Wanted: US President, No Experience Required

Thursday, July 3rd, 2008

Chances are you got your job at least partially by displaying some sort of experience doing it. The experience could come from almost anywhere. You might have been doing the same thing for years with another company. You may have attended a technical college, gotten a university degree, or volunteered ...

Bush: Lame Duck Walking?

Sunday, June 8th, 2008

Good bye ... so long ... Godspeed. Finally ... about time ... last one out, turn off the lights. Whatever path you choose - you vapid, pretzel choking shitheel - remember this: "you won't always have Poland". Both parties now have their presumptive nominees and the primary season from hell turns ...

It’s Time the Democrats Get Their Big Tent in Order

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008

  As expected, yesterday's post about Hillary Clinton's campaign prompted considerable vitriol from ardent Hillary supporters. Though their complaints were numerous - and to my thinking mostly groundless - their main contention was that Hillary hadn't been given a chance to make her case for having 100% of the Michigan and ...

Race Relations Be Damned

Thursday, May 15th, 2008

Listening to talk radio or watching even the network television news you find an avenue of opinions that run contrary to the current trend that favors Hillary Clinton because of the fact that Barack Obama just happens to be a black man. When I was trying to toss down a ...

The Bush-Clinton Parallel

Sunday, May 11th, 2008

History sometimes cycles through repeating patterns that aren't easily noticeable. Political history - obfuscated as it is by partisan squabbling and self-interest - is a particularly difficult place to notice them. Sure, there are plenty of polls, records galore, and election results to ponder, but ideological differences tend to make ...

Hey Let’s Help Hillary Raise Money

Wednesday, May 7th, 2008

It dawned on me that I should really start being fair to Mrs. Clinton. While there is virtually no way she can win the nomination without political trickery, that doesn't mean we shouldn't lend her some support after her crushing loss in North Carolina and narrow "victory" in Indiana. So ...

Quote of the Day

Monday, May 5th, 2008

I frequently come across something written by the non-celebrity blogger that leaves me nodding in agreement. On BIO, you don't have to be famous to be quoted. From Some Guy with a Website: Let's imagine, for a moment, that the Clinton campaign's gas tax rebate idea was, instead, the sudden declaration that evolution ...

Quote of the Day

Thursday, May 1st, 2008

I do not have a race card. I was not issued one at birth with instructions on how and when to play it. When I call a person out for an ig’nant race-baiting comment that action is not 'playing the race card'…it’s calling a person out for an ig’nant race-baiting comment. If that ...

What’s a White Man to Do?

Tuesday, April 29th, 2008

  No doubt white men hold a lot of power, but that doesn't mean they carry the master key to every portal of power. Some actually vote based on nothing more than a belief that one candidate is superior to another based on actual facts and free-thinking opinions. White men aren't ...

Shades of America

Friday, April 25th, 2008

 A couple of observations about race are rumbling through my brain today. First, one thing the credible Obama candidacy has done is free African Americans from a lot of political baggage. Obama's "yes we can" is as much about discarding a defeatist mindset in blacks as in the country as a ...
