Proof:  Republicans Incapable Of Leading

Barely starting their majority rule in this new Congress, the Republicans, not satisfied with a visionless, utterly barren domestic policy are now usurping the Constitutional powers of the Executive branch in foreign affairs/policy.

Republicans Reintroduce the Medieval Era to America

As their first initiative in 2015, the RNC has banned all remnants of the Enlightenment and declared the USA a collection of feudal fiefs. Let’s review the similarities of the middle ages to our contemporary America.

Bulletin:  U.S. Exempts Itself Against Torture Law

With the release of the long awaited report on the use of torture during the Bush/Cheney reign of terror following 9-11, public statements by current elected federal officials and many serving with Bush/Cheney, the United States of America appears to have exempted itself from all domestic and international law prohibiting torture.

The DNC Needs A Dean Redux

The DNC Needs A Dean Redux

A couple of commentaries appeared in the media this week from two divergent factions in the party, both in agreement.  Governor Terry McAuliffe and Howard Dean both went public with rather extensive statements that the DNC needs rebuilding.  We must have messaging on our accomplishments and what we stand for.

McAuliffe spoke quite critically of the failure of our National Party to address the challenges of our struggling middle class and the need for major economic reforms.  This from a guy who I always viewed as a brilliant fund raiser but shallow thinker.   He did leave our party in great financial shape. Maybe I was wrong about the shallowness.

I think he really understands the failed leadership of our Party here in a time of our most desperate need for economic reform.  He also spoke of our President’s brilliant record on so many fronts which were ignored by the DNC’s non-existent messaging program.

Adding insult to injury, the clueless  but very well insured Democratic leader Chuck Schumer came this week with absurd commentary that it was a huge mistake for Congressional Democrats to undertake healthcare reform  in Obama’s first term.  In a clearly uncoordinated messaging effort of his own without collaboration with the White House or DNC, he said we should have focused on the economy and not done the Affordable Care Act.  Is our Federal Government a one trick pony, incapable of multi-tasking?

Welcome. Come out of the shadows now, thanks to a courageous President Obama. I’m sorry this has taken so long but there are a few nativists here who have made the process of legalizing your residency difficult. Let’s forgive and ignore them.

Democrats: Look What Two Parties By And For The Rich Got Us.

Democrats: Look What Two Parties By And For The Rich Got Us.

Hey DNC and State Party Chairs: Look at our reality. We’ve got the Presidency for two more years; the Repugnant party has both houses and the Supreme Court. What’s more, they’ve got 68 out of 98 partisan state legislatures and 31 governorships. We, the party “of the people” came up just a bit short but your reaction seems just a bit muted given these dire circumstances.

Opposing BFD China Climate Deal?  Treason.

For years Republicans have held China’s resistance to a carbon reduction treaty as a reason to oppose President Obama’s efforts to address the climate crisis here. So, he cuts an amazing deal with China and what are Republicans doing? Opposing it. This is nothing short of treason.

America’s Third World Voting Systems A Disgrace

America’s Third World Voting Systems A Disgrace

Voting across the country is in chaos. Our state by state patchwork of voting rules, laws, ID’s, machines, processes, poll worker training and counting can only be described as third world. I believe these systemic flaws contribute to the national malaise about voting participation. For many it is a pain in the butt. Others, a huge inconvenience. For many a discouraging experience.

Your Vote Should Be For The Party.

I argue that when you vote, your vote should be for the Party. I do not buy the concept “I vote for the candidate, not the Party”. Sorry, but it is not unsophisticated or unthinking to vote a “straight ticket” in the case of partisan elections.

Combating The National Republican Fear Campaign?

It is well understood by communications experts that fear is an extremely powerful emotion to reverse. The RNC is executing a powerful national campaign of fear, based mostly on ISIL and Ebola. It is grounded in their national and local messaging strategy that government doesn’t work, especially an Obama/Pelosi government.

Middle East Bloodbath: DeJavu All Over Again

Overrunning towns, pillaging, plundering, setting fire, torture, burning at the stake, rape, burning children alive, enslaving, beheadings, sacking places of worship, taking body parts for trophies, destroying libraries, cannibalism, crucifixions, opening bodies for swallowed treasure. A special place in paradise for warriors. Justice for infidels. Slaughter of their own. Robbing and keeping the riches.

Delaware Sends Three Busloads To Climate March

The First State sent three busloads of concerned citizens to the September 21 massive and largely media-ignored Climate March in New York City. Reports claimed 400,000 marchers and I believe them, given the shoulder to shoulder shuffle we joyfully experienced on Sunday at Central Park Avenue.

Apocalypse: From U.S.Petro Or ISIL?

Ok, then. From the President’s speech we’re sort of at war with ISIL? Not exactly war, according to John Kerry, but sorta. Let’s just call it large scale counter terrorism, he says. More like humanitarian bombings.
