DEAR JOHN MCCAIN

Senator, our fathers both fought in World War II on foreign lands — and many of their friends sadly lost their lives far from home.  So many fought for so long and so fiercely in order that no dictatorship or police state demanding “papers please” could ever be established in our land. In 1946 Pastor Martin Niemoller […]

ARIZONA — SIEG HEIL?

Okay, it’s pretty bad for Arizona when even Tom Tancredo says Arizona’s anti-immigrant “show me your papers” law is wrong.  TOM TANCREDO?!? — the ranting Mexican-hating, former congressman from Colorado!  (Tom is most recently infamous for the following sentiment delivered at a Tea Party:  “The President should be sent ‘back’ to Kenya.”)  Add to that:  Joe […]

THAT’S JUST SAD

Well that’s just sad.  Our economy has just shown the first real employment creation in over three years, and all the Republican politicians have to say is, bah-humbug.  It is looking more and more like the Great Recession (which happened under W’s leadership) is now in our national rearview mirror.  This is a hopeful time and a […]
