KILL THE UNPATRIOTIC ACT AND START OVER…

May 25th, 2015

I have to wonder how much blowback Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) faces for his grandstanding on the floor of the Senate in opposition to legislation continuing one of the worst, and most grossly misinterpreted, sections of the U.S. Patriot Unpatriotic Act. Edward Snowden had this to say about Paul’s filibuster. It represents a sea change […]

May 20th, 2015

If you read the sketchy New York Times article on the Delta Force raid into Syria a few days ago—how an ISIS leader was killed when he “tried to engage” American commandos while his fighters used women and children as shields, and an 18-year-old slave was freed with no civilian casualties thanks to “very precise […]

THE LIES OF OBAMA AND ZERO DARK THIRTY

May 19th, 2015

Get More: Comedy Central,Funny Videos,Funny TV Shows There is nothing funny about the murder of a 12-year-old child playing in a park, yet, in the bizarre media universe in which we exist, a comedian, with a show on a cable network devoted to comedy, finds a way to make the absurdity of a mother still […]

1976-2016, I COULD FEEL GOOD VOTING AGAIN…

May 5th, 2015

In 1976, at the age of 21, I cast my first vote for president. Jimmy Carter was not anyone’s front runner, but he appeared in the national consciousness at a time when the American voters were rabid for change. Carter is the only Democratic Party presidential candidate that I still feel good about giving my […]

Fox News comedian Geraldo Rivera came for the show and got shown the door.

As Rivera was setting up […]

The whale circled Hercules several times and gave our cameras the chance to capture some incredible footage of this beautiful creature. Encounters between sperm whales and ROVs are incredibly rare. E/V Nautilus is […]

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 […]

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 […]

HOW DO WE FIX CAPITALISM…?

March 24th, 2015

As we approach the 8th anniversary of our most recent Minsky Moment we still do not know how to prevent the next one. What we ought to know is that repeating the prophylactics of the past is, by one popular definition of the word bat-shit crazy insane, well, insane. Could the answer come from a […]

One of my nephews, upon graduation from high school, proclaimed that he would never have to read another book again. That is bad, but I know there are people who will think this 5 minute and 28 second video too long and boring to watch. From Nancie Atwell, the first recipient of the $1 million […]

DALTON TRUMBO: REBEL IN HOLLYWOOD

March 23rd, 2015

As a rule, I don’t watch the extras on DVDs because I have found them generally to be masturbatory filler. This has not been the case with the documentary Dalton Trumbo: Rebel In Hollywood found on 2009 DVD release. This hour-long documentary explores the career of Dalton Trumbo, his struggles as a member of the […]
