Steve Ybarra: Newtron signals the beginning of this war by asking people to go and talk to the “Bishops” and hear for themselves that the Catholic Church is being destroyed by these edicts. Wait, ask the BISHOPS!?!
Steve Ybarra: The hatemongers who fear the so-called welfare state (colored to the colored section) will begin the biggest hate and fear mongering campaign that America has seen since the reconstruction. The white-sheeted Republicants will begin to cry and monger that America will become a second-class, Nazi, communist, imperialistic, socialist monarchy populated by godless Christians.
Steve Ybarra: The $28 million that the Big O spent on Latinos and Chicanos was well spent and did the job of helping Latinos nationwide figure out that the Democratic Party was indeed on their side. So far, since the new DNC Chair (whoever he is) has been in office, we have seen absolutely no evidence that he gets it.

Now, I may not be around for the blue moon next decade or to watch him get married, have children, graduate from law school, medical school or to become an auto mechanic, but I will resolve this – he will grow up in an America that will not be a country run by Dicks – if I have anything to say about it.

Happy Memorial Day! It is a great time to be an American once again. We have a U.S. President who operates his government not based in fear-mongering. We have a country that will create a generation of the children of a Republican economic depression. This means we will create a nation of people who once [...]
I have concluded that Republicans are, by their very nature, cowards. Let us look at the evidence. First, instead of fighting a war that we really should have been fighting (like addressing real issues about who we are in the world community), we went to a trumped up war based upon lies and innuendo in [...]
For the last several months, I have received phone calls and a zillion emails about the Hillary issue. I supported the move to get the Democratic Party Florida delegation seated before any other Democratic National Committee (DNC) member outside of Florida signed on. I argued that the DNC Rules Committee did not have the authority [...]
There is a great scene in the film Last of the Mohicans, the Daniel Day Lewis version, in which his character challenges the British General and says when the rule of law is ignored and replaced by absolutism then revolution becomes inevitable. Well, more or less that is the message. In the last several months [...]
