Going to Iowa!

We Democrats have a historic opportunity here.  We have several very well-qualified Democrats running great campaigns for President.  This year really is not about choosing “the lesser of two evils” — I am so proud of the field we have and would be happy with any one of the candidates (well, maybe not Gravel). But […]

Attention Ron Paul fans: He’s not a nice man.

First of all, what’s with all the “hand-painted” signs, that look exactly alike?  Do you honestly think they’re fooling anyone?   And hey Ron Paul supporter who goes to ASU, how do you like your subsidized tuition?   What do you think would happen to it if Dr. Paul had his way with education funding?   Say, libertarians, how does Paul’s position on abortion […]

I should be working but the Internets are too good today

A volunteer’s dilemma

I was having lunch with one of my best friends yesterday.  We’ve known each other for 22 years – since third grade when we pretended we were in a famous girl rock band, laughed non-stop because the heroes in a story we wrote were having Lucky Charms for breakfast, and played we were Trixie Belden […]

This week’s gems

Here are a few gems you shouldn’t miss: Say hello to the landlocked Lakota Nation (map) – The Lakota Nation unilaterally withdraws from treaties they signed with the United States. In laymen’s terms, they’ve formed their own country.  The Scandalous Mr. Bush – This is a long list of Bush scandals.  I haven’t gotten through […]
