Privacy Revisited

(77) Comments | Posted August 16, 2011 | 12:55 PM

For the average American citizen, the notion of privacy is extinct. Any information you put out into cyberspace could come back to bite you in the ass. Retail stores sell your purchase history to third parties without your consent. Social media sites and search engines act as data mines, storing...

Why I Asked Casey Anthony to Pose for Hustler

(533) Comments | Posted August 3, 2011 | 5:11 PM

A lot of people are upset about my offer to Casey Anthony to pose in Hustler Magazine. I can understand being upset by the verdict but it doesn't give anyone the right to dismantle the whole justice system. I've said publicly that I agree with the verdict, but...

Reflections on Independence Day

(185) Comments | Posted July 3, 2011 | 6:28 PM

On Independence Day, I ask you to think about how many freedoms we have and how many we're in danger of losing. Every day, the right wing moralists are trying to chip away at our basic civil liberties. They're trying to restrict women's access to healthcare, strip workers of their...

A Warning From Thomas Jefferson

(407) Comments | Posted June 30, 2011 | 6:04 PM

When it came to setting up our government, Thomas Jefferson had three concerns: tyranny of kings, tyranny of theocrats, and tyranny of the wealthy. For the time being we seem to be safe from kings and theocrats. We are not, however, safe from the super-rich.

Thomas Jefferson is believed...

Republican BS

(299) Comments | Posted May 31, 2011 | 5:25 PM

The Republicans criticized President Barack Obama for being indecisive, for delegating and for being weak on foreign policy. Obama proved them wrong by personally taking charge of the hunt for Osama bin Laden. He picked one of four plans to neutralize the al Qaeda leader (arguably the most difficult one),...

Why I Am Donating $50,000 to WikiLeaks' Defense Fund

(563) Comments | Posted December 17, 2010 | 9:13 AM

Let's get something straight: Julian Assange is a journalist. You can argue that he is not practicing journalism the way you think it should be practiced -- releasing classified U.S. State Department documents -- but he's a journalist nonetheless. And for many of us he's a hero.

I'm sick...

A Warning for Obama

(83) Comments | Posted November 15, 2010 | 8:37 AM

You are in danger of becoming a one-term president!

Your attempt to reach across the aisle these past two years in the face of ongoing contempt and ridicule from the Republican Party has made you seem weak and foolish.

It cost you a Democratic majority in the House...

What Ever Happened to Equal Rights for Women?

(990) Comments | Posted September 8, 2010 | 2:04 PM

Women didn't get the right to vote until 1920. Since then, nothing has changed for women; 35 years ago the Equal Rights Amendment (preventing discrimination based on sex) was defeated when it was ratified by only 35 of the 38 states needed for passage. Any chance of equal pay for...

Common Sense 2009

(1312) Comments | Posted August 20, 2009 | 8:15 PM

The American government -- which we once called our government -- has been taken over by Wall Street, the mega-corporations and the super-rich. They are the ones who decide our fate. It is this group of powerful elites, the people President Franklin D. Roosevelt called "economic royalists," who choose our...
