The Effects of Social Media on Trayvon Martin

Why The Blaze’s story makes me sad. “However, if genuine, these Tweets may give us more insight into Martin’s enigmatic life and character.” That last sentence from this article at The Blaze troubled me.

F*@#nuts in Afghanistan

A douchebag does something horrible. Thanks, unnamed Staff Sergeant, for your unbelievable dumbshit act of senseless brutality. Now the Army sits back nervously to see what kind of blowback this will earn us from the locals.

Homophobia in The Gaming Community?


Critically Acclaimed Mass Effect 3 sees its Metacritic score tanked by Homophobes. Many of us in the gaming community see the expanding roles of video games and their impact on popular culture. The gaming industry is, capital wise, as big as the movie industry. With the greater amount of investment cash poured into gaming, I …

Limbaugh Fo-Pologizes

Somehow Rush blames Liberals for his liable of Sandra Fluke. When I am going out for lunch I normally tune into AM talk radio so I can soak up how those on other side of the political spectrum view issues. I caught Rush on day two of the Sandra Fluke story. He was venomous in …

The Operators

Michael Hastings covers the unwinnable Afghanistan. Recently my buddy clued me into to another light colonel who “Hackworthed” or sacrificed his career in the hopes of raising consciousness about an unwinnable fight.  LT. COL Daniel L.

SSSD and Fox

Long day at work standing around, talking on a radio, and filling out official looking forms. Thus, I didn’t get a chance to do much reading. However, I did run across a FOX News article trying to stir up some controversy about Rock Beyond Belief. The theme of those opposed to the event is that …

Birther PAC

Unlimited money to promote unlimited stupidity. The Minuteman organization, a loose collection of civilians who both advocate for greater border security and watch the boarder themselves, has formed a Political Action Committee.

John Edward, Relationship Genius

I actually still can’t believe this happened. Today was a long one, eleven and a half hours. Consequently I didn’t get to read or write much but this, sadly, caught my eye.
