Education and money!

Thom is right about kids being stuck with massive amounts of debt after college; but it's actually more extreme than even he says. I, personally, graduated from a smaller and more "affordable" art schools in 2007. I was strapped with a whopping total of sixty (yes that's a 60) thousand dollars in loans and I received scholarship money when I attended. I couldn't consolidate them because they were estimated at being a seven hundred dollar monthly payment.

Dccc email assault

I am being inundated with DCCC requests for $3. I get emails almost daily, from Barney Frank, Bill Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, James Carvell, and others. It recently informed me that my account was inactive. I have no account! I have donated to Dennis Kucinich, Wisconsin recall, moveon.org, but never directly to the DCCC. This media assault on me and other Democrats is reminiscent of the tactics of those who I do not support. We, and I include myself with the DCCC, are behaving like the right wing political machine, and I wanted to be different from them

Access to Free Speech/RTTv

I had the Direct Tv guy out to my house for a tech problem. I asked him why I couldn't get channel 348, Free Speech or RT Tv in my office.

After a lengthy discussion with the home office, I was told that this network, although it is part of my promised programming, is only available with a high def receiver-hence, the reason I'm able to get it in the other room. They said that this is how RT broadcasts in high def--only it's not a high def station. In essence, most people who watch Direct TV don't know abou this program unless they have high def receivers.

A Circular Firing Squad on the Left is MANDATORY

Give me a frigg'n brake!

This Democratic President is soooooo far right,

The Economy is soooooo rigged against the middle and poor classes,

Unemployment has grown inexcusable,

Corporate Rights have grown inexcusable,

We have to start culling the weak links in the Left's ranks and this includes voting President "milk toast" OUT in 2012!

If this hurts the left, then the target of squad needs to GET LOST

The Republican Cult of Mental Illness

Why the Kochs Really Embraced Criminal Justice Reform...

It looks like the Koch brothers have scammed us once again.

When news first came out that Charles and David Koch -- the Koch brothers -- were supporting criminal justice reform efforts in Congress, many of us thought, "Wow, they're actually doing something good for once."

And for good reason, too.
