Alison Lundergan Grimes May Have Found Mitch McConnell’s Weak Spot

The perceptions about our President are so weird; I disagee with many of his foreign policy decisions such as the drones, going after whistle blowers and codifying many of the Bush/Cheny directives that made our civil liberties more fragile; however when it comes to the economy, healthcare and the environment, our President has done quite […]

Liberal Lurch: Both Parties Find Progressive Jesus In Dying Moments Of Campaign

My first reaction was that, in a perfect world, both parties are doing what they should be, which is reaching out to their respective constituents with assurances that they will be legislating on their behalf and using progressive ideas to govern with in order to create proactive economic and political policies. My second reaction was […]

The Crisis in U.S.-Israel Relations Is Officially Here

Bibi Netanyahu isn’t playing politics, I believe that he is governing his actual values and ideals and doesn’t want to pursue any deal whatsoever with the Palestinians. I think that he doesn’t even see them as a people, he sees them as a threat and that’s it. His fixation with Iran’s nuclear program is what […]

2016 Hopefuls Catch Ebola Flak | TheHill

The sharp contrast between our President hugging the Texas nurse upon her recovery from the Ebola virus and these two governors who, instead of listening to our medical experts, fed the fire of fear and ignorance, is quite illuminating. It reminds me that I would always prefer a cooler head in the White House over […]

Chuck Schumer: Supreme Court Will Thwart Democrats For Decades If We

I am more worried over what Rob Portman said about having a republican majority in the senate and forcing the President to the table in the hopes of solving the great problems of our time. That is code for many things, but just off the top of my head, I can name Social Security and […]

Struggling Governors Could Hurt GOP’s Senate Hopes

It isn’t surprising that a senator or representative’s reelection fate would be tied to his or her governor’s performance. A governorship is closely related to that of a presidency in terms of how their political ideological agenda hurts or helps their respective states. The constituents have a bird’s eye view of whether conservative economic policies […]

Elizabeth Warren Teams Up With Orrin Hatch To Push Huge Science Research Fund

This is precisely what the voters deserve, lawmakers working together for the common good regardless of party. Hats off to Orrin Hatch for embracing research and development funding despite the fact that it goes against the grain in his Tea Party dominated Republican Party’s ideological wheelhouse. I also applaud my senator Elizabeth Warren for doing […]

Republican Governors Might Save The Democrats — NYMag

I think that the governor’s race is a better indication as to whether Keynesian economic policies work for people as opposed to the supply-side economic policies that Republican governors such as Sam Brownback have imposed. If we look at California versus Wisconsin or Kansas; we see that California is no longer heading towards doom and […]

How The Fed Blew Its Most Important Job For Over Three Years

Transparency, audits, regulatory powers and accountability; all these are necessary ingredients that we have to demand of our finance industry. We have the right to demand that our lawmakers hold Wall Street to a specific moral code because despite what the finance industry seems to think, they do not exist in a vacuum. If Wall […]

Politicians Are No Scientists On Climate Change, But They’re Happy To Give Medical Opinions On Ebola

Marco Rubio and his fellow republicans may not be scientists, but they still need to respect science and they don’t, why? Because they are beholden to Big Oil, Big Coal and Big Natural Gas and their many, many dollars and that is just wrong. There once was a time when the Republican Party accepted science […]
