Thank you Governor Tom Wolf for standing against racism

Thank you Gov. Tom Wolf is standing up against the reich wing fascist GOP and allowing Syrian refugees in our state

SOGLIN: Democrats in Madison, WI aid Out-of-State Corp’s sticking a shiv to residents in a quick hit and run designed to profit$$$ off Low Income Housing Tax Credit.

People in Wisconsin aren’t all crazy. Democrats have and continue to be a really really crappy political alternative.
Anyway Heartland Housing and the City of Madison are going to warehouse over 200 homeless in a building that is somehow going to fit in a narrow drainage ditch back behind the dumpsters of an aging strip mall. Yea, sounds ideal doesn’t it?

all of a sudding, popeye?

Once the donald said Bush lied us into you know what, hartmanns balls have gotten a little bigger. So I won't draw an analogy about his cheerleading, just that when you say "Thom? What abou tthe obvious controlled way that the buildings came down?"

Obama Third Term

When I look at all the candidates, Is the best option, Obama 3rd term? If the president thougth this was an option, would he be promoting the trade agreement?

War Crimes: Bush Administration

It is an extreme embarrassment knowing what we know today about the Bush Administration's illegal efforts to initiate the war in Iraq. They planned it 1-year in advance and worked with Tony Blair to mislead the citizens of the US and the UK. If you need the links, I can provide them. This is now a substantiated fact given the admissions of Tony Blair but the revelations of George Tenant, former Director of the CIA.

My only question is: How and when will the Bush Administration be brought to justice? When will they be prosecuted, convicted and imprisoned?

Boycott the Bullseye!

I just heard Thom say that Target plans to open its stores at 6PM on THANKSGIVING DAY. Here's a close approximation of the comment I just sent to Target corporate: "I understand that your stores will be open at 6pm on Thanksgiving Day. This is an intolerable attack on your employees and their families. As a result I refuse to ever spend one stinking cent in any of your stores and I will encourage everyone I know to follow my example. Have a good corporate death". I hope whichever poor unfortunate at Target gets to read that will at least find it entertaining.

This isn't the first time Refugees have been refused.

“ May–June 1939, the United States refused to admit over 900 Jewish refugees who had sailed from Hamburg, Germany, denied permission to land in the United States, the ship was forced to return to Europe. Of the 908 St. Louis passengers who returned to Europe, 254 (nearly 28 percent) are known to have died in the Holocaust.

Walker to switch State Employees to Self Insurance Program that he will head-up.

Does he even know what an actuary is?
Seriously though, this is a blatant play by the WI-GOP to get their hands on a BIG pool of insurance premiums$$$$$ being paid by State Employees. And once they get their hands on that pool$$$$ they will squander it and be unable to honor claims.

Spain Issues an ARREST Warrant for NETANYAHU

Israel wants to quash an arrest warrant prepared by a Spanish judge for Benjamin Netanyahu over the deadly 2010 IDF attack on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla that killed ten people. The Israeli PM and six other former ministers would be arrested if they set foot on Spanish soil. That would be a magnificent day, for justice in the world.

Blue/Red Differences

IT IS SO OBVIOUS ! ! - The things preceding the Middle East issues, the disasterous TPP, the out-of-control top CEOs' incomes, etc., etc., etc. - all the things that we talk about.

My philosophy is of gratitude, joy, praise, mysticism, etc. and I really try to not think of "us" and "them" since we all are, but I still wonder if people on the extreme right are "wired differently".


If you haven't read the Assassinations Record Review Board records of 1996 in full, you're way behind in the JFK case. I respect Thom greatly, but from my reading the 26 volumes, et al, the shots came from...........the Pentagon. Look here, the left is the guy born in 1939 Lee Harvey Oswald, tall, bull knecked. Right Harvey Oswald, spoke perfect Russian, fall guy! Go to and be blown away I think.

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.
