Don't petition the White House, Use

Don’t petition the White House, Use

Secessionists. I first want to say thank you for finally learning something from history. The last time so many desired to rid themselves of a tyrannical president they declared war on the Union. Thus, your use of a peaceful means through petitions on the White House’s site is commendable. Furthermore, each state now finds themselves represented by a petition and signatures from people possibly wanting to secede from the United States. Texas leads the way with more than 100,000 people asking the White House to address the issue. This is the same state governed by Rick Perry who drummed up his base of supporters with calls for seceding prior to his Republican bid for President. The irony seemed lost on him. Governor Perry is obviously not a viable option to lead the cause. He hardly put up a fight against a weak group seeking his party’s nomination. I also question...
The Country Moved to the Left Last Night

The Country Moved to the Left Last Night

The whole campaign season did not just depend upon the presidential race that finally came to an end last night. Yes, the country voted clearly to give Barack Obama another four years in the White House. He received more than 50 percent of the vote and won handily in the electoral college. Yet, it is what happened down the ballot that shows the nation’s move toward progressive values. It appears that Democrats will pick up a couple seats in the lower chamber but the real change happened on the senatorial level. Voters said no way to Republicans Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock after they attempted to scapegoat women and downplay the trauma of rape and sexual abuse. Furthermore, women won in Massachusetts, North Dakota, Hawaii, and Wisconsin for their first terms. All four of them will be more progressive legislators than their predecessors. In Wisconsin Tammy Baldwin will be the...
Republicans, Rape, Life, and Control of Women

Republicans, Rape, Life, and Control of Women

During last night’s Indiana Senate debate the Republican candidate, Richard Mourdock, did more than stick his foot in his mouth. I believe life begins at conception. The only exception I have for to have an abortion is in the case of the life of the mother. I struggled with myself for a long time but I came to realize life is that gift from God, even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape. It is something that God intended to happen. Mourdock joined a club made exclusively of Republicans but a club that seems to be growing as the November election nears. Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh made a reprehensible comment about exceptions for the life of the mother following his debate. “There is no such exception. With modern technology and science, you can’t find one instance.” Complete crap as this woman explains. Of course who can forget Missouri...

Starting up and Netroots Nation

Jun 16, 2011 Aaron Krager No Comments

I am sure you have noticed by now that it has been quite a while since the last post. Not the best practice for maintaining a blog or a website but I have been using the time as a journey of sorts for the future and for the site itself. Right now a designer is taking their time to give this site a fantastic new look that should encompass a little bit of my character and the character of my writing. I hope when it is unveiled in about two weeks you will enjoy it.

Another project that will launch next Monday is a podcast network featuring shows focusing on politics (of course), sports, technology and Elizabeth and my podcast – A&E’ 1-2-3. I am confident with hard work the network will be successful. Ideally, I’d love to see a great progressive news show and even original scripted programming. Hey, I can dream and strive for it, right?

Right now I am spending my time up in Minneapolis at this year’s Netroots Nation conference. The four day event brings together progressive activists, writers, politicians and many more people to help push the movement forward. There will be more on the way as the conference progresses.
