Most Americans Don’t Like the Republican Party

Franklin @ September 8, 2008 # 2 Comments

Neither the Democratic Party for that matter. The truth of the matter is that America is less a democracy than a indifferencecracy (the power of indifference). Let’s see the numbers from Infoplease: The average turnout from 1960 to 2006 is 47.8 of the eligible population. That is, more than half the people with a right […]

US Economy: Fit, Fat or Bloated?

Franklin @ May 2, 2008 # 2 Comments

President Bush’s refusal to admit the US economy is in a recession is just proof of his delusional state of mind. If you dismissed his idea that people were going to be waiting for the US army with flowers in the streets of Baghdad as an honest mistake, and his handling of the Katrina crisis […]

Franklin @ April 21, 2008 # 21 Comments

“I’ve spoken of the shining city all my political life, but I don’t know if I ever quite communicated what I saw when I said it. But in my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and […]
