  Former CIA Director James Woolsey has called for Edward Snowden to be hanged at the gallows as a traitor. Woolsey, in a joint press appearance with former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen.

  Editor’s Note:  This is the second in the series of reports here at Blasted Fools, on the politics in Europe resulting not only from the Paris terror attacks, but on the rejection of excessive and incompatible migration from Syria, Libya, Afghanistan and Iraq.       The powers that be, in the Western sector of the European […]

Paris Terror, Islamic Militants and Euro vs Euro

November 17, 2015

  I have a number of observations concerning the horrific attack by Muslim fanatics on Parisian concert goers and others attending sports events and just enjoying the evening on Friday of last week, which claimed 129 victims and likely to claim more. Before I begin, my heart goes out to the survivors of the attack […]

Eric Garner’s Death Penalty – Not a Left or Right thing, but a Wrong thing

December 7, 2014

My analysis of the current national debate on the police misuse of authority and the particular focus on the racial aspect is bound to make certain people on either side of the question unhappy.

For some time now I’ve been attempting to convey the reality that Corporate America, or otherwise casually referred to as ‘Big Business’, broadly speaking – is not practicing what many of us who consider ourselves conservatives would classify as legitimate capitalism.  Corporatism, Corporatocracy, Corruption, Rent Seeking?, yes.  Classic capitalism? – no.  The obstacle in exposing […]

Hello Dear Readers.  I’ve been sidelined for awhile by my own inexplicable sense of invincibility.  It’s beyond comprehension or explanation because my ‘bulletproof’ teen years are long behind me.  So it’s lingering immaturity, but in spite of myself and prior warnings, I set up a work ladder underneath the rain gutter on my home to […]

“I Said I Was Sorry!”

Everyone’s witnessed the insincere, cynical style of apology from one side of it or the other, or both. In childhood, maybe your parents caught you being rude to a brother or sister or  playmate. To correct your behavior and smooth out the wrinkle in the relationship, they told you – “O.K., I want you to apologize […]

In the immediate wake of the initial Snowden revelations about the NSA demanding and receiving millions of phone records of Americans from the telcos, the agency officials and their apologists in Congress reflexively countered the public outcry with the narrative that domestic spying saved us from terror plots and that numerous such plots were thwarted […]
