Are You Registered to Vote?

By Josh Marks, published on Sep 30, 2012

Tuesday was National Voter Registration Day. We are now only 37 days to the most important election of our lifetime. This is not just about reelecting President Obama, but electing moderates and progressives at every level of government who will work with President Obama in a constructive way instead of obstructing everything and tearing down Obama.

Democrats need to retake control of the House of Representatives and keep control in the Senate. There are also important elections at the state, city and local level. President Obama not only needs a Congress that will work with him, but... (more)

Last Night's Party, Today's Hangover

By Randy Mitchell, published on Sep 10, 2012

...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 indeed, so let’s review.

There were the expected, usual speakers all conveying and swearing their loyalty and oath to the Democratic Party. The morals, the values, the honesty, the goodwill towards man, the support for the unfortunate... (more)

Nothing is Free

By Randy Mitchell, published on Aug 28, 2012

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.... (more)

Science Starting to Win Climate Change Debate

By Josh Marks, published on Aug 10, 2012

...global warming to human activities. This of course makes it harder to convince people to change their carbon-based lifestyles and elect political leaders who will take urgent climate action. Which brings us to the sorry state of America's political leadership on climate change. President Obama has disappointed many by not speaking up about climate change and advocating an "all-of-the-above" energy strategy that puts clean energy and fossil fuels on equal footing. The problem with this strategy is that if all that carbon under the ground is extracted through oil drilling and fracking... (more)

Mobocracy and the Rule of Money

By dchaitanya, published on Jul 9, 2012

...India, you need to purchase tickets to visit and pray the god idols in Temples and to get sacred ‘prasadam’ (the food offered to God) you need to pay money. So, even the spiritual and devotional lives are ruled by money. In United States if you have more money you will get appointment with Obama, if you have no money, no Obama to you.

Therefore we must understand that ‘Democracy’ and ‘Rule of Law’ exists in books and ‘Mobocracy’ and ‘Rule of Money’ exists in practice. Therefore the Active Global Leaders must tell truth to the people around the world that in the... (more)

Will Voters Punish GOP for Punishing the American People?

By Josh Marks, published on Jul 6, 2012

...so they can hardly be accused of a partisan agenda.

“It’s Even Worse Than It Looks” labels today’s GOP as an “insurgent outlier” in American politics that “contributes disproportionately to its dysfunction.” The Republican leadership made it clear from day one President Obama took office that their mission was to make sure he spends only one term in the White House. Then in 2010, the House of Representatives was overtaken by right-wing extremists with a take-no-prisoners approach to (un)governing.

Anti-government Republicans have a strategy to “starve the... (more)

Good Morning, Socialism

By Randy Mitchell, published on Jun 30, 2012

...hold their offices; career bureaucrats mostly, with no care about balancing our nation’s checkbook. Our country cannot afford this so-called, constitutional monstrosity and it will sign the bankruptcy papers on our nation’s future. But hey, why not go for it, after all, it’s not President Obama’s money now is it? And truth be known, he’s got his millions for life.

Allow me to ask a question here: Can you show any Government-run agency, policy, or project that’s ever come in under budget? Within budget? How about well-managed like say, UPS, Southwest Airlines, or Apple... (more)

Obama Stands Up For Teachers, Firefighters, Police Officers

By Josh Marks, published on Jun 19, 2012

...hawks punishing the American people and holding back the economic recovery with draconian cuts to the public sector. But while it is empowering to hear Krugman talk about how to really create jobs and grow the economy through government spending, many of us have been waiting for President Obama to go on the offensive and back the radical right-wing Republicans into a corner.

If his recent weekly address is any indication, Obama is getting the message. He is starting to pound away at the obstructionist Republicans for blocking his jobs legislation that would put a million... (more)

Comparing Romney And Obama As Presidential Candidates

By Humble Opinion, published on May 19, 2012

With the 2012 primary season all said and done save for the nominations at both the Republican and Democratic conventions, we in the U.S. are now faced with having to choose between President Barak Obama and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney for the highest office in the land. So much is at stake in this election, that a careful review of both men, and what they stand for, should be considered by all voters with the utmost gravity. Starting with Romney, let's have a look at the record, their past history, and where they will most likely lead us.

Will GOP’S Solyndra Witch Hunt Backfire?

By Josh Marks, published on May 16, 2012

Solyndra was never about the facts. It was never meant to be. House Republicans put on a cynical show trial to attack the Obama Administration’s clean energy policies. They dragged Nobel Prize-winning physicist and Department of Energy Secretary Steven Chu to Capitol Hill in order to brow beat one of the most respected scientists in the world over the DOE Loan Guarantee Program.

Sadly, Republicans might have committed serious damage to American competitiveness in the global clean energy race. The United States is attempting to compete with China, Germany, Brazil and other nations whose... (more)
