And so, after almost 6 months of civil war, Tripoli has been taken by rebel forces. The final chapter of the armed revolution has been written, but the fight for freedom is just beginning. However, it’s sad to see social conservatives moving to fill power gaps as soon as the more liberal youths succeeded in …

Sean Hannity Rewrites History…Again

Last Tuesday Sean Hannity told an abject lie, That the housing crisis was caused by President Barak Obama. Are you fracking kidding me? I don’t know what’s more offensive, memo driven news, or the contempt FOX (in this case) executives must have for their own viewers. I understand the economic collapse was complicated; in fact …

Whats Wrong With America

We Stopped Dreaming I caught the last episode of Real Time from TPB a few days back and was pleasantly surprised that the panel (the only real reason to watch that show IMHO) was more excellent than usual. Not only did it feature a representative from the tea party, it had Neil deGrasse Tyson. I …

Why I am not a Republican

a view

Once, one of my fellow officers asked me, “Your so conservative on so many things, why don’t you vote republican?” I replied. Despite my semi-independent political stance, I cannot bring myself to vote republican. I can forgive them for supporting the American corporate oligarchy. That, at least, is logical; one of the great things about …
