Hello All I don't know if it is my age (55) or just the things I seen throughout my life..But somewhere in the early 2000's I started to see the world as a much diifferent place..Being sucked into this Republican crap like a piece of dirt into a Hoover Sweeper.Lately many people scream at me as if thier believes are right..Most conseritive Christians buy into this Republican Crap' and Fox News is the King of the sound bite...What these brain dead people are falling for is a self serving agenda that goes 180% againist what the bible teachs..Everyday I have someone go on and on about "Obama Care" and I feel the "Working Poor" who Service us all deserve health care.Do they think that the Walmart and/or McDonalds workers don't deserve health care? Plus many other low paid workers That thier lives are expendable? These are people that service all of us! So till someone comes up with a better idea to insure the working poor I say Shut Up !..Some politicans go as far as want to do away with the minimum wage..This sounds like a perfect world to me -Rich people pay no taxes and have slaves..As for the power of Greed they(Republicans) are going to any length to win..Low end folks don't need to vote..Do I think the path the country we are on is a good one? NO but the sweet sound of "Austeritiy" will be the final straw the will kill this nation...The Paul Ryan Budget give the millionaires over a trillion in tax cuts over ten years...Silly for someone who wants to cut the budget? All Great Empires Fall when the Top fails to take heed of the brothers and sisters here at the bottom..The cream will rise to the top....History is about to rewrite it's self and very soon..

Not good options to pick on this question Thom. So while I voted yes, I actually would have preferred to say no, but then it will depend on SCOTUS, but perhaps Justice Thomas will err on the right side again like he did with the AFHC Law. One can only hope. There are so many laws that are really unconstitutional and I don't see them saying a word about those.

GOP Blocks Equal Pay...again.

Just in time for election season, Senate Republicans blocked legislation aimed at closing the gender pay gap. For the third time since 2012, Republicans refused to allow debate on the Paycheck Fairness Act, and reminded women that the GOP doesn't believe in equal pay for equal work.

From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
