Nunes memo disappointment

February 3, 2018 | 0 Comments

All the media hype over release of the Nunes memo has resulted in nothing but disappointment. FOX News, who claims to be fair and balanced, started the #releasethememo movement to shift the public’s attention from Mueller’s Russia probe and cast shade on America’s intelligence agencies & FISA court that issue surveillance warrants. I’ve watched and listened to FOX News for hours since Republican congressman Nunes released his (partisan) memo and have yet to hear one FOX pundit call for the other half of the memo, the Democrat’s rebuttal.  It’s time now for left-leaning media outlets like MSNBC and HuffPost to keep the #releasethememo movement alive until the Democrat’s memo is also release so that we, the educated, can compare both memos head-to-head and make our own fair and balanced assessment.

Comments on Charlottesville expose R hypocrisy

August 13, 2017 | 0 Comments

It is a sad time in America to be sure and things are likely going to get much worse before better.  Emboldened by the election of a president that was openly backed by ultra right wing Christian extremist and racists, these hate groups have taken to the streets feeling revitalized; knowing that the president and other members of the (R)uling party has their backs.  After all, they accepted their campaign donations, appointed them to positions in the government, and continue to push their policy agendas of bigotry and hate.  That is what makes the statements made by many top Republicans about the terrorist attack in Charlottesville  so hypocritical.

Paul Mango

Amazingly, FOX news has been the channel to watch or listen to on XM/Sirius lately if you actually want to hear news.  CNN has discarded news coverage altogether for non-stop Trump WH coverage.  They’re now what FOX was when Obama was president.  Anyway today on FOX they interviewed a man named Paul Mango that has announced his candidacy for the Pennsylvania governor race.  During the introduction they called him a “healthcare expert” with “vast experience in business and healthcare”.  While I found his answers to some questions adequate, his reply to “what would you do about the opioid epidemic” was beyond ignorant.

Crazy or Fabulous?

Gayness as a religion.  Is this simply the crazy rantings of self-proclaimed internet porn-addicted attorney Chris Sevier or is this something that should be seriously considered?  This week Chris served papers in a DC court claiming that gayness is a religion and, as such, the rainbow flag, a well-known symbol of gayness, should not be allowed to be displayed on government property.  Many of my friends think that Chris, the man who filed legal suites against some states when they wouldn’t let him marry his porn-filled laptop computer, a crackpot.  I, however, think he’s on to something that deserves serious consideration.  Maybe gayness should be deemed a religion and awarded all the benefits that other religions, and their representatives, are given under federal and state law.  Of course there will be some pros and some cons to gayness being declared a religion.

Sessions Update

While the MSM has been playing up the Trump-Russia thing for the past week others in the administration have been doing horrible things that have gotten virtually no coverage.  Of the political stooges that have riled me this week, Jeff Sessions is at the top of the list.  With complete disregard to the principles of Freedom and Liberty, in the past 7 days Sessions has given his blessing for religious zealots to discriminate, affirmed his position on conviction-less asset forfeiture, and doubled down on his anti-weed crusade.

Politifact is more Politopinion

February 7, 2017 | 0 Comments

With all the brew ha ha over “fake news” lately a lot of people have been turning to supposedly nonpartisan sites like Politifact to verify the truthiness of statements made by public figures.  The problem with Politifact is that the stories are written by humans with biases, intended or not.  Those biases can mildly or sometime dramatically slant a rating at which Politifact has 6:  true, mostly true, half true, mostly false, false, and pants on fire.  If you only visit their site every so often you would likely not notice the inconsistencies routinely exhibited and one could easily argue that their use of “context” to justify ratings is warranted.
