Social Conservative Sucker Punch: Republican Contenders Compete For Hearts and Souls of the Ridiculously Simple-Minded

Today, with the 2012 election campaigns ready for kickoff, Republican contenders are ramping up their base by playing ‘who can be the most socially conservative and fundamentally religious’ against each other, despite the fact that the real issues facing the country – jobs, economy, security, health – have nothing to do with ‘social’ ideas like gay marriage and Planned Parenthood.

Conservative Watchdog Thinks Gays Are Taking Over TV, Blames ‘Glee’

Admittedly I am not a fan of the Fox hit TV show, Glee – and I understand I am in the minority here. However, the show seems to be taking a large and unjustified hit from conservative-types who are latching on to its sexual themes as though they are the signs of the coming Rapture.

GOP Pledge to America – Lets Hold Them To It

GOP Pledge to America – Lets Hold Them To It

The GOP made a pledge to America back in 2010, which is really just a regurgitation of what they have been saying for 20 years. The difference is, they signed this document, to them it was probably a symbolic gesture, but to me it was more. Let me show you what the Pledge to America stated, in case you all forgot or wanted it wiped from your memory.

The President Who Isn’t

The President Who Isn’t

In political terms, Bill Clinton’s still a reasonably young man. As head of the Clinton Global Initiative, he’s frequently seen at high-powered and high-profiled events around the world and in the United States. I can’t remember another President who’s been interviewed as much and as often, post-Administration, by everyone from David Gregory on Meet the Press to David Letterman, right down to Jon Stewart. In fact, Bill Maher is messing his knickers at the prospect of getting Clinton on his program for an interview.

Fox News ratings speak for themselves: so what are smart people watching?

Fox News ratings speak for themselves: so what are smart people watching?

We live in highly publicized political times, where networks, publications, blogs, podcasts, tweets and more feed us a daily stream of information revolving around the state of our country and its place in the world. One such entity: Fox News, the bastion of Right-wing conservative media that has steadily increased its viewership and following since the early days of the G.W. Bush Presidency

Obama Gets Angry, Republicans Repeating History

Obama Gets Angry, Republicans Repeating History

When Americans blamed Republicans for the government shut down in 1995, one would think the GOP learned their lesson. But the eternally short memories of Republicans and their apparent failure to remember historical facts once again compels them to try something that failed. What is it about the GOP that makes them believe that they can hold America hostage?

Attorney Bills, Bill of Rights, Balloons, and the Next Step in Wisconsin!!

I was hoping to get this message up sooner, but was in operation on Thursday and am now recovering.   Perfect time for a blog post if I shall say so myself.  First things first, on Wednesday I went to the Assembly to watch them gerrymander the maps.  A few things […]

The Wrong Abortion Debate

The Wrong Abortion Debate

Abortion. It’s one of those wedge issues that causes some pretty heated debate. Few people have no opinion on this subject in fact. And it’s easy to understand why. We are talking about human life, the creation of human life, religious philosophies, religious dogma, complex moral considerations, social values and personal values.

Is The GOP Right on Household Economics?

Household Economics; right-winged candidates enjoy and often pledge to implement this economic ideology in the offices that they hold. The practice of tightening your belt when times are rough, and doing the opposite when money is in abundance; household economics sounds great to the right–winged base in this country.

Republicans And Religious Hypocrisy

In general, the Republican party at large has an astounding level of hypocrisy when it comes to their faith. They make a good show of having ‘Christian values’ and such, but that’s just what it is. A show. A staged, fake pretense. Let’s take a look at some of these hypocrisies.

Using ‘Corporate Personhood’ To Bring Down News Corporation

By definition, corporate personhood practically grants corporations the same rights that human beings enjoy. So that should also mean that corporations should face the exact same consequences when a crime is committed. And I’m not just talking about a person within the corporation. I’m talking about the entire corporation.

We Are Not Pawns in the GOP’s Sick Game

We Are Not Pawns in the GOP’s Sick Game

Republicans across the country have tried to force their policies down Americans throats and they are using an age-old advertising trick of puffery. Puffery, for those who are not into marketing, is when you insert key words into the advertising of your product, service, or in this case, policy.

Why We Owe Thanks To Fox News For Our Republican Presidential Candidates

We really ought to thank Rupert Murdoch and Fox News for the crème de la crème collection of crazed crackpots entering the presidential race. None of these candidates would never have gained so much attention had it not been for Fox News’ drive to ‘entertain’ Americans with their ‘conservative’ version of news.

Obama Dismisses Progressives, Again

Obama ignores the ideas of some of his staunches allies during his 2008 election campaign at a time when progressive ideas could be his only path to a successful presidency.

Raise your hand if you want me to tell the GOP to go frack themselves!

Obama Must Resist GOP Economic Terrorism

The GOP is threatening to wreck the economy for political gain. Obama must hold firm or we’ll never climb out the hole they dug for us.

Rupert Murdoch’s Fall From Grace Is Good For America And The World.

Rupert Murdoch and his band of misguided cohorts and minions have done irreparable damage to the institute of Journalism. These unforgivable people have systematically stripped the Journalistic process to the core, to its bare bones. I do think this scandal being broken is a good thing. News Corp has used it’s power and influence to strangle smaller news media and other enterprises around the world to the point of no return, causing dozens of them to close down or be gobbled up by the giant itself. The world has suffered mightily at the hands of News Corp.

Trading Potential Peace For War And Abandoning Patriotism For Treason

How patriotic is it for Republicans to turn on an American President, and instead show their support for the leader of a foreign nation? That’s exactly what the Republicans have done, so how can they truly care about their country when their loyalty is to a foreign nation’s leader?

Republicans; You Lie! Tax Cuts For The Wealthy Do NOT Create Jobs!

Multiple analyses show that tax rates have no direct correlation to GDP or job growth, yet Republicans tell us over and over and over that they do. I’m tired of hearing this myth being peddled by the Republican Party and their wannabe-millionaire supporters.
