Go Loco? or Go Local…

Brad Parker: Sideways is the new direction for this bundle of believers, these frustrated yet sunny souls. Status quo has wrapped its stony fingers around the electoral apparatus of each ardent constituency. We are in a stall, a dead calm sea. And the natives are restless, very restless. But before we muster up the courage for a new direction, let us take a deeper look at the state of the State.

Crony’s Triangulating Fog: Grifters, Greed and the Gullible Americans

Crony

Brad Parker: Americans, behavior-modified to trust advertising, swimming in the dead pool of propaganda environmentally disguised as benign advertising and Infotainment, continue to cop to the Triangulating Fog Machine’s all sizzle no steak obfuscation. The only question left to ask, now that the confidence game is more widely known, is – will they keep buying it like a beaten dog or wake up and demand their money and government back?

Holiday Shopping 2009: The Customer Is Always Right!

Art Torres

Brad Parker: If our former Chair of the CDP was correct, that the Democratic Party is a business, then it follows that it is also just another in the current line of American businesses that can’t or won’t Stand & Deliver on its Goods & Services

That’s Just The Way It Is

Blue-Dog

I believe that the only hope we can believe in is our Progressive Plan for the future. Let us, as Democrats and citizens, disenthrall ourselves from the old tired notion that “That’s just the way it is” and imagine, create and promote a new way – Progressive.

End of the Line for the CDP Caucuses?

Any political party solely dedicated to get out the vote (GOTV) or electioneering is 
doomed. Today, tomorrow, soon. Ask the Republicans. Mickey Edwards, 
former Republican Congressman from Oklahoma, has stated that the demise of the 
Republican Party derives from the day that they decided to turn 
the Party into an “incumbents-only” GOTV machine.

The Walled Garden: Fading Away at the California Democratic Party

empty-promises

Like Dorothy and her intrepid trio of lovable dreamers arriving at Oz, the Progressive Movement barreled into the Democratic Party in 2005 with high ideals and even higher hopes. Now, four scintillating years later we realize it was all a mirage of our own creation. The Party of the Left has been reduced to an […]

A New Progressive Plan: Parker for Progressive Chair 2009

brad-parker

Email, meetups and rabble-rousing speeches. Enewsletters, blogs, websites, listserves and labor rallies. PDA, DFA and MoveOn. CODEPINK, Wellstone Action! and the Courage Campaign. Like a phoenix from the ashes of the Liberal ideal we rose, just four short years ago. We are the resurrection of the Spirit of 76’. We are the flame of liberal […]

I Stand Corrected

Let me be among the first to congratulate my friends who always believed that Senator Barack Obama would win the election for the Presidency. As most of you know, I was on record one year ago stating that it was my firm belief that America was a country beset by discrimination. Furthermore, that this stain […]

Meet The Mockers

After the din of the desperados of defiant manifest destiny had wafted away across the 10,000 lakes of Minnesota. After the air escaped from the red, white, and blue balloons. After the moose gutter and the aerial bomber left the building. When all was quiet as midnight rolled across America. Just then, through the obfuscating […]

Sailing Around the Cape of Good Hope with Hillary – Finally

When last we saw Captain Clinton, she was traversing rough waters. Her crew was in full mutiny mode. Her first mate was on the bow, railing at the fickle seas and the cruel fates that had buffeted their ship of state for many a moon. The body politic languished in a discomposed mood, scrutinizing her […]

The Mothership Hovers Above D’Town: Close Encounters With Progressive Policy

by Brad Parker — Beneath a massive prop that resembled nothing as much as it did the “Mothership” from “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”, strode the stars for the first scene of the 2008 Democratic Convention. Down the gangway they strolled, to a strong R&B beat and a tightly scripted teleprompter. As they read […]
