My apology to Kathleen Parker. Frank Gaffney is way crazier…

June 9, 2009 imho is just a polite way to say I know you don't give a hoot what I think but I'm going to say it anyway

Tweet Now I feel bad for lambasting Kathleen Parker for hinting at a tenuous relationship between Obama and Osama because of the rhyming last names. (This reminds me: is it now a good time to resurrect the old Internet sensation the Llama Song?) I was alerted to an article by Frank Gaffney, “America’s first Muslim […]

Tis a low ball to insinuate anything via someone’s family name…

June 9, 2009 imho is just a polite way to say I know you don't give a hoot what I think but I'm going to say it anyway

Tweet Kathleen Parker of the Washington Post Writers Group commented (criticized, no need for euphemism on my own blog) on Obama’s latest speech to the Muslim world at the Cairo University on June 4. Granted that most of Ms. Parker’s columns leave me fuming, I have learned to agree to disagree with her and her […]

“You people!” is symptomatic of something that none of us want to admit…

May 30, 2009 imho is just a polite way to say I know you don't give a hoot what I think but I'm going to say it anyway

Tweet (I promise. This is going to be the final rant from me. There is a bit OCD in my personality, and sometimes things just bother me and I cannot let go. Most of the time these are “trivial” by most people’s measure. But are they REALLY trivial? Perhaps they are only trivial because you […]

Wonder what Newt would say about this classic Eddie Murphy SNL skit “White Like Me”?

“No, Newt, You’re the Racist” Thank goodness someone more elequont wrote this rebuttal…

May 29, 2009 imho is just a polite way to say I know you don't give a hoot what I think but I'm going to say it anyway

Tweet to the charge by some Republicans against the Supreme Court Nominee, Sonia Sotomayor, as being a racist against the white people, and specifically, white male people. I first saw this charge when I was waiting to board the plane. (You know the CNN scrolling texts on the bottom that drive everybody crazy but, I […]

How Nordstrom honors the Asian Pacific American Heritage Month…

May 8, 2009 a picture is worth a thousand words

Tweet First of all, for all of ya who are uninitiated: May is designated by the U.S. Congress as the Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. Don’t fret if you didn’t know until now. The first week of May is actually Asian Pacific American Heritage WEEK. Between the Swine Flu and the Oprah-KFC debacle (Seriously, folks. […]

Rising to the Challenge: trying to explain why I don’t watch Lost

March 13, 2009 imho is just a polite way to say I know you don't give a hoot what I think but I'm going to say it anyway

Tweet Dear Mr. Gleeson, I know this sounds like a cop out to you, but here is a short, incompletely researched response to your question to which I have not responded to. But I have other duties to tend to, such as packing for our long trip to Asia which commences tomorrow, (Here is a […]

Will “Irresponsible Homeowners” step out of the room so we can all move on?

March 4, 2009 imho is just a polite way to say I know you don't give a hoot what I think but I'm going to say it anyway

Tweet via youtube.com So the Treasury Department today released the details for HARP “Home Affordable Refinance Program” & HAMP “Home Affordable Modification Program”. The title of this press release is “Relief for Responsible Homeowners“. Drum roll please… Apparently, the plan is NOT going to be able to save EVERYBODY. (Actually, the number given today is […]

Utah Senator Butt-Arse calls Gays immoral. And polygamy is? Where is the Big Love?

February 20, 2009 imho is just a polite way to say I know you don't give a hoot what I think but I'm going to say it anyway

Tweet No flaming please.  I didn't mean to compare Gays to Polygamists.  But if Utah Senator Chris Butt-Ars (A-ha!) has his right to speak what is on his mind, to spout garbage based on stereotypes and gross generalization and nothing else, despite being an elected public official, then I have the right to generalize the State of […]

The New York Post chimp cartoon – Not at all funny no matter how you look at it…

February 18, 2009 imho is just a polite way to say I know you don't give a hoot what I think but I'm going to say it anyway

Tweet New controversy alert! February is not over yet, and as many of us have held our breath fearfully awaited, the FIRST racist cartoon about our FIRST Black Prez is out! My fellow Americans, once again, you do not disappoint… So the unfortunate New York Post published this cartoon today and also on its website. […]
