Eric Holder: The Reason Robert Rubin Isn’t Behind Bars

When I think back to the crazy time of 2008 when it seemed as if suddenly the economic world was imploding, I do remember thinking that we should let the house of cards fall and rebuild the whole thing over. However seeing how Hank Paulson and Tim Geithner came together and worked over the Wall […]

Bernie Sanders: Longterm Democratic Strategy Is ‘Pathetic’

I love Senator Bernie Sanders, absolutely love him. He is fiery, courageous and so very well informed. What I found most interesting in his interview is his take on the lack of voter participation, primarily due to political ignorance and naivete. Moreover most of us don’t have the time or the resources to do our […]

Boehner: ‘I’d Bring The Congress Back’ If Obama Asks For War Authorization

I believe that Boehner should have kept the House in session, Reid should have done likewise with the Senate, I realize that our President hasn’t asked for a resolution, but that doesn’t negate the need for our legislative branch to debate and examine what future concerns this course of action will have for our nation. […]

Students Protesting Conservative Rewrite Of History Get Their Most Important Endorsement Yet

The Louis Powell memo of 1973 was very specific in its recommendations and strategies towards repositioning the conservative republican party in a momentum of ascendence in American society and education across the board was a key prong in achieving that goal. He argued that conservatives needed to infiltrate the media, implement think tanks (think the […]

Kansas Is So Broke That It Has To Auction Off Sex Toys

We didn’t have to wait until 2012 to see if tax cuts grew economies, Mister Laffer already showed us, when he was with former President Reagan that it didn’t work. If we look back to President Reagan and Mister Laffer’s grand experiment, we see that congress was obliged to raise taxes because the Laffer curve […]

Calm Settles On Washington As U.S. Bombs Syria

Our congress is eschewing its constitutional duties and Senator Kaine is correct in his assessment, that the legislative branch is doing itself harm by not being in session to debate and take part in the war strategies. First and foremost congress needs to repeal the AUMF act of 2001; repeal it and put it away […]

Obama U.N. Speech Will Include New Executive Order On Climate And International Development

I hope that the President has reworked his speech to ackowledge the powerful turnout that the People’s Climate March had on Sunday, 400K showed up to show solidarity for our planet and each other, that is huge. Moreover; over 3000 protestors gathered on Wall Street for FloodWallStreet to send the message that capitalism is a […]

Why Ordinary People Bear Economic Risks and Donald Trump Doesn’t

Donald Trump was the first to say that the doctors who had been infected with Ebola due to the courageous and selfless dedication to treat those poor victims in Western Africa have to suffer the consequences when he learned that they were being flown home for treatment. Yet when it comes to facing the consequences […]

John Boehner Is Done Being Nice About The Unemployed

Boehner is a coward, waiting until the unemployment rate falls sufficiently enough to where he thinks that his words can’t offend anyone of value, at least that is what appears to be his thinking in my opinion. As I see from many of the previous comments, people are laughing at him, calling out the irony […]

Climate Change You Can Believe In

Thank goodness we have courageous people who are passionate about saving us as a species; Naomi Klein, Bill McKidden, Sam Sutter and so many others. Whenever I hear Republican Party lawmakers speak about how irresponsible it is for us as a nation to saddle our children and our grandchildren with federal debt simply because progressives […]
