MN-04: Rep. McCollum keeps trying, on Palestinian rights, vs. a cowardly Congress

April 20, 2021

While I very much enjoy and admire how Rep. Ilhan Omar tells it like it is and pisses people off, in my estimation Rep. Betty McCollum is the best of Minnesota’s current delegation to the U.S. Congress (including the senators). I could certainly nitpick with her record and agenda here and there, but that’s far […]


Muslim-bashers aren’t getting it done, in Minnesota politics – Part 2

August 13, 2020

(Part 1 here.) As noted in Part 1, the haters failed to keep Keith Ellison out of the Minnesota Attorney General’s office, in 2018. Against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), they tried a different approach, this time. There wasn’t the same kind of out-loud bigotry. Instead, they tried a “less divisive,” even supposedly “progressive,” campaign. And […]

Mary Christine Bader wins the coveted Spotty ™

December 1, 2018

Regular readers here know that a Spotty™ is awarded to the writer of a letter to the editor, an op-ed piece, or a blog post or comment that I wish I had written myself. I started to write a piece with the sentiments expressed by Mary Christine Bader, but even if I had finished it […]

August 2, 2014

You can read the prior installments in the series here. For an uncropped version of the image above, which you should really see, go and read the UK Mirror’s site. Here’s an email I sent to the White House Friday evening: Dear President Obama,  I am sorry that you are sad because of all the dead […]

Gaza: The Final Solution II

July 21, 2014

In the last story, I concluded this way: This is all part of a plan by the Israeli government and the settlers and the squatters to clear all the Palestinians from Gaza, and ultimately the West Bank. I call it genocide on the installment plan. There is one other group at the sacrifice of the Red […]

Gaza: The Final Solution

July 19, 2014

I write very little about international, or even national, matters. A lot of other people do, and do it better than I could. But the present of invasion of Gaza by the Israeli “Defense Forces” cries out for comment, even if it is merely cathartic for me. I hope it is more than that, of course. A […]
