The result of conservative economic policies

Conservative economic theory asserts that the economy will flourish when wealthy captains of industry are free from the chains of government regulation and taxes. The wealthy will get more wealthy and spread more money around for the rest of us. A rising tide lifts all boats. Unfortunately for the majority of Americans, their theory was wrong: […]

Didn’t they get the memo?

It’s only terrorism if someone else does it: U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton faced sharp rebukes from Pakistani audiences Friday, including one woman who accused the U.S. of conducting ”executions without trial” in aerial drone strikes. Slapping back, Clinton questioned Pakistan’s commitment to fighting terrorists. … During the visit and talks with Pakistani […]

The Honduran Coup

On June 28th, the democratically-elected president of Honduras, Manuel Zelaya, was abducted by the military and deposed to Costa Rica. The perpetrators claimed they removed Zelaya to protect democracy — a near-universal justification for criminal acts on the world stage — but since the action deposed a legitimate government, it easily slides into the category […]

Through a combination of election victories and superdelegate endorsements, Obama has mathematically defeated Hillary Clinton. So why the hell wont she concede? Clinton is either totally […]

Playing for delegates

Marc Ambinder of the Atlantic is reporting that ‘Clinton Campaign staffers and former campaign staffers are being urged by the Clinton campaign’s finance department to turn in their outstanding expense receipts by the end of the week.’ That could be a sign that Hillary has finally given up the ghost. However, the Clinton camp seems […]

Tuesday Blogging – 5/27/08

Had no time to write an article last night. So you’re being treated to my wondermous blogging skillz. 11:15am When I got in my car to go to work this morning, three helicopters flew by. I couldn’t tell if they were from a hospital, news station or military base, but I definitely had this strange […]

Clinton triumphant in Kentucky: And no one cared, Part 2

And no one cared, Part 1 here “I’m going to do everything I can to make sure that anyone who supported me – the 17 million people who have voted for me – understand what a grave error it would be not to vote for Sen. McCain … uh, Sen. Obama, and against Sen. McCain,” […]

And no one cared
