Divided We Fail

Nov 3 2014 10:55am CST | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Seven weeks ago, I wrote about the possibility that the GOP would win back the Senate by misinforming the public, debasing the Presidency and inflicting great damage on the American people. Today, that possibility seems more real than ever. Regardless of Tuesday's outcome, we'll have a divided government intentionally ground to a halt not just for the next two years, but likely considerably longer. Electoral math makes it unlikely the GOP will recapture the White House in 2016. G ...

Democrats Are 'Disgusted' With Politics? Boo Hoo

Oct 28 2014 4:07pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Look, fellow Democrats, I'm as disgusted as you are with the general wrongness of things at the moment: the congressional gridlock and partisan polarization going on for years now; the growing capacity of money to get the politics it wants; the growing evidence of government not working -- the Secret Service not serving the president, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention not preventing the Ebola viru ...

A Revolt Against Austerity?

Oct 19 2014 8:56pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

There was a bit of good news from Europe last week. Two of the nations that desperately need some respite from austerity essentially told German Chancellor Merkel to stuff it. France, under pressure from Germany and the European Union to meet the E.U.'s straightjacket requirement of deficits of no more than three percent of GDP (whether or not depression looms) informed the E.U. that they will not hit this target until 2017. The government of President F ...

Alison Lundergan Grimes: Lost Coal Jobs “Happened On Your Watch, Senator”

Oct 14 2014 3:38pm CDT | Source: ThinkProgress

In the Kentucky senate race’s likely only debate Monday evening, challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes showed that even in coal country, a Democrat can fight back on climate change. Grimes repeatedly challenged Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on his party’s fight against protecting miners from black lung, and she pushed back when he tried to blame decades of coal industry job cuts on federal regulations that haven’t even been implemented yet. Grimes also went afte ...

Jobs and Obama’s Political Woes

Oct 6 2014 8:51am CDT | Source: Big Government

Despite another seemingly good jobs report, President Obama’s approval rating is lower than a snake’s belly, and Republicans could retake the Senate in November. Missteps in the Ukraine, Iraq, and elsewhere weigh on voters’ minds, but the economy—especially the jobs picture—is not what Obama cracks them up to be. Obama has managed to increase employment only 5.5 million, or about 4 percent, but measured against other presidents facing similar ch ...

The Right-Wing Trolls Have a Strategy. What's Ours?

Oct 2 2014 12:57pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Years of interacting on the Web with right-wingers have taught me: to engage with right-wing trolls is to play into their hands. The first conclusion I drew was that there must be something amiss in their way of thinking, at least about political matters, that made them ineducable. Their arguments so often had no substance, but seemingly relied on slogans and bald assertions creating reality by magic. Paul Krugman talks about "zombie ideas" -- ideas that have been killed, but so ...

MythicAmerica is on a forced hiatus while I deal with health problems. But over 300,000 people in New York City the other day reminded us all that no one's health will matter much unless we take care of the planet's health. So I felt moved to polish up a previously unpublished column and share these thoughts with you: The old joke, "Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it," is no laughing matter any more.
