Fox and Friends Lie Again

Fox and Friends Lie Again

  Over the last couple years I have reluctantly found myself defending President Obama and the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). Just to be clear, I am not a supporter of President Obama or Obamacare. Like nearly 100 million other Americans that consider themselves Liberal or Progressive I oppose Obamacare because it doesn’t go far enough. […]

Community Keeps Pressure on D.A. over Child Shooting

On Sunday afternoon I received a text message from Michael Rothenberg of 100 Thousand Poets for Change (100TPC), “What do you know about Andy Lopez?” I wrote back that English professor/writer Shepherd Bliss and I had written a couple of articles at Expats Post and we planned to follow the story.  Andy Lopez is the […]

Don’t Blame the Cops

Don’t Blame the Cops

  I’m going to be the least popular person in this debate. I’ve already being criticized by my Facebook friends on both the political left and right.

Bill O’Reilly’s Irresponsible “Talking Points” on Race

Bill O’Reilly’s Irresponsible “Talking Points” on Race

Perhaps the only thing positive about the mass media’s obsession with the killing of Trayvon Martin has been the quasi national dialog on race and racism in the U.S. Quasi, unfortunately, because most of the time the political left and political right seems to be talking past each other. I went to high school in […]

Maker Media Makes Work Look Fun

Maker Media Makes Work Look Fun

Ever wonder what it’s like to work at a really cool tech/media company? My girlfriend just landed such a job. A few weeks ago she was hired full-time at Maker Media.  Earlier this year, Maker Media spun off O’Reilly Media to form its own company.
