When we left the conversation between former presidents George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, they were commenting on a condolence letter regarding the demise of the United States of America, as written by today’s American Insurgents, (like our founding fathers) today known as Progressive Americans. The two great men have returned to the subject of the […]
Dear Founding Fathers: We extend our deepest condolences, on the passing of our young and formerly healthy democratic nation, the United States of America. You fought so hard to construct a failsafe and immune Constitution, one that could not only stand the test of time, but could also survive a short-term virulent attack of an […]
by Linda Milazzo — Some men sacrificed their sons for their nation. George Herbert Walker Bush sacrificed his nation for his son.
By Mary Lyon — Is John McCain in a meltdown? Can this campaign be saved? Can the dots remain unconnected? I don’t know about the first two, other than just observing from the sidelines. But the third one I can take a crack at. I’ll try to be brief. After all, neither you nor I […]
Yesterday on CNN’s Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, Democratic Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, responded to a viewer who asked why she took the impeachment of George W. Bush off the table.

I argued that the DNC Rules Committee did not have the authority […]

by Steven Conn — As he refines his economic message on the campaign trail this summer, Republican John McCain has made it clear that, previous positions notwithstanding, he has now embraced the Republican economic orthodoxy: eliminate regulation, cut taxes on corporations and the wealthy, and the free and unfettered market will take care of everything.
The Fourth of July is a date that historically brings about much confliction in the African American community. Never one to miss a great party, black people spend considerable money on bar-b-ques and fireworks. And you see as many American flags hanging on the porches of black homes as any other. Why? Because as Langston […]
A malevolent cloud is sweeping across America tonight. It has permeated the air with betrayal and cowardice. Around the District of Columbia, our putative leaders are breathing in the foul stench of capitulation and finding it to not be as nauseating as they imagined it would be.
I’ve been watching a parade of slapstick worthy of the Keystone Kops lately, but it’s not on Vintage Movie Night — it’s in Washington DC. Hapless doesn’t even begin to describe it.
Too often in recent discussions I’ve seen us focus on the “cult of personality” and avoid the core of the progressive movement—“policy.”
