Obama Resigns Bully Pulpit While Koch Dark Money Flows

Cenk Uygur wrote a post in the Huffington Post, “What Has Obama Done For You Lately“? In his article he correctly assails the President for not being a Progressive and abandoning his base. I agree with Cenk Uygur. I would like to add more details. We had control of both Houses of Congress for the […]

Talking Point: How Organized Money Corrupts Democracy Pt 2

In this article let’s examine how organized money is corrupting our democracy on the corporate level. A democracy is defined by the rule of “one person – one vote”. The market place is defined by the rule of “one dollar – one vote”! Both of these meme’s are in analogous positions to the Twin Spirits […]

Talking Point: How Organized Money Corrupts Democracy Pt 1

I would like to present some talking points you can use with friends and family concerning the “separation of corporation and state”. We might actually think of this as two issues: The problem of individual big donors throwing corrupting the decision making processes of a democratic society and The problem of corporations corrupting the decision […]

Senator Elizabeth Warren Calls Out CUT AND RUN Corporations

I am an unapologetic Social Democrat to the left of Barrack Obama. I applaud Senator Elizabeth Warren‘s recent attack (see video below) on these CUT AND RUN CORPORATIONS who have no loyalty to the nation that gave them birth, protection, incorporation and profits! I urge Progressives to utilize the rhetorical devices of the right wing […]

Barack Obama: The Legacy Of A Wimp

We are hearing calls to rally the Democratic Party vote for this November because the Republicans might take the Senate.  Maybe if Barrack Obama had not turned his back on the Progressive  base of the Democratic Party  we would not be in this situation today! Due to President Obama’s fixation with keeping his face up […]

American Economy Slips To China But Stock Market Highest Ever

The Wall Street Journal has reported that the stock market hit the highest point it has ever hit in history! So where are the jobs? They are in China, India and Singapore. Yes the last employment report had a slightly better unemployment rate but that is because a large number have given up looking for […]

McCutcheon Ruling: No Obama This Is More Than SILLY SEASON At SCOTUS

The recent Supreme Court McCutcheon ruling shows American democracy is growing soft. The Silent Majority have been put to sleep by the corporate news-media! We as a nation have looked the other way for far to long as the economic royalists have corrupted the decision making process of our society. The time has come for […]

Progressive Talking Points #2: What Ever Happened To The Term “Liberal”?

The term “liberal” has become a causality of the psychological warfare that Republicans have waged on the left. Recently Bill Moyers did a show concerning the surrender of American liberals. We have to admit there is very little voice for the progressive Agenda in America. Part of the reason is that Democrats are playing make […]

Progressive Talking Points: Income Inequality pt1

Barrack Obama is finally starting to talk about income inequality. That is when he is not devoting his time to Machiavellian machinations in support of a fast track for TPP or his pathetic dream of a “grand compromise” that undermines the work of FDR. But Obama aside in this series of posts I want to […]

TPP: Cut And Run Corporations Sing Globalization Internationale

The CUT AND RUN CAPITALISTS are singing their “Globalization Internationalie” while Barrack Obama has become their enabler and patron. Ross Perot said that NAFTA would cause a huge “sucking sound” as American jobs would be extracted out of America to benefit the few! Because of this job extraction we are living in an era where […]

Corporate Collectivists Whine About Entitlement

Have you ever wondered, as I have, why does our society continue to permit the rich to place our nation at risk with their bizarre casino game  called  “derivatives“? Our nation is still at the mercy of these effete snobs of privilege and their grandiose sense of entitlement to use our bank savings, pension funds […]

The Joys Of Competition In The Service Of The Corporate Collectivists

I am tired of the cliche of the “Joy of Competition” from those who want to undermine individual freedom at the profit of corporate power. We see this “celebration of the subjugation of individuality to the corporate collective” each time an unsuspecting young person leaves college and goes for a job interview.  I will be […]

