Almost everywhere we turn we see contradiction in people's positions on a wide range of issues. Polls show that almost everyone was for the war in Iraq but a far smaller % are for the taxes that would pay for it. They prefer to believe that government is so wasteful, not because they know for sure but merely because they've been told it is – an erroneous meme that is in perfect harmony with the idea that the entire problem is a type of person inferior to them. It’s surprisingly easy to co-opt people in that way.
Collier County, Florida -- Have you heard the one about a homeowner foreclosing on a bank?
Well, it has happened in Florida and involves a North Carolina based bank.
Instead of Bank of America foreclosing on some Florida homeowner, the homeowners had sheriff's deputies foreclose on the bank.
It started five months ago when Bank of America filed foreclosure papers on the home of a couple, who didn't owe a dime on their home.
The couple said they paid cash for the house.
The camp whose name was Sparta,
perched high upon the scrub,
was the hottest place in Florida,
with showers and nary a tub.
And there we sang and made our beds,
learned to swim and shoot,
as carefree as our Congress
who doesn't give a hoot.
But should we put them in those cabins,
nailed up screen on wood,
and make them scrub a toilet,
it wouldn't do much good.
If social security is headed down the path of destruction, then I want my money back! I want every dime that I have paid in social security taxes returned with interest! Social Security was a contract made between the people of America with all of the other people of America. It was designed so that we would all support each other.
But things have changed over the years. Some people want to get out of the contract and others want to steal the money in the bank! I want out! And I want my money!
Here in Wisconsin temperatures seem to be peaking about twice a week
Oh well, I guess it's like cigarettes, booze, bad diet, lack of exercise, etc... Humans are just going to live the way we want to regardless of whether or not it is self-destructive
I'm glad I don't have kids

President Obama needs to appoint progressive judges immediately at the beginning of his next term. We are witness to a truely obstructionist House.We have to provide the president with a majority(preferably filibuster proof) congress.His judges aren't being approved.The Judicial Branch is the unseen power we all have to be aware of.The Supreme Court needs to become more independent.
If the direction initiated by President Jimmy Carter had been continued and improved upon,the rest of the world would be looking at our example;"LIVE BY EXAMPLE"! A green economy would be a lifestyle by now.
Thom has said many times that he has the most intelligent listeners tuned-in to his radio program. I agree with that assessment, so I am asking those folks to join me in my drive to bring some NEW ideas to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Rick Scott, is a monster, pure and simple. He is out to
eradicate all poverty by killing the poor off; All elderly who
rely on social programs; by killing them off; All social
programs that middle and lower class income groups (who
will not survive without) depend upon... you guessed it, BY
KILLING THEM OFF.

There is no way Wall Street is going to allow washington - which they basically run - to lose them the kind of money we are talking about if the govt defaults. It is all just theatre.
