So, How Do You Fight War Against Terrorism?

One of the comments to my posting awhile back stated that the war on terrorism launched by Bush is indeed a legitimate war. To that I disagree, but, it made me think, if this is indeed a war, well, how do you fight it? How do you fight not a certain army, but an idea? Terrorism is a concept -...

Hey, Where You Gonna Retire?

Boy, you just gotta love those conservatives. They are masters of changing subjects, twisting, muddling, and any subject you start discussing with them turns out to be something else. We started discussion about American history, West Coast being liberal mecca etc., when it all degenerated into... Sign in to see full entry.

Where Are Real Americans?

Reading some comments to my postings, I see there is a misconception about Washington State as being "liberal mecca". This is because of the Seattle area and its reputation of being ultra liberal, which is true. But move a little away, and especially if you wander into Eastern Washington, you will...

It's Good To Be Welcome In The Fray!

I have a confession to make: in Europe, we don't think much of American history. Having said that, I don't mean that I knock it or don't want to learn about it. It's just that compared to the ancient history of the world, that goes back thousands of years, here we are talking several hundred. Not... Sign in to see full entry.

Yes, We So Need Fox News!

I have read (with delight) some of the comments to my blog about Fox TV News. Okay, NOW I understand why we need it. One poster said, and I agree, that they slant every news story that it's hard to tell the story from the politics. Some of you have been harder on me, stating that I came from...

Europe Welcomes Bush (Wink)

Is it only me, or were media really hush about Bush's tour around Europe, and the (un)welcome reception he got wherever he went? I follow several media sources in different languages, and in the past few days, they've been reporting Bush visiting Slovenia, Italy, Great Britain, to name a few. One... Sign in to see full entry.

Hey, I'm Al-Qaida Terrorist (Not)

Once more, in its endless series of mistakes, oversights and bloopers, the Bush administration has implicitly admitted that many of the "Al-Qaida fighters" imprisoned in Guantanamo Bay were innocent farmers, petty criminals, or even activists engaged in supporting the U.S. in Afganistan. Instead,... Sign in to see full entry.

Why Do We Need Fox TV?

Of all amenities in modern America, I find few more amazing than the good old Fox TV News Channel. How those people, with so little care for truth and objective reporting, can ever survive in today's world of competitive media is incomprehensible. But then, I thought, that's exactly why they...

Are We There Yet? - Global Energy Crisis and More

I see a perfect scenario for doomsday aficionados: gas prices out of control, energy prices following, food supply shrinking and becoming more expensive, natural resources fewer to come by, good chunk of world on the brink of hunger, etc, etc. While all this in broad strokes looks like a perfect...

So Who's Gonna Be Obama's Running Mate?

Is it just me, or is there a real reluctance among Democrats to run with Obama? Of course, it is too early in the race, but the latest news saying that head of Obama's vetting team resigned caught my attention. At this stage, informal, semi-confidential meetings are held. Even though no one had said... Sign in to see full entry.
