Pittsburgh in the 60’s- I loves me some PHIL

Sherry Pasquarello - Well we all know what’s been going on in the past few days. Unless of course you happen to be related to Phil. Yes, you must know Phil, don’t you? Pennsylvania’s most famous groundhog!

Danger's of ending the blooming of democracy in Egypt.

Egypt: A shock doctrine moment?

Milton Friedman is digging at his casket lid trying to get out of his grave. Egypt! The most populated country in the Middle East! Ripe for privatization! $2 bucks a day average wage. "We'll make it four! Just give us your young or old and... ( what the hell we'll make it six!) and You all will be able to afford bread for the rest of your lives...

courts need power to overturn unconstitutional laws

Thom: Would you really rather that Congress gets the last word on what is constitutional, over the courts? Yes, the Supreme Court is corrupt and political. Some of its members attend right wing conventions funded by oil billionaires. But they are still better than Congress, most of whose members are fully bought and paid for. The constitution give judges life appointments so they can, in theory, protect the rights of minorities and the politically powerless without having to face the voters. In the past 5 years, Congress and the executiv

sleep with Boehner

Could use the money, but would really be tough to actually do...maybe two bags -one for him and an extra for me to barf in. Maybe the two LL's mean Love em and Leave em.... new initials for him...BBB...Bangin' Bawlin' Boner! I think I'd be crying to if I resorted to that.

As progressives we have a lot to do in Arizona. Senator 1070 now has a bill to exempt Arizona from federal laws whenever they desire and the GOP is seeking to throw nearly 300,000 of our most needy friends off the medicare health insurance called ACCESS here in Arizona. A number of us in Democracy For America, Maricopa ounty ( are working to set a new age phone tree to bring out activist and encourage the just interested to call, write, email, twitter, blog and otherwise take back our state. If anyone is out in Thom land is interested in what we're doing, come o

The other way we're subsidizing Walmart...

Most of us know how taxpayers subsidize Walmart's low wages with billions of dollars in Medicaid, food stamps, and other financial assistance for workers. But, did you know that we're also subsidizing the retail giant by paying the cost of their environmental destruction.
