    What do Republicans Stand For?

    Instead of letting the GOP get away with trying to create an anti-identity based solely on what they oppose and want to repeal, it’s a good time to recognize who they really are as a party and what they truly stand for.

    INcensed: Republicans Surprise

    Sure, people get away with lots of terrible things until they don’t. And Mike Pence found that out to his utter shock. “Really? Americans don’t like it when you make it legal to be bigoted as long as you hide behind ‘religious beliefs’? Who woulda thunk that?”

Unfortunately, since religion is such a minefield for politicians, Americans have become accustomed to disassociating religious extremists from their religion so as not to offend mainstream religious voters.

A lot of tough questions have to be addressed if we are to have a real conversation about race. And all of us have to face realities without excuses.

As a 21st Century Will Rogers, Stewart has spoken truth to those in power with an astoundingly consistent and brilliant wit and much to his own surprise, became the primary source of news for a generation.

marriage equality

Roy Moore’s resemblance to George Wallace is very striking. Both justified their hateful prejudices as moral and democratic imperatives, warned of terrible consequences from not sustaining their bigotry and both made sweeping, dictatorial-styled edicts.

People dressed in military uniforms attend a ceremony to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings, in Old Bethpage, New York

Guys in Vietnam (I talk from experience about Nam) saw buddies wounded or killed. Many of us helped get them on choppers to get medical help. Most of us had to shoot enemy soldiers. Believe me that is not easy for some of us. I know it haunts me. It goes against human nature to kill other human beings. Oh, there are some people who like killing, no doubt. But I think most folks do not enjoy taking life from another human.

heart sick

In a week when Republicans campaign for the good old days of measles epidemics and Black Plague (“We should have the freedom to choose whether or not we become lepers!”), this week’s music thread is totally sick…well…about feeling sick or feeling good. So share your songs about being sick in […]

american-sniper

American Sniper is the first truly great film made about the war in Iraq. It is not a celebration of war; or a call to action against Muslims. It is a sad film about the bravery of warriors in battles whose purpose is lost in the fog of war.

      With all of the hoopla surrounding the films screened in the Obama White House, I got curious about what the past presidents watched. What follows is by no means complete, but an interesting bit of history.

    • The 100 Foot Journey 220px-The_Hundred_Foot_Journey_(film)_poster

      The film is a truly great mixture of drama, resistance to the forces of politics, the adroit combination comedy, and love story, in a culinary battle for the utmost Michilin Star rating for an established French fine dining enterprise that is a mere 100 feet apart from a brand new (to the village) Indian restaraunt.
