“Replacement-Gate”: Wisconsin Fights Back

The big story in the news today has nothing to do with politics.  Well, almost nothing, but we’ll get to that in a minute.  The big story today is the ending to last night’s NFL game between the Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers.  Seattle won the game, 14-12, but there’s considerable controversy as to […]

If You Are Reading This, You Are Lazy

This has been a terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad week for Mitt Romney.  Last week, around this time, he jumped the gun on the embassy attacks in the Middle East, releasing a statement attacking President Obama for supposedly apologizing – even as the US consulate in Benghazi was under attack.  So far, he appears to […]

BREAKING: NHL Loses Keys, No Season Allowed

Your humble blogger is back after a somewhat prolonged absence. I’m going to have to ask for another somewhat prolonged absence. Why?  Well, I’m in mourning.  And not because of anything political, mind you – in fact, this is the first non-political post I’ve ever done.  It feels very weird, but I just need to […]

Obama Gets A Boost! (And his poll numbers go up too!)

When Entitlements Attack!

Oh, great.  Here we go again: It didn’t take long for the Internet to start buzzing with conspiracy theories after the Social Security Administration posted a notice that it was purchasing 174,000 hollow-point bullets. Why is the agency that provides benefits to retirees, disabled workers, widows and children stockpiling ammunition? Whom are they going to […]

The Other Way To “Go Green”

Despite the fact that President Obama admitted to smoking marijuana as a high schooler, he has made it clear that the government has no plans to legalize it.  Not everyone is groovy with that, but even if he wasn’t dealing with a do-nothing Congress, legalizing pot would most definitely not be easy. Still, a lot […]
