Occupy Wall Street Protesters Vs. Corpocrats

The Democratic Party now has to make up it’s mind! Do they want to continue to “play” progressive inside the money lined confines of the corporate sandbox or are they willing to stand up for values! Recently while driving with my some of my family who are Republicans we went under a bridge where a makeshift banner […]

Right Wing Fears #Occupy Wall Street Movement

I agree with the “Huffington Post” writer Lincoln Mitchell that the Occupy Wall Street movement is not a moment to soon! Every day the patriots of the Occupy Wall Street movement are undermining the whiny self righteousness of the so called Tea Party movement. I am sick of the Tea Party and their self indulgence […]

Serving Our Social Betters: “Longevity Gains Tax” GOP Answer

As we face attacks on Social Security, Medicare, off shoring of American blue collar AND white collar jobs it is time  for Democrats to get some testosterone and fight back! For too long our nation has allowed certain assumptions to pass without being challenged! When someone receives millions in compensation per year and the President […]

Go Bernie Go

Senator Bernie Sanders has given a rousing call to action to defend our nation and the “freedom of the individual” in this epic struggle against the vile forces of corporate collectivism and the subservience of the democratic political institutions of our nation to the forces of Organized Money! The question is why isn’t our beloved […]

Wall Street Jounal: Consumer Debt Killing Economy

Monday’s Wall Street Journal headline says that consumer debt is stopping the economy! But that could only be a factor if consumer spending and “aggregate demand” where the prime movers in our economy not the “Job Creators” that the Republicans talk about! When Wall Street points their finger at consumers and their credit card debts […]

Robert Reich Atttacks Right Wing Bullies

Robert Reich wrote an excellent post in AlterNet concerning how Obama is granting the Tea Party folks legitimacy by being proud of making spending cuts when we should be increasing public sector spending. In a recession that is the only way to increase “aggregate demand”! But I fear Robert Reich and many Progressives just don’t […]

Vermont: Single Payer Vs. The Ryan Plan

With all the right wing nonsense going on in Washington DC and Obama leading the charge of the “Castrati Brigade” to make ever more concessions, one hopeful piece of news is that Vermont’s House passed a bill to give that state Universal Health Care under a Single Payer System! We need Vermont’s Senator Bernie Sanders […]

Hole Rips Open Plane: Deregulation Anyone?

With Republicans trying to cut the funding of regulatory agencies perhaps you might want to consider the real cost the next time you fly in a plane! I don’t want to rely on Ann Rand’s market self-regulation to get me safely to my destination. The Republicans and their Tea Party fellow travelers place profits over […]

American Exceptionalism: GOP Playing Patriot While Screwing America

Two Years ago President Obama, in a primary debate, put down the other contestants by saying “their ideas were mere replays of late night discussions in the college dormitories of the 1960’s”. Well I was in those late night dorm discussions and it is to bad Obama wasn’t around then because he would recognize the […]

Dump The Wimp Obama In The Primary

I hope Senator Bernie Sanders or Howard Dean will announce a primary challenge to Obama. My preference is for a Sanders/Dean ticket. But regardless the time has come. Barrack Obama’s worldview does not include the testosterone of wheel chair restricted Franklin Delano Roosevelt! President Obama does not have the guts to go to the American people, as […]

Imagine Barrack Obama In A Hostage Situation

If you want to kill “Change We Can Believe In” then continue to support Barrack Obama and his “Audacity Of Impotency”! Did you hear his justification for giving the wealthy top 2% a continuation of their tax breaks? Obama said that in a hostage situation you don’t want to give in! But in this case Obama […]

Stop Excusing Obama For Betraying The Base

As a Progressive I am fed up with Barrack Obama. President Obama is going to support an extension of the Bush Tax Cuts to the rich when we should be going back to the days of Dwight Eisenhower when we had a progressive income tax of 91%. The right wing was screaming that Barrack Obama was […]

