Crystal Balling It

By The Reverend Published: September 30, 2009

No, crystal balling it ain't as arousing or provocative as, say, Teabagging it...but crystal balling it is a bit more coherent and understandable than TeaBagging it...so there's that.

One year ago on October 13th, in a blog post entitled, The Upcoming Obama Presidency, The Reverend typed out these predictions....

Vast Right Wing Conspiracy: Part Deux

A Case Study In Disinformation

By The Reverend Published: September 26, 2009

In a capitalistic society like ours where even "news" is consumed according to brandname, FOX, NBC etc, just like Cheerios or Wheaties......disinformation becoming rampant, I guess, is inevitable.

Today's capitalistic information providers seem to be pulling off the impossible, i.e., convincing Americans that they can have whatever facts they so desire. A kind of designer-news-and-information boutique, if you will, where whatever you want to believe, or already believe to be true,....is, viola!....true.

Partly Funny With A Chance Of Crazy

By The Reverend Published: September 25, 2009

The imaginative Steve King (R-IA) says that gay marriage is a "purely socialistic concept."

Have you noticed how conservatives and Republicans see socialistic threats, like, everywhere? Damn odd, if you ask me.

By The Reverend Published: September 24, 2009

The guy in the above picture is Bill Sparkman from Kentucky. He's now dead, having been hanged recently and left to rot in a remote area of Daniel Boone National Forest. That's right, he was hung from a tree and when found had the word "fed" scrawled on his chest.

Busting The News

By The Reverend Published: September 23, 2009

I read a good one from the associate editor of NewsBusters. NewsBusters is a creatively conservative online site usually chock full of fact-free, wingnut postings.

First, a quick review...

44 Years Later...

By The Reverend Published: September 22, 2009

In 1965, Congress passed and President Lyndon Johnson signed into law legislation creating Medicare, a socialized version of health care for all U.S. seniors.

In 1965, I believe, the Democratic Party was more liberal than today's party and the Republican Party was much more moderate.

Flinging Feces

By The Reverend Published: September 17, 2009

What is a country to do when a major teevee network is willing to do anything it can to discredit, to tear down, to disrupt a popular Democratic president's agenda? Should that teevee network simply be ignored? Does that network have any responsibility to the public any longer, or is it perfectly fine for that network to lie, propagandize, distort,....and even entrap perceived friends of Obama in personal "sting" operations?

Tea Partiers: The Incarnation of Dick Cheney

By The Reverend Published: September 15, 2009

Updated below

Humans will lie about almost anything.....check that....Humans will lie about anything. I'm not sure whether the human habit of lying can be attributed to evolution or not. Perhaps we have been programmed over 15,000 years or so to deceive other humans for self-preservation purposes.

"Tenther" Tim Pawlenty

By The Reverend Published: September 12, 2009

Minnesota Republican governor Tim Pawlenty has been touted as a potential GOP candidate for president. Pawlenty's name came up quite often as a possible vice-presidential pick for John McCain in 2008.

Ex-Alaska governor, Sarah Palin, Senator John Ensign (NV) and South Carolina governor Mark Sanford have also been touted as possible GOP presidential candidates for 2012. Each one has been having their own personal difficulties of late, to say the least.

Media Helps Anti-Worker Cause

By The Reverend Published: September 7, 2009

If the cost of health care continues to rise in America, who will it hurt the most?

It won't be the wealthy, they will be able to continue to afford medical coverage, because...they're rich.

Message To Obama: "Don't Talk To Our Kids"

By The Reverend Published: September 4, 2009

Crazy sh*t.... The extremists among conservatives in America are pegging the radical meter by threatening to take their kids out of public school the day President Obama is scheduled to speak via teevee to all school children. Obama, say the extremists, is seeking to indoctrinate students with......well...I have no idea...but it's scary and sneaky.

Rolling Out New Products

By The Reverend Published: September 2, 2009

"From a marketing point of view, you don't introduce new products in August."

That's what Bush Chief of Staff Andrew Card said of a very special marketing campaign launched in September, 2002. A marketing campaign, a selling campaign....to convince Congress and the American people that invading and occupying a country which did not pose a threat to the U.S., had no truck with al-Qaeda of 9-11, and which had been emaciated militarily by a decade of sanctions and flyover bombings,....was an imminent threat to every American life.

WingnutStock 2009

By The Reverend Published: September 1, 2009

It could be called the Summer of Insanity. But that's too harsh, isn't it? Too shrill. Rather than refer to the brave, thoughtful and calmly-expressed, yet steroidally-enhanced, patriotism we've been witnessing this summer over the many Democratic proposals to kill our grandparents and turn all of us into socialist Obamabots with a strong desire to have a sex-change operation WHILE having a government paid for abortion....rather than call such an unusual display of love for country..insane, I prefer the title, WingnutStock 2009.

Instead of Peace and Love being the central theme of WingnutStock 2009, it's "gas chambers for seniors and babies".....so 40 years does make a difference, huh?.....
