How Libertarian Economic Principles Poison Society

The other day, on his TV show, Thom debated a conservative strategist named Anthony Holm. Mr. Holm has worked for the likes of Dick Cheney, Rick Perry and other high profile conservatives and so his point of view is not without consequence (I would say dire consequences). I know that Thom does not like to talk about his guests when they are not present to defend themselves but, as I'm not Thom, I don't mind saying that I was annoyed by the smug, self-righteous and condescending attitude this man took as he defended the libertarian economic model. It really rubbed me the wrong way.


Whether Buffett said it or not this is what should be done! But does Congress have to vote on it??

Antiquus Ordo Seclorum

This blog is to announce the end of the New World Order: Novus Ordo Seclorum. Some are here and now calling it: Antiquus Ordo Seclorum, or Old World Order. Which ever of the two, 'IT' is over. The time is here and now. Those that have not confronted their duality will have a difficult time in the comming weeks. Expect the unexpected, it has been said. :

Time to Prosecute White House Administrations.

Ode To Jim Eason

Having started listening to Talk Radio in 1968, when KNEW and the grandaddy of the format, KGO, AM 810, were broadcasting in the San Francisco Bay Area and across California, one of the first communicasters I listened to was Jim Eason. His broadcasts were a mixed bag, of conservative concerns and anti-war activism. He interviewed S. I. Hayakawa after the man was appointed president of U.C. Berkeley, and had frequent on air discussions with him.

A fool's errand

In reply to Tom and the republican economist's, what can we do to create jobs? If we invest in our startups and they create jobs, why do they move to other states or out of the country after we create them?

Is patriotism dead in America?

This is a question I've been asking myself lately and maybe one all of us should be asking.

Abortionist pleads guilty to Murder.

How’s this for a Halloween horror: Adrienne Moton and Sherry West, who worked at a Philadelphia abortion clinic run by late-term specialist Kermit Gosnell, have pleaded guilty to murder as a result of participating in a slide down Row v.

What Makes People Vote Against Their Own Best Interests?

This is an excellent read. Most of us liberals have been perplexed as to why any working class stiff (especially those in the lower income brackets) would vote against his/her own best interest and vote for corporate and wealthy interests instead. I am so glad to read that there are those in the field of psychology who are also perplexed enough to research this phenomenon and try making sense as to the WHY people willingly hurt themselves and their families in this political conundrum?

Hillary’s Keystone approval ignores critical aspect of the Commons, as well as destruction to take place in a foreign country.

It's economics as usual out of the white house. Give away the People’s rights in the Commons and take advantage of any destruction you can facilitate in other countries (the environmental destruction in Canada related to the Pipeline will be fantastic) for the good of the 1% and their oligarchs.

Colored People

Colored People, as portrayed by Julia Cameron Damon, is another feature currently on display at Summit City Noise, in keeping with Dean Robinson's fascination with persons of color, including his brother Vince, who couldn't be more his opposite. The relationship between Dean and his brother is so like that of my sister and me, except that they are more of a roasted coffee shade, Vince being the darker one, and I am a freckle-faced cracker while my sister has more olive tones.


Butch Black: The M.E.A.N. Man

My friend Dean Robinson in Fort Wayne is one of the most humor-laden one-man indy media dynamos in the Mid-west. Creator of Burt Skye, who blasts the Fort Wayne financial district with an automatic weapon, his new film (for mature audiences)
