Trump is No Conservative, But Neither is.....Jeb Bush

Date: 08/19/2015

When Donald Trump’s critics in the Republican-friendly media blast him for not being a genuine conservative, they are correct . For roughly the last quarter of a century, Trump has spent most of his time—until about five years ago—helping to get Democrats elected and reelected. One-third of all of his political donations have gone to supporting Democrats and, by implication, their causes. Thou ...

[caption id="attachment_9424" align="alignleft" width="252"] via google[/caption] I am so sick of anti-teacher ignorance that I could spit, as my Aunt Bonnie would have said. “ It’s nearly impossible to fire a bad teacher .” No. No, no, and no, it’s not. But you don’t REALLY know that, do you, businessman David Welch? Or Time editor Nancy Gibbs? What you know is one small piece of ersatzeduca ...

Facing the Abyss & Saving Grace

Date: 04/15/2015

Human beings and our current political systems see it as a "human right" to restructure the biosphere, because that is what the economy dictates. Business interests that commit acts of destruction on the environmental system are supported because they provide jobs. Governments and politicians turn a blind eye because they really don't know what else to do, and are too concerned with surviving ...

The Neocon Left: The "Deputized" Right

Date: 06/13/2014

What is commonly referred to as “the right” by the so-called “mainstream media” is actually what I prefer to call “the Deputized Right”—a faux right-wing that takes its marching orders from the left. More specifically, the Deputized Right is actually nothing other than the neoconservative left that the recognizable left permits to exist. Anyone with any doubts on this score should consider t ...

Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK! And we'll be having a LOT of family over for the big celebratory feast. As I'm sure many of you will. And if you're like our family, not everyone is ... well, in accord on lots of things.

no one loves a complex story, or, what no one is telling you about the Affordable Care Act

Date: 11/05/2013

This is by way of good news. It's also a counter-narrative to all the horror stories about the Affordable Care Act.Because once a journalist, always a journalist, I guess.

Date: 08/13/2013

After reading a story in the Telegraph about the President's dog, Bo, being helicoptered to Martha's Vineyard on one of two MV-22 Ospreys (a hybrid aircraft which takes off like a helicopter but flies like a plane,) for yet another family vacation, I just sighed and thought, really?  Who flies their dog on a separate airplane? Can't the dog travel with its owners on the same aircraft? Obviousl ...
