Photo credit: ePublicist via Foter.com / CC BY-ND This is an interesting interview with Liz Wahl on disinfo and fake news. No, I don’t take the childish paleo-libertarian (read: knee-jerk-politically incorrect-get off my lawn) view that fake news and disinformation campaigns don’t exist. You have to be an idiot or willfully ignorant to believe […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
True story. NOTE: Criticizing Trump does not equal an endorsement of Clinton or anyone else. I should not have to explain that to rational adults, but for some reason it is a recurring theme during this election. Please control your silly emotional outbursts and behave like an adult.

The Ominous Republican Hold on Congress by Sheldon Richman As we face the new year, the biggest concern for peace lovers is Republican control of the U.S. Senate. While Republican votes don’t reach the key number 60, members of the GOP will still be in a strong position to push their belligerent global agenda. […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Election 2014: The Good News and Bad by Sheldon Richman The 2014 midterm election delivered both good news and bad. The good news is that the losers lost. The bad news is that the winners won. Journalist Mike Barnicle says he’s never seen an election in which the people feel so distant from the […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
It is fascinating to me how often SOME progressives, like some of their counterparts on the right, will outright lie and then act like petulant children when busted in said lies. Case in point is "The Mahablog", most recently taking part in the childish game of labeling Republicans with minor libertarian leanings as being representive […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
