2008 Presidential Debates resemble a Frenzy of Biblical Stupidity - June 6, 2007
What happened to the separation of church and state? The latest Presidential debates are obsessed with Religion. Why, and is this good or bad?

Halliburton has been accused of cheating the government. October 25, 2006
The inspector general's office overseeing spending in Iraq found that Halliburton is over charging the government - that is the American People. Our Vice President continues to have a deferred interest in this no bid contract. What does that say about our administration?

The Sky is Falling...The Sky is Falling! This End Time Retoric is A bunch of Chicken Little Crap! July 24, 2006
When are people going to realize that this 'Chicken Little' politics/theology is nuts! The War mongering media frenzy feeds this hurtful story line. In two weeks nothing else even makes news. Feeding the war has become the objective instead of ending it. Import issues and events, come and go unreported as the world spirals down the path of stupidity.

Back to Work! July 17, 2006
I've been away on vacation, and while I was off resting, the world seems to have gone crazier. It's Monday, the mail is piled up, the Middle East is blowing up, and while I was resting, the world has gone mad...business as usual.

A Congress of Greed and Indifference! July 5, 2006
What does it say about our elected officials when they vote themselves another pay raise while rejecting an increase in the minimum wage? What does it say about us if we let it stand?

Gingrich in 08? GIVE ME A BREAK! June 13, 2006
He paid $300,000 in connection with charges of Perjury, Misconduct and Major Ethics Violations. He was forced to step down as Speaker of the House, and now he might run for president. What is this country coming to?

Godless, Heartless, The 9-11 Cover-up and Hate Mongers - June 12, 2006
What do a heartless right wing author and a terrorist have in common? 9-11 and hate.

RFID - Radio Frequency Identification of Your Stuff! May 18, 2006
Radio Frequency Identification can tell major retailers and the government the who, what, when, where of every item they buy or sell. How can this impact you?

Phone tapping regular Americans? What the heck is this President doing? May12, 2006
Be afraid, be very afraid! This perverted administration is a peeping Tom out of control! President Bush could be the single biggest threat to the American People.

Finally An Immigration Bill. March 28, 2006
The bickering continues, but on the surface the compromise on an immigration bill shows some real promise!

The Illegal Invasion of Iraq was a crime and Bush is the criminal! March 27, 2006
Producing fake evidence to provoke an attack on a foreign country or planning to assassinate a head of state to overthrow his government is sleazy and criminal. What kind of man asks the favor of a foreign government to be an accomplice in such criminal behavior? What message are the United States and Great Britain sending to the world?

UAE Take Over of East Coast Seaports Part 3. March 3, 2006
The impending take over of six major United States Seaports is freaking people out. Here in New York, Congressman, Senators, the International Longshoreman's Association, the United States Coast Guard and civilians alike have expressed serious concern. Recent polls indicate that fifty eight percent of the country is opposed to the ports deal.

Part 3 SPEAK OUT! Peace activists, Citizens, are being jailed for non-violent acts of civil disobedience. Friday February 3, 2006
The State Of The Union is pretty apparent. A mother and a congressman's wife are removed from the people's house and one is arrested. Four peace activists are jailed on misdemeanor charges for an act of non-violent civil disobedience in 2003. After a jury voted 9-3 for acquittal they were later tried in Federal Court. Not since since the late sixties and early seventies has the government resorted to this type of behavior, suppression, and censorship. SPEAK OUT!

Part 2 SPEAK OUT! Peace activists, Citizens, are being jailed for non-violent acts of civil disobedience. Thursday February 2, 2006
The State Of The Union is pretty apparent. A mother and a congressman's wife are removed from the people's house and one is arrested. Four peace activists are jailed on misdemeanor charges for an act of non-violent civil disobedience in 2003. After a jury voted 9-3 for acquittal they were later tried in Federal Court.

Part 1 SPEAK OUT! Peace activists, Citizens, are being jailed for non-violent acts of civil disobedience. Wednesday February 1, 2006

Four peace activists are jailed on misdemeanor charges for an act of non-violent civil disobedience in 2003. After a jury voted 9-3 for acquittal they were later tried in Federal Court.

Support Science - VOTE for Change! January 31, 2006
Support Science and the free exchange of information! This year there are 33 Senate seats up for re-election. We need to give them all the boot, and institute some term limits because those entrusted to be our stand-ins are not doing their job. Our top Scientists are being threatened and censored, our liberties are under attack and these "gentlemen and women" are patting each other on the back while our rights are being taken away.

WAKE UP AMERICA! The Whitehouse is CENSORSING our Scientists! January 30, 2006
Dr. James E. Hansen, the Director of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York has been threatened and is being censored by the Bush Administration. He told a University of Iowa audience 'In my more than three decades in government, I have never seen anything approaching the degree to which information flow from scientists to the public has been screened and controlled as it is now.'

