To Big To Fail: Time To Break Up The Banks

I believe the Democratic Bill is still to weak! We need to break up the big banks. While I like the “Young Turks” (See video below) I question how the banks are going to raise the money for payments into the new  Insurance Fund! We know that the money is going to come from higher […]

Time To End Outrageous CEO Compensation

I am fed up with hearing this krap about our social betters taking risks and hence “deserving” such ridiculous rates of compensation. No I am not against people saving and investing to latter become millionaires! I am talking about the parasites of our society who never earned their millions but inherited millions or who earn […]

Democrats Have To Be More Aggressive

Wow Obama actually spoke up! Big deal he wasted an entire year being “Super Wimp”! Republicans know how to go on the offensive and it is about time that Democrats learn to do the same! As I mentioned in my prior post, some conservatives are talking about gaining control of the House so they can […]

Republican’s Definition Of “Freedom” And It’s Danger To the Middle Class

When I hear Republicans talk about “freedom” I need to take a Rolaids because my stomach turns acidic. Tim Palenty used this terminology at a recent meeting of the conservative group CPAC! Actually this is classic Republican rhetoric!  The “Freedom” that they so prize is not freedom for the American Middle Class! In this era […]

Senator Judd Gregg Versus The Middle Class

I heard a segment of Senator Judd Gregg’s interview on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell show. He laid out some plans to punish people who are overweight and engage in unhealthy behaviors in terms of health insurance costs. I guess he would support the removal of Trans-fatty acids in fast foods! After all when hard pressed and […]

California Insurance Costs Skyrocket – It’s Called Freedom

First a question for Republicans! How is all that Corporate Free Marketie de-regulation thingy working out for ya! Huh?  (Wink). When will Americans ever learn that a decrease in Government Regulation does not translate into an increase in individual freedom! Instead a vacuum is created for the bully to take away the freedom of individual […]

Base To Obama: Stop Listening To Republicans And Start Lecturing

My advice to Obama is the opposite of what Sarah Palin said at the Tea Party convention! I have had enough of Obama trying to get the Republicans to come on board. We won they lost – REMEMBER! I am sick of letting Joe Liebermann and his fellow travelers, the blue dog Democrats destroy the […]

Obama's Speech Is A Start But Not Aggressive Enough

Frankly I am feed up with Democrats being so airy faery when it comes to taking on Republicans. Can you imagine that the Republicans were actually stealing the issue of being middle class defenders against big corporations and Wall Street?

Supreme Court Rules – Power To The Bullies

Today the Supreme Court ruled that corporations can engage in “Taxation Without Representation” by unrestricted funding of political ads for or against candidates and issues of their choice! Guess where their funding is going to come from? It is bad enough that these effete snobs of privilege earn more in one day then many earn […]

Massachusetts: Yo Obama It's Your Fault

Americans love “action figures”. George Bush Jr. did not even have a majority when the College of Electors  gave him the presidency in the 2000 election. Gore had the popular vote regardless of Florida. But Bush became an “action figure” when the issue was terrorism. So what he invaded the wrong country, Iraq! Americans love […]

Massachusetts – Charge Of The Castrati Brigade

I disagree with The Huffington Post that a loss in Massachusetts is the loss of Universal Health Care! In fact as a Progressive Social Democrat I welcome it! When I heard the recent predictions I was actually laughing since this is the pathetic  result of fighting the “Party of No” by being the “Party of […]

The Audacity Of Impotence

Following in that great martial tradition laid down by Nancy Pelosi, who had two years control of the House even before Barrack Obama became President but was to impotent to impeach George Bush or defund the war, our new President joins with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid in our Democratic Party’s new “Change We Can […]

Separation Of Corporation And State

When is the American middle class going to wake up and demand the separation of corporation and state! We must address this issue before the health care issue. The problems passing real health care reform are mere symptoms of the underlying disease that is infecting the “decision making processes” of our society! That disease is […]

Starter House But Insurance Cartel Owns The Mortgage

This bill is to weak and requires audacity to hope that rates will not skyrocket due to insurance company greed. I am afraid I cannot go along with Senator Harkins analogy that the Senate Bill is a “starter house not a mansion but we have to start somewhere!” I must number myself among the “Democrats […]

Senator Ben Nelson Blue Dog Hypocrite

Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson is a damned hypocrite who helped kill real Health Care Reform. He whines against both abortion and government “socialism”. That is why he was against the public option! Yet he has jumped on board to give the 60th vote in the Senate in return for unique “Socialist Medicaid” concessions to his state […]

Kill The Bill

I believe Howard Dean is correct! This Health Care Bill is so weak that it does not deserve to pass. In the video below you will hear President Obama followed by Howard Dean. The President just does not seem to get it. He believes that the issue here is “The perfect is the enemy of […]

Joe Liebermann Saves Tiger Woods From Corporate Defections

Image via Wikipedia Tiger Woods who seems to have more woman than Bill Clinton had cigars was about to loose almost every corporate sponsor he had! Well that was the case until today when Senator Joe Liebermann became the man of the hour and decided to help Tiger Woods keep his corporate sponsors. It will […]

Democrats Letting Republicans Define Health Care Issue

I wish President Obama could be as determined on the issue of Health Care “change that we can believe in” as he is in fighting the war in Afghanistan! But then again look at his limp responses to: Creating jobs. Stimulating the economy especially in Green Technology and Infrastructure. Regulating the Credit Card industry so the […]

Time For Liberals To Be Aggressive

Big deal we got 60 votes to “talk” about Health Care Reform. When you listen to Republican Senator Judd Gregg you can hear the Republican strategy being exposed which the Democrats are not countering! Oh dear we don’t want to be “partisan” now do we? Well I do! If you listen closely you can hear […]

Democratic Base Was SNOWED IN – Time For Liberal Tea Party

The Progressive base of the Democratic Party stayed home since we have been “Snowed” in. President Obama, in his quest for bipartisanship, has climbed MT Olympus to find that the “Snow(e)” is slippery and has driven the Democratic base to stay home. Then again President Obama stood by while the Maine Gay Marriage Act was […]

Without A Strong Public Option Progressives Should Filibuster

The Health Care Bill with a weak or no Public Option is an exercise in Democratic Party masochism! With the number of restrictions being placed on the Public Option it is being set up to bring both Universal Health Care and the liberal movement down! Since only a few will be allowed to take the […]

Party Of No Vs Party Of Meow

To hell with Joe Lieberman, we need a single payer Universal Health Care system financed by the repeal of both the Bush and Reagan tax cuts to the super rich. My God you would think that these people actually earn their money the way they whine. While the Republican Party has turned into the “party […]

Just Say “NO” To Snowe And The Party Of No

The Democrats In Congress And Obama do not need Swine Flu shots. They need TESTOSTERONE shots! Sure they can learn from the Republicans on how to be the minority party of no! To bad the Democrats did not function as the “party of NO” while the Iraq War was waging and we had control of […]

The Public Option And Corporate Power: One Dollar – One Vote

The Public Option does not stand a chance! Not because the American people don’t want it but because of the power of Corporate Lobbyists! Where are the “Tea Baggers” with their pompous slogans of “No Taxation Without Representation”? We Middle Class Americans are being taxed by these corporations to support their self interest against our […]

Republicans Against America

The Republicans were so happy when our nation lost it’s bid for the 2016 Olympics. (See video below). They even rejoiced saying Barrack Obama had lost his charisma! But their glee was short lived when our President received the Nobel Prize for Peace! You would think they would stand behind our President especially in this […]
