Dick Cheney, War Crimes Against Humanity

Enough Is Enough lenn Beck makes a lot of money hanging just a little too close to crazy. I never thought the day would come when we shared any common ground, but on his show this week he delivered a rant, “Enough Is Enough.” I totally agree with the following: From the beginning, most people on the left were against… Continue reading

Compare & Contrast!

You know, my father and grandfather (his father) were, much like those generations in general, really good men. Both were very generous with what little they had. They were both kind, compassionate men that had a habit of being quietly helpful. They believed that people, especially family, were more important than things. Unlike me, I can’t recall ever hearing my… Continue reading

Bravo Senator Ron Wyden! (D – Oregon)

Every American has the right to know when their government believes that it is allowed to kill them.” — Senator Wyden in the confirmation hearings for potential CIA director, John Brennan I know I frequently take the cautious stance, but we need a serious public discussion about the use of drones and oversight of the use of drones, both domestic… Continue reading

Lovin’ Me Some Chick-fil-A

Yes, I’m from the southeast. I love fried foods. I love chicken. I vividly remember my first Chick-fil-A sandwich. I was just a kid. Yummmmm! That thing was divine! And for years, in the not-too-distant past, my weekday routine included a Chick-fil-A biscuit for breakfast while driving to work. Just perfection. Ironically, most of the Chick-fil-A restaurants are located in… Continue reading

Never, EVER, Again

The nation simply wouldn’t survive another incompetent, arrogant, ignorant, extremist in the White House. As hard as it is to imagine, I think Rick Perry is an amplified version of everything I find horrifying and detestable in George W. Bush! Ten years ago, this is what the buffoon had to say: CRAWFORD, Tex., Aug. 24 — President Bush said today… Continue reading

You Go, Jon Stewart!!

Jon Stewart is smart and funny.  I love how he refers to Glenn Beck as his kid’s college fund.  Well, if Palin (Will she ever go away!  Who keeps paying for us to see her, anyway?!) and Beck can have a rally, so can sane people. The Rally to Restore Sanity, being held by Jon Stewart, is slated for 10-30-10… Continue reading

Boycott

When the Exxon Valdez spewed 10.8 million gallons of crude oil in Alaska in 1989, I was horrified. I was so angered by not only that companies irresponsible destruction of habitat and commerce, but their callus and irresponsible lack of sufficient and meaningful effort to redress the horrible wrong they had perpetrated on our planet, people, and wildlife. I don’t… Continue reading

America’s Chernobyl

  “I don’t think I’m overstating the case by saying this is America’s Chernobyl.” —Louie Miller, Mississippi state director, Sierra Club, at a news conference on May 1, 2010, in Gulfport, Mississippi. Not overstating it?  Indeed! But, unless you live on the Gulf Coast, as does my extended family, unless you know people who will lose everything because their livelihood.… Continue reading

How Bad Is the Economy?

I usually hate chain emails that are supposed to be funny but aren’t. But every once in a while one comes along that is hysterical. Here is one: You know the economy is bad when: I ordered a burger at McDonald’s and the kid behind the counter asked, “Can you afford fries with that?” If the bank returns your check… Continue reading
