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 […]

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 […]

Jon Stewart is a comedian?

The Daily Show should be required viewing for anyone looking to get into public service. I do like and admire President Obama, but Jon Stewart’s video clip really highlights that all politicians lie. President Obama is getting a beating in the polls because of the BP oil spill. But where it really counts, we’re getting […]

What a fun week it’s been

This past week some interesting events occurred. First, there was a special election in Massachusetts and then there was the SCOTUS ruling that says corporate entities (and unions) can’t be limited in advertising bombing the electorate. That Scott Brown got elected is really a non-issue. People vote and get elected all the time and I […]

President Obama ran for MA senate seat?

Martha Coakley lost the election in Massachusetts. She ran a poor campaign and was a bad choice for political office, that’s all. So even without me checking, I know that many people will start touting this as “GOP begins takeover of the Senate! Obama’s going down as a FAILURE!!” None of which is a surprise, […]

Best Pat Robertson response

This is few days old but the best response to Pat Robertson’s Haiti-devil nonsense. Although The Daily Show has a good response too around 1 minute in. Giving to the earthquake relief is a good thing and the poor people of Haiti need all the help that can be provided.  But why do we suddenly […]

Well that would sure end Democracy

No matter what risk to passengers, Unions Must Be STOPPED! DeMint said Wednesday that he is concerned that Southers would let TSA screeners join a labor union. via GOP Senator Says Dems Trying to Rush TSA Nominee – NYTimes.com. Laughable. It must be nice being in the Party of No, not really much to do […]

The most important election was decided last night

This morning I heard the results of an election I was following: NY-23 went to Bill Owens. Just to be clear, NY-23 is a district that is on the Canadian border and except for it being a special election it was no big deal. What made it a big deal is that when a moderate […]

Factually correct makes it fun reading

The best part of Frank Rich’s article is that his examples are dead on. Michael Steele’s words are just pure comedy gold. The hearings were pure “Alice in Wonderland.” Reality was turned upside down. Southern senators who relate every question to race, ethnicity and gender just assumed that their unreconstructed obsessions are America’s and that […]
