Keep talking, Rand Paul…We’re Listening

Rand Paul

Rand Paul (R-KY) wants to be President of the United States. He also wants African-Americans to believe that he is not a bigot. During his recent outreach visit to Howard University he  relayed to the students of the elite, predominantly African-American institution that he has never been against the 1964 Civil Rights Act and that he does not have a bigoted bone in his body or a racist feeling in his heart.… [Read more]

Ron Paul’s Policy on Drugs

Drugs and Drug Policy

Retiring Representative Ron Paul (R-TX) has made his views widely known. Among his most-discussed policy ideas are his views on the nation’s ‘War on Drugs’. Paul’s policy on drugs became a topic of  discussion during a recent argument. Quite predictability, Portugal’s success in decriminalizing drugs was claimed as the ultimate proof that Ron Paul’s policy will work in the U.S.… [Read more]

Post-Election Fallout: The Night of the Long Knives, Part Deux

Romney Concession

“This evil organization will not tolerate failure!”  ~ Austin Powers, International Man of Mystery

As a political columnist, I perversely relish morning-after losing side recriminations. As the old ABC Wide World of Sports intro script went: “And the agony of defeat,” whilst showing a clip of why sane people don’t generally tend to take up ski jumping.… [Read more]

Bad Call

Lance Easley

It would take a controversial,  outcome changing, and bungled call by a stand-in scab referee in the Seattle Seahawks-Green Bay Packers game to get even notorious public union buster Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wisc.) tweeting in anger for professional football team owners to end their lockout and bring back competent unionized officiating. After all, it was something as vital as Monday Night Football, and not annoyingly coddled nurses, schoolteachers, and librarians minding our kids.… [Read more]

Oh Ron Paul, You Crazy Old Goat!

Ron Paul

Like Kelly Clarkson, I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for Congressman Ron Paul. I’ve never been one of his staunch supporters but I could respect some of his Libertarian viewpoints, especially his anti-occupation sentiment with regard to the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. I also admired that he’s been a true maverick sharing ideas that ruffle the feathers of his party.… [Read more]

Another Conspiracy Theory About the Kennedy Assassination

leeJared

This is not exactly a conspiracy theory since there is no claim of involvement by any outside party such as the CIA, mafia or even the Soviets. What I am presenting is some disturbing similarities between Lee Harvey Oswald (the sniper who allegedly murdered President Kennedy) and Jared Lee Loughner (the man charged with the shooting in Arizona in which six people were killed and 14 others, including U.S.… [Read more]

It’s A Wrap – Week in Review, April 8, 2012

Borderless News and Views (BNV) logo

Did we end this week the same way we started? Conservative magazine, The National Review, just fired one of its writers. Why? Because the writer, a self-described ‘tolerant racist’, posted an article to white parents that relays the advice he gave his own children about the hazards of being in close proximity to black people.… [Read more]

Ron Paul…

Poor guy…well, not so much. I wonder if he has said anything that people could consider somewhat offensive? Whyyyyyyyyy won’t people listen?… [Read more]

Ron Paul – A Biopsy, Part III

Small Government

In the previous two parts, we have looked at Ron Paul’s racist past and why there is a very strong possibility that he continues to believe in the white supremacy.

In this part let us look at his positions on various issues and understand what he is proposing will bring more violence to this country.

I had multiple offline discussion with various people over my previous articles on Ron Paul.  … [Read more]

It’s A Wrap – Week In Review February 26, 2012

Borderless News and Views (BNV) logo

Say what you mean and mean what you say. Well, maybe that’s not always a good thing — at least when the person saying what he means is a certain sweater vest-wearing presidential candidate. After all, if a candidate says what he really means then (thinking) people may not cast a vote for him, right?

Thankfully, Rick Santorum has no filter; ridiculous statements he made this past week seemed to have the underlying theme of control — mostly over women’s bodies.… [Read more]

Ron Paul – A Biopsy, Part II

AryanCowboy

I had some offline discussions as soon as my last article about Ron Paul went online. It became obvious after exchanging a few emails that what is missing is a reference to context. The difference in our interpretation is due to a great analytical book that I had read recently.

