Protest Signs for Stewart/Colbert Rallies


Fans of Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are hard at work coming up with ideas for protest signs. Some of the best I saw in the article for the Stewart rally are:

  • “I Support Reasonable Conclusions Based On Supported Facts”
  • “If You Can Read This, You’re Obviously Not Home-Schooled”
  • “Protest Signs Are An Ineffectual Means Of Communicating My Nuanced Views On A Variety Of Issues That Cannot Be Reduced To A Simple Pithy Slogan”

And for the Colbert rally:

  • “Affordable Health Care Is Exactly The Same Thing As Stalinism”
  • “Down With This Sort of Thing”

Inspiring work!

“The Wave”

the-wave-150x125Someone posted a link to this video on Twitter recently. I saw it when it first came out back in the ’70’s. Powerful stuff.

The movie “The Wave” is based on a novel by Morton Rhue and is based on a true story that happend in 1967 at Gordon High School in Palo Alto. The teacher starts an experiment with his students trying to show them how the Nazi regime was able to invluence so many people and why no one stopped them. […]

McCain’s Palin-drome

Now, before I get rolling, let me say that I really used to like John McCain. He was on the Daily Show quite often and his interviews were always refreshing, honest, and up-beat. That was until Bush couldn’t run for another term and the GOP decided that McCain was their guy.

Since then, he’s become more and more Bush-esque – right down to the verbal incoherence. After watching McCain present himself eloquently and with charm for years he now looks confused, uncomfortable, and rehearsed. […]

Our President has signed into law (in a private closed-door ceremony) Public Law 109-364, or the “John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007” (H.R.5122) (2). This act allows the President to declare a “public emergency” and station troops anywhere in America and take control of state-based National Guard units without the consent of the governor or local authorities, in order to “suppress public disorder.”

The legislation is available online here, so I figured it was worth taking a look. […]

Mel Gibson – The Year of Living Stupidly

Mel Gibson MugshotFor starters, I think Mel Gibson has done some great movies. Not just as an actor, but as producer and director as well. “Braveheart” and “We Were Soldiers” come to mind.

But when he did “The Passion” and then he and his dad went on this anti-semitic rant about how the Holocaust was exagerated, well, I lost interest in ole Mel as an actor and as a human being. I’m old enough to have met people who had those tattoos that the Nazi’s put on people in the camps. […]
