Make 'Merica Great
Author: velveeta jones    Date: 09/20/2015 15:10:10

Yes, America has endured so much suffering these last 7 1/2 years. Don't we all want to go back to a time when bodies were shipped back from an illegal war daily? Back when good jobs were rare and health insurance was a luxury item? Remember the good ol' days when America was great and you could escape to a Super Dome with no running water or electricity after flood waters from a devastating hurricane invaded your neighborhood and killed your family, friends and pets? Back to a time when buildings stood tall and proud until knocked over by planes and flames - despite being warned about that being a possibility. Let's go back!

No news is No news.

Good Morning.

I've spent most of the week blissfully unawares of the goings-on at the national level.

I knew it would be a comedian that would sum up 3 hours of nothing.

Yes, We Can't (even)
Author: Raine    Date: 09/17/2015 13:12:50

Yes, we watched the 'debate' last night. I made an early prediction stating that the most substantial portion of the evening would be the Junior Varsity team that consisted of Governor Bobby Jindal, Senator Lyndsey Graham, Former Governor George Pataki and former Senator Rick Santorum.

The Inevitable Iran Deal
Author: BobR    Date: 09/16/2015 13:13:37

Over the years, the Republicans have likened President Obama to a "dictator" or "tyrant". Why? Because despite all their protestations and machinations to prevent him from accomplishing his goals, he has managed to use the laws currently in place to find an avenue for progress. The anguish of impotence within the Republican-led Congress is palpable. They can't seem to understand why their pernicious tactics never seem to work.

Such is the case with the nuclear deal that we negotiated with Iran and several other countries. Because it didn't involve forcing Iran to cry "Uncle!", they consider it a bad deal. They've preached dire warnings, and demanded a "better" deal, with nary a clue as to what that means nor how to accomplish it. It's political theater at its worst.

The House has already had a non-binding (ie: toothless, ineffectual, worthless) vote on a resolution condemning the deal. It's all preemptive fodder for upcoming re-election campaigns, and - like the votes to repeal the ACA - a waste of time and taxpayer dollars, when there's a budget funding bill that requires their attention.

Good Morning. Sorry for the delay.

Today is our 453rd day back in Iraq.

There have been no new American casualties.

We find this morning's Cost of War passing through:

$ 1, 639, 364, 700, 000 .00

Rick is Out?

Well, I was going to feature him on today's blog. I was sure we'd have a President Perry. But no?

False Patriotism
Author: TriSec    Date: 09/12/2015 12:39:30

You can unwrap yourselves from the flag now.

So here we are on another September 12, pondering what could have been. I swore to myself that I wouldn't write about September 11th this year, but nevertheless...here I am.

I want you to think about "National Psyche" for a minute, and what that might mean to you. At one time or another, I think we've all written about most of these things I'm going to mention.

In each generation of Americans, there seems to be that one, seminal event that is remembered for the rest of your life, no matter where you are or what you were doing.

Ugh, my Facebook timeline is all Kim Davis or 9/11 stuff. I'm sorry, maybe its callous of me but I'm tired of treating this date as a yearly funeral. We have all grown since then, well, a good chunk of us has that is.

So instead of the typical pictures of American flags, the Towers, fireman and all those other overly patriotic things lets have some that are more joyful or funny. (I'm going with funny )
