At least the French have balls…

With the important November elections just around the corner, the media is filled with practically nothing but politics.  BO-ring! Most times I would be caught up in election fever, but this election is different, and not because the democrats (a party that I don’t belong to by the way), will apparently lose ground… though I’m […]

Just short of Death

News coming to me from legal circles in New York, has more than strongly hinted than a super indictment has been amended to include three top ranking Jamaica Labour Party members on charges of obstruction of justice, money laundering and conspiracy. Who are they? Well let’s say if these names ever get released in the […]

The definition of madness

Yea yea.  You have all behaved like good citizens and mailed in the census forms so your interest is done.  But though I’m not going to make a day job of this subject, I’m going to do one more.  Why, because of the question of Race. By the time I was 13, I became pre-occupied […]

Rope-a-Dopes

Methinks that Obama outmaneuvered and outflanked the republicants and their teapartymadhatters.  Reassessing the last few months, I think that Obama’s calmness and strategy have once again outsmarted the party of ‘No’. I’m starting to believe that the administration clearly planned a campaign based on the negative knee-jerk mentality of the madhatters.  He orchestrated the whole […]

Moving to the ridiculous

Jingoistic ego and pomposity are bad allies in a war.  Take Afghanistan and the arrest of the taliban’s #2 man, mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar. Baradar was arrested in Karachi by Pakistani authorities who were tipped off by American intelligence (always a contradiction of terms).  Great job!   Welllll, not so fast my friend. Evidently, Baradar was […]

Not in my backyard

Was talking with my sister (she’s Canadian) the other day about the ‘Not in my backyard’ mentality of many people, not just Americans.  She was telling me about plans for alternative energy sources through windmills and how homeowners in an area slated for windmills were against the idea because it would bring their home prices […]

AID with chains attached

On January 23, the Haitian government called off the search and rescue efforts, but in spite of this, live people are still being found.  Does anyone really think that it is the non-functional Haitian government behind this proclamation or are they merely the scapegoats?   If there were 10 American, 5 French and/or an assortment of […]

It seemed like a good idea…

Was gonna rag on Tiger Woods a bit more (what the heck, its the Christmas season) but another distraction came up. Though giving him a pass this week, I must say that from all reports, if he doesn’t go back to golf, he could be a budding porn star, the first cablasian one to boot. […]

The futility of crossing over? Woods, Beyonce, Obama

Forgive me.  I was distracted this last few weeks by my solo art show.  But though my head was buried in preparations, who could miss Tiger Woods’ name and affairs spread all over the media? Now, I’m not one to wallow in celebrity carnage, but Woods’ dilemmas, and a couple other things, brought me to thinking […]

Everything crash

Heyyyy everybody!  I’m a star by association. Not close association mind you, but I was in a bookstore with Glen Beck.  Glen who?  The darling of the right-wing religious nutcases.  No I didn’t speak with him, shake his hands or ask for an autograph.  It didn’t appeal to me to even want to see him.  […]
