LOL, I can already hear the cavalcade of indignation!  “What do you mean”? “How can you say that”?  “Communist”! Stop it, you are tearing me up in laughter! This seemingly audacious claim is not the equal and opposite reaction to four years of hypocritical tea baggery nor a reply to Senator Mitch McConnell’s proclamation to help... Read more »

Romney Disses Troops: essentially says talk of soldiers is "unimportant"?

While trying to spin his way out of his major convention omission (his failure to mention either war of recent vintage and the troops that have fought those wars, yet another Romney gaffe), Romney doubles down on his bravado about his proposal to spend over and above what the Pentagon has projected its needs will be.

Democratic Senators May Be Called Upon to Preserve America's Future

John Boehner, the Democratic Party will need to clearly define themselves for the 21st Century — especially to the under-50, ethnically changing electorate.  Needing to go well beyond the polished speeches of their convention they should trumpet: who they are and what they are going to fight...

Trump Equates Tax-School Records: how about draft dodging records?

See “Donald,” we too can dosey doe into the absurd. When you “advise” Willard “Mitt” Romney to break with precedent and conditionally release his tax returns in exchange of Obama “releasing” his college transcripts in an unprecedented and suspiciously racist request (to insinuate what?

Ole Vladmir must be praying and licking his chops at the prospect of a Willard “Mitt” Romney presidency.  The same crystal ball and beads must be working overtime in Beijing and other capitals around the world as the weakness shown by Willard “Mitt” Romney knows no bounds or seemingly has no bottom as he is systematically...
