• Can you smell it too?

    May 14, 2013 Jake DiMare

    Recently I shared this chart, courtesy of Mother Jones, on my Facebook page and was quickly challenged by a connection to explain what I thought it had to do with the current conversation about Benghazi. Here’s what I had to say: Well Paul, since you asked…What this data provides me with is confirmation of what,…

  • Eviscerating the Rubes

    February 14, 2013 Jake DiMare

    For me, the most interesting aspect  of Marco Rubio’s ill-fated rebuttal to President Obama’s State of the Union Address this week wasn’t the Senator’s palpable, obvious difficulty with nerve. As entertaining as the stuttering, stammering, and dry-mouth was to behold,  it is the ongoing reaction of my Conservative friends and associates that I’m enjoying most.…

  • America: We're (NOT) #1!

    July 12, 2012 Jake DiMare

    Aaron Sorkin’s rant through Will McAvoy, the lead character in his hit new HBO series ‘Newsroom’ is almost correct…According to the Wikipedia list of top international rankings by country, America is number 1 in many categories. Here are just a few: Largest cheese producer, largest importer, largest external debt, highest production of corn and beef.…

  • A history lesson for Republicans

    July 3, 2012 Jake DiMare

    I found this Republican propaganda about President John F. Kennedy online this morning and I couldn’t be more captivated by the rhetoric. Sounds awfully familiar to me… It seems Conservatives have been playing from the same sheet music for a long time. It’s further galvanized my belief in the idea that Conservatives are all about…

  • Keep digging…

    January 24, 2012 Jake DiMare

    Each time I think the GOP presidential nomination process has hit rock bottom one of the candidates produces yet another shovel. This past weekend ‘The Newt’ (as I’ve taken to refer to him) managed to slam dunk the South Carolina primary in a major upset that’s left everyone scratching their heads…And I mean everyone. What’s…

  • My take on 'Mr. Daisey and the Apple Factory'

    January 9, 2012 Jake DiMare

    Over the last few years I’ve absorbed a lot of derision for my general objections to Apple. Particularly for my insistent criticism of  Steve Jobs and the lack of Apple’s social responsibility standards with regards to supply chain practices. I truly don’t care if it changes anyone’s mind but I guess part of me hopes anyone…

  • #OccupyTheHolidays #OccupyBlackFriday

    November 22, 2011 Jake DiMare

    This year for the holidays stick it to the man and consider buying only local products and services as gifts. Buying local supports the local economy, fights globalization, is better for the environment and will send a message to corporations who engage in exploitative labor practices overseas. The only power normal American citizens have left…

  • Figuring out what it means to be a good man…

    October 10, 2011 Jake DiMare

    I’ve written three articles for the Good Men Project so far but I’m not sure I am any closer to being a good man myself. In fact, I don’t think I even know what it takes to be a good man. Check out my articles and tell me, what do you think? My Angry Rhetoric…

  • Is it really happening? #occupywallstreet

    September 23, 2011 Jake DiMare

    For years now I have been warning anyone that will listen about the problem of accelerating increases in inequality. My (sometimes) angry rhetoric on the growing gulf between the minority wealthy and the rest of us, and what it means to the fabric of society recently grew so loud it landed me a side gig…
