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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Returning to Bush-Cheney Politics

October 30th, 2010 · Comments Off on Returning to Bush-Cheney Politics · Politics

We are about to elect a Neocon-Republican House of Representatives—if all the numbers are correct—that will do its best to further set back the Middle Class and return us to the policies of “Everything for the Rich” of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. Before you vote, please remember what happened between 2001-2008. We had […]

October 29th, 2010 · Comments Off on Armageddon · Politics

Here they come, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: McConnell, Vitter, DeMint and Boehner. The voters say: start with a plague on all your houses. Yet they visit the plague itself, the obstructive, propagandistic, elitist Republican Party on all of us. War, famine and death…well, we already have the first (a double-header) and part of […]

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 […]

Tea Party Express to Disaster

October 20th, 2010 · Comments Off on Tea Party Express to Disaster · Politics

A recent survey showed that only 5% of the Tea Party signs were racist, or called the President a Muslim or said that he was not born in America and therefore had not been eligible to be President. And who did the survey? The very impartial person who did this was a Cato Institute intern. […]

What Republicans Will Do If Elected

October 16th, 2010 · Comments Off on What Republicans Will Do If Elected · Media, Politics, Populism

We now know what the Republicans want. Not the Tea Party members. They are merely dupes. Yes, dupes. If you are concerned about government spending you don’t rail at the Party that cut spending for 8 years, even going so far as to take hit after hit in the Congressional elections. So many House of […]

Momentous Election in the Age of the “Hick”

October 12th, 2010 · Comments Off on Momentous Election in the Age of the “Hick” · Politics

It is 2010 and the lights are going out all over America. Slowly winding down to darkness. If darkness covers the land of opportunity, when will we find our way forward again? There is no question now about our educational system. It has failed us, and the warnings of Newton Minow, some fifty years ago […]

The Danger in a Republican Takeover of Government

September 23rd, 2010 · Comments Off on The Danger in a Republican Takeover of Government · Lobbying, Media, Politics

It is pretty clear now what is happening. The Republicans, so close to a literal takeover of the government under Bush and Cheney (see Presidential rule # 51) have decided that they will attempt a literal political coup. Some of the statements made by the new Tea Party Republican Senatorial candidates (they are all Republicans) […]
