Toby Keith, Democrat, says:- I don’t know, but I expect the wealthy to write a check ’cause it’s as bad as it’s ever been. It would be unpatriotic not to try to save the country. I’m sure people will bitch about it, but if it meant we get to operate in this […]

In their Class War against Americans, what the wealthy fail to understand is blowback. Once a democracy no longer serve its people, they stop looking to elections to solve their problems and take their destiny (and pitchforks and torches) into their own hands.

Last week, I was here in Las Vegas to celebrate the end of DADT. Once (and hopefully future) Congresswoman Dina Titus discussed what happened in the last session of Congress to make this happen, and representatives from Harry Reid‘s office and Shelley Berkley’s office were also on hand to share […]

I truly think Californian Democratic “operative” David O Atkins needs to listen to this song:- If he’s a good boy, drinks his milk and goes to bed early and reads his history, he’ll find that song applied to all but two Democratic Presidents in the 20th Century and the Vice-Presidents […]

It’s ironic that this song was out around the time the Democratic Party imploded the first time. That was before most of this generation of whiners was about, so they wouldn’t remember. What’s even more oxymoronic is that some of these kidults are even getting elected to fairly important positions […]

When I was growing up in a Democratic kitchen, my parents made the difference between Democrats and Republicans abundantly clear. Keep in mind that this was in the 1960s, and I was a small child, just starting school, when Kennedy was elected. Before I knew the real difference between Democrats […]

OK, it’s official. Elizabeth Warren is running for the Senate in Massachusetts. She’s challenging big, bad Scott Brown, who’s voted with the Democrats as much as he has his own side, and who used the Tea Party financing to get elected and then kicked them to the curb. True, he […]

An article appeared today on OpenSecrets Blog concerning ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council) and the corporations who support their efforts, some 23 of the world’s largest. ALEC, for those who are not familiar, is made up of many corporate CEO’s and legislators, and writes “template” or model legislation that is […]

The world looks very much different now than it did 10 years ago.  The lives of every American changed forever that day and in the days that followed.  One transformation to come out of 9-11 was the rise of the new security state of the U.S.A.  The Patriot Act was […]

Did everybody hear that? Did you? Did you listen to every word? Do you know what it was? It was a good, old-fashioned labor leader exhorting a gaggle of workers gathered to celebrate the one day our country sets aside to honor its labor force. It was a rip-roarer of […]

The purpose of the American Jobs Act is simple: to put more people back to work and more money in the pockets of those who are working. It will create more jobs for construction workers, more jobs for teachers, more jobs for veterans, and more jobs for long-term unemployed.

Virginia Gubernatorial Candidate Bob McDonnell Holds Women's Rally

I usually try to get back to the Commonwealth once a year. I’ve lived for the past 30 years in the same part of England to which two other Virginia women, Pocahontas (my kinswoman) and Nancy Astor, were condemned; and so I feel that if I don’t wiggle my toes […]

You start out in 1954 by saying, “N—-r, n—-r, n—-r.” By 1968 you can’t say “n—-r”—that hurts you. Backfires. So you say stuff like forced busing, states’ rights and all that stuff. You’re getting so abstract now [that] you’re talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you’re talking about […]

If I was President and Congress was like, “No way we’re taxing rich people and stuff!” I would be so like, “Uh-uh, you’re gonna tax rich people, bitch!” and they would be so like, “Damn! Okay! We’ll tax rich people, just get out of my face!”

Calls for a presidential primary challenger seem to fall into common messaging traps that don’t help progressives on the whole.

What’s totally oxymoronic is that Hillary has suddenly been reconstructed as the Great (and White) Progressive Hope.
