Symbiosis: Rev. Wright and the Subversive Media

| April 30, 2008 | 0 Comments

By Erik Rush
There’s not much point left to arguing whether the provocative vitriol purveyed by Trinity United Church’s former pastor Rev. Jeremiah Wright in his sermons was warranted, understandable, excusable or in any way accurate. This columnist and an increasing number of Americans believe Wright’s tirades were wholly inexcusable and thus by nature cannot be explained away, as many have attempted to do. One would no sooner argue with a Holocaust denier, as such excursions are folly.

Ten Simple Truths About Oil

Having written about the energy industry and issues now for a long time, I hope I can be forgiven for being enraged by the comments by Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) in response to President Bush’s press conference Tuesday morning. There is simply no way to describe them other than false.

From the Soviet Union to Putin’s Russia

When the government of the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, the fall was attributed to all kinds of reasons. There was the failed invasion of Afghanistan, the symbolic fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, and, after some desperate efforts by Mikhail Gorbechev, Communism as a guiding principle and economic system simply imploded. That’s the thumbnail version that passes for history, but Michael J. Economides and Donna Marie D’Aleo have another answer and it’s one you may not want to hear.

In the name of rationality and reason

“Nothing can be more contrary to religion and the clergy than reason and common sense.” — Voltaire

We can reason and rationalize just about anything, including our lack of exercise and bad eating habits. We rationalize insensitivity to others’ feelings because we live in a world that has become coarse and crude. Are we reasonable? Are we rational? How often does an alcoholic rationalize: “I can have one drink?”

Does Winfrey Ride The Beast?

| April 24, 2008 | 1 Comment

At one point in her career, Oprah Winfrey was pretty much seen as a harmless crank as to the casual viewer catching the show in passing assumed that the program dealt primarily with her seesawiing weight and whether or not her shackup might secretly prefer to be paid in three dollar bills.

Cults of Personalities

| April 24, 2008 | 0 Comments

I had to jump on this one. As a teenager, I attended summer camp with actor Jason Beghe, and we were members of a loosely-knit camp clique for a time thereafter. I actually made some lifelong friends through that experience, but as moviegoers know, Jason headed for Hollywood and made his mark there. I must confess to having thought at the time he was something of a shallow guy – but then, who’s very deep at seventeen? With the Pet Sematary in my closet, I’m in no position to judge anyone.

The Hypocrisy Of Rev. Jeremiah Wright

Add the Reverend Jeremiah Wright to the list of race-hustling, misleading double-speaking con men who just so happens to wear a pastor’s collar. Certainly, we are all too familiar with their names. Their demagoguery is infamous. They are often deemed by the media as the leaders and spokespeople of the black community.
