Payday loans, rent, travel, government pensions and the shutdown.

I have a $100 payday loan with Moneytree. It cost me $15 for 38 days. My military retirement and disability will pay this when they cash the check for $115.00 on 1 Nov. If the government defaults and does not pay my retirement, it will cost me a returned check fee from Moneytree and a bank charge. I do not have overdraft protection. It may cost me $70 dollars or more. I am probably one of the lucky ones.

This seems to me just another attack on the poor just as bad if not worse than the voter restriction laws .Again the republicans are going after a so-called problem with a bazooka in an attempt to rationalize their crusade against social security cuts.

Irrationally, the Illuminazi faction of the Cabal has triggered a partial government shutdown in the United States, hoping to prepare ground for martial law later down the road. Needless to say, their plans will NOT be allowed to succeed and their actions have only resulted in an important wave of mass awakening instead.

Comparing Bin Laden to?

Interesting opening of your show today when you tried to compare Bin Laden to the Republicans. Your words were, "Bin Laden stated he wanted to fundamentally transform America", yet the only guy I have ever heard speak the exact same words is oddly enough, our president.

Maybe another Bin Laden quote would be in order.

Panic stricken Miriam Carey gunned down in front of her toddler near White House?!?

My condolences to the family of Miriam Carey.

Our self-interested politicians are crafting a society that is truly horrifying.

NPR spreading Obama's pro-fracking propaganda.

NPR's programming is sponsored by the American Natural Gas Association, the umbrella group for the frackers who pollute our water, land, and communities.

Bill Smith

Tell the people that as long as Boehner won't allow a vote on the debt ceiling it does not show who voted to raise it and who did not. That in turn allows the Republicans the opportunity to point the finger of obstruction at Democrats. They do so in their never ending attempt to scuddle Obama care. Allow a vote and the country will see the Republicans as usual obstructionists.

Health Care Investments

With the Affordable Care Act seeming seemingly the largest looming factor of this government shut down, I wonder... Of the nay-sayers holding us hostage, how many of them have investments in privatized health care? Is Obamacare threatening their personal investements? If that's the case then we have much to worry about and need to expose this. We know it's all about personal finances and the 1% being unwilling to share the load. Ludacrous!

"The Saddest Thing Is This Won't Be Breaking News"

Thom plus logo As the world burns, and more and more fossil fuels are being used every day planet-wide, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels passed 416 ppm this week at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii. In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.
