Hillary Clinton Is Backed by Major Republican Donors

Hillary Clinton’s rhetoric is liberal, but her actual actions in politics have been conservative, except for her nominal support for liberal initiatives that attracted even some Republican support, or else that the Senate vote-co

Tim Kaine Calls To Deregulate Banks As He Campaigns To Be Clinton’s VP

Who needs consumer protections when we have all these job creators?

When did democrats become the party of useful idiots

We have criticized gop voter for years for voting against their own self interest , because of god guns and race.

Well they are still voting for god, guns and race, but at least this time they are voting for a candidate that is in their own financial self interest.

Well this election dems are also voting on god , guns and race, but this time dems are the ones voting against their own financial self interest.

Well it looks like we have become the party of the useful idiots for wallstreet.

Is Kaine able?

People ask me about this place. Lethargic, I say.

What day do you pick to dump your bad news?

Firday of course, and if it is really horse shit, do it late Friday night.

"Hillary Clinton Selects Tim Kaine, a Popular Senator From a Swing State, as Running Mate"

Hillary’s VP Choice Will Show If “Unity” Talk Is Just Hot Air

When he introduced Christian conservative Mike Pence as his running-mate on Saturday, Donald Trump made a point of acknowledging that “party unity” was a reason for his choice. Pence, who’d endorsed Trump’s main rival, “Lyin’ Ted Cruz,” is beloved by the Republican Party’s loyal base of religious and free-market fundamentalists – which includes many Republican voters and activists still wary of Trump.

No More Talk910?

When I played the SF Bay Area Talk910 Clear Channel station this morning I got a Spanish show. So I checked broadcast and same thing. Check the website and got KFBK web site instead. Then we have this tweet from Gil Gross who hosted from 10-2 weekdays and had been in Cleveland for the convention and I suspect planned to stay back east to report from Philly.

Good as Goldman: Hillary and Wall Street

Nothing seems to rattle Hillary Clinton quite so much as pointed questions about her personal finances. How much she’s made. How she made it. Where it all came from.

Reefer Madness! Medical Marijuana is Already Saving $165M Per Year for Medicare

This news will give anti-marijuana crusaders fits.

A new study in the journal Health Affairs looked in great detail at prescription drug usage in U.S. states that have legalized medical marijuana. Researchers Ashley Bradford and David Bradford collected Medicare data for the period 2010-2013 to answer two questions: are patients choosing marijuana instead of prescription drugs for conditions that marijuana might treat, and what has been the overall effect on Medicare spending?

Trump Out-Flanks Dems on Trade and Economic Populism

I can't believe that the Dems have allowed themselves to be out-flanked on Trade and Economic Populism.


Next week is the Democratic National Convention. Whether they know it or not, the DNC needs your feedback on what to talk about during those four nights of primetime TV.

Personally, I believe speakers at the convention will be focusing on issues that 90% of the voters in key swing states, like Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania, just don't care about.

Ted Cruz is a true American hero.

As much as I despise Ted Cruz and the Republican party in general, what Cruz did last night at the GOP convention was nothing short of heroic. Any Democratic operative can go on TV and call Trump an idiot. There is nothing heroic about that.

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.
