good on Ned…

Crooks and Liars has the Colbert Report with Ned Lamont posted. He was quick, and he said right things. It would be absolutely delicious to pull this off. Joe Lieberman brought it on himself for who knows what reasons. This is not a partisan fight, it’s a fight for America. So, "Go Ned!" We could […]

down to brass tacks…

It’s coming up on six years of the Bush Administration, and five years since the 911 attack that brought down the World Trade Towers. They have unfalteringly stayed on the same course – dismantling everything in the government that doesn’t fit the big business agenda, eliminating social and environmental programs, pandering to the sickest side […]

goodbye Condi…

She’s been sent to the Middle East to carry the pre-planned U.S. message – we will only support a cease fire when Israel wins, or Israel neutralizes Hezbollah, or Hezbollah agrees to cease fire conditions that insure Israel’s goals. Since none of those things are going to happen, she’ll fail. Then the neocons [who are […]

mono-theism…

  Monotheism certainly gets complicated, but I don’t think it’s ever going to work. I’m not kidding about that. Right now, the Christian fundamentalists have taken over the United States. The United States, having been attacked by Moslem fundamentalists, has attacked the Islamic State of Iraq resulting in a Civil War there among Islamic Sects. […]

NASA Scientist, James Hansen, reports that he is not allowed to speak about his scientific work by order of the White House. His yearly report […]

good news!

At least one pastor understands Christianity and what it is supposed to be about. Lets hope he’s an evangelical who spreads his "good news" and puts an end to scenes like the one in the picture. [hat tip to Sharon for the link]

The Straw Man Fallacy strikes again…

Rove Blasts Journalists’ Role in Politics. Does anyone else notice that it’s always Rove "blasts" something or another? His divisiveness is one of their major tools. When he recently talked about his usual favorites, Liberals, it was about a group headed for extinction because of their absurd beliefs. Now he talks about the Press as […]

less than zero…

[Boy, I've got a lot to get off of my chest today]. To follow up on a previous thought, there was a movie, Less than Zero, a paradoxical movie about the dangers of Cocaine Addiction starring Robert Downey Jr. [see what I mean about paradox?]. It’s the title that’s always stuck with me. The reason […]
