Reading American Workers Their Rights

Workers Rights

With the news that Boeing will be shedding 1500 IT jobs in the Puget Sound area through layoffs, attrition and jobs being shifted to Missouri & South Carolina – “right to work states” mind you – I felt like it was necessary to read American workers their rights. These rights are very similar to the […]

GOP Shark Jump

Have you seen the latest Republican “strategist” saying something so idiotic you have to check to see if even he believes the idiocy flowing from his own mouth?   In case you missed it, Republican “strategist” Jack Burkman, in an interview on Current TV, actually said that the Benghazi attacks were WORSE than 9/11 because […]

NFL Football

I was watching the coverage of the first round of the NFL draft which began with an interview between ESPN’s Chris Berman and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Gay Marriage… A “Taxing” Problem?

Gay Marriage - Equality- Gay Rights

Leave it to a GOP Senator to try and connect marriage equality with a “flat tax” which benefits the wealthy at the expense of middle & lower income citizens. Leave it to them to try and get even more tax breaks for the wealthiest while trying to sound as if they’re relenting on an issue […]

Not by a Longshot!

Iraq War - Reflecting on the War 10 Years Later

It was asked by another radio guy I know on Facebook: It has been 10 years since the Iraq war began, was it worth it? First off let’s all be honest Saddam had NO WMD, NO connection to Al Qaeda, he was secular and they are religious fanatics. He never tried to impose a “Jihad”, […]

That’s an easy but erroneous assertion, […]

Steubenville = Stupidville

Steubenville Court Case - Steubenville Rape Trial

In the aftermath of the Steubenville rape case and the subsequent guilty verdicts of the football players involved I felt the need to speak up as it seems like the victim in this case is receiving unjust criticism and the usual tactic of blaming the victim. Let’s look at CNN’s coverage of the guilty verdict… […]

And we don’t have to buy bumper stickers that say : “Save the Post Office” or walk around with pickets in support of our local post office and supporting […]
