     Where  'do' Democrats stand on illegal immigration? It's hard to tell. They kind of seem to skirt the issue. It's like they think it will go away if they avoid the subject. At least Republicans seem to realize the importance of confronting it head on. I think it...

     Republicans must be shaking in their boots. They are trying to talk themselves into believing they have a strong field of candidates but are desperately latching onto Rick Perry, Michelle Bachman and Mitt Romney as viable to win against Obama in 2012. In the meantime they...

The debt ceiling debacle isn't about debt any more than all the talk about balancing the budget is about the deficit. There is absolutely no ned to be in a crisis. The protracted stalemate has only reached crisis proportions because the president has allowed Congress to be diverted from raising the...

Run for the hills, everybody! Armageddon is imminent! The sky is beyond falling; it's anvil-plummeting onto our heads so fast that the clouds are whistling the love theme from the movie "2012." The U.S. economy is about to melt down like a popsicle left on a Palm Springs picnic table...

There has been a lot said about the enthusiasm and passion of the Tea Party Movement.  It has been stoked as the “people’s movement” consisting of conservatives, democrats and independents.  All of whom are acting out of nothing else but “genuine” concern for the country and its direction.  However...

                Social conservatism is a threat to freedom and liberty. You can not politically espouse social conservatism and claim to be either a strict constitutionalist or a defender of individual rights and freedoms.  To levy such a claim is both illogical and incongruous. Time and time again...

  See, I am in a sort of confused state of mind. When I glanced at a report about Donald trump discussing birth certificates, I thought he wanted to know where Christopher Columbus was born. Then I figured out it was something about birthers and images of village elders who help women in...

Sending the President out to make a deal is like telling Lady Gaga to fix the trade deficit for you. The results won't be pretty. Though he's erroneously been portrayed as a master Chicago-type fixer, he's proved over and over again that he's one of the very worst negotiators west of Iraq. If Obama...

    I hadn’t lived in Thailand long when I got a call  from a woman I greatly respected. She was very active with the Democrats Abroad Thailand organization. “I need a strong candidate to run for the position of Country Chair for Democrats Abroad Thailand (DAT), would you be interested?”...
