Stupid Questions -- What is a Democrat.

I am trying to figure out what being 'Democrat' means...If it means that I have to support someone who got us into Iraq to remain a Democrat - that is too high of a price to pay.

Abstinence for Delegates

Abstain from Hillary. Your loyalty to Hillary cannot be questioned, but you allow the torch to be passed to a new generation by saying nothing. If you were elected as delegate BEFORE the Inspector General's Report you can say you withheld judgment until further information has become available. With a clear mind you can abstain.

Stand Up - Turn Around

Sanders is the candidate who has taken the mantle of Dr. King in this election. A large silent non-violent protest broadcasts louder than a lot of screaming and yelling. If you don't stand for something - you will fall for anything...

The Green Door to the Left

A Green Party convention concluding with Sanders' Army marching onto the field would easily eclipse the 15% threshold required by the Presidential Debate Commission to put him on a debate stage to duke it out on an even playing field against both Clinton and Trump.

'Jury Duty on Steroids' or 'Senators in the Can'

Why can't the senators be forced to perform their civic obligations? I think I have a movie concept here. Something like "Jury Duty on Steroids" or "Senators in the Can."

Something About the President's Legacy

Thinking about how the President has acted during this year's primary. He's going to let Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders slug it out. I guess that is ok.

Path to Victory

With the populations of both Democrats and Republicans shrinking and the rise of the Fed-Up-Opted-Out Electorate, it would seem that if Sanders can battle even in closed primary states and caucus states, he can run the table in the open primary states.

A New Message for Bernie

When Bernie supporters look across the divide at what most of the GOP is selling during the debates, they see common ground. Every one of their debates is an opportunity to say, "We need to stop Hillary." The candidates say it in every way possible, that is their message.

Forget the Civil War. It is over. It is killing us. We, all Americans, need statues and honors to the smartest and best children of the South.

Commercial 2 starts out with images from Congress finalizing the Iraq War Vote in 2002. Sound of Hillary saying "Yea." Cut to artillery piece firing.

Clinton Commercial Series -- Thank You Hillary

Joe The Nerd Ferraro | Posted 06.14.2015 | Politics
Joe The Nerd Ferraro

If the Democratic Party makes acceptance of Hillary Clinton a litmus test for my membership, well, I am an American first. There are a number of reasons why I will not vote for her. It may be easier to convey these reasons using a series of commercials that can be produced by an opponent.

School Choice: Athletics or Academics

It is time to question the resources being outlaid to sports programs when elementary educational programs are being curtailed.

The Fox Tax

Joe The Nerd Ferraro

Whenever Fox wants to bust on the shoes of unions they always bring up how union dues are collected. Unwilling members of the union are forced to donate to a union they don't like... It kinda sounds like cable consumers are forced to donate to television stations they don't like.

There are real people really hurting. Turn on our customized media and we see what might spin into a race war over men being killed and the accused walking away. No matter what sources of media you are using, we are seeing it.

Stupid Questions - Ferguson Decision

If a cop works for a locality and the DA is responsible for the quality of the cop's work, how can one prosecute a subordinate without prosecuting yourself?

With Out Papers

We have an immigration issue here today. People will risk their lives to get here to become part of the bigger, louder American Family. The problem isn't that these people are coming here -- the problem is we have part of our family who have forgotten what it was like to be Italian (or whatever group YOU come from).

Why I Cannot Vote Democratic This Year

If Governor Wolf succeeds in keeping his campaign promise of using taxes on frackers to fund the schools he will be doing more harm than good. How do we get rid of the fracking industry in Pennsylvania if fracking is institutionalized?

Punch a Hole in the Rocky Steps?

If you are from Philly, they are not the Rocky Steps, but the Art Museum Steps. The steps were there long before Sly Stallone had Garrett Brown use a prototype of the Steadicam to run up the steps for breathless montages of panoramic views.

Putting term limits on The Supreme Court as an amendment is not a new idea. How do we flesh it out?

The Eric Cantorectomy -- Political Football 2014

Joe The Nerd Ferraro | Posted 08.11.2014 | Politics
Joe The Nerd Ferraro

The red line at the GOP's 45 yard line reflects the possession of the GOP's 55 percent of the voters. The Democrats are going to need to get across midfield ideologically to make a dent.

None of the Pennsylvania Democrats running for governor want to stop fracking.

The Fracker Call

Joe The Nerd Ferraro

We are getting down to the primary in Pennsylvania. Since I am still a Democrat, I get calls from the party trying to win my support for their candidates. All the Democratic candidates are clamoring to bring the money back to the public schools. And all of them want to frack to fund the schools.

I wonder if Desean Jackson could get a good lawyer somewhere? He could see about getting the rest of his 4.8 million 'characters' back from the Eagles. Should there be a price paid for defaming and attacking a guy's reputation?
