We Can’t Get Fooled Again

Saturday, September 13th, 2008

A lot of politics always consists of negativity – Monday-morning quarterbacking, dredging up past sins or mistakes, and general finger-pointing that can sound like kids whining, “I’m telling!” It would be more useful to focus on the future and on the positive – what do we want to change? How ...

No To The Same Old, Same Old - Invest $72.72 In The Future

Friday, September 12th, 2008

Amidst the misdirection and the attempt of the McCain campaign to yank the change mantra from the Obama campaign, the realities remain the same...John McCain is four more years of George Bush. Would there be differences? Sure, stylistic differences...rhetorical differences...but the kind of difference that will positively impact the average ...

Unintended Consequences: The McCain Strategy Flaw

Friday, September 12th, 2008

If you're going to foment a gender driven divide, or any other contrivance, in order to win votes, you have to realize that its effect can't be isolated within one party...and it isn't apt to resonate with those voters who haven't the time to participate in the pettiness of politics. ...

21st Century GOP

Wednesday, September 10th, 2008

  Taking a cue from the King of Made-Up Reality, George W. Bush, the GOP and their candidates have unleashed an alternate reality that they want all Americans to believe. King George has spent the last 8 years not listening to reality. According to Bush, the economy is fine, Iraq was the ...

Pig In A Poke - Don’t Forget November 2, 2006

Wednesday, September 10th, 2008

It's easy to get caught up in the heat of the moment...and it's also easy to question the judgment of Barack Obama and his campaign in light of the constant unfounded GOP attacks. While I share the same concerns, the current moment made me recall a similar moment prior to ...

Reality Check: No Matter Who Wins The Election, We’re Still Screwed

Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

(photo credit www.werescrewed08.com) Convention fever is lighting up the 2008 presidential elections here in the United States- the time for the major political parties to formally nominate their candidates for the general election, for the party faithful to gather and pat each other on the back while mending wounds inflicted during the ...

John McCain - Four More Years Of The Accidental Presidency?

Monday, August 11th, 2008

Well how about that? It looks like the rhetoric of the straight talk express is being lifted nearly word for word...straight out of Wikipedia. If you haven't heard the news, it appears that several passages from the candidates comments on the conflict between Russia and Georgia are notably similar to ...

CDC Report - U.S. HIV Infections 40% Higher Than Estimates

Sunday, August 3rd, 2008

A new report suggests that the number of annual HIV infections in the U.S. has been drastically underestimated...or underreported. While this is a significant revelation, I'm of the opinion that the back story may be far more telling. Let's look at the new data first. From The International Herald Tribune: The United ...

“Race” For The White House: Who’s Driving The Straight Talk Express?

Friday, August 1st, 2008

I suspect that John McCain is no longer the driver of the straight-talk express. I say as much in light of two developments. One, in the last few weeks, the McCain campaign has been retooled with a number of former Bush campaign operatives...operatives who cut their teeth under the tutelage ...

The Optional President

Friday, August 1st, 2008

Many call George Bush the Imperial President - although he thinks he's more of a new messiah fella. I prefer to call him the Optional President. He behaves as if the law is nothing more than a rough guideline he can opt into or out of like a failed bank's ...
