February 1, 2006

Thankfully, the hard working people whose job it is to protect our leader from any exposure to dissent were on the ball last night. Rabble rouser Cindy Sheehan thought it would be cute to wear a brazenly anti-Bush t-shirt to the SOTU address. Cindy Sheehan finally got her invitation to see President Bush again, but [...]

Florida missionaries ordered out of Venezuela

October 13, 2005

Despite their fervent prayers for deliverance from the hateful edicts of a bunch of natives who obviously don’t know what’s best for themselves, God has allowed Hugo Chavez to oust the proselytizers who seek to foist the wisdom of Jesus as interpreted by a bunch of wealthy white colonialists into the lives of the indigenous [...]

Priorities

September 9, 2005

In times of crisis, our government tends to prioritize the protection of the wealthy – both person and property. Warnings against looting the Wal-Mart are sounded even as thousands suffer and die. Clean, well fed hotel guests are given priority treatment during evacuations, and then weapons are seized, but only from the poor, lest they [...]

Bring it on?

July 7, 2005

London rocked by explosions Wow. That whole strategy of swaggering “bring it on,” and “we’ll draw them to Iraq and fight them there” is really working out, aint it?
