|Torture - Now and Then
Then: 1947 In the aftermath of World War II, Japanese officer Yukio Asano is charged by a US war crimes tribunal for torturing a US civilian. Asano had used the technique of “waterboarding” on ...
|Isolated, unrelated NFL bad actors?
With all the coverage of the rash of players with domestic and child abuse, it is curious to not see any discussion of underlying causes. It is similar to the coverage of radical Islamists - all ...
|take that you virus
The US foreign policy has fully devolved into a "one size fits all" approach. Anywhere there is a problem - Send in the military! Obama responds to a serious public health problem in west Africa ...
Clearly, the police state actions in Ferguson are a major story - not limited to Feguson, St. Louis, or even MO. Militarization of police is a national issue, for sure. But, seriously, All ...
|Obama's real challenge
Here I go with another opinion. Obama should make his highest priority for the remainder of his term - convert Roger Ailes. Using the power of the Presidency, Obama should do a LBJ and set up ...
|One possible reason why NSA can't be stopped
I am sure this has been considered - and probably dismissed as tinfoil hatism. One possible reason why Obama et. al. can't take legitimate steps to stop NSA abuses is that there are things that ...
|ACA caught in the web
From my perspective, the biggest issue with the ACA was the reliance on and over emphasis of the web interface. Creating a web frontend to a system with so many complex backend interfaces was ...

|Tar Sands, Baby
Percolating in the background, obscured by shutdown hostage shenanigans and gloating over rebublican civil strife, remains the Keystone Pipline and tar sands money pits. Tell, KOSites, has anyone ...
|How about recall Rebubs?
Any KOSites know what it would take to start re-call drives to get some of the problematic tea baggers out of the House? I realize re-calls are always a long shot, but with the right billionaire ...
Can I request a feature for the Daily KOS? Would it be possible to set up my profile to skip posts, threads and diaries those subject is right wing republican candidates, policies or pontificating?
|What's the Real Syrian Deal?
As with many strategies, the real agenda is best hidden by diversion. The biggest the agenda, the bigger the diversion. What bigger or better diversion that bombing and war? So, it is a good time ...
|Back to the Ground Game
It would really be a great time for Obama to call a few more plays for the ground game - particularly in Ohio. Use the campaign organization to turn up the people to let Representatives (i.e. ...
|A Week Without Right
Here is my proposal - Can the DailyKOS Kommunity take a week without posting, mentioning or highlighting anything about the right wing? All diaries, posts, comments exclusively on Democratic ...
|still focused on the wrongs
A while back I pointed out that DailyKOS (and other blogs I frequently read) spend a disproportionate amount of space covering with the Wrongpubicans are doing. At the time, I counted the items on ...
|Obama Bummer Banner Ads
Personally, I am definitely NOT inspired by Obama banner ads recently. Pictured with his wife and daughters next to a message "Help us get re-elected" or some such? Leave the daughters home or in ...
|Daily Republican Cause
Once again today's (2/20/12 3:07pm eastern) Daily KOS reads more like a republican cause. Scanning the entries/items, I see 10 things - not counting the Open Thread or Morning Digest. Of those 10,
I am so sick of non-stop blogging, broadcasting and bloviating about republican candidates, policy and pontificating. This here blog is sometimes a case in point. Riddle me this - why isn't the ...
