In a hypocritical and patronizing lecture to its own readers, the Leesburg Daily Commercial revealed its closet racism and its failure to practice what it preaches. With help from Archbishop Desmond Tutu, we show them what real civic responsibility looks like.
Defending Todd Akin, Star Parker posits an economic argument for banning abortion. As usual, her case advances the self-interest of the plutocracy at the expense of everyone else.
As if Todd Akin’s comments on “legitimate rape” weren’t bad enough, Cal Thomas’s attempt to defend Akin is even worse. The religious right, it would seem, is right even when it is obviously wrong.
Paul Ryan’s recent visit to The Villages retirement mecca in Florida added an ugly generational twist to the plutocrats’ class war. Only an idiot would fall for it.
As Americans congratulate themselves for landing the Curiosity rover on Mars, they conveniently forget their abysmal history of abusing the beautiful planet they already have.
The Leesburg Daily Commercial, through its in-house plutocratic sycophant, Russ Sloan, has referred to recipients of Social Security and Medicare as wild animals growing dangerously dependent on social assistance. Middle-class Americans must fight back against this open class warfare. Russ Sloan must be fired.
Now converted to the Romney cause, Cal Thomas argues that Americans don’t need government to succeed. Common sense is the latest victim in his relentless campaign on behalf of the plutocracy.
Cal Thomas’s reaction to Chief Justice Roberts’ opinion on Obamacare typifies the hypocrisy of the right on the proper role of the Court. Constantly railing against judicial activism, they are outraged by an example of restraint. Or, at least, they pretend to be.
The extraordinary resistance to the Affordable Care Act by Florida Governor Rick Scott echoes the Nullification Crisis of 1832-33 and the battles over desegregation in the 1950s and 1960s. The national war between plutocracy and democracy is becoming red hot in the red states as their helpless citizens look on in amazement and despair.
Russ Sloan’s latest invocation of Reagan’s anti-government rhetoric attempts to blame business failures on burdensome regulations. Conveniently, it neglects to mention that corporate profits are at an all-time high.
Readers of the Leesburg Daily Commercial continue to fall for the myth that there is a significant difference between Democrats and Republicans. But both parties serve the same master.
President Obama’s recent remark about the health of the private sector contained more truth than either candidate would have us know.
The recent protest by Lake County veterans that secured the removal of an Obama-themed flag from Democratic Party headquarters offers some fascinating lessons about the role of symbols in our society. But these larger lessons are completely lost – as always – on the Leesburg Daily Commercial.
The Leesburg Daily Commercial continues to provide Russ Sloan with a platform for his outrageous plutocratic propaganda. But his selective statistics and loaded language should not fool anyone.
Today’s Leesburg Daily Commercial included an article on the growing movement to subject welfare recipients to drug tests. The appeal of this policy to the cynical right has caused many states to ignore both common sense and the Constitution in the pursuit of oligarchic nirvana.
The Leesburg Daily Commercial, like the rest of the mainstream media, continues to present Iran as a grave threat to American interests. It is nothing of the kind, but We the People have abdicated our responsibility to protest against the dreadful consequences of our imperial war machine’s relentless advance.
As expected, the Leesburg Daily Commercial completely failed to understand the frightening implications of Obama’s bank settlement for both the rule of law and the sovereignty of the people. In fact, it actively distracted us from our descent into corporate oligarchy by indulging in typical right-wing showmanship on irrelevant cultural issues.
It takes blind faith to believe in capitalism to the extent that the Daily Commercial’s Russ Sloan does. Sloan’s plutocratic dross has an eager market among the Bible-bashing theocrats, but fails the reality test for thinking adults.
On Martin Luther King Day, the Leesburg Daily Commercial chose to insult Dr. King’s legacy by printing the ridiculous capitalist propaganda of Star Parker. We must reject their arrogant attempt to gloss over the teachings of one of the greatest Americans who ever lived.
As usual, Russ Sloan of the Leesburg Daily Commercial completely misrepresents reality in praising House Republicans for being diligent public servants. Sloan belongs in the cartoon universe with which he insults his readers’ intelligence.
