Can we get a new warmonger on tv?

I Am Sick of John McCain

by
I really wish the news would find another member of the evangelical christian party of god to talk to when there is a possible international military conflict. Every time there is a discussion about possible military intervention they roll out good old reliable John McCain and he never fails to disappoint. He comes out swinging. [&hellip

Rand Paul is a bit of conundrum for me. In a lot of cases he makes total sense. I do like a lot of the Libertarian positions. I love the opposition to warrantless wiretapping and the Patriot Act. I also like that he opposes ...
Respect, but Not Necessarily Agreement

A Degree of Respect for Rand

by
Rand Paul is a bit of conundrum for me. In a lot of cases he makes total sense. I do like a lot of the Libertarian positions. I love the opposition to warrantless wiretapping and the Patriot Act. I also like that he opposes the militarization of the police. These are things that I support, [&hellip

I understand that politicians are trained to stay on message. Even if that involves bending or outright breaking the facts. I get it. What I have a problem with is when staying on message goes to the point of being ...
I know you have to stay on message, but really?

Please Stop Saying Ridiculous Things

by
I understand that politicians are trained to stay on message. Even if that involves bending or outright breaking the facts. I get it. What I have a problem with is when staying on message goes to the point of being ridiculous. The most recent example of this was John Boehner’s response to the Amtrak derailment [&hellip

A while ago I said on Twitter that I was going to write a post about Intuit lobbing to keep the tax code as complicated as possible. The problem was then things got busy and the post dropped to the bottom of the “to do” ...
Ensure laws that protect profits not people

Intuit Is Only Doing What Every Other Company Does

by
A while ago I said on Twitter that I was going to write a post about Intuit lobbing to keep the tax code as complicated as possible. The problem was then things got busy and the post dropped to the bottom of the “to do” list. But the bottom of the list doesn’t mean off [&hellip

There are the cases that we all hear about: Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Walter Scott, Tamir Rice. They grab headlines and cause protests. The problem is that for every incident that gets headlines, there are many others that ...
At least the criminals can be convicted for breaking the law

Who Is More Frightening, The Criminals Or The Police?

by
There are the cases that we all hear about: Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Walter Scott, Tamir Rice. They grab headlines and cause protests. The problem is that for every incident that gets headlines, there are many others that simply do not get reported. The difference is that these attacks are caught on video and the [&hellip

A week ago Governor Brown of California put in place mandatory water use restrictions. The restrictions, as best I can gather from my limited research, require a 25% cut in water usage for everyone except agriculture, which ...
You mean I can't have green grass in a desert?

WHAT WOULD ARI DO PT 8: THE COLOR OF YOUR LAWN IS FUCKING IRRELEVENT

by
A week ago Governor Brown of California put in place mandatory water use restrictions. The restrictions, as best I can gather from my limited research, require a 25% cut in water usage for everyone except agriculture, which I think represents approximately 80% of the total water usage. So let me start by saying “Way to [&hellip

Not Helping

TEMPEST IN A TWEET

by
I always knew there were Twitter controversies. Things that exploded on Twitter and other forms of social media that had a profound effect on someone or something. Usually I don’t really pay attention to these things. But over the past week or so, I have seen two of them. The first was a minor dustup [&hellip

Yesterday I wrote a post about how Trevor Noah may have the worst job in the world. He is trying to follow Jon Stewart as the host of The Daily Show. In the entire post, I did not explore if Trevor was qualified to do the ...
But maybe I am not a great judge of offensive

Don’t Know What I Think

Yesterday I wrote a post about how Trevor Noah may have the worst job in the world. He is trying to follow Jon Stewart as the host of The Daily Show. In the entire post, I did not explore if Trevor was qualified to do the job, if he had any skeletons in his closet, [&hellip

As the presidential run begins to heat up, what with Carnival Cruz having announced and Marco Rubio (Bonus points if you can come up with a snarkey name for him to go along with Mittens Romney and Carnival Cruz), planning to ...
Not enough money on the planet for that job

Worst. Job. Ever.

by
As the presidential run begins to heat up, what with Carnival Cruz having announced and Marco Rubio (Bonus points if you can come up with a snarkey name for him to go along with Mittens Romney and Carnival Cruz), planning to announce on the 13th of April, I think it is time to reaffirm my [&hellip
