Glenn Beck Thinks He’s Martin Luther King, Jr.

We are on the side of individual freedoms and liberties, and damn it we will reclaim the civil rights moment. We will take that movement because we were the people that did it in the first place… Glenn Beck is planning a big organized rally on the anniversary of Dr. King’s 1963 March on Washington, […]

Detroit Ex-Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick Sentenced To Prison

In his 2002 inaugural address, Kilpatrick said: “ I stand before you as a son of the city of Detroit and all that it represents. I was born here in the city of Detroit, I was raised here in the city of Detroit, I went to these Detroit Public Schools. I understand this city. … […]

Obama Inspires Black Republicans To Seek Office

The House has not had a black Republican since 2003, when J. C. Watts of Oklahoma left after eight years. But now black Republicans are running across the country — from a largely white swath of beach communities in Florida to the suburbs of Phoenix, where an African-American candidate has raised more money than all […]

My Thoughts On Immigration, Circa 2007

My thoughts in 2007: It’s about more than supply and demand. There’s a great deal of random disparity in the current system that is not only at odds with the current rule of law, but it grants legal status to certain nationalities at a much higher rate than others who come from arguably worse economic conditions.

The Tea Party: A Misguided Movement

When a political movement takes off as quickly as the Tea Party, there is no doubt that the phrase “we don’t believe you, you need more people” no longer applies. What counts is having the ability to articulate your beliefs in a way that makes sense to a broad base of biased and unbiased onlookers.  They almost had me believing that they were really […]

Pissed Off Republicans And The Audacity Of The Tea Party

And if you’re anything like me, you’ve probably asked yourself more than once, what exactly […]

Supreme Court Justice Hillary Clinton?

Last week, Justice John Paul Stevens announced that he is retiring. This will be the second Supreme Court Justice President Obama will pick and have confirmed in his capacity as president. This is a big deal. He’s been given the opportunity to have another hand in shaping the US Supreme Court. These lifetime appointments are not decided lightly. We are looking […]

A Constance McMillen Rant: Mississippi Students Bigotry Reflects The Tone Of America

You remember Constance McMillan, the lesbian teen from Mississippi who was denied attendance to her prom if she brought a girl and wore a tux. Well, she finally had her prom, but there’s a catch. Only 7 other students were there including the principal and a few teachers. The other outcasts included 2 learning disabled students who didn’t receive an invite […]

In The Words Of Joe Biden, “This Is A Big Effing Deal”

Let’s hear what Joe Biden had to say about the health bill passing. The Republicans Respond Only hours after President Barack Obama signed one of the most sweeping pieces of health care legislation in American history, U.S. Sen.
