Entitlement Hater Paul Ryan Was A Social Security Baby

By Ray Medeiros

When Representative Paul Ryan was 16 years old , tragedy struck his family. His 55 year old father had passed away from a heart attack. Young Paul Ryan found his father’s lifeless body and was burdened by the fact that he had to tell his mother and siblings of this horrible situation.

WikiLeaks: Saudis often warned U.S. about oil speculators

  • From McClatchy News Service: What role Wall Street investors play in the high cost of oil is a hotly debated topic in Washington. The Obama administration, the Bush administration before it and Congress have been slow to take steps to rein in speculators.

When Protesting Turns to Activising on THE Complaints...

I just thought that: as Madison moves into its "action" stage AFTER Wisconsin screwed up their 2010 elections due to "teenage pouting"...as the unions "turn more local and less aligned with the 'faux dems" [aka...republicans in blue suits]...as the usual 1960s style lefty "complainers" are now only hearing themselves as they STILL complain-and STILL do NOTHING but complain, that I would repost what I think will be the handbook for future "public activisms"...for THIS century. Its 2011 and NO LONGER 1968,,,GET IT YET???

The Nobel Winner

When is President Obama, finally going to earn the Nobel Prize for Peace he was given?

On the issue of makers and takers the makers take more than they make! And they took the Bush tax cuts intended to create jobs and growth and they made excuses.

We are forever subservient to the oil industry. Second, and Wall Street. First.

Bernie Sanders' big win in New Hampshire has given his campaign a big boost, but even Bernie knows that there's still a long primary season ahead.

One of the biggest criticisms about Bernie Sanders, one that I hear frequently from pro-Clinton callers, is that Bernie Sanders could be the next George McGovern.
