Harry...Fix the Filibuster now!

Something is happening in this country and Harry Reid must seize on to it by passing filibuster reform to ensure that this progressive movement can freely march forward without Republican relics in the Senate obstructing it. And even if Republicans do take power in the Senate again in the future, and there is no filibuster, at least we'll know President Obama, when he had the chance, was able to put in place a strong flank of progressive judges that will last a generation. And those judges will serve for decades compared to a Republican majority which will only serve two years. In the long-run, it will still be better. Ultimately though, this election proves that progressivism is still alive, and the nation wants progressive judges to interpret law for the next generation. President Obama will have the power to do just that, but if Harry Reid doesn't kill the filibuster first so progressive judges can survive the nominating process, then we'll end up getting a bunch of Joe Liebermans on the bench...and that ain't progress.

The Good, The Bad and the Very Very Muckibusously Ugly!

The Good! *Residents of Troy, Michigan* Voters in Troy, Michigan removed their mayor from office yesterday - because of her blatant homophobic comments over the past few years. Shortlly after New York passed marriage equality - former Troy mayor Janice Daniels posted on Facebook that she had thrown out her "I Love New York" shirt "now that queers can get married there." And - earlier this year - she told high school students that homosexuality is a "dangerous mental disease" and compared it to the dangers of smoking. Daniels' ouster is another victory for LGBT equality in our nation.

On Election Day The Corporate Masters Will Come For Us...

First the corporate masters of the universe came for Greece, and we here in the United States did nothing. We watched with silence as corporate technocrats toppled the democratic government of Prime Minister George Papandreou and forced austerity on the Greek people against their will. We said nothing as unemployment rates spiraled out of control and suicide rates shot up 40%. We didn't flinch when a Greek pensioner walked up to Parliament and shot himself in the head, leaving behind a letter blaming austerity that read quote, "I cannot find any other form of struggle except a dignified end before I have to start scrounging for food from rubbish bins." This week, the Conservative Greek government unveiled a new round of austerity cuts for the Greek people, who've already lost their universal healthcare system to the banister masters. Pensioners and public workers will again be hit the hardest, just so these corporate masters can collect their returns on their failed investments. And none of us here in the United States are asking any questions as Greece descends into chaos. The main question being, "What's the point of austerity?" Austerity has nothing to do with paying down Greek's debt. After these new austerity measures, Greece's current debt ratio will soar from 165% of GDP to 190% of GDP, making it even more difficult in the long run to pay down any debts. On top of that, the economy is projected to contract 4.5% in 2013, compared to previous prediction of 3.9%. And ...
