Mitt Can't Relate

You know, Republicans would stand a chance if they could actually field an opponent worthy enough. Right now it's a toss up between a joke called Santorum (welcome to the 21st century buddy), and Mitt Romney who says he can relate to middle class America, but come on, who are we kidding, he'd never be caught dead in a minivan. So now what? American politics, despite existing around the same center policy wise, is fragmented by extremists who can't see clearly (and thus see either Romney or Santorum as legitimate contenders.) Republicans should be absolutely demolished so they can' start afresh without the stagnant weight of the old guard. Any party who doesn't quickly and vehemently oppose the likes of Rush Limbaugh doesn't deserve any votes.

Occupy Wall Street What?

I get it, the 99% rising up against the 1%. But it's more like the .005% occupying on behalf of the so-called 99% against the 1%. Yea, I know the problem, the wealthy are wealthy. But the fact is the bulk of the 99% would like to be wealthy too. Sure, we all say we'll live within our means, but once we get a taste for the alimghty dollar we're stuck on wanting more and more.

Let's be serious. OWS won't catch steam, it has no demands, no vision, no use. Well that's not true. THe best we can hope for is that it catalyzes all the middle and lower class bums who never vote or bother to learn how to upset the process in a real fashion that actually initiates change. Vote with your feet, vote, and vote with your dollars.

Of course that won't happen. Low income people don't care about politics , they only care about getting their junk from Walmart.

But things are changing, slowly. More unemployment and people on the streets will eventually tip. Not there yet, not by a long shot given the comfortable and apathetic nature of our country, but it'll tip.

Ron Paul and Military

I'll say it. We don't need to have half our tax dollars go to weaponry. We'd have to spend less if we weren't trying to take over the world.

I get the fact Iraq wasn't just about oil, it was about all the billions in loans to rebuild the country.

But do we really need to fatten the pockets of a dozen big hidden corporations? No.

Time to pull out and reduce. Spending on military is incredible. The problem we're in now, we've pissed off so many people and have asuch a debt problem that we're stuck. Like an addict we can't stop but expand the military and invade countries for their resources.

A bitter cycle that shows no chance of slowing down. After all, our desire for stuff--consumption--is outweighed by our willingness to have less.

Wake up on Healthcare

Some obvious facts

a) America spends more on guns and wars abroad than consumption for a growing lower class
b) the demographics in America are shifting so that the largest segment of baby boomers are starting to retire and with old age comes skyrocketing healthcare needs.
c) America has among the worst healthcare service for their own citizens in the developed world.

Sure if you do'nt get sick for long or if your'e a multi millionaire you're fine. The average joe is screwed.

That Washington Times articles continues to the stupidity behind Republican fear tactics around healthcare. So far the two primary arguments are a) it will cost more, b) it will take away your right to chose a doctor.

Uh, I'd like to have a doctor over no doctor any day idiots.

And yes, YES it will cost most in the short term and TENS of millions get healthcare coverage they never would under any other circumstances.

So read the entire article, note that the plan doesn't sound so bad, and also do your part to educate your foolish friends that unless we change our ways soon we'll be further down the dumpster, and really sick as well.

Stupid Republicans

The economic stupidity continues. Check out this editorial:

Yes, They think you're stupid

In the recent budget fiasco Obama taunted Republicans asking whether they thought whether, "you hink we're stupid?"

House Republican leaders struggled to sell their spending agreement. The President is of course challenging leaders while simultaneously eeking out support.

Just a quick not Mr President.


Yes, Republicans, probably all, think you're stupid. And the ones that doesn't now think you are cause you've played the name calling game.

New Plame Indictments?

Jason Leopold has the inside scoop.

And whaddaya know: Rove has been singing like a canary and fingering Cheney. Steve Clemons has confirmed it.

Does Rove's cooperation mean that Fitzgerald may broaden the investigation and later charge Cheney? Rice? Bush? Will the recently retrieved 250 or so emails offer Libby, and maybe Rove later, a defense against obstruction, lying and perjury charges on the basis that they were just following orders? Hmmm, I wonder in what other ways Rove and Libby, Hadley, et al, might be cooperating with Fitzgerald?
