doozie (wonder why no one uses that word anymore?) up today. The Maine National Guard started a program called Flat Daddy, or Flat Mommy, that provides a life-size cardboard cut-out of the families loved one who is away serving in Iraq. This way it's ...

Respect Education

Thursday, August 31st, 2006

How can we fix our national education problem? Of course we must first admit that there is a problem. With all of the proposals being floated around the politicians - testing, accountability, more taxes, more discipline, higher teacher’s salaries, school vouchers, and magnet schools for example - someone must think ...

Fitz Lied and Scooter Fried?

Thursday, August 31st, 2006

Okay, I. Lewis Libby hasn't fried but he has been indicted in the years-long and still ongoing investigation into who leaked the name and CIA status of Valerie Plame and I don't know whether Fitzgerald lied or whether, after nearly two years of investigation, he still had no clue as ...

Quote of the Day 8/30/06

Wednesday, August 30th, 2006

Hear, Hear Tom! Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and torturous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness, with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we called it the word of a demon, than the Word of God. It is a ...

Gay Rights on the March in Cullyfawnia

Wednesday, August 30th, 2006

The State of California has just added Sexual Orientation to the list of discriminatory protections as the Bill was signed into law by the Terminator. And as you might have guessed, the Talibangelists are up in arms saying things so preposterous, that only a Talibangelist can believe it: Karen England, ...
