Michele Bachmann was the breakout star of the Republican Primary debate

Posted on 06/17/2011 12:28:27 PM

Watching the Republican debate on CNN last night it occurred to me that there were a lot of similarities here with a regular scripted show. All of the candidates had obviously spent a lot of time preparing with their advisors, carefully rehearsing their positions on a range of issues. ...

Political predictions they got wrong (No20) An end to boom and bust

Posted on 06/17/2011 12:27:31 PM

There’s a very old joke that goes something like this, “How do you make God laugh?”, the punchline is ”Tell him your future plans”. Despite the fact that predicting the future is as about as easy as sailing the Atlantic in a barrel, politicians never ...

Whose Trust Is It Anyway

Posted on 06/14/2011 04:06:17 AM

It has been four weeks off the air - but one doubts if any piece of history has been missed waiting to sprout. Sundry stories of 'human interest' - that quaint journalistic quirk - have jostled for mindspace with a strangely muted run-up to the Olympics and quintessential theatrics of a US presidential ...

You can still be mad with Obama, even though he inherited a mess

Posted on 06/04/2011 01:46:33 PM

Popular rhetoric I have witnessed quite often is this: since Obama inherited a mess, one can either not be angry with him/be nearly as angry with him.   For me, this approach is both logically unsound, and an example of not supporting dissent. One should not, and should not have, expected Obama ...

The youth’s lack of political thought

Posted on 06/04/2011 01:38:34 PM

A negative trend has stuck its face at me; the younger generation [Canada, other nations if relatable] lacks opportunity to learn political thought, and thus many remain ignorant.   Yes, we had the measly course of social studies when we were young, and yes we took a half credit course in civics, ...

President Obama Nazi By Delwyn Lounsbury - THE DEFLATION GURU Don’t look now, but your tax dollars are paying for a new online media czar whose job is to help President Obama’s re-election.   President Obama Nazi policies continue with this addition of the post of “Director ...

G8 Summit - Club of professional cover-up

Posted on 05/31/2011 01:33:21 AM

  Should anyone beleive, that the new G-8 Summit expected this time from actual results or ideas, will be totally disappointed too. The 37th times invite the self-proclaimed Club Members to rendezvous France after, and since this event is primarily a media marketing of the actors themselves, this ...

Coverage of female football in the UK

Posted on 02/10/2011 01:18:02 PM

I just heard on BBC Radio Nottingham this morning that the local women’s football team, Forest Ladies, are in financial difficulties due to a lack of sponsorship. They owe a total of five thousand pounds and it strikes me as ludicrous if one of the most successful women’s sports ...

Political predictions they got wrong (No8) Igor Panarin predicts the collapse of the USA

Posted on 02/10/2011 01:16:58 PM

Political predictions can be based on wishful thinking as much as hard empirical evidence, and sometimes a mixture of both. The latter is probably the case with Igor Panarin’s work. For those of you who don’t know, Panarin is a well known Russian academic who in 1998 predicted ...
