LOL! Fox News Fears Ex-GOP Governor Crist!

Last night, Republican Florida Governor Charlie Crist denounced what has become the Right-Wing Party and in so doing noted his mentor Ronald Reagan and forced him to turn-the-phrase Reagan used, in this case that Crist “didn’t leave the Republican Party, the Republican Party left him.” As Crist the “former” Republican opined upon the current crop of “Republicans,” Fox...

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

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...

Romney-Ryan 2012: Hypocrites Incarnate and Extraordinaire . . .

Willard “Mitt” Romney, today further exposed his vision of the world as one filled with entitlement and hypocrisy in choosing the Ayn Rand devotee Paul Ryan as his running mate –  strange bedfellows are the deceased and oft discredited atheist Rand and the somewhat recently maligned Catholic Ryan.

Their "Liberty," Our "Tyranny"

In the current wave of rhetorical bumper-sticker jargon and esoteric jibber-jabber, perhaps no concept reigns supreme over the hyperbolic as much as the mythical attachment to the notions of “liberty” and “freedom” and the delusion that there is but one definition for each term.  Both ideals as employed in much contemporary usage are offered up...

How Living In A Red State Turned Me . . . Green?

This will be a fun essay, one born of pure experience and personal observation.  Before I begin I must offer a disclaimer that this essay is only for those possessing a decent education in that I will be reflecting on my transformation from a moderate Democrat who supported Obama in 2008 to a Green Socialist...

"Renounce and Repudiate": Will Republicans Hold Romney to Obama Standard?

Given deafening Republican silence during the national period of anxious disquiet regarding police and state response to the murder of  Trayvon Martin, an unease due in part to Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law signed by Romney supporter former Florida Governor Jeb Bush (and an equal silence from the presumptive Republican presidential nominee Willard “Mitt” Romney), a surveyed reflection of the Republicans and their presumptive standard bearer...

On "Bumper Sticker 'Patriotism'"

This is an extract of a recent reply to a post.  I thought it merited its own!    . . . . we undoubtedly both see ourselves as “patriots” though all too often it seems there are certain types who use the term with a limiting, antiseptic-like application; in a manner that seems to simply...
