Census bureau: White Americans have 22 times more wealth than blacks

By: Friday June 22, 2012 8:43 am

This is a horror for the entire country  – it shows the long-term impact of the eight-year Bush reign of economic terror that Barack Obama has faced — and Mitt Romney will if he ascends to the Presidency. (CNN): White Americans have 22 times more wealth than blacks — a gap that nearly doubled during [...]

Gay Iowa caucus goers: economy first, LGBT rights on back burner, and DADT repeal was a ‘gimme’

By: Tuesday January 3, 2012 11:42 am

Over at the Washington Blade, Chris Johnson has a story up, “Young, gay caucus-goers talk politics, support for GOP” that is just another reminder that the information gap between LGBT activists, citizen journalists, traditional media and the average LGBT citizen out there is sometimes a canyon. Johnson interviews several Iowa caucus attendees who are also [...]

Herman Cain: shameless tap dancing for conservative white voters

By: Thursday October 20, 2011 10:11 am

That headline is about as polite as I could make it. My cousin in New York was a bit more candid on my Facebook page: A couple of weeks ago I made a [Facebook] comment on a friend’s post, equating Cain to Steppin Fetchit. I was told it was out of line to call him [...]

CNN invites non-candidates Palin, Giuliani to GOP debate, ignores actual candidate Fred Karger

By: Thursday September 1, 2011 2:17 pm

This makes no sense — choosing to bypass inviting an actual candidate running for the President to your debate, but roll out the red carpet for two non-candidates. That is absurdly discriminatory. In a statement, CNN announces its line-up for the September 12 Tea Party Express co-sponsored debate in Tampa: Gov. Rick Perry, Rep. Michele [...]

Let’s put two more fair-minded justices on Washington’s Supreme Court

By: Friday July 9, 2010 11:00 am

If we needed a reminder, this week’s rulings striking down Section 3 of DOMA demonstrate the importance of having fair minded justices on the bench. By a 5-4 vote the Supreme Court of the State of Washington ruled in 2006 in Andersen v. King County that the state’s Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) was constitutional. [...]

Randall & Stickney trying to influence the R-71 validation process with phone calls

By: Wednesday August 19, 2009 3:02 pm

Larry Stickney and Gary Randall are apparently concerned about the rejection rate of signatures on their anti-domestic partnership Referendum 71.  At about 11%, R-71′s cumulative to-date signature rejection rate is the lowest in recent memory, and is still well below the drop-dead rate of 12.4% that would keep the referendum off the ballot.  Further, if [...]

Oregonian Gary Randall’s History of Manipulating Washington State Voters

By: Friday May 1, 2009 10:15 am

Oregonian Gary Randall has quite a history of reaching his sticky fingers over state lines and trying to manipulate Washington voters.  He’s most famous for his involvement in the FAILED but personally lucrative referendum campaign in 2006 against Washington’s anti-discrimination law.  And it is well known that he’s promising to file a referendum in Washington [...]
