The Slow Motion Lynching of President Barack Obama

I’ve watched liberal and right wing commentators alike blame the president for being lynched. They say “he’s not reaching out enough” or “he’s too cold.” It’s the equivalent of assuming that the black man being beaten by a couple of thug cops must have "done something."I am a white privileged well off sixty-one-year-old former Republican religious right wing activist who changed his mind about religion and politics long ago.  The New York Times profiled my change of heart saying that to my fo … [Read more...]

Dear President Obama,

  Dear President Obama,Congratulations Mr. President. Once again you win over white bigots and other evangelical Tea Party goofs. Everyone has underestimated you since Day 1. Liberals are full of advice and conservatives... well, enough said.The economy came back, the deficit is going down, America is producing more energy than we're importing, gay men and women have been given new dignity and rights, you ended the wars as you said you would, and the Republicans are … [Read more...]

No Place Left to Hide for the None-Too-Bright Delusional White Male Rubes Hijacking the GOP

The 40 Fools in Congress (the extremist driving this shutdown show) might as well be a global militant Islamist organization founded by Osama bin Laden in Peshawar, Pakistan. Speaking as the father of a US Marine who spent 2 tours in Afghanistan hunting for bin Laden, I say to the Tea Party/Congressional 40: Please take off those flag pins! After the faith, credit and economy of the US risks being shattered, then recovers, and this shutdown is all said and done, where do “patriots” like Lim … [Read more...]

Send the Bill For the Shutdown to the Evangelicals

Don't like the shutdown? Send the bill to the evangelicals. People schooled to live in a make-believe magical facts-be-damned world took over the Republican Party. The Tea Party is the pro-life evangelical subculture reborn with a few libertarian nuts thrown in. I’m talking about the bedrock mostly southern and mountain state evangelical conservatives that are anything but conservative. The pro-life, home-school, anti-government far right is the evangelical movement. And it's radically anti A … [Read more...]

The Real Point of President Obama Going to Congress on Syria– Long Term

President Obama has used the Syria gas attack to accomplish something stunning: He's deliberately turned back the clock on presidential military intervention prerogatives to the World War Two paradigm. Whatever happens in Congress now the president has made it much harder for future presidents to pull a George W. Bush stunt and take America into dumb wars.From now on there's a twenty first century template that will be applied by the nation when we talk war: ask Congress for permission to … [Read more...]

White, “Christian” and Treasonous: Who Will They Kill?

The battle over gun control has exposed a truth the mainstream media is apparently too shy to mention: A bunch of far right white mostly southern paranoid extremists are preparing for armed revolution and apocalypse. They speak treason: literally.They are preparing to "defend" America from America with arsenals of weapons and stockpiles of ammunition. Their "enemy" is everyone in America not like them.They think the world is ending and/or that the government is out to get them. That … [Read more...]