Enron and the Bush Connection, it is a lot more involved than you think. January 25, 2006
Enron, Kenneth Lay and George Bush both Junior and Senior have a very close friendship with many mutual business dealings. Finally after over 4 years, the Enron trial begins. It will either be a rude awakening to America of the extent of corruption in our government, or it will be swept under the rug by the enormouns money and power of the Bush Dynasty.

What happened to the Fourth Amendment? January 23, 2006
Even though we have specific rights detailed by the Fourth Amendment of the Bill of Rights, this Administration thinks it is OK to eavesdrop on the American Public. The balance of power has become creepy and weird. The government has taken the position that with no meaningful judicial review any American citizen alleged to be an Enemy Combatant could be detained indefinitely without charges or council on the government's say so. First Yahoo, then Google and your international phone calls then your email and local phone calls. Where does it end?

Personal Best.: Are we getting that from the Senate or Judge Alito? January 12, 2006
Doing your 'Personal Best' is so important. I am always amazed by how many people are willing to do an adequate job; not a good job, not a bad job just an adequate job. It is frustrating on a personal level but when I see it happening in our government I really get discouraged. We have entrusted our politicians with great power and great responsibility and in such matters as the confirmation of Judge Alito I expect one hundred and ten percent from our representatives!

Capital Punishment Part 2 Look at the Social commentary underlying crime. December 14, 2005
In a country where war is the answer to solving the world's problems. The model, the expectation is for society to behave as the government behaves. The state sanctioned punishment for misbehavior is too easily violence and death. Do we bring further horror upon our selves by taking a life as punishment? We have a responsibility to the people of this country to be good role models. Our own government condemns other governments for what we do ourselves. What does that say about our society?

Is Capital Punishment Federal Government Sanctioned Killing? December 13, 2005
The notorious Stanley "Tookie" Williams was executed by lethal injection this week. We condemn the public hangings in Riyadh but are we any better. Can taking a life in anger and vengeance alleviate the pain, loss, suffering and anguish of losing a loved one. Is killing a relief of bereavement or does it create more horror. "Thou shalt not kill" so many laws are built on the tenants of faith, but how does it work that the punishment for killing is killing? It hasn't worked in over 2000 years so why would it start working now? Is there a better way?

HR 2631 is a bill called the Religious Freedom Peace Tax Fund. December 12, 2005
The Religious Freedom Peace Tax Fund has been proposed to allow for those who are conscientiously opposed to participation in war to allow for proper social contribution without supporting the war machine. Our military budget out spends every other country by more than three hundred seventy billion dollars. If we were to apply one third of the military budget to developing energy independence imagine how quickly we can have alternatives that would no longer require us to be in someone else's backyard and someone else's business.

Who is broadcasting to our troops, and what is the ADF connection? December 6, 2005
After yesterday's podcast I started to look into the ADF and I found out some really interesting things. The ADF is a huge sponsor of Rush Limbaugh and spends millions to make sure that Liberal viewpoints like that of Ed Schultz are not heard by our troops. Why, and how can the DOD allow this to go on with our tax dollars? Where is the separation of church and state?

Propaganda, a weapon of war but probably safer than most. December 2, 2005
People have used propaganda since the beginning of time. Win over the hearts and minds of the people and you will win the war. Any other victory is an empty victory and can never be sustained. Propaganda requires all kinds of people to be willing to be involved in the game. Everyone puts their little spin on the story. Propaganda or opinion?

This country was built by immigrants. We need a policy! November 29, 2005
This country was built by immigrants. People want to come here and make a better life. That is a compliment, not a detriment. What we need to figure out is how to handle the documentation.

Five Billion Six Hundred Million dollars on an Anthrax Vaccine. Why? November 21, 2005
Eighty four percent of those receiving the Anthrax Vaccine have had adverse reactions. The FDA has not approved this as an authorized vaccine, yet we are spending 5.6 billion dollars on it's manufacturer. Military personnel have been refusing to take the vaccine because of the side effects, even at the risk of court martial. What does that say to you?

The Patriot Act Part 2 Who is flying the Spaceship? November 18, 2005
Continued from November 17, 2005. Who is flying the spaceship? This government is a democracy, by and for the people. When the people no longer have checks and balances to keep the Executive and Judicial Branches in order, we are all at risk for losing our freedom. Even in a perfect world, how safe can anyone really be?

The Patriot Act Part 1 How much will you give up for Safety? November 17, 2005
What are you willing to give up for your freedom? Living in a free society comes with some benefits and some risks. How do you define terrorism, and how does our government define terrorism? Who is keeping track of the secret courts, the wire taps, the background checks, bank and phone survelience. When is safety just too costly? Even in a perfect world you can't protect against everything. The Patriot Act has extended the powers of the Executive and Judicial branches WAY beyond what seems appropriate in the name of safety and our Civil Rights are at risk.

