The following is from Robert Reich on Obama’s Marvelous Economic Recovery taken from the Huffington Post:

SS vs Federal budgets

Is there a website I can go to that will show two sets of pie charts: one showing Social Security (SS tax income and how it is spent) and the other showing Federal Taxes (what we pay in by way of federal income taxes and how it is spent). I live in a state where all news media is Republican controlled and I need some facts to show fellow voters that Social Security and Medicare is not the problem.

Phlegethon...?

There is no reference to "secularism" in the Encyclopedia of Philosophy (Macmillan, 1967). I accuse those dismayed about such free-thinking as might question the reliability of truth claims and necessary and/or indubitable information of standing in the stagnant pool of still authority (into which the spiritually timorous toe need only dip once). I argue that we should "baptize" ourselves in the fluid truth as often as our best intentions require.

Correlative selves...?

A Plea to White GOP Males from a white lefty male.

Please, please, grow a pair already. You dweebs have become an embarrassment to Caucasian males from Nome to Miami. Your ignorance, corruption, cowardliness, and lack of any kind of originality or passion, your inability to experience anything even resembling compassion or humanity is quite pathetic and embarrassing.

Individual Freedom and State's Rights ignored by the Right Wing

The War on Cannabis, with it's racist and quasi-scientific roots, should be a rallying call for conservative action. The Tea Party, if it really believed what it said, would be guarding the farmers and the clubs with their beloved guns.

A Cannabis economy of small farms, not unlike the wine economy, is all a town needs to survive and the communities that stand behind these freedoms will thrive.

The Science is a lie, the Laws are racist in their nature and corrupted further by the way they are wielded.

But where are they?

The U.N. (indeed, the world) has changed little in 20 years. It still looks away, hamstrung by the foul and most undemocratic Security Council veto and a weak, puppet Secretary General. These war crimes should haunt not only Europe but all people capable of compassion, anywhere.

Foreclosures

I am a new international investor looking to buy property in the US market and have come across foreclosures with ridiculous prices, I would like to know are these prices for real, I mean how can they be so low?

Thanks

Sanders continues the lie...

While the SS Trust Fund does indeed have the trillions in Treasuries Bernie talks about and further, that it is also true that these Treasuries are available to be redeemed to pay SS claims, the fact of the matter is that when these Treasuries are redeemed, they are redeemed against the General Fund of the US. The General Fund runs at a deficit and everytime the SS needs money the General Fund must borrow more and more money.

How the GOP Is Going After ObamaCare Now

With House Republicans reportedly putting the finishing touches on a compromise deal, the GOP healthcare plan is officially back from the dead.

But don't get your hopes up - the new Trumpcare is just as bad as the old Trumpcare.

In fact - it might even be worse.
