War, Indeed, Is Hell

But the question remains, are we executing a proper strategy in Iraq?
Imagine this. Your Iraqi. You have an 8 year old son. He’s walking home from school one day and spies some interesting yellow chord on the side of the road. He stoops over, examines the piece. Finding […]

Is Freedom Salve Enough To Cure What Ails the Globe?

When GW suggested that he was engaged in the defining ideological struggle of the 21st century, he wasn’t kidding. If you take a look at his address delivered today at the UN, it’s riddled with unbridled rhetoric designed…wel l, to do what?

This great […]

He might be an anti-war activist, but he’s also a money-grubbing sob

The phrase “Bush Lied” was superimposed over the names. As the casualty count grew, the bumper sticker became a T-shirt, and Frazier added the words “They Died.”

As soon as I get my tattoo, I’m signing up to become one of the live moles in a new carnival game called human whack-a-mole […]

How Do We Know Who The Enemy Is: Repirse

I’ve got a new dentist. She’s awesome. But I get ahead of myself.
I had my regular cleaning slated last week. Every six months if I need it or not. Never had a cavity, and every dentist I’ve had says that it’s pretty much going to stay that way. “It’s […]
