Against Citizens United

Hey,

This all can be checked pretty much online... I sent this in as comments to CREDO for a petition against Citizens United for I think the SEC.

By emphasizing Wealth Concentration over Science Obama fuels Today’s Mass Extinction and propels us toward a Holocene-Anthropocene Thermal Maximum

And our children will die. All because Obama lied about giving Science greater weight in his decision making.

Giving Greater wieght to science begets decisions that are better for the 99%.

In substance, Obama and Romney do NOT differ all that much in their approach to global warming and the planet's failing environment. Obama says he believes in Global Warming but in reality acts like he doesn't.

Both Romney and Obama are miscarriages of the Public's Best Interest, both commercially and environmentally.

Sad.

Widespread Failure by Obama’s EPA: 28 New Sites where Coal Ash has polluted Ground Water are revealed in just IA, CO, NC, SC, TX, and WV alone.

A new report by the Environmental Integrity Project documents that 49 coal-fired power plants have contaminated groundwater at 116 coal ash disposal sites in the United States. The data which was released by the U.S.

MAY GOD BLESS US ALL.

U.S. and the use of torture

On the Friday, Apr. 27 edition of the 'Big Picture', in regards to the U.S.'s use of water-boarding, you mentioned that two allies of the U.S,

Great Britain and Israel, never use torture to gather informantion from prisioners. Just what planet are you living on? They're have been dozens of documented cases of Israeli abuse of Palestinian prisioners as well as mistreatment by British forces on I.R.A. militants as well.

It's the Interest, Stupid!!

The next time a Republican tries to blame the increasing National Debt on Obama, just mention to them how much the annual interest alone is running on the debt he inherited from all of the past Republican Administrations. The answer? It's close to $0.5 Trillion/year. So given that Obama has been in office for about three years, the national debt could go up $1.5 Trillion and NONE of it would be his fault.

Give the Republicans Power back in 2012?

Do Republicans deserve to get political power back in 2012? Everyone knows how well Republicans can criticize or undermine any Democratic accomplishment.

I sincerely apologize

I sincerely apologize for the first sentence in my 15 October posting. If I am to act as a bonging agent, insulting comments are a bad start.

How is she doing? Well I hope.

RNC Talking Point: Blame Bush

RNC Talking Point put forth by a conservative poster: Obama apologists continue to blame George Bush for this.

SCVIndy: It’s like ‘instant fire back’ of a previously resolved talking point that I’ve been reading of late where conservatives try to ‘distance’ themselves from the failures of the Bush Administration.

What I’m actually doing here is just reiterating the history of George W Bush.

RNC Talking Point: National Debt

I’m now starting to see the RNC talking points that are being put on local newspaper websites that are both out of context and misleading. I’m going to post them as I find them along with my responses. I hope they are of use.

Barrett’s ties to ALEC: What does GE want for all the money$$$ it gave the City of Milwaukee School System?

No more Nuclear Energy or Corporate “Ownership” of government services in Wisconsin!

Vote Kathleen Falk for a bullshit free Wisconsin!

verb-al

A student loan debt of $30-40,000 for a person without means (which should be no more than 10% of actual income) is much more debilitating than Republicans pretend.

I repeat, this is not a test...

test case #1: reinforce banking institutions, make small stimulative infusions into economic system, but encounter political roadblocks to cost controls from vested private interests. Result: sluggish recovery.

Man Woman Relations...

As comments on another blog I suggested these web sites (below) to Zenzoe but maybe the subject deserves a blog of its own. Here are the web page addresses if you’d like to read them:

Casualties of American War Making Since WWll

Now that more than a half century has past since "the big one," we can look back and ask how many people, how many villages, how many communities, neighborhoods, how many little shops, and stores, and schools have the military and policy makers of the United States of America destroyed since "the big one" that came after "the war to end all wars." The numbers matter because so few are familiar with them, there is so much denial, the obsession with our own casualties during the same period, and the numbers can give a sense of the scale of our war making machine.

Conservatives supposedly hate freeloading. So why are they trying to legalize it?

Conservatives supposedly hate freeloaders.

So why do they support right to work laws - which literally legalize freeloading?

Our nation's nine unelected monarchs on the Supreme Court are poised to deal yet another blow to organized labor.
