Posted by: Michael Rappaport

Griffin :: GA :: USA | updated 2014-02-07 07:55:20 -0800 | political-news

The Republican Party may be approaching the point where it becomes a criminal organization. So much of what they're doing is designed to help them win elections using at least deceptive and at worst completely dishonest tactics. Going back to...

Nearly 40 years ago, a friend of mine became a born-again Christian. He had been raised in the Catholic Church, but had rejected the religion of his parents and had been sailing along, religion-free, until the folks who called themselves...

Posted by: Michael Rappaport

Griffin :: GA :: USA | updated 2014-02-04 23:47:48 -0800 | political-news

If you were to ask conservatives what is the most important thing about the modern United States of America, one answer that would be high on the list is the so-called "free market." Theoretically, at least, one of the most...

Are you a vampire or a zombie? Or maybe more accurately, do you see the people, for lack of a better term, who are making your life more difficult as vampires or zombies? Both have been with us for many...

Breaking News: Want a way really to reduce abortions? Listen up, campers
   
Posted by: Michael Rappaport

Griffin :: GA :: USA | updated 2014-03-03 08:26:50 -0800 | political-news

"Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice ..." It probably isn't fair to use Barry Goldwater's most infamous quote in discussing the issue of abortion. Goldwater, extremely conservative on many issues, was pro-choice on abortion. He said the...

If you give a mouse a cookie ... It's an old expression about never being satisfied and always wanting more, and it's pretty apparent Grover Norquist and his minions aren't going to be satisfied until rich people pay no taxes...

Breaking News: Can we comment on the news without using pop culture?
   
Posted by: Michael Rappaport

Griffin :: GA :: USA | updated 2014-03-31 13:59:06 -0700 | entertainment-news

Have we become so overwhelmingly stupid in the second decade of the 21st century that everything had to be explained to us by using popular culture? More's the pity. When I looked at the front page of The Huffington Post...

Breaking News: Could Piers' exit open the door for Larry to return?
   
Posted by: Michael Rappaport

Griffin :: GA :: USA | updated 2014-02-28 14:09:12 -0800 | entertainment-news

I never saw Piers Morgan's show on CNN. I was aware that he had replaced Larry King a few years back, but I never watched Larry's show either. I didn't need to see his replacement. You see, I think it's...

Griffin :: GA :: USA | updated 2014-02-05 15:35:00 -0800 | disasters-news

I don't remember the first time I saw Philip Seymour Hoffman in a movie. It may have been "Leap of Faith," the Steve Martin movie about an evangelist, in 1992. Maybe it was "Scent of a Woman," Al Pacino's award-winning...

Posted by: Michael Rappaport

So word is that David Letterman will retire in 2015. CNN's Brian Stelter tweeted the news Thursday afternoon, which probably means Letterman himself either told friends or announced it himself during the taping of Thursday night's show. What? You thought...

Griffin :: GA :: USA | updated 2014-02-07 10:05:48 -0800 | political-news

Most of the people who read my posts here are living in the United States. That makes sense, I suppose. I write from the perspective of someone who has lived all but 20 months of his life in the US...
