This quote by Democratic strategist Howard Wolfson during an interview with The Atlantic confirms for me why electing a Liberal like Bill De Blasio to be Mayor of New York City will not mean the magical disappearance of income inequality, and also serves as a reminder of why I don’t have a party […]Read More WHO DIGS POOR FOLKS ANYWAY?
You’ve heard President Obama present his case for military action against Syria by now. I was silent because – and this is probably a character flaw I need to address – I thought everyone can read between the lines and know that the speech was hogwash.

Tomorrow’s 12th anniversary of the September 11 attacks reminds me of two events during the past year that involve America at peace and at war.

Reading the bones on the ground, what’s Team Obama’s next brilliant idea to get as many “Yes, you may bomb Syria” […]Read More OBAMA HAS LOVE FOR BLACK CAUCUS – AT THE MOMENT

We have respective […]Read More SAINE AND MARBLE’S FRIED CHICKEN THEORY OF POVERTY
Russian President Vladimir Putin said two interesting things during an interview with the Associated Press and a Russian television station about his support for embattled Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
