Will Democrats Face Obama's Policy Of Killing Americans Without Trial?

When George W. Bush began assassinations of non-Americans without trial, Democrats expressed strong objections. When Barack Obama began assassinations of Americans, without any trial, Democrats got confused about what to do. A few have expressed opposition, but many, leaders and rank-and-file alike, have decided that they’ll support Obama’s policy of extrajudicial killings, even though it’s […]

Top 50 Liberal Bumper Stickers of August 2012: Warren, Romney, Obama, Stein

To cover the costs required to keep Irregular Times going, we sell liberal political bumper stickers, buttons and shirts — over 10,000 different kinds of them.

With Corker and Clayton out of the Question, Write in Jim Maynard for Senate in TN

If your politics are anywhere to the left of Pat Robertson, the two major parties offer no viable option in the Tennessee Senate race.

Obama Approves Offshore Drilling With Untested Technology

The Obama Administration has just agreed to expand offshore drilling along the shore of Virginia, and to allow Shell Oil to conduct offshore drilling in the Beaufort Sea’s icy Arctic waters, using untested technology. Barack Obama has been an anti-environment President, in the pocket of corporations that profit from selling fossil fuel. He is not a decent choice for serious environmentalist voters in 2012. […]

A Hood On The Head Does Not Mean A Hoodlum In The Head

Today, U.S. Representative Bobby Rush wore a hooded sweatshirt on the floor of Congress and delivered the following message:

“The death of Trayvon Martin is an American tragedy. Too often this violent act is repeated in the streets of our nation.

Racial profiling has to stop. Just because someone wears a hoodie, does not make […]

Hey Chris Christie! Why don’t YOU shut up for a second?

Chris Christie, why don’t YOU shut up for a second? While you’re at it, why don’t you step down from office, and allow someone more dignified and decent to represent the state of New Jersey? […]
