Rick Santorum Attacks the Separation of Church and State

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

The ignorant (if not moronic) right wing is stirring up fears and spreading distortions about the First Amendment again. Rick Santorum, for example, has said that the separation of church and state is NOT absolute. I beg to differ and so would have Thomas Jefferson who described […]

Illegal Immigrants Pay More Taxes Than Many Top U.S. Corporations

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

Shoveling Shit in Louisiana?

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

The mantra du jour is that Obama hasn’t undone ‘Bush’. Ergo –Obama is just as evil as is Bush, or Bush Sr, or Ronald Reagan. Not so and not possible! It’s a false analogy that misses the point; it is strategy designed to deflect attention from the […]

Of High Treason and Economic Incompetence: The Reagan Years Revisited!
