As Michael Moore’s new film, “Capitalism, A Love Story” is coming out its seems an appropriate time to reflect on the character of American capitalism and how it has usurped social responsibility and democracy in this country. In the remarkable documentary, “The Corporation”, a segment of the film is dedicated […]

Live from The Chicago Municipal Opera House, bequeathed to the city by Charles Foster (Citizen) Kane, it’s Oscar Night! Tonight is a special ceremony, wherein we honor the Best Pictures to NOT win Best Picture. At what other venue could we possibly hold this auspicious event? Citizen Kane is more than just […]

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 […]

All being real healthcare reform with a public option and nothing being no healthcare bill at all. Senator Cantwell (D-WA) is the second Finance Committee member along with Senator Rockefeller (D-WV) to say this will not vote for Chairman Baucus’ (D-MT) health insurance reform bill in it’s present form. “I […]

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 […]

Alright folks. We were on on the verge of a depression, barely missed total bank melt down, and must muddle through a few years of recovery before anything like full employment and prosperity can be expected. We are ensnared in two intractable wars, plus a war against deranged religious extremism […]

Senator Baucus (D-MT) finally unleashed his bill which is mostly a giveaway to the healthcare industry.  Re-releasing this post to remind everyone what’s in the bill. The plan has no Public Option with possible co-ops or triggers in it’s place.  The bad fact is this is not the worst part […]

Teabaggers believe that czars are bad, generally because it is an unfamiliar word in their vocabulary. When informed that Reagan also used czars, and that czars were expanded under George W. Bush, the crowd expressed dumbfounded confusion and disbelief. Their level of skepticism increased further as they were educated on the roles of the czars here in America. That they wield no executive power and act as advisers.

Progressives to their credit are becoming more and more aware of what much of these teabag protests are all about, blatant racism. After all just reading the signs of the teabaggers this past weekend exposes the type of people they are. However we also have to be cognizant of the […]

Is it irony that in today’s media, some of the highest levels of integrity and honesty are exhibited by comedians? Fortunately however, there are still some reporters out there.

Today is what they call in the news business, a “Monday”. Sorry…that’s what we all call today. I meant, today is what they call in the news business a “Slow News Day”. A lack of young white girls being abducted, no new discoveries of the next comfort food that will […]

Most of the contact information and links to petitions you will need to fight for real universal healthcare reform.

Republican Teabaggers, in all of their intellectual dexterity, descended on the US Capitol today. A crowd numbering 5,000 or 2 million people (I’m sure official numbers are due shortly) came from near and far wielding well written and thought provoking placards meant to make a strong, unified statement! The classiest […]

I was chosen for jury duty on September 10.   The rest were allowed to leave and resume their lives and for some of them, their jobs in the nearby World Trade Center.  Having to submit to the inevitability of jury duty, I left  the courthouse and gave myself a lemons-into-lemonade […]

Bush used what he called patriotism as a wedge to defend his disastrous policies.  But he was not being patriotic he was being nationalistic.  The difference between the two are often conflated by those like Bush and Cheney that want to use the word patriotism for political ends. NATIONALISTS, follow […]

Before I start this entry, I would like to take a moment to remember the 9/11 tragedy and its victims during, and after the event. 9/11 had to be one of the most surreal experiences of my life, topped only by the deaths of my parents the 1+ year prior […]
