DISCLAIMER: I do not attempt to be polite or partisan in my articles, merely truthful. If you are a partisan and believe that the letter after the name of a politician is more important then their policies, I suggest that you stop reading and leave this site immediately--there is nothing here for you.

Modern American politics are corrupt, hyper-partisan, and gridlocked, yet the mainstream media has failed to cover this as anything but politics as usual. This blog allows me to post my views, analysis and criticisms which are too confrontational for posting in mainstream outlets.

Small good news

I neither like nor support Chris Christie in terms of policy or personality, but in this one case he hit the nail on the head. Christie goes after the Muslim hating of his own party when he supports one of his judicial appointees.

Even if you don't agree with anything else Christie does, this is a commendable step and it should be followed by all other politicians. The abuse of Muslims in the USA is both unfair and completely inaccurate: Statistically, most extremism in this country is right wing or christian based. As a question of fairness, nobody should be judged by their religion in our secular government. A small group of Muslim extremist don't taint American Muslims just as the actions of Anders Breivik or Timothy McVeigh don't taint all American Christians.

A small piece of good news in a tsunami of bad,
