the national debt

Biggest driver of the debt is not the big three, SS, medicare, and medicaid. It is the tax cuts that Obama maid permanent. They cost $4 trillion every 10 years.

Democrats and Republicans come together to monetize their public service against the People.

The following excerpt is from pages 251 – 255 of the book “This Town” by Mark Leibovich. Buy the book and read it:

Here is one lie everyone I feel forgot

The Post Office will stop delivering mail on Saturdays and close “hundreds” of Post office stations and centers if they didn’t get their funds by July of this year. Well.. I still get my mail.

Inspection- School Shootings


The shootings in Centennial, Colorado bring up a topic I have addressed before. Obviously our problems with gun violence go beyond just "guns," not even just one side of the political equation. But if writing about this can stop one student on the border of bringing a gun to school for revenge, I will write this column again and again...

 Once again we're going to hear how more guns in schools, or wherever, will solve children with guns killing students and teachers. Once again we'll hear how regulating guns will solve the gun problem. Once again, like Lazarus in Star Trek, we will be stuck in this death grip battle, in a very small rhetorical room from which, in this country, there is no escape.
  What if I told you there was something you could do, right now: yes, "you," about this. It might be a small thing, but still a lot of "small" can make a big difference. What you could do would not offend gun rights advocates. What you might do wouldn't offend gun regulation advocates. And it could help cut down on gun violence: especially if we reach out to others, and our youth.

MANDELA-genuine respect

There went a great man, who millions mourn. That makes me think about the "so-called" great people's funerals here and around the world. They who will have a small family gathering, and hide the location of the graves, from the people lining up to go piss on them. Most too grandious to realize that fact.

GM Shows Why We Need Medicare for All

Thom plus logo General Motors just pulled healthcare for 50,000 workers. There are some Democratic candidates suggesting that people love their health insurance companies, but this calculated move by a giant corporation that you and I helped bail out proves that employer sponsored healthcare is just another tool to control workers.
