Protesting the President-Elect

Protests will make people sit up and listen. I think it may be effective in uniting those with common concerns. I think it sends an important message – to those marginalized folks? You are not alone. You have allies. I am determined to be a part of the solution for a better tomorrow. I cannot change the past. I cannot change today. But I can sure as hell make sure I do my damnedest to bring about a country where ALL of my friends and family are treated equally.

America, what have we done…

I’m kind of an odd duck in the world of politics. Socially liberal, fiscally conservative, and a few odd subjects that swing completely opposite of what you’d expect – I don’t fit in any one candidate’s (or party’s) camp. With this year’s presidential election, there is far more at stake than who will be the next POTUS.…

I don’t often have the chance to read up on news in the evenings. So, yesterday’s headline on the CNN Political Ticker…

Super Tuesday = Super Tense

It’s Primary time, and no matter what side of the political fence you stand on (perhaps even straddling it?) that means it’s time to start getting serious about voting for our nation’s next President. Oh, and the choices are just so overwhelmingly underwhelming this go ’round, aren’t they? Aside from a few very passionate folks,…

Rush is right … right?

OK, by now, anyone who has read enough of my stuff understands that I am politically rather twisted (and if you don’t yet – read my Politically Bent page…) The deal is – I can’t claim “conservative” or “liberal” since I tend to agree with one side on one issue, and the other side on…
