The Government Needs A Steve Jobs To Help Create Real Jobs

The Government Needs A Steve Jobs To Help Create Real Jobs

Looking at the political landscape these days is like looking at an iceberg adrift on the ocean. You know it will eventually wind up in warmer climate where it will melt, but at the moment all you can focus on is its immense proportions, its icy and formidable composition and the hazard it poses to navigation.

Herman Cain Wants You To Pay More For Your Groceries

Herman Cain’s now infamous ‘9-9-9’ plan may be the most regressive tax offered by anyone at anytime.

Should Elite Christianity Be The Only Prerequisite For The Presidency?

Between the Westboro Baptist Church, Dr. Robert Jeffress, and the entire Christian right ideology, it has become increasingly more difficult to decipher just who has been the ideological fungus that grows on the wall of common sense and integrity; making it unclear as to whether it is Christianity that has given a bad name to the conservative platforms of the Republican Party and the Tea Party, or whether it is the conservative lust for political domination under the soulless shroud of a religious misusage that has given Christianity a bad name.

The Ground Zero Mosque Opens to Zero Interest

The Ground Zero Mosque Opens to Zero Interest

As the so-called ‘Ground Zero mosque,’ which is actually an Islamic cultural center, recently held its first activities on September 21st of 2011, it symbolizes everything that is right about America and everything that is wrong within America. Speaking as an American citizen, it is very satisfying to witness the wheels of American justice begrudgingly being forced to grind in the direction of the same equality that so many of us love to stand up for, place our right hands over our hearts for, sing along to, and make into our representation of freedom, courage and justice for all.

Occupy Wall Street Could Be A Seminal Moment…Or Not

The spontaneity of OWS interested me. Spontaneity can be good, sometimes, but I wanted these people protesting to have a goal or a concrete aim or at least a leader who could articulate one and the same – otherwise, they risked getting taken advantage of by people who had their own spurious agenda to promote.
