    If Only They Weren't Full Of Hate

    A majority of Muslims voted for George W. Bush in the 2000 election. This shouldn't be shocking because despite our close ties to Israel, on social issues, Islam is a natural fit for the conservative philosophy.  But once again, conservatives manage to blow it.  While...

    How I See America

    Ten years ago today, America was attacked by a ruthless coward. 19 men hijacked 4 planes and killed over 3,000 people, not all of them Americans. Today we commemorate that event. There are memorial services being held, since today is Sunday, churches all across the world will...

    Why? Why Am I A Liberal? Why Am I Not The Least Bit Sorry For It?

    There are numerous reasons for it. First of all, I like to **** off arrogant people. And I love to rankle the emotions of the TEA party, a/k/a teabaggers. Did you see Ted Cruz make a complete fool out of himself for 21 hours? Green Eggs and Ham was hilarious when Cruz was...

    Why We Need Better Food Standards In The Us

    The business friendly Republicans fight food standards as “unnecessary and restrictive government interference” – a strain on the “free market”. As a result, things you wouldn’t begin to imagine end up in our food. This article from Alternet gives some pretty...

    I Took My Lead From Sir Churchill

    I had always been liberal, in spite of being raised and living most of my life in a red state. After several classes in school and church, I realized my politics were far different from most. After finding out about the usual quips of Winston Churchill, especially the exchanges...

    My Experience With Both Sides

    A few weeks ago there were rally's being held not far from me. One was a democratic rally, the other a Tea Party rally. I had not heard anything about the Tea Party except what I have seen on TV, and we all know how reliable THAT is. So, I decided to go to both on separate...

    More Or Less

    I am more of a socialist so I am to the left of liberals but here in america a liberal is the best I can hope for in a politician. Now these days what qualify as a liberal is what ever republicans are opposed to even if it is also conservative.
