Well, didn’t see this coming: For those of you who follow the news in Central America, you will know that I am in hiding in an undisclosed location in Belize. Hiding out is no fun. I’ve always wondered why people on the run turn themselves in in many cases. I now know the answer - boredom.
Proposed US law makes domestic propaganda legal →
What, we aren’t already getting corporate propaganda? Is anyone confused into thinking Fox is objective, accurate information and not just the media wing of the Republican Party? The new law would give sweeping powers to the State Department and Pentagon to push television, radio, newspaper, and social media onto the U.S. public. “It removes the protection for Americans,” says a...

In the 1980s, the military had its infamous $800 toilet seat. Today, it has a $17,000 drip pan. Thanks to a powerful Kentucky congressman who has steered tens of millions of federal dollars to his district, the Army has bought about $6.5 million worth of the “leakproof” drip pans in the last three years to catch transmission fluid on Black Hawk helicopters. And it might want more from the...
Third party effort packs it in for 2012 →
Hardly unexpected. Third parties need bigger names than ex-minor politicians (like Louisiana governors) to get people excited. I think Bill Barr proved that in the last cycle.
The General Must Have Pineapple →
Great point: About a month ago, I bought a pineapple from Costa Rica at Meijers. It was over 5 pounds and cost something like $1.50. The fruit was lovely. But the price got me thinking about how pineapple has become one of those things in globalization that must be too good to be true. If they can grow, ship to Michigan, and market a 5 pound pineapple to me for just $1.50, then someone–probably...

For the billionth time… I won’t dispute the existence of an Almighty Being but I refuse to believe He is giving Glenn Beck advice on his employment options. Surely something more important is going on.
moron of the week: Ted Nugent
“If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year,” Nugent said, according to a video posted on YouTube by the NRA. “If you can’t go home and get everybody in your lives to clean house in this vile, evil America hated administration, I don’t even know what you’re made out of.” Well,...

it's not the same →
I find myself in the awkward position of defending a politician, but the article seems to say that Cuomo went to state events and then returned with the aircraft to its hangar in Albany. It’s different than Christie taking state aircraft to his son’s baseball games, right? Or am I just stupid for assuming we should just call all politicians equally wasteful of taxpayer money without...
I’ve never understood the idea that you can interpret the Bible literally, unless you read ancient Greek, in which case, good on you. Or Aramaic, or whatever. But God did not dictate the King James version - in my liberal opinion - and therefore claiming infallibility of a translation seems kooky. Therefore I don’t get why Michele Bachman’s crowds boo when reporters ask if she...
