Duck Dynasty Star Cooked His Own Goose

The morality judging, conservative, Constitution clingers in the right wing are pouring on the support for Duck Dynasty star, Phil Robertson, who cooked his own goose in a recent interview with GQ Magazine. His no holds barred sort of interview has landed him in hot water and he was put on indefinate “hiatus” by the popular A&E reality show. Robertson, is known to be an outspoken Christian; in the interview he equated “homosexuality with bestiality and called the lifestyle a sin.” “We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series ‘Duck Dynasty’,” A&E said in a statement on Wednesday. “His personal views in no way reflect … Continue reading

If we are serious about protecting our privacy, let’s have that discussion

when you cede secret powers that remain unchecked and untested (Constitutionally) you all but guarantee the abuse of that power.

But to suggest that we have abandoned him or anybody has abandoned him is simply incorrect and not helpful,” Kerry said. “The fact … Continue reading

Secretary of State John Kerry Returns to Mekong Delta

Secretary of State John Kerry returned to the muddy waters of the Mekong Delta this weekend, decades after commanding a Swift Boat there during the Vietnam War.  Serving in that war would ultimately turn Kerry against the war and take him full circle from military service, to activist, to decades of public service in the Senate, to presidential candidate, and now as the U.S. Secretary of State. John Kerry’s visit to the Mekong Delta was to “investigate climate change in his role as Washington’s top diplomat.” Kerry, who arrived in Ho Chi Minh City Saturday on a trip aimed at shoring up ties with Southeast Asia, travelled by boat through Ca Mau, a once-dangerous Viet Cong stronghold, an official with the local … Continue reading
