The Martyrdom of Wickedness
Andrzej Koraszewski (05-03-2007)
The Jews knew that flight from their Polish, Ukrainian, Belorussian or Russian neighbors could be a leap from the frying pan into the fire. Some naively chose communism, believing in the promise of brotherhood without racism; others escaped to America; still others tried to assimilate, showing thousands of examples of their patriotism. The great majority simply tried to live side by side with their Polish neighbors, hoping that somehow things would work out. Only very few believed in the utopia of rebuilding an Israeli state in Palestine. Read..
In Praise of Consumerism
Andrzej Koraszewski (14-10-2005)
Consumerism does not enjoy a favourable press, never mind a pulpit. Scholars, journalists, and priests are feverishly engrossed in their laptops looking for words of condemnation for people who instead of bowing humbly before "values" and giving sacrifices to gods are rushing to a "temple of Satan" and buying material things.

"What contemporary thinkers describe as consumerism seems to be something more than merely a modern modification of hedonism and utilitarianism.

The Moron in the White House
Dr William Harwood (22-08-2004)
Probably the most damning indictment I, as a Canadian, can level against the moron (IQ 70-84 SB) in the White House is this: He is America's Stockwell Day. Read..
Same-Sex Marriage
Bernard Katz (10-05-2004)
Heterosexuals like the President claim that they are protecting the sanctity of marriage. If this is so, why are there so many divorces? The high divorce rate shows that straights are as committed to marriage as a 9-year-old kid is to practicing the piano! Read..
Zapatero!
John Chuckman (14-04-2004)

An Enemy Of The People
John Chuckman (03-03-2004)

Hey Limbaugh-Bimbaugh!
Kaz Dziamka (29-01-2004)
Rush Limbaugh, the "Dirigible of Drivel," on a mission from a Jewish tribal deity, may be in serious legal trouble. And very well should be. Read..
Bush: a Failed Oilman
John Chuckman (24-01-2004)
Thinking people aren't surprised that George Bush qualifies as a moral and intellectual dry hole. Bush's halting words come from a mouth so long smugly-set it can scarcely form the shapes of vowels, but enormous ignorance also manages to come through. Read..
Terrorism, Then And Now
Bernard Katz (15-01-2004)

Banging Your Head...
John Chuckman (07-11-2003)
A general military action against terror is an insane concept, too destructive and unfocused to have predictable results. You cannot fight beliefs or grievances with armored divisions. Read..

Just Whose Death Is It, Anyway?
Marge Mignacca (04-09-2003)
To conclude that suicide automatically signifies "a diseased mind" is downright irresponsible and inaccurate. Read..
Of Blair, Hussein, And Genocide
John Chuckman (15-08-2003)
Iraq was invaded simply because Hussein didn't play the game by American rules, not because of weapons of mass destruction, murder of Kurds, or any other reason officially given by the US and Britain. Read..

John Chuckman (09-08-2003)

Liberals vs. Crypto-Nazis
John Chuckman (03-08-2003)

An Internecine Brawl
Charles M. Jaquette (30-07-2003)
