End Capitalism Now

Evo Morales, the Bolivian president, calls for the end of capitalism. Clearly we are wasting the planet away. Redesigning our markets and companies will not cut it, we cannot buy ourselves out of trouble with more efficiënt products. This time around we need a revolution of all the people. The words "we're screwed" come to mind...

The age of unreason

Susan Jacoby and Stephen Colbert analyze the age of unreason. As it turns out, watching tv all the time and not reading any books at all is making/keeping humanity retarded.

Help, we're in the Dark Ages again. Anyone got a light?

Idiots and the bitter elite

Bill Maher's New Rules. I have absolutely nothing to add...

Is your momma a whore? No disrespect...

Jon Stewart explains exactly what was wrong with ABC's 'debate': the moderators.

George Stephanopolus and Charlie Gibson were an absolute disgrace, asking one ridiculous question after another. The lunacy was not in the subject of the questions, rather in the phrasing of them.

"I would like to ask Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopolus why their debate sucked. I'm not questioning their journalism, it f** sucked!"

Proud to be elite and caring....

What a week it's been for American politics. Earlier we had Cheney doing a stand-up routine on the current political issues, now we have John Edwards doing Stephen Colbert's "The Word".

Maybe it's me but, again, no word whatsoever about the war that cost 3 trillion in tax payer dollars, 4000 in American soldiers and all of the goodwill the US had after 9/11. Even the pope (!) said during his visit to the US that most problems of humanity would be solved if only we solve human rights issues. Although that is probably true, it is easier said than actually fixing the debacle that is called Iraq and the war crimes and other injustices behind it.

Darth Vader does stand-up comedy

Dick Cheney can read! We should use it against him. Too bad he avoids the war. Maybe he considered it not funny.

Go Fox yourself

John Oliver with a brilliant summary of the "fair and balanced" Fox 'News'-approach:

Clinton?! Bad! Bush?! Good! Democrat?! Bad! Republican?! Good! People?! Bad! Companies?! Good! Taxes?! Bad! War?! Good!.... please do carry on.

Tell-lie-vision rules the nation

Phil Donahue hits Hannity where it hurts: terrorism.

Hannity brought up plenty of nonsense as usual: "...totalitarian communism was evil...". Hate to break it to you, Sean, but there's no such thing as totalitarian communism. Certainly the West has never seen much communism in any true meaning of the word. Socialism might have been inspired by it and improved things a great deal, but it's a sorry substitute for the basic underpinnings of communist thought.

Hillary laughs off her lapse of reason



Chris Matthews: "I'm not sure people will go for that"... No kidding, Chris.

Beer vs weed: the case for marijuhana



Andrew Daly makes the best case against drinking beer. May the potsmokers find comfort in the fact that they're less annoying than the beerdrinkers, which was certainly not news to me.
