Dave’s Political Satire

This is the blog of humor writer David Martin. He’s a Canadian, aye, but he sure knows a lot about American politics and political figures. He does a great job of putting an interesting and humorous spin on the goings on in the American government. His writing is fresh and his blog is up to date on current events.

Dave’s Political Satire– Why You Should Go

For a great laugh. You’ll get a whole new look at what Washington is up to. Martin’s work has appeared in many North American newspapers and he is the author of several books. He has had great coverage of the oil spill, healthcare reform and even the whole Tiger Woods mess in recent months.

Summing Up Dave’s Political Satire

Political humor at its finest. Martin isn’t particular partisan; he makes fun of everything and everybody and does so quite well. He is also able to make fun of the situation without being offensive. He doesn’t, for example, make fun of the oil spill, but rather the people responsible for it.

The Unknown Candidate

The Unknown Candidate is a liberal blog dedicated to the most important events going on in Washington. They follow hot topics like the healthcare debate closely with a very liberal slant. The blog is current and posts some very interesting articles. The author remains anonymous, but lists his basic beliefs on the site.

The Unknown Candidate– Why You Should Go

The blog is current and politically relevant. It’s a good place to keep up with the most important political news. The blog uses news article and guest writers on a regular basis, so the writing is fresh and comes from different points of view. The author is committed to some very basic ideals that most Americans would share. His method of obtaining these is what will be questionable to more conservative readers.

Summing Up The Unknown Candidate

TUC is a fresh and interesting blog about today’s politics and newsworthy items. It is, however, decidedly liberal, and likely, bordering on offensive to most Republicans. They use a variety of writers and post news from other sources, as long as it is in line with their political view.

In A World Of Tiny Minds

Tiny Minds

The news is barely tolerable watching (or reading) these days, what with all the doom and gloom of the economy and markets, and life in general. It’s enough to make anyone believe in their own desperation, regardless of whether it’s actually a reality. So how do you deal with a world with nothing good to say? You fight back against their “declining capacity for rational thought.”

Tiny Minds – Why You Should Go

This is just what the authors at Tiny Minds are doing – “Exploring Humanity’s Declining Capacity for Rational Thought.” Snarky posts amuse and make lighter the load that is living amongst the irrational world of today, with topics ranging from email scam letters to the politicians who make it so easy to target them (and no, we’re not only talking George W.!). When it gets down to it, the irrationality of the world is nothing short of amazing, and, thanks to this crew, amusing, too.

Summing Up Tiny Minds

Tiny Minds is an equal-opportunity ridiculer, describing itself as,

“…a repository for stories and commentary about the declining apparent intelligence of human beings.
It’s not limited to inane goings on; there’s lots of dumb things that happen in politics, science, government, everyday lives, and the like — we don’t discriminate on the basis of HOW people are dumb; it’s all fair game.”

For those of us left with a shred of rational thought, it is a place to come, relax, be amused, and enable ourselves to get through the daily paper.

Daily Dose Of The Daily Blonde

The Daily Blonde

The Daily Blonde is the work of Cheryl Phillips, a single mother of five with a quick wit—and she’s not afraid to use it. She’s a woman with convictions and a fearless sense of humor, offering up her opinions and commentary to brighten your day and support her causes of choice as she vents about politics (less the issues—more the players), Pepsi, and life in general.

The Daily Blonde – Why You Should Go

Cheryl describes herself as a woman with “lots to say, a big sense of humor, and low tolerance for people who don’t know how to laugh! I’m far from a feminist. I can’t imagine even getting along with Gloria Steinem. I live life without a filter on my mouth. I say it like it is but never with the intent to hurt…just to share a laugh about this crazy thing called life!” In this spirit she takes on anything that strikes her interest, mostly for amusement’s sake except for when it counts. When does it count for The Daily Blonde? When the issues are worth caring about—issues like children and family and breast cancer awareness.

Summing Up The Daily Blonde

Cheryl Phillips brings a refreshingly open and honest voice to her blog. She means no harm and does no harm while delivering lots of quirky laughs. Join Cheryl for some ditzy (her word choice, not mine) humor and learn to take a less serious lease on life.

Category: Personal Development

Intrepid Ideas

Intrepid Ideas is a blog that promises to take you where your thoughts dare not let you go. It breathes life to the secret thoughts you wish would live with an energy and courage that few have. This blog is anonymously authored so that the focus can be on the thoughts, and less on the person thinking them; because the author truly feels that the blog and the process is not about him, but you, or at the very least, “us.”

Intrepid Ideas – Why You Should Go

Intrepid Ideas is a blog with a mission. That mission is, in part, to “…spread some fresh courageous ideas through this blog as well as create a somewhat cryptic archive of my travels and thoughts. Through music, media, and prose, I hope to stimulate thought – exercise my creative side – and solicit feedback from the human race. Most importantly, I hope to realize some sort of growth from this experience.” To this end it has been a great success. The blog offers a diversity of posts from the philosophical to the political, all offered as insightful rather than inciteful. That is to say, the blog is not an effort to sway politically, but rather to induce thoughtful consideration of all subjects broached.

