To good to be true and to bad to be false? TPP

I am conflicted. I voted for Obama, I thought he wanted unions and, better healthcare and, in the end, I think he still does. However, I'm not sure how I feel about the TPP. I obviously know it sucks. But, what if there is something else here... I have been researching a lot about politics. It's becoming quite obsessive. I felt really betrayed by the TPP, I couldn't accept it. Now, I have a few new theories. I still don't believe Obama is that evil. First, do you guys think this is Obama's strategy to begin a new revolution? Is this fuel to fire the revolution?

Brunch With Bernie needs to come back

My first introduction to Bernie Sanders, a few years ago, was through Thom Hartmann's "Brunch with Bernie" segment on Fridays. It amazed me the candor the man had, and his forthrightness on answering questions from even the most teabaggery caller. He would leave each call with him and the caller agreeing on at least one point. Even running for mayor, he got the support of a not-insignificant portion of republican voters. This is something that is very rare in society, not to mention among sitting or former politicians.

The PEOPLE Win . . . Obama REJECTS the Keystone Pipeline!!

The PEOPLE win!! The PEOPLE win!!

Thank you President Obama! And THANK YOU Bill McKibben and 350.org!!

Today we CELEBRATE! Tomorrow, we get back to work. Remember, this decision by the President probably gives the Energy Industry the power to SUE the U.S. under the "investor dispute tribunals" set up by the TPP!!

BREAKING NEWS! President Obama REJECTS the Keystone XL!

I don't know about you but I have been involved right from the start protesting this pipeline for YEARS now. I spent countless hours reading the environmental reports and that's how I came to my decision that this pipeline was bad for our country. I signed petitions, posted on this board and others about the issues and educated people around me. You can bet I am doing a HAPPY DANCE right now! If you are interested, watch the video of the announcement at the link below.

If You Want to Win, Go Progressive

The big question right now is whether to call Hillary Clinton a progressive, or a "moderate."
