Poem: Did he? Did we?

I can’t believe he just said that immigrants are rapists. He’s running to be the president of the United States of America – a nation of immigrants. Did he really say that? Does he mean that?

Rightblogger at World Net Daily seeks to delegitimize Mizzou protesters

This is getting beyond cliche. The World Net Daily, a rabid anti-progressive dumping ground for the ignorant class is doing its best to delegitimize the Mizzou protesters by, you guessed it, calling them liars. Douglas Ernst, a former employee of Sun Myung Moon’s Washington Times, wrote that Mizzou student protesters Payton Head and Jonathan Butler… Read more »

Rightbloggers, and even Dave Weigel, work to delegitimize black student protestors

I couldn’t believe it when I woke up this morning and saw the Washington Post’s Dave Weigel joining in on the delegitimize-black-student protesters tip.

Interest Rates Low Because of Impending Doom, or the New Normal

I read this story today in the Huffington Post. The point of the story was that the Federal Reserve is keeping interest rates low because they can see impending economic doom in our future. Reporter Daniel Marans includes a lot of data and graphs and quotes, but it comes across as pseudo-economics. So I wondered… Read more »

Can Sanders Really Win?

I like Bernie Sanders. I think he would make an amazing president. If he could truly lead this nation, we could do so much to move this nation forward.
