Anyone else mortally offended that there’s a Black man on the golf course who isn’t a caddy? … from one has-been hack … who seems to hate everyone and everything these days … Maureen Dowd of the NY Times … Continue reading
by Walter Brasch The House Select Committee on Intelligence, following almost a two-year intense investigation, unanimously determined there is no basis for what has become known as the Benghazi Scandal. The Committee consists of 12 Republicans and 9 Democrats. The pretend-scandal began Sept. 11, 2012, when terrorists raided the U.S. consulate, and killed the ambassador and three others. Although there was confusion, and the Obama administration didn’t have all the facts when it began to inform the American people about the events and the causes, there was no evidence of anything even remotely linked to a scandal. However, as expected, the blathering mouths of the Extreme Right Wing media pundits and politicians, and those who blindly parrot their … Continue reading

Pew Research has released a new report that highlights post-recession statistics on multi-generational living, as a means of getting by in an economy that has been slow to recover. Pew Research notes in the report, “the declining employment and wages of less-educated young adults may be undercutting their capacity to live independently of their parents. Unemployed adults are much more likely to live in multi-generational households than adults with jobs are.” As American’s continue to struggle financially in the post-recession economy, here’s a look at Sixty Years of Poverty in the United States: In the past fifty to sixty years, poverty in America has been a political issue that is tossed about quite a bit during the Presidential and Congressional … Continue reading
As a single mother who raised a child alone in America, I know full well what a difficult task that is, especially struggling through poverty through most of the years that I raised my daughter alone. When I read the stories about the children from Central America striking out on their own to reach the safety of what they think in some idolized fashion, is sanctuary in America, my heart breaks. My heart breaks, because on some subliminal level, as a single mother, I can only imagine how much harder it is to raise children alone in Central America, where lawlessness is common thread of the culture. Furthering my discomfort about the facts that drive these children to our borders, is … Continue reading
At a Politico playbook lunch in Washington, D.C., today featuring former Vice President Dick Cheney, a heckler was escorted out of the event: Cheney, one of the architects of the Iraq War, has been making the media circuit in recent weeks, continually trying to pin the blame on President Obama for the recent unrest and increasing problems in Iraq. However, it is clear to those opposed to the Iraq War, that Cheney and Bush caused the mess in Iraq, not President Obama. What a shame and a sham that Politico gave Cheney a platform to spew his un-truth. Cheney’s heckler should have been given the podium today, she clearly had more to say than Cheney himself.