Rush Limbaugh: Poor Should Not Vote

President Franklin D Roosevelt said “necessitous men are not free men”! President Roosevelt advocated a “Second Bill Of Rights” to the Constitution that would guarantee citizens the right to gainful employment! Today unemployment rose to 9.8%. That means at least 9.8% of Americans are not free! That does not include those who are working substitute jobs […]

Howard Dean And Denis Kucinich Point To Obama

The time is now coming when Democrats and Progressives are just getting tired of President Obama and his Audacity of Impotence! This is not the “Change We Can Believe In” that drew us to the polls! Recently on two separate Talk Shows both Howard Dean and Dennis Kucinich stated that Obama had better wake up […]

Obama's Idealism: Presidential Asset Or Liability

I understand where President Obama is coming from! I just wish he would recognize he is facing Republicans not fellow Democrats. This is not “silly season in politics” when right wingers, in their arrogance of self entitlement, talk about second amendment solutions! Nor when the Texas Governor hints at secession! But then again we had […]

Usury And The Serfing Of The Middle Class

The stock market makes money, when they are not gambling in hedge funds, by corporations producing goods and services! These must be purchased by consumers! The combined total energy of the economy to meet a need is called it’s “aggregate demand”. Since the consumer has has not purchased enough we have the government stimulus package. Sufficient aggregate demand is what […]

Rachel Maddow Says Fight But Is Pelosi A Figher?

Should Democrats act more like Republicans? Is that the lesson of the recent election? Well let’s answer that with “Boehner speak”! “Hell NO!” With that logic in 2006 the Republicans should have just rolled over since Democrats took the House. In 2008 we had possession not only of the House but the Senate by a whopping […]

Senate Holds Prayer Vigil To Block Republican Tsunami

In the ancient days of Rome the Senate would pray at the Temple of Janis. Today the entire Democratic Party members of Congress where lead by President Barrack Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi (The Troika of Impotence) as they worshiped at the Temple Of Joe Lieberman’s Ass located on Washington DC’s K-Street! President Barrack […]

MoveOn.Org Needs To Turn The Page On Obama

I am a member of MoveOn.Org and believe in the Progressive Agenda for America. However I strongly disagree with MoveOn.Org in their attempt to support non-progressive Democrats in the fall election. I will not vote to re-elect my Democratic Congressman as he did not support the public option nor the watered down Health Care Reform Law. […]

More Evidence Obama Goes Wimpy

In the wake of a Republican take over of the Senate and/or House, President Obama has plans to reduce the deficit. Fine but what about jobs! When the issue is jobs then the deficit has to take a back seat. This is the same nonsense that Herbert Hoover tried to sell the American people while […]

Nancy Pelosi Talks About Plutocracy

Nancy Pelosi just does not get it! Because of her wimpy behavior in fighting the Republicans our nation is now in the hands of the Economic Royalists that FDR warned us about years ago! Below is a clip of her recent interview on “Countdown With Keith Olbermann “. She talks about nobly defending the Middle Class against […]

President Obama Smeared As "Angel Of Death"

Once again President Obama is being smeared by the right wing. This time as the “Angel of Death” in a Republican ad. For over 18 months this nation has had to endure the degradation of our political processes by these idiots on the right wing. But let me be clear what I find even more […]

Bernie Sanders Or Howard Dean In 2012

The time has come for “Change We Can Believe In”! President Obama has the audacity to attack the base that elected him when he spent the last 18 months kissing Joe Lieberman, Ben Nelson and Blanche Lincoln’s butts! So how is that working out for you Mr. President? Joe Lieberman even campaigned against Obama in the […]

Ed Schultz Doesn't Realize Why Base Is Mad

Below is a video featuring Ed Schultz. He is pushing for Democrats to come out and support Democrats in the House and Senate. I like Ed Schultz but he just does not get it. Why should progressives support candidates who don’t stand for “Change We Can Believe In”. Ok what can happen if the Republicans […]

Howard Dean For White House Chief Of Staff

President Obama  needs some better advice. How about Howard Dean as the new White House Chief of Staff? President Obama seems to be doing some White House cleaning. His economic team is changing and none to soon. I could not agree more with the woman who addressed President Obama at a recent town hall meeting. […]
