President Barack Obama spoke to a group of business executives and elected officials before the House voted on the highly anticipated Stimulus Bill which contains an $825 billion Stimulus Plan. The President noted that seven of the largest corporations in the United States announced, this week, that they are making job cuts. Earlier, in a […]
Throughout the primary and election campaign, I’ve received lots of smear-mail about Barack Obama. Much of it includes knowingly false statements about him being a Muslim meaning, whether the smear-mail says it openly or not, that he is one step removed from the 19 evil men who crashed planes into the World Trade Center, the […]
I take back everything negative I ever said about Ellen DeGeneres (and it hasn’t been much; we love Ellen in our family). The comedian and talk show host — and my son’s hero — is shelling out big bucks of her own to fight Proposition 8, the evil California ballot measure that would reverse marriage […]
Much ado has been made over Georgia Congressman John Lewis’ statement about the nasty turn the Presidential campaign took at Republican rallies. From Palin saying Obama was “pallin’ around with domestic terrorists, to Republican rally supporters calling the Democratic nominee “an Arab,” “a terrorist,” and calling for Obama’s death, shouting out, “Kill him!”, the rhetoric […]
As usual, post-debate bloviating wandered aimlessly through the night with assessments ranging from “she did better than we thought she would,” which is what parents say when their kid doesn’t strike out at a Little League game, to the thoroughly puzzling “America must be surprised.”
Living in the Eastern Time zone, it was well after midnight before I got to bed after watching the debate and flipping the dial to see what the Commentariat would pronounce as post-debate truth, wisdom, justice and The American Way.
“In the future days which we seek to make secure, we look forward to a world founded upon four essential human freedoms. “The first is freedom of speech and expression. … “The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his own way. … “The third is freedom from want. … “The fourth […]
Only an American would visit a foreign country and even think of doing what three Yanks just did to me. Here’s the skinny.
The Presidency aspirations of Barack Obama have caused a renewed discussion on race in America. The prospect of a black President has cast America in a different light throughout the world — as demonstrated by Obama’s highly successful trip to the Middle East and Europe last week.
By Herb Engstrom — The main reason that I have supported Barack Obama since the declaration of his candidacy is that I feel he was the candidate that could improve the world’s image of America most rapidly. Here I have translated a relevant article that appeared last Friday in France’s “newspaper of record,” Le Monde.”
There he goes again, Congressman Dennis Kucinich, reading into the Congressional record just 35 of the reasons why this Congress should be impeaching this sitting president and his VP. With diminutive stature but steely resolve, Kucinich forcefully takes his place alongside the earlier patriots who stood up to executive abuse, the “high crimes and misdemeanors,” […]
The Night of Terror at Occoquan Warehouse is the story of our grandmothers, and great-grandmothers and their fight to win the right to vote. This is what they lived only 90 years ago. It was not until 1920 that women were granted the right to go to the polls and vote in the United States. […]
Scott McClellan’s new confessional that’s pointed the finger at Bush administration figures in the Valerie Plame scandal reminds me of something my husband got in the mail, in the autumn of 1983. We called it the “I Didn’t Do It” letter. It arrived unexpectedly one afternoon from the offices of gold trader Alan Saxon, the […]
