Popular Urinalism at Work: No wonder we are fools

26-Apr-14

If you want a good picture of the lack of clear thinking that goes on in the mass media, take a look… doesn’t have to be a close look…at the recent flap over Clivon Bundy. My local newspaper is typical. They are all enraged about how Bundy is a racist and shaming all those Republicans […]

Separation of Church and State… AGAIN!

19-Apr-14

In the late 1820s America was in the midst of the Second Great Awakening, an evangelical Christian movement that dominated public discourse in those formative years. At that time, Christian evangelism spawned, among other political movements, Abolitionism, Zenophobia (Know Nothings opposed immigrants because many were Catholic) and a demand that the United States Postal Service […]

How About a Real Defense of Valor

24-Feb-12

The Supremes spent some time this week hearing arguments about whether it could be a crime to claim falsely to be a war hero. Or, is there a first amendment right to lie? The genesis of this burble is a law that was passed back in 2005 that responded to a small scandal wherein a […]

RIP Roger M. Boisjoly, Go Piss on Ronnie Raygun

06-Feb-12

Roger M. Boisjoly died recently. He is remembered as the rocket scientist for Morton Thiokol who tried to get NASA to call off the launch of the Space Shuttle Challenger. That’s the shuttle that blew up and killed the entire crew and the school teacher and all, on January 28, 1986. Boisjoly and a handful […]

Newt is Right About Shooting the Moon

31-Jan-12

They say if you put a million monkeys to a million typewriters they will eventually produce a novel. Just so Newt Gingrich, who spews an idea a minute, is bound to have a good idea once in a while. I have to say I am disappointed that liberals from Rachel Maddow to Bill Maher have […]

Walmart saves a boat load of bucks!

26-Jan-12

Today’s news tells me that Walmart has decided to no longer have greeters in stores on the graveyard shift. Greeters, as we all know, are those retired geezers that meet you at the door, help with getting a basket and tell you where you can find stuff.   It’s not a great, important position, but […]

Look Out Willard!

11-Jan-12

I have long noted that the GOOP is the dirtiest, scumbaggiest, low-down maggot infested unscrupulous bag of crap that ever played the dirtiest game… politics. The GOOP has no scruples about truth or justice or the American Way when it comes to using the levers of fear, ignorance and hatred to get what it wants. […]

If You Can’t Stand the Heat, Maybe You Are in Hell!

05-Jan-12

When I was young, Christians pretty much kept their mouths shut and went to church. Conspicuous Christians were called holy rollers. They went to little funky churches up in the hollars, listened to Oral Roberts, wore long sleeves and had nervous children. No more. Sometime in the last thirty years holy rollers got into the […]

Medicare gets the Beltway Shuffle

04-Dec-11

Dr. Donald M. Berwick who is the Obama Administration’s appointee to head Medicare and Medicaid is leaving government at the end of the year. He was a recess appointee because the GOOP would not approve his nomination, not for any reason, but just to play politics with appointees. Like they do with all appointees. Berwick […]
