Good Morning, on this SOTU morn.

We'll start by taking a look at how the GOP is taking care of our vets this week. That's right - by passing bills that favor corporate America, of course. Perhaps you've seen the ocassional commercial about mesothelioma and the class-action lawsuits against the old asbestos industry? There were some certain industries, and in particular, US Navy veterans, that are particularly hard-hit by the generally fatal disease. So Congress has made it more difficult to sue.

Three Year Muse

Good evening.

So today is my anniversary.

On January 10, 2013, I walked into Mt. Auburn Hospital, handed them back my infusion pump, and walked out a free man. It was my last chemotherapy treatment, and three years on, I remain cancer-free.

And so did Obama! Of course he used an "onion under the podium" to make those tears. And according to chronic lip-licker Marco Rubio he didn't shed tears for Paris, San Bernardino or James Foley's beheading.

Why can't our President be more MANLY like those FOX news women who admit they don't cry over murdered children, and instead get shit done? What a wimp Obama is.

2016 - or, I am experiencing nIb'poH.
Author: TriSec    Date: 01/09/2016 13:28:44

nIb'poH - the feeling I have done this before.

I don't expect many of you speak Klingon; I myself know only a few words out-of-context, and not enough to string together a complete sentence.

I'm only posting some headlines today, all from Google News. No links; you can do this exercise yourself.

I wonder where exactly this mote of dust is headed this year?

By now we all are aware of what is going on in Oregon. The Bundy Bunch is indicating this morning that it may be near an end.

The Ugly American
Author: BobR    Date: 01/06/2016 13:52:17

Historically, the term "Ugly American" has been used to describe the American tourist abroad. We have a reputation for being self-centered, loud, inconsiderate and ignorant of cultural norms and customs, and generally tacky overall. In a lot of cases, that description is valid - a bull in a china shop, as it were. What's disturbing is that here at home there is a growing subset of Americans who revel in being inappropriate, offensive, and mean-spirited. Where we once were a nation of intellectual growth, ruled by statesmen, we have become "Idiocracy". We don't have a TV show called "Ouch - My Balls!" - yet - but there are plenty of videos on YouTube that meet that low standard.

Nothing seems to bring out the ugly like guns and race. Ever since President Obama was elected, there has been a concerted (ineffective) effort to prevent him successes and nullify (unsuccessfully) his triumphs. There was an immediate cry of "Obama wants to take your guns", and the stupid paranoid selfish American subculture swallowed it hook, line, and sinker. This has gone on for seven years, with attempts to quell any discussion of common-sense gun regulation after every bloody shooting spree, regardless of how awful.

Good Morning.

It's 2016...but the more the calendar changes, the more things stay the same on the Veteran's Front. We'll visit with our old friends at IAVA this morning, and this disturbing story about veteran suicides:

Y'All Kayda!

In today's news, White guys with guns still occupy a federal building in Oregon.

Pretty sure they aren't Muslim or Syrian refugees. Pretty sure they are just a bunch of good old boys who hate our government.
