Our Truths Should Be True

These days, Facebook is where a lot of us do our politicking. Like most soap boxes, we do a lot of preaching to the choir there, but that’s okay for reinforcement is a good thing. What we’re hoping for, of course, is that our arguments, expressed in the cute little graphics we “like” and “share,” will be so brilliant that we’ll bring some fence-sitters over to our way of thinking or, better yet, help some certified tea baggers see the error of their ways. The trouble is, we’re not going […]

What’s Wrong With Walmart Is What’s Wrong With America

A protest in Utah against Walmart. Photo by Joey CaputoToday I ran across an old article, originally posted in 2010, 16 Facts About Walmart That Will Blow Your Mind by Ujala Sehgal on Business Insider. Actually, the piece was more slide show than article, but it succinctly explained some rather scary facts about this giant retailer. I thought I’d take this opportunity to go over some of the facts laid out in the article, with my own observations thrown in for good measure. 1. Walmart has more full-time employees — […]

The Agenda

The way I see it, we’re preaching to the choir. If you’re reading this, then you most likely somewhat agree with us, or you are at least tolerant of the our viewpoint. Unless you’re a trolling teabagger, then you’re here because you want to go slack jawed and slap yourself, so you can go on Facebook and post a link to our site and tell everyone how laughable we are. If you’re the latter, you’re going to be disappointed. You’ll not find much fodder for your amazement here. The way […]

Obama and the Supremes

I can’t try to play to the middle anymore, because the middle is downright confused. All I can do is tell the truth as I see it; I can assure you that will usually be far from the middle. Or will it? Do we really see the middle? Most of the people I know think a lot like me, we share a wavelength even though we’re on different channels. We support Obama, kind-of-sort-of. We believe in offering our neighbors a helping hand when they need it, and think that would […]

Who’s Money Is It Anyway?

Ever since the laissez-faire capitalist all but completely took over our economy, we’ve been told that we have absolutely no right to regulate business. If the Enrons of the world want to keep their houses of cards propped-up by breaking the back of Californians, we’re supposed to be perfectly fine with that – after all, it’s a free country and they should be allowed to do whatever they want. Likewise, if Walmart wants to employ practices that force their suppliers to move their factories overseas in order to stay in […]

Teens to Congress – “We Have Sex!”

Editor’s note: The Coffee Party movement posted this on their Facebook page today with the following intro: “Since Planned Parenthood has become ground zero in the fight over the budget, please watch this powerful, viral video. Imagine a reality-based, not an ideology-based, discussion about the budget!” Co-incidentally, showing up on our wall right next to this video was the following status update by our friend Matthew Arnett with KRKC News in King City, California: “Maybe if Republicans read the study on unwanted babies becoming democrats, they will leave the funding […]

Today’s Video: Donald Duck Meets Glenn Beck

Being baby-boomers who grew up in the 1950s and 60s, we couldn’t resist this way too funny take on Glenn Beck and the rest of the right-wing radio talker crowd. It’s almost enough to make us forget that Disney, in our estimation, is on the wrong side of the culture wars. It’s almost enough to make us yearn for the days when Uncle Walt visited us in our living rooms each and every Sunday night. We were younger then, and much more naive… httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfuwNU0jsk0

Today’s Video: Palin Plans World Takeover

This way too cute video is a parody of Sarah Palin, Larry King, the music business and politics. Oddly enough, this animated Palin, meant to poke fun, comes off as much more intelligent that the real Sarah we’ve all learned to love to hate. And Larry King, he hasn’t looked this young since… Come to think of it, he’s never looked this young. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1IL61unNULE

Tea Party Television on CBS

The ends justify the means. At least that’s the message I’m getting from two new cop shows on CBS, both of which indicate it’s ok for law enforcement to step on every constitutional right, so long as charges stick and society is protected. It’s as if the Strike Team on The Shield is suddenly a shining example of good, effective police work. Friday night, the Tiffany Network premiered Blue Bloods, the new Tom Selleck vehicle. A character driven police drama revolving around a family of New York City cops, the […]

Today’s Video: Tommorow Belongs to the Tea Party?

First watch this famous scene from the movie Cabaret, which needs no explanation: httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LNMVMNmrqJE&start=20 We were reminded of this scene when we saw the real-life scene from a recent Tea Party rally that follows:
