Become a Fan. You'll get emails whenever I post articles on OpEdNews
I was born when I was yet quite young, and was second-born in a litter of two. My twin sister and I are not now, nor have we ever been, identical as evidenced by our differing balding patterns: she has very little facial hair. If you look us straight in the face, you'll be able to tell the difference. We were, however, womb-mates (and not cell-mates) which nevertheless allowed us to escape strict individuality for quite some time. In any case, now that we're both in our dotage, I am a stage actor, and she is not. I have written a couple of screenplays: Telepathy Tech and BallTown (an animated feature with sports balls, etc. as characters). Here's the logline: As URTH and MOONICA whirl your way, what oh what can T. D. FOOT, TIPPY the VOLLEY GIRL, DUNCAN BASKET and the frightened residents of BallTown do when SLIME takes a notion to destroy their bounce, their roll and even their soul. I'm also an oil paint artist. These are a few aids to help with identification.
10 INDISPENSABLE BROADCAST JOURNALIST'S WORDS/PHRASES
Haven't we all observed these but because we go through life on cruise control, they whip by generally unnoticed. However, if you have any thought of a career in journalism or of being interviewed (more than once), you need to study up and learn each of these.

30 Talking Points to Favor Obama
There are many more than 30 talking points that favor Obama; however using these can assist in what we in debating call a "prima facie" case.
Bush-Speak--a much-abridged Dictionary
THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION'S DICTIONARY is, by anyone's measure, a lexicon that adds a myriad of new definitions to our language. Over the past six years, our inference of the world of word-meanings has undergone a metamorphosis due quite literally to George W. Bush and his confederates.
BUSH GIVES A "THUMPIN" TO THE NEAREST STINKY POLL-CAT
"Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the WORST villain, blackguard, heel, knave, miscreant, rascal, reprobate, rogue, scalawag, scoundrel, swine, wretch, lowlife, scumbag of them all?" THE MIRROR REPLIES, "You are, GEORGE, IN A LANDSLIDE!"

BUSH'S BLUNDERLAND a parody . . .
With apologies to Felix Bernard (composer of Winter Wonderland) and Richard B. Smith (lyricist), AND the singing artists: Andrews Sisters as well as Perry Como.

GEORGIE, THE RED-STATE "REIGN-DEAR"
With sincere apologies to RUDOLPH, as well as Robert May (the originator of the idea), Johnny Marks (the song writer), Montgomery Ward (the retailer promoter) and Gene Autry (who sang the song)...

NEEDED: LARGE POWERFUL FAN to blow the DIRT back at ROVIANS
When I heard W. say he'd read the Iraq Special Committee's Report, I had to laugh. What he meant (and should have said, if he wanted to be honest) was he had his staff read it and "fill him in". And will he read Obama's book? You know the answer.

THE BIBLE loses MUCH in the TRANSLATION. CREATIONISTS, get REAL!
For you FUNDAMENTALISTS, you are welcome to whatever daily "walk with God" you require; It is my fervent wish for you that SOMEDAY after this life you'll walk with your "guy" God on the vault of chuwg. As you do so, from above the stars, cast your eyes through the clouds down upon all of the grasshoppers here. If and when I can contemplate the existence of GOD (which is by no means always) he/she/it is infinitely infinite.
RIGHT for the JOB???
And what do YOU think of BUSH'S opinion of who is qualified for a job? BUSH himself isn't qualified to be President, much less to judge qualifications.

IF Bush Is Smart (an oxymoron), He'll Get Out of Iraq; If WE'RE Smart, We'll Impeach Him!
George W. Bush's ONLY Prayer to
"maybe" AVOID Being the WORST
U.S. President in History . . .IT'S NOT ENOUGH to SAVE him from deserving IMPEACHMENT, however!!! And his "cognitive" abilities are so minimal tht he is patently unaware of what a poor job he's done. If there's ever an "autobiography", it will be from the words of a ghost writer. Bush is incapable of writing his own.
LIFE? OK, Let's talk about it.
I offer these thoughts about life structures and EVOLUTION. Indeed they beg for ideas and "ask for" more exploration and research. But, I also offer it to put into perspective what can be lost if we disregard THE WARNINGS ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING. Evolution depends upon the success of the environment.

Is there ART in YOUR heART? Tell me about it.
Is there ART in YOUR heART? ... If so, it's pARTly due to early influences on you, and most especially to what you found were among those stalwART passions in your life.

Moderation OBVIOUSLY What Is Needed
Since we are all OVERLY gullible (even from the early years of our "Curious George" and "Elmo" lives), and susceptible to THIS month's fashion or fad (what is it these days: Borat?), our elected officials will continue to be in office resulting (in significant response) to/from NEGATIVE ADS and well-marketed politicians (those who have a Carl Rove to guide their campaigns) irrespective of their qualifications.

JEB Will RUN: BET ON IT
Noted for fielding an "attractive" set of candidates for President and Vice President, the Repubs are likely to go for Jeb Bush and Rudy Giuliani. Jeb has several liabilities that appear to outweigh his strengths. Nevertheless, two years is a long time in politics and the Repubs aren't able to see the trees for the BUSHES. You saw it first right here: Jeb Bush will be the Republican's candidate... UNLESS ...

REPUBLICANIA (The Disease)
With any disease, it is important to first diagnose it correctly. Here is a description of one we ALL know is pervasive, and in need of a cure. Let's work together to effect one.

Some Republicanism May Be Genetic
It turns out that there just might be scientific evidence now to indicate how someone who is unreasonably Republican, who is in absolute and persistent denial about the administration's corruption and incompetence, MIGHT be afflicted with a genetic predisposition for being so.
