What we have to fear isn't just fear This friend of a friend of a friend is not a "bad" man. And that is the problem today, the one we need to be terrified of. It's not badness, necessarily. It's much more serious: it's profoundly stupid ignorance.

Our first responsibility is to accept it That ringing in our ears isn't tinnitus; it's our consciences reminding us of a moral fact: Even if the matter of culpability has been diluted by millions of others who also cast the ballots, we must share the blame, when there's blame that ought to be borne.

Paul Newman explains the Republican Party. "What we've got hee-ah is "fail-yah to com-municate.'" That infamous line from Paul Newman's 1967 movie, Cool Hand Luke, has so many applications, especially when the follow-up line is "Some men you just can't reach."

What sort of relationship are you looking for? When it comes to those we hire with our votes, we shouldn't be pondering whether he or she would make a wonderful neighbor, perhaps someone we'd like to socialize with, become fast buddies with. Can that person do the "job," will he or she represent our best interests?

Have you ever had a bronchial infection? Have you ever had a bronchial infection? A severe recession can be like that: requiring a heavy dose of government intervention. The "Great Recession" we experienced in the last years of the Bush administration required, but did not get from either the Bush or the Obama administrations, an adequately heavy dose of government intervention in the form of federal economic stimulus. What we got was too weak and too brief.

The question is: Are you completely nuts? Are we? Here's a rude fact of life that's sure to upset: Not all opinions are equal. It's why we consult those members of our society who have demonstrated and met certain standards of proficiency in the given subject matter. Or . . . at least why we should consult those members of our society who have demonstrated and met certain standards of proficiency in the given subject matter.

In Memoriam to Memorial Day I no longer stand when the National Anthem is played. It is an abject lie. We are not the "home of the brave." Fewer than three percent of Americans bear the burden of defending on the ground any part of the ground we walk upon. And virtually none care to draw a cent from their personal accounts to help pay the tab.

On choosing friends, lovers and associates How else can it be read than that those voting GOP in 2002, 2004, 2006, and 2008 supported those heinous, absolutely shameful policies? How else can it be read than that those so voting in those elections felt: "Screw the uniformed fools who stepped forward to serve the country"? And how else can it be read than that those who retained friendships with those who so voted did not also agree with those sentiments?

What a foul stew we're concocting "It's hard to overstate how destructive the economic ideas offered earlier this week by John Boehner. He proposes two things: large tax cuts for the wealthy that would increase the budget deficit while doing little to support the economy, and sharp spending cuts that would depress the economy while doing little to improve budget prospects. Fewer jobs and bigger deficits -- the perfect combination.

Don't let Republican games turn into Republican gains! How do Republicans propose setting the fiscal house more to order? By gutting Social Security, Medicare, and by adding a 2 percent sales tax that the least among us pay on food, not by closing a single loop hole the wealthy and the corporations enjoy.

Telling the facts isn't always the same as telling the truth. However this may seem as though it's about Shirley Sherrod, until a few days ago, the National Director for Rural Development at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and how she happened to be fired from that post, this is actually about us, and the way we use facts and how we respond to stories that include them.

An important speech by Sen Franken to Constitutionalist Soc, PLEASE listen In his Al Franken manner, tersely outlines what has gone wrong, how justice is being -- as it has been -- hijacked by conservatives to serve ill ends.

Largemouth bass have swallowed the bait, hook, line, sinker, & boat. One of their characteristics is a mean disposition, among other fish they're not the dumbest. But they're still just plain, tiny-brained, stupid fish, and like Republican voters, conservatives (no discernable difference, any longer), and the tea baggers, they're known to swallow just about anything. They prey on anything that's smaller and dumber than they are, including plastic worms.
