US Domestic Politics

Discussion of US politics and their world impact.

Today Mike Papantonio (Host of The Ring Of Fire) is emergency guess hosting on The Ed Schultz Show (http://www.edschultzshow.com

I have heard Mike say, yet again, something that is a great way we should be dealing with The Tea Party (The Whole Tea Party, not just the stupid <to put it nicely> citizens, who are forever complaining about having to have government programs to help people <including themselves> try to achieve what is in The USA Constitution)- “Allow in The Immigrants And Deport The Tea Party.” In so many words he continued by saying let them go try to find anoth

A decade after 9/11 attacks, Americans live in era of endless Bilderberg Wars

This is the American era of endless war.

To grasp its sweep, it helps to visit Fort Campbell, Ky., where the Army will soon open a $31 million complex for wounded troops and those whose bodies are breaking down after a decade of deployments.

Love this video from my old friends and roomates back in the '60s, Java Mann and Dizzy Duk...

Historically Speaking

Greetings all... I'm reading Howard Zinn's "A People's History of the United States" and wanted to share a part of a speech given in 1892 at a People's party national convention by Ignatius Donnelly. I found it remarkably appropriate to our current national climate.

‎60-Mins. & Steve Kroft's segment interviewing Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks

‎60-Mins. & Steve Kroft's segment interviewing Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, exposes how far the once trust worthy 60-Mins. has sunk into The Pockets of their Capitalists owners. I may not agree with everything Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks is (especially, if he is truly political Libertarian and that he believes the governments cannot be trusted to tell us what we need*).

White House `Suggestion Threshhold'?

Good afternoon, all...

Listening to Thom ~ August 30, 2011, I typed down notes that the Obama White House has announced that it is accepting `suggestions' from the American public; any suggestion which is offered by 5,000 separate messages/senders will be deemed to warrant further study, and will be `kicked upstairs' to a policy Wonk for analysis and internal discussion. Thom voiced the concern that `nutters' could innundate the White House with votes for bad ideas - but otherwised seemed cautiously optomistic that this offer was for-real.

The blessings NAFTA has wrought upon the U.S. pale in comparison to Mexico; just look at what's happening in sunny Acapulco!

Economic Royalists

Long-time listener to Thom (on my way to work in the mornings in the Pacific NW), first post.

I found Thom's 9-minute video on true anti-Americanism this morning (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7BGb5X1C6Bs&feature=youtu.be), and I love how he has his finger on the pulse. In this video, he gives about the best 50-word-or-less synopsis I've heard in recent years:

“These economic royalists have returned to power in American and have been infecting this nation with their anti-American propaganda ever since. Trying to clog up everything this nation has accomplished…”

How do you compromise with a group who's goal is to make the middle class of America fail and then blame you for it???!

This to me is the billion dollar question for Obama. From the stimulus to healthcare reform to wall street reform to so much else, the compromise position taken by Obama has always made the policy demonstrably worse for the country as a whole than the original plan. This is not a mere difference in ideology at work here.

Has anyone else heard of the Farm Bill S510

I was actually surfing the web for info on building your own hoop houses, when I came upon this link.

If you have a home garden or enjoy eating natural organic food please read this. I still can't believe I never heard of this before. I wish I had called in to Bernie Sanders when I read this, to get his take on the whole thing. Perhaps Thom could elaborate on it more, this needs to get out to the media.

Time to Rethink the War on Terror

When Eric Holder eventually steps down as Attorney General, he will leave behind a complicated legacy, some of it tragic, like his decision not to prosecute Wall Street after the financial crisis, and his all-out war on whistleblowers like Edward Snowden.
