Political discourse.

As New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen accused former Sen. Scott Brown of “fear-mongering” on Ebola, Democrats strongly agreed, Republicans completely disagreed, and independent voters stayed neutral. Interesting question.  Scott Brown rode his pick-up truck into a Senate seat in Massachusetts, now trying to take

Scottish Independence Bid failed. 1980.  Reagan versus Carter and Extraterrestrials. The Midterm Election problem for Democrats and Republicans. Bobby Jindal versus Ebola. Sarah Palin Brawling thingy… because it’s, like 2008 again, when we cared about Palin. Elizabeth Warren exploring a White House run? UNCR

So.  Nikki Mattson. Apparently still running.  Board of Regents.  University of Michigan.  Under the Natural Law Party. One of six candidates. Since the stats page show interest, I’ll be sure to try to profile them all before November… or… somewhat.

A lecture on video game culture was canceled at Utah State University this week after the school received threats of a mass shooting. Controversy that started online has now moved to the real world, reports CBS News correspondent Jericka Duncan. “Women are often a damsel in distress or helpless in some way, or they

By most accounts, the Democratic Party is going to get some kind of thumping the first Tuesday of November, and lose the Senate. … because, … erm… Ebola Sealed it. Which is why it is weird that some weird race popped out of nowhere in South Dakota.  All good and well, and it is clever [...]

Moving through the Oregon Voters Pamphlet… The Constitution Party candidate for Governor, Alan Auer, make the point that… We are all created in the Creator’s image; therefore, the unalienable rights of the unborn is the first duty of civil government. Human life is sacred. Male and female created He them.

   The cover should be funny, as it is clearly an allusion to … er… this…   The comic book series where Archie gang the gang face the Zombie Apocalypse, as headed by none other than Zombie Jughead. The first case of a comic book released by Archie Comics that would not pass the dictates [...]

Alexander and the Very Good No Bad Very Bad Day… … doesn’t seem like it would work expanded to 80 minutes.  I suppose they’ve fleshed out a trope of a family of “lucky” people for the no-luck Alexander to clash in, but… … my 3rd grade teacher read this book relentlessly to us

“I saw Joseph Biden.” “Joseph Biden?” “Joseph Biden.” Apparently, he did.  Eating ice cream.  To, you know, have to choke back that type of “gaffe” where he accidentally says something truthful but inconvenient.  … Blah blah blah… Did you hear that one about Sau

It’s always amusing to see foreign press on American elections.  Here’s what’s at stake for the midterms… Obama’s Legacy… the Alaskan Pipeline.  And… anything else matter? No.  It’s goddamned Canada.  Who cares if the tax code shifts here or there? I like the “Less t

On the 50th anniversary of the “Free Speech Movement”, when Mario Savio jumped onto the car and… … hm… ignited Ronald Reagan’s bid for the California governorship by poo-pooing the “Filthy Speech Movement”. Ah, the contradictions of the 1960s.  It was either very political or

In early first term dark musings about how the President would be “conveniently assassinated” if he stepped out of line… Security Breaches with right wing Security Detail stepping aside. Yeah, well.  The problem is I’m hard pressed to know what Obama is doing that’s terribly Kennedy-esque.

Simpsons.  Family Guy.  Team Up. The Simpsons Jumps the Shark.  Again.  Then again, when a Fox cable network showed a marathon of all the Simpsons episodes with Memorial weekend, lists came out from different media sources of key episodes and when they were on.  The lists pretty well stop half way through the run. When

  Wait. Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu’s leading Republican opponent says she shouldn’t have helped a Louisiana State University football fan drink upside-down from a beer keg at a recent tailgate party. Republican Senate candidate Bill Cassidy said people shouldn’t applaud the widely circulated photo

I was wondering what the “Don’t make the illegal trek northward” jingle that the government is promoting below the border would sound like.  Now I know. Launched by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) as part of the multi-million dollar ”Dangers Awareness Campaign,” the agency arranged f

Interesting argument being made for Kansas Democrats, who have dropped their nominee to back the Independent.  The Republicans say they need a replacement. Kobach argued Thursday that state law required Democrats to provide a new candidate. He gave them a week to come up with a replacement and suggested the ballots might b

Trying to gauge the exciting Mississippi race pitting Thad Cochran — the surreal favorite of black Democrats — Travis Childers, trying to woo white Republicans… and the ghost of Chris McDaniels, who… is arguing some precedent that I can’t make heads or tails of to reopen his case. In a legal br

What happened to the last Caliphate. Fascism in the Ukraine. Woodrow Wilson and Jesus Ben Carson on why Evolution is a myth. Teachout embarrasses Cuomo. Boston and Militarized Police. Worth posting just for the photo art. Clever Net Neutrality campaign. So… Mencken.

“What is the deal with –” Wait.  Is this an old Seinfeld monolouge?  Ah, observational stand up cliches.  Yay! “Lyndon Larouche?” No. “Cool Guy … or a Real Douche?” No one is going to say “Cool Guy”. I have a family member that’s part of his organization.

Interesting idea from the Democratic Party on how they can solve the problem of the low rating held by the Democratic Party while capitalizing on the low rating held by the Republican Party. Run with the Independent. They’re doing this in the Kansas Senate race and the Alaska Governor race. I theorize that the frivolo

We see the Oregonian is on the “War on Marijuana Legalization” kick.  It’s editorial position is made crystal clear in its headlines. I note I’m a little weary.  In a vacuum, I’d probably be opposed to this measure — wait for either a better legalization measure to pop up or decriminali

Biff!  Pow!  Zoom!  Comics Aren’t Just for Kids Anymore is, naturally, the classic comic book oriented title of the post 80s era.  Covering superheroes such as Watchmen and arty comics such as Raw.

They gave me a ripped dollar bill back for change.  It’s about 60 percent of a dollar bill.  Didn’t notice it until an hour or so later. Other than that, things went well. Do I hand it over to someone when I need to spend 60 cents?

So it is… Connie Johnson… 50,180 … 57 percent Jim Rogers … 37,935 … 43 percent 93 percent of the vote tallied. What does this signify?  More or less than this… In Vermont, less than a quarter of registered voters were expected to turn out Tuesday, but the colorful races included a Democr

The strange complications of Alex Jones and the Prison Planet / Infowars matrix is in bloom with Ferguson.  Because on one hand, it does the narrative of the emerging police state and taking away of rights.  On the other hand, it comes up against the attack on New World Order dominated “political correctness”.

Sign of the emerging (probably should have ceased using the word “emerging” a few years’ back) new Cold Cold War with Russia.  It figures that it comes from the great symbol on the End of the Cold War.

From Reason magazine, Krist Novoselic asked about gun ownership. reason: One of the odd things about rock stars is that oftentimes they’re great capitalists but they’re also explicitly anti-capitalism.

Random sighting of liberal bloggings… the governor of Missouri… out of the running for vice presidency due to recent ugliness and etc. I think the Republicans, due to Hillary Clinton’s inevitability on the Democratic side — which I note is not any thought I had back when she was deemed so in 2008 , a
