What "Lefties" miss about finances...corporate and private

The average "Lefty" is so over-reactionary that they really fail to dig into issues beyond the flashy headlines, Here are four examples:

1. Its NOT corporate funds that corporations use to influence politicians, its OUR funds that we circulate through their financial networks. Simly put, the LEFT? has failed to talk about this issue and buy into the "Luntz-Speak" noting that its only corporate funds when in actuality, it our very own money being used against us.

PERFECT top marginal tax rate?

If Kennedy's 20% drop from Eisenhower's grossly unfair rate provided positive economic results, then George W's (& Obama's) current rate must have created an economy that is twice as good as Kennedy's. Right? As Thom always says, "roll back the Reagan tax cuts". Decades of data clearly point to Reagan's rates being "unfair" to the middle class, but perhaps the Kennedy rate is also "unfair" to the rich. Why can't the Democrats place the tax narrative between Kennedy and Reagan instead of between Bush-Obama and 15% flat tax.

My brush with Wisconsin

Living my life, so enthralled with my own needs and struggles. And then reality struck like lightning, I ordered a product on eBay. And about three or four days later it arrives. I open the merchandise, I find a wonderful well-crafted product.Times are tough financially, I was happy to win the auction without overspending. As I examined and admired this fine piece of craftsmanship, I look back in the box to make sure I had not missed anything and there it was a copy of the Wednesday, December 22, 2010 Green Bay press Gazette.

Scott Walker

What are some of the objectives of an insurgency? Never reveal the truth. Always stay on message. Overcome the status quo. By blowing it up. Scott Walker is the bomb of an American insurgency. Through the last 30 years, we have undergone a series of transformations that led us to this, the takeover by big business, or should I say big government, truth be known government entwined with business is big government defined. Scott Walker takes office countless jobs leave taking the lifeblood with them. Taking the hope of the average working family with them.

It's Not My Party, but I Cried Anyway

Last nights presentation of the 83rd Academy Awards was very sad, don't you agree? I even dressed up for them, well I bathed and put on clean underwear at least. I know, I know, we the audience are pressing our collective noses against the window from the outside looking in, but…it's everyone's air. The Academy Awards show is kinda like candy, but like candy it can give you an upset stomach. Such was last night's ceremony. It needed something to bring it down to earth. I thought that Hathaway and Franco would make for an interesting evening. It didn't work.

In God We Trust

Here is a timeline of how the economy got to where it is today. It was all based on a flawed assumption by the Federal Reserve regarding the possible affects from Y2K on the banking system computers.

Joe Must Go

I am sick of the passive aggressive style of Joe Scarborough and the damage he and his faux journalist friends are doing to the cause of political journalism. We already have a Fox outlet for distorting news and bullying guests and the opposition. Why should we have to put up with this fake celebrity, who pretends to be the wise man in the room right in the middle of one of our only Liberal sanctuaries in the media. Like O'Reilly, but with the pretense of charm and a non-threatening manner, he hides the same insane re-writes of history to defend a Republican system t

The other way we're subsidizing Walmart...

Most of us know how taxpayers subsidize Walmart's low wages with billions of dollars in Medicaid, food stamps, and other financial assistance for workers. But, did you know that we're also subsidizing the retail giant by paying the cost of their environmental destruction.
