How about a JOBS Commission instead of a deficit commission? I sent that message to the President and my representatives this morning, for whatever good it will do. I now have 2 choices as to what to do with the rest my time: 1) Continue to work my arse calling and writing my representatives asking them to save Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid now, or; 2) Get two more jobs ("How uniquely American!") and work my arse off so I can afford to do without The Big Three later. Either way, I'm working my arse off. And either way, it seems that I'm screwed!

So well said. Let's hope that he starts listening. Although, because he has not attacked election fraud, he might think that being a corporate shill is "The WayTo Go", and as far as The People are concerned: "FUA". Before election he developed a fantastic grass roots link - and broke it before his Inaugural Speech. (remember "what is the most important thing that you want me to do"...... and "Seriously check out impeachment issues" was #1? He ignored or fumbled with just about all our concerns.)

I suggest that the best we can do is to "frighten" him and the DNC into realizing that that he is unlikely to be re-elected. He is throwing not just all of us under the bus - but also the chances of a non-white living in the White House in the next 50 years. He needs to understand that there is a Civil War taking place on numerous fronts.

Tax cheats stash $2 trillion overseas!

America's biggest companies are playing by their own set of rules. According to a recent report from two major watchdog organizations, our nation's Fortune 500 companies have $2.1 trillion dollars stashed in overseas tax havens.

To put that number in perspective, it's worth noting that the entire federal budget for 2015 was only about $3.8 trillion.
