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.

It Must Be Okay When You Are Republican

130 Republicans who are in congress today voted to hike the debt ceiling under Bush, without hostage threats.

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.

Of Cabbages and Kings: It’s Not That Obama’s Naive; It’s Just That the President’s Not White

To say that race matters, regarding matters to the Right of the political spectrum, is an understatement. Who doesn’t remember many of the people showing up for Sarah Palin’s campaign rallies in 2008, with their stuffed monkeys called ‘Little Hussein,’ the elderly woman challenging McCain with her misguided fact that Candidate Obama was an Arab, the shouts and jeers, even to one man shrieking out that Obama must be killed during a Palin pow-wow.

Republican Politicians Hate America

Republican Politicians Hate America

Given the enormity of Republican patriotism, it is interesting that they are so hell-bent on winning the 2012 election, they will do anything it takes to bring this country to its knees in the hope that Americans will be too stupid and/or too ignorant, to understand who drove the economy off a cliff in the first place, and who is currently standing at the top of the cliff making sure we stay down.

The Language of Shared Sacrifice

President Obama uses the term ‘shared sacrifice’ and falls into a Republican trap. It’s time to share the costs of the recovery with everyone, including the Republican’s billionaire patrons.

How We Got To The Debt Ceiling

How We Got To The Debt Ceiling

Republicans try to blame Obama for increasing the National Debt, even though it’s only gone up 25% since he was in office, and it went up 75% under Bush, with Republican support. They also fail to mention that 95% of Obama’s budget deficit is carryover spending from the Bush Administration’s policies.

Excommunication By State

Excommunication By State

I am a proud Virginian and proud of the people who made the Commonwealth great. Because of Virginians, we have a Constitution (James Madison), a Declaration of Independence (Thomas Jefferson) and a Bill of Rights (George Mason). We can claim the first President and the first woman to be elected to the British Parliament. We might have been stupid enough to house the capital of the Confederacy, but in 1989, we elected the first African American governor to preside over that old capital, and that’s when Derval Patrick was still in short trousers.
