Here we are a month after the election is over, and the majority of the people in this country of have said that they or we want a definite change. Unfortunately, the republican party or " teabaggers" as they have come to be known as just flatly refuse to accept the fact that they LOST!. That's right they lost. They continue to pretend that they are still in control and that they can actually dictate what happens from this point forward. They think that it's going to go the way it went during the Debt ceiling debates. Judging from the way that the POTUS is reacting to the so-called proposals that the repubs have offered up so far, I don't think so, not this time. The primary problem that the GOP has is the Grover Norquist pledge that they all signed before they even took their oath of office in the House or the Senate. Which begs the question, who is Grover? He's not an elected official or appointed for that matter. Why do the GOP members of the House and Senate kiss this man's ass. HeRead More »from GROVER WHO!!!?

You know, what's really mind blowing is the thought that there are millions of people in this country who are willing to close thier eye and hold thier noses in order to vote for Mitt Romney. What does he have to do for you die-hards to wake up and realize the even though he is running on the Republican ticket, he really doesn't give a tinkers dam about the majority of the people in this country. The only reason that he associates with the common man is because he needs them to help him get elected. You can tell from his conversation that he doesn't hang out with the average guy. Not that it matters that he hangs out with the super rich and the mega rich, because that's who he really is. What he knows about how the rest of us live, you could stick in your eye and it would even bother you. He doesn't get the middle and lower classes, I mean who openly bets $10,000 as though it is for $10.00 or $100.00 and not give it a second thought. In these days and times with the economy struggling
People have said that Mit Wilard Romney is a flip flopper, that he flips from one side of an issue to the other and that he has no core beliefs. Actually, the guy can change positions on any issue so fast it seems like he's on both sides at the same time. He is the only man alive that can completely surround an issue by himself. He's a shape shifter and he has shown time and time again that he is willing to say anything, depending on to whom he is speaking . He tries to twist himself into whatever shape he thinks is necessary to be "that guy", the "good old boy" or what ever works. My question is, why would a man as rich as Romney is, want to be President. The fact that he has never wanted for anything in his entire life and he has always been able to afford everything that he ever needed makes it hard to believe that he has the slightest idea of what the average person in this country goes through on a daily basis. Why would someone of his background want to be President. He mightRead More »from Will the Real Mittens Please Stand Up

I mean the birth of the OWS movement. Finally, the young people in this country are waking up. They realize that unless they do someting they will be doomed to pay for the many,many sins of our generation. They know that the older generation,republicans in particular are trying to sell our demacrocy to the highest bidder.They, OWS, have forced America to take a closer look at itself. What we have seen ain't pretty. Since the legal election of President Obama this country has started to turn itself inside out. America is and always has been one of the most racist countries in this hemisphere. We pretend to be such a democratic and caring country. but in reality, it's all a front, at least that use to be the case. Now though, since Obama took office, the gloves have come off. No more mister nice guy. Back when the teaparty stepped into the fray, that's when we really started to
I know that everyone, and I mean everyone is affraid of someone or something and that of course includes me. I said that to say this, the people who are going out of thier way to disrupt the town hall meetings are without a doubt scared out of thier wits. I mean those people other than the ones being instructed and paid by the wizards behind the curtains ( the insurance and drug companies). I'm talking about all those regular and unpaid citizens who truely live in the area of the town hall meeting have been listening and actually believing all the propaganda and hate speech. The really sad part about this is that they really think that they know what they are talking about. These are the same people who never try on thier own to find out if what is scaring them. Things like " death panels and putting grandma to sleep or forced abortions or concentration camps" and one of the most puzzling bits of ridiculous misinformation, comparing Obama to Hitler. HUH!? The reason that it is so easyRead More »from Fear Does the Trick
Speaking to the people who are doing all they can to destroy the democratic process by not allowing information to be deciminated by the people who really know the unadulterated truth at the town hall meetings. You are as much a victim as the people that you are denying thier civil rights. If you succede in killing this bill that would force the insurance companies to play fair, you are just putting more money in the pockets of the people who helped get us to the place that this country is in today. Don't you realize that you are doing thier work for them( The insurance companies and the drug companies). If you continue to listen to and believe all the hate-speak and made up stories about the Obama admistration wanting to euthinize our old people and FEMA concentration camps and Obama is not a real american and so on, and so on you have allowed yourself to become a victim and a tool. Are you really that easily misled. What are you affraid of? Hasn't eight years of the Bush (I'mRead More »from A Culture of Fear
What is wrong with our so-called leaders,both here in Cali and in D.C.. What is so hard to understand? The state, the whole country needs money. We all need for the banks to start acting like banks and let the money go. They've been given our money to stimulate the economy, that's right our money and yet they stand like deers caught in the headlights frozen along with the money and the credit. What was the point in giving them that first 350 billion dollars if they are afraid to move and now they are getting ready to give them even more, Lord I hope that this time there is at least one person watching the money.Read More »from Here we go again
The new economic stimulus package is finally squeezing through the senate with the republicans kicking and screaming all the way. "Too much wasteful spending,too much pork,needs more tax cuts, well, that idea with the tax cuts to stimulate the economy was one of"Li'l Bush's idea and guess what?, it didn't work then and it won't work now. As the old saying goes,"you have to
I know that the powers that be in Washintion,D.C. Repubs in particular are at thier wits end. They find themselves between a hardplace and a rock, so, they are doing what they have been doing for the past 8 years, obstruct and delay. They haven't come up with a viable economic plan for the whole time except"cut taxes". That seems to be thier answer to everything. Cut taxes and deregulate, that should fix it,...right? Well, as we have seen, it didn't work and it will never work, why? I'll tell you why, because without taxes how do we pay for the things that need so badly to be taken care of. I know that President Obama is asking us to take a big leap of faith but at least he has a plan and he is willing to stand behind his plan. The repubs keep saying that the plan will cost too much but, we already know what happened during this past 8 years has been anything but a solution to the situation that we are in now. They created it and now they have the unmitigated gall to try and stall whatRead More »from Now that he's in office, let him do his job
Today friends, was the beginning of a new era. The start of something that has been "a long time coming".Thank you George W. Bush for, without your bumbling and ineptitude this might not have happened so soon. When I say soon, I mean in my life time. I've been waiting all my life for this moment and thanks to the grace of God, my dream has come true. I always told my kids that, I believed that we would have a man of color as our Commander and Chief some day but...not in my lifetime. I thank God that I was wrong. I know that President Obama is not the Messiah but, for some of us he is the closest thing to it.You see, I know what racism really feels like. Growing up in the South during the past few decades I knew Jim Crow personally. I know what it was like to be forced to ride on the back of the bus, even though there were empty seats in the front. I know what it was like to drink from "colored" water fountains or to have to hold my urine because there were no restrooms for "colored"Read More »from Now we are truely part of the American Dream
Isn't it strange that the senate after approving a here-to-fore unheard of Gift of over 750billion dollar to the banks and stockmarkets without any requirements or restrictionts or oversight would have the unmitigated gall to put such strangling restrictions on people who actually work for a living,the auto industry. As a matter of fact, when Paulson(Treasury secretary) was asked what was being done with the 350 billion that the banks had actually taken.....he didn't have a clue. Well, it looks like they did it to us one more time, while we were looking right at them. The money that the banks got was suppose to be used to loosen up the credit market. Instead, the banks are sitting on it while they continue in thier same old ways. So what was acomplished?, we the people got screwed one more time. Here's another thought, what ever happened to the money that was suppose to be generated throught the California state lotto that was then suppose to be used to help with the cost of ourRead More »from WHAT HAPPENED TO THE MONEY
