I Pay $7 Per Hour to Watch TV?

Wednesday, March 9, 2011 18:52 51 Comments

I’m what you would call TV ignorant. I don’t know what cable channels I have, I don’t care, and I never remember what channel is what each time I turn the bloody thing on. I watch the local Detroit news at 10pm sometimes, Judge Napolitano on FOX Business News when I can, or occasionally, a [...]

The Movie “Fathead” – Anti-Establishment, Anti-Lifestyle Fascism, and Very Libertarian

Tuesday, March 8, 2011 22:25 13 Comments

The movie Fathead has, as its motto, “You’ve been fed a load of bologna.” This movie, from comedian and former health writer Tom Naughton, is a brilliant compilation of anti-medical establishment musing, skepticism, anti-lifestyle fascism, and libertarianism. For your viewing, the film is available (for free) on Tom Naughton, the writer and director of [...]

Information Oligarchy

Sunday, March 6, 2011 17:47 2 Comments

I’m due for one of my invectives aimed at the Wall Street Journal. Admittedly, I have a love-hate relationship with this ruling class broadsheet and I consistently renew my subscription. It’s less about how much I enjoy the rag than it is about having a passion for keeping up with everything, especially with its quick-moving [...]

Corporate State Powers and Government Food Policy

Sunday, March 6, 2011 13:00 1 Comment

Here is some more propaganda from a government organization, the American Heart Association. ‘Meet the Fats’ is on the AHA website. (Click here.) The lies passed off as “facts” (see Facts #1 – #5.) are 1) Saturated fats are bad 2) Polyunsaturated and Monounsaturated fats are good because “they can lower your bad cholesterol and [...]

Government Can’t Kill Easy-Bake Oven

Saturday, March 5, 2011 15:28 2 Comments

Because of the new federalista-environmentalist war on light bulbs, the traditional Easy-Bake Oven is in a hot spot. The incandescent light bulb that cooked the cakes for millions of aspiring bakers will be phased out (read: forcefully banned) in 2012, so Hasbro has made a major announcement: “We are aware that the 100-watt incandescent light [...]

Spaniards Identify America With Cupcakes

Saturday, March 5, 2011 14:50 2 Comments

George, a reader, writes me to say: “El Pais on the American Way of Life symbolized with Cupcake graphic.” Check out this Spanish website and the logo for its “American Way of Life.” A red-white, and blue cupcake. Even the Spaniards get it.

In Defense of Suzanne Somers

Friday, March 4, 2011 20:00 9 Comments

Okay, so even I think she is not the brightest bulb in the room – a wee bit similar to her “Three’s Company” role. But I have a few comments in her defense on the latest Dateline show, “A Dose of Controversy.” (Scroll down to Feb 20th episode.) Somers is being hated on by the [...]

The Government’s Ponzi Crimes

Wednesday, March 2, 2011 23:00 57 Comments

A recent headline from Yahoo read, “Madoff to NY Magazine: Government a Ponzi Scheme.” While most people are not interested in hearing mocking political commentary from the swindling Madoff who made-off with the wealth of his unenlightened investors, any slight tilt toward reasoned thought will surely lead one to assess how his abominations pale in [...]

The Criminality of the US Dietary Guidelines

Wednesday, March 2, 2011 21:34 5 Comments

This is a great video of the Weston A. Price condemnation (okay, critique) of the federal government’s fraudulent misuse of science to develop the new government dietary guidelines that continue to make people fatter and sicker. It is slightly in excess of two hours, but it is worth every minute spent away from the boob [...]
