About SBprogressives


SB stands for South Boston or Southie--an historical section of Boston, Massachusetts. Not only is it where I was born and raised; it is also where this country had its painful birth. George Washington and Colonel Knox miraculously dragged cannons from Fort Ticonderoga to Dorchester Heights in Southie. The British were forced to flea the…

Corporate Fascism


Where is the outrage? Is the revolution ever coming? Bill O'Reilly gets fired for sexual harassment, yet Trump who brags about sexually harassing women (and who demonstrated his lack of respect for women with his lewd comments) is elected president?!
