Remove Profiteering and Support a Public Option in Healthcare Reform

The Public Option is an absolute necessity to any truly effective healthcare overhaul. Here’s why.

Encourage Foreign Investment – Competition to Provide Capital

A great opportunity to encourage foreign investment in this country...maybe take some of the "mono" out of the (transnational corporate) monopolies with some good, old-fashioned, capitalist-inspired COMPETITION. This great country should not be at the mercy of it's uber-rich and -powerful. Let's give tax breaks to "new" foreign investors just like we give tax breaks to companies that offshore our d

The Last Mayor of Pompeii

Coming to power in November 2008, as the Democrats did, was like being elected mayor to a community recently leveled by a natural disaster.

Show some love. Hug a Neocon today!

We discuss a naive essay written by a well meaning liberal regarding attempting to understand the other side. It's totally useless and we say why.

Inspection- Why "Syfy?"

Nothing is as it seems anymore. A "Compassionate Conservative" is anything but. An advocate for change bitches and moans about "the professional Left" who wants actual change, when it's the professional Right who is doing its damnedest to drive a stake into his heart unless he abandons change.

Russ Warner for U. S. Congress California 26th District

Dear Thom,

I've enjoyed and have learned a lot from your talking to some of the candidates that need our support in this election that is so critical.

May I suggest you feature Russ Warner, a true progressive and very nice man, the very opposite of his opponent, the very awful Congressman David Dreier.

David Dreier is a homophobe, wants to privatize Social Security, has voted NO on the Paycheck Fairness Act, American Rcovery and Reinvestment Act, Health Care Reform and Wall Street Reform.

Foreclosure Fraud -- Are We Still A Nation of Laws???

A very intelligent friend of mine in school shared his secret to brilliance (and high exam scores): "Emphasize the obvious and you'll never go wrong." Yet, every media blurb, every political scoundral, every expert sounding off on the foreclosure debacle misses the obvious: What EVIDENCE does the Plaintiff (ie. trustee, bank, etc.) offer to PROVE a superior right to the Defendant's Real Property?

Why you must vote

Yesterday, I got into an internet debate last night with a Tea Partier who insisted on referring to voting as a "privilege and not a right". He went on to challenge anyone to show him where it says that American citizens have a right to vote. I linked him to the United States Consitution, cited the relevant amendment, and even quoted the text in my post. He still denied it. He was not alone either. Several others repeated the "voting is a privilege not a right" mantra.

A Decent Berryal

Another lease has expired and once again it is time to dust and pack Katherine's precious library, my only inheritance, into cardboard liquor boxes from Publix and search for another hovel. Oh Berry, Berry -Street running green with copper magnet wire corrosion! Will you not give back one mortgage of the hundreds and hundreds of Minnie's you kept for yourselves and National City Bank? Can you not forgo one Casino, one winter's jaunt to the Antilles so that I may before I die have just a small place of my own with a fenced yard and a room for Pa?

Does Trump "Tweet" When His Staff Says No?

Thom plus logo Lev Parnas tells the story of how Donald Trump fired ambassador Marie Yovanovitch at least "four or five times," and that they were afraid that he would "fire her with a tweet." This is not the first time we have heard from White House insiders that the president often gives irrational or stupid orders that his staff then ignores.
