Returning to Bush-Cheney Politics

October 30th, 2010 · Comments Off on Returning to Bush-Cheney Politics · Politics

We are about to elect a Neocon-Republican House of Representatives—if all the numbers are correct—that will do its best to further set back the Middle Class and return us to the policies of “Everything for the Rich” of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. Before you vote, please remember what happened between 2001-2008. We had […]

October 29th, 2010 · Comments Off on Armageddon · Politics

Here they come, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: McConnell, Vitter, DeMint and Boehner. The voters say: start with a plague on all your houses. Yet they visit the plague itself, the obstructive, propagandistic, elitist Republican Party on all of us. War, famine and death…well, we already have the first (a double-header) and part of […]

The Common Wisdom

October 27th, 2010 · Comments Off on The Common Wisdom · Politics

Here’s something to take into the voting booth. Even though life is complicated and the complexity is compounded by the acceleration of information being fed to us every day…we already know what to do. No one needs to tell us how to live or how to vote or what decisions to make. If you are […]

Elections Have Consequences.

October 25th, 2010 · Comments Off on Elections Have Consequences. · Politics

The First Tuesday in November of 2010… …may be the last day of the American Dream. In 2001, George W. Bush was elected to office. We all knew by the time he took office that most people felt that he was not too bright but many felt that he was a “good old boy.” That […]

The Truth About George Soros…And Other Matters

October 23rd, 2010 · Comments Off on The Truth About George Soros…And Other Matters · Corporations and Industry, Lobbying, Media, Politics

George Soros is in the news these days because, in 2004, he bankrolled a considerable part of the effort to contain the horrendous, near-cataclysmic Bush Republican agenda of free-lance war and devastation and American money markets run amok. And because he has continued to financially support other causes regarding freedom of speech and truth in […]

The Danger of Armed Insurrection in America Today

October 21st, 2010 · Comments Off on The Danger of Armed Insurrection in America Today · Politics, Wars and Militarism

We go to work in unnerving heavy traffic, fighting to get there on time so that we won’t be one of those who is on the list for the next layoff. We come home to find out that the neighbor down the street who lost his job 9 months ago and never found another has […]

Tea Party Express to Disaster

October 20th, 2010 · Comments Off on Tea Party Express to Disaster · Politics

A recent survey showed that only 5% of the Tea Party signs were racist, or called the President a Muslim or said that he was not born in America and therefore had not been eligible to be President. And who did the survey? The very impartial person who did this was a Cato Institute intern. […]

What Republicans Will Do If Elected

October 16th, 2010 · Comments Off on What Republicans Will Do If Elected · Media, Politics, Populism

We now know what the Republicans want. Not the Tea Party members. They are merely dupes. Yes, dupes. If you are concerned about government spending you don’t rail at the Party that cut spending for 8 years, even going so far as to take hit after hit in the Congressional elections. So many House of […]

Momentous Election in the Age of the “Hick”

October 12th, 2010 · Comments Off on Momentous Election in the Age of the “Hick” · Politics

It is 2010 and the lights are going out all over America. Slowly winding down to darkness. If darkness covers the land of opportunity, when will we find our way forward again? There is no question now about our educational system. It has failed us, and the warnings of Newton Minow, some fifty years ago […]

Glenn Beck Attacks Unions

October 9th, 2010 · 2 Comments · Capitalism, Economics, Jobs, Labor, Media, Politics, Taxes

Glenn Beck, the supposedly middle class hero, turns out to be a hollowed out Tin Man. Lately, we noticed that this self-style man of the people likes to attack unions, who are merely organizations of people…not hugely wealthy individuals or giant corporations…who assemble together to get good wages for the hard work that they perform. […]

Palin, O’Donnell and the Consequences of Ignorance

October 4th, 2010 · Comments Off on Palin, O’Donnell and the Consequences of Ignorance · Politics

Sarah Palin, despite all her ramblings and her massive intellectual bloc against common sense, seems like a nice lady. She is attractive and has an appeal to some housewives that is undeniable. Her husband, despite some accusations that he belonged to a Party that wanted Alaska to secede from the Union, seems like a nice […]

Glenn Beck: Clown Prince of Propaganda

October 2nd, 2010 · 3 Comments · Corporations and Industry, Media, Politics

There is always a question whether or not to give any kind of attention to the show-off–the kid who acts out in class because he doesn’t get enough attention at home. The kid whom everyone shuns either withdraws into his shell or becomes the one who disrupts things for others. Not necessarily the funny kid, […]
