Chris Christie is a bully, a thug, a crook and a shameless opportunist. We all know that now. What is significant is that ordinary people outside New Jersey finally get what New Jersey people have been saying for years. This reality check has shattered his personal mythology.

Ban American football?

by DisgruntledCurmudgeon

The question of whether or not to ban this senseless, brutal sport should be a no-brainer, but it's not. The economics and social dynamics that cause this to even be an issue reveal a lot about our nation's culture. It's not just about football; it's about everything.

Why does this matter? Isn't everything just fine in Puerto Rico just the way it is? No. Puerto Ricans want change. They're just not sure what form it should take.

Are you as tired of munchkin TV as I am? How people watch their spiffy new widescreen TVs is an indicator not only of how savvy they are technically, but an indicator of intellectual development and the capacity for critical thinking. It also sheds some light on their political views.

The term Grand Old Party (GOP) is an affectionate moniker for the Republican Party that was originated by supporters of that party around 1874. It is not appropriate to use that nickname unless you like them, or are a member of that party.

My September 11, 2001

by DisgruntledCurmudgeon

Everyone remembers exactly where they were and what they were doing when they first heard about the airplanes crashing into buildings. Those details, however mundane, are forever burned into one's memory. Sharing those memories helps me cope with the horror of that day. It may do little or nothing for you, but that's not the point of catharsis.

Explaining things to people who don't know what you're talking about isn't easy, but it can be done. We can generalize about political advocacy directed at the masses by analyzing how to transmit other kinds of information to those who have little or no context for the topic at hand.

Mainly, it's more than you want to know about the Arabic language. I'd best hurry with this before they catch him and no one cares even as little as they do now about this stuff. It may come in handy, though, when you read about the end game of the strongmen in Syria and Yemen.

Osama bin Laden's dead. Is it OK to focus on something else now, like maybe something I care about? I'm obsessed with health care and I think temp body shops should be outlawed. The issues are closely linked.
