Merry Christmas to all a clear-cut victory for Obama and the progressive agenda

What really happened it appears that John Boehner and Mitch O'Connell tried to sidestep a quagmire and the young upstart Eric Cantor would have none of it. Eric Cantor truly had his moment in the sun, until the man on the white horse rode up and saved Mitch McConnell and John Boehner from ridicule by their own party. It reminds me of an old joke. Those that always crap on you are not your enemies and those that pull you out of the crap aren't always your friends.

In West Java a long time ago, there lived a beautiful girl named Ocean Sumbi.

Why are we pursing ObamaCare when it is it Trillions$ cheaper to go with Medicare/caid for all?

Is it big government if you lay off all the government workers administering medicare/caide only to turn around and cut a check to an outside for profit insurance company (an inefficient intermediary) to do the same job for twice the dollar amount that the government employees used to do it for?!

Why did Obama cross-out the language ending the Health Insurance Industry’s Monopoly [ref. Tiabbi’s “Griftopia”]

How to get re-elected in a corrupt system:

1) give Wall Street Trillions

2) give the Oil and Gas industry free reign to operate with impunity - including giving them the People's resources for little next to nothing

3) give the Health Insurance Trillions.

Today's Declaration by Patrick Henry?

Today's Declaration by Patrick Henry?

I cannot say, for certain, what Patrick Henry would say regarding the current state of affairs in Washington, D.C.; but, I am going to do the best I can at framing what I think he would have to say about what is currently taking place there.

" GOP Payroll Tax Cut Demands! " ( the new ) " What Now Cartoon "

With the payroll tax cut being held for hostage by the GOP, and the demands not getting much media attention beyond the one year, two month comparison, I thought this was an important topic for a cartoon to share some of the vile details of their demands. This GOP could care less about people and the environment!

a weird thought

The People were never really given a chance to decide whether they wanted the Keystone Pipeline built.

Corruption between the State Department and Lobbyists; Obama working with Hillary to frame the question of the Pipeline’s final approval on continued gymnastics at the EPA over Nebraska water; Construction starting even before a legitimate EPA review could be conducted much less formal approval of the pipeline by Obama; Hillary; like Scott Walker, holding public hearings on the Pipeline far, far, FAR from any major population centers to frustrate public input; David a

What's New, FIAT?

Back in the day, when I was young, mechanics refered to the Fiats of the day by their nickname "Fix It Again Tony". When Fiat became a partner in the saaving of Chrysler, or now Chrysler LLC, that old reputation lead to the question how will Fiat fix Chrysler?

I just saw the first example of that answer, a coupe that looks a bit like the Toyota Yaris. The 2012 Fiat 500 Pop will lease for 200 dollars a month, coming in at just under $16,000. What makes this car interesting is its warranty - which includes a three year, 36,000 mile scheduled maintenance program.

U.S.-Iraq Status of Forces Agreement

Before we get all excited about Obama "bringing the troops home", let's just remember that all he was doing was following the "U.S - Iraq Status of Forces Agreement", drafted by the Bush Administration and signed by G.W. in November of 2008.

How Stupid Has the Democratic Party Become?

Republicans haven’t taken over red states; Democrats have lost them by not running as real Democrats.

That’s my big takeaway from Alec MacGillis’ fascinating look into the biggest political mystery of our time: why poor white people in red states are not bothering to turn out to vote, leaving the field to Republicans elected by more affluent whites in those states.
