Wisconsin: The Terrible Price of Political Ignorance

June 29th, 2011 · Comments Off on Wisconsin: The Terrible Price of Political Ignorance · Politics, Populism

Where are we? It is June, 2011. What kind of country are we? What kind of people are we? We know a few things…things that everyone can see without being clairvoyant. We are all overweight. We watch too much television. Television has too many commercials. Too many people are poor;too many are dangerously close to […]

Overturning the Republican Lie Machine

June 27th, 2011 · Comments Off on Overturning the Republican Lie Machine · Capitalism, Health Care, Lobbying, Politics, Populism

The facts about austerity are incontrovertible. There is every good reason to generate more income and not cut entitlement programs. Do NOT let the Right Wing media,which is most television media, persuade you to give in to cutting social services. Ronald Reagan put people onto the streets. There were days in the 1980s that you […]

Tax the Rich and Balance the Budget.

June 25th, 2011 · Comments Off on Tax the Rich and Balance the Budget. · Capitalism, Corporations and Industry, Jobs, Politics, Populism, Taxes, Wall Street

The very wealthy on Wall Street and their political arm, the Neoconservative Republican Party got us into this horrific Recession. Teachers didn’t do it. Nurses didn’t do it. The poor who wanted to own homes and were sold fake mortgages by unscrupulous real estate mortgage brokers didn’t do it. Wall Street, with the active participation […]

Tax the Rich and Save the Country

June 20th, 2011 · Comments Off on Tax the Rich and Save the Country · Politics, Populism, Taxes, Wall Street

It is time that we stopped thinking about fairness, goodness, and justice. Fairness went out the window with Reagan. There never was enough goodness to go around. And justice…well, we’ve got five Right Wing Corporate Lawyers serving on the Supreme Court. How do you like your justice now? So let’s stop worrying about whether our […]

The Neocon Republican Candidates—A Rogues Gallery

June 15th, 2011 · Comments Off on The Neocon Republican Candidates—A Rogues Gallery · Health Care, Jobs, Lobbying, Politics, Taxes, Wall Street

What a bunch of losers we saw in the first Republican debate. It was shallow, obfuscating and ignored reality. We’ll start off by saying that we can’t even add Herman Cain and Ron Paul to a serious discussion. Cain is a total zero and Paul, as we know from what he has said in the […]

First Big Emergency of Many. Better Read This!

June 15th, 2011 · Comments Off on First Big Emergency of Many. Better Read This! · Capitalism, Politics

Normally only idiotic and venal Senator John Kyl of Arizona, while Mexicans are climbing over the garden walls in Tucson and he is fiddling (or “diddling” ?) away his time in Washington, has said…pay attention now…that the Republicans will not raise the debt ceiling without dollar-for-dollar cuts in government spending. What this means is all […]

The Trouble with the Trouble with the Economy

June 13th, 2011 · Comments Off on The Trouble with the Trouble with the Economy · Economics, Politics, Taxes

We’ve got trouble. Right here in Washington City. And that starts with a “T” and that rhymes with a “G” and that stands for GOP! The Neocon Party is out to use the economy to cause massive trouble for American citizens. The Republicans want to slash spending because…they say…we are going over the cliff. If […]

Is Tim Pawlenty Dumber than Palin or Bachmann?

June 8th, 2011 · Comments Off on Is Tim Pawlenty Dumber than Palin or Bachmann? · Politics

Here’s an imaginative new platform for a Republican Candidate. Tim Pawlenty’s blistering slogan is: “A Better Deal.” Huh? That’s it? For God’s sake, governor, get your own motto; don’t fall back on Liberal mottoes for policies that actually worked. The New Deal and the Fair Deal and the New Frontier…Democratic slogans for when the United […]

More Neocon Lies about Obamacare–and the Truth

June 6th, 2011 · Comments Off on More Neocon Lies about Obamacare–and the Truth · Health Care, Politics, Populism

Well, here we go again, folks. More non-stop lies about the future of health care reform legislation. There is no question that our “friends” in the health insurance industry are in a panic. They know that they must fight health care reform tooth and nail or they will end up losing their multi-million dollar bonuses […]

Republicans Auctioning Off Your Country to Their Friends

June 3rd, 2011 · Comments Off on Republicans Auctioning Off Your Country to Their Friends · Politics

“To the victor belong the spoils.” Little did the Senator in 1831 know how far the Republican Party of 2011, even more corrupt than that of Andrew Jackson, would take those words. (We may yet see our own “trail of tears” march if the idiotic Tea Party members are not thrown out of office by […]
