Pathetic Barac O’Blahblah and voters cutting off their noses to spite their faces.

O’bama is taking the wrong message from his second shellacking.

Voters are not calling on him to be more republican or to drift further to the right, even though so doing could be made to serve his personal goals$$$ and the agenda of the Democratic Party.

WHY RADICAL CONSERVATIVES ARE MORE LIKELY TO VOTE THAN RADICAL LIBERALS

WHY RADICAL CONSERVATIVES ARE MORE LIKELY TO VOTE THAN RADICAL LIBERALS

Mitch McConnell said in his victory speech, "It's time to go in a new direction. It's time to turn this country around. And I will not let you down." And the new direction he's going to take the country?........well, you don't want to know.....perhaps a corporate theocracy? A theorporatocracy?

WHY CAMPAIGN FINANCE REFORM WON'T REFORM

WHY CAMPAIGN FINANCE REFORM WON'T REFORM.

The most frightening thing I heard on Election night 2014.

I heard the following phrase (or something very close to it) used on EVERY mainstream network I watched last night, CBS, NBC, ABC and MSNBC -

"Scott Walker must now be considered as a possible candidate for the 2016 Presidential race."

Damn ... gives me chills just typing those words.

Inspection- The Problem is the Democratic Party (and the Two Party System)

Just after the election of 2012 I started saying, "Time to get engaged for 2014," especially after the Republican's autopsy when they doubled down on all they had been told was "the problem." Especially when they combined that with talking about the big win in 2014," But here's what the leaders of the Democratic Party did...
  Nothing.
  A year ago I asked, "So will they engage now?" And what they did was...
  Nothing.

Advertising Works

Attributed to many authors, it’s a well-known fact that advertising works half of the time, but we just don’t know which half. When 40 billionaires pump mostly of the four billion dollars (an unprecedented amount in the history of the United States thanks to Citizens United) into the Republican advertising campaign, the results are predictable. Which half did you swallow?

Mitch McAsshole (R-KY) re-elected.

Voter Suppression?!?: People walk out of the auditorium when O’blah blah speaks to rally support for MD Governor candidate.

Their personal agenda$$$ advance, and the People pay the price.

Fox News violates rules for reporting exit polls.

Too bad democrats under O’bama didn’t get money out of politics when they had the chance.

Eliminationism

Mike Papantonio brought up the definition of "Eliminationism" today. Eliminationism encourages the contempt (hate) talker to ridicule, supress and ignore the opinions that are different from the from the audience. But anyone who has participated in these pages has run into a few Eliminiationists, and I find it disheartening, dissapointing and inconsistentent with what Thom Hartmann says he stands for, These people don't just troll, antagonize, they do it to the point that people that debate/disscussion shuts down, as most people find such abuse offensive.

N.C. Teachers

Today I was listening to two of my teammates (teachers I work closely with) discussing how they needed to hurry out to vote Kay Hagan( D) out! It is unbelievable to listen to teachers who are supposed to be informed that Rep's do not support ED. in NC. These two are also women!. Now I know there is no hope for education and/ or Democrats in this state!

Paper Ballot? Just Ask!!

Hi, Friends! Happy Voting Day! I am a resident of Texas, & I voted last week. After I signed my name, I said (respectfully loudly), "I'd like a paper ballot, please!" They said they don't have any for us. I said I'd like to do it that way so I have a record of my vote.

Solar Power Breakthrough, Ready for Squashing?

A research team at the University of California at San Diego has developed a nanoparticle based solar power material capable of capturing 90% of sunlight and converting it into heat, with capabilities of withstanding very high temperatures and being outdoors with little need for maintenance. Not only that, it can be retrofitted onto existing coal and oil fired power plants to create the necessary heat. You can read about it here: www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/10/141029095454.htm.

tea party propaganda

Right F'ing Here, is where I am going to post some of the most rediculous/obscene: lies, propaganda, rhetoric, and outright fearmongering that I and the better part of at least half of my generation are subjected to multiple times every single day by very many members apart of a couple of generations departed. You may agree or disagree with my opinions as is YOUR right but be warned, WE (as an entire generation united) will not continue to tolerate such abuses that have been so conspicuously perpetrated upon us.

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.
