GOP Helps Make the Case: the Democrats ARE generally a centrist party!

Lenny Curry, Florida state GOP Chair, went to great and exhaustive lengths and twisted himself into deeply woven knots this morning in trying to spin the words of his former leader: former Florida Governor Charlie Crist. In addressing the Republican and former Governor speaking at the DNC convention today and in his endorsement of the re-election of Barack Obama as... Read more »

Does Romney's Church Explain His Effete On Taxes?

Now that presumptive Republican presidential nominee Willard “Mitt” Romney has ended his debacle of a three nation tour attention will most certainly return to his “rope-a-dope” strategy of dodging discussion on why as presidential nominee he is afraid of releasing more of the reported 20 years of tax returns he offered the McCain vetting committee when...

Research and Story: Why Is the Conservative Brain More Fearful?

A very interesting article from AlterNet.org..  Correlates well with my experience(s) in Utah and expands academically on my theory of “spiritual frequency resonance” (more on that later as it is in development for a dramatic narrative).

Let's Drop The Pretense: America Was FOUNDED As a Class-Based Enterprise

In reviewing some of the mail I have received over the last month or so it is very clear (and sadly so): both the far right and the far left argue as they either skipped or failed 8th grade civics — faux historians!  Let us look at some of the more important inconvenient facts that keeps American political...

Obama (center), Romney (right) . . . and Now Dr. Jill Stein (for "the rest") . . . ?

Dr. Jill Stein, presumptive presidential nominee for the Green Party of America 2012, has today announced on her website that she has accepted Willard “Mitt” Romney’s offer for a “rematch” debate.  The two last met in debate during the 2002 Massachussetts Gubenatorial campaign where many pundits found her besting the eventual election winner.

"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...

Has Chris Matthews Jumped the Shark?

There was a time when I respected and looked to Chris Matthews (the Sunday ”Show” and “Hardball”) for decisive and insightful commentary — those days are gone.  Be it his seemingly strange draw (attraction?) to the right-wing, media-loving nutjob Sarah Palin or his collegial and respectful but still slightly condescending attitude toward Senator Bernie Sanders in my opinion, this once...

The Resurgance of the Lunatic Right; blame it on Idol, Perry, and Beiber.

In trying to make sense of the “conservative resurgence” of late – beyond the demographically driven, sociocultural change underway in the US, beyond the fear of the first non-fully-”White” President, beyond the death spasms related to the “last days of Archie Bunkerism” — I can’t help but to also find fault in today’s “youth culture” . ....

The Rise of Hate Groups in the Era of Obama: Obama’s deficiency herein

In response to a recent Huffington Post article (http://huff.to/xRGKrC), I figured it was time to extract an earlier post. As a multi-ethnic person myself, this was Obama’s GREATEST PR blunder: allowing himself to be posited as the “Black” candidate-cum-President. In my masters thesis I systematically deconstructed the mythology surrounding identity vis-a-vis “the mixed race”.  Long story... Read more »
