Is Another Depression Possible?: A Comparison of ‘The Great Depression’ and ‘The Great Recession’

In 2007, the world became engulfed in the largest economic slump since the Great Depression. The crisis was so damaging it was coined ‘the Great Recession’ and there was much comparison of the recession to the Great Depression of the 1930s in the mainstream media. However, what many failed to do was an in-depth analysis of both the Great Depression and the Great Recession, to compare and contrast the two.

Pastor Orders His Flock to Beat Gay Couple Arriving At Church

No one would be surprised to learn that there are right-wing Christians in this country who disapprove of homosexuality. Neither would it come as a surprise that in rural parts of this country, Christianity and homosexuality when brought together, can create a highly combustible mix. But who could imagine the hate and rage that would motivate a Pastor to instruct deacons and members of his congregation, Grace Fellowship Church in Fruitland, TN. to physically attack a couple arriving in the church parking lot last Wednesday?

Joan Walsh Needs To Step Up To The Plate And Apologize

Anyone familiar with Joan Walsh will know that about five months ago, Joan found herself in a little kerfuffle with some African American tweeters on Twitter, who took exception to some of the things Joan had said regarding some points she raised in an article written for Salon around the time the President announced his intention to run for re-election, something that seemed, particularly, to irritate Walsh.

#OccupyDC Starts Off With Great Potential, And Why I Am Here

It started with the WI State Capitol, the first real sustained occupation in this decade. Hundreds of thousands of people came to the Capitol Square to show support for the working class of WI, unionized or not, who were so brutally attacked by the horrible legislation which was then known as Senate Bill 11.

The 44th President is Damned if He Does & Damned if He Doesn’t

What would you say to a school teacher who fails your child on every test, not because his/her answers were wrong, but because the teacher just doesn’t like him/her, and tells you so? What would you say about a boss who tells you that you are doing a good job, but he/she has to fire you because you have shifty eyes and he just doesn’t trust you?

Pat Buchanan: Sexist, Racist, Nazi Sympathizer, AND Msnbc Analyst

Pat Buchanan is a very controversial figure. He worked in the Nixon and Reagan administrations and has since been a very vocal pundit on behalf of the extreme right wing of the Republican Party. Throughout his long career, he has been a presidential candidate, advisor, political speaker, analyst, and an author. But throughout that career, he has also been a sexist, racist, and a Nazi sympathizer.

Can a Democratic Leopard Change Its Spots to Republican?

Arguably, the most striking aspect of Gov. Rick Perry is the vast amount of Texas, political machismo that oozes from his GOP/Tea Party pores. He soared into the race for GOP nominee and continued to soar as he perched himself at the top of the pile; doing it so effortlessly that he almost made it look automatic. But as we all know from our sorted, political history, the past has an uncanny, gravitational way of pulling things back down to earth.

Al-Qaeda to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: Shut Up, Fool!

Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, is so prone to spouting lies about people and history that few if any literate citizens of the world take what he has to say seriously any more. The only remaining question many of us have about President Loonie-Tunes: is he really that stupid as to believe the nonsense coming out of his mouth, or, is he just very lame at the propaganda shtick?

New York Times Blatantly Edits Article About Occupy Wall Street To Protect Police (IMAGE)

Today police in New York City allowed protesters from the Occupy Wall Street rallies to march onto the Brooklyn Bridge. Shortly after they arrested hundreds of protesters for blocking traffic on the bridge, even though they’d allowed them to enter it. The New York times published an article on their website, explaining the true nature of what had happened. 20 minutes later they had changed it, to make it seem like the police had no blame in this incident.

The Patriot Act in Effect

The Patriot Act in Effect

I am sorry but I believe that the drone attack on Al-Alwaki and Samir Khan was wrong. Both of these men were American citizens and should have been taken alive and given a fair trial. But of course this is the Patriot Act in effect which gives the president the right to declare any American citizen an enemy combatant.

Right before they stormed the bridge!
