The Price of Freedom

I recently read a righty editorial that suggested the notion that the massacre at Sandy Hook was the "price of freedom" -- that the right of all American adults to own firearms is inherently going to make such massacres possible, even regular. And you know what? I totally get that…

Everybody Knows

I'm listening to The Evens here while studying bacteria, and the song "Everybody Knows" just wrapped up. It occurred to me that I should have rigged up some loudspeakers to the roof of my car and rolled around town blasting this song at maximum volume on Inauguration Day. I doubt…

Words Fail Me

Oh my god, he did it! Barack defeated the idiots, the racists, the conservatives. He did it, he fucking did it! Colorado is a blue state, the United States has a new President-elect and a Democratic Senate majority. Now hey, I was 24 when Clinton was elected, ending twelve years…

Vote

I voted this morning, on my way to work. Paper ballot, hope it gets counted. Got the butterflies going, but I'm pretty hopeful--more hopeful than in '04--that we will right the ship this time around. Can't wait to see if Colorado goes blue here! …

Vote

I know I haven't had much to say on the election this year. Maybe because I said so much about it in 2004. Luckily my friend sent me this video today, which has spurred me to at least share it with you all. See you on Tuesday. …

Patriot

Webster's defines a patriot as "one who loves his or her country and supports its authority and interests". But with a country this divided, the term almost has no validity anymore. I mean, our country's "authority and interests" are presently defined by the Bush administration. Therefore, our country's so-called authority…

My New Anthem

My preferred candidates are already out of the race or are still languishing under the boot of Big Media so no one even knows who they are (Dodd's out? Dodd who?). I find myself wanting to comment on the race, and then again I like my blood pressure where it's…

The Honorable Sam "Ace" Rothstein

Much as I'm enjoying watching Alberto Gonzales go down in flames, the rabid scenes in the Senate last week were quite tiresome. Seriously; Nancy Pelosi with foam dribbling from her jowls is incredibly unappetizing. All these donation-collecting suit monkeys crawling around Washington are the same: they only show some stones…

Hey Stupid, Read This (Part Deux)

Well, shit. This is even better. God damn, when it's presented like this you just want to cry. Hey Bush supporters: read this please, and then look in the mirror and ask yourself what in the fuck you are thinking. If some passage from the bible is your first thought…

Hey Stupid, Read This.

Well said; I wish more people read this site. Please read this: A great article on the disgusting hypocrisy of this piece of shit that this idiotic nation RE-elected to play president of the US, and the sad, sad mindless "faith" of the idiotic masses that form this asshole's voter…

Lobby Reform

Whoa, I've never seen Molly Ivins so pissed off before! Read her latest op-ed piece about the so-called lobby reform bill, and then start yelling at your congresscritters... I'm sorry these creeps in Congress have so little sense of what they're supposed to be about that they think it's fine…

War Song

According to my friend Paul in this post, he was obligated to post an anti-war song on his blog, and having read that I'm obligated to do the same. So: Let Them Eat War by: Bad Religion There's a prophet on a mountain and he's making up dinner With long…

SOTU=SNAFU

Yeah, so I missed most of the State of the Union, forgetting about the time zone change (yeah, it STILL happens to me). But from the look of things, it was big business as usual so who gives a shit anyway. What's been fun, in a staggeringly depressing way, is…

You Got That Right

Right on, Sky News, Right on. …

Lost

This country is lost. The way I see it, when thousands of people die and the reaction is for thousands more to begin looting and shooting at the helicopters trying to rescue them with their ten pairs of Nikes -- while rich people argue the details of supply and demand…
