Political discourse.

WW1 Anniversary coming up... Parsing the number “74″ in terms of “school shootings”… not quite.  But it’ll be hard to pester that into any conversation.  If you can figure out whether it matters or not. Teletubbies coming back Mars is for Introverts. What did Hillary Know?  Anything?

There was a man walking around, at a spot near some prominent gay clubs… a spot that is going to be tacked off for “Gay Pride” events this weekend… He was holding a sign saying “I Am An Ex-Gay”. To which I can only think, “Yeah, good luck with that one.”

The one curious item in the race where David Brat defeated Eric Cantor… No doubt hoping that conservative voters would bail on Brat’s candidacy, Cantor labeled him a “liberal college professor,” which FactCheck determined was inaccurate. The site asked conservative economist Richard Rahn for his asse

Okay, so there’s talk of Elizabeth Warren getting drafted for a Presidential run… even though she pretty well categorically nixes the idea.  The Progressive magazine has a pretty horribly written article where the author begins with a premise that there’s some lull in young women activists’ enthusia

Looking over the results of the Mississippi Senate Primary between “Establishment” Republican Incumbent Thad Cochran and “Tea Party” “Insurgent” radio shock jock figure Christopher McDaniel… McDaniel … 49.46% Cochran … 49.02% Thomas Carey … 1.53% And who the heck i

I was reminded of this bit from an old review of a New York Times Review of a musical stage play adaptation of the movie “Heathers“… This means — and how strange is this? — that “Heathers: The Musical” is nostalgic for a more innocent time, when a plot about killing off high school royalty [...]

Middle school teacher tries to teach kids about our history of blackface, gets suspended. Some attempt at relating the latest mass killer to one’s own experiences of late adolescence and … hm… “I guess?”.  (This is always a tricky gambit.)  (I like the first comment from a woman rolling their

Some interesting government censor stories… Item… Government Agency in Turkey tries to block Twitter, doesn’t hold.  Everyone takes to Twitter to complain and kvetch. Finally fed up, Mr. Erdogan tried to shut Twitter down on Thursday — 10 days before important local elections — after lashing out at th

Two points to anyone who can find the most absurd or insane protest / picket staged by Westboro Baptist Church. Maybe Jethro Tull frontman Ian Anderson? Have they ever picketed an Abba Cover band? I suppose this is the absurd response that they’re getting now, as in… why bother going to the high ground?  It [..

Hm.

So… read this news story about how our government’s studying Vladimir Putin’s body language for clues on what is to be done with the Ukraine and Russia. And now… study this body language of both men and organize policy around it.  It’s John Kerry and his Russian doppleganger, Sergey Lavrov.

Most of this article about the new information coming out of documents from the Clinton Administration isn’t very revealing or interesting.  Yes, anyone who was paying attention could pretty easily reconstruct what was going on behind the scenes during the months after the 1994 midterm elections from what was going o

Just in case you’re curious on what Doc Hastings’s final fights are all about… Wind Farms versus Eagles. An environmental conundrum, I can assure you.  Harness the Wind, or let the eagle soar? Oh, and… the never ending thing about Hanford… which will be there after his successor finally decide

Leave it to Iran’s “Press TV” to find the angle on the Superbowl, which, admittedly is something I ponder when I look at the Seahawks. A 9/11 truth Super Bowl? The article is slapdash in who it labels as “9/11 Truther”.  Is Michael Moore a “9/11 Truther”?  Not to my knowledge̷

Interesting book… I guess? Former President George W. Bush said he wants his institute, which Tuesday released a book featuring experts weighing in on ways for the U.S. to jumpstart the economy toward 4 percent gross domestic product growth, to be an “action-oriented” place. “We’re very much in

From Bill Carter, the writer of two books about “late night wars” (one in the early 1990s and the other a couple years ago), in a “this and that” tv article: When Mr. Leno took over from Johnny Carson in 1992, his producer wanted Mr. Carson to hand off a microphone to Mr. Leno in [...]

My Little Pony has a male fanbase. Makes some sense.  Supposedly the GI Joe was created by a man who feared little boys were secretly playing with their sister’s Barbie Dolls.

Chris Christie is someone I can never quite pull the lever on for “Never Going to Be President”.  Oh, I can list the reasons he can’t.  And we can see the way his political virtue will prove to be a double edged sword, and what his downfall will be.  It’s always been a question of [...]

Item number one:  2014 Prediction: Lyndon Larouche will die.  This will result in a pretty massive shake-up in the organization, where the bulk will decided to carry on while disassociating themselves from the publicly disreputable figure of Lyndon Larouche.  Thus will be born the La Moose Movement.
