The "Getting Real" Factor

September 21, 2012

In the panic and promise of the year 2012, I note a polarity which - I contend - is dis-empowering any which way you cut it.

On the one side, there is the "Fear Factor" crowd. Global devastation and collapse either at the hand of nature, corporations and their army/nations, or a combination thereof. (more…)

In the beginning of this week, I was rather disappointed with the Obama administration in supporting the firing of Shirley Sherrod.

In listening to the jockeying going on in Congress it is clear that the game being played has little to do with health care. The fact that the not so in tune representative from Ohio could say that he didn't think that anyone is really having a problem with their health insurance lets us (more…)

Feet to the Fire

How more apparent can it be that our political process is so wimpy, reactive, and utterly ineffective when we watch the hyper attention and posturing that comes with the Tuesday election in Massachusetts?
