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

Some New Concepts

Do you know that feeling when you hear or read something that just offends something about your sense of fair play, but you don’t take the time to tease out the details? You just know in your gut something is wrong. Fred Clark‘s recent post*, well, yesterday’s, put a tidy label on some concepts that I’ve had a difficult time… Continue reading

We Are All Cyborgs Now

TED has always provided an alternate view of the reflection the United States sees in the mirror when watching main stream media. Instead of the constant lunatic, doomsday rantings of a Glenn Beck*, the police blotter that CNN has become, the McNews of USAToday, and the general anesthetic quality of most TV programs, the smart and insightful people who present… Continue reading

Scrub-a-dub-dub

So, it’s finally happened.  The irresponsible, the calculated, the inexcusable rhetoric of extremists in politics and so-called journalism has reached the tipping point and created an incident of domestic terrorism.  Now Sarah Palin, whose name I had sworn I would never print on this blog again, is busy “scrubbing” her blog of these images and her hit list. I doubt… 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

Sincerely Sad

These folks don’t seem to understand what’s gone wrong in America. They just know something has gone really wrong. They are trying to make sense of it. I suspect that we all are. I guess Glenn Beck offers some bizarre and simplistic way for them to vent that frustration and to have hope that things will get better if they… Continue reading

I Hadn’t Really Thought about This

Because, in their view, integration was forced down their unwilling throats by judicial and legislative fiat. The lunatic fringe conservatism that Mr. Beck espouses with such goofy eloquence is driven, among other… Continue reading

Too Hysterical!

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) – With the establishment of government-mandated death panels just days away, grandmothers began fleeing the United States in record numbers today, reports Fox News. “I am never one to yell ‘Fire’ in a crowded theater,” said Fox News host Glenn Beck. “But run for your lives!” Across the country, slow-moving caravans of 1980s-era Cadillacs with turn… Continue reading