Opportunity To Separate Corporation And State

In this article I will propose a constitutional amendment for the separation of corporation and state. Furthermore I believe we have a window of opportunity here to enlist mainstream Republicans. Below John McCain aruges that both political parties are disappearing in the face of Super-PACS As wacky as the recent Tea Party hissy fit government […]

Obama Is Playing Make Believe Liberal In The Corporate Sandbox

President Obama is advancing some gun control ideas along with immigration reform. But as my favorite TV commentator Cenk Uygur has pointed out that these issues, while important are not as important as jobs and keeping money out of politics. I will add that if Obama where to launch a national crusade to keep corporate money out […]

Drones: Right Wing And Left Wing Hysteria

The Obama Administration has now seemingly gone to the right of even George Bush on the issue of drones. Last summer I took a taxi and was forced to listen to the FoxNews watching, right wing taxi driver! This Sarah Palinite went on and on how Barrack Obama was going to use drones to target […]

Gun Control: Some Questions For Both Sides

As a progressive Social Democrat I would like to inject some questions into the issue of gun control. This article is going to be unlike most you have read from the left or the right. The news media is now covering former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and her husband testifying before Congress. I was surprised to hear both testify that […]

Hooray Obama Won: But Did Progressives?

As I mentioned in my last post I am PROUD that I did NOT vote for Obama but instead for Dr. Jill Stein the Green Party presidential candidate. Wow Obama won! Mark my words when Barrack Obama goes on his “apology tour to the Tea Party” and attempts to create a “grand compromise” that will […]

Florida Wages War On Voters: Where Is Obama – MEOW

Obama’s refusal to defend the voters in Florida is my last straw! I said several weeks ago that I would vote for Obama but I retract that. I am voting Green! As a Progressive I am sick and tired of making excuses for Barrack Obama! I refuse to get caught up in the “Drama of Obama“! […]

Super-PACS: Taxation Without Representation

“Mother Jones” magazine like many Democrats and Progressives have warned us that Super-PACS could be the means by which foreign corporations could play a behind the scene roles in the political affairs of our government. I believe we face a far more insidious threat to our democracy and way of life by corporations that force us to contribute […]

Time For Islam To Grow Past It’s Leviticus Stage

Forget the Obama – Romney conflict for one moment. Amazing isn’t that when we liberals talk about the bigots at the West Boro Baptist Church who are anti-Gay we condemn them, as well they should be. But I have never heard of any hangings at West Boro Baptist Church nor I have heard of any one being […]

Obama Fails In Psychological Warfare Against Republicans

Question dear reader: Why has the word “stimulus” wrongfully been made a bad word today? That is because the Republicans have won the war of creating definitions! The issue is not merely laws passed but the definitions of problems in the public’s mind. Laws passed are simply the results of the prior war being waged […]

Obama Is A Bystander In Oval Office: No He Is A Wimp

I waited before I wrote about this as i am a Progressive. But I have to agree with Gov. Chris Christie that Obama is indeed a bystander in the White House. As a member of the 99% I urge my fellow Progressives not to get caught up in defending Obama when a right wing nut […]

American Jobs Act And The Longevity Gains Tax

President Franklin D Roosevelt said that “necessitous men are not free men“!  That is why even those that have a job today are not “free men”. Because the specter of unemployment is constantly in front us! This puts management in the driver’s seat while the Republicans whine ever onward about “Freedom”! Make no mistake about […]

Trickle Down Identity Meme: Subjugation Of The Middle Class

The issue we face today is not simply “trickle down economics” but rather a virus of the soul called “trickle down identity”. In this post I would like to introduce my readers to a psychological and sociological theory concerning  “memes”! This has enormous implications concerning politics. Sometimes memes are called schema or scripts. I will be […]

Job Creators Fail To Provide Decent Jobs

The Republicans are on a new crusade this time. No it’s not to send your kids to fight in Iraq looking for nonexistent WMD while Al Qaeda was over in Afghanistan profiting from the high production of opium crops! This time the Republicans are whining that to many Americans don’t pay income tax just because […]
