Robert Reich: No To TransPacific Partnership TPP

The time has come for Progressives to say NO to Obama and his celebration of the testosterone free political lifestyle in dealing with corporations. TPP is the lastest example.  I applaud Robert Reich and MoveOn.org for attempting to educate the American public on the dangers of the TransAtalantic Partnership or “TPP”. But they don’t go […]

Brian Williams Did A Hillary Clinton But Gets Punished

Yes Brian Williams did wrong by saying he was under fire. But then so did Hillary Clinton when she claimed she landed in Bosnia and she and her party where under enemy sniper fire!  But Brian Williams will get six months in limbo from his job while Hillary Clinton became Secretary of State and may […]

Obama’s Prayer Breakfast Speech Arouses Existential Anxiety

President Obama did not attack Christianity in his national prayer breakfast speech. But he did arouse the existential anxiety of those who have a Christian exceptionalism weltanguang. Many today want to believe that Christianity is unique in the world as the religion of peace. Christianity has been a force for good in this world but […]

Deflate Gate: Freedom For NE Patriots Vs Collectivist NFL?

The recent controversy concerning the New England Patriots deflating the footballs of their opponents serves to remind us concerning what can happen if the power of the regulators is diminished. That is to say unless we want to argue Libertarian style that the “freedom” of the NE Patriots is being usurped by the NFL COLLECTIVISTS. […]

Barrack Obama’s 2015 State Of The Union Speech

Well it is that time of the year again for President Barrack Obama to give his state of the union speech. President Obama is slowly learning that his approach to the Republicans has been far to timid. I agree he was stronger this time. But Barrack Obama, to this Progressive will go down as one […]

Robert Reich Needs To Confront The Meme Of Trickle Down Identity

Recently Robert Reich did an article on Alternet concerning the growing plight of the American worker. The former Labor Secretary believes the greatest threat is the growing sense of insecurity. Well maybe he should have told his old buddy Bill Clinton not to pursue NAFTA. But the problem started even before Clinton. As Secretary Reich states […]

Justice For Zemir Begic: Where Is The News Media?

Not far from Ferguson MO a White male was murdered by a predominantly Black teenage mob. There may have also been a Hispanic youth in the mob. Witnesses say the Black youths yelled racist statements as they killed Zemir Begic. Now for those of my fellow liberals who are self loathing Whites here is your […]

So How Long Till Walmart Imports Cheap Goods From Cuba?

President Obama has announced we are normalizing diplomatic relations with Cuba. Many Republicans are going ballistic. But I bet many are calling their stock brokers so they can cash in on future factories that will be built in Cuba. Just think of all the money to be made on the misery of those people and […]

Obama Meows And Backs GOP Wall Street Give Away

President Barrack Obama has backed a give away to Wall Street to avoid a Government shutdown. Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren and Senator Bernie Sanders have the guts to say no but not Barrack Obama.   Once again Barrack Obama has shown he is incapable of being the heir to deceased President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. FDR […]

Hillary Clinton Wins Poll Of Millionaires But Liberals Want Warren

Well now “Our Beloved Lady of NAFTA”, Hillary Clinton was the choice for President in 2016 by millionaires. She beat out Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush and Chris Christie. But how can this be you ask? Well the reason is, I am sure, because Barrack Obama cannot run in 2016! I am sick of Democrats playing […]

Ed Schultz Cannot Reconcile Obama And TPP

Unlike Ed Schultz I have long given up on Barrack Obama as a Progressive. Ed Schultz must have a lot of Obama bots as viewers because he tippie toes while criticizing President Obama on TPP . But then again MSNBC is nothing but an Obama cheerleader club as opposed to being a straight Progressive channel. […]

Michael Brown Vs Trevon Martin

I am a European style Social Democrat to the left of Obama but I have to disagree with the slanted views of AlterNet concerning Michael Brown. Are we Progressives all to be like children in a Sunday catechism class and bow to rote dogma? I love AlterNet and similar left leaning websites. But I disagree […]

NO DCCC: Obama Has Betrayed His Progressive Base

I just received a form letter from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee asking me to sign their petition supporting Barrack Obama. As my readers know I am to the left of Obama on most issues. I voted for him in 2008. What a let down. I urge you to only vote for a Progressive Democrat and […]

Immigrating To A Nation Of Law And Mercy

I want to find a way to allow all of the current illegal immigrants a means to become legal.   Americans have a good sense of fairplay and also an intuition that can catch BS. Let us review first how we got into this mess and I will use my own family. My maternal grand parents […]

Obama Delivers: A GOP Senate – Is That Change We Can Believe In?

