Donald Trump – your newest Lucy Van Pelt

January 31, 2016

Everyone that grew up with Charles Schulz’ Peanuts cartoon strip and the animated specials, recognizes someone like Charlie Brown, the earnest, good hearted, self conscious and regretfully easily duped, little fellow that really wants to believe. He’s also mildly neurotic and tortured by insecurity and doubts. Many of us even see a bit of ourselves […]

Edward Snowden helped the Paris Terror ISIS plot. Say What?

November 21, 2015

  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. Hugh Shelton, opined that Snowden “should be prosecuted for treason. If convicted by a jury of his peers, he […]

Globalist War Hawks see opportunity in the Islamic State

September 3, 2014

Hawks…or Vultures? I just read a piece posted on Drudge, from the Washington Post, in which the writers, Sebastian Payne and Robert Costa, take note of what they observe as a shift in the GOP, away from the trend of non-interventionism, back towards ‘hawkism’, i.e, the NeoCon perspective and focus. I don’t doubt the numbers, […]

The Real Targets of Class Warfare

January 31, 2014

3

There has been, as you’ve no doubt noticed, a persistent theme surging back and forth between the polar spectrums of political thought, regarding the question of ‘Class Warfare’.  It especially animates many media personalities on the Right, who decry any criticism of the unprecedented rise of the accumulation of wealth within a small statistical segment […]

Don’t Get Fooled Again

November 22, 2013

I’ve been writing about Illegal Aliens and Comprehensive Immigration ‘Reform’ from a lot of different angles.  That it’s not economically sustainable, that it wreaks havoc on our culture and educational system, the crime, that immigrant ‘family values’ are in no way superior to ours, as Jeb Bush claims, and that not vigorously enforcing immigration law […]

Shall I SuperSize Your NDAA Combo Meal?

November 19, 2013

2014’s iteration of the National Defense Authorization Act is approaching a vote in the Senate.  Typical of the process of crafting a bill that involves such an enormous segment of the nation’s budget, is the perennial attempt by interest groups to insert amendments that often have zero to do with the target of the appropriations […]

Hillary’s Obamacare Problems – among other things…

November 16, 2013

2

When I have an informal discussion with folks about what the future looks like, particularly with respect to 2016, inevitably the topic of Hillary Clinton comes up.  What my friends are especially wondering and concerned about is “do you think Hillary Clinton will win the White House?”  It is a daunting proposition.  Even my 90 […]

American Consumer Culture = Debt Slavery

October 13, 2013

2

A lot of concern – well founded, in my opinion, centers around the skyrocketing growth of our national debt. To everyone with a solid grounding in economics and history, this is a dark, ominous cloud hanging over America. I’ve noted that our grandchildren will despise us for bequeathing to them a collective burden of taxation […]

The ‘Peace Of Mind Metric’

October 2, 2013

5

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 […]

Big Businesses Whore For Common Core

September 29, 2013

One of the recurring themes on Blasted Fools is emphasizing the reality that big American corporations, broadly speaking, are no longer traditional capitalists, and haven’t been for quite some time – perhaps for a century or more.  There is a different name for their business dealings and their behavior in society – corporatism.  I’ve said […]
