"sucker" synonyms, etc.

I like "sucker" because it sure gets their attention. Anyhoo, how about -

"profiled" or "the mark".

Funny conversation with husband. He was wondering why so many of his union buddies vote Repubican. I said since conservatives feminized the Democratic Party, his union friends are simply insecure about their masculinity. Therefore.... Democratic males have large penises than Republicans (and my husband is no exception).

Obama to move TPP forward by cutting Medicare by $700 million.

On Tuesday, something happened that no one expected: Thanks to the leadership of Senators Harry Reid, Elizabeth Warren, Sherrod Brown and Bernie Sanders – who were powered by the activism of hundreds of thousands of CREDO members and our allies in the progressive community – Democrats were able to slow down the progress of Fast Track trade authority for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) by blocking a key test vote.

Obamanation: “They are biocides, not pesticides – and they are creating an ecocide.”

Jesus. H. Christ. What this President is willing to subject us to is unbelievable. This from the Center for Food Safety.

They Are Biocides, Not Pesticides -- And They Are Creating an Ecocide

free will proven; ethics vs. morality

Or so I thought. But a few days later...

But not to forget: the knwledge was in my mind at the time, associating the term "free will" with my total intuitive knowledge.

But, though I may say that in many circumstances I would act differently having the knowledge I have now (this also raising the need to distinguish between a general vs. a one-time ability) this does not mean that the decision does not appear as a free choice in retrospect when so considered.


“Fixing” sentencing in response to Police murdering African-American males is necessary but not sufficient to fix the problem.

Rahm Emmanuel exemplifies American society’s core problem in dealing with disadvantaged members of our society. Policies like his – especially the closing of 50 schools in poor neighborhoods - create the problem that later bloom into the huge racial disparities in sentencing that we are seeing come out of our judicial system. Such policies put a class of People at a disadvantage. In fact, all of American society is premised on an economic system where wealth is gained by disenfranchising and dispossessing those who have less of a voice in how the system w

“No one worked harder than B.B. No one inspired more up-and-coming artists," the president said. "No one did more to spread the gospel of the blues."

Should We Put an End to Free Trade Agreements?

Should We Put an End to Free Trade Agreements?

The Trans-Pacific Partnership deal really bothers me. Actually, so do all the other so-called "free trade agreements." I have watched over the years as nations have traded away their sovereignty to international corporations, and "raced to the bottom" as jobs have been shipped to the nations with the absolute worst conditions -- the lowest wages, the least environmental or safety regulations, the fewest workers' rights.

Minimum Wage, Monopoly and Affordable Living

In 1988, I was hired by A.C. Nielsen as a new college graduate. It was my first real job and included a company car, expense account and an entry level salary of $25k.

In 2015, I earn an entry level salary of $30k for a full-time, permanent, union position with a local Housing Authority. No company car. No expense account. I bike commute every day (by choice, I should add.)

The minimum wage increased gradually 19 times (from $3.85 to $9.47) between 1988 and 2015 in Washington State, where I presently reside.

Censorship: Facebook and Telecom giants to hand-pick services accessible on the Internet.

This is a blatant example of a monopoly for an information provider. The product is information based services and Facebook and Telecom giants have a monopoly over it. What’s the problem? Where is the Federal government?

Oh, and by the way FUCK ZUCKERBURG!

This from OpenMedia:

People in countries like India, Brazil, Zimbabwe, and Paraguay are outraged over Mark Zuckerberg’s plan to control what billions of soon-to-be Internet users do online.1
