The Nobility of Working People To Death
It is rather odd to me. Under a Republican President, I will hear how terrible it is when companies ship jobs overseas. Something has to be done about it. When Barack Obama proposes doing something, like rewarding companies who keep the jobs here in the U.S.? Suddenly it is “punishing … Continue Reading The Nobility of Working People To Death
The Mean Media Is Holding Me Accountable
So, a woman said the following at a Santorum town hall: “I never refer to Obama as ‘President Obama’ because legally he is not,” the unidentified woman told Santorum. “He constantly says that our Constitution is passe and he totally ignores it, as you know. He does what he darn … Continue Reading The Mean Media Is Holding Me Accountable
Those Who Teach History Are Doomed To Repeat It
Conservative bristle at the suggestion that Newt Gingrich is “dog whistling” to racists. Yet, when Juan Williams asked a fair question, Newt casually and quickly responded with no thought… he just said no. As if there was nothing to think about. Nothing to consider. A woman stood up and … Continue Reading Those Who Teach History Are Doomed To Repeat It
Delusions Of Grandeur

Who Needs to Be Satisfied With a Check?
So, recently, Newt Gingrich made the comment: And so I’m prepared if the NAACP invites me, I’ll go to their convention and talk about why the African American community should demand paychecks and not be satisfied with food stamps. Oh, zing. Now, it is interesting and says a lot about … Continue Reading Who Needs to Be Satisfied With a Check?
But it is totally different when WE do it.

I Feel Like I Am Watching…
2004 inversed…meaning that almost every candidate the Republicans are fielding feels like John Kerry. Rich, easily portrayed as elitist, “flip floppers”*… with the exception of Rick Santorum. He feels like the less rich version of John Edwards (kind of a values focused guy-two Americas and all that). Newt feels like the … Continue Reading I Feel Like I Am Watching…
Firing People Is Fun!!!
Oh, Mitt Romney. I get what you were saying. You were talking about having the freedom to switch service providers. Hey, I like that freedom as well. If I feel the service I am getting could be better and the provider is not doing the best job? I like the … Continue Reading Firing People Is Fun!!!
It’s (Almost) the Muppet Show Tonight
One of the interesting little things included with the first season of the Muppet Show DVD set is the pilot episode. I use the work interesting because, well, most of it’s value is historical. This is not to say it is entirely devoid of entertainment… but it certainly feels more … Continue Reading It’s (Almost) the Muppet Show Tonight
