    As a much-maligned Optimist, I am thankful for all who find themselves having to disagree with my world view and which encompasses the Trinity of Life, or more appropriately, “Honor Achieved…Honor Acknowledged…Honor Reciprocated.”

  • Ukraine’s future will be one for Corporate Farming and followed with a Free Trade Agreement of some sort. The Only Question remaining is ‘who’ will be the signatory(s) for the FTA, either the European Union, Russia, or the United States/Canada?

  • Historically, the Ukraine has been the “bread basket” for many of these nations, including Russia. By destroying the current and historical “basket” the Oligarchs know that the ‘basket’ can be re-organized in the direction of Big Money, and the farmers will have to follow, otherwise, the farmers’ land loss, will be significant, and no foreseeable ‘help’ will ever arrive from Europe to challenge the Big Money. As such, Europe is the Big Money. And said sadly, Talbott and Hadley, are the cutting edge and have been for these many years, advocating Big Money. There will be no Farmers Uprising.

    Senator Schumer’s Chamber of Commerce Toadiness New York Senator Chuck Schumer is attempting to rewrite his history for being ‘captured’ by the Wall Street crowd as well as the Chamber of Commerce, with his latest pronouncement in which he disagreed with President Obama.  And such Schumer has repeatedly proven himself to be a hypocrite, as well.  a hypocrite [...]

  • The results from this public opinion poll by Latino Decisions, just proves, at least in my mind, that Progressives will continue to adequately accept that Hispanics and Progressives are indelibly connected, and which represents America’s future, despite all the angst and anger that continues to emanate from the Centrists and Conservatives. The only element remaining for Progressives is that the next political round in these political fisticuffs is a “pathway to citizenship.” And when this “pathway” is established into Public Law, the Progressives face a very bright future.

    And if not, Progressives will continue exercise its futility for a lack of coalition-building within the Democratic Party. And in the meantime, the loud-voiced anarchists on the left, will continue to preach about creating and where necessary, co-opting any third parties

    And lastly, Latinos have considerable respect for “the extended family” and far beyond what is reflected into today’s politics.

  • Recommended! It’s quite easy to understand that Hagel would never be a “cheerleader” for President Obama’s neoliberalism meme. Thusly, Hagel was the wrong person to serve as the Secretary of Defense while Obama was unwilling to “contain” the intelligence-gathering outfits that move the politics to a continuation of war in the Middle East. And a [...]

    David, I have to respectfully disagree! Of late, the pessimism expressed by most bloggers on the internet fail to take into account the demographics of the eligible adults who don’t vote. Therefore, a comparative analysis of voters and non-voters would adequately demonstrate that our Democracy is largely dependent on the non-voters. Take, for example, if [...]

    Welcome to Arizona’s version of an implemental law on Martial Law, i.e., that personifies the political opposition of immigration reform, and in which the “rank and file” of Republicans, have shown their delight for Constitutional Conservatism.

    To wit, the following:

    Arizona’s Proposition 122, is a follows:
    Constitutional changes
    Proposition 122 amended Article 2, Section 3 of the Arizona Constitution to read as follows, with the CAPITALIZED and underlined text being added:[3]

    3. Supreme law of the land; authority to exercise sovereign authority against federal action; use of government personnel and financial resources.

    Section 3. A. The Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of the land TO WHICH ALL GOVERNMENT, STATE AND FEDERAL, IS SUBJECT.

    B. TO PROTECT THE PEOPLE’S FREEDOM AND TO PRESERVE THE CHECKS AND BALANCES OF THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION, THIS STATE MAY EXERCISE ITS SOVEREIGN AUTHORITY TO RESTRICT THE ACTIONS OF ITS PERSONNEL AND THE USE OF ITS FINANCIAL RESOURCES TO PURPOSES THAT ARE CONSISTENT WITH THE CONSTITUTION BY DOING ANY OF THE FOLLOWING:

    1. PASSING AN INITIATIVE OR REFERENDUM PURSUANT TO ARTICLE IV, PART 1, SECTION 1.

    2. PASSING A BILL PURSUANT TO ARTICLE IV, PART 2 AND ARTICLE V, SECTION 7.

    3. PURSUING ANY OTHER AVAILABLE LEGAL REMEDY.

    C. IF THE PEOPLE OR THEIR REPRESENTATIVES EXERCISE THEIR AUTHORITY PURSUANT TO THIS SECTION, THIS STATE AND ALL POLITICAL SUBDIVISIONS OF THIS STATE ARE PROHIBITED FROM USING ANY PERSONNEL OR FINANCIAL RESOURCES TO ENFORCE, ADMINISTER OR COOPERATE WITH THE DESIGNATED FEDERAL ACTION OR PROGRAM.[6]

    And if you’ll notice, the “digs” are in 3C, and “or cooperate with the designated federal action or program.”

