As we wrap up yet another National Hispanic Heritage Month, this #USA 30-day reality play which ends on October 15, three days after my birthday, please remember that it was enacted into law by Republican President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to celebrate the stories and achievements of Latino US citizens who trace their lineage to Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and throughout all of The Americas.

The Patriarchy Strikes Back

Submitted by ub on Sun, 10/07/2018 - 10:14

Why are men the majority in Congress, in the US Supreme Court and just about everywhere you look inside the halls of control? By diminishing the political power of half the US population, it disenfranchises our entire government and that may be the entire point.

The Republican War on Women in US politics describes policies and legislation as a wide-scale effort to restrict women's rights, including reproductive rights. The patriarchy has males holding power in roles of political leadership, moral authority, social privilege and control of a woman's body.

Is there no digital justice for a self-proclaimed nice guy? Budwise Brett may become an infamous SCOTUS.

Kavanaugh’s kindness and courtesy, or lack thereof have no bearing on whether he should be confirmed to the Supreme Court.

The stage is set now for an end of the most divisive judicial confirmation battle with the exception of the fight over Merrick Garland, who never even got to the designation because it was too close to an election, so the Republicans make their selection a month before the midterms.

US Against The World

Submitted by ub on Fri, 10/05/2018 - 11:40

Nearly 200 years ago, in 1823, President James Monroe's doctrine prevented imperial powers foreign to our Western Hemisphere from acquiring territories anywhere in The Americas or seeking undue influence. This was the cornerstone of #USA grand strategy.

American foreign influence once referred to how we behaved towards other nations. Now we're told there are countries turning the tables on us and global leaders like Russia and now China dares interfere in our internal affairs.
