Comment on our worlds already means tested and proven solution to government abuse (Everybody) promises to be fun

This article states the problem, gives a 200 year proven world solution and with your consent goes the extra step and cleans up the whole mess. The problem; Libertarians are a small faction who have no understanding of the whole and the commons that belong to the whole as was taught in civics class.

GOP / TEA Party where are the jobs? You have been in control over 200 days

I thought Boehner and Cantor et al, were going to show the country how they were going to create jobs? Where are they? Even the new delight of the Tea Party created mainly government jobs during the recent down turn.


Terrorism In America......Organized Stalking.....Post # 2..............Letter to President Obama

Dear Mr. President,

Please stop ignoring the hundreds of thousands of victims of multiple stalkers.

Why does the Office For Victims of Crime offer assistance to victims of single stalkers, but not to victims of multiple stalkers/

De-criminalizing Marijuana Could Save Lives of Some--this Community Servant, for Example

Sad story this, Further, I wonder if the accused is actually believed by the police to be a suspect, or if he is simply a "target of convenience," a drifter sort with a record and no alibi. hmmmm.

Have Republicans Ruined the American Dream?

I believe the widening wealth inequality gap caused by Republicans, with Reaganomics being wildly embraced by the wealthy in the Republican Party, has put the American Dream on a fast path to ruination. Actually not only Americans but the industrialized nations of the EU face a much more bleak future. Atlantic Magazine saying "two thirds of all new income in America went to the top 1% of Americans between 2002 and 2007" tells us we are in trouble" since CIA Factbook also tells us "we are a more unequal nation than the Ivory Coast, Pakistan, Ethiopa and Kagakhstan!



Oil & Gas Industry doing society a great service by stimulating economy with violent weather?

A University of Maryland professor has stated that a violent weather related event would stimulate the economy by increasing demand for construction workers to help rebuild. This thinking meshes well with earlier comments by an editor of the Harvard Business Review that Climate Change and Global Warming represents a profit opportunity.

The Unwitting Fortune Tellers

Toward the end of my stay in Taiwan, I wanted to go out the front door of Tung-Hong with my camera, just to take pictures to record what it is like there. My wife said that might make the place too identifiable, although it looked about like most other places in Kaohsiung, so I did not. I realized at that point that perhaps it would be better for me to record mental pictures of Taiwan, although it's really hard to summarize. I could imagine going out the door and walking a short distance to the convenience store nearby, or the restaurant, or the fish market.

fair taxation is driving me insane...

The whole ponit of a progressive tax, inheritance tax and capital gains tax is to PREVENT THE MASSING OF WEALTH.

There is no fairness, it is pure necessity if a free market system is to work.......all arguments against it are pure bullshit.

Republicans Band from Labor Day Parade in Wausau, Wisconsin

The event is organized and paid for in large part by unions. It's their party and republicans aren't supposed to show up. It is assumed that the ban has been extended to Jeffrey Immelt of GE the White House's job czar.

A Musical Entry

I wrote this song about a year ago, but today I made an accompanying video in honor of the release of Dick Cheney's memoir. Enjoy!

How Stupid Has the Democratic Party Become?

Republicans haven’t taken over red states; Democrats have lost them by not running as real Democrats.

That’s my big takeaway from Alec MacGillis’ fascinating look into the biggest political mystery of our time: why poor white people in red states are not bothering to turn out to vote, leaving the field to Republicans elected by more affluent whites in those states.
