The Christian Left Blog has published a recent post entitled The Enemies Within: The 20 Most Dangerous Conservatives And Their Organizations in which Stephen D. Foster Jr. lists and describes the top 20 Americans he believes to be the most influential and dangerous in our country today.

Telling It Like It Really Is…

I recently read an article from a former Republican operative who detailed that the most effective strategy the Republicans have used with a Democrat in the white house was to break government. But they’ve been doing this for many years: spend on war, oil and banking while bankrupting Social Security, Medicare, etc. When Americans think that “big wasteful federal government”… Continue reading

About Sums It Up

Forget the death panels in Democratic health care plan. All of our elderly will never reach old age because the Republicans plan to kill them off before then with their war on the elderly, war on the middle class, and war on the impoverished. The elderly already have to hunt of coupons to be able to afford a little bit… Continue reading

Can Anyone Help Me Out Here??

Since Sarah Palinâ„¢ has filed for a trademark for her name and her daughter’s name with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, does this mean I will have to pay her royalties every time I splash her idiocy across my blog? Will this be retroactive? I mean, will I have to pay for every time I’ve every bemoaned her craziness… Continue reading

This is a must read… Continue reading

Sincerely Sad

These folks don’t seem to understand what’s gone wrong in America. They just know something has gone really wrong. They are trying to make sense of it. I suspect that we all are. I guess Glenn Beck offers some bizarre and simplistic way for them to vent that frustration and to have hope that things will get better if they… Continue reading

Increasing Transparency

I have always argued that, if you are funded with the public‘s money, the public has a right to know what you’re up to with that money.  Transparency in a democracy is essential.  It prevents such hideous excess as the city manager of Bell, CA, making over $1.5 million in publicly funded salary and bonuses, which in my mind is… Continue reading
