Anti-Liberal News Media Biases

I am fed up with the anti-liberal news media biases that I witness every day in the mainstream news media. Then the GOP has the audacity to say that we have a news media that is slanted to the left. What planet are they living on? Consider these two recent events. Recently Harry Reid attacked […]

The Issue Is Not How To Best Implement Austerity

Austerity is not the answer but an increase in aggregate demand will increase the employment in America and the tax base. For example, ¬†a factory has 1,000 employees. Then came 2008 and we had a crisis. The company had to eliminate 400 jobs. At it’s new reduced rate of employment the company was able to […]

NY Times Has Alarming Report On National Debt But

This has occurred right after the House pushed an even more extreme bill due to the power of the Tea Party. One has to wonder if Harry Reid were more forceful against his […]

Boehner’s Speech: We Need “Longevity Gains Tax”

John Boehner several years ago gave out campaign contributions to his fellow travelers from the Tobacco industry! Boehner did this on the floor of the House while the House was in the process of voting for the Tobacco industry subsidy. This from the man who talks about “Cut, Cap and Balance“! While millions of Americans […]
