Lots of lists are being written about the decade that's ending tonight. The aughts, the decade has been officially labeled.

Should be called the ought-nots.

I Have Your "Analysis" Right Here

By The Reverend Published: December 30, 2009

Today's Akron Beacon Journal front page broadcasts an article from the Village maiden of the AP, Jennifer Loven. The article is entitled....."One Comment Works Against Administration." Yep....clumsy and kind of stupid sounding.....but even worse, above and to the left of that title is the word "Analysis."

Of course, the Loven piece isn't actually an "analysis"....rather, it's purely opinion. The Loven article would have been a better fit on the opinion page, because that's what it is.....opinion, speculation, conjecture.....but what it isn't...is "analysis." Today's Beacon opinion page is full of political cartoons...so that may be the reason Loven's "analysis" is on the front page.

"Self-Radicalized"

By The Reverend Published: December 28, 2009

If a prominent national event happens.....the arrogant, narcissistic chump Joe Lieberman, of the Lieberman-4-Lieberman Party, usually runs to stand in front of the nearest Fox camera. Recently, during the buildup to the Senate vote on health care reform, Holy Joe was as pleased as he could be with himself for making himself the center of the storm.....dictating to majority Democrats what he would and would not allow them to pass. Joe was just so self-satisfied and smiley about sticking it to his former party members.

Lieberman sat down yesterday with (who else) Fox's Chris Wallace, explaining to Wallace how the Nigerian extremist who tried to bring down a plane coming into Detroit on Christmas day, had been "self-radicalized."

Follow The Money

By The Reverend Published: December 23, 2009

Because greed is one of the most powerful drivers of all human activity, I thought it would be helpful to see how those who make their living through unmitigated greed regard the Democratic health care legislation which moved closer to passage on Sunday morning.......

Health industry index funds did well on Monday....

Complete Morons

Remember all the good times we had with George W. Bush's color-coded terror chart? Now there was some leadership you could believe in, huh?

For perspective today, it's necessary to read what happened December 21, 2003 as reported in the NY Times.....

Congress In 2011.....?

By The Reverend Published: December 19, 2009

Ever see the person dressed up in a gorilla costume standing at an intersection holding a furniture or bedding store sign? Sure you have. Looks kind of stupid, gesturing wildly and so forth, to get drivers' attention. That gorilla is a good representation of today's Republicans.

Kill The Bill

By The Reverend Published: December 17, 2009

The last two mornings my Roadrunner has been working like an old Ford with a bad carburetur......every time I would try to save my work, it was lost. Lots of very vulgar words were spoken.

If you didn't see Keith Olbermann's special comment last night urging Congress and the president to scrap the current rubbish known as the Senate health care reform bill.....you should.

No Change At All

By The Reverend Published: December 15, 2009

The Obama White House and Congressional Democrats are hurriedly wrapping the huge Christmas present they're preparing to give to their bestest friends forever....for-profit coporate health care insurers.

Rahm Emanuel, Obama's Chief of Staff, is doing most of the holiday wrapping this year....

Master De-baters

By The Reverend Published: December 12, 2009

Remember the Oscar quality performances by Hannah Giles and James O'Keefe while trying to entrap ACORN employees into saying something embarassing while being videoed? Giles and O'Keefe, both lackeys for Fox, became overnight winger sensations....the new young wingnut-media patriots. Here's the video if you need to brush up on the story.

Very Disappointing

By The Reverend Published: December 11, 2009

What if The Reverend, at the end of 2009, were to start defending the George W. Bush presidency? That would be quite a turnabout, wouldn't it?

Pigs will fly, of course, before I would even consider doing anything so irresponsible. However, for President Barack Obama....defending the George W. Bush presidency is becoming a full time job.

Medicare Buy-In

By The Reverend Published: December 9, 2009

Now it's getting embarassing.

As I predicted, the Senate has jettisoned the public health insurance option......not that this is a surprise in any way. Many Senators work directly for big medical-pharma-insurance corporations who pay for their elections. Nothing personal against those Americans who need health insurance, mind you......it's just not in their corporate clients' interest......profits and so forth.

Hair-Brained

By The Reverend Published: December 5, 2009

Often, atheists are portrayed as drooling fiends, either mentally disturbed or waging their own personal wars against an alleged divinity. Troubled, or, poor "souls", who, are really only troublemakers getting off by challenging the faithful majority (at least in the U.S.), or poking their rebellious finger in the eye of god for, you know, kicks.

I confess.....occasionally, depending on the 'conditions on the ground', I drool.

Dithering

By The Reverend Published: December 4, 2009

Many on the left thought that the Obama White House, once in place, would quickly seek to rein in the titans of Wall Street. After all, what happened in the fall of 2008 when Hank Paulson temporarily took over the George W. Bush presidency.....was no small deal. The U.S came as close to a total financial collapse as I've ever seen.

Yes, in the fall of 2008, the Bush administration did recognize the imminent danger caused by uncontrolled greed and unaccountable money schemers gone wild.....and acted to alleviate ripple effect damage by shoring up the very financial institutions which created the problem.

Obama's West Point Speech

Barack W. Obama

By The Reverend Published: December 1, 2009

In his scheduled speech tonight at West Point, President Obama will make one of the biggest mistakes of his short presidency. Obama has accepted General McChrystal's recommendations on Afghanistan in their entirety. Those recommendations are unrealistic and have more to do with military testosterone, ego, and the Empire's military industrial complex than the interests of the American people...or reality.

Briefly....Obama is going to imitate George W. Bush tonight. He will send over 30,000 new American troops into an 8+ year directionless quagmire inside a country whose leaders are totally untrustworthy. Obama is doing this to create a perception of strength back home. Ironically, it will be seen in restrospect as just the opposite.
