Here's to you!

Obama is offering cultural reform in return for the left and independents acquiescence about the core economic issues of our nation. The genius of his strategy is that unlike the poor righties, I believe he intends to deliver on many of those reforms.

Now, as is often pointed out to me, Mr. Carlin is indeed  “just a comedian”.  But so was Samuel Clemens.  His words carried no less weight with the American people than those of the most popular politician.  So forgive me for leading off with a true hero of mine. Democracy […]

Nuttin' But Da Truth!

We now have what amounts to another debate on HCR and we need to be better prepared for it this time.
Let’s make this argument be based on facts and reality.

Loads of people are in high-gear whine mode about the deal cut in Washington by the President with the Republicans last week. One of the lesser ad hominems being thrown at the President at the moment is the accusation that he’s morphed into a Republican at last. I beg to differ. […]

When it comes to the Bush Tax Cuts, the Devil is in the details…and the bargaining room.

GOP=Proverbial-Bigoted-Brick-Wall

Thank you for signing on to the obstructionist dog and pony show contrived by your Republican colleagues in the Senate. Have you signed the “secret” letter being circulated in the hallways of the Senate Building, akin to passing notes in study hall?

Can this country be all for everyone and no one has to pay taxes? Roads, schools, hospitals, parks to be built. Wars to be fought and the country to be defended.

constitution - obsolete

Kesmarn’s brilliant article, Please, tear that price tag off!, impresses the powerful image of our democracy and citizenry as a 500 pound patient, too bloated to help itself or accomplish even the most minor tasks required for its subsistence and survival. Citizens United may have been the last straw in […]

Democrats have wasted an historic moment.  A mandate that is given by the people once every couple of generations.  The people spoke and said bring change and restore our country.  Democrats of course talked a good game saying we will work for the people and against the plutocracy wrought by […]

Tea Party Pledge Club2

Last Thursday, The GOP released their “Pledge” to America and the only positive thing one can say about them after seeing what’s in it is that Republicans finally have shown they believe in recycling. Their “pledge” was very general, promising cotton candy clouds and chocolate rain drops (via the same […]

I guess campaign season’s started in earnest now. Congress has returned from its summer hiatus. (If you think they have too long a holiday, come to the UK. Parliament’s out July, August and September, the last month being the bunfest where they go off to the seaside to have their […]

Midterm election articles

It is a given that the party out of power picks up seats in the off year election. Why is that? The logic would seem simple. American voters have the patience and vision of a nearsighted 3 year old. Every two years after they have decided that they want a […]
