President Obama on Dashboard Speaking to OFA Volunteers ~ Evening of September 12th, 2012

President Obama was speaking to us from Las Vegas, Nevada A very tired looking President spoke to “Obama For America” volunteers via Dashboard, the campaign’s social media platform, tonight after, what must have been for him, an extremely exhausting day.  It was a sad and stressful day dealing with the crisis in Egypt and Libya […]

Romney Irresponsibly Inserts Himself into a Serious International Situation & Is Drowning In His Own Incompetence

 I am appalled at the statements of Mitt Romney last night and this morning concerning the attacks on our embassies in Libya and Egypt.  Such neo-con rhetorical nonsense, pronounced during the 9/11 remembrance, is an insult to our honored dead, then and now, and proves that Mr. Romney’s discretion  is no where near presidential quality.  His […]

FORWARD ~ Four More Years With Obama, Our Forward-Looking President

I watched the Republican Convention in Tampa, Florida last week and wasn’t surprised by anything except for Clint Eastwood’s unsuccessful and confusing performance, which left me feeling very sad since I have great respect for him as an artist. (Actually, I quoted Mr. Eastwood in an earlier blog post.)  I didn’t have any of my […]

Utopian Dreams ~ Ayn Rand, John Calvin & the Conservative Right

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course,  involves […]

International “Pander-Ball”!

What is it with Mitt Romney?!  Mr. Gaff-man continues to put his foot in his mouth, this week in England and Israel!  Actually, what is more curious and even more serious than any of his earlier  “flip-floppyi-ness” and his numerous  “Etch-A-Sketch” moments, is his dependence on a simple-minded version of Bush-era foreign policy, even though […]

Can We Please Have a Sensible Discussion About Gun Control?

My heart sank this morning when I saw the news about the massacre in Aurora, Colorado.  My deepest sympathy goes out to all the families of the victims. This litany is a sad one: University of Texas Massacre ~ 1966 California State University Fullerton Massacre ~ 1976 Attempted assassination of President Ronald Reagan ~ 1981 Luby’s Massacre, Kileen, Texas ~ 1991 University […]
