1. 110- Dulles Burns OSS Tag

Someone out there knows why Dulles nails Walker- I don't, but FDR had to have been behind it, and in 1942 Frank was on Burns. Then again, considering this was Allen County, we could think of Gracie Allen and George Burns, says Kitty Carlyle.

How Fox News Is HACKING The Rupert Murdoch Scandal

Again, Rachel Maddow gives an ubiquitous reaction to how Fox News is handling the Rupert Murdoch 'skeleton in the cupboard' scandal. Yes, you guessed it, by first hiding from it and then calling it something other than what it is, (their misleading and deceiving ‘business as usual’) by a misnomer ‘A CASE OF HACKING’...

Inspection- The Kid in the Candy Store

Doesn't have to be a candy store: can be any store. But the child keeps saying they have to have the "candy." And like the center of an Oreo cookie, for some the best part is the center of it all: jerking Mommy's, or Daddy's, chain; making them perform to the little creep's every craven demand.

Democracy is a brick wall, a working class guys analogy...

I look at a brick wall and I see democracy in action. I view it not as a single object, but rather as a series of bricks held together by a common bond. For us to have a functional "wall" there must be cooperation between the bricks or it will collapse under its own weight. If this were to happen, our entire "wall" vanishes and we are left with a pile of bricks and mortar.

Christian Persecution Complex

Do the Christians not know what is a "tyranny of the majority"? Do they not know that democracy is not only majority rule but a majority rule with a protection of minority rights? They both claim to be and admit that they are not "persecuted". I know them well. As exhibited on The Big Picture, they consider themselves persecuted if they are not allowed to persecute others.


I want to thank our Governor, Mark Dayton.

When he stood up to the republicans in our legislature, he did so with courage, heart, soul and the knowledge that what he was doing was for the good of the people of MInnesota; something the republicans will never have.

When he agreed to the 6/30/11 republican proposal, he did so with the same knowledge, and on his terms.

A Capital Idea Part 78: Happiness is Good for Denmark's Economy

ode to Reaganomics/Cantor's creed

Three score and one years ago our keepers brought forth on this continent a new notion, conceived in greed and dedicated to the proposition that some men are created more than equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil debate: testing whether that notion or any notion so conceived and so dedicated can long endure. We are met in a great courtroom of that debate. We have come to dedicate a portion of our time as a token memorial for those who have given and will give their money so that that notion may live. It is altogether fitting

Ahh Yes Colorado!

Where the land is grand and the people are nice.

This is a poem i wrote entitled America Lost

Feed the rich, and starve the poor
ignore poverty, national unrest.
Corrupt officials funding war
greed and power fuel their quest.
