Herman Cain’s 15 Minutes Of Fame

Herman Cain’s 15 Minutes Of Fame

I hope Herman Cain enjoys his 15 minutes of fame, because once people find out what is in his 9-9-9 plan, his popularity is going to sink like a stone. It is the largest tax giveaway in history to corporate America, while it places an unfair tax burden onto the backs of the poor.

Occupy Wall Street: Tea Parties For Smart People

A surge of re-energized American citizens positioned in cities across the country are carrying out the grassroots ‘Occupy Wall Street’ movement (or the ’99 Percent Movement’) with an intelligent and provoking agenda that invokes real patriotic citizenship – much unlike the backwards Tea Party protests that have done little more than pervert our founding ideals while hidden under the guise of Americanism.

Governor Rick Perry (R-TX)

Rick Perry Thinks The American Revolution Occurred In The 1500s

The only year Rick Perry needed to remember was 1776. But he couldn’t even do that. Perry was asked about state’s rights by a local ABC affiliate, and apparently he thinks America declared independence from England a full two centuries earlier than the actual date. He made the revolutionary blunder while visiting Dartmouth College after the GOP Debate last night.

Beat Your Wife? If You Move To Topeka, KS You Won’t Get Charged With A Crime

On October 5, 2011, I was alerted to a little article in Feministing wherein the author referred to the situation being discussed as a ‘clusterf**k.’ This got my immediate attention–thinking perhaps Dad was sending me a message–and I discovered that due to budget cuts, Shawnee County’s (Topeka) District Attorney, Chad Taylor, would no longer be prosecuting misdemeanors, including domestic violence cases.

Private Education: Just Another Scam

Private Education: Just Another Scam

In the light of everything going on with the Wall Street protests, the economy, etc., there is another issue, admittedly smaller, that needs addressing. The American university system, despite the high quality of education you can achieve, is a scam.

The Right-Wing Continues Class Warfare With Pathetic Website

The Right-Wing Continues Class Warfare With Pathetic Website

The Republicans are proud. I get that. They are hard workers. I get that. They don’t think of themselves as victims. I get that. I get all of that because I am exactly like them, with one exception. I understand that our system is broken. I understand that money has corrupted the political process. I understand that Wall Street controls our economy.

Republican Hatred For Obama Is Killing America

Republican Hatred For Obama Is Killing America

Democratic leaders immediately voiced support and empathy for the protesters. So in order to not look like the bad guys, the Republicans decided that maybe it wasn’t such a good idea to ridicule this growing “mob” because the vastly increasing number of protesters might not appreciate being called thugs. So the Republicans switched their song to – the protesters are angry with the Obama administration for creating class warfare.

America’s Secret Love Affair With ‘Socialism’

America’s Secret Love Affair With ‘Socialism’

Forget about Republican or Democratic ideologies and just look at the facts of where things stand in this country right now. The richest 0.1 % of Americans own more wealth than the lower 50% combined. The richest 5% has more wealth than the lower 90% combined. And 20% of Americans own over 85% of the country’s total wealth.

…And We Are Not Going to Take This Anymore!

The talking heads on T.V. cannot seem to embrace the fact that this protest, the Occupying going on all around America, has no specific agenda. It appears that, somehow, they have missed the point.

Occupy Philadelphia: Day One Journal

We already have heard false statements by so called ‘experts’ about how this protest is leaderless, unorganized and nothing but a bunch of 20 something whites suburbanites who are spoiled and have nothing better to do. Sound familiar? It should if you are a baby boomer in the streets of the 1960’s and 1970’s fighting peacefully to end American racial inequality and an unjust war.
