    A Thanksgiving Tradition - 201

    It is a tradition in my family to go around the Thanksgiving dinner table and ask who covered the dog in hair gel and sculpted her fur into a swear word. After that, we go around the table and share with each other those things in life that each of us are grateful for.

    Republican Congressmen to Sue

    Sen. Ted Cruz and the majority of Republican men in Congress explained that it was their sole responsibility to take the trash out in their house and that their wives’ unilateral action in taking it out makes it impossible for the trash to be taken out in the future.

    Memento 2: The U.S. News Media

    Out of the total of 36% of eligible voters who voted in this year’s election, even if Republicans averaged a 10% margin of victory over Dems overall (55% to 45%), that means only 19% of American voters voted for Republicans. So Democrats should be running scared because 81% of U.S. voters didn’t vote for Republicans?

America Poster

In Dineesh D’Souza’s newest (and awful) “psuedo-documentary”, on September 11, 1777 (yeah! 9/11) General George Washington is gunned down by a British assassin and in the next few moments we see the Statue of Liberty and the Faces of Mt. Rushmore crumble like dust into the air

Chris McDaniel’s campaign manager and Mississippi state Senator, Melanie Sojourner, took to Facebook on Independence Day – not to express her patriotism but to swear she will never ever endorse Thad Cochran.

Hillary Clinton2

Hillary and Bill Clinton are incredibly wealthy people who move in the circles of the same wealthy and powerful who have inordinate control over our democracy and society, they are friends and peers with them…so is it most likely that if elected, she’s going to hammer her best friends to help “the others”?

Medicare_and_Medicaid_GDP_Chart

We can scream about republican recalcitrance, but when we had power (albeit brief), we spent it developing policies that favored the 1% and submarined any efforts to punish those who robbed the bottom 99% percent of their lifesavings. We created the stimulus which was trickle-down lite.

We are “responsible for the greatest trust ever confided to a political society.” (Patrick Henry) But as polling demonstrates the American Public has shirked its responsibility in failing to be the informed electorate that John Adams believed was the foundation of any democracy.

The story of a unique flagpole and what it stands for.

Warren Matthews

If you want to correct the error Matthews and so many other people have been making for years now, you will have to stop talking policy and start explaining strategy and the way our democracy functions.

Thomas_P._Rossiter,_Signing_of_the_Constitution

If one engages with a theocrat and takes the time to debunk enough of their claims, eventually, they will get into ambiguous territory like what was the “Real” intent of the founders.

So many, many times I hear so many of my fellow Americans claim that the United States is a Christian nation, as our founding fathers intended it to be. They continue to claim that our founders were god fearing, Christian men who for all intents and purposes designed our nation […]
