Eat Less on Thanksgiving

Posted By on Wed, Nov 22, 2006 at 8:27 PM

Here's a tongue-and-cheek article how to not go hog wild on Thanksgiving.

A few of the tips that I particularly like and may incorporate in my dinner are to dye all the food the same color and to eat blindfolded with a peg up my nose...

Blogging will be sporadic and maybe light over the next several days, because there's, like, a holiday and stuff. Have a great Thanksgiving, everyone.

Muslims Removed From a Plane

Posted By on Tue, Nov 21, 2006 at 8:27 AM

America Worst America West US Airways is in a bit of hot water after removing six Muslim imams from a plane to Phoenix because they dared to, um, pray.

That's all we know. If all the imams did was pray, then US Airways deserves all the criticism they can get.

And if the name Omar Shahin sounds familiar, there's a reason why: He's a former Tucsonan.

What in the Hell Is Charles Rangel Doing?!?

Posted By on Mon, Nov 20, 2006 at 8:57 AM

I've always liked the outspokenness of Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., the incoming chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. His politics have been OK, too. But now he's proposing that the country reinstate the draft.

What in the fuck?

The Dems have not even taken power yet, and they're already trying to piss of the public and mess things up. What is he thinking? Well, here's what he told The Associated Press:

Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., said Sunday he sees his idea as a way to deter politicians from launching wars.

''There's no question in my mind that this president and this administration would never have invaded Iraq, especially on the flimsy evidence that was presented to the Congress, if indeed we had a draft and members of Congress and the administration thought that their kids from their communities would be placed in harm's way,'' Rangel said.

Rangel, a veteran of the Korean War who has unsuccessfully sponsored legislation on conscription in the past, has said the all-volunteer military disproportionately puts the burden of war on minorities and lower-income families.

His points may have validity, but good God, man. This is not going to play well. I can hear the complaints now: Those Democrats want to send me/my kid/my grandkid into the Army!

This is not good. Not good at all.

Michael Moore's Pledge to Disheartened Conservatives

Posted By on Sat, Nov 18, 2006 at 9:25 AM

Whether you love or hate Michael Moore, he's not going away, and he's not going to shut up (which is what I particularly love about him).

In this op-ed piece in the Los Angeles Times, Moore wants to offer an olive branch to conservative Republicans to reassure them that everything is going to be OK.

Concession on 107

Posted By on Fri, Nov 17, 2006 at 3:48 PM

On Wednesday, the pro-family-as-long-as-they-fit-our-narrow-definition-of-family Center for Arizona policy conceded that their baby, Proposition 107, had indeed failed.

While the defeat of 107 is great news for equality, fairness and love all around, rest assured: the Center for Arizona Policy folks are not going away. The concession statement should be required reading for everyone involved, even tangentially, in the fight for equality, fairness and love.
