Liberals, here’s our chance, if we don’t blow it…

I wonder how many liberals realize the opportunity we have right now to re-shape the politics of this country into something we can live with? All we really have to do is to kick the Republican Party out of office; … Continue reading

Progressives: Watch Your Mouths!

For a group of people as seemingly obsessed with the use of language and memes as the professional left pretends to be, they don’t seem to do it very well. They liberally (pun intended) sprinkle their language with many phrases … Continue reading
