Donald Trump is on Probation

November 9, 2016

So, here we are – November 9th. The election is over and the country is not united, in fact it is split down the middle, as the results of the vote tallys indicate – Clinton winning the popular vote and Trump, the electoral vote. I have some random thoughts about the outcome and this is […]

Wait Until Payday

The world may change in many ways, but human nature never does.  People struggle to comprehend why it is that tyrannical and corrupt people seem to manage to gather more power and wealth and escape the consequences that should be their lot in a just world. King David wondered about this, but concluded: “Fret not […]

His Royal Majesty’s Drones

I wanted to embed one of the all time scenes involving a predator drone from the world of entertainment.  This, from the grand series end finale of my favorite TV drama, 24 – was my initial choice –  because it affords you the script writer’s anticipation of the policy argument now at hand – that […]

    Editor’s Note: I’m always on the lookout for talented writers on subjects that are vitally important to my readers here on Blasted Fools.   Through my many associations within Freedom Connector, I frequently discover colleagues who bring a profound understanding of the threats to freedom.  Ms. Deb Stefani, my guest writer for today is […]

Feinkenstein

Feinkenstein’.  That’s Di Fi’s new name here at Blasted Fools.  We published a comprehensive dossier on her, just before last November’s election when we tried to assist her opponent Elizabeth Emken in gaining some much needed traction in the polls.  That and any other efforts in the Nickel State (formerly Golden), were exercises in futility.  […]

Father Knows Best

Politicians, by the nature of how they are wired as human beings, are inclined to seek opportunity in tragedy. Rarely, if ever, do you find one that possesses the instinct of a leader and a problem-solver. The responses are cynical and contrived stratagems the purpose of which is to demonstrate that they are paying attention […]

Foul Fanatics Foment Feral Fecal Fatwas

My ‘Person of the Year 2012’ – Malala Yousafzai. The epitome of an ‘Anti-Blasted Fool’. I frequently highlight the many examples of how islam is not now and was never conceived by its founder and his followers as a ‘religion of peace’.  Instead it is a religion in which those who resist its conversion find […]

The Awakening

Some events are of such magnitude that they tend to elicit a reaction from even the most inert societies.  Think France and its typical moral ambivalence.   Similarly, some events have the tendency to create a level of discomfort that even takes us out of our natural comfort zone of common and basic cultural foundations.  […]

Leave your Free Speech at the Curb – but only until you are ordered to leave.

Originally, I had leaned towards taking a pass on this story. It wasn’t until I found that most of the people I’ve discussed it with, haven’t heard it, but also found it difficult to believe, that I decided to write a post.  I decided that it was important for you to realize the extent to […]

Property of the U.S. Government

September 5, 2012

A strange parallelism became visible today – one that has a degree of irony, but is not much of a surprise considering the parties behind it. The parties behind it were the Democrat party and the Communist party of Cuba. First the Democrat party and an advertisement promoting the values of the party:   Government […]
