Bradley Manning: an American hero?

Bradley Manning: an American hero?

          Bradley Manning deserves Americans' support for military whistleblowing Thanks to WikiLeaks, US citizens are better informed about wars prosecuted in their name. We owe Manning honour, not jail time Last week, PFC Bradley Manning offered to accept responsibility for releasing classified documents as an act of conscience – not as charged by the US military.

What do you mean “We Lost?”

What do you mean “We Lost?”

  Apoplectic: of a kind to cause or apparently cause stroke as in an apoplectic rage; also: greatly excited or angered as in she was apoplectic over the news. Hegemony: the social, cultural, ideological, or economic influence exerted by a dominant group. These are my new favorite words of the week.  They perfectly define the GOP and the right’s feelings, and the cause of those feelings, after last Tuesday’s re-election of President Obama. It has been quoted that the Romney camp ... Full Story

Is America in decline?

Is America in decline?

  Tomgram: Ira Chernus, Ignoring American Decline   Failure and unintended consequences: these are often hallmarks of U.S. military interventions.  Who could have imagined, for instance, that forcing open the Kingdom of Japan at the point of U.S. Navy guns would eventually lead to bombs falling on ships from that same navy at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii?  Or who could have foreseen that attempting to tip the scales in favor of French colonial forces in Vietnam in the 1950s ...

Gardner: More Republican lies

Gardner: More Republican lies

In a press release to the editor (following) Cory Gardner uses an old technique to twist the truth, nay, even lie. He introduces as truth something which is not true or is only his opinion. Introducing such a statement is called using a “strawman.” After making the statement, in this case that the Obama administration discriminates against oil and gas, he then uses the statement to attack the administration. This seems to be a tactic of the current crop of Republicans. Since they do not ... Full Story

Leadership in the White House

Leadership in the White House

In my own career in the military and a degree in personnel management, I have been able to observe people in positions of authority. I have been able to ascertain that there is a big difference between managers and leaders. I have observed many competent managers but real leaders are few and far between. Leaders engender trust and loyalty because in addition to managing, they take care of their people. A reading of the D-Day invasion and landing at Omaha beach will illustrate this point. ...

The truth about jobs

The truth about jobs

      Obama vs. Romney: Jobs By Bob Burnett Jobs and the economy remain Americans' number one concern.

Tough Talk For America

Tough Talk For America

        A Recipe for American Decline That No One Will Be Debating   Posted by Mattea Kramer   Five big things will decide what this country looks like next year and in the 20 years to follow, but here’s a guarantee for you: you’re not going to hear about them in the upcoming presidential debates. 1. Immediate deficit reduction will wipe out any hope of economic recovery: 2.  Taxes are at their lowest point in more than half a century, ... Full Story

Will Republicans steal the election?

  There is genuine concern that the republicans will try to steal the coming election. There is plenty of evidence that they have the mindset to do so. In addition the wholesale lies by the Republicans and their SuperPacs, (go to Politifact.com to see) there are many avenues available that may be effective. Certainly the efforts at voter suppression in the guise of fighting a non-existent voter fraud is one example. However, it turns out that the Republican’s worry about ... Full Story
