  • The Dog Daze of a Presidency

    President Obama apparently strayed off-prompter briefly Monday. This somewhat whiny reference seems like something that would come from a politician exhausted by marathon campaigning and beaten down by the opposition, which is odd for someone whose party is still in control of Washington and who spent the better part of the summer on vacation: Obama was in Milwaukee to speak at the Milwaukee Laborfest, attended by Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood and AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. He used the speech to promote his $50 billion infrastructure plan and to criticize Republicans ahead of crucial midterm elections. “Some...
  • Kentucky Coal Miners Strike Back at Ashley Judd [classic smackdown of PDS sufferer Judd]

    Last month, in a speech to the National Press Club, actress Ashley Judd took a break from taking on Sarah Palin and set her sights on business practices in her home state. Judd referred to the mountain top removal of coal in Kentucky as “environmental genocide,” called the process “the state-sanctioned, federal government supported, coal industry operated, rape of Appalachia,” and said the miners should be retrained to take “better jobs” (unfortunately the “vacuous actor” career field is full up at the moment). On Wednesday, the coal industry sponsored a golf tournament at StoneCrest Golf Course in Prestonsburg, Kentucky, and...

    As of this moment, we're still unsure of all the facts in the Duke "rape" case, but it's looking like the accused players could be getting railroaded to the point where, when this is over, District Attorney Mike Nifong might receive a lucrative job offer from Union Pacific. The prosecution's "evidence" seems to be adding up about as logically as the answers on Paris Hilton's algebra exam, yet the case is still being pursued. Every time we look at somebody who may be falsely accused and wrongly convicted, we should shudder and think, "There but for the grace of God,"...

    It almost defies words. What is it that drives celebrities to the brink of hysteria over the execution death of a quadruple murderer and the founder of a mass-murdering street gang? What can you say about people hell-bent on sparing the life of a man convicted of the 1979 murders of a convenience-store clerk and two motel owners and their daughter during separate robberies – and then bragging about the killings? Why does one even need to point out the hypocrisy and immorality of holding up this kind of human scum as a role model and hero, while not lifting...
  • Communism and human nature (Bolshie Mod sez, Arise ye kittens of the earth!)

    04/05/2005 10:50:57 AM PDT · by Sammy sam · 153 replies · 8,234+ views
    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

The United States stated two weeks ago that it intended to maintain control over the computers that serve as the Internet's principal traffic cops. In a report released Thursday, the U.N. panel outlined four possible options for the future of Internet governance for world leaders to consider at a November "Information...

    A couple of years ago, Robert H. Brooks, chairman of the Hooters of America restaurant chain, purchased the Winston-Salem-based Pace Airlines. A new airline – named "Hooters Air" – was born, despite pleas from around the world for more creative names for the company, such as "United Areolalines," "Northchest," or "Pan Mamm." Now, Hooters Air has announced that they are expanding their service to new markets. We've all heard that "sex sells," and now it's a traveling salesman. Will Hooters Air experience continued growth? According to the company's website, Hooters Air, the only airline on which you pray for heavy...

    Every time I start to sort of like Bill Maher again, he says something so completely silly that I'm deprived of the ability to pay attention to him for at least another year. Maher recently told MSNBC's Joe Scarborough, "When you look at beliefs in such things as, do you go to heaven, is there a devil, we [Americans] have more in common with Turkey and Iran and Syria than we do with European nations and Canada and nations that, yes, I would consider more enlightened than us." Maher also expressed his belief that Christians suffer a neurological disorder, a...

    The level of dislike some white liberals have for minorities is absolutely amazing. I should be more specific – minorities who are smarter than they are, and on a different side of the political aisle. My apologies if the redundancies continue to accumulate. Since Dr. Condoleezza Rice was nominated to be secretary of state, the vile racism of those who have made their living telling minorities how much they love them, has been nothing short of amazing. One white radio host called Rice an "Aunt Jemima," and Colin Powell an "Uncle Tom." There have been several cartoons – by white...

Nelson is up in 2006...and facing a hard race from popular GOP Gov Mike Johanns. Nelson is among the most conservative of Senate Dems..Does this make sense, because Nelson votes with the GOP on most of the key issues..?

    WASHINGTON - Democratic Party leaders said Wednesday they want to know why Sen. John Kerry (news - web sites) ended his presidential campaign with more than $15 million in the bank, money that could have helped Democratic candidates across the country. Some said he will be pressured to give the money to Democratic campaign committees rather than save it for a potential White House bid in 2008. "Democrats are questioning why he sat on so much money that could have helped him defeat George Bush (news - web sites) or helped down-ballot races, many of which could have gone our...

    Reprinted from Sunday, Nov. 14, 2004 5:45 p.m. ESTClinton 'Elvis' Library to Include Monica As Bill Clinton's library is unveiled at a gala opening this week, one thing is certain: His messy legacy will be on full display. One alcove will be dedicated to impeachment, and organizers have promised not to sidestep even Monica Lewinsky or Paula Jones. The 58-year-old political superstar is expected to draw hundreds of thousands of visitors a year to his library. "Bill Clinton is a rock star," said Skip Rutherford, head of Clinton's nonprofit foundation that built the $165 million library. "He is Elvis."...

    (The) "nuclear option," (is) a parliamentary maneuver to effectively change Senate rules so that only a simple majority is needed to end a filibuster of a judicial nominee. Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., said he has not decided whether he would invoke that option next year. Robert F. Bennett, R-Utah, the chief deputy majority whip, said such a move would occur only if Democrats filibuster a Supreme Court nomination. It's the last paragraph in the source link.

    As if psychologists didn't have enough avenues from which to reap fortunes off our loopiness and occasional gullibility, along comes a new malady found exclusively among Kerry supporters, called "Post Election Selection Trauma," or PEST – which is sort of like shell shock for soldiers of Democrat misfortune. A cure is nowhere in sight because it would appear the Democrats are perfectly happy to treat the disease with more of the disease. According to the Boca Raton News, one psychologist has treated 15 friends and family with "intense hypnotherapy." After hypnosis, the patients will demand a recount whenever they see...

    The Canadian Immigration Ministry is saying that Internet traffic from the United States shot up to six times normal the day after George W. Bush was elected president, and visits to the site are still far higher than normal. The increase in site traffic is perhaps partly due to disenchanted liberals seeking icy respite from a president they can't stand. Could we get so lucky? Doubtful. There's a good chance that a high percentage of the increase was contributed to by Republicans logging on, like sufferers of scorching migraines in search of aspirin, in hopes that the Ministry posted a...
