Tell Mr President "WE 8 OUR PEEZ!"

we 8 our peas when we've lost wages in the last 20 yrs

we 8 our peas when we lost trillions of home value

W8OP when we lost millions of jobs

W8OP when we have 50 million uninsured

...................and on and on.

Please add to this list

WE 8 OUR PEAS!

Primary election for the dems

It seems President Obama needs to be challenged with a primary. Feingold/ grayson ticket running on The Bull Moose platform would get my vote. it's unbelievable that the Bull Moose platform is 100 years old and we are in the same situation.

Are we slaveholders?

The Art of Politics: Honest Bastards, Phonies, and Authentic Spirits

“The most essential skill in political theater and a consumer culture is artifice.

Trump - Dumb Luck or A Master Manipulator?

Thom plus logo Either it's an act of a master manipulator, or he has the best luck there is. Donald Trump wanted the Fed to lower interest rates, knowing that that would provide a solid and multi-year boost to the economy. But when Trump came into office, rates were already low and the Fed was not inclined to help.
