Friday, September 26th, 2008

Best as I can tell, John McCain and the term "maverick" is simply another way of describing the "cowboy diplomacy" we've endured for nearly eight years under George W. Bush. The move by John McCain to suspend his campaign and race to Washington on his white horse is all too ...

Wednesday, July 16th, 2008

We should be able to dis-elect them." - Ralph Nader Conservatives hate socialism. We know this is true because they tell ...

Some stories are too good to be true. It appears that the tax rebate checks which were part of the Bush administration's economic stimulus package have been effective...in stimulating the porn industry.

Personal Incomes Soar Thanks To Tax Rebates-Or Do They?

The Taxation Blame Game

Thursday, June 26th, 2008

Some things are repeated so often that they become accepted as truth, despite the fact that there is little reality attached to them. In politics, one of these "truths" is that Democrats will always raise taxes and Republicans will always try to reduce taxes. But how true is this really? ...

The Public Transit Paradox

Wednesday, June 25th, 2008
