About

Introductions are important, because they can offer us a glimpse of what to expect in the future.  I’m known by the screen name Harold Stickeehands. I came up with it on a whim and it should give you some insight into my sense of humor.

I have a background in Political Science.  My particular areas of focus, within the field of Political Science, include International Relations, Political Philosophy, Government Institutions and Voter Behavior.  The Press, Politics, Media and Current Affairs, are my primary interests and writing subjects.

I would describe myself as a less attractive, less talented, less successful, slightly less dead, sober version of Chris Farley. I love comedy and entertainment in general.  Books are the bane of my existence and reading feels tedious.  The concept of audio books is very appealing … perhaps I’ll buy one someday.

Note: I’ve added Ask an Imam to this site. I’ve done so knowing that it may draw controversy. That’s why I added it. Many have noted the hypocrisy of those in the media and Ask an Imam is meant to address this. Most in the media treat Islam with kid gloves, while Christianity is skewered in popular culture on a daily basis. Christians and Christianity are mocked without a second thought. However, Islam is frequently given a pass and all but excused from being subjected to biting satire and comical derision. Ask an Imam is designed to help fill the void left by the media and highlight their hypocrisy.

If the harsh treatment of some religions is acceptable then the harsh treatment of all religions is acceptable. The day those in the media end this hypocrisy, and voices within Islam speak out forcefully against the distortions and demonization of Jews, is the day I will take down Ask an Imam.

P.S. I’m a Deist

    I want to look smart by commenting on the posts on this site! I want people to sit in the glow of their computer screens nodding slowly to themselves at the gnomic wisdom of my two cents. Ah screw it…I’ve just been struggling for half an hour to figure out what I can put in this comment box as I feel compelled to support someone that belikes himself to the general human condition by using the handle Stickeehands. Because what are we all really doing every day but jerking off to kill time?

    I may post something of substance once I read the posts on here in detail 😀

    Your insensitivity to social dynamics and power differences among groups is appalling. ‘Nuff said.

    I’m confused. You think attacking a person’s religion is undesirable behavior, and yet you do it on your site. Maybe “they” are waiting for you to stop the bigotry? I cannot conceive that participating in an evil is an effective way to stop an evil. Sounds like a vicious cycle to me.

      Well, that’s not likely since Ask an Imam is a relatively recent creation in stark contrast to the hypocrisy that has pervaded the MSM and Hollywood. The hypocrisy can only end once it has been made painfully obvious to everyone. My humble little blog is my attempt to help spread awareness.

      It’s easy to call me a bigot, but I’m simply advocating for equal abuse or protection for all and the end to double standards. Either all the cows are sacred or none of them are. Not even the cows that many live in fear of offending. It’s your right to disagree with my methods, but, unless you’re also doing something to try and end the double standard, your concern rings hollow.
