Much like Sarah Palin or Ann Coulter, whenever Michael Brown pops up in the news, on a radio or television station, my first response is typically “Umm, why the fuck are we supposed to care what you think about, well, anything?” I mean, Sarah was a shit governor nominated on a lark in a losing presidential campaign, who became even more famous for being an … Continue reading Well, that explains a lot…
And it’s genius. He did so well the first time running against G.W. Bush and his harsh, conservative record, he has decided to do it again, by simply running against his own first term. This will of course only require he maintain his current course, because it would appear being “the only adult in the room” is akin to simply caving in and making decisions … Continue reading I figured out Obama’s re-election strategy, finally…
I used to know a bartender at Molly’s on Toulouse, small bar on Toulouse (duh) between Royal and Bourbon, and I loved the place…small, pool table, open windows to the street…old feel, and it was close enough to Bourbon and all the idiocy contained therein one could step outside for a smoke and look the half block up to watch fraternities, sororities, christianit-ies, stupidities and … Continue reading Bourbon street, war, violence…and hey! Take it down a notch…with Rancid!
In a word? Climate. I’m not talking about environmental climate change, I’m talking about the political climate, the deregulation climate, the climate that continues to sweep through this country and threatens you, the American citizen at your door with not a polite knock, it’s more akin to home invasion, battering rams that splinter the wood with its force until the whole thing smashes in and … Continue reading What does Wisconsin have to do with the Gulf Coast?
Hello again. Yes, I still kill people for a living. And yes, I’m in a union. It’s kind of an off-shoot of the union most US Marshals belong to but we keep it kind of quiet – so that’s all I really want to say about it. Damn. That might even be too much…well, its a risk I’m willing to take and why not? I’m … Continue reading Would you believe assassins have a union? We do…
Back in the first week of January, I wrote a little something about how the reparation money paid to claimants should be tax free. In the hard times across the Gulf Coast, the last thing people need is to budget 25% of their payment to the IRS, especially people receiving the quick payment: 25% of $5000 dollars to an individual or $25,000 dollars to business. Well, … Continue reading Really, Obama? No tax breaks for claimants?
Yeah, he said it, not kidding, while giving a speech to students at the Cambridge University Society and several explanations immediately come to mind: 1. He and Jane Lubchenco of the NOAA are still spending way too much time together. 2. He figured that if doing a tour can work for GW Bush, why not him? 3. The American press isn’t paying attention anymore so … Continue reading Tony Hayward “All the oil is gone.”
You know that post I wrote yesterday? That whole outreach to your community thing cause its important to know your neighbors in these economic and political times? Yeah, I still agree with what I wrote – even more now because not even on my most cynical day could I have expected the fantastic amounts of utter shit I had to deal with in the headlines … Continue reading This citizen is officially on overload…Barton potentially chairs house energy panel, and more!
Sometimes you need a break… Pearl Jam – Do The Evolution The hidden subtext? Obviously… Dear God, I know it’s been awhile since I said hello. My bad, but things have been going pretty good so, thanks. I do have a request though and I’ve been thinking about it for a while now. So, here goes: Please, I’m begging you, please…can you back away from … Continue reading And now, a word from our sponsors…Vol. 14 – Prayer Version
Two days ago, Verizon and Google went public with their vision of the “free and open” internet, but as people are quickly learning, free and open is the last way to describe their ideas. They propose zero net-neutrality on wireless networks – what many people understand to be the future of the internet – and a standard for “non-discrimination” so empty discrimination will most certainly occur. Their … Continue reading Spine to spare? Please donate to the FCC, act now!
