  • Good News! UAW cost the taxpayer even MORE than expected.

    Previously you were expected to lose $14.33 billion on paying off Obama's union clients, but that's now been upped to $23.6 billion.

  • Just a thought about "The Pledge"

    discgolfer_sp's picture

    In my opinion "The Taxpayer Protection Pledge" has gone too far. I now look at it as "TREASON" because the actions of the republicans that signed the pledge are not protecting the 99.5% of taxpayers from irresponsible favouritism to the super rich.



  • Tomatoes Are Ovaries

    leighmf's picture

    It's just impossible for a botanist to keep silent on whether pizza is a vegetable when a certain amount of tomato sauce counts as the vegetable ingredient.


    Tomato, squash, eggplant, avocado, and cucumber are all fruits which are mistakenly called vegetables.

    The botanical definition of a fruit is, "a fruit is a ripened ovary," and a "a seed is a ripened ovule."

    If you think about fruit, you will note that fruits have seeds inside. If you plant the seed from inside a fruit, it might grow into a bush, a tree, or a shrub.


  • “For 75 years the Poor having been voting for Democrats and you know what?! they are STILL POOR!”, Jesse Ventura.

    The Country desperately needs a 3rd Party.

    Don't let Hartman, Schultz and Miller force you into to thinking the solution lies within the existing system of Democrats vs. Republicans.  That is why the country is in the mess it is in.


  • Lunch with Bernie Sanders

    Call it what it really is, dangling a glittery ball in the eyes of Left leaning Americans.  All Bernie is doing is talk if we don't get OUR Government to listen something needs to be done!

    If we can't get action details it's all talk to waste our time and that's frustrating. 

    All I hear is that it's difficult to do anything to make the changes we need.

    We don't need to hear that our questions or points are good ones. 

    Writing to our money bribed congress people and Senate people does nothing!

     We need a course of action!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Where was all the "support" for the Tea Party

    Where was all the "support" for the Tea Party when they were speaking up at the town hall meetings or marching in washington D.C.?  Looking back a couple of years in the blogs I cannot find any support for the rights of the Tea Party to protest.  I also do not recall any store front windows broken, property damage, police being slashed with razors or feces and urine thrown on them ,rapes, drug use, sucides, shootings, or police actions to evict Tea party members from private property. Not even bulldoziers to clean up the mess after a demonstration. Quite odd.

  • Inspection- Supreme Fascists

       There's no way around it. You know the plan. It's been obvious over a decade. Obvious since corporations and the military tried to unseat Roosevelt, violently: if necessary. I wrote about the possibility in an edition of this column ten years ago. With the Supremes deciding an election, corporate person-hood pulled out of the posterior of a clerk's misguided footnote, to the health care debate... the intent, and the drive, towards fascism has been steady, demanding

  • Occupy Wallstreet Demands -- some recommendations

    I think that OWS needs a hard set of grievances to focus their message. Here a few that I think should be considered:

  • Sirota's "Rush" to Judgement

    How will I know David Sirota if I should see him?  By the "Rush Mustash" of the poison "Kool-Aid" variety on his upper lip.  Chelsea Clinton was NOT hired as a "Top Correspondent".  She was hired as a "Special Correspondent" to report on groups and individuals "making a difference by doing good", according to an NBC release.  Brian Williams, NBC News Anchor, said "We are so excited she's joining us to tell the stories of ordinary people doing extraordinary things."  This is NOT a "TOP Correspondent"!!!  A truly serious journalist would be insulted to be of

  • Working To End Citizens United

    Congressman Jim McGovern introduced a bill this week to overturn the Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling.  Working toward a constitutional amendment has been the work of John Bonifanz and Free Speech for people since the day the ruling came down.  To learn more about this great organization, read the blog/interview I did with John earlier this summer.  I've reposted it below.
