  While scientists remain puzzled as to the cause of  the dramatic decline in honeybee populations in North America and elsewhere, some are speculating the cause may very much be human related; however, not technological, but  philosophical.

As my exams draw closer and closer, I find myself staring closer and closer at the contents of the various textbooks that lay strewn around my room. One of these textbooks is a particularly hefty anthology of poets and poems that I’m to know for one of my English exams. […]

The Neo-Confederate Seal

In this interview, Loewen links the Civil War era to the later era known as the Nadir of Race Relations (1890-1940), and further, to the modern day Neo-Confederate movement, which tends to look amazingly like it’s twin brother…the Tea Party.

I recently read the new book by DailyKos founder Markos Moulitsas and I found it more than slightly disturbing. Not because the content was shocking, but because his analysis was spot on.

My very first effort at writing here on PlanetPOV was about this subject, one that I believe to be of vital importance to the future of our democracy. After a discussion this morning about the Republicans’ plans to regain control of Congress in the next election, I felt that this […]
