It’s A Wrap – Week In Review February 12, 2012

This week ended with the passing of an icon, music legend Whitney Houston. At 48 years of age, the amazingly talented Ms. Houston leaves behind a legacy filled with publicly documented personal ups and downs — but history books won’t soon forget the impact she had on the music industry and song stylists everywhere; she touched the hearts of millions of people around the world and her voice will live on forever.… [Read more]

5 Annoying Things That Liberals Do

Everyone has a list about something or other. I’m joining the list of people who make lists; my list contains the top 5 annoying things that liberals do.

  1. Bitch and  Complain about President Obama even more than those on the right do.  Hold your horses — am I saying he’s perfect? No. Not at all. He is, after all, a man.

Freddie Mac: Gotta First-Born Child? You Gotta Loan!

Dear Valued Borrower,

With the landslide success of the Let Freddie Mac Do Whatever the Hell They Want Act of 2012 (also known as HR-65), we at Freddie Mac are pleased to announce the nation’s first ever First Infant-Backed (FIB) secured loan refinancing option! With a FIB loan, almost anyone can get a loan for a new home, jet ski, or stylish “man cave” without nasty credit checks or outrageous interest rates.… [Read more]

(No) Sympathy For The Devil

Ron Paul…you amuse me!  You are simultaneously the purveyor of patriotism, the doctor of doom and the titan of TeaBagistan!

Like Beelzebub, you have your good points; your sensible talk about wasteful spending on the so-called War on Drugs has seduced many a follower. Like Lucifer you can bring just enough light to convince your minions of your vast knowledge.… [Read more]

New Republican Debate to Focus on Breadth, Depth of Candidates’ Reagan Trivia

Sensing an overall lull in interest after approaching the 3652nd Republican Primary Debate of the 2012 election, RNC chairman Reince Prebus has announced that the next GOP debate will be focused exclusively around trivia relating to former President, and GOP man-God, Ronald Reagan.Prebus, in an exclusive interview to Borderless News and Views(BNV), said, “So we were all sitting around, trying to figure out how to try and get people interesting in the shit-slinging again.… [Read more]

It’s a Wrap – Week In Review, January 22, 2012

What a week! We started the week with a national holiday, the annual celebration of the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I Have A Dream reminds us that we have come so far as a nation but we still have a long way to go.  When we take time to look at how far we have to push forward in order to make that “more perfect Union”, we have to take a step back to see where we went wrong.… [Read more]

People Are Crazy

“God is great, beer is good and people are crazy.”

~ Billy Currington

Though I’m not at all a religious person, hearing a statement like that is somewhat reassuring in that it’s a simply put way of saying that things will be fine. Despite all of the craziness we experience on a daily basis, we’ll be OK; today we are taking a break from primaries, debates, caucuses and campaigning to remember just that.… [Read more]

False Narrative: The GOP Primaries

I’m so grateful for the moment I realized the relationship between information, perspective, and context.  And how, in the absence of information, perspective is conveniently tilted toward the strongest, bestowing upon the most powerful, the most favor. For example, one could argue that it is within this context that Christopher Columbus is still credited with “discovering” America.… [Read more]

Going Forward With Mitt

Mitt Romney won the New Hampshire primaries yesterday. To most of us, that is no surprise. What still is a surprise, to me, OK, not really is just how far Mitt has come. That speaks well for his sense of self-preservation, determination and willingness to be flexible considering he has changed his own history just to appear ‘electable’ to the residents of TeaBagistan.… [Read more]

Wall Street Is Confused?

Five hours of gentle sipping on gin and tonics, can make an excited man. It can also make angry men watching the excitement even angrier. Some could call that reaction judgmental.

Judgy McJudge-Alot sat staring at Happy McHapystance yesterday evening after a long, arduous day of business negotiations. Both men have VIP status in the world (probably even more so in their minds).… [Read more]

With Friends Like These

…who needs enemies?  I’m betting that is what Mitt Romney is thinking. In addition to his prior (and completely unforgivable) blunder of unleashing the Hounds of Hell Sarah Palin and her family on the country, John McCain is on the ‘Support Mitt‘ tour.  Or is he? Normally, it would be a good thing to have a senior statesman from one’s own party in your corner, right?… [Read more]

2011: A Blurry Year In Review

This is the time of year when those ‘Year In  Review’ articles appear. The thinking behind (some of) it is that in order to move forward, we should take a look back so that we may see what what we’ve survived and examine the lessons learned along the way. Here’s a small slice of what we recall in no particular order (hey, it’s still holiday season so we’re perfectly fine with being a wee bit foggy from all that, um, holiday cheer).… [Read more]

Kim Jong-il, Rest in Pea…actually, nevermind

I don’t know much about Kim Jong-il, except that his lil hair and glasses were hilarious…and that he seemed certifiably *off* (not quite there; not the sharpest knife in the cutlery set; not the brightest bulb in the box). The commentators called him “eccentric,” while we who have little allegiance to political correctness, called a spade a spade — dude was off.… [Read more]

A FOX News Haiku

A haiku is a traditional Japanese poem comprised of 3 lines. The structure is such that there is a total of 17 syllables (5, 7, and 5 syllables, respectively). So, in keeping this post short, in the tradition of haiku, I leave you with this example. It came to mind as I heard an interview with the crafty Roger Ailes, Chairman of the Fox Television Stations Group and master seller of gloom, doom and fear stating that Fox News is going to correct its course away from the ‘far right’.… [Read more]
