To those who claim the Republicans are restricting people from voting (how about those Black Panthers in Philadelphia blocking that polling booth with blackjacks in their hands and our wonderful AG Holder doing nothing!)
You are wrong when you state that we have to change trade policy to turn the economy around. NAFTA and CAFTA would not be possible if the United States paid the same amount for gasoline and petroleum, as Germany or France or any other developed nation, it would void NAFTA and CAFTA. For anyone to look at the American economy over the past 30 years and deduce that it's bad trade deals and lack of tariffs that run the economy, you're naïve. This economy was developed around oil.
Hey, Dorothy just hit the heart of the matter with her comments on Thom's radio program. DOROTHY speaks truth to power, with love. No one want so put Obama down, but he just doesn't have the spine we thought he did - talk, however powerful, is cheap. His actions tell us all we need to know - why "settle" for his schmaltz?
It is time to remind people about one of the best labor movies ever made - The Grapes Of Wrath.
Made in 1940, just before World War II, TGOW was an unfiltered view of the Great Depression. The Joad Family, whose oldest son was portrayed by Henry Fonda, were sharecroppers who were forced off their land after the Dustbowl effects ruined their farm.
After raising $250 for a truck that was a jalopy in 1940 and supplies, 12 people loaded their furniture and belongings into its bed, climbed in and set out on Route 66 to pick oranges in California.
After the Teapublican Debate, a lot of attention has been focused on the audience reaction to the Health Care question Wolf Blitzer posed to Ron Paul. More consideration should be given to the question itself.
I’ve deduced through observation that to be a Republican today, one must be rich, cruel, or ignorant i.e. low information voter, and they are not mutually exclusive. I can understand why a rich person would vote Republican because the Republican Party supports the Rich, as evidenced, for example, by the low tax rates for the privilaged. But I cannot understand why a poor working person would vote Republican against their own best self interest or against my best interest unless, of course, they fall into the latter two.
