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.

This week’s Twit is part of a complex prisoner exchange involving President Obama’s reputation and a tasty post-employment book deal. We Will Never Forget… Chuck Hagel Oh, it was to be a lovely story. Set against the idyllic backdrop of the White House Rose Garden, President Obama, flanked by Jani and Bo Bergdahl, sang the […]

The Mendota Mental Health Institute might want to do another bed check, because it seems like their governor has slipped out of the facility for the umpteenth time. Wisconsin’s very own Union-busting Scott Walker, a relentless shill for the increasingly mentally maladjusted Republican Party, opened his mouth again, and, predictably, a torrent of stupidity came […]

On Friday officials at the IRS admitted that, […]

Rob Portman and his son, Will

Rob Portman, a conservative windbag that until recently viewed gay men and women as some sort of second class citizenry, has suddenly decided maybe it isn’t such a bad idea to let those sodomites do what they like, instead of having them “be put to death” (his religion’s solution for that “problem” – see Leviticus […]

RoeVsRaedxmas

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 […]

The Republican Party “is full of racists, and the real reason a considerable portion of… (that) party wants President Obama out of the White House has nothing to do with the content of his character, nothing to do with his competence as commander-in-chief and president, and everything to do with the color of his skin, […]

In one of the most clear-cut, decisive victories I have ever seen in a televised debate, Vice President Joe Biden utterly trounced Paul Ryan. The defeat was total. There wasn’t even a smidgen of doubt. Most importantly, it was exactly what the bewildered Democrats needed. After the confusing (and lie-ridden) Romney obfuscation of the first […]

Many months have passed since Mitt Romney became the presumptive Republican Party nominee for president of the United States.
