Blistering Interview. I hope He's Wrong

Today religious mania has infected the political bloodstream and America has become corrosively isolationist, he says. “Ask an American what they know about Sweden and they’d say ‘They live well but they’re all alcoholics’. In fact a Scandinavian system could have benefited us many times over.” Instead, America has “no intellectual class” and is “rotting away at a funereal pace.… Continue reading

A Fascinating Interview

Frequently Jon Stewart just rails against the lunacy.  But this interview with Republican Ron Paul is intriguing.  Regrettably Jon interrupted him a couple of times and didn’t let him get into any real substance of his thinking.

But, we may be breaking up. At least, we’re separating for… Continue reading

Ahhh! To the Socialists and Communists Belong the Spoils…

Silly capitalists! Looks like those pesky, truly leftist governments will clean the Right’s clock. I mean, the economies of the socialist nations of Europe, our friends to our north, and communist China long ago recovered from the financial debacle we capitalists caused. Let’s just go ahead and nuke ’em now! Whuduhyah say! Hmmm??? The United States would be mistaken to… Continue reading

Great News!

Great. So I’ll get to live longer to suffer the buffoonery of Dubyuh! I’m elated. New findings show that the Great Depression was actually good for U.S. health. Annual death rates declined during years of downturn and increased in years of expansion. The findings could offer a silver lining to today’s financial crisis. The results reinforce earlier research showing recessions… Continue reading
