APOCALYPSE COW…

WAS JACK BAUER THE ANTI-FINCH…?

April 22nd, 2014

I’ve been watching Person Of Interest of late, and I’ve been struck by a comparison of two topical and timely television characters–Harold Finch and Jack Bauer–and the way they are nearly mirror images. Jack Bauer, played by Kiefer Sutherland on Fox’s 24 for eight seasons (2001-2010, and making a limited comeback next month) is Fox […]

Tom O’Donnell writes: Bitcoins are the ultimate currency: virtual, anonymous, stateless. They represent true economic freedom, not subject to arbitrary manipulation by any government. Do we have any leads?” “Not yet. But mark my words: we’re going to figure out who did this and we’re going to take them down … provided someone pays us […]

A WHOLE GENERATION DOESN’T KNOW…

March 17th, 2014

1991 is not that long ago. I watched the hearings. You can watch the hearings and see for yourself how we put one of the most reactionary, anti-poor, anti-civil rights, anti-women right wing judges on the Supreme Court. From the New York Times: [Anita Hill] published a memoir in 1997; the following year, she joined […]

DEAR ZELDA…

March 8th, 2014

Dear Zelda, Here’s the scenario: when the boss sees co-workers having a quiet conversation, he wants to know what is being said (it’s mostly work related). He has his designated “snitches” and expects them to keep him apprised of all the office gossip – even calling them at home and expecting a run-down! This puts […]

OUR GAME, OUR RULES, DEAL…

March 4th, 2014

Glenn Greenwald writes: The vast bulk of the commentary issuing from American commentators about the Russian military action in Ukraine involves condemning exactly that which they routinely advocate and which the U.S. itself routinely does. So suffocating is the resulting stench that those who played leading roles in selling the public the attack on Iraq […]

AWESOME…?*

Via Zen Pencils… Previously… *I like Green, but he should loose the This Machine Kills Fascists sticker on his laptop. Woody Guthrie had a concept and I’ll give Pete Seeger a pass as righteous homage, but everyone else, you’re just sad. And, oh, about awesome.

EDWARD SNOWDEN SPEAKS…

February 2nd, 2014

Mano Singham writes: After watching the 30-minute interview I can understand why the US government is freaking out. Snowden comes across as a thoughtful, calm, intelligent, and articulate person who chooses his words very carefully and makes the case for why what he did was right in a very compelling way. Put this guy up […]

HAPPY FUCKING NSA NEW YEAR…

December 31st, 2013

Mano Singham writes: Does anyone seriously still think that all this is just to counter the efforts of groups of low-budget malcontents with primitive technology? What we are seeing is the attempt by elements within the US government for full-spectrum dominance over the entire world. All of us are just ciphers, with no more privacy […]

I’VE NEVER WATCHED GLEE, NOW IS A GOOD TIME…

December 24th, 2013

When an organization tagged One Million Moms (with the backing of American Family Association, American Family Radio, Repairing the Foundations, One News Now, AFA Journal, The AFA Foundation and EWomen [the mates of The Knights Who Say Nee perhaps?]) hates a show they guarantee high viewership. I’m betting that this episode breaks some kind of […]
