What the f*&^* is wrong with us??? (A rant)
This is a rant, based on something that happened today. Perhaps it is not diary material but this is the only community where I think this rant may resonate. That, sadly, in and of itself is not a ...

I wrote and thanked Roger Simon
I don't always agree with Mr. Simon. But this morning, I applauded him. On Reliable Sources he was the only person with the integrity to call out violent rhetoric and violent imagery for what it is..

I think everyone needs to read Trey Ellis NOW
There has been much yelling and screaming here for weeks now, and sadly too many here take the word of the television pundit class on everything. This is the same group of people who said over and ...

Debate in CO ......sort of....well really a forum and no candidates there
Last night in a very red county in CO we had a forum for democratic voters. And we got a full house in attendance. The County dems had hoped we would get 30 or 40 people and, holy cow, we had at ...

Chris Matthews you are a misogynistic pig and a total hypocrite.
So yesterday he is drooling over Mitt's wonderful speech. And yet before that, he was whining that religion should not be a part of this. Which the hell is it Chris???? Oh I forgot. Mitt is a ...

Speaking of sexism........

Seriously, how is Chris Matthews going to spin his hypocrisy if it is Hillary vs Rudy?

Tucker Carlson IS the epitome of elitist and a hypocrite to boot.
So he's there, trashing Hillary every other sentence, trying to use Obama to trash her, and at the same time, insulting Obama every chance he gets. He calls Hillary a "McGovern elitist." He ...

Has Chris Matthews been in a coma for the last 8 years? Or is he just a liar and phony?
Something is wrong with Matthews. Today he acts all bent out of shape when one of his guests implies he was less than fair when Gore was running the first time, as he is spewing angrily back at his ...

A CALL OUT by state......YEA or NAY for those who supported or denied our right to free speech

FYI....JENA case mentioned, surprisingly, on FOX
Normally, I never watch FOX. So tonight as I am channel surfing, going past FOX is fast but I actually heard the words, "The JENA 6" So I tuned in..... just for that story. It was on "Geraldo" ...

Where have you gone, Mr. Robinson?
So, yesterday afternoon, I am getting ready to run an errand, had MSNBC on in the background as I gather things, and I hear Eugene Robinson's voice. So I stopped to watch. OK, so it was on the ...

Can someone, maybe a lawyer, explain something.....
I understand that DA Niphong broke the law and his assumption of guilt on those boys was wrong. I understand also he has lost his right to practice law. What I don't understand is on the other side.

Who woulda thunk it? A rant in shock and awe mode!
How can a racist, xenophobe, sexist screamer like Pat Buchanan be considered mainstream by his colleagues? How can anyone consider Chris Matthews even remotely liberal? How can a major media star, ...

So, $168,000 salary is not enough to live on? Hmmmmmmmm.....
Maybe it's me. Maybe I am just too ignorant and stupid to understand just how these people get away with this public elitism and then say we, the liberals/progressives, are starting class warfare?
Jjc2006 08/18/2007 73 37 2 18
Are progressives here really cowards? Are we afraid to stand up to bullies?
This will be short. I am becoming quite discouraged here. I am reading too many diaries that are allowing the bullies (Rove, the Republicans, Bush) to determine what we believe. A little more over ...

Why the FISA vote should not have been a surprise!
Yes, I was upset and disappointed. Even angry! But surprised? NO WAY!! There are several reason why we should not be surprised. First and foremost, the views on democracy, at best, change slowly.

MSNBC is worse than FOX and deserves our contempt and should be boycotted
It's not JUST Chris Matthews' total hypocrisy; or Morning Joe's total phony attempt at being "cool"; or Dan Abrams need to prove he can be as obnoxious and controversial as any wingnut while coming ...

An answer for Chris Matthews......
Since once again, Mr. Matthews is obsessing on Hillary, this time on the "Why wouldn't she answer my question about Scooter Libby," as well as getting Nader to play "Let's Trash Hillary"

Souless twits who work for the MSM
Chris Matthews is obsessed with hating Hillary. That is a no brainer. It's not about disagreeing with her; he simply dislikes her. Andrea Mitchell shocked me as she actually debated the twit aka ...

Politicians must be smart enough, ambitious enough and
able to plan and calculate. And yet, Hillary, a woman, is constantly trashed by neocons and sadly, by many here, for being ambitious and calculating. Well, duh. Any politician with a few brain ...

Confused or am I living on a different planet?
Of course, like most, I am angry at the war, at the bogus reasons we are there; at the faux prez, "the decider" who got us there; at the lack of health care; at indecent, immoral wages as a result ...
