Homophobes, religious faith and right wing fanatics share the same fear

American military male homophobes incessantly whine that to allow gays into my foxhole means I could be seduced or raped and so I couldn’t concentrate on killing the enemy because those fags wouldn’t be there to protect my ass, but to attack it. Lesbians aren’t technically allowed in the foxhole, yet if allowed to have [...]

America needs immediate treatment for its AA addiction to itself

American Arrogance not only leads us into unnecessary wars and other international disasters it also means our execution of these failed-from-the-start missions is woefully inadequate. That’s because Americans continue to insist that they are superior to everyone else in the world. When you are superior that means you know better than those inferiors you are [...]

Shameful Bowing Ignorance

I’m well aware that facts are irrelevant when it comes to Repugs and RWCAs. They daily show American voters their exceptional hypocrite skills and choice of choosing power over facts and what is best for our nation. On Obama’s trip to Japan, they saw our president bending low when greeting the Emperor and immediately concluded [...]

War Hawks and President Obama, the COST is much too high

Frank Rich in his op-ed today really nailed the Afghanistan myths and the War Hawks deadly foolish desire to send 40-80,00 more troops into a mission and country they clearly don’t understand: McChrystal thinks we might even jolly up those Muslims who historically and openly hate America. “I don’t think much of the Taliban are [...]

NEW GOVERNMENT HEALTH PLOT: ALL AMERICANS’ RECORDS TO BE ONLINE SOON; VETERANS ADMINISTRATION ADMITS PARTIAL RESPONSIBILITY

I saw my VA health man the other day, to talk about my meds – including weighing the pros and cons of going on a cholesterol-lowering drug; plus I asked for an eye exam and had blood drawn. Everything looks good.  I’m in the pink. On the way out the door, I got a couple [...]

Halloween XXVII

Is there any such thing anymore as a Republican deemed unworthy of opining on the news of the day?  Is there any conduct so aberrant, lie so flagrant, hypocrisy so astounding, nor unbroken record of utter failure enough to get these blowhards off the TV and Op/Ed pages once and for all? No, Virginia, there [...]

MTP Disgraces Itself Once Again this Morning Just for Ratings

Since David Gregory took over MTP his ratings have gone down to the point that two weeks ago the unheard of happened and ABC’s This Week won the ratings battle. So MTP is searching for ways to win the week to week battle which they won last week. In their promo for this morning’s show [...]

If Holder investigates CIA excessive torture, will it lead to more investigation?

(Just after posting this I learned that Digby substituting today for Glenn Greenwald has written about this same issue. She is looking at, “The bad apple approach doesn’t solve the political, legal or moral problems. Indeed, that seems so clear that you have to wonder if this isn’t being done to serve some other purpose.” [...]

What does America OWE the PON?

The future for the Party of No (PON) and Own Worst Enemy (OWE) was projected by The Heel on Hag’s GOP thoughts Friday when he (oops, could be a she or a variation) The Heel posted, “My gut feeling is that the left is lulling itself into this complacent notion of certainty about the GOPs [...]

Three Teens Attacked Me

While I was manning our Dem booth at the County Fair yesterday, I was approached by three white teens about 12-15 years old. They immediately started attacking me with Repug mantra charges about Obama, we had a life-sized poster for pictures image of him in our booth, health care and taxes. They also were praising [...]
