Religion and Politics Monday

  Today we did what you're not supposed to do in polite company: talk religion and politics. Then again, I never said we were polite around here. We began with religion, courtesy of Bill Maher, Sam Harris and Ben Affleck  with a little Michael Steele and Nicholas Krisof thrown in for good sense ...   Although I agree with most of what Affleck said, he needs to learn to shut up once in a while and let others speak. Religious scholar Reza Aslan took issue with Maher's prior Islamophobic rants... Although Upworthy cited lots of sources that back up Azlan's [...]

When We Don’t Learn From Our Mistakes…

... we tend to repeat them. Last night, President Obama told the American people that we learned nothing from the Cheney-Bush-Rumsfeld-Rice-Powell debacle that was our last invasion of Iraq.

Of course, this has led me to a few days of reflecting on the dogs in my life, and how much they've all meant to me.  More coming on that eventually. In the meantime, we're keeping Pooh as comfortable as possible, watching her for guidance on what to do next... I was joined in the first [...]

It’s a Mad World

The Wisconsin State Senate breaks laws to break the unions and the US House of Representatives goes on an Islamic witch hunt. It's a mad world. A few tweets that underscore my point: "The Republican Party has come for my job, my union, my wife's uterus, my art and my radio station." FL is in trouble. We'll be a Mariana Island dotted with sweatshops & tent revivals b4 Rick Scott & Company are done. Per union leader Ed Sadlowski "Cops just dragged out a 15 year old girl from Assembly Chamber. She is totally distraught." Gov. Walker reminds you that [...]
