NINA TURNER ON THE NIGHTLY SHOW PANEL…

PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT…

July 22nd, 2016

There has been a political conspiracy meme running this election year(s) that Donald Trump is actually in cahoots with the Clintons, more effectively than anyone could have imagined, to destroy the traditional Republican candidates and then self-destruct so that Hillary can dance into the White House. Or, maybe the run is all a prank gone […]

THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE LOVES HILLARY…?

July 21st, 2016

As if anyone needs the final little nudge to convince them that both parties are fucked because they’re both so far up the asses of the billionaires that Charon gets more sunlight, then consider this headline from The Intercept: Chamber of Commerce May Prefer Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump. Zaid Jilani writes: The president of […]

NINA TURNER AND JILL STEIN IN 2016…?

July 17th, 2016

When I checked my stats for yesterday I noticed a sudden interest in a post from 13 February: NINA TURNER A VICE PRESIDENTIAL CONTENDER…? In that post I wrote: So, yesterday I got into a fairly heated debate with a co-worker about Hilary Clinton vs. Bernie Sanders. At one point I said that there were […]

I FEEL LIKE A CLEVELAND INDIANS FAN…

July 12th, 2016

I’m no sports fan, but today I have an inkling what coming so close time after time after time and then losing feels like. I finally get the feeling of mumbling “wait until next year” into your beer. I’ll get right to the nut. I got a 1,422-word email from Bernie five hours ago. The […]

THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS IS STILL EVIL…

July 9th, 2016

In my book evil is like dark or cold, the absence of their opposites good, light and heat. So, for me, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump both represent the absence of good and voting for either is a negative vote for my country; a country and a constitution I gave 11 years of my life […]

NINA TURNER A VICE PRESIDENTIAL CONTENDER…?

February 13th, 2016

So, yesterday I got into a fairly heated debate with a co-worker about Hilary Clinton vs. Bernie Sanders. At one point I said that there were plenty of women I would happily vote for as our next president. (In 2014 I voted for two women running for President/Vice President: Jill Stein and Cheri Honkala). Clinton […]

IF YOU HAVE NOT YET VOTED, CONSIDER…

November 6th, 2012

Glenn Greenwald writes: This, to me, has always been the most uniquely pernicious aspect of the War on Terror civil liberties assaults of the last decade: they will not end when the “war” does because the “war” will have no end. Each new power is embedded permanently into the political framework, incrementally transforming the political […]

THE TWITTER CURSE…

November 5th, 2012

[Updated on 8 November.] Mano Singham writes: Dana Millbank reports on what he saw during the debates. He said that the reporters were not in the auditorium but were in a separate room in which the debate was shown on a large screen. But the reporters were also glued to their laptop screens reading other […]

FIND ME A REPUBLICAN REJECTING FEMA HELP…

November 4th, 2012

Matt Taibbi writes: In the abstract, most Americans want a smaller and less intrusive government. In reality, what Americans really want is a government that spends less money on other people. Elect Jill Stein and Cheri Honkala…

THIS WILLARD MITT ROMNEY BELIEVES…

November 4th, 2012

Robert Reich writes: It’s time for a final summary of the worldview of Mitt Romney. Despite its contradictions and ellipses, Romneyism, as this creed might be called, has an internal coherence. Here are its ten core principles: 1. Corporations are the basic units of society. Corporations are people, and the overriding purpose of an economy […]

ISN’T IT BETTER TO VOTE FOR SOMEONE…?

Elect Jill Stein and Cheri Honkala…

JILL STEIN DOES TALK ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE…

October 29th, 2012

Tim Russo writes: I used to get mocked by my friends for having any faith at all in the American electorate. Most of my political colleagues over my 24 year history in Ohio and international politics think the American voter, and particularly the independent undecided American voter, is just a total moron. I’d always argue […]

IF GOVERNMENT IS OUR BIGGST ENTERPRISE…?

October 29th, 2012

Tom Peters writes: If there is a single tragic flaw that mars our biggest enterprises, it is conservatism — the failure to fail, and fail big, in an era of unprecedented volatility and ambiguity. In a chaotic world, your strategy must be chaotic enough (sufficiently failure-strewn) to up the odds of keeping pace with the […]

FOCUS ON WHAT OBAMA HAS DONE…

October 28th, 2012

Matt Stroller writes: So why oppose Obama? Simply, it is the shape of the society Obama is crafting that I oppose, and I intend to hold him responsible, such as I can, for his actions in creating it. Many Democrats are disappointed in Obama. Some feel he’s a good president with a bad Congress. Some […]

VOTING GREEN IN A PURPLE STATE…

October 28th, 2012

Sidney Smith and I agree: I live in a purple part of the country (Virginia) and move in academic circles, so of course I know many, many people who will be voting for Obama. It is impossible to know, but if I sodomized the Easter Bunny in front of their children the look on my […]
