Why Did The Chicken Cross The Road?

Confusing Borders, Boundaries, and the American Comfort Level

From Ohg Rea Tone: People sometimes drift into my personal space.  I generally enjoy people so my personal space does not extend as far as the reach of my arm.  When I shake hands I am likely to pull the other person close, look them in the eye, and measure their sincerity.  The enigma of […]

New Congressional By-laws To Change Government Process

Just about everyone in the United States agrees that there is a problem in Washington, D.

Political Parlor Games and Obama’s Oracle

The Obama Oracle predicts the need for at least 825 BILLION in additional stimulus to the economy. It seems the parlor games are in full swing. The Democrats put some dubious spending in the proposal. Things like re-sodding the lawn on the Washington Mall. The oinking could be heard across the aisle. Too much pork the Republicans cried. Not enough tax cuts was the simple refrain. Obama was listening to the poetry of the Congress. Obama chose to go to Capital Hill himself to meet with Republican leaders (Republican Leader is an official oxy moron).

Ann Coulter – an America Tragedy

Signs, Signs, Everywhere Signs

NEWPORT NEWS, Va.–The McCain campaign makes signs for its crowds, usually simple messages painted in broad strokes with the sort of gritty red and blue paint they give to grade school kids.

Rethinking the Notion of Political Dominance

By John Harwood It would be remarkable, in any year, for a black Democratic candidate for president to be ahead in polls one week before Election Day. Even more remarkable is that it’s happening this year. In 2004, after President Bush won re-election with expanded Republican majorities in Congress, academics, journalists and party strategists wondered […]

Fearists: the new face of terror…

Dad, We need a new term. You approached the idea of terrorism in other forms in a previous post. We need to identify that terrorists use violence, but many use fear and it is almost as destructive.
