Bush + Border Security = Bullshit

Saturday, May 26th, 2007

"For decades, the government failed to stop illegal immigration. My administration has stepped up efforts to improve border security, doubling the number of Border Patrol agents." -George W. Bush, 5/24/07 So said the president at his most recent press conference. The statement above is pulled from a short list of ...

The Falwell Conundrum

Thursday, May 17th, 2007

The post I wrote when Jerry Falwell died presented a bit of a conundrum. I intensely dislike some people, but I'm not much for harboring true hate - especially when the person is no longer around. I heard my mother's admonition to not say bad things about the dead as ...

Is the Bush conspiracy proven at the pump?

Wednesday, May 16th, 2007

Given the fact that raising the minimum wage to a decent level could break the economy of America according to President Bush I think that the prices at the pump are going to pretty much bury the American people for the good graces of our President. I was talking to ...

Fears, Peers, Smoke And Mirrors

Monday, May 14th, 2007

In our never ending quest to have the government or some other entity fix all that ails our society, we continue to look under every rock except the one that really counts…our own. On Thursday the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) announced that in establishing ratings for movies, it ...

Nation Building- When To Hand Over The House Keys

Thursday, May 10th, 2007

Note: After President Bush's veto of the war funding bill, I sent the following email to the White House. In a departure from my usual practice, I have used my real name so that he is able to see exactly who I am and what I believe. Dear Mr. President, I am ...

Presidential Politics 101

Tuesday, May 1st, 2007

We are about to embark on one of the most important political election cycles of our times. The American people have spoken loud and clear in the last election but apparently it was not loud enough to be heard over at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. With the passage of ...

Diviserfied Energy Is The Answer

Monday, April 30th, 2007

I find it ironic that we have reached a point where two major problems are coming to the fore at a singular point in time. Of course, I am talking about energy and environmental change. It is no coincidence that these two serious challenges are impossibly intertwined, because it is ...

I’m Against Abortion

Saturday, April 21st, 2007

I'm pro-life. I don't think anyone could reasonably argue that abortions are good - not even the women who have them. They can be risky and sometimes women must deal with severe emotional and physical consequences. Whether you believe that life begins at conception or at any date along the gestation ...

Citizens of the World: U.S. Can’t Be Trusted To Act Responsibly

Wednesday, April 18th, 2007

An international poll by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and WorldPublicOpinion.org has found that a majority of global citizens think the United States plays the role of international policeman more than it should, that it fails to take other country's interests into account when it does act, and that ...
