Turn Her OFF - Please!

Simply put:
Sara Palin will NOT shut up until YOU shut her up
Please do not buy her books, watch her shows, or take an interest in her unfortunate, irrelevant children.

Engage instead, her hypocritical, inane arguments, and policies, with rational intelligent debate.

For instance
Governor Palin was in favor of, and implemented laws to encourage, the systematic hunting, slaughtering and eradication of Alaskan wildlife, such as Grizzly Bear and Wolves.

TV host Palin would like you to travel to Alaska and participate in "Bear watches", and "Wolf watches" while you appreciate the wonderful wildlife of the Alaskan wilderness.

Just which animals are we supposed to watch?
The ones being hunted to extinction by public policy in the wild, or the carcases of the poisened, slaughtered, and mutillated animals, taken for bounty...

Start to Finish

Michael Vick the self styled sadist and executioner of dogs is now the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles.
And so I am now finished with professional football

NFL = DEAD to me

I will not watch, endorse or even think about another game played in this league
I will make a point not to purchase from companies that advertise there

If Hitler himself was alive today, and if he could run and catch a ball, I am sure he would have a fine and prosperous career waiting for him in the NFL

Killers and criminals playing a game for millions of dollars, for our entertainment.
Well I am not entertained - I am disgusted beyond belief
Shame on you, shame on you all

About that Islamic Center...

Why would Americans abandon the Bill of Rights and the founding sentiments of this nation?
After much agonizing thought, I begin to see the rational of those opposed.
It comes down to this:
If we prevent the building of this cultural center, the terrorists and sleeper cells alike will have NO PLACE to plot against us – thus America will be safe forever
GENIUS!!!
Also there is the added plus of showing them WHO IS BOSS, thus eliminating any cultural friction or hard feelings.

If this sounds silly to you, please take a moment to reflect.
The opposition’s paranoia is amusing at one level.
But at the base level it is frightening, disgusting, nauseating…

These people have been waiting for an issue like this to provide a cloak for their unfettered bigotry.
They want to escalate the issue and bring some kind of holy war to the streets of my beloved melting pot, NYC.

And for WHAT?
So we can reenact the ridiculous savage nonsense that is playing itself out in Jerusalem and other “sacred” places in the middle east?

This is not only stupid, it is decidedly UN American.

Let us demonstrate to the world why they should still respect our love of freedom and our sense of Democracy.
Let us show tolerance, and respect, to our fellow New Yorkers.
Let us trade paranoia for trust
Let us invest in our future, our health and our safety
Let us reach out to the part of the Islamic world that denounces terrorism
Let us remember what it is the pilgrims came here for, and what our soldiers have fought and died for.
Let us not destroy the American Ideal with fear and hate
Let us remember what it says in the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights

They LIED to you on EARTH DAY

Both Obama &McCain had reservations over offshore drilling during the early campaign. Both supported restrictions on the activity
But then Sara Palin swiveled her hips, winked at the camera and chanted "drill baby drill!" and Americans, who have a strange quasi sexual obsession over this woman, lined up behind her. (Figuratively)
It's not exactly clear whether they wanted to drill for oil or have hard sex with the vice presidential candidate.
But both Obama and McCain saw the color of the ink and both flip flopped on the issue

And now we have it
Both candidates fears come true
An oil platform has exploded in the Gulf
Men are dead more are missing, presumed dead.
Oil can now be clearly seen, leaking from the well- while the well owners and the industry spent millions of dollars, not to clean up the mess, but to deal with the PR disaster
And to patiently, patently lie to us about the leakage...

The COAST GUARD discovers the leak - not the EXPERT oilmen who own operate and lease the well & the rig

Not the people who ask me to trust them and bend my politics to service their need to make big profits
Not the people who Had to know the well was leaking and lied to me about it only yesterday

Earth Day

Poor Way To Advertise


Hmmmm

I am simply going to ask a question:

We socialize our police protection
Our fire protection
And to some extent our schools
Acknowledging a common good.

So why not healthcare?

Imagine your home is burning down and you call the fire department
And they reply
"Yes I understand it is an emergency, but I first need to ask you, what is your co pay? will you be paying that in full today?"

Or

"I'm sorry, it seems you are not covered for electrical fires"
