During last Friday’s Vox Populi, we were discussing how the GOP/Tea Party, assisted hugely by Fox, the MSM and corporations, has foisted this fraudulent series of racist and hateful “issues” on the nation and into our politics. Pres. Obama, being a thoughtful man of reason, responds earnestly to accusations about […]

In my various meanderings around the whole of existence and parts of New Jersey, I have had the pleasure of making the acquaintance of God, Satan and other well recognized talking heads. It’s been my honor to share their blogs here at The Planet. As Fate would have it (if […]

I’ve been thinking a lot about Watergate lately. Watergate, as much as it was a political coming-of-age for America, coincided with my own personal coming-of-age. The actual break-in occurred just weeks after I’d graduated from high school and the initial furore continued throughout the summer as I prepared to leave […]

The GOP’s superficial message to Americans is, “Government is your enemy, trust us, we are the government, we should know.” It is easy to boil down what their real motivations are, further siphoning tax money and public wealth into the hands of the wealthy and the only way to do […]

Heading out to searing Las Vegas for Netroots Nation and am hoping to provide updates of my adventures in this gathering of godless, communist, socialist, white-hating enemies of America. BTW, should I hit on 16? Hope I don’t disappoint, so much going on I may have only fleeting moments to […]

In 2008, a majority of voters seemed to have recognized that the GOP’s policy of allegiance to the wealthy and destruction of our constitution, principles and economy was really not something that they wanted to continue. The voters wanted change and elected Barack Obama. Here we are, a scant year […]

As, some of you know, my passion for politics extends ‘across the pond’ as they say. I didn’t think of writing anything until results started streaming in, and that for a subject I feel deserves more notice from us Yanks, my little O/T post was clearly not gonna cut it. […]

A poll has finally come out which provides a bit of demographics on Tea Partiers. The MSM is spinning it as, “They’re actually not poor and ignorant, they’re better off than average Americans!” because of course, the contrary to what we’ve all witnessed is news and they want the conflict […]

When we last left The Man of Steele, he was cornered by Moral Outrage outside a lesbian bondage club in West Hollywood! Using his Super Ignorance, The Man of Steele closed his eyes and ignored Moral Outrage, causing it to not exist for him and was able to escape its […]

The GOP appeals to the child in people (just look at the cartoonish characters representing it in the media and Congress). The child they appeal to is the one that throws tantrums, beats up weaker kids for their milk money, is scared of people and things that are different, lies […]

Come November, the Republican Party may need to change their mascot from the elephant to the lemming. In the aftermath of Scott Brown’s upset election in January, the GOP redoubled their bets on the failure of Health Care Reform. As they had for the last year, they showed no hesitation […]

As I began this section, The Players and Their Organizations, I realized they could not be covered in one post.  So what I will do is touch on The Family here and do a more detailed post on them next. Then in the last post I will consolidate Impact and Consequences […]

My first goal in this series is to define the Christian Right and provide some of their history.  The Christian Right has been insinuating themselves into public discourse since the late 70’s.  By the end of the 80’s it was generally assumed that the Christian Right consisted entirely of evangelical […]

I was originally going to write this series of articles in tandem with a partner however I have decided to  move ahead on my own.  I hope I am up to the challenge.   What I will attempt to do is provide some history to understand the Religious Rights beliefs and […]

I am a Virginian.  My mother was a Virginian, and so was her father. His family came to the colonies out of necessity and choice. During the English Civil War in the 1640s, my ever-so-many-great grandfather backed the losing horse (thus, establishing a long tradition in my family): King Charles […]

Due to the work of dogged investigative reporting, it has been uncovered that the GOP is actually a scripted “reality” show for the Fox network. The tipoffs were all there, if you used Morse code to decrypt all of Sarah Palin’s winks, you would have gotten the messages, “Hi Mom!”, […]
