Colby, America's oldest Liberal Arts College, honors Tony Blair as Commencement Speaker What can a morally bereft war criminal possibly have to say to young people going out into the world? How to "Sex-Up" information to suit your self-serving aims? How to pander to Fascists? How to start a war? Hopefully Colby will re-consider this very poorly thought-out choice for a commencement speaker that can only tarnish its good name!

The KKK Comes to Town. My friend from Georgia will have police-escorted KKK march past her house today. (We convinced her not to try to tangle with them; they are NOT worth the risk!) I wanted to share her feelings about their impact on her community.

How much will YOUR State send to Israel in the next 8 years? An interactive map of what your state will spend on Israel's military might between 2009 and 2018. Think about this next time you're told that Healthcare Reform (Single-Payer) will "Cost too much".

That Dog Don't Hunt! What is it with these whining curs, the "Blue Dog" Democrats? Their idea of Healthcare Reform seems to be NO REFORM at all!

The Republicans' Boehnheaded Budget "Alternative" The Republicans have presented the same Boehn-headed Reagonomics/Bushite nonsense that has gotten us in this mess...but though some Americans are just beginning to figure out who stole us blind, many of us now know exactly whodunnit and what didn't work!