Here is a short review of the book that should give you a reference to context; I would certainly recommend that you invest time in reading the complete book.… [Read more]

Ron Paul – A Biopsy, Part I

Ron Paul Ku Klux

I ran into some surprising arguments with two of my friends after my last post on Ron Paul.  It was rather shocking to see support for this monster from two of my acquaintances.

I had no idea Ron Paul has managed to fool even sensible people. Apparently, he has managed some success with hiding his true agenda since one of those friends is exactly the type that Ron Paul hates:  Indian immigrant (read non-White) and a software professional (read urban).… [Read more]

What To Get Your GOP Crush For Valentine’s Day

Valentines Day Elephant

So it’s Valentine’s Day, and even though you totally decided last week that you LOURVEE [GOP primary candidate] and totally want to go steady with him, you just were too busy and forgot to get the Valentine’s chocolates/card/Super PAC you meant to. Now all you can imagine is him sitting at home alone chugging caviar-covered Haagen Daaz (or whatever rich people eat), sobbing bitterly and ruminating on those sad, sad Elementary years when Joanie McAmerica would pass them by for the older, cooler candidates.… [Read more]

It’s A Wrap – Week In Review February 5, 2012

Borderless News and Views (BNV) logo

Open mouth, insert foot. The thing about primary season is that those of us who are interested and affected observers will be presented with several sides of the same face. There is the side the candidates want us to see; the side the media chooses to reveal; the version presented by the comedians who, thankfully, make us laugh at the folly of it all; and, of course, the real side that the candidates want to keep hidden.… [Read more]

(No) Sympathy For The Devil

devil_ron-paul

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]

We DO Need An Education

Brick Wall

The first sentences of Pink Floyd’s inimitable song ‘Another Brick In The Wall (Part 2)’ goes “We don’t need no education”…”We don’t need no thought control“. With all due respect to one of the greatest bands of all time, while I certainly agree with the latter, I disagree with the former.

“A world-class education is the single most important factor in determining not just whether our kids can compete for the best jobs but whether America can out-compete countries around the world.… [Read more]

Top 10 Re-Assigned Quotes For GOP Candidates

QuotationMarks

Sometimes we hear statements that end up so appropriate in another context. With that in mind, following are 10 quotes that could either be assigned to or come directly from the remaining GOP Presidential candidates.

Mitt Romney:

“Art is about making something out of nothing and selling it.”

~ Frank Zappa

*We figure that to have lasted this long, Mitt is clearly quite good at selling something even though we can see that there’s no substance there.*

And…

Mitt Romney’s response to most questions — even when it seems that he has given an answer:

“There ain’t no answer.… [Read more]

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

Reagan_Ronald_Saint

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]

2012 Republicans May Not Believe in Climate Change, But Your Insurance Company Does

“I believe the earth gets warmer and I also believe the earth gets cooler. And I think history points out that it does that and that the idea that man…is somehow responsible for climate change is, I think, just patently absurd when you consider all the other factors.”  ~ Rick Santorum,

“I actually don’t know whether global warming is occurring.” ~ Newt Gingrich

“My view is that we don’t know what’s causing climate change on this planet.” ~ Mitt Romney

“There is no consensus in the scientific community that global warming is getting worse or that it is man-made.” ~ Ron Paul

2011 was a record high year for disasters: Hurricane Irene, a blizzard, the floods in Mississippi and the wildfires in Texas.… [Read more]

Secrecy, Lies and…Campaigning

phony-balony

Though you behave as though you’re forthright, you seem to have so much to hide, Mitt Romney. It’s the secrecy…it’s the double-talk….it’s the evasiveness.  We don’t know who you are — and, unfortunately, the things we DO know are things that help us to understand why even your own base doesn’t like or trust you that much.  … [Read more]
