Truth & justice…for just us

Oh, this is a fun one.  The new Superman movie came out this week, and people are saying all kinds of things about this new, re-imagined superhero.  They're saying he's boring, that he's gay, that he's too brooding, etc.  But here's a new one: some are complaining that Superman isn't portrayed as American anymore, because...

Go George!

The Guardian has a short interview with George Clooney about his latest films which attack corruption in government.  The following quote really grabbed me: "I was at a party the other night and it was all these hardcore Republicans and these guys are like, 'Why do you hate your country?'  I said, 'I love my...

We don’t need no education…

Today I received a spam petition with a long list of names attached, asking me to help save the country from certain destruction because the Pledge of Allegiance is not being enforced in all of America's schools: Subject: Pledge Petition Begin forwarded message: PLEASE PROTECT THIS MESSAGE AS IT CONTAINS THE SIGNATURES OF MANY PERSONS...

God’s pledge

Conrad Zaar dropped me a line regarding the recent ruling by a federal judge calling the Pledge of Allegiance unconstitutional:  "Hey, here's a bit of good news from San Francisco regarding the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools. With luck, Lawrence Karlton's ruling will get the issue before the Supreme Court again." ... Continue Reading →

Terrorists strike Florida!

So two teens supposedly burned some flags in Florida the other day.  Great, that's just what we need right now: a couple of nitwits pretending to be "anarchists" so they can get on the evening news.  This is just the kind of thing the Bushies need to say "See?  See??  We need an amendment to...

Flogging the flag

In another absurd act of hyperpatriotism, lawmakers are still clamoring to pass a Protect the Flag Against Burning and Desecration and Stuff Amendment. WASHINGTON — The Senate may be within one or two votes of passing a constitutional amendment to ban desecration of the U.S. flag, clearing the way for ratification by the states, a...

Hairy rockin’ patriots UNITE!

Oh my GOD.  This is possibly the worst patriotic anthem ever...although I still haven't heard Ted Nugent's song "Stand" yet.  Prepare yourself for...America We Stand As One!!  Notice the cover of the CD single:  a hairy rocker-dude standing on the peak of a mountain, much like Mustafa the Lion King, with the light of (Christian)...
