Helen Thomas announced her retirement today and I say good riddance to her. If we all can agree on nothing else, we can agree that we private citizens should ostracize, marginalize, and disempower bigots as much as we are able, not just this time but every time.
Neither should we let them or their former employers [...]

Earlier today, one of my Twitter followers accused me of supporting South African-style apartheid because I staunchly and with few apologies defend the nation of Israel. This baffled me. Surely defending Israel’s right to exist as a nation does not mean that I support every move the nation makes, does it? To him, it does. [...]

Living fossil Helen Thomas lurched forth from the murk of the tar pits where she lives to issue her solution on the current unrest in the Middle East. I regret that the video is so poor. Apparently, she was not quite up to screaming them from a nearby balcony in the original German.

I suppose I [...]

This has to be some sort of low-key Canadian humor. Otherwise, Canada has lost its flipping mind.
Machete attack shows lack of tolerance
The machete attack on the Chaudière Bridge preceded by a similar attack at a Gatineau bar is a matter that must be addressed by cooler heads and minds.

Rumors that this sign may appear over the entrance to the U.S. Capitol are completely and entirely unfounded.
A gang of thieves in Poland has stolen the infamous wrought iron sign announcing that “work sets you free” that spans the main gate of the Auschwitz concentration camp.
Seriously. There’s no real indication at all that [...]

Well, at least he’s being one hundred percent honest about things for a change.

Reid: Thank you Mr. President, you just mentioned sanctions that have bite, what kinds of sanction, and I know you can’t get into details but what kind of sanctions at all would have bite with Iran, do you really think that any [...]

If Max Zelaya doesn’t get back in as the President of Honduras, he’s certainly qualified to be Barack Obama’s Green Czar. At least he has the crazy as a bedbug qualification locked down.

It’s been 89 days since Manuel Zelaya was booted from power. He’s sleeping on chairs, and he claims his throat is sore from [...]

Here’s another particularly egregious bit from the President’s speech yesterday. In the section of the speech about Israel and the Palestinians he said:

We must remember that the greatest price of this conflict is not paid by us. It’s not paid by politicians. It’s paid by the Israeli girl in Sderot who closes her [...]
