Obama has now successfully conducted his second coup on democracy -


When will democracy loving democrats stand up to their Imperial President ?

Or are ANY actions ok with democrats because it's Their Guy doing it?

Couple this with the TPP secret corporate free trade agreement and it seems our president is doing the bidding of the oligarchs as Thom calls them. The TPP will negate local laws in favor of rulings from a international tribunal loaded with corporate attorneys.

Localities and states will be on the hook if an environmental law decreases profits for corporations...... And what do environmental laws od except add costs to corporations by outlawing pollution and other destructions of the Commons.

TPP it could be argued will Kill the concept of Democracy and Local contol. It is the World Elite governing as they see fit. and Obama is 100% behind these attacksmon democracy and rule by the 99%.

When will democrats stand up to their guy when he dos the exact wrong thing?

Or will "but.......but.....but.....Romney is worse" carry the day and allow any and all attacks on the social safety net and democracy in general by the supposedly democratic candidate?

Romney is worse because he won't even bother to pretend that he's trying to be ethical and work by the US Constitution.

With a President who at least pretends, we can do our part and hide our heads in the sand—because then the bad stuff all goes away!

Carbon Tax... Where Should We Start?

In Washington State a fierce debate has erupted over a ballot measure aimed at fighting climate change. As the reality of runaway climate change continues to sink in, the question of what do about it gets even more pressing.

We are not just dealing with the possibility of a few hotter days there - or a few nastier thunderstorms there.
