GOP’s Dreakdown?

This gallery contains 2 photos.


It is an interesting conversation. More so knowing that it is coming from a GOP discussion group. As an observer of politics for more than 25-years and a commentator/pundit for the last five, I am now observing cracks in the … Continue reading

All praise the Occupiers and the Constitution

This gallery contains 2 photos.


“Where are the liberal, progressive and forward thinking Americans? Where are the protesters we saw in the 1960s and 70s who did change the world?”

Those long-haired hippy-freaks who brought about social and economic change. Who opened the door to civil rights for minorities. Who worked tirelessly to stop an unpopular war with the use of the public voice and vote. Where are the men and women Baby Boomers whose voices have been lost? It is their children who are now speaking up. Continue reading

The 13th Crusade – Terror, Fear and Paranoia


My fear today, and the fear of many others in my various circles, is that the idea of a “Crusade” is now being used as a tool in many if not all 2012 political campaigns. It can be heard nationally through the words of Gov. Rick Perry, Rep. Michelle Bachman, Sarah Palin, and other right-wing right-wingers, claiming that the word of their God should be what governs the people, not the secular Constitution. Continue reading

Not a Christian Nation


Allow me to discuss what I do know about American history.

The original conquest of the New World by the Europeans was to find treasure, spices and a quick route to the Orient. As it is today, commerce is the director of government. The primary reason was not to spread Christianity in its various forms.

The original colonies, English, Swedish, Dutch, Spanish, French and Portuguese, were chartered for commerce. Not one charter spoke to the establishment of a religious colony. However, this does not prevent the Christian nation proponents from referring to the Massachusetts Bay Colony and the two Puritan settlements of Salem and Plymouth. What they seem to neglect is the third Massachusetts settlement of Ma-re, which was an Anglo-Saxon pagan settlement. Continue reading

Who is holding the Republicans hostage


I wrote this on Tuesday morning (7/26), so I may be a bit behind the news, that is if (and that appears to be a big if) something positive happens in the next 24 to 48 hours. I doubt that anyone is going to move from their current trenches.

I listened with great care to Mr. Obama’s and Mr. Boehner’s renditions of what is going on. I listened to them again this morning. Here is my opinion of the bottom line. Continue reading

Allen West – Behavior unbecoming a U.S. Representative


Allen West, who tends to speak of himself in the third person, was upset over Wasserman Schultz’s comment, but should understand by know that this is only politics and not to take these comments personally. But he does not and he did.

In an email sent to Wasserman Schultz, West said, “You (Wasserman Schultz) are the most vile, unprofessional and despicable member of the U.S. House of Representative (sic).” Continue reading
