Obama’s AUMF is Actually a DUMF
Right now, everyone in the media, led on by anti-war Democrats and the Obama administration itself, is reporting that Obama has sought an authorization for use of military force (AUMF) to fight ISIS. It is being reported as a bold move for the administration and a shift towards a more hawkish approach to foreign policy in general and with respect to ISIS in particular. This | Read More »

Atheism and support for homosexual marriage: proven indicators of a violent nature
Somebody has to ask the question. Should atheists and supporters of homosexual marriage be allowed to own a firearm? Does adhering to either of these beliefs indicate a mental deficiency, disorder, or infirmity that rises to the level that in the interest of public safety we should insist that they be disarmed? In light of today’s horrible shootings is Chapel Hill, North Carolina, we need | Read More »
Gov. Bruce Rauner (R, Illinois) is… actually going to go to war with the unions.
If I’m not careful, Bruce Rauner may actually make me slightly less cynical about Illinois politics.

Scott Walker Not Done Collecting Skulls for his Throne
After winning two bruising electoral battles in the last 3 years, and making structural changes to Wisconsin’s budget with Act 10, you might be forgiven for thinking that Scott Walker would likely rest on his laurels as he prepares for an anticipated 2016 campaign. You would be wrong. Walker has released his proposed Wisconsin budget for this year and it is loaded with cuts to | Read More »
Feminist aborts baby boy because patriarchy
So what does a young feminist do when she mysteriously finds herself knocked up and she hates all men, even those she chooses to rut with? And, horror, the baby is a boy.
First They Shut You Up, Then You Will Be Made to Care
I have to quibble, slightly, with the Washington Free Beacon’s Sonny Bunch. In a piece last week Sonny wrote that he did not think I was quite right with my phrase “you will be made to care.” Instead, he thought it should be “you will be made to shut up.” I would suggest that he stops too soon. Yes, along the way to making people | Read More »
Obama burns down another US alliance
It is my hope that when a new president is sworn in that we have at least one political or military alliance, other than with Iran, remaining. Right now the smart money would say that we don’t. For decades one of the staunchest allies the United States has in Asia has been Thailand. During the Vietnam War, Thai bases provided platforms to strike at targets | Read More »

Barack Obama Prepares To Govern The Way Mitt Romney Campaigned
Mitt Romney will never be president. He richly deserves it. His infamous comment “I don’t care about the poor” consigned him to the well-deserved ash-heap of failed American Politicians. I was ecstatic when Romney announced he wasn’t running in 2016. His warped and pathetic values on this are indicative of the Chamber of Commerce, Corporatist Republicans that we need to expunge from getting another presidential | Read More »
Supreme Court set to condone homosexual marriage
On Monday, a majority of the Supreme Court allowed homosexual marriages to take place in Alabama despite that state joining three others in appealing rulings that have required states to perform and recognize homosexual marriages despite the will of the people. What makes this significant is that is serves as a signal that the upcoming cases on homosexual marriage are pro forma, a farce, a | Read More »
The Global Warming Scandal Is Political; Not Scientific
It’s a rare day on the blogosphere on which one of your strongly-worded, ideologically-driven invectives of scorn and spite enrages….pretty much everybody*! It’s possibly a sign that I’ve mastered the medium and am doing this stuff the right way. One such post of mine opined that Modern Science needed a version of Sarbanes-Oxley legislation to bring in some methodology to differentiate the science and the | Read More »
Something Wicked This Way Comes
History may not repeat itself, but it does rhyme. Supposedly Mark Twain said that. Whoever actually said it would be in iambic pentameter right now. Yesterday, the Juice Vox Media kids unveiled their propaganda interview with President Obama. Were Vox a Nevada Corporation, it’d have to register as a sex worker considering the rub and tug of the President that the interview amounted to. In | Read More »
Tech at Night: FCC sends a message of a regulated, socialized Internet
By ignoring federalism and imposing the option of socialized Internet nationwide, Tom Wheeler, FCC Chairman, says he’s sending a ‘clear message’. He’s right. He’s sending a message of socialism Combine that with the coming takeover of the Internet, and it’s a terrible situation.
