Political Satire & Poetry


Look to he with oily hands of black

As this will tell a tale of deception

About Cheney (a political maniac)

Who gutted safety laws…

That governs oil rig inspection


New Immigrants - Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose

When I get a Forward that tries to represent The Truth and is nowhere near it, like this one called NEW IMMIGRANTS that has been circling the Internet since 2006... I can't help but debunk it through facts and maybe get one person, who is silly enough to believe these circulating bags of nonsense, to stop and maybe THINK for a change.

"Plus ca change, plus cest la meme chose."
(The more it changes, the more it’s the same thing.)

A friend of mine who is an attorney received a mass emailing from one of his colleagues. It claims that, because of the Islamic prohibitions of gambling and usury, Muslims are not permitted by their religion to purchase health insurance.

I want accountability

I want accountability for the Bush administration for getting us into an illegal war, warrantless wire tapping, outing a CIA agent and illegal torture. I want accountability for health insurance companies that have blocked the majority of the American people to acquire single payer health care. I want accountability for the to big to fail banks that have used the American people like slot machines and stolen billions from the American people. I want accountability for big oil and it's control of our politicians to stop clean energy and as a result poison our air, water and land.

The two most prominent theories right now are that