Great work President Obama! How anyone could take a clear mandate for change and pig headedly undermine the Progressive Agenda as has Barrack Obama is beyond belief. Well what do you expect from the role model of the “testosterone free political lifestyle”? Oh but those mean nasty Republicans said such horrible things about him. So […]

Question: Did Insurance Have Any Role In Sending Ebola Victim Eric Duncan Home?

I cannot understand how Eric Duncan, the first person to develop Ebola in America could have been sent home with a fever of 103 degrees! We were told that that his travel history from Western Africa did not make it into the database that the doctors viewed! But the information was available to the nurse […]

ISIS Close To Baghdad And Kobani

ISIS is closing in on Baghdad with their dream of restoring the Caliphate. Shiite Iran will not allow this to happen. However the claim by ISIS leader to be the new Caliph is even heresy to Sunni Muslims. So where are the Muslim armies lining up to stop all this from occurring? Not to mention […]

Obama Resigns Bully Pulpit While Koch Dark Money Flows

Cenk Uygur wrote a post in the Huffington Post, “What Has Obama Done For You Lately“? In his article he correctly assails the President for not being a Progressive and abandoning his base. I agree with Cenk Uygur. I would like to add more details. We had control of both Houses of Congress for the […]

Don’t Let ISIS Behead Our Economy

I just love how all the right wingers are set to jump into Iraq again. When questioning many of them I find they are not even aware of the differences between the former Iraqi Government and Iran! In the science fiction movie and tv series “Star Trek” the United Federation of Planets is governed by […]

Scotland: The Referendum Is Important To Americans Pt 2

The referendum is over but the results are of lasting importance to us in America and particularly to Progressives. If Scotland voted for independence their citizens would be free of the somewhat more conservative south in their quest to achieve a “more just society“! As I stated in the prior post I believe that issue […]

Scotland: The Referendum Is Important To Americans Pt 1

What is occurring in Scotland is of vital importance and relevance to American Progressives! First a confession. I am of of Scottish background! I am proud of my heritage!  But I believe Americans with Scot roots have made their choice to live here and should respect those who have are closer to the facts and […]

Talking Point: How Organized Money Corrupts Democracy Pt 2

In this article let’s examine how organized money is corrupting our democracy on the corporate level. A democracy is defined by the rule of “one person – one vote”. The market place is defined by the rule of “one dollar – one vote”! Both of these meme’s are in analogous positions to the Twin Spirits […]

Talking Point: How Organized Money Corrupts Democracy Pt 1

I would like to present some talking points you can use with friends and family concerning the “separation of corporation and state”. We might actually think of this as two issues: The problem of individual big donors throwing corrupting the decision making processes of a democratic society and The problem of corporations corrupting the decision […]

ISIS Militants Attack Obscure Religions Unknown To Most

There are in Iraq two obscure religions that predate Christianity. One of them the “Mandaens” revere John the Baptist as one of their greatest prophets and say that he did not accept Jesus as his savior. Another larger group called the Yazidis are also monotheists but believe in a God head of Seven Archangels that […]

Senator Elizabeth Warren Calls Out CUT AND RUN Corporations

I am an unapologetic Social Democrat to the left of Barrack Obama. I applaud Senator Elizabeth Warren‘s recent attack (see video below) on these CUT AND RUN CORPORATIONS who have no loyalty to the nation that gave them birth, protection, incorporation and profits! I urge Progressives to utilize the rhetorical devices of the right wing […]
