Robert Reich: Public vs. Private Morality

PLUTOCRACY

The LGBT Dust-Up Timing is Good...SHHHHHHHH...

President Obama has again shown that he is politically astute in dealing with "hot button issues" that might tend to hurt his reelection in the fall by bringing another OBVIOUSLY disruptive element onto the table in the spring before the election. Gay marriage is obviously politically and electorally disruptive to most everyone except of course to the LGBT community where, understandibly, its a magnified issue that is always on their front burners...and that's OK.

The fraud lady continues on

Elizabeth Warren epitomizes Hartmann's democrat rule. Tell a lie, and keep telling it, and maybe some one will eventually believe it.

Israel's Occupy

Press Release May 15, 2012

Unlike GOP, ALEC’s Obama and DNC NOT offering financial help$$$ in Walker recall.

Obama and the Democrats don't want to piss off the ALEC corporations that pay the bills or these same corporations might fund a campaign against them.

Today's Democrats put their own self interest before the welfare of the People, just like the filthy GOP.

Republican "War on Women" made up by Democrats? You REALLY think so? Of course not!

Made up? Really? These are the same people that insist their jokes are funny, etc.

But look at this wikipedia entry on "war on women": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_on_Women

What great things has Mitt done? Not being snarky -- just wondering.

If Mitt has the gravitas, the experience, the insight to be president, then we should be hearing a list of his accomplishments and plans.

About Bain Capital -- that was about wealt increasing, not job-increasing. And even with the steel mill that he boasts about in an ad, Bain put in about 16 million and the federal government about twice that much. Maybe that was a good project -- I don't know -- but it sure goes against the general theme of not needing government intervention.

A System for Electing Legislators, part 1: The Case

There are two well recognized methods of electing legislatures: single-member districts and proportional representation. Both provide something, of course, otherwise they wouldn’t be used, but they also both have shortcomings.

The 23rd Psalm (Updated by Palinittes & Ryanittes)

The world is mine to shepherd; I shall not want.
It maketh me to lie down in green-inked pastures:
It leadeth me beside filling coffers.
It restoreth my gold:
It leadeth me in the paths of richness for my name’ sake.

Trump Is Using Racist White People To Make The Rich Richer

There is this whole mythology that Donald Trump came to power because 53% of white women voted for him, because 66% of white working men who didn't have a college degree voted for him.

That may be, but those are not his constituents. Those are his suckers. Those are his rubes.
