Conservative Capitalism vs real free enterprise

hi tom. want to mention when CONservatives talk about capitalism they use it interchangeably with free enterprise. its a way they use to fool people that both are the same thing when they are really not. They do this because all they are really doing is protecting and advancing monopolies. as long as free markets are available things go great for the consumer with competition. Unfortunately many fall into the trap of debating issues along the lines that conservatives have defined rather than calling them out on the misnomers they are using.

Gov Chris Chrispy Kreme of New Jersey comes to WI to help Walker survive recall.

Jackson Browne

Thom, the words you spoke at the beginning of your conversation with JB were so beautiful and articulate. He is my heart and #1 all-time favorite. Hours and hours and hours..... Thank you for such a nice surprise!

4,000,000 Deaths in US Wars Since WWll

The death toll from wars the United States has carried out since WWll is more than 4,000,000. The importance of this number is to demonstrate on what scale the United States has waged war. This number is a conservative number. To come up with a number of the total dead from U.S. wars since WWll, is a way of grasping the destructive consequences of all this war making.

bin laden assassination

On the anniversary of Bin Laden's aasassination, let us remember why he was assassinated. The trial of Bin Laden would have revealed the true perpetrators, or at least the fact that Bin Laden had nothing or very little to do with 9-11. Why do the American public not demand a full accounting of what happened that fatefull day? Why do the American public run headlong with their leaders to invade other countries and kill thousands of innocent people based on obvious lies, half truths and deception?

Just for Thom (and other people who care)

Rachel Maddow Was Great on Sunday, and so was Hillary Rosen, on Meet The Press!

Rachel Maddow handed Republican consultant Alex Costelannos his head (figuratively speaking) with his condescension regarding the point she was making. If you haven't had a chance to see it, go to http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2012/05/01/dont-worry-your-pretty-little-head-darlin/.

July 4th 1776 - The First Brexit

The markets have recovered from the Brexit panic, but people are still reeling in the aftermath of the UKs vote to leave the European Union, at least in part because it seems like such an unprecedented action.

But it really isn't so unprecedented.
