Embrace Class Warfare

October 20, 2011

My occasional resort to language of a somewhat bombastic flavor may lead some to believe that I generally take an aggressive stance on practically every issue. That’s not necessarily so, but in the matter of class war, I am a super hawk. Oh, am I not being divisive? No. It’s several generations too late for […]

Not A Fan Of Ceilings

June 25, 2011

I am not a fan of ceilings. Well, at home is good. Maybe in most any building. But that’s not the kind that we have as the subject today. We’re talking about the debt ceiling of the federal government. It’s possible one or two people may not be as familiar with this issue as they […]

I’m Special

November 1, 2010

Did your mommy tell you that you are special? Of course you realize she may have been biased. You cannot look anywhere without seeing the results of the behavior of people who think they are special. The guy(s) who cut you off on the freeway this morning; the student who filmed his roommate’s private encounter; […]

Class Warfare

October 15, 2010

Yes, class warfare has been waged against those of the middle class and the poor for decades. No, the middle class and poor have not been fighting back, at least not yet. I am suggesting a new and different strategy for at least the first significant counterattack. The plutocrats have handed us the weapon we […]

All Over The Map

May 7, 2010

This section of the globe could be to show that we are a long way from the population center of the Earth. Or, it could be showing those places that don’t care who wins the Stanley Cup (oops, I left out Nashville) or the NBA Championship, or whether Senator Nelson is looking out for Warren […]

Good Taxes

March 29, 2010

Yeah, I know. There isn’t such a thing as a good tax. Well, maybe there is. Let’s think about it for a moment. As illustrated by the graphic, Wall Street got a huge tax break. Actually, they got a lot of our tax money. That in addition to several reams of tax breaks, subsidies and […]

If you stay to the end of this post, you will see an offer you can’t refuse – no strings attached. My last post was about a health issue, not healthcare reform. Writing so frequently on healthcare reform and the economy has built up a tremendous reserve of frustration. I wanted to take a psychic […]

Which Way?

February 10, 2010

Today, speaking of the bonuses, Obama says, “I, like most of the American people, don’t begrudge people success or wealth. That is part of the free-market system.” Not that long ago he was calling those bonuses obscene and shameful. Which is it? Larry Summers was in full support of anything that the Wall Street casinos […]

Supreme Stupidity

January 25, 2010

Despite what some may think, I was not around for the Dred Scott decision. That aside, I had comforted myself that the Supremes could not make a worse ruling than the one that gave us Bush the lesser. I was wrong, horribly so. We are now the only developed country in the world that allows […]

Doing God’s Work

November 25, 2009

The CEO of Goldman Sachs, Lloyd Blankfein, claims that he is doing God’s work. Has God retired? Is God not upset with Lloyd for causing his 401K to tank? Wouldn’t you like to get a peek at God’s portfolio? Such gems of wisdom from one of the Masters of the Universe generates lots of questions. […]
