Berry Craig: We are getting closer to that “more perfect union” the constitution was supposed to make us. Far more people enjoy “the blessings of liberty” cited in our national charter than they did in Washington’s day.
Jessie Daniels: Following Obama’s re-election, white people who rooted for the other guy took to various forms of digital media and unleashed their disappointment. Some white folks went a good deal farther than disappointment into overt racism.
Berry Craig: Ryan is a Social Darwinist of the if-you’re-poor-it’s-your-own-fault persuasion and a disciple of the greed-is-good gospel of Ayn Rand. He hates labor unions, to boot.
Berry Craig’s “Birtherism Bites Back: Samuel D. Burchard and Donald Trump” led the pack this time, followed by Dick & Sharon’s look at the 20=year anniversary of the LA Riots.
Berry Craig: Birtherism is cool with a lot of tea party tilting Republican white folks who still aren’t that cool with Romney. Hence, he hasn’t flat told Donald Trump to clam up.
Berry Craig: This old reporter turned history teacher finds anonymous bloggers of any political persuasion eminently ignorable. In my book, no name equals no credibility.
Walter Brasch: With all the distortions by the lyin’ liberal left-wing, it can get confusing. But, it’s really simple. A person is an egg that has just been fertilized by a sperm. We call this young person a Zygote.
Berry Craig: The hysteria about Obama, although some of it may be related to philosophical objections to central authority, is largely rooted in race.
Berry Craig: With Wisconsin Governor Walker’s blessing, Republican lawmakers are ramming home a bill that requires voters to show photo ID at the polls. Of course, the idea is to decrease the Democratic vote.
Joseph Palermo: The Republican House members who voted for Paul Ryan’s Ayn Rand wet-dream budget are apparently getting an earful from their constituents.
Berry Craig: Like Reagan, Tea Party candidates are delivering what Tea Partiers want: simple answers to complex issues. Never mind that there never have been simple answers to complex issues.
David Love: The Tea Party is not merely a subsidiary of the GOP. It is the GOP. The Tea Party and the Republican Party are one and the same. The Tea Party is the base, and yet the base is all that is left, due to the years of Lee Atwater’s race baiting that drove away all the people who are free from mental defect.
Wayne Williams: Now, if you can’t face the truth of living in the present and come to the table rather than be the party of no and hate, the rest of us are going to move forward and do it without out you.
