OBAMA: Multiemployer Pension Reform Act of 2014 about to SEVERELY slash at least 1,000,000 Elderly private sector workers’ economic throats.

No bail out for Elderly Worker’s Pensions, only banksters’ and their gambling. Now that’s a Democratic Party we can be…..oh FUCK NO!

THIS DECREASES AGGREGATE DEMAND (AKA the little peoples’ economy) AS DOES THE $170 BILLION IN CUTS TO FEDERAL WORK FORCE COSTS – INCLUDING RETIREMENT BENEFITS – PROPOSED BY REPUBLICANS (see douche bag Senator Mike Enzi of Wyoming)

AND TO THINK ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS TAX THE MONEY HID BY MOSSACK FONSECA AND OTHERS.

Why Do the 99% Allow the 1% to Even Exist?

Throughout history, feudal Lords have controlled the masses, because they controlled the military and the "police" of their time, but most of all, the RELIGION. It's like that bumper sticker back in the 80's, which said "Religion is what keeps the poor from killing the rich". But if, as they say, the "one percent", or even a smaller group than that, controls the 99%, and hoards all the wealth that could be used for the common good, then WHY, do we even allow them to exist?

Our CHANCE TO Fire Many of CONgress is HERE!

HULU CANCELS THOM HARTMANN

This isn't about money for these right wing corporations, this is about ideology, well to a point it is. IN Canada in the fall of 2014 under our then right wing extremist government, with no advance warning , SIRIUSXM cancelled ALL of left wing radio from the US in Canada, a total blackout. At that time i was a subscriber, one morning I woke up to Bill Press, Stephanie Miller, Thom Hartmann and the rest cancelled on SIRIUS. To add insult to injury Thom Hartmann channel was replaced by crazed phony, money grubbing evangelical Joel Osteen.

Hulu

Why is my favorite show The Big Picture gone from Hulu?

Hillary’s political experience was accumulated over a period in which the 99% were brought to their knees and she’s already resigned herself to the fact change in favor of the People is not possible.

And if she does become president it will be in no small part to Superdelegates that are LOBBYISTS$$$.

We have GOT TO BREAK UP THE MEDIA and start properly informing voters.

Bernie could use his podium to push for a Voting Rights Amendment to the Constitution

The disenfranchisement in the primaries caused by the new Voter ID laws could be harnessed to push a constitutional amendment containing (presumably) non-controversial, popular changes to our national voting laws. There's a proposed amendment by Congressmen Pocan and Ellison that starts off well but I'd argue should be expanded to cover more of the ills of our current system.

Israel: Billionaire Haim Saban$$$ prepared to spend whatever it takes to get Hillary$$$ elected President.

Hillary is really no different than Scott Walker when it comes to doing the bidding of billionaires, and if elected we'll see it played out in her relationship with Israel.

Hillary Clinton is disgusting.

Watch That MOUTH In Bernie's Behalf!

All it can take is one guy with a BIG FAT MOUTH and an elevated platform to unleash the potentially most harmful muscle in a person's body ... an unguarded tongue to undo one of the greatest highlights of any candidate's night in his or her entire career in public service.

Fossil Fuels vs. Factory meat production

It seems that no one is willing to talk about the real issue creating global warming. It is the factory production of meat both here in the US and oversees. People in the know are aware of the issue but no one is willing to talk about. Please do some research on the issue.

Fighting for Good Government

Fighting for Good Government

I was curious about whether there were any lists available, which rank governments by how well they work. As it turns out, I found several of them on the internet. Clearly, the effectiveness of governance involves many variables and ranking them involves necessarily subjective judgments at some level. However, there are objective realities which pierce through peoples' biases and cause trends in what is observed. Indeed, the lists that I saw were pretty similar in their conclusions.
