Fair and Unbalanced

February 3rd, 2011 · Comments Off on Fair and Unbalanced · Capitalism, Culture, Politics

People want us to be fair and impartial. Not seeing conspiracies behind every voting booth. So perhaps we can attempt to be fair and yet firm. That’s what we’ll be from now on. We’ll let the videos show you how preposterous are some of the statements by the talking heads. If you are perceptive, as […]

Neocon Propaganda Kills 6 and Wounds 12 More

January 9th, 2011 · Comments Off on Neocon Propaganda Kills 6 and Wounds 12 More · Politics

So we have another Right-Wing-sponsored murder. Congresswoman Gaby Giffords Kelly was shot through the head, and six other people were murdered, including a nine-year-old girl and a universally esteemed Republican Judge. Oh, no…not so quick, Neocons say. It was not caused by Right Wing Republican propaganda. It was only a person who was anti-government. Well, […]

The Truth About George Soros…And Other Matters

October 23rd, 2010 · Comments Off on The Truth About George Soros…And Other Matters · Corporations and Industry, Lobbying, Media, Politics

George Soros is in the news these days because, in 2004, he bankrolled a considerable part of the effort to contain the horrendous, near-cataclysmic Bush Republican agenda of free-lance war and devastation and American money markets run amok. And because he has continued to financially support other causes regarding freedom of speech and truth in […]

Glenn Beck Attacks Unions

October 9th, 2010 · 2 Comments · Capitalism, Economics, jobs, Labor, Media, Politics, taxes

Glenn Beck, the supposedly middle class hero, turns out to be a hollowed out Tin Man. Lately, we noticed that this self-style man of the people likes to attack unions, who are merely organizations of people…not hugely wealthy individuals or giant corporations…who assemble together to get good wages for the hard work that they perform. […]

Glenn Beck: Clown Prince of Propaganda

October 2nd, 2010 · 3 Comments · Corporations and Industry, Culture, Media, Politics

There is always a question whether or not to give any kind of attention to the show-off–the kid who acts out in class because he doesn’t get enough attention at home. The kid whom everyone shuns either withdraws into his shell or becomes the one who disrupts things for others. Not necessarily the funny kid, […]

The Grand Illusion, Part II

September 1st, 2010 · Comments Off on The Grand Illusion, Part II · Corporations and Industry, Lobbying, Media, Politics, taxes

Part II — Who is telling all those lies…and why? They met on the mall in Washington, that renowned place for great assemblies. They were baby-boomers and beyond and overwhelmingly white. (Maybe when you call a Liberal African-American President, raised by white grandparents a ‘racist” as Glenn Beck did, you may turn away people of […]

The Grand Illusion

August 30th, 2010 · Comments Off on The Grand Illusion · Corporations and Industry, Culture, Lobbying, Media, Politics

Part I – Looming disaster and how we got here The Tea Party Movement is neither a movement nor has it anything to do with the traditions of freedom represented by the American Revolution. It is in fact, ironically, about the impulse of an uneducated and badly led society to permit the restriction of its […]

Restoring Honor? How About Restoring Sanity?

August 28th, 2010 · Comments Off on Restoring Honor? How About Restoring Sanity? · Corporations and Industry, Culture, Media, Politics, Wall Street

It is probably not a good idea to give any publicity to this inane plan of Glenn Beck’s to hold a “Restoring Honor” meeting at the Washington Mall but it is an appropriate starting point. Glenn Beck is probably the most vocal and radical–some, many, say crazy–commentator on the Obama Administration’s policies. He literally has […]

Lies and Misunderstandings

May 28th, 2010 · Comments Off on Lies and Misunderstandings · Corporations and Industry, Entertainment, Media, Politics, Populism

When are we going to grow up as a nation? We have an entire media spectrum…that is, all the radio stations and all the television stations and channels and podcasts and people blathering on street corners and in coffee shops….and there is no substance, no facts and very little concern for the truth. Just stop […]

Sarah in Wonderland with the Mad Hatter

May 25th, 2010 · Comments Off on Sarah in Wonderland with the Mad Hatter · Corporations and Industry, Media, Politics

They’re called Neoconservatives. Some of them on the far Right are called tea baggers or members of the “Tea Party.” Before we get started, let’s remember what the Tea Party is. This is a group of Mad Hatters, wildly scampering about the landscape of the country, willy-nilly, without a clue as to what is really […]

Beck at CPAC: Libertarian…maybe; Populist…definitely not!

February 21st, 2010 · Comments Off on Beck at CPAC: Libertarian…maybe; Populist…definitely not! · Politics

Glenn Beck made a splendid keynote speech at the CPAC Conference. He was in rare form as are many speakers with great imagination who place no importance on the veracity of their words. He did, however, do something unusual and to some probably dramatic, although not impressive to those who have beaten addictions. It is […]
