Tammy Baldwin Announces Run For U.S. Senate; Reflections from a Constituent

We all knew it was coming, I have even vocalized about it before. But today it was made official, Tammy Baldwin, my Congresswoman, announced she will run for the US Senate seat currently held by Herb Kohl, who will not be running for re-election. Most who read about this or hear the story on the radio will not really know what this means, so I thought I would lend my voice as a constituent of hers.

Rick Scott Subsidizing Class Warfare

Remember when Florida Governor Rick Scott instituted mandatory drug testing on welfare recipients? It was based upon the premise that it would save money by not having to pay benefits to those who were on drugs. Well, it turned out that 96% of welfare recipients are drug free.

At a secret right wing meeting in Colorado this past June, Charles Koch alarmingly referred to President Obama as ‘Saddam Hussein,’ saying that the right had to fight the ‘mother of all wars.’ His words rallied the right wing donors in attendance to donate millions of dollars to right wing organizations and causes.

Left-Wing Mainstream Media Hurting Democracy As Much As Right-Wing

People ask who the enemies are or who is hurting our movement in the media. They always point to Fox News but many fail to see just how much of a roll the left wing media especially MSNBC has to play in hurting the movement as well. Recently I unleashed a bombshell of a story that showed a clear connection between the Governor and some of our elections software.

Republicans have simply gone pledge crazy. It’s the newest fad among Republicans. Rather than keeping their oath to protect the American people, Republicans would rather sign pledges to do what their corporate masters want them to do.

Bruce Bartlett on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

Reaganomics Author Sees The Light: Bruce Bartlett’s Call For Higher Taxes On The Wealthy

Mr. Bartlett called for tax increases on the wealthy. That’s major. That’s fresh facing of reality from one of those who sold us the lower taxes idea in the first place. Even Bruce Bartlett — an architect of Reaganomics — has apparently seen the light. Given enough such calls for rationality, maybe we can get past the ‘starve the beast’ insanity and start doing what needs to be done.
