The Israel-Palestine conflict is quite a complex one. There are two peoples who both lay claim to the same land. The backers of both sides often have a large amount of emotional and political investment in their cause. However, the pro-Palestinian cause is often labeled antisemitic.
Yesterday, I lived through some experiences that rank among those that I will never forget. I took a tour of the White House and within an hour visited the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Monument.
I met Midge Hough in the most modern of ways, on a Facebook thread. Midge was involved in an increasingly heated discussion, amongst progressives, about Obama’s lame duck tax compromise with Republicans that traded an extension of the Bush tax cuts for a long-term extension of unemployment benefits.
Alan Jackson, Democrat, wrote a song two years ago about the effect corporations and their financed business entities were having on the rural and small-town South. It’s very poignant and conveys a strong message.
You see, they want the President to fail as much as the Teabaggers do, because then we’d have to use them as a rallying point again (they think), and we’d forget all the crap they sowed which enabled the opposition and get behind them as “Dear Leaders,” again.
No, like it or not, the current President, not his immediate predecessor – who never met a mission he couldn’t un-accomplish – nor the one before him, has put in place a new paradigm for American foreign policy that, if followed, might actually transform much of the Middle East and restore our badly tarnished reputation.
The right-wing claims to have some sort of monopoly on Christianity and they claim that liberals are godless heathens who have no values. Well, that couldn’t be further from the truth. The left-wing has Christians too, and they are collectively known as The Christian Left.
Occupy Wall Street is proving to be identical to the beginnings of the American Revolution. There will be no silencing of our voices, and any attempt to demonize the 99% is truly un-American. This article represents the second of a multi-part series of articles demonstrating this point.
These guys…Mr. Doocy and Mr. Bolton, are of the opinion that President Obama should have gone in after Gadhafi much earlier and bombed the hell out of Libya to find and get Gadhafi, instead of just supporting the rebels who were opposing Gadhafi.
WaPo recently conducted a poll in which a number of Americans were presented with a very simple question regarding the 2012 Republican Presidential candidates, which turned out to be quite funny. More than a thousand adults were asked to simply…
But here’s a question I’d like to ask the former senator. If sex is just for procreation, does that mean Santorum has only had sex eight times in his life? That’s not exactly a healthy sexual relationship with the woman he’s married to.
Where the Tea Party’s protests against TARP were directed only towards President Obama, Occupy Wall Street protests are directed to those elite few who have corrupted our government to suit their whims. Occupy Wall Street is a revolution in the making, as opposed to the Tea Party who only wanted to alienate liberals and Democrats.
Jesus is no political leader, but an inspiration for subversive, world-changing action. If we want to embody this, then we must stop finding political parties for Jesus to endorse, and start finding our common humanity.
Herman Cain is smart enough to know that Americans love their jingles and their catchy phrases. He also knows about that special talent that few have mastered; to get strong approval from people who have power. Power, as it relates to being appointed to a CEO position, or to secure favor for one’s political aspirations, are the same.
Support has spiked in the past five years, with 40 percent of respondents favoring legalization in 2009 before numbers jumped another 10 percent, according to the annual crime survey conducted Oct. 6-9, with majorities of men, liberals and 18-29 year-olds currently support legalizing cannabis.
Make no mistake: yes, there is an anarchist element at work within the OWS organisation. It’s they who are pushing the “voting-isn’t-worth-it-we-can-take-control-by-other-means” meme; but they are being aided and abetted, perversely, by ratf*ckers, paid for and financed by various GOP-supporting conservative organisations – probably even the Koch brothers.
Wipeout Homophobia on Facebook is one of very few fan pages on facebook that doesn’t use their large numbers for selfish reasons, but instead uses their influence to help thousands and thousands of people. They are an integral part of the LGBT community on facebook, and they reach more than 20 million people every month.
