State of the Union - almost the Last Hurrah

Posted By on Sun, Jan 27, 2008 at 11:00 AM

We thought this day would never come - George Bush delivers his last State of the Union address on Monday.

The good folks at the Washington County Green Party have the perfect antidote for those who don’t feel like staying home and listening to nonsense.

This Monday, Jan. 28th, the President will give his annual State of the Union Address. The Washington County Green Party is sponsoring a protest of the State of the Union. Whether it be the network of secret prisons, torture, illegal spying, or ignoring the threat of global climate change,
we ask that you join us in expressing you dissatisfaction with the state of our Union. Please bring a picket sign and dress warmly on Monday  the 28th. The protest will be at the Federal Build. on College and Mountain between 5:00 and 6:30 pm.

Battle of the has-Been Stars Continues

Chuck Norris endorses Huckabee - yawn.

Sylvester Stallone endorses Mcain.

In a truly bizarre - and kind of suck up - piece on a  FOX News  site, it was announced that the once-popular star of the “Rocky” and “Rambo” films has endorsed John McCain, with a bizarre headline announcing:

Sylvester Stallone Endorses McCain. Coolest Endorsement Yet?

Well, no, it’s not. Maybe if it was 25 years ago?

The whole sad little story can be read at

  • Take yourself there: Mavis Staples coming to LR for Central High performance

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
  • Lynchings hidden in the history of the Hot Springs Confederate monument

    Hot Springs twice erupted into the kind of violence that has its roots in the issues left unresolved by the Civil War, and both times, it happened right where that monument to Confederate soldiers stands today.
