You'll get emails whenever I post articles on OpEdNews

Having retired from 30 years as high school and then college director, I spend most of my time writing (for children, a newspaper website, emails to friends around the world, grouchy comments on progressive blogs). I'm still the radical my father awakened during the Spanish Civil War, way to the left of most of my students in fact. What angers and frustrates me are the rantings of mendacious Republicans about Islam, terrorism, Democrats, progressives, liberals, Europeans, etc etc, and the pussyfooting, please don't rock my boat, of Democrats. I have no faith in the power or willingness of the human race to save itself from extinction in the next 50-100 years. I wish I could carpe diem until then but it's too painful to just watch what's happening to democracy in the western world. Well, I'll be gone before it happens anyway.

The President of Holland The Dutch might understand Barack Obama better if they placed him somewhere in the Dutch political system. We might be able to place him if we imagine him at work. Is there anything about Holland he'd want to change? Absolutely! This is one of those European countries so derisively labeled as 'socialist.' There's no doubt that Obama supports what an overwhelming majority of Dutch people would label a far right agenda.
