US Domestic Politics

Discussion of US politics and their world impact.

Injustice breeds Paranoia

We’ve all heard that the Obama Administration is a bit insular, paranoid and overly concerned with how they are perceived outside of their trusted circle of friends. Which came first, the paranoia or the treatment by figures of authority causing the paranoia? Think Caucus Room Conspiracy and overzealous Tea Partiers whose borderline violent actions going unchecked by local authorities.

Science Fraud

American bribery is a great export. Fraud is multi-lingual, multi-cultural, and what capitalism is all about. [quote]

Conservative? Not if you favor funding the wars.

Why do we, and the mainstream media, allow politicians to label themselves "conservative" when they have funded wars with hundreds of billions of borrowed dollars, over and over? Even we on the left mistakenly accept this term for them.

CIA Human Experimentation

Yep, by all means keep your moral relativism alive no matter how many grotesque acts are committed by your DNC or RNC elected politicians. What really matters is that the status quo never changes and that memes and impotence is your birthright according to some on this forum. More Hope and Change, don't you know. Next up Killary.

Witness #40

documents/unmasking-Ferguson-witness-

a racist that could not have been at the seen is the primary witness the prosecutor bases his case on. She read of the report of Wilson in the newspaper and what he said, then adopted it. No vetting, no doubting her like the last time she offered fraudulent information and was dismissed. This time she got the grand jury spot and perjured herself.

ACA, TAXES - SNAFU

The ACA was formulated to favor BIG business in many ways. Here is yet another proof.

I got an interesting note from my CPA today (I run a small business).

It said that the government hasn't issued sensible guidlines as to how the ACA fits into the tax framework. It seems that hidden in all of this is an extra tax bomb that limits your true choices to "group" plans instead of individual plans. The only people capable of that little subversion are the large insurance companies. So much for choice.

Grand Juries ought to end

Australia and Canada ended them after the UK ended them. 16th century practices and procedures just might be outdated, like witch trials and inquisitions. 50% of US states have no grand jury.

Go Connecticut

The constitution gets a reprieval in the Connecticut case filed today to overturn civl law exemption for gun industry. Torte law is a constitutional right, and the bane of a fascist regime. Manufacturers are people ought to be linked to overthrow citizens united.

Want to know what is worse than the CIA Report?

Suddenly the real dirt, criminality, torture, inhumane values, for those at the top of our government demonstrate once again (as if this were not obvious long before) that those who lead the country are sub human and looking for a legal escape clause to justify their crimes against humanity. As most on the left already know, there is absolutely no difference between the US and terror fighters all over the planet.
