How Progressives Can Take Back America
The GOP has fallen victim to their own strategy. Having defined themselves in opposition to Bin Laden, the future of the GOP is in doubt. It was a Democratic regime that beat the GOP at their own game! The question now is will liberals and progressives seize the day?

Has the US Become a 'Failed State' ?
It is hard to remember a time when the US did not pull up the rear on the CIA's own list of 'net debtor nations'. The difference now is the exponential rate at which the national debt is increasing. Has the US crossed the event horizon into an economic black hole from which there is now no pulling back?

How the Right Wing has Helped the "Leftist" Cause
As Bill Clinton sought the White House, the right wing, the GOP specifically, embarked upon an un-holy crusade to obtain Hilary Clinton's legendary paper about 'leftist' Saul Alinsky. This is but one interesting part of their evil quest.

McCain Demogogues and Lies About Social Security
The GOP hates Social Security because 1) it is FDRs lasting legacy; 2) it works; 3) there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with Social Security but that a GOP administration will figure out a way to break it and subvert it!

When the Sea Walks Over the Land
History repeated in Galveston, TX recently when a Category 4 hurricane struck the island city, testing a famous seawall that was constructed in the wake of the catastrophic storm of 1900. Did the wall work? And why is the the shore between Galveston and New Orleans "Hurricane Alley"?

GOP Invents a New Junk Science: 'Galaxy Warming'!
Recently, the NIST came up with yet another theory to 'explain' the perfectly symetrical 'controlled demolition' collapse of WTC towers. Turn up your X-files music. NIST says the towers collapsed due to "unusual magnetic forces"! Occam has surely slit his throat with his own razor! The GOP, meanwhile, invents a new junk science: GALAXY WARMING!
How the GOP Turned the US Into a Hideous Police State
The GOP has helped Bush turn the US into a police state where the rule of law no longer applies. Encouraged by Bush's totalitarian policies, Police force throughout America indulge an epidemic of repression and police brutality.
The Enemy is Us!
Clearly --Bush is a traitor to the US Constitution, an enemy of the people and of Democracy. Even so, responsible citizens must ask to what extent was American complacency and arrogance responsible for Bush's rise to near absolute power and dictatorship.

E. L. Doctorow: "I fault this President for not knowing what death is"
The rise and imminent fall of the GOP has sparked interest in the study of 'evil' --an interest that might have been inspired by Dr. Gustav Gilbert's interviews of Nazi war criminals and Hanah Arendt's studies of Adolph Eichmann. Today --the object of such study is George W. Bush.
The Un-American Lies of Antonin Scalia
Justice Scalia spends more time giving TV interviews that considering the 'rule of law'. His decisions are dubious, transparently based upon prejudice --not law. His 'thinking' in Bush v Gore was fallacious and had nothing whatsoever to do with 'law'. Time for Scalia to be retired!
