Thank you for the opportunity to speak before the court. When I first met Mr. Manross, the sentencing officer who prepared the presentence report, he explained that it was essentially his job to “get to know me.” He said he had to get to know who I really was…
The blog post comparing Bush spend vs Obama's that was here a couple of days ago was fallacious because it compared the 8 years of Bush vs the 2-and-a-bit years of Obama. If you see the flow (as above) look at how the current President is taking the nation to the cleaners.
I just read an LA Times article about Obama and Immigration Reform. The whole article is quite sickening to the hardened non-believer like myself, but what's even more irking to me is how overdone he was at this "Latino Prayer Breakfast" with the scripture, the "morals", etc. I don't really have much of an end-note here for this blog, but I thought I would share because… Continue
I'm so upset about this, and I don't see how any progressive, or supporter of liberty of any kind, can support President Obama, turn a blind eye to these policies yet call themselves politically aware. My article "Cult Politics" was published at OpEdNews.com about a week ago, and I will post that as well below, but read Glenn Greenwald's article, then listen to this poor kid and what happened to him.
With the passage of the US health care bill being hailed as a landmark victory for Obama, I think it might be appropriate to get the opinions of the baby-killers among us who see the glaring hypocrisy in this bill.
As most of you already know, this bill hinges on the promise Obama made that abortion will NOT be covered. Keeping to the central theme of this website (and not even going into the details of how the health care issue even came into public discourse), I find it highly… Continue
While the battle to overturn Proposition 8 in California rages, Pres. Obama has remained silent on this obvious violation of human rights. His voice could hold tremendous sway in tipping the balance in our favor so it is of the utmost importance that we make our voices heard and demand true change. Please sign this petition, it will be delivered directly to the White House with all of your signatures. Even if you don't believe in internet petitions, it can't hurt to add your name.
First, I should mention that I am not a very political person; I am not posting this to promote or chastise either major political party. (I just don't have enough time to research and investigate current affairs to my own satisfaction; I never feel informed enough to take a decided stance on most policy matters.) Anyways, this amused me the other day.
The scene: three women conversing over cups of coffee in the office break room. (I have changed the names… Continue

On August 20th, a collection of doctors in Santa Rosa, California, assembled on a corner and lobbied the public to support the public health care option. EmpireReport.org reporter, John Stiffler, interviewed some of the doctors and created a video. What do you think?
Less than three weeks before the 2008 Presidential Election, real life hockey mom Sandy Riccardi and her moose Richard Riccardi (SanRich) aimed their musical weapon at Sarah Palin and took the internet by storm. Some have credited their song, Hockey Mama for Obama with clinching the election for Obama (but they don’t.)… Continue
Three weeks after saying he would release the pictures, President Obama is moving to prevent the press from obtaining the pictures of the confirmed acts of torture. The courts have already ruled that any “secrecy” considerations are insufficient to overrule the first amendment right to free press. Obama, ignoring the court and taking a play, from the Bush Administration’s playbook, said today he would try to block the release of the… Continue
Please notice in this picture this man's penis is blurred out because it's the most offensive part of the picture
After many weeks of discussion, President Obama finally coughed up the word we all have been waiting to hear. He relented to using the honest word, the word we’ve been using for five years, the only word that could be applied to our treatment of many “enemy combatants.” It is not a pretty word, in fact it is a shameful word but it is the only accurate… Continue
(CNN) — Newt Gingrich said Tuesday the Obama administration is "intensely secular" and "anti-religious," the former House Speaker's second hard-hitting criticism of the new administration this week. In an interview with FOX News, Gingrich said he strongly disagreed with Obama's choice of Harry Knox — an outspoken activist for gay rights — to the White House advisory council on faith-based initiatives.
"I think their goal is to have a very secular America in which… Continue
Its all over the news this morning (in case you hadn't heard); Obama will be overturning Bush's ban on government funded stem cell research.
On the news this morning (from what I saw) the news anchors kept mentioning the moral decision. Then they get a few people being interviewed, some yammering about Obama's morals, some about the country's morals, and I even saw one… Continue
