Vick’s crime seems minor compared to atrocities in Iraq
September 12, 2007
Though he’s subject to the miserable and unsupportable delusion that “democracy without capitalism is not possible,” I want to agree with Tipton Taylor (“Vick no worse than other stars,” Aug. 29) regarding the misplaced Michael Vick melodrama. Even so, I think I can do Taylor several better: the whole ...
9/11 mystery for humankind
April 05, 2006
The more we do to you, the less you seem to believe we are doing it.
— Joseph Mengele, Nazi scientist
Americans don’t love a good mystery. We prefer an action drama with an explosive, reassuring ending, even though it’s nuclear.
In some ways, 9/11 is the most ...
U.S. actions upset even Christ
March 15, 2006
It does seem that Christ would face mob or at least state violence if he chose to return to America, in these times.
There was justifiable censorship in the last column. I had suggested that if the prophet Yeshua were to preach openly in modern America, he could be attacked ...
America creates its problems
March 01, 2006
There’s no recourse but to write you. Bill Frist won’t respond and things have gotten wildly out of hand here: My homeland, the United States, is united only in viciousness and imbecility. (Otherwise we are a selfish, atomized, reptilian breed.)
We disagree among us, but owing ...
Republicans caught in sex ring
February 16, 2006
Two days before George H.W. Bush became president in 1988, some of the foulest dirty laundry imaginable began to air in Nebraska.
The FBI raided the offices of Lawrence “Larry” E. King, a black Republican of some notoriety throughout the 1980s. He was the greatest black fund-raiser and vote-wrangler ...
Americans need to wake up
February 01, 2006
One of the least happy feelings I have ever experienced is the odd paralysis of waking up from a nightmare. Surely you sympathize: The beast or the terrorist or the narrowly educated Republican is howling at your heels, and while you know that it is not exactly a real fright ...
9/11 truth found on Internet
December 06, 2005
The Internet saved me from being a typical American with a turnip or smaller fruit for a brain. I was rotting away, without enough accessible information, until the Web came along, the solitary act of goodness ever committed by the Pentagon.
Like believing all the terrorists have brown skin and ...
Ignorance complicates 9/11
November 22, 2005
An English professor, a senior in accounting and a playful law student have all had their criticisms printed but only the first merits a kind of apology or a clarification in defense.
The arguments said to belong to the two students must be treated as the egregious rubbish statements they ...
Stocks reveal true 9-11 causes
November 08, 2005
“The U.S. government has consistently blamed me for being behind every occasion its enemies attack it. I would like to assure the world that I did not plan the recent attacks, which seems to have been planned by people for personal reasons. I have been living in the Islamic ...
Logic, data connect U.S. to 9/11
October 25, 2005
“I can state: The planning of the attacks was technically and organizationally a master achievement. To hijack four huge airplanes within a few minutes and within one hour, to drive them into their targets, with complicated flight maneuvers! This is unthinkable, without years-long support from secret apparatuses of the state ...
9/11 produced by vast conspiracy
October 11, 2005
“Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe,” Frederick Douglass, a 19th century abolitionist, said.
“The arts of power ...
Some conspiracies truly exist
September 27, 2005
“No people can be great who have ceased to be virtuous,” Samuel Johnson, British writer, said.
“It appears that a criminal syndicate is running the American people’s government,” U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, said.
Let me explain one thing: I have a rational and sufficiently able mind. I don ...
Disaster unveils social problems
September 13, 2005
It’s doubtful that the majority of Americans will ever swallow the lessons of Hurricane Katrina, though a lot of poor children were forced to do as much. Operation Honest Mistake, my fellow ‘Murricans, like Iraq and 9-11. Nobody could have imagined, not a single government soul; and Wal-Mart is ...
Nation should really ‘wake up’
August 30, 2005
There’s an informal tradition of offering advice in the first column of fall semester in a college newspaper. Sadly, this is often only the first installment.
It’s unpleasant being lectured by college seniors and other fledglings, but you will cut us slack, those of us deserving it, because ...
‘Over There’ hides war’s reality
August 05, 2005
“Today we see the results of this system run amok. Executives at our most respected companies hire people at near-slave wages to toil under inhuman conditions in Asian sweatshops. Oil companies wantonly dump toxins into rain forest rivers, consciously killing people, animals, and plants, and committing genocide among ancient cultures ...
