Only One Election

Posted on June 6, 2012 in Elections

I believe pre-election polls should be outlawed. There is no reason for them other than to provide a bit of puffery for the news. And I think they have the effect of lowering participation in elections. People see that their candidate is, according to the poll, slated to lose, so they don’t show up. This […]

What Businessman Running for President?

If anything, Mitt Romney is an anti-businessman.


The Real Depravity of 2012

Posted on May 16, 2012 in Accountability Campaign 2012 Gender Hatred Propaganda

Let me get this clear: I am not gay. But according to the Radicals of the Tea Party (who really don’t care about gay marriage except to excite the fear-driven) I must be homosexual because I support same sex marriage. And I have supported it for many years — about 24 to be precise. To […]

My city consists of a variety of economic communities. In my neighborhood alone, we have one bedroom condos, two bedrooms, townhouses, regular houses, and fine mansions on the hill.

My only question is “Jerry Brown? Won’t you run?


Return of the Wimpocrats

Posted on November 3, 2010 in Campaign 2010

I think Rachel Maddow said it best: Democrats, if you don’t campaign on your accomplishments, the Republicans will. Once again, however, the Wimpocrats appeared and acted as if all they had done was something to be ashamed of. And that lost them the House. Here are the elements that did the Democrats in this time: […]

They, too, are part of America, but the problem is that they want to be the only definition of America.


Flaming Fog and a Red Sports Car

Posted on June 25, 2010 in Anxiety Campaign 2006 Encounters Hiking Loneliness Weather

Yesterday was as momentous as being wedged against a smooth, unshatterable pane of glass: forever in the sight of the world but engaging with none of it.
