Obama Proposes Manditory Overtime: How to Pay For This? Cut the Salary/Stock Benefits of nCEO's Who Make 400-1 ratio, passing this on to consumers or cutting existing staff hours is bunk

Let's return to some level of sanity in pay/income equaliity for all of our fellow Americans and return to an income equity equation that promotes a fair and balanced standard of living for everyone.

Chris Christie Announces Run For President, (here seen in a rare photo with his twin brother Tweedle Dum).

Thom, would you tell Abraham Lincoln to "get over" his whiteness?

"You and we are different races. We have between us a broader difference than exists between almost any other two races. Whether it is right or wrong I need not discuss, but this physical difference is a great disadvantage to us both, as I think your race suffer very greatly, many of them by living among us, while ours suffer from your presence. In a word we suffer on each side. If this is admitted, it affords a reason at least why we should be separated..." Abraham Lincoln

SAD but perhaps TRUE

Bernie Sanders is the best thing that's happened to American politics in decades, BUT Bernie Sanders will be 75 years old if sworn in as President on January 2017 and that is troubling , because even if he serves his first 4 year term, he will be 80 starting his second and 84 or 85 if he completes his Presidency. Actuarials state by this time he will be dead.

The New Corporate Marketing Fascism of the Politically Correct Internet

Ever heard of Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs)? If you have your virus checker/scanners set to detect and delete PUPs then you might be ok.* They can't call them spyware or viruses or trojans anymore because the marketing people get all ticked off at anyone who uses those, now, politically incorrect terms. What? You thought that printer was pretty cheap? A good buy? Where the ink cartridge or toner cartridge replacements are just about as expensive as the printer itself? Well, there is another way they make up for that "cheap" price...


George W Bush said the biggest failure of his presidency was not privatizing seniors pensions, which is saying a lot since GWB left the country in 2 wars, bleeding 3 trillion dollars from the public treasury.

Sorry I've enjoyed your show for years but I'm calling a spade a spade. You support fascism of Obamacare.

The government is forcing us to get health insurance for corporate profit.

Would a Democratic President Wield Power as Ruthlessly as Trump?

Thom plus logo Interestingly, the current divide in the Senate gives us an insight into how powerful a genuinely progressive Democratic president could be, and how much he or she could get done. As we saw yesterday, the Republicans voted repeatedly to participate in a cover-up of Donald Trump's crimes.
