Ring of Fire Oct. 29, 2011 Robert F. (Sucker) Kennedy was interviewing Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (DEMOCRAT) from Rhode Island about climate warming. The part I heard Whitehouse went off on a bill he's working on to REGULATE the Internet. He gave all these excuses.... America is losing a tera byte of data per day to China (stealing it). We're losing intellectual property rights. (Wall Street money).. What a bunch of crap and RF (Sucker) K, just kissed his arse with no intellectual questioning.
Interesting that all of this voter suppression effort is going on in states where Republicans are in control, you would think that as the majority party in those states they would want to expand registration, open up registration booths in every mall. Why would Republicans want to suppress the vote in States they control? The FBI documented that nationally in 2004 there were less than 100 cases of voter fraud. I can only think of one reason why Republicans want to tamper with the right to vote...they know they and their ideas are not the majority. Voter suppression e

From today's NYT:
'Finally, an idea from the blogosphere: U.S. congressmen should have to dress like Nascar drivers and wear the logos of all the banks, investment banks, insurance companies and real estate firms that they’re taking money from. The public needs to know."
I love this story! http://www.unionleader.com/article/20111028/NEWS03/710289961
23 year old Justina Justin busted at Occupy Manchester for pimping a 16 year old girl she met at protest.
Are the Oakland police dressed to instagate another riot like they did the other day when they attacked Mr. Olsen?
It is obvious to me the intention of the Oakland police was to engage in a riot because they were dressed for the part. How often would you see dozens of people dressing in hockey or football gear WITHOUT INTENDING to engage in either a hockey or football game??

How did Occupy San Francisco survive? The answers might vary from person to person according to their type of perspective and how knowledgeable that person is about the actual process of public safety officials and police, politicians, and activists acting and reacting to each other. Some of that process is not visible to those "camping", that is physically occupying the plaza. Among these people there are those who believe that sheer numbers and resolve are key, while others stress the efficacy of particular tactics.
Typically, when new and creative ideas are proposed, people will line up to shoot them down. They claim it won’t work because of this or it can’t succeed because of that. Well, I have one that will employ Americans, reduce prison overcrowding, save tax money and reduce illegal immigration.
We know that conservatives have entitlements in their crosshairs. Its because the big programs like Social Security and Medicare are fairly well innoculated against crony capitalism, at least in their present form, and they are drooling over the prospect of putting all that cash out on the table to be divvied up. That's no surprise since crony capitalism is the driving force behind conservative ideology anyway. But they are also intent on slashing what's called "discretionary spending", that part of the budget that is not mandated by
I hear this complaint daily. On talk radio, on Fox, on facebook, etc. The basic message is this:
I am old enough to remember the Civil Rights movement and the images of American Citizens being beaten and hosed by American Law Enforcement authorities. I also remember the American Anti Viet Nam War protests and the violence visited upon them by American Authority Figures. My wife of 43 years and I were at the 1968 Democratic Convention protests and even though I was active duty Air Force (not in uniform) we were witness to the Police Riot and we were victims of tear gassing by the Police and Illinois Army National Guard.
Hello everyone, A few months ago, Bill Maher showed a video of the Republican debates where the candidates were all asked if they would support a tax bill that included provisions that would subsidize business. I don't remember the details, but it was ridiculous & made no financial sense what so ever. But they all said "no". Does anyone know what I'm referring to, & if so, can you post a link for the video? Sorry for the vague post, but I don't remember the deatails. Thanks in advance, Billy
1) Supreme Court; 2) Tax Policy; 3. Military Policy
The Supreme Court has given us "Money = Speech" and "Corporations are People [my friend]. But Oligarchy has worked for more than 30 years to work public awareness, elect Presidents and Senators, and groom/appoint judges who would install those doctrines and defend them against legislative and judicial attack.
Now, a new organization, the "53 percenters", has arisen. These are The Conservatives who are light-years away from being in the 1%, but don't wish to be identified with the 99 percenters, even though they belong to the 99%. I call them the 33 percenters.
