Today marks 8 years since 9/11. It is a day to remember those we lost in that cowardly and cruel attack, remember the bravery of firefighters, police, volunteers and those who fought back against the terrorists despite the risk and odds to avert further tragedy. Unfortunately, it’s also a day […]

Originally written 9/13/01 Dear Friends: Many of you know that in times of tragedy I tend to feel the need to write in order to find some clarity in my emotions & peace in my mind. When Princess Diana, Walter Payton, John F. Kennedy, Jr. died, when Columbine happened, I […]

Wow! Last night was incredible. I must say, I found the entire Presidential Address to Congress to be IMMENSELY entertaining. I mean, what can I say? How often do you get to see a party behave like petulant children, unable to get their way, and therefore throwing fits DURING a presidential speech?

Oh, there was a’hooting and a’hollering.

Oh, there was a’waving of random signs and pieces of paper in the air.

And to top it off? The phrase heard around the world:

“YOU LIE!”

I simple can’t get over it. I was just so sick over this. I am shaken to my core. If the President can’t find respect & safety on the hallowed floor of the House for a joint speech to Congress among elected officials were democracy is always – until last […]

The president was up against it.  The whole centerpiece for his young presidency was on the line and in jeopardy from those on the left and right alike. President Obama took the podium nervous with almost half the crowd wanting him to fail. He more than anyone knew if he […]

If you once believed in “yes we can”, well, here’s your chance to be part of that “we”. But can isn’t enough anymore. This time, it’s “yes we WILL.”

President Obama’s speech tonight was just the prescription Health Care Reform needed and made me remember how he inspired me during the election. And Republican Rep. Joe Wilson who screamed, “YOU LIE!” in the midst of the speech was just the overdose the GOP needed to go into a coma. […]

Soon your President will give his speech to your schools, frightening really. The skies will turn dark, the sea will part and lighting bolts will crash to earth, be prepared. He is going to say how important education is for your future generations, how can he say that, how dare […]

Yipe! An article on the AP this morning should cause any supporter of a  public plan and those anticipating that Pres. Obama would come out strong for it in his speech to Congress, some pause and concern: White House: public health care plan is negotiable By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR, Associated Press […]

The current backlash against President Obama, brought on by the attempt to pass health care reform, has obscured the legislative record of the past eight months. I took it upon myself to do a little research into the bills produced by congress and passed by the president since his inauguration, […]

“Is our children learning?”  This famous grammatically challenged question posed by ex-President Bush, the child who was left behind, has been granted renewed significance thanks to President Obama’s unprecedented impertinence to think, as President, he can talk to our children. Well, unprecedented if you don’t count Bush and Reagan, FDR, […]

IMHO the only mistake Obama has made thus far is thinking that Rethugs would play well with others. He HAD to give them a go at it; that is what his campaign is about. Ok, so now he saw how well that went over; he tried to let them do […]

The sooner we as Americans realize that we are on the same team, seeking the same goals of LIFE, LIBERTY, AND A LITTLE HAPPINESS, the sooner we can identify the true obstacles and overcome them.

Yesterday, the top headline screaming in 40 point electric red font on the most popular progressive political blog focused on one of the most important issues facing the nation, namely, Diane Sawyer taking over for Charlie Gibson. Later that day, it was bumped as the lead story to share the […]
