    A great cloud of melancholy has settled over Facebook land, or at least over those regions I inhabit. The coming ascension of Donald Trump has deeply darkened the usual year-end winter blues. But you can also feel a kind of strange euphoria in progressive enclaves like the Bay Area — the growing fierceness of soldiers eager for battle.
  • Big Bible vs. Big Business (Pro-Homosexual, anti-Conservative screed)

    The battles in Arkansas and Indiana over two bogus “religious freedom” bills, that were thinly disguised vehicles for anti-LGBT discrimination, exposed a major rift within the Republican Party. It came down to Big Bible vs. Big Business – and the concerns of social conservatives were swiftly dropped like a bad stock. (* “Big Bible” does not mean ALL Christians. Just the intolerant ones who reject separation of church and state and have shamelessly built a lucrative industry distorting the Bible to justify discrimination) With major corporations like Wal-Mart and Apple loudly condemning these bills, Republican lawmakers quickly retreated. Amended bills...

    Governor Scott Walker, of Wisconsin unveiled his plans to salvage the economy and budget of Wisconsin. His plan calls for sweeping legislation that will weaken public employee rights and bargaining ability. State officials alerted the Wisconsin State Employee unions that expired collective bargaining contracts will be terminated on March 13. A budget repair bill also unveiled will do away with all collective bargaining rights for nearly all public employees and make it much easier to fire employees. Naturally, the unions and Democrats see this as an attack on unionism that is tantamount to the attack on Perl Harbor. The...
  • Why Does Conservative Politics Find Gay Marriage So Deeply Threatening? (Barf Alert)

    "Just as most older conservatives now acknowledge that they once erred in "keeping blacks in their place," they should make the same acknowledgement for gays and their right to marry, and live happy, open and contented lives in each other's arms." "Fear that others may reject these apparently arbitrary moral boundaries, and hence question those who decreed them, and cause society to fall apart, is the reason for the conservatives' deep paranoia about the mythical "gay recruiting" and the equally mythical "gay agenda.""

    The man appointed by Pennsylvania Governor Edward G. Rendell to oversee the security and fairness of Pennsylvania elections has been discovered to be an ally of ACORN. Rendell, a Democrat, is a leading Obama supporter. On March 31, 2005, Secretary of the Commonwealth Pedro Cortés heaped praise on the controversial left-wing activist group that is now being investigated for voter fraud in a dozen states, including Pennsylvania. Said Cortés, directly addressing ACORN representatives at a meeting of the Pennsylvania Reform Task Force: "And thank you kindly on behalf of the Department and on behalf of the Administration for all of...

    Arguably, the greatest Liberal power-grab in 20th century America was the passage of the 17th Amendment to the US Constitution. Until its ratification in 1913, US Senators were elected by state electors, usually persons serving in that state’s legislature. The rationale for the elector system originated at the time the Constitution was created in the 1780s and was the same as for a College of Electors for President and Vice-president: to protect the smaller political entities (for President, the individual states, and for Senators, a state’s disparate counties) from being steam-rolled by one geographically small area with a large voter...

    Insurgents in Iraq are right to try to force US troops out of the country, a former British army commander has said. Gen Sir Michael Rose also told the BBC's Newsnight programme that the US and the UK must "admit defeat" and stop fighting "a hopeless war" in Iraq.

    CARACAS, Venezuela (Reuters) - Thousands of supporters of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez marched in Caracas on Saturday to support the leftist leader in his dispute with Mexico's president over U.S. free trade proposals. State workers, unionists and students, many wearing red T-shirts, waved flags and anti-U.S. placards as they marched through the capital accompanied by trucks blaring revolutionary songs, Venezuelan folk ballads and Mexican mariachi music. Venezuela and Mexico withdrew their ambassadors on Monday after Chavez called his Mexican counterpart, Vicente Fox, a "lap dog" of U.S. imperialism for his close ties to Washington and told him, "Don't mess with...

    Jordanian terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi has purportedly declared a "bitter war" on Iraq's parliamentary elections in an audio tape posted on the Internet. The tape urged Sunni Muslims to fight against the vote next Sunday, which the speaker said was a plot against them by Washington and its "infidel" Shi'ite Muslim allies. "We have declared a bitter war against the principle of democracy and all those who seek to enact it," the speaker, who was identified as Zarqawi, said. "Candidates in elections are seeking to become demi-gods while those who vote for them are infidels. And with God as my...

    WASHINGTON -- President Bush's re-election was viewed negatively by a majority of people in several European countries -- including those in Britain, America's strongest ally in the war in Iraq, Associated Press polling found. The president was not the only one viewed unfavorably. Americans generally were seen in an unfavorable light by many in France, Germany and Spain, countries not supportive of U.S. Iraq policies. [snip] As reflected by his re-election, a majority in the United States viewed Bush favorably. Just over half in this country said they were hopeful and were not disappointed after Bush's re-election. At least seven...

    Doctors at the Austrian clinic that treated Ukraine’s opposition leader confirm there was a plot to kill him MEDICAL experts have confirmed that Viktor Yushchenko, Ukraine’s opposition leader, was poisoned in an attempt on his life during election campaigning, the doctor who supervised his treatment at an Austrian clinic said yesterday. Doctors at Vienna’s exclusive Rudolfinerhaus clinic are within days of identifying the substance that left Mr Yushchenko’s face disfigured with cysts and lesions, Nikolai Korpan told The Times in a telephone interview. Specialists in Britain, the United States and France had helped to establish that it was a biological...

    In this edition of the DUmmie FUnnies the DUmmies can’t figure out why people aren’t rioting in the streets over vote fraud. Uhh….Maybe it might have to do with total lack of evidence of vote fraud. However, that minor technicality doesn’t stop the DUmmies from hoping for the coming Revolution as you can see in this THREAD titled, “When and how does the Revolution start?” As usual, the DUmmie yearnings for a Revolution are in Bolshevik Red while the comments of humble counter-revolutionary correspondent are in the [brackets]: When and how does the Revolution start? I'm going for a bike...

    Millions of human beings around the world are forcibly detained, their liberties removed by governmental authorities. Anyone who takes seriously the immediate potential for replacing capitalism with a world of real abundance and freedom knows already that the great majority of crimes are either crimes against property or involve the illegal trafficking of property — or are the likely direct result of living the restricted and stressful life of a wage-slave. While there are those who justify the existence of laws on moral and ideological grounds, the defenders of the status-quo must always argue their case referring to a swashbuckler’s...

The idea is to convert these support constituencies into pressure points until the company yields on some issue. One of the most common uses of corporate campaigns by organized...

    NEW YORK - Conspiracy theories blaming Jews and Israel for the disintegration of NASA space shuttle Columbia last month are circulating the Internet at an alarming rate, the Anti-Defamation League said Wednesday. The online hate speech, tracked by the ADL on Web sites, chat rooms, bulletin boards and e-mails, includes allegations the US and Israel destroyed the Columbia to divert attention from the Iraq conflict, that Israeli astronaut Ilan Ramon was a spy, and that Jews and Israelis were complicit in the shuttle's downing in order to gain sympathy for Israel. "Even in times of tragedy for the American people,...
