“Live Within Your Means!”

Tuesday, March 25th, 2008

Talk about mixed signals. This article is basically lecturing people about sticking to a budget. Of course it’s good advice, especially with the housing crisis, credit crisis, the tanking economy… But a huge percentage of our economy is based on discretionar y consumer spending. Where would we be without it? Every year ...

In Other News, Snowballs Thrive in Hell

Tuesday, March 25th, 2008

  God in Heaven, I found myself agreeing… with David Brooks. Pigs, aloft as far as the eye can see, are vying for airspace with monkeys recently launched from, er… I’ll spare you the details. (more…) Tags: Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, BIO, Election News, politics & the press, campaign, clinton, Democratic Party, ...

4000 KIA: Brought To You By George W. Bush

Monday, March 24th, 2008

Civilian Deaths, Military Deaths…no end in sight. No one would argue that this war has not come at a high cost in lives and treasure — but those costs are necessary when we consider the cost of a strategic victory for our enemies in Iraq. Perhaps the President’s definition of victory is ...

A Contemplation On Easter Sunday: From Baptism To Waterboarding

Sunday, March 23rd, 2008

Since I don’t like holidays, it seemed appropriate to use Easter Sunday as an opportunity to offer a contrarian’s contemplatio n…as well as a sarcastic graphic. I often write about the hypocrisy of the Catholic Church and the Bush administrati on’s efforts to skirt the issues of torture and civil ...

Sunday, March 23rd, 2008

Here’s another one sent to me by Chris – this time by my son Chris rather than my friend-since -ninth-grade Chris: http://www.b rasschecktv. com/page/291 .html As the link points out, the takedown of Elliott Spitzer for admittedly sleazy behavior, using what should have been confidential FBI information, took place ...

Cause and Effect.

Sunday, March 23rd, 2008

I tried to write this in a polite way, but screw that - aint happening. I’m pissed. I’m angry. I’m downright ready to go kick a Clinton in the crotch (either one - it doesn’t matter). Who the fuck do they think they are? When did it become OK for ...

Maybe Obama Made the Wrong Speech

Sunday, March 23rd, 2008

After Barack Obama’s former minister made racially insensitive remarks, Obama found it necessary to make a speech about race relations. But as important and eloquent as that speech was, perhaps it wasn’t the right one. Obama’s minister, Jeremiah Wright, followed a long tradition of clergy using their non-secular pulpits as very ...

God Loves Guns

Saturday, March 22nd, 2008

Based on the President’s Easter benediction, you would think God loves guns. Certainly, it’s plain: God loves strong military might. On Easter, we hold in our hearts those who will be spending this holiday far from home — our troops on the front lines. I deeply appreciate the sacrifices that ...

Stand Up To Telecom Lobby, Get Swiftboated

Saturday, March 22nd, 2008

It had to happen. When Boozo the Clown doesn’t get his way, tantrums will follow. He wants retroactive immunity for telecom executives and he wants it now. He said NOW!! He’s gonna thrust out his lower lip, stamp his foot and hold his breath until Congress bends over for him. ...
