President’s Weekly address on $5 Billion in Homeowner’s assistance welcome but uninspired.

"The housing crisis has been the single biggest drag on our recovery from the recession. It has kept millions of families in debt and unable to spend, and it has left hundreds of thousands of construction workers out of a job," Obama said in his weekly radio and Internet address.

Syria kills another 217

Another 217 people have massacred by the Syrian government and no one anywhere even talks about it?

G.W.Bush said democracy would flourish throughout the Middle East and it truly is a shame Obama doesn't have it in him to defend the principles our nation is based upon and what all humanity strives for.

To The White House: Rather than the "Buffett Tax Plan", call it "Reagan Tax Plan" -- as a caller on Thom's show suggested.

A caller phoned Thom today and said Obama and the Democrats should "Luntzify" the "Buffett Tax Plan" and call it the "Reagan Tax Plan."

The caller noted that most Republicans are not interested in what a Democrat like Buffett would suggest, and advocated instead calling it the "Reagan Tax Plan." Reagan advocated virtually the same approach, the caller and Thom both noted. Thom said that investment should be taxed at least at the same rate of work, about 28%. And he played the Reagan quote about wanting the rich to pay at least the same in taxes as a bus driver.

Job Gains: An Unresponsive Government just allowing underlying economic growth to Window Dress?

Have all the job gains you want, but until you address wealth concentration AT THE TOP your economy will be operating at a fraction of what it could be WHEN it could be.

Railroads, WHY NOT !!!

Watching your show today Thom, when a nice lady called from, well, I dunno, but she called with a wonderfull suggestion of transportation.

Instead of the Canada XL Pipeline, put the money towards mass transit. It's time "we" had a magnetic bullet train. Let's get the people to the jobs!

Economics and Politics - a two sided coin

Being a liberal white male living in the heart of the deep south, I’ve had the opportunity to debate a LOT of people about a variety of subjects. The topic of race and tolerance comes up a lot. Social issues are always a hoot! Religion is a BIG one that usually comes into the discussion regardless of the real topic. And then there’s economics. I don’t claim to be an economist, nor do I claim to be an expert on much of anything, but I DO read a lot and I do think I understand the basics about what an economy is and how it works.

Transportation Bill

The energy industry is at it again, this time with the renewal of the Surface Transportation Bill. They energy companies lackeys in Congress have zeroed out all funding for anything that isn't oil related. This includes all funding for walking and biking facilities including repealing the wildly popular Safe Routes to School program. No Clean air money, no rails to trails, no traffic calming and now they even want to threaten public transit funding. All this non-clean energy transportation will be paid for by...wait for it...

Q. of E. & Jamie Lee

Q. of E. & Jamie Lee by leighmf on the subject of Royal digestion

To activate the Queen's new normal,
she queried Jamie Lee, informal,
"Dear, how much yogurt will atone
for sixty years upon the throne?"

"All those feasts of beef and suet,
sherry, cognac, by the cruet!"
Sixty years of dainties destined
to be cruditas, intestined.

Her Majesty requires a Fleet
of bioactive cups to eat.
Six a day should do the trick,
and please show Jamie Lee the pic.

Cory Booker's Vote Shows Why To Get Money Out Of Politics

On Friday House Republicans joined their Senate colleagues and approved a measure that will allow them to repeal Obamacare using a process known as budget reconciliation. Meanwhile, the pressure is growing on them to come up with some kind of replacement plan.

Unfortunately, they still don't have one.
