He's a jerk, one of oldest theories is to have peace, prepare for war. Feeding and education the world is a socialist theory and flies in the face of common sense; we are a nation of 300 million people, only a fool would think we could feed and educate the 6 billion in other nations.

@ Vernon Clayson--

Bill Hicks made MILLIONS of strangers laugh. Have you?

Bill Hicks remains the only comedian who had an entire bit cut from David Letterman's show--for which Letterman issued a manly apology to Hicks posthumously, on air, before Hicks' mother, who ministered who HIcks while he was dying of pancreatic cancer. You ever been wrongly censored, Vern?

Bill Hicks had entire routines lifted--plagiarized wholesale--by Denis Leary, a coward. Everyone in the comedy business knows it. Leary's been confronted with it, publicly, but has too much milque toast in his blood to come clean. Leary's theft continues to this day.

Bill Hicks was ahead of his time--he adored Jimi Hendrix--but was cut down at the age of 32. Thirty-two, Vern. How old are you?

Before you defile this space with your ignorant opinions about someone being "a jerk," why don't you extract your head from your ass and do a little research first.

Simple request. Got it, bud?

Cheyenne, actually I've been in positions where my correspondence was censored but that was far more serious information than someone's attempt at humor. I'm somewhat older than this so-called comedian, of whom I had never heard of until this article. If this is an example of his humor, what was it called, macabre, and I've never even heard of Dennis Leary. Were they comedians like Joe Biden and that merry band that surrounds Barack Obama?

@Vernon Clayson
I don't have time to laugh at Obama & Biden. I'm still looking for that COMEDIAN G.W.BUSH'S WEAPONS of MASS DESTRUCTION.
If you have time I could use the help.

As I recall, Saddam Hussein killed hundreds of Kurds in Iraq with powder puffs, the lethal kind. He may have had only limited precursors for developing nuclear weapons but he had noxious gases that to most of the world are considered WMD. You spoke earlier of research, a little of that would reveal to you that most of the Clinton administration was convinced that Hussein had WMD and announced it publicly. Clinton taught the terrorists a lesson, he permitted our military to shoot a missile at an aspirin factory that killed the night watchman.

Wonder this holds up?......@ TR

Like one person had said, just becouse its now OK, dosent mean the police wont come after you like they did in one town. Where the people were in a meeting and the cops gave out 12" from curb and harassed the people.

So I myself would think twice. Yes it may be leagle now, but the guy with a badge can and will make your life a Living Hell..........!

Taxpayers may foot bill to shore up vulnerable coastal town



The new homes, which stuck farther out on the beach than any other seaside houses, gave landowners a shorter walk to the surf and a better view of the Atlantic Ocean.

But the seashore in front of their homes eroded years later. And last weekend, a hurricane that didn't even hit South Carolina sent waves crashing against those same houses.

Now, homeowners are relying on millions of dollars in taxpayer-funded renourishment projects to protect their homes from the encroaching sea.

"Management is now trying to hide their compensation from the business owners — the firm’s shareholders.

Making matters even more outrageous, these CEOs are trying to pass legislation that would legally allow them to not to disclose executive compensation at public companies"


Anyone who thinks upper management has earned the right to mulct both shareholders and workers should consider Yves' post this morning, a case study demonstrating that at best such overcompensated CEO's are utterly incompetent.

The Price of 9/11



America’s military spending still nearly equals that of the rest of the world combined, two decades after the end of the Cold War. Some of the increased expenditures went to the costly wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the broader Global War on Terrorism, but much of it was wasted on weapons that don’t work against enemies that don’t exist. .....

......the price paid in getting to this point, in the US and elsewhere, has been enormous – and mostly avoidable. The legacy will be with us for a long time. It pays to think before acting.

Unfortunately, I got sick this weekend with the flu. This is the first time I have been sick in 6 or 7 years and had almost forgotten how debilitating it can be. I will attempt to return to posting later this morning. I appreciate everyone's patience.

Get well DAMNIT! We're commenters are tired of running this site.

