Messages from the troops to families they don't remember back home - The Onion

Ya either laugh or cry.

The Onion has produced a one minute video of the troops messages home. How does one deal with tragedy and tremendous sorrow better than with parody and satire. You have to be a little crazy to keep from going insane.

This is a message to my homosexual lover. I am so erotically homosexual that I hope nobody in the military is watching because I will be kicked out.

Will Senator Chuck Schumer support impeachment hearings?

Chuck Schumer is one of my senators from New York along with Hillary Clinton. For the most part I like Senator Schumer and I think he does a pretty good job. He strikes me as more honest and sincere than Hillary.

I have become a big fan of The Hillbillyreport which is made of James Pence videos. Jim is a funny guy. He does this brief 1 minute video on impeachment hearings. I think he nails it when he tells Senator Schumer to grow some balls.

Political sex scandals take porn into the mainstream.

It is of major interest to me that some of the best political analysis comes in the form of satire. The official news shows and pundits are so pompous, arrogant, and take themselves so seriously, it is hard to know whether a more appropriate response is to laugh or cry. And yet some of the political satire cuts though the pomposity and intellectual masturbation and is the best analysis around.

Yesterday as I was going to my office about 3:35 PM, some middle school age kids were walking home from school here in Brockport, NY. One of the boys says to the girls, as they separate to go their separate ways, "I love you!" He is shouting this at the top of his lungs which made me turn and look at them about 50 yards away. The girls laughed good naturedly, and one of them says, "I love you too, but I'm still not going to blow you!" They all laughed and went on their way, and I thought , "Golly, these kids are probably about 12, and fellatio now is loud street talk and part of bantering. And then I remembered these kids were brought up on Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky and probably have been hearing about blow jobs since they were two. Just everyday conversation. Is this a good thing or bad thing for our society?

Barely came out with a new video today entitled Political sex scandals. I find it very funny, and right on the money. It lasts about 3 minutes.

George W. Bush seems seriously out of touch with reality

It is too easy and vulgar to say that George W. Bush is a lying sack of shit. It would be more professional to say that he is delusional and psychotic. If not crazy, he is disengenous and it makes one wonder if he truly believes what he says.

When our government leaders tell us lies it is a mystifying experience which makes us wonder who is crazy, them or us? This is not good government. This is crazy making stuff.

As usual Jon Stewart on the Daily Show makes more sense than our government and/or the corporate media pundits. His video piece, Bless o Potamia lasts about 5 minutes and is worth every second. Watch it and let me know what you think.
