SEEING CONVENTIONS THROUGH INTERCEPT EYES…

July 27th, 2016

I’m finding that the reporting coming from Mattathias Schwartz, Alice Speri, Rania Khalek, Zaid Jilani and the rest of the team at The Intercept to be the best of this year’s conventions. The comedians like Samantha Bee and Larry Wilmore (above and below) are doing excellent jobs as well, but the serious journalism is happening […]

BRINGING FEELINGS TO A FACT FIGHT…

NINA TURNER AND JILL STEIN IN 2016…?

July 17th, 2016

When I checked my stats for yesterday I noticed a sudden interest in a post from 13 February: NINA TURNER A VICE PRESIDENTIAL CONTENDER…? In that post I wrote: So, yesterday I got into a fairly heated debate with a co-worker about Hilary Clinton vs. Bernie Sanders. At one point I said that there were […]

PULL MY DAiSY, 1959…

July 15th, 2016

Found in James Campbell’s Ginsberg, Kerouac and Burroughs: celebrating the Beats in Paris. The tile comes from a collaborative poem by the same title by Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, Neal Cassady which begins: Pull my daisy tip my cup all my doors are open Cut my thoughts for coconuts all my eggs are broken Jack […]

THEY WENT BEYOND THE FRINGE 55 YEARS AGO…

July 14th, 2016

I’ve referenced this show a number of times, but I keep forgetting to post the entire video, so here you go. While you should watch the entire video, the bit I keep referencing begins at timemark 5:10 with Jonathan Miller’s description of our American two-party system.

DOES ANY OF THIS SOUND FAMILIAR…? HMMM…?

June 28th, 2016

(Sorry for the vertical clipping. The top is sliced off in the original YouTube.) From where I sit this morning, change Britain to America and Jews to Muslims (or if you’re British, forget the former and only change the latter) and 1946 becomes 2016.

THIS COULD BE TRUE. MAYBE?

DRAFT EVERY WOMAN, AND MAN, TODAY…

June 21st, 2016

In yet another example of news I’ve missed, the United States Senate voted two weeks ago to take the common sense step of requiring that women be required to register for the Selective Service in exactly the same as men are required to do. I found about the news in the typical, and insane, way […]

COULD THE AARP TAKE OUT THE NRA…?

June 20th, 2016

Larry Wilmore and his panel had this to add. A great deal is written about the absolute power of the lobbyists for the National Rifle Association. There is another, possible more powerful, lobbying group: the American Association of Retired Persons. As horrible as the murders in Orlando were, I’m not surprised that Congress did exactly […]
