Does George F. Will Write Like a Weasel (tags)

Recently George Will wrote a column as to whom Mitt Romney might choose as his Vice President. Within the context of exaggerated hyperbole Will proposes Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan or Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal. Thus this aging crank spent more time with blatant labeling of Obama (and the “entitlement state”) rather than making much of a case for either of his choices. If cartoonist and author Scott Adams wrote a book on politicians then George Will’s writing could easily inspire several chapters. What blowhard has written with more insinuation, illusion of logic, confusing sophistry, guilt by association, and whimsical vagary than this pretense of intellectual firepower? His political biases are almost always more prevalent than an ability to write clear and rational arguments.

The labor movement brought you the weekend. Thomas Friedman wants to take it away.

Conflicted on the vets (tags)

There is an inherent conflict in writing a weekly opinion column, as I have done for the last 20 years, and in being an elected public official in San Francisco, as I have been for the last 17 years. It is an occupational hazard that from time to time, I have expressed opinions which offended certain individuals who happen to be San Francisco voters. Most recently I wrote two columns about the need for the Filipino community to express our unequivocal support for the Filipino veterans equity bill, S.1315, which passed the U.S. Senate 96-1 on April 24, 2008, and which is currently pending in the U.S. House of Representatives.

"WE ARE FARMERS, NOT GARDENERS" (tags)

To say that we are gente de maiz – people of maize -- is to say that we are one: the people, the land and the maize (chile, frijol & nopal, too) are all one.

Enmity=Money X Change2 (tags)

I always liked the way Einstein said it: “In my opinion, only two things are infinite. The universe and human stupidity, but I’m not sure about the first.”

LA Times Dumps Liberal Columnist (tags)

Los Angeles Times columnist Robert Scheer was fired on November 11 after nearly 30 years at the paper, the last 13 as one of its most progressive political columnists. In a published statement announcing op-ed page changes (11/10/05), the Times insisted that it is dedicated to "provid[ing] readers with a wide range of voices and perspectives," but in dumping Scheer, the paper has gotten rid of one of the few prominent progressive columnists in the country.

Readers to Protest Dropping of Scheer Column Tuesday at 'LA Times' (tags)

Los Angeles Times readers upset with the dropping of Robert Scheer's column plan to picket outside the newspaper's building Tuesday at noon. "We think he was fired totally for political reasons," Karen Pomer, a media activist who helped organize the demonstration, told E&P Monday. "Now they don't have anyone who covers national issues in the same way. The Times needs a full spectrum of voices. It's becoming insipid."

When Are Nazi Comparisons Deplorable? (tags)

Bush supports object to MoveOn.com's Hitler ad, yet Rush Limbaugh routinely calls women's rights advocates "femi-Nazis" and the NY Post ran a column describing Howard Dean as a Josef Goebbels follower.

ON THE USE OF THERMITE TO MELT SECTIONS OF THE WTC CORE COLUMNS. (tags)

Anomalies involving the collapse of WTC buildings on 9-11 are discussed from the perspective of possible controlled demolition implosion rather than of aircraft impact and fuel-fire damage.
