Who Am I? A Ten Year Old's Question.

By darinlhammond, published on Nov 8, 2012

...already this year by an 8" snow storm before Halloween. Madison also ranks among the most conservative, and Mormon, counties in the United States. Google no longer catalogues the 2008 story of a disturbing bus ride in Madison School District, but I am alive to attest the truth of it. After Obama won the first election, children on an elementary school bus chanted the words that surely came from the mouths of their parents: "Assassinate Obama." The story was a brief national scandal. Madison County, a cold place indeed.

Thankfully, that incident has long since passed. The... (more)

America, Times Two

By Randy Mitchell, published on Nov 8, 2012

...much different back then because people were much different. There was greater unity throughout the land as I grew up, and the American dream was alive and well to all who were willing to work and succeed. America had its problems, but an America back then was nothing like it is today.

Obama won off of his socialistic, liberal principles and America’s ever-changing national demographics. He pandered to the minority vote, the poor, the unemployed, the unions, the non-believers, the naïve, the uneducated, the single women, the youth movement, and the elderly and disabled scared to ... (more)

US election campaign ends with final blitz by Obama & Romney

By zaycev, published on Nov 6, 2012

...in political advertising, the 2012 election campaign has entered its final 24 hours as voters prepare to deliver their verdict on Tuesday.At the end of one of the most polarising, relentless and expensive campaigns in recent US political history, the final batch of polls on Monday showed Barack Obama and Mitt Romney basically where they were at the start of the year: stuck in a dead heat.Both teams claim to be on course to win, as they completed what should have been their final blitz of the swing states. Obama, accompanied by rock star Bruce Springsteen, took in Wisconsin and two stops in... (more)

Garbage: Romney's Tax Plan

By Risa Peris, published on Oct 26, 2012

... income, not widening the deficit and not increasing the tax burden on the poor or middle class. Romney’s plan, as it stands, would cut taxes for rich families and raise them for everyone else.

Over the course of the campaign Romney has stated that 47% of this country does not matter and Obama recently attacked Romney in the second debate of supporting the nation's 1% at the expense of everyone else. Taking these statements at face value you might dismiss them based on partisanship interests and unfortunate propaganda-like mudslinging. However, a closer look at the details and math... (more)

Recovery Act is the Number One Reason to Re-elect President

By Josh Marks, published on Oct 23, 2012

Republicans keep falsely claiming President Obama’s $787 billion economic stimulus, officially known as the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), was a massively wasteful failure. Right now the GOP is using all the money from their right-wing billionaire donors to inundate swing state voters with their anti-stimulus, pro-austerity message.

But in reality the stimulus is a smashing success. It is more than 50 percent bigger than Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal and has begun to profoundly change the United States of America in ways many of us are just beginning to realize.... (more)

Ring Your Own Telephone

By Randy Mitchell, published on Oct 18, 2012

The Economy. Money. Jobs. Your Future, and the future of our youth. It’s filling the minds of everyone these days especially during this super-heated political election. People are more concerned than ever about what their future holds, and rightly so. Millions are looking for work, or have stopped searching at all with little hope. It isn’t the America I grew up in, and one in desperate need of a new direction.

America was founded on self-reliant, entrepreneurial principles. A nation where people are free to dictate their own future, create their own jobs, and look out for themselves,... (more)

"The Vietnam War is a distant memory to the American people"

By Lartinos, published on Oct 16, 2012

The Vietnam War is a distant memory that most Americans do not understand. This makes it a perpetual problem in society, as people continue to just go along with what other people are doing. Just like Germany under Hitler, people will go with the status quo flow until it drowns them. Propaganda can become the truth: if you try to question someone about it, they will exclaim you are wrong. We are a country chasing its tail as the two-party system plays us and perpetrates wars in the name of the ruling class. It uses the media to program society to think a certain way because most don’t... (more)

Arrogance at its Finest

By Randy Mitchell, published on Oct 13, 2012

...for the cameras and make up some much-needed ground his boss lost from days prior. Well, he probably guzzled down a couple of Red Bulls before clearly making an ass out of himself building on his momentum as being one of the most disrespected, and laughed at politicians of our era. I guarantee Obama was gripping his TV with white knuckles hoping good ole’ Joe could get through this while keeping his famous gaffes to a minimum. He didn’t, and I for one was ashamed, as an American, to realize he’s a heartbeat away from currently being the leader of the free world.

Joe was... (more)

Will Obama Ride 7.8% Jobless Rate to Reelection?

By Josh Marks, published on Oct 5, 2012

The Denver debate should be a distant memory after today’s jobs report that the unemployment rate fell to 7.8 percent. That is the jobless rate when Obama took office in January 2009 when he inherited the worst economic disaster since the Great Depression. Seven sounds a lot better than eight and much, much better than the peak of 10 percent in October 2009. Significantly, in the mind of the American public, 7.8 percent sounds closer to the 7.2 percent unemployment figure that Ronald Reagan rode to reelection in 1984.

What Obama has achieved trumps Reagan because he inherited a global... (more)

What's Wrong With Being Rich?

By Randy Mitchell, published on Oct 1, 2012

...was formed as an alternative; a place where anyone can come across our shores and feel free to exercise their rights as individual human beings; to create, to earn, to develop and grow, not to be totally dependent on something like government. But, the Great War against anything rich began when Obama was elected.

Right now, we have leaders whose belief goes against the American way. They want the masses to be dependent on government, to rally against the rich, to serve as poster children for big government and the changing of American society. They want only a few to sit at the... (more)
