Posting History for cos82005
|This whole mess has made me dislike Conservatives even more.
I had this urge to jump on the "blame Obama" bus, but I think everyone who's written a diary criticizing the President's handling of this manufactured crisis has spoken for me. But this whole ...
|I like to know what did my parents' generation do to piss you off?
Before I get to the point of this I would like to tell you a little bit about my mother. She grew up on Chicago's South East Side, just a few blocks away from the steel mills. Her mother had 10 ...
|We Are Governed by Amateurs.
Let's take a break from the Obama/Cenk wars to point out something that is quite obvious. Our congress is being led by amateurs. One side is clearly afraid of standing up to a political party that ...
|30 Years of enabling led to this.
Before I go any further, I would like to share something an aquaintance of my wrote on his Facebook page during the "Jon Stewart let's get our Civil on" rage: Hey fellow liberals - ...
It's been quite awhile since I've posted on here, but since the House of Representatives has fell into the hands of the Tea Party, I feel the need to vent my frustrations. But first... Here's ...
|Here's a real shocker: Gay Marriage approved in Mexico City
I sympathize with many Gay Americans who feel disappointed at the direction Barack Obama is taking on the issues of Gay rights. To me, it strikes me as classic Clinton Centrism which is basically a ...
|We Are All Rush Limbaugh?
My apologies if this has been diaried, but I couldn't resist. I really wanted to know how are Dittoheads around this supposed great country are taking the news that their hero, Rush "I hope ...
|The Best Conservative Movies of the Last 25 years.
I tend to believe that Conservatives, in this down time for their movement, will cling to the values of Freedom, Patriotism, families, and traditions, more so than ever before. The problem is, that ...
|He Made Me Care.
To mark the end of the Bush Presidency, I thought about writing a series of essays about what this man's administration meant to the nation and what he'll leave behind but as I constructed the ideas ...
|Colin Powell Eviscerates Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin.
When one mentions the name Colin Powell, almost immediately we revert back to that moment when he presented a fradulent case for war with Iraq to the United Nations. Obviously that particular moment ...
|Republicans need to be more like Democrats? The problems in the country suggest, yes.
It was apparent after the disgraceful spectacle at the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago that the Democratic party was finished. It would've taken a miracle for the Democratic nominee, ...
|You know things are bad when...
Mike Ditka gives his endorsement to the McCain-Palin ticket. Oh, how the mighty have fallen. While Barack Obama is picking up major endorsements from Colin Powell, Reagan's chief of staff Ken ...
|It's time to dismantle Nixonland.
Whenever the word Republican comes up I only think of three individuals: Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, and Dwight D. Eisenhower. I refuse to recognize Ronald Reagan because whenever I watch ...
|What a Powell Endorsement might mean for Sarah Palin.
There's mounting speculation on what Colin Powell will say on Meet the Press tomorrow morning. According to Laurence O'Donnell, Powell is ready to endorse a candidate for President. And, that said ...
|A thank you letter to John McCain, Sarah Palin, and the rest of the Republican party.
To John McCain, Sarah Palin, and the "good" folks that make up the rest of the Republican party: I must confess that the success Barack Obama is having has surprised me a great deal.
|This is still the Party of Richard Nixon.
I keep thinking to myself, "is this a dream?" I keep thinking that I'm going to wake up in the morning, turn on the TV to some cable channel littered with Election '08 coverage and hear John ...
|Why I remain very nervous
Many of you who will read this will abhor the negative feelings that I'm about to express and I don't blame you. After all, those who've checked the excellent website electoral-vote.com should feel ...
|More nonsense about Senator McBush's selection.
My guess is before John McCain watched Barack Obama's historic speech Friday night, he had already made up his mind about who would be his running mate. And, no it wasn't Governor Sarah Palin. I'm ...
|Seriously Senator is this a Joke?
Okay, so I guess all the pundits and preachers on television were all wrong. As we thought, John McCain ( a noun, a verb, POW) was either going to pick Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty, or Tom Ridge as his ...
|Enough of this. Let's stick to the most pressing issues of the day.
The week of August 4-8 brought us three explosive stories. One, being that Brett Favre was traded to the New York Jets. Two, the revelation that Former North Carolina Senator John Edwards had an ...
|We're witnessing the actions of a child.
If anyone believed that John McCain was going to run an honorable campaign well, I'm sorry, but you've been duped. To think that any Republican would run a clean campaign where he and his opponent ...
|Seriously, Bill Clinton needs to either chill out or completely go away.
If there's one lesson I learned from Saturday's burlesque show known as the RBC it's that the Clinton era is over. Yet, former President Bill Clinton will not go away without kicking and screaming ...
