As Mitt Romney becomes increasingly the caricature of plutocratic indifference and the party as a whole is splashed in the muddy wake, the question is worth asking; how did we get here? The evidence points to two factors:
1). The opinion held by the majority of our highest judiciary that money equals speech.
2). The obstructionist spirit among Republican legislators that those whose money is spent to skew public opinion ought not to be subject to the economic consequences of public opinion.
If we can't keep money from exerting influence upon the actions of our elected... Read More
The basic principal behind the American Dream was "equal opportunity for all and privilege for none." The opportunity for upward mobility, without the boot of feudal lords upon our necks. This could all change next year. In late 2011 Mitt Romney revealed how he would facilitate the massive wealth transfer to our would-be lords:
"Don’t try to stop the foreclosure process. Let it run its course and hit the bottom. Allow investors to buy homes, put renters in them, fix the homes, and let it turn around and come back up."
Romney's tax plan helps this along, as well as working... Read More
I wasn’t able to watch the DNC last week, at least not in its entirety. But, that was okay because I knew I couldn't stomach it, and I was right after reading the President’s speech and seeing excerpts from such speakers as Nancy Pelosi, VP Biden, and the big dog, the one and only, the man with the extra-long pointed finger saying, “He didn’t do that,” the Democrats answer to God almighty, the miracle, Bubba himself, Bill Clinton. Now, Clinton gave a good speech, making his case for his policies. But, news flash to all who will listen: Barack Obama is no Bill Clinton. It was all quite the spectacle... Read More
Five thousand were killed in Syria
In August alone.
Assad, their president and an optometrist, is in love with his wife
And goes shopping to make her happy
A UK university still call to boycott Israel.
Assad does not live in the UK any more.
The Arab world blames Israel
They must have planned it all along
Especially the failure of the UN
To stop the bloodshed.
The same UN that appointed Libya
To head the Human Right Commission.
Barbara, my neighbor, is truly upset
Her favorite chocolate... Read More
Perhaps one should agree after the castigation by the Indian Supreme Court on the reckless and irresponsible live coverage of the anti-terrorist operations of Indian Security forces in the 26/11 terrorist attack at Mumbai Air port in 2008, by some Television News Channels repeatedly telecasting the operational movements of the Indian anti-terrorist forces so as to be watched by every one including the international terrorists across the world, in their live converage.
While confirming the capital punishment awarded by the Indian Lower Courts to the Ajmal Kasab a Pakistan based terrorist,... Read More
*Before I get started, a note on terminology; herein, the words "libertarian," "liberal" and "neoliberal" will be used interchangeably. The philosophy commonly referred to as liberalism here in the United States will be referred to as "democratic" with a lower case "d" in order to avoid as much confusion as possible*
The neoliberal movement relies on two defining sophisms to justify its belligerence against the institution of democracy. The first is that democracy will inevitably lead to tyranny. The second is that, given this first sophism, all violations of human rights are justifiable... Read More
Do you recognize the image to the side? If you’re like a surprising number of Americans, you don’t.
It’s our national debt clock, quickly spinning toward the out-of-control figure of sixteen trillion dollars. That’s sixteen trillion dollars—in other words, sixteen thousand billion George Washington’s! An astonishing number and one that’s simply in-comprehendible by people like me. It represents the sins of both, Republican and Democratic managers who are responsible for putting our country in such a predicament, severely hurting our economic power among the world as a financial leader....
