On John Boehner and booze

If he is an alcoholic and not in recovery then he should give up the Speaker's gavel.

There have been rumors for years that he is a drunk. Surely the GOP wouldn't be so irresponsible as to put a drunk third in line for the Presidency. Or would they?

On Deepak Chopra

The charitable take on him is that he is simply a salesman pushing a product.

A more charitable take is that he is delusional and actually believes the crap he is peddling.

A less charitable take is that he is  a confidence man.


On Civility

In my experience, the call for "keeping the conversation civil" is often a weapon used by the privileged to sweep the concerns of those legitimately  outraged by said privilege under the rug.

On Royce White

White calls Rockets' statements misleading, inaccurate |
"I do wish to play, but I only intend to do so with the collaboration and recommendation of trained professionals. The purpose of a doctor's confirmation is to ensure that health decisions are made in the sole interest of health and not conflicted with business. My only hope is that decision makers involved realize that doctors are the only logical source to decide action."

If he had a physical issue there would be no question. Because it is a mental health issue he is told that he must just suck it up or is described as being some sort of whiner.

We have a broken society.

Rick Warren - A reminder that he was always a douchebag

Rick Warren: Aurora shooting the fault of evolution - National atheism |
"“People say... where was God in all of this? We've threatened high school graduation participations, if they use God's name, they're going to be jailed... I mean that kind of stuff. Where was God? What have we done with God? We don't want him around. I kind of like his protective hand being present.”"

I have seen a bit of move toward rehabilitating Rick Warren. Please don't forget what a douchebag he really is.
