Obama and Trayvon

I was going to sit this one out. Truly. I was perfectly contented live tweeting the verdict and the aftermath. Everybody has an opinion on the George Zimmerman trial, so why add yet another? I was going to let this one go, until yesterday, when the President weighed in on the...

An Irritation Deep i...

I just read the best news of the day: After the nonsense of two weeks prior, the Texas House of Representatives passed its bill banning abortion. This is the same bill that was infamously filibustered by Senator Wendy Davis when it was first introduced in the Senate as Texas SB 5. It’s...

A President, a Hipst...

Planned Parenthood of America (PPA) is hosting its annual Time for Care gala dinner tonight. Initially, PPA announced that President Obama was going to deliver the keynote speech- quelle surprise! In case you didn’t know, Obama is a staunch supporter of all things Planned Parenthood....

The Fat about Combat...

I’m not sure what happened to civilization in the past decade. OK, that was a loaded opener. A lot has happened. What I mean is that I don’t know when obesity became a big problem, or when it became a trendy condition against which to combat. Perhaps it had to do with the Oprah...

A Perversion of the ...

On Inauguration Monday, I happend to tune into satellite radio just as Obama was starting his speech. I think I managed to survive the first two minutes before I felt a large knot in my stomach. You see, the day after the public inauguration festivities marked the 40th anniversary of Roe vs....

NRA vs. Obama

Gun control has been the topic du jour since the awful massacre at the Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut. Politicians, columnists, media personalities are all clamouring for their five minutes to reverberate their position on the matter. This is nothing new. Every time...

The Mourning After

I haven’t been able to post since the election last week. There is so much to say, yet at the same time I feel like nothing can be said. It’s as if I’ve attended a funeral and have been mourning this past week. The funeral was for America. I don’t know- perhaps...

Digital hanging chad...

This is a very nerve-racking point during the US election. All the of the polls are showing a very tight race, the result could go wither way. But only one poll really matters- the ballot box result!But the ballot box may soon be extinct. Many states are ditching them and opting for easy to...

My first time with O...

“Before I was a girl, now I was a woman. I pulled back the curtain, I voted for Barack Obama.” Have you seen the new TV ad Hollywood made for Barack Obama? It features Lena Dunham and her monologue on how she lost her voting virginity to Obama. Ugh…I think I slightly puked...

Crazy Joe: There He ...

Ok. So I have a love/loathe relationship with Vice President Biden. I loathe the guy because frankly he’s full of “Malarkey”. And I love the guy because he’s full of “Stuff”. Everytime he opens his pie hole, he says something made up, proving he is a...

In election time, I’m always amused to see which Hollywood celebs come out in support of which candidate. This year being an election year, I’ve been plenty amused. I’ve had many “LOL” moments, and I’ve suffered a lot of second hand embarrassment. I’m...
