Our rights under Progessives are slowly wasting away

Their is a saying:

If you put a lobster in hot water it will jump out, but if you put it in cold water and slowly turn up the heat it will remain their until it dieds.

Well, in Joliet IL and all over the progessive government local and federal are installing red light cameras and police montor cameras

in locations to watch over us. Is that fair? or what. The Progessives claim the Republicans are doing it, but why are the Progessives doing it.

The filmmaker of "Barack Obama: People's President" now admits Obama is a fraud.

Barack's Betrayals Offer Lessons We Can't DenyYet, at the same time, many of us who now know how we have been used will vote for him again, because, as he rightly calculates, there is no one else, and the alternative is even worse.

Means tested proven solution to government abuse; Commenting on this solution promises to be fun

This article states the problem, gives a 200 year proven world solution and with your consent goes the extra step and cleans up the whole mess. The problem; Libertarians are a small faction who have no understanding of the whole and the commons that belong to the whole as was taught in civics class.

The beauty of corporate personhood

No, no, no. I'm not being paid to write this. But, for arguments' sake:

Corporate personhood is an extension of the rights of man. We should rejoice in the extension of human rights because, for one, rights come with responsibilities.

Romney famously pointed out that corporations are people because people individually accrue benefits from incorporating together.

God, using it the Right way?

Obama: Thom Blows It Again

Today (hour 1 8-30-11) Thom was talking to, I think, John Podesta and I caught him saying..."we need to get Obama reelected"...

That is so wrong on so many levels. "We", if you include most real Progressives, will NOT be working to get this corporatist sellout reelected. In fact, it's imperative that he be defeated.

The Only Time Our POTUS Matters

It seems obvious to me that Obama understands the problems our country has simply by listening to the speeches he made when running for office. For those of you who kept his remarks for the record, I urge you to go back and re-listen or re-read them.

The need for government in this "Animal Farm".

I used to raise hogs to produce Feeder Pigs. In other words, I ran a Piggy Factory. I turned out about 500 little pigs a year out of about 20 or so Sows. Anyhow, to keep your sows in proper shape for making babies, they must be fed a restricted ration, which is about 7 pounds of feed per day. So, doing the math, I would dump 7 X 21 = 147 pounds of feed per day into a large feeder. However, after doing this for about a month, I noticed that I had two large hogs and 19 famished hogs. It seems that the two smarter and stronger ones had commandeered the feede

Convert your vehicle to E-85 Alcohol for under $300.00

I converted my 2003 Chevy Cobalt to run on E-85 alcohol with a converter or add on computer for under $300.00! for anyone that wants to do it just go to: - which is a non-profit source for converting your late model or new vehicle to use E-85. E85 is cheaper, cleaner, and supports American jobs in that it keeps us from using less foreign oil. Brazil, Sweden, and other countries currently mandate all vehicles to use E-85 as a method to get off of foreign oil - we should all do the same.
