Those chest-beating low-brow far Right gun nuts telling us how if THEY had been there with THEIR pistol/Glock/etc when all those people were being shot, THEY could have taken out the mass shooter […]

Republicans Bemoan Obama’s Iran Hostage Deal. But Republican presidents fared FAR worse

Share

Following last weeks release of 10 servicemen and 5 civilians from Iranian custody in only a matter of hours, Republicans were quick to condemn Obama for showing weakness. But Reagan & both Bushes did the same with worse results.

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?

Home of the Brave? Govs & Congress Terrified of Refugees. GOP Front-runners Channel… you know who.

Share

Following the Paris attacks, if anyone had just cause to fear strangers from a war zone entering their country, it was the French. Instead, they said to the world, “We will not be intimidated!” and recommitted themselves to accepting 30 Thousand additional Syrian Refugees (which, as I pointed out last week, is a very smart move.)

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 […]

Same People Telling Us More Guns Is Solution to Gun Violence Have Given Us 15 years of War in Mid East

American Parsimony Toward Syrian Refugees is a Disgrace. Let them in.

Share

Just over four Million Syrian refugees have fled their homeland looking to escape the ravages of a war that WE are largely to blame for yet accept almost no responsibility for. President Obama has announced that the United States will allow in a paltry 10,000 Syrian refugees into the U.S…. NEXT YEAR… or ONE QUARTER OF ONE PERCENT. Meanwhile, Germany, […]
