A Special Kind of Stupid

on February 10, 2013, 7:48 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

I call Republicans spineless, ineffectual political pussies. They are busy trying to get the Democrats to like them and in so doing they have become Democrat-lite. There is not two cents worth of difference between the Democrat elites and the Republican elites. They are both the enemies of America, always milking hard-working citizens to fund their bogus, wasteful projects. Who […]

This week, an unclassified memorandum prepared by the Justice Department for members of Congress on the drone killings accidentally became public. The actual Office of Legal Counsel opinion which purports to authorize this program is still a wrongfully classified secret, and a federal judge just refused a FOIA request from the New York Times for release of the document.

Life after the tornado is very quiet. It was three weeks ago that several devastating tornados touched down here. Coming back here has been truly heartbreaking. The NPR station is off the air. The cable is out. The DSL doesn’t work. It’s so awfully quiet. My complaints are paltry compared to the suffering of many here. Yesterday I drove downtown, […]
