A Greater Truth Never Written

Not surprisingly, it’s written by The Onion: Everybody has this image of “crazy Christians” based on what they hear in the media, but it’s just not true. Most Christians are normal, decent folks. We don’t all blindly follow a bunch of outdated biblical tenets or go all fanatical about every bit of dogma. What I’m trying to say is, don’t […]

Hope is a Four-Letter Word

Hope is a Four-Letter Word

After a week of heading down, down, down, on Friday the Dow Jones Industrial Average surged again after about 3 p.m. Just before that surge came the announcement by President-Elect (love that phrase, “President-Elect”) Barack Obama that he was naming New York Fed president Timothy Geithner as his Treasury Secretary. He did that and here was the result: Yet Rush […]

WSJ: Non-Christians Have Ruined the Economy

I’ve read and re-read this editorial column by Daniel Henninger and the only synopsis I can come up with is simply that, according to him, “Non-Christians Have Ruined the Economy”. Henninger, a Pulitzer Prize-winning deputy editor for the Wall Street Journal‘s editorial page, in a bizarrely convoluted series of steps, links the move away from saying “”Merry Christmas” to the […]

Bush: The Man Nobody Likes. Nobody.

This is George W. Bush, the president of the United States of America, at the G20 financial summit. As he walks on stage, EVERYBODY is shaking hands with the person in front of him and the person in back of him but NOBODY shakes his hand. Hell, they don’t even look him in the eye. Imagine if Barack Obama was […]

Keeping the Obama Energy Going

During the week after the election, I attended a number of “victory parties” to celebrate our achievement. Mostly they were organized by people we had spent the previous three months campaigning with. Something about canvassing and phone banking and watch debates together really bonded us and we wanted to get together and have some fun that didn’t involve work! My […]

Oh So [UN]Classy

Oh So [UN]Classy

Bitter much? [Marilyn] Musgrave, a Republican who’s been representing Colorado’s 4th District since 2002, became part of the Republican Casualty List when she lost in a landslide, even after the National Republican Congressional Committee doled out almost a million bucks (reportedly $900,000) for her campaign. Two weeks after the brutal loss, Musgrave still hasn’t called her opponent to concede or […]

Ted Stevens: You’re FIRED!!!

Ted Stevens: You’re FIRED!!!

Convicted felon, Senator Ted Stevens (Douchebag-AK) has been defeated in his bid to retain his seat in Congress. He was the longest serving felon Senator in the Senate and the longest serving Republican Senator ever. His seat will be filled by Anchorage mayor, Mark Begich, a noted non-felon. And for that, the world rejoiced. Good-bye Senator Douchebag. Enjoy your time […]

Bailing Out the Auto Companies

I am so ambivalent about the entire discussion surrounding the Big Three auto companies asking for a $25 billion bailout. Truly ambivalent. First of all, I have been a loud and frequent critic of these dinosaurs of the business world. They have relentlessly pumped out gas-guzzling Humscalade after oil-gulping SubdivisionBlazer with absolutely no regard for either the environmental destruction they […]

The Bush Pillage Continues

It is sooooo good to be the king[‘s bankers]. For example, you can get a handout from the tax-payers of America to the tune of $154 BILLION and turn around and give your execs $504 MILLION in bonuses. Now that is sweet, you have to admit. That’s what you can do if you’re AIG, for example. And why can you […]

David Byrne on the Obama Victory + More

I am a fairly frequent reader of David Byrne’s journal/blog. He’s been pretty excited and upbeat and heartened by Barack Obama’s victory in the presidential election. As someone who travels the whole world over, I think his perspectives on the impact of this election on both the United States of America and on the world as a whole are worth […]
