Neocons on a Cruise: What Conservatives Say When They Think We Aren't Listening

Amazing story of a reporter who joined the crazy cruisers from the right wing nuts of "National Review". She starts with: "Is he your only child?" I ask. "Yes," she says. "Do you have a child back in England?" she asks. No, I say. Her face darkens. "You'd better start," she says. "The Muslims are breeding. Soon, they'll have the whole of Europe."

Right wing or Left, I am always open to honest discussions about the state of our Union and of the events unfolding day by day on the global stage. One particular maxim that I believe in is that deep down we agree on more things than we disagree on, and more often than not we only disagree on how to arrive at the same destination. What disheartens me the most has been the vilification of both sides. America has been split and spirited discourse has been shoved out of the way in order to maim, hurt, and/or kill of the other side. The middle ground has become a nuclear wasteland from which both sides have retreated and now only serves as the increasing divide between the two. I often think what we see now is a cosmic farce, the Cold War over and seemly forgotten, now replayed in the Political Theater of the victor. Both sides too prideful to back down, and that hubris is driving us toward catastrophe.

In times like these, I find a lot of insight of how we traveled down this dark and twisted road from articles like these. Reason has been forced out of the picture, due to its constant distortion of what people want to believe. I hold out hope that cooler heads prevail, and people are able to set aside the desire to be “right” and look up to see the dire brink we are currently standing on.

Wedding trashers

The past year has seen the rise of a gleefully destructive post-wedding ritual: the "trash the dress" photo shoot, in which the bride models her gown while romping in the ocean, climbing up a fire escape, rolling in the mud, or, in at least one occasion, riding a horse.
