Voting Bloc Heads

 

The population of the United States just recently hit 300 million. For political candidates, their pollsters and the media, this huge collection of citizens must be categorically jammed into demographic cages for careful observation. The demographics used to be easy to follow, because most elections saw only two distinct groups separated by the biggest issue […]

Profilers in Discourage

 

The Bank of England released the names of 19 people who have been taken into custody for plotting to blow up airplanes while in flight from England to the United States. You can always count on a bank to be the first to flush out deadbeats (“don’t loan these people money!”). Sallie Mae will probably […]

Giving Peace a Glance

 

You wish the world could be completely peaceful, and so do I. There, now that we’ve got that out of the way, we can work our way back to the real world, almost, and talk about the upcoming World Peace Forum in Vancouver, Canada, which begins this Friday and runs through June 28. Here’s the […]

Bennifer to Brangelina

 

It’s no secret that we’re living in a world that is in an ever-increasing hurry to do absolutely nothing. We get road rage (newly diagnosed by epidemiologists who themselves have — you guessed it: too much free time — as “intermittent explosive disorder”) because we’re in a rush to get home to play a video […]

Governmental Viscosity Breakdown

 

It’s true, gas prices are as high as a mouse in Willie Nelson’s laundry hamper. That’s no secret. Yes, retiring Exxon Chairman Lee Raymond got a $400 million retirement package. We all know that. Everybody’s in an uproar. President Bush has ordered a probe into possible gas price cheating on the part of oil companies […]

Okay… The film, entitled An Inconvenient Truth (view clip here) is about, you guess it — global warming. The bad […]

From Si to Shining Si

 

The rallies staged by those purported to care deeply about civil rights and amnesty for Mexican illegals in the United States continue. People who are taking part in these marches are looking for one of four things: A) free stuff from U.S. taxpayers, B) a day off school, C) control over people who answered “A”, […]

Class Clones

 

The United States is galloping toward the inevitable: the cloning of a human being. An Austin, Texas company, ViaGen Inc., has cloned two horses, and has future plans to clone a hundred horses per year. Some people are quite excited about a future of fun and profit with this technology, but there is one aspect […]

Belzer’s Morons

 

On a regular basis, we hear people say how they “support the troops but are against the war.” This has never made much sense to me, but then again, I’m not as smart as actors and comedians. Is there anything they don’t know? Richard Belzer helped hash this out recently. The Law & Order actor […]

Peace at Any Cost

 

The list of feel-good bumper stickers such as “Think globally, act locally” and “You can’t hug your kids with nuclear arms” should now be countered with “Nobody can afford ‘peace at any cost.’” Late last year, four people who were billed as “Christian peace activists” were abducted in Iraq by a group calling itself the […]
