Enter Karl Rove—Need One Say More? (tags)
The hate machine, and lie machine, and the money machine is on full blast with intent to kill any chance liberals have standing—especially Obama. The President had better find a fighter within himself because he is being challenged in a awfully big way. Americans are angry across the divide. “Many” republicans are angry as well. They know that Mitt Romney did not truly win the nomination. Rather they well realize he was foisted on the party by the sophisticated propaganda machine, the mainstream media and people like Karl Rove and billionaire donors like Sheldon Adelson. We Americans need to be reminded, again and again, in loud and bold terms, of Karl Rove’s last protégé. Another disaster in the making, with Rove’s knack for choosing people who don’t understand moral ethics, despite rhetoric to the contrary. “Karl Rove Is Back With HIS New Choice*!*!*” ought be the clarion call for today’s Paul Revere. Which brings us to an important question, if lying to the public like a psychopath, were the criteria to judge those who work in the capital who would be left standing? Certainly not Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan?
Do Something Truly Revolutionary (tags)
The world we live in leaves most of us wracked with stress and confusion. It is hard enough getting through the week and making it to the next paycheck with the hopes it will cover all the bills including transportation needs and getting food on the table. Upon closer examination it does seem at times at least some of that stress is avoidable. We can't totally avoid it in our lives, but there's no need to add to it for ourselves, and likewise for others – especially those closest to us.
Real Thoughts on Fake Lives (tags)
I wondered about those who intentionally live someone else’s life and headed to the 2012 Celebrity Impersonator Convention and Awards in Las Vegas. I wanted to know how “Sean Connery” and “Johnny Cash” felt about being Sean Connery and Johnny Cash. Could they retain a sense of self while playing 007 or a boy named Sue?

"There is a beautiful fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen where the devil builds a mirror that distorts everything beautiful and good into nothing. The most glorious countrysides appear like boiled spinach, the best persons are repulsive or without torsos.."
Moral victoriana en el gabinete presidencial (tags)
Se cuenta que Hoover sobrevivió a la gestión de siete presidentes, que no pudieron destituirlo por el costo político que les implicaba, y sobre todo por los chantajes que realizaba en base a detalles de la vida sexual de los mismos.

"Shrimper" Environmental Activist Speaks in San Diego (tags)
diane Wilson, who went from being a painfully shy Texas shrimp fisher to a nationally known environmental activist, presented her story in San Diego at a meeting sponsored by the Peace and Democracy Action Group of the First Unitarian-Universalist Church. Her inspiring story is also available in her book, "An Unreasonable Woman."
Heath Ledger and “Legal” Drugs (tags)
The late Heath Ledger has been compared tto James Dean, but the real prematurely deceased celebrities he should be listed with are Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland and Elvis Presley — all heavy prescription drug abusers who thought that, because their drugs came from doctors and drug companies instead of street pushers, they somehow woudln't be as dangerous as illegal "recreational" drugs. Hopefully Ledger's death will awaken people to the dangers of pharmaceutical drugs and the drug-company strategies that get people hooked on them.
Scandal in the Porn Industry - A summary (tags)
Now everyone be very very quiet...
The BIG BIG Porno Scandal (tags)
Some of you might be aware of the big scandal currently rocking the porn industry, but since the media has decided that this is one scandal they don't want to touch, since it would piss off the multinational corporations, some of you may not be aware of the significance of this scandal, or why it would be kept on some back burner instead of becoming the latest lurid scandal served on a platter by a typically scandal mongering media system.
Don Imus vs. Rap Music Debate Continued: (tags)
Randi Rhodes of Air America is still wrong when she claims that “the” issue (insisting there is only one issue) is no more than white people blaming rap music for words like “ho” when used in the derogatory sense. Don Imus question: “What about rap music?” is a legitimate question—even if “pseudo-liberals” (real liberals consider fairly all relevant points of view before getting judgmental) are quick to dismiss it. In fact dogmatic certitude that there is “one” significant way (my way or the highway) to interpret the debate is itself a red flag.
Welcome to the Hotel California (tags)
The New World Order of God has been replaced by the New World Order of Lucifer. Have you noticed your place in the scheme of things has been shrinking a bit? Do you feel a little cramped and closed in? Do you feel a little like Luke Skywalker and Han Solo, and the princess in the garbage compactor?
Hunter Thompson, Bush, and Jeff Gannon and much more... (tags)
If the secrets lie with Thompson, he is no longer able to talk about it. Now, there will have to be some gonzo guerilla journalists to pick up where Thompson left off.
Bush and Kerry kin (tags)
Genealogists call Bush and Kerry kin. Big Isle researchers claim the president and his top opponent are distant cousins.
KARL MARX THE RUGBY PLAYER! (tags)
Ah the web... vast and infinite. This debacle is the PERFECT example of how one must NEVER take at face value a news story, no matter where it's presented. Multiple sources, fact checking, and a healthy degree of suspicion are necessary to understand the news.
