Once Upon A Time, Not So Long Ago, The USA Was A Republic

But Was Dismantled (one service at a time) And Became An Oligarchy

Is it just me? Today's GOP?

Using citizens United as the platform or the pot, stirred in ,one part Gingrich one part Santorum one part Romney. This equation or political stew, that is the GOP's plan for America. One hostile takeover artist, one lobbyist ,one self-anointed evangelist, all carnivores savagely devouring each other's integrity and their own futures at the same time. This is the Republican plan for the future, this is austerity,this is tax cuts and unrestrained debt.

Tibetans Peacefully Occupied a Private Park near Santa Cruz to Pray for Tibet Last Sunday. ( Pictures Attached )

http://www.flickr.com/photos/sacdeltadave/sets/72157629108169076 I went to the "Land of the Medicine Buddha" in Santa Cruz this past Sunday with a van load of my Tibetan friends who were gathering to observe Monlam, a prayer festival that begins on the fourth day of the Tibetan New Year. My Tibetan friend, Ven.Thupten Donyo who is about 5 ft 2 inches short, asked me to help hang the prayer flags, because I was tall. I was excited to help.

Looks like they caught Jamie Dimon and Timmy Geitner with their hands in the Cookie Jar, over 5 trillion theft.

Very interesting report from the White Hat Report, seems to be well documented and supported by testimony from Lord James of Blackheath of the British House of Lords. This could bring down whole agencies and institutions if it proves true and anyone has the guts to investigate.

economics of the right to work for females

The right to work laws are certainly outrageous and we need to get rid of them. In doing so we need to close the wage gap that STILL exsists for women. The current differential of 'right to work wage' coupled with the wage gap for women greatly adds up. Consequently women are hit with greater economic loss - in almost all areas of our economy. So discrimination of the female is just a further matter of economic benefit for our employers.

GUEST FROM AMERICANS FOR PROSPERITY

Thom,

You are rarely rude when having a conservative as a guest but on Feb. 27th you were borderline pugnacious when interviewing the represenative from Americans for Prosperity and discussing the privatization of Social Security.

I am not in favor of said privatization but your guest did not have an opportunity to riposte to your objections. You are guilty of what you sometimes castigate your callers of doing, namely fiiibustering.

Regards,

Greg Kramer

Santorum

This guy is finished............after saying he wanted to throwup over Kennedy's remark about separation of Church and State my thought was that he is finished.....this guy is over the top - he makes remarks then back tracks after he gets some criticism - the Repubs are all bait and switch - what they say is not what you get when they get voted in...ie., Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana and Michigan - beware of wolves in sheeps clothing..........

Buffett: Banks Victimized by Evicted Homeowners

I thought he wanted to join the 99%'ers. If so, why did he invest $11 billion in Wells Fargo and $5 billion in Bank of America? Enough of the B.S. He is playing Obama like a cheap violin.

Does it actually make sense these days to hope for progressive change?

As a longtime fan of liberal thought, it has become both a comfort and a codependency hoping for America to return to New Deal ethics. Hope only has value when it has at least a possibility of success, and the more I look at history, psychology and the world today, the less likely it seems.

Burned Korans

The books our soldiers burned had already been desicrated because prisoners wrote in them. That's why they were being destroyed. We employed the wrong method to destroy them.

Social Security

Thom,

If you want to raise the ceiling on Social Security "premiums" above the current limit, are you willing to have the government pay out an equally higher "benefit" to those higher payers when it comes time for them to retire?

Wage Hating Burger Czar As Labor Secretary?

In just a two hour span, Donald Trump has completely exposed his whole "I love the workers" routine as just another classic Trump scam.

It all began, where else, on Twitter, where on Wednesday night, Trump went after Chuck Jones, the local union president for the factory at the center of his Carrier deal.
