NY Times Has Alarming Report On National Debt But

On the front page of the New York Times today (8/4/2011) I read an article by Binyamin Appelbaum entitled “Spending Cuts Seen as Step, Not as Cure”. For me this proves we need to have a “Public Option” not simply because we Progressives like that politically but for the good of the nation’s economy! When […]

Obama's Approval Rating: Can An Ostrich Fly?

When will Obama learn that bi-partisanship is nonsense! President Obama’s approval rating is dropping like a stone in water. What happened to that great orator we elected? The way the Republicans where whining when Barrack Obama was elected I thought by now the Republicans would be slitting their wrists in our new Socialist Motherland! But […]

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 […]

#HCR: Obama Great Victory?

Please explain to me why we had to wait till now for this watered down law? Obama wanted to have a Kumbaya rapport with Republicans in his stupid quest for bipartisanship!  Who the hell cares about bipartisanship?  We won the elections they lost! What’s the problem with that? I hope we liberals have won with […]

Obama's Secret Plan To Rescue The Public Option

Many of us are very dis-enchanted with the current situation concerning Health Care Reform and the lack of the Public Option! I am happy to report we have an EXCLUSIVE speech by President Barrack Obama to rescue the Public Option! Finally “Change We Can Believe In”. Amazing isn’t it that after one year we Democrats […]

Stop Attacking Dennis Kucinich

I fully support Congressman Dennis Kucinich in his opposition to the Health Care Bill as it now stands without a strong public option. While Obama was cow towing to closet Republican Joe Lieberman  he should have been paying attention to the people who elected him not the likes of Joe Lieberman who supported John McCain. […]

Top Ten Reasons Republicans Get Away With The Filibuster

Actually it started before Barrack Obama became President. Democrats have been playing their favorite party game of “masochism”! We had a majority in the House of Representatives and Nancy Pelosi did not use her constitutional mandate to end the financing of the Iraq War. This allowed Republicans to see that most Democrats don’t have the […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Nidal Hassan: How Both Conservatives And Liberals Failed Our Troops

This Social Democrat Liberal blogger is willing to follow the truth wherever it may lead. I ask my fellow progressives to divest themselves of knee jerk reactions. I urge this as an American first and as a Social Democrat second. I have watched several Liberal commentators lament that Nidal Hassan was sending e-mails to a […]

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 […]

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 Is A National Security Requisite

After the stab in the back by the heatlh insurance companies that criticized the weak Health Care Bill that is floating in the Senate you would think our President would show some testosterone! Failure to do so could decrease the “Deterrence Creditability” Obama has as military Comander in Chief. That’s right President Obama must push […]

Republicans Stealing Democratic Talking Points

Republicans are stealing Democratic and Liberal talking points and President Obama is hardly doing anything about it. Republicans are talking self righteously about Wall Street being bailed out and placing the blame on Democrats! Sure we liberals are the friends of Wall Street! Health Care is now the next target! Make no mistake about it, […]

Class Warfare Against Obama And The Middle Class

The issue is not just Universal Health Care nor the increasing use of racist language against our President. The issue is the CLASS WARFARE being waged against the Middle Class by the effete snobs of privilege who want to keep Americans dependant upon them. Yes they do “use” racists but the issue of the rhetoric […]

Acorn Rejected But Not Halliburton

Frankly I am tired of these stories by Fox News concerning Acorn. I make no judgement one way or the other let the chips for where they may. My concern is why the same standard is not applied to Halliburton. After all it was a Halliburton subsidiary that has caused the deaths of many American […]

Obama vs Joe Wilson

Well after his attempt to turn the hallowed halls of Congress into a Town Hall Meeting, Congressman Joe Wilson will not apologize! In fact many in the media are blaming his reaction on racism! I believe it goes much further. Joe Wilson was attempting to emasculate the liberal message in the halls of Congress as […]

Corporate Contributions Underlying Health Care Issue

President Obama better learn this is not simply the “silly season” in politics but the “corporate funded season” to undermine him as President! Furthermore this is an act of class warfare against the Silent Majority who came out to vote for Obama and have real change! Why are the idiots who get bused to Anti-Health […]

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 […]

IDIOT ALERT: This Wednesday A Black Man Wants To Talk To Your Kids

Oh my God pull the kids from school! It’s worse than the swine flu! It’s the “PINK FLU” and it’s coming to your child’s school this Wednesday when President Barrack Hussein Obama will give a pep talk to our nation’s school children! The Obama school speech will turn little Johny into a raving tofu eating, […]
