Pat Buchanan: Sexist, Racist, Nazi Sympathizer, AND Msnbc Analyst

Pat Buchanan is a very controversial figure. He worked in the Nixon and Reagan administrations and has since been a very vocal pundit on behalf of the extreme right wing of the Republican Party. Throughout his long career, he has been a presidential candidate, advisor, political speaker, analyst, and an author. But throughout that career, he has also been a sexist, racist, and a Nazi sympathizer.

Can a Democratic Leopard Change Its Spots to Republican?

Arguably, the most striking aspect of Gov. Rick Perry is the vast amount of Texas, political machismo that oozes from his GOP/Tea Party pores. He soared into the race for GOP nominee and continued to soar as he perched himself at the top of the pile; doing it so effortlessly that he almost made it look automatic. But as we all know from our sorted, political history, the past has an uncanny, gravitational way of pulling things back down to earth.

Al-Qaeda to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: Shut Up, Fool!

Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, is so prone to spouting lies about people and history that few if any literate citizens of the world take what he has to say seriously any more. The only remaining question many of us have about President Loonie-Tunes: is he really that stupid as to believe the nonsense coming out of his mouth, or, is he just very lame at the propaganda shtick?

New York Times Blatantly Edits Article About Occupy Wall Street To Protect Police (IMAGE)

Today police in New York City allowed protesters from the Occupy Wall Street rallies to march onto the Brooklyn Bridge. Shortly after they arrested hundreds of protesters for blocking traffic on the bridge, even though they’d allowed them to enter it. The New York times published an article on their website, explaining the true nature of what had happened. 20 minutes later they had changed it, to make it seem like the police had no blame in this incident.

The Patriot Act in Effect

The Patriot Act in Effect

I am sorry but I believe that the drone attack on Al-Alwaki and Samir Khan was wrong. Both of these men were American citizens and should have been taken alive and given a fair trial. But of course this is the Patriot Act in effect which gives the president the right to declare any American citizen an enemy combatant.

Right before they stormed the bridge!

Eyewitness Account To The Brooklyn Bridge Arrests

If a couple of thousand people shut down a major metropolitan bridge and there are no news crews does it still count? You’re damn right it does!

But he discovered his Achilles heel last May when a determined group of disgruntled citizens collected over 10,000 valid signatures in his district to force another election this November. To his great annoyance, Senator Pearce had been recalled.

Then, after awhile, you realize that mixed in with the ice cream, there is a sizable chunk of dogsh$t.’

US Medication Shortage Accidental Or Scam?

US Medication Shortage Accidental Or Scam?

The USA and a couple of advanced countries, chiefly the UK and Australia, have been experiencing an ongoing severe shortage of prescribed medications. Most of the drugs in short supply are injectable, such as cancer drugs or medications that are needed in the emergency room to save lives. Obviously this shortage is putting innocent lives at risk, in addition to forcing hospitals to buy medications from black market suppliers at additionally marked up prices.
