Old news by now but I wasn’t blogging when this appeared and since I wrote on it earlier, thought it worth revisiting. In case you missed it, GM recently reported profits of $4.7bn on new vehicle sales.  As if that … Continue reading

Let NPR Support Itself

Okay, enough is enough.  Today right wing blow-holes like Eric Cantor are bloviating about how their felonious ambush faux journalist James O’Keefe brought down another so-called bastion of the liberal media, PBS as Vivian Schiller, former President and CEO of … Continue reading

What’s on hand is a mass of humanity that an insipid a sector of our country feels haven’t earned the right to be here. We also have a growing cesspool of petrol and dispersants threatening life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness in the Gulf and beyond. Consider them resources. Continue reading

Nature’s Way of Telling Us (We’re Assholes)

One of my all-time favorites of the period was Spirit, a west-coast band of formidable talent and creativity. Spirit had a decent following, but never matched the financial success of many contemporaries, despite writing some of the decades’ most memorable songs. Today, as I watched the oozing crude billow menacingly in the Gulf Coast, I recalled an old saw by Spirit that’s no less pertinent today than the year it was released. Continue reading

EARTH TO DEMS: Reconciliation NOW!

Shame on the democrats for allowing it to occur. They’ve effectively blown their advantage by not being total pricks with the republicans, who have rewarded their attempts at partisanship with vitriol, guerilla warfare repeated party line votes. Continue reading

Has HOPE “Jumped the Shark?”

“Hope” felt good. Unfortunately, as it became a rallying cry and slogan, it also became a marketing tool. Advertisers, marketers were quick to notice that the concept of hope could be reduced to a branding tool…something useful to sell product…a stamp that helps turn ordinary items into something special.

Steele to Ried: “Step Down”

I don’t contend that I approve of Reid’s comments. I do know that his record shows no sign of racism. If a prominent African American has made them, I doubt that there’d be much said about it. Continue reading
