S/SW blog philosophy -

I credit favorite writers and public opinion makers.

A lifelong Democrat, my comments on Congress, the judiciary and the presidency are regular features.

My observations and commentary are on people and events in politics that affect the USA or the rest of the world, and stand for the interests of peace, security and justice.

"It's just highly inappropriate, it's a despicable message, it drips with racism and I think she should step down from the committee," said Baugh.

If you live in an area where there is a lot of drilling for natural gas, this recent study found that fracking for natural gas is more hazardous than burning coal - according to Yahoo! News.And finally, you will be amazed by the following three items:
