Supreme Court Rejects Obama’s Drive To Cut Mercury Emissions From Power Plants

Apparently in the rarified atmosphere of the Supreme Court, the conservatives do not fear breathing toxic air or drinking foul water, so why would they deem the health benefits of rational regulations to be appropriate for the masses; once again an example of how economic elitism divorces one from the worldview of the many. I […]

Supreme Court Upholds Arizona’s Independent Redistricting Commission

I find it amusing that Arizona’s Republican Party was fine with the Independent Commission until it lost its seats after the 2012 elections, which propelled it to challenge the Commission on constitutional grounds only to lose their case and now they have cemented the validity of Independent Commissions nationwide; this can be a huge win […]

Obama Gives Impassioned Eulogy At Clementa Pinckney’s Funeral With Comments On Confederate Flag, Racism

As I was watching our President deliver one of the most beautiful, poignant and compelling orations in the form of eulogy that I have ever seen or heard, I kept thinking that I am so proud he is my President. I do not believe in any organized religion, there is way too much humanity in […]

Supreme Court Legalizes Gay Marriage Nationwide

I wonder what the Republican Party’s field of presidential candidates will do with this bit of news. As we have seen with the ruling yesterday in favor of the Affordable Care Act, the Republican Party is still determined to fight against the law both by taking the time to call for a formal vote in […]

No Time To Exhale: The Legal System Is Far From Finished With Obamacare

The Republican Party in its entirety, with this latest frivolous lawsuit exposes its pitiful and empty soul like never before, when will they let the Affordable Care Act do its job in peace; healthcare should be a universal right and not just a privilege for those who can afford it. Moreover if the Republican Party […]

Dems Will Torture GOP With Shutdown Politics In Bid To Win Concessions

As I was reading this article, I couldn’t help but feel pessimistic over the Democratic Party’s ability to stand strong and resolute against budget cuts to social programs and spending hikes for the military only, since the recent betrayal over Fast Track is still too fresh. Democrats were very clearly and loudly told by every […]

Senate Gives Obama Huge Win On Trade

I am so frustrated that after what seems to be two years of signing petition after petition begging both the House and the Senate to vote against Fast Tracking the TPP and the TPPIP, 13 senate democrats betrayed the working and middle class and voted for it. Moreover to add insult to injury, these turncoats […]

Nikki Haley Calls For Confederate Flag To Be Removed From South Carolina Capitol

I never understood the South’s attachment to the Confederate Flag. I realize that I am born and bred in the Northeast, a first generation American and I have spent all of my summers in Europe, which informs my worldview and has shaped my sensibilities regarding economic policy and human rights. Nostalgia is something I understand, […]

The Surprising Reason So Many People Still Don’t Like Obamacare

It’s the nuances that get you each and every time. When we ask ourselves “why did the Affordable Care Act have to be 2000 plus pages long”? The answer is simple, there were a lot of third party interests to satisfy that went beyond the interests of the American people. I have noticed that I […]

Gun Control Measures Dormant In Congress After Charleston Shooting

I say this with complete disgust, but if we couldn’t get anything done in terms of gun control after the massacre of several children and teachers at a school in CT, we will never get it done. Our nation’s weird enthrallment over guns and the gun culture it has created with a complicated romanticization of […]
