GI Joe versus the Super Cool, Laser Shooting, Flying, Remote Control Robot

Let’s play a little game using our imagination. Imagine all of the world’s workers as toys that children (global corporations) may want to buy. Now imagine a large aisle of new toys in shiny brightly packaged boxes and that you are this child (global corporation) shopping with your birthday money (record profits).

SPANISH REVOLUTION - Spain in revolt and no one knows!

Awhile back I got this YouTube video from a friend. Confirmed with friend in Spain.


Are Republicans trying to cut entitlement programs or are they pushing possibly the biggest tax increase in history in order to destroy capitalism?

The Dog Gets It!

Hey Thom,

I keep hearing you refer to the Lampoon cover of the dog getting it if you don't buy the magazine & I thought you'd like the image available for impact (TV/blog/etc.)

Keep the flame on the idiots pal,

Republican strategy

I am enamored with the strategy Thom discusses concerning spend when in power...scream deficit when not. My research has found an interesting graph to support that. I would like some more info on the origin of it.

Expected 3,000 yr duration of Current Global Warming event paints dim, VERY DIM picture

If natural phenomena can be described by a standard normal distribution, this would suggest that we are facing 1,500 years of rising temperatures followed by 1,500 years of falling temperatures.

If true, given the current wide spread occurrence of temperatures over 100 F ...well there is no fracking way we are coming out the other side of this one.

2012 Presidential Election: Choosing Most Revered American or Choosing Your Poison?

I'm going with Poison

The Federal Reserve Prepares for Default

Quote from Thomas Jefferson, 1802

"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."

Where are the jobs?

Ever get tired of hearing about how corporations should "Give us jobs!" To me, I feel like we Americans are on our knees begging for pennies. It is so annoying to hear all of the whimpering about how much gold the corporations have in their coffers and they are not being very nice and share.

follow the money

Our money (borrowed) by Reagan, Bush & Bush was spent in the area of defense, growing the Military Industrial Fear Complex. I don't have the supporting information though I would bet the farm that this part of our economy was the beneficary of our national debt. This information needs to be part of the discussion of what we are facing in the current debt discussion and what the priorities are in the expenditure of the treasure, work, of the people of the USA. Fear or Hope?

If we are truly a government "Of the people, By the people and For the people..."

If it is still true that we are a government of the people, by the people and for the people, then it's time the people in Washington started living like "the people." Let's see who's in this to affect positive change and who's just in it for the money. For a start, if you get elected, you will make no more than the median income of your constituency. Period. You will pay for your own transportation and gas, like your constituency. You will pay for your own healthcare, like your constituency. You will pay into Social Security, like your constituency, inst

Peaceful Protest 8-1-2011 thru 8-5-2011 @ National Mall in D.C.

Contact me via email and will let know the details... It is a day of recognition of the men and women who served and are serving in the every day work of the nation. From the vets to the Homemakers of generations past and present. Will not be a show and dance just honest good people needed to make it known that Washington needs to keep spending but at a lower rate but Washington can do better work with the money that they collect when you the good working American pays his or her taxes.

p.s. Use the protest as subject if you will.

Bernie Sanders Could be the Next FDR

Tuesday night, I appeared on the Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell to talk about Elizabeth Warren, the rise of progressives within the Democratic Party, and what this means for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign.

At one point in our discussion, the conversation turned to whether Bernie represents the closest thing to an Elizabeth Warren candidacy.
