Share

The year isn’t yet over, but we’ve already seen a lot of scary stuff this past year. Here are some of the most frightening images that stand out in my mind:   $6 dollar gasoline in 2008:   Teanuts don’t need no stinkin’ Halloween to play dress-up & make complete fools of themselves:   Sometimes, […]

A Brief History Lesson: The Great Stock Market Crash of 1929, 82 years ago today.

Share

A brief history lesson: It was 82 years ago today that a real estate bubble allowed unregulated banks to engage in WILD speculation on Wall Street. Many people don’t know that the economy had actually been turning bad for nearly a year prior to the great Stock Market Crash of 1929. The Market had its […]

Sour Grapes Make for Bitter Whine.

Share

After news broke that Kadafi/Kadaffi/Qadafi/Qaddaffi/Gaddafi/whatever had been captured and killed by Libyan rebels Friday afternoon, if was only natural for everyone to wonder just how the GOP Presidential Candidates would spin yet another foreign policy coup for President Obama.

Was Perry’s “jobs plan” really only his “energy policy”? No one seems to know. And with good reason.

Share

On Friday, the Perry campaign released a copy of the candidate’s “Jobs Plan”… or did he? No one seems to be able to agree on that one simple point. The Perry website (no link.

A Few Protest Sign Ideas for the #OWS Crowd

Share

The Occupy Wall Street protests have grown considerably over the past three weeks when they first began. They were ignored for a long time until NYC police officers went on a rampage, hauling away protesters and in one dramatic unprovoked incident caught on video, indiscriminately doused protestors with pepper spray.

The Sunday “Unintentionally” Funnies

Share

As my regular readers know by now, I spend every Sunday morning watching three of the four network news Sunday political talkshows: “Fox ‘news’ Sunday”, “Meet the Press”, and ABC’s “ThisWeek”. ABC ends their show with a fun segment they call “Sunday funnies”, but this week, the entire show was filled with unintentionally funny moments I just HAD to compile […]
