Why I’m not pledging to my local NPR station.

Why I’m not pledging to my local NPR station.

NPR. Truly fair and balanced news coverage. A pillar of many a community for decades, it has grown so well on the support of members like you and I. This year, however, may well mark the last time I make a pledge to WAMU, my local station of choice. Not […]

Illegal immigration NEEDS to end, but not the way you think.

In this era of shrinking differences, of international alliance and peace, it is appalling that we, the wealthiest, most powerful nation in the world should even think to question whether to welcome any person who wants nothing more than to provide for their family, to make something of themselves, or to have a decent life

Information Wars

Information Wars

There are few things that I hate with more of a passion than Sarah Palin and the Tea Party, but information black outs is one of them.  Withholding important information from the population at large is the most vile thing that a person with power can do.  People have been […]

I TOLD Y’ALL about Arianna Huffington! Now How’s That Scumbaggy Thingy Goin’ Fer Ya?

Something Old, Something Renewed

Something Old, Something Renewed

If we got in our “way back” machine and visited Henry Ford, we’d find out some pretty remarkable things. The material and fuel he wanted his cars to run on. It wasn’t any of DuPont’s new fangled plastics derived from petroleum or oil based gasoline. He preferred Hemp.

The Sheen Smokescreen

The Sheen Smokescreen

Sometimes, living abroad has its advantages, even in the age of the Internet. For example, I’m probably the only American in the world who doesn’t know exactly what’s been happening with Charlie Sheen. I haven’t a clue, and I suppose he doesn’t either; but whilst I caught rumblings in the […]

Wisconsin and Learning from Our Mistakes

Wisconsin and Learning from Our Mistakes

This was never about fiscal responsibility. It was never about balancing a budget and job creation, two of the major subjects the Republican party whined and groaned about throughout 2010. It was all about busting union power, bringing those organisations formed by working people to their proverbial knees. It was about quashing the little man. It was about keeping the peasants in their place.

Don’t Hate Me Because I Care About Others

Don’t Hate Me Because I Care About Others

Why am I demonized for wanting a healthy and successful America? Why am I demonized for wanting equality for LGBT individuals and every minority group? Why am I demonized for caring about the education of the children in America? Why am I demonized for wanting others to respect those who […]

The Conservative revolution will NOT be televised in Canada Or “Awwwww…too bad, so sad, you lie.”

The Conservative revolution will NOT be televised in Canada Or “Awwwww…too bad, so sad, you lie.”

Once more Canada has demonstrated that being a successful democracy doesn’t require one to be a loud mouthed, ill-mannered war monger incapable of telling the truth if your life depended on it. In other words, democracy works just fine without Fox

Being Liberal is NOT a Bad Thing

Being Liberal is NOT a Bad Thing

I’m tired of the Republicans and the right-wing using the word ‘Liberal’ like it’s a bad thing.

Republicans Don’t Care About the Constitution

Republicans Don’t Care About the Constitution

Republicans claim to be stalwarts of defending the Constitution. On a regular basis they accuse the Democrats of trying to subvert the Constitution. Recently though the Republicans have been saying that we need to repeal the 14th Amendment.

A Silver Lining In November 2nd’s Election Results…

By srv1499 I’ll touch on November 2nd’s election results and events and get far more in depth later in this editorial. The biggest news of the night was the near total rejection of the Tea Party. Even the party which they run under said no to them as witnessed in the […]
