Pity the Billionaire

Sun, 22 Jan 2012 09:05:40 PST

BOOK REVIEW - "Pity the Billionaire" by Thomas Frank Thomas Frank has written an informative and interesting book with keen insight into the unlikely and unexpected comeback of the Right after the election of Barack Obama. I wanted to share some of my thoughts with you about the book, "Pity the Billionaire: The Hard Times Swindle and the Unlikely Comeback of the Right." In many ways, the book

Robert C. Byrd Spoke With Clarity Through Fog of Post-9/11 Days

Mon, 28 Jun 2010 08:45:01 PDT

"Truth has a way of asserting itself despite all attempts to obscure it." ~ Senator Robert C. ByrdSenator Robert C. Byrd was one of my heroes in the dark days of post 9/11 Bush-led America. I chronicled his words as I blogged from day to day at Iddybud. I'm sad to hear he has passed away and wanted to share some of the lines of his that I heard clearly when so many of my leaders seemed to be

Sen. Kerry Should Apologize

Tue, 23 Oct 2007 11:12:07 PDT

Sen. Kerry Should ApologizeIn 2004, I can't tell you how frustrated I became - more and more by the day - by Senator Kerry's slowness to tap into the pulse of the people. My blog was filled with advice to Senator Kerry to speak out on the Iraq war with force and convincing reason - and to defend himself against the Swift Boat political operatives. This time, I'm afraid it doesn't matter what his



Note to MSM: Enough with the Caviezel Jesus Thing!

Note to MSM: Enough with the Caviezel Jesus Thing!If I hear one more reference made to Jesus Christ every time the MSM shows the actor Jim Caviezel in one of those anti-embryonic stem-cell research ads, I think I'll scream. On ABC Nightly News Sunday night, it happened again. They showed the ad and for the umpteenth time, I heard a news anchor say "That is the actor Jim Caviezel, who played Jesus

Bill Kristol's Full of Baloney on Election 2006If any Republican wins on November 7, it surely will not be because of the Bush Republicans' great leadership on the Iraq war. It will be because of local politics.On today's Fox News Saunday panel, the neoconservative cult's favorite journalistic representative William Kristol extended his fantasy that the upcoming election is to be a referendum on

Humanity: Divinely Minted Coins - Each UniqueRabbi Arthur Waskow compellingly contrasts the New Testament story about Jesus' recommendation to render unto Caesar what is Caesar's with the Talmud passage regarding the creation of humankind by God in Genesis I: 27. Adding one simple yet revelatory line to the New Testament passage, a whole new light is cast upon the lesson to be learned. As every

Iraq is FUBAR and They Can't Credit GodAt the Nation, Tom Engelhardt's point about Bush and current Iraqi PM Nouri al-Maliki is short and sweet. The fact that the Bush administration has not been able to set up an Iraqi government that has both legitimacy and that meets America's desires is not lost on those who have paid any amount of attention to the 3 1/2-year long disaster of a war.The news

NNSA Conversion Would Mean Less Highly Enriched Uranium

NNSA Conversion Would Mean Less Highly Enriched UraniumI found this interesting news at the Student-Operated Press website. The Bush administration is making efforts to minimize the use of highly enriched uranium in civil applications around the world. Now if they could just find the diplomatic smarts to stop (idiotically) pissing off every kook in the world who has access to the highly-enriched
