Divided States of America

Let us not fool our self, we are a nation divided, with more things dividing us than uniting us, and the recent failure of both House and Senator to agree on a budget and the shut down of the government is but one of the facts that we are a truly divided nation.

The Friday Chat With Duff

I would almost like to ask for a really good psychiatrist, one only slightly crazier than me, to convince me to sit out this election entirely. It has been so many and they make me sick inside. It isn't just the differences in political parties, loose though they seem

Repugnican Americans Make Me Puke! Conserving What?

If America is an example of how “civilized people” select their leadership, I prefer pygmies, aboriginal blues and headhunters in the Amazon, who have been smart enough to avoid our modern two-party political system.

Will The Real President Obama Please, Please Stand Up?

Many of my fellow Obama supporters contend that the president can only do so much, which is absolutely true. But what he can do is use the bully pulpit of the presidency to educate the people, which he’s failing miserably at. The entire GOP agenda is based on flat-out lies, the blatant corruption of facts, and a deviation from reality that’s so severe that even a child could see it if someone would just take the time to explain it. So why isn’t Obama doing that?

A Lesson in Republican Hypocrisy and Distortions

Is the modern Republican Party really “the party of Lincoln,” and responsible for freeing the slaves? I don’t think so. But the GOP regularly, routinely, and with a straight face makes that claim. One Republican recently confronted me and stated the following: "It was Republicans who beat Democrats in the Civil War, thus freeing the slaves. It was Democrats who started the KKK as its military wing to intimidate the (largely black) Republican party who were running the south after the war. Can a leopard change its spots?? Are the Democrats now the party FOR the black people after being against them for so long? So many of you are duped by the Devil's trickery. a few table scraps from massa's table and you run right back to his side. The Democrat is the racist."

Why Do Elections Have Consequences Only When the GOP Wins?

Senators are only elected by their own states and Representatives are only elected by their districts but that didn’t seem to matter as the GOP elected decided they knew what the American people wanted no matter how they voted. Seems a bit odd that this happened and now, it is back to “what the American people wanted” because the local elections put them into seats they are about to take.

The Actual Factuals About the Democratic Loss in the 2010 Election

On the other hand, if the president had walked through the door and kept his mouth shut - as he should have, since the attorney general is suppose to be independent - freeing Attorney General Holder to investigate and then charge Bush and Cheney for lying to congress to take the nation into war; illegally attacking the sovereign state of Iraq; the conflict of interest, misuse of funds and corruption; the torture, killing, and displacement of a million people, among other war crimes, the Republicans would have been so busy trying to cover their butts that they wouldn't have had the time to cause so much trouble.

Mr. President: I Hate to Say I Told You So, but...

This is a reprise of an article that I wrote in August of last year. I'm revisiting it in hope that the "experts" in Washington, D.C. will start to see the light. They are not the political experts in this country - we are. While the so-called political experts are dealing in speculation about what we think, the people don't have to speculate - we KNOW what we think, and the Democratic base has been screaming what we think at the administration for the past two years. But remaining consistent to your beltway arrogance you decided that you knew more about what was on our minds than we did, and this past Tuesday you paid a severe price for that arrogance.

The “Me-First” Attitude of American Politicians is Trashing the U.S. Constitution

What has been proven, however, is that even though the Iranians were considered an enemy of the United States and had held sixty-six Americans hostage for 444 days, Reagan entered into a secret agreement with the Iranians to have Israel ship them military arms, then resupply Israel in return for payment under the table (treason). Reagan needed the money to fund the Contras in a war in Nicaragua in which congress outlawed funding under the Boland Amendment. Reagan also drummed up funding for the Contras by flooding the nation's inner cities with illegal drugs - an act of treachery that thirty years later, the nation is still feeling the negative effects.

Wake up, Mr. President – The GOP has Launched a Jihad...

We all know you're a nice guy, Mr. President, but this is a seminal moment in American history. The Republican Party has revealed themselves to be the American Taliban. They're inciting insurrection, protecting corporate corruption, denying unemployed Americans subsistence, and they threaten to cripple the nation as a whole with their irresponsible use of the filibuster. The Republican agenda is to keep America ignorant and miserable at any cost. So at this point we don't need nice, we don't need bipartisanship, and we don't need a diplomat. What we need at this point in our history is a Commander-in-Chief to lead us in the fight against Republican tyranny. So it's time to suck it up and "fix bayonets," sir.

Democrats: I’ll Resume My Donations When You Resume Fighting Republican Trickery?

Then in 1929 Herbert Hoover came to power. During his administration the stock market crashed, starting the great depression. In spite of the fact that by 1933 the unemployment rate was at 33.3% with 16 million people out of work, the Republican, Hoover, just sat, thinking that the economy would eventually rejuvenate itself. During Hoover's administration 15,000 WWI veterans marched on Washington demanding that they be paid what they were owed by the government. Hoover responded by calling in federal troops to throw these ex-servicemen off government property.

For example: to solve our debt crisis, a bunch of Republican senators suggested a bipartisan debt commission, which is the adult thing to do. But when Obama agreed to it, immediately seven of them said no -- now they're against it. Because Obama has cooties.