Oil Companies and Foreign Governments Twist the American People, squeezing the market and ripping us off. November 10, 2005
Thirty Three billion dollars in profits in one quarter. Consumers in the United States are stuck with a system that belongs in a museum. Fossil fuels, oil and natural gas are the life blood of the US economy. We are being held hostage by big Oil companies, and radical foreign governments. This is a National Security Issue.

Judge Samuel Alito Not Supreme Court Material. November 4, 2005
Judge Samuel Alito, the most recent nominee to the Supreme Court is another really strange choice. I wonder if The White House has been doing their homework. It has been reported that he refused to recuse himself from two cases in which he had personal, financial conflicts of interest. Does that really show just prudence? Is this really befitting of a Supreme Court Justice?

Unity is written into the currency of our Country. November 3, 2005
The concept of Unity is built into our currency. E pluribus unum is written on every dollar, every coin, it is the most common symbol of unity in our daily lives. We are One. The founding fathers got it, they understood, and wrote their version of democracy and social responsibility based on Unity based on the concept of understanding that we are all one people.

KIA in Iraq, Over 2000 and counting. October 28, 2005
Killed In Action over 2000 and counting. The headlines read "Milestone in Iraq, 2000 dead". The numbers are so deceiving. What about the 7800 wounded and sent home or the 8500 wounded and sent back in? We need to support our men and women over there and make sure our government isn't minimizing their loss. This is a gigagantic quagmire, the violence is escalating, what is the exit stragegy?

Harriet Miers, you're out-a-here! October 27, 2005
Harriet Miers withdrew this morning as a nominee for the Supreme Court, and I think that is a very good thing. The fact that she was unwilling to be open and let Americans know who she is and what she is about is not in the best interest of this country. This is a government of the people and by the people, and if you are not willing to tell us who you are you just don't belong in that position.

Poverty - Can it be Eradicated by Empowering Women? Part 1. October 20, 2005
Scientific American's September 2005 Special Issue has an amazing article by Jeffrey Sachs, the Director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University and a member of the United Nations Millennium Project. This Project's goal is to half extreme poverty by the year 2015...

The Army is having recruiting troubles. Lowering standards is not a good 'Plan B'. October 11, 2005
It has been reported that the talk around the Pentagon and in the halls of Congress is 'What to do about the Army's low enlistment figures for 2005?'. It seems that this year's recruiting shortfall is in the range of 7,000 to 10,000 soldiers. In response they have resorted to some very unusual and quite frankly stupid measures to fill their ranks with bodies.

Columbus was a creep! Why did we give him a Federal Holiday? October 10, 2005
Today is Columbus Day. Our Nation's Capital, the District of Columbia, was named for Columbus. Unfortunately, although our children's school books glorify him as the one who discovered America, he was far from a hero. Columbus was actually a creep. A slave trader and murderous conquer. Why would this government honor him with a Federal Holiday? Surely there are many throughout history who deserve this recognition. He is not one of those persons.

In Afghanistan 25 percent of Parliament seats are reserved for women. Why not in USA? October 7, 2005
Twenty Seven Year old Malalai Joya was elected to Parliament in Afghanistan. She is an outspoken opponent of the powerful Warlords in that country. As we, the US continue to assist this country to build a democratic government, we have helped them write into their official documentation a requirement that 25 percent of the parliamentary seats will be reserved for women. Why not here in the USA?

The Pledge of Allegiance - Who needs it? September 15, 2005
I pledge allegiance to the flag. Today I read that again someone is sueing in the supreme court about the constitutionality of the Pledge in the public schools. I don't have a problem with the under God part but the part about "to the republic for which it stands", I wonder about that. What exacty does it stand for?

John Roberts for Chief Justice? Why? September 14, 2005
John Roberts is clearly a very learned man but as for Chief Justice of the supreme court, I don't think he has a real grasp on what kind of contribution women make to this society.

Politics and Religion - The two No No's we really need to talk about. September 7, 2005
Religion and Politics, people say if you want to get along you should never talk about those two things. But I think those are precisely the two things we need to talk about. Something that worked 2000 years ago is just not really relevant or useful today. In this age of internet and access connecting is easy. This is a global community outside of politics and religion. We need to talk about this stuff, dialog .

Hurricane Katrina, They need our help now. September 5, 2005
This situation is desperate. It's been 5 days and 50,000 people are still stranded on rooftops starving. Thousands are dying of thirst in waist deep water. People are literally dying where they sit waiting for this government to help them, but where is our government? These are working people, taxpayers, just like you and me, and they need HELP desperately! Why has it taken this government 5 days to get to Louisiana? We can get aid halfway across the world over-night. We need more than creative thinking on this one, we need ACTION!
