Ferguson and ‘A Clockwork Orange’ America

Over forty years ago, Stanley Kubrick made a film called "A Clockwork Orange" that was so controversial he chose to pull it from release in the United Kingdom. This is not only where the story was set, but the movie itself made.

Rick Perry Love the Troops, Hates Feeding Them

Texas has a new refugee crisis on the border, and this time it's not a bunch of kids. When Rick Perry deployed the National Guard to the border, he remembered to go on Fox News, pose with assault weapons, and brag to Republicans in Iowa. But he forgot to make sure that our National Guardsmen and women got paid and were fed. Now they are turning to food banks to eat, underscoring how Perry's big fake invasion of south Texas is really just a political put-up job.

Obama Has No Middle East Strategy? Good!

Last week President Obama admitted that his administration has not worked out a strategy on how to deal with the emergence of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) as a dominant force in the Middle East. However, as ISIS continues its march through Syria and Iraq, many in the US administration believe it is, in the words of Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, a threat "beyond anything we have ever seen."

The Two Tooth Advantage

The plume of a great doom now looms. Talking about that wonderfully hideous first Monday in September- Labor Day. Yeah, sure, it's a big time, bona fide holiday, but being the last warm wet splash of summer- so bittersweet. Like the final free Continental breakfast buffet before checking out of a five-star hotel.

Don’t Dare Call Them Socialists

I recently published two stories about outspoken, committed socialists: one, an active member of the Industrial Workers of the World running for U.S. Senate and the other a self-described Marxist college professor leading a movement urging the federal government to regulate the Internet. While the facts I cited were undisputed, the left nonetheless reacted with attacks on me personally, on the organization I run, and on people they presume are our donors - which just proves how important it is to assure the privacy of our actual donors and protect them from such attacks.

The Resurrection of Rick Perry

Not since Superman has a fella made such a big impression when he took of his eyeglasses. Turns out, the sexy new specs were a disguise all along. This is the Rick Perry we thought we were getting in 2012 before he crashed and burned onstage. But he's back, baby, and if he can keep it up it just might be change Republicans can believe in.

Ferguson: The War Comes Home

America's attention recently turned away from the violence in Iraq and Gaza toward the violence in Ferguson, Missouri, following the shooting of Michael Brown. While all the facts surrounding the shooing have yet to come to light, the shock of seeing police using tear gas (a substance banned in warfare), and other military-style weapons against American citizens including journalists exercising their First Amendment rights, has started a much-needed debate on police militarization.
