Churchill: Another WW II Myth Along With Hiroshima

0 Comments | Posted March 18, 2008 | 12:03 PM

I had the good fortune to be brought up in a family that lived through the 1st half of the 20th century. Unlike my baby boomer schoolmates, I was able to challenge the propaganda that was fed to them during the Cold War. I have spent almost my entire adult...

MSNBC MORNING JOE REPORTING ON REV. WRIGHT: IS THERE A DOUBLE STANDARD? YES!!!!!

0 Comments | Posted March 18, 2008 | 8:50 AM

The choice of Joe Scarborough by MSNBC to host a morning show is an example of political cowardice by Dan Abrams its program director. Other than Keith Olbermann, MSNBCs lineup is decidedly right of center. Scarborough along with lapdogs Willie Geist, and Mika Brzezinski are over the top on the...

God Damn America's Media: Rev. Wright's Comment On Hiroshima

0 Comments | Posted March 16, 2008 | 4:12 PM

Rev. Wright's comment about his belief that Hiroshima was part of America's disregard for human life led to his comment: "The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing 'God Bless America.' No, no, no, God damn America, that's in...

What Should Obama Do About Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright?

0 Comments | Posted March 14, 2008 | 7:49 PM

The latest attack on Obama is about his former pastor and friend Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. The sermon he made 7 years ago after 9/11 suggested that U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East was the primary reason for the attack. There are a large number of people...

Super Delegates 911 Alert: This Is An Emergency

0 Comments | Posted March 14, 2008 | 4:36 PM

I was wondering what new information the uncommitted super delegates need to make their decision now and stop the bleeding. These uncommitted delegates need to show more logic and political courage. Hillary cannot win the pledged delegate vote. It is also unlikely that she will win the cumulative popular vote....

Hey Super Delegates: The Total Popular Vote Is Meaningless

0 Comments | Posted March 13, 2008 | 4:40 PM

The latest in the Clinton "shell game" relates to the idea that the uncommitted super delegates should vote for the candidate who wins the cumulative popular vote in the primaries. The primaries will be concluded in June. That would mean that the cumulative popular vote total would be measured over...

Anatomy Of A Sex Crime: The Spitzer Case

0 Comments | Posted March 11, 2008 | 5:20 PM

The Eliot Spitzer scandal is difficult for many rational people to understand. How could he have been so careless? The real question should be: What is the psychological pathology that caused this self destructive behavior? Like many crimes of morality, the pathology of the brain is usually the last suspect....

The 3 Faces Of Hillary: Which Hillary Will Answer The 3AM Phone Call?

0 Comments | Posted March 7, 2008 | 11:46 AM

As we have painfully seen, Hillary has exhibited at least 3 personalities in her campaign against Obama:

1. The sweet sensitive Hillary that is honored to be running against Obama.

2. The hard working Hillary that knows how to get the trains to run on time.

3. The super aggressive...

Dee Dee Myers Is Wrong: It's Not About Gender

0 Comments | Posted February 25, 2008 | 4:53 PM

Dee Dee Myers suggested on the Today Show that some of the animous about Hillary has to do with gender. She even blamed Hillary's Iraq vote on the perception that a women has to over compensate about national security. I respectfully disagree.

Gender has nothing to do with the ant-Hillary...

Kosovo's Nazi Past: Historical Perspective

0 Comments | Posted February 21, 2008 | 2:45 PM

I was very much against the Clinton Administration's intervention in Kosovo. The history of genocide by the Kosovites against the Serbs and Jews is not well known because of the Cold War. The United States and the Wall Street pirates that supported the Nazi war effort have created a myth...

Bill Clinton Is Out Of Control

0 Comments | Posted February 18, 2008 | 5:49 AM

Bill's behavior this weekend gives me pause. It seems to me that he is in deep emotional trouble. He may realize that he may have destroyed his wife's campaign. This would be the second time he has hurt Hillary. I know he wants to compensate for the deep hurt he...

What's Wrong With The Clintons: The Emperor Has No Clothes

0 Comments | Posted February 16, 2008 | 12:55 AM

There are so many things that have disappointed me about the human condition in the last 7 years. But, I have not lost my faith in the noble destiny of mankind. It is true that the reptilian part of the brain has dominated most of human history. The Clintons have...

What Motivates White Female Democrats?

0 Comments | Posted February 14, 2008 | 5:19 PM

My last post, White Women Supporting Hillary: A Paradox at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/sheldon-drobny/white-woman-supporting-hi_b_86448.html was really a query rather than a conclusion. Many of the comments from women attacked me for being a sexist. That is not relevant. What I was asking in that post is whether white female Democrats are supporting...

White Woman Supporting Hillary: A Paradox

0 Comments | Posted February 13, 2008 | 11:01 AM

The choice for the Presidency should be all about competence and character. As M L King said: "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of...

Hillary Should Concede

0 Comments | Posted February 12, 2008 | 10:21 PM

As I predicted in my February 6th post, the mathematics are now clear http://www.huffingtonpost.com/sheldon-drobny/hillary-is-the-underdog_b_85387.html. Unless she wins Ohio, Texas, and Pennsylvania by a 60/40 margin, the pledged delegate race is over. The only way the Clintons can save their legacy is to face reality and concede for the benefit...

Hillary Is Not Losing: Bill and The DLC Are

0 Comments | Posted February 12, 2008 | 2:32 PM

I know the Clinton family pretty well and can speak very highly of her and her capabilities. Unfortunately for her, she adopted the Bill/DLC approach to politics. And I told her that in 2000 when she ran for the Senate.

During the 2000 election I attended a Hillary fundraiser in...

In Defense Of David Shuster

0 Comments | Posted February 11, 2008 | 5:01 AM

David Schuster in my opinion is one of the best reporters working for the corporate media. He is a hard-hitting reporter that speaks his mind. He criticizes members of both political parties. During the Bush Administration, he has been appropriately critical of the numerous problems of the Bush Presidency. He...

Fair Solution To Delegate Fiasco

0 Comments | Posted February 7, 2008 | 10:07 PM

The Democrats in 1972 made the primary system truly democratic with a small D. The landslide loss by McGovern created the ridiculous super delegate category that was supposed to prevent the voters from making a so-called foolish decision. However, giving the party hacks a big vote in a close primary...
