Conservative Capitalism vs real free enterprise

hi tom. want to mention when CONservatives talk about capitalism they use it interchangeably with free enterprise. its a way they use to fool people that both are the same thing when they are really not. They do this because all they are really doing is protecting and advancing monopolies. as long as free markets are available things go great for the consumer with competition. Unfortunately many fall into the trap of debating issues along the lines that conservatives have defined rather than calling them out on the misnomers they are using.

Gov Chris Chrispy Kreme of New Jersey comes to WI to help Walker survive recall.

(Wisconsin is knee deep in crazies)

Jackson Browne

Thom, the words you spoke at the beginning of your conversation with JB were so beautiful and articulate. He is my heart and #1 all-time favorite. Hours and hours and hours..... Thank you for such a nice surprise!

4,000,000 Deaths in US Wars Since WWll

The death toll from wars the United States has carried out since WWll is more than 4,000,000. The importance of this number is to demonstrate on what scale the United States has waged war. This number is a conservative number. To come up with a number of the total dead from U.S. wars since WWll, is a way of grasping the destructive consequences of all this war making.

bin laden assassination

On the anniversary of Bin Laden's aasassination, let us remember why he was assassinated. The trial of Bin Laden would have revealed the true perpetrators, or at least the fact that Bin Laden had nothing or very little to do with 9-11. Why do the American public not demand a full accounting of what happened that fatefull day? Why do the American public run headlong with their leaders to invade other countries and kill thousands of innocent people based on obvious lies, half truths and deception?

Just for Thom (and other people who care)

Rachel Maddow Was Great on Sunday, and so was Hillary Rosen, on Meet The Press!

Rachel Maddow handed Republican consultant Alex Costelannos his head (figuratively speaking) with his condescension regarding the point she was making. If you haven't had a chance to see it, go to http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2012/05/01/dont-worry-your-pretty-little-head-darlin/.

This is for Louise and everyone else

To someone who had Ovarian cancer at 19, where my entire reproductive system was removed, and caught in time, I like to say Louise, my thoughts daily-morning and evening prayers will be with me for now on and everyone else who is sick too. God Bless. Let me know if you are and I will be praying for you too and your family.

Social Security INSURANCE. Thom so distorts the truth...

Thom just spent minutes lecturing a caller about how SS is insurance and not a "retirement plan." At the same time, Thom and Bernie Sanders will talk until they're blue in the face about how the cap on SS earnings should be lifted above $110,100 (and allowed to float upwards) BUT neither will address whether or not the future benefits should be allowed to "float" upwards using the same existing formula that is in place today... http://www.ssa.gov/pubs/10070.html . What a hypocrit.

Double Dribble or Intentional Foul?

Just yesterday I intercepted a letter from God the Father (there are no secrets on Internet these days). Here it is, in part but without its original red letters:

Obama’s EPA$$$: Official who said EPA should “crucify” polluters forced to resign.

The worst environmental President E - V - E - R!

Obama had better not need to come a knocking on my thunder dome! oh hell no!

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.
