Occupy Resides in Rural America, Too

After a long hiatus, the Pencil Warrior returns and weighs in on the Occupy Wall Street movement. You don't wanna miss this one. Trust us.

Declaring democracy on the American plutocracy

If corporations are "people" as the supreme court claims, then perhaps we do need a death penalty after all.

Fact, opinion, and self delusion

When talking politics, have you ever noticed how it's always "the other guy" whose facts are questionable? Well, at least until one day, when you look in the mirror and see the dreaded "other guy" staring back at you!

Is there an elephant in the room with regards to the Gulf oil spill? The Pencil Warrior thinks so...
