Condoleezza Rice??

What ever happened to her "tell all" book "I slept with the President", detailing how they both would frequently fall asleep in Cabinet meetings??

WANDERINGS IN THE POLITICAL LABYRINTH

I cried when Obama was elected- out of joy and relief. No, I am not ashamed of those emotions- for, at the time, it was like I was let out of a political prison as I felt this country was sinking deeper and deeper into a strange, repressive tyranny.

No, I am not ashamed- and I would vote for Obama again, I suppose- if the circumstances were capable of being replayed- but not for the same reasons. It would be to vote for, quoting Russell Crowe as Captain Jack Aubrey- to vote for 'the lesser of two weevils.'

John Lott's lack of credibility

Didn't John Lott hide behind a pseudonym of Mary Rosh? Reason.com ran an article on this in May 2003 as well as on Lott's questionable studies

Lifted Ban on Biotech Alfalfa

This weeks Supreme Court decision to lift the ban on Monsanto’s GMO round Up Ready Alfalfa hands Monsanto the license to own yet one more piece of the food chain.

Federal Ruling on Drilling Ban

If Obama declares a national emergency can he over-ride the federal ruling to lift the ban? If not, is there anything else he can do?

Getting out there. Getting Active.

Hi guys, This is my first blog post here, and I just wanted to share what I've been doing lately to follow through on Thom's call to Get Out There and Get Active.

The good ol' days

I wax nostalgic for the good ol' days, when people robbed banks instead of the other way around.

Don't Allow Corporations To Decide American Elections!

DON'T ALLOW CORPORATIONS TO DECIDE AMERICAN ELECTIONS

When Roberts and his merry band of judges, were deciding the fate of America in the Citizens United v. FEC case,

Time to Do Better

It is time, my fellow liberals and progressives and radicals – time for us to do better. Yes, I know, most of us are already doing everything we can, and we’re not doing badly. I’m not writing to criticize anyone, any effort.

I am here to cheerlead for the extra effort that we will need to get us to the next levels of our evolution, of our revolutions. What can I be doing to help you get better? What can you be doing to help me get better? It’s time, it is time for us to do better.

A Capital Idea Part 12: Money as a Tool for Exploiting Others

I will begin discussing the history of money now. Before I get more deeply into the topic, and do the requisite research, I wish to discuss the issue of ruling versus servant classes, and the role of money in this phenomenon.

ANTS

If you like reading about ants and comparing them politically to people, read Reggie Rivers' (former Denver Bronco) latest book "The Colony".

Did you get to check out MAT for your shoulder?

I hope this moment of change in Generals proves to be a start to more shake ups in the administration and getting things done!

Almost done with your book, Screwed! Good....did you give one to our elected officials!???

Thom's talk on the Fairness Doctrine brings the personal to mind

When my mother, a new-deal Democrat turned living-on-Social-Security conservative in her old age, was still alive, I understood my visits to her to be an interruption in her addiction to Rush Limbaugh. My mother’s world-view had shifted far from the one she had back when she enlightened me in the 1950’s about the errors of the McCarthy hearings, loyalty oaths and the like.

The Real Carbon “Monster” Revealed

Another day, another stupid assault on the truth by the fossil fuel industry and its paid lackeys. In a recent op-ed for the New York Post, Tom Harris, the executive director of the so-called International Climate Science Coalition -- an organization that’s funded, in part, by the fossil fuel industry -- blasted Leonardo DiCaprio for his work on “Carbon,” a new documentary on climate change that I helped write and present.
