Our words are what define us as a society, in many ways.  Words may be turned into images, such as plays, or movies, or even defined further through actions associated with the words, but it is the words that hold the definition. Many speak of those who have fought for […]

I used to view the initiative process as a victory for direct democracy—the people’s voice bypassing the corruption and deal making of legislative bodies. After living in California for 20 plus years, it has become clear to me that this lawmaking strategy needs to be constitutionally banned. Nationwide. In California, […]

As most everyone knows by now, Lou Dobbs has reported that someone has taken a shot at him and his wife or at the very least, his house. The police dispute Dobbs’ claims, but that hasn’t stopped America’s self-proclaimed Toughest Sheriff Joe from jumping on the Dobbs bandwagon. Somehow, our […]

The “Matthew Shepard & James Byrde, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act was signed today by President Obama. This is a great Bill, a long time coming. Localities can succumb too easily to the prejudices of their populations, & making these FEDERAL crimes pulls that potential of injustice out of the […]

The “drama”, the bogus articles about “infighting” & the “Presidents reluctance to support the Public Option” (all to eagerly parroted on Huffington Post).. the nonsense about “triggers” was simply political brinkmanship by MASTERS.

In surprising news President Barack Hussein Obama has won the Nobel Peace prize in the first year of his presidency. While the president is under constant attack at how from the right wing he has already begun to transform the world, especially America’s image around the world. This prize is […]

I have had the misfortune to have caught what appears to be the Swine Flu. Not only do I appear to have all the symptoms but my lungs seem to be filled with bacon fat. This has resulted in my being stranded on the couch for days watching far too […]

According to end timers who quote many mythical (religious) references the world is suppose to end 2012. This is one of the reason many right wing end time believers think President Obama is the anti-Christ. To be fair it seems like every president since Nixon has been dubbed as the […]

Probably the thing that has surprised me most after the election of President Obama is how large swaths of this country simply cannot accept the tenants of our representative democracy.  Instead a large minority continue to demonize and mischaracterize the very progressive policies that people voted for even though conservative […]

We Americans are being very wasteful with our natural resources of emotional energy. This is causing a slew of problems affecting our environment including adding a great deal of additional CO2 into the atmosphere,  pollution of political discourse  and a shortage of positive emotional energy. I think the time has […]

When it comes to huge impacting realities about American society, The MSM is militant…they employ a “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. For example, it was an open secret for decades that Catholic Priests had been abusing young boys. It was so well known “unofficially” that it became a throw away […]
