July 2012

BP's sponosorhip of the US Olympic Team doesn't not excuse them and Hillary Clinton from Murdering 11 People in the Gulf.

BP should not think that doing something unimpeachable will exonerate them from murder, just ask the family of the 11 victims from the Deepwater Horizon disaster.

Issue the Corporate Death Penalty to BP.

The filth of Obama’s Free Market Philosophy.

From “The Great Transformation” by Karl Polanyi as it appears in “Death of the Liberal Class” by Pulitzer Prize winning author Chris Hedges, page 1:

Alternatives to Citizens United

Since the airwaves are part of "the commons" it seems to me that a designated number of hours could be assigned for political debates. Each candidate could be alotted an equal amount of time to present their serious proposals, within a limited span of time (say 6 months) before the election. NO political ads would be allowed. This would take the huge cost of advertizing out of the equation; remove the need for campaign budgets, and focus the campaign on logical, serious discussion. Elected officials could spend their time concentrating on the actual problems that nee


Something must be done about the clearing of the rain-forrest. Not enough plants to digest the co2 in the air.


If you lefties think that you have seen all the voter intimidation tactics that the Republicans may well use for the upcoming election in November, there is one that is running undercover right now...and I call it the "Gabby Block".

When Gabby Gifford almost got her head blown off just before the 2010 election, it came from a nutcase who was wound up by Beck, O'Rielly, Hannity, Drudge, Weiner, Bachman, Palin, Coulter and more of those types.

They Don't Play By Rules...

Please, please, please my lefty...knee-jerk...overreactionary..."Oh, they didn't go by the rules and they can't get away with that..."...still complacent because: "We have already won the election and its August-isn't that great"...and liberal thinking friends...

...don't count out Jeb in a power-brokered convention or "coup" in Florida this August!

It SO CLEAR that Romney is the candidate for the few...and not so much for the hard core TeaBaggers and many other conservative types...

Inspection- Romney: It’s All Over for America, Just Like in 63

Maybe George Romney could have saved a company. Maybe he could have made it, and the one he ran, stronger, bigger, a great competitor worldwide. But instead of bold, forward, thinking, George Romney let a company die… and the one he worked for flounder.

Yes, George.

Not Mitt.


Democracy? Not in the good ole U.S. of NRA. How much will its people tolerate before they revolt? Apparently one hell of a lot. Is it stupidity? Is it ignorance? Is it fear? Is it apathy? Is it the absence of a charismatic, vigorous, leader? All of these?

Give us Barabbas!!!

Once again, a mob screams out in support of its cruci-fictions.

Instead of President Obama, who has worked against all odds for the good of everyone in what used to be the United States of America, they want a well known tax criminal, Mitt Romney.

This time, the story ends differently.

This time, it's Pharaoh's turn to walk.


And the Pharaohs walked toward the sea

which parted, incidentally

and thinking it was safe to pass

they lifted Romney by the ass

and walked like Gods between the floods

How our republic could die in the age of Trump - in a stunning parallel to the fall of Rome

Thom plus logo The American republic could die, just like Rome. Wavering for some time on the verge of becoming a complete oligarchy, America is on the verge of flipping from a democratic republic to a strongman or autocratic form of government, something that's happened to dozens of democracies in the past few decades, but never before here.
