Let me get this straight.
Tea Party members pose as muslim terrorists to catch an NPR executive accepting money from muslims (they offered him five million and he refused). Instead he calls the Tea Party group racists, to their face. They were posing as muslims. It sounds like a racist thing to do to me. He nailed it, didn’t he? Then, they try to expose him for mocking them to their face. And now congress is cutting funding for NPR. Smooth. Tea Party wins.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve referred to …

The Stupidity of Nuclear Power

Itís been a while since Iíve given much in way of opinion on this site. I know times are tough, financially and environmentally, and so on.

LJ went out, then called me telling me that she was getting a new phone and said that she got a discount on a second new phone. I said that I wanted something with Bluetooth and she brought home the Nokia 6102i.

I wanted something free, that would allow me to iSync up my ical and address book. I looked and looked and I …

People on the radio are asking, “What is the best way to handle North Korea?”.
Well, I got something to say on the matter. It’s a lost cause. It was a lost cause the moment we sold nuclear technology to that psychopath-dictator in the first place.
We could have kept ourselves out of this mess by clamping down on Arms and Dangerous technology sales to rouge and communist countries.
It comes out that Rumsfeld was on the broad of directors of a company that Sold Nuclear Technology to North …

My daughter, Addie, is a very good kid. It’s a little startling sometimes how good she can be.
She recently has begun apologizing for things she didn’t say‚Ķ like, Caca (she tells me it is spelled Kaka.. and you know what? Spell check agrees with her‚Ķ huh). I believe that she thinks these words to herself (she can read to herself so this is not out of the question, and also she has claimed to have a song playing in her head) and she is trying to figure out the …

Listen up, Lame Liberal Leadership.
Democrats have no balls and need a strategy. Well, I have a strategy for you but you have to stick to it.
Your Marching Orders are as follows.
1. Environment. Start Reciting Facts. Its that simple. Need some reason why? See This Video over at Crooks and Liars.
The Christian Right have got their two Supreme Court Justices, and now they are ready to switch their focus. They want to protect God’s Green Earth, so give it to them. The White House has been …

Crooks and Liars has this video up of Scarborough (of MSNBC) claiming to be embarassed to be a Republican. It reminds me of Democrats claiming to be embarassed to be a Democrat.
