More Reasons Not to Support Hillary’s Bid for the Nomination

If Hillary’s connections with Wall Street bankers and her vote to help Bush find the phantom “weapons of mass destruction” isn’t enough to dissuade you from supporting her in the primary race, then here are some more reasons buried in her history. We’ll start with her years as First Lady. During her husband’s run for the White House back in ’92, a central campaign issue was healthcare reform. Indeed, during his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention that year, he brought up healthcare reform at least three times: Less […]

The Bigotry Quotient

Never fear, this isn’t about Paula Deen. She’s just some kind of weird canary in a coal mine. It’s the coal mine that should bother us. You see, what I find so freaking not understandable in the second decade of the 21st century, nearly fifty years after the civil rights law and the beginning of desegregation in the South, is how anyone could think a “plantation party” would be a good idea. She said she wanted to dress-up “little” black people, I guess to pretend she was back in some […]

The Tea Party’s Feudal Lord

It boggles my mind how the tea baggers can get it so wrong. I think most Tea Party folks probably trace their ancestry back to Europe. Most probably they imagine they originally hail from England, since once upon a time Merry Olde was considered to be our “mother country.” […]

The Agenda

The way I see it, we’re preaching to the choir. If you’re reading this, then you most likely somewhat agree with us, or you are at least tolerant of the our viewpoint. Unless you’re a trolling teabagger, then you’re here because you want to go slack jawed and slap yourself, so you can go on Facebook and post a link to our site and tell everyone how laughable we are. If you’re the latter, you’re going to be disappointed. You’ll not find much fodder for your amazement here. The way […]

Obama and the Supremes

I can’t try to play to the middle anymore, because the middle is downright confused. All I can do is tell the truth as I see it; I can assure you that will usually be far from the middle. Or will it? Do we really see the middle? Most of the people I know think a lot like me, we share a wavelength even though we’re on different channels. We support Obama, kind-of-sort-of. We believe in offering our neighbors a helping hand when they need it, and think that would […]

Teens to Congress – “We Have Sex!”

Editor’s note: The Coffee Party movement posted this on their Facebook page today with the following intro: “Since Planned Parenthood has become ground zero in the fight over the budget, please watch this powerful, viral video. Imagine a reality-based, not an ideology-based, discussion about the budget!” Co-incidentally, showing up on our wall right next to this video was the following status update by our friend Matthew Arnett with KRKC News in King City, California: “Maybe if Republicans read the study on unwanted babies becoming democrats, they will leave the funding […]

Today’s Video: Donald Duck Meets Glenn Beck

Being baby-boomers who grew up in the 1950s and 60s, we couldn’t resist this way too funny take on Glenn Beck and the rest of the right-wing radio talker crowd. It’s almost enough to make us forget that Disney, in our estimation, is on the wrong side of the culture wars. It’s almost enough to make us yearn for the days when Uncle Walt visited us in our living rooms each and every Sunday night. We were younger then, and much more naive… httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfuwNU0jsk0

The Voucher Vultures

Radio talker Allen Hunt’s signature line is that his show “isn’t about right and left, it’s about right and wrong.” At first this sounds good, but after you listen to him for about fifteen minutes you realize his opinion is not much different than that of most of the other guys on AM radio, the right is right and the left is wrong. As I was driving home from work the other night, he was doing his favorite schtick, which is bashing Obama. On this night, he was all over […]

Today’s Video: Who’s Funding the Republicans?

Did you ever wonder who’s behind the funding for the campaigns the Republicans are mounting for the upcoming midterm election? American Crossroads & our old friend Karl Rove, as this video points out… httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gDsBPOkP7g

Feds Want to Crack Your Blackberry

If you’re wondering why Research In Motion (RIM), maker of the Blackberry, was loathe to cooperate with the authorities in Dubai and India when they demanded access to encrypted Blackberry calls, it’s because they knew no matter how little they cracked that door, it would eventually open wide. Need proof? Take a look at Monday’s New York Times in which we learn that the Feds want new regulations to force companies like RIM to design back doors into their offerings to allow easy wiretap access by law enforcement. It’ll be […]
