Repugnican Americans Make Me Puke! Conserving What?

If America is an example of how “civilized people” select their leadership, I prefer pygmies, aboriginal blues and headhunters in the Amazon, who have been smart enough to avoid our modern two-party political system.

I haven’t Totally Given Up on Obama, but as My Late...

I’m an Obama supporter, but I’m not an Obama cheerleader. While I agree that President Obama has done more for this country in the short time he’s been in office than any president since Franklin Roosevelt, presidents are not only assessed based on what they do, but also what they fail to do. So in spite of the fact that he’s saved America from a second Great Depression, his success in that area pales in comparison to what he’s failing to do - aggressively confronting America’s most insidious domestic enemy and the most serious threat to our democracy since the civil War, the current GOP.

Conservatives Attack On Public Sector Workers

Bottom Feeders: Conservative radio and talk show personalities have longed harangued the public regarding public sector employees. An object of vilification has become the lot of public employees from some sectors of our American society. Many people believe a radio personality, Rush Limbaugh is effective and accurate representative of conservatism in America. Today, February 18, 2011 between 1210 p.m. and 100 p.m., Mr. Limbaugh said words to the effect:

The Pledge of Allegiance: A Wish List at Best

Now, I realize that I sound like a wild-eyed radical, but if I do, it's only because I have a very low threshold for bullshit. I love this country, but I love truth more. I'm eclectic in my views. I believe in clear, unadulterated thought, and addressing every issue on its own merit. As a result, sometimes I agree with liberals, and at other times I agree with conservatives. That doesn't always make me very popular, but I'm more than happy to forsake popularity in return for moral and intellectual clarity. I was taught that's what it means to be an American. Maybe I'm naive, but I took that lesson seriously.

GOP Stumbles Over ‘Homeboy’ Steele – Again

This is a reprise of an earlier article, which refers to yet a previous article regarding the Republican party's troubles with the illustrious Michael Steele, the conservative Snoop Dog. Now the GOP desperately wants to find a graceful way to get rid of him, but to put it in Brother Steele's vernacular, 'We don't roll like that, Dawg' - and further, he doesn't have sense enough to resign. Why should he when he gets to 'boogie-down' on the world stage? 'This is better than being on Soul Train, my man.'

The appeal of unreality

When Al Franken ran for the Senate, people questioned his credentials, but good grief, people, comedy is hard work compared to harrumphing. It takes brains and elegance and courage to make people laugh. A comedian who joins the Senate has taken a step down on the social scale and everybody knows it.

Unmanned Drone advocates want to test-fly UAVs over Dayton airspace

Defense industry supporters of efforts to establish the Dayton, Ohio region as a national center of training, education and product development for unmanned aircraft say that persuading the U.S. government to approve airspace for flying the unmanned craft near this urban area is critical. Civilian authorities fear technology for unmanned aircraft can’t assure air safety.
