Are Wealthy Americans Always Conservative?

Are Wealthy Americans Always Conservative?

To some liberals, it may appear that the GOP and the upper class are in a loving marriage with each other. But does the upper class truly love the GOP?

Right Wing and Debt Ceiling Extortion

Right Wing and Debt Ceiling Extortion

The debt ceiling is a procedural vote to raise the official ‘Debt Ceiling’ to match the level of debt incurred through previously passed legislation. Or in other words, this vote merely allows the U.S. to raise it’s debt ceiling to match the costs already accrued. The raising of the debt ceiling is not a ‘blank check’ for new spending.

Why saying ‘I’m in the Tea Party’ is the same as saying ‘I eat glue and like it’

Why saying ‘I’m in the Tea Party’ is the same as saying ‘I eat glue and like it’

Does anyone else have that same moment of “what did you just say?” when a member of the “Tea Party” opens their mouth? Does anyone think they even understand what they are saying when they open their mouth? Does anyone else agree that they seem to have a Rupert Murdoch/Koch […]

President Obama is Like George W in Fairy Tales and Right-Wing Fantasies

President Obama is Like George W in Fairy Tales and Right-Wing Fantasies

Okay, I’ve had it, I’ve really had it, with people – including some ‘progressives’ – who continue to beat that boring and nonsensical drum that President Obama is just like George W. ‘OBusha?’ Really?

Trickle-Down Economics, Rich Uncle Pennybags, the Debt Ceiling Debate, and You…in 15 minutes.

Have you ever known of a business owner to lay off employees because they couldn’t pay their income taxes? Alternatively, have you ever known of a business owner to create jobs for people to sit around all day long and read the newspaper, drink free coffee, and loot the office supply room? (And I am not referring to politicians and pundits here)

What Republicans Aren’t Telling You About the Debt

If you’ve been tuning in to C-Span this week and watching members of congress speak on the debt ceiling, you’ve probably noticed a pattern amongst the Republicans. They say things like ‘American families tighten their belts, why can’t the U.S government?’. This is quite an intruiging question, considering Republicans are the ones who really need to do the belt tightening.

The Lie Behind “Cultural Marxism” and a message to foolish Republican Nativists

It is easy to get people to fear all social programs when they are not educated in the difference between the Soviets and Social Security

The Corporate Chicken or the Egg?

Where should the Government put the focus? As Americans we pay taxes to the federal, state, and local governments. This revenue is meant to support the Government so it can continue to meet its obligations; which include national defense, parks, airports, shipping ports, transportation, education, etc.

Will The Real “Job Creators” Please Stand UP!

Will The Real “Job Creators” Please Stand UP!

Republicans have created the myth the rich are the ‘Job Creators’. I’ll grant you they are but one ingredient to the recipe, for they offer the supply of jobs. But this does not mean that they, in and of themselves, solely create jobs. No matter how cheap a product may be produced or how cheap a service may be rendered, without demand for those products and services no additional jobs will ever be created.

Tea Party Shows Its Anti-Gay, Bigotry Hand

Tea Party Shows Its Anti-Gay, Bigotry Hand

For over a year, Tea Party supporters, activists and demonstrators have touted their supposedly pro-America, anti-Big-Government-taxes sentiments as being the fundamental keys to their masses. Yet, over and over again, evidence has piled up against the Party for its racist, homophobic and religiously-intolerant rhetoric even as they claim such evidence does not exist.

Every Day, I’m More Gay

A mocking review of the hypocrisy and homophobic ignorance of the political right and religious fundamentalists in the United States and beyond.

Social Security Isn’t In Crisis – WE ALREADY PAID FOR IT!

Social Security Isn’t In Crisis – WE ALREADY PAID FOR IT!

Republicans claiming Social Security adds to the deficit is a lot like wayward youngster, to whom you loaned a couple trillion bucks on Friday, coming to you on Monday, all hung over, and griping that if he gives you twenty bucks for lunch, he’ll have to borrow from the credit card to pay his mortgage.

Obama Gets Angry, Republicans Repeating History

Obama Gets Angry, Republicans Repeating History

When Americans blamed Republicans for the government shut down in 1995, one would think the GOP learned their lesson. But the eternally short memories of Republicans and their apparent failure to remember historical facts once again compels them to try something that failed. What is it about the GOP that makes them believe that they can hold America hostage?

The Wrong Abortion Debate

The Wrong Abortion Debate

Abortion. It’s one of those wedge issues that causes some pretty heated debate. Few people have no opinion on this subject in fact. And it’s easy to understand why. We are talking about human life, the creation of human life, religious philosophies, religious dogma, complex moral considerations, social values and personal values.

Is The GOP Right on Household Economics?

Household Economics; right-winged candidates enjoy and often pledge to implement this economic ideology in the offices that they hold. The practice of tightening your belt when times are rough, and doing the opposite when money is in abundance; household economics sounds great to the right–winged base in this country.

Trading Potential Peace For War And Abandoning Patriotism For Treason

How patriotic is it for Republicans to turn on an American President, and instead show their support for the leader of a foreign nation? That’s exactly what the Republicans have done, so how can they truly care about their country when their loyalty is to a foreign nation’s leader?

Republicans; You Lie! Tax Cuts For The Wealthy Do NOT Create Jobs!

Multiple analyses show that tax rates have no direct correlation to GDP or job growth, yet Republicans tell us over and over and over that they do. I’m tired of hearing this myth being peddled by the Republican Party and their wannabe-millionaire supporters.

Of Cabbages and Kings: It’s Not That Obama’s Naive; It’s Just That the President’s Not White

To say that race matters, regarding matters to the Right of the political spectrum, is an understatement. Who doesn’t remember many of the people showing up for Sarah Palin’s campaign rallies in 2008, with their stuffed monkeys called ‘Little Hussein,’ the elderly woman challenging McCain with her misguided fact that Candidate Obama was an Arab, the shouts and jeers, even to one man shrieking out that Obama must be killed during a Palin pow-wow.

The Language of Shared Sacrifice

President Obama uses the term ‘shared sacrifice’ and falls into a Republican trap. It’s time to share the costs of the recovery with everyone, including the Republican’s billionaire patrons.

How We Got To The Debt Ceiling

How We Got To The Debt Ceiling

Republicans try to blame Obama for increasing the National Debt, even though it’s only gone up 25% since he was in office, and it went up 75% under Bush, with Republican support. They also fail to mention that 95% of Obama’s budget deficit is carryover spending from the Bush Administration’s policies.
