What Actually Is Torture

June 1, 2009

Since late in President Bush’s second term, the argument has raged over what actually constitutes torture. Now as President Obama and Congress move to close Guantanamo Bay, arguments have become even more energetic. While I did, and still do, hold the position that waterboarding and sleep deprivation are not torture, I didn’t have any facts, […]

I’ll Send a Stern Fax

April 13, 2009

North Korea’s recent test of their long range missile launching capabilities (yes, that is what it was) demonstrate once again why we can’t expect the international community to fight our battles, even if they are necessary. But our brave President has done something revolutionary, something that will stop our enemies in their tracks. He gave […]

Ahead to the Past

November 24, 2008

After every presidential election, many smaller elections take place. But in these elections, only one person gets a vote, the president-elect.

Did the Republicans just dig Themselves a Hole?

September 7, 2008

I was surprised by the amount of controversy the Republicans bashing Obama’s time as a community organizer has caused. I thought about adding Palin’s quote to “Oops” He says (which could have been unfortunate because I would have had to change the titile to: “oops” he/she said), but I decided not to on account of the smallness of the effect […]

What to do with the Stars and Bars

August 13, 2008

Picture this: to groups of men, one in blue, the other in a tattered gray. They both drop to fire, and the flag on both sides drops, the bearers shot dead. When the units break into hand-to-hand fighting, the flags are at the center, dropping as the previous bearer dies, only to be caught by […]
