Quote from Martin Niemoller 1892-1984

I have had this quote on my refrigerator since the passage of the "first" Patriot Act.

First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out-because I was not a Jew. Then they came for the communists

and I did not speak out-because I was not a communist. Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out- because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for me-and by then there was no one left to speak out for me.

Will Iceland, Greece, Ireland, Portugal and others Prosecute American Wall Street Banksters who set their Economies up for Failure?

Why don't Iceland, Greece, Ireland, Portugal etc Prosecute American Wall Street Banksters who set their Economies up for Failure. If someone walked into a Las Vegas Casino with a bundle of counterfeit bank notes, they would be arrested and sent straight to the slammer. If a card dealer was gullible enough to accept the fake notes, he would loose his job, but not go to jail unless he was collaborating with the swindler. What Wall Street Banksters did to swindle the economies of the world is no different.

"Grotesque & Rude,Rush Limbaugh opens his mouth Again!" ( the new ) "What Now Cartoon"

I'm glad that Obama called Miss Fluke with his support, now if he would call the FCC and tell them to do their job! Enough is enough, Limbaugh has gone way too far, once again! The FCC has reprimanded others for doing far less! In the meantime the rest of us can put his advertisers on notice with boycotts.

Occupy Wallstreet and the other elephant in the room

I have been thinking about the Patriot Act, version one and two. Seems to me that for the preservation of our Constitutional Rights, Occupy Wallstreet movement might reconsider their primary goal of calling attention to and attempting to see change in the distribution of wealth in this country. Instead, I believe that our civil rights are in grave danger and what amounts to a coup d'etat is happening right now. Our govenment can now take any citizen into custody, hold him without representation, send him or her to Gitmo, and even murder us if the government decid

Houston, We Have A Conspiracy.....

When I heard the news that Andrew Breitbart had died, my first thought was, 'bring in the conspiracy clowns'. So I was not surprised when, on Saturday I heard, what was for me, the first conspiracy theory. On a large, nationwide AM show I heard none other that Alex Jones revealing the news that Breitbart had been targeted by the Obama administration because of the supposed 'March Surprise' video he was going to release on March 1st. allegedly showing the president at a communist rally. Now, Alex and show host John B.

Come, ye rich! It's 2012 and Disney World is 40.

The Unabashed Ignorance of Rush Limbaugh

I can’t stand the big WINDBAG Rush Limbaugh but his sycophants are even more pitiable than he is because they BELIEVE what he spouts and do not realize he is just doing it for the $$$$,which he takes to the bank, laughing at the stupid numbskulls all the way...

oil prices?

Mortgage “Settlement”, BP Legal Farce, etc. what makes you think Obama will overturn Citizens United?

And even if Citizens United is overturned by blue dog’s appointments to the supreme court the evidence just isn’t there that President Judas would finally take definitive action to purge his filthy brand of wealth concentrating campaign finance from American Society.

Why Running Out of Oil Would be a Blessing:

Not just to not be dependent on oil, or to stop feeding money into companies that Screw us and the environment, but to really start integrating the technology that is already out there would be the blessing.

Why Chelsea Manning Is Going Free


In his eight years in office President Obama has waged a devastating war on whistleblowers, prosecuting more people under the Espionage Act than every single president - combined.

But that war on whistleblowers took a possible step towards armistice today when the President commuted the prison sentence of former US Army private Chelsea Manning.
