Roosevelt grew the government to create jobs because the public sector wasn’t doing it. He raised taxes on corporations to help pay for that. Obama’s doing the opposite, even though he knows Roosevelt did it right.

I believe that years from now historians will refer to the time in which we are living as the “Post-Bush Era.” Post-Bush because Bush will be seen as the idiot who fucked up everything. Hopefully there will be another era after this period, but who knows what crazy shit finna happen next? But it will […]

So if corporations have freedom to spend whatever they want on campaigns, and corporations can be owned by anyone, including foreigners, how are we now not China’s bitch? Cold war what? Communism who?

Also, it eliminates the ability of insurance companies to refuse coverage for pre-existing conditions. CUrrently coverage can and usually is refused for disorders […]

OK so I’ve been thinking about this all day. First of all, a caveat: I may completely contradict opinions that I have held as recently as this morning. My mind often changes, but I’m just trying to figure this all out… aloud. If we blame the politicians, it gets us nowhere. Just about all of […]

I’m trying to put some closure (well not really closure- can’t think of a better word) on this topic because the debate among friends and acquaintances has gotten heated. I respect anyone who does his/her best to vote for the right person. My friends are pretty much split down the middle with respect to Hillary/Obama. […]

This “Message to LGBT Americans” has been floating around for a few days. I think this document is great for reassuring Clinton’s constituents that they are voting for the right candidate, but it does nothing to change my loyalties, which admittedly can (and have) change(d) with the wind. Do you see the word ‘marriage’ anywhere […]

I haven’t been blogging much. There’s not much to say about the world except that the Democrats are not standing up to Bush. No excuses. We see through your grandstanding and your bullshit. The Democrats, as a whole, are not standing up to Bush. The hole is all that matters in this. That’s all.

I would not vote for president. I would vote for the other races, however.

…between a Republican and a Democrat? Both allow corporations to fasciastly run the state: His achievement required political clout, and that, too, is on display. Soon after he formed Citigroup, Congress repealed a Depression-era law that prohibited goliaths like the one Weill had just put together anyway, combining commercial and investment banking, insurance and stock […]

Edwards Drops the Gay Ball | CorrenteWire Let’s just make it simple. John, here’s what you say: I support full and equal rights for all Americans, period. That includes the right to marry, regardless of orientation. That’s not hard. As Pam notes, “moral values? handwringing and wishywashy “my daughter is for it before I was […]

A clinton/obama ticket would alienate the enormous percentage of americans who are anti-war. I would be a sure fire way to loose the election. Of course, they will blame it on the green party. When are democrats going to learn to court the far left in the same way the republicans court the far right?
