Lowest Turnout since 1942

Where were the gen-xers and millenials? The silents turned out in droves while the occupiers stayed home thus leading to the GOP landslide. It smacks of the younger generations being battered into passivity.

Moyers, Lessig, Teachout

Obama is the Middling Man. Just give him two strong views from left and right he'll get right in between them!

This seems to be the Obama playbook. And while it has served him well in some areas, in others it has clearly led him astray.

Why Senate Republicans Shouldn't Buy New Curtains

The MSM has been describing this year's election as a "tsunami" or a "tidal wave" or a "shellacing" but that's just ratings hyperbole. Democrats are notoriously absent during midterms and of the thirty six Senate seats up for re-election in 2014 twenty one were Democratic and only fifteen Republican and the map favored red. In 2016, a presidential year, only ten Democratic Senate seats are up for re-election and twenty four Republican seats with many of those Republican seats i

"Grand Capitulation" - The Democratic Cave-In on KXL!

Word is coming out today that the Lame Duck Senate Democrats are going to hold a vote on the KXL Pipeline as early as next week. http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/senate-vote-keystone-pipeline.

Strategies To Reverse Free Trade

Can a wedge issue be used to roll back free trade?

The devastation to our economy and the threats to our sovereignty and even security caused by so-called free trade should be obvious. Since 2000, when Clinton pushed for and Congress (mostly GOPers) voted for permanent normal trade relations with China, China's been able to leverage its oversupply of cheap labor to extract investments and technology transfers from the west allowing the Chinese economy to leapfrog itself into the 21st century.

Dear DNC: A Breakup Letter

The DNC at the national level is broken. Democrats in office are, by-and-large, broken. There are 12 things that, when put together, demonstrate a profound lack of compitency. And with that so goes my support for the Democratic Party even at my state level where the same incompitence reigns.

The EPA Regulating Mud Puddles?

I'm watching Thom's "The Big Picture" Lone Liberal Rumble segment as I type and one of his conservative guests, notorious anti-gay political operative Jennifer Kerns, seriously claimed on the show that the EPA wants to regulate ponds as small as a mud puddle. I challenge Kerns, or any other conservative, to provide proof of the claim. She made some other ridiculous remarks such as repeating Ted Cruz's meaningless tweet suggesting that Obama's plan to preserve net neutr

The world we're leaving for today's teens...
