In Some Events the US Should Not Go for the Gold

February 6, 2014 by Living Liberally

Politics, government, healthcare, news, political news

As the Olympics begin in a country that is a leader in silencing dissent and imprisoning citizens, it would be a good time for the United States to close Guantanamo and reform policing tactics.

In the world spotlight stands Russia, a champion in spying on its own people, while the US confronts its own NSA excesses and could change course on domestic surveillance.

Putin’s nation is a winner’s circle for oligarchs, but America competes with its growing inequality -- though it would do better to not be a victor in wealth stratification and economic injustice.

Americans may win our share of Olympic medals but in authoritarianism and corporatocracy let’s allow Russia to come in first — there’s no need for America to go for the gold.

The Polar Vortex of US Politics

January 23, 2014 by Living Liberally

Politics, government, healthcare, news, political news

While another deep freeze engulfs the country, a deeper freeze permeates US diplomacy, as critics cast a chill on negotiations with Iran and create slippery conditions for Syria talks.

The weather shut down DC, but even if it hadn't, the GOP has effectively shut down congress closing down work on jobs, immigration, guns through distractions, deceptions and detours.

As icy roads snarl traffic as bad as Christie could, the President is caught in his own series of jams, gummed up over revelations of NSA wrongdoing, and road-raging to ram through a bad trade deal.

Americans know the current Polar Vortex will pass. Yet the Washington Polar Vortex has no end in site.

Warm up your soul, raise up your voice, lift up a pint to toast and talk, share and care, chat and cheers at your local progressive social club.

When Politics and Religion DO Mix

It’s something I do about once a week: share a quote from the Dalai Lama with my Facebook friends. Typically, this most revered Buddhist has his people post something about curbing one’s selfish desires and living a decent life. Often, the Dalai Lama implores people to use their minds. Think, for God’s sake, just think before acting, he dictates. If half of our politicians and their advisors actually listened, how much better off would our nation be!

Another religious leader who is quickly becoming important beyond his parishioners is the new pope, Francis. In his eighty-four page document released earlier this season, he ordered his church to become Christ-like once more, and address the issues of greed, abuse and poverty. Additionally, he has chosen to not advance conservative extremists in the church. Pope Francis states reformist intentions as clearly as a noontime cathedral bell.    Read more

Washington Has Joined The Jersey Bridge-and-Tunnel Crowd

January 16, 2014 by Living Liberally

Politics, government, healthcare, news, political news

Chris Christie's not the only one with a bridge to sell you: in Washington, some argue the NSA never went to far, that Food Stamps promote a culture of dependency and that we'll get better internet without net neutrality.

Christie's tactics may seem straight out of the Sopranos, but it is Obama strong-arming an abusive trade treaty, the House GOP gunning down unemployment relief and a Florida man shooting a movie theater texter.

There is something rotten in the Garden State, but also something poisonous in our nation's capital, where a push for Iran sanctions outweigh calls for talks and where a mediocre spending bill is called a victory.

Christie may be making national headlines, turning bridges into jams and tunneling himself deeper, but it seems that DC is now playing by Jersey rules and all Washington has jointed the Bridge-and-Tunnel crowd.

Laugh at the absurdity or cry at the insanity -- with a drink in hand and good company at your side at your local progressive social club.
