Given Republican attempts at suppressing the vote, most recently alluded to today by Rep. 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...

A killer article in Daily Finance on Norway and its implementation of the successful, user-friendly, modern “Nordic model” of Socialism . . . and how they, as much as anyone else, are “buying America”. . . . and guess what?  For those who think that the riches of the few are the measure of the “vibrancy” of a...

On the Tragedy in Colorado . . .

As we see elite conservatives desperately trying to cling to the last vestiges of post-colonial privilege and status, duping the working-class to side with them along the way in cutting every social safety net like Edward Scissorhands and leaving a dystopia in the wake that would make Orwell, Vonnegut, and Huxley blush what do we we see: a structurally user “unfriendly”...
