Flag Burning Constitutional Amendment Again?
By Dale Roethlisberger

Whenever the ‘conservatives’ run out of issue’s gas or have a need to obfuscate other pressing national political concerns, they bring up the idea of a Constitutional Amendment about desecration of our Nation’s Flag. ‘Liberals’ generally try to ignore these attemps as irrelevant. We think this is a mistake. Why not take this silly issue off the playing field once and for all. If the amendment were structured properly it should satisfy the overwhelming majority. Futhermore, it would actually have a chance of becoming Constitutional Law. Read the rest of this entry »

The Capital Beltway, A Likely Pre Al Qaeda Terrorist Plot
By Dale Roethlisberger

In some circles it is known as the ‘Bloatway’. We’re talking about that section of Interstate 95/495 that encircles our nation’s capital. This highway was either designed by madmen, or deep in the psyche of those designers lurked proto ‘Al Qaeda’ terrorist tendencies. Certainly, since its completion, this highway, in overall magnitude, has killed enough people to be on par with the ‘World Trade Center’ attacks on our Nation. We are forced to conclude that the beltway brings out the worst in driving behavior. ‘Road rage’ can’t begin to describe what we have seen occur in our travels on this stretch of the Interstate system. Yes, we ascribe devious intent to those designers who participated in this project from its inception.

Take the major ongoing ‘improvement’ now taking place in the Springfield, VA area referred to by the media as the ‘mixing bowl’. Here we have the rejoining of the east and west loops and I-395, all converging together to head south. From a design point of view, this plan can only be characterized as ‘voodoo’ or ‘mumbo jumbo’ and so far it’s taken years with additional years to go until completion. We suggest a moniker change, it should be referred to as the ‘mosh pit’ instead of the ‘mixing bowl’. Read the rest of this entry »

Congress-critters Beware! There’s a New Mudslinger in Town
By Dale Roethlisberger

We are not about journalism. On the other hand, we are not purveyors of wanton disrespect or slander either. We are attempting to balance on the knife’s edge between the important and the banal. We walk a thin line where on one side lies seriousness and the other side lies silliness.

We hope to attract writer’s that don’t care about the ‘box’ so they have no problem thinking inside or outside of it. Remembering the adage about the oldest profession, we want people to ‘prostitute’ their minds. This leads to the second oldest profession of ‘pimping’ and the “Washingtongue” will be there to assist you in pimping your prostituted minds.

Finally, the third oldest profession has to be ‘politics’. As soon as Adam and Eve had their first difference of opinion, politics was born. They must have had the future Washington, DC in mind, a place where minds are prostituted, pimped, and politicized to the fullest extent possible. We just want to join in on this endless public performance that regularly occurs in our Nation’s Capital. Maybe you will come along and play too.
