Did We “Fight the Good Fight,” or Were We Just Pwned?


Looks like the fix is in and Obamacare will be signed into law, if not tomorrow (Sunday, March 20) then soon thereafter.  I haven’t done as much in opposition as many others, but I’ve done some - Lots of emails, phone calls, endless FB postings, innumerable tweets, website posts, a few local Republican candidate livestreams, a [...]

Gorby the Democrat


Mikhail Gorbachev is a living negation of the axiom that history is written by the winners. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, whose existence he tried desperately to salvage, Gorbachev has improbably recast himself as a heroic democrat who, however imperfectly, brought down the edifice of communist repression and now champions democracy for his [...]

Iran takes fight to opposition online – Times Online


Iran’s clerical rulers, who succeeded in suppressing widespread demonstrations last week by blanketing Tehran with security, are escalating a cyberwar to combat the increasingly powerful role of the internet in mobilising their opponents. Visitors to the website of the main challenger in last June’s disputed presidential election were greeted by an image of the Iranian […]
