Why Willard "Mitt" Romney will NEVER be AMERICA's President

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 »

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...

UPHELD! Way To Go SCOTUS: the nation's ER's now may be saved!

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...
