Freedom of Cluelessness, er, Speech

Thanks for this to my oldest friend Chris - wait a minute, that didn’t come out right, I have friends that are older, he and I are the same age, but we’ve been friends since ninth grade so he’s got seniority… anyway, Chris sent me this link to a Daily Show piece about the Berkeley […]

Killing Saddam “Was Thing Right Decision Then; It’s The Right Deicision Today…”

One can never fault the president for going off message as he spins his reality his way. Have a look at this interesting response to a very interesting question and see what you think. While you read the president (unscripted as the way I like to read him) ask yourself if he is […]

Your Rights Haven’t Been Violated, You’ve Been “Minimized”

I love the political rhetorical spin the W, Rove and Co has deployed to try and get out of a tight spot now and again. You might enjoy this exchange as some “Senior Administrati on Official (SAO)” who will be nameless tries to explain why the telecommunic ations industry may need immunity from lawsuits […]

Chickenhawks: What Makes Them Tick

Whatever you want to call them — Chickenhawks  , Keyboard Warriors, the Chairborne Division — this species has been with us for a long time.
This article by Glenn Greenwald offers a glimpse into that pitiful mindset. There’s nothing new about today’s armchair warrior who bravely fights Evil and Terror from behind his computer console. In […]

3:10 to Berkeley

I took a day trip to Arizona. I waited and waited for my plane on the way back this afternoon to show like the train did in the movie. (At least that train was only minutes late) An honest man, left at the station a hero… speaking of heroes:
So what the fuck is up with […]

Iraqi War: What is it Good For?

Iraqmire — the gift that keeps on giving. Thanks to our soldiers’ long tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan — and too short a rest period between tours — America’s military readiness has been jeopardized. Our military forces are now less prepared to respond to a new crisis.
The Pentagon wants to improve this situation […]

Did you celebrate Colin Powell Day?

Yesterday was the fifth anniversary of Colin Powell’s speech to the United Nations Security Council to push for war with Iraq. Powell’s speech, as we now know, was full of lies. His speech was entitled: Iraq, failing to disarm. He even had a nifty slide show for the attendees. Behind him sat George Tenet, then […]

The Sun Never Sets on the American Empire

The February 2008 issue of American Legion Magazine has an article entitled “Over There: Where In The Word We Are” by Alan W. Dowd. The article isn’t available online yet. The author has a website here. His earlier articles are accessible but not this current one.
The United States has nearly half a million troops stationed […]

This Just In: George W. Bush is a Lying M#$%&$F#!$%&

If you have at least two brain cells to rub together, you’ve already known this since 2002 if not before.
For me that moment of clarity (or “DUUHH” moment, whatever you want to call it) occurred during the summer of 2002. The Enron and Harken (Bush’s former company) scandals were all over the headlines. Bush made […]
