José Castañeda for Libertarian Party of California Secretary

I've met José Castañeda several times, back when I was more active in libertarian circles. (Not so much since 2009.) José and I both reside in Los Angeles, so our paths crossed in local as well as state and national LP activism.JoséShow More Summary

Rand Paul: U.S. Won Iraq War

My enthusiasm for Ron Paul never extended to his son, Rand. While I was hoping that Senator Rand Paul might morph into a younger Ron, I never expected it. Ron enjoyed being Dr. No, a lone voice in the Congressional and establishment wilderness. Show More Summary

P.S. to "The Consummate Liar..."

About two minutes ago, I watched (on DemocracyNow.org) a replay of Obama on a News commentary show roundtable discussion---on Hardball on MSNBC---in which the President stated, "Everything I do has been focused on how do we make sure the Middle Class is getting a fair deal. Show More Summary

The Consummate Liar Strikes Again

Obama's lies have become so blatant that even a person who is totally apathetic and ignorant of politics must be able to detect them... at least, I would think so. Following are just a few of his latest attempts at deception. Feel free to laugh, cry, or sigh... Show More Summary

National Politics in the USA is Utterly Disgusting...and Harmful

Again, I emphasize that I'm not a Republican or a Democrat... thank "God". With the world's greatest library (the internet) at our fingertips and a fairly good grasp of both History and Logic, it's beyond my comprehension how anyone could belong to a limited, specific political group.

Part II: "Fixing" Our Government

Below is my response to an email I received from some friends. In their email, they talked about the right to vote, and the fact that they weren't clear on what my solution was to the problem of our government (& economy) mess. I suspect that you guys still think the Rotten System can be corrected from within the system. Show More Summary

So, How Do We Fix Our Government?

In my opinion, there is no magic bullet to fix things, but... if we don't vote, much more can be done than just waiting for the collapse. Even if people do vote, much more can be done. There's a huge obstacle, though... PROPAGANDA from Neoliberals (in general, the highest levels of Repubs & Dems). Show More Summary

Iceland & Greece Have it Right

The answer to that has several facets; the solution to the problem must be based on History, Logic, and plain common sense...as follows.1. Show More Summary

Christianity and “the rich”

Mustela nivalis  The Bible is “an anti-socialist document”. This is one of the quintessential conclusions of Gary North’s multi-volume economic exegesis. However, how does this assertion equate with some biblical statements, especially in the New Testament, which are rather critical … Continue reading ?

On What Legitimate, Ethical Authority?

What legitimate, ethical authority do the highest levels of our Fed Gov't have to...1. launch a pre-emptive war? [as in the case of the 2003 Iraq invasion by the USA];2. tell Iran that it can't have a nuclear program? [when Israel has ~ 200 nuclear weapons, and the USA is developing or upgrading so-called "tactical" nukes];3. Show More Summary

US Combat CONTINUES in Afghanistan

Not too long ago, President Obama announced that the US combat mission in Afghanistan "has ended". Like many of his utterances, this one also proved to be untrue. It wasn't long after the announcement that the NYT reported this: Obama...Show More Summary

Obama's Orwellian Use of Cognitive Dissonance

Cognitive Dissonance is the uncomfortable feeling caused by holding two contradictory ideas in your mind simultaneously. It causes people to change their beliefs or behaviors, or to somehow justify the contradictory ideas...in order to achieve some peace of mind. Show More Summary

KUDOS to the New Leader of Greece!

Comic-Tragic SOTU Address and GOP Response

https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=Pw_AAzS-dZI I find this very funny...and tragic... at the same time. It's my critique of Obama's State of the Union Address and the response by Senator Ernst. Not just my opinion. Be Well

My disquiet at liberty without obligation to others

I have made it clear that I view a common culture as vital to any sort of functioning society that can maintain a separate existence to the state. A real society has a specific religious heritage that influences culture and … Continue reading ?

Guantanamo, Exceptionalism, Neoliberals, and the Feds

In 1898, our Gov't stole Guantanamo at gunpoint. That was during the time when "we" were "saving" various parts of the world from............................ Spain. In 1903, Cuba essentially was forced (at gunpoint) to sign a perpetual lease, one of the terms being that our Gov't was to pay Cuba $2,000 a year... Show More Summary

OBAMA SHOULD BE IMPEACHED...ASAP

Not long ago, the NYT Editorial Board came to the conclusion that Obama's ISIS War is unconstitutional. They are correct; there is no question whatsoever about that. Violating the U.S. Constitution is an impeachable offense. Unfortunately...Show More Summary

High-Ranking Repubs & Dems: Keep Spitting on the Constitution

That way, soon it will be so soaked in sputum that you'll be able to tear it up and throw it away much more easily. You've all been spitting on it for so many decades that most of you have a fairly good aim by now, so perhaps before long it simply will dissolve of its own accord... Show More Summary
