“Occupy Unmasked” Mostly “Occupy Unwatched”

Did we say “Spring 2012” Whoops!

Well, June 5 is technically still spring, right? But then… um… Who’s to say when one season ends and another begins. This is BREITBART WORLD after all, and practical rules of physics do not apply here. Things ARE what WE say they are! So it will open in JUNE…

Yeah.… [Read more]

Panic in Bachmannland

Rarely do days go by without some controversial and embarrassing gaffe from Tea Party darling and failed Presidential hopeful Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.). In her last two wins, she and her network of ultra-conservatives probably thought once near certain polling numbers meant she had the latitude to even run for the G.O.P.’s 2012 Presidential nominee with her congressional duties safely on autopilot.… [Read more]

Wrap It Up – I’m Dreaming

Although this is a satirical piece, we have no doubt that there are many who feel this way. Randy Newman’s song, “I’m Dreaming“, is an interesting trip down memory lane and, given Mitt Romney’s latest debacle, there’s something about this that seems like it’s what Romney and his ilk are hoping for.

Sorry folks.… [Read more]

I’m Melting!

We’ve all heard that Mitt Romney pronounced at a closed fundraiser that he’s not interested in campaigning to the supposed 47% of Americans who don’t pay income tax and/or are to some extent dependent upon government.  Never mind that he was quoting the number for 2010. Of course, these families still pay taxes a-plenty, including state income tax and various local and sales taxes –generally the largest portion of their tax burden and among the most regressive of all taxes.… [Read more]

Get Out and VOTE!

Here’s a find: two women with wonderful voices singing “Get Out and Vote!” The ladies, whose video announces them as lesbian duo Bria and Chrissy, say that this is “Our song encouraging you to get out and vote, with the pros and cons of Obama or Romney being President, completely objective of course.”

You decide; I think they’re on point!… [Read more]

Travel Log: Vietnam – The North

Striving towards becoming borderless involves traveling the world. How else can one really experience a culture without visiting?

Hanoi is bedlam! Motor bikes, bicycles, scooters, cars and trucks all trying to navigate simultaneously with their horns, rules of the road and traffic signals are completely ignored and pedestrian crossings serve no other purpose than to consume white paint.… [Read more]

Our Herculean President

We loyal lefties have had to endure some hits this go around. From the ACA (“ObamaCare”) without a public option, to necessary bank bailouts with no strings attached, to continued wholesale tax giveaways for the rich and corporate welfare for Exxon/Mobil and the like, to watered down legislation of all varieties, it hasn’t been a perfect ride.… [Read more]

Romney’s Chronic Electile Dysfunction

With 46 days left until Election Day, I don’t know who’s flying the wobbly Romney campaign mothership, but they might just be the ones with a scarf bearing a Rising Sun tied over their forehead.

Former Hawaii Gov. Linda Lingle (R) is running for one of the Aloha State’s Senate seats. Lingle was among the panicking Republicans who have hurriedly left Mittens’ latest in the loo, next to the Ty-D-Bol.… [Read more]

Unfit

You have to be kidding me if you tell me that there’s anyone who considers Mitt Romney to be of viable presidential material after his latest blunder, in which he called Barack Obama supporters people who are always looking for a government handout. He said the 47% of Americans who support the President for re-election do so because all they want is a government to give them something like health care, housing, food.… [Read more]

A Problem With Religion

There are a lot of reasons to not adhere to a religion: more free time on the weekends, fewer dietary restrictions, less guilt associated with your own existence. As a non-religious person, I am an outsider, and as an outsider I can look at a situation like the attack that occurred in Benghazi, Libya, last Tuesday and see it objectively and without spiritual preconceptions.… [Read more]
