Hillary Clinton is the most qualified to head the Evil Empire

I’ve run for political office a few times myself, and even though I have always met constitutional qualifications, I always have been told that I was not “qualified.” Continue reading

End poverty in California

California Governor Jerry Brown is going around the world with one simple, yet simply wrong message, “California is Back.” The problems with this statement is that it is false and that Jerry Brown is obviously out of touch with the people of the state that he “governs.” Continue reading

Peace is not for wimps

I am on an overseas trip to Ireland, Northern Ireland, and Sweden invited by the Free the Cuban Five Committees of Ireland and Sweden. On days two and three of the trip, I was very excited to go to Northern Ireland as I have never been there before and there is, of course, a deep tradition of struggle and a hard, hard won peace–with reconciliation being an ongoing process.

Hands off Venezuela!

We reject United States sanctions against Venezuela

On Tuesday, May 24, 2011, the United States Department of State unilaterally imposed sanctions against Venezuela’s state-owned oil company, Petróleos de Venezuela, S.A.

Wisconsin is also trying to severely limit collective bargaining for state workers, which, of course would further undermine labor. Continue reading

Yesterday, Feb 16, 2011, the Senate approved an extension of the treasonous USA PATRIOT ACT, following the lead of the House of Representatives. Continue reading

Once upon a time in the Evil Empire

Once upon a time in the Evil Empire, there rose to the Most Powerful Office in the Land, a very stupidly evil man named, George Walker Bush (the III George of the Empire). Continue reading

Stuck in stage two

In 1969, Swiss psychiatrist Elisabeth Kubler-Ross published a groundbreaking book, On Death and Dying. The five stages of grief listed above are called the Kubler-Ross Model and were originally designated for people who were diagnosed with a terminal illness but were extended to anyone who has suffered a major loss such as losing a limb, losing freedom, or a death of a close loved one.
