God Gave Rock’n’Roll, and Pigeons, to You

God Gave Rock’n’Roll, and Pigeons, to You

Well, God also created pigeons, whom apparently find fault with the Kings of Leon. The pigeons expressed their musical opinions while literally pooping all over them on-stage Friday night in St. Louis from their perches high above in the Verizon Amphitheater. Depending on which report that you read, one has the birds defecating over all the musicians that night. [Read the rest of this article...]

Energizing Facts

Energizing Facts

Republicans are telling the truth on cap and trade because they know we Americans have become terrified of T-A-X. They spend their time screaming about "our grandchildren" because they know that we, as a society, are focused more on the paperwork we leave our children, and less on the legacy we leave our children.

The End of Capitalism? Alex Knight Speaks Out (Part 1)

The End of Capitalism? Alex Knight Speaks Out (Part 1)

We can’t pretend we have freedom in this country until “we, the people” have a say in our neighborhoods, towns and cities, in our workplaces, our schools, and our government. This requires that the public actively participate in managing their own affairs, for example through neighborhood councils to have a say in the neighborhood, through labor unions to have a say at work, student unions to have a say at school, and other democratic organizations that give people the power to defend their rights. There is a dire need to hold our corrupt representatives in Washington accountable to popular will. [Read the rest of this article...]

OKAY, CALL ME A SOCIALIST

OKAY, CALL ME A SOCIALIST

The current ‘recession’ is the worst economic crisis this country has faced since the Great Depression. To make use of a cliché this crisis has affected everyone from Wall Street to Main Street. Effective, realistic means of dealing with the current crisis have to be used and some lessons from our not so distant past can help us cope with the current crisis. FDR’s New Deal programs offer some insight. Already financial reform on the same scale as that undertaken during the Great Depression has been enacted, now it is time for the recovery to begin through the development of new jobs and the return of a flow of income to the country's coffers. Call it liberal; call it socialist, I don’t really care. I call it wise. [Read the rest of this article...]

Is the Water-to-Wine Extra?

Is the Water-to-Wine Extra?

Jesus Is FOR LEASE. Well of course he is. Isn't that the entire basis of organized religion? Called tithing, the Catholic Church asks/requests/requires that you tithe/donate/give 10% of your annual income to the Church. Most if not all denominations ask you to "give what you can/give 'til it hurts" when they pass around the collection plate. The majority of churches are non-profits/.orgs, while all of them live tax free. Some make partial donations to local governments through "in-lieu of payments", as do colleges and other non-profits.

Faith and Values

Faith and Values

Jeri says, "I came to the conclusion that there must be something about religious faith which renders people stupid." This was an observation regarding the 2004 U.S. presidential election that you might recall re-elected George W. Bush. Maybe it's the "warning" or maybe it's the "stupid" that did it, but it has inflamed tempers. Imagine that! [Read the rest of this article...]

Blame Obama

Blame Obama

The American Tea Party is mad as hell, and they aren't going to take it anymore! I get that; rage I understand. What I am left to figure out is what in the hell they are mad about? Were these folks angry in 2005, 2006, 2007, or 2008? Have they just reached their boiling points now? Or is the President doing something to our nation that forms a legitimate gripe? The secret to the answer to that question, in my humble opinion, lies in the timing of the Tea Party outrage. [Read the rest of this article...]

Words: Yah, But They Vas Bahd

George Carlin started the whole thing with his infamous Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television in 1972. Of course, some DJ at WBAI-FM in California, it’s always a radio DJ and it’s always in California, aired the uncensored version of the bit. A man driving his car with his son was listening in mid-afternoon, was offended, [Read the rest of this article...]
