The controversy involving Pat Tillman isn't about Pat Tillman.

It's about you and me, the American people.

And it's not really a controversy at this point. At this point , the evidence is alarmingly clear. We were lied to. the use of Pat Tillman's death as a Madison Ave. promotion tool by the executive branch of our government was not only wrong, it is outright disgusting. Heads need to roll. I don't know exactly who's yet, but hopefully not some private or pion like all too often in the...

Dick Cheney continued his campaign of lies and deceit against the American People and the Constitution he swore to protect and uphold. This week, on comedian Rush Limaugh's show, Cheney had the audacity to repeat his bogus allegations that Iraq and Al Qaeda were working togethre before our invasion in 2003.

This was after the release of a report that captured Iraqi documents and intelligence interrogations of Saddam and two of his former aides "all confirmed" that Hussein's regime was not in...

Like many other bloggers, I can be a cable news junkie sometimes. unlike some, I try to get a good mix of views in. I'll catch some stories from conservatives like Wolf Blitzer, Joe Scarborough, Tucker Carlson and even Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity. I also will catch some Olbermann and fellow libertarian Bill Maher for some more progressive viewpoints. But traditionally, my favorite news show over the last decade has been Chris Matthew's "Hardball."

Matthews interviews with a polite, yet agg...

This week, President Bush signed the War Commissions Act. The GOP, in an attempt to reframe the election debates once again, heralded the signing as another nail in the coffin to democrats more so than any terrorist at home or abroad. Funny, I thought that the war was against terrorists, not democrats.

Dennis Hastert, amongst others, desperate to hold onto power, bragged that this bill would stop those pesky democrats from "coddling and pampering" terrorists. yeah, that's what's been happeni...

The headline pretty much says it all. It may be much ado about nothing, But the department of homeland security has notified the NFL and the individual teams that there is a threat to explode 7 "dirty bombs" at games this weekend or "soon."

The 7 cities being targeted are New York, Miami, Atlanta Cleveland, Seattle, Oakland and Houston.

Publicly, homeland security is calling the threat "not credible." Yet they have been prepping the cities and having them increase security.

Interest...

Recently, Conservative journalists and bloggers have been making up more lies about ex president Clinton. As i've stated before, i'm not a democrat (i'm a libertarian by party, but don't agree withthem all the time either) but I believe it's a shame what is being done to a pretty good President who despite what the radical right wing wants everyone to believe, had a successful Presidency.

The claim has been made (again) that Bill Clinton "cut and ran" from Somalia after the infamous "black ha...

this was a commentary made by Keith Olbermann last week on his primetime show. the next day, the pundits were attacking it, but provided little evidence as to why exactly....Keith pretty much hit the bullseye.

Here's what he said, and I couldn't have said it any better.

Half a lifetime ago, I worked in this now-empty space. And for 40 days after the attacks, I worked here again, trying to make sense of what happened, and was yet to happen, as a reporter.

All the time, I knew that the ...

The time has come. Don Rumsfeld must go.

Some may contend that time is long past. Those people probably haven't had a nice thing to say about Rummy or anyone involved with this administration for the past 6 years. this is not about that. This is not partisan or anything of the kind. the simple fact is that if donald rumsfeld was in any other organization than this administration, he would have been fired a long time ago.

Rumsfeld, while not responsible for any decision to go to war, is res...
