What Would Batman Do?
by Saab Lofton

"I have never advocated war except as a means of peace."
--Ulysses S. Grant

"The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting."
--Sun Tzu

"Do you want to know what power is? Real power? It's not ending a life; it's saving it. It's looking in someone's eyes and seeing that they realize something they'll never forget: They owe you."
--Batman: Black and White, Volume Two

Know Thy Enemy or Tea Party Hypocrisy by Saab Lofton

Know Thy Enemy
or
Tea Party Hypocrisy
by Saab Lofton

"In the case of Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, he's planning to hold back $614 million in 'performance bonuses' from the plane's lead contractor Lockheed Martin. (And you thought only bankers and financial wheeler-dealers got performance bonuses!) But it's striking that there are no tea party movements out in the streets of America demanding our money back or claiming that we're going to be broken by this."
--Tom Engelhardt, a Yale AND Harvard graduate, March 19th, 2010

Uganda and Arizona? We're Comin' Fo' Ya! by Saab Lofton

Uganda and Arizona? We're Comin' Fo' Ya!
by Saab Lofton

"While the wicked stand confounded, call me with thy saints surrounded."
--The Boondock Saints

Don't get it twisted: The homophobes behind Uganda's anti-gay legislation are NOT equal to the white supremacists behind Arizona's anti-Latin legislation. Sure, they're both ignorant as pig shit, but whites are FAR more powerful than blacks, as I explained in the following commentary years ago ...

Superman: Illegal Alien
by Saab Lofton

I'll make this short and sweet (as opposed to my usual, thousand word-plus pieces): The anti-Latin bigotry in Arizona right now is savage and intolerable, but I have a weapon that Latinos/Latinas can use against it ...

The Future of Humanity's Economy by Saab Lofton

The Future of Humanity's Economy
by Saab Lofton

"Money is a terrible thing. Why do people work at jobs in Star Trek? Why does someone become a baker? Because the family is going to starve to death? No. People become bakers because certain people love the smell of things baking."
--Gene Roddenberry, from Yvonne Fern's book, The Last Conversation

What YOU Can Do by Saab Lofton

What YOU Can Do
by Saab Lofton

"In Oregon, author Andy Mangels organizes an annual October event called Wonder Woman Day to raise awareness of domestic violence. Original artwork of the Amazon princess created by the superstars of comic book artists is auctioned off, with the money raised going to women's shelters."
--Mike Madrid, from his book, The Supergirls

Pacifists, NOT Masochists! by Saab Lofton

Pacifists, NOT Masochists!
by Saab Lofton

"Peace is not the absence of war, but a virtue based on strength of character."
--philosopher Baruch Spinoza (1632 to 1677)

In the Star Wars saga, the Jedi are able to psychically detect and physically manipulate emotions in a variety of supernatural ways. Well, all too many whites in the peace movement are under the delusion that they're capable of the same exact thing and it's costing the rest of us dearly.

The Real Welfare Cheats
by Saab Lofton

"Probably the worst part of the S&L bailout is the message it sends to high-flying con men. It says, 'Plunder all you want. As long as your political connections are solid, you'll get to keep the money and probably won't suffer more than a slap on the wrist.' (Charles Keating only went to jail because his abuses were so extreme; he was the exception, not the rule.)"

Beware of False Prophets
by Saab Lofton

In the comics, Spider-Man's superheroic career was often hindered by the libel of J. Jonah Jameson's Daily Bugle, and boy, can I relate -- be it online stalkers or right-wing hate mail, my reputation has taken more hits than a crack pipe, and as D.J. Casey Kasem would say, the hits just keep on comin' ..!
