Are We Winning The Real War On Terror?

Are We Winning The Real War On Terror?

This is our betrayal, if the citizens of the United States would only stand in defense of the rights of the many, those few in Manhattan whose rights stand threatened would certainly prevail. In the case of the so-called ground zero mosque, the fears and prejudices of 9/11 have been revisited against our nation, by our nation. This is the ultimate self-inflicted wound, and it is far from the first instance of such a wound in the 9 years since the attack. The physical facts of this case are issues beyond the point. It matters not that this proposed facility lies blocks from the site of ground zero. It matters not that the site will be obscured from all but the highest floors of the buildings that will take the place of the World Trade [Read the rest of this article...]

The GOP’s Callous Cowardice

The GOP’s Callous Cowardice

By now most of the politically-inclined citizens of our nation with internet access have seen Rep. Anthony Weiner's tirade on the floor of the House last week. It was an impress display of apoplectic anger and represents the most honest assessment of the House Republican caucus that anyone has given in years. In short, the gentleman from New York's 9th district called House Republicans 'cowards who refuse to vote their conscience.' Anthony Weiner is absolutely correct. [Read the rest of this article...]

Demanding The Terms Of Defeat

Demanding The Terms Of Defeat

Progressives are making a career out of making politics difficult. To be sure, governing in the presence of the Republicans is quite a chore. The GOP's idea of bipartisanship is clear; do it our way or we will gum up the works, hold our breath, and call you names. But liberals and democrats aren't making it easy on themselves. The Democratic Party and the liberal blogosphere has taken to the same strategies with regards to "new stuff' as the ten year-olds of the world; "I absolutely have to have this new great toy or I will just die!"

Elections America-Style: Show Me The Money!

Elections America-Style: Show Me The Money!

This is the definition of two things; the lengths to which Republicans will go to defeat anything proposed by Democrats and/or the President, and the lengths to which Republicans will go to ensure that corporate money is available to them without public disclosure. The GOP knows that if the public finds out; that they are denying climate change because oil and coal interests are paying them to do so; that they fought against health insurance and pharmaceutical reform because those industries were paying them to do so; that they challenged banking and Wall Street regulation because the money men told them to do so; if these things come to light, the GOP is finished.

Energizing Facts

Energizing Facts

Republicans are telling the truth on cap and trade because they know we Americans have become terrified of T-A-X. They spend their time screaming about "our grandchildren" because they know that we, as a society, are focused more on the paperwork we leave our children, and less on the legacy we leave our children.

The Everest Of Stupidity

The Everest Of Stupidity

Refusing to reveal your agenda is Un-American. Refusing to reveal your agenda is cowardice...pure, unadulterated, yellow-bellied, cowardice. Offering the aside that you won't reveal your agenda because the mainstream media will try to make campaign points out of every issue, only serves to turn the maker of the remarks from a coward into a coward with a lame excuse. All media are supposed to make campaign issues out of every candidate's platform. That is called political reporting, and it is the cornerstone of an informed democracy.

Blame Obama

Blame Obama

The American Tea Party is mad as hell, and they aren't going to take it anymore! I get that; rage I understand. What I am left to figure out is what in the hell they are mad about? Were these folks angry in 2005, 2006, 2007, or 2008? Have they just reached their boiling points now? Or is the President doing something to our nation that forms a legitimate gripe? The secret to the answer to that question, in my humble opinion, lies in the timing of the Tea Party outrage. [Read the rest of this article...]

American Guns

American Guns

At this time of historic freedom to keep and bear arms, the rights secured and protected are not, apparently, good enough. Armed marches have become, almost, a political fad. If you live in Louisiana, you can thank God, literally, for the right to carry firearms in Church. The aim here is very clear. The gun lobby wants the 2nd Amendment to define the only American right not subject to modification. They have even objected to banning firearms sales to individuals that America's anti-terrorism folks consider a danger to our nation. Over a six year period, 91% of individuals on the terrorist watch list who applied for permits to buy guns were approved. Why not, I guess; guns don't kill people, airplanes flown into buildings kill people. What [Read the rest of this article...]

‘What’s His Plan Son’

‘What’s His Plan Son’

It was one of those classic lines in cinema; Fred Thompson's kindly but gruff rebuke of Alec Baldwin's Jack Ryan. "What's his plan son? Ruskies don't take a dump without a plan, and senior commanders don't start something this risky without having thought the matter out." Of course, since Fred left acting to return to politics, the notion of "thinking the matter through" seems to have left the Party that he loves. What a shame. [Read the rest of this article...]
