Jon Stewart, Dan Patrick and Drones Love Obama!

There is no love greater than that of a drone for an American President, we just need to keep our killer drones in the Middle East terrorizing the people there not here. The troops who man those are heroes you see. Like snipers. Two beheadings are bad, but 100 executions are fine. Our snipers and…

Key & Peele Obama & Luther Address the Critics NSFW

Key and Peele’s skits with Luther the Anger Translator always give me the hope that one day, our patient, polite President will leap from his chair, or  podium and go ‘full Luther’ on the deserving.  For now, we have only the fictional Luther to express what must be going on behind Obama’s calm demeanor.  In…

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Drones & Balls

John Oliver takes the joy right out of the drone program for fans of the stealth weapons of indiscriminate destruction. Oddly, many Americans are widely accepting of drone strikes – on other countries, although we know very little about the program or what it actually does…A case of absence and ignorance making the heart a…

LA Sheriff drone shot down by Hockey fans

Not too long ago I was commenting upon the story that Amazon may soon be delivering packages by drones.  I wondered how many would actually make it to their destination without being shot down by gun enthusiasts. This story helps make that point though in this case it was t shirt enthusiasts who did the…

Smart bombs and smart girls, Lukovich cartoon

There is some unpopular pragmatism. Smart women create more democracy and drones work. Here in America it is not so much smart women, but smart people we don’t like. After all, they tell us many things we don’t like hearing. How much power does the media have?  In the early 2000s about 10% of us…

Texas flaw in Jeff Bezos drones delivery project

After hearing endless examples of why the drone delivery idea put forward by Jeff Bezos of Amazon would not work, I mentioned that all the examples about the FAA and such were superfluous compared to it having no chance of working in Texas as it would be just another thing to shoot. No tongue in…

The Drone Race, Toles cartoon

This is something I have been thinking on for quite some time now.  America was once ascendent with the atom bomb. We could use it when we thought necessary, even on an enemy who had NO AIR FORCE, NO NAVY, had retreated into it’s own borders and no longer posed a threat. But it only…

Stephen Colbert, President Obama speech to end war on terror, AUMF

Of course it will be small news, but the speech the other night by Barrack Obama was the most important speech I have heard since 911.  In fact it was so well done I would hope at least the voters will move from this endless stream of Republican scandal investigations to the most serious and…

Droning on about why Muslims hate us, Bennett cartoon

  I know this is hard for most Americans, especially Republicans.  But hold your breath and imagine how you would feel if  Hindus were dropping Cruise Missiles on your pastor or priest and half a dozen innocent Christian bystanders in your town? Or Hindus sending unmanned drones to kill your preachers and Bishops and half…

American Drones cause a Boston Marathon Massacre twice a week, Nell Cartoon

  In the four years of President Obama, the CIA has used about 300 drone strikes killing about 3000 people, MOST of whom were non targets. That includes HUNDREDS of little children. But none of that counts because they are ragheads. This is that THING, one of the greatest problems with humanity, that their spies…

Mark Fiore: Rand Paul & Mr. Blasty The Drone Go To Washington

Blasty the Drone is back! This time he's taking a look at Rand Paul's filibuster and Obama's drone war at home and abroad.   Compare the inspiring Jimmy Stewart classic 'Mr. Smith Goes To Washington' and Rand Paul's campaign-launching filibuster.  Rand Paul may not put you in mind of Mr. Smith, but his filibuster  was almost…

Rand Paul, drones and black helicopters, Wuerker Cartoon

If I recall didn’t I make this point last week? How is Rand Paul’s screeching about drones taking Americans out having lunch in a Boston cafe any different than a manned drone (helicopter) doing the same thing? I suppose the answer to that is a helicopter has a person who can decide to use a…

Ted Nugent machine guns 455 pigs from manned drone on American soil

“I took my machine gun in the helicopter — in the Texas hill country – me and my buddy ‘Pigman’ … his name is ‘Pigman’ – I’m the swine czar. I killed 455 hogs with my machine gun. I did it for Bill Maher and all those other animal rights freaks out there.” Ted Nugent…

32,000 Americans killed by guns 2012, by drones 1, Morin cartoon

Guns beat drones a million to one! And the one American killed by drones was a self admitted “enemy combatant” living in Pakistan and unavailable for arrest.  In the larger picture, since 1960 we have 1.4 million Americans killed in America by Americans with guns. Drones? Still ONE. adobe flash software I have a neighbor…

Stephen Colbert: Jon Stewart takes Summer off to replace Hugo Chavez

buy oem software download Hugo Chavez is dead. He is of course much hated here in America for giving us the proverbial finger often, and for often seen shaking hands with other nations who like giving us the finger. Something America in no way deserves. LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT ASSHOLE. Chavez should probably consider…
