Ukraine: Rhetoric, Reality, and Division

Here we are, just days beyond my last post on Ukraine. The truce agreement did not even last 1 day. So what has really transpired since the (then) government signed agreements with the opposition leaders? Depends on whom you listen to. The Russian news is rife with propaganda to convince their people that Ukrainians are in danger from “right-wing extremists” and […]

Freedom of the Press

We can believe what we get from our press, yes? Americans overwhelming get their information from the Western news media because we have “freedom of the press.” Despite what people think, US news is biased towards reporting what gets viewers or readers, and in part by what the US government is involved in. In 2014, the “freedom” of the US […]

Truce in Ukraine: Peace or Temporary Cease Fire

I am glad to see that Victor Yanukovych has finally taken decisive action in Ukraine. Although it is late in coming, and not what many expected, at least it is done. He has agreed to elections by December. This is really a defeat for democracy, as elections are to occur in 2015 anyway. A country seeking true democracy, as protesters say […]

Genius or Troll: Educated Ignorance

My last two posts have drawn the ire of a supposed Mensan. After my first post, he labeled me a “conspiracy nut” and after the second post he called me arrogant over my evaluation of the situation in Ukraine. He is “offended” because he is (supposedly) a Mensan and my post made reference to people who were educated but ignorant. I wasn’t […]

Clarifications on DC in Flames and Ukraine

For those who did not bother to read the post, it was a parody on the situation in Ukraine and not a “conspiracy theory” on the US. As I said in that post… think, people. Use your brain. I do see that CNN is […]

D.C. In Flames: Obama Hires Thugs to Shoot Federal Police

Dateline: Washington D.C. Over the past 12 weeks, peaceful protesters have gathered in Washington D.C. to protest against President Obama signing a free trade agreement with Canada, and for refusing to sign a free trade agreement with Iran. Obama has hired an armed group of guerrillas from a Colombian drug cartel to pretend they are protesters. Their assigned job is […]

News Reports: Objective or Biased?

It seems there is an overwhelming belief that the news outlets in the US are based in “Free Speech” and, because of that, what they report to the American public is true, fairly unbiased, and not filtered by the government. Sure. This is another case of educated people remaining ignorant of what is going on around them, and believing everything […]

#SochiDogs – Biological Trash or a Western World View

I am a dog lover. I have never been able to live without a canine companion by my side. As such, I had interest when I ran across Chris Hall’s article “Our Message to Sochi: Dogs Are Not Biological Trash” about the Twitter hashtag #SochiDogs. As I read the article, and the linked articles, the thought that came to mind […]
