Dr. West changes opinion of President Obama

Disregard most of the comments in reaction to this clip. I doubt that many of the posters have read Dr. West or know much of his work. Suffice to say that Cornel West is worth listening to…and as usual, I … Continue reading

GM: Back in Black After Bankrputcy

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

The Final Lap? Health Care Bill Looks Certain to Pass

AP:  Although I don’t mean to jinx it, despite rigorous, mean-spirited, bellicose battling between every sector of the right-wing and the  the Obama administration, indications are that the current health care bill seems to be in the bag.  This week, … 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.

Town Crier Beck is the ULTIMATE Liar

I’m fully convinced that Glen Beck is a walking, talking, hemorrhoid anus; a loose sphincter bleeding hate, to whom lying is as natural as respiration. “Round Mouth” Beck is a self-promoting, ego maniacal charlatan peddling resentment, fomenting division and in my opinion, he won’t be be able to feel any real, human emotion until he motivates someone to kill. Then, he’ll experience elation. Then and only then will Beck become fully erect. Continue reading

Apologies? We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Apologies

The phrase “Nattering Naybobs of Negativism” is but one of many reasons I’m glad Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) appeared on Blind Woof Blintzen’s uh, “Situation Room” in the face of cacophonous criticism from the GOP. Continue reading

GOP Health Care Plan: “Don’t Get Sick”

Roy Blunt promised a plan but the GOP never generated one. What the GOP delivered is anything but comprehensive. It’s a mongrel made up of sundry components, the best of which could strengthen a plan but in no way can stand by itself as one. Continue reading

One Day in Denmark

Everyone from “No Big Deal” Steele, to Ohio’s Big Boner, from Fox’s Morning Fiends to its nightly liars line-up indicted our president for his short trip, which if pressed, even I can criticize for but different reasons. Even so, Obama’s sojourn pales in comparison with that of their beloved Curious George. Continue reading
