    Hendrix,I knew that was wrong, but spell check isn’t cool either! How will I feel at 60? It’s only two years away, I’ll feel like running. I love to run.

They still sell soft drinks high in corn syrup. Candy, snack foods, along with over the counter medicines of questionable value, but the company is adamant in [...]

    Thumbnail A Facebook meme pictured a sign, “We are out of French Frizes.” Underneath was the comment, “This guy wants $15.00 per hour.” We’re taught and conditioned each day to hate our fellow-man. If the minimum wage were indexed to inflation, the current minimum wage would be around $22.00 per hour. Of course, we can’t do [...]

    Correct, but it isn’t just the oil. When you stick your credit / debit card in the pump! It’s petro-dollars, the dollar as the world’s reserve currency we’re fighting for. It’s as more about the bank than just about the oil.

    ThumbnailBy David Glenn Cox This fairy tale begins with “Once upon a time.” All the best fairy tales begin with “Once upon a time.” It seems however, the practice has fallen out of favor, especially among broadcast news circles; which routinely tell stories far more fantastical than talking frogs, glass slippers or poisoned apples, without even [...]

    You should see me dance or shouldn’t see me dance, the last time a tried paramedics wrestled me to the ground and forced a tongue depressor down my throat. The bartender cut me off and I hadn’t ordered anything yet!

    Thumbnail      I’ve spent two days in the dentist’s office recently. A tooth of mine had defected from my employment, making its demands known through the most outrageous protest and misconduct. Anyone who knows anything about the dentist’s office is well aware of the dangers of the chair. That time spent waiting patiently as a [...]

    You know what is really sad, with the Corvair you has to lose control. With the side saddle gas tanks, someone had to hit you first, before it would explode, same with the Pinto. In this case, just driving the car bumping the ignition switch and your dead.

    Obviously, the system is broken. Obama supports every Neoliberal wet dream Idea ever imagined and yet we’re supposed to fear a Republican take over, when the Republicans have already taken over by calling themselves Democrats. Obama is the first American President in history to keep all of his opponents campaign promises. The other day Hillary Clinton said something about Restoring the American dream for middle class Americans, pardon my French but FU! “How many times do you have to get hit over the head until you figure out who’s hitting you.” ~ Harry Truman

    What George W. Bush did to the Republican Party, Barack Obama has done to the Democratic Party. Two wings of one Capitalist Party
