Let’s Talk About the National Budget.

May 21st, 2011 · Comments Off on Let’s Talk About the National Budget. · Corporations and Industry, energy, jobs, Politics, taxes, Wall Street, wars and militarism

Phony baloney. Just like Walker in Wisconsin, the talk about “austerity” is a bunch of rich white men talking bull shit about what needs to be done. We don’t need austerity. Not the kind the Republicans are talking about. We need prosperity. You see, the problem with the United States right now is that we […]

Let’s be very clear. We could very well be on the edge of revolution. The Republican Party, which now controls the House of Representatives, the Supreme Court, the Governorships of 39 states is trying to take this country into total Depression.

May 1st, 2011 · Comments Off on The Catastrophic Failure of the American Spirit · Corporations and Industry, Human Rights, Politics

Today is one of the saddest days in the history of the American Republic. Americans proved that they have failed in maintaining the spirit of communal support that built this country.
