Cut Me A Break

Cut Me A Break

Many moons ago, Phil Donahue did an entire TV talk show episode on how women, white/black/all-of-the-above say yes when they mean no, say no when they mean yes, and that men are supposed to know the difference between the two. Well, he had the entire audience of women screaming and laughing, that yes; that's what they do and only they themselves know what they're doing. Good luck on the book.

We Need More Kings

We Need More Kings

White pythons, lions and tigers, all waiting to serve with a photo op. Prior to dinner, Roger's wife was carried into the room Cleopatra-style by a legion of scantilly clad young bucks. Not to be out done, Roger entered riding an Elephant to cheers from the throngs who were drinking and eating on his nickle. Dinner came next with an all-female band that played through the multi-course feast. Which was a prelude to the main act... [Read the rest of this article...]

Burger Diplopmacy

Burger Diplopmacy

Can you imagine if all conflicts could be negotiated over burgers and fries? North Korea. Somalia. Iran. Iraq. Afghanistan. Pick one. We, as Americans, appear to be hell bent on enforcing our culture and values (values?) on the rest out the world. Let it be burgers. Rice schmice. Taco schmacko. Get that foreign (PC: International) leader to travel to Arlington, VA. for burgers and fries (and a Coke) and now we are talkin' turkey. A great many world leaders sent their kids to America for an education anyway, so by way of osmosis, they know the inherent value of ground beef with stuff on top. The dream of every beauty queen and Sandra Bullock, World Peace. [Read the rest of this article...]

Lowest Common Denominator Politics: McChrystal Out

Lowest Common Denominator Politics: McChrystal Out

So now McChrystal gets the axe and Obama puts Petraeus in charge of Afghanistan. It's not so much the fact that McChrystal was doing a great job in taking back control of Afghanistan, for he was on a path with no victory and no end. It is the fact that President Obama is so quick to oust anyone who has the audacity to speak ill of his War Mongering in Afghanistan -- quite similar if not fully identical to the W. Administration.

Republican Masochism

Republican Masochism

The modern Republican Party has become a model of self-contradiction. A party loaded to the rafters with self-proclaimed freedom-lovers was forced to justify a systematic destruction of civil liberties; acts perpetrated by a Republican President and Republican Congress under the auspices of the Patriot Act and the Military Commissions Act. Conservatives had to find methods for dealing with the same Republican power structure as it violated the tenants of fiscal conservatism by doubling the national debt; debt that had been reduced by the fiscal policies of the previous Democratic administration. Finally, Republican stalwarts heard Mr. Bush repeatedly claim to listen to the generals, then watched as he fired one soldier after another who [Read the rest of this article...]

The Pope Smokes Dope

The Pope Smokes Dope

Of course, this Vatican endorsement might have been an end-around-reverse trick play to continue to divert attention away from their own global catastrophe - priests abusing little boys. Although the sexual abuse disaster hit the legal system in 2001, it hasd been going on for at least 50 years. [Read the rest of this article...]

The Gaza War

The Gaza War

War is coming in the Levant...again. War is coming just as surely as Winter follows the Fall. The Netanyahu Government in Tel Aviv wants a war; they are certain they can handle most of the Islamic states that surround Israel, and positive that the United States will be bullied into taking care of the rest. Elements in the united States want war; the Cheney mentality, nurtured by the AIPAC block, believes that war is not just inevitable, but a fulfillment of divine providence. Finally; many in the streets and governments of the Islamic states surrounding Israel want war. [Read the rest of this article...]

Times Square Bomber-to-Be Pleads Guilty

Times Square Bomber-to-Be Pleads Guilty

Somewhere along the way, be it through the American occupation of Iraq, the war in Afghanistan or the drone attacks on his native Pakistan, Faisal Shahzad acquired a hatred of all things westernized and developed a radical Islamic fervor and made the ultimate attempt at blind hatred, destruction and murder. Rather than living a mundane suburban existence in the New York City parking lot known as Connecticut, Mr. Shahzad is nothing more than a terrorist; and a failed one at that.

Abortion: From the Middle

Abortion: From the Middle

Abortion is just one of those topics, the mere mention of which is likely to end conversation and begin fisticuffs. If ever there was a polarizing issue in American politics, this is it. If ever there was a bi-polarizing issue in American politics, this is also it. The Los Angeles Times Poll in 2000 neatly sums up the bi-polar aspect; 57% believed that abortion was murder, 67% believed the decision should be between a women and her doctor.
