It’s not much fun being Blue in a Red State. But that pales against the nightmare that is being a progressive in a United States determined to act like World War II is back, one seemingly willing to forget horrific sins of the past. Some evangelical (and otherwise) Christians, usually so quick to scold the […]

The fight is on to buck the establishment and ensure the next President of the United States is of, by, and for We The People.

You may have noticed a certain intermittence of late, in terms of posting and activity. Right now, I am dealing with health issues and trying to earn a living.

Its chair, US Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), is the keynote speaker at tonight’s Tennessee Democratic Party Jackson Day Dinner. It’s […]

I am still on a high following last night’s Nashville stop of the Bernie Sanders campaign’s Tennessee State Volunteer Tour. Nearly 300 people from across the Metro area were on hand at the United Auto Workers Hall to meet with Bernie 2016 staffers and to launch a mission to recruit 5,000 Tennessee volunteers to spread […]

MoveOn has an urgent alert for activists that brings to mind Martin Niemöller. Since the US Supreme Court’s galling 2013 gutting of the Voting Rights Act, a number of states — including Tennessee — immediately leaped to impose Voter ID laws, gerrymandering, and other vile actions to allow systemic racism and classism back into their electoral […]
