President The
Author: velveeta jones    Date: 10/05/2014 14:23:20

After all the recent controversies that our current "president" has had, it's time to start courting a STRONG candidate. Some one who can rule with an iron fist and a head of hair that says "courage to go out in public".

We need: THE DONALD.

Good Morning.

An early Saturday - I'm off to do some local politicking today. We'll be putting out some yard signs for local candidate Tom Stanley, a gentleman who I would like to replace on City Council next year. (He's running for Mayor; it's his Representative seat that's up this time around.)

In any case, I've been ruminating on Congress of late. We've all seen the news; it's been a hell of a week.

Shallow though it may be, the world needs more cute. Reminders of the adorable, funny, and sweet can balance a sometimes very dark world.

Not in My Name
Author: BobR    Date: 2014-10-01 10:42:59

There is a lot of coverage of ISIS/ISIL lately. It's warranted, because - despite their small numbers - they have some smart experienced people at the top, and access to a lot of funds and armaments. While there are some who are against the U.S. becoming involved in any way, shape, or form with yet another war in the Middle East, this one seems different. Their explosive growth (no pun intended) and ability to overrun trained armies makes them a more formidable foe than the ragtag band of al-Qaeda in Afghanistan.

While it may be non-Muslims (ie: Christians) in the U.S. who think they are the main targets of this group, the reality is that the vast majority of those killed by them have been other Muslims. It's not enough to be Muslim in their eyes - you must be their particular brand of Muslim or you will be put to death.

Here in the U.S., we shudder to think of it. What animals they must be! WE would never do anything like that here... we wouldn't think of killing others because they don't subscribe to "our" Christian beliefs...

would we?

The Belittling of Democracy
Author: Will in Chicago    Date: 2014-09-27 10:45:30

Ever since I could vote, I took my responsibility to do so very seriously. I grew up in a neighborhood with many veterans. The local polling place was my Chicago elementary school. My classes in grade school included learning about the U.S. and Illinois Constitutions. We even took a trip to Springfield to see the state legislature.

With that background, perhaps it is understandable that I get upset at efforts to strip people of their democratic rights or belittle democracy
