Retired Justice William A. Stone

January 31st, 2006 · No Comments

Retired Justice William Stone passed away Saturday. The world has lost a good, kind and fair judge. The first case I ever argued in court was before Justice Stone. At the time — hard to believe it was more than a year ago now — I was intimidated not just because I was going to […]

Subverting Lawyers & Law in the Bush Administration

January 30th, 2006 · No Comments

A friend sent me a link to an article written by Daniel Klaidman, Stuart Taylor Jr. and Evan Thomas of Newsweek. The article caught my attention because it wasn’t the usual story about the Bush Administration shutting down liberals who had somehow managed to sneak into government jobs — you know, those pesky idiot scientists, […]

This may be one of the best political columns I’ve ever read.

California: U.S. Supreme Court Irrelevant

January 25th, 2006 · No Comments

I haven’t written much lately. The main reason is, as usual, my workload. Normally my sense of outrage over what’s happening to our nation would overcome that drawback and I would write anyway. However, the thing which concerns me the most — the potential destruction of our way of life once the right-wing is firmly […]

Taking My Name In Vain

January 15th, 2006 · 2 Comments

Well, I’m pissed this morning. Seems that there’s some hick out there who is creating confusion with my name. And Starbucks is behind it. The irony of it is that this hired gun makes his living working to defend the public image of corporate giant Starbucks which believes that when other people come up with […]

Americans Liberate Iraqi Journalist’s Tapes

January 12th, 2006 · No Comments

I don’t exactly know what to do with this. Anyone who thinks this is a coincidence just hasn’t been paying enough attention to the workings of our government lately. American troops in Baghdad yesterday blasted their way into the home of an Iraqi journalist working for the Guardian and Channel 4, firing bullets into the […]

Terminator IV: Avoiding Judgment Day

January 11th, 2006 · No Comments

Alright, first off, let’s clear something out of the way. Arnold Schwarzeneggar recently was found to be driving a motorcycle without a license. Big deal. Seriously, considering everything else going on in the world today, it’s really a small thing. And I don’t intend to try here to make a big thing out of it. […]

Unaccountability

January 8th, 2006 · 1 Comment

Apparently, the Bush Administration has learned nothing from Hurricane Katrina. I had some hope early on that this failure of theirs would stir a hurricane of its own. But after recent revelations that the President has ordered illegal spying — something which even stirred both houses of Congress to finally try to limit his power […]

Cause of Death: G-d

January 6th, 2006 · No Comments

Apparently, the only people who die these days are people G-d hates. How do I know this? Because Pat Robertson said so. As some of our more astute readers — you two know who you are — are aware, Israel’s Prime Minister Ariel Sharon recently had a stroke and is said to be in a […]

A Whiney Post

January 5th, 2006 · No Comments

I figured I better post something up here, so people won’t think I’ve just shut down the blog. I haven’t. I’m still extremely discouraged by the fact that my log files showed an average of 250 visitors per day before I tried to move the blog to Aplus.Net hosting and now, after that fiasco which […]
