What can the progress thinking american people do

I am sick and tired of the lack of the truth, regarding the blatant and deliberate attack on the american middle-class by the idiotic republican congress and the corporate traitors, like the Koch brothers.. Republican don't represent anyone except the so called job creators ,well where the hell are the jobs. I can't believe that the press would fall right in line with the radical right wing tea party rejects. Believing anything that Murdock run Fox News Corp.propagandize the news, they are the biggest liars. Thank goodness for programs li

Where should we run? And, should we?

Thom,

First, thank you for the work you do.

Second, in consideration of the tanking of the dollar, and future outlook for us who have a little cash saved for retirement, where should we put our money? Mutual fund "investment experts" would like us to "stay in for the long haul", and hope "things will recover as they always have". This may be true, but in what time frame?

Slouching Toward Extinction Now, Waking Up Wise Tomorrow

"...The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity...

...And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?" —William Butler Yeats (1865-1939), THE SECOND COMING

Why the U.S.A. is Doomed.

And its decline is breathtaking, astonishing. Here's one answer to "Why's that?" Need to cut the budget? Slash funding for education. Educators decry the drastic cuts? Then why in god’s name aren’t those educators politically active? People who sit on their asses while the nation careens to ruin deserve a President Bachmann.

Verizon Strike

I'm one of over 45,000 CWA and IBEW on strike against Verizon. This corporation has looked around at what's going on in Ohio, Wisconsin amd other anti-labor situations and want in on the action. The problem is Verizon isn't hurting, in fact over the past 4 1/2 years they've made over $22.5 billion, paid their top 5 executives over $258 million during the same period, paid no taxes last year and still managed to get a $1.3 billion tax refund.

Geithner to stay on: Obama doesn’t want appointment of Wall Street Banker to Treasury to influence Voters in 2012 election.

Will Jamie Dimon of JP Morgan Chase be the next head of Treasury?

For the Government to worry about the Bond Market is for them to discount the option of raising taxes on the Super Rich.

Wisconsin : Take a step towards putting Scott Walker and his Trojan Horse out to pasture

On Tuesday August 9th, Wisconsin can take a step towards putting Scott Walker and his Trojan Horse out to pasture. This Trojan Horse was filled with the Koch brothers and members of ALEC who have been exposed. The voters have the chance to start taking back control of Wisconsin from the corporate self-serving interests that own Scott Walker and his pals. Show the rest of the country that the phrase "We the people" and "We the corporations" are not one and the same.

mass demonstrations

It looks like the Israeli people, too, have learned tactics from the "Arab Spring", with their mass demonstrations against the high costs of living and the economic imbalance between rich and poor. This movement also has started from the ground up, triggered in large part by young people in various parts of the coountry. Shouldn't we be next? I took part in the anti-Vietnam War demonstrations and am ready to go in the next ones.