It's quite remarkable that an individual who possess such amazing intellect could stoop to the lowest forms of humanity by invoking the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy as a reason to carry on ...
|Why I'm Supporting Barack Obama.
Under no circumstances was I going to vote for any Democratic Presidential candidate who voted for the ill-fated Iraq War Resolution. Even, if it meant that another tired-looking, middle-aged ...
|Hillary Clinton needs to take her ball and go home.
Kudos to Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton for another win in this long, tiring campaign for the Democratic nomination. Hell, in her honor, I might even down a shot but I probably just get even dumber. ...
|Just who in the hell is Pat Buchanan and why does he think he still relevant?
Contrary to any belief, Richard Nixon was a born loser. The pug-ugly Son of a bitch was, in his eyes, destined for greatness, but his defeats in 1960 and in the 1962 race for Governor of California, ...
|The Hillary Clinton Experience
Kudos to Senator Hillary Clinton for bringing the word "experience" back into our lexicon. After all, it's refreshing to see a candidate campaign on their credentials rather than campaign on the ...
|Jerry Falwell's Negative Impact on Religion and Politics
When word came down that Jerry Falwell met his demise my first reaction was shock, followed by a shrug of the shoulders and the need to go the bathroom. This poor excuse for a man who spent his ...
|Why the Democrats should feel good about 2008
Last Thursday, 10 middle-aged white men walked into the graveyard of history in a attempt to distinguish among themselves as the true heir to the Conservative throne of Ronald Reagan. A man who's ...
|Open Challenge to Conservatives
So, this is what the party of Lincoln has been reduced to, defending racist comments. Tom DeLay and Presidential Candidate Mike Huckabee have called out the left for their alleged hypocrisy in the ...
|Throwing Hip-Hop under the bus and Double Standards
My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over. No, President Bush didn't resign and Dick Cheney wasn't hauled away in handcuffs. Talk Radio host Don Imus was fired for making racially ...
|Olbermann is killing the world's Democracy, says Glenn Beck
When I watch Glenn Beck's program it amazes me that a bigot like Beck can con his way into every American home by portraying himself as a pragmatic commentator who sees everything from a Centrist ...
|Oprah and Bill: Two Peas in a Pod
I didn't think it would be possible for me to hate Oprah Winfrey even more, until I saw Bill O'Reilly con his way onto her show as "America's foremost expert on how to stop Child Molestation."
|Tim Hardaway: The Face of Gay Hatred in all of Professional Sports
The recent comments of former NBA all-star Tim Hardaway did not surprise me the least bit. The sporting world is filled with such hatred, intolerance and cruelty that it makes the KKK look like a ...
|The Anna Nicole Spectacle: Brought to you by the mainstream media
For those of you that have followed Anna Nicole Smith's career the last few years, it should come to no surprised that her traveling freak show would come to such a stunning halt. The statuesque, ...
|Yes, you can root against the New Orleans Saints
Allow me to be politically incorrect. All of America feel horrible for what transpired in the wake of Hurricane Katrina 17 months ago. But no matter what happens in the NFC Championship game ...
|The Greatest Myth Ever Told
With a President defined by his reckless and criminal invasion of Iraq, his enablers can come up with one simple argument: It's all the Liberal media's fault.
|The Game Is Over, Mr. Bush.
We've come to a point where the President of the United States is willing to send thousands of young men and women to their deaths in order to salvage whatever creditiblity he has left. We've ...
|You've run out of chances.
There's been talk tonight about this being President Bush's last chance at victory in Iraq. The question is, why give this man one last opportunity to redeem whatever little integrity he had in ...
|The People that need to go away in 2007.
Well here it is. Another year ending, another New Year's Eve wasted. Sure, I'd like to go out and hit the downtown Chicago nightlife on this dank and dreary night, but thanks to the NFL, the Bears, ...
|President Gerald Ford: 1913-2006
As a man under the age of thirty, the only images I have of Gerald Ford are of the constant reruns of SNL, where Chevy Chase portrays the 38th President of the United States as a bumbling, stumbling,
|What the G.O.P. needs this Christmas is some class.
I know this must be a difficult holiday for Congressman Virgil Goode and his family. Having to share these festive days with people who don't look anything like him, or practice the same faith as him.
|Surviving the 'War on Christmas'
Let me be honest if I can. For those who are offended by somebody wishing you a "merry Christmas," you people are just plain idiots. It's a simple courtesy greeting. Say "thank you," and move on. ...
|So, Bill, when are you going to apologize?
Many times I've often accused the American people of being simple-minded and worse, stupid. For the past two weeks, however, I've been proven dead wrong.
|O.J. and Fox: The Perfect Marriage
Here's a question to those who believed that O.J. Simpson is innocent of the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman: Now, that O.J. has come out with a book and ...
