Congratulations, Mr. President

HERE WE HAVE IT. The end of an era. A turn of the page. A so-called post-racial but racially-charged election is now in the books. And the winner and 44th President of the United States of America is the junior Senator from the Great State of Illinois—Barack Obama. We, at The Two-fisted Quorum, offer no apologies for owning our votes, and casting them for the opposition, but now that the Democratic ticket has won this historic election, it is time to move on past the ugly tactics this election process on both sides of the aisle could never transcend. It...

The Theatre Of Political Desire

The following is a comment from a PUMA named Janis. The topic is Obama's 2004 speech. Her perspective is quite close to my own, even though I do not consider myself a member of the Democratic Party as does she.

When challenged about the enslavement of this young...


The Myth Of Peace

FROM RELIGIONOFPEACE.COM Myth: Islam is a Religion of PeaceMuhammad was a peaceful man who taught his followers to be the same. Muslims lived peacefully for centuries, only fighting in self-defense when it was necessary. True Muslims would never act aggressively. The Truth: uhammad organized 65 military campaigns in the last ten years of his life and personally led 27 of them. The more power he attained, the smaller the excuse needed to go to battle, until finally he began attacking tribes merely because they were not part of his growing empire. These are the natural acts of a standard ops...


Don't Be Fooled By Dreamers

COMBINE RELIGION, RACE, the Cold War, America's enemies, and a history of colonialism, and you've got a breeding ground for the most virulent strains of politically correct mythology, distortions, and cover-ups. If you've spent more time in front of the TV watching reruns, and still haven't got a clue about what's going on in the mother of all global hotspots, then you need to take a stroll through The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Middle East by Martin Sieff. In his book you'll learn: Why the Arab-Israeli conflict today isn't about borders—and never was How the Arab states openly declared...
