In America it’s pronounced “CUE”

I’m a little miffed and want to write this down. My mother and I went to the local Giunta’s Meat Farms (it’s called MEAT FARMS, how can I not like that place?) and wanted to get a few bottles of wine. There’s a local wine and liquor shop on the other end of the same strip. […]

Ex-CIA officer Jeffrey Sterling jailed for leaking – BBC News

“There has to be a clear message sent to other people at the agency,” she said, explaining that intelligence officers should understand that they, too, will be punished if they disclose classified information. “There’s going to be a price that will be paid.” Source: Ex-CIA officer Jeffrey Sterling jailed for leaking – BBC News Unless […]

Getting carried away

https://twitter.com/#!/cynthiaboaz/status/139599128601706496 This sort of statement is inflammatory and is just another false equivalency. Yes, UC Davis and other militarization of American Police is awful and frightening. But OWS is not a revolution and people really aren’t dying here. Not liking the outcome of elections or how the democracy played out isn’t what’s happening in Egypt. […]

I must be on a Jon Stewart roll

Okay, if you follow Fox news and you buy into the whole “class warfare” nonsense, then you too are an imbecile. You can still watch Fox news (no idea why myself) but don’t buy the spin. When Warren Buffet talks about closing loop holes, people should understand that he know’s what he’s talking about. He […]

Postpartum compassion…?

Oh, that Jon Stewart. It’s almost like he’s coming right out and saying Megyn Kelly is a hypocrite. The best line is this: See this, this is the problem with entitlements. They’re really only entitlements when they’re something other people want. When it’s something you want, they’re a hallmark of a civilized society, the foundation […]

Oompa Loompa for President?

I’m finding it really amazing that this extremely talented con-artist talks about running for the office of the POTUS and the press just eat it up. What next, Howard Stern for office? And don’t think I’m being negative by referring to someone as a con-artist; except for banks (who likes them anyway?) I don’t think […]

Is Arizona’s new motto “Latinos Not Welcomed”?

I’m beginning to believe that Arizona’s State Government just hates anything remotely Latino. For all of that and more, Mr. Acosta’s class and others in the Tucson Unified School District’s Mexican-American program have been declared illegal by the State of Arizona — even while similar programs for black, Asian and American Indian students have been […]

Not TIME’s Man of the Year is right

The more I learn about this man, the more I dislike him. Once Assange and Davies came to agreement over the other documents Assange mentioned in their discussion, Assange passed Davies a password he could use to get at the initial trove, the magazine reports. via WikiLeaks’ Assange Threatened Lawsuit Over Leaked Diplomatic Cables | […]

I think Margaret and Helen get it

This pretty much sums up the difference between Democrats and Republicans. For instance, I have learned that when Democrats over-reach, we end up providing health insurance coverage for children who have pre-existing conditions. When Republicans over-reach, we go to war. via Higher Ground « Margaret and Helen. Margaret and Helen are always a good read. […]

Election 2010

Today, like so many people, I voted once again. This year I am not making my usual joke about vote early and vote often. This mid-term election has been brutal to watch on a national level. There is a lot of anger about the economy, about the wars, and about politics. And as usual, there […]
