  1. In Defense of the Minority
    (published April 17, 2014)
    by
      When we hear the word, “minority”, we tend to think about race and we assume that people of the same race share the same concerns; concerns of the latino community, the african-american community, etc. They all seem to agree on certain issues, but within these groups of minorities is an even smaller minority, the […]

  2. The Rally Point … the answer to so many of America’s questions!
    (published April 16, 2014)
    by
    As a cadet at The Citadel, I remember learning about the military concept of the rally point in Army ROTC.  A rally point is a place you identify before a battle.  It’s a place all the soldiers must be able to find should the battle go badly.  A rally point is where you go to […]

  3. The Ukraine is on its Last Leg
    (published April 15, 2014)
    by
    It is in the best interest of the Western World that President Putin is allowed to take the rest of the Ukraine. Yes, that is right let President Putin have it. The idea of economic sanctions is a bad idea because the sanctions will not hurt Russia alone. Instead, there will be repercussions across the […]

  4. This Koch’s not for you!
    (published April 15, 2014)
    by
    A few months ago, the Washington Post looked inside the Koch brothers political empire[i].  The Post said, “The money flows through a complex maze of tax-exempt groups and limited liability corporations, creating multiple barriers that shield the identities of the donors.” Over twenty organizations are shown, but probably the biggest influence is Americans for Prosperity […]

  5. The best Republican candidate for president in 2014 is …
    (published April 14, 2014)
    by
    Whew, I am glad we quickly moved away from New Jersey’s overweight liberal governor!  Chris Christie has no national experience, and we don’t need another bully.  A president is supposed to be a leader, not a dictator.  A real American leader knows how to use more than a phone and a pen. Look at those […]

  6. The lesson of Ukraine
    (published April 12, 2014)
    by
    The lesson comes from more than just the Ukraine.  It come from Asia where powers there wrestle over resources at sea, or from the South Indian Ocean, where a jetliner apparently rests at the bottom.  The lesson is; human activities may not be independence of an Almighty God, but they are clearly not tied  to […]

  7. Equal Pay? Women get what they Deserve!
    (published April 11, 2014)
    by
    The whole argument about equal pay for equal work is nothing more than a female bitch session. In fact, the non-stop talking with each other in the office or out in the field makes women much less productive than men. It is hard to find a woman that can work as well as a man. […]

    (published April 10, 2014)
    by
    In Poetry, this is the story of the right wing takeover of the Supreme Court, aided by the consent of the Senate. Supreme Court rulings, in effect, appointed George W. Bush president in 2000 over Al Gore. It later reduced individual rights and enhanced those of large corporations. The five right-wing justices opened the door […]

  9. Daily commercialization of Obama on internet for five years running!
    (published April 10, 2014)
    by
    How many times on the internet have you seen President Obama credited with promoting cheaper mortgage rates? I mean it has been continual, almost from when he took office. The ads repeatedly say that it is Obama holding down mortgage rates.  I also think I have seen ads for going to college.  Not any specific […]

    Americans will not even have a choice on what they are voting for in 2016. If the political elite and the establishment get their way it will end up as an establishment election. The more closely one looks at the presidential candidates the only time a Republican candidate ran for President that was not part […]

  11. Chris Christie: User and Exploiter?
    (published April 7, 2014)
    by
    According to Lee Fang’s “Pensiongate” in The Nation, by the end of his first term as New Jersey (NJ) governor, Chris Christie placed state retiree assets in the hands of several hedge fund managers who have backed his political career, seeming to provide huge returns for comparatively modest campaign contributions to the Republican Governor’s Association  […]

  12. Where is the US in the 21st Century?
    (published April 7, 2014)
    by
    Between technology, new political and economic realities, and chaos and exhaustion within the United States, our national character and our place in the world are clearly not those of the “Leader of the Free World.”  Is it liberal to want a calm re-evaluation of our national interests and our own priorities?  Is it liberal to […]

    How they betrayed and defrauded Libertarians and the Ron Paul Revolution No one person or corporation is entirely responsible for what is happening to people across America, and to the land, water, and air which encloses and sustains all of us today.

