April 2010


I am a 47 year old divorced dad of 2 minor boys. I am a diabetic for over 41 years.I work in the health care field and am studying to be a registered nurse. I voted for the first time in 2008 and voted for President Obama. I believe in our president, but I believe he needs to grow more of a backbone and take control of this government. The Democratic party needs to become more united and quit pussyfooting around the republican nut jobs.

There Is No Divine Right

We often think of the country as being divided between the left and right, or between the Democrats and Republicans, or between the liberals and conservatives. But I have lately come to see a different sort of divide, and it doesn't line up with our traditional political factions. The divide I see is between those who wish to be left alone and those who wish to rule over others.

Plants love C02, but Oceans Don't

While more C02 may be good for the plants, according to some, the same can't be said about our oceans.


This news report shows that the more C02 we have, the more acid the oceans become. That is really bad. Especially when we depend upon the plant in the ocean to produce oxygen for us. When will people wake up and admit that man is destroying the only home we have, our biosphere?

Why we need "Tariffs' on all Imports

We must charge a 20% Tariff on all Imports and let the chips fall where they may. -------- If China retaliates by spending our dollars that would devalue our dollar which would help our exports.-----------This would create a "Demand" in the USA thus the rich who have been reaping the benefits of "Supply Side Economics" or as Bush #1 called it "Voo Doo Economics" for the last 25 years would because of the "Demand" become Entrepreneurs.

Does S in SEC stand for Sex...And why this story now?

While perusing the news today I saw an interesting article (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/36725550/ns/business-stocks_and_economy/) dealing with SEC employees surfing porn sites instead of doing their jobs.
A study was done by SEC Inspector General David Kotz in response to a request from Senator Charles Grassley, R-Iowa. It found among other things:

to them that the Soviet Union and China had/have socialist cities and states? with socialist fire departments? So then are neocons JUSTIFYING communist socialist fire departments in the old Soviet Union and current day communist China?
