Occupy Wall Street Could Be A Seminal Moment…Or Not

The spontaneity of OWS interested me. Spontaneity can be good, sometimes, but I wanted these people protesting to have a goal or a concrete aim or at least a leader who could articulate one and the same – otherwise, they risked getting taken advantage of by people who had their own spurious agenda to promote.

Occupy Wall Street, Occupy The Inevitable

America is supposed to be the land of opportunity, and it is, but where the bulk of those opportunities go and who they have traditionally gone to in the past is not as much about the home of the free and the land of the brave as one might be inclined to patriotically believe.

The Threat of Terrorism vs the Threat to Democracy

The Threat of Terrorism vs the Threat to Democracy

The Obama Administration decided to pass up an opportunity to appeal the decision of the 11th Circuit court judges ruling the individual mandate as stated in the Affordable Health Care for America Act (Obamacare) as unconstitutional. Due to the fact that judges from the 6th Circuit court issued a separate ruling to uphold the bill as constitutional, the case will likely be subject to a Supreme Court hearing just months before the 2012 election.

Maybe It Was Us We Have Been Looking For

That is what this protest is all about. It’s about the big banks taking taxpayer bailouts then refusing to give loans to individuals and small businesses.

It’s about the mortgage and foreclosure crises, companies who are laying off thousands of employees to keep their profit-margins up, gas prices, oil industry profits, income inequality, climate change and corporate outsourcing, tax-avoidance, loopholes and greed.

Jon Stewart Shows Us An Entire Racist Landscape

Rick Perry is arguably in a lot of political trouble over the name of a camp, and with good reason, any use of the ‘n’ word is an unnecessary and offensive relic of an ugly past. Is this sort of racial insensitivity unique to Texas or even the South?

The American People Are Damned

For decades, the US government has been selling out its citizens in pursuit of money and power. Due to actions undertaken at home and abroad, they have made the world a more dangerous place for Americans and betrayed the values America was founded on by allowing the rise of a police state.
