Politics of Gasoline Prices

There is a Magic Bullet but it entails beating up on Wall Street whose speculators are driving up prices in the commodities market. Obama wants to be re-elected and he needs Wall Street's campaign contributions.

Stupidity or Ignorance?

Yesterday CBS reported that a recent poll gave Congress a 17 percent approval rating. What do you think the result would have been if respondents had been asked to rate their own Representative or Senator? I betcha it would have been well above 50 percent approval. Voters more often than not send back the same old - often very old - crooks. Term limits, term limits, term limits...

We're Sick

Do you know the rationale for why the Social Security contribution is capped at about $107,000? This is ridiculous!

Obama commits Lie of Omission

Today’s recent news about gasoline prices has Obama claiming that there is no “Magic Bullet” to bring them down. Yet, 60% of the price of a gallon of gas at the pump is due to LEGAL speculation by Wall Street.

Fed Passed Out Trillions under Both OBAMA and BUSH

To confirm, per Senator Bernie Sanders on April 22, 2011, approximately 2:30 pm, on the the Thom Hartmann radio show, the Federal Reserve Administration appointed by President Barac Obama passed out some of the trillions given to Wall Street and Rich Americans.

In response to Senator Sanders statement Thom Hartmann immediatedly sought to defend the Administration. Thom Hartmann's conduct in this regard is damaging to our democracy.

Words Do Matter

Progressive TV and radio hosts notice and mention the control Conservatives have on sound bites, and how listeners believe their lies and misrepresentations. I hear few try to turn the Conservative spin around. A gentleman on Thom's show today, 4/22, was sputtering he was so frustrated with Republican spin. Being a senior with a senior moment, I have forgotten his particular point already, but he was correct.

Hi Thom,

Pittsburgh in the 60′s: Plans and schemes and stuff

by Sherry Pasquarello | WWH - I’ve been trying to settle on one topic for this week but everything seems to be interconnected in some fashion. It’s like a big old knitted sweater that’s itchy and smells of something faintly nasty but you aren’t sure exactly what the smell is.

Wake ‘N’ Bake 101: Snacks

The Blind Eye

Thom has touted Israel as the only democracy in the Middle East. Here’s a more reasoned view, shared by many “on the ground” including several Israeli intellectuals:

Is Walker in bed with BouMatic?

The jackass Governor of Wisconsin's latest announcement of a tax credit to dairy farmers to offset their upgrading their milking parlor machinery may be a political payback to the billionaire owner of BouMatic (a manufacturer of milking machine equipment).

Obama’s indifference to high Gas Prices

Obama’s announcement that he would have the Justice Department look into illegal price fixing, gouging, etc. that may be contributing to high gas prices is nonsense and he knows it. Up to 60% of the price of gasoline at the pump is due LEGAL speculation by Wall Street in the commodities market.

“New” Energy Technology

To hell with Fracking, Tar Sands, Oil Shale, Coal, Gasification, Sequestration, and Nuclear Energy. And especially to hell with deep water drilling.

Book review: "Creative Evolution", Henri Bergson

This work was done without the knowledge of modern genetics, yet conforms admirably to the implications of science inasmuch as science is based upon materialist assumptions. Bergson avoids materialism as deftly as he evades Idealism, developing an analysis of the nature of life which recognizes the logical basis of philosophy by demonstrating the implications of following through with empiricist assumptions.

57 Percent of Republicans Want to Undo the American Revolution

America is a Christian nation. That’s an idea former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee has harped on time and time again during his political career.

And while he didn’t explicitly talk about it today during his presidential announcement, it’s bound to pop up some time during his campaign.
