Junior (Senator) Goes to Washington

November 30th, 2010 · Comments Off on Junior (Senator) Goes to Washington · Corporations and Industry, Lobbying, Politics, Taxes

New (Junior) Senator Mark Kirk from Illinois made an interesting statement now that he is in political power for 6 years, unless impeached or recalled or…whatever. That statement contradicts the overall attitude of the State of Lincoln and Percy, and Dirksen and Simon and Durgin and Obama. Kirk’s attitude mirrors that of Goldwater, Reagan and, […]

Paul Ryan and Barnyard Economics

November 24th, 2010 · Comments Off on Paul Ryan and Barnyard Economics · Politics

Ryan is a wonderful Irish name. But Paul Ryan is no typical Irishman. Ryan carries less of the Irish tradition than does Russ Feingold. The reason is that the Irish are the very symbol of fighters for the common man, for the underdog. Another Ryan, for example, Leo Ryan gave his life trying to save […]

Sean and the Great Republican Propaganda Machine

November 18th, 2010 · Comments Off on Sean and the Great Republican Propaganda Machine · Capitalism, Corporations and Industry, Economics, Media, Politics, Taxes

Today, we hear from a paid Republican blogger who comments on Dr. Paul Krugman’s blog: “Conscience of a Liberal.” This clown is one of several obviously paid bloggers who seem to be on the blog almost daily spouting ridiculous comments, distracting references, insults, pathetic attempts at ridicule—and in all cases comments intending merely to disrupt […]

The 500 Reactionary Rich

November 16th, 2010 · Comments Off on The 500 Reactionary Rich · Economics, Health Care, Lobbying, Media, Politics, Taxes

We have a serious problem in this country. It is not hard to recognize or to understand. It is simple and it is ruining America. It could be solved with swift, violent action but, as we are a civilized society, we need to look to more civilized measures. Here is the problem. A handful…about 500 […]

Understanding Political Reality

November 13th, 2010 · Comments Off on Understanding Political Reality · Corporations and Industry, Health Care, Lobbying, Media, Politics

Life is not a game show. The realities of electing the moronic, semi-troglodytic President’s son as President…or having the Supreme-Court-justice son of a rumored Fascist appoint him…should have proved that. From $5 trillion in debt and a balanced budget to a $14 trillion in debt and a commission trying to figure out how to keep […]

Republicans Plan Tax Cuts for Billionaires.

November 10th, 2010 · Comments Off on Republicans Plan Tax Cuts for Billionaires. · Media, Politics

Rule number one—always remember that the current Republican Party is out to get you unless you are a multi-millionaire and a donor to the Republican Party. Republicans at the top are all millionaires, like Dick Cheney who left government only for a few years to clean up as President of Halliburton by using his Defense […]

Propaganda, Elections, Taxes, and Losing America

November 6th, 2010 · Comments Off on Propaganda, Elections, Taxes, and Losing America · Lobbying, Media, Politics

In a bold statement, Senator Mitch McConnell must have encountered a “senior moment” because he momentarily lost his talking points. He actually had the nerve to tell the truth before the video tape could be doctored, snipped or hidden. He told the American People the objective of the Republican Congress. He said that the Republicans […]

Why Republicans Want Repeal of Health Care Reform

November 4th, 2010 · Comments Off on Why Republicans Want Repeal of Health Care Reform · Health Care, Media, Politics

This recent election was not about Americans’ understanding of recent legislation. It was about their misunderstanding of recent legislation. That may be deliberate. We know that Glenn Beck has a million or so listeners and viewers. Rush Limbaugh supposedly has more than ten million listeners a day. That is largely because for many years…perhaps still…his […]

Who Won the Election?

November 3rd, 2010 · Comments Off on Who Won the Election? · Politics

The votes in the Mid-term elections have been tallied.The message has been sent. The Republicans got it loud and clear. But do you know what it is? You’d better find out quickly, because the new Republican government is about to implement that message. That is not good news for the average American. First, who are […]

Americans Aren’t Stupid–Just Crazy!

November 1st, 2010 · Comments Off on Americans Aren’t Stupid–Just Crazy! · Politics

This is a message for Americans who would vote for the Corporatists. No..actually, it is more like a rant against these dangerously ignorant voters. Are Americans stupid who would vote for a Senator like Sharron Angle, who would–among other things–try to privatize the Veterans’ Administration? Are Americans stupid who would vote for a Senator like […]
