December 2nd, 2014 · Comments Off on American Propagandists in a New Age of Propaganda · Corporations and Industry, Culture, Democracy, Fascism, Human Rights, Lobbying, Media, obstruction, Politics, Populism, Wall Street, wars and militarism

Propaganda is basically a lie with a purpose. It is a lie, or as some say, “the Big Lie,” the constant repetition of a message designed to influence a large number of people to act in a certain way. It is the opposite of impartial factual delivery of information. It can also be deliberate manipulation […]

We are in a very serious time in the history of this country. Although it may not seem so to many, about 80% of the population are doing relatively well. But it may be a false spring. It is true that 20% of the population pay about 70% of the income taxes in this country. […]

If you talk to leading progressives these days, you’ll be sure to hear this message: The Democratic Party should embrace the economic populism of New York Mayor-elect Bill DeBlasio and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren. Such economic populism, they argue, should be the guiding star for Democrats heading into 2016. But the new, Right Wing Democrats […]

Values, Voters, Loonies and Liberty

October 16th, 2013 · Comments Off on Values, Voters, Loonies and Liberty · Health Care, Human Rights, Lobbying, Politics, Populism, The Budget

The Tea Party Republicans recently released some video from the Voter Values Summit. One can only wonder at the thinking process, if any, in making their conclusions–even factoring in partisan politics.

The Son-in-law Senator from Wisconsin

February 23rd, 2012 · 1 Comment · Capitalism, Economics, Media, Politics, Populism, taxes, The Budget

The nice thing about “stupid” is that you don’t have to make anything up or manipulate anything or try to exaggerate anything…stupid is as stupid does. Rarely, however, do public men who are so stupid that you wonder how they can tie their shoes allow their stupidity to show up in the clear, bright glare […]

Nazi Is Not Always a Bad Word.

March 28th, 2011 · Comments Off on Nazi Is Not Always a Bad Word. · Politics, wars and militarism

Not if it is used as a warning. Not if it describes a group out to get you. Not if it is the truth. When would we call someone a Nazi? Well, it is done all the time by those who don’t really mean it and have no basis for saying it. But when it […]
