Insidious Obama$$$: Trans Pacific Partnership – job\environment killing "NAFTA on steroids" – to be fast tracked.

This from the AFL-CIO and I would ask that it not be removed as such posts from the AFL-CIO have been in the past:

USPS should offer public cell phone service and internet

The purpose of the constitutional prescription for a government-run postal service was to facilitate communication and exchange of information between all citizens. Technological advances fulfilling the same purpose should not be excluded from this mandate.

The USPS should therefore offer for free, or for nominal fees, state-of-the-art telecomunication services, including high speed internet, phone services, and satellite for remote areas.

Net Neutrality: It's not just Comcast vs Netflix!

Forget Comcast vs Netflix! Never mind Yahoo vs Google! Those behemoths can afford to slug it out until time itself comes to an end.

Obama’s 2 Mega Pipelines: Enbridge’s Alberta Clipper and Keystone XL.

Ah yes, speaking of extra ordinary Climate Criminals, we have the democrats and their eagerness to fellate

Mugs

Cigarettes, one of the pushed drugs

Heroin buys people and guns, not creepy hugs

What a nice smile

Hiding a mile of guile

And takeout orders from the meanest mugs.

How The GOP Used Twitter To Stretch Election Laws

CNN, November 17, 2014

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Republicans and outside groups used anonymous Twitter accounts to share internal polling data ahead of the midterm elections, CNN has learned, a practice that raises questions about whether they violated campaign finance laws that prohibit coordination.

The twitter accounts were hidden in plain sight ...The profiles were publicly available but meaningless without knowledge of how to find them and decode the information, according to a source with knowledge of the activities.

Where have all the real social safety nets gone

A family is never will be an actual replacement for a real social safety net !

Obama’s Treasury Undersecrtary: Wall St involvement in any Small Business program will only raise the cost of funds to the business.

Unless, of course, Wall St decides to provide whatever “service” (aka “scam” or “skimming”) they are providing for free.

Messaging Must Be Better- Single-Issue Voters!

I've been a depressed political junkie since the Nov 1999 election was taken.

I've always been amazed how so many people vote against their best (economic) interest and then complain about the economy. It's becaiue they are passionate enough about one or two issues (religion, abortion, guns, racism, etc.) that they cant wait to get a chance to vote! I just heard that Democrats outspent Republicans on get-out-the-vote efforts 10-to-1 for this election cycle and there was record low turn-out.

Climate deal with China, Smarter than we think?

I wonder if the climate change deal with China might be even more clever than we think.

Not arguing that it is perfect, but I wonder if just having something in place before whatever Pacific trade deals are signed might spare some of the conservation / green energy provisions from the liability built into the trade deals?

It is looking inevitable (in the US and sadly here in Canada) that the Pacific trade deal will be signed, with provisions for companies to sue governments for losses of potential profit due to environmental regulations or limits..

Dirty Energy: California water crisis boils over; urgent, panic stricken, screams for drastic measures.

Gosh, how could anybody have seen this coming!? Poor Washington I guess they’ll have to turn to Wall St for help.

The other way we're subsidizing Walmart...

Most of us know how taxpayers subsidize Walmart's low wages with billions of dollars in Medicaid, food stamps, and other financial assistance for workers. But, did you know that we're also subsidizing the retail giant by paying the cost of their environmental destruction.