John, "thinking before acting" is very well for individuals with little imagination but the current wars are more than the finances involved. There are ideologies and differences far more important than the money and lives being spent, war is the best answer when dealing with unreasonable and unyielding people. Our error might be that we are fighting the lower peoples of their society while excusing the leaders and financiers, but it's almost always been that way. And vice-versa, our soft leaders dwell in power and pelf while the young and strong fight and die at their behest. If you listened to Obama's one-millionth (it seems) speech yesterday, September 5th, you heard a union leader, from the near-iconic Hoffa dynasty, demand that Obama take us SOBs out and then you heard Obama tell us, "Let's see what you got." Violent words from safe at home leaders but the critics of all things military would condemn the same language directed at our mortal enemies from a soldier, Marine, airman or sailor. No, John, the issue isn't military expenditures, it's craven political greed. .
Sep 6, 2011 at 2:34 PM | Unregistered CommenterVernon Clayson
Vernon, I beg to differ. Finances are the crux of all wars with oil and central banking currently being the foremost issues. People with "little imagination" are incapable of thinking. The psychopaths in charge use ideology as an excuse to rally those who have neither the life experience or synaptic ability to deal with options reasonably and have narcissistic ideas of grandeur or worse.The current world conflict (as well as past ones) is monetary and in certain instances religion is being used as the ideology but it is financial and resource based.

TR, stop speaking in cliches, Eisenhower said that but as the WWII European Theater Commander he was the beneficiary of American Industrial productivity in amounts unknown to the time. Despite what the liberal socialists say, one of the primary responsibilities of the federal government is nation defense and it has to rely on industry, they are not equipped to manufacture weapons of war, they can cause wars, they can direct wars, they can soft-pedal wars as they do at present but they cannot manufacture aircraft, tanks, ships, etc. Don't say they fund them, we taxpayers fund them and I prefer military spending to socialist programs like Obamacare which will dwarf military spending in damned short order. John, your argument is a bit off, WWII wasn't fought to make money, we were drawn into it through world political machinations, industry was energized in response to attacks on us, no nation's industry has ever responded in the same fashion. Surely you understand that the workers had to be paid, America isn't geared to use slave labor like our enemies. Speaking of our enemies, they fought well enough but there was no way they could match our industrial strength, WWII is a perfect example of Military and Industrial cooperation, we should hope not to repeat the necessity but we should keep it in mind..

@Vernon Clayson ,

I'm having a problem understanding: 94% of all federal income tax revenue is equivalent to what we spend on the Pentagon.
This is not simple enough for me.
Sep 6, 2011 at 8:42 PM | Unregistered CommenterTR
TR, where'd you dream up that ridiculous figure? The government is in debt over 14 trillion dollars, the only absolutely worthwhile and necessary program in that is the national defense. Don't think of it as a drain, it's not exactly the same as all of the other expenses.
Sep 6, 2011 at 8:56 PM | Unregistered CommenterVernon Clayson
@Vernon Clayson
Apparently you did not read the link & then prove the figure incorrect.


Speaking of cliches, Did you write "socialist programs"? That's as old as mine.
Sep 6, 2011 at 9:50 PM | Unregistered CommenterTR
TR, socialism as theory and in practice is older than anyone living while I easily remember Eisenhower as a General and as President. He had a bearing from his military career that carried over into his presidency, he didn't have to speak every day as Obama does to show he was the president. Obama could live several lifetimes and still not acquire gravitas. Socialism's other name is liberal Democrat and it's nickname is failure. Truman and then Eisenhower were my Commanders in Chief, both were great men.
Sep 6, 2011 at 10:40 PM | Unregistered CommenterVernon Clayson
Vern, Damn! We're having fun now. I like how everyone uses Socialism in their own context. Well here mine. If anyone receives any money in any form from the govt. that I don't receive while I'm paying taxes then they are a SOCIALIST. ALL GOVT. FUNDS come from those nasty SOCIALIST TAX DOLLARS.

I'm going to try & get on some of these programs.

I can't believe someone hasn't told me to SHUT UP.
If i keep this up DB will put me in TIME OUT.
Sep 6, 2011 at 11:11 PM | Unregistered CommenterTR
You're wrong again, the government has no funds except what it takes from taxpayers and fees for service and borrowing, all of which are out of control. They also print money which lessens the value of the money printed before, a dollar today buys what a nickel did 80 years ago. We are a socialist nation already, you should be happy, I'm retired but still pay taxes and the cost of my socialist Medicare is taken from my SS benefit. It's convoluted but the Democrats have been starting programs since FDR that promise much but the geniuses failed to think beyond signing the bills. The old socialist FDR apparently presumed the economy of the 1930s would remain static and paying for SS would not be a burden either on the person or the nation. He was wrong. The more recent socialist LBJ thought the same thing about Medicare and Medicaid and both are on the verge of failure - he was wrong, and today's socialists believe that Obamacare will be affordable forever and ever. They are wrong.
