American Drone Addiction

Being against the usage of unmanned aerial vehicles, also known as “drones,” for any situation with no exceptions is, to be frank, idiotic and pointless.

UAVs are more precise than conventional weaponry at reducing civilian casualties. They also intrinsically prevent the loss of American military life in combat.

To be anti-drone in our time is tantamount to being anti-tank or anti-fighter jet during the early 20th century.… [Read more]

Rodman to Obama: Call Kim Maybe?

In the middle of a week that can only fall under the category of our founder’s favorite phrase —sequestration, an allegedly semi-divine pontiff resigning, sinkholes in Florida, massive Winter Storms from Maine to Virginia, these still do not merit the title of “What the living f*ck!?”

It’s when the first American guest of the last holdout of Stalinesque brutality and Leader Worship is a seven-foot, cross-dressing former NBA star.… [Read more]

‘Special Powers’ Allows for Trampling on Women’s and Civil Rights

Before the sequestered budget cuts redirected attention to our elected officials’ inability to work towards a goal beneficial to most Americans, the news cycle contained stories about other items of importance, such as foreign policy and even issues such as the right to privacy. Many of these issues have something in common: the potential for governmental overreach of its authority.… [Read more]

The U.S. Gift to Syrian Opposition Forces. What’s the Agenda?

Secretary of State John Kerry announced that the Obama administration will be giving $60 million in non-lethal aid to the Syrian Opposition. The aid will be in the form of medical supplies and food for the forces struggling to oust the Bashar al-Assad regime. This remark was made in the shadow of the looming financial “tumble,” as phrased by President Barack Obama, threatens the nation.… [Read more]

Paving the Way to a Legacy: Beyond Inauguration Day

With the eyes of the nation focused on the steps of the U.S. Capitol, Barack H. Obama will be sworn in for his second term as the 44th President of the United States.

Whether we agree with his politics or policies there is one thing about which we should all agree: we are bearing witness to a powerful, historic event – one which is a significant reminder of the greatness of a democracy.… [Read more]

It’s Time for a More Moral Foreign Policy

One of the things that perplexes me most about conservative criticisms of President Barack Obama is their general painting of a man who, from any sane perspective, appears to be a moderate Democrat, as the second coming of Stalin or Mao.

Liberals criticized Obama throughout his first term for not being leftist enough, yet conservatives babbled on about how the man secretly craved the destruction of global capitalism and the collapse of the U.S.… [Read more]

Romney’s Hypocrisy on Pakistan and Russia

Throughout most of his campaign, as well as during Monday’s presidential debate, Mitt Romney has taken strong, uncompromising stances on an array of countries for supporting terrorism or tyrannical actions and policies. Yet during Monday night’s debate, there was one country where Romney seemed to take a 360 on in regards to this “zero-tolerance” approach.

Despite illiberal policies and continued support for fanatical terrorist groups by factions of the government and military, Romney strongly warned against any type of weakening or severing of U.S.-Pakistani relations.… [Read more]

Falling off “horses” and landing on “bayonets.”

In the national anthem of the island of Margaritaville, Jimmy Buffett sang about a libation-fueled crawl including a “blew out my flip flop” mishap.  I think Mitt Romney owns a Bain-acquired flip-flop warehouse just to cover his blown footwear needs.  To cite my decades-long following of Caribbean troubadour Brother Jimmy again, teetotaling, decaf Mitt Romney “stepped on a [LOT] of pop-top[s].”  It’s  two weeks until Election Day.… [Read more]

Stupid Questions: 28000 Series – Romney’s Chinese Taxes

You know how people say the only stupid questions are the ones not asked…

In this case stupid question are the ones unasked in the media, because we all know how smart people with “J-School” degrees are.  “J-Schools” are journalism schools that evidently teach their students about ethics and being smarter than everyone else about everything. … [Read more]

A Scene from the Romney White House

The Diplomat from China was waved through the back entrance to the White House, just like a hundred times before.

Since President Romney took office things have been great for the Chinese. The invasion of Taiwan took place and the country was securely absorbed with the mainland. Over 250,000 Taiwanese died fighting the invasion, but the island is slated to become a resort for the new Mainland’s middle class.… [Read more]
