Date Raped by W

by StephanM

I am not a lawyer.  I do not play one on television or on the inter-tubes.  I do not have a detailed understanding of international law or the Geneva Conventions or the laws of war.  So, with that limited understanding, I have been trying to 'wrap my head', so to speak, around the reluctance by the Obama administration and the current congress to investigate the previous administration for suspected war crimes and other alleged illegal actions. I tend to rely on illustrative analogy to understand things or to explain or make a point.  I will attempt to do so now.

Publicist Wanted for Shoe Drive!

by StephanM

The recent actions by one Iraqi journalist have inspired me to start a campaign.  Almost everyone has an old pair of shoes.  I'm sending one to;

Worst President Ever
1600 Pennsylvania Ave

Full Rant over the fold.


Would you send a shoe to W..?

Wisconsin AG, JB Van Hollen, wants to hassle up to 1 million newly registered voters.  Of course, he's a Republican and the state Co-chair of the John McCain Campaign but he insists this is a matter purely of law enforcement. He's so very concerned that a few dozen people with out IDs or Addresses might cast a vote without clearly being legally registered that he's willing to risk incorrectly invalidating tens of thousands of registrations, potentially disenfranchising hundreds or thousands just by confusion alone.

JB Van Hollen, Wisconsin Attorney General and state co-chair for the McCain Campaign, wants to impede or disqualify new voters.  Under the guise of reducing voter ‘fraud’, Van Hollen wants to challenge all voter registrations made since Jan 01, 2006.  I fed the Google "McCain Campaign Wisconsin Co-Chair" (without "" of course) and got multiple references to Van Hollen being McCain's WI Co-chair.  Couldn't find a link on but, you know, those intertubes...

Impressions of Indiana... Purple?!?

by StephanM

I just spent two days in the reddest state in the Midwest.  Home of the Hoosiers, the great 'In God We Trust' state of Indiana.  Which may not be as red as I once thought.

Republican Terrorism

by StephanM

Did you see the video 'tribute' to 9/11..?  Did it scare you?  Sicken you?  It was supposed to.  The Republican party is still pedaling the meme of Divinely Ordained America and the Holy Crusade of Democracy!

2 Drill..? 4 Big Oil...

by StephanM

Drill Here
Drill Now

Doesn't make much sense does it.  Has oil under American shores suddenly been Nationalized so that it drives down the price of gas at home?  No, no, no.  To make sense of this mantra we have to do the Maths:

2 Drill Here
2 Drill Now

That's how it adds up.  I'll explain the equation over the fold.


Drill Here, Drill Now; Lower Gas Prices or Big Oil $$$

What is with these Marble Heads..?

by StephanM

I understand conviction.  I understand sticking to your principles.  I understand grit and determination.  I don’t understand some hard headed people that ignore the opinion of others.  I don’t understand the rationale behind these ‘so called’ conservatives who think that they know what is best for everyone or that their heavy handedness is some kind of tough love.

     I'm new to Blogging.  I have read the diary rules but I'm still learning the ground rules for this community.  I have no intention, at this time, of ever running for public office.  I do not want to go under that microscope.  However, I thought I would like to put together a platform, of sorts.  Perhaps someone does want to know how I feel on certain issues...
