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 […]

Lies and Misunderstandings

May 28th, 2010 · Comments Off on Lies and Misunderstandings · Corporations and Industry, Entertainment, Media, Politics, Populism

When are we going to grow up as a nation? We have an entire media spectrum…that is, all the radio stations and all the television stations and channels and podcasts and people blathering on street corners and in coffee shops….and there is no substance, no facts and very little concern for the truth. Just stop […]

More Idiotic Propaganda From the GOP Lunatic Fringe

March 4th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Health Care, Media, Politics

The Republicans have lost the battle against health care for their supporters in the health insurance industry. With no more stalling options, they are trying to use propaganda to scare and distract Americans about the federal government. Most of it is just gibberish. Be assured of one thing. We are in no danger of becoming […]

The Grim State of the Nation

February 24th, 2010 · Comments Off on The Grim State of the Nation · Economics, Energy, Health Care, Jobs, Politics

As we are about to enter the third month of 2010, the nation is in its worst financial and economic condition since, perhaps, 1939. We have large-scale unemployment, foreclosures, bankruptcies, homelessness, hunger, lack of living essentials, and many working families with huge credit card debt. The Neoconservative Republicans who control the Republican Party, have decided […]

Before Neocons Call People “Nazis” They Should Look in the Mirror.

December 19th, 2009 · Comments Off on Before Neocons Call People “Nazis” They Should Look in the Mirror. · Health Care, Media, Politics

Shame on the Neoconservatives, as they call themselves. They want to be called “Republicans.” But we can’t really call them Republicans, can we? They are not traditional Republicans. Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt and Dwight Eisenhower were more or less traditional Republicans. Neoconservatives are more like the old Dixiecrats. In fact the manic racist Strom Thurmond […]

There are Lies…Damned Lies…And Then There Is Fox News!

October 15th, 2009 · Comments Off on There are Lies…Damned Lies…And Then There Is Fox News! · Media, Politics

Rupert Murdoch is not a likable man. He deals in…is mired in…sleaze media. But like the operator of any profitable strip club, he knows his business. From a sleaze-business operator’s standpoint, he is both successful and from the purely business point of view–the abstract point of view–he could be said to elicit some appreciation for […]

Wall Street Journal Under Murdoch: Propaganda Masquerades as Opinion, Opinion as Fact.

September 17th, 2009 · Comments Off on Wall Street Journal Under Murdoch: Propaganda Masquerades as Opinion, Opinion as Fact. · Economics, Politics

In the Wall Street Journal this morning in mid-September 2009, John Taylor, a noted economist from Stanford has determined, in his wisdom, or that of Rupert Murdoch, or his lieutenants, or Roger Ailes or Sean Hannity or Ann Coulter…take your pick when you are dealing with Neocon propaganda…has said that the stimulus did not work.
