Four years ago, Charlie Gibson who moderated the Democratic debate at St. Anselm college took Obama to task for daring to propose raising taxes on couples taking home more that $250,000 a year. "But it will affect you family members here working for this college," Gibson stated, "a husband and a wife professor." And the crowd there at the college jeered him, because probably no couple teaching at St. Anselm ever comes close to that without extraordinary outside circumstances.
Must be those thieving Tea Party members at work again.
There is a big difference, in my opinion, between a family taking on a 30 year home mortgage and an investor flipping and refinancing as many houses a possible. I argue that the ability (freedom) to endanger the commons isn't the same as the right to undertake equitable enterprise (regulated commerce), and that promoting opportunity is not the same as leveraging then flipping corporations. Piratical financing doesn't make Mr. Romney an ordinary "businessman" because cheatin' aint "success".
(no wonder they don't like Julliane Assange!)

There is no such thing as an illegal alien. Undocumented Immigrants are Human People too. Most have enough Native American blood to earn the title of half breed. As such, they have even more of a right to be within these borders as you Lilly White Bigots who claim the United States of America as your own sovereign racist territory. Remember, your ancestors gained your claim to this land by trespassing, squatting, lying, cheating, stealing and bullying and war-mongering the red man human people into submission.
I feel compelled to monitor the behind-the-scenes occurences in the lives of Christian right-wing politicians to check for hypocrisy and lies.
We all saw what happened when President Obama issued a policy statement on SOPA/PIPA. That statement resulted from a petition on the We, the People feature on the White House website. There is currently a petition on that site that calls for the end to corporate personhood and repealing citizen's united. There are over 20,000 signatures on that petition. Once there are 25,000 signatures, the President will state his position on the issue. One must create an account on the site, and then use the link below to sign the petition. Let's end corporate personho
Unbelieveable! He hit all the key accomplishments and what we need to do for 2012.
