The Republican National Convention is about to start and there’s a storm a’brewin’. Yes friends, God is pissed and she ain’t gonna take it anymore.
Our current healthcare system is not a system and it’s not about caring for anyone’s health. It’s about CEO bonuses, stockholder dividends, and return on investment. Our healthcare system is a cluster-fuck. It’s a cluster-fuck system that bankrupts many of the middle class.
Some say Obama is a savior and some say Obama is the devil. He’s really neither. What he is is the guy whose had the balls to actually put a reasonably fair plan together. Continue reading
Rick Santorum has gone beyond amusing. He is now approaching dangerous. He’s even scaring the right-wing of the Republican party and that really takes some doing. Comparisons to the Ayatollahs of Iran is inevitable.
If the Christian right is happy to have a crusader on their side I would like to suggest they think this through. I realize that’s asking a lot of people who do a lot of blind following. But please consider how you would feel if the next president was proselytizing for Islam, or Wicca or worst yet Atheism!
Santorumanity: Rick Santorum’s own view of Christianity
Our country was founded by people who were fleeing England because they chose not to follow a state religion. Santorum’s views and politics will make Christianity our new state religion. Not just any Christianity but Santorumanity, Rick’s view of Christianity. There are too many versions of Christianity to count in this country and each thinks it’s “THE ONE”. Rick Santorum is sure that his is the right one. When he has the ability to sway secular laws to enforce religious views, your flavor of Christianity might not win. Sound familiar? That’s how theocracies work.
Rick Santorum’s policies could easily become this….
I really wanted to come up with a humorous and positive list of the top news stories of 2011 but even I’m not that good.
It’s sad when one of the most positive stories is killing a guy in a pathetic desert compound. That being said let’s see if I’ve got the chops to spin 2011 into something positive or at least not completely depressing. (Don’t hold your breath.) Continue reading
The holidays bring us all an excess of baking and sharing. Leftovers abound and everyone goes home with tupperwares full of goodies. If you’re like us, you may sometimes hang on to these treasures a little too long. Along about March you discover a plastic container in the back of the fridge that’s starting to spontaneously come to life. If your leftovers start to mumble it’s time toss them.
What’s the longest you’ve ever held on to a Christmas goodie? A month? Three months? Served it for a Labor Day snack? How about a century?
Leave it to the folks in Minnesota, the birthplace of ‘covered dish’ and the Jello Olympics to go for the record.
According to an article by Lee Svitak Dean of the Star Tribune one Pierre Girard, of Golden Valley, MN is the proud owner of a cake baked in 1911. It was found by folks going through a house for an estate sale and has the details written on the box it was carefully preserved in.
Surprisingly this isn’t the oldest cake around. According to the Mail Online, the Guinness World Record goes to, hold your breath now, an 1898 wedding cake baked in England in 1898.
That should surprise no one. Have you eaten English food? I’m sure there are plenty of English puddings that have been around far longer than that. Everybody is just afraid to open the cupboard and look. (Apologies to my readers in the British Empire, but really, you know I’m right.)
So my advice for the holidays? Eat your goodies so they don’t end up as blog fodder a century from now!
We’ve all seen the scenes of clashes between the police and the ‘Occupy’ protesters in various cities. In the heartland of America not even Tulsa, OK has been spared as members of Occupy Tulsa chained themselves to a fence in front of city hall.
Police were called in but their reaction was, to say the least, subdued. The mob consisted of three guys… one of whom appears to be waiting for the re-opening of V for Vendetta.

A few weeks ago I was thinking about NASA. I was angry and disappointed with them.
They have gone to other planets.
They have sent deep space probes to explore the galaxy.
However…they have yet to deliver my jetpack. Continue reading
The hallmark of mankind is his (or her) ability to shape his environment to suit his needs. Earliest humans began by shaping sticks and stones into tools. Over the millennium we have advanced from the simple technology of a hollowed-out gourd to space travel. Somewhere during this journey we seemed to have gotten off track. We now invent for the sake of invention. It’s not pretty. Continue reading
It’s time to set partisan politics aside and acknowledge that Herman Cain is the Anti-Christ. The signs are obvious to anyone who is not afraid to look. There is both Biblical prophecy and more importantly a Nostradamus Quatrain to support this stance. Continue reading
The next time your shopping think about our friends in Japan. While we look for healthy choices in our diets, they are too. But with other considerations in mind. We don’t often ask ourselves,
