Economics and Politics - a two sided coin

Being a liberal white male living in the heart of the deep south, I’ve had the opportunity to debate a LOT of people about a variety of subjects. The topic of race and tolerance comes up a lot. Social issues are always a hoot! Religion is a BIG one that usually comes into the discussion regardless of the real topic. And then there’s economics. I don’t claim to be an economist, nor do I claim to be an expert on much of anything, but I DO read a lot and I do think I understand the basics about what an economy is and how it works.

Transportation Bill

The energy industry is at it again, this time with the renewal of the Surface Transportation Bill. They energy companies lackeys in Congress have zeroed out all funding for anything that isn't oil related. This includes all funding for walking and biking facilities including repealing the wildly popular Safe Routes to School program. No Clean air money, no rails to trails, no traffic calming and now they even want to threaten public transit funding. All this non-clean energy transportation will be paid for by...wait for it...

Q. of E. & Jamie Lee

Q. of E. & Jamie Lee by leighmf on the subject of Royal digestion

To activate the Queen's new normal,
she queried Jamie Lee, informal,
"Dear, how much yogurt will atone
for sixty years upon the throne?"

"All those feasts of beef and suet,
sherry, cognac, by the cruet!"
Sixty years of dainties destined
to be cruditas, intestined.

Her Majesty requires a Fleet
of bioactive cups to eat.
Six a day should do the trick,
and please show Jamie Lee the pic.

A war of ideas fought in a cloud of opinions

It's very depressing to see the level of discourse in America today.

Remember, you are not the Illuminated ones, and you don't really know a single true thing.

Your opinions are figments of someone else's imagination.

Your belief systems are figments of someone else's imagination.

All of it is designed to keep you as slaves.

Your Pharaoh is God King. A few of his coins is all you'll ever get.

Submit, and take your rightful place in the world.

WARNING It’s Starting: United Nations warns of Enormous Food Crisis rapidly approaching with 9 Billion People by 2040.

This week the United Nations released a report stating that the expected strain on food and fuel supply from global population growth -- predicted to reach 9 billion people by 2040 -- hasn't been adequately addressed.

Republicans refuse to let Keystone Pipeline die – sneaking approval language$$$ into EVERYTHING!

If approved, how can something conceived of stealth, beguile, purposeful omission of material facts, etc be considered a genuine law?!

Allen West Tea Party Hitler

Allen West tells liberals and President Obama to, “get the hell out of the United States of America.”

When I heard and saw this on the Martin Bashir show… Let me tell you, even in these times of pure hateful INSANITY, I was taken aback. Now the sorry-ass Tea Party legislators have gone too far.

Planned Parenthood

I am disscusted with the way Planned Parenthood has been treated.

I am astonished that in this day and age, that we are still arguing over Roe vs Wade and the de-funding of Planned Parenthood. Claiming that Planned Parenthood does a majority of abortions. Well this just isn't true!!

Planned Parenthood is consistantly being singled out by the Republican Party, and the The Right To Life Organizations.

Groundhog Day

It's Groundhog Day. The day when we try to figure out who's right about when the seasons start.

Trump Could Learn From the "Rat Park" Experiment

Even as Donald Trump's surrogates are re-tweeting photoshopped images of Hillary Clinton in blackface, Trump himself is trying to win the black vote by simply asking black Americans "What the hell do you have to lose?!"

And in response to the news that NBA star Dwyane Wade's cousin had been shot in Chicago, he sent out two tweets talking about how bad the crime rate is getting.
