Summarizing the Iraq Crisis

Just to make sure I’m clear on this…

Bush invaded Iraq to remove the threat of WMD’s and al-Qaeda from that country with Congress’s blessing, even though neither were there. After we invaded, al-Qaeda came in to fight us. In the course of the Surge/Awakening, al-Qaeda was forced out and then the Iraqi government forced us to leave too even though ISIS was starting to form.

ISIS and al-Qaeda next moved into Syria to help … Read more

Hey Mr DJ: Big Damn Holiday Edition

With Christmas behind us, we must pause to remember 2013. And while you do that, I’ll be preparing for my New Year’s Eve tradition of getting wasted and passing out on the couch before midnight. I didn’t say it was a good tradition or anything to be proud of. It just kind of happened back in 2008 and I’ve been doing it ever since just to see if I can. Oh, shut up.

Anyhow, 2013 … Read more

Hey Mr DJ: Un-Accountability Edition

Don’t ask me why I went a month with no music threads. You see, I have taken a cue from our Masters and decided that if The Powers That Be are allowed to hopelessly bungle the government’s attempt to control 1/6th of the US economy while inflicting higher costs on millions of Americans, lay workers off even while reaping record profits, rape the entire world’s privacy rights through the once-magical and promising power of the … Read more

Hey Mr DJ: Listless Playlist Edition

Literally a bit sick and tired this week. Recuperating.

I could use some music that will put me right back to sleep if I happen to get up and start browsing.


Make the most of it.

Hey Mr DJ: New Health Plan Edition

My great reward for taking two weeks of vacation (during which I went nowhere, sat on my ass, drank cheap beer, and spent most of my time acting like an antisocial menace on social media) was to find that my pants barely fit and my work had piled up on my desk. Being a fat, sedentary workaholic is not a good health plan, by any stretch. It’s so undeniably true, you could even take Obama’s … Read more

Hey Mr DJ: Year One Anthology

Where does the time go? It has already been one year since the music threads here at RTFLC were revived. Throughout that time all those who have participated have, I hope, then equally entertained and enriched by the experience. I am happy to keep it going, but now I think it is a good time to take a look back at where we have been.

All of the DJ threads can be found here. … Read more

Hey Mr DJ: Real Horrorshow Edition

Yes, this post is an hour or so early. It’s Halloween! My favorite day of the year. Trick or Treating with the kids is done and now it’s time to drink some quality beer and enjoy some scary movies. I’m posting this a bit early for the sake of you night owls and vampires.

As happens every year, I will set out the jack o’ lanterns I painstakingly carved, hoping that some young soul from … Read more

Hey Mr DJ: Go To Hell Edition

The hits just keep on coming. First, the whole rotten business with the GOP collapse on the debt ceiling deal. It shouldn’t come as any surprise that I opposed raising the debt ceiling and ending the shutdown. We are on an unsustainable path and I would have preferred stopping the ever-expanding debt now rather than later. The bigger this gets, the larger the crater when it finally crashes, right? Remember that. We have missed yet … Read more

Hey Mr DJ: Power Mad Rangers Edition

If you’re like me, you’re disgusted by the behavior of the National Park Service using the so-called shutdown as a pretext to clamp down authoritarian-style on hapless veterans and sightseers like so much Mr. Ranger to Yogi Bear.

Many in the elected branches and federal bureaucracy have covered themselves with shame by deliberately withholding services to persuade the public to oppose one political party, but none have been as brazen or axe-crazy as NPS. I … Read more
