By Phil Ingram Stanley “Tookie” Williams III, the founding father of the Crips, explained it best: “The more I began to lift weights, the more I became addicted to the feeling of being bigger and stronger.”  This, of course, is something to which many ordinary, hard-working folk living in the forgotten grain-producing states of the […]

September 23, 2012

By Bruno Fournier Romney was caught on tape confessing his belief that 47% of the citizens of a State atavistically still called the United States of America are entirely dependent upon that State and will therefore, for some reason, not vote for him.  Obama, in response, made a big hoopla by claiming that his presidency […]

By Bruno Fournier Let’s face one of the most contentious issues of the contemporary U.S. culture wars head-on: Gay Marriage.  What I am about to present here may seem an act of sacrilege to many, but that is because it is so infrequently attempted.  The Gay Rights movement and the explosive issue of gay marriage […]
