Claims Hillary Has Better Chance of Winning Not Only False, but now moot amid GOP chaos

Share

For months now, many Clinton supporters have been citing Hillary’s chances of defeating Trump in the General election in November as their reason for voting for her. They just don’t believe that an admitted “Democratic Socialist” can win the election. As far as I’m aware, there has never been an official poll taken of Clinton supporters […]

Republicans Are Right. Delay nomination of Scalia’s successor

Share

I can’t remember the last time I said this and may never say it again, so listen up: REPUBLICANS ARE RIGHT. We should delay replacing Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia until after the election. I know how heretical that may sound, but bear with me for a moment while I explain and you may even agree. The magnitude […]

Win or Lose, Trump is Now the Face of GOP

Share

They can deny it all they want, but even if Trump loses the GOP nomination, he and his offensive, questionable & even delusional world view now represents the modern Republican Party.

GOP’s Slide Toward Fascism Has Become Impossible To Ignore

Share

When Donald Trump’s call to bar Muslim’s entry into the U.S. received widespread condemnation, his GOP competitors whom have failed to gain any traction against him jumped on the Condemnation Bandwagon. But everyone seems to forget what spurred Trump’s first foray into politics: questioning the birthplace of the nation’s first African American president and suggesting he was a “secret Muslim”.

When Do We Stop Listening to Conservatives on How to Fight Terrorism?

Share

We’ve been following the same policies of the same people who created this mess for 14 years and it’s not getting better. When do we finally say “enough is enough” and start thinking outside-the-box on ways to bring this war to an end?

Thanksgiving With My Conservative Family Explains A Lot

Share

When you’re the only Liberal in a family of Conservatives living in the South, getting together for the holidays can be a tricky thing. But mostly, it has taught me a lot about the Conservative Mind and particularly why they believe what they believe. First, you start with a foundation of bigotry. It may not be very deep, but […]

Why we NEED the Syrian Refugees (SPECIAL EDITION)

Share

My letter to President Obama: Dear Mr. President, Tx Sen. Ted Cruz said we would be “crazy” to allow in the Syrian Refugees right now. I say we would be “crazy” NOT TO! Refugees are like an INOCULATION against domestic terrorism. They have seen the horrors of ISIS first hand, then integrate into their communities […]

Paris, Freedom Fries and The Problem of Jihadi Recruitment.

Share

The terrorist attacks in Paris last Friday brought back memories of 9/11 for a lot of people. But for me, I was more reminded of how all this leads back to George Bush’s disastrous decision to invade Iraq in the first place… and the fact France warned us not to do it, calling military intervention in Iraq: “the […]

Obama Extends The Longest War in U.S. History. Here’s How to End It

Share

Last week, President Obama was forced to reluctantly concede that the War in Afghanistan was not going to end on his watch as hoped. One of his first acts upon entering office in 2009 was to send an additional 30,000 troops into Afghanistan (Side note: Republicans blame the continued fighting in Iraq on President Obama withdrawing our […]
