Hitler, above all, was a racist. He thought that interbreeding between different races was wrong, but not merely wrong—disastrously wrong. He thought that Darwin’s discovery of the laws of evolution extended to humans and races. He was an intelligent, fanatical  and evil man and his dedication to a Fascist world caused the deaths of 50 […]

It’s time we began to look for ways to organize large numbers of people against the now dominant power of the Plutocracy. Unions are a great starting point and a great model. Let’s dispel the Right Wing Fascist notion that unions are made up of lazy thugs. Unions are made up of hard working individuals. […]

If you talk to leading progressives these days, you’ll be sure to hear this message: The Democratic Party should embrace the economic populism of New York Mayor-elect Bill DeBlasio and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren. Such economic populism, they argue, should be the guiding star for Democrats heading into 2016. But the new, Right Wing Democrats […]

Inflation Versus Inaction

June 20th, 2013 · Comments Off on Inflation Versus Inaction · Corporations and Industry, Economics, General, Jobs, Lobbying, Politics, Populism

We now get a lot of activity from the theorists who say inflation is right around the corner. Every little up-tick in the interest rates, no matter how small, is seen as the first step in an upward spiral into the disaster of inflation. Well, who is saying this? It’s not the same economists who […]

It’s the Economy…Or Is It?

July 4th, 2012 · Comments Off on It’s the Economy…Or Is It? · Democracy, Economics, Politics, Populism, Taxes

Sometimes it seems that economists live in a world different from ours. We have bills to pay, jobs to keep, children to educate. The formulas that economists constantly elaborate upon seem to have little to do with daily life. Of course that is not true. The outcome of macroeconomic calculation can have an enormous impact […]

Our government at local, state and national levels is being confiscated by huge corporations. It is happening every day in state legislatures all over the country.

The Salesman of Hate

March 19th, 2012 · Comments Off on The Salesman of Hate · Media, Politics, Populism

In 2003, a scumbag by the name of Mark Levin was encouraged by two other scumbags, Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh, both of whom made tens of millions of dollars by trashing the government, the Middle Class and the poor and supporting the military-industrial complex, even though they never have, and never would, see the […]

The Son-in-law Senator from Wisconsin

February 23rd, 2012 · Comments Off on The Son-in-law Senator from Wisconsin · Capitalism, Economics, Media, Politics, Populism, Taxes, The Budget

The nice thing about “stupid” is that you don’t have to make anything up or manipulate anything or try to exaggerate anything…stupid is as stupid does. Rarely, however, do public men who are so stupid that you wonder how they can tie their shoes allow their stupidity to show up in the clear, bright glare […]

The High Cost of Neo-Fascism

February 15th, 2012 · Comments Off on The High Cost of Neo-Fascism · Democracy, Health Care, Human Rights, Labor, Politics, Populism, Social Security, Taxes, The Budget

At the very outset, let’s restate our definition of Neo-Fascism. Even if you do not agree with our definition of the current Republican Party being Neo-Fascist, you will at least know why we make that contention. Remember, Populism is the opposite of Fascism. Populism is a political theory that says that everything starts with the […]

The Planned Koch Brothers’ Political Takeover

February 8th, 2012 · Comments Off on The Planned Koch Brothers’ Political Takeover · Capitalism, Human Rights, Politics, Populism

You must understand one thing. A vote for a Republican is a vote for Neo-Fascist group whose only ultimate political strategy is to put the opposition…who will be in enormous numbers…into concentration camps. Before you scoff and cry conspiracy nut, look at it logically. Citizens United makes it possible…it has already happened…for billionaires to elect […]

Here Comes the Election Year Propaganda

January 27th, 2012 · Comments Off on Here Comes the Election Year Propaganda · Economics, Health Care, Jobs, Labor, Politics, Populism, Taxes

If you think you have been lied to before…you ain’t seen nuthin’ yet. It’s an election year and therefore the amount and the degree of inaccuracy of Republican statements will increase, and already have increased, exponentially. Here are just a few examples. Both Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney have blamed Barack Obama for the lack […]

The Parable of the Thieves

January 22nd, 2012 · Comments Off on The Parable of the Thieves · Health Care, Lobbying, Media, Politics, Populism, Taxes, Wall Street

When reason fails, people fall back on superstition. The American society has long operated under the basic principle that hard work creates abundance and abundance may solve all our earthly ills. When that logic, which has always been one of our foundations, along with “fair play” and “brotherhood” among citizens…although a creaky stair-climb with many […]

Since the Fall of 2008, the U.S. economy a dynamic enterprise of about $15 trillion dollars, as measured in employment, has fallen by about 8 million people.

Unless You Are a Millionaire–or a Bigot–You Should Not Vote Republican.

October 10th, 2011 · Comments Off on Unless You Are a Millionaire–or a Bigot–You Should Not Vote Republican. · Capitalism, Politics, Populism

It is time that we all faced facts, looked at ourselves in the mirror and asked ourselves who we are. If you are part of a group that makes racial slurs and condones the bigoted signs of demonstrators or laughs at the racist jokes of radio commentators, or applauds the disrespect for the Presidency of […]
