Water Boarding for Dollars

I always wanted to post my opinion about Sean Hannity. The reason that I never went ahead with my plan was that I knew my opinion would be about the same as it would be for any far right fundamentalist. To some I would be preaching to the choir and to others I would be a biased left wing socialist. So I will let Sean himself let you know what kind of a person he is by watching this short clip.

America's Fix All, Lawyers, Guns and Money

Written By Warren Zevon

I went home with the waitress
The way I always do
How was I to know
She was with the
Russians, too?

I was gambling in Havana
I took a little risk
Send lawyers, guns and money
Dad, get me out of this, hyeah

I'm the innocent bystander
Somehow I got stuck
Between the rock
and a hard place
And I'm down on my luck
Yes I'm down on my luck
Well I'm down on my luck

I'm hiding in Honduras
I'm a desperate man
Send lawyers, guns and money
The shit has hit the fan

All right
Send lawyers, guns and money

America's Looming Moral Bankruptcy


How embarrassing and degrading can we be ? When did our moral senses take leave of our souls ?

Americans fail to protest over the hideousness of wars, that continues to allow events displayed in the photos above to be perpetrated against brave American men and women, and on innocent Iraqi and Afghani civilians. Kill in spend is now seen in some Americans eyes as a better alternative than tax and spend.

Instead the right and the left continue to slug it out over money. There are tea parties spewing with hatred, not for life and limb but for cash, and for less taxes, or to lay blame on which administration bailed out who.

We no longer tag one another as liberals and conservatives, now we are fascist and socialists. I do not want my hard earned tax dollars used to kill human beings, unless our country is attacked first, so I'm not sure what to call myself yet.

Why is it such a crime to keep the American automobile industry intact but not a crime to spend trillions on death and destruction ?

Priorities in this country are disgustingly wrong and America is amoral.

All of our political leaders in the house, and even the President seems to busy to address the two wars that continues the policy of kill and spend, while right wingers are crying about the politics of tax and spend.

The left has yet organized a significant protest to counter death and destruction, and while all this turmoil about money is front and center the American soldiers get put on the back burner. This gives the new administration, and everyone of our political leaders from the right and the left the chance to turn a blind eye to the needs of our veterans, and towards war crimes and torture, and finally putting an end to the war in Iraq. How patriotic.

Tea for Two

Since yesterday all you hear about is the big tea party. Its on all the blogs, left and right, its on all the cable news/clown shows left and right, and it is even being promoted by FOX television station, you know the station which is renown for being fair and balanced.

So I thought, there will never be a better time to actually talk about tea, and to show off some of my favorite teapots.

Since there is such a large variety of these aromatic bags I will get right to the point . My favorite tea maker is Tazo, they import all their herbs from around the world and manufacture their tea in Portland, Oregon, yes that would be one state that doesn't want to secede from the USA.

My favorite flavor is organic black chai, oh yes that would be black, as the black president of America who is giving us the biggest tax cuts since President Ronald Reagan.

This tea is a rich blend of sweet cinnamon, zingy ginger, spicy star anise, cloves, and warm cardamom. These spices are flown in from Asia, Central America and Africa, yea Africa, the Africa where our black president was not born in.

Did you know ? In the foothills of the Himalayas, chai wallahs can be found serving up steaming cups of sweetly spiced chai to wandering souls.

Come Together

With the weight of the world upon his back and with many an international ear set firmly by his lips Obama began the arduous task of healing this nation.

If you have read my blog in the past you will take note that I don't always agree with Obama at every turn. Yet I was quite exhilarated when I witnessed the positive reception he garnered abroad.

His eloquence coupled with the right amounts of certitude and humility then balanced with his willingness to be accountable for America's arrogance and mistakes spoke volumes, and it gave insight to the sincerity and truthfulness of his intentions, his tone was hard to dismiss by Americans and our global neighbors alike. Even as he made it clear to the world that America has also been the catalyst of many good deeds that have affected the world positively.

What may be hard for the world to believe, is the knowledge known by the majority of Americans. That knowledge being that even during these, the worst of times in American history in more than sixty years, the majority of the opposition party wants President Obama to fail.

The right wing has tried like an old cowpoke to cover their trail by swishing a branch over their footprints. It is to late to take back words that are recorded and videos that reveal the divisiveness percolating in our own country.

After having a near illiterate, rude and arrogant face representing our great country for the past eight years one would think that an American from either side of the aisle would take great delight and pleasure and be proud to be represented by a thoughtful person, a representative of our country who is held in esteem by most of the worlds population, and not in disdain.

I firmly believe in that America we have a duty to agree to always have healthy disagreements, it is part of our fabric, but to wish the leader of our country ill will and to fail is an act of treason. I hated what the previous administration stood for, but I only wished that they would stop breaking our laws and stop stealing our liberties by shredding our constitution. I never wanted our leaders to fail if only for the sake of my country and my personal well being.

I am glad that Obama and his team have extended a long awaited hand in an effort to aide our planet. Hopefully in these dire times all recognized world leaders will in the words of John Lennon "Come Together" right now over me.
