Taken one by one, many of the troubling events we’re confronting at this moment in our civilization may have specific causes that appear unique. However, when viewed as a whole, the killing of true health care reform, the bailout that helped banks but not citizens,  the hatred and racism driving […]

A Reckoning Long Overdue

Posted by nellie On Dec - 13 - 2009 17 COMMENTS

Friday night on Vox Populi, I mentioned that I had been posting the HP Bush Years Posters to answer Obama bashers across the net. I believe it was escribicat who asked what the Bush Years Posters were, and I promised to post something about them. It occurs to me as […]

Got my mind wandering. Apparently some chappie has a book out, California After Arnold, or some such.   And apparently he had the opportunity to give a copy to Arnold at some social doo or other.   Word has it that Arnold poked him in the chest and whined that nobody knew […]

A 20-something photographer professional acquaintance of mine, a twin, came to me and disclosed a litany of things that weren’t going well:  a male friend who had an ambivalent approach-avoid response to her, not sure if he wanted to be a friend or a lover but nonetheless could not stop […]

I would like to communicate to you my sincere concerns over the overall premise and day to day operation of your website, the Huffington Post. If I did not care on how the image of Huffington Post reflects on all progressives, within and outside of the blogosphere, I would just walk away and say nothing, but it is considered a “representative” source for progressive thought. Therefore, I must speak on these issues.

I find myself rather in the minority in my fondness for Christoper Hitchens.   It has been said, with very real credibility, that he is an opportunist who chooses his stance at any given moment based on currently popular opinion.   The accusation has evidence to back it up.   He certainly is […]

Reprinted from “DocStrangelove’s” message on the HadEnoughington Post… “For what it’s worth, I just heard from my friend on the west coast known as “MrCreosot­­e” and it seems that he is NOT currently in limbo as originally thought. He told me that his profile is now gone and it appears […]

Hi, I’m Rob-S, and I’m a Moderatorholic {Audience}  Hi, Rob {Rob}  I’ve come here to confess I’ve been a heavy handed, two fisted moderator for over two years. {Audience}  Tell us more, brother Rob. {Rob}  It all started when I wandered in off the street one night into Sister Arianna’s […]

Here it is people, the answer. (The question, by the way, is: politics – why?) The answer is: Hume’s Guillotine’: One of the core philosophical problems of all time. That is ‘‘can an ought-statement (we ought to do …) be entailed by an is-statement or set of is-statements (the situations […]

Cartoon by Jeff Parker – Courtesy of Politicalcartoons.com – http://www.cagle.com/news/Thanksgiving09/main.asp I saw this cartoon and I had to share it with everyone.  It says so much of the worldview of our conservative brethran, and yet if it was the shoe on the other foot…

I’d been planning to offer some thoughts on another right wing meme, “political correctness,” to follow up on my piece about “personal responsibility.” With the latest furor over “Bow Gate,” today seemed like a good time to post it. As usual, the right wing gets its hooks into our psyche […]

Welcome to the second meeting of the seminar. I need perhaps to clarify our purpose here. First, regarding the seminar concept: I am hoping that we can all work to teach each other interesting and useful lessons on various topics. My vision is that we would come together on a […]

In ancient times, when the Earth was young and teabagging was part of a cultured afternoon, merchants would provide those who frequented their establishments with a quaint, old fashioned consideration called “customer service”. Then came the 1980’s and the era of “Greed is good” (not to mention Jordache Jeans and […]

FINALLY, an Attorney General & a President that actually EMBRACE our Constitution & have not only RESPECT for it’s precepts, but FAITH in them as well.

One of the frustrations I have with conservative talking points is that they contain a grain of truth. Arguing against “personal responsibility” can be like trying to argue against feeding your own children. Thinking about the phrase and what it means, the interpretation that leaps to my mind is: “People […]
