I just posted an article to The Watch Alert archive concerning Cindy Sheehan. I’ve been watching Cindy Sheehan’s protest outside of President Bush’s ranch in Texas with great interest. This article finally compelled me to comment on this. So far Sheehan’s protest has been informative concerning the dynamic of American culture and politics. For instance,… Continue reading Mother’s War Protest Gaining Momentum In Crawford
A lot of people were surprised by columnist Robert Novak’s recent hissy fit on CNN’s Inside Politics, where he said, on air, “That’s bulls**t” and walked off the set. Some people were not surprised. Novak is been under a lot of pressure because his Conservative buddy Karl Rove has been taking a lot of flack… Continue reading Robert Novak Cracking Under Pressure?
It should surprise no one that President Bush would like to see Creationism, which of late has been disguised as a “scientific theory” called Intelligent Design, taught in schools as an alternative to Darwinism. One hallmark of Fundamentalist thought is a basic misunderstanding of the word “theory” in regard to science. They regard a scientific… Continue reading Bush Wants “Intelligent Design” Taught In Schools
I don’t think many people are surprised that President Bush used a recess appointment to install John Bolton into his position as ambassador to the United Nations. As many people have noted, Bolton has been a key player in the Conservative assault against the American people.

She said; “People are fed up and tired with the extreme left-wing radical fringe — America haters, family haters, Christian haters.” Apparently this woman is so consumed by her hatred of Michael Moore and Democrats that she… Continue reading Michael Moore Film Fest Draws Competition

For those who don’t know, Valerie Plame is the wife of former ambassador Joe Wilson, who ran afoul of the Bush Administration… Continue reading Whatever Happened to Principles?
I was somewhat surprised that I didn’t hyperventilate when I heard that Justice Sandra Day O’Connor had resigned from her seat on the Supreme Court. You might say that this is the beginning of the end of our Civil and Religious freedoms in the United States. But however strongly we might feel about the dangers… Continue reading Sandra Day O’Connor Throws Us to the Wolves
The Federal Government’s war against the American people stumbled into the mainstream press of late. Well, that was the intention, of course. The DEA went after some of the pot clubs in California that provided medical marijuana for patients (the clubs are legal in California, but are illegal according to Federal law). This, of course,… Continue reading Reality Sets In For Marijuana Advocates
I haven’t addressed this issue lately, and some people have been wondering why. Well, it wasn’t because I didn’t catch it. Quite frankly, I’ve been waiting to see how it went. For those who don’t know, it went badly. The House of Representatives approved a Constitutional Amendment to ban burning the American flag. This will… Continue reading Flag Burning Amendment Should Be A Non-Issue