    And yet, in this long haul of legal theory, it will take the SCOTUS the next twenty years to effectively dismantle this Proposition 122.

    Today, here in Arizona, state coffers receives well over $275 million annually from undocumented immigrant spending on property taxes, excise takes and sales taxes. In the meantime, the Republican-controlled state legislature is facing a $1.2 billion deficit education spending, not counting on the current pattern of spending for law enforcement and child protective services.

    And given the number of Republican states and where both the Governor and the State Legislatures are in Republicans hands, your future will come at you via another version of Proposition 122.

    When it comes to any smart or snazzy one-liners, there are none in me, given the seriousness located in Comprehensive Immigration Reform. To wit, my fellow Progressives residing outside of Arizona, truly have their heads-up-their asses.

    Take, for example, Arizona’s Republican rank and file passed, on November the Fourth, their Proposition 122. This now Constitutional Law establishes “state’s rights” and which either circumvents or does an “end-run” on America’s federalism. Thusly, the Governor’s Office or the State Legislature can implement “martial law” and in a manner where the National Guard ability at law enforcement has valid “authority” and where this authority can be permitted to “peek” into your bedroom window and at addressing the spite of your neighbor’s repeated requests.

    As such, Arizona’s SB1070 was just another “chump change” version of America’s white Democracy.

    As a staunch Democrat, I have not been a big fan of President Obama, since our America thoroughly enjoys its predicament for being a nation of Two America’s, and yet, my fellow Democrats continue to avoid the notional that back in the mid-1980′s, the newly nationalized Democrats went on their journey for catering to the [...]

    Today’s demographic “majority” of Progressives continue to advocate for universal health care in the form for an “empowered individual” selecting participation in a)Medicare, b)VA Medical Systemic, and c)Native American Medical Systemic.

    Thusly, the Question Remaining: Can a Republican-controlled SCOTUS render its decision that ‘taxing’ from the General Budget, is deemed ‘unconstitutional’?

    Here in the Sonoran Desert, ObamaCare and Expanded Medicaid, are seen as identical. And thanks to the many Democrats in Arizona’s state legislature and where their critical votes has led to over 200,000 persons being now enrolled. And all will tell you “it’s great!” given that the Emergency Room is not where you want to be at, late at night.

    And it will be a Happy Day when PEW shows up here in Arizona and done in order to conduct one of its ‘snazzy’ Surveys? Unfortunately, PEW is a long way’s off for measuring a sizable portion of America’s “minorities.”
    Hell, getting PEW to show-up on the Navajo Rez or of similar communities, will take a Presidential Executive Order and the Republicans in the House would be complaining and comparable to a “blizzard of protest.” If Ronald Reagan couldn’t show up on the Rez during his eight-year tenure, no Republican-oriented commercial outfit tied to the Wall Street Crowd, will be permitted to do so, and PEW qualifies for such an ‘honor.’

  • In a wide-ranging discussion on the “results” of last week’s Election, much has been written and said, and yet, these results are the furthering outcome that came from the gerrymandering that takes place every decade (2000-2001) when the congressional districts are geographically designed, either in favor of the Republicans, or in favor of the Democrats, [...]

    Excellent Commentary!! From here in the Sonoran Desert, the history of European-based theft of Indigenous Lands, speaks to a much larger effort than just slavery, and yet, in today’s politics, “minorities” will be the primary determinant of who can call themselves “progressives.” And given this dilemma of a demographic “encroachment” upon America’s white Democracy, changes [...]

  • I much appreciate this ‘chickenshit’ story, and yet, I have a different view.

    To wit, Progressives are being treated as the Caboose relative to the Israelis and Palestinians. And of course, Obama knows this too.

    As such, here is my offering “bid” and done on behalf of America’s unwilling Progressives to even consider raising the political stakes.

    Of course, I’m still waiting for my fellow Progressive to join me in my Dictat. To wit, the USA needs to petition the United Nations and done in order to craft a “commission” charged with defining the geographical boundary between these two political entities. And once the boundary is defined and done from a historical standard, the full UN (excluding the Security Council) would then take a vote for approving the results determined by the Commission, and thusly, the “boundary” would be placed on the ballot, respectively and for consideration by Israel’s and Palestine’s electorate. And if either political entity, refuses, the entity loses all “nationhood” benefits as well as international investment from foreign governments or from the private sector.

    Sadly, I am still hearing the crickets.

  • Here in Arizona, the three seats being challenged by Republicans, all favor scrapping Social Security and Medicare.

    Therefore, the social safety net consisting of Social Security and Medicare, if scrapped by the Republicans, makes fools out of everyone and who has a desire to vote, regardless of any third party membership.
