Budget so-called Compromise DID raise taxes

Whether or not the recent so-called compromise on the federal budget raised any taxes is a matter of framing. As I see it, taxes on neither corporations nor the filthy rich were raised. They remain disgustingly lower than ever. On the other hand, the cuts to social welfare programs such as food stamps, WIC, and Medicaid take from recipients of these programs who otherwise would have received benefits, just as a tax takes money from citizens.

Alan Colmes defends money in campaigns – Not Good

Good God ! I frigg'n give up here!

If a caller wants to condemn accepting campaign donations and all the money in our political system - AGREE WITH HIM! EMPATHISE WITH HIM!

There are jobs out there, people are just too lazy to take them.

The Georgia Agribusiness Council says nearly half of the farmers it surveyed don’t have enough workers to harvest their crops.

About 130 fruit and vegetable growers, cotton and peanut processors and other agricultural employers responded to a survey on labor needs.

Treasonous display of “no confidence” in Domestic Economy?

The establishment continues to maintain that at some point in the future it could come to pass that we might not be able to make our payments on the Countries debt without cutting into essential social programs so best to make cuts now. And now it looks like we are signing deals to the effect into the Nation’s malleable body of laws.

Fewer cops, more potholes: How debt deal could hit states hardest: Patrick Wall-Christian Science Monitor Aug 2, 2011

The debt-and-deficit bill signed into law on Tuesday forestalled a dangerous federal government default. But it will also slash aid to states already reeling from the recession, almost certainly forcing them to curtail services and raise revenues to pay for programs once bankrolled by Congress.

PATCO...a few tidbits from a PATCO ATC

Just read McCartin's writing in the NYT [8/3/2011edition] editorial about the PATCO strike in 1981...I was there as an active strike participant and a few facts were deleted, incorrect or overlooked...all in defense of Ronald Reagan...just as the coprorate media is STILL trending to accomplish-part of the coordinated project designed to "positively revise" Reagan's rather nasty history I'd guess.

"Circular Firing Squad"--MWUHH??

I am just astounded at your continuous support for Obama, in light of the non-stop daily evidence of his fealty and service to the enemies of the country. A good example of this trend is your mantra of "circular firing squad": Somehow we mustn't "primary" Obama, or even speak against him, because doing so just attacks "one of our own".

Republicans Did NOT block Obama entirely from delivering additional Economic Stimulus

All Obama had to do is stipulate that the Trillions$$$ in secret Federal Reserve loans (at 0% or near 0% interest rates) passed out to the Financial Industry UNDER HIS ADMINISTRATION by his appointee Helicopter Ben Bernanke could ONLY go to Local Governments, and/
