Job Creators

A possible solution for allowing or not allowing the tax breaks to expire on the "job creators". Tell them to create jobs within 6 months or the tax breaks expire retroactive to January 1, 2011. Problem solved!


DK's Exposing ALEC & Protest ALEC efforts pay off big time this week!"I have to put that into proper context so everyone understands how important it is to

An alternative to the TEA PARTY

i really think the country needs a viable alternative to the TEA PARTY! What don't we start our own movement- for the REST of us...left AND center ? It could be THE SILENT MAJORITY..which is very accurate,and ironic if you remember the original adoption of the phrase by the right in the seventies. I would try to start it but am not technological enough to figure out how to properly put up a site or blog,then make it viral.I would love to team up with someone who could do that.I have been an activist and organizer since 68,so i can contribute creatively...and passionately !

Goodbye, Grant Park. I'm Done.

I ran the gamut of emotions yesterday, from disgusted to really, really disgusted. Over the past several weeks, I have been calling and writing my congressional deligation, regarding the deficit, and the false allegation that cutting Social Security and Medicare will do anything to defray it. And I have written the White House repeatedly. I kept hoping it might matter. But I have finally exhausted any capacity to care.

Let's ask for a REFUND!

Alan Grayson is asking for ideas to try to pick up Two Trillion, but that is Chump Change. In Senator Bernie Sanders newsletter yesterday (Bernie Buzz, July 21, 2011), Bernie point out that, and I quote:

"The first top-to-bottom audit of the Federal Reserve uncovered eye-popping new details about how the U.S. provided a whopping $16 trillion in secret loans to bail out American and foreign banks and businesses during the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression".

Congresspersons Violate Oath of Office with "Extinction Rider"

In true keeping with the intent not to let any crisis go to waste the House Interior Appropriations Bill saw fit to include extremist language -- known as the Extinction Rider -- that would allow wolverines, walruses and hundreds of other animals and plants to spiral toward extinction.

Why I ♥ Rachel Maddow & why the GOP/TP hate her so.

When I watch The Rachel Maddow Show, I cannot believe how much (methodical and accurate) information I receive in just one short hour. Her news team must work diligently day and night to come up (in depth) with so many informative news items.

Part of the Problem with changing US Trade Policy

It will invariably put upward pressure on wages which would deconcentrate wealth.

Economic Psychology associated with Cuts to Social Security, Medicare/caid, and other safety nets.

The more you undermine people’s sense of economic security during old age or tough times the more they will save. To save is to postpone current (discretionary and other) spending in anticipation of needing this cash at some future point in time in order to meet that period’s necessary expenses. CONSUMERS WILL CUT CURRENT CONSUMPTION IN FAVOR OF BEIN

Bad News Fridays!

Many people used to look forward to Fridays. "Thank God it's Friday", "got through that one", "time to kick back and relax". However, Fridays have not been living up to their reputation for some time now.

Researcers discover sex-change gene.

Researchers at the University of Minnesota Medical School and College of Biological Sciences have discovered a gene that is required to maintain male sex throughout life.

The research team, led by David Zarkower and Vivian Bardwell of the University of Minnesota’s department of genetics, cell biology, and development, found that removing an important male development gene, called Dmrt1, causes male cells in mouse testes to become female cells. The findings were published today in the online edition of Nature.


This matra is still being preached to a flock of involved believers.The truth as I see it is these people still believe they will become a part of this "rich group".Nothing wrong with that belief.This "rich group" actually constructs impediments(laws,procedures,taxes) which prevent entry.If lower taxes creates jobs,our economy should be "burnin' up":70%(80's) to 20%(now).50% lower has created the current situation.The believers got some "splainin'" to do.

What’s the Difference Between Cancer and Donald Trump?

So-called “free market" or "unregulated capitalism” is really nothing more than the cancer-stage of capitalism. And that uninhibited cancerous growth has spread, so that now even our political system is infected with the cancer of corporatism.

Donald Trump’s candidacy is an example of how our political system is being eaten alive by the cancer-stage of capitalism.
