Is it Time for a New Progressive Movement?

Is it Time for a New Progressive Movement?

Perhaps when we stop fighting each other based on silly and ill-defined ideological differences perpetuated and ingrained through the corporate-controlled media and unite on the many issues we have in common, we can establish a system that works for us and through us. Perhaps I am naive, but I still have faith that the people united can always stand up to tyranny -- in whatever form it manifests itself -- and take back our nation and determine a path of liberty and economic, human and environmental sustainability that ours and ours alone; not the corporations path. I shudder to think what the other options are. [Read the rest of this article...]

Cut Me A Break

Cut Me A Break

Many moons ago, Phil Donahue did an entire TV talk show episode on how women, white/black/all-of-the-above say yes when they mean no, say no when they mean yes, and that men are supposed to know the difference between the two. Well, he had the entire audience of women screaming and laughing, that yes; that's what they do and only they themselves know what they're doing. Good luck on the book.

Health Care Reform: A Refresher, Part One

Health Care Reform: A Refresher, Part One

If you want a laugh, ask the "pro-business" types who have spent a year or more talking about why health care reform is a bad deal, what happens when a cost center explodes like that in a given business. With all of the current nonsense about a "debt crisis" invading the media (and by extension, the public), I thought it was time to refocus on the real sources of economic doom and gloom in our democracy. Our nation fought a one year battle, culminating in the package of groundbreaking (if not incomplete) legislation remaking the medical marketplace. Now, as the federal government unveils the rules written in enforcement of that law, the nation needs to be reminded why the battle is fought, and what comes next. [Read the rest of this article...]

We Need More Kings

We Need More Kings

White pythons, lions and tigers, all waiting to serve with a photo op. Prior to dinner, Roger's wife was carried into the room Cleopatra-style by a legion of scantilly clad young bucks. Not to be out done, Roger entered riding an Elephant to cheers from the throngs who were drinking and eating on his nickle. Dinner came next with an all-female band that played through the multi-course feast. Which was a prelude to the main act... [Read the rest of this article...]

Where Will The Ax Fall The Hardest?

Where Will The Ax Fall The Hardest?

Balls finds it rather amusing that even the most hardcore tax-and-spend lunatics now recognize that we must finally come to our fiscal senses! Even their socialist heros in Europe are taking the ax to spending in the interest of self-preservation. However, the lackeys in Congress also understand all too well that cutting spending will inevitably alienate some group of their constituents. Which groups of constituents are most likely to experience the sharp edge of the ax? [Read the rest of this article...]

Burger Diplopmacy

Burger Diplopmacy

Can you imagine if all conflicts could be negotiated over burgers and fries? North Korea. Somalia. Iran. Iraq. Afghanistan. Pick one. We, as Americans, appear to be hell bent on enforcing our culture and values (values?) on the rest out the world. Let it be burgers. Rice schmice. Taco schmacko. Get that foreign (PC: International) leader to travel to Arlington, VA. for burgers and fries (and a Coke) and now we are talkin' turkey. A great many world leaders sent their kids to America for an education anyway, so by way of osmosis, they know the inherent value of ground beef with stuff on top. The dream of every beauty queen and Sandra Bullock, World Peace. [Read the rest of this article...]

Lowest Common Denominator Politics: McChrystal Out

Lowest Common Denominator Politics: McChrystal Out

So now McChrystal gets the axe and Obama puts Petraeus in charge of Afghanistan. It's not so much the fact that McChrystal was doing a great job in taking back control of Afghanistan, for he was on a path with no victory and no end. It is the fact that President Obama is so quick to oust anyone who has the audacity to speak ill of his War Mongering in Afghanistan -- quite similar if not fully identical to the W. Administration.

Republican Masochism

Republican Masochism

The modern Republican Party has become a model of self-contradiction. A party loaded to the rafters with self-proclaimed freedom-lovers was forced to justify a systematic destruction of civil liberties; acts perpetrated by a Republican President and Republican Congress under the auspices of the Patriot Act and the Military Commissions Act. Conservatives had to find methods for dealing with the same Republican power structure as it violated the tenants of fiscal conservatism by doubling the national debt; debt that had been reduced by the fiscal policies of the previous Democratic administration. Finally, Republican stalwarts heard Mr. Bush repeatedly claim to listen to the generals, then watched as he fired one soldier after another who [Read the rest of this article...]

The Pope Smokes Dope

The Pope Smokes Dope

Of course, this Vatican endorsement might have been an end-around-reverse trick play to continue to divert attention away from their own global catastrophe - priests abusing little boys. Although the sexual abuse disaster hit the legal system in 2001, it hasd been going on for at least 50 years. [Read the rest of this article...]
