An Open letter to the White House,

I have received repeated letters asking me to contribute to beat the Republicans/Tea Party/Koch Brothers/Corporate America, all of whom are richer than God and certainly richer than I and everyone I know collectively.  And, I know a few, very comfortable people.  While I am not a fan of pissing into the wind, that is NOT […]

Right-Wing Calls for Provocateurs

Back in August , 2009, I published a small article titled “Goons With Guns” that linked to a memo from a Right-Wing Tea Party organization called Right Principles. The memo called for their supporters to disrupt and harass those that showed up to town hall meetings in support of health care reform. Here is a […]

Republicans are out for blood- Yours.

The Republicans want to kill the health care bill.  They want to strip kids from their parent’s coverage.  They want to eliminate affordable coverage for people who have lost insurance along with their jobs.  They want to put a cap back on the amount of coverage your health insurance will have to pay.  AND, they […]

Open Letter to President Obama

The Joke's On YOU

I guess my critics are right.  There are some things that I do not understand.  I mean, I just read that Australia has raised its birth rate to 1.77 by paying a $3,000 baby bonus to mothers upon the successful birth of their child.  While Australia’s birth rate is lower than the US, their population […]

Amuck

“Amuck,” a place to which we have truly run.   A first grader got arrested and put in Juvie because his mom sent along a dinner knife with his birthday cake so the teacher could cut pieces of it for his classmates.  Now the little guy is suffering PTSD for the nights he spent there.  Adolescents […]
