Flag of Israel

Israel, most vile and evil of all nations, has attacked a peaceful convoy of ships attempting to bring pro-Palestinian activists and much needed supplies to Hamas controlled Gaza, according to the New York Times.

The Sestak Affair

Everyone is talking about Joe Sestak, the congressman from Pennsylvania currently running for a seat in the US Senate. In February, Sestak claimed the White House offered him some sort of federal appointment or job in exchange for not running, which would be a felony under federal law, which stipulates that one can’t offer something … Continue reading

The Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy

Don’t tell anybody, but I’ve been working undercover as a “converted conservative” to expose the hidden agenda perpetrated on the American people by right-wing nutters who are slowly but surely taking over the political and social dialogue in this country. And what I’ve uncovered is truly, truly shocking! As you may be aware, Hillary Clinton … Continue reading

Starbucks Open Carry Policy – A Local’s Perspective

Bill of Rights

In January, 2010, gun advocates in California decided to test their state’s open carry laws by walking into businesses with guns strapped to their legs, or wherever they strapped them.

Kaaba at Night

Another popular item in the news these days is the Ground Zero Mosque. Certainly, you’ve heard about it. You haven’t? Then you’ve been living under a rock for the past several months, or just avoid the news like the plague. Let me bring you up to speed.

Why You DON’T Mess With Adam Baldwin

If you’re a Joss Whedon fan, like I am, you may not have run across Adam Baldwin until Season 5 of Angel, where he played the scary (and well dressed) conduit to the Senior Partners, Marcus Hamilton. Then, also like me, you were doubly delighted when Baldwin turned up again in Firefly, playing to perfection … Continue reading

Obama To Skip Memorial Day At Arlington – Why It Matters

Graves At Arlington on Memorial Day

By now, you’ve undoubtedly read that our “beloved” President, Barack Hussein “I Hate America” Obama, will be taking a pass this coming Memorial Day Weekend.
