You can become part of the 1% in 2013… BIG TIME...

.... by investing as little as $100,000 today, that’s less than the cost of the two Caddys Mittens purchased for his wife, you can reap tens of millions of dollars in stock dividends starting in 2013.

Why Do You Have Children? aka Why Have Children?

I've deleted my original blog "Why Have Children" because I didn't make clear that I would like courageous, candid, frank, direct answers to the question: "Why do you have children." Down near the bottom of this blog you'll find some answers, some pseudo-answers, even some responses that aren't really answers at all.

this is funny

Comment from nimblecivet...

I think the parent-child relationship is the one with the most potential intimacy. I think people sense this intuitively even if they do not actualize it.

An Educational Model for Progress

A Capital Idea Part 117: An Educational Model for Progress

Education, broadly speaking, is the imparting of impartial information and ideas to people. It includes formal education, learning how to do one's job from other workers, media news insofar as it is true and unbiased, and people sharing information and ideas over the internet. As with health care, affordable education should be a right, not a privilege.

Against Citizens United


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.


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.


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.


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.
