RESPECT…

May 4th, 2015

Fox News comedian Geraldo Rivera came for the show and got shown the door. Geraldo Rivera was an unpopular presence in Baltimore this week, and never more so than when he encountered Kwame Rose, a young protester whose interruption of a broadcast for Fox News on Tuesday night went viral. As Rivera was setting up […]

Tin soldiers and Nixon coming, We’re finally on our own. This summer I hear the drumming, Four dead in Ohio. Gotta get down to it Soldiers are cutting us down Should have been done long ago. What if you knew her And found her dead on the ground How can you run when you know? […]

ROLDO RIGHTS ON SHOULD WE EXPECT VIOLENCE?…

April 30th, 2015

There has been some talk about what will happen in Cleveland after the judge decides on the court case of Cleveland police officer Michael Brelo in the shooting deaths of two people. The reason for this concern, of course, evolves from the violent reaction in Baltimore to the death of Freddie Gray while in custody […]

PREACHING NONVIOLENCE: BETRAYAL, RUSE, CON

April 29th, 2015

Ta-Nehisi Coates writes: Now, tonight, I turn on the news and I see politicians calling for young people in Baltimore to remain peaceful and “nonviolent.” These well-intended pleas strike me as the right answer to the wrong question. To understand the question, it’s worth remembering what, specifically, happened to Freddie Gray. An officer made eye […]

THE BUSH(ES) OBAMA SECURITY SCHEME LIVES ON…

April 21st, 2015

The BOSS isn’t going anywhere soon. Even if Hilary Clinton takes the White House, not a pleasant thought, we will only need to tweak the acronym a bit to perhaps BOCSS, rhymes with box? Glenn Greenwald writes: One of the most glaring myths propagated by Washington — especially the two parties’ media loyalists — is […]

WHAT FEMINIST FOREIGN POLICY LOOKS LIKE…?

April 8th, 2015

As I follow the continuing story of blogger Raif Badawi, I note that only one country has chosen to go eye-to-eye with Saudi Arabia and not blink: Sweden. Madeline Rees, Secretary General of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom sees in that resolute stance, essentially the beginnings of sanctions against the Saudi royal […]

SNOWDEN, THE NSA AND YOUR DICKAGE…

April 7th, 2015

Glenn Greenwald had this to say: On his HBO program last night, John Oliver devoted 30 minutes to a discussion of U.S. surveillance programs, advocating a much more substantive debate as the June 1 deadline for renewing the Patriot Act approaches (the full segment can be seen here). As part of that segment, Oliver broadcast […]

RELIGIOUS WRONG LOSING HATE CAMPAIGN…

April 4th, 2015

Hating the sin but loving the sinner still brands you as a hater and increasingly makes you irrelevant in any political discussion in the United States of America. The latest stealth campaign from the religious wrong to banish members of the Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transgender-Questioning community from political and social commerce is falling flat despite the best efforts […]

I’M TO THE RIGHT OF RAND PAUL…? WHOA…!

April 4th, 2015

Since his father turned over his emailing list the begs from Rand Paul are coming fast and furious. The one I got this morning bears the suspicious subject line: RE:Obama seeking third term? Oh course, there is no mention in the email about President Barack Hussein Obama seeking to repeal the 22nd Amendment to the […]

FBI FABRICATES ANOTHER BOMB PLOT…

April 3rd, 2015

Has the Federal Bureau of Investigation discovered a single domestic threat to the United States since 11 September 2001 that didn’t involve an FBI informant? The story of Noelle Velentza and Asia Siddiqui is just one more case of FBI fabrication, duping two possibly wanna-bes who would likely never have been a threat if their […]

RANDPAC: COMING FOR YOUR FREEDOM…

April 2nd, 2015

As part of a political prank a few years ago, I bought a t-shirt and some leaflets from Ron Paul’s organization. Since then I have gotten regular pleas for financial support—including a monthly raffle for an AR-15, a patriot must-have—but today I got this beg (all emphasis in original) for money from Ron Paul’s son […]

THIS IS NOT WHAT GEORGE HARRISON WANTED…

March 30th, 2015

In my moldy and decayed collection of eight-track tapes there was (I tossed them all two moves ago, but kept a list of what I had) was the two-tape collection of George Harrison’s Concert for Bangladesh, the mother of all benefit concerts. George and all the musicians who came together would not be happy with […]

ROLDO RIGHTS ON NO TAX BREAKS FOR SPORTS…

March 28th, 2015

This week President Barack Obama spoke out against the incredible subsidy sweeteners given rich sports owners. In a historic move, President Obama’s new budget proposes eliminating the longstanding practice by governments of forcing taxpayers to foot the bill for wealthy sports franchises to build, renovate, and maintain costly stadiums. For far too long, this shameless […]

ROLDO RIGHTS ON: SURPRISE, SURPRISE,
REALITY BEGINS TO HIT CUYAHOGA COUNTY…

March 27th, 2015

Wow, what a surprise! Cuyahoga County seems to be running out of money. Can’t borrow, County Executive Armond Budish tells the Plain Dealer. Can’t borrow for MetroHealth Medical Center but can for a hotel that will be a big money loser. Great Democratic politics. And the PD didn’t know about this? What another surprise. Especially […]

SCOTT ADAMS IS CONDUCTING ANOTHER TEST…

March 25th, 2015

Last week Scott Adams asked about gender bias in the workplace. This week he explores the issue of anti-science bias in politics and who is worse: Republicans or Democrats. (In light of Robert Kennedy Jr.’s vocal support for the anti-vaccination crowd this week, I think this is particularly pertinent.) Against all odds, it appears my […]
