If the President you trust, your elected official handed you a silver spoon with chocolate in it, but you found out later it was actually pudding mixed with feces. What would you do? Politics are messy and so are the lies often fed to us by our officials to justify certain legislative policies regarding price gouging of; mortgages, real estate, gas, oil and even food. Food, water and air, something all humans cannot live without. The question is, does any world government, financial institution or corporation have the right to monopolize or privatize these three things essential to our survival... Read More

We've all heard of the polygamist religious sects in Utah and Texas. They claimed freedom of religion. So, one wonders how far freedom of religion should extend. If nobody gets hurt, physically or emotionally, then what's the problem? Clearly the girls in Utah and Texas were being emotionally hurt, so that should not be allowed, however if they were having multiple adult, consenting, wives, it should have been left alone. If you are a ward of the state (which is a nice way of saying you're in jail) and you are Jewish, you are entitled to Kosher meals. If you are Muslim, you are entitled to... Read More

Steve Urkel's catch phrase, "Ooop did I do that ? came to mind when I saw the big media up roar over Rev. Jesse Jackson mic flub up. The only difference that Steve Urkel was a dork and generally didn't realize he did something. Brain smart he was, but social inept he was. (Yoda has temporarily taken over my writing skills)

Rev. Jackson along with all the rest of these politicians are supposed to be educated, socially seasoned and generally know that what they say to the public, they should really mean. But wait we need to put up a front for the public, but as my mom says, we don't know... Read More

Suppose I told you that there was a candidate in the US Presidential Election who would give the people more say in how the government is run by federally instituting the National Initiative For Democracy. Suppose this candidate also supported the FairTax, which would eliminate the IRS, and not penalize the rich for being so succesful, while at the same time, not overtaxing the poor. Do they seem like the ideal candidate? Unless you are a Fascist or someting similar, you'd probably think so. So who is this candidate, you might ask. He is Mike Gravel, a 78-year-old Democrat and former Alaskan... Read More

President Bush signed a bill Thursday that overhauls government surveillance rules, and grants immunity to telecommunications companies that helped the government eavesdrop on cell, landline, and computer communications. Bush has hailed this legendary bill a “landmark legislation that is vital to the security of our people.”

Bush originally tried to pass this bill after the 9/11 attacks. Strongly protested by civil rights groups, it has been highly debated in Senate for the last year, and pushed through just last week. The Government will now be able to collect personal... Read More

Growing up in a Southern Baptist church, there were alot of Sundays when the preacher at our church gave sermons on his favorite subjects of choice; sin, fire-and- brimstone, more sin, with a particular focus on Revelation and the Biblical passages which included the mark of the beast and humans being forced to physically wear the 'computer chip' on their bodies. All of these things were to be interpreted by believers as signs of the end of the world which was a very jagged pill to swallow at a young age.

Ironically, when President George W. Bush, a southern born, self proclaimed... Read More

Any American older than 50 can remember the terror of the Cold War between the United States of America and the Soviet Union in the 1970s and 1980s. Both the USA and the Soviets seeked to build the biggest nuclear missles they could, and citizens of both nations lived in perpetual fear of being nuked to oblivion. Today, we have another arms race between Israel and Iran. While I have my own opinions on who is right and who is wrong, this article is not about that. Rather, it is about how terrifying this race has the potential to become. Yesterday, Iran tested missles which have the... Read More
