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 »

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 »

This is Important
This is important. The tolerance-loving terrorist apologists, having failed to dissuade Benjamin Netanyahu from canceling his speech before a joint session of Congress, are now trying to astroturf the issue. They have the Anti-Defamation League in their corner. They’ve got the Israeli press making noises that Bibi should cancel.

Bobby Jindal Versus the Lily-Livered
It’s another budget year in Louisiana, which means that it’s time for the annual festival in which lily-livered Republicans and the media they enable gather to wring their hands about Bobby Jindal’s fiscal policies.
