Jacob A. Riis, a social reformer (who was not an altogether good man, but that's not the point), once said that the poor are "the victims, not the makers, of their fate." No one would choose to be...

Racial profiling is a convenient way for the media & polity to keep everyone afraid of everything all the time. This serves the ends of the government nicely, for we are too afraid to object to its...

Unfortunately, the idea of the "rich getting richer" while "the poor get poorer" is a fundamental element of capitalism. The wealthy upper classes have siezed the means of production, so that no...

Simple: The average American doesn't like the FBI listening to his telephone conversations. Or the President starting wars to line his buddies' pockets with bloody money. Or his government lying to...

I think so. Are we talking about the same post, wherein I said that he was not the perfect candidate?

Spliff: I don't trust polls, and never have. They'll start to have a bit more meaning as we...

Snopes' explanation seems to indicate that the Saudi government paid for the private flights. Perhaps the right-wing rhetoric on the issue is a little off...?

Foaminate! Holy crud, we've got the next President on our hands here!

Anyway, Bush does need something to win the election. The 9/11 commission is exposing the truth about his horrible negligence,...

The War on Terror is a complete farce. President Bush will, no doubt, publicize bin Laden's capture a week before the election. He'll save Saddam's trial for when his poll numbers drop below a...

I staunchly oppose the war in Iraq, as I would any war. However, at this point, we're in a terrible quandary. If we leave now, anti-American ideologies will flourish and we will, no doubt, fall...

Congratulations on finding that quotation. I've always thought that ad hominem attacks are the foundation of any well-thought-out argument.

As to your attacks on Clarke's character (which, by the...

Can you shrug it off so easily? The leader of the free world (well, that's his title, at any rate) has consistently demonstrated that he cannot, or will not, make decisions on his own. This frightens...

A friend of mine Photoshopped an image of the guy dancing with George W. Bush... and grabbing his ass. I'm working on getting it released to the public.

I was curious to see a) if the poll software worked and b) what the general public opinion was. Initially, Cuatero was asking people to vote anyway... again, it's not that big a deal either way. I...

Hey everyone. Dan Shannon here. I'd like to explain a few things, which Phill will no doubt verify at some point.

First of all, I didn't break his iBook.

Second of all, I'm planning on losing...

I was talking about the cooling issue with a friend of mine today. I think the conclusion was that the PowerBook 970 will have a refrigerating unit strapped to the bottom of it :-)
