  • Obama State of the Union Address, Occupy Movement and NDAA
    Dear Mr. President Obama, I hope you will address the concerns of the 99 Percent and the Occupy movement in your campaign, and most notably in your upcoming State of the Union message. This could be the kickoff for a surge in vital support from the same class of young and uncommitted voters who backed you in your 2008 presidential (AND Congressional) landslide. The Obama...

  • Fear Itself – GOP Politics in Our Century – OpEd
    Going into the presidential election of 2012, as in all recent elections, the Republican Party has NO positive accomplishments to run on. Eight years of their policies at the start of this 21st century have left America at war, our economy in chaos, our local governments crippled, our elections and Supreme Court and news media corrupt, and our national spirit demoralized. But...

  • On Federal debt deadlock and GOP risk to America
    Op-Ed by Frank Harbinger “The current deadlock in Washington over the expansion of the Federal debt ceiling is a threat to America’s economic stability. It (not the debt, but the deadlock and criminal failure to act) is a severe risk for the world’s economy and a grave financial a danger to countless individual Americans. It is also an unprecedented...

  • Top Ten Ways Libya is NOT Iraq by Juan Cole
    I keep hearing so-called experts say Libya is another Iraq and Afghanistan. But these countries are not the same people or the same struggle. All Muslim struggles are not alike. For once, we have a chance to be on the right side of history. This great essay written by Professor Juan Cole, author of “Engaging the Muslim World,”  lays out 10 ways that our...

  • Speechless at NATO inaction and undecided if leaders incompetent or lying.
    It doesn’t happen very often to me that I’m speechless, but that’s just where I am today. The tweets are flying with news of massacres in several Libyan cities in the 24 hours since the UN Security Council approved a No-Fly Zone along with all means necessary to stop violence against civilians, including military action. The Gaddafi regime keeps claiming...

  • Cold corporate reality almost froze the Arab Spring but UNSC vote for NFZ in Libya keeps it alive
    Everyone was really excited about the “Arab Spring” until it started to happen and then they panicked. OMG – democracy! Arabs can’t handle that. Al Qaeda and Iranian mullahs will rule the oil fields. First there was warm heartfelt sympathy and support. Then cold corporate reality rapidly froze the West’s enthusiasm for change. Change...

  • Vive la France for recognizing Libyan National Council (TNC) while Gaddafi calls Obama’s bluff
    Sarkozy came through in a big way today and recognized the Libyan National Council (known as TNC or PTNC – yes – too confusing) as the legitimate representatives of Free Libya. According to my Twitter sources, France refused to let the Gaddafi delegation enter the country as they had no visas and sent them back to Libya on the same plane. Nice story if...

  • Is Obama waiting til US Nationals out of Libya?
    I see Hillary‘s face. She knows about the evil in the streets of Libya. She wants to send in the Marines. She looks like she’s really holding herself back when speaking as Secretary of State Clinton. It’s wearing on her. Obama probably reflects the same sentiments – he just expresses it differently. And he is President of the United States and might...

    This is comment I sent to Anderson Cooper’s blog. “Am following http://www.livestream.com/libya17feb as well as twitters from Libya. Isn’t anyone in the White House doing the same? I worked hard to elect Barack Obama. I have not agreed with all his actions. But now I am ASHAMED of him. What could it really cost to speak out? We are imprisoned by our own...

  • Email Obama to speak out on Libya
    Email President Obama to speak out on Libya. I know he’s not all powerful, but his silence is damaging. What’s our excuse now? Bahrain is an ally. Has Gaddafi become one too? http://www.emailthepresident.com/

  • Why rural whites still vote GOP & the Tea Party is dangerous
    This is an article I wrote back in November 2008, but as nothing seems to have changed, and in fact might even be accelerating with the rise of the Tea Party crowd, I think it worth dragging out of the archives for another look. Although the demographics of the typical Tea Party can be suburban, rather than rural, they display similar characteristics of “every man...

  • Save the Whales Again!
    A Whale of a Tale. To save Earth from an alien probe, Kirk and his crew go back in time to retrieve the only beings who can communicate with it, humpback whales. Remember that great Star Trek IV movie from 1986? Maybe we need some intervention in 2010 cause it seems like even the Obama people don’t get it. How can that be possible?  I’m sure he has some...
