It blows my mind that people don’t find this reprehensible.
The sanctions will boost circular profit making. For instance, $5.00 gallon at the pump will bring more justify pursing more dangerous, damaging, and expensive oil and gas production.

My fellow progressives,
It is so important for us to support any progressive media out there. I hope each and everyone of you will tune into my show tonight as I interview Harlow Unger, author of the book "Lion of Liberty Patrick Henry And The Call to a New Nation."

It is a three prong approach which is intended to gain bi partisan support, lower the corporate tax rate, create homeland job growth and encourage a balance of trade. I will not attempt to recommend specifics but will
Unfortunately, I fear, no fundamental option contrary to "austerity" has been consistently announced by the political left and no stubborn consolidation of the left has been determined to rectify the treachery of 'blue dogs' in the Senate (who blocked Democratic legislation), and despair and discontent has prevailed. I do not think that a "third way" is necessary when the second variety (liberal) has not been resolutely pursued.
Something to ponder on this first day of a New Year.
