For starters, I am not the Henry Porter who writes for the Observer in Britain. I'm a native New Yorker living in Maryland. I used to believe knowledge was power. Now I know knowledge translated into action is power.

For about $6 billion USD we could buy the entire wholesale value of the Afghan opium crop for the next 10 years. That is about what we'll spend in 2 months covering the cost of deploying 30,000 combat troops. Spend that money a little creatively and we could avoid a catastrophe in Afghanistan.

Let me introduce you to some of the good, decent, God-fearing people Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) is throwing to the wolves. Depravity in a senator is nothing new. But this takes the cake.

The debate is not about government-run health care. It is about government containing uncontrolled inflation in the health care insurance market. Confusing the two is a bait-and-switch tactic that needs to be debunked.

If MSNBC wants to put racists, hypocrites or Republicans on, that is their decision. But could they at least stop putting on morons who flaunt their ignorance of American history like Pat Buchanan?

Sadly, Carlin will not get to perform at this year's Kennedy Center Awards. I was looking forward to it because I suspect he would have come at Bush like Colbert.... only with a baseball bat.
