Nixon Resignation

Written by Rob Rogers on .

It has been forty years since the Watergate scandal forced Richard M. Nixon to resign from office. Jimmy Carter, elected as a backlash to Nixon, only lasted one term. Since that time, only two Democratic Presidents have been elected, and both have been under siege by republicans in Congress. Clinton was impeached and Obama might be. This is a sad state of affairs.

Biohazard

Written by Rob Rogers on .

The partisan toxicity of the republicans in Congress has destroyed any hope of passing legislation that would actually help the people they represent. They are too busy trying to bring down Obama to be concerned with the needs of average citizens.

Gaza Prison

Written by Rob Rogers on .

Many people have characterized Gaza as a prison with Israel acting as prison guard. Gaza is not allowed a port or an airport and Israel maintains full control of its border crossings in and out.
