Americans who are constantly living in fear of terrorism thanks to a combination of the Corporate run Media and the right wing Republican party , somehow have missed the fact that they themselves are being enslaved by their own series of Govern

Social Security Disability


Why would the republicans give a heads up as to what they will do when SSI disability runs out? Why not just wait and not refund SSI disabilty when it happens??

Walmart manager threatens to lynch African American worker in Richmond, CA.

This from the Color of Change:

Walmart Manager Art Van Riper threatened to lynch Markeith Washington — and he still has a job!

Net Neutrality to DIE by loophole.

Ah yes, another favorite trick of Republicans used most notoriously on Wisconsin Unions - sabotage a critical operating aspect but don't outright ban the overall practice.

Fight for the Future has put out the following bulletin:

Sue the State

I think the federal government should pass a law where people who have wrongfully had their vote suppresed can sue the State for blocking their ability to perform their civic duty.

Perhaps that would make States think twice about voter suppression laws.

Of course, I know it will never happen - too many R's would lose their seats.

Middle of Winter and no hot water.

Less than two years ago I bought a gas Whirlpool Hot Water Heater from Lowes and it just recently malfunctioned...no hot water...pilot light was out. The LED was flashing a code of four flashes indicating an over-temperature condition. I was able to relight the pilot but the main burner would not come on when I turned the knob to any of the active positions. I checked the voltage of the thermocouple/thermopile by measuring the voltage at the two wire plug that connects to the Honeywell gas flow controller right after letting the pilot light burn for several minutes.


Attention: Thom Hartmann and thy followers:

McCain is a parasite on American Society outdone only by the Clintons.
