The Entire NSA Non-Story: Cutting the Crap on Snowden and Greenwald

People have to understand this. I would never say that our intelligence agencies are beyond reproach. It is always possible that the NSA is trying to spy on us. But as of now, based on the documents released by Edward … Continue reading

Attack of the Emos

I tried not to use the term “emo progressive” for a long time, but it’s the least offensive thing I can think to call these know-it-all, mostly white, politically doltish clods who tend to throw a monkey wrench into the progressive … Continue reading

Dear Progressives; Purity Tests Are for the RIGHT Wing

Sometimes, when I look at the self-described “progressive blogosphere,” I wonder if they realize progressives won in 2012. I know they don’t realize we lost big in 2010, or that it was their fault, because they keep doing the same … Continue reading

Repost: Here’s What Obamacare Does…

I posted this on the old blog, on September 14, 2012, before the election. This is what people are complaining about. Seriously. If you think your old insurance was better, there are people who would pay good money for what … Continue reading

The Lionization of Snowden Demonstrates the Lethal Combination of Low Standards and High Ideals

Updated: Another Unsupported Attack on Obama by Greenwald

So, Glenn Greenwald is busy working on “some stories,” but he decided to take time out from his busy schedule to grace us with a column that continues his vendetta against President Obama, and suggests that the charges against Edward … Continue reading

Cutting the Crap on the Snowden Q & A With the Guardian

If the Guardian wants to salvage any credibility at all, they need to jettison Glenn Greenwald. They should also apologize for giving this guy free rein, with no editorial control. It’s one thing to set up a blog and let … Continue reading
