(3 comments) SHARE Friday, February 26, 2016 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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

The massacre of Virginia Tech SHOULD have reinforced the common-sense need for gun control. Instead, John McCain went in exactly the opposite direction.
SHARE Friday, March 23, 2007 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.

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.
SHARE Friday, February 16, 2007 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.

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.

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?
SHARE Tuesday, January 23, 2007 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.

If you're a progressive living in the Boston area, you were side-swiped by the loss of our only progressive talk radio station. Here's an idea that's worth looking into.

Yes, it's that time of year. Not Christmas, not Chanukah, not Kwanza, not New Year's.... It's my birthday, and time for my birthday wish list.

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!
