Even in slavery, fathers were rarely sold. Children had a daddy in the quarters.
Buying and selling assets has replaced shovel and wrench expansion.
We are so much better than those we elect to sell us out.
Republicans reject every promise that doesn't involve blame.
Truth is large and transparent, easily translated into comparisons and analogies found from nature to physics, will include its own paradox and discovery.
Things false reflect a single position, stubbornly closed to curious inspection, argued in circles.
Prayers and souls ride the same train.
Workers create wealth and demand.
I think about Detroit. The houses are not longer fit for ghosts.
The GOP never praises what we truly lost; there is no mourning on their path of fear.
It is commonsense not to split your vote on an empty appeal that insults your intelligence and weakens your vote’s effectiveness and strength.
Herman Cain’s remarks are another attempt to marginalize blacks as incompetent and uncritical.

Media omits 3 facts about this mis-named, major legislative story. First, this is the very bill Boehner forced on Obama and then gloated that the President gave him “98%” of what he wanted. This bill, including sequestration, is a Republican … Continue reading
The protection of the tender psychology of children is too often a false, hollow box of innocence, built from a tacit agreement that both parents and children will look the other way at the harmful, risks just beyond the door … Continue reading
(After another rant about the rich being our keepers/) And workers don’t? Keep this country economically viable? The wealthy shoulder the burden all by themselves, for the benefit of all of us, even the poor? That MacDonald’s worker, working Christmas … Continue reading
Southern writers essayists are often left off the lists of “best” and “outstanding.” Journals such as Callaloo, Southern Exposure, The Georgia Review, and publishers including Algonquin Press have created a rise in important Southern non-fiction that matches the earlier fiction … Continue reading
The ancients organized the world into levels to facilitate understanding. Levels let them see how complex parts interacted. The economy benefits from this approach; Paul Krugman often uses it, but the discussion of those doing the discussing is really quite … Continue reading
