Michael Moore Porky Pies

Michael Moore Porky Pies

We knew it then, but we also know that when Moore states that he had never owned shares, he’s blatantly lying, and maybe that merits a private visit to a confessional with a priest of his choice; or maybe it takes another interview with another British journalist to raise this fact for Moore to dispute and josh off.

New Bill Being Considered In Congress Could Shut Down Social Media Sites Crucial To ‘Occupy’ Protests

In what would be a stunning disregard for First Amendment rights, rumors are swirling that the Republican controlled Congress is now considering a new bill that could blackout sites such as Youtube, Twitter, Facebook, and other sites that utilize content generated by users.

Facts is Facts: Supply Side Economics Has Been an Epic Failure

Facts is Facts: Supply Side Economics Has Been an Epic Failure

The facts are as clear as the nose on your face. Not only has this bastard-child of an economic scheme been responsible for the bulk of the U.S. debt over the last three decades, which the vaunted defenders of the faith fail to even acknowledge, it has been responsible for the biggest upward redistribution of wealth in this country since the 1800s – the time of the great land barons.

Double Dip This!

Double Dip This!

Good news continues to mount on the economy. Third quarter profits were up 16% from last year’s third quarter numbers and the stock market is having its best run in God knows when. Yep, things are really looking bleak these days, for the doomsayers, that is.

The Radical Chic 2.0

The Radical Chic 2.0

The motto of the Occupy Wall Street Movement is ‘We Are the 99 Per Cent.’ Well, yes, they are, but the celebs who come to lend their all-important ‘moral’ support are not; nor do they intend to change their lifestyles to accommodate their so-called sympathies to the movement.

What the Right Fears Most About Occupy Wall Street

What the Right Fears Most About Occupy Wall Street

Whatever else you may want to call the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ movement – and for the record I still don’t know quite what to make of it a month in – know this much: this truly grassroots movement is not phony, nor does it appear to be some left-wing counterpart to the Tea Party.

Would ‘He’ Support the OWS Movement?  Judge for Yourself

Would ‘He’ Support the OWS Movement? Judge for Yourself

In our day these economic truths have become accepted as self-evident. We have accepted, so to speak, a second Bill of Rights under which a new basis of security and prosperity can be established for all—regardless of station, race, or creed.

The Pro-Palestinian Cause and Charges of Antisemitism

The Pro-Palestinian Cause and Charges of Antisemitism

The Israel-Palestine conflict is quite a complex one. There are two peoples who both lay claim to the same land. The backers of both sides often have a large amount of emotional and political investment in their cause. However, the pro-Palestinian cause is often labeled antisemitic.

More Southerners Contradict the Professional Left

Alan Jackson, Democrat, wrote a song two years ago about the effect corporations and their financed business entities were having on the rural and small-town South. It’s very poignant and conveys a strong message.

Occupy the Professional Left!

Occupy the Professional Left!

You see, they want the President to fail as much as the Teabaggers do, because then we’d have to use them as a rallying point again (they think), and we’d forget all the crap they sowed which enabled the opposition and get behind them as “Dear Leaders,” again.

Vindication in Libya

Vindication in Libya

No, like it or not, the current President, not his immediate predecessor – who never met a mission he couldn’t un-accomplish – nor the one before him, has put in place a new paradigm for American foreign policy that, if followed, might actually transform much of the Middle East and restore our badly tarnished reputation.

The Values Of The Christian Left

The Values Of The Christian Left

The right-wing claims to have some sort of monopoly on Christianity and they claim that liberals are godless heathens who have no values. Well, that couldn’t be further from the truth. The left-wing has Christians too, and they are collectively known as The Christian Left.

Why Occupy Wall Street Is Identical To The American Revolution, Part II

Why Occupy Wall Street Is Identical To The American Revolution, Part II

Occupy Wall Street is proving to be identical to the beginnings of the American Revolution. There will be no silencing of our voices, and any attempt to demonize the 99% is truly un-American. This article represents the second of a multi-part series of articles demonstrating this point.

Fox News Refuses To Give Obama Clear Kudos For Gadhafi Kill…

Fox News Refuses To Give Obama Clear Kudos For Gadhafi Kill…

These guys…Mr. Doocy and Mr. Bolton, are of the opinion that President Obama should have gone in after Gadhafi much earlier and bombed the hell out of Libya to find and get Gadhafi, instead of just supporting the rebels who were opposing Gadhafi.

Why Occupy Wall Street Is Analogous To The American Revolution

Where the Tea Party’s protests against TARP were directed only towards President Obama, Occupy Wall Street protests are directed to those elite few who have corrupted our government to suit their whims. Occupy Wall Street is a revolution in the making, as opposed to the Tea Party who only wanted to alienate liberals and Democrats.

Be Grateful And Tighten Your Belt. This Liberal Freeloader Has Had A Revelation

Be grateful. That is what I am hearing from my conservative friends and I’m listening and would suggest that all my liberal and moderate friends listen as well. This is life changing information.

OWS, You May Be Getting Ratf*cked

OWS, You May Be Getting Ratf*cked

Make no mistake: yes, there is an anarchist element at work within the OWS organisation. It’s they who are pushing the “voting-isn’t-worth-it-we-can-take-control-by-other-means” meme; but they are being aided and abetted, perversely, by ratf*ckers, paid for and financed by various GOP-supporting conservative organisations – probably even the Koch brothers.

Republicans Are Right – It Is About Personal Responsibility

You hear a lot of talk in Republican circles about ‘Personal Responsibility.’ It sounds great, doesn’t it? Americans are a rugged bunch. We like to do things ourselves.
