Word wars: replace "privatize" with "profitize"

Although it may not be a word, using "profitize" instead of "privatize" nails the true intentions of the GOP in just three syllables. ALL PROGRESSIVE TALK SHOW HOSTS NEED TO POPULARIZE THIS TERM. The Lenz/Rove corporatist spin machine has cost our country so much merely by choosing precise words for followers to parrot. Now it's our turn. But our attack will be different, because rather than deflect, refute, or ignore the truth, our words will be carefully chosen to accurately reflect the truth.

The REAL Middle Class??!!

Sorry that I'm somewhat behind the live show, but I'm now listening to the podcast from Wednesday, 2/9, and the anti-union screed from that woman in NJ in the first hour simply horrified me. I think that the most idiotic, hate-filled thing that she said during her rant was when she called herself a member of the "REAL" Middle Class.

Obama All Smoochie-Smoochie with Big Agriculture - Commons Suffers, Wealth Consolidates

It is deeply disappointing that President Obama and his administration have chosen to support Monsanto's profits and consolidation of the agricultural sector over the livelihoods of farmers and health of consumers.

The State of Our Democracy

“The insurmountable hurdle for so-called populist movements is having the nerve to attack the rich instead of the poor. Even after rich almost destroyed the entire global economy through their sheer unrestrained greed and stupidity, we can’t shake the peasant mentality that says we should go easy on them, because the best hope for our collective prosperity is in them creating wealth for us all.

Okay America. Now it's YOUR turn!!

The Tunisians are doing it. The Egyptians are doing it. When are we gonna do it!

A Disturbance in the Force

WWH | by Tricia - There’s been a disturbance in the force at Menopausal Stoners World Headquarters. A couple of weeks ago, I refused to give money to the Democrats for the first time in my life. It all started with a simple phone call.

Can You Hear Me Now?

Yes he's leaving! No, wait…he's just transferring power to the Vice-President and staying until September. What a ride today has been. At this writing it is about 7.30 a.m. in Cairo at the beginning of what is going to be a sunny warmish Friday. Watching the news today we got stronger and stronger messages from the White House beginning with euphoria that Mubarak would probably leave but then as the day wore on, pessimism as Mubarak took to the air waves to say he was staying using unclear language as to how "change" would happen.
