Share

Four candidates are left in the presidential race and all four have serious judgement issues that renders them ill-equipped to lead the most powerful nation on Earth.

How Does One Support Hillary without rewarding DNC misbehavior?

Share

The Democratic Party took sides in the race from Day One and actively harmed the Sanders campaign. Now they want Sanders’ endorsement and the votes of his supporters offering NOTHING in return but threats & ridicule.

Why a Sanders Victory is More Likely than Hillary

Share

All explanations for an inevitable Clinton victory in November hinge on how BAD Donald Trump will do, NOT how much better of a candidate she is.

Boehner Ousted by the Tea Party He Helped Create. Lesson Learned? Doubtful.

Share

In 2010 during the first mid-term election of Obama’s presidency, House Minority Leader John Boehner knew that in order for the GOP to retake the majority (and make him the Speaker), he would have to court the Tea Party crazies that were seizing control of the GOP, adopting their insane ramblings like “BenghaziTM“, threatening to sue […]

Two more cold blooded gun murders, one on live TV, and nothing will change (once again.)

Share

“Any chance of sane gun-control legislation in this country disappeared the moment we decided the brutal mass murder of 20 innocent school children was acceptable.” An acceptable price to pay to protect the availability of guns. We did that. I wish I could take credit for this quote, but I read it and can’t remember where. It’s not exact […]

Let’s Face Facts: Spike in violence against Blacks tied to Right Wing hostility toward Obama

Share

After news broke of the mass murder of nine African-American members of the AME Church of Charleston, SC last Thursday, the “discovery” that the shooter was a Confederate Flag waving racist gun nut, surprised no one. What WAS surprising was the lengths to which Fox “news” went to to suggest that this might have been an attack on […]

If Hillary is nominee in 2016, she has my vote. Here is how to win my SUPPORT.

Share

At the start of the 2008 presidential race, I was a Hillary Clinton supporter. I was a “Health care Reform” voter and she had made reform a key plank in her campaign. But as the race dragged on (with the help of Republican’s engaging in what Rush Limbaugh coined “Operation Chaos”), the debate turned nasty between her and […]

Electorate Votes Big for Progressive Policies (and the people least likely to implement them)

Share

What conclusions can be drawn from an electorate that voted overwhelmingly for Progressive policies in last Tuesday’s election only to also vote for the people LEAST likely to implement them? In EVERY state where raising the Minimum Wage was on the ballot, all Deep-RED states, it won. In EVERY state where marijuana legalization was on the […]

Will Voters Overlook Shutdown, Sequester, Impeachment and Economic Chaos over ISIS & Ebola fears?

Share

In mid-2004, the BBC ran a three-part miniseries entitled “The Power of Nightmares”. The subject of the documentary was the idea that where we once elected people with the brightest vision of our future (the “sunny optimist”), today we elect the people with the biggest fears, ridiculing their critics as “naive” and “inadequately concerned” of whatever […]

Dems, If You Want To Win the Senate, stop accepting GOP line that Obama is a failure.

Share

I don’t know what angers me more: Hearing every pundit on TV talk about how “unpopular” President Obama is citing questionable polling numbers as the basis for their opinion, or Democratic candidates who believe it and then run in fear of being associated with him (again, I’m looking at YOU Alison Lundergan-Grimes. You are about […]
