Carthaginian Peace In The Levant

Posted on 22. Jul, 2014 by in Analysis, Current Events

Gaza burns

Israel is in yet another conflict with Palestine, and, like many of the previous ones, it a mess almost entirely of their own making.  Israel’s continual and unrelenting campaign to crush the Palestinian cause has ensured continued resistance from the beleaguered residents of the Gaza Strip. While they talk about ceasefire and detente, the Israelis […]

A Defeat For Common Sense, Decency, In Florida

Posted on 14. Jul, 2013 by in Analysis, Current Events


A great national tragedy befell the United States yesterday evening. George Zimmerman murdered a boy named Trayvon Martin and a jury decided that Mr. Zimmerman, despite overwhelming evidence of his guilt, should go free. The situation may have been best summed up by civil rights leader Reverend Al Sharpton when he branded the outcome of […]

Russian Intransigence Continues

Posted on 26. Jun, 2013 by in Current Events, Politics


If his goal is to avoid U.S. prosecution and thoroughly annoy his former bosses, Edward Snowden couldn’t have chosen a better place to go than Moscow. Russia, still mired in wet dreams of Soviet-era world power, is always anxious to find a reason to mess with the United States. The Russians must have found a […]

Inaugural Parade.JPEG-0e5aa

Here we are, back at the beginning. Four years ago I wrote an article, Panem Et Circenses On The Potomac, chronicling the epic overindulgence of the raucous coronation of our Lord and Savior King Barack Obama. The 2008 Obama inauguration was such a spectacle of waste and excess that this comparison is not difficult to […]

Roe v. Raed: The A-Wassailing Edition

Posted on 23. Dec, 2012 by in Current Events, Politics


Today’s topic: Political chicanery with a Christmas twist! Dreaming Of A Working Government by Theodore Roe Three years ago I wrote a little ditty about how the Democrat-dominated legislature couldn’t stop writing stupid laws. Now they can’t seem to write anything at all. So, without further ado, I give you my rendition of White Christmas […]

Desperation, Foolishness, Drive Romney To New Lows

Posted on 17. Sep, 2012 by in Current Events, Politics


Last week Mitt Romney yet again proved what a tremendously terrible president he would be.  He chose to make political hay over how a local embassy chief expressed a message of religious tolerance hours before a riot broke out, and laid the blame for this chief’s actions squarely at the feet of President Barack Obama.  Rarely have I seen this level of idiocy displayed on the national stage.

Paul Ryan’s Demise

Posted on 12. Aug, 2012 by in Current Events, Politics


Paul Ryan may have made the greatest mistake of his political career yesterday when he publically admitted to the crime of being stupid enough to jump on the Romney ticket. I’m not sure what he was promised, how much campaign money and/or political clout the RNC heavies offered him, but there is no way it […]

Should The Big G Be Your Sugar Daddy?

Posted on 04. Feb, 2012 by in Current Events, Politics


Sweet, sweet sucrose-injected, fructose-laced damnation awaits us all, at least according to a recent article in Nature magazine. Three researchers in California have produced a report that shows the toxic danger of sugar, eventually going on to suggest that it should be regulated by federal governments as a controlled substance. I would like to sidestep […]

Theodore Roe: Good to see you again, Joe. Joseph Fosco: Thank you, Sir. It is always a pleasure to speak with you. TR: Let’s dive right in, shall we? How was your year? JF: I spent the entire year of 2011 living cancer free and I am very lucky to be able to say it. […]
