Trickle Down Economics Works! New Report by Brit Think Tank on Somali Piracy.

  I regularly get brought up short and reality checked when listening to BBC radio. I cannot imagine having heard this information reported on MSM, not here in the good ol’ U.S. of A.   Dr. Anja Shortland’s most jarring statement during the interview, at least to my sensibilities, was

Jimmy Fallon as David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust Playing Tim Tebow……..a Video.

I am not a big fan of SNL, I figure they owe me a lot of time that I’ll never get back because the cast members all believe (and somehow keep convincing Hollywood execs) that movie star is the natural next progression of their respective careers. I rarely turn on the

BreakDown of New Hampshire Primary Voter/Citizen Participation.

  I have decided to do a second one of these blog posts to give those at the Lake a feel for the participatory zeal of the citizenry in 2012. Or as we say in General assemblies, take a “temperature check” to decide whether to continue to bother further with this particular

Ron Paul, Voter Turnout in Iowa, Our Broken System, and Teh Kabuki.

  I rarely deign to spend any of my time any longer following the kabuki presented to us lemmings as a substitute for our late democracy; for much the same reason that I don’t spend time watching or engaging  in dialogues about reality TV, or TV of any sort for

Hey FireDogs……below are some photos from earlier this afternoon of an action and march going on at this writing. I wasn’t aware of this coming up, but Brenda was kind enough to email these photos and the accompanying copy.

OCCUPY TUCSON Does What Occupies Do……for a 3rd Time Now, at a 3rd Park.

Occupy Tucson originally made a stand in solidarity with OWS and to actively exercise their first amendment rights to peaceably assemble and petition the government for redress of grievances at Armory Park beginning on October 14th. They were evicted from that first location on November 15th. That same evening they occupied

Occupy Tucson Evicted for 2nd Time From 2nd Park.

I just got off of the phone with Jane after having decided to call her when my response to her email inquiring as to how we were doing seemed somehow inadequate. The conversation devolved into a sort of debriefing that left me feeling at least a little more energized, and definitely
