A Perspective - What is "Democratic Socialism"? For as long as I can remember the term "Socialism" has been demonized as something very, very bad. And even if Socialism WAS a bad thing, that's NOT what Bernie Sanders has characterized himself as. He has always characterized himself as a "DEMOCRATIC Socialist", and there's a "Yuuuuge" difference. So let's examine this...

A New Level Of Obstruction, And A New Level Of Embarrassment If you're a Republican, you must be feeling quite embarrassed right now from all sh*t going on in your party. Not only did the Republican leadership come out immediately after the passing of Justice Scalia with the position that they wouldn't allow President Obama to replace him, but then the Republican presidential contenders had a knock-down, drag-out, schoolyard brawl, which was nothing short of laughable.

Who REALLY supports our troops? There's a big difference between Republicans and Democrats, particularly on who and how they support the ones who risked their lives for our country.

Food For Thought: What If Gore Had Won Here's an article I originally published in May of 2005, speculating what would've happened if Gore had not had the presidency stolen from him in 2000. How would our country and our world be different now? Ohhhh.. in sooo many ways... in soooo many ways.

Stuck Between Iraq and a Hard Place It must be very difficult to be a Republican presidential candidate right now. You have to tow the party line to get the nomination, even though that 'party line' is so far out of the mainstream.

Be Strong, Congress - Tell Bush To "Take It Or Leave It!" Our government is heading for a showdown with the supplimental war appropriations bill. Bush certainly doesn't deserve this money to continue funding his war, but the Dems are willing to give it to him as long as there's some semblence of an exit strategy. Here's my message to the Dems - don't back down!

John McCain Just Doesn't Get It - II The massacre of Virginia Tech SHOULD have reinforced the common-sense need for gun control. Instead, John McCain went in exactly the opposite direction.

Don't Let The Neo-cons Frame "The Message" The Democrats need to get control of 'the message'. Instead of "winning the war" we need to frame the message as "ending the occupation".

Under Oath, On The Record, & In Public There's only one possible reason the Bush Administration is resisting having their senior officials testify under oath, on the record, and in public. It's an admission of guilt.

Scooter & Gonzo - Fall Guys For A Corrupt Presidency The rot in the Bush Administration goes to the very top. But somehow they've conveniently arranged for others to take the fall for their corruption and scandals.

An Open Letter To Our Troops A short message to our men & women serving in the military. We support you, appreciate you, and have the utmost gratitude for your efforts. Please don't take our anti-war messages as a knock against you. Our message is against the President and his greedy neo-con mission; not against the brave troops who have carried out their orders as commanded.

Some Tough-Talking Republicans The Republican talking points are getting so predictable and monotonous. When you talk about people not having original ideas, point to the right, not the left.

2009 Can't Come Soon Enough The next two years under the Bush Administration will be a long dark cloud, just like the last 6 years. If this world is still around in 2009, there's reason for optimism. Here're my predictions for the balance of the Bush presidency.

Dick Cheney: The Pure Evil Behind The President The biggest evil in the White House is not the President. It's the Vice President. Dick Cheney is motivated by greed, power, profit, and conquest. From his non-stop lies he's lost ALL credibility. So, why is the media still listening to him?

Underneath The "Surge" Strategy Bush and company intend to proceed with the escalation of the Iraq conflict despite all advice & evidence against it. Those of us paying attention know that this "surge" is all about Iran & Syria. Iraq is just the conduit for the neo-con's next conquest.

Mr. Bush, Put Your Presidency Where Your Mouth Is This is my message to President Bush. Escalation of this conflict is so far out of the mainstream opinion, are you willing to risk your presidency on it?

Once Again Bush Gets It Wrong. Who'd O' Thunk? After 3 1/2 years of this foreign policy debacle, after the 2006 mid-term elections, and after so many credible sources saying we need to be extricating ourselves from Iraq, George W. Bush is actually thinking about sending in MORE troops. What an idiot!
