If you did not know, the dining room table that Barney Frank refused to debate was a LaRouchie. LaRouchies are present all across the nation, including the town hall I attended a few weeks back in Pasadena, CA. LaRouchies are deranged lunatics. They have attached themselves to the Dem party […]

“…The point about solar energy is that there is so much of it that you only have to tap 5% of it at an efficiency as tiny as 1% and you already have energy over 5 times the whole world’s present consumption…what are we waiting for?” –Derek Abbott, Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Adelaide in Australia

Blogs don’t make the evening news; angry mobs do. Is Krugman, like the WH, trying to motivate the “progressives” to take to the streets, and be SEEN as well as heard?

Despite complaints about his ego, filmmaking style and his overexposure in the 2004 elections, Michael Moore remains the most effective, progressive and influential filmmaker out there. Expect the MSM to attack Moore for the hypocrisy and corruption spotlighted in this film, as they did with Sicko and Fahrenheit 911. There […]

We can do this. We can rebuild our Congress. We have the technology, we can rebuild it, and it won’t cost $6 million dollars. This will be our revolution; 21st century style patriotism. The web will be our battleground, and we will win.

We’ve seen this same segment of the population before that is currently spewing hatred at the town hall meetings on health care. They were the same ones foaming at the mouth about the government at tea bag parties. The same ones screaming “Terrorist!” and “Kill him!” in reference to Obama […]

Well when Huffy first announced it’s creation of an “investigative team” I wondered what it would entail.  It looks like we now know.  They stalk the halls of the White House and talk to as many administration officials as possible to obtain anonymously quotes.  Then the most controversial statement they […]

Profits are a reward for taking risks. How can it be that a company makes a 30% margin being the gate keeper between you and your doctor? Why should a hospital chain make a 30% margin delivering health care? How is that moral?   There is no risk in those businesses. […]

Seriously, what does the GOP stand for? Goofballs Opposing Progress? Now of course it’s understandable that the most  loyal Republicans include those opposing evolution, racial equality and integration, health care as a civil right, curbing global warming, peace and the laws of gravity.

I suppose the problem for John Bolton and the other NeoCon clowns is that Obama did not bomb N. Korea. The Rethugs demand a blood sacrifice. Seriously, Bolton compared the two women to soldiers.   He said that the president should have applied the same consideration that he would use when […]

The Basic Moral Justification for Universal Healthcare. Healthcare is a fundamental right for all human beings.  In societies that can afford universal healthcare like most in the industrialized world including the US it is criminal for healthcare not to be accessible to all citizens.  In fact it is a crime […]

Much is made now that the current GOP is the “Party of No”. But let’s remember that throughout American history conservatives have always been against progress. Whether it was first the Democrats in the 19th century or ultra conservative Republicans in the late 20th and early 21st century conservatives have […]

There was a contest for the nomination of the Dem party. The other major player in that contest was Hillary Clinton. Some of you liked her, I did not. I think we can all agree that she is a woman who gets what she wants if she possibly can.   She […]
