"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
We need an excess profits tax and an excess compensation tax.
As it is, corporations have no reason to limit either profits or executive compensation. As a result, corporations can increase executive compensation with impunity, E.G., the CEO of United Health Services made over $100 Million last year, but that was paid for by premium increases, not operational effiencies. Insurance companies (in particular) go to the insurance board complaining that the ROI is not what it should be and get a premium increase. Utility companies also engage in this practice.
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.

So, this letter is from Larry E. Craig, that toe-tapping, back-peddling, SCIENCE BELIEVER?
The last guest stated that more WEALTH was created under Reagan. What else??? Jobs, bridges, highways? No...just wealth.

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
During a recent flight from DTW, my spouse had to go through the scanner because all regular passengers were being directed to the scanner. The 1st class passengers were being sent to the metal detector !
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.
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
From the gullibility of their voters to the socio-pathic policies of Walker and Bachman the further right you go in the Republican Party the more acute the signs of mental illness become.
