Michael Bloomberg & Deval Patrick believe the Democratic candidate field is not adequate. They must be our lords & saviors. What could be the real reason?
Rand Paul took such command of the interview with Chuck Todd that Congressman Jim Himes (D-CT) had to scold Todd after saying he needed to “de-combust” his head after listening. Chuck Todd’s interview with Rand Paul was an embarrassment not only for Todd but for the corporate mainstream media. It is clear that the tepidity […]
The Patriotic Millionaires prove that they are not all pathologically selfish and greedy. In fact, some are neither capital hoarders nor intent on depressing others.
Now, this one is novel and does merit some thought. Did he really die and is he now a new life? Legally, does this man serving a life sentence have a point?
A Few Takes
A new man of God with a huge Twitter account is one way to revive a career. And then there are “men of God” that can extract some profits from the spectacle.
Democrats are now getting support from most Americans for the impeachment and removal of President Trump according to the latest Fox News poll.
I believe the concept of race is patently stupid as I have written about many times. However, in a society where it has legal consequences, it cannot be ignored. As a black man, what I saw in the Dallas court was disturbing. Is a black man ever deserving of compassion? To be clear, I believe […]
People Making a difference
Keshia is the activist who put her body between a mob and a KKK member who otherwise was going to get beaten to death. Sadly, she was unable to save her restaurant.
Our communities would do well having more people like Ashley Mosley. She stayed in community where many have left intentionally.
Ashley Miller wrote the best sentiment I have seen so far on the win by Tiger Woods that I found most real and inspiring.
Dwyane Wade showed that he still has it. This future hall of fame basketball player did what only most hoped they could.
Maureen Taylor’s message is succinct and prescient There was a gem that many missed at Netroots Nation 2014. That gem was a well-received speech by Detroit activist Maureen Taylor. I recorded her on Thursday of the event, uploaded it to YouTube, and then went on to another panel. As I recorded I remember thinking that […]

So it goes. And so the Trump supporters will parrot his phony claims of innocence and being pursued by enemies of democracy. But here is the real deal!
Every day when he looks at his news feed, Lindsey Graham wishes he could just send Donald Trump to boarding school until the noisy little irritant grows up?
Radio Shows: Politics Done Right
The impeachment hearings charade is on confirming what everybody knows. But working on poor and middle-class policies cannot be placed on hold.
Bloomberg and Patrick are strategic. They are there in case the propaganda from the Establishment takes hold. We will make sure it does not.
Sports are inescapable, especially in the city that cheers for the Astros. And so is politics, even in the stadium. They are impossible to separate.
There are so many claims, counter-claims, and outright lies about Medicare for All. We hope the following will make it simpler to understand.
Corporate/political crookedness is responsible for the successive floods in the Houston area and beyond. It has little to do with God. Here is the deal.
Rev. Chuck Freeman statement: borders and sanctuary justification “These borders were not established by God,” Rev. Freeman said. “These borders were not ordained by God. These are human-made borders. They are artificial. They are here because of colonialism, imperialism, violence, war-making, power-monger. We do not recognize these borders as they stand as artificial barriers between […]

One of my favorite actresses, Diahann Carroll, died today. We actually got her program in Spanish while I was growing up in Panama.
Aretha Franklin is dead but she lives on in the manner most of us knew her. And as such, she lives on and will live on forever.
Egberto On TV
I appeared on HuffPost Live today to discuss the sequester, Hugo Chavez, and telepathic mice. It was a fun panel with three HuffPost reporter/editors. The U.S. Senate voted down opposing plans to avert the across-the-board budget cuts known as sequestration today, just a day before spending cuts take effect. Laboratory rats have communicated with each […]

On January 14 a federal appeals court decided to weaken the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Internet Neutrality policy by striking down the rules it adopted in 2010 to regulate Internet service […]
It seems like I chose just about the right time to write an article on Wendy Davis. She finds herself under attack not only by the entire Right Wing establishment, but from the traditional media as well. She happens to be the story to balance the myriad of bad acts by Republicans. There is a […]
