A TOPIC OF PRAYER/THOUGHT THIS MORNING…?

July 24th, 2016

I wonder if Mike realizes that when he went all in for John Anderson in 1980 that he was one of the butterflies that helped to produce Hurricane Donald?

LEONARD NEMOY* HAD ANTONIN SCALIA KILLED…

February 14th, 2016

Stephenson Billings, fantasizing in Did Leonard Nimoy Have Antonin Scalia Killed to Give Obama Enough Supreme Court Votes to Cancel the 2016 Election? writes: The wild card in this equation is likely Leonard Nimoy, who various leaked reports have identified as the newest leader of the Illuminati [:), JH]. While there is much debate about […]

ANOTHER LETTER-TO-THE-EDITOR…

September 20th, 2014

This is the letter-to-the-editor I’m sending to The Marietta Times in response to Glenna Clutter’s letter this morning calling David Burton a mild-mannered and intelligent man. Clutter went on to write that Burton’s reasoned explanations make sense to those not too deaf to listen. He does not peddle hate and intolerance, but he does promote […]

MARK TWAIN UNDERSTOOD THE DANGER OF LIES…

September 20th, 2014

Reader Fred O’Neill writes: “The Man Who Came to Dinner” at the Republican fall fiesta this year, is an influential, Texas-based, evangelical guru who receives lots of free-meals by peddling revisionist notions about the role of religion in American history. The problem is that David Barton knows about as much about American history as I […]

DEBUNKING DAVID BARTON’S LIES…

September 20th, 2014

—From Chris Rodda, author of Debunking David Barton’s Jefferson Lies. Prior to about a week ago I knew nothing of David Barton other than he was one of the religious wrong and influential in tea-bagger circles. I’ve since begun to educate myself because of Barton’s visit to my hometown. What makes Barton so hard to […]

DAVID BARTON TO VISIT MY HOMETOWN…

September 8th, 2014

As election time approaches, political organizations and their candidates usually try to dodge labels and avoid controversy, but, to their credit, the members of the Washington County Republican Executive Committee have apparently decided to (as military parlance suggests) “embrace the suck”, and engage in total truth-in-advertising (a rare move indeed for local Republicans). By selecting […]

OFFICIAL: NRA NOW NANCIES RIFLE ASSOCIATION…

June 4th, 2014

The National [Nincompoops/Nutters/Nimrods/Nutty/Numbskulls/Nut-jobs JH] Rifle Association has disavowed its recent criticism of pro-gun demonstrations in Texas. In an interview on Tuesday with the organization’s own news site, the head of the NRA’s lobbying arm blamed a staff member’s “personal opinion” for the content of an unsigned statement published Friday on the organization’s website, and he […]

HEARTLAND INSTITUTE IS A LYING SACK OF SHITS…

May 1st, 2014

How do you read this quote from George Carlin: There’s a reason education sucks, it’s the same reason that it will never, ever, ever be fixed. It’s never going to get any better, don’t look for it, be happy with what you got. Because the owners of this country don’t want that. I’m talking about […]

I FAVOR THE CONSTITUTION OVER THE FLAG…

March 20th, 2014

I’m always suspicious of those whose noses get all out of joint because the America flag is ill-treated in a political protest protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, but don’t break a sweat when our Constitution itself is treated like a nose rag. This 2010 protest in Phoenix was in reaction […]

WHY DEMOCRATS LACK DISCIPLINE…

July 25th, 2013

Robert Reich writes: Republican discipline and Democratic lack of discipline isn’t a new phenomenon. As Will Rogers once said, “I’m not a member of any organized political party. I’m a Democrat.” The difference has to do with the kind of personalities the two parties attract. People who respect authority, follow orders, want clear answers, obey […]

MY STUDENT RECOMMENDED I WATCH THIS…

September 3rd, 2012

One of my students, a young man wrestling with society, politics, spirituality and science, told me I had to see this. The punch line was what grabbed him: “The Tea Party is the American Taliban.” Except it isn’t. The Tea Party is many things, starting with bought and paid for by the our American Oligarchy […]

ANOTHER TRAGIC VICTIM OF FAUX NEWS…

July 24th, 2012

We need a 12-step program for Faux News addicts. From this morning’s edition of my hometown daily: I have heard enough of the Obama clan and their subservient toadies accusing all, who don’t subscribe to their radical raping of the USA, as waging war on some facet of American life. Websters defines war as, “A […]

IS TALKING WITH THE TEA PARTY FUTILE…?

July 17th, 2012

Matt Taibbi wrote: Snickering readers in New York or Los Angeles might be tempted by all of this to conclude that Bachmann is uniquely crazy. But in fact, such tales by Bachmann work precisely because there are a great many people in America just like Bachmann, people who believe that God tells them what condiments […]

SUMMARY EXECUTION FOR TREASON IN MISSISSIPPI…

June 30th, 2012

Glenn Greenwald rightly asks: But what’s the principled distinction that makes assassinating Awlaki acceptable but not Nicholson? The most likely answer is that Awlaki was in Yemen while Nicholson is in the U.S., but that’s just a pragmatic difference, one that cannot make any legal or Constitutional difference: American citizens don’t renounce their Constitutional protections […]

MIDNIGHT IN THE GOP’S AMERICA…

February 26th, 2012

They took women away when they tested positive., They always came back, but they didn’t seem the same. And most of the time they were visibly pregnant in a few months. Grace had never managed to convince one to talk about what had happened, but that was mostly her fault, not theirs. Once someone was […]
