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...]

Financial Reform: Wall Street Wins Again

Financial Reform: Wall Street Wins Again

It is expected that President Obama will sign into law the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act this week. In what his administration will surely proclaim as a victory for Main Street, and the right-wing pundits and media will construe as an affront to capitalism in the omnipresent game of disinformation and propaganda; the only victor will be the Corporate system that dictates our Democracy and wreaks havoc on Global Markets for the sake of more and more profit to the detriment of the earth's inhabitants.

‘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...]

Dynamics of Divisiveness: Re-Defining Our Shift to the Right

Dynamics of Divisiveness: Re-Defining Our Shift to the Right

Engaging in baby talk with one another, and ignoring historical realities will not save us from what will be a continued degradation of our security, prosperity, humanity and dignity, promoting catastrophic damage to the earth and its inhabitants all in the name of Corporatism. We are all benign to the fact that our political system has drifted far to what was once considered the right. There is no more left in the traditional sense. There is no more right as we define it. There is a one party system that is gaining more and more control as we continue to divide ourselves. The creatures that inhabit our political system -- the politicians -- are just as blind as the rest of us as they allow themselves to do the bidding of the [Read the rest of this article...]

Consume. That’s What Good Americans Do.

Consume. That’s What Good Americans Do.

If your Ford F-150 has a little mud on the tires, hell, trade up for a new one just like Tobey Kieth says -- or does he whore for Chevy? It doesn't really matter what you buy, how you buy or where you buy as long as you jumpstart the economy by putting more useless shit into your home or your stomach or your saggy tits. Come on, who doesn't need a breast implant? Jesus loves big knockers; and so does Uncle Sam. So go forth and consume!! [Read the rest of this article...]

Health Care Reform: A Refresher, Part Three

Health Care Reform: A Refresher, Part Three

The Public Option was the biggest story nobody understood in 2009. When we last checked in on the debate in late October, the scaled back government alternative to private insurance, a tiny initiative that would only have covered 4% of the population, was the central piece in the health care fight. The Public Option was the one factual item in the GOP campaign to derail meaningful health care reform, and it was the political football Harry Reid was left to carry over the goal-line before Christmas.

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...]

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.
