Bob Mcdonnell is a joke!

Just saw Gov. Bob mcdonnell on Morning Joe, he says the tax situation is not an issue of being fair, it's an economic responsibility issue. Is he serious, just outrageous!

Nature and Bolivia


You are better then the Less Government guy. I cannot believe people can think human beings are seperate from nature and need to be protected and segregated from nature... That mentality seems so unnatural. Bolivia is breaking new ground and shift the global paradigm concerning our surroundings.

Deibolt - Ohio gifts

You may not have heard that last summer, Deibolt was fined $25,000,000 by the SEC for accounting fraud. It was not anywhere that I could find in the local news - however, ACFE newsletter (Assoc. of Certified Fraud Examiners) highlighted the article from AP, or some other news outlet. It stands to reason that not only are their machines questionable - so are their accounting methods.


Blah, Blah, Blah,...once again yammering sunshine up my backside

Sorry Mr. President, not buying it. So, SO NOT buying it.

I recently recieved an email from Guess Who?

I am not a member of the TEA PARTY or the GOP!

What has happened to "WE THE PEOPLE"

We, the middle class...the pillars, the load bearing support system of our economy, the buyers, the spenders, the circulators of prosperity, the engine that keeps America moving are on the brink of annihilation! When the Republican speak of "The American People," they speak of the super rich! When the Republicans speak of "protecting small business" they are speaking of corporate giants like the largest banks, and the biggest corporations that fund their campaigns. Essentially those who hold their puppet strings and other extremities!

What's wrong with a flat tax?

Will someone please tell me, What is wrong with a flat tax? All this commotion and self-flagellation and abuse of the American people would be avoided. The only argument would be on what the tax rate would be. I am a fan of the flat tax. Why is everyone not? Please tell me.

Do Something

Hey, Thom can't do everything. He often repeats: "Tag you're it" but are you, each one of you, really doing anything? For starters you might link up with CodePink, take active part in some of their activities. Check out their "Move Over AIPAC" rally in Washington May 21-24 ( Go to D.C., take some friends along.

John Galt

John Galt was NOT a derivatives trader......he made things!

BTW Matt Taibbi's latest book GRIFTOPIA, is excellent. \

Free Market?

The Free Market hypothesis is based on market efficiency, self correction etc.

Warren Buffet: "If the market was efficient, I'd be driving a cab."

George Soros: In his book 'The Crash of 2008' he details how the market is not only NOT self correcting but rather the opposite, that as errors occur it chases and magnifies errors until the errors are so big the they become unsatainable and the market is destroyed (bubbles and crashes).

My Open Letter To The President Of The United States

We are facing the most incredible times in America. Some say this is the beginning of the end, others say it's a new beginning. I believe this is neither a new beginning nor is it the end. Today, this year we are witnessing history repeat itself. The politicians that have taken over Washington D.C. are taking a meat ax to the very system that has sustained the middle class from falling into poverty. There are those who have loathed the social contract fabricated by progressives for the last 100 years, and now is their time to act.

Corporations outspend taxpayers in Congress...

You may be surprised to learn that we spend about $2 billion dollars a year on our dysfunctional Congress. However, it's even more surprising to learn that corporate lobbyists spend even more to buy off our federal lawmakers.
