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 […]

Obama Care: Why It Needs To Be Stronger

Within six months of Barrack Obama’s taking office I began to realize he did not have the fire in the belly to pursue President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s “Second Bill Of Rights“. But let us restrict our discussion in this article to his wimpy attempts at health care reform. The issue is not simply that Obama […]

GOP Against Free Market’s “Guiding Hand” If Issue Is Hillary Clinton Documentary

Recently the Republican Party big shots have announced they would bar CNN and NBC from the GOP primary debates if they aired a documentary on Hillary Clinton. Yet Republicans are the same people who preach the supremacy of so called  “free markets”! Let’s explore the hypocrisy of the so called free market by both Republicans […]

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“! […]

Romney: We Are Entitled To Dividends Of Gain From Your Pain

Mitt Romney’s recent statement is not being addressed aggressively enough by Barrack Obama! The issue is not simply that the 47% pay other taxes. The issue is that they work full time and yet do not earn enough to pay taxes or are retired on low incomes. The issue is when we as a nation […]

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 […]

So What The Individual Mandate Uses A Tax

Once again the Republicans are up to their old tricks and trying to “spin” the individual mandate ruling by the Supreme Court  to serve their political ends. The problem with all the political pundits is that the presumptions of the entire discussion are more involved. Taxes are not simply to raise revenue but a means […]

Bachmann And Cantor’s Hypocrisy On Job Creation

The next time your right wing friends want to lecture you about the “Job Creators” you might want to show them this clip below from the Rachel Maddow Show. It seems that our beloved Michele Bachmann actually believes that Government  does create jobs! In fact Tea Bag lady Michele Bachmann believes it so much that […]

“Rhetoric” And The Psychology Of Fighting The Right Wing

We Progressives need to up the rhetoric to compete with the Tea Party and their corporate patrons! We should not shy away from this terminology! Testosterone is called for to counter act the war on the middle class! This post category is devoted to the Psychology of fighting the right wing! You might call it […]

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 […]

GOP: Bankruptcy Is Good For States But Not Individuals

Republicans want to allow state governments to go bankrupt so they can destroy civil service unions! Strange isn’t it that they fought tooth and nail to make it harder for individuals to declare bankruptcy! Former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is leading the fight. There is a method to their madness. They want to […]

Does North Korea Believe Obama Is Weak?

President Obama has allowed two years of non-stop Republican bullying to go almost completely unanswered! Now we have to wonder has this wimpish behavior not only hurt the progressive agenda but may actually pose a security threat to the United States? North Korea is hell bent on developing nuclear weapons! They may have already! This […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Audacity Of Impotence – Charge Of The Castrati Brigade

Barrack Obama cared more about the support of Joe Lieberman and Ben Nelson then the progressive base that elected him. The Democrats could really show up the Republicans now by forcing a vote on the Middle Class Tax Cut but all we hear is their pathetic “MEOW”! Now we are supposed to save him and Harry Reid. […]

Christine O'Donnell Witchraft (UPDATE)

Sarah Palin’s fellow traveler, Christine O’Donnell has some more questions to answer. What I find amazing is that she said she was on a “satanic altar”. This is not a practice of the  positive religion of Wicca but some really dark scary stuff. Wiccans are not satanists! Except of course to Christian fundamentalists who do […]

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 […]

Obama's Health Care Speech

I wish the President came out more forcefully for a public option in his speech but none the less I am heartened that he dropped the “professor” style and came on more of a “pit bull”. In the excerpt below we see him attack the Republicans for their smear tactics. I believe he should have […]