  14. 2014 American Elections will be like in France
    (published April 6, 2014)
    by
    It would be nice if the latest voting results in France are a prelude to what is going to happen in America in November. The only problem is that like in France—if the Republicans take more seats in the House and win the Senate—the government will still be controlled by the President and his administrative […]

    (published April 6, 2014)
    by
    Keep in mind Americans: the news you consume tends to be biased, sometimes extremely so. Regarding foreign relations, it is biased toward the jingoistic view, a view that is filtered through the Obama administration and/or corporate media eyes. When it comes to foreign affairs, you have hard right, always critical of President Obama, corporate, protective […]

  16. Immigration Reform and the Working Poor
    (published April 4, 2014)

    This President has a virtual grab bag of goodies to play with when it comes to American immigration policy. It seems that the President can manipulate immigration policy with a number of governmental departments. For instance: the Department of Justice, the Department of Labor, and the United States Department of State are just a few […]

  18. Democracy Sinking!
    (published April 3, 2014)
    by
    Five members of the Supreme Court must be bent on delivering our government – lock, stock and barrel – to the rich. As if Citizens United weren’t bad enough, the justices have opened our election process even wider to the era of a corporatocracy. Citizens already have had pitched battles fighting the Koch brothers and […]

    I am a creature of habit, and I like it that way. So when I walk into my regular McDonalds restaurant in Japan (yes, they have them here), order the same thing I usually get, and they don’t respond the way they usually do, I start to wonder if they’re playing an April Fool’s trick […]

    Can the United States finally break out of it’s “super power” mentality and finally get back to the original visions for this grand nation.

    (published March 31, 2014)
    by
    Details on the Gibson, Dunn and Cruccher report, intended to exonerate Chris Christie of all Bridgegate blame, stands out as a heavy-handed attempt to not only verbally exalt Christie but also attempt to steer attention to Bridget Kelly and Bill Stepien. It appears to be dramatized, prepared and calculated to cover all probable prosecution bases […]

  24. Idealism and Foreign Policy make bad Bedfellows
    (published March 31, 2014)
    by
    There is a problem with the President and that is his idealistic attitude about everything except the goodness of America and the American people. President Obama is losing on the domestic front and his poll numbers demonstrate that. The President has an economic approval rating that has just hit an all-time low according to a […]

    Words do matter.  Words also can deceive, the Left are masters of deception.   Remember “You can keep your insurance and you can keep your doctor.” The Left has attempted more than once in American history to paint a more friendly, benign, high minded policy direction through the term “progress.”  They appeal to the American people by offering […]

    My family used to ask me, “When are you going to have kids of your own?” I used to make a joke of it: in a restaurant or shopping mall I’d hear a baby screaming or a toddler throwing a tantrum, and then utter to no one in particular “Tell me again why I should […]

    (published March 30, 2014)

      By Nita Wiggins Why does Bill Gates’ voice matter in the discussion about the minimum wage in the US? Mr. Gates’ opposition to increasing the pay matters because he’s making money hand-over-fist off of the fast food and discount megastore businesses.  Mr. Gates holds 21,000,000  shares in McDonald’s and Walmart, combined.   His two […]

  28. Was Bridgegate a test – did Christie have the nerve to use government against the people?
    (published March 29, 2014)
    by
    As Bridgegate continues to be revealed, one has to wonder why?  Why did Christie’s people do such a stupid “Watergate” type event? President Obama and his administration emanated from Chicago politics.  Chicago was the home of Capone, and machine politics.  President Obama and his administration have flagrantly, repeatedly and blatantly used the powers of government […]

    Monday marks the last day for uninsured individuals in the U.S. to avoid an extra tax penalty in April 2015 by signing up for Obamacare now. Will they do so? For the majority, the answer appears to be a clear “no”. Unfortunately, their “no” doesn’t appear to be an informed “no”, a “no” uttered as […]

    New Jersey (NJ) taxpayers will be happy to hear that they spent over $1 million to clear their governor, Chris Christie of any Bridgegate wrongdoing – well, sort of.

    (published March 26, 2014)
    by
    Left or Right, few would dispute the high level of polarization in America! President Obama and his Progressives have pushed the American agenda to the extreme Left.  Obama Care is the centerpiece, but it is not the only piece. And compromise certainly has not been their tactic.  Brute force, in terms of party discipline was […]

    In our media world there are varying combinations of the responsible and irresponsible news sources.

    There is a brand of conservative thought, articulated by most conservative radio talk show hosts that extends America’s position as Leader of the Free World into the Post Cold War world.  When you listen to them, their criticisms of President Obama is not that he should not be involved in what goes on between Russia […]

    (published March 18, 2014)

    In this election year, Democrats must again choose a campaign slogan to run on. They can’t blame the wars in Syria and Afghanistan on Bush anymore. They own those. Had Obamacare been a success, they could have run on that. It’s not, so they can’t. That leaves only raising the minimum wage. So guess what […]

    Conservatives and the GOP seem to see much to like in a great deceiver, Vladimir Putin. And perhaps they do have similarities. Both Putin and purveyors of right-wing policy seem to want control of everything and everyone. Both deceive. Both seem to care nothing about converting their audience — only subjugating.

    It can be argued that most of the problems with American culture and the American family were caused by the Women’s Rights Movement of the 1960’s.
