The 2nd Amendment is a tricky thing. Usually understood to pertain to the rights of US Citizens to own guns, this fundamental American Right is one of the most fiercely debated issues in the country. Gun Control advocates claim that the widespread availability of guns makes the United States (and the world in general) a [...]
“what color paper?”, you ask. of course you would ask that, because you’re obviously a filthy despicable racist. and that’s just it. the debate thus far about Resident Evil 5, Capcom’s latest release in the venerable survival-horror-zombie-killfest videogame franchise (which has also spawned a hugely successful movie series), has little or nothing to do with [...]
…and welcome to observulsion 2.0 now we shall see what we shall see.
just for the record: 2007 has been the deadliest year so far for US forces in Iraq. 2007 has been the deadliest year so far for Coalition forces in Iraq. – 2007 has been the deadliest year so far for US forces in Afghanistan. 2007 has been the deadliest year so far for Coalition forces [...]
two quick things. because everybody’s going to have, and likely already has had, something to say about this fiasco. first there’s the recent revelation that FEMA held a fake news conference on Oct. 23, in which FEMA employees posed as reporters, asking softball questions about the agency’s response to the California fires. whitehouse spokeschick Dana Perino [...]
CNN’s Michael Ware suuuure is controversial, and frankly i’m shocked that CNN hasn’t abandoned him in Baghdad (yet). no, he hasn’t been drawing maps in the sand to give away troop locations. he hasn’t been maligning Retired members of the US Military. he’s been reporting the ground truth from Iraq, since before the war even began. and [...]

anna nicole smith died on Thursday. on that same day, a US airstrike killed 13 ‘militants’ west of Baghdad. great, right? well, sure – until you find out that the same airstrike also killed up to 45 civilians. that’s 45 CIVILIANS – women, children, etc… what? you hadn’t heard about that story, because of the minute-by-minute ‘breaking [...]
Gentlemen… BEHOLD! – wait, i mean …Spacecataz… o my freaking god… if ever an event could shake me from four months of braindeath, rekindle the flickering embers of chaos and more importantly convince me to sit here for a second and type out a few words, it is this. the biggest rush of exuberant joy [...]
