    Ted Cruzin' For a Political Br

    Ted Cruz has as much of a chance at winning the Presidency as Liberty University’s founder Jerry Falwell does in having a snowball fight where he currently is but anyone who knows anything about Republicans knows that to them, reality is just a liberal/socialist/anti-colonial plot.

    47 GOP Senators Write Love Let

    “Ares, you are so cute! We love everything about you and the awesome wars you bring us, it’s like, so sweet and gets us so hot! All we can think about is Armageddon-it-on with you!”

    Remembering Selma - The Civil

    I went to a church service last night on the anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery March at a small AME congregation. Mostly black, mostly middle class farmers. The minister, part time, as he is a farmer too, spoke passionately of the zeal of those protestors who stood up against injustice and of the cause that they lifted up. BUT, he also challenged the congregation to do more than just recall….

    Netanyahu's Alternative to Ave

    According to Netanyahu, what’s best for “all of us”, is to not try to negotiate with Iran to stop them developing a nuclear weapon. So if they need to be stopped…and negotiating is foolish, what one path is left to stop them? War. And that’s all that Netanyahu really wants.

Kim Jong Il - Santa

It’s that time of year when magical wishes are in the air and people believe that fantasies can come true…no, it’s not Rand Paul’s Presidential campaign launch, it’s Christmas!

NYPD Union

Instead of seeing a psychotic cop-killer for what he was, some NYPD officers, their police union and prominent Republicans are exploiting this tragedy to validate the righteousness of their racism.

Extremists of any religion are the downfall of their religion. Those extremists hurt people of their religion and others as well. For proof, you need look no further than the Muslim extremists killing indiscriminately which gives Islam a black eye or worse. Of course Christianity has those vile “Westboro Baptist” extremists. They don’t like anyone. Seem to hate other religions and soldiers and just about everyone. There are examples of extremists in most all religions.

A Bit of History: Cuba and the USA

Cuba-vs-US

Cuba and the US have had a long history of adversarial relations. Yet we have diplomatic relations with Vietnam. Cuba didn’t kill 50,000 Americans, but we have ostracized Cuba! Why? Why have we not done what President Obama has just done long ago?

black lives matter march NYC

In the end, no one can maintain their power because of the inverse property of power, every action creates an equal and opposite reaction. And that is our eternal job as the majority of human beings on this planet, to be that equal and opposite reaction to those who accumulate power and use it to gratify themselves at the expense of the lives and well being of others.

GOP Inquisition

Republicans argued that the information in the Spanish Inquisition Torture Report was faulty, claiming that there was no torture but just “enhanced inquisitional procedures”.

President George W Bush visits CIA Headquarters, March 20, 2001.

What we know confidently now is that torture did take place under the Bush Administration by the CIA, that it didn’t work or help keep Americans safe, that it permanently undermined our nation’s moral authority in the world and that there is absolutely no regret or apology from those who oversaw and committed it.

It is one thing to be a black man and fear the police but it is another more intimidating thing to see the justice system protect and insulate the police from any harm when they murder unarmed black men.

congress poll 2014

Republicans have every right to claim that the election was a statement of support for them and a rejection of Obama…the Supreme Court has already ruled that lying is protected under the 1st Amendment and all that Republicans are trying to do is strengthen the 1st Amendment.
