The Congressional Millionaire

The evening news announced, "47% of the members of Congress are millionaires."

That means 53% of Congress is lying. If we could convert just 7% of the liars, we would quash more than 50% of our daily troubles.

Indefinite detention proposed…

Everyone please read about 'indefinite detention' proposed in sections 1031 and 1032 in S.1253, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (NDAA) now under consideration by the Senate! Another handy 'tool' to go along 'non-lethal' or 'less-lethal' and sonic LRAD in the modern arsenal of those protecting us. Sounds like treason to me! or were all my history, government, and civics classes in the 50's and 60's complete b.s.?

A Capital Idea Part 93: I Occupied Riverside, and I Liked it

On Sunday morning, I noticed a post on Facebook from Occupy Riverside which said that they would be having an "education day" that day with various workshops. I checked the workshop schedule, and decided that this was the day for me to make my first appearance at an Occupy site. Thus, I found myself headed for downtown Riverside, CA that afternoon.

Is Obama cutting Disabled Vets benefits ?

Rascal

Thom/Staff,

Please post the facts and figures you stated in the second hour today. Where did this information come from?

Thanks for all you do!

Ignore the Occupy protests at your own peril ...

... No, that is not a threat, hopefully it's a wake up call.

Recuse Scalia and Thomas from Healthcare ruling

Let us get the ball rolling so these two with a vested interest recuse themselves from the hearing on Affordable Care Act. With a groundswell of support it could happen.

still ranting?

The 99% movement risks the characterization of others as only amorphous disquiet, rather than the demand for revenue/investment to remedy immediate stultification and damage, as well as systemic reforms that preclude, or at least disincentive-ize the "too big to fail" monopolizing and profiteering which has had such terrible consequences (rather than re-enforcing/re-entrenching them) by the majority of us.

Hire a Prisoner, Help the Rich

For profit prisons, for profit schools, for profit medical care, etc. Why Calperson even found a way to profit from posting on TH Community. Well, there are lots of profiteers these days, many of them in the U.S. Congress. But nobody beats the one percenters.

The Problem of the Establishment

One thing that both parties have in common in this primary season is the fact that there's a sharp divide between "We, the People" populism, and the rich and powerful Washington establishment.

On the Republican side, Donald Trump is leading the race by running on a populist platform based on the fact that he's not beholden to the billionaires or lobbyists, and that he's never been part of the political establishment.
