March 2016

If Garland's this pro-Labor, no wonder the GOP fears him.

Take it from one of their own scribes. Anybody out there in reality land ever hear of a rightist scribbler going by the name Jazz Shaw? His piece was posted appropriately enough on some righty site calling itself "Hot Air."

And they wonder why reasonable people find them so out of it.

Clinton remarks on Romeny/Ryan Medicare proposals

Note this puts his earlier remark to Ryan in context. Clinton said the loss in NY was a rebuff to the GOP Medicare proposals, but he hoped the Democrats didn't take that as a mandate to do nothing (in context, about the growing cost of Medicare). In these remarks , he explains what the Democrats did about it, and why they were better:


"Americans are too broadly underinformed to digest nuggets of information that seem to contradict what they know of the world. Instead, news channels prefer to feed Americans a constant stream of simplified information, all of which fits what they already know. That way they don't have to devote more air time or newsprint space to explanations or further investigations... Politicians and the media have conspired to infantilize, to dumb down, the American public.

Reasons to run

Could Trump's run for the presidency really be an effort to put Clinton over the top?

Want to stop Islamic terrorism?

How do you stop Islamic terrorism? Military? FBI unit? CIA intelligence? ( now there's an oxymoron) NO. STOP KILLING MOSLEMS. Tomorrow at 3, pull ALL troops out of the Middle east and Northern Africa.

Want to stop cop killings? STOP KILLING US. Patriotic AMERICANS are fed up with the cowardly, chicken shit cops saying " I felt threatened". I heard the same thing from every low-life scum I ever challenged. Palm Beach cops do their jobs withoout confrontation. Hire peace officers, not ex-military cowards.

Say goodbye to your home and car radios

Say goodbye to your home and car radios

After the March 28 FCC sale of the audio frequencies to the wireless data corps, they will complete the digitization of the entire spectrum of frequencies next year.

Right now, you are listening to companion audio and digital transmission of local radio stations.

The radio transmission towers will cease to transmitt audio over the privatized digital wireless "airways."

Just as you need a cable or satilite subscription for TV, you will need a digital radio & subscription for your home and car.

The US House will close Wednesday afternoon, March 23, and not return until April 11. The FCC auction March 28 will be accomplished while the House and Senate are out of town.

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.
