Detroit NAACP celebrates its 100-year anniversary with an impressive 57th Annual Fight For Freedom Fund Dinner
Restoring hope for Detroit's futureLast night, the Detroit NAACP held its 57th Annual Fight For Freedom Fund Dinner. This was a particularly auspicious event because this is the 100-year anniversary of the Detroit branch of the NAACP. It is hard to understate the immensity of this event. Upwards of 6,000 people attended this gala event at the Cobo Center in Detroit. There were five podiums set up, ringing the room, each with a long line of seats for dignitaries stretching out on both sides. The press conference before the event was attended not only by the award winners but such dignitaries as...
Everyday they Swiftboat this President
There’s a lot of hubbub about a new ad featuring conservative Navy SEALs. These purported ex-soldiers claim that President Obama is taking too much credit for the historically brave decision he made to go after bin Laden in Pakistan last year. Think Progress has pointed out that this ad has much in common with the 2004 “Swift Boat” ad that peed on war hero John Kerry.
Well, it ain’t 2004 anymore.
In 2004, Fox News was a smaller yet growing presence on cable. YouTube didn’t exist. DrudgeReport hadn’t caught Bieberfever for Mitt Romney.
Most importantly, Osama bin Laden was alive.…

Wisconsin has our back!
Yesterday’s kick-off rally for the second attempt to recall Michigan Governor Rick Snyder was far more sparsely attended than was hoped but the quality of the speakers was fantastic. The event was emceed by progressive talk show radio host (and my personal friend) Tony Trupiano, shown there at the right. Tony hosts the First Shift morning radio show on AM 1310 WDTW where I “appear” once every two weeks on the Blog Role segment.
The Forward Band from Wisconsin traveled to Michigan for the rally. These people have been performing labor songs in their state Capitol building every day since the effort to recall Scott Walker started.…
We mix the Kool-Aid, you swallow it
For anyone who remembers 2009 and 2010, The Fox Effect: How Roger Ailes Turned a Network into a Propaganda Machine by David Brock, Ari Rabin-Havt and Media Matters for America will trigger a bit of PTSD. As the nation was suffering the result of eight years of failed Republican governance, conservative forces came up with a crazy scheme. They would blame the entire crisis on the President who inherited it. And this scheme worked perfectly.
Here’s the central thesis of The Fox Effect, based on my reading: Everything the Tea Party gets credit for was actually achieved by Fox News.…
Hallelujah!As I wrote last Thursday, Republican Joe Schwarz, who was being wooed by the Democratic Party to run in Michigan's 7th Congressional District on their behalf, decided last week NOT to run. This left only Kurt Haskell as the only candidate on the Democratic side and he is "a conspiracy theorist who worries about 'government overreach', talks about cutting taxes in the middle of a recession and isn’t a proponent an essential part of the Affordable Care Act." Well, on Friday, those of us Democrats in MI-07 got some very good news...
Buy us a beer?
