A Proposal...

Image result for US government meme

I doubt ANYONE finds our current electoral system to be acceptable in this day and age.  It was mostly created by slave owners who believed only property owners/the "Elite" should have a say in electing government officials.  That is why they create a system where the "common man's vote" really meant nothing and the votes of the people THEY placed in the "Electoral College" meant everything.…

Fuck A Whole Bunch of "Civility"!

Image result for civility meme

As someone who personally has been badgered & harassed for my lack of "civility", I find it mildly amusing when I hear the Democratic Elitest and the Corpocracy Owned Republicans both calling for "Civility" from the people they have been oppressing with their corruption, machinations and duplicity.

As Joan Hunter Iovino…

Ana Navarro NAILED It!

I certainly don't agree with Navarro's politics (seeing as how she is a right-wing supporter and strategist for the likes of Jeb Bush and John McCain), but it is nice to see that all "heterosexual, Republican, Catholics" (her own self description)  aren't homophobic asshats.…

Time to give them the boot???

Image result for nasty neighbors

Lets say that your neighbors go on vacation, and while they are gone, the government moves a bunch of very aggressive people into their house (totally without the neighbor's permission, btw).

Of course, you and all of your other members of your Homeowner's Association are upset about this happening, but the government who…

The “Philip Cross” Treatment

How many of you use Wikipedia as a source, or at least as a verification of a source?  

I know I sure DID.  Please note the emphasis on "DID"!

I know...  I know...  Wiki is "unreliable" because they allow just about anyone to edit posts.  That used to not be such a bad thing, but now?

That brings us to…

On the first day of Ramadan Israel sent to me...

Nothing says, "Let's try to deescalate this conflict" and that I have respect for YOUR religion and culture like killing the unarmed civilians that your snipers missed by dropping bombs on them from American bought and paid for F-16s...

Egypt hit out at Israel on Friday for killing civilians in Gaza with 'oppressive policies of mass punishment', while urging the international community to act quickly to end the conflict

Funny how people around here, and in Israel, scream "anti-Semite!!!" at anyone who dares disagree with the actions of their religion and…
