Politics

Uncle Sam Can't Believe it!Politics

Essays, commentaries, suggestions, on issues affecting Americans and what just plain annoys me. My grandfather Shaw wrote a political column for a paper back in IL, so I guess this runs in the family.

Politics do matter. To everyone. If we want to live in a compassionate and just society, we need to elect politicians that will represent the people and not special interests. Pay attention to what they do, not what they say.




Do Republicans Want John McCain to die? PDF Print E-mail

Are Republicans really hoping McCain will die after if he is elected?Is He Saying What I Think He is Saying?

8/31/08

Ok – so my hubby and I have been wondering why everyone keeps saying Palin is a historic pick for veep.  After all, the Dems chose a woman for the veep spot 24 years ago.  The only way that this nomination is historic is because the Republicans have now done something no one thought they would do until hell freezes over.  It is nice to know the Republicans have finally joined the 20th century.  It is unfortunate for them that the rest of us are now living in the 21st century.  Don’t worry. They will get here eventually.

And Now for A Completely Different Palin PDF Print E-mail

Sarah Palin for Vice President/PresidentAnd Now for Something Completely Different

8/30/08

Wow.  What a shocker.  McCain picked a complete unknown to be his veep pick.  Interesting.  Her name is Sarah Palin and she is a mother of 5 from Alaska.  Republicans are thrilled even though none of them know her – not even McCain who has only met her twice.

Obama Biden 08! PDF Print E-mail

Obama and Biden in 2008Obama Biden 08!

8/23/08

Yay – I am so excited.  Obviously, if you have been reading my political posts, you know I am a big Biden fan.  I have been hoping that Obama would choose Biden.  When he gave his criteria for what he was looking for in a veep, it sounded exactly like Biden.  So, now we have 2 quality individuals with strong moral values that they actually strive to live up to, running for our highest office.  Yay!  If you haven’t donated to their campaign yet, please do so.  They aren’t taking lobbying or PAC money so it is important that we the people fund this campaign.

Conflict in Ossetia made simple PDF Print E-mail

Conflict in Ossetia made simple

South Ossetia wants independance

8/11/08

Ok – I was a bit confused by this. I thought that Ossetia was a rather lawless border state.  Suddenly, Russia and Georgia are in armed conflict over it.  What the heck is going on?  Both Obama and McCain have taken very different approaches to this conflict and without knowing more about the source of the conflict, it is impossible to know which approach is better. So, I did a little research.

UK UFO Hacker Drama PDF Print E-mail

Is looking for UFO's the same thing as terrorism?What the Heck!

8/8/08

The problem with US newscasts is that they rarely provide any news.  Even Keith Olbermann, who I love, doesn’t provide a lot of real news, though I appreciate how he goes in depth into specific subjects.  To get real news about the world, and the US, you need to go abroad.  The BBC still does a good job, so I have taken to watching their nightly broadcast on BBC America.

Offshore Drilling Scam PDF Print E-mail

Offshore drilling is a scamOffshore Drilling Scam

8/1/08

According to the front-page headline in my local paper yesterday, 60% plus of my fellow Floridians mistakenly believe that increased offshore drilling will help reduce gas prices. We apparently believe this nonsense despite the ready availability of information to the contrary.

More drilling is an illusion that won’t change anything! McCain and his economic advisor/lobbyist for the oil industry Phil Graham spoke the truth when they said that allowing more offshore drilling would provide “mostly a psychological benefit.” Translation: they are pretending to do something while actually doing nothing so that you will want to re-elected them.

He Said What?!?!? PDF Print E-mail

jesse jackson apparently isn't very niceHe said what?!?!?

7/10/08

By now you have probably heard that the Rev Jesse Jackson made some crude remarks about Senator Obama.  I don’t even know where to start.  There are several aspects of this whole thing I find really funny.  The whole idea of a spiritual leader making this sort of comment just amuses me.

Truth to Power: Guantanamo PDF Print E-mail

Truth to Power: Finally!

detainees at quantanamo

6/15/08

Imagine my surprise today when my hometown newspaper ran a headline that “Many at Gitmo had few or no terror ties.”  This was the top headline!  Turns out McClatchy newspapers conducted an 8-month long investigation into detainees at Gitmo and according to them, it became clear that Guantanamo was not exactly legal and was definitely operating “beyond the law.”  WOW!
