The system works exactly as designed

Contrary to what the Obama Democrats claimed, the face-off in Congress did not mean that the nation’s politics were “dysfunctional”. The politics of the US were functioning precisely as the Founding Fathers intended: the legislature was acting as a check on the power of the executive.

You are wrong again

If you, as an individual, or a corporation, spend $1.50 for every $1.00 you take in, and continually borrow more money to pay past due bills, your credit rating would soon become non existent in a very short time. This has nothing to do with the Tea party but everything to do with continual deficit spending. The chickens have come home to roost. God bless the Tea Party for helping to force this point out to the gas bags in Washington D.C. that are just posturing to be re-elected.

What can the progress thinking american people do

I am sick and tired of the lack of the truth, regarding the blatant and deliberate attack on the american middle-class by the idiotic republican congress and the corporate traitors, like the Koch brothers.. Republican don't represent anyone except the so called job creators ,well where the hell are the jobs. I can't believe that the press would fall right in line with the radical right wing tea party rejects. Believing anything that Murdock run Fox News Corp.propagandize the news, they are the biggest liars. Thank goodness for programs li

Where should we run? And, should we?

Thom,

First, thank you for the work you do.

Second, in consideration of the tanking of the dollar, and future outlook for us who have a little cash saved for retirement, where should we put our money?

Slouching Toward Extinction Now, Waking Up Wise Tomorrow

"...The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst

Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?" —William Butler Yeats (1865-1939), THE SECOND COMING

Why the U.S.A. is Doomed.

And its decline is breathtaking, astonishing. Here's one answer to "Why's that?" Need to cut the budget? Slash funding for education. Educators decry the drastic cuts? Then why in god’s name aren’t those educators politically active? People who sit on their asses while the nation careens to ruin deserve a President Bachmann.

Verizon Strike

I'm one of over 45,000 CWA and IBEW on strike against Verizon. This corporation has looked around at what's going on in Ohio, Wisconsin amd other anti-labor situations and want in on the action. The problem is Verizon isn't hurting, in fact over the past 4 1/2 years they've made over $22.5 billion, paid their top 5 executives over $258 million during the same period, paid no taxes last year and still managed to get a $1.3 billion tax refund.

Geithner to stay on: Obama doesn’t want appointment of Wall Street Banker to Treasury to influence Voters in 2012 election.

Will Jamie Dimon of JP Morgan Chase be the next head of Treasury?

For the Government to worry about the Bond Market is for them to discount the option of raising taxes on the Super Rich.

Activism Works!

When he was elected, President Obama told us to push him. Well, it looks like we may have pushed hard enough when it comes to the Keystone XL pipeline.
