Would some one please explain to me why we are not talking about stopping the 2 wars that are costing BILLIONS of DOLLARS every month.
As I understand the Afghanistan war costs the US tax payer approx $7 BILLION a month to keep going. In this time of debt and budget cuts why is this not the first piece of spending to be cut.
Thom could you please talk about this on your radio show.
Blue jeaned wind breaker wearing private security forces have descended on the State Capitol Building in Madison, Wisconsin.
The crisis of corporate influence over American democracy is the latest subject of award-winning Internet filmmaker, Annie Leonard, who on March 1st will release The Story of Citizens United v. FEC, an animated short.
What are the odds that a popular first term senator who has just written an autobiography would enter and win the presidential race during a time of great national upheaval? Not bad…just ask Obama!
I suggest that WORKING AND LURKING within the magician's "unnoticed hand" [in this case the VISIBLE HAND is the Left's KNEE JERK REACTION to all things Koch and all things Citizen's United which all knee-jerkers are watching intently] is perhaps the deeper and real reason behind why the GUVNA in Wisconsin is attacking unions in general.
For decades now, the religious right wing has been attempting to shift public funding for education into supporting their religious educational school systems. Its what I know as The School Voucher Project.

There is a vulgar expression from days of old that was applied to those who thought themselves to be superior to others. If one acted condescending and snobbish, people would say of them… “They think their S**T doesn’t stink!” Well, last night on ‘The Last Word’ with Lawrence O’Donnell one of his guests absolutely suited this nasty verbalization like a tailor-made piece of clothing.
Thom, please help get the word out on this group, another way for progressives to get active and stop the Tea Party

But he will have to change his behavior dramatically on all issues. I want to see actions by Obama that indicates he is putting up a fight for the average Taxpayer.
If you think Scott Walker's a hard case and piece of work, he's got a Republican cousin, Nikki Haley, in the heart of Dixie, South Carolina, the epitome of Sunbelt Plantation Mentality (on steroids!) No sooner than she was sworn into office and promising to "talk smack" to organized labor, she was [justifiably] hit with a federal lawsuit by the International Association of Machinists plus the AFL-CIO.

I must be out of my mind to keep on replying to a group of fellow, but far more, and I MEAN FAR MORE SOCIALLY CONSERVATIVE Catholics in Wisconsin who cannot see what's happening to their state, their middle class and even their own Church, no thanks to one very prominent Catholic, David Koch and his ever pliant, but arch-conservative non-denominational "Christian" puppet, Gov. Scott Walker.
Just out of my mind because I've been dealing with not only with invincibly ignorant people, but WILLFULLY INVINCIBLY IGNORANT sheople.
The right has been arguing that the left is being hypocritical. Why, they ask, does the left complain about the influence of corporations but not that of unions? When unions spend so much money on lobbying?
