A Tale of Two Women and The One Man Who Failed

It seems to me that HuffPo seems to grow like the weed it is and spread like a cancer through the media world, and at the most opportune times. The week that Rupert Murdoch was testifying in Parliament and getting slammed in the smacker with a shaving foam pie, Arianna turned up in London to launch – you guessed it – HuffPost UK Edition.

By The People, For The People?

A simple statement can have more meaning behind it than even the longest of novels. By the people, for the people. When did our perspective shift away from that? We are no longer a nation that believes in this statement; at least by the way the federal government is acting.

Unions BOOST Economy In Germany

Unions BOOST Economy In Germany

As the Republican war on unions continues unabated, we should expect to see more jobs go overseas, and an increase in unemployment. At 9.1%, with perhaps a real unemployment rate of close to 20%, it’s probably time to start joining unions by the millions. Why you ask? Well, in Germany, unions are on the rise and the economy is soaring there, despite economic downturn in Europe and the United States.

Are Republicans Guilty Of Treason?

Are Republicans Guilty Of Treason?

The dictionary defines treason as, ‘disloyalty or treachery to one’s country or its government.’ And so with that in mind one has to ask, are the Republicans guilty of treason?

I’d Rather Be At A ‘Hip-Hop BBQ’ Than A Klansmen Tea Party

Has anyone else noticed that Fox News doesn’t even try to hide their blatant racism anymore? In fact, it’s becoming more of the norm amongst some conservatives. When they say a racist remark, instead of retracting it or apologizing for it, they defend it (‘it’s not really what I meant’). That is utter malarkey.
