The Dangers of Reserving Compassion For The Few And Not The Many

I see a lot of people writing about how we should, post-election results, allow ourselves the time to – and recognize the importance of being able to – embrace feelings of mourning, of anger and disappointment, of frustration and sadness. I couldn’t agree more. From the deepest recesses of my soul. These are real feelings attachedContinue reading “The Dangers of Reserving Compassion For The Few And Not The Many”

When They Go Low, So Do We: The Final Presidential Debate

I came to this final presidential debate not looking for more proof that Trump was despicable. I came looking for more reasons to feel some measure of hope about voting for Hillary. And at the beginning of the debate, I got some of that. But it didn’t last long. You see, this is where itContinue reading “When They Go Low, So Do We: The Final Presidential Debate”


In the continued expression of ideals, values, disappointments and frustrations being shared and vented across the internet and elsewhere surrounding America’s presidential election, I have found many voices calling again and again for unity. But not unity as a country. Unity for the party. The problem I see with this that I don’t think isContinue reading “IS THERE MORE TO BEING A DEMOCRAT THAN TOWING THE PARTY LINE?

Limbaugh Links School Bus Fight To “Obama’s America”

An African-American boy beat up a Caucasian boy the other day on a school bus in St. Louis. The beating was caught on tape and made headlines.

Obama-Haters: Don’t Believe For A Second This Isn’t About Race

The first thing most anti-Obama people will tell you is that this is not an issue of race. They’ll tell you that claiming it to be about race is just another way in which the liberals are trying to distract the public from their “true” arguments. “Just because we don’t agree with the president doesn’tContinue reading “Obama-Haters: Don’t Believe For A Second This Isn’t About Race”

Author Frank Schaeffer on Obama

The Right wish to discredit Barack Obama any way they can. And members of the Left have started squawking that they’re losing faith in Obama. All in the President’s first six months in office. I expect it from the Right, but I find it a sad impatience coming from once-strong Obama supporters. Are we reallyContinue reading “Author Frank Schaeffer on Obama”

Guns & Rallies: Just Because You Can, Doesn’t Mean You Should

Is this a movement brewing or the death-throws of a dying party? I’m not sure. I’m hoping the latter. It seems gun-rights activists are showing up in droves at Rallies and Town Halls where Obama is speaking. We all know about the guy who showed up with a legal loaded handgun at the New HampshireContinue reading “Guns & Rallies: Just Because You Can, Doesn’t Mean You Should”

Racist Anti-Obama Sentiment Inevitable

Did anyone really think America could elect a half-black president and not see the racism inherent both here and around the world rear its ugly head? Well, what may seem quite discouraging may, in fact, be a good start toward moving beyond this ancient brand of intolerance. Allowing these backwards thinkers out into the lightContinue reading “Racist Anti-Obama Sentiment Inevitable”

This Is What A President Is

How wide is the gap between our last president and our current. That is not a question, but a statement. Listening to Obama address Congress and the nation this evening was another fresh and welcome reminder that the man who ran for office is the same man we elected. That much of what is usuallyContinue reading “This Is What A President Is”