Summing Up Intrepid Ideas

Intrepid Ideas is a blog about thought and ultimately action, as stimulating thought really has no point without the latter. It is a blog charged with energy, sure to get you more fired up about the impact of your own mindset and the courage to give life to thoughts otherwise left unsaid.

It’s Like Exercise For The Cynical

Yoga for CynicsWhere to Find Yoga For Cynics:

Yoga For Cynics

Categorizing Yoga For Cynics was one of the hardest parts of writing this review (and perhaps I’ve still gotten it wrong). Capturing the essence of what the blog is was a close second place. So what is Yoga For Cynics?

Dr Jay Winston, the author, describes it as this: “possibly having something to do with yoga, cynicism, writing, politics, coffee, things to do while drinking coffee, art, music, the great outdoors, the great indoors, the not-so-great outdoors and indoors, drugs, and/or life in general, or maybe not.”

Yoga For Cynics – Why You Should Go

If you are still unsure the one thing to be sure of is that you are not alone; Yoga for Cynics is something of a “see it to believe it” experience where you have to visit and experience the blog for yourself before you can really figure out what it is.

At first take you might assume this to be a place of negativity and bad attitude; upon further reading you are more likely to see it as a place for thought and contemplation. That doesn’t mean contemplating cynicism, either; it’s more like a way of overcoming cynicism by stretching the mind to see all the possibilities.

Summing Up Yoga For Cynicism

What you get out of Dr. Jay’s blog will rely a lot on what you put into it; if you visit with only seconds to spare you may only scratch the surface of his random, deep thought process. If you go ready for a challenge you will exercise your brain even more, and delve deeper into the heart of the issue and to what it means to you. Yoga requires a bit more of your time and commitment, so choose wisely when you visit, and know that you’ll get something out of it for whatever you are able to put in.

Identity Check

If you find yourself feeling increasingly like one lost in the crowd of politics and opinion, one whose voice and interests are neither heard nor reflected in politics or society today, it my be time for your own Identity Check. Getting back to the core of who you are might be tough given the many voices we hear through mainstream media, but this blog by Anok just might help.

Identity Check – Why You Should Go

If you were looking for a concise explanation of what Identity Check is you might label it as political commentary. Not one for the confines of labeling, though, Anok might balk at such a short and sweet explanation of this blog (however in the interest of communication, we’d expect to be forgiven this once). And Anok would be right to hesitate to accept that narrow a labeling of this blog, as it is really more.

Anok is self-described as a person ready for a social and governmental change; not a strict anarchist, but apparently looking for something better than the current state of affairs. The person, and it would appear the blog too, is “constantly growing and changing.” Posts range from insightful consideration of current affairs to humorous posts, to political analysis, analysis of the issues, and respectful debate.

Summing Up Identity Check

Anok is a person with passion, but not one so passionate that readers are alienated from the blog. Respect and meaningful debate are central to Identity Check, and indeed it enjoys a healthy community of commentary; and Anok welcomes it all—supporters and detractors—with grace. Agree or disagree, but consider Anok’s researched and meaningful posts for the food for thought that they offer. In the interest of being concise again, as one commenter put it, this blog provides “good stuff to chew on.”

Random Political Thoughts And News

There’s not much to tell about Monkey Suit, the author of the Random Political Thoughts And News blog, because we don’t have an ‘About’ page to go on. But we can at least talk about what the blog and its community is‚Äîwhich is pretty much as the blog’s name indicates.

Random Political Thoughts And News – Why You Should Go

Random is a good way to describe this blog‚Äîit’s a hit or miss mix-up of political news and some commentary. No political person or subject is safe, and any may be the next to appear atop the blog. From Presidential hopefuls to election predictions, to media and industry experts and policies‚Äîyou never know who will get Monkey Suit fired up.

While Monkey Suit does interject with his own insight and opinions, he also presents a lot of food for thought. Some of the news is nothing new, but talked about from angles you might not have considered or understood, and some of it is stuff you might have missed. But agree or disagree, there’s enough there to fuel your thought and motivate you into caring a little more about a country and an issue you may have disregarded as being something you could do little about anyway.

Naturally a political blog is a place open for discussion. Visitor comments have been kept civil and insightful‚Äîa nice feature for a political blog‚Äîand offer further insight and consideration. The benefit here is that you can read and learn and discuss with a community, and not just follow it because you agree with the author. Hopefully that’s an aspect that Monkey Suit can maintain as the blog continues to grow.

Summing Up Random Political Thoughts And News

Random Political Thoughts is a young blog; already, though, there are readers willing to speak their peace and add to the conversation. Go here to read the news you might have missed, the news you know but want to hear more about from a source other than main-stream media, or just for entertainment when you need to hear someone bust on a politician.
