Of Course the Fraidycat Republicans had to Bunker-up on Monday

Of Course the Fraidycat Republicans Bunkered up on Monday in Tampa. They called off their Greatest Show because it was raining. Well, not exactly. As usual and right on cue these kneejerkers do things more for what they fear than for what actually is. At the slightest hint of anything dangerous, that's what frightened, low self-esteeme people with do. Bunker up, and hunt for those Evil WMD! Again. Etc. The WMD d'jour are everywhere!!!! Run and hide!

California's Golden Age of High Taxes and Greatest Growth

A historical look at the debated issue of over taxation of business. In the 50's and 60's the taxes on $100,000($2 million in today’s dollars) was at 60%, with a California tax of 5% added on.

After three weeks no Thom

After three weeks of no Thom, first full week is interviews with broken records who repeat and repeat the same old LIES, over and over and over. WHY, why interview TOOLS who make a living LYING. Who said, Tell (repeat) a BIG lie offend enough and people (fools) will believe it.

I like listen to Thom for new and informative infromation, the lies of the right the same OLD same OLD BS.

Many be next week???????

Hey Thom welcome back! This is about the Obama deficit.

I have listened closely and every time this question is answered they leave out one item. I believe to b a series of off budget expenditures. At the time they were called supplemental budgets. Under the Bush administration it was a way of making his budgets look valid. This is the point that they're arguing. When Pres. Obama won the office he immediately started keeping books in a forthright manner. I don't believe he ever used supplemental budgeting in the way the Bush administration did. It hid annual expenditures from the taxpayers.

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.
