Feeling alone out in the "red" lands?

There was a caller from OK today who thought he was the only progressive person in the state, and didn't know what to do.

Well, you are not alone. Check out http://the99spring.com/ and find like minded people, even in OK, and all around the country! You don't have to feel alone, there many people out there in your city, town and state, who share your views. You will find them at http://the99spring.com/!

Sanders continues the lie...

While the SS Trust Fund does indeed have the trillions in Treasuries Bernie talks about and further, that it is also true that these Treasuries are available to be redeemed to pay SS claims, the fact of the matter is that when these Treasuries are redeemed, they are redeemed against the General Fund of the US. The General Fund runs at a deficit and everytime the SS needs money the General Fund must borrow more and more money.

Borrowed an image from your show. Keep up the great work, Thom

See image below.

pogo online and Scott Walker

I was just playing a game on pogo.com. The game has a chat area off to the right. I mentioned that Scott Walker was going to go down as governor of Wisconsin and was immediately kicked off the game. I was also not allowed to log back on.

This is insane. Does the long arm of the law really reach online games?

Us and Them

Most people's religious viewpoints are Us and Them. Us has the right beliefs. Them do not. Us may have been chosen before the world was made. Them weren't. Us are in communication with the true supreme being. Them aren't. Us will be rescued off this planet when things get too bad. So sorry, but them won't be. Us are bound for heaven. Them are going to hell. I don't want a President who is Us and Them.

TAX THE INTERNET!

Another blow to an American institution as the Encyclopedia Britannica stops production of it's print edition, and now will only be available to those who can afford to send their 1500.00 computers/printers/hardware to a landfill every 2 years, buy all new hardware/software, and pay $100.00/month for broadband. The "Information Superhighway" is doing quite well on its own ("Thank you very much" as Thom would say). It's hightime we stop subsidizing the internet through tax breaks, and level the playing field.

Senator Sanders blame your own party

Senator Bernie Sanders spoke on Friday's Thom show that the infrastructure in the United States is quite bad. I agree with him. Where were the Democratic who had both houses of Congress in high majorities in President Obama's first two years. I didn’t see any one put up a infer-structure jobs bill. All they were interested was to take care of our health care and have the Government run it soon.

not just talk

Mitt Romney's promises to overturn Roe v. Wade , limit access to birth control, and "get rid of" Planned Parenthood are reflected in his budget plan (indistinguishable from Ryan plan) and any attempt to "walk back" that position would be as unbelievable as any other flip-flop for which he has become infamous. Lying about the President's positions, I suspect, is meant to deflect honest criticism of the "devil's bargain" Mr.

Scalia's embarrassing regression

While the right seems to be preoccupied with depicting the Solicitor General's arguments before the SCOTUS as less than stellar, I would suggest that it is more of a reflection upon the court itself. After seriously studying the healthcare mandate in relation to the whole statute, and soberly preparing for argument before the most prestigious court in the world, the Solicitor General was treated to a sideshow of low-grade "humor" by Justice Antonin Scalia.

Would President Obama do the same?

Do you feel if Meg Whitman (President and Chief Executive Officer of Hewlett-Packard) and Carly Fionnia (both Republicans) were in the same shoes as Virgina Rometty (IBM President and CEO) would President Obama agree they should be allowed entrance to Augusta National Golf Club too?

Information about Brazil's recovery

This is a follow up on a caller from Thursday.

This information is from page 11 from a report by the Congressional Research Service.

Death Penalty

97% in favour of abolishing the death penaly - astounding. Just goes to show that the American people (not the government) are as caring and compassionate as we are in Canada. When are these officials going to realize that an eye for an eye makes us all blind?

President Obama should have intervened in the execution of Troy Davis and thereby missed an opportunity to prevent an injustice.

Drug test Corporations?

The other day on Thom’s show there was a discussion about drug testing for people on public assistance. I forget who brought this idea up, then the oil companies CEO should be drug tested too. I totally agree with this statement. Under equal protection under the 14th amendment of the constitution it should be only fair that any person(including corporation) must have drug testing. I think Florida requires any person on public assistance to submit to drug testing.

Republicans and tomatoes

This just in a new scientific study of tomatoes shows that eating tomatoes will shorten a person’s life by 50 years. The Republicans have now announced huge subsides and tax benefits allowing every American family to be able afford tomatoes. In other news scientist have discovered that eating broccoli can extend a person life by 50 years and prevent all diseases. The Republican party has now announced the ban of broccoli production and import of broccoli into the United states.

Republicans have Rejected the Republican Party

Now that John Kasich and Ted Cruz have dropped out, it’s pretty much official: Donald Trump is the 2016 Republican nominee for president.

The pundits never saw this coming, but they should have. The Republican Party has been running a scam on its base for decades now, and voters were bound to discover this scam sooner or later.
