Don't Tell

By The Reverend Published: May 31, 2010

Don't tell us what to do.

That's what U.S. military leadership is telling the U.S. House of Representatives in light of the House's recent vote to end the discriminatory policy of "don't ask, don't tell."

Completely Free To Discriminate

By The Reverend Published: May 25, 2010

Over the last couple of days I've heard Tea Party conservatives, like Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC), criticize MSNBC's Rachel Maddow and others for not being fair to GOP Tea Party Senate candidate, Rand Paul, in the questions they've been asking him recently.

The most bizarre line of defense that I've heard, however, has been....."Rand Paul said he would have voted for the 1964 Civil Rights Act, that settles the issue of whether Paul, himself, supports racial discrimination."

2 Year "Study" Needed

By The Reverend Published: May 21, 2010

Arkansas Democratic Senator Blanche Lincoln knew she was in a tough primary fight from her left in the person of Bill Halter. Progressives had become fed up with Lincoln's corporate-favoring ways and helped Halter become a viable competitor. In the Arkansas primary on Tuesday, Halter successfully forced Lincoln into a special Democratic runoff election the first week of June. Today, Halter leads Lincoln by a couple polling points in the lead up to the special runoff election.

What I found interesting during this Lincoln-Halter battle was Blanche Lincoln's introduction of a derivatives regulation amendment to the just-passed financial regulation legislation. It just didn't, you know, feel right at the time.

Rand Paul & The Civil Rights Act

By The Reverend Published: May 20, 2010

Yesterday, my friend Da King, put up a blog post concerning this November's GOP senatorial candidate from Kentucky, Rand Paul. King included many of Rand Paul's policy positions, which I appreciated,...however, King concluded his Paul post in a kind of all-or-nothing way....

Partied Out

By The Reverend Published: May 19, 2010

For over a year now, I've been hearing about how the Patriotic Tea Party movement should be taken oh-so-seriously. Partyers have been deadly serious about taking their country back from whomever stole it from them....and Village Einsteins have been telling us how huge this small movement is, and how big a threat these "grassroots" Partyers are to President Obama and the Democratic congressional majorities.

Even though the public Partyer gatherings have been smallish.....and getting smaller as time goes by....Village Wisdom continues to insist that the TP's are a Serious and Angry force.....a Mighty Force that those dang socialist Democrats will just be forced to reckon with, by golly.

Vatican Raises Peter Defense

By The Reverend Published: May 16, 2010

The Vatican says they're not guilty of anything that U.S. bishops did or did not do in covering up, or not covering up, for Roman Catholic priests in the U.S. who abused and raped young Roman Catholic Church altar boys.....

How It's Done

By The Reverend Published: May 14, 2010

The other day I mentioned that Obama's Supreme Court nominee, Elena Kagan, would be easily confirmed but not before months of totally nonsensical and embarassing political and teevee-dunderhead theater.

I think I underestimated the situation.....

Taxed. Enough. Already.

By The Reverend Published: May 12, 2010

Often, here at the Blog of Mass Destruction, The Reverend has explained the facts about current tax rates in America. Repeatedly, I have shown that income tax rates for Americans are at a very low level, historically. The same is true with capital gains tax rates.

We're proud here at World Headquarters to be just slightly ahead of the curve....

Our national political discourse is oftentimes silly and embarassing. The upcoming back and forth over Elena Kagan's nomination to the Supreme Court will be no exception.

Obama Disappoints Again

By The Reverend Published: May 10, 2010

Barack Obama's campaign theme as he ran for president was "change we can believe in." He delivered that message in a compelling fashion and tens of millions of Americans responded.

After Obama was elected by a clear mandate from the American people, an incoherent, angry astroturf far right movement developed. The Tea Party was born. They primarily screeched about how far left Mr. Obama would take the nation. The stimulus bill passed to avert a rerun of the Great Depression was the first and final straw for patriotic white, middle aged, affluent Republican males who just "wanted their country back." In the eyes of America's far right, Obama was and is a socialist, a destroyer of everything American, so far to the radical left, that there was little difference between him and Joseph Stalin....or Mao.

The Dog Track

By The Reverend Published: May 7, 2010

I didn't hear about yesterday's Big Dow plunge at the Wall Street Dog Track until late last evening. Just after 2PM yesterday, the Dow dropped 980 points. The market recovered after the plunge, somewhat, and the Dow wound up down 347 points for the day.

What's interesting to me is that none of the Very Serious Financial Experts can explain why the drop occurred. This morning there are a few discussions about a shadowy "glitch" as the source of the drop.....others are placing the blame on automatic computer program buying.....others blame Wall Street reform....while still others blame the huge oil slick in the gulf.

Triangulate These Guys

By The Reverend Published: May 6, 2010

I'm very busy today....but tell me what you think of these....

First....Dick Cheney's old company, Halliburton, does oil rigging services. One of the services they provide is "pumping cement to fill the space between the pipe and the sides of the hole"....of an oil well.

Does McCain Believe In America?

By The Reverend Published: May 5, 2010

U.S. citizens, when arrested or detained, have the right to remain silent. They have the right to an attorney. Law enforcement cannot, legally, force an American citizen to tell them anything. That's the law.....has been for quite awhile.

Why, then, do Great Warriors, like Senator John McCain.....call that American right, that American law..."a serious mistake?"

"Only We Fully Understand"

By The Reverend Published: May 4, 2010

Arrogant elitism, the extremely sickening narcisssisstic kind, has never risen to such oxygen-thin heights. Let Andrea Mitchell's husband, ex-Fed Chairman, Alan Greenspan take you to the pinnacle of Mt. Olympus for a glimpse of how gods really think.....

At What Cost?

By The Reverend Published: May 3, 2010

Predictions now coming forth suggest that the ongoing oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico could become the worst environmental tragedy....ever.

Some are predicting that the, now, 30 mile wide oil slick will enter the Gulf Stream waters, go around the tip of Florida, and move up the eastern seaboard. I can't even imagine the damage.
