WOULD AMERICANS ELECT A FAT PRESIDENT?

It was revealed last week that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie got lap-band surgery in an effort to lose weight. He claims that it is simply a matter of health, and that he wants to ensure that he is around to see his kids grow up. But many political observers speculate that this might have…

I AGREE WITH SARAH PALIN

Yeah, that’s not a sentence I ever expected to write, either. But this is one instance where my inner-Libertarian streak comes out. Last weekend, at the annual Conservative Political Action Committee convention, Sarah Palin drank a Big Gulp from 7/11, and mocked New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, who attempted to enforce a municipal ban on…

STAR-SPANGLED BEYONCE

So word came out a few days ago that Beyonce lip-synched the Star Spangled Banner at the Presidential Inauguration on Monday. And, predictably, there’s the expected level of faux-outrage and indignation rearing its ugly head across the airwaves and, especially, the internet. I have to say that honestly don’t see what’s the big frakkin deal.…

KENNEDY AND THE CUBAN MISSILE CRISIS

US President John F. Kennedy meeting with Soviet President Nikita Khrushchev I just finished watching an episode of Commander In Chief: Inside The Oval Office on the Military Channel. This particular episode was about The Cuban Missile Crisis., and how President Kennedy dealt with it. It’s interesting that, these days, it seems like whenever people…

THE FIRST DEBATE

Y’know, I made it a point to NOT watch the debate between President Obama and Governor Romney last week. It seemed like everyone who was on Facebook @ the time was watching it. My home page was deluged with updated posts, mostly with Obama supporters calling Romney a liar, during the whole thing. As it…

MITT THE SO-CALLED “GAY BASHER”

So, I’ve posted my thoughts on Mitt Romney before, explaining why I don’t think his religious beliefs should be held against him or be an issue in this campaign. And now here we have another irrelevant distraction, in my opinion. I thought this was all done with months ago, but one of my Facebook friends…

MITT THE MORMON

http://www.mittromney.com/ So, tomorrow (or today, depending on when I actually finish this) the Republican Presidential Primary season officially begins, as voters in Iowa hold caucuses to vote for whom they think the GOP nominee should be. Mitt Romney, who had a strong performance in the 2008 primaries, entered this race last year as the presumptive…

FRANK MILLER IS A WANKER

This has been discussed ad nauseum across the net, but I just wanted to get my viewpoint down for the record. Last weekend, Rich Johnston reporter on Bleeding cool some of the comments from Frank Miller regarding the Occupy Wall Street Movement. Occupy Frank Miller Now, I’m already on record as saying that I don’t…

OCCUPADO

What’s your opinion of the occupy movement & 99%? My biggest issue with it is that I’m not exactly sure what the ultimate goal of the so-called movement is. Some try to compare it to the Tea Party Movement, which I am no fan of, but @ least they had specific goals that they argued…

RANDOM POLITICAL THOUGHTS

From today’s DAILY POST: If you started your own nation, what would be in your constitution? This brings up a topic that I’ve thinking about a lot recently, specifically about some of the things that I think are wrong with the current state of the American political system, and how I would change them. So…

THE PRINCE’S BRIDE

I stopped @ Target store on my way to work ta few days ago, and I saw the above book on the shelves. They’re not even married yet, and you’ve already got a “bestselling” author writing books about them. This is something I’ve thought about for years, and came to mind again last week when…

DON’T CHANGE THE 14TH AMENDMENT

Section 1 of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution begins: All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. Some Republican politicians (with the exceptions of John McCain and Mike Huckabee) want to remove that…

CALIFORNIA GAY MARRIAGE BAN OVERTURNED!

AWESOME! I wish all these gay marriage opponents would get over themselves. If you don’t believe in gay marriage, fine, that’s your business. If a gay couple invites you to their wedding, don’t go. But you don’t have the right to forbid the couple from doing it. As far as I’m concerned, homosexuals have just…

GLENN BECK MIGHT GO BLIND

I don’t like Glenn Beck @ all. Really, I think he’s the epitome of what is wrong with political discourse in the U.S. today. However, after hearing the recent news that he might be going blind, I can’t help but feel sorry for him. Going blind is one of my biggest fears, I can’t even…

SUPERHEROES & POLITICS

Last year I wrote a blog where I listed MY 10 FAVORITE SUPERHEROES Today I’m revisiting that list. This time I’m speculating as to what their individual political leanings are, and whothey voted for in the last election, President Barack Hussein Obama or Sen. McCain? 1/CAPTAIN MARVEL In his secret identity, Captain Marvel is actually…

THE OBAMESSIAH COMPLEX

This blog was partially inspired by some other recent blogs that I have read. MULATTO OF THE MONTH AN HISTORIC INAUGURATION…NOW WHAT? OBAMA IS MY ACE, BUT, SERIOUSLY, GET OFF THE MAN’S DICK I’ve always found the constant cries of “messiah,” “celebrity,” “savior,” etc. to be both amusing and annoying. First, it’s insulting in that…

REPOST: SENATOR IRAQ OSAMA FOR PRESIDENT?

1/20/09 UPDATE: This is the blog that I originally wrote on 12/23/06 & posted on my Myspace page. It’s interesting to see how certain I was that I was right (love the part where I wrote “Ni**a please!”). Yet, as we can see, I was WRONG (although I was correct about the enhanced expectations he…

KEEP YOUR STINKIN’ SHOES ON, DUMBASS!

Ha ha, very funny. I hate that this is my 3rd straight blog that deals with politics in some way, but I just have to say this. I’m sure that, by now, most everyone has seen or heard of this incident, where some Iraqi journalist threw his shoes at President Bush. I wasn’t going to…

PRESIDENT BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA

Many people didn’t think it could be done. And I was one of them. I said it online, in my own blog, and other friend’s blogs. As well as other online message boards. I said that Amerca would never elect a Black man who’s middle name is Hussein and who’s last name rhymes with Osama.…

THE U.S GOVERNMENT WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR 9/11!!!

Well, that’s what SOME people think. But I don’t believe so. And I’m going to tell you why. Generally speaking, I have a natural distrust of all authority, be it political, capitalistic, or religious. I consider myself a skeptic, but I’m also a realist. I follow the principle known as “Occum’s Razor,” which basically states…
