E2012: Occupy Wall Street

E2012: Occupy Wall Street

In part two of Balls' ongoing animated series, the office discussion turns toward the "Occupy Wall Street" demonstrations and its harmful rhetoric for those 'job-creating' corporate heroes at the top. [Read the rest of this article...]

E2012: Idle Chatter Around the Water Cooler

Monday Musings: April 25, 2011

Monday Musings: April 25, 2011

Happy Easter everyone! Or perhaps Joyous Passover, Wondrous Equinox, Merry Earth Day! After a weekend with family, this is just another Monday here at the Pigeon Post. Another Monday means the beginning to another week of political tomfoolery, television trickery, and sports unspectaculars. The powers that be have never been know for creativity (unless it be creative ways to take more of your money and spend it stimulating their economy); this spring is no different.

Monday Musings: January 10, 2011

Monday Musings: January 10, 2011

Everything I had planned this weekend went up in smoke, but I am finding it hard to complain about much this evening. The plans, and lives, of so many others were shattered Saturday morning in Tucson, Arizona. I spent much of the weekend exchanging thoughts, and the occasional angry word, with political friends and associates regarding our nation's political tone. Is angry rhetoric linked to violence? If so, are the purveyors of such rhetoric directly responsible for the deaths on Saturday? I think the truth of the matter lies somewhere to the calm side of blame and retribution.

Mike On Sports: Weird Thinking and the NFL

Mike On Sports: Weird Thinking and the NFL

In the strange television dominated world of the NFL, many decisions are made solely on individual perceptions of ability completely removed from the measurable statistics of the player. When the right commentator, ex-coach, or columnist tells the right audience that a player is good, no amount of bad stats will change the minds of the average sports fan. When the same sources decide a player is poor, the reaction from the fans, at the stadiums and on sports talk radio, is ruthless. In the ultimate team sport, players and coaches are anointed as successful, whether the stats support the benediction or not. [Read the rest of this article...]

Ballsy Predictions for 2011

Ballsy Predictions for 2011

Balls, on the other hand, will here publish a list of specific, measurable predictions for 2011 and encourage readers to monitor progress throughout the New Year. If any of my predictions fail to come to pass I will stage a public stoning on the grounds of the Balls estate, much to the delight of my many enemies around the globe. I promise that the highly hyped pay-per-view stoning, should it take place, will also manage to somehow materially marginalize the city of Cleveland. Here are ten predictions guaranteed to come to pass in 2011: [Read the rest of this article...]

Working Christmas

Working Christmas

I have family that expressed outrage over the local convenience store being open on Jesus' birthday, and have heard more and more political figures who concur. On reflection, I suppose this whole line of thinking is an off-shoot of the conservative notion of culture war; liberals and other enemies of God are attacking Christmas as a part of their evil scheme to secularize the world. On this notion, the 20% of Americans who are either politically active conservative Christians or militant atheists fail to account for the fact that the rest of the country wants them both to shut up!

An Open Letter to Julian Assange from B Thaddeus Balls

An Open Letter to Julian Assange from B Thaddeus Balls

A cursory reading of your latest work reaffirms my fervent belief that governments around the world are populated with hordes of nitwits plucked from the unhappy end of the bell curve. Now these nitwits, particularly those of American persuasion, are mad as hornets and determined to bring your spying days to a swift and painful ending. Take comfort in knowing that their full fervor and resources have been directed at finding a 6’5” dialysis patient for the last nine years with nary a trace of success!

The Labyrinth Of Liberal Foreign Policy

The Labyrinth Of Liberal Foreign Policy

Liberals have a terrible reputation on foreign policy matters. They are also often bitter that Republicans can get away with mistakes in the foreign policy arena that would quickly sink a liberal. Just try and imagine the national mood had Democrat Al Gore been at the helm of the nation when 9/11 occurred. When the Christmas bombing failed in 2009, President Obama was quickly lambasted by his critics in a jumpy nation, but back on 9/11, we heard Mayor Rudy "9/11" Giuliani say that he felt glad that a Republican was in charge when we came under attack.
