Inspection- Rude

Have you had trouble in social situations: family, so called “friends:” people being outright rude and nasty when it comes to differences we have? Well, this week’s Inspection may be a personal note… to whom I’d rather not say, other than “a relative.” But I’m guessing you might want to read it anyway. I suspect, no matter what your opinions, you may have been in a similar situation.

Target "Ground Zero" for the Ground Zero Mosque...

So, what is the goal...or better yet, what or WHO is the target of the latest FABRICATED FLAP over the emotional roller coaster ride that corporate media has taken us on for the last few weeks surrounding the dust-up at the Ground Zero Muslim Mosque?

Dr. Samuel Johnson

Hi. I enjoy the program very much but I just wanted to set you straight about something that was said during the Fri. Aug 27 program. Yes, the famous quotation is from English lexicographer Dr. Samuel Johnson, but (according to Wilipedia) it was directed towards an English rival.

I'm sorry I couldn't post it sooner...mainly because the "usual", (health), but also because my main computer has been hijacked, literally, by some scareware. ((One that seems to be almost impossible to kill-one more day of trying & I MAY have to cave in to losing all my valuable stuff on my system I'd JUST re-downloaded in anticipation of switching to a new back-up, Carbonite. <sigh>) sorry, got off-track, just a bit stressed over it.

"Cry Of The Loon!"

I am so appalled that anyone would disrespect an important day in our history with this return to racism. I drew this cartoon about Beck a while ago, it seems appropriate to bring it out again.

Extension of Tax Cuts for Top 3% or BAILOUTS FOR TOP 3%

We just need to start framing issues as the GOP do. So ..... let's get to work on the media, the White House and Congress.

Listening to Bernie - DEATH TAX or BAILOUT for rich brats.

stop calling it the "Ground Zero Mosque"

The title kind of says it all. But progressives have got to stop calling the community center in New York "The Ground Zero Mosque."

It's not at "ground zero."

It's not a mosque.

Re-WEDGING a Wedge Issue...the future gay vote is up for grabs...

The first and most powerful credential supporting my somewhat sobering message here is that its now very clear the the Republicans are executing a well conceived plan to attract future gay votes...and have been doing so for quite some time now.

Why the Kochs Really Embraced Criminal Justice Reform...

It looks like the Koch brothers have scammed us once again.

When news first came out that Charles and David Koch -- the Koch brothers -- were supporting criminal justice reform efforts in Congress, many of us thought, "Wow, they're actually doing something good for once."

And for good reason, too.
