Bush might actually know what he’s doing with Georgia and Russia
Could George W. Bush’s stance on the Russian invasion of Georgia actually have good merit? I argue yes; whether he knows it or not is up for debate. My conclusion is based on the “splendid little war” of 1898, the Spanish-American War. By 1898, Cuba’s fight for independence against Spain was beginning to seriously affect the United States. First, there was a human rights issue | Read More »
Homelessness Falls Under Bush… Where is the Media?
Have you noticed that the old media standby story of the homeless has not been pursued much in the last four or five years? Some may remember how the media constantly bemoaned the state of the homeless during the Reagan and H.W. Bush years in office, and how the media constantly used this tale as a club with which to beat those two Republican presidents | Read More »
Proof that the Founding Fathers hated Dennis Kucinich. More or less.
Good old Dennis Kucinich is back in the news with his Bush impeachment attempt, claiming that he goaded Congress into voting for war with Iraq by using false claims.

Flat out: I’m a progressive Democrat, and I’m sure I strongly disagree with most of those here on just about every issue (except gun control and some union-related stuff).

Specifically, I’d like to know what your initial reaction is to the teaser trailer, which was just | Read More »

There’s nothing funnier (well, ok perhaps listening to Obama try to ad-lib, maybe) than watching people squirm. The more they do it the more they expose themselves as squirming. The story today is all about B.H.Obama’s hug fest in Germany. Thousands of sheeple gathered to see the new ‘star’ from across the pond. Why wouldn’t they? Everything they see, hear and read from ‘over here’ | Read More »

A question for Barack Obama
Prime Minister Maliki has spoke positively of the surge since it started, crediting it for averting civil war in his country. Now that Maliki and President Bush are talking about using the success of the surge and General Petraeus’s new strategy in order to pull our troops out earlier, will you admit you were wrong and Bush was right about the surge?

At the top of http://www.countryaboveself.com is a new graphic. That graphic depicts a ‘window of opportunity’. It started on Jul 10 and ends on August 24. Do the math. Today, it is still in the ‘green’ but when congress goes on recess it will be in the ‘yellow’. It may not appear important. But it is. For all of us.
